Entertainment has teamed up with Slice HD developer TwitchGames to
offer ProtoSlice, a free app for iOS
players looking forward to Prototype 2's release next year. Come to
that, you can play it even if you're not sure what a Prototype 2 is:
the only actual prerequisite is a fondness for reflex-gaming and a
willingness to endure a fair amount of virtual finger-slicing.
Assuming you are
into Prototype 2, you'll recognize the franchise's signature Arm
Blades as the app's central obstacle. Maybe your mind's spinning with
ideas for other apps based on the technology (James Heller: Fruit
Ninja, Alex Mercer Has To Cut The Rope, etc). Radical's much wiser,
though, to hold off letting you actually control the deadly blades
until you fork out for the game in April 2012. You don't want just
anyone running wild with those things.
