Fight fireballs with more fireballs in the safety of VR with Elemental Combat out now

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 29th, 2017

Elemental Combat is a multiplayer game that challenges you to blast away your foes with fire and various other elements. In VR though, not in real life.

You cast these moves with your real hands though, thanks to motion controls. Think The Last Airbender but far cooler and you're along the right lines.

Each move is based on one of the four different elements of air, earth, water, and fire - each of which has a different strength and weakness. Fire is very offensive, but lacks defence for example.

Selecting your favourite element and developing a playstyle is a huge part of the fun here. By the time you're an expert you'll really feel like your style is unique.

You'll do all of this in two different modes. There's a single player that teaches you the basics before you take them into battle with you in multiplayer.

That serves like an FPS, with you performing moves on your friends to defeat them so you have a higher score by the end.

Elemental Combat took the top prize as Best VR Game at the PGC XR Helsinki Indie Competition, and even ended up as a runner up best XR Game.

So stop wasting time and go and grab Elemental Combat right now on Steam. It's even 10% off right now to celebrate the launch.

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.

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.

MU Origin receives an autumnal patch with updates to pets and PVP

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 27th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Barely a month goes by without the workaholics at Webzen introducing shiny new content to MU Origin. This latest autumnal update continues the trend, with a big old battle, pet perks and temple blessings giving gamers more to play with.

Like the Norse myth of its namesake, Ragnarok is an epic fight, except instead of Odin et al, it’s between you and rival warriors. This massive all-server barney involves players ranked within the top one hundred in the last month, so it’s an exclusive club. If you make the cut, you’ll be fighting for the number one spot over the course of a week – the 10th to the 16th of each month, 3.30pm to 4.30pm server time. Whittle all your opponents away, and you’ll win the epithet MU Origin No.1 and the right to strut round Lorencia like you own the place. For those unsuccessful, there are still prizes for taking part. Ragnarok points are awarded whether you win or lose, and can be used to buy items from the Ragnarok shop.

Aside from solo combat, the update ushers in Guild Temples that grant bonuses to your character. Investing resources into upgrading your temple means the strength of buffs and bonuses improve, so you might want to consider it if you’re looking to gain the edge over rivals. The level cap for guilds has gone up two points to ten, too, so there’s room to grow more powerful in other ways.

If you’ve completed the Faith War quest, you’ll automatically unlock the pet skill system, the next new feature in this latest MU update. Skill slots can be unlocked and upgraded for pets level thirty and above, providing handy buffs to your character. Every time your eligible pets level up another ten times, they’ll unlock an additional skill slot. The skills themselves come in three grades – Rare, Epic and Magic. Your pet can have four active skills at any one time, which could provide a useful stat boost.

There’s also a new Cry Wolf statue in Lorencia you can praise, a new area called Elveland to explore for characters eleven rebirths or higher, plus a couple of minor system improvements thrown in. That’s the low-down on the update, until the next patch in not too long. You can enjoy these additions whilst slaying monsters by downloading MU Origin for free on iOS and Android.

Run a farm from your mobile in Big Farm: Mobile Harvest

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 26th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If you’re looking for a laid-back alternative to all the war games out there in app land, how about a bright, cheerful farm simulator instead? German developer Goodgame Studios has brought its browser-based Big Farm to the mobile, and the only hacking and slashing you’ll be doing is ploughing your fields.

Big Farm: Mobile Harvest begins with your inheriting a sorry swathe of countryside from your uncle George. You can make him proud by turning the plot’s fortune around, building a productive farm and harvesting the fruits of your labour. Helping you do just that are friendly locals Benny and Tessa, along with other colourful characters dedicated to cheering up the land a bit. They’ll issue you with quests and aid you with useful tips along the way.

Big Farm: Mobile Harvest is strategic, with the priority being sustainable management. You can’t build a thriving farm on shaky foundations, so you have to keep the livestock and farmhands happy, reinvest the profit you make from selling down the market into growth, reuse materials like manure to improve the quality of your soil and output of your harvest. There are a lot of arable balls to juggle, but the game guides you gently along the way. As well as quests, seasonal events will keep you keen. There’s a Halloween party coming up, as well as a Fairytale Festival and farmyard tour to arrange.

If you’re looking for fun farm simulator to relax into, you can download Big Farm: Mobile Harvest for free on Android and iOS.
