HyperDevBox new JRPG is called Record of Agarest War Zero

Posted by wicked October - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Same time last year, HyperDevBox released the Record of Agarest War tactical RPG. One year later, the developer is releasing another version: the Record of Agarest Zero. It’s a new game for Android users who are into Japanese-style RPGs.

The game is priced at $14.99 in the US but for a limited time, HyperDevBox is listing it with a special introductory price of $8.99. It’s still pricey but I’m pretty sure there are Android gamers who would download the paid app. The game is popular in home video game consoles but it’s now ready to run on the Android platform.

The Record of Agarest Zero is set in the ancient times, long before the Record of Agarest War happened. The battle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness has long been going on. Centuries have passed and yet the conflict is still there between the nations. In attempt to put an end to war, the generals of the armies light sent out Sieghart. He’s the loyal servant believed to change the course of war. His mission is to gather components of a magical tool that will free the imprisoned blacksmith of the gods. The blacksmith must be freed because he’s the only one who can make magical artifacts to use for battle.

HyperDevBox has already released a number of Japanese games for Android. This game promises a lot of new things: more than 100 hours of gameplay packed in 1.GB of data, full 720p HD graphics, enhanced battle system, full touch interface support, as well as, Leaderboards and Achievements support. The game is also Xperia Play optimized and is compatible with MOGA controllers. As for gameplay, fans can expect full voice acted in Japanese, “Living Portraits” animated characters, Soul-Breeding System, and the Card Skill System that lets you customize your character’s weapon and skills.

To make the RPG more exciting, there’s the Fell Link feature that lets gamers the chance to unlock and change character costumes. There are also more than 400 enemies and characters and 50 different battle skills and magic spells. If you still have a lot of power, capture monsters to join your army.

If you’ve previously paid for the Record of Agarest War, you can also unlock the original game to include your characters and maps on this version.

Caverns of the Snow Witch is a new Fighting Fantasy adventure

Posted by wicked October - 16 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

This is definitely not the Snow Queen in that animated film with the ubiquitous song. The newest adaptation of the Fighting Fantasy game is Caverns of the Snow Witch and your goal is to take over the mission from a trapper who dies in your arms and that is to defeat the wicked witch. It’s a straight-up RPG gamebook but this time in mobile format, from the same developers that brought you Appointment with F.E.A.R, another Fighting Fantasy adaptation.

The game is based on a single-player roleplaying gamebook by Ian Livingstone, a legend in the gaming (desktop and video) world. They based most of the visuals on this as well, even retaining the retro 80s feel in some parts. Even the famous (well, famous for that community) cover by Les Edwards from the gamebook is also adapted into the game. Your mission is basically to stop the evil Snow Witch from bringing the earth to another ice age. You need to go through the Crystal Caves of Icefinger Mountains (we’re betting it’s cold there) to confront the coldest woman of them all.

The digital gamebook features beautiful visuals whose pages can be turned, just like you would a real book, with the option of reading it vertically or horizontally. When it comes to the dice-rolling, it uses a physics-based system. You also get an Automated Adventure sheet so you can track your progress easily. And unlike when you play the gamebook non-digitally (well, unless you have your music player turned on), with the app you get beautiful background music while playing. And because the artwork is gorgeous, you can access them through a gallery and maybe use one as your screensaver or wallpaper.

The developers said they will also be bringing other Fighting Fantasy gamebooks to the digital world, so if you’re into that sort of thing, this is something to look forward to, given their track record with past adaptations. But for now,try out Caverns of the Snow Witch, available for download from the Google Play Store for only $5.99. It might seem pretty steep compared to other games (and the others shoot guns and blast spaceships), but RPG gamebook fans would probably say it’s worth it.

Weapons throwing RPG game is what its name says it is

Posted by wicked October - 7 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

When the developers of one of the newest Android games were thinking of what to name their mobile game, they probably concluded “Heck, why come up with a complicated name when you could just easily have something that is self-explanatory?” Hence, the birth of Weapons throwing RPG (okay, we were just imagining the thought process that went into naming the game, but it works right?) which is exactly what its name suggests it is.

Simply put, the game is all about throwing your weapons at the enemy and trying to avoid being hit by the weapons they throw back at you. Sounds simple enough right? And it is, but what makes it stand out in this age of modern and high-tech graphics and animation is that it actually looks old school, like an anime show you would watch in the early 90s during the 16-bit era. Not to say that it’s too simplistic or anything. In fact if you look at it closely, the animation is very detailed and stylish.

