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 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.
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 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!
Pocket Gamer reports that World of Aircraft will launch onto the App Store, next week, on May 22nd.

Besides PvP battles, the game also features single-player missions to engage in.
If you've played Eve Online, you'll feel right at home in Vendetta Online, an upcoming space-themed MMO for the iPad. It's been out on Mac, PC, Linux, and Android for a while now, and is finally polished enough, according to founder and CEO, John Bergman, to make its debut on the iPad. Bergman sat down with us today in the last few hours of GDC to show off the gorgeous space sim, which includes guilds, a vast trading economy, and some fantastic space combat features. Keep your eyes on this game, as Bergman hopes to release it sometime this Spring.
