Last March, we commented on the developer’s proposal GameClub resurrecting old iOS games that were abandoned by their original creators, redistributing them on your platform.
In May, the company released a handful of (old) titles on TestFlight for users enrolled in its testing program to take advantage of, with more news coming now.
Space Miner Blast
Considered the best game for iPhone in 2010 by TouchArcadeSpace Miner Blast is a space hunting role-playing game originally developed by Venan Entertainment (now called Megaspace Industries).
Space Miner Blast is a spin off of the old game Space Miner, both abandoned by then Venan Entertainment when Apple introduced the iPhone 4 and, with it, the Retina display – which caused the end of many apps, given the cost to develop them with such quality for that time . GameClub has now released both titles – Space Miner Blast and Space Miner: Platinum – on TestFlight, free of charge.
Super Crate Box
Also released in 2010, Super Crate Box is a 2D-style shooter from Vlambeer. Basically, the player must reach the weapon boxes to destroy an endless stream of enemies for as long as possible. Every time a box is opened, you receive a new random weapon, which can be quite powerful, or not so much.
The game was released for Windows and macOS before being made available for iOS in 2012, when it achieved the top score of TouchArcade for its “incredibly fast and chaotic” rhythm. Unfortunately, the game received fewer and fewer updates over time, eventually being phased out – until now.
Like all GameClub games, Super Crate Box is available for free on TestFlight.
Like previous games, Glorkian Warrior is a super fun action title in which you must defeat all enemies before they reach you. With horizontal gameplay, the game also features fun illustrations by American author and cartoonist James Kochalka.
Glorkian Warrior is not yet available on Apple’s TestFlight, but both he and the other titles mentioned above are available on the Discord server, also at no cost.
Therefore, it is time to enjoy the games (not exactly new ones) before the service is officially launched next month, when it will be necessary to subscribe to the GameClub product to have access to all games.
