Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about Guild Battles

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 14th, 2018

The latest update to Knights Chronicle brought us some balance changes and interesting new characters, but perhaps the most interesting addition of all is the game’s new mode. Guild Battle allows teams of players to test their collective strength against others, but participating in it isn’t as straightforward as you might think.

Underneath the basic premise of “beat as many other players as possible,” Guild Battle actually has some nuanced mechanics to it that can make the difference between being a mere contributor to your guild and a guild hero. Check out our tips below:

How to get the highest score in Tomb of the Mask for Android and iOS

Posted by Harry Slater on August 13th, 2018

Tomb of the Mask is a super-quick arcade dasher with remarkably simple swipe controls. It's also fiendishly tough, and if it gets your claws into you there's a very good chance that about every third second of your life is going to be consumed by thoughts of it. Honestly, it's very addictive.

But while it's easy to get to grips with what the game has to offer, there's still plenty of scope to learn more. That's where this list comes in. With these handy hints and tips you're going to be getting the sort of highscores that are going to put all of your friends to shame.

We've put a good few hours into the game now, and we're pretty sure we know what we're talking about. If you've got your own suggestions though, make your voice heard in the comments. That way we can all be horribly addicted to a game we're quite good at. Sick.

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about the August 9 update

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 8th, 2018

It seems like every two weeks, we can expect some new and exciting things to come to Knights Chronicle. In the last update, there were some nice quality of life features added to the game, but aside from a couple new heroes, not anything huge to shake the game up too much.

This upcoming update, which should hit within the next 24 hours, promises much more than that. Balance changes to heroes, a whole new game mode, and–of course–some more heroes to gush over. See below for more details:

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvP characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 2nd, 2018

We’re continuing our pseudo-tier list for Knights Chronicle by listing our picks of the best heroes to have on your team in the Arena.

Again, because the criteria for what makes a hero so great in Knights Chronicle can be extremely situational, we’ve simply given our top three picks for best heroes by type that will generally serve you well in the Arena. See our picks below:

How to play Speeball! for iOS and Android

Speedball iOS guide screenshot - Don't do this

No, Speedball isn't a digital remastering of the classic Amiga game of violence and sliding. Instead it's a game about a ball that goes really, really fast. And you need to tap the screen in order to ensure that that super fast lil' roller doesn't smash into any of the obstacles in front of you.

Unsurprisingly it's much harder than it looks. And since it looks pretty difficult, you can imagine the lengths you're going to have to go to to get the highest scores in the game. Luckily though, we've got your back on that account.

We've played a whole load of the game, and we've come up with some hints, tips, and tricks to ensure that every time you roll out on that road, you're going to be doing the very best you can.

How do I play Color Tube for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on July 27th, 2018

Color Tube is a super simple game of not smashing your little ball into the wrong colored part of a tube. Well, it sounds simple anyway. In actuality it's a hair-tearing, super-frustrating game of screaming at your phone and wishing ill to the developers.

But, since you probably want your hair to stay in one place, and you don't want to go on a murderous rampage against iOS game developers, we've written this handy guide to walk you through the ins-and-outs of the game.

It might not make you the greatest Color Tube player in the world, but by our reckoning if you follow these hints and tips you're going to be in the top ten at the very least.

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about the July 26 update

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2018

It's only been about a month since Knights Chronicle released and we're about to see our third huge update. The 1.1 release brought us the top tier attacker Morrigan along with some much-requested moves to make the game friendlier for free players, and the update that dropped just a week later added things like Haspiel Assault and the Taiyo Advent dungeon.

This latest update isn't quite out at the time of this writing, but it promises quite a few more goodies for Knights Chronicle players. See below for what some of these things might be:

How do you get the best scores in Ball Blast for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on July 24th, 2018

Ball Blast is essentially a mix between an arcade shooter, puzzle bobble, and a counting game. It's all about blasting balls into bits and claiming the coins they drop. But while it might appear simple to begin with, there are plenty of tips and tricks that can put you in pole position to get the very best scores.

And luckily that's what we're here to tell you. We've put hours into the game, and in this guide we're going to walk you through all of the hints and tips we've worked out in that time, so you can become sort sort of royal ball blaster. Takes all sorts to make a world, after all.

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvE characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 23rd, 2018

Everyone loves a good tier list, but there aren’t any great ones out there for Knights Chronicle. This isn’t just because no one bothered to make one though. It’s actually because heroes in Knights Chronicle may be valuable in one aspect of the game when they aren’t in another.

In an effort to build some semblance of a quality tier list for Knights Chronicle, you’d have to break down top heroes for each aspect of the game as well as sort them by the kind of hero they are, which is exactly what this list (the first of many) sets out to do.

This list of heroes in Knights Chronicle ranks the top three characters of each type purely by how good they are in Advent and Multiplayer Dungeons (also known as PvE). In other words, don’t use this list to build your Arena team. Check out our picks for best PvE heroes below:

Everything you need to know to win in Stack Jump for mobile

Stack Jump iOS guide screenshot - The Stack Jump logo

Stack Jump tasks you with building the tallest tower possible, though not through dropping blocks, as you might expect. Instead, you'll play as a tiny character, jumping into the air as blocks slide underneath you. Jump in time, and the blocks are added to the stack. Jump too early or too late, however, and you'll be knocked off your perch.

It's a simple idea, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of tips and tricks that can help you get a higher score. And that's where this guide comes in. We're going to walk you through everythihng you need to know to win in Stack Jump. So, without further ado, let's get on with it.

