Gamevil’s new release Hybrid: Eternal Whisper is out now!

Hybrid: Eternal Whisper

Fans of the popular iPhone RPG Zenonia will be happy find find Hybrid is now available on the app store. Hybrid is quite a bit different then Zenonia, but is still a title for the more hardcore gamer. The gameplay is more similar to Ninja Gaiden or Devil May Cry then Zelda.

   We are preparing a review for Hybrid now, and will have it up for you as soon as possible. The game has a TON of content so it is taking some time to get through before we can staart writing up the final review. One interesting little tidbit I’ll share is that this time Gamevil has implemented online leaderboards for thier game.  Hybrid is available for $5.99

The Current Gamer Breaking News: Mediatonics new iPhone game get the info here first!

MediaTonic the developers of the iphone cult classic MustEatBirds has been hinting at a new iPhone game for some time now. They plan to announce the game next week. We took a close look at thier clues, and did some digging on thier website and think we know exactly what they will be announcing….

Clues:

This screenshot was released as one of the clues to Mediatonics next game. Here is another clue they released:

This one has the MediaTonic Logo on top of what looks like a yellow ball of some sort, next to smaller white ball. hmmm…. Here is a pic from a wiki article about lawn bowling:

Look familiar?

After doing some digging on the MediaTonic websites we came across this little pic:

The pic is named Extreme Lawn Bowls…. It also just so happens that domain extremelawnbowling.com was bought on August 15th by none other than MediaTonic!

What is lawn bowling? Wiki: “Bowls is a sport in which the goal is to roll slightly asymmetric balls, called bowls, closest to a smaller—normally white—bowl called the “jack” or “kitty”. Bowls, either flat- or crown-green, is usually played outdoors, on grass and synthetic surfaces. Flat-green bowls can also be played indoors on synthetic surfaces. Both variants are collectively known as “lawn bowls”.”

So our prediction is that next week Mediatonic will be announcing Extreme Lawn Bowling for the iPhone. We will have additional details as they are available.

On The Radar: Plushed

One game to look out for in the near future is developer Blacksmith Games first planned iPhone release, Plushed. Plushed appears to be a 2D platformer with a unique hand drawn art style. Blacksmith Games has just released the first video for the game:

Based on the video, the unique hand drawn art style is consistent with screenshots that have been released earlier. The animations appear to be very smooth, and look great. For those not familiar, Plushed is a new take on the classic “save the princess” formula. Instead of a prince, the hero of the story is the Princess’ plush bunny.

The game is being built from the ground up for the iPhone, and the developer promises several unique gameplay elements that will take advantage of the iPhones touch screen and built in accelerometer. The developers are aiming for a September/October 09′ release currently, and we at The Current Gamer are certainly looking forward to seeing the finished product.
