Slay your way to glory in idle RPG Endless Frontier

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 23rd, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It’s a golden age for idle games on the mobile market, and those addictive little clickers have a new best friend. South Korean developer Ekkorr released Endless Frontier last year, and players have been idling away the hours in the company of its heroes ever since.

It all starts with our hero Erin, who has vowed to defeat the Prince of Darkness, even if he has to die a million times in the process. Reincarnation is a beautiful thing…

You’re in charge of a band of fighters as they work through stages of enemies, each incrementally more difficult with the occasional boss thrown in. There are an impressive 1,500 stages, so this isn’t really a game you should aim to complete any time soon (the clue is in the name).

There are over a hundred heroes you can use in your cohort, from four different character types – humans, elves, orcs and the undead. The more you play and the higher your level, the more powerful the units available to you, and the further you can progress. Later on, you’ll even be able to farm pets to add offensive and defensive skills to your army.

Ekkorr consciously dispensed with the Gacha system, so you won’t be gambling away your hard earned resources or IRL cash for a tiny chance at unlocking some kind of legendary weapon or unit. Everything’s about upgrading existing units, instead, simplifying the RPG element of the game.

Endless Frontier also offers the chance to play one-on-one PvP, join guilds and battle with rival guilds in raids. Most idle games don’t worry too much about competition or the social aspect of online play, whereas Endless Frontier gives you the chance to make allies and challenge your heroes beyond the standard stages.

If you like the sound of an idle game with exciting fantasy battles, then why not download Endless Frontier for free from Google Play or the App Store.

Collect pets and sling arrows in Arcane Online’s latest update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on January 23rd, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Mobile gaming is a crowded market, but regular updates are a good way to keep us attention-short players keen. The brand new content in Arcane Online is a prime example.

Published by Japanese developer Gala, Arcane Online is a fantasy MMO that tasks you with saving the land of Eldine from monsters (and humans, too). All the hallmarks of the modern mobile RPG are here to keep you entertained – quests to complete, guilds to join, characters to customise and loot to win.

The update features a fun new buddy system, making battle more nuanced. You can collect and raise 28 different familiars, from roosters to mimics, and summon them during combat. Buddies have active and passive skills to aid you. You can even name them – take on the forces of darkness with Fido and Snowball at your side.

There’s an additional character class, too. You can fight alongside mages, warriors and shamans as usual, but also as a formidable archer, slinging arrows at anything in your way.

Plus there’s a new guild vs. guild event called Dominion Wars. Up to twenty players on each side battle for control of six different territories in Eldine, with the winners reaping the rewards.

Sound like fun? If you’d like to give it a try you can download Arcane Online for free from the App Store and Google Play.

3 Reasons GoNNER is a Must-Download Game this Holiday

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 30th, 2016



Developed by Art in Heart, a studio founded by programmer, game designer, and artist Ditto, GoNNER is a procedurally-generated platformer featuring a skull-headed protagonist named Ikk. Now available to download on NVIDIA SHIELD, the game is one of the most charming and enjoyable indie titles of the year. Here are three key reasons why you don’t want to miss out on GoNNER..

An Imaginative Indie Adventure and Premise

Over the years, heroes have embarked on harrowing quests for any number of reasons. They've saved princesses and realms, searched for spectacular treasure, sought life in the aftermath of a tragic apocalypse, and fended off alien invasions, just for starters. Ikk has a slightly different goal. His good friend Sally, a whale who is somehow stuck on land, could really use some cheering up. Ikk figures he can accomplish that task by venturing into the mysterious caverns nearby and retrieving delightful trinkets.

On his journey, Ikk will encounter a variety of environments and master spectacular abilities that improve his chances at survival in the treacherous caverns. There are boss battles to look forward to, as well as hidden secrets and multiple endings, in the event that you successfully help Ikk reach the end of his quest.

Procedurally-Generated Action

Like many other games that make difficulty and procedurally-generated level design key components of their design, GoNNER plays out with rogue-like mechanics. A trip through the game is a "run," and you're not likely to persevere on the first attempt. Instead, you can learn from your mistakes and start over as necessary, armed with fresh knowledge and even improved gear that slightly improves your chances at eventual success.

In addition to artistic visuals and challenging design, GoNNER features a satisfying scoring system for competitive players to master. You can simply work to survive, killing the denizens of darkness in whatever manner proves most convenient, or you can work to score combos that secure you a top score and a prime spot on the leaderboards. Surviving in style is much better than doing so by the skin of your teeth.

