French developers Galta Apps has announced that their MMO Minesweeper game, A Few Billion Square Tiles, is set to arrive on the App Store worldwide this week. The game takes place on an infinite game board, with the aim being to discover yellow tiles and build an empire of blue. Players can also compete in hourly global leaderboard battles, use power-ups to aid their tile discovery, and combine their empires together with other players to form bigger empires.

A Few Billion Square Tiles is available for free in Europe and Canada now, with the game set to explode onto the App Store worldwide on July 10. You can also see a map of the game world here.

Set for release next month is MMO Steel Avengers, a build-and-conquer strategy game.

A natural disaster has befallen a not too distant future Earth, which means anarchy has broken out. With a battle for survival afoot, it’s down to individuals to attempt to create a new world, which is exactly where the game is focused. Players will be able to build powerful armies, establish a base, research new things, as well as gather resources. After all, resource gathering leads to all the good stuff!

The game also promises an extensive PvP side of things, with alliances also possible for the more peaceful of gamers.

Steel Avengers features 11 different buildings, 29 different technologies, and a fully fledged PvE story comprising of 11 chapters and 176 combat zones.

It’s due out in mid-July, a mere month away, assuming a natural disaster doesn’t actually befall us before that time!

Habbo Brings its Teen Social Networking World to the iPad

Posted by on May 27th, 2014
iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Oh wow, Habbo takes me back. I remember messing around with it back when Runescape was still on my radar. In fact, Habbo (then known as Habbo Hotel) has actually been around longer than Runescape. Yeesh I feel old.

And now it’s available for the iPad.

What is Habbo? It’s essentially a pixelated virtual world/hangout/social network for teenagers. Users can explore various rooms, customize their avatar with lots of accessories and effects, take part in daily events, and more. But don’t worry, parents, it’s also got live moderators who are available 24/7.

You can now download Habbo for your iPad for free.

Warner Bros. Releases MMO Game LEGO Legends of CHIMA Online

Posted by on March 3rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Warner Bros has just released LEGO Legends of CHIMA Online, which, as the name hints at, is an online multiplayer adventure with solo play options.

The game is based on the LEGO CHIMA universe, where animals take on human characteristics and the eight animal tribes fight to control CHI. Folks familiar with the toys and/or cartoon will find many familiar elements. It allows the player to select from one of four tribes, and to customize a warrior to battle the other four tribes; it also allows one to create weapons and outposts, and to perform trades and alliances with other online players. There is also the ability to pick up a paused or interrupted game from other online portals.

LEGO Legends of CHIMA Online is available for free on the App Store.

Legacy of a Thousand Suns – 5th Planet Games Embraces Cross-Platform Play, With a Slight Catch

Posted by on December 11th, 2013
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Today 5th Planet Games is taking down their rather cool iOS MMO, Legacy of a Thousand Suns, and replacing it with… Legacy of a Thousand Suns??

Indeed, the developer is pushing out the old version of their game for a new one (an entirely new download, not an update) that supports cross-platform play. So now users will be able to enjoy their space adventures at home on Facebook or on the go through their iPhone! The catch is that player data from the original iOS version will, regrettably, be lost in the transition. It’s an unfortunate problem, but 5th Planet hopes to lessen the sting a bit by offering a special Starter Pack – which includes a fair amount of new gear and consumables – to all players who install the game within the first 30 days.

The Realm of Shadows Lurks Just Beneath the Surface of Arcane Legends

Posted by on August 29th, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Spacetime Studios‘ popular MMO Arcane Legends (although really, all their MMOs are popular) is getting an update. And not just any update; a mysterious, shadowy update.

The new Realm of Shadows content is going to “introduce players to, and have them save, the sorcerer’s homeland.” Sounds intriguing, right? Well what about new enemies and bosses? New loot, pets, and gear? New quests? Nah, I bet what you’ll really be excited about is the level cap increase that takes each characters’ max level from 31 to 36.

If the Realm of Shadows sounds like your kind of place, then either download Arcane Legends and check it out or update it if you’ve already got it on your iOS device. Simple as that!

Given the popularity of MMORPGs on the PC and Mac, it’s surprising we haven’t seen similar success for iOS. It’s the ideal genre to hook players, much like social games. Set to be released, later this month, comes Armed Heroes Online, the latest title hoping to be a huge MMO hit.