Knights Chronicle guide - Multiplayer dungeon guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 19th, 2018

We’ve talked quite a bit about building your best team for PvP in Knights Chronicle, but there always comes a time in the game where you need to turn to other players for help. Multiplayer dungeons can be some of the hardest missions in the entire game, but they don’t necessarily have to be.

You see, the reason why clearing bosses like Decain and even the lowly Flare can be so hard is that you have to depend on players who may or may not know what they’re doing. In order to be a good team player in Knights Chronicle generally, keep the following tips in mind and you’ll likely save yourself and others a lot of time and stamina.

Everything you need to know to win in Waves for mobile

Posted by Harry Slater on July 17th, 2018

Waves iOS guide screenshot - A flip through a cloud

Waves is sort of like an over-the-shoulder version of Tiny Wings. Although it manages to be much simpler than Tiny Wings, which is really saying something. Or, at least, it's simpler in its execution. That doesn't mean there aren't hints and tips that, once you've learned them, are going to ensure that you're getting the best scores you possibly can.

And that's where this article comes in. We've spent a good few hours bouncing along on the watery, occasionally fiery, levels in Waves, and we've written down everything we know about the game in five succinct points. Once you've scoured this article, you're going to be hitting the heights in no time flat. That's the 148Apps guarantee.

Everything you need to know to win in Block Balls for mobile

Block Balls iOS guide screenshot - Going for a big score

Block Balls is another in Voodoo's massive line-up of horribly simple, horribly addictive arcade games. It's all about smashing blocks with a cannon, a bit like a mix between Angry Birds and a Zerg rush. And while it's easy enough to pick up and play, you're going to find a decent level of challenge the deeper you get into the game.

And that's where we come in. We've put a good few hours into the game and come up with some hints and tips that we think are going to help you get the best scores, the best breaks, and have the most fun. So without further ado, let's get into the tricks that are going to see you destroying all the blocks in the cosmos.

Knights Chronicle guide - How to make the most of your knight selector ticket

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 16th, 2018

The best thing about Knights Chronicle is how friendly it is to players that don’t want to spend any money on it. Although it’s surface structure looks like a ton of stingy moves trying to squeeze money out of players, there are a ton of free perks Netmarble grants to players just for sticking with the game.

One of these perks is the Knight Selector Ticket, which grants players the option to choose any white or dark knight SSR units if they log into Knights Chronicle daily for 28 days. This provides an awesome opportunity for all players to fill key gaps in their current rosters with some really quality units, provided they make their choice carefully. If you’re wondering what units are best to pick for your 28 day Knight Selector Ticket, keep reading to learn how to best up your game with this sweet perk.

Who to avoid

Of the White and Dark Knights to select in Knights Chronicle, there isn’t one that stands head and shoulders above the rest as the best pick for all players. That said, there are a couple heroes that generally don’t provide a ton of utility that you should probably avoid.

Namely, Marduk, Damian, and Nemesis are pretty weak picks at the moment. Marduk struggles mostly because he only offers tons of defense without much damage output, prolonged taunting abilities, or useful hero talents. Damian, on the other hand, can become pretty great at deleting other characters, but getting him there takes a lot of investment in maxing him out, whereas Dark Knights like Ashley or Mary are pretty effective attackers almost immediately. Lastly, there’s Nemesis, who can be useful to counter teams that have a lot of reviving characters, but a lot of her damage output is dependent on generating Dark Orbs, which is a process that takes way too long at the moment.

Who to pick and why

If you pick any knights besides the three listed above, you’ll likely be a pretty happy camper, but let’s delve a little deeper into what each of these remaining characters have to offer:

    • Ramu - Despite being listed as a Hybrid-type fighter, Ramu is one of the best support characters in Knights Chroncile. This is mostly because she restores 10% of her party’s HP every turn and has the ability to revive two heroes at once with her ultimate ability. Her weakness is that she doesn’t really put out much damage at all, but all of her skills have utility outside of that that make Ramu one of the best picks you can make from this selector, both for PvP and PvE.
    • Mary - Mary is an offensive powerhouse. She has an extremely powerful ultimate ability that attacks all enemies at once and a chance to make three of her targets unable to revive. Mary is also interesting in that she gets more powerful as enemies die, making her a bigger threat the further into a fight you get. Out of all the knights available, Mary is a great pick, particularly if you want a great damage dealer for PvE missions.
    • Deimos - If Ramu sounds interesting, but you want a more traditional support character to add to your roster, Deimos is your best bet. Deimos not only provides healing, but also can remove buffs from enemies and grant Veil of Phantasm to your entire team, allowing you to avoid hard-hitting attacks right when you need to. Simply put, if you need a support hero and already have Ramu, or want someone more specialized for keeping your team alive, choose Deimos.
    • Ashley - The king of damage over time, Ashley is a great attacker to add to your party if you’re looking to build a team that excels at longer combat encounters. His kit involves an ability called Ebony Wound, which deals damage to heroes with it every turn and cannot be removed. On top of this, Ashley’s ultimate ability can do some amazing burst damage to a single target with the possibility to stunning for two turns as well. Of everyone in the selector, Ashley is probably best suited for people looking for a PvP damage dealer.

Make the best choice for your team

Ramu and Ashley are probably the best heroes to pick from this selector, but that doesn’t meant you should just blindly choose one of them. As mentioned in previous guides, Knights Chronicle is much more about having a team that works well together rather than just having a collection of powerful heroes.

At the end of the day, Mary might be just what you need to make your Dark/Water team be even more destructive, or you may want to take a chance on Marduk because you don’t have any defensive heroes at all and want to see if a future update buffs him a bit. No matter who you pick, just make sure it makes sense for your current hero box, and you can’t go wrong.
