MU Origin receives an autumnal patch with updates to pets and PVP

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 27th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Barely a month goes by without the workaholics at Webzen introducing shiny new content to MU Origin. This latest autumnal update continues the trend, with a big old battle, pet perks and temple blessings giving gamers more to play with.

Like the Norse myth of its namesake, Ragnarok is an epic fight, except instead of Odin et al, it’s between you and rival warriors. This massive all-server barney involves players ranked within the top one hundred in the last month, so it’s an exclusive club. If you make the cut, you’ll be fighting for the number one spot over the course of a week – the 10th to the 16th of each month, 3.30pm to 4.30pm server time. Whittle all your opponents away, and you’ll win the epithet MU Origin No.1 and the right to strut round Lorencia like you own the place. For those unsuccessful, there are still prizes for taking part. Ragnarok points are awarded whether you win or lose, and can be used to buy items from the Ragnarok shop.

Aside from solo combat, the update ushers in Guild Temples that grant bonuses to your character. Investing resources into upgrading your temple means the strength of buffs and bonuses improve, so you might want to consider it if you’re looking to gain the edge over rivals. The level cap for guilds has gone up two points to ten, too, so there’s room to grow more powerful in other ways.

If you’ve completed the Faith War quest, you’ll automatically unlock the pet skill system, the next new feature in this latest MU update. Skill slots can be unlocked and upgraded for pets level thirty and above, providing handy buffs to your character. Every time your eligible pets level up another ten times, they’ll unlock an additional skill slot. The skills themselves come in three grades – Rare, Epic and Magic. Your pet can have four active skills at any one time, which could provide a useful stat boost.

There’s also a new Cry Wolf statue in Lorencia you can praise, a new area called Elveland to explore for characters eleven rebirths or higher, plus a couple of minor system improvements thrown in. That’s the low-down on the update, until the next patch in not too long. You can enjoy these additions whilst slaying monsters by downloading MU Origin for free on iOS and Android.

Run a farm from your mobile in Big Farm: Mobile Harvest

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

If you’re looking for a laid-back alternative to all the war games out there in app land, how about a bright, cheerful farm simulator instead? German developer Goodgame Studios has brought its browser-based Big Farm to the mobile, and the only hacking and slashing you’ll be doing is ploughing your fields.

Big Farm: Mobile Harvest begins with your inheriting a sorry swathe of countryside from your uncle George. You can make him proud by turning the plot’s fortune around, building a productive farm and harvesting the fruits of your labour. Helping you do just that are friendly locals Benny and Tessa, along with other colourful characters dedicated to cheering up the land a bit. They’ll issue you with quests and aid you with useful tips along the way.

Big Farm: Mobile Harvest is strategic, with the priority being sustainable management. You can’t build a thriving farm on shaky foundations, so you have to keep the livestock and farmhands happy, reinvest the profit you make from selling down the market into growth, reuse materials like manure to improve the quality of your soil and output of your harvest. There are a lot of arable balls to juggle, but the game guides you gently along the way. As well as quests, seasonal events will keep you keen. There’s a Halloween party coming up, as well as a Fairytale Festival and farmyard tour to arrange.

If you’re looking for fun farm simulator to relax into, you can download Big Farm: Mobile Harvest for free on Android and iOS.

Each match in the new Last Guardian mode will last for 20 exhilarating minutes. You’ll be placed on a map with 39 other players, all with the same base attributes as you. Once the battle starts, you’ll be forced to fight off other players while collecting weapons, equipment, potions, and experience to become the strongest player on the field.

Since its launch in late 2016, nearly 70 million guardians from over 190 countries have been created in the game, and now is an excellent time to fight right alongside them. With the anniversary celebrations well under way, there is a whole lot for beginners and seasoned veterans alike to explore.

3 reasons to play Thunder Armada - the new WWII naval stategy game from Chyogame

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 19th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The bygone days of the Battleship board game might have past, but naval combat simulators still find an audience on mobile. Thunder Armada is Chinese developer Chyogames latest entry into the genre, drawing inspiration from the explosive exchanges across the seas during World War 2. Here are three reasons to set sail for its turbulent tides.

Realistic models

Thunder Armada features detailed models strictly based on the design of historical vessels from around the world, rendered in 3D. The British Nelson-class and American Iowa-class battleships feature alongside the likes of the Japanese super-dreadnought Nagato and Kuroshio destroyers. History buffs should find something to get excited about, then.

Strategic battles

Taking inspiration from the oceanic clashes in the Pacific and Altantic, Thunder Armada puts you in the midst of the action. You take strategic command during famous battles including Pearl Harbour and Midway Island, with text providing historical context during each campaign. Which formation you choose for you fleet directly impacts how the conflict unfolds, often more so than how you use the manual controls, so you can’t sit back and relax. You’ve got a war to win.

Familiar faces

Drawing further from the history books, Thunder Armada allows you to play as several high profile World War 2 commanders such as US Navy general Chester William Nimitz, as you fight for dominance across the high seas.

If all that’s got you reaching for the trigger on the nearest Mark 7 50 cal’ cannon, hop on board a battleship in Thunder Armada. You can download it from the App Store and Google Play.

Experience a full 3D fantasy MMORPG, as EZFun’s Eternity Guardians launches on mobile

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 19th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Those hoping to sink their teeth into a meaty hack and slash RPG that encourages you to fight with others might want to check out EZFun’s new Eternity Guardians. Available to download for iOS and Android, Eternity Guardians is an MMORPG that lets you step into the role of a demigod on a mission to save your sister from evil forces.

