Gameloft brings Dungeon Hunter 5, pre-register now for rewards

Posted by wicked January - 21 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Top-rated developer Gameloft has announced the fifth installment of the Dungeon Hunter series is currently in the works, but this early, followers of the game, as well as new users, can pre-register at the game’s micro-site (see source link below) to qualify for in-game rewards that can come in handy once the game launches officially.

Although Dungeon Hunter 5 is still under development, Gameloft has so far revealed that this version of the widely-popular game carries vast improvements with regard to graphics, gameplay, and user interface. Through its Developer Diary videos both on YouTube and the micro-site, Gameloft is saying that DH5 features a new multiplayer aspect, along with a “fusion” feature that allows the player to level up weapons and gear along with their primary character. The multiplayer element is especially interesting, as it allows players to create their own bases, or more appropriately called “dungeons,” and fill it up with characters or minions that they can use to raid other players’ dungeons for gold or to defend the player’s own. The cherry on top here is that at the end of each raid, one is forced to confront the user’s primary character, making it the boss opponent.

The storyline for Dungeon Hunter 5 is essentially a carry-over from the fourth installment, where the player now deals with the consequences of the events in DH4. In the aftermath of the demon invasion, the fictional kingdom of Valenthia has splintered, leaving everyone to fend for themselves. Users are no longer soldiers of war but now play as bounty hunters who must band together to survive against the demon onslaught. A typical player must obtain gold (which serves as the in-story currency to buy weapons and stuff, as well as someone else’s allegiance), gems (to unlock rare items), and fusion boosters that can be used to upgrade one’s own avatar together with its gear to make for a more formidable in-game character.

Players are encouraged to sign up now to receive in-game rewards when Dungeon Hunter 5 finally rolls out. Early registrants, however, are encouraged to promote the game even further, as Gameloft reveals the more the game is shared on social media, more rewards will be unlocked for players. So if you’re looking for some rare in-game sword or bow, it might be a good idea to visit the DH5 micro-site now and start sharing to your comrades.

Crusaders Quest: 16-bit RPG lets you be a goddess-saving hero

Posted by wicked January - 19 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

If it’s always been your secret dream to become a hero and rescue goddesses from peril, now is the time to let this out when you play this new 16-bit RPG for Android devices. Crusaders Quest is not about the Middle Ages campaign to win back the Holy Land but rather about you and your ragtag group who need to save the planet from the forces of evil.

An evil witch’s curse has put the land in peril and it’s only the powers of the goddesses, with the help of you and your 16-bit heroes, that can make things right. The game has over 200 heroes and 6 classes of them that you can collect and control as you try to save the goddesses from monsters roaming the land through solving real-time puzzle matches. Once you’ve trained the heroes in battle, you can send them in PVP battles to see if they can prove their mettle. You also need to help unlock and unleash the goddesses’ special powers that will surely come in handy.

The game, despite being an RPG, is not really that complicated so it could actually be fun (if you don’t like too complicated kinds of games). It is a puzzle combat game that lets you match skill blocks in order to defeat the enemy. The more matches you make, the better attack you’ll have. And if you fill your power meter enough, you get such weapons and moves like Archer’s Fire Rain or the Holy Hammer.

Crusaders Quest is free to download from the Google Play Store. But there are in-app purchases available so be sure you’re disciplined enough to just buy stuff when you need to or if you’re not, simply turn off the auto permissions so you won’t be tempted.

Slime your way to victory with Ambition of the Slimes

Posted by wicked January - 19 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

How does it feel be a slime? You’ll know when you play a round or two of this new simulation game called Ambition of the Slimes. This is like a classic simulation RPG complete with the pixelated graphics. Game was originally in Japanese because it was developed by Altairworks, a Japanese game application developer. It was recently translated to English so it’s only now that the game is gaining more attention outside of the country.

The goal of the game is to finish off enemies by attacking them with slime. No, you don’t need to accumulate slime within the game because you are the slime. The main hero, the slime, can take over the enemies to control them. For example, you can take over a mage to use magic. Take over a merchant and bribe your enemies. Should you want to defeat an archer, take over him and use a bow and arrow.

You can actually choose from among the different types of slime. Using various tactics, you can strategize on how you can slime your way to victory. Take over a more powerful enemy or teleport slime to win. You won’t win easily though just by attacking the other camp. You need to think of effective tactics and strategies to succeed.

The pixelated graphics of the background and the characters make Ambition of the Slimes one cool retro game. The setting is a world where evil humans appeared. The seas and the skies were all polluted. Forests were all burned. Tyranny was reigning and inhabitants were expecting the end of days. But good thing the heroes learned to slime their way into the bodies of the enemies to take over them and do anything.

