+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If you’ve ever dreamt of leading your own fantasy army to glorious victory, now’s your chance. Avid.ly’s new RTS, Minions & Mayhem, has just soft-launched in the UK. If you’re situated on the British Isles, you can try the game out for yourself right now on both iOS and Android.

Minions & Mayhem is a brightly colored real-time tactical battler set in a fantastical land. Your goal is to amass an impressive army. Gain the loyalty of dozens of heroes, building up a strong fighting force, whether you choose to depend on magic, physical strength, or both. You’re the leader, and the game leaves every choice up to you.

You can build up a massive army from the game’s any heroes. There are a number of fantastical classes and races to choose from -- wizards, ninjas, orcs, and the undead are just a few of the possibilities. Just remember that when it comes to Minions & Mayhem, it’s the quality of your warriors that truly matters.

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.

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 148Apps Staff 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.

Blue Brain Games invites you to indulge in an immersive hands-on 3D puzzle adventure in similar vein to The Room series, with its debut release The House of Da Vinci.

The House of Da Vinci’s music, architecture, and environmental design all take influence from early 16th century manuscripts and inventions along with some of Da Vinci’s actual concepts. This is in the effort to immerse and whisk players away further when undertaking an adventurous and mysterious first person journey that will see you asking all kinds of questions. Was Da Vinci transported elsewhere? Assassinated by the Church? Or is there something much larger at play?

Intuitive touch controls aim to let players make light work of traversing the plentiful nooks and crannies present in Leonardo’s library and workshop, with simple taps and swipes placing you at the forefront of discovery. Examine every model, escape devious traps, and solve intricate riddles. Will you do Da Vinci proud as his one and only protégé?

Many a mind-bending riddle awaits you in The House of Da Vinci, available to download and experience now on iOS, with a release on Android, PC, and Mac also to come very soon.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

MU Origin is kicking off the summer with style. Its latest update is a real doozy, offering up plenty of fresh content. New challenges, some extra help for newcomers, and new costumes are just a few of the things you will find in the new patch.

Players will now be able to join upwards of 100 other players in the Land of Ordeal, a new Server Boss Field that features five new boss monsters. This event is open on Saturdays and Sundays by registration only (you can do so in-app). Players get 30 minutes to work together to defeat the five bosses and their accompanying monster minions. Loot and treasure await those who dole out the most damage.

For those with more experience under their belts, the new all-server area, Kalutan, might appeal. Accessible by players of 10 Rebirth or higher who pay the 15,000 Zen entrance fee, Kalutan allows you to group up with folks across all servers.

If you’re starting fresh, fear not. You haven’t been forgotten. The update also introduces the New Warrior Event, designed with beginners in mind. This seven day event kicks in after you create a new character and provides support for newbies by way of Login Rewards, Recharge Rewards, 7-Day Goals, and 7-Day Limited Sales.

No MMORPG is complete without a place to call home in between all of that adventuring. You can do just that with the new Domain System, a new base-building feature. Players hire workers to develop up to four buildings -- an Observatory, Tower of Magic, Gate of Ordeal, and Tower of Battle. As you develop these new constructs you’ll gain Star Essence, Gems, Achievements, or Fame.

UTPlus Interactive explains why you should be playing Shadowblood

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 12th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Shadowblood is a hack-and-slash ARPG straight out of South Korea, blending Western and Eastern influences into an addictive, customisable MMO. Destroy waves of monsters, upgrade your skills and equipment, take on or fight alongside players online – all that good stuff. But what makes Shadowblood stand out from the crowd? Producer Park Chang-Gyu of UTPlus Interactive explains all.

What separates Shadowblood from other ARPGs on the market?

A (Park Chang-Gyu) – What we emphasize first about Shadowblood is its action aspects. Action is, of course, the core of all ARPGs, but in Shadowblood you can compose your own skills and use them like generic ones.

Controls were designed to avoid the boredom of auto-battles and actually have a strategic impact on battle outcomes. For example, when Stella (Magician) creates a black hole, it will ‘return’ to her. By moving around while it does, she can cause greater damage to nearby enemies compared to an auto-battle spell use. Kai (Berserker) can target his powerful smash attacks on different foes to spread out his stuns and attacks manually, which is much more efficient than the auto-battle skill attacks.

