Gameloft has just unveiled Dungeon Hunter 5, a new addition to their mobile hack ‘n’ slash franchise. Playing as a ‘common-guy’ bounty hunter following on from the events of Dungeon Hunter 4, the game is set to feature improved graphics, new animations ‘built from the ground up’, and all new weapons and effects.

Players will also be the owners of their own dungeon ‘hideouts’ in the new multiplayer mode, where they’ll aim to defend their loot whilst stealing from others. Each hideout is designed by the player, with the ultimate goal of an attacker being to defeat the owner of the hideout at the end and claim some of their loot as their own. This loot can then be used in the new weapon fusing system, which allows players to combine and level-up their weaponry.

Dungeon Hunter 5 is set to slash its way onto the App Store later this year. Players can pre-register for the game now, which gives them the opportunity to work toward exclusive launch day items including concept art and a minion to help protect their loot.

In Gameloft‘s upcoming Dragon Mania Legends, your goal is to become the best dragon breeder in all of Dragolandia. Hatch, raise, and train your adorable baby dragon for battle with invading Vikings. There are over 100 species of dragons to breed and you’ll be able to test out their strength against other players in the Arena. 

You’ll start out on your own island, building up a training ground for your dragon, but when your dragon is ready to fight you can start exploring the many areas available to you. Dragon Mania Legends looks like a cute addiction to the Gameloft catalog.

Adopt your baby dragon when Dragon Mania Legends launches tomorrow.

Hey there, town-builders:
Want to know what we thought about the Ice Age team’s adventures in environmental preservation? Check out our Ice Age Adventures Review!

While we may have to wait a few years before the next ‘Ice Age’ movie, Ice Age Adventures lets fans pass the time with Sid, Manny, and Diego on the go. The great thaw has caused the world to crack, leaving friends stranded and the community in disarray. Here are some tips for saving everybody and making the village as good as new. Who else is going to rescue Ray Romano?

The Meltdown

ice age adventures 5
You’ll spend most of your time exploring the different islands for treasures and members of the village.

  • You’ll need to clear paths to get around. As your party expands, you’ll be able to clear more obstacles. Sid cuts trees, Manny tramples rocks, and Diego fights off enemy pirates. However, this also consumes your berry reserves faster.
  • Clearing paths gives you tons of shells – another currency for store. Finding clams, particularly golden clams, is also a great way to gain resources.
  • A few times a day you can enter the various caves on the islands. They provide everything from extremely valuable golden acorns to chances to rescue even more lost baby animals.
  • Rescuing a member of the herd typically involves playing a short mini-game like sledding downhill or solving a match-3 puzzle. Take them seriously though, because failure leads to a lengthy wait before the next chance to try again.
  • To unlock more parts of the map, you’ll occasionally have to gather items like vines and torches for friendly characters. Caves and shells are usually the best places to look. You’ll have to complete most of each island’s missions before moving onto the next one.
  • You can always go back to past islands to find things you may have missed or enter caves again for the chance to win more prizes.

    Thought evil dragons were just a myth? Well they’re back in Dungeon Gems. And even though the game will seem quite familiar to fans of Puzzles & Dragons, it still has intricacies of its own to master. So gather an elite team of elemental heroes to take down the monsters one dungeon at a time. Here’s how.

    Fight Fire with Fire, or Water, or Wood…

    dungeongems_05dungeongems_04

  • Basic attacks are launched by matching elemental gems like a puzzle game. You don’t even need to match three, just one will suffice. However, longer combos create more powerful attacks. Some even create special gems that clear a single element from the board, including new ones that cycle in to replace the old, doling out a massive assault.
  • Each element has different strengths and weaknesses. Fire beats wood but is weak against water while light and dark both beat each other. Be sure to target enemies by touching them so attacks can have the most impact.
  • Some enemies have longer waiting periods between turns. Check the number next to them and use any extra turns you may have to deal more damage or heal yourself by linking heart gems.
  • Defeating enemies grants you action points. These can be used to activate special skills or link separate elements together for huge, multi-elemental attacks.

  • New details have been revealed about Modern Combat 5: Blackout‘s graphical prowess.

    The game is set to use a feature rarely seen on mobile titles. It’s called Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (or SSAO for short) and is a rendering technique that results in more realistic shadows. What that means for us is that the game looks better and particularly impressive for an iOS title!

    Check out the GIF below that highlights just what to expect.

    The game is also set to include many other graphical enhancements such as:

    • Eye adaptation & Bloom – exposure adjusts in a more realistic manner when moving between light and dark areas
    • Soft particles – improved interactions of particles with surrounding geometry
    • Underwater distort and caustics – reproduces realistic water effects
    • Real-time character shadows – characters cast shadows on geometry in real time
    • Heat-haze – air distortion due to muzzle heating after shooting
    • Depth of Field – cinematic effect that makes the background appear out of focus so that certain characters or objects in the foreground step more into focus

    Modern Combat 5: Blackout is set for release later this Summer.

    Impressively titled, Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game, is currently on sale and will cost you a grand total of absolutely nothing.

    We weren’t entirely impressed by it upon first release in April, mostly because it’s a little repetitive. Having said that, for free, what have you got to lose? If you’re like me and a sucker for blockbuster movie tie-ins, you’ll probably find something to enjoy here.

    We’re not entirely sure why it’s on sale or for how long, so grab it quickly while you’re thinking about it!