You can choose to be one of six characters with different abilities who throw weapons at the enemies who threaten the peace of Yusdaril, an island paradise in the sky. You also get to enlist the help of Combat Pets who will fight alongside you. You get to choose which weapon you want to chuck at the villains, but you have to be careful not to run out of them in every level. You also get cool tools like turning invisible in order to escape the weapons from your enemies.

Weapons throwing RPG can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. There are some in-app purchases ranging from $0.99 to $9.99 so just a reminder to enable (or rather, disable) purchasing powers if someone else will be playing the game on your device.

Ingress AR game adding ‘Missions’ as side-quests for players

Posted by wicked September - 26 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Ingress is a very different type of mobile game in that it doesn’t have angry or flappy birds, bad piggies, or even your novel retro 8-bit graphics – and yet it has managed to capture a modest but staunchly loyal fan and player base. Ingress is an augmented reality (AR) game where doing things in the real world – like travelling to places – gains you points and experience in the mobile game.

For a while there, Ingress was all the rage – coming out of closed beta and making the game available for all. The game hinges around the players’ control over an element called XM (Exotic Matter), and the game overlays itself on real-world maps. The goal is to put up “portals” around these XM – usually located in major landmarks and public locations. Two factions fight over these territories – players get to choose one – and portals increase your controlled territory.

The Android app – apart from showing the map overlay – lets players communicate with each other. As the developers have recently announced, a new element for Ingress will roll out soon, and it is called “Missions”. This new addition will feature like “side quests” which will be familiar to most RPG gamers. Players are asked to visit a series of places and complete game actions to gain in-game advantages. For this feature, Ingress is using the dataset from a hugely popular location-based app called “Field Trip” – so players will need to expect trips to locations which are connected to history, art, architecture, outdoor activities, shopping, dining, and the like.

Will this continue to boost Ingress’s playability and keep its players from being bored? Most likely. Gamers usually take to side-quests with a lot of zeal and bravado, so you can expect this feature to be nice and popular. Will it make you want to play the game though, if you have not been playing it? That really depends if you are convinced that this is your idea of fun. But if its, then this is all good, right?

Oculus producing a game for Samsung Gear VR

Posted by wicked September - 22 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

It’s funny (not funny) how “virtual reality” hasn’t really gained momentum from the heady days of the 90s where everyone was excited about the technology until today where it’s still an obvious bystander to mainstream tech. That said, Samsung is set to splurge some of their well-earned smartphone profit on the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus is set to launch a game created especially for the Gear VR.

The game is tentatively named VR Quest, and according to Oculus, it will be a mobile dungeon crawler game in the classic RPG mold. John Carmack, chief technology officier at Oculus, says that the game is “Zelda-esque”, harping back to memories of the Nintendo gaming classic Legend of Zelda. We suppose we should take that with a grain of salt, but only time will tell if it will really be that good.

There is no information yet as to the ship date of the game, as Samsung is just getting around to launching the Gear VR. There is no clear launch date for the Gear VR device, but rumors are pointing to the release before the year ends.

Would you buy a Samsung Gear VR? Honestly, we can’t see the viability of the device except as a specialized entertainment platform. The technology is certainly impressive, and we love Oculus to bits. Let’s see if the hype catches on, there is not long to wait on this it seems.

Foursaken’s Phantom Rift is another turn-based RPG for Android

Posted by wicked September - 13 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Foursaken Media, an all-sibling outfit which brought you the mildly addictive Block Fortress on iOS, now tries its hand at Android RPG gaming with Phantom Rift, a turn-based grid-driven RPG that would be as at home on your Gameboy Advance as on your Android device. The game is loosely based on the Mega Man Battle Net, a grid-based action game on the aforementioned legacy console.

In the game, all character battles take place on a 6-by-3 grid. The gameplay is a hodgepodge of elements from other fantasy-based action and RPGs – you basically have a set of spells which you can use at in any given battle. In game, there are over 300 spells you can use, so that makes for a lot of variety and less boredom, or so we hope.

phantom_rift1

When your character is not battling around, you explore the grid universe around you and like any RPG worth its salt, the environment is filled with loot for your collection. The game allows for lots of equipment on your character, so we can be sure you’ll at least have fun collecting loot.

The game comes with a multiplayer element and also supports gameplay with the NVIDIA Shield console. The game costs USD$2.99, and despite the description saying that there will be in-app purchases, Foursaken Media’s track record is otherwise good in this sense – you will surely enjoy the game even without spending more money. Check out the source link.

