Star Legends, the sci-fi themed follow-up – and working to expand its universe even further. Dark Legends is an Android and Google Chrome exclusive for now but will soon be available to iOS gamers too.
Like the titles that came before it, Dark Legends (which carries a supernatural theme in which players take on the roles of vampire characters as they fight the humans and other monsters threatening their society) will allow players to interact across mobile platforms. It’ll also let players who use Google’s Chrome web browser play along with those on mobile devices, as well. Both Spacetime’s previous games eventually gained that capability, offering free browser-based versions of the titles, but Dark Legends has already launched with multiple versions, potentially opening up the community even wider than before.
This is also Spacetime’s most adult game so far. Pocket Legends and Star Legends both had 3-D graphics, but they opted for a more cartoonish style and the subject matter was always kept relatively light in those games. Meanwhile, Dark Legends is quite a bit bloodier. While its 3-D graphics aren’t exactly pushing the envelope in terms of technical power, mostly to keep the game easy to run on lots of different devices, they’re still the most realistic the company has put forward yet. Spacetime’s latest offering takes its place as our top game of the week.
Cross-platform gaming has some real potential in the mobile sphere, and there are several titles that are already taking advantage of linking tablets and consoles, but beyond linking Android and iOS, it has yet to really catch on. Seeing Spacetime bring its game to lots of different platforms is something that would be great for more developers to emulate.
