SettleForge is a single-player board game where players take on the role of the king as they try to reinvigorate their country's economy. In puzzle game fashion, players must place hexagonal tiles with different buildings on them, but you must keep in mind building regulations and economical dependencies to find the best locations. Will your nation prosper. Will your subjects rejoice? That is for you to decide.
SettleForge supports DICE+, a digital game controller meant to simulate rolling a die. It hooks up via Bluetooth and uses motion detectors to know what you've rolled. You can pick up a DICE+ controller on their website for $39.99
While there is no official release date as of yet, you can follow their updates on the SettleForge Facebook page.
Quarriors! is adding in a new expansion pack called "Quarmageddon" to the game, and to mark the release of this expansion the app is going free for a limited time. The expansion pack costs $1.99, so this means the game and new expansion are available for a total of $1.99 for a short while.
Quarrors! is the mobile version of the board-based dice-building game of the same name. It is a faithful rendition, as our review late last year noted.
The game is available on the App Sore; it returns to regular price ($3.99) next week on March 20.
We sat down with Thomas Bleyer of Ravensburger, the veteran of board games both analog and digital, for a quick coffee meeting this morning. We took an early look at Las Vegas, a new game from the studio that involves dice and a frenetic pace. Check the VIne video below for a sneak peek, and be ready to check the full game out in a couple of months.
Elder Sign: Omens, winner of an Editor’s Choice award here at 148Apps, just received a major update last week with new additions to the game as well as options and bug fixes.
This new update makes an entirely new campaign, the Cthulhu campaign, available through an in-app purchase. The new campaign contains over 30 new adventures, ten new monsters, and four new investigators. An unlockable bonus investigator is also available. The new map in the campaign includes new gameplay features for Elder Sign: Omens. Also, available as an in-app purchase, new Ancient Ones are for sale.
In addition to the in-app purchasable campaign, a free, Yig campaign has been released with this update. Another unlockable investigator is available (different from the one with the paid campaign).
A few options have been added like skipping transitions, audio fading, and a low resolution option (likely for older iOS devices struggling to run the higher-end graphics).
Elder Sign: Omens is based on a dice game where investigators work to keep powerful Ancient Ones at bay, preventing ancient evil from invading our world through the museum’s exhibits.
