PS Mobile Update 8_14_2013, 09

Every Tuesday, there are new games, apps, and updates added to PlayStation Mobile. Aik the Barbarian, Shooting Star Featured, Instant Memory Test, and Scientific Electronic Calculator launched this week. There are also updates to Adventure Bar Labyrinth and the really popular music tapping game, Cytus Lambda. Also, one of the hottest games of the summer, Rymdkapsel, gets a price drop this week.

Price Change

Rymdkapsel by Martin Jonasson (Old price $4.99, new price $3.99)
If you didn’t get a chance to snag this intense, yet satisfying strategy game, now is your chance. Rymdkapsel is a meditative strategy game set in space. Take on the challenge of building the best possible station by commanding your minions and exploring the galaxy around you. Imagine a strategy game where you don’t have to worry about selecting units or mounting attacks on your enemies, but rather you can focus on building the best base possible. That’s what Rymdkapsel is all about.

I was planning to get Rymdkapsel so I’m going to jump on that now that the price has dropped. I love the trend that I am seeing where the PSM games are essentially a free demo and then you pay to unlock the rest. I am much more likely to buy a game that I can try first. It is especially important with PSM games because there isn’t a lot of media coverage to provide reviews scores. I love that you guys are doing these weekly updates because it is hard to keep track of all the PSM activity.

One piece of feedback, I have trouble finding the PSM game I am looking for even when I know the name of it. The search function only seems to search the regular store. The only way I have found to locate things is to guess the category it is in and browse to find it. Perhaps you can list the category in these posts or maybe I am totally missing an obvious way of locating PSM content.

Fuse PSM into the unreleased PS APP on BOTH Android and iOS and the games will sell a whole lot more.

More importantly though…still waiting on trophies.

To be honest, I think the Cytus Lambda patch is bigger news that rymdkapsel finally reaching parity in price with the iOS/Android version of the game.

The Cytus patch added 22 new songs to the game FOR FREE.

Haha, got Rymdkapsel a couple weeks back.. Quite a lovely game. :) Still play it randomly.. very time consuming in a PvZ sort of way. Not too bummed because I only paid a buck extra.

Excited about the Cytus patch.. might pick up the 12$ pack. :) Rhythm games are lacking on the Vita.. We want a Parappa!

    PaRappa *is* pretty sweet (as can be seen by my avatar choice)! Thanks for the supportive words, and I agree: Rymdkapsel is quite a strong value.

Love Rymdkapsel. It is a weird zen game that makes you lose hours of your life.

@FriedConsole That’s the truth. I’ve lost a lot of time on that game. I still can’t figure out how to research the 4 places fast enough to beat that time challenge though..

Since nobody from Sony is giving any answer about the Tomb Raider bundle problem on PlayStation store, i will question this here.

Are you guys at least looking into the problem? Any ETA?

+ lisatsunami on August 14th, 2013 at 2:06 pm said:

Hey, @12, BuBBeRX, I thought the answer for this problem was that it was a bundle with QC and if you already have QC then this won’t work, so I tested it. I have the full QC

Nope, the SEN store allowed me to add the TR bundle to my cart. I didn’t finish the purchase since I already have both games.

Do you have a trial version or demo of either game? You have to finish the trial versions or delete the demos, I think, sometimes with this error msg.

For anyone who hasn’t bought Rymdkapsel yet, now is the time.

I’d still be playing it if it had DLC. I played it for a few weeks to accomplish all the goals. (Kinda missed trophy support, since the game supports achievements on other platforms.)

I agree with everyone else — separating PSM games from the regular store is a usability nightmare. Search doesn’t work for players, visibility for game creators is lessened, etc.

I may check this out at some point, but it would be nice if trophies could be included in these games.

I second Rymdkapsel being a zen timesink, I felt the same way when I bought it (launch purchase) and I still do :) Worth the lower price for sure.

I must say that I have increasingly come to enjoy the games that are released via PSM. And if it’s at all possible to the powers-that-be; please let Square-Enix know that they should really bring Chaos Rings II and Chaos Rings Omega out as well. The first one was an awesome game – just completed it in its entirety this morning. Need more. :)

Oh, and well I’m asking for things – you should try bringing out PSM games for Blackberry Z10/Q10 – lots of gamers there would be very interested in playing these games on their system too. The world is bigger than Android and iOS :)

Rymdkapsel is an awesome game, but there’s a point in the game where no matter how strong you’ve got it going, once you collect all upgrades and resources, the only option left is to sit and watch your little pixel soldiers get blasted into oblivion. I had hit this mark on my 3rd try and watched my little fort coast easily past the 20m mark, but was left wishing I had been given the option to keep expanding against the ever-growing waves of oppression. I hope to see a more fully-featured sequel in the future. :)

@lisatsunami, your experiment doesn’t confirm anything. The store will allow you to add Tomb Raider bundle to your cart. The store will allow you to add funds. The store will not allow you to actually buy it. If you had clicked confirm, you would have gotten an error message. It may very well be Q.C. giving the system a problem since you cant technically own the same game twice. In case you had gotten it as a PS+ freebie, you would now “own” it. This should not be hard to fit, but apparently it is….

Quite a few people have been posting about this, and Sony refuses to answer, so I agree with BuBBeRX.

Rymdkapsel is a fantastic game. I highly recommend it. I would buy it again if the creator ever fleshed it out even more without boundaries, more upgrades, more rooms. All that type of stuff would make me buy it again.

And of course like many others I have to reiterate that trophies would make PSM so much better for many people.
