Dark Soul or Let it Die on Android and iOS mobile platform



An epic Soul-Like Game: Dark Prison: PVP Action RPG

Most people don’t think there are any games other than clickers or auto-play games on mobile. They would be wrong. It can be hard to find them, but there are actual skill-based games available. There aren’t many devs out there who would be brave enough to make a Souls-like on mobile, but fortunately for those of us who zone onto Souls-like games like Artorias’s hitbox zones into us, there is a studio that has done just that. It takes a certain type of crazy to invite comparisons to games like Let It Die or Dark Souls, but Latersoft took that challenge and has come out the other side with a respectable, stamina management, whiff punishing action game for your phone.


Dark Prison is a third-person action RPG that is available for both Apple and Android devices. It’s a highly addictive Souls-like and has great reviews. The premise is pretty straightforward. You are the parent of a precocious little girl. A deadly virus has decimated the population and it just so happens that your kid has an immunity. Obviously, she needs to get kidnapped. A dangerous mercenary group called “The Apostles” have snatched her. As the parent of the year nominee that you are, you head to rescue your child from these mercenaries. There are also other survivors that you can rescue for more resources to use in your quest to save your child. Fight through the hordes of intelligent enemies, zombies, and massive boss monsters. If you are worried that you won’t be able to dodge roll around the bad guys and mess them up, the game is compatible with Xbox and PS4 controllers.


The graphics are top-notch, even for a mobile, and they take advantage of their art style by giving you in-depth character creation. There’s also a giant loot pool for you to enjoy, much like Let It Die. Take your fashion Souls to the next level on your phone. Design your ultimate Souls-like original character, and load them up with epic gear. Take on the bosses in your fly clothes. Engage in PvP and flex on your enemies with your fly threads.


There is a thing that all Souls-like games need, and if you don’t nail it, your Souls-like card gets revoked. Dark Prison has its card laminated and safely stored in their filing cabinet. The AI is going to give you no quarter, so be ready to bring your A-game. The bosses aren’t going to play around with you either, so get ready to “get gud” or be prepared to be turned into a red smear in the boss arena. If you don’t feel the PVE you can also drop into PVP sessions to see if you have what it takes to battle a human opponent.

 If you’re tired of match 3 games, tower defense games, base building games or mindless autoplay games, check out Dark Prison. It will keep you engaged with its skill-based gameplay. The story and dialogue are delightfully camp and will keep you coming back. There are tons of places in Dark Prison to explore, so grinding for good gear won’t become boring. No matter what device you rock, you’ll be able to pick up this title for free. Check it out on the Google Play Store, or the App Store. You won’t regret it.

      Greetings. Thank you for opening this thread. Long post ahead. I am a High School student trying to get into game development. I would like to ask you a set of questions, but I think giving a context first will be the best. So, this is what's happening:
      In recent time, about 3 weeks ago, I started learning how to use Unity Game Engine and Blender. I always loved to draw and design all kinds of weapons, armors but also levels (unfortunately, all of those are on paper only, FOR NOW, of course) and when I started to think about how to apply this trait of mine, I concluded I could try creating a game. Since it's only been three weeks, my game-making skills are extremelly poor (as expected). Fast forward to yesterday. We were supposed to pick up a topic for our graduation thesis which we will hand in closely to our school-leaving examinations in year 2021. There is a TON of stuff to choose from. As long as it is part of IT, it's fine. And I chose to make a game. Well, it's more of a one level of a game in my case. More students before me have taken this topic and passed totally OK with Flappy Bird-style game they made. They were satisfied with it. I wouldn't be. I want this game to be best possible, that is why I also want to start working on it as soon as possible. In fact, I am starting right now, but I figured it would be better to ask here first. I have roughly 17 months to make a game worthy of passing. Of course, it could be some Flappy Bird. But I want to go further. Excuse me if this all sounds stupid, but I simply would not be satisfied with just any game I would make. I am well aware I won't be able to make a game like Battlefield alone, that there is a ton of people and budget behind such games. But I want it to be as best as possible.
      Now, my question is: What kind of game would I be able to make in this time of 17 months ? You have probably rolled your eyes after this question, don't worry, I understand how subjective the answer is. But I will at least try to state some metrics that can help with answer. I believe I have some fundamentals of programming, willing to learn the language needed (I believe in this case it's c#), I will be hooked on creating, animating and further improving 3D assets as needed for sure. I am able to dedicate at least 2 hours every day, a lot more so on weekends. I have to prepare for school and I also work, so that would be 2 hours of time on workdays right now. I would be able to get music and voice samples for characters in the game. 
      Here is my current plan. Please, if you see this as unreal to make in my deadline, tell me about it. I want to make one level of a FPS shooter, kinda sci-fi game with approximatelly 4-5 cutscenes and a small bossfight at the end of the level. Graphical quality would be that of a current CS:GO. Favored play-time would be, I think, around 15-20 minutes. Map would be a destroyed urban area. I have a lot of concepts (characters, weapons, rooms and so on) already drawn and if not, envisioned. If this is not possible, what would be the best game I would be able to make in 17 months ?
      Thank you for reading. Please, be honest. I know my idea can sound stupid, and answer I am looking might seem too subjective, but I want to get corrected if I am wrong with all of this. I highly value any reply that will be able to help in the slightest.
      Until then, have a nice day.

