The recent reboot of the Transformers franchiseÂ left me with mixed feelings. On one hand I definitely enjoy the new look and feel of the robots themselves. On the other, while the first movie was at least half-decent, it pretty much went downhill thereafter. And what to expect from the licensed game accompanying the latest movie –TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON – was a mystery for me.
This weekâ€™s new releases include pseudo-sequels, electronic versions of non-existent board games, and familiar games with new names.Â Street Fighter IV Volt sounds more like a repackaged update than a true sequel, but it does sport the one thing that most users were clamoring for â€“ WiFi multiplayer fights.Â Cargo Runners is a game designed from the ground up for the iPad, yet itâ€™s meant to look like a digital reproduction of an old fashioned physically printed board game.Â From what I hear, it does a pretty good job at that.Â Many of you might have noticed the game Mooniacs and looked at it with a quizzical eye, thinking youâ€™d experienced dÃ©jÃ vu.Â Donâ€™t fret â€“ the game is actually a rebranding of the puzzle game Moonsters , this time under the publishing label of Namco.Â As long as it plays the game same, youâ€™ll still be in for a treat.
