And the second game that I wanted to cover today from Marmalade Play is a new sports title called “The Activision Decathlon”. You can download for Android on Google Play and iOS on iTunes.
I don’t know how many of you are old enough to remember the good old “Daley Thompson’s Decathlon” back on the Spectrum / Commodore (if you are then you probably have trouble reading the text on this page ), but I was addicted to that 8 bit classic, so I have a bit of a soft spot for decathlon style games. Here’s more info on Marmalade Play’s latest and greatest:

Just a quick blog to report two great new made with Marmalade games for both iOS and Android are now available from Marmalade Play. The first of these games is a new top end racer called Blur Overdrive. You can download for Android on Google Play and iOS on iTunes.
The first game is Blur Overdrive, which is a top notch driving game. Having worked on creating around 6 racing titles for Electronic Arts in a past life I know how difficult it is to get it right and how easy it can go wrong. I’m happy to say that Blur Overdrive does a fantastic job at getting it right. Here’s more info:
Here’s a little video to whet your appetite:
Immerse yourself in the intense racing experience of Blur Overdrive. With eight insane power-ups this isn’t just racing, this is POWERED UP racing! The race track is your battle ground and you must shunt the other drivers to snatch the chequered flag and progress through the game. Buckle up and ride the beautiful chaos that is Blur Overdrive.
Collect and deploy eight pyrotechnic power-ups to aid your performance and damage rival vehicles. Barge, shock and shield your way to the finish line or use your nitro power-up to leave your opponents behind.

Blur has 9 different types of races to be won from a Showcase Battle to an Eliminator. Battle through the various races to reach new stages of competition and unleash your torque.
