Mordheim: Warband Skirmish brings tabletop action to the small screen

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 25th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Legendary Games has just launched Mordheim: Warband Skirmish, a new turn-based action game for iOS and Android.

Using the central premise of Warhammer’s tabletop spin-off Mordheim, the game is set amongst the ruins of the eponymous city after its destruction by a comet. You control a group of scavengers scouring the rubble for valuable shards of space rock, but in the midst of a civil war, the city is fraught with danger. This danger is primarily posed by rival factions fighting over who should sit on the Emperor’s throne (I guess it must be really comfy or something).

Combat involves strategically taking out your opponents using the turn-based system, but it’s up to you what play-style you choose. You can go all Splinter Cell and hide in the shadows waiting for the right moment to loose an arrow, or go full Rambo and confront enemies head-on instead. The mercenary faction you align yourself with will partly determine your approach. There are three to choose from (with more promised as DLC), each boasting a slightly different skill base – the Reiklanders, the Marienburgers and the Middenheimers.

Rival warbands are controlled by players online, so you won’t necessarily get an easy ride. It’s down to you to customise and train your fighters so they’re ready to take on whoever’s lurking in Mordheim’s dodgy alleyways.

Legendary Games isn’t the first developer to adapt Warhammer lore into a mobile game. In fact, there’s a Warhammer spin on virtually every genre. But rather than awkwardly emulating Angry Birds or Clash of Clans, Mordheim: Warband Skirmish stays faithful to the turn-based strategy of Games Workshop’s tabletop triumph.

Whether you’re a Warhammer fan or just looking for a strategic action game to test your prowess online, you can download Mordheim: Warband Skirmish from the App Store and Google Play.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Only a month since the Easter update, VC Mobile is giving Creature Quest players another mother load of bonuses. This time it’s to celebrate Mother’s Day, observed during May in over 100 countries around the world.

The first perks to pick up in the update are the check-in rewards. From May 11-18, logging in to Creature Quest daily gets you loot including tokens, battle coins, essence and energy. When you log in, you’ll also notice the loading and homepage screens have been adorned with gifts and flowers in honour of Mother’s Day.

There’s a new quest called Mommy Meowgic to complete, too, during which you’ll barter with a brand new Legendary creature – the Sphinx. You’re rewarded for finishing the quest with a chance of acquiring a Rare, Epic or Legendary critters including a Lizard Man Archer, and Mummy. The quest is only available for a limited time, so be quick.

If you want to net yourself a Sphinx, you’ll have the chance to do so in the Mother’s Day Summon offers event. From May 12-18, any Diamond Summon has the chance of revealing a Sealed With A Kiss box. Inside will be 1 of 8 creatures – four Epic (Dark Elf, Griffin, Siren and Harpy) and four Legendary (Shadow Temptress, Medusa, Sorceress and Sphinx). Good luck!

Along with the seasonal events, VC Mobile has introduced a new time-saving feature. Quick Questing means you can skip to the end of a quest you’ve completed in the past, and still get some of the rewards. It’s not free, however, so make sure you have sufficient battle coins and energy if you want to use it – especially for more difficult quests.

If you’re looking for a colourful new RPG, you can join the ever-changing quest maps of Creature Quest by downloading it for free from Google Play and the App Store.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Though the terms “relaxing” and “challenging” might not win any competitions for being the next “fish and chips” or “rock and roll”, these act as the two core gameplay concepts for Infinity Games’ latest woodland puzzler: What, The Fox?, where it’s your task to ensure that no fox gets left behind.

Set against a soundtrack full of natural woodland sounds, What, The Fox? is a game that places emphasis on providing players with a tranquil yet head-scratching fox-filled adventure. In either story or infinity mode, What, The Fox? sets you the objective of helping each furry critter find their way home, achieved via swiping in the necessary direction of each next respective hole.

Don’t be fooled by the soothing sounds of leaves crunching and the wind blowing however, difficulty rises during every step of your journey, and later sleepy foxes require an even closer eye if you’re to succeed. Solve their charades, guide them into the holes, and work your mind. Doing so means you’ll be rewarded with a maximum 3 star rating, which in turn can unlock new game packages.