Its Visual Aesthetic Shines on NVIDIA SHIELD
Featuring a vibrant art style in everything from the procedurally generated worlds you explore to the creatures you’ll cross paths with, GoNNER boasts striking art direction that leaves a lasting impression and really brings the gameplay experience to life. Its pastel colored settings and characters are also sharply contrasted by the darkness that surrounds you. And despite its minimalistic design, the game looks great on NVIDIA SHIELD.

GoNNER is available now on the SHIELD Android TV for $6.69. If you've been wondering what adventure can challenge your elite skills next, you should definitely add this game to your collection.

How To Maximize Your Amazon Digital Day Savings

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 25th, 2016



Don’t miss great savings coming December 30th with Amazon Digital Day. The event
will offer Android users discounts of up to 50% off and deals that include a wide
selection Dollar Deals items priced at $0.99 or less on the best digital content around. If
you own an Android smartphone, Fire tablet, Kindle, or Amazon Fire TV, you should
start counting down the days until December 30th.

For now, we’re sharing tips to help you get the most out of your upcoming Digital Day shopping spree. Follow our gameplan and you’ll not only save money but end up with an Android device bursting with exciting games, movies, music, and books.

Prepare Your Device

With over a thousand discounts and deals on tap, chances are good that you’ll find
multiple items that you’ll want to download. If you scored a new Fire tablet or
smartphone for the holidays, you probably have tons of space to spare, so keep it that
way: you don’t want to run out of storage space mid-event. If you’re a longtime Android
user, now’s the time to give your device a spring cleaning and free up some space for all
the cool stuff you’re going to buy.

If you’re a Kindle, Fire tablet or Fire TV user, the only thing you have to do from there is
navigate to amazon.com/digitalday on December 30th and grab what you want.

Amazon customers who own a non-Amazon Android device just need to download the
Amazon app and enter your account login.

Check Amazon’s Recommendations

Amazon will feature a selected list of the top items from 2016. Every title carries at 4+ star rating as reviewed by actual customers, so you won’t end up buying something less than stellar. Look at each Digital Day category page, such as Family Time, Pass the Popcorn, and Dollars Deals, for more selections as well.

Take a Chance on Something New

Many of you will use Digital Day to double down on the things you already love like
items for your favorite game and a digital copy of a beloved movie. But Digital Day is
also a great opportunity to experience something you normally wouldn’t try. Say you
play action games, but you see a hit puzzle title being offered as a Dollar Deal.
If the reviews and star rating look good, why not give it a shot? Chances are, the game is
a killer value even at regular price, so getting it for $0.99 or below could be a worthwhile
purchase. The same goes for movies, albums, and eBooks: a big discount can be a
great enticement to try something new.

Let The Whole Family in on The Fun

Digital Day will have savings on items for families, so consider getting together to pick
items that you can all share. The young gamer in your home could choose something
related to a game they can enjoy, such as Dr. Panda Ice Cream Truck, or help choose a
movie for an upcoming family movie night! Parents will also find plenty of audio- and
eBooks to add to the family’s digital library for reading time as well as tunes to amp up
the shared family music collection. As our homes get more connected, events like Digital
Day can be a great way to provide wholesome, quality entertainment that everyone can
access and enjoy!

We hope these tips help you get the most out of Amazon Digital Day on December
30th. Remember to check amazon.com/digitalday for details, download the Amazon app to your device in advance, and most importantly, have fun!

Initially released in November last year, the game hit the ground running and proved to be a big hit. Sitting proudly at the top of Google Play’s top free arcade games in its first month of release, as well as raking in the top 5 in 3 more “top free games” lists, Dulp earned itself achievement after achievement.

While the premise is pretty simple – observe the pattern of the individual rings, and carefully fire missiles to destroy the rotating wheel, it’s not stopped the devs from jamming in loads more cool features.

Jump into the endless game mode and play to your hearts content with an extra 120 shiny new ones to beat. It’s not all just about adding more levels and entertainment though as the developers have also looked to make the game more accessible for everyone with a new colour blind setting so that those of you who suffer from the condition won’t have to miss out on the fun.

But by no means did the devs stop there. In the newest version of the game you’ll also see a brand new UI design, an updated gameplay and colour scheme, improved general optimization, and fixtures to minor bugs in the original version.

MU Origin gets a brand new holiday-themed update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 20th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The weather outside is frightful, and unfortunately so is the slew of “Christmas” updates. Sure enough there’s one or two that hit the mark but then there are the ones that we’d rather have stayed under the tree.

