It’s time to step up and start your spooky adventure with our guide to Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 20th, 2016

So you’ve just downloaded Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery, and you obviously want to hit the ground running. Well you’re in luck because you just so happen to be reading our very useful guide to playing.

First released in July last year, the game has been revamped to include an all new “dark square” setting to explore, and a shiny new rewards chest to win – not to mention now being available on loads more platforms including iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Amazon, and in the near future even Facebook.

So if you’re new to the game and want a heads up on what to expect, or you’re a veteran player in need of a little refresher – we’ve got everything you’ll need to help you start off strong.

General Game Play

Taking place in Darkwood – a mysterious city that’s shrouded in secrets and plagued by a terrible evil, you’ll have to step up to the mark and be the saviour they so desperately need.

Exploring over 28 creepy locations, you’ll have to hunt for hidden objects that’ll get you closer to unearthing the secrets of the city, and free the townsfolk from the horrible curse that’s trapped them within the city walls.

In your quest to save the town, you’ll have to befriend the locals to trade and receive useful items, and battle the terrifying monsters that terrorise the city, to progress in the game.

Banishing Monsters

While the city was already in the midst of a monstrous epidemic, the night of Halloween eve grands the ghouls even more power, but luckily for you there are ways of vanquishing them.

Although every monster you banish will earn you rewards and points that’ll help you progress, the higher the level of monster, the more you’ll get out of vanquishing them. Just remember that every monster has a unique banishing item, so be on the look-out for any you might find.

With the level one banishing items being fairly common place, you’re sure to collect a few lying around on your travels, but if need be you can still trade with the locals. However the higher the level monster, the harder you’ll have to search for the banishing items – with level 3 objects only being attained through trading with specific people.

While the lower level monsters will only earn you 100 -300 coins and a maximum of 3 energy points each, those on level 3 will get you 600 coins and at least 6 energy points.

To get the items you need to banish these monsters, you’ll need to speak to the Blacksmith, (who will craft the Neptune’s Horn and Silver Fang items to banish the Fire Elemental and Werewolf Leader), the Fortune Teller (who’ll give you the Greek Fire needed to get rid of the Clot of Dark) and the Inventer (they’ll help you dispose of the Gremlin Leader and Medusa by giving you the Electrical Net and Mirror Shield items).

The Fortune Teller will help you dispose of the Clot of Dark monster by crafting Greek Fire.

As for the Gremlin Leader and Medusa, you’ll need something a tad more scientific. Speak to the Inventor to obtain an Electrical net and Mirror to drive these evil beings out of Darkwood.

Almost everybody in Seekers Notes will have something useful to trade for, so always make sure to stay on everyone’s good side to find those all important banishing items.

You can download Seekers Notes: Hidden Mysteries for free from the App Store, Google Play, Windows Store, and Amazon Appstore.

Put your empire on top in our guide to Clash of Kings: The West

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 14th, 2016

Western gamers are in for a treat with the new RTS game Clash of Kings: The West. This is because it’s been designed specifically for the western market, so you’ll no longer have to put up with players from mainland China dominating the game as a result of cheaper IAP’s.

Developer Elex Tech has also included several new features, as well as refining elements of its popular franchise.

New additions range from exclusive events like castle lucky day and Vikings invasion, right up to resource collecting combos and much more.

One of the best changes made with this latest instalment in the franchise lies in its fairer challenge to players who don’t want to pay extra for progression. Elsewhere, PVP and PVE events have been moved towards well thought out strategies and gameplay, making the overall experience far more fair.

But invading kingdoms and destroying whole armies is still no easy task, so allow us to guide you through some of the game’s main features. Here are some of the key points to get you on your conquering way…

Getting started

A really convenient feature for all you newbie’s at the beginning of the game is a two-minute guide to get you on your merry way. If you’re still stuck you can always ask other players for help later on.
Early on in the game you will also receive a number of tantalising items that will help speed-up game progression - completely free of charge.

As cool as that is items will only get you so far of course, so your main focus will need to be earning experience points to progress as fast as you can. Making sure your VIP status is active, slaying monsters, and completing tasks are a great way for getting EXP early in the game.

Another tip is to invest in the extra builder from the start, as it will halve the time taken to upgrade buildings.

Kingdom conqueror

Once you start getting a taste for battles, resources and effort should then be focused in dominating the games various cities and towns.

Careful though – don’t forget that your own towns and cities will come under attack, so make sure to invest in defensive measures by upgrading castles, fortresses, hospitals, and more.

A different kind of clash

There’s also a new focus on several upgradeable buildings - a feature where you will need to prioritize what’s most important. A good tip is to focus on upgrading your college as soon as possible to give your kingdom a technological edge over your opponents.

Military hospital

Every kingdom needs an army of course, and if you want to build a kingdom that lasts you’re going to need to keep that army safe. Upgrading military buildings and hospitals will lessen the damage from battle and improve troop abilities.

A good tip early on in the game is to upgrade your military to the level of legion before focusing on improving your troop’s abilities.

Achievements worthy of a king

All of this feeds back into the game’s unlockables, with rewards for castle upgrades coming in the form of achievements.

The Wall of Honour will showcase your greatest feats on the battlefield - giving players extra incentive when it comes to showing off to friends.

When achievement requirements are met, players will earn a star and gold rewards. Stars can then be used to unlock stamps if you have three in your arsenal.

Even deeper than that, every few minutes you will get a free reward pack which can be found on the left side of the interface. If you still have a hankering for free gifts, you can visit the princess too.

And for those willing to splash out some cash, the game rewards them with free daily gifts. Which is nice.

You can find Clash of Kings: The West on iOS and Androidfor free.
