Planet Pinball review (XBLIG)

Planet Pinball was developed and published by Battenberg Software and was released on December 23, 2009 for 80MSP. A copy was provided by the developer for review purposes.

Planet Pinball is a simple concept: a few balls, a couple paddles and an outer space theme. It provides pinball fans with many things to shoot for such as orbits, meteors, rocket blasting and airlocks. At first glance it seems well rounded, low priced pinball game. But can it stand up to the bang-for-your-buck value of Pinball FX 2?

Dark Energy Digital launch "Hydrophobia Listening Post"

By  •  News

Hydrophobia had a shaky launch, it was riddled with bugs and clunky game mechanics. Developers of the game, Dark Energy Digital listened to critics and fans complaints however. This led to the launch of Hydrophobia Pure a significant (and free) update to the game which vastly improved the game in almost every way.

Due to the overwhelming acceptance of the newly remodeled game Dark Energy Digital wanted to make public and developer interaction much easier. And so they have launched Hydrophobia Listening Post. What is it you ask? The 'listening post' is a way for you to rate every aspect of Hydrophobia Pure, give your own suggestions and comments as well as request new aspects to be available for rating. The results of these ratings will directly impact the development of future games in the Hydrophobia series.

Hopefully this will become a new trend among more developers both small and big as it would change the way games are updated drastically in the future. You can read the full press release about the listening post, including a quote from Dark Energy Digital's Creative Director Pete Jones, after the jump. Read More
