Build a kingdom of your own with the new Creature Quest update

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The folks at VC Mobile have been diligent in unloading regular fresh content for their gacha RPG, Creature Quest, but now they’re taking things to an entirely new level with the game’s September update. Introducing a kingdom-building feature, a new dungeon system, and loads of new events, now’s a great time to jump back into the action or start anew.

The most exciting news is, of course, the Kingdoms feature. At long last, players are now free to build their own mini-kingdoms in Creature Quest. There are dozens of buildings to purchase and build. Once your little structures are up and running, you can assign a creature to each of your buildings, and they’ll help you run things. Building a Kingdom is a perfect opportunity to further strengthen your creatures and their abilities.

Dungeons have also gotten an important overhaul. Gold and silver tier players will now be able to fill out multiple dungeons. If you fill out multiple dungeons completely, you’ll get some valuable defense bonuses for your creatures. The game will choose one dungeon from a player with multiple dungeons at random for opponents to face. The rewards are great, and we expect you’ll enjoy the Dungeons’ new look.

VC Mobile has also implemented new ways to get creatures with more dots. You’ll now be able to perform Combo Dot Fusion, allowing you to breed creatures who have fewer dots with those that have more to create more powerful versions of your weaker creatures. It’s a great way to bolster your collection.

In addition to all of that, there are a lot of new events happening this month, including all new Summon events. Join in the new Seasonal Quest, Class Mateys, from September 18th to October 1st, and be sure to catch the “School of Hard Knocks” Summon Event for a chance to see the new Legendary Creature, Asura, from September 29th to October 1st.

We hope you’re prepared for a new season of fresh Creature Quest fun, whether you’re a new or returning player. There’s never been a better time to join in and you can find Creature Quest free to download on Google Play, the App Store, and Amazon App Store.

CSR Racing 2: How to master Live Races

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on August 11th, 2017

Getting better at racing the AI in CSR Racing 2 is a pretty straightforward process. You run enough races with a particular car to get its shift timing down, continually improve it by buying upgrades whenever you can, and add any fusion parts you grab along the way.

Tuning adds another dimension to the whole affair, but not enough to significantly throw you off course. If you just keep plowing ahead, you'll be able to take down all the crews in the game eventually and figure out what happened to your friends' stolen cars.

The Live Race mode, however, is a different beast. In contrast to some other mobile racing games, it provides CSR Racing 2 with a true multiplayer experience, allowing you to race head to head with a live human opponent at any time (or at least any time the servers are functioning properly).

Tower Defense Generals is now available for iOS

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If you’re a fan of games like Kingdom Rush and Plants vs. Zombies, Gamespire’s Tower Defense Generals should keep your taste for tower defence ticking over. Arriving on Android earlier this year, the game has now launched on iOS, so it’s good news for the Apple army.

Tower Defense Generals stays true to the tried-and-tested formula of TD games. You’re trusted with keeping a colony safe from invading enemies. You do that by deploying defensive tower units, equipped with turrets unleashing everything from lasers to missiles at whatever comes your way. Use the 12 different towers available strategically to stop each wave of baddies breaching the colony gate. Each time you blow an enemy unit to pieces, you’re rewarded with dollars to spend on upgrades. Let one unit slip by intact and roll into the colony compound, though, and you’ll lose a life. Lose all your lives and its mission over.

There are 20 types of enemy unit keen to see you fail, so you’ve got to use your towers, upgrades and reinforcements wisely during the 26 levels. Tower Defense Generals has three difficult levels so you can ramp up the challenge if you’re after a real battle. Mission terrains vary from sun-baked desert to chilly tundra, all rendered in high definition 3D.

Do your civic duty and save the colony from marauding militants by downloading Tower Defense Generals and blowing them to kingdom come. You can download it for free on Android - and now iOS too.

Bowmasters character guide: All the archers you could ever want

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on August 10th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

I don't know much about archery in real life, meaning if there's an apocalypse that leaves us having to hunt food without firearms, I won't be much help. But I've always loved archery in comics, movies, and video games, which is one of the reasons I love Bowmasters.

The game's dark humor and silly gore (if there is such a thing) help a lot too. Most of all, I just want to collect all the different characters and put them all through their paces, even if that means they'll all end up dying bloody deaths dozens of times over. C'est la vie, right?

A few new ones were added to the mix in a recent update, meaning there are now more options than ever for your arrow-shooting pleasure. Here's the entire list of Bowmasters in one handy character guide.

