      Snark aside, he did remind me of Ike lol.

    Not bad. Seems like he’s picked up a few moves by reading Green Lantern…

    Maybe this company will become a rival to Kemco, like Enix and Square were once. Then the smartphone gaming will become more and more hardcore.

    Also, goddammit, iOS has some actually good graphics, but I still can’t move with touch screens. Too awkward…

    I like the stuff that I have seen in this video. I would totally buy that game if wasn’t for me still using a w200 in 2013
    edit: this video gave me a urge ti play malicious

    Kinda curious about the length of the game with those style graphics and that price tag. I have access to an ipad and would think about trying this, but not if it is a 3 hour affair or has extreme, artificial length extenders.
