Spiritual successor to Shaq Fu out now for iOS, Android

Shaquille O'Neal has returned to gaming thanks to Hiptic Games, the developer of ShaqDown. An appropriately ridiculous-looking Android and iOS title available as of today, this $0.99 game isn't going to win any awards for originality with its sidescrolling design.

That said, the art by Long Vo, who previously worked on Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, is pretty darn great. Shaq has to take down zombies who have somehow mutated and turned into -- what else? -- "mutant zombies." Unlike Shaq Fu, however, this is only a buck, so there's a limit to how much post-purchase guilt one can feel. Who's going to be the first to bite here?

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
