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.

Quarriors Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Quarriors is a faithful adaptation of the table-top game, but doesn’t *quite* hit all the right notes.

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.

MotionX Dice Plus

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
When creating dice you gradually learn what looks best. When something is produced that looks exceptional in motion, it's a great feeling. I can see this being fun for everyone from young children to fandom enthusiasts to grandmothers who'd rather look at their darlings than standard pips on monopoly dice.

Aw Craps!

Aw Craps!

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Aw, Craps is an extremely well executed craps game that gives you everything needed to become an expert. The graphics are nice, the interface is simple, and the dice rolling is a thing of beauty. It does sadden me though that the drink lady only comes around in the real life version... maybe that's something that they will fix on the next iPhone.

WordFu is the latest offering from ngmoco, the makers of Rolando and Topple. It's a dice-based, kung fu-themed word game that requires you to assemble words from the letters you roll. The addicting and surprisingly deep gameplay make WordFu one of the best word games that we've seen in a while.

Touchmaster Volume 1

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
The Touchmaster series is generally quite good on the Nintendo DS platform, and while the games here are also good, there isn't as much variety present. Furthermore, while the games Midway has included aren't all that exciting, if you are a puzzle fan you'll definitely find something here to like.

MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition

MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition includes updated properties which are far more expensive than those in the classic game. It takes some getting used to not having Boardwalk and Ventura, for example, but Instanbul and London serve as suitable substitues. The game loads quickly, looks great, and generally plays great. Includes modes for one player, multiple players by passing the iPhone around, as well as wifi multi-play (on the same router).
