Grab Your Spandex! LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril is Here

Oh no! Loki and his evil buddies are constructing a super-weapon. Who can stop them? The LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes! After their success with consoles and PC last year, Marvel and Lego have teamed up to bring LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril to mobile devices. Play as Spider-Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and 88 other characters. Seek out the Cosmic Bricks in the 45 missions that span the Marvel Universe.

The game has two control settings: “Console” and “Touch Screen,” which will make it easier for players to play the way they prefer. As the app requires no internet access players can feel free to play where and when they like. Just watch out when downloading the game. It takes up 2.2gb of space when downloaded with wifi.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril is available on the App Store for $4.99.

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.

Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Being both a licensed tie-in and free-to-play makes it seem like Tales of Honor already has two strikes against it. However, the experience has potential - it just falters due to repetitive, unchanging gameplay.

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.

WaywardSoulsTower

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:

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is one gorgeous-looking action/adventure game that’s just about ready to storm the App Store.

You’ll be guiding Prometheus through seven different acts and three possible difficulties, hacking up bad guys the whole way. He’ll also be collecting lots of gear, which is all upgradable and usually includes some sort of special ability such as causing poison damage. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I did think it as pretty cool how the armor sets will actually start to look different as you upgrade them.

I’m also curious to see how players take to the leaderboards. Normally I’m not much of a high score buff, but the leaderboards for Godfire are actually split across all versions of the game. So it’ll be interesting to see how the competition pans out – and will no doubt spark more physical vs. virtual control debates. To which I say “Bring it on!”

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus should be releasing on the App Store in the second Quarter of this year, and it’ll be a premium title.

Evergreen Studios has announced that its upcoming game, Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet, will be available for iOS devices via the App Store on April 24.

Timed to match the time period of the recently released ‘Tales of Honor: On Basilisk Station’ comics, the game follows the action of a newly minted naval academy cadet looking to save the day. For fans of David Weber’s Honor Harrington, it should be a real treat.

Evergreen senior executives Scott Kroopf and Richard Browne are eager to the game hit the App Store. “Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet is the next phase in the expansion of the Tales of Honor story world,” says Kroopf. “Now gamers can discover the unique battle tactics and enjoy the military authenticity of the Honorverse. The game, like the recently released comic, is intended to function as a standalone experience, yet we’re designing them to be complementary. Our goal is to make it easy for fans of all types to explore the rich universe that David Weber has created.”

Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet will be available for free. The second comic issue of Tales of Honor: On Basilisk Station will be available in comic stores and digitally on Comixology.com on April 30.
