*Better* DS and PSP Covers

on Monday, August, 01, 2011 4:49 PM
Hey guys,

I bought a 3DS two days ago and can finally play Evolution (I had the game, just no system to play it on!). I gotta say, it's actually a lot of fun and turned out to be much better than I thought it would. I thoroughly enjoyed Evolution on the PS3 and Battle Grids for the Wii, but I wasn't expecting much from the handheld versions.

I find it irritating that this game has it's own story, which is pretty good actually, but yet the cover art is the exact same as Battle Grids.

Would any photoshop experts out there be willing to design better covers for the DS and PSP games? Covers that, you know, actually help sell the story lines of each game?

I'll see what I can do. What are the stories for those two games anyway (I only have Battle Grids)

DS: The Grid is experiencing power outages, causing programs to resort to their most basic functions due to a lack of energy and start attacking everyone. You are a new system monitor assigned to investigate the situation.

PSP: You're a program who is trying to win the Game Grid championship.


TRON 2.0 (PC) name - TRON.dll
I'll play any mode, but I'm best at LC.



PSN - TRON-dll
XBOX Live/Games for Windows Live - TRONdll
-I have a Wii, DS, and 3DS. PM me to exchange friend codes.

Clearly, the DS version is the better game of the two. But at least the few opening scenes of the PSP version are satisfying--it opens at Flynn's Arcade in 1985, with Flynn in his secret hideout, developing new grid games tech--like new light cycles, for example, that can jump. You start the game as Tron--testing out the cycle. Then, you hire a recruit to enter the grid games and the story pretty much stops.

To those who have beaten the DS version......what's causing the power failures? Is it just that the Grid is too new at this point, and Flynn is overloading it with too much information at once? Are the hard drives storing the Grid outdated and too small? I spoke with a character in Tron City who said it had been "over a billion cycles" since it had been defragmented. Odd, because the game is rumored to take place in 1984--a billion cycles couldn't have happened yet, could they have?

Oh, okay thanks.

I liked the PSP game quite a bit, myself. The multiple event structure sort of reminded me of the classic Tron coin-op, and I loved the design work - the Gen 3 lightcycle in particular really feels like the midpoint between the classic lightcycles and the Gen 5 design in Legacy.

Am I the only one who got the feeling that the engine was originally designed to handle a more story-oriented Tron game, though? I mean, you had these robust on-foot events with disc and melee combat, stealth attacks, hacking consoles... as much as I enjoyed the gameplay, I would have loved to have seen the game tell a story along the lines of the other versions. (I'd still like to see them do something like that using the same engine, but given that the PSP's nearing the end of its life cycle and I don't imagine any new Tron games until Uprising hits, it doesn't seem likely. : / )

I made this for everyone...my version on my computer is the exact size it needs to be, but Photobucket resizes everything. Bummer. If you want the full sized version, send me a PM with your email address!