All of What, The Fox?’s 100 story levels and ones found within infinite mode can be resolved multiple ways, making it easy to find a fresh experience every time you wish to squeeze in a quick play session. Don’t see a clear path one way? Try another. The game provides more than enough opportunities for players to surprise themselves mentally.

Ready to try out what some are considering to be the most relaxing game of 2017 for yourself? What, The Fox? is free to download from both the Google Play and App Store now.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Thrill-seeking mobile players who’ve been craving a console-quality action-adventure might want to take note, with the recent release ofLegend of AbhiManYuiOS. Developers ACY Entertainment are hoping to create a lasting experience whilst letting players discover an Eastern setting not too often explored in gaming.

At its core, Legend of AbhiManYu (LoA) is a third-person action-adventure game with an emphasis on close quarter sword battles and unique archery gameplay, placing you in the role of the titular hero AbhiManYu who sets foot on the battlefield for the first time.

The developers have worked hard to deliver an epic experience to the game, with impressive 3D graphics, cinematic camera moves and a colossal 1,000 independent characters per scene.

5 major characters from the Indian epic Mahabharata story serve to form the basis of the game’s boss battles, with each boss equipped with special powers not found amongst regular foes - so it might just pay for budding combatants to take note and plan before claiming victory.

Besides letting you vanquish foes with sword and bow, LoA also looks to test your cunning, as enemies attempt to thwart your progress with challenging formations, such as Wave, Trident and Octopus to name just a few.

Equally spurring is LoA's cultured score, which like the game’s art style, takes its cues from the ancient Indian setting and aims to be the perfect accompaniment to the cinematic gameplay. The developers’ focus on providing a premium action-adventure experience is further displayed by the many fully rendered story cut-scenes LoA uses to progress its story.

Now’s your chance to enter an ancient land and face some of the mightiest warriors from historic lore, Legend of AbhiManYu is available to download for iOS devices ($4.99)) with an Android release expected in the next few weeks.

Get up to speed with everything you need to know in MU Origin’s latest update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 26th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

In case you haven’t heard, MU Origin just got a colossal new update with new all-server events, battle modes, and systems making their way to the land of MU. Here’s a handy guide to everything you need to know about the latest content.

Brand new PVP mode – Battlefield of Heroes

To kick things off, there’s the new all-server PVP battle event, Battlefield of Heroes. Now, an RPG revamping its battle modes here and there might not seem like anything new – but in the land of MU things tend to be a little more epic. Pushing the boundaries of graphics capabilities and server limitations is the name of the game in MU Origin, and it’s perfectly exemplified in this gargantuan 100 player team battle event, fully realised in stunning 3D visuals.

Split into one of two teams, you’ll be competing against up to 50 other warriors, battling to gain points by vanquishing your opponents, hunting for bosses, and mining precious items. Every point you pick up brings the promise of better rewards so be sure to register from 21-00-21:25 every Tuesday and Friday to get involved in the action.

Battle Core Event

Another exciting all-server event served up in the latest update is Battle Core – a mad dash race for teams to reach 1,000 points in order to emerge victorious. There will be plenty of rewards for those that do, with large amounts of EXP, fame points, and achievement points earned for every victory. At the same token, rewards will diminish significantly after every loss, so there’s no room for any shirking.

To keep all things fair and competitive, the Battle Core system will assess the ability of each team to make sure that their opponents will be evenly matched, so it’s going to take brains as well as brawn to win.

Server Dungeons – ‘Harmageddon’ and ’Elemental War’

Team up with players from all over the world to take on evil in these two new all-server dungeons. These certainly aren’t to be taken lightly, with victory in Harmageddon only being achievable by defeating the final boss in under 15 minutes – and to get that far you will have to battle past the Four Knights in order to summon him.

