Honkai Impact 3rd guide - What you need to know to get a head start in this anime brawler

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 30th, 2018

Want a new beat em’ up on mobile? Look no further than Honkai Impact 3rd. This gorgeous anime brawler involves building teams of powerful Valkyries to take down some vicious, futuristic foes. If this sounds like you’re cup of tea, check out this guide to help get you started out on the right foot.

Know your enemy

Honkai Impact 3rd is kind of like Fire Emblem games in that there’s three types of heroes and enemies, with each type being strong or weak against another. In the case of Honkai, Mecha types are strong against Creature types, Creature types are strong against Psychic types, and Psychic types are strong against Mecha types.

In the heat of a battle, it might be hard to recognize enemies by type at first, but if you pay close attention, each enemy has a distinct color scheme that tells you their type. Use that to your advantage to make sure you’re using the right Valkyries against the right foes.

Posted by Jessica Fisher on February 23rd, 2015

Kiloo has released a teaser trailer for their upcoming game, Stormblades. The game is a slashing beat em' up where you become a tribal warrior going through his rite of passage. You'll be exploring ancient ruins and discovering lost relics as you bring your sword to bear against an onslaught of enemies.

Stormblades is still in the beta-testing phase, but they expect a late March release. And if the trailer isn't enough for you, AppSpy has also posted a hands-on video for your enjoyment.

Marvel Contest of Champions Announced at Comic-Con

Posted by Jennifer Allen on July 28th, 2014

Announced over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con was the fairly exciting looking Marvel Contest of Champions.

Set to be released this Fall, the game hopes to be an immersive beat-em-up of sorts, offering players the chance to fight their way through various iconic locations from the Marvel Universe. You'll be able to collect your favorite heroes and villains such as Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, and Thor.

The title comes from Kabam, best known for titles such as The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth and Fast & Furious 6: The Game, so expect Marvel Contest of Champions to be a free-to-play title when it hits the App Store later this year.

Check out the teaser trailer below.