Armed Heroes Online describes itself as a real-time 3D Massively Multiplayer Online Action & Role Playing Game (or MMOARPG for short) and the trailer we’ve been sent is clearly demonstrating the action side of things.

Looking a lot like a Diablo style game, Armed Heroes Online gives players the choice of four classes to play as they explore dungeons, solo or with a group, as well as compete in PvP arenas. It should prove to keep RPG fans of all types happy, given its focus on collecting tons of loot and facing up against many monsters along the way.

Have a look at the gameplay trailer below. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on any further developments.

I’m not being sarcastic when I say that I wish more browser-based games made their way onto iOS. A lot of them are fantastic, but due to various software/hardware constraints they typically don’t function on handheld Apple devices. It’s a shame, really. But what isn’t a shame is that another browser MMO is coming to iOS. And it’s going to be playable across all (read: iOS, Android, HTML 5) platforms.

Dragon Eternity affords players many of the luxuries they expect in their MMOs; more than 1,000 quests, loot drops, 200+ crafting recipes, mounts, powerful bosses, crafting professions, pets, over 500 monsters to fight, custom character development, and five different PvP modes. So yeah, there’s a lot on offer here. The beta version is already sporting over a million registered users, so I think it’s safe to say that it won’t be one of those Massively Multiplayer Ghost Towns that some of these games tend to be when they first launch.

It’s still in open beta via the browser version, but once Dragon Eternity is complete it will be available for iOS (most likely iPad) and Android devices as well. It’s also going to be free-to-play so there’s no need to start saving up for the eventual release.

Gameloft’s juggernaut of a mobile phone MMO has just hit the 1 year-old mark. While celebrating the occasion with a huge update isn’t exactly out of the ordinary it’s still certainly something worth talking about. Especially because it includes a number of additions as well as one particular feature players have been clamoring for over the past twelve months.

The list of new stuff is fairly extensive. Various bug fixes are to be expected, as well as some new quests. Players will also receive a free gift box, a special Thank You letter, access to new items and pets, and will be able to mess around with the new Lottery system. Those who have been playing for over three months will also get a special Anniversary pet. And it wouldn’t be a proper celebration without some flagrant fashions (i.e. new clothes for NPCs) and fireworks that can be purchased as well as simply viewed in all their explosive glory. Last but certainly not least, Gameloft has given the fans what they want and included 3G support. So now Order and Chaos can be enjoyed pretty much anywhere.

The festivities have already begun, so make sure to get on that downloading. Everyone else who isn’t already playing can download it now for $6.99, which includes a free 3 months of play ($0.99/month after that).

Creators of Hitman, Roto-Moto, has launched a closed beta of their game, Heroes & Generals. The game is a massively multiplayer first-person shooter involving online fighting between the Axis and Allied forces in Europe.

The game involves both strategic elements and first-person shooter (FPS) elements. Each side sends reinforcements, tanks, and other support to battles going on in various cities. The FPS fights don’t necessarily have to be even, hence the need for support being sent to each side.

The game is actually a PC game but it will be offering a free companion app to the game called Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command. The app lets users access and view the campaign their playing in the PC version of the game. This includes viewing things like battlefields and supply lines on the map. It also allows players to chat with other players on their team when they aren’t even on the PC game – allowing constant communication to continue for a constant online war. A future update to the app will allow users to move and manage assault teams in the game and most other strategy elements (the non-FPS part).

To apply for a key to the closed beta, visit the Heroes & Generals website here.

So those folks over at Spacetime Studios, they’re alright. After releasing two more than a little successful iOS MMOs (Pocket Legends, Star Legends), they’ve gone and put out a third. But what’s left after anthropomorphic woodland creatures and space-faring explorers? Vampires, natch.

Taking a page or two from the modern day vampire handbook, Dark Legends puts players in control of a young (as in recently turned) vampire simply trying to survive in a world that knows they exist and wants them gone. It takes a slightly different approach to the player’s interactions with the world this time around. Some missions put the player in direct control of their character as they cut a bloody swath through their enemies while others simply take real time to complete automatically at the cost of a little energy. Both provide experience and the like, of course. As expected, avatars can be customized with a number of special weapons and clothing items, as well as proudly displayed to others when playing together in a group or with guild mates.

Dark Legends is lurking on the App Store right now. Joining the ranks of the Undead is completely free, too. Typical micro-transactions and in-app-purchases are available those who want to show their support with money or pick up a few vanity items, though.
