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.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Nadia Oxford on April 9th, 2015
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: IT'S NOT FOR NAUGHT
Naught Reawakening's checkpoint system is a source of frustration, but otherwise this world-turning platforming title is unique and atmospheric.

Page Turner Narborion Saga is Back with Book II: The God of Orcs Coming Out in March

Posted by Jessica Fisher on February 19th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: CHOOSE YOUR PATH :: Read Review »

Liber Primus Games has announced they will be releasing the next chapter of their action-adventure story, Narborion Saga Book II: The God of Orcs in March.

The story, written by Sylvia Finali and Dr Tom Pollak (former editor-in-chief of Dragon magazine), will remain in the fantasy genre but will use a whole new game engine called SagaScribe. This will let readers have more customizable options and features. Players will also be able to scan an image of their table top figurine into the game and have more options for character creation, spell crafting and arena fight training.

There's a lot to look forward to, really. If you haven't checked out the original Narborion Saga, you can download it for free on the App Store.

Tempo Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Lee Hamlet on February 18th, 2015
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: ALONG FOR THE RIDE
Tempo is essentially one cinematic action scene after another, but player interaction is too minimal to feel like an integral part of that action.
