Dead Rising (Coming this Holiday) (Screens)

another disappointment for us Ancient users but a great news for iGaming!


One of the more interesting aspects to Dead Rising Mobile is the social network integration using Facebook and Twitter. If Frank is killed in the game, you can send a rescue call out over either service to show up in your friends' feeds. One of them can in turn respond to that call by entering a special code into their own version of the game, thus rescuing you and allowing you to continue on from the same point in the game. If your friend is unable to rescue you in time, or just plain chooses not to, then your character will turn into a zombie which they can seek out and kill in their own game. This is definitely a unique idea, and should reveal who your real gaming friends are, although it remains how well it will work in practice. Having my game progress hinge on a buddy's motivation (or lack thereof) to fire up his copy of the game and pull a rescue maneuver makes me nervous to say the least.

Dead Rising on iPhone presents a very similar experience to what you know and love about the first game. You still play as Frank (though Capcom hinted that it might release another playable character if the game is well-received) and you're stuck in a Williamette Mall that has been overrun by zombies. It's up to you to use any means available to kill them… again. While your surroundings and main character are the same, Capcom made it very clear that this version has been built from the ground up specifically for iPhone and iPod touch. So while the shopping mall setting is familiar, Capcom says that the events and story will be unique to the portable device.

Let's go over what didn't make the cut: Boss fights, escorting survivors, combining weapons, taking photos, driving vehicles, and dressing up in goofy costumes are all out (though costumes could be added in a later update). What's left is a miniature shopping mall with benches, trash cans, and other everyday items that you, as photojournalist Frank West, can use to take out the shambling undead. You can also fight with your fists, plus the occasional firearms.

LOL, Nice Ipadboy. Determination seems to have worked out for you.

But is that for iPhone or some other mobile device?
