3D ARPG Dynasty of Dungeons is soon to be released in Europe, North America, and Australasia – and will be free to download.

The game allows you to take on the role of the ‘Overlord’, an anti-hero who lives in a destroyed world. You are then tasked with fighting your way through regions of the game world to claim each region for your own – and ultimately follow the storyline to its natural conclusion, conquering the world.

You fight battles in Dynasty of Dungeons by having two distinct ways to control the outcome. Firstly, you choose the positions of their heroes, with some – as you’d expect – having advantages over the other characters in the form of their attack range or defensive capabilities.

Second is how you can build up ‘mana’ to unleash a more powerful attack on your enemy, where an attack may deal more damage, damage all opponents, or heal one of your allies.

Dynasty 2
The gameplay has a significant amount of depth then, but developer Playcrab is also keen to highlight how the universe and story of Dynasty of Dungeons is bought to life through the 3D visuals. There’s a huge range unique animations for each heroes’ actions.

You can see it all for yourself very soon though, with the game arriving on the App Store on November the 27 – with many exciting updates containing further story arcs, maps, functions, events, heroes, weapons to come.

If you spend the majority of your week at the head of a classroom or lecture hall, you may want to check out PingPong – a smartphone and computer app from developer Waterbear Soft Inc.

Leave your table tennis rackets at home - PingPong isn’t that type of app. It’s actually a pretty nifty tool that allows you to communicate with the people around you who’ve gathered for the same lecture, class, or discussion.

In fact, teachers, workshop speakers, and lecturers from across the world have been using it to get real-time feedback from their audience.

PingPong doesn’t have a single use case and because you can access the service as either a host or a guest without signing up for an account or registering your details first, it’s useful for carrying out a wide variety of group activities.

You can use the app to induce questions from your audience or to assess the understanding your students have of a specific subject, for example. As the host, you can also share essential course materials stored in your Evernote account and moderate contests or quizzes that require no pre-registration from your guests.

In fact, you can use the app to perform any task that requires – among others – a multiple choice, true/false, send text, or send image function.

Naturally, it’s important that you can view the responses your guests submit straight away, which is why PingPong allows you to view all information provided by your guests in real-time with the help of graphs and lists.

You’ll also be pleased to read that PingPong has a web app available and it’s accessible on Mac, PC, and pretty much any other device that can access the web, so those who don’t own smartphones or tablets yet don’t have to be left out in the dark.

Head on over to the App Store [download] or Google Play [download] and grab PingPong for free.

Developed by Newin Inc, nPlayer may seem like your standard video player – but is aiming to be the best in its field by providing high quality video play performance and support for a huge number of video formats and codecs.

User reviews include quotes such as “I have tested many apps but this one is my only official player for all my iDevice,” “I’ve used a number of video players. This is by far the best,” and “this is by far the best streaming app ever” just demonstrate that it’s well on its way to achieving this aim too.

One way it looks to be the best video player on iOS is the Network Function, which – uniquely for video players for mobile devices – enables stream-play from a range of servers including WebDAV, FTP, SMB, and UPnP/DNLA.

You can also adjust a huge number of options while watching videos – including brightness, audio set-up, subtitles, aspect ratio, and more. Touch screen controls allow you to easily adjust playback, subtitle positions and fonts, and volume and brightness, too. The app makes sure that high resolution videos play fluidly without interruptions.

nPlayer image
File management is also simple to grasp, with options to delete, move, rename, and create files – alongside a password lock system to make sure that your videos are kept safe. You can also transfer files without USB cable connection through a wi-fi connection.

As mentioned a range of video formats are supported, including (but not limited to) MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI, WMV, ASF, FLV, OGV, RMVB, TP – as well as audio files in MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC, and APE.

For real videophiles the app also allows H.264/MPEG4 hardware acceleration for MKV, AVI, and FLV formats over Local, HTTP, FTP, SFTP and SMB protocols – and even supports the official Dolby audio codec (AC3, E-AC3). The recently released 2.6.4 version of the app added support for Toshiba wireless storage devices too, such as FlashAir, Wireless SSD, and the Wireless Adapter.

So if you want to check out the video player that seems to be making waves you can download the iOS 8 compatible version of nPlayer for iPhone and iPad for $4.99 / £2.99 now [download].

If you carry an iPhone or a decent Android-powered device in your back pocket at all times, you’re never without a great camera that you can pull out at a moment’s notice.

Part of the fun of capturing an impressive photo these days is adding your own personal touch (such as a filter) and sharing it with masses – apps like Instagram wouldn’t be as popular as they are if it wasn’t.

Moldiv, a photo editing app from Seoul-based developer JellyBus, gives you plenty of options for adding your own personal stamp to the photos you take.

The popular app allows you combine and edit multiple photos in order to create amazing photo collages, and add frames and even text captions before you share your masterpiece with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, the abovementioned Instagram, and many more.

