Barry the Cheapo’s Giveaway: Chu Chu Rocket iPhone Version

Seeing as how I love the iPhone version of Chu Chu Rocket, and it’s 99 cents until December 1st, I’ll give a copy to the first person who posts in the comments! The only rules are that you have to own an iOS device, you have to not already own the game, and I will only pay for it while it is 99 cents. Comment now before the booze wears off and I become a money grabbing jerk again!

Gunstar Heroes arrives on iPhones

One of my favorite Genesis games, Gunstar Heroes, is now on the iPhone (and iPod Touch as well, I assume). The game will run you $2.99. Wow, that is like a cup of coffee for one of the best Genesis games ever.

If that wasn’t enough, the game has bluetooth multiplayer. That is pretty awesome.

SEGA patching Chu Chu Rocket, adding 100 extra levels

Gah, you get a game and then you have to patch it. Isn’t that annoying? Well, this time, you might actually be happy about patching up your game. Not only will this patch fix annoying bugs, it will add 100 extra levels. Full details:
• iPad Game Center for OS 4.2 iPads
• 100 Extra levels added to Puzzle mode
• Ghost arrows added to Multiplayer mode
• Arrow placement UI improved
• Multiplayer lobby UI improved

• Rare crash-at-launch bug fixed
• Bug that occasionally caused some achievements not to unlock fixed
• Mouse-entering-rocket audio issue fixed
• Performance upgrades

Actually a pretty fast patch, considering I have seen SEGA take forever to  patch their other titles or not patch them at all. But it won’t stop here, SEGA says they have ‘more plans’ for Chu Chu Rocket in the future. Exciting.

Kingdom Conquest released for iOS devices, it’s free!

A few months back we brought you some early info on SEGA’s new combination town strategy game and 3-D dungeon crawler Kingdom Conquest. Well today, that game is available to download for FREE via the iTunes app store and can be played on any iOS device. Learn more about the game here, and if you own an iOS device download it NOW! It’s free, it’s a new IP and thus far from what I’ve played it’s pretty cool!

Chu Chu Rocket gets release date & more information

If you have one of them hipster Apple devices, like the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, you will be able to purchase Chu Chu Rocket on October 28th. Not that long of a wait!

SEGA has stated that this is a ‘brand new’ game, designed for the iPad and iPhone in mind. The game will not be a universal app, for those owners of more than one of the devices. The iPad version also has some exclusive features, like 4 player same-screen multiplayer. Make sure they all wash their hands.

Some negative news: Apparently local mutliplayer causes lag, almost a full second worth of lag. Lets hope that SEGA showed off an old build and this is not the cause in the full release.

Chu Chu Rocket hitting the iPhone in late October

Forgive me for not thinking of a cat and mouse pun for the headline. Via SEGA’s e-newsletter comes an official word on when we can expect the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch to get Chu Chu fever: late October! Considering the iDevice’s are getting Sonic 4 next week, October will be a big month for SEGA on the App Store. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but $7.99 to $9.99 seem to be the magic numbers for other new App Store releases from SEGA.

Kingdom Conquest early reviews, screens and info

A few beta testers for Kingdom Conquest have already submitted their ratings and they have been pretty positive. The game has two parts to it, one being a up town strategy game and the other being a 3-D dungeon crawler. When you go dungeon crawling  with friends you will be able to find items to equip your army with and help you win more land.

“at first i thought this game will be like any other game, but i was wrong… the developer team is genius to ever create a game like this !” – dimaz91

I agree with dimaz91, when I heard about the game I thought it was going to be crap. But it seems that SEGA has got this down. Glad, more quality software for everyone. The game carries a 9+ rating for Fantasy Violence and Infrequent/Mild Realistic Violence.