Fortunately for all you fans of fantasy adventure, MU Origin (the popular MMORPG hit) has just received a Christmas update that’s worthy of the festive season.

The new “Companion and Wings” update does exactly what the name suggests, bringing both a new companion system and a new means of spreading those wings a little more with Roch and Griffin souls.
The new companion system allows you to form an alliance with another player - growing and gaining strength in battle through special companion activities such as the Companion Dungeon. Companionships can be formed between any classes of character and offers the added perk of picking up Companion Buffs.

It’s not just Companion Buff that’s on offer though. The new Roch and Griffin souls will enable players with Tier 6 wings or above to unlock their Wings full potential. On top of that, the update brings a cool new feature called Transmutation, where you can upgrade your equipment to lengths far beyond its original Tier would allow.

And in the season of good will, Webzen have a nice treat in store for you all in its latest event, starting today and ending on the 31st December. During this period, any player that logs in and plays the game will earn themselves a bounty of new items, including Condors Feather, Condor’s Flame, and Gold Spark.

MU Origin is available to download right now for free from the App Store and Google Play.

Roll Up, Roll Up! Game of Dice has just got a brand new winter update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 16th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Great news for all you Game of Dice fans, because JoyCity have just released a brand new winter update.
In this wintery twist on the much loved game, you’ll have to battle against your mates to become the boss of the virtual board, and bankrupt your fellow players in the process.

In the latest update the good people over at JoyCity have treated us to a seasonal upgrade, jammed full of cool and exciting features that’re sure keep players of all ages entertained for hours.

Get ready to explore the brand new 1:1 Crystal Village map, and take your competitiveness to a whole new levels. Race again your mates to complete the circuit 4 times to activate the much coveted glacial crystal to hike up the tolls on your property – making you richer and way more powerful than your lowly competitors.

Just make sure you watch your step and look out for frozen city blocks, because landing on one will end in disaster. Try to avoid the icy tiles if you want to stay on top form, as stepping on one of these bad boys will freeze everything you own, and make them impossible to land on – meaning you won’t be able to collect your tolls.

But by no means does the fun end there, as the winter update also brings with it a brand new character. Play as “Wintery Mary” and make your way around the board with the help of her special skill, but make sure you use it wisely as it’s only good for 1 use.

There’s so much to look forward to with this game, including the consecutive mission feature that rewards every 5-10 consecutive match wins with rewards like gold, and different skill packs. With so much crammed into the app, it’s looking very likely that Game of Dice’s winter update will be just as big as its predecessors.

Game of Dice is available to download for Android and iOS.

Players can tailor a control scheme unique to themselves with three layout options on offer. Be it virtual stick, conventional motion or on-screen D-pad inputs, War Wings allows anyone to become an ace pilot, but it’s up to them how they get there.

Why not tinkle those digital ivories this Christmas? Note Fighter is available for iOS and Android. The free version includes 9 songs, whilst the premium version features 18 songs.

Winter comes to Darkwood as Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery receives Christmas update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 8th, 2016
+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

MyTona, based in the chilly Siberian city of Yakutsk, has brought a little festive fun to its hidden object game Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery. The Christmas update introduces some new inhabitants to players, and with them a chance to win plenty of bonus items.

Gameplay for Seekers Notes follows the tried and tested formula of hidden object games – you investigate locations for clues in order to solve mysteries. This time, the location is Darkwood, a charming city beset by a strange curse. You navigate around 28 detailed areas, talking to the locals and spotting objects to solve puzzles, all with a view to lifting the spell. You’re against the clock, so you have to work fast to spot everything you need in each location.

There are an impressive 1200 quests to tackle, and 222 collections to find. If you end up befuddled by a particular puzzle, ask a friend via social media to help. Fellow ‘seekers’ can leave help including items in your game to give you a hand, and by doing so boost your research reward once you solve the puzzle.

The Christmas update has given a seasonal makeover to Darkwood, with festive decorations now adorning the quaint corners and charming buildings of the city. But there are also some new characters that have migrated here for the winter, including Sir Tubby the evil snowman and the Ice Queen. You can banish these unpleasant characters and by doing so win items including fixers (used to combine your collections), candy, toys and other seasonal bonuses. The characters will be gone as soon as the event is over and the snow has all gone, so be quick!

Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery is free to download from the App Store, Google Play, Windows Store, and Amazon Appstore.