Moldiv - 2 2
Moldiv is packed with options. There are over 80 basic frames and 100 premium frames to choose from, for example – all of which can be resized and adjusted and – ultimately – customized just the way you like.

Furthermore, there are 50 photos filters on-board with which to adjust your photos, including specially crafted options that enhance the natural vibrancy of your snaps. You can even control the opacity of Moldiv’s filters and apply them to multiple photos at once.

The editing options don’t end there, mind. Thanks to version 2.0 of Moldiv, which was released to celebrate reaching 20 million users, you can collage your favorite photos like a magazine or poster with the help of 60 presets.

Moldiv-3 2
Since its release back in 2013, Moldiv has been Apple’s ‘Editor’s Choice’ in 120+ countries around the world, and has been featured in the Cupertino company’s ‘New & Noteworthy’ section of the App Store in 110+ countries.

JellyBus, the developer responsible for Moldiv, is currently hosting two special Instagram events (titled Selfie King and Queen and Kiss My Baby) – both of which are open to US residents until October 29 at 12:00 AM PDT.

If you’d like to enter and be in with the chance of nabbing yourself an iPhone 6, an Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens, a handheld selfie stick with remote, or an App Store voucher, use Moldiv to create a collage of selfies or baby photos and submit it to Instagram with the hashtag #ILoveMoldiv.

You can submit multiple entires at once, and be sure to tell you friends about your entries and get them to vote for them.

You can download Moldiv from the App Store [download] and Google Play [download] for free. In- app purchases allow you to unlock packs of premium frames and filters if you do want to splash a bit of cash though.

As you progress through AstroNest, you’ll be required to upgrade buildings, such as residential facilities and energy plants; and recruit heroes to take up positions within your community, such as fleet captain.

astronest-2As soon as you reach Level 10 in AstroNest, you can access a new area of the game named War, which allows you to compete against other real-world players from the opposing faction for control of the universe. Hit Level 30, and you can join a Raid mode, too.

Based on the feedback the developer of AstroNest has received so far, players love the game’s sci-fi graphics and detailed scenario. AstroNest’s dynamic strategy gameplay is also a big hit among those who’ve played the game.

the-battle-cats-1
For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, The Battle Cats is an incredibly popular character-raising title that has racked up 10 million downloads in Japan and an impressive two million downloads in the first month of its release in Korea.

Another thing you should know about The Battle Cats: it’s now available to download in the US, the UK, and other English-speaking countries for your iPhone and iPad, as well as those Android-powered smartphones and tablets you have lying around.

The Battle Cats isn’t a lighthearted title about chasing balls of wool. You’ve probably already guessed that from its name. It is, in fact, an action-packed affair in which you’re charged with leading a feline army on a rampage.

the-battle-cats-2
Your aim, then, is to traverse the globe, using the game’s simple battle system to defeat weird and interesting enemies and raze opposing bases along the way. After each successful bout, you can upgrade your cat warriors using the XP you’ve just earned, and even evolve them into stronger beasts.

There are other ways to strengthen your army, such as collecting treasures. These scattered trinkets come in three rarities (superior, normal, and inferior) and offer varying degrees of might boosts.

Ask the developer of The Battle Cats why its game is so popular, and it’ll tell you that it’s down to three main factors: the number of ‘loveable’ characters there are, the amount of stages that are on offer, and the ease at which you can play.

the-battle-cats-3
The Battle Cats is available to download from the App Store [download] and Google Play [download] for free, so you can test it out for yourself and only your time is at stake.

As its name suggests, your aim in My Dolphin Show is to make a splash and wow audiences by putting in the performance of a lifetime in your very own sea life attraction.

What games (if any) served as inspiration for My Dolphin Show?
Kids and their parents are thrilled and entertained for hours at adventure parks. Recreating that experience is the inspiration for My Dolphin Show.

What do you think sets My Dolphin Show apart from the other titles available on the App Store and Google Play?
The game scores an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, so we know kids love it.

The mechanics of the game enable them to express a wide variety of interests like competing and achieving, but also showing off their creative side.

picture2Which part of My Dolphin Show are you personally the most proud of and why?
Kids love a challenge and the amount of tricks they can work at perfecting is endless.

Kids can do everything from scoring goals and making the perfect splash. Parents also like this because it often creates a chance to work together with their kids, making decisions as a team.

Do you plan to extend the life of My Dolphin Show with updates? If so, what content do you have planned?
We have new versions planned for this November and December. These will be set in a theme park and a water park.

Do you plan to release My Dolphin Show on any other mobile or handheld platforms in the future?
Yes, we are considering bringing it to other platforms also, but we first want to focus on finishing w!orld 4 and 5 for iOS and Android.


My Dolphin Show is available for free with in-app purchases. Why did you choose this payment model, and did you consider any other models during development?
Our goal was to reach as many players as possible. Keeping it free is an ideal way to do that.

