On the other hand, you probably haven’t played an action 3D card battler – until now. Step forward, All Star Legion.

All Star Legion is a 3D QTE-based action RPG card battler, but fear not – the game itself isn’t as convoluted as its description.

You collect over thirty heroes to train and summon into battle with you, first deciding on the timing, combo, and sequence that your heroes will use their skills and then watch the battle takes place.

all-star-legion

Rather than just sit there and watch though, you’ll participate in QTEs to ensure the effectiveness of each attack – possibly even making them more powerful in the process.

There’s a similar system in play during enemy’s attacks as well. It’s a lot more challenging but you can actually interrupt an enemy’s attacks if you’re skilled at tap-timing.

Each hero has different strengths and weaknesses, and so are actually more and less effective against different opponents. As a result, it certainly pays to choose the right hero for the right occasion.

They begin with a star level between one and three but can eventually evolve into a five star hero – so be patient with less powerful heroes because they could grow to be your favorites.

Head on over to the App Store [download] or Google Play [download] to get All Star Legion right now for free.

Once you have your party, you’ll be ready to face the thirteen dungeons and their epic bosses. With your characters facing permadeath, will you be able to make it all the way to the final dungeon?

It’s a combination of all the previous releases in the series where you get all four acts (Blood on the Snow, Forest Hunt, The Shianti Halls, and Dawn over V’taag) of the gamebook saga for one price. Relive the story of Kai Lord of Sommerlund as he explores the world of Magnamundor or try it for the first time.

Like it or not, the “clicker” genre, popularized by cute distractions like Candy Box and Cookie Clicker, seems like it’s here to stay. So Who Wore it Best? takes a look at two recent examples: The Counting Dead and AdVenture Capitalist.

Tinytouchtales and Mexer have announced their new game, Card Crawl.

The game uses a mix of solitaire and deck-building mechanics to create a dungeon crawl. You’ll have 5 ability cards to work with as you explore a 54 card dungeon while slaying monsters, collecting gold, and finding helpful items. Gold can be used to buy better ability cards to give you more options when designing your tactics. Each game takes no more than 2-3 minutes, which means you can play it on the go.

Card Crawl will be $1.99 on the App Store when it’s released on March 12.

Well, BlastBall MAX is not one of those games and is bucking trends such as timers, elements of randomness, and tacked-on mechanics in favor of pure puzzle gameplay.

When you first boot up the game you’ll see a grid made up of squares that are each filled with four circle-shaped holes in it, and some of those holes will have yellow balls sitting in them.

blastball-max-148apps-1

Following me so far?

You have a selection of yellow balls of your own and you can place one at any point on the board.

The goal is to create a row of at least five balls, at which point the balls will be ‘blasted’, which removes the two outermost balls.

At this point the most interesting mechanic comes into play: the center ball changes color and takes on an entirely new ability that completely changes the dynamic of the game.

blastball-max-148apps-2

There are boosts there for those who are struggling, such as a ‘Multiplier Maximiser’ that increases your multiplier to the maximum if you blast a row with eight balls in it.

With over 90 missions to complete, the game is full to the brim with content and totally warrants the premium price tag. This is one puzzle game where it totally pays to, um, pay.

Follow the link to the App Store [download] to get started on your BlastBall Max adventure right now.

Like an angry union of Tiny Wings and Super Mega Worm, Rebel Twins’ new game Dragon Hills is lurking just around the corner.

The game is about a one-tap dragon of destruction that will leap from the ground, slide down hills, and crash though windmills, villages, knights, and anything else stupid enough to get in its way. You are the furious princess that controls the dragon, and you’re bent on revenge.

Check out the trailer for Dragon Hills below, which is coming out this spring.
