I love my job as Assistant Editor here at Gamezebo, but that doesn’t mean I’ve never wondered what my life might have been like had I chosen a different profession, such as an attorney or a bellboy. Well it looks like the new iOS games that are hitting the App Store tonight might just give us an idea of what these kinds of career paths would really entail, if we ever wanted to switch things up one day.
So whether you dream of being the legal star of the courtroom, a young bellboy in a fast-paced and frantic hotel, or just a simple hardworking Timbergrote who does everything for his family, I think we can all learn a thing or two tonight from seeing life on the other side of the occupational fence. Or if anything, at least now I’ll be much more inclined to give the bellboy a generous tip the next time I stay in a hotel, after experiencing what some of them can go through in their day-to-day shifts!
Warhammer Quest – Clear off your virtual game tables, questing fans, because Rodeo Games’ quintessential mix of addictive role-playing and strategy elements is finally here! Not only is Warhammer Quest the first Warhammer game to debut on the iOS platform, but it’s seriously one of the most graphically-rich tabletop-based games I’ve probably ever seen. And considering how we first previewed this game last summer, I can already tell that those many months of development have been put to good use, in crafting a truly engrossing and believable world full of Orcs, Goblins, and Trolls, and all the other usual suspects that you’d find hanging around your local cave or dungeon.
Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy – I always knew that court battles have the potential to drag on for months and even years at a time, but it seems like we’ve been waiting for the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy to emerge from the iOS judge’s chambers for way longer than I can even remember by now. All in all, this impressive collection will let you play three full Ace Attorney games based on the popular Nintendo DS titles, including Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice For All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations. If you somehow missed out on this fantastic franchise the first time around, then I can’t imagine a better place to start getting up to speed.
Incredible Jack – Incredible Jack marks a nostalgic return to classic console platforming gameplay, and the unique 3D visuals make it look like all of those bubbly 2D sidescrolling platformers I used to play back in the day on my PlayStation 1: but with tons of more polish, of course. In the game, you play as Jack, a chubby yellow critter of the Timbergrote species, who must set out on a platforming adventure across a magical world to rescue his family and loved ones. Incredible Jack features 37 family-fun levels spread across 7 distinct worlds, where light environmental puzzles and platforming mechanics like springs are always abound.
Bellboy – Nobody ever said the life of a bellboy was easy, and nobody certainly ever said that a mobile game about this lowly hotel employee’s daily responsibilities would be a complete blast to play! In the game, you play as a young bellboy named Jack, whose frantic work day involves speedily bringing luggage to the hotel guests, collecting their room keys, and even taking care of their uncooperative pets (not to mention the angry rabid dogs that have somehow found their way into the hotel). At least this action puzzler is fully brought to life in a beautiful and colorful art style, so I guess Jack’s life as a bellboy isn’t all bad!
