Fantasy MMORPG MU Origin adds new modes, systems, and more in a colossal new update

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

MU Origin, Webzen’s highly popular fantasy MMORPG is getting ready to shake things up for the second time this year, as a new update makes its way to the Google Play and App Store from today. Introducing new systems, modes, and events, the land of MU is once again in need of thrill-hungry adventurers.

The first thing veterans will notice upon loading up the freshly-updated MMORPG , are the suite of new systems each capable of majorly influencing how players interact with the world. Most of note is update 1.7’s introduction of the Soul Stone system, which for the first time ever offers players the means to apply various unique elemental changes to their character, giving them an edge before entering battle.

As well as a slew of other substantial systems, the new update introduces two significant all-server gameplay options, ideal for those looking to get their EXP and achievement point fix. First up is Battle Core, an all-new event which acts as a race against time, requiring players to be the first to reach 1,000 points. From gathering chalices to defeating opposing warriors, balanced match-making assures victory is dependent on skill, and skill alone.

Also keeping things fresh is Battlefield of Heroes, a new PVP system beyond servers that sees an incredible 100 warriors enter the fray to do battle with each other. 50 v 50 madness is open for business every Tuesday and Friday between 21:00-22:25, rewarding those who succeed in mining, boss hunting, and everything else Battlefield of Heroes may throw at you.

Webzen have used this opportunity to implement plenty of minor tweaks and fixes too, making for the smoothest MU Origin experience yet. Update 1.7’s new content is free to try out within MU Origin from today on both iOS and Android.

Step up your critter-capturing game in Creature Quest’s new update

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

Veteran Creature Quest players may need to re-think their tactics, as new abilities, prizes and creatures arrive in update 1.2. Combined with a completely restructured Battle Tower mode, VC Mobile has been hard at work to offer players plenty more to see and do.

Starting off in a big way, fans will immediately notice the substantial changes made to the game’s Battle Tower, now completely revitalised for a revamped PVE strategic experience. For the first time, global and guild leaderboards have also been added, with even greater weekly prizes awaiting adventurers who battle their way to the top.

Update 1.2 is also bringing with it a suite of entirely new beasts to tame and critters to collect, meaning current players’ creature squads might need a worthy re-shuffle. New monsters include the mystical Jade Dragon and the new legendary class monster Fallen Angel. Both look set to make their presence known, giving you a better chance at dominating the wholly new Battle Tower.

Keeping the enhancements coming, the folks at VC Mobile have also taken fan feedback on-board, improving Creature Quest’s Dungeon Challenge mode with a new Bronze, Silver, and Gold tier system. The higher the tier, the better the reward, so it pays to climb to the top in the attempt to remain at Gold level.

There’s plenty more to see, do, and accomplish in Creature Quest’s latest update, so feel free to try out all of Creature Quest’s new and old on both iOS and Android now.

Saber's Edge tips, tricks, and hints

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on August 14th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

I know what you're thinking. "Another match-3 RPG? We've seen these before."

That's certainly true. Match-3 has proven to be a very popular mechanic for RPGs of all types, and even the trappings of Hibernum's Saber's Edge -- a crew of pirates that has a flying ship -- may seem familiar.

Still, spending a little time with this one suggests that it's selling the game short to simply lump it in with what's come before. Not only does Saber's Edge have an intriguing story that plays out gradually after each completed quest, but it offers a deeper RPG experience than you might first suspect.