Kemco’s latest Android JRPG: Illusion of L’Phalcia

Posted by wicked September - 12 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Gameloft might have the Android casual gaming market down, but when it comes to JRPGs (that aren’t established titles ported to mobile), perhaps no other name has more weight than Kemco, who has literally dozens of such titles in its roster. Now it’s adding one more to that with Illusion of L’Phalcia, a game that mixes 2D and 3D into one.

The plot of the game is quite simple, though it might still appeal to some JRPG fans. At the heart of the story is the Sword of Amal, a mythical sword that is said to grant any wish. Naturally, our hero, Ryser, wants to get his hands on it. And naturally, too, there are other people who want to have their wishes come true, though what those wishes are will only be revealed through the course of the game. And some of those might help you while others have their own plans. Amusingly, you have a partner/pet, a literal cougar named Cougar, who seems to be drawn like a well-aged female of the species. Draw your own conclusions from that.

illusion-of-l-phalcia-3_1
illusion-of-l-phalcia-4_1
illusion-of-l-phalcia-5_1
illusion-of-l-phalcia-6_1

What potentially sets Illusion of L’Phalcia apart is how it blends two visual conventions. The game plays out in a traditional, top-down 2D view that resembles games of old (or modern retro games). However, once battles ensue, you are switched to a fuller 3D arena, complete with over the top effects and graphics. In the words of Kemco itself, “Overwhelm your enemies with beautifully animated skills and magic,” This convention isn’t exactly new, but it’s not that common on Android either. Battles are turn-based but Kemco has this “smart auto battle” feature that lets an AI take over for you. That is, if you trust it that much.

Illusion of L’Phalcia is now up on Google Play Store. Strangely, perhaps due to the heavier graphics and development involved, it costs more than Kemco’s usual games. Fortunately for those interested in grabbing it. it is on a 56% discount for now, with a price tag of $3.99. Kemco hasn’t indicated when it will go back to its normal $8.99.

Original Dragon Quest now ported to Android by Square Enix

Posted by wicked September - 12 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

To those of you (those of US!) who played the original 1986 Dragon Quest on your NES before, Square Enix has just dropped a whole nostalgia package on us by bringing the Dragon Quest that started it all now to Android.

If you remember your Japanese RPGs correctly, Dragon Quest was actually released by Enix as “Dragon Warrior” in the US although we have no idea why that decision was made. This was launched in the same time that Squaresoft was pushing with Final Fantasy as well – but unlike Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest stuck with a consistent RPG world and recurring characters, allowing gamers to fall in love with the same anime-driven characterizations.

dragonquest_android_1

The Android port keeps all these elements, barring some minor art re-designs here and there. It also keeps the orientation vertical – giving a nod to your Nintendo Gameboy gaming days. That is, having a TV type display on top of what probably will be virtual controls.

dragonquest_android_2

The app is a paid download via the Google Play Store, and you will have to pay USD$2.99 for the nostalgia hit. Android is host to a lot of these old RPGs coming back to life as ported apps – even Dragon Quest IV and Dragon Quest VIII. Make sure to tell us about it if you decide to give the original Dragon Quest a try.

Backflip Studios try to bring D&D gameplay to mobile

Posted by wicked September - 2 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

We all know it’s futile, trying to recreate tabletop RPG gaming classic Dungeons and Dragons on digital media. There are just some “open play/open world” aspects to D&D that will just not translate to digital. But Backflip Studios is going to give it a try, at least to capture some essence of the decades-old game.

Backflip should know that it has been tried before, a lot of people have tried to do just that, and they’ve crashed and burned. Gamers usually come with the tabletop-like gaming expectations and end up with a crappy alternative. So Backflip Studios have a lot of history to build on. Try to go through the “game in the making” video they released below.

Backflip, developers of DragonVale, are giving this a try, from what the video shows. On evidence, it looks far from the classic D&D RPG. There is hope though, as the outfit attempts to get at least one of the game’s key elements – that players will be able to create or modify the game world that they’re playing in, a huge aspect of tabletop D&D gaming. But aside from the video, nothing’s been confirmed.

Because of the troubles of bringing D&D to digital gaming, a totally new genre of RPGs was born – this was the line that gave us Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, Oblivion and more recently, Skyrim. It would be good to remember that these magnificent classics were spawned out of the difficulties of bringing real, creative, tabletop D&D to digital. Will Backflip Studios’ “mobile” D&D make it big with gamers? Tell us what you think.
