The Guardian reports on two ambitious games coming from Gameloft before the end of the year.
The first title called Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heros is a described as a 3D third-person perspective WWI actioner featuring jeep and tank driving and onfoot shooting. The Guardian reports that the game uses a virtual D-pad for movement.
The second title is called Hero of Sparta and is a God of War style 3rd parson “hack-n-slasher”.
Again it features an onscreen D-Pad as well as contextual options like hit, defend, change weapons, etc. During combat, stringing together a range of moves results in an icon appearing onscreen – if this is repeatedly tapped quickly enough, you get a special finishing move.
