From Steve Palley at GameSpot: SAN FRANCISCO--We're happy to report that King Kong is just about ready for his grand mobile debut. The development of this side-scrolling action adventure game has been under close wraps (we were only able to play a single level at E3), but Gameloft let us go hands-on again with a nearly complete version of the game at CTIA. This time around, we tried our hand at Level 11--Kong's climactic journey to the top of the Empire State Building. The top-notch character animation doesn't seem to have changed much, as Kong still lopes along with realistic simian grace, and he shakes the ground when he leaps. However, this was the first extended climbing sequence we saw the big gorilla perform. [More]
