Gamers who whiled away hours on classic Amiga titles are in for a treat as one of the best-loved sci-fi action games from the era is set for a re-launch on Apple® and Android® mobile phones and tablets this month.
Rocket Ranger was first released by Cinemaware® on the Commodore® Amiga in 1988. It became one of the most beloved and iconic Cinemaware games of all time and was released on several other platforms, including the Japanese FM-Towns computer and Nintendo’s NES.
Taking its inspiration from 1950s TV sci-fi serials, the game sets the player in a world where the Nazis won World War II. Using rocket pack technology sent from the future, the player must travel the world and rid it of the escalating threat, combining strategic planning, infiltration by spies and lots of action scenes.
Through dogfights, shootouts, fist fights, a nefarious plot involving a kidnapped scientist’s daughter and dialogue with various characters, the player must pursue the goal of building a rocket ship to reach the moon in order to rid the world of the Nazis once and for all – with a twist in the story at the end!
Rocket Ranger is expected to land in app stores in early November. Stay tuned and watch our announcement Trailer:
One of Cinemaware’s most popular titles, “The King of Chicago – Emulated Amiga™ Version” puts you in the war for Al Capone’s throne when it comes to iOS devices in the upcoming weeks. Set in the 1930s, “The King of Chicago” is the original gangster myth game. You’ll be performing drive-by shootings with your Tommy gun, bribing corrupt officials, and carving your way to the top of Chicago’s Mob in order to be included in the formation of a New York crime syndicate. As if that weren’t enough, the player also has to stay one step ahead of the law and keep his girlfriend satisfied by catering to her crazy whims and desires – or risk losing her! Designed and developed by Doug Sharp (who created Dramaton, an interactive narrative system), The King of Chicago represented a milestone in interactive storytelling.
“Lissen up, when youse action and story combine just poifect, somethin’ snazzy happens on the screen,” said Pinky Callahan, mouthpiece for Cinemaware. “Cinemaware pulled the trigger on that stuff back in the 1980s; and it ain’t no different now. People are always yappin’ at us to bring back our games, as we obliged last year with Defender of the Crown – Emulated Amiga Version on iOS. We’s in the process of releasin’ several classic and new titles in 2012, startin’ with the godfather of games, The King of Chicago – Emulated Amiga Version on iOS. And just a tip between us wiseguys…we changed up “our thing” totally at www.cinemaware.com. It’s a hit, if youse catch my drift.”
A bold new Cinemaware.com will set the stage for the developer’s triumphant return. Fans can gather there to relive memories of the company’s Amiga Generation heyday in the new Timeline feature, and interact with fellow Cinemaware fans to discuss the creation of exciting new games in the site’s Community area. The Games and Memorabilia sections offer enough retro gaming material to fill a “Ready Player One” sequel, including original box covers, videos, screenshots and all sorts of cool trivia and memorabilia info. A Cinemaware Radio is planned that will allow fans to listen to their favorite Cinemaware game tracks, as well as a Featurette Theater where they will be able to play free mini-games online. In addition, look forward to a new merchandising line at the CinemaWEAR store when it launches, so the world will know you defend your gaming crown with pride.
