Alien Spidy And DLCs Crash Land At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Alien Spidy from Kalypso Media Digital as well as two DLC packs for the game: Between a Rock and a Hard Place and Easy Breezy are available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. The action platformer challenges players to help the alien hero Spidy as he struggles to repair his damaged ship and rescue his lost friend Virgi.

Alien Spidy:

After losing contact with his explorer friend Virgi, our fearless alien hero Spidy heads to Earth in his spacecraft to find her. While entering the Earth’s atmosphere, his spacecraft suddenly fails and starts to break up, causing Spidy to crash-land on the strange planet, with his craft scattered across forests, throughout ponds and in dark caves. Spidy finds himself alone on an alien world and faces the epic challenge of tracking down Virgi, battling strange new enemies and finding the missing pieces from his spacecraft in order to repair the damage and make their escape home.

The stage is set for the adventure of a lifetime as Spidy embarks on a perilous journey through a visually stunning 2D/3D world, where quick reflexes and fast-paced platform action create a fun and rewarding gameplay experience, which is easy to pick up, but challenging to master.

Features:

  • A unique blend of fast paced physics based platform action and challenging puzzles
  • A visually stunning, cartoon-styled animated world
  • Use the analogue control to perform intuitive skill-based manouvres as Spidy swings from danger, shoots his web and avoids numerous pitfalls and enemies
  • Explore three unique game environments with 69 diverse and challenging levels
  • Overcome a huge range of enemies and fight epic boss battles
  • Accessible for both casual and core gamers…it’s easy to pick up, but challenging to master
  • Unlock over 300 collectibles and achievements
  • Replay levels to earn higher scores and improve your leader board rankings
Between a Rock and a Hard Place:

Now unlock 3 more ridiculously difficult “Special” levels, which are set to test your ability and skill to the very extreme!

Once again you are set a challenge that has you travelling through the Forest, but this time there is no mercy! The smallest mistakes will send you right back to the start of this most brutal and unforgiving level. If you really think that you have what it takes to get Spidy from A to B then be our guest…

Determination is what you will need when you are dropped straight into an underwater cave! No wait, determination and a lot of speedy quick reflexes, because without these there is certainly no way you can beat this level. Challenge accepted?

Until now Spidy has never felt so helpless. You have to guide him out of the deepest and darkest depths of the caves; there is no sign of life anywhere! Don’t be miss lead, there is still plenty of danger this far into the earth’s crust, as you are in far less control due to wind tunnels, floating spores and unstable stalactites. You’ll be more than happy to reach the end, if you can?!

Included Levels:

  • Life is Hard - Forest
  • Water Burrow - Ponds
  • Last Special - Caves
Easy Breezy DLC:

Unlock 3 more challenging “Special” levels, one within each environment.

Go back to the forest and really learn how to spin your web and swing the way gravity intended! Take this with a pinch of salt, as the level is easy to complete but ridiculously challenging to unlock your stars. Do you think you can master this?

Venture through the ponds once more and find yourself avoiding alien fish, spikes and deadly under water plants. This challenge is dedicated to perfection. Will you be able to out manoeuvre the Alien Fish before your protective bubble runs out of energy? Did we mention that once this is done you still have to get all your stars as well?

Find yourself trapped in a cave! Don’t worry though… if the sharp red crystals, poisonous fungus or deadly mosquitos are avoided, you will be just fine! Escape this challenging cave with the help of a large number of power-ups, but no help from re-spawn checkpoints. Can you escape?

  • Go Down - Forest

Endless Legend Launched
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Amplitude Studios and Iceberg Interactive recently released Endless Legend. The new 4X fantasy strategy title gives players the chance to take control of one of eight civilizations as they explore, conquer, and research their way to supremacy.

Create your own Legend

Another sunrise, another day of toil. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Urgency drives these simple efforts, however, for your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. A fact that has also been true for the previous five.

As you discover the lost secrets of your world and the mysteries of the legends and ruins that exist as much in reality as in rumor, you will come to see that you are not alone. Other peoples also struggle to survive, to grow, and perhaps even to conquer.

You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react? Will your trail be one of roses, or of blood?

Explore fantastic lands.

  • Lead one of eight civilizations each with a unique gameplay style and storyline.
  • Survive through cold dark seasons that drive Auriga to its end. Will it also be yours?
  • Experience an endless replayability with randomly generated worlds and quests.
  • Set the size, shape, topography and more... to create your own world to discover.
Expand beyond the unknown.
  • Conquer, build and develop villages into feared fortresses or wonderful cities.
  • Assimilate powerful minor factions and use their special traits and units wisely.
  • Hire, equip and train your heroes to become army leaders or city governors.
  • Raise your civilization by finding mysterious artefacts and forgotten technologies.
Exploit every opportunity.
  • Evolve your civilization through the discovery of new advanced technologies.
  • Collect Dust, luxuries and strategic resources tradable on the marketplace.
  • Keep one step ahead of other civilizations through trade and subtle diplomacy.
  • Choose from different victory conditions and adapt your strategy on the fly.
Exterminate fools who defy you.
  • Experience an innovative dynamic simultaneous turn-based battle system.
  • Use unit equipement, abilities and the terrain to overcome your opponents.
  • Zoom out of a battle and rule the other aspects of your empire seamlessly.
  • Define your custom civilizations and confront those created by your friends.
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.8 or later
  • 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 512 MB VRAM
