Gorilla Gondola

Que sólo Nintendo haya aprovechado el potencial de un personaje como King Kong para sus juegos no significa que el resto de compañías abandonen su intento por acercarnos al gran simio. En Gorilla Gondola , sin embargo, abandonamos el mundo de las plataformas para centrarnos en los dos aspectos más innovadores que puede ofrecernos un dispositivo iOS: la pantalla táctil y los sensores de movimiento.

Nuestro gorila se subirá a la cabina de un teleférico para conseguir su ración de plátanos diaria, y nosotros deberemos controlar sus movimientos para esquivar los obstáculos y conseguir nuestro preciado desayuna a través de 8 niveles distintos, cada uno de ellos con unas características propias. Saltando sobre la cabina haremos que nuestro peso la hunda o eleve, y girando el dispositivo hacia uno u otro lado controlaremos la velocidad y posición de la misma. Cuesta hacerse con el control a la perfección, pero la curva de dificultad está muy bien implementada.

Tremendously grateful for the welcome that the premiere of the Arcadesfera section had among you last week, we return one more Friday with the most outstanding releases of the week . Today, you also have several hours ahead of you for very few euros, or even for free, so take advantage.

Play the game, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective , which after its success on Nintendo DS now comes to Apple devices. The rest of the meat on the spit is put on by the skill of Gorilla Gondola , the addiction to the mechanics of Off The Leash and the unbridled action of Robokill 2 .

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

The week has an undisputed protagonist, and if Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective already earned our most sincere love when it arrived on Nintendo DS, the landing on the AppStore deserves our most sincere applause for Capcom, who has also taken care of localizing it into Spanish so we can follow its spectacular script without any language problems.

If in the vast majority of games our goal is to survive, here we have it pretty raw, among other things because we started the story dead. Thus, as a ghost, we must use our powers to go back in time four minutes and avoid the unpleasant situations that their argument brings us, possessing objects and making combinations that avoid a future apparently already written. A must play that you can try for free with its first two episodes. The pack with the rest of the chapters will cost you about 10 euros.

In a hypothetical future and after having finished with the download pages, the FBI launches a hunt for the new public enemy number one: the dog. It manages to escape the police by fighting the clock and creating an army of dogs that can defeat the oppressive forces. All right, the argument is not that it’s so hard, but the truth is that the introduction to it is not even close.

Off The Leash will allow us to control a dog in its flight from the police, recovering other companions and swallowing treats, both equally valid for leveling up and gaining speed and points. YouTube

Robokill 2: Leviathan Five

We are tired of seeing the mechanics of classic flash games come to iOS, usually with less fortune than expected. That’s not to say that titles like Robokill 2: Leviathan Five don’t manage to convey that same arcade spirit, while at the same time enhancing it with attractive new features.

Be careful because what this second installment offers us is not exactly a little. A double-joystick shooter with RPG dyes in which we must guide a robot hungry for blood through 600 different rooms, distributed through 12 missions in which we end up with more than 25 types of enemies using more than 30 different weapons. Come on, you won’t get bored.
