Poi: a platformer that you should all look out for

We can certainly guess the fate of a game by the way that it makes its entry onto download stores! These days, thousands of new titles are being released and it’s indeed not easy for players to pick the best in terms of entertainment, purposefulness and gameplay. However, nowadays, there seems to be a pretty clear incline towards platformers among mobile users.

The trend might not be similar among video gamers in general, but if there is an app that’s being talked about these days, it will have to be Poi! The latter is a platform-running adventure; it can presently be downloaded for Windows, Mac OS X, Steam OS and Linux. Do note that developer PolyKid also plans to deliver a mobile port for iOS smartphones and tablets.

This 3D adventure is certainly out there to challenge the Mario franchise, but it’s also true that it will not really succeed until it finally takes over major download stores. For now though, things are going pretty smoothly for this new release! A spokesperson at PC Gamer made the following statement during a recent interview: “I can’t deny the allure of Poi’s colourful, skyborn universe.”

To boot, folks at Destructoid believe that “Poi looks like all the best 3D Mario games combined into one”! Some impressive statements made indeed, and as a mobile fanatic, I suppose that it will be totally worth waiting for this project to land on platforms that interest us the most. For the time being, do check the trailer out and stay tuned for more details coming from PolyKid!

Die by Died: an action platformer with RPG elements

From simple observations, we can now conclude that the platformer genre is facing some sort of evolution! Games are not always all about running in a straight line to collect coins. Things are getting mixed and players are presently being served with better and more captivating titles. One that we can certainly refer to these days is a forthcoming app by Wei Shi.

The latter is called Die by Died and even if the title does not make sense, it’s still looking like an app that will certainly catch the eyes of mobile gamers. The feature that will help this game demarcate itself from the rest is its gameplay. RPG elements have been included and these will hopefully cater for the needs of players who would otherwise have nothing to do with a running man!

When it comes to the in-game action, you folks can expect pretty sleek-looking graphics. A gun-wielding character will have to be controlled, and as one progresses it will eventually be possible to unlock more weapons and various other perks. Smooth controls will also add to the charm of this forthcoming piece of entertainment.

According to information that we presently have, the launch is slated for the 22nd of February.