Drag racing is devilishly destructive in Carmageddon: Crashers, available now on iOS and Android

Posted by 148Apps Staff on August 7th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Fans of cars that crash and bash will want to take note from today, as the latest entry in the cult-classic Carmageddon series races its way back onto smartphone screens. Developed by the same team who introduced us to the original controversial car craziness back in the PlayStation One era, Carmageddon: Crashers seeks to reinvent the dreary drag-racing genre once and for all.

Tasking players to work their way up through the ranks of the Crashers League, in this particular drag racer having a death wish might just come in handy. You see, rather than start alongside one another, Carmageddon: Crashers has its players start at opposite ends of the drag strip, and race straight at one another. Your only hope is to put pedal to the metal, and let the smashtastic action come forth.

Helping you vanquish any vehicle in your path is a whole host of power ups, which, if used correctly, can help to boost any car’s impact force. This is in addition to a slew of shiny visual enhancements that are waiting to be unlocked. But be warned, once going bonnet to bonnet with Carmageddon: Crashers’ various mini and zone bosses, they might not stay shiny for long.

The game pushes the potential of mobile graphical capability firmly to the limit, rendering a wild variety of classic collectable Carmageddon cars in full 3D to help bring players closer to the tyre-squealing action. It’s drag racing with a difference, tasking players to wreck or be wrecked.

Embrace your inner speed demon from today, Carmageddon: Crashers is available for free now on iOS and Android devices.

Knight Fever Beginner’s Guide - how to hack and slash your way to victory

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 28th, 2017

Knight Fever is a thrilling new mobile RPG from Webzen, featuring colorful pixelated sprites and some of the most innovative combat we’ve seen in modern RPGs to date. It’s full of swords and sorcery and other fantastical feats.

Given the game’s unique, multi-level gameplay, though, you might need some help mastering the game. That’s where we come in. We’ve got some pro-tips to help you build a master fighter, maximize your skills, collect rare items, and more. Off we go!

Characters and Skills

Each of your heroes has unique abilities that can be used to your advantage in the heat of battle.

Use Meow’s Bloodcurdling Shout to damage and destroy traps before they become a problem. Ecst’s Revenge ability can blast through barriers and shields, damaging even the toughest foes. Or use Enya’s Quackquack skill to learn an additional skill after levelling up. Don’t forget that Khrat can hit three lanes at once, which is perfect if you’re being swarmed by monsters. The possibilities are nearly endless.

It’s important to experiment with different combinations of heroes. This will help you clear stages you may be having trouble with.

The Tower of Fame

The Tower of Fame, should you choose to take on this special challenge, has some special features you won’t find in normal stages.

Remember that you can taunt monsters into the Recovery Lane in the Tower of Fame, and that you can enter the Tower as soon as you clear the “Butcher” quest.

Spend some time in this special dungeon and you’ll be rewarded handsomely with gems and other useful items.

Items

Items are essential for adventurers out in the field, and there are some handy tricks to help you kit yourself out. Take every opportunity you can to watch ads -- it’s a fantastic way to get some free cubes.

You also have the chance to win a legendary item every four hours by visiting the Peddler. The Weekly Login Book provides another chance for exclusive items simply by logging into the game each day.

Taking all of this free stuff is well and good, but the generous are well-rewarded, too. Send a Gift Box along to one of your friends in the game, and you’ll receive one too. Now that’s a pretty swell deal.

Leveling Up and Progress

Because all of your heroes have such useful abilities, it’s a good idea to level all of them up equally. Then, if you want to change up your party for a new strategy, you won’t be weakened by lower-levelled characters you may have neglected.

To ease the leveling-up process, you can use the GO button in the Quests menu to teleport to your desired stage. It makes grinding much more hassle-free. Don’t forget that your Cookies will be completely refilled if your Party Level increases, too.

Once you reach level 10, you’ll need an additive to continue enhancing your equipment, though, so plan accordingly.

As you become tougher, you’ll have access to fresh challenges that offer even more impressive rewards. Once you finish a chapter in Normal Mode, and you can go back and try it on Hard Mode for added bonuses.

Last, but certainly not least, if you get your VIP level high enough, you’ll have access to Bonus hero challenge counts in the Gold Dungeon, which, yes, will net you much more gold.

Knight Fever definitely doesn’t skimp on the content, and there’s a grand journey ahead of you if you want to become the ultimate hero. Use our tips to level up and collect rare weapons, and you’ll be leading the pack in good time. Happy questing!

