AerenaAs mentioned earlier this week, free-to-play turn-based MOBA Aerena: Clash of Champions has a new premium priced version called Aerena – Masters Edition. This new edition eschews its former F2P model in favor of asking players to pay upfront for an experience that’s ad-free and eliminates the grind. Since I reviewed Aerena when it first came out and noted the game’s somewhat slow progression, I decided to take a look at Masters Edition to see how well it delivers on its promises.

aerena-masters-edition-iOS-02As it turns out, I found myself able to purchase unlocks including new units, ships, and shells all within playing a couple matches, which is a big difference from Clash of Champions. It seems as though Masters Edition is more generous with its in-game currency in general, making progression feel a lot smoother. In doing so, playing it felt more like a game about crafting a loadout that fits a particular playstyle rather than a game about slapping together whatever units and items are the most affordable.

aerena-masters-edition-iOS-04It is worth noting that with this re-release players can still opt to play Aerena in its free-to-play form, and both versions of the game allow players to play against one another. Also worth noting is the fact that the free-to-play version offers time-limited trials of new units, whereas the paid version does not. This isn’t really a big deal though, since it is easy enough to unlock units in Masters Edition anyway.

Overall, those that were frustrated by the progression mechanics of Aerena: Clash of Champions in its original form should be pleased with the changes that Aerena – Masters Edition has made. That being said, anyone that wasn’t initially compelled by it won’t be won over by this new version.

Tempo is essentially one cinematic action scene after another, but player interaction is too minimal to feel like an integral part of that action.

TattleType is Basically Kid Spyware for Parents

Posted by on January 13th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

For those helicopter parents who hover about their kid in constant fear, the internet can be a scary place. Vaughn Simon has created a new app, TattleType, that allows parents to monitor what their kids are typing.

Basically a parent can set up a list of restricted words and then if their kids types those words, the parent is notified. The app can also quote a few words leading up to the restricted word and whatever the child typed afterward for the next 30 seconds. Is it a creepy app that violates your kid’s privacy, or a powerful tool to help provide a level of safety to your family?

You can decide for yourself (if you’re so inclined) by downloading TattleType for $4.99 on the App Store.

Hold on to Your Blocks – Terraria Has a Really, Really Big Update

Posted by on December 5th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The new update for 505 Games’ popular game, Terraria, can be (and is) described as massive.

They’ve added over 1,000 new items and block types. You’ll be able to build bigger and better with all those blocks, but look out because with great blocks comes great enemies – over 100 new enemies and 4 new bosses to be specific. Oh dear. You might just have to recruit one of the 15 new pets or hang out with one of the eight new NPC’s.

If all that wasn’t enough, 505 Games also added new biomes as well as updates to old ones, new events, new music, bigger chests, and weather. Good heavens.

You can check out Terraria for $4.99 on the App Store.
