By Campbell Bird on July 26th, 2017

The Lion's Song review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: VIENNA VENTURE
The Lion's Song isn't the strongest adventure game out there, but it is certainly one of the most uniquely interesting ones.


A Planet of Mine review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 21st, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: CIRCULAR CIVILIZATION
This strategy game does a poor job of explaining itself, but is otherwise a great 4X-style experience.

Knight Fever is a new take on the classic RPG, now on Android

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 27th, 2017

Knight Fever lands on the Google Play, and you won’t want to miss it if you’re a devoted RPG fan. Developed by indie creatives Buff Studios, the game looks like a retro RPG with some exciting new twists.

While it may look familiar in all of its pixelated glory, Knight Fever foregoes turn-based battles for an interesting lane-based system. Upon entering combat, you’ll be presented with four lanes, each occupied by one of your heroes. You’ll need to ensure that the battle goes well in each lane if you want to get out of the fight alive. It’s certainly a more action-packed take on the usual RPG mechanics.

Knight Fever’s full launch also introduces the Gold Dungeon. Adventurers who complete this special area earn generous amounts of gold to be spent at the General Shops and the Peddler. It’s a great way to earn experience and save for that superior equipment you’ve been coveting.

You’ll also have access to the Hero’s Altar, which gives you more daily freebies, including summons, crafting materials, Heroes, and more.

Publisher WEBZEN is getting in on the launch day fun, too, by releasing a Knight Fever animated short that you can watch right now. [link]

You can now play Knight Fever for free on Google Play.
