GDC 2015 - Jelly Reef will be Game Oven's Last Hurrah, and it Seems like a Good Note to Go Out on

Posted by Rob Rich on March 4th, 2015

It's sad knowing that Game Oven (Bounden, Fingle) will be shuttered in April, but they're not going to let that stop them from releasing one last game to the App Store. Jelly Reef is going to be the studio's swan song (of a sort) and quite honestly seems like as good a place to stop as any.

A lot has changed since Jelly Reef was first shown, and in that time it's gone from more of a puzzle game to a roguelike with an emphasis on exploration. Now the goal is for players to guide a bunch of jellyfish to the bottom of the ocean, but rather than controlling the stinging invertebrates directly they'll have to move them around by creating water currents. That's right, you play as water.

Each ocean tier is split into multiple hexagonal sections that come together to create one big map, and you'll need to push and pull the jellies around all sorts of unpleasantness in order to make it to the end. This is not an easy thing by any stretch of the imagination, but it is quite cool how you can create currents that will remain on the level and allow you to plan your routes ahead of time. Or screw you up horribly when you forget where you put them and they shove your jellyfish into the waiting jaws of an eel.

Jelly Reef should be releasing either at the end of March or the beginning of April.

Legacy Quest is an Upcoming Roguelike That'll Kill the Whole Family

Posted by Jessica Fisher on February 26th, 2015

Nexon Co. and Socialspiel Entertainment are teaming up to develop a new roguelike-inspired action role playing game called Legacy Quest. You become the ever-valiant, yet doomed to die, line of heroes that face an adventure that will have them delving dungeons and vanquishing monsters. Each time a hero dies in the game, their soul is collected and you can use that energy to unlock new traits and upgrade the next hero in your bloodline.

The game will have a social features to let you trade weapons and armor with your friends, join Guilds, and play in player-versus-environment challenges.

“Every time a player takes their hero into a dungeon in Legacy Quest they’re creating their own personal journey that will quite literally echo throughout every other player's game experience in the form of epic loot,” said Mike Borras, CEO of Socialspiel, in a press release. “But it’s not entirely about collecting loot, we’re going to ensure that players are met with an awesome feeling of accomplishment in Legacy Quest as they battle their way through hordes of monsters while sharing that adventure with friends.”

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: DUNGEON OF CARDS :: Read Review »

Card Dungeon, by Playtap Games, has gotten a major overhaul that adds new features and fixes some old bugs.

Playtap has increased the speed of game play by shrinking the max room size and allowing Crusaders to move faster across the map when there are no monsters lurking nearby. Card Dungeon now also saves your game for you after every turn, making it easier to pick up and put down when you need to.

Last but not least, when you beat the boss on each level the dungeon will begin to collapse. You must race to the exit before time runs out.

You can download the newly-updated Card Dungeon for $3.99 on the App Store.

Hello Cadets:
Want to know what we thought about this hectic space combat/roguelike? Check out our Space Colors review!

Space Colors is a cool shooter/roguelike from Team Chaos. You travel from planet to planet across a huge galaxy and complete a variety of missions. One day, you may pick up a benign space crate. On another day, you may be asked to get serious about roasting alien slime.

Space is cold, harsh, and unfriendly (regardless of how colorful it is), so here are a few tips for keeping yourself alive for as long as possible.
