Lawless (By DeNA)

Quote:
Mobile giant DeNA has announced a new shooter for iOS devices that is being co-developed by UK start-up EightPixelsSquare.

Lawless aims to bring "photorealistic arcade-style shooter" antics to iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. it is set in '90s Los Angeles and challenges players to climb the ranks of criminal organisations - mostly through cover-based gun battles.

EightPixelsSquare was set up by key members of Eurocom after the long-running British studio closed last year. The team behind Lawless also worked on acclaimed shooter Dead Space: Extraction.

Looks like it has potential -- and it looks like Kane & Lynch. Count me in.

Meh... The end of the preview video... "if you do x get free gun" bullcrap.

That is screaming freemium, and the mind behind this is the one that made The Drowning, so im not keeping my hopes up, but i will keep an eye on this.

Just saw this previewed on AppSpy. Of course the Freemium is going to kill it, but I'd be lying if I said this doesn't look like a lot of fun. Will be downloading in hopes that there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

"Set in 1990s Los Angeles, Lawless delivers fast paced cover-to-cover gun battles where the player is cast as a high-end professional criminal, climbing the ranks of the underworld. Each mission in Lawless takes the player through levels modeled after real world locations as they aim, shoot and choose their path through dangerous missions such as bank robberies, assassination assignments and gang shootouts using simple touch and gesture controls."

Probably
