A Clash Between Warring Extraterrestrial Races Goes Portable in Alien vs. Predator: Evolution
For those of you who are still reeling from the disappointment of Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines, here’s something to assuage your frustration for the time being: Angry Mob Games has just released Alien vs. Predator: Evolution for the iOS and Android platforms.
AvP: Evolution is a third-person action melee game, where gamers can play as either an Alien or a Predator. Unlike most previous AvP games, Evolution does not have a human campaign, although it looks like there will be plenty of humans around to slaughter anyway. Evolution is also the first AvP game to include the Super Predators, the leaner, meaner space hunting clan from the 2010 sequel Predators. I don't know the game's plot in detail, but it appears to borrow a few ideas from Dark Horse's Aliens vs. Predator: Three World War comic book miniseries.
The game footage looks impressive, but I’ve read from some who have already bought the game that it’s best to play it on higher-end portable devices; playing the game on lower-end devices results in many glitches that frequently interfere with the gaming experience. Go to the Angry Mob Games site for more information about AvP: Evolution, and watch the launch trailer below.
