Puzzle to the Center of the Earth - Tips, Tricks, Strategies, and Cheats for Daring Spelunkers

Would you like to know what we thought of all this puzzling-around the deep recesses of the planet? Check out our Puzzle to the Center of the Earth review!

Puzzle to the Center of the Earth is a surprisingly deep and challenging puzzle platformer. Here are a few tips for players looking to stay alive while down in the depths.

Energy Management is Key


  • Once you start using formulas, make sure you build combos of blocks toward your character and not away - The catalyst energy that allows for formula usage always drops at the end of a string of six blocks, so if you start linking blocks as far away as possible and move in, they are easier to get (see above). The combo on the left will end up dropping the red catalyst crystal in a hard-to-reach place significantly further down into the cavern whereas the combo on the right, which is the same exact structure, will drop the crystal right at your feet.

  • Use moves wisely - Players begin every level with 20 energy and it costs 1 energy to interact with any amount of blocks. This means that dropping blocks or linking 4, 5, or 6 blocks all costs 1 energy. Since the ultimate goal is at the bottom of each level, using 1 energy to dig as far down as possible is generally a good strategy - at least in the beginning.

  • Look for energy blocks - To help recoup energy, there are blocks in the world that have pieces of energy in them. These energy blocks give players 4 energy. Therefore, it's not necessarily worth going out of the way to mine an energy block if it costs more than 4 energy to get.

Phantom Rift - Tips, Tricks, Strategies, and Cheats for Traveling Through the Rift

Hello, Wanderers:
Want to see what we thought about exploring the dimension between life and death? Check out our Phantom Rift review!

Phantom Rift from Foursaken Media is a deep adventure/role-playing game that centers around intense battles with enemy monsters. It plays a good deal like Capcom's Mega Man Battle Network, which thrived on the Game Boy Advance, and veterans of that series should be able to sink right into Foursaken's title.

But that doesn't mean surviving the Rift is easy. Here are some tips that will help keep you alive in this strange, dark world.

Starting Out


  • The questions at the beginning of the game seem to influence the magic spells you receive - When you begin playing Phantom Rift, you're asked a brief series of questions about who you are. Do you like fighting with friends, or alone? Do you prefer fighting close-up, or from afar? The way in which you answer these questions seems to impact which spells you start the game with. For instance, if you say you prefer fighting up close, you should start off with an assortment of sword spells.

  • Stuck? Talk to Wispin - Wispin is your guide in the Rift. If you're unsure of what to do next, tap on him to chat. He can help light the way. [Editor's Note: *rimshot*]

  • Use energy sparingly - Early in Phantom Rift, you receive a ring that restores health at the cost of 30 energy. This is a valuable tool, and can mean the difference between life and death. That said, energy is very valuable as it's also used to buy spells, weapons, and armor. Instead of healing yourself with energy-consuming items, try restoring your health in-battle using spells.

Zap! Pow! Become a Badass Wizard in Phantom Rift this September

Posted by Jessica Fisher on July 30th, 2014

Phantom Rift by Foursaken Media, is an adventure/RPG where players control a powerful wizard who has become lost in the Phantom Rift: a dark place full of man-eating monsters. Wizards will be tasked with side quests as they explore the world and meet NPCs.

A player's wizard is fully customizable with a full array of equipment. The five levels of rarity with passive abilities and different stats mean plenty of different combinations for collectors.

The innovation of Phantom Rift is its battle system. Similar to a card-based battle, players have a spell pouch that can hold up to 30 of the 120 unique spells that can be found in the game. Players can equip their wizard with different spells to form different strategies, focusing on things like elemental magic or summoning.

The game also has multiplayer integration. Wizards can fight in PvP battles and win spells from their enemies' pouch as trophies.

Foursaken Media is shooting for a September release for Phantom Rift.

Everyone's favorite (or not, because of free will and all that) bug-themed action defense game has received a sizable new update from the "Man Gods."

In addition to the various tweaks and balancing changes (listed below), an entirely new game mode with over 20 missions has been introduced.

It also includes a new hero (the Garden Beetle), new power-ups, and makes use of the newly-introduced Laser turret.

• Balanced turret upgrade prices
• Balanced stun scroll effect on high rate of fire heroes

• Sniper Turret bullets move much faster, but they no longer target heroes in versus mode
• Revamped mission system to allow many more mission choices and options at once
• Fixed an issue with versus local multiplayer
• Miscellaneous bug fixes

Block Fortress War is Set to Bring a Mix of MOBA, RTS, and Block Building Gameplay To iOS This December

Posted by Andrew Stevens on October 15th, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Block Fortress War is coming soon, bringing a redesigned spin-off of the original Block Fortress. In a forum post on Touch Arcade, Foursaken Media said that it blends MOBA, RTS, and block-building gameplay together in both single and multiplayer modes. It features four different races that each have their own traits and abilities, and each race has three unique heroes to choose from.

Once players get themselves in combat, they'll send their squads out to build key resources on the map and fortify them with blocks and turrets. Whoever gains control of the map is more likely to gather all the resources to use in destroying the enemy's base.

Block Fortress War is set for a tentative release in December of this year.
