[New Game] John Woo's Bloodstroke, A John Woo Game By John Woo, Is A Top-Down Shooter Set In A Sumi-e Painting

Hey, did you know that John Woo made an Android game? You will by the time you read the Play Store description for Chillingo's latest title, Bloodstroke.

Did he code the entire thing by hand on the set of Windtalkers? We don't know, and it doesn't matter.

[New Game] Total Recoil Rewards Players For Shooting Both Everything That Moves And Whatever's Left

There are just two rules in Total Recoil: shoot everything that moves - and shoot everything that doesn't. This top-down shooter is all about blowing stuff up and making money. Get your fingers back on those virtual joysticks, soldiers, because there's shooting to be done.

Total-Banner

Total Recoil looks to be a soothingly mindless action game that doesn't purport to be about anything more than shooting as many things with as many bullets from as many guns as possible. Your soldier will wield upgradable assault rifles, chain guns, cannons, missile launchers, flamethrowers, and whatever else it takes to mow down unrelenting enemy combatants.
