It’s Kind Of Like What Diablo Would Be With PlayStation Move

dunghGame clone specialists Gameloft have a dungeon crawler coming to PlayStation Network called Dungeon Hunter: Alliance.

 

I got to play a bit of it at Game Developer’s Conference. You point the PlayStation Move where you want to go and hold the trigger to make your character (mine was a warrior) move. Shake the controller to attack oncoming skeletons and if you point the wand down the warrior summons lightning around him to push off mobs. When you want to pick up weapons you mouseover to the item and shake.

 

It’s basically Diablo-lite with motion control instead of a mouse. Gameloft added standard controls too, but the most interesting thing about Dungeon Hunter: Alliance was how the developer turned a point-and-click into a PlayStation Move game.

 

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance will be released as a PlayStation Network download in April.

    Sounds cool. Gameloft is like the master of decent quality knock off games.
    More developers should be making use of the Move don’t understand why they dont take advantage

      Maybe the same reason why developers don’t take advantage of the wiimote/+.

      Having a hand in developing a PS-Move related project as a school assignment, I should mention that PS-Move is quite a hassle to work with (setting up, processor costs) and a gamepad offers easier controls (not the intuitive-type like motion controllers though) over the typical motion-based controls.

      Well, that’s coming from a student, not a professional developer there is working out there D:.

    In a game like this, using any type of motion controllers seems to fiddily. It’s going to take more then using motion controllers to get me interested in a diablo-esque game as well.
