5 reasons Kingdoms of Heckfire is your next kingdom builder obsession

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 25th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Kingdoms of Heckfire is a brand new kingdom battler by A Thinking Ape, and it's one that aims to make the genre accessible for new players.

But that doesn't mean it's easier or shallower. No, the developer has worked hard to streamline the experience and make it a little more social so you're never alone.

Aside from that, this is the genre as you know and love it. Build stuff, battle enemies, and work with your friends to complete larger goals.

If you're still not convinced, here are five reasons why you really should check it out.

You can play with your friends and they'll actually want to

Lots of games have promised social play with your friends, and then you've gone and pestered them to play and they've just laughed and shook their heads.

Sound familiar? Well, we can safely say that that won't happen with Kingdoms of Heckfire.

The majority of times a friend doesn't want to play with you is because they just don't get the genre like you do. As we mentioned earlier, A Thinking Ape has worked hard to ensure that this one is easy to pick up and play.

So basically, if you can get your friends to shove this on their phone, the game will take care of the rest.

It's got a sense of humour

That's right. Kingdoms of Heckfire is chock full of amusing characters and dialogue that's bound to have you spitting your tea all over your phone. Just keep a tissue handy.

The humour also makes Kingdoms of Heckfire a much friendlier experience overall. That means that anyone can play it really, from the young ones all the way up to your grandparents.

If you like laughing - and don't we all - then Kingdoms of Heckfire is the game for you.

There are loads of dragons, and they're cute

Everyone loves dragons, don't they? Isn't that like the number one reason Game of Thrones is so popular right now? I'd say so.

Guess what else has dragons? Kingdoms of Heckfire! The best part is, they're not scary either. They're adorable dragons that you'd have no problem bringing home to meet your mum.

This alone is a major selling point in Kingdoms of Heckfire. If you haven't downloaded it already, then you probably have no soul.

There's real depth to it

When we said Kingdoms of Heckfire was accessible, we didn't mean lacking in depth. There's an awful lot of that here.

The PvP, for example, can involve literally thousands of players, and require weeks of planning along with your friends. Well, if you want to have a chance of winning that is.

There's a very real feeling that you can have an impact on the world around you in Kingdoms of Heckfire, and that's pretty special.

Clans, clans, and more clans!

There's a huge focus on clan play here, which is all the more reason to bring your friends along for the ride as we mentioned earlier.

You can get some lovely clan gifts just for playing together, and even send rewards to each other to cheer everyone up.

At this point, you're probably well convinced, so head on over to the App Store or Google Play to grab Kingdoms of Heckfire right now.

Blob’s latest outing also boasts a plethora of new customization features, allowing you to create the Blob you’ve always wanted. You can choose from a number of different Blob styles before dressing your Blob up with a collection of props you’ll find throughout the game, featuring anything from baseball bats to Wolverine claws.

Uncover alien mysteries in cross-genre side-scroller Deliria

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 22nd, 2017

If the Alien franchise taught us anything, it’s that landing on a strange planet at the behest of a faceless corporation is probably asking for trouble. And Eldritch Game’s Deliria doesn’t prove otherwise.

In 2107, Dimension LG7 is rich with Delirium, a powerful element which scientists are keen to exploit. You’re tasked with establishing a mining camp, but upon waking from stasis, discover most of your crew has disappeared and interdimensional creatures are crawling your way.

Deliria is a mix of base-building and side-scrolling adventure. Using the limited resources at your disposal, you’ve got to build and upgrade the defences of your base so it can withstand attack. Meanwhile, track down your missing crewmembers (because it would be mean not to) and hire mercenaries to repel the hostile inhabitants. Along the way, you can collect information about Deliria’s history and the fate that befell the previous miners on Dimension LG7. You can also harness some of the dimension’s power to use against the enemy and ensure the survival of your crew.

Deliria is a short side-scroller with base-building and exploration at its heart. Its hand-drawn graphics and 2D animation add a certain retro charm and comes with a great price tag. For a little slice of indie sci-fi, download it from Google Play and the App Store.
