Unreal Engine Powered Action RPG Brandnew Boy Hits Android

With mobile devices becoming exponentially more powerful in recent years we’ve seen a remarkable uptick in graphical capabilities to the point where many of the most impressive mobile games have graphics approaching or on par with consoles. This is also thanks to a new generation of powerful development tools previously out of reach for game studios like Unreal Engine 3 becoming available. While we haven’t seen that many Unreal Engine games land on Android yet, a fantastic looking new action RPG powered by Unreal called Brandnew Boy has arrived that infuses rhythm based combat with a cel shaded manga style.

In Brandnew Boy the aptly named hero of the story Rookie has been stranded in a bizarrely violent world with no memory of who he is or how he got there. It’s up to players to help Rookie battle his way through an army of menacing ninja eggs in a quest to restore his mem-..wait, EGGS?? Yup, eggs. The weird never stops in Brandnew Boy which is one of its charms. Its controls are atypical as well. Instead of trying to shoehorn console style controls into their game, developer Oozoo smartly implemented a rhythm based combat system similar to what was used in the Batman: Arkham series.

    No mention of the IAPs in this already four dollar game? What are they, what do they do and how many are there?

    Other than that, nice article.
