As is becoming common these days, I’ve completely neglected this blog as real life gets in the way and countless Lovedelic happenings come and go. Here’s everything you should be aware of, that I can remember.
The big news of course, is that Route24 has released Newtonica2 on iPhone for the bargain price of just 59 pence. I picked this up a while ago and I’m really liking it. The game is completely different to the first one and is well worth picking up in addition. I’d kind of liken it to ‘space pool’, in that you have to knock a ball (space chick) into a hole, by bouncing him around the screen with gravity emitting cue balls. All in all it’s a really good puzzle game with a fiendish difficulty curve.
LOVEDELIC MEDIA WATCH
If you enjoy reading about Lovedelic and its offspring in places other than this blog (I wouldn’t blame you) then check out the following. GamesTM magazine has recently run a couple of substantial features. One in issue 76 took a look at the characters of Captain Rainbow and compared them to their retro counterparts, while another in issue 77 interviewed good old Kenichi Nishi about the making of LOL: Lack Of Love. In other news, Patrick Alexander, at the delightful EEGRA, has finally transcribed the second part of his Nishi/Skip interview and it is ESSENTIAL that you give it a read. As usual, Patrick asks some smart questions and gets some equally smart answers.
MORE ART STYLE GAMES
As I may or may not have reported before, Skip’s Art Style series is set to hit DSiWare in Japan just before Christmas, and details of the first two games in the series have just been announced. One is called Aquario and the other is called Decode. Follow the links to scope them both out. Then pray for a worldwide release in 2009.
That’s all for now. Go away, have a great Christmas break and we’ll hopefully share some more Lovedelic moments in the new year.