Com2uS Dragon Knights: RPG in name, dungeon crawler in deed

Posted by wicked January - 16 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

Mobile gaming, for all its benefits and strengths, has somewhat diluted the definition of the RPG genre lately. What was once a class of games with rather clear borders have started bleeding into the description of any game that involves a crew of characters with sword and magic. This new Dragon Knights game from Com2uS is one such game that masquerades as an RPG but really comes closer to a dungeon crawler. That said, RPG or not, that doesn’t mean that this game can’t be fun.

In essence, Dragon Knights is a turn-based dungeon crawler, albeit one that has a backstory, no matter how flimsy or thin it may be. The basics are the same: go through dungeons to fight monsters and save the world from the devil horde. To do so, you will have to build up your motley crew from an assortment of available heroes. Though there are indeed many characters to choose from, they do fall under one of four classes, which lends to the RPG-like feel of the game. Oh, and you do get pets to summon and help you in your battles.

The game plays over in both single player and multiplayer modes. The multi player gameplay comes via cooperative boss raids and boss battles. There’s also a PvP arena to test your team’s mettle. Like majority of mobile games, the game has a ladderized progression system where each new distinct level is unlocked by finishing the ones before it. You enter a dungeon and the battle commences. There is very little in terms of exploration that you might find in conventional RPGs. The graphics of the game are very basic, with miniaturized 3D models set on a flattened 3D background.

21 best Android games with no in app purchases

final fantasy 4 on the HTC One best Android games with no in app purchases
Freemium hit Android in a big way. In an atmosphere where developers were literally being destroyed by piracy, they needed to fight back and in-app purchases came into existence. This allowed them to make their games free and to slowly pluck money out of consumers’ pockets as they played. This turned into a serious cash cow for developers as in-app purchases now account for over 90% of all app and game revenue. However, even though in app purchases have slowed the lost flow of revenue from piracy, developers are still learning how to use them without offending all of us. For those who hate Freemium, there are still some developers who rock the old school model of pay-once. Here are the best Android games with no in app purchases.


Icewind Dale best Android games with no in app purchasesBaldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, and Icewind Dale

[Price: $9.99 each]
We grouped these three games together because they were all released by the same developer (Beamdog). All three titles are huge, immersive RPGs that were ported from PC to Android in 2014. They feature very long stories with complex game play and are sure to keep you busy for months upon months. The graphics are decent but not amazing because even by PC standards these games are pretty old. However, these are three of the better RPGs to grace PC and Android. It says that these games have in-app purchases but the purchases are nothing more than voice packs and other miscellany that has no effect whatsoever on the actual game.

the banner saga best designed android games with no in app purchasesThe Banner Saga

[Price: $9.99]
The Banner Saga is a strategy RPG developed by former members of BioWare. It features beautiful hand-drawn graphics, a deep story line that requires the gamer to make decisions that affect the story, and an easy learning curve. It’s inspired by Norse mythology and it happened to be a member of our best designed Android games of 2014. It’s a wonderful play if you like strategy RPGs.

Doom & Destiny best Android games with no in app purchasesDoom & Destiny

[Price: Free / $2.99]
Doom & Destiny is another RPG title with a lot of content and no in app purchases. It uses retro style graphics similar to the SNES and NES RPGs of old and includes a 20-hour story line with 20 hours of additional stuff to do, turn based combat, 10,000 lines of dialogue, and hundreds of spells, items, and other things to collect. The $0.99 price tag makes this among the cheaper games on this list and there is even a free version you can pick up with advertising.

Five Nights at Freddy's 2 best Android games with no in app purchasesFive Nights at Freddy’s 1 and 2

[Price: $2.99 each]
Five Nights at Freddy’s 1 and 2 are horror games. You play as a security guard who has to keep watch over possessed animatronics in a pizzeria. If you don’t do a good enough job (or disguise yourself in the 2nd one), they’ll get you. These games are strangely terrifying and were two of the best games released in 2014. They’re also fairly cheap and the game play is easy to learn.

Goat Simulator best games with no in app purchasesGoat Simulator

[Price: $4.99]
A lot of people don’t like Goat Simulator because it is, at its core, an intentionally unfinished piece of buggy garbage. However, if you have a sense of humor, this game can be quite a bit of fun. You control a goat as you do goat things like exploding and flying through the air as though you were shot out of a cannon. The frequent bugs and glitches are the game’s biggest draw and it’s a goofy way to spend a couple of hours.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas best android games with no in app purchasesGrand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas

[Price: $4.99, $4.99, and $6.99 respectively]
Rockstar has had great success in porting their Grand Theft Auto series to mobile. In fact, San Andreas won our best game of 2013 award. These games are huge and provide dozens of hours of game play. You can drive around doing whatever you want or follow the story, the choice is yours. The graphics aren’t amazing but they’re not terrible either. The only unfortunate part is the earlier Grand Theft Auto games suffer from some bugs here and there which have angered many people. In any case, make sure you try them before the two hour refund time in Google Play in case you don’t like them.

Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked December - 23 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

What is Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut

Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut is a game that is based on a tabletop RPG by the same name that was originally released in 1989 that had a number of video game that were released from 1993 to 2013. Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut combines fantasy, cyberpunk, and crime genres in a very unique way. It’s in the Google Play Store for $6.99.

The game is set up as a strategy RPG and thus retains many of the strategy RPG elements including game boards and mechanics. The game uses a mission structure where you must complete missions to advance the story. The game features a classless growth system based on skill points so you can grow your team as you choose and a full story with five additional missions and alternate endings.

The graphics and sound are surprisingly good for how old this game is. The developers have redesigned pretty much every aspect of the title from its earlier incarnations and pretty much all of the redesigns took the game in a positive direction. It is story driven and you play in a dystopian society where crime is rampant and companies go unregulated. You play as a team of shadowrunners who do jobs and earn a payday but put that on hold to deal with a deadly threat.

Shadowrun Dragonfall DC review

One hell of a game.

PROS
  • After 25 years, the premise of ‘tech meets magic’ is still just as enjoyable as ever.
  • Plenty of missions, content, alternate endings, and more to keep players engaged.
  • Unique strategy RPG mechanic where you upgrade your team using skill points instead of classes.
  • Above average graphics and sound.
  • It’s a game worthy of the name.
CONS
  • If you didn’t like strategy RPGs before, you probably won’t like them now.
  • No demo, so make sure you try it out inside of the refund time.
  • Some bugs and crashes have been reported.
  • There’s a learning curve.
8.0

Overall, this is definitely something a little bit different. The high fantasy elements of elves and goblins are present and the mechanics are the familiar strategy RPG that most people know. That all contrasts nicely with the cyberpunk elements and customized character development. $6.99 may seem a tad expensive but this is a complete game and there are no in app purchases.

Baldurs Gate II Enhanced Edition makes its way to Android

Posted by wicked December - 18 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Beamdog has done it again. The game developers have successfully ported and launched the sequel to one of the most popular classic computer RPGs of all time, Baldur’s Gate II, in its enhanced and remastered form. Now gamers both old and new can get a chance to relive the good old days or forge new adventures using nothing more than the small but powerful computer hidden in their pockets. Of course, like in many games, a good adventure has a price to be paid.

Old school games, and by that we really mean older titles and not just new ones made to look old, can be a gold mine of experience for mobile gamers. These games bring depth and immersion in ways many newer smartphone games don’t offer. A solid story line, sophisticated game mechanics, and a lineage that spans decades. That’s what Beamdog and its ports bring to the Android table.

Like its predecessor, Baldur’s Gate II takes place in the Forgotten Realms setting of the acclaimed Dungeons and Dragons game world (AD&D 2 to be exact). You take the role of the sire of the God of Murder, bred solely to die at the hands of heroes, fueling the god’s return. But you were raised with love and were turned against your nature. Now it is up to you whether you will become the monster you were born to be or be the hero you were taught to be. It’s nurture vs. nature, RPG style.

BG2EE, as gamers would call it, covers the main Shadows of Amn campaign. But it also includes expansions such as Throne of Bhaal and The Black Pits II all for free. The game does cost $9.99, which in mobile game standards is quite steep, but the quality and experience might very well be worth the price. Some might be surprised that there are in-app purchases, but these are really just for additional content, like extra companions and character portraits.

Blizzard’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft now out for Android tablets

Posted by wicked December - 17 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

One big problem we all had with Blizzard’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft card game was first that it was only for tablets, and second that it was only out on iOS (so that meant the iPad or iPad mini) – so, “no, thanks”. Good thing that they understood how big a market there was for Android tablet users, that now the hugely popular card game is now out for Android tablet devices.

The rollout to Android tablets began in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, but is now available globally, as Blizzard has announced. The app will now be available globally via the Google Play Store, with a later rollout for the Amazon Appstore for Android.

Blizzard is putting out some bonus love for you early adapters as they will be giving out a pack of free “Classic” cards for you to use in game. To redeem your free pack of cards, you just need to complete a game of Hearthstone in any mode – be it on Play, Arena, or Practice mode, win or lose. Pretty nice, huh?

So if you have your Samsung Galaxy Tab S out, go give this one a go. It should be nice. Then tell us all about it in the comments section. You don’t own an Android tablet? No worries, Blizzard is also bringing the game to Android phones soon!
