Announced over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con was the fairly exciting looking Marvel Contest of Champions.

Set to be released this Fall, the game hopes to be an immersive beat-em-up of sorts, offering players the chance to fight their way through various iconic locations from the Marvel Universe. You’ll be able to collect your favorite heroes and villains such as Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, and Thor.

The title comes from Kabam, best known for titles such as The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth and Fast & Furious 6: The Game, so expect Marvel Contest of Champions to be a free-to-play title when it hits the App Store later this year.

Check out the teaser trailer below.

Kabam has released Wartune: Hall of Heroes, its latest MMORPG. The game was originally released in China and grew in popularity fast. Originally released as a browser-based game, this version has been optimized to work on iPhone, iPad, and iTouch.

With Wartune: Hall of Heroes, you have the option of playing alone fighting monsters and exploring dungeons or joining other players in creating guilds and knocking each other around in PvP events. Players can choose between a Knight, Archer, or Mage and further customize their characters with weapons and armor they find or craft themselves. The game is not only an action-strategy rpg, but also includes elements of city building and farming all bundled into one.

You can pick up Wartune: Hall of Heroes in the App Store now for free.

Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon players are getting a little help from an unexpected source this week. Wil Wheaton (a.k.a Advisor Wheaton) is taking part in a special scavenger hunt style promotion for the whole week.

According to the details on Kabam’s forum, current players just have to add “_AW” (the initials for Advisor Wheaton) at the end of their city name to enter. Merely changing your city name earns you a special “Advisor Wheaton Prize Chest” full of in-game goodies. The Advisor will be doling out clues as to the whereabouts of various artifacts via Twitter and the official Dragons of Atlantis YouTube page all week through Monday, 4/28.

You can grab Dragons of Atlantis off the App Store for free.

There might be plenty to do here, but Dark District is a title that's too samey for comfort.

    It's not that Fast & Furious 6 isn't a fun drag racer, it's just that its slow recharging mechanic puts one off getting drawn in.

    Fast & Furious 6: The Game has launched on the App Store, giving you the ability to drift and drag your way through the streets of London. You’ll be taking on a number of jobs in a heist mode as you go against an organization of mercenary drivers. Check out our Preview of the game for more info.

    Ah, Canada. The land where poutine is the national dish, ham is called bacon, and they worship hockey players as gods. They also seem to get many iOS games early. Since it’s a smaller country at about 10% of the population of the US, it makes a good test market. Every once in a while we like to pop in to the Canadian App Store and see what’s new. This time we take a look at the upcoming movie tie-in game from Kabam, Fast & Furious 6: The Game.

    FF6 2

    Fast & Furious 6: The Game seems to loosely follow the movie. If familiar with CSR Racing, this game will seem familiar. It’s a reaction time game in which players hit buttons to shift the car, hit a button to drift, and hit nitro at just the right time for maximum speed.

    FF6 adds a bunch of other race types as well, where CSR racing only has the single drag race type. There’s also the usual upgrade system that can be used to increase the performance of a car or change the look. All of that, of course, requires earning in-app currency or purchases.

    FF6 also relies on the weak crutch of lazy game design, an energy system. Sounds harsh, but it’s a concept that has become an indication of a game more focused on pushing players to pay than it is on pushing entertainment. A player can only race so much without putting the game down and waiting for the energy system to recharge. Of course, a player can also spend money to recharge quickly, so there’s that.

    It should be noted that this game and all of the games that we feature in this series should be considered pre-release. They are not final, and are in Canada for a reason: to test and balance the gameplay. We will never review an app based on a testing launch such as this.
