Rise of Vigil Expansion Released for Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer

Our Rating: ★★★★½ :: COLLECT THIS :: Read Review »

Playdek and Stone Blade Entertainment have released Rise of Vigil – an in-app expansion for the iOS card game Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer. The expansion adds a new energy shard mechanic, which gives players the ability to upgrade heroes, monsters, and constructs. This changes the dynamic of certain cards; making weaker ones potentially much more powerful.

Rise of Vigil also includes 46 new center deck cards; including 11 new Monster cards, 24 new Hero cards, 11 new Construct cards, and new starting deck art as well as new background theme art and music.

Joel Goodman, CEO of Playdek says,  “We’re excited to release this new expansion to the popular Ascension series and we thank fans for waiting. The new energy shard cards energize the gameplay by making players rethink old strategies.”

You can download Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer for free, and purchase the Rise of Vigil in-game update for $3.99.

Finnish developer Boomlagoon has released a teaser trailer of their forthcoming side-scrolling action platformer, Monsu.

Looking like a pretty cute auto-runner, Monsu has another trick up its sleeve, courtesy of the many cards that you can collect as you play.

Coming from some of the minds behind Angry Birds, there will be dozens of customizable characters to get to know, with the hope that Monsu is more character-driven than most running platformers.

A series of online tournaments besides the rich single-player world should ensure there’s plenty of fun to be had when Monsu arrives on the App Store later this summer.

Check out the trailer below to see just what to expect very soon!

Things have changed in Berk, the fantasy Viking village of DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon series. Dragons and Vikings, once mortal enemies, now must learn to live together in peace. Dragons: Rise of Berk lets players manage dragon-Viking relations first hand, and here are some tips for keeping everyone happy and prosperous.

Reign of Fire

Obviously, dragons play a pretty big role in a game named after them, and they’re good for much more than just flying and fire-breathing. Here’s how to put them to work.

  • To get started, level up Toothless by feeding him tasty fish. Once he’s strong enough, you can then send him out to search nearby islands for more dragons eggs. Get a Whispering Death on Bashem or maybe a Scauldron on Unlandable Cove.
  • After hatching an egg, place your new baby dragon wherever there is room and feed them until they level up and reach adult size. You can also train dragons by sending them to the academy for a few minutes.
  • Adult dragons can independently perform many tasks around Berk, and as they grow they learn new skills such as how to gather resources like fish and lumber. Having more dragons at your command also increases Berk’s ability to expand.
  • As you progress, tons of new dragon breeds become available to search for, including some limited time offers. Also, by helping characters from the movies their personal dragons, like Astrid’s Stormfly, can be yours.

  • Cowabunga! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run Is Currently Free

    Our Rating: ★★½☆☆ :: NOT EASY BEING GREEN :: Read Review »

    Presumably due to the forthcoming movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is free on the App Store at the moment.

    The game allows you to control your favorite turtle as he runs, jumps, fights, and drives his way through New York’s endless landscape.

    We weren’t too keen on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run when it first came out, mostly because there was a ton of grinding to it. However, as it’s gone free for a limited time this might be just the right time for you to see if you agree with us.

    We’re not sure how long it’s on sale for, so we’d suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.

    Lots of New Modes Have Been Added to Canabalt

    Posted by on July 23rd, 2014
    + Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

    A mere month after Canabalt was updated for the first time in over two years, it’s been updated again! That’s speedy!

    The update brings with it eight new game modes, new leaderboards for each of those, two-player modes, plus 16 additional achievements.

    The new modes change up the tried and tested formula with challenges such as alien ships coming at you, invisible buildings, and the rather risky Defenestration requiring you to throw yourself through windows. For the more cautious gamer, there’s also the addition of the Purity mode in which there aren’t any obstacles at all.

    Don’t forget the fun of two player local multiplayer too!

    The update for Canabalt is out now and the game is priced at $2.99.
