Of Game Informer’s Top 300 Games Of All Time, 7 Are On Apple TV


Last week, the Australian iteration of print magazine Game Informer hit its 100th issue, and the team marked the occasion in style. With two different classic covers available to collect (Metroid above, and WoW over on page 2), the GI staff filled the bulk of the issue by undertaking the mammoth task of listing The Top 300 Games Of All Time.

Now, this sort of list is always going to create some heated debate, but isn’t that half the fun? Having this sort of firebrand sitting around on your coffee table makes for a great conversation starter.

Of the 300 titles in Game Informer’s list, there are 7 of them that you could be playing on your Apple TV right now, and we’ve listed them in descending order over on page 2, noting each game’s position within GI’s list.

So what are you waiting for?

Kidu Brings AR To Mobile, 2D Platforming To Apple TV

Kidu has actually been available for 12 months, but has only now been brought to our attention thanks to a feature in Apple’s relatively new Today tab. With iOS 11, the App Store received a complete makeover, with each new day bringing featured articles on apps and games, in a well-written magazine-style format.

The fact that this interesting title has only come to light a year after release is both a positive and negative reflection on Apple’s discoveribiltiy issues. While the Today tab is a change for the better for iPhone and iPad apps, it’s also serving to show how desperately the Apple TV App Store needs some sort of New Release list which is not editorially curated. The New Games We Love section on the Australian ATV App Store hasn’t been updated in months. Months.

That’s enough about that for now though. Let’s shift perspective back over to Kidu.

Nice segue.

New Oceanhorn 2 Gameplay Trailer Unveiled At GDC 2018

Ever since hearing word last year from Cornfox & Bros. that Apple TV was on the target list of platforms for Oceanhorn 2, we’ve been following its progress with keen interest.

This week, Cornfox & Bros. are in San Fransisco showing off a new gameplay trailer at the Game Developers Conference.

After reaching out to the team today to get confirmation that the sequel will be hitting Apple TV as well as mobile platforms, the emphatic reply we received, word for word, was two words long.

Upcoming Hyperforma Is Exactly How Hollywood Depicts Hacking

Original Story: You know that scene in Swordfish when Hugh Jackman’s character is breaking into a security network depicted by various cubes hovering in space? Looks like a video game right?

Stranger’s Wrath And Munch’s Oddysee Are On Sale


(Thanks to reader Lukas for the heads-up on this current sale)

Studio Oddworld Inhabitants¬†introduced us to one of gaming’s iconic universes back in 1997, when Abe’s Oddysee launched on the original PlayStation. Abe’s big-hearted courage and weaponised bodily functions brought tears to our eyes, paving the way for numerous sequels, spin-offs, HD remakes, and ports to pretty much every platform currently available.

While that first game in the series has since made its way to iPhone and iPad in the form of New ‘N’ Tasty, it hasn’t yet seen a release on Apple TV, which is a shame. It’s also odd, considering the third and fourth games in the series – Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath – have made their way to Apple’s digital-only console.

It’s those that have given ATVG cause to fire up the Mac and punch out this quick story today, as Oddworld’s two representatives on Apple TV are currently on sale.

Review: Evoland 2 – It’s Evolution, Baby


There is a world of difference between simply borrowing from classic games and genres, and paying homage, and everything that Evoland 2 does, falls confidently into the latter category.

While developer Shiro Games  has built an entire game around the idea of paying homage to predecessors, it has still somehow managed to forge an experience out of that melting pot that identifies as its own.

It’s an impressive high-wire act that deserves high praise.

Developer Profile: Vector Unit – A Decade In Games


Australia is a long way from everywhere, and you sure as hell can’t get to any other country by bus. It was with regret then that ATVG had to decline an invitation to Vector Unit’s 10 Year Anniversary Party at this year’s GDC in San Fransisco, even though it would’ve been a great opportunity to put our patented salutation into practice – safe planes and good whisky.

Vector Unit is one of the few studios with multiple games available for the Apple TV platform, and we thought a 10 year anniversary is a perfect time to have a closer look at the team, and its contribution to this relatively new digital-only console’s catalogue.
