Super Awesome Quest - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies on How to be Super Awesome

Posted by Jennifer Allen on July 14th, 2015

[Still can't decide if you want to hit that "Download" button? Take a look at our Super Awesome Quest! review.]

Have you just downloaded Super Awesome Quest! and you're not sure where to begin? Don’t worry about it! We’ve got you covered with our handy beginner’s guide, ready to get you all set up and flying through the early levels.


Starting Out

  • Right at the start, you get the choice of two heroes. You can control either Greg the Paladin or Val the Valkyrie. Don’t fret too much, though. Once you reach stage 8 you can unlock the other one and switch between them as and when you like.
  • As you play, you’ll learn that the different characters offer different benefits, so try to keep their levels about equal. This will seem trickier at first, but you’ll soon get used to regularly switching between the two.

Posted by Rob Rich on July 14th, 2015

Freddy and his pals have been scaring the pants off of people for almost a full year. Now, weeks away from the one year annivarsary of the original Five Nights at Freddy's (seriously, the series has gotten four games in one year), we stand on the brink of Five Nights at Freddy's 4. And let me just say, it looks like the NOPE-iest bunch of NOPE that ever NOPED.

Koi - Journey of a Fish Sure Looks Pretty, Doesn't it?

Posted by Rob Rich on July 13th, 2015

Koi - Journey of a Fish is a beautiful looking game that calls to mind Flower after about five seconds of watching it in action. And I'm totally okay with that.

Card Wars, the Freemium Game with the Premium Price, is Currently Free

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: COOL DWEEB :: Read Review »

I might be alone in my contempt of Card Wars, but I can't help finding it to be an insult. Charging a premium for what is basically a free-to-play game is just gross. And it's not even "basically," it is a free-to-play game. They just decided to charge money for it. Or at least they did, but now it's free so I'm not quite as mad.

To celebrate goats in gaming, we're giving away two £50 Steam vouchers

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 9th, 2015

Goats are awesome - we're rather big fans of them here at 148Apps and to celebrate their great contribution to gaming, we're giving away two £50 Steam vouchers.

Mobile gaming has allowed us to live the mass-destruction lifestyle of a goat in Goat Simulator, fight off bottomless goat hunger and a zombie apocalypse in GoatZ, and jump around eating food and creating our own fiendish levels in the Goatup franchise.

You could say it's been pretty good to us goat lovers.

However, we wouldn't go so far as to call ourselves goat experts - as our score of 4 / 12 in this rather humorous online quiz would attest to.

Do you think you can tell your goat from your goatee? If so, take on the challenge yourself - after all, you can't do any worse than we did.

Here at Steel Media, we're giving away two £50 Steam vouchers to celebrate goats in gaming and all you have to do to enter is head on over to Twitter, retweet the following tweet, and follow us.


Easy as that goat quiz, right?
