Tag Games has announced that they are working on a new title called Car Jack Streets, a sandbox-game that looks just as cool like the retro Grand Theft Auto games. The developers over at Tag Games know that many iPhone- and iPod Touch-users are big GTA-fans, so that’s why they’ve created this top-down view action game. The player starts with gambling bets of over $1 million, so your task is to pay the mob back by doing dirty jobs. Steal cars, run shipments, deliver pizza or take out gang bangers just to pay those bastards back. Here’s a list of more game features:
Top-down 3D visuals for a real sense of vertigo
A huge variety of vehicles to jack including helicopters
An infinite combination of criminal tasks available each day
Advanced police and mob AI
Great audio and much, much more
Car Jack Streets is due to come out January/February 2009.
The App Store is only a few months old and yet there are already a plethora of maze based puzzle games available for gamers to choose from. Amongst them are the popular (and rather good) Dizzy Bee and Labyrinth, the slightly less impressive Spinner and the ridiculously impossible Balloonacy. Even at this early stage in iPhone gaming any new title joining this crowded genre is going to have to be rather special to make an impact. Tag Games certainly hope that Rock’n’Roll fits the bill but will this maze game leave players spinning in delight or wishing they’d stayed away? Read the rest of this entry »
Since today you can get Rock’n'Roll for $4.99 in the App Store. This action puzzler developed by TAG Games uses the touch functionalities and the accelerometer of the iPhone and iPod Touch. You play as ‘Roll’, a rounded character who’s job is to enter the spinning mazes of the Flint Island to recover the Evil Sky Spirits musical notes and save his best friend. The game contains two modes, quest and race against the clock, and features 30 levels in three different environments.
Tag Games has just released a first video of its new puzzle/action game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Rock’n'Roll looks a lot like an extremely colorful version of LocoRoco for Sony’s PlayStation Portable. You simply tilt the iPhone to guide your character through the maze. The story behind Rock’n’Roll is a familiar concoction of friendship, music, kidnapping and blown fuses! You play as ‘Roll’, a rather well rounded character, who must enter the spinning mazes of Flint Island in an effort to recover the Evil Sky Spirits musical notes and save his best friend ‘Roll’ from imprisonment. Check out this posts for Rock’n'Roll screenshots!
Paul Farley from Tag Games just gave us a fresh Rock’n'Roll factsheet. As he already mentioned in our interview, Rock’n'Roll is now being ported from other mobile phone versions to the iPhone. The story behind Rock’n’Roll is a familiar concoction of friendship, music, kidnapping and blown fuses! You play as ‘Roll’, a rather well rounded character, who must enter the spinning mazes of Flint Island in an effort to recover the Evil Sky Spirits musical notes and save his best friend ‘Roll’ from imprisonment. Jamie Bryan of Tag Games has the following to say about Rock’n'Roll:
“Rock’n’Roll has already delighted mobile gamers across the globe and we are confident its appealing mixture of bright, colourful cartoon graphics and unique game-play will be a huge hit with iPhone owners as well.”
“The iPhone has enabled us to realise our original creative vision for this game through the use of motion and touch controls. The addition of this tactile interaction with the game really has added a new dimension to the game-play and taken the overall experience to a new level!”
This week Tag Games announced the development of Astro Ranch for the iPhone, Nintendo DS and N-Gage. The game looks like a fun mix of some Animal Crossing with some Harvest Moon in a nice 50′s sci-fi jacket, and Paul Farley from Tag Games took some time to tell us more about their first iPhone-game. We also found out more about Rock’n'Roll, the second iPhone-game of this European iPhone developer. Read the rest of this entry »
Today TAG Games confirmed the development of Astro Ranch to PocketGamer. Astro Ranch looks a bit like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, but opposed to those two games Astro Ranch is set somewhere in the 50′s in a sci-fi world with motion- and touch-controls with some cool connectivity features. Sindy Starlight is your name and you’re an intrepid space explorer who starts an own ranch while exploring the planet and becoming friends with the locals.
You’ll have to build up your own ranch, pan for gold by shaking the iPhone, compete in various contests, build fences and throw lasso’s to runaway animals by giving the screen a tap. The game will have an original soundtrack and a user-controlled camera. The best feature is the possibility to trade items and send messages and gifts to other gamers who have Astro Ranch.
TAG Games also announced the production of Rock’n'Roll for the iPhone, it’s due to come out before Astro Ranch which is set for release somewhere in March 2009. After the iPhone launch Astro Ranch will also be released for the Nintendo DS and Nokia N-Gage. More screenshots of Astro Ranch after the break. Read the rest of this entry »
