Implosion - Never Lose Hope: How to Make Sense of the Ark System

Posted by Rob Rich on April 12th, 2015

[Trying to decide if Implosion is worth buying? Check out our review.]

Fighting your way through Implosion’s many, many levels isn’t difficult to figure out - by which I mean it won’t take long to learn the ropes - but the Ark System it uses to manage your upgrades never really gets a proper explanation. So rather than trying to feel your way around, how about you let us show you the ropes?




The Basics

The Ark System is split into four sections where you can equip different systems you find or purchase - Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Lambda. All systems can affect your power or endurance, along with other systems unique to their category.

  • Alpha - 2 slots. Tends to focus on passive attack bonuses like critical rates and ballistics damage. Some upgrades also affect your shield power and can increase item drop rates.

  • Beta - 2 slots. More defense-oriented with upgrades that increase amor, agility, and shield repair.

  • Gamma - 2 slots. Emphasizes things like HP recovery, “Rage,” and restorative powers. Some upgrades can also include the Hack ability, which will be necessary to access certain locked rooms in various levels.

  • Lambda - 1 slot. These upgrades grant entirely new special abilities, such as creating a temporary shield or triggering an area-effect attack.

No belated April Fools jokes here. Wayforward and Disney Interactive have just released DuckTales Remastered onto the App Store.

This remake of the NES classic (and game with one of the best soundtracks of the era) includes a new art style, 3D backgrounds, difficulty tweaks, tutorials, voice acting, expanded levels, unlockable art galleries, and so on. It was also something of a hit on consoles when it came out last year; and now it's on iOS.

We'll have a review ready later today, but if you just can't wait you can download DuckTales Remastered right now for $9.99.

First Look: Need For Speed Undercover Now Available

Posted by Jeff Scott on May 5th, 2009

EA Mobile really likes to surprise everyone with the releases of their iPhone apps. No release dates, just bam, there they are. That happened again today with the release of one of the most hotly anticipated iPhone games, Need For Speed Undercover.

The game which has been delayed more than once, was first seen last year in early forms has finally arrived. You can grab it now via this link. It will show up in the iTunes App Store indexes after they are next refreshed.

This game had also been mentioned as a possible launch title for the rumored Premium App Store -- guess this puts that rumor to rest, for now anyway. The game was released for $9.99, not the rumored $19.99 point. Pinning $9.99 as the top price point for games for the iPhone.

The game features a story mode like all of the recent Need For Speed games. Luckily all of the movies can be skipped so that you can get to the racing. And the racing, at least in our initial tests, delivers good and smooth, performance. There are multiple race types and of course multiple cars to unlock.

We'll have a full review for you soon. But so far this is shaping up to be a pretty good racer.
