Revolution 60 is a breakthrough game for iOS, using the strength of the touch interface to tell an intense, movie-length story. It features gorgeous animations using the Unreal Engine and has gameplay that is accessible to the casual iOS user. It is fully voice acted, and lovingly animated with a cast of complex, strong female characters.
The press has called Revolution 60, "Heavy Rain meets Mass Effect." Players will control Holiday, a trained assassin using intuitive gestures with the touchscreen. Your mission is to regain control of the orbital weapons platform N313. Make your choices and accept the consequences.
Revolution 60 also has an intuitive yet deep combat system, designed for the touch screen. Players will battle on a grid, and strike when the moment is right with cinematic moves. Players of all skill levels can enjoy the combat of R60.
For best performance, we strongly recommend upgrading your device to the latest iOS version, and minimizing background apps while running. Revolution 60 supports the iPad 2 and all later models, the iPhone 4S and all later models, and the iPod Touch 5th gen. Support can be found at Revolution60.com/support
What's New in Version 1.2
- Revolution 60 now runs iPhone 6 and 6+. Many cupcakes died to bring you this feature 24 hours after it was announced.
- Revolution 60 now supports iOS 8! Stop emailing me.
- So many people complained that [Reference not found] died, I made Amanda animate an ending possibility where she lives. Like a BOSS.
- Crimson learned Asimov's laws of robotics and now feels very bad.
- Extra, secret scenes in the storage room with barrels, the most thrilling Revolution 60 set!
- After three weeks of #gamergate nonsense, the women on the dev team were lifted to new levels of faith in humanity.
On my second playthrough
The story seems ok if seemingly inconsistent at times (kinda annoyed at how a certain attitude lead to no choice endings but I'm exploring more options while upping the difficulty).
The mastery tree feels kinda weird and I wish that you can see all the options before you start leveling but if youre good enough, tjat doesnt matter. It's hard to empathize with the character actions at times but riding along for the story seems ok. At times conversation seems to repeat itself just to give a slight bit more information than before (poor tact, writing team). The animation, though not a 21st century wonderland, has a surprising amount of detail and charm in its retro style. I hope that they can allow the settings to be a little more encompassing in an update or in the next game (turn your head faster, Rafalka!)
Overall, it's a good 4 hour run + additional runs to get all the endings. 4 out of 5 annoyingly researched soybeans. I look forward to the sequal
I bought this game and so should you!
Revolution 60 has more character and heart than most games out there. One might look at this game and be a little put off by some of the textures but frankly if you allow that to color your opinion you may be to shallow for this game. The deep relationships that exist between the characters are amazing and can make for some awkward conversation choices, I often wondered if I was going to completely alienate Min since I always sided with Amelia. This is a really well done story that in some ways reminded me of the classic game "No One Lives Forever" but set in future space. The combat is interesting and a bit challenging I have not seen anything like it, there is a good mix of strategy and quick time events that are really more like mini games. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Revolution 60 and look forward to more amazing Giant Spacekat games.
Great for what it's worth
Revolution 60 was quite the extraordinaire. It didn't feel unique, but what it did do was better than what most triple A titles have done in the past. The concept of this game is great, but I feel it was hindered by the developers lack of funds or otherwise. Needless to say it was very fun. Outside of minor graphical complaints, such as the lack of fluid movement and lighting, the rest of the game filled in those holes by distracting you with a controllable story and interactive gameplay. The theme is golden, although some may view it as sexist. I, on the other hand, think it was just right considering what it was aiming for. The cast felt like they all came out of a futuristic Bond film that retained it's 70's style.
Overall it's definitely worth the play and I hope the developers can exceed my expectations for the sequel.