Does finding information on the internet frustrate you? Do you spend the majority of your time aimlessly skimming through multiple webpages in an attempt to find the most useful?

If so, you may be interested in an app called pickWEB.

pickWEB is a ‘thematic catalogue’ of the world’s most interesting and current websites. This catalogue, is curated by a human being rather than a robot or a computer, and it’s constantly being reviewed and updated in accordance with current information.

photo 1

The pickWEB team has tried to select the world’s most interesting websites from a variety of themes, which include the likes of business, health, entertainment, cinema, and music. There are also separate collections of sites for both men and women.

Furthermore, the catalogue is divided in accordance with countries. Currently, the pickWEB catalogue contains links to websites in Great Britain and the USA, as well as in Canada, France, Germany, Russia, and Ukraine.

The program itself has a multilingual (English, French, German and Russian) interface.

The pickWEB app on your iPhone or iPad features a pretty handy ‘favorites’ section where you can store the sites you’re likely to visit most for easy access. You can also create your own links to websites within the pickWEB app using its integrated search option, so you don’t even have to leave the app.

photo 2

pickWEB was created out of necessity. More often than not, people (especially those who are new to computers and the web) spend more time searching for relevant information on the internet than they do enjoying the content that they were interested in.

Sure, you can use a search engine like Google, but these often return websites that a full of garbage or completely outdated, and you still need to skim through tons of information to find what you’re truly looking for.

pickWEB is an attempt to solve this issue, and the team who created it are incredibly proud that the app can help you reach necessary information in just a few taps. The pickWEB team strives to make the pickWEB app as simple and convenient to use as possible, and is constantly working to perfect its user interface.

photo 3

According to its developer, pickWEB is currently a pilot project and all constructive criticism is not only useful, but welcome. Over the next few months, the pickWEB team plan to implement plenty of new features in the app, including the ability to organize a personal catalogue of links.

Imagine that this catalogue will be stored in one place, and accessible from almost anywhere in the world at any time from practically any device.

pickWEB is already available on a wide variety of platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8), and a client designed for Apple’s Mac OS is in the works.

Head on over to the App Store or Google Play right now and grab the pickWEB app completely free of charge.

Coco Games have opened up pre-registration for its new MMORPG Chaos Fighters, and are encouraging everyone to sign up.

In an initiative that’s actually quite rare in the West, if you register you can receive a notification of when the game becomes live in the App Store. Why should you do such a thing, though? Well, the developer gives two reasons – one, as the game is an MMORPG with a strong PvP focus, getting the game first could give you the edge over your competitors. Second, and perhaps more intriguingly, pre-registering will give you a code to redeem some in-game items – and also enter you in a competition to win one of three iPad Minis.

You can pre-register by visiting this link.

Wyse Games’ endless runner/shooter hybrid Blaze&Graze! has been updated today, adding in new weapons and boss-waves.

The game, which boasts a knockabout and lighthearted tone, involves a heroic sheep called Lamb Rammy looking to save his family from slavery. He does this by running and gunning his way through several locales and taking advantage of a wide range of weaponary and special abilities.
Version 1.4 of the game includes the following additions:
  • Total balance reworking. New boss-waves.
  • 2 new weapons
  • New backgrounds
  • Bugfixes and spellchecking
  • 1 new outfit
You can download Blaze&Graze! from the App Store now for 69p / $0.99 [buy].

Top down dual-stick shooter In a Space has been released exclusively into the Canadian App Store today, and looks to bring a bit more depth to the party than just mindless blasting.

Developed by Actoz Soft, the title sees you playing as a robot firing away at enemies on various planets – but there are also several opportunities to create clans with other players and work together to dominate the universe the game has created. Or you can go on a one robot dictatorship rampage. Your call.

There’s a large amount of weaponry available to use as you’d expect too, with all the arsenal at your disposal upgraded and improved largely through artifacts you collect in-game.

You can download In a Space – if you’re in Canada that is – for free now [iTunes link]. A release outside of Canada is yet to be announced at this time.

Made free to download from a price of $1.99, Alarmy (Sleep If U Can) from Delight Room offers a unique way for you to be woken up in the mornings. More details on how the app works can be found from the developer below:

Alarmy (Sleep If U Can) is the innovative solution for those who just can’t seem to get up on time, even with an alarm clock. This app has been cleverly designed to force you to get out of bed. You set it up by registering a photo of an area or room in your house. Then once the alarm is set, the ONLY way to make it stop ringing is to get out of bed and go take a photo of the registered area.

The World’s Most Annoying Alarm
Dubbed as “the world’s most annoying alarm”, Alarmy has quickly become a favorite mobile app among users. It has been featured in Gizmodo, Cnet, and at Huffington Post, and is currently Number One in its category in 33 countries, including France, Germany, and South Korea.