Elemental War is no picnic either, with victory achieved only after destroying evil hordes one after the other. So what’s so hard about that you ask? Well, there are over 30 waves of them in total, and each get progressively more difficult with every one that you dispatch. On top of that, you’ll be battling against the clock as well – if there are any monsters left standing when the time limit expires then the dungeon will end, and so will your chance to pick up those precious rewards.

Upgrade your characters with the new Soul Stone and Relic Systems

Besides adding in some glorious new ways of engaging in combat, the latest update to MU Origin also provides some new and unique systems to upgrading your character and gaining buffs.
The Soul Stone system will task you with finding one of three different types of stone – Orbium, Tris, and Quadion – which when used and combined together in various ways will grant elemental stats to your character.

These precious stones can be found by mining for them using Diamonds and the mysterious Soul Dust – which can be obtained in the Elemental War dungeon and Battlefield of Heroes event.

The Relic system will provide even more ways to boost your character by piecing together the fabled Relics – Golden Grail, Golden Crown, Golden Sword, and Golden Scripture – from 6 different pieces. To get the benefits from the pieces, you’ll need to enhance them using fragments, which you can find in the Harmageddon dungeon and Battlefield of heroes event. Do all of that and you’re on your way to receiving some really powerful boosts to your stats.

But that’s not all...

Besides the big events and fancy new stat systems, you’ll find improvements in many more areas of the game. In-game items have had their stack limits significantly raised, three brand new pets have been introduced, the max equipment enhance level and Zodiac levels have been boosted, and there’s also a new costume system to give your character a fresh new look too. Besides all this, MU Origin is even letting you cut a few corners here and there with the Daily Benefits system, which allows you to instantly clear daily tasks.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on March 30th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Sharpen your weapons -- Dynasty Blades is back with new and improved hack n’ slash stylings. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms-inspired action MMORPG introduces a bunch of fun new features in its latest update.

For the uninitiated, Dynasty Blades allows you to create your own legendary hero before sending them into battle against leagues of enemy fighters. It’s a game of fast-paced action, as you create combos in feats of strength and military might.

The latest update, version 2.3, introduces a new hero in the form of Zhang He, one of the Five Generals of Wei. Zhang He is a mage that controls the power of fire.

If slinging fireballs doesn’t excite you, perhaps you’ll be happier to learn that Dynasty Blades is also introducing mounts in today’s update. Now you can ride into battle astride a horse, tiger, jaguar, or many other beasties that can also give you helpful stat buffs.

Two new weekly events are being added to the game’s calendar, as well. The Drop & Exchange event will boost the likelihood you’ll receive rare items for clearing a stage, while the Treasure Plunder event allows you to enter a lottery for some truly excellent prizes.

All told, that’s a pretty hefty update. On top of the fresh content, Dynasty Blades is getting a few system tweaks to ensure the game runs smoothly. Among them, you’ll be able to buy back lost resources from the day before for a small sum of gold or diamonds.

If you want to see what all of the excitement is about, you can find Dynasty Blades on both iOS and Android.

Leap to victory in Nexx Studios new platformer Temple Jump

Posted by 148Apps Staff on March 23rd, 2017

You’re always a hop, skip, and a jump away from a fiery death in Temple Jump, a new platformer-cum-endless runner from Nexx Studio. It’s out now on both iOS and Android if you’re an adventurer seeking treasure in a crumbling, pixel-laden temple.

You play as an adorable “jumper” blob, and there are 33 to collect in all, each with their own distinct design and personality. Guide your jumper through the perilous temple in a quest for the many sparkling gems scattered throughout its cavernous halls. Simply hold your thumb on the screen to charge up a jump and release to fall back to the next platform.

The action plays out across 12 challenge mode levels, though uncovering golden wings teleports you to alternative game modes. Once you can dodge Temple Jump’s many spike traps, falling platforms, and jumping fire balls, you can give endless mode a go. Challenge yourself to see how far you can make it through the temple before inevitably meeting your doom. Be on the lookout for a hidden bonus level, too.

Temple Jump is available to download now from the App Store and Google Play.
