It's Friday, which means the weekend – and thus, downtime (for many people, anyway) – is only a few hours away. What better way to kick off the next couple of non-work days than with some great games for a fraction of the price? I submit that such a thing does not exist.
We've stumbled across several good deals this morning, including a couple of really fantastic titles for merely a buck.
Gameloft has carved out a nice little niche for itself by taking popular console games, and tweaking the formula (and title) just enough to get away with it. The Modern Combat series has been presented as the mobile equivalent of Modern Warfare, and it's just reached its 4th incarnation with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. Does this formula of console-style play still work on Android?
Gameplay And Story
Modern Combat 4 is a first person shooter that makes heavy use of cinematic elements to tell what we can only hope is a good story.
Back at the end of September, Gameloft released a teaser for its upcoming title Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. Needless to say, we were pretty blown away by the graphical content and fluid gameplay. Now, the company has released another teaser, this time showing us more detailed gameplay, and some behind-the-scenes insight into the title's creation.
They also give away parts of the storyline for the upcoming title, including the fact that both protagonist and antagonist will be playable characters.
It's pretty crazy to look at where we are with mobile games right now. Just a few short years ago, the most graphically impressive games we could get on our handsets were really anything but impressive. Now, we have games like Shadowgun, Dead Trigger, and Horn that take mobile gaming to a level that was good enough for the PC not all that long ago.
Gameloft has just released the trailer for Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, which looks like it will raise the bar for mobile graphics even higher.
