Game Centered features roundups and in-depth reviews of the best in iOS games and related gaming news. Among the App Store’s myriad games, it’s all too easy to overlook some of the greats. Each installment of Game Centered will take a close look at a select few worthy of special recognition. This week's Game Centered roundup features the new hit RPG Bloodmasque, the latest Prince of Persia installment, a sneak preview of Gameloft's Asphalt 8, this week's free App Store game, Le Vamp, and more!
1. Bloodmasque ($6.99) App Store Editor’s Choice
Brought to us by Square Enix, the same developers who just delivered another App Store Editor’s Choice, Deus Ex, Bloodmasque takes the traditional role playing game to a whole new level, allowing you to actually place your very own face on the main character. When you set up your profile, you are given the options of selecting images of your face calm, pleased, and angry, which it then uses as the story calls for them.
Gameplay is story driven and action packed, with hack’n’slash thrills and elaborately rendered environments to explore and behold. Unreal Engine provides the developer’s software behind this awesome game, and it surely won't disappoint any hardcore iOS gamer.
