A branching storyline and time limits force gamers into split-second decisions, but once the "Climax Gauge" is full, time slows down momentarily to let pilots unleash a screen-clearing fusillade of bullets.

Dead Space Ignition is an action puzzle game developed by Megatube and Sumo Digital and published by Electronic Arts for the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. It is a followup to the survival horror third-person shooter video game Dead Space 2, set between the two main games, which was released on October 12, 2010. The game takes the form of what executive producer Steve Papoutsis describes as an "interactive comic-style game" and is written by Antony Johnston, the writer of the Dead Space games and comic book series.
After completing the game, players will receive bonus items for Dead Space 2, including a hacker-themed suit with 15% armor and 15 inventory slots, as well as a bonus to the hacking portions of the game. Players also receive a hacker-themed Contact Beam weapon, extra power nodes, health packs, ammunition, and audio logs. These bonuses are found in "conduit rooms" unlocked with a Dead Space Ignition completed save file.
The EA press release outlined the basic plot of Ignition, revealing that the game "takes place on the Sprawl [the setting of Dead Space 2] and challenges players to survive the initial Necromorph outbreak", which then sets up the plot of Dead Space 2. Executive producer Steve Papoutsis suggested that the game, the first of a number of related additions to the series, "will give Dead Space fans a unique perspective on the events leading up to Dead Space 2, and will also introduce the storyline to a brand-new audience of gamers." Dead Space Ignition takes place before the events of Dead Space 2.

The story of Guwange is set during the Muromachi period of Japan. During this time, increasing numbers of people suffer possession by shikigami. Although the shikigami grant great spiritual powers, the strain inflicted on the host causes them to die exactly one year after possession. However, a legend has sprung up regarding Guwange, the malevolent god trapped in Mt. Gokumon (i.e. Hell Gate). If one possessed by a shikigami can gather talismans of the five Chinese elements—wood, fire, earth, metal, water—from five demons serving Guwange, then infiltrate Gokumon and slay Guwange, the shikigami will be destroyed and the one possessed will not suffer a premature death.

1942: Joint Strike takes inspiration and influence from the 194X series of Capcom vertical shooters. The art, sound and gameplay give the players hints of the classic historical shoot-em-up franchise, but this entry stands out as its own entry in the franchise and utilizes a full 3D engine along the traditional 2D top-down perspective.
The action takes place during an alternate timeline of World War II. Locales, vehicles and weapons have the same look and feel of the classic battleships and planes, but the battles over the Pacific were never this hot or this insane -- your single fighter will turn the tides of history, but only if you survive!
