Keiji Inafune is a busy man. In the excitement of today's announcement of YAIBA, we failed to mention that his Comcept studio teamed up with Marvelous for another game that was actually just released.

J.J. Rockets is a side-scroller for mobile devices that places you in the role of the President of the United States (Metal Wolf Chaos, anyone?), who dons a superhero suit to exercise his "executive orders" with some good ol' fashioned pew pew pew. With an arsenal of 200 weapons, you tackle short missions that must be cleared in under three minutes, boss encounter and all.

It sounds more than a little Mega Man-ish with an art style reminiscent of Viewtiful Joe, and I am totally sold. It's currently available only in Japan on Android devices, for free if you are a member of the Mobage social gaming service. Eventually it'll come to iOS devices, after which I hope they consider global plans. Who wouldn't want to be an ass-kicking President?

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more

Particulars explores the subatomic world next month

I always appreciate seeing science represented in games, outside of the typical "heroes need to clean up the mess these mad scientists made" trope. Videogames can be so powerful as tools for learning, and that potential is s...more
