Breakout: The Dark Prison, The Best ARPG Of 2019



Breakout: The Dark Prison is due to release in the summer of 2019. Moreover, this exciting ARPG will enter a rapidly growing market. In recent years, the sub-genre has seen a slew of releases — some of which stand-out as household titles. In truth, the ARPG format is a niche bracket. Especially in the Android/iOS market. Even more, reason then, for this game to flourish in its respective field.

Commonly, games within this sub-genre contain complex systems, heavy dungeon-crawling elements, and an extensive progression tree. All of which coincides with an integrated battle system. Either turn-based or otherwise. Only when these systems successfully infuse, do we get a must-play experience. On that note, Breakout: The Dark Prison is in line to be a smash hit this summer. But which games share similar systems? And why is it that Breakout: The Dark Prison looks set to raise the benchmark for android ARPG titles?

With that in mind, below, are a handful of the reasons why Latersoft's latest venture is expected to take the genre by storm. As this article will testify, Breakout: The Dark Prison is hands-down one of the best Android/iOS action RPG games coming in 2019.

One of the best games in the market at present is Implosion-Never Lose Hope. What sets this game apart are the high production values and visual polish. Both of which go hand-in-hand with its addicting gameplay, and wonderfully inventive bosses. Luckily, Breakout: The Dark Prison shares many of the themes that make 'Implosion' such as genre great, and a blast to play.

Much like 'Implosion,' Breakout; The Dark Prison is a highly immersive experience. Mainly, because of the extensive variety of game-play systems on offer to the player. In short, Breakout: The Dark Prison has a player progression system unlike any other whereby players can shape their character in the manner of their choosing. Thus, a sense of destiny lies firmly in the palms of the player.

For instance, XP tots up any of the main skill tiers. Each of which has a profound influence on game-play, impacting upon style and execution. It's this flexibility that instills a sense of freedom.

Similarly, to 'Implosion,' Breakout: The Dark Prison boasts of immense production values. In all but every department. Particularly concerning its graphical capabilities. Frankly, for an Android game, the visuals genuinely take your breath away, pushing the hardware to its conceivable limits. That said, the attention to detail is present all around. Everything from the fleshed-out backdrops, to the crisp character models, looks fantastic. Not to mention the artistic boss designs. It is clear, therefore, that a lot of love and craft has gone into this game, and it benefits because of this fact.

Finally, we come to combat. Just like Implosion - Never Lose Hope, Breakout: The Dark Prison exhibits a multi-layered combat mechanic that's both rewarding and satisfying in equal measure. Mostly, Breakout: The Dark Prison stands out from the pack, courtesy of its fine-tuned systems which strike a delicate balance. Alongside a slick UI, which compliments the fast-paced, hack and slash combat. In all honesty, the more you invest in Breakout: The Dark Prison, the higher the personal reward.

All in all, some games fit the mold of an ARPG better than others — besides, it's a difficult genre to nail. Thankfully, Breakout: The Dark Prison is a well-rounded, and polished experience. And one that extracts the very best from both its RPG and action elements. The result is a game surely destined to be the best action RPG game on an Android/iOS device in 2019. Finally, the summer is set to be a sensation, with the arrival of Breakout: The Dark Prison and the good news is, we've not got long to wait.

      I've been taking a few classes in game design and think I want to make a career out of it, but I don't know the requirements on creating a game that I can legally sell can someone tell me?

      So I've heard that rendering front-to-back can increase performance due to the z buffer. I understand how this works but what happens to blending? In order for blending to work you need to render from back-to-front. Moreover:
      For blending, the technique I know and use, is that in every frame I calculate the distances of all the objects from the camera, then order the objects in descending order from larger distance to smallest and then render first, the objects which are farther from the camera.
      This has two disadvantages, first the calculation of the distances and the ordering take some time and secondly I can't use front-back rendering. The first disadvantage can be optimized with a tree queue quite well but still I need to go through all the objects in order to generate that tree (nlogn total time).
      Is there a way to mix this blend technique with front-end rendering? or am I stuck except if my scene does not use transparent objects at all?

      I want to create an easy to use game engine for iPads and maybe iPhones, and I feel like using Apple's APIs would be the best toolset for this job. With that said, would it make more sense to use their high level frameworks like SpriteKit or SceneKit for this, or should I use their low level Metal framework?
      The benefits of SpriteKit and SceneKit is that all the rendering code is done already, all the input handling, physics, particles, etc, and it would make this engine much faster to develop. But, if I use Metal, it would give me more control over what to render. The question now is, do I really need low level rendering for this specific project? Should I care about the amount of control offered to the users of this engine? Or is this a question I have to answer myself?
      This would be my first attempt at a game engine, but I've got ~2 years of programming experience with other game engines like Unity, and I've dabbled in Swift for iOS apps.
