O, that false fire which in his cheek so glowed,"There's no brook in the garden."
Than the true gouty landlord which doth owe them.
My spirits t'attend this double voice accorded,<p>If adventure games are your preferred prescription then Catopia Rush, which combines the best of popular aRPGs with stylish, cute visuals, might be exactly what you've been waiting for.</p><p>Over the last week, we've been playing through the cutesy adventure-rpg Catopia, well ahead of its planned soft-launch (16th September) and late-October release date. It's been an absolute delight, not least due to its hero-collecting antics, but also in its interesting twist on the normal aRPG style. In Catopia Rush you don't attack unless you first move, but from that point, it's a free-for-all, with your allies rushing into battle - complementing or conflicting with each other depending on how you assume your team.</p><p>In this way, it's almost an inverted twin-stick shooter. In those games, your aim is to rarely stop moving, to dance between enemies - and their projectiles - through a constant stream of inputs. Catopia Rush operates instead on the moments between movements, with your team attacking while you are mid, or freshly-finishing movements. It also feels quite close to minion-command games like Pikmin or Undead Horde where you influence your unit's moves indirectly. It's much more about creating complimentary fusions, levelling them up with in-game currency and tweaking your team as you come up against tougher-and-tougher odds.</p>
Till thus he 'gan besiege me: "Gentle maid,<p>It's well-known that Apple's approval system for its App Store is inconsistent. It can also be daft.</p><p>But the reason as to why Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager was rejected by Apple is outright absurd.</p><p>According to Pocket Tactics's Owen Faraday, who visited the Slitherine studios recently, Apple rejected Space Program Manager as it "contains well-known third parties."</p><p>To clarify: the game was rejected due to it featuring astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who helped in the making of the game. Yes, he is actively involved in its making.</p>Play nice<p>We know that Apple is touchy when it comes to real people, companies, and countries being depicted in games. The reason for this is revealed in its App Store guideline 14.1.</p><p>It reads: "Any App that is defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited, or likely to place the targeted individual or group in harm's way will be rejected."</p><p>That's quite sensible thinking even if it restricts some creativity, and Apple recently used it to reject a game that satirized North Korea's Kim Jong-Un (before accepting it a little later on).</p><p>But this ruling shouldn't apply to Space Program Manager.</p><p>As said, Buzz Aldrin is officially part of the game's development and has put his name to it. He's not a third party to the game. He's at its centre, so the reason that Apple gave doesn't add up at all.</p><p>Buzz killSlitherine's Iain McNeil told Pocket Tactics that the studio "thought [it was] pretty safe this time," as Space Program Manager one of the few Slitherine games that doesn't feature violence.</p><p>McNeil's trepidation around Apple's reaction to violent games is well-founded.</p><p>Only a couple of weeks ago the company decided that it suddenly didn't want any images of guns being used in a threatening manner on the App Store.</p><p>As we found out last week, this has been a big inconvenience for studios making shooters especially.</p><p>And now we have this news of Apple rejecting Space Program Manager for this nonsensical reason. Sigh.</p><p>Hopefully, Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager will be out on iOS and Android soon.</p>Pocket Tactics
A MAN committed a murder, and was pursued by the relations of the man whom he murdered. On his reaching the river Nile he saw a Lion on its bank and being fearfully afraid, climbed up a tree. He found a serpent in the upper branches of the tree, and again being greatly alarmed, he threw himself into the river, where a crocodile caught him and ate him. Thus the earth, the air, and the water alike refused shelter to a murderer.
