KEMCO has just released their newest action RPG, Seven Sacred Beasts. In the game you play as Mattie, a summoner who uses monsters to fight in competitions for money. His next big goal? To win the Summoners Rex – a competition to determine the world’s most powerful summoner – and claim the prize of 100 million gold.
Seven Sacred Beasts has over 100 monsters to collect and level-up. You can form strategies based on how you level your monsters and control how they use their powers in battle. And if you prefer a more hands-off approach, the monsters can also battle automatically.
Right now you can download Seven Sacred Beasts for a special introductory price of $3.99 (50% off).

Exceptional roguelike-inspired action-RPG Wayward Souls has been significantly updated.
The game now offers a new dungeon in the form of The Labyrinth, offering 20 floors of pain, the conclusion of the stories of the current six characters, plus a new boss. There are a bunch of new hats, a new Super Secret Area, some tweaks to the general game, and all-around fixes to anything else that needed correcting.
As is the way with Rocketcat Games’s promised pricing structure, Wayward Souls has gone up in price by $1, increasing to $5.99. There’ll be another price increase to $6.99 when the next update is released soon. Given, there’s already some information about the next update, including MFI controller support and at least two new dungeon modes, it’s the ideal time to dive into it and snap up Wayward Souls, before it rises in price once again.
Wayward Souls is available now on the App Store, priced at $5.99.

One of the more surprising iOS surprises to come out of E3 last week was the seemingly out of nowhere online action RPG Soul Guardians: Age of Midgard.
I’ve seen my fair share of action RPGs on the App Store before, but Soul Guardians displays a cool mix of colorful style and ridiculously over-the-top attack animations that really stand out. You’ll be able to collect monster cards, which can then be used as upgradeable special attacks. Seriously, there’s a ton of action to shove in your face, and you’ll be able to share it all with your friends or random strangers through online co-op.
Soul Guardians: Age of Midgard should be coming to the App Store within the next couple of weeks for free.
Rocketcat Games joined our Twitch channel late last week to stream Wayward Souls with us. For the first time, see the first boss of the game defeated, and see large chunks of the second area of the game, the Tower, with a couple of the game’s characters. The game releases on April 24.
We’ve shared YouTube videos of some of the highlights, along with a recap of the entire stream, containing information on the process of the game’s development and what players can expect when it releases.
See the first area of the game defeated with Renee the Rogue:

As well, Blythe the Warrior makes a lengthy run through the Tower, but can it be successful? As well, check out some of Wayward Souls‘ hats that will be available, including some of the early adopter hats:

Darkstone, the RPG thriller that has roots on PC and Playstation, is now available for iOS courtesy of Joystick Replay (via Microids). Thus, the evil Draak can be battled on Apple devices.
The gameplay should be familiar to folks who have played the other ports. The game itself features improvable heroes, localized subtitles, real-time play, plenty of weapons, and hundreds of enemies – among other things. Most importantly, the experience has been specifically tailored for touchscreens.
Darkstone is free (with optional in-app purchases) and available on the App Store.