These manual controls are boosted further with Soulstones, which can customise each character’s skills to suit your tastes. Players can set their Soulstone skills so that, for example, his or her character can cast 10 fireballs at once instead of the standard 4 fireballs, or execute 10 whirlwind attacks rather than 5. We plan to delve deeper into the customization of Soulstones along with additional skills and actions to create even more in-depth tactical customisations.

What challenges did you face during development, and how did you overcome them?

All our development team members are native Koreans, familiar with the Korean culture and style of gameplay. So the biggest obstacle for us was to understand the play style and goals of players worldwide when preparing for our global launch. We finally realised that, just as Koreans do not limit themselves to playing only Korean games, if we can provide fundamental fun factors, then we will be able to communicate with players from around the world. If an action game is true to its core and firmly based on hero growth, action and challenges, then we can always improve other factors when necessary.

What were your inspirations for making the game?

Many classic action games were inspirational for us, such as the Diablo series. Personally, my greatest source of inspiration comes from the comics of my childhood. I often used to imagine heroes gathering companions to defeat evil overlords through trials and battles, so these aspects show in Shadowblood.

Can you give us any details about what updates will be coming to Shadowblood in the near future?

With the recent updates for Guild Raid, we are hoping that co-operation within guilds and competitions between guilds will become active, and we also have an item encyclopedia and level cap expansion in preparation.

After that, we will reveal a new Guardian class (who will be the full tank and protector), and strategic party play will become more essential as Epic Raids will become available.

We are also developing defence-oriented content The Temple of Stars, a tag match dungeon where players can utilise their beloved characters, and a scrimmage-type PvP with multiple characters. Finally, we are preparing a pet system for hunting and guild wars for more guild contents.

If you'd like to find out more then be sure to check out the official Facebook page, or if you'd prefer to skip the details and jump straight into the action you can download the game now on iOS and Android.

Zombie mayhem in Dead Plague, newly released on Android and iOS

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 8th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

You know that feeling when you’re sunbathing on a beach with a Mojito in one hand and a Rum Punch in the other, when a horde of the undead come bounding out of the palm trees towards you? Well Chinese developer GameSpire has basically given us that with its new mobile action game Dead Plague.

You play a guy in khaki trousers and a cowboy hat, dropped off in the tropics by BIOCORP to investigate an epidemic. But this isn’t an island-wide case of the sniffles. This is an outbreak of zombie flu! Luckily you’re accompanied by a trusty submachine gun to deal with the hungry locals.

Gameplay involves completing various objectives throughout the single-player campaign, surviving the onslaught of zombies as you go. Aside from your garden-variety runner zombies, you’ll also encounter the occasional special zombie, and bosses to boot. Luckily, this archipelago is peppered with munitions boxes equipping you with rifles, machine guns, grenades, mines – and of course ammo, so you should have the firepower to cope. Dead Plague uses a twin-stick style of controls, with the right side of the screen controlling aiming and firing, and the left controlling movement and direction.

The game provides a 3D bird’s-eye view of the action, with realistic lighting, vibrant colours and impressive dynamic weather effects, all lending believability to the sun-soaked setting.

If you fancy killing off zombies on the world’s worst tropical holiday, you can download Dead Plague from Google Play and the App Store.

Become a fantasy hero in Art of Conquest

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 6th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Lilith Games is trying something new with its latest game, Art of Conquest. This massive new fantasy real-time strategy game places you at the head of a kingdom in the beautiful, but conflicted, world of Nore. Choose from one of five races, gather your loyal troops and set out to battle five other enemy kingdoms in deliciously deep strategy combat.

Recruit from a selection of 20 unique heroes and set out to explore the world. Art of Conquest favors exploration over sterile matchmaking, so players will have to explore the sprawling world map to find enemy strongholds to besiege.

Art of Conquest sets itself apart from the pack, giving players true independence in battle including in PVP mode. Rather than automated fights, players take full control of how the battle plays out. Place your units in formation before setting them loose on the enemy. Over time, your heroes will gain unique active abilities that, when used strategically, can completely shift the tides of battle.

Of course, there’s more to it than sheer shows of strength. You’ll need to build up your castle, construct siege machines, and cooperate with other players in your kingdom to become a true hero. Art of Conquest is a breath of fresh air in the world of base-building strategy games and is available now on iOS and Android.

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
Our rating: starstarblankstarblankstarblankstar :: SKIRMISH ELSEWHERE :: Read Review »

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.

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.

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.
