From Hook Champ to Mage Gauntlet, RocketCat Games is one of the leading indie iOS developers. Thus far, every game they have made has garnered praise from gamers and gaming press alike, and there’s no surprises seeing as how they’ve all been fun. In this interview, RocketCat talks to DIYGamer about how it all started and where it’s headed, including a PC port of one of their games sometime this year.
RocketCat Games should — by this point — be synonymous with iOS games… excellent iOS games, actually. Everything they have released up until this point has been gold, certified by thousands of gamers and dozens of press and industry figures (IGF anyone?). So why is it so surprising that Mage Gauntlet is their best game thus far? For one thing, it doesn’t involve hooks, although it does involve a very unique (and awesome) gauntlet. For another, it’s much more of an RPG than their earlier titles, which were based around jump/hook/platforming kinds of experiences. Either way, Mage Gauntlet is an absolute must-own on the iOS because it’s pretty much the definitive mobile action-RPG — minus some terrific RPG elements that could have improved the overall experience.
