Calling All Dragon Riders:
Want to know what we liked (and didn’t like) about all this fantasy fighting? Check out our Mark of the Dragon review!

Mark of the Dragon from Gamevil is a strategy/battle game that plays similarly to Clash of Clans. There’s one twist, however: you can breed dragons and raise them to be rideable war machines. Not surprisingly, this small gameplay tweak is pretty cool.

But fighting isn’t easy – even when you’re commanding things from the back of a giant lizard. Here are some tips and tricks to help you succeed in the dragon war.


 

Keep the Home Base Safe and Stocked

  • Guard your eggs – Dragon eggs are arguably your most valuable resource in Mark of the Dragon. They take time and effort to breed and hatch, and the resulting offspring forms the backbone of your assault force. Other players can steal eggs during a raid, so defend them accordingly. Build walls around your nest, and put weapons nearby.
  • Upgrade your resource depots ASAP – Upgrading the most important structures in your base, like your headquarters, requires a lot of resources – more than you can hold when you first begin playing the game. It’s extremely important to upgrade your resource depots whenever possible so you can amass the iron and wood necessary for major building projects.
  • Raids provide tons of resources – Low on wood or iron? Mark of the Dragon’s single-player campaign provides opportunities to score tons of resources. Get out there!

Make New Allies in the Latest Heroes of Dragon Age Update

Posted by on June 19th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Wardens, rejoice! Heroes of Dragon Age, the visually stunning squad-based battle game that Electronic Arts released last year, has received a big update. Now players have access to the Fortify feature, which binds characters or creatures to heroes in your squad and in-turn ups their stats. EA has also improved the Consume ability to add new fortify slots to upgrade your units.

Best of all, now Heroes of Dragon Age offers ally codes. Now you no longer have to wait to battle someone before asking them to join you. Players can send a unique code to their friends to find them in the game. So grab your buddies, fortify some beasts, and battle your way to infamy.

Heroes of Dragon Age is available on the App Store for free.

Part of a genre where every strategic battle title begins to look familiar, Heroes of Dragon Age separates itself with highly detailed artwork and gameplay to match. However, initial long load times and semi-auto gameplay might put some off.

Mech Conquest's approach to intergalactic warfare will see many sci-fi fans go weak at the knees. It's just a shame the use of completely automated battles may put a dampener on the action.

WonderCraft is a new iOS game coming soon in which players can lead large naval fleets into battle against other players or with other players against CPU controlled enemy fleets. In this game, players will be able to customize their futuristic fleets down to the types of boats that make up their flotilla and the types of weapons each boat wields.

The game controls with a simple touch control where players will touch enemy boats on the screen to direct their boats’ weapons. Sometimes players will be fighting each other for victory, and other times CPU controlled boats will attack during PvP play and the players will have to fend of these attacks as well. The game will include lots of different items to use and equip to change the tide of battle. This game looks like it could be a great real-time strategy titles on the iOS platform.

The official release date and price for WonderCraft have not yet been announced, but developer NPC Interactive assures the game is on it’s way.

FaceFighter

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
FaceFighter reminds me of early versions of Mortal Kombat. I had a lot of fun with that game, especially when friends and beer were involved. I never got great at it because of all the buttons, combos, and fatality moves were hard for me to remember (was it the beer?). Thankfully, FaceFighter solves all of these problems and has simple controls (4 buttons), simple rules (hit & don’t get hit), and fast gameplay.
