Pokemon Quest iOS screenshot - A Bellsprout

After Pokemon Quest snuck out on Nintendo Switch, we had to wait a surprisingly short amoung of time before getting it on iOS and Android. I mean, we knew it was coming, but you'd never know if we'd only be waiting a month or six to get our hands on the game.

If you're looking for a full RPG you won't find it here, sorry chaps. This one's a free to play title that's not quite the style of Pokemon you'd recognise. It may have all of the fan-favourites from Red and Blue, but they're – er – blockier, so there are a few new things to learn.

Not to worry, though! Here's a handy ol' guide to walk you through the basics so you can command an epic team and collect all of the delicious, shiny loot.

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 25th, 2018

Knights Chronicle is a pretty great turn-based rpg, but it's free-to-play mechanics are pretty tough to deal with. In particular, the use of a stamina meter to limit the amount of times you can play the game in one session can be a real bummer. The easiest way around this issue–of course–is to spend some money on the game for Stamina Potions to let you play more of the game more often. But, if you're like me and don't want to spend a penny on Knights Chronicle, here are a few ways to can circumvent this pesky, restrictive system.

BlazeFury guide - How to wrap your mind around this odd shmup

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 12th, 2018

BlazeFury is a unique take on the shmup genre, so it’s pretty easy to be confused about how you should play it. Fear not though, dear reader. These tips below will make you a dogfighting champion in no time.

Missiles are the best

The best way to start progressing quickly in BlazeFury is to invest in the right weapons. Since enemies get harder and harder, and there’s no real way to fight back without upgrading your own arsenal, you want to be sure you’re making the best investments possible.

From my experience, the missiles are the best weapon for you to unlock and continuously upgrade. Not only do they pack a punch against enemies, but they also do a great deal of splash damage, which can help you take down enemies that you aren’t even targeting.

Super Hydorah guide - How to straighten up and fly right

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 11th, 2018

Super Hydorah is an old-school shooter in almost every way imaginable. This means that it can be quite tough and unforgiving at times. If you find yourself struggling in the game, feel free to try out some of these tips to help you have a better time with it.

Don't be afraid of Easy Mode

Upon learning that Super Hydorah has an Easy Mode, you might reflexively avoid it and go with the game's Normal Mode, but this is most likely a mistake. Unless you are a seasoned shooter player or you've already been through Super Hydorah once, Easy Mode is the way to go.

Easy Mode grants you a rechargable shield, which can allow you to get further into levels more easily. You may not rack up quite as much score, but going through Super Hydorah on an easier difficulty can definitely help prepare you for subsequent runs on Normal Mode.
