Huge Wayward Souls Update Hits the App Store

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

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.

– Fixes for the zoom-in bug for iPad 1 and iOS 5.1.1.

– Automatic screen flipping.

– Increased gold drop rate in the third and fourth dungeons.
– Rare chests now drop normal hats if you run out of rare hats to find.
– Guard Captains should no longer attack you immediately when they take damage.

Second update plans:

– Other stuff we didn’t get to do in the first update

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:

Joystick Replay Brings PC/Console Favorite Darkstone to iOS

Posted by on March 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.

Funcell123 has just released Age of Warriors, which is a 3D real-time RPG adventure, to the Canadian App Store; its release to the global App Store should follow shortly.

The free game features engaging graphics, several maps to explore, leaderboards, the ability to train characters, and hero classes. There are in-app purchases to help shape gameplay.