Setting you on a story heavily-inspired by rich Norse mythology, you’ll rub shoulders with famous gods like Loki and Odin, slicing and dicing your way through hordes of enemy orcs. Eternity Guardians differs from other fantasy RPGs in that you’re never tied to just one class. Dubbed “no-class combat”, it’s this free-flow battle system that lets you fluidly switch weapons mid-fight to help give you an edge over enemies.

Helping you on this godly adventure are the various companions and pets that prove vital when wanting to further upgrade and boost your character’s abilities. Companions can be called in to help decimate your enemies, while any pets you find in shops and events passively offer attribute buffs. Anyone checking into Eternity Guardians over the Halloween period can look forward to an exclusive pet to celebrate, so be sure not to miss out.

Waiting for you following the single-player campaign are Eternity Guardians’ various online offerings, keeping the action thick and fast in the form of challenges, siege bosses, leaderboards, and guild warfare activities. And if that’s not enough, jump into 3V3 Royal Rumble, the game’s built-in PVP mode that lets your hone your skills against real-life players online.

You don’t have to wait long to fight the shadowy Pandora organisation, Eternity Guardians is free to download now from both the GooglePlay and App Store.

Q&A: A-33 Studio explains why Combat Squad is different from other mobile FPS games

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 16th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

When it comes to mobile FPS, it’s often tricky to get the fundamentals right on a platform lacking a physical controller, large display and hefty RAM. With Combat Squad: Project Wednesday, A-33 Studio bravely took on the challenge of making a decent shooter that plays to the strengths of mobile gaming, rather than its weaknesses. The game was released earlier this year, and places you in charge of a five-person team of customisable soldiers, battling against other players online.

Whether the developer’s aspirations for Combat Squad have been achieved is for you to decide. The proof is in the shrapnel-laden, gunpowder pudding, after all. But we caught up with the people at A-33 Studio to find out what the process of making the game was like, and what they hope gamers will experience playing it.

148 Apps: What do you feel distinguishes Combat Squad from other mobile shooters?

A-33 Studio: One distinguishing factor is how the effectiveness of your tactical and strategic decisions depends on the combination of agents you select for your squad. Each agent has unique characteristics and players can recruit and customise them with Perks to fit their style of gaming. For example, a player may pick an agent that specialises in close-range combat, equipping them with the Suicide Bombing Perk causing them to detonate upon death. That turns the character into an effective assault unit.

In Combat Squad, you have the freedom to customise and experiment with different tactics to find out what works for you.

Q: What challenges did you face during the development of Combat Squad, and how did you overcome them?

A: To make battle between squads possible, much of our effort went into the development of the AI system. In the one-versus-one PVP mode, AI controls all of the agents except for the ones controlled by the players. This requires AI that can work tactically to complete the mission, even if the players wander off to fight alone.
One of the key challenges was finding the right balance for the AI’s ability. If the AI is too good, it makes the player feel like a sidekick. If the AI isn’t good enough, it gets in the way of the player carrying out the mission. To find the solution, we conducted countless experiments to reach the point in Combat Squad we’re at today. But we’re still making improvements and will continue to do so.

Q: Which part of the game are you personally most proud of and why?
A: There are many FPS games, each with different paces of battle, many of which we found to be on the slow side. What we really wanted for Combat Squad was to create fast-paced FPS battles that deliver the tension of the battlefield. We also wanted the game to feel dynamic, precise and feature high quality graphics.

In order to fully utilise the graphical potential of the Unreal Engine 4, along with achieving the other goals mentioned, we have worked very hard. We’re proud to say we fulfilled much of what we envisioned for Combat Squad. From now onwards, the feedback from players will help us discover what the game is lacking, and how to improve it into the future.

Q: What do you feel players will enjoy most about the game?
A: The DIVE system is a feature unique to Combat Squad, and we expect many players will find this interesting. DIVE was developed to give players tactical influence over the battlefield, swapping between agents in their squad at will. For example, imagine an enemy sniper positioned in the distance confronts a player charging in with a submachine gun. In other FPS games, the player would typically either attempt to find a different route, or rush headlong into the sniper’s path. With the DIVE system, however, there are more options. The player could dive into an agent in a different location to flank the sniper, attacking from a different angle. Diving in and out of the right agents at the right time and place is a great tactic and enables you to control the battlefield.

Dive in to Combat Squad if you’re looking for fresh FPS fun

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

Earlier this year, A-33 Studio made the leap from developing Counter Strike Online to launching its very own FPS for the mobile. Combat Squad: Project Wednesday pits your team of mercs against the world in multiplayer death matches, so if you’re on the hunt for a new shooter this might be worth a shot.

Gameplay involves assembling a team of five mercenaries, each with distinct specialties ranging from clandestine sniping to close-range combat. You can customise your band of brawlers further by equipping different perks, with forty to choose from in total. Controlling a member of your plucky paramilitary is done using the onscreen sticks – left to move and right to look. There’s a button in the centre for manual shooting, or an auto-fire option if you want to make life a little easier. Pretty standard for mobile shooters, so if you’re au fait with this fare then you’ll fare OK.

During one-versus-one battle, Combat Squad’s Dive system allows you to switch control between soldiers, with AI taking over to guide the rest of your team against combatants. If you’re a more sociable kind of soldier, you can also play five-versus-five, joining arms with other online players to take on rival teams in an all-out slaughter fest. There are seven multiplayer modes to get stuck into, including Deathmatch, Zombie and Demolition, taking place across maps spanning Europe and Central Asia. You won’t have much time to admire the exotic locales, though, what with all the bullet dodging.

If Combat Squad’s launch passed you by, don’t worry - you haven’t missed the boat. In fact you and your mercs can scuba your way to the boat, commandeer it and show these other pretenders who’s boss. But first you’ve got to download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.
