Sketch-Your-Own-Adventure Game Drawn to Life has Popped-Up on the App Store

Posted by on May 23rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Lately it seems like at least once per week some fairly big name games just sort of spring up on the App Store overnight. Although I suppose this week it was actually two. Looks like we can add 505 Games’ doodle adventure Drawn to Life to that list now.

Back when it was first released for the DS the game attracted a lot of attention due to the way it allowed players to draw their own content. Characters, weapons, vehicles, etc – a significant number of objects could be edited or created entirely from scratch. And now you can do it all on your iPhone or iPad. I shudder to think of some of the screen shots people will inevitably end up sharing…

Anyhow, you can grab Drawn to Life off the App Store right now for $4.99. Keep it PG.

Yesterday we mentioned that Space Hulk had received an update that added a new cross-platform co-op mode. Well we’ve also just figured out (thanks to the questions posed by 148Apps commenter Delnit) that it also supports cross-platform game saves. This means that you can carry over your campaign and multiplayer progress from your Mac/PC to your iPad and vice-versa, ensuring that you’ll always be ready to sacrifice a squad of genetically engineered supersoldiers in the name of The Emperor.

Here’s how you do it:

Warhammer Quest is Having a Big Sale on In-App Purchases This Weekend

Posted by on April 25th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

First of all, Warhammer Quest is a great game. You should go get it if you haven’t already, even if you missed out on it when it was free last week. But regardless of whether or not you were able to take advantage of the sale, there’s a totally new sale you can take advantage of this weekend.

From now through Sunday, pretty much all of the game’s in-app purchases are on sale for $0.99 each. That means new regions, enemies, heroes, etc. You can grab them all for a very reasonable price.

Warhammer Quest is available on the App Store for its more typical (and still quite worthwhile) price of $4.99.
