Winter comes to Darkwood as Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery receives Christmas update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 8th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

MyTona, based in the chilly Siberian city of Yakutsk, has brought a little festive fun to its hidden object game Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery. The Christmas update introduces some new inhabitants to players, and with them a chance to win plenty of bonus items.

Gameplay for Seekers Notes follows the tried and tested formula of hidden object games – you investigate locations for clues in order to solve mysteries. This time, the location is Darkwood, a charming city beset by a strange curse. You navigate around 28 detailed areas, talking to the locals and spotting objects to solve puzzles, all with a view to lifting the spell. You’re against the clock, so you have to work fast to spot everything you need in each location.

There are an impressive 1200 quests to tackle, and 222 collections to find. If you end up befuddled by a particular puzzle, ask a friend via social media to help. Fellow ‘seekers’ can leave help including items in your game to give you a hand, and by doing so boost your research reward once you solve the puzzle.

The Christmas update has given a seasonal makeover to Darkwood, with festive decorations now adorning the quaint corners and charming buildings of the city. But there are also some new characters that have migrated here for the winter, including Sir Tubby the evil snowman and the Ice Queen. You can banish these unpleasant characters and by doing so win items including fixers (used to combine your collections), candy, toys and other seasonal bonuses. The characters will be gone as soon as the event is over and the snow has all gone, so be quick!

Seekers Notes: Hidden Mystery is free to download from the App Store, Google Play, Windows Store, and Amazon Appstore.

Summon Norse gods in Japanese RPG Valkyrie Connect from Ateam

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 24th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Nagoya-based developer Ateam isn’t new to the world of mobile roleplaying games. Last year they released Unison League, in which you control a warrior as they venture across the dangerous land of Granvia. This year, they’ve got a new treat for fans of JRPGs - Valkyrie Connect.

Valkyrie Connect combines Norse mythology with anime tropes. You assemble a tough group of characters to pit against challenging enemies, levelling up and unlocking new warriors as you go. Originally only for the Japanese market, the game has now had its worldwide release, with versions in most major languages available.

Building on what made Unison League popular, Valkyrie Connect’s gameplay centres around co-op real-time battles. You have to take on increasingly tough opponents, using your chosen characters strategically. For the more casual experience, there’s a handy autoplay function – so you can let the grinding happen whilst sitting back and watching the diamonds roll in. But keep an eye on each of your character’s gauges – when a gauge is full, you can tap to trigger a character’s unique Action Skill. There’s also Limit Burst, which combines the power of your warriors into one effective strike.

So why the ‘connect’ in the title? Well that’s down to the online mode. You and two other groups of combatants (a total of 15 characters in the arena altogether) can band together to take on enemies. In the true spirit of co-operative gameplay, spells you cast on your characters will stretch to your allies’ fighters as well.

If Norse mythology and Japanese roleplay get your blood pumping, download Valkyrie Connect for free from Google Play and the App Store.

Running from now through to January 17th, the Arsenal FC update also brings with it more in-depth options in which to truly step in to the shoes of a soccer manager. A new Club Union function will now allow you to form unions with friends when taking the action online, while the fresh mentor system now lets veteran coaches help newbies get a leg up with incentives that reward both you and them.

It’ll never be a chore to tow away a car, load up a lorry, or simply cruise along the country road.

Popclaire talk to us about why The Virus: Cry For Help offers such a unique twist on the Zombie genre

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 25th, 2016
+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

Humanity has succumbed to a virus that’s spread throughout the world. Now the dead have risen with a hunger for human flesh, and all that remain are a few survivors. One of those survivors has just called you for help.

That’s the plot in POPCLAIRE’s latest title The Virus: Cry for Help - and if you might be thinking that this is just another zombie apocalypse splatter fest then you’re (un)dead wrong.

The Virus is a real time adventure where you must communicate with Hanna (a survivor trapped in a city infested with the undead) and attempt to guide her to safety.

Your decisions will constantly shape the course of the game, with even the most trivial of decisions having startling consequences on how the story unfolds. Hanna will frequently send messages for you to respond to at anytime either within the app or via push notifications as well.

One of the developers from POPCLAIRE talked to us about how this title separates itself from other zombie related apps.

What do you think your game offers that you can’t get from any other title on the App Store?

Players will find themselves engaged right from the start with The Virus’ cinematic intro and soundtrack. The atmospheric mood and story is what makes the game really stand out, and Hanna’s pulse and mood monitor will keep suspense high.

There are other apps which boast this mechanic, but none of them with such a high impact on a user’s decision. The additional military channel is also another nice feature that helps to give users more background information.

What challenges did you face during development, and how did you overcome them?

We had to do a lot of work on syncing the soundtrack and graphical atmosphere with Hanna’s mood - but the end result is really cool.

Which part of the game are you personally the most proud of and why?

I like the different moods which give you a perfect idea of Hanna’s current situation.

Who would you say is the general audience of the app?

The Virus: Cry for Help isn’t just for zombie fans or casual gamers. We’ve found our audience to be really varied actually, with men and women both young and old enjoying the game. We’ve even found non-gamers have really enjoyed the experience the title offers.

Do you have anything planned in terms of future updates for the game and, if so, can you give us any details of what these might include?

We don’t want to give too much away right now so all we can say is that Hanna will definitely be back…soon.

Do you have any tips or advice to users on how to play the game?

I would recommend checking the military-channel as soon as “new messages” arrive.

How is The Virus performing so far, and has it been meeting expectations?

The Virus got a worldwide feature on the Apple App Store, and so far the performance has been great. The game is free to play and if you like the story, you can support our work and purchase the full story for €1.99.

You can download The Virus: Cry for Help on iOS and Android for free now.
