Early Impressions: Quantum Revenge – Bake Until Gold Brown

img_0858

Quantum Revenge is not Realtech VR’s first rodeo, but it’s definitely the studio’s most ambitious. We had a look not long ago at Kosmik Revenge, and it’s unfortunate it shares such a similar name with this latest offering, as it may confuse some potential buyers thinking Quantum is a sequel. Kosmik is a very simple vertical shooter along the lines of Space Invaders, whereas Quantum is a twin-stick shooter with mechs. Chalk and cheese.

Firstly, Quantum Revenge has some known technical issues that the developers are aware of, and are working busily behind the scenes on updates with bug fixes. With that in mind, ATVG will hold off on a full review until the major bugs are squashed, but we wanted to get some impressions out there, as despite some issues, this is already an excellent arcade shooter, and definitely worth your time.

All Players Will Get 25,000 CR in Quantum Revenge Update


Realtech VR this morning announced that Quantum Revenge is sitting in the #17 spot in France’s App Store, so the newly released shooter seems to be doing okay. 

Unfortunately, it did release with some bugs which the studio will be looking to fix in an update that is currently pending approval by Apple. The update will take the game to version 1.0.2, and will not only squash bugs, but will also give all players 25,000 CR. The in-game currency can be used for upgrades, and it’s a nice way for Realtech VR to thank early adopters hampered by bugs. 

ATVG is looking forward to suiting up this weekend and jointing the fight. 

Until then, happy gaming!

How to Find Space Marshals 2’s Most Hidden Token

Hidden throughout the missions in Space Marshals 2 are collectible COR-V tokens. Collecting them is essential to earning the game’s best weapons, but many of them are not easy to find. Wouldn’t be much of a challenge if they were.

One of them however, has caused so much feedback that studio Pixelbite has made the decision to reveal its hidden location. For the original walkthrough you can head on over to the developer’s site right here, or alternatively, click on through to page 2 for the reveal.

If you haven’t already, check out our review of Space Marshals 2 right here. Spoiler alert – it’s really, really good.

MouseBot: Escape From CatLab is Out Now on Apple TV 

I love seeing studios buck the trend established years ago for when to release iOS games, and as a consequence, tvOS games. 

Every Thursday a fresh flock of lambs (or lemmings) lines up to take the plunge off the metaphorical App Store cliff. Each one hopes to be caught by success, and given wings to save it from being lost in the crowd, and drowning in obscurity down below. 

Thankfully, there are six other days in the week. Quantum Revenge for example, released last Sunday. Sunday. And here is MouseBot: Escape From CatLab, fresh-faced and bright-eyed, born on Tuesday the 4th of April. Normally I associate Tuesdays with cheap pizza and half-priced movie tickets, so adding a newly released game to those associations makes for a full day of entertainment.

ATVG will be firing up MouseBot and posting some impressions in the coming days, but in the meantime, it’s free-to-play so the only obstacles are time and megabytes. 

If you end up digging MouseBot to the extent that you’d like to wear your heart on your sleeve, Vector Unit even have t-shirts ready to go, check them out right here.

Here’s the trailer once again, and we will be back in the not too distant future with some more words. 

All your Quantum Revenge Questions Answered in Handy FAQ


Quantum Revenge hit our Apple TVs last night, and developer Realtech VR has posted a comprehensive FAQ guide for all your technical questions: how to restore your purchases, hardware enquirers, what the in-app-purchases do, and so on. 

You can jump over to the FAQ guide right here.

Unfortuneately ATVG won’t be able to sample the goods until later in the week, so you’re on your own until then. We will post some impressions this weekend and follow up with a full review ASAP.

Until then, play nice. 

Quick Look: Time Monkeys – from the Designer of Micro Machines

TM_AppBanner_1280

During our recent look at Kosmik Revenge, we suggested typing “shooter” into the search field of your Apple TV. The result is a couple of pages of various styles of shooters – some good, some not so good. It was this experiment that brought us to Time Monkeys. The screenshots showed what might be an okay twin-stick shooter, but it was the description and the studio that really piqued our interest.

Time Monkeys is from a team called Kwalee, which boasts founders and staff that hail from racing giant Codemasters. More specifically, Time Monkeys is attributed to none other than Andrew Graham, designer of a little NES classic you may have heard of – Micro Machines.
