Fancy your chances as an intergalactic space pirate of sorts? Want to live out that fantasy on the go? Well, then Rogue Universe for iOS and Android might just be the game for you. And, with its global release set for the first half of 2019, you won’t have to wait too long to start playing.
At its core, it’s a space-based strategy MMO that takes aesthetic inspiration from the world of comic books. The basic gameplay loop entails undertaking missions, gaining rare resources, constructing ships, and slowly forming relationships/rivalries with the game’s 3 main factions: the Zurich Bank, U.N.S., and the Black Flag.
Along the way, you’ll need to decide who exactly you want to help out and work worth. But every decision has its consequences, and opting to stick with one faction could end up impacting your standing with the others. Perhaps the ultimate goal of any ambitious space pirate/budding warlord should be a complete universal takeover, and, thankfully, Rogue Universe is all too happy for you to give it a shot.
Final Blade is an epic fantasy RPG that revolves around two warring nations and one extremely powerful sword. Having already found great success in Taiwan and South Korea, the developer is now bringing its acclaimed free-to-play iOS and Android title to the west. Pre-registration is open for those of you who want to get in as early as possible and maybe even earn yourself some exclusive goodies.
For those not in the know, the game contains many of the classic RPG elements that we expect and love, such as a deep levelling system, tons of lovely loot, and powerful skills that allow players to utilise their characters in new and exciting ways. And you’re certainly going to need all those skills at your disposal, as enemies have a tendency to be pretty darn tricky.
Delving into the rich backstories of the cast is one of the highlights here, as is uncovering the painstakingly detailed fantasy world that the dev team has put together. Another real point of pride for Final Blade is just how extensive and replayable an experience it is. With an adventure mode, daily dungeons, and insanely powerful raid bosses, there’s a ton of great stuff to sink your teeth into.
On top of that, the online arena and clan wars – which pit players against one another in intense battles – are sure to keep the more hardcore among us busy. Final Blade also boasts extremely detailed and colourful visuals, with some especially impressive character designs to boot.
In terms of the pre-registration gifts, you can expect a nice bundle of gold and in-game items. However, the biggest incentive is definitely the 5-star hero selection ticket, which is sure to give you the edge once the game launches. And, in a cool little twist, the more players that register, the most gifts everyone will get.
Langrisser Mobile is set to finally break the revolutionary TRPG franchise's 20 year silence when it finally makes its way to touchscreens the world over at the end of the month.
The original Langrisser game (known as Warsong in the west) debuted on the Sega Mega Drive in 1991 and went on to spawn sequels on SNES, PC, Sega Saturn and PlayStation 2. However, none of those sequels ever received an offical release outside of Japan, so for many western gamers Langrisser has remained an unknown entity. Until now...
Set to land on iOS and Android devices on 22nd January, Langrisser Mobile is a pocketable spinoff that aims to bring an uncompromised TRPG experience to the palm of your hand. Here’s why fans should be pumped-up about its arrival on phones and tablets.
Fans of base builders rejoice! The hugely ambitious Fleets of Heroes has landed on Google Play to shake up the competition with its revised take on the popular genre, and developer Inner Hero also has an all-new mode in the works.
The game, first released on the App Store, has made quite the splash recently. For those not in the know, Fleets of Heroes offers all of the base building mechanics and ideas that we know and love while also bringing intense PvP, cross-platform battle and trading, and a unique approach to combat where players can assume direct control of hero ships.
What sets the combat apart really is those hero ships. These massively powerful units offer their own unique skills and abilities, allowing you to get the edge over any opponent if you’re smart about it. Of course, the AI units can also be directed, but the hero ships grant the game a more tactical edge.
Taking place in a vast and ruthless galaxy, Fleets of Heroes for iOS is a highly ambitious base builder that looks to shake up the genre while simultaneously being one of the most compelling games of its type.
Developer Inner Hero has spent some time looking at other base builders to determine exactly what works and what doesn’t. So the game is perhaps best described as a revised take on the genre, where classic mechanics are instilled with thrilling new force.
Like any good base builder, you’ll be spending your time unlocking, building, and upgrading multiple structures that all have their own unique purpose, such as development, resource, and defence buildings.
This one also demands some amount of forethought and strategy as you attempt to successfully connect all developed buildings to the power grid for optimal results. Designing the ultimate base might be a sizeable challenge itself, but let’s not forget that you’re also going to have to defend it – perhaps by use of a few turrets or traps?
Space battles are fast and furious, demanding strategic choices be made as you go. You’ll often have to decide which of the hero ships are best suited to your situation, and – when used effectively – these ships can be controlled to alter the course of battle entirely.
And for those of you who love to customize and play around with abilities, upgrades, and loadouts with millions of potential setups, Fleets of Heroes absolutely has you covered. Oh, and if your base is starting to feel a little lonely, there’s the option to relocate to another site in a completely different part of the galaxy.
The game also features a robust trading system that allows you to buy and sell resources with anyone, anywhere. Of course, you’ll be able to ally with other players by joining their federation or creating your own. PvP is a great way to play, and – thankfully – you’ll get to keep your well-earned resources even if you lose. And with weekly tournaments, there are always plenty of reasons to keep coming back for more.
Be sure to try the game right away, because, for the first 7 days (until December 27th), you can also get for free a promo booster pack of resources and equipment, with a value of more than $2.00.
So if Fleets of Heroes sounds like your type of out of this world delight, you can nab it over on the App Store for free.

While it can sometimes seem like we are drowning in a sea of battle royale games, few struggle to actually deliver the kind of fun and frantic experience you’d expect from a refined entry in the genre. Well step aside from those other games because Munchkin.io continues to go from strength to strength, by adding a new character class and also being named by Google as one of the best indie games of the year and being globally featured in the Google Play Store starting from today.

Developed by a team of creators who are equally annoyed, the game is now in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign which could benefit from your backing. Here’s what’s in store if you do.

Rift of Raigard features a wholly original, interwoven story that will see you venture through multiple exotic landscapes in any one of the game’s three explorable continents.
Rift of Raigard will encourage you to personalize your central hero, ground troops, and base thanks to the large number of customisation options. All three facets mentioned can be personalised with a slew of in-game skins, meaning you’ll be spurred to protect your armaments in the battle to hold back enemies strategically in real-time. The best Rift of Raigard players will find themselves vying for a space at the top of the leader board.
Should the game reach its funding goal, Rift of Raigard will also include a dedicated guild system that lets players team up, sponsored events and leagues, alongside what the developer Dun Rite Games is teasing as “game modes never before seen in this genre.”
The good news is that you can also be part of this adventure. Be sure to visit the game’s Kickstarter page to show your support, for a mobile-first RTS game that wants to be fun and accessible for all while clamping down on cheaters.

The story so far...
Five gods built the world of Hermes, but it didn't take long before they were squabbling with each other ownership. After a war between them nearly frazzled the land to bits, the gods thought it wise to lock themselves in magical objects called Soul Stones, where they could do no more harm. Unfortunately, their minion factions continued the fight. They began seeking the Soul Stones in an effort to wield godly powers against their rivals, at the risk of destroying Hermes in the process. Up pops the Albion Knights, dedicated to finding and destroying the Soul Stones to keep the world safe. And who should be within the order's ranks but you, ready to save the day.
