First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Ravensword: It's like Elder Scrolls for the iPhone
- — 18 November, 2009 10:59
Powered by the same impressive Unity 3D engine that has made a number of other well-executed 3D titles possible on the iPhone, as well as Cartoon Network's impressive FusionFall browser-based RPG, Ravensword: The Fallen King is the closest thing to an Elder Scrolls style game on Apple's platform yet. After a number of issues that arose during the Apple approval process concerning some of the development tools used for the game and their potential for harvesting players' phone numbers, the game has now been approved and is available for US$6.99. Described by publisher Chillingo as "a massive, sandbox-style adventure" the game combines exploration and combat in a similar fashion to many console fantasy RPGs. The game can be played as either a first or third person adventure, and even boasts "3D audio."
