Imageepoch ‘s Petite Rock Shooter browser game, a Black Rock Shooter spin-off that features illustrations from Zaneed’s CHANxCO, is getting its own slew of spin-offs in the form of several iOS game apps.
Today two of these apps were officially announced: Pursue the Mystery of the Sexy Planet, and Maya-tan’s World Destruction Diary.
Petite Rock Shooter: Pursue the Mystery of the Sexy Planet
Described as a “Shooting X RPG X Sexy” game, Pursue the Mystery of the Sexy Planet (Sexy Wakusei no Nazo wo Oe) has players exploring an “Onsen Sexy Planet” (温泉セクシー惑星) as the titular petite heroine, fending off against waves and waves of Onsen Planet denizens who drop treasure when defeated.
To attack these enemies, you perform a flick on the touchscreen in the direction you’d like the heroine’s bullets to fly.
Apart from regular enemies, each level in the game app is also concluded with a boss encounter: giant-sized foes, officially called “Sexy Enemies”, who are played by various renowned voice actresses.
Sexy Enemies are thus named for the responses they let out when you manage to hit their weak points.
Defeat a Sexy Enemy to earn a rare treasure. Then head back to HQ, pick out new weapons, bullets, and avatar customisations, before moving on to your next sortie.
Here’s a partial list of Sexy Enemies and their respective character voices (CV):
Great Zukka Seijin (ぐれーとズッカ星人)
CV: Kaori Nazuka (名塚佳織)
Great Cande Seijin (ぐれーとキャンデ星人)
CV: Hitomi Nabatame (生天目仁美)

Black Rock Shooter: Pursue the Mystery of the Sexy Planet is a free-to-play title (with paid premium items) that will be released on the iTunes app store sometime in September. Supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and all iPads running iOS 5.0 and above.
Petite Rock Shooter: Maya-tan’s World Destruction Diary
Translated from the press release:
According to the Mayans, the world is slated to end on December 23, 2012. In other words, the countdown towards world destruction has already began.
And the only folks who can stop the world from ending, are the Petite Hunters. Who love cosplay.
Only through the Petite Hunters’ combined power can you stop the world from ending. So raise them in this simulation game, and save the world from danger.
(Seriously, folks, I’m not making this up. This is quite literally what the Japanese press release says)”
The goal of this game appears to be improving your Petite Hunters’ stats and going on raids to attack the king of the Mayans for points. Players are also encouraged to fill up a book of Petite Hunter illustrations.
Outside of the core game, Maya-tan’s World Destruction Diary is also a calendar app that will notify you of various Petite/Puchitto Rock Hunter anniversaries, read out to you by various voice actresses.
Maya-tan’s World Destruction Diary will also be free to download, available from the iTunes app store sometime in September. Again, iPhones 3GS/4/4S and all iPads are supported, as long as it’s running iOS 5.0 or above.
