The Last Post

Dear friends,

Many things have happened this last year, we have learnt a lot (specially about how to make things in the wrong way), but somehow we managed to survive and evolve. We’re not Tormentes anymore, now we are the AlienTorch, a name that is more afine to our spirit, an indie company with bright ideas and decided to put vibrant tech at your fingertips.

We have learnt how small we are and despite our efforts we cannot keep this blog (or our Facebook page) updated. So with terrible sadness, we are blocking them today. We’ll keep them online, as a memorial to our first steps, but they won’t be updated anymore.

Anyway you still can reach us (an keep updated of our projects) on our new web page:  and on our Twitter: @AlienTorch

Thanks for your support and see you around!

Indie Game: Gravity Escape

Gravity Escape is the first game of Vivified Bits, a 2-man indie company founded in 2015 which has been developing Android tools until now. Gravity Escape is the incursion of the company in the gaming territory and, although they are still learning about this whole new world, they have created a quite promising puzzle game.

In Gravity Escape your goal is to help your avatar to escape from a solar system which is try to trap it. You don’t have direct control over your avatar, but you can manipulate how it is affected by the gravity of the solar bodies.

Original visuals, a music perfectly chosen and puzzles of increasing difficulty create a quite good game experience and an excellent way to kill some time solving this gravity problems. The controls are simple, but somehow are a bit hard to get used to them, anyway when you get it, the game becomes more and more interesting.

From time to time you have also to take moral decisions which will affect your incoming, these decisions add an interesting layer to the game: Do you mind use violence to get a few extra bucks? How important is the life of that guy compare to all the money you can lose if he opens his mouth?

The game also allows you to share your achievements in Facebook to show your friends how good you are making money (and illegal business). By the way, what you share in Facebook is the statement of the virtual bank where you have accumulated all that money, which is a very original way to show’em all who’s the boss.

[Tips for beginner witches] Read ingredient labels

Always read ingredient labels before opening any recipient. Many witches had suffered unpleasant surprises because not to follow this simple rule. And if you can afford it, buy good quality ingredients (Ollivanders brand is excellent), this can also help to avoid some disasters, for instance, some ingredient makers don’t detach the bat wings from the actual bat just to save a few cents… and that, believe me, can be a terrible problem for you.

[Tips for beginner witches] Buying ingredients

When you go to your nearest magic shop to buy ingredients, remember that proper etiquette is very important and try not to argue with the shopkeeper. He knows you are a powerful witch, but he also knows better than anyone what ingredients you need to cook a perfect potion, so keep a good relation with him.

BONUS: Seducing him is not an option to pay less for the ingredients, they usually wear magic glasses to avoid such deceptions.

Indie Game: Alien Bang Bang

Developed by a small team (Game Changer), Alien Bang Bang is a classic shoot’em up with good retro graphics and a classic but effective mechanic. But what makes it really special is how controls have been designed: you rotate your mobile clockwise or anti-clockwise to move your spaceship right or left, and tap the screen to shoot. At first it’s a bit hard but when you get used of it, you realize how clever the design is. Add this to the good visuals and the amazing music and you will have a game you don’t want to miss.



Stop by the Game Changer facebook to know more about their projects.

And download their game for free from Google Play and App Store.

Indie Game: Time Pirates

A few days ago, here at Tormentes basecamp, we had an informal chat about how marvelous would be a game that allow us to destroy structures and buildings in order to inflict damage to our targets. And just a couple of days later we found Time Pirates, a game that do exactly that!

Time Pirates is a 3D game built over the Project Anarchy engine, and for those who don’t know about this engine, only tell you that Havok is behind the project and it shares some of the same technologies used in Assassin’s Creed 4, Halo 4 and Skyrim.

In Time Pirates you are, of course, a pirate, and as any good pirate, your main goal is to loot as many locations as you can. Only equipped with your loyal cannon and sailing your good old boat, you’ll arrive to your first shore and then it’s when the fun starts. The mechanics are simple to get but hard to master: every location have a few structures where your enemies are hiding, so point your cannon to their weak spots and demolish them in order to eliminate your targets.

Time Pirates

The game is divided in several levels of increasing difficulty, and an in-game economy has been implemented, which means you’ll get some money every time your pass a level and you can use it to buy improvements for your cannon and boats. Different types of ammunition, some special weapons, hard bosses, time travelling, a challenging leaderboard and many other surprises make of this a very enjoyable game which will keep you in front of your mobile screen for many hours.

Download if for free from Google Play and remember to check the developer webpage out for more info.
