‘Titan Quest’ is Heading to Mobile

An action role-playing game set in Ancient Greece and Egypt, Titan Quest is PC game that received pretty decent reviews when it launched in 2006. Now it’s heading to iOS, thanks to developer DotEmu. Says Pocket Gamer:

Titan Quest charges players with taking the role of a hero to fight monsters in classical settings like Ancient Greece and Egypt.

The mobile version retains the same 3D graphics of its PC cousin, with players moving the hero around using a virtual stick and virtual buttons.

iOS 9 Could Make Apps Take Up Less Space

One new feature mentioned in Apple’s WWDC keynote on Monday was something called “app thinning.” According to Touch Arcade:

If you have a 16 GB iPhone or iPad, you quickly come to regret it, as app sizes have gotten bigger and bigger over time. This is thinks in large part to apps needing Retina-sized assets, and apps that require separate 32-bit and 64-bit code. The new asset sizes start to add up. But a new iOS 9 feature, app thinning, could help out a lot with that, as argued by Ars Technica. Now an app can download just the set of code it needs, just the size of images it needs, and just the GPU code, whether it be OpenGL or Metal, that is required.

‘Hitman: Sniper’ Review – Right On Target

Gamezebo has rung in on the quality of Hitman: Sniper. Turns out they love it. From their five-star review:

Advancement comes via a truly startling number of weapons to unlock in a variety of ways: simple leveling, leaderboard placement and blueprints that need to be completed via drops from assassinated villains. In-game currency is used to power the guns up with both passive and active abilities, all of which come in helpful. The only mechanic I wasn’t truly sold on was the simple score multiplier that comes with using maxed out weapons, simply because it seemed to make some of the contracts based on score a little too easy.

‘Dead Among Us’ Review: A Decent Shooter

In Dead Among Us, you play as a survivor of the zombie apocalypse who uses a bow and arrow to take down the undead. From Pocket Gamer’s 6 out of 10 review:

It all works reasonably well, and while it never gets frantic, the zombie versus shaft action is usually sharp enough that you’ll jump back in for another bite.

There’s the usual free to play gubbins as you’d expect, but if you’re not sick of re-mudering the undead, then Dead Among Us has enough going for it to keep you entertained.
