Gameloft announces Xperia Play exclusive title - BackStab

Mysterious image no longer quite so mysterious

Product: BackStab | Publisher: Gameloft | Genre: Action, Adventure
For: Android   Also on: iPhone, iPad
 
BackStab Android, thumbnail 1
Gameloft has pulled the covers off the mysterious game it teased last week, and - while we managed to score a few direct hits in our guesses - it’s not quite what we expected.

Set in the 18th century, BackStab puts you in the buckled boots of Henry Blake, wrongly accused of treason, who’s out looking for justice in a free-roaming action-adventure.

Gameloft promises a "dynamic combat system’" that involves counter-attacks and all that jazz, as well as side-quests and diversions from the main story, such as duels and races.

The biggest surprise (other than the fact that we still can’t quite place what game this is a clone of) is that it won’t be released first on iOS.

Instead, it’s an Xperia Play exclusive for a month, after which other mobile gamers get a chance to swing their virtual cutlasses and say "arr".

BackStab will be out in spring for an undisclosed price.

Yeah, that's the pick in the office, but it isn't quite as directly 'inspired by' as a lot of the company's other titles going by the screenshots (wrong era for one thing).
