HeroCraft has announced that they are working on a new game, called Tempest. It will be a free-to-play pirate RPG, coming out later this year.
Tempest is centered around seizing merchant ships, attacking sea forts, and battling warships. Each ship has different battle tactics and can be customized from the flag to the figurehead. Players will be able to equip their ship with a variety of weapons such as cannons, mortars, and even flame throwers.
There will be quests that require magic artifacts and will pit the player against fearsome foes like the Kraken. If that wasn’t enough, you will also be able to play in co-op multiplayer combat. Players on mobile devices and PC owners will be able to play against each other in these exciting sea battles.
So don your best Captain’s hat and strap on a parrot, Tempest will be coming out soon for iOS.
A free campaign ‘In Praise of Odin!’ consists of 9 missions, in which you will take part in the Vikings’ bloody wars in Scandinavia and Mainland Europe.
* You will be able to capture Paris, invade England and Southern Italy.
* With the great Rollo you will found the Normandy dukedom.
* In Oleg the Prophet’s campaign you will gain Kiev
Additionally, there are four new historical scenarios:
*In the bloody ‘Battle of Brávellir’ you will defeat the legendary Harald Wartooth, the King of Danes and Swedes.
*In a huge scenario called ‘Vikings’ Wars’ you will be able to keep half of Europe in fear and make them look to the seas in terror.
*Playing as Harald Fairhair in the ‘Unification of Norway’ you will set the Norse crown atop your head.
*As Cnut the Great you will win the war against Norway and Sweden and establish power over these lands
Medieval Wars is available for free on the App Store.

HeroCraft has released its latest strategy title to the App Store. Medieval Wars: Strategy & Tactics comes with a free and premium version so players can test the waters before committing to the premium price. Players control the armies of England, France, and the Crusaders in three campaigns set in medieval history.
The free version allows users to play three missions from the England campaign, one Hotseat mode map, and one historical game scenario. The premium version comes with 16 total missions and four game scenarios.
HeroCraft has released an announcement trailer for their upcoming turn-based card collecting game, Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. Players will build their own decks and lead their squad into tactical combat by using the cards they collect. This free-to-play title is expected to be released sometime around Q2 of 2014.
HeroCraft has launched a new premium version of its strategic and tactical game, Strategy & Tactics: World War II Deluxe! Get ready to strategize throughout 5 historical campaigns and 2 new special campaigns, which includes USSR and USA confrontations in an alternative history.
This is the perfect version for those who like the free version of the game but hate the in-app purchases. There are no IAP here! Now go be the tactician you are and enjoy the campaigns and the full global multiplayer mode!
Lords of Discord is a new turn-based strategy game that just began its Kickstarter campaign. It takes place in a fantasy world where Humans and Demons battle it out. There are also the familiar orcs, giant spiders, and other nefarious creatures.
Players can play as humans or demons in two campaigns that feature 12 missions each. There is also a character development system for each race with around 30 units each. Get a glimpse of battle in the trailer below!
The big game is just around the corner and you must do everything you can to win! Actually, no, you must do all kinds of goofy things instead in this upcoming iOS title, FootLoL: Epic Fail League.
It’s up to you to sabotage the football (soccer) match by using tools such as bombs, aliens, machine guns, rabid cows, and more so that you can score big on cash instead of in the game. You see, you take the role of a bookmaker and you’ll need to have a certain score so that you can win the money. There are 60 levels of this, so get ready to use some crazy weapons to perform epic fails in order to get the cash!
Warhammer 40K has been around for years, but its recent spike in popularity has been great for introducing new players (and entirely new generations) to real Space Marines. And the licensing continues with Herocraft and Games Workshop‘s upcoming free-to-play iOS title Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf.
Space Wolf will be a combination of turn-based tactical combat and card collecting. Moves, weapons, and pretty much everything else is handled via cards while the action plays out in 3D. More powerful cards can be acquired through victory (glorious victory!), upgraded through the Iron Priest’s Forge, and presumably purchased with various forms of currency.
Follow the path of the Grey Hunter, Wolf Scout, Blood Claw, or Wolf Guard as you face-off against Word Bearers and Necrons in what is being described as “An epic campaign with branching storylines, spanning hostile environments on a far distant planet.” Personally, I can’t freaking wait.
Space Wolf will be coming to iOS (and Android and PC) sometime in 2014.
Scenario one, Race to Berlin, has players leading troops into the capital city of Berlin with the goal of occupying the city. Scenario two, The Soviet-Japanese War, lets the player take part in the Manchukuo and southern Sakhalin operations on the side of the Soviet troops.
The Enchanted Kingdom: Elisa’s Adventure puts players in a fairy-tale world full of dragons, magicians, and more. It’s a match 3 puzzle game with more than 50 levels full of mystery and riddles. There are also elements of hidden objects and other mini-games to keep players entertained.

Having never played either the iOS game Gibbets or the flash game Gibbets 2, I thought I’d best see what all the fuss is about before I announce that Gibbets 2 is set to hit the app store during Q2 next year.
I quickly learnt why the franchise has been played over 250 million times. It sucks up time in a manner that’s a sign of something truly special.
It’s a simple enough game. Each level comprises of a few people hanging from nooses and it’s the player’s job to cut them down by shooting arrows in their direction. Underneath that surface is a compelling game thanks to the keen physics engine within that means it’s vital to line up the shot and speed just right. Players are also provided with a limited number of arrows per level and are punished accordingly for taking too long or hitting the poor victims.
It’s great fun on the PC and I suspect it’ll be an ideal game for iOS with easy touch based controls and 30 levels promised.
Gibbets 2 is set for release sometime in Q2 2012. We’ll be sure to keep up to date on any developments.