MU Origin celebrates its first birthday with presents for players

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 28th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

A year ago, Seoul-based publisher Webzen added to its MU franchise with an MMO for the mobile platform. MU Origin features elements from its 2003 predecessor, updated to fit in amongst other modern freemium fantasy-action apps. You loot dungeons, maim monsters and level up, and up, and up. Having reached the grand old age of 1, close to 2 million players have hacked and slashed their way across the lands of MU Origin. In fact, gamers have notched up a combined playtime of over 7000 years! That’s enough time to build 38 Towers of Pisa (and probably straighten up the wonky one, too).

In celebration of MU Origin’s anniversary, Webzen is rewarding players with a load of freebies, bonuses and discounts from the 28th of July to the 3rd of August. Just logging in daily during the event period will net you a reward. You’ll gain additional awards based on your Talisman tier and VIP level too. Playing Colosseum, Epic Chest Point, Party Dungeon and Exchange promises double the points, rewards and duration.

As an incentive to spread the news, Webzen is rewarding players who share the MU Origin anniversary infographic on Facebook. Just post your character details in the comments so the developers know where to chuck your gift. You can also share a screenshot of your character beside the new anniversary title to receive additional rewards.

If you’re looking for an MMORPG to distract you from the things in life that don’t involve exploring dungeons and swinging swords, MU Origin is free to download from Google Play and the App Store.

Every critical strategic choice is left up to the player. You choose who joins your army, which combinations work the best, and where your army is placed on the battlefield. It’s vital to be keyed into every aspect of battle, especially when you’ll be engaging real-life opponents in the game’s 2 vs. 2 challenges. If it’s peace you seek, though, you can join a guild and team up with like-minded armies.

Minions & Mayhem’s beta test will be expanding to other regions soon, so stay tuned.

This thrilling twin stick shooter will test your mettle as you work your way through the “Massacre” single player campaign.

You won’t have to go into battle unaided, though. There are over 20 weapons to unlock, each with their own unique strengths.

Test your pop culture knowledge with Font Mystery

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 3rd, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Like fellow French duo Daft Punk, the Creative Brothers pool their collective brainpower to create stuff for people to play. Rather than an album of disco plunderphonics, though, the developer double-act has released a fun new app called Font Mystery. The game has just received its worldwide release on the App Store and Google Play, and is free to play.

Font Mystery challenges players with recognisable fonts from the spectrum of pop culture, so fans of Logo Quiz will find themselves in familiar territory. There are different categories to choose from, including films, video games, books and TV programmes. You’re presented with a sentence in black-and-white text, and have to use the letters available onscreen to write the answer. The phrases themselves offer a hint – for example, ‘hilarious green disguise’ in familiar wonky typeface for The Mask, or ‘a movie with dinosaurs’ in that iconic tribal font for Jurassic Park. There are additional hints available if you get stuck, and additional difficulty settings if you’re a pop culture buff looking for more of a challenge.

Font Mystery boasts 150 fonts and 200 levels to complete, with various achievements and themes to unlock. Although it’s single player, it’s also the perfect game for casual get togethers, letting you test your friends and family on their knowledge, or getting them to help you out when you’re stuck.

Font Mystery is the perfect way to find out if you know your famous film fonts from your top telly typefaces. It’s available for free for Android and iOS in English, French, Spanish and Italian.

Dive into epic summer adventure with Oceans & Empires’ new update

Posted by Andreea Ghiurca on June 28th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Summer may be the best time to enjoy ocean adventures, and now you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home, thanks to the folks at Joycity, creators of Oceans & Empires. The old-timey naval MMO is getting a sizable new June Grand Update that brings a host of new gameplay elements, just in time for vacation.

Players will team up this summer to take on Aestaros, a new Boss Monster challenging adventures to a Rally Attack. Players have to work together in perfect unison to take down the beast, but fortunately that’s made easier with the addition of the new global chat system that lets all players talk, regardless of their server. A new preset function works to streamline combat, too, allowing players to swap between Skill palettes with a single tap of their finger. If you're itching to get new loot in Alliance battles, you now only need to be VIP level four, rather than eight, to “Receive All” on Alliance rewards.

Ships get a boost too, now that you can add figureheads to give your ship a unique look and new buffs. You can rename each ship you add to your fleet, too, to keep things nice and organized. There are other new buffs and items to discover outside of these figureheads, though, including Ship DurabilityBuffs, along with items such as Voyage Speed Up 75% and Random Equipment Ticket.

Smaller adjustments like enhanced purchase methods and the option to retrieve inactive Alliance Buildings give even more incentive to dust off your battleship and set sail.

Oceans & Empires is available to download on iOS and Android.
