Gameloft is without question one of the more popular and successful developers on iTunes. With titles like Assassin’s Creed, Avatar, and Real Soccer to their credit (and that’s keeping the list real short), Gameloft seems to be making money hand over fist on the iTunes App Store. In just the first 13 months after the app store opened up for business, Gameloft announced that it had sold over 6 million iPhone titles. Since then, the total number of paid downloads has skyrocketed to well over 20 million with Gameloft noting back in January that it’s been averaging over 1 million downloads per month. Geez Louise.
Looking to keep the proverbial rolling, Gameloft is looking to reach even newer heights as 2010 draws to a close and 2011 approaches. This past friday the company unveiled their 2010 winter iOS lineup and it looks like the hits will keep on coming. Not only will there be some sequels in the mix, but completely new titles as well. Here’s a brief rundown.
Gameloft producers call Shadow Guardian the most ambitious Gameloft title to date with over 600 character animations and 4 times as many polygons as the Avatar release from earlier this year. What type of game is this, exactly? Well, it’s an adventure game in the mold of Lara Croft and Indiana Jones, only the hero in this particular title is Nathan Drake. Climb, fight, explore, and puzzle-solve your way to victory.
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline
Yet another car game – though this one will finally take advantage of the iPhone and iPad’s retina display.
As for other sequels, there’s NOVA 2 and Dungeon Hunter 2. We haven’t played either, but if you’re a fan, rest assured that part deux is coming down through the pipeline. Other titles Gameloft has in the works include Eternal Legacy – an RPG and Star Front Collision.
