Big Game Night: Bloodmasque, Iron Force, and More

It’s Wednesday or, as we like to call it, Big Game Night, the night when most of the week’s big iOS games hit the App Store. At 11 p.m. EST, you’ll be able to star in your own vampire RPG, climb into the driver’s seat of a tank, and more. Read on for our list of the biggest games launching tonight.

Bloodmasque

This unique RPG from Square Enix takes place in 19th century Paris. It’s centered around vampires, but the tone is more Anne Rice and less True Blood. One of the more interesting aspects of the game is that the first thing you do when starting the game is to take a photo of yourself. Your likeness is then plastered on your character. Read our hands-on preview for details.

Iron Force

Iron Force is an online multiplayer game about tanks. Tanks fighitng each other. These slow-moving hunks of metal may not be agile, but they’re powerful and heavily armored. Anyway, Iron Force is free-to-play, and it actually comes out a little earlier today than the rest of the titles. It’s also from Chillingo, so it’s probably worth a look.

Riptide GP 2

The original Riptide GP was a fun, if way too short, wave racer game. The sequel looks to improve on everything from the original. It has nine “hydro jets” to collect, 25 stunts to master, a career mode, and an online multiplayer mode. If nothing else, the graphics look pretty great.

Sky Tourist

To truly get a sense of what Sky Tourist is about, it helps to watch the trailer above. You play as Petey, an astronaut who travels to distant worlds to photograph the aliens and collect cubelets. But instead of landing anywhere, he strings himself between two rockets, which you have to control to slide him left and right. It’s goofy, but it looks like a lot of fun.

Delta-V Racing

In this side-scrolling racer, you control a ship that has to navigate treacherous passages while battling against other racers. The game comes with seven different event types, eight power-ups, iCloud saves, and ghost races against your friends.

  1. Hey guys, just some feedback here.

    First, thanks for the writeup, very useful.

    Second, I just got an interstitial ad simply going to slidetoplay.com, and that should *never* happen. It’s off putting to new visitors, and current ones. No one wants to visit a site and see a giant ad eclipsing the site they want to visit. Interstitial ads should only happen when a user is moving from one part of your site to another, not their first visit.

    Possibly something out of your control, but I still wanted to mention it.

    • Hi Matt, thanks for the feedback. We are experimenting with some new kinds of ads, to help cover our costs. We’re still trying to find the right balance. If you enjoy the original content on this site, hopefully these new ads won’t be much of a deterrent.