      I'm thinking on developing my own breeding game. Should be easy enougth to create the basic game mechanics and mostly the planning phase is done. I'll use "NimbleBit"s "Pocket Frogs" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_Frogs and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nimblebit.pocketfrogs&hl=de) as example, because my idea is in some ways quite similar. Android is the first platform I want to target, with optional expanding later to IOS and perhaps Windows.

      First Problem:
      I'm quite not sure about what language or engine I should use. I know this question is mainly based on opinion, but based on what I plan to do, is there an engine to prefer and why, or should I build it from scratch and wich language should I use then? At the moment my best bet would be on unity or python. Any suggestions here?

      Second (and most significant) Problem:
      I want to create a large amount  of - let's call it - monsters, that differs in color, pattern, color of the pattern and partly shape, but I don't get the trick behind it. So the question here is: How to create reusable monsters that differ in the above mentioned characteristics, with the lowest possible number of graphics.
      My thoughts and attempts on that topic: I looked at Pocket Frogs, and except shape they do exact the same with their frogs what I want to do. But I really don't get how they created over 38.000 (!!!) individual frogs, and the game still doesn't use that much space. I first tried to extract the graphics from the games files to puzzle together what they did. But I could not find them. However I think I figured out some parts of this secret just by looking at the frogs ingame: I think they used a basic frog model. 16 to be exact, to create 16 background frogs in all the colors. On top of them they just displayed the different patterns. But - and thats the mystery - the patterns are in different colors too and  I still dont believe they made 16*104=1664 different pattern graphics. So what trick am I missing here? Some kind of mask? Can I use the same technique to create different additional shapes for my monsters? And how did they made the feet moving. If the pattern on the feet are extra graphics, that would be another 1664 graphics.
      Any idea on how I can make this work, or on how did they make this work will be very appreciated! Thx

      I've just completed a 3700x build and looking to purchase a monitor and graphics card.I'm currently torn between 5700xt + free sync or saving a little and getting G-sync + 2070 Super. I'm a bit confused with free sync as a lot of the monitors only allow free sync in the 35-90hz zone?
      Could someone explain to me the differences, the pro's and cons and help me match a monitor and card.
      When it comes to Nvidia cards, I'm unsure what brand to go for, MSI Trio is over £150 cheaper than the ASUS equivalent and Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC 3x 8G is almost £200 cheaper that the ASUS.
      My preference is 27" non-curved 1440p VA or IPS panel. I'm not interested in TN.

      Valve made their own GUI library called VGUI. I am wondering how were they able to make their GUI library and what methods they used to make it. Did they use Win32 API or something else. Is there an open source code for VGUI?
      Please answer these questions and help me out as much as you can.

      So to give a bit of context as to what i'm trying to achieve and where i seem to be failing at:
      I'm currently implementing an SSAO approach which requires me to reconstruct the viewspace position from the depth buffer.
      The depth is encoded into an RGB (24 bit) texture. (As i can't access the depth buffer directly.)
      To prepare for depth reconstruction i inverse the projection matrix: (and i think herein lies the issue: )
      Now, i noticed that there is an issue with the reconstructed depth component in the shader.
      So in DirectX, +Z goes towards the screen while -Z goes into the distance (effectively reversed compared to OpenGL)
      However, after hours of debugging i simply tried to render the sign of the Z coordinate. And this is the result:

      For some reason, the Z coordinate is positive (up until a point) which is shown as the green coloring in the scene.
      And after that it becomes red (where z becomes negative).
      From my understanding it should be all red (as the Z component should start to be negative from the cameras origin point.)
      (The encoding/decoding of RGB values was tested and shouldn't be the culprit.) Has anyone an idea/direction as to what the issue could be? (I think that maybe the conversion process for the inversion call might be the cause of this?. Or maybe the reconstruction in the shader is wrong?)
