Ace of Arenas is a MOBA perfectly designed for mobile

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Ace of Arenas is a mobile MOBA that's been built from the ground up with its chosen platform in mind.

For a start, the touchscreen controls don't try and simulate mouse play. So, instead of tapping the screen to move your character and use your skills, you use your thumb and perform a series of swipes.

It's also much faster in pace thanks to the new Fast and Furious Mode, which grants you super buffs and increased movement speed to ensure matches last under 10 minutes.

We reached out to Gaea Mobile's Jason Dahlberg to learn more about the development of Ace of Arenas, and how the developer managed to so successfully port the MOBA experience onto mobile.

The iOS and Android MOBA sensation Ace of Arenas launched back in September 2015, and has had a startling amount of new content added to it since.

In total, five major updates have been released since then, and the game has expanded to North America, Europe, and Asia, with four new languages added to reach a vaster audience.

To help you understand exactly what's changed since launch, we've broken it all down into the top three new features you can find in your favourite mobile MOBA. Enjoy!

Bubble Jungle
is a brand new 3D platformer available right now on iOS and Android which provides a massive 15 hours worth of leapy fun inspired by Super Mario.

Inspiration has also been drawn from Bubble Bobble though. You play as the chameleon Chuck who has to battle his way to the end of a bunch of levels in a variety of zany worlds, trapping enemies in bubbles and popping them to eat fruit along the way.

The best part is that the game is completely multiplayer, and playable by up to four people at once in cross-platform. That's quite the achievement on mobile.

To learn more about the ambitious Bubble Jungle, we reached out to Alessandro Maniscalco, Co Founder at developer Cranky MonkeyStudio, to learn more about how the multitude of influences have affected development, the challenges faced during development, and the plans for its future.
