Turn-based fantasy dungeon crawler, Rogue Hearts, is available now on iOS and Android

Seamlessly melding dungeon crawling, turn-based battles, and rogue-lite elements might seem like a tough task, but that’s exactly the kind of experience players can look forward to when playing Ninetail Games' new Fantasy RPG: Rogue Hearts.

Rogue Hearts seeks to capture the same dungeon crawling greatness popularised by classics like Baldur’s Gate and Diablo, with players traversing from room to room with their party, battling monsters, collecting items, and leveling up along the way.

The game emphasises direct character control with a more strategic and forward-thinking approach to combat rather than automatic battling. Battles take place on a grid in classic turn-based fashion allowing players to thwart enemies not just head-on, but from the back and sides too. Such tactics are particularly handy when taking on many of the game's bosses like the cave troll, whereby frontal attacks are useless.

There’s plenty to see and do in Rogue Hearts long after the credits to the main campaign roll. ‘Nightmare’ iterations of bosses, for example, offer players a much defter challenge, one which is easily thwarted the more items you acquire and levels you increase.

Rogue Hearts’ engaging turn-based gameplay and randomised dungeons are available to experience now on both the Google Play and App Store.

This old-school dungeon-crawler is a little too rough around the edges and leaves out a few too many modern conveniences.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 22nd, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Outcast Odyssey is a deep and strategic card battler on iOS and Android that challenges you to collect over 300 cards and build a mighty deck out of them.

There's a massive single player campaign to battle your way through, with over 40 islands full of hidden treasures, unique enemies, and challenging dungeons. Bosses lurk at the end of these, and you'll need all of your skills if you want to succeed.

Then there's PvP where your deck - and abilities - will be put to the test. This is played in the arena, where you can also join a guild and talk tactics with your fellow players.

We spoke to Erik Wahlberg, Live Producer at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., to find out which games inspired Outcast Odyssey, what tips he would give to new players, and what the team would change if they could start over.

Outcast Odyssey is hybrid mix of collectable card games (CCGs) and dungeon crawlers out now on iOS and Android.

It contains a lengthy single player campaign with over 40 islands to explore and battle through. Each of these has its very own dungeon to raid, as well as hidden treasure to find and unique enemies to battle.

You're going to need a strong deck if you plan on walking away from a fight though. Thankfully, there are over 300 cards to collect, all of which can be evolved and fused to strengthen them for the battles ahead.
