5 reasons why you need to play TapTap Heroes!

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

TapTap Heroes is an all-new idle RPG for iOS and Android that will take you on a breathtaking, colorful adventure. With endless battles and bountiful rewards, there’s a lot to uncover in this action-packed title from Ajoy Lab. There’s quite a bit to TapTap Heroes, so we figured we’d give you a rundown of the top reasons to give the game a try. Off we go!

It’s easy to get started, but there are a lot of layers hidden inside

TapTap Heroes is an idle game, which means the mechanics are pretty easy to dive into from the get-go. You can get started by simply tapping your way through battles, but as you grow more familiar with the game’s mechanics, you’ll find that there’s actually a good deal of strategy in there, too. You’ll need to build a balance team from over 200 heroes, learning which characters work together best. Plus there’s hundreds of weapons, skills, and equipment to discover and pair together. The possibilities are nigh endless.

The art is fantastic

While many mobile games suffer from cluttered UIs and information overload, TapTap Heroes features a streamlined interface that doesn’t skimp on color or design. The character designs are unique and showcase each hero’s distinct personality. Rather than more of the same, TapTap Heroes stands out on its own.

An endless stream of events and quests keeps things interesting

Developer Ajoy Lab is committed to providing a continuing stream of content for TapTap Heroes beyond the game’s debut this week. Expect to find weekly events and daily quests that offer exciting, limited-time chances to earn rare rewards and high-rank heroes.

There are rich multiplayer options

When you’ve had your fill of the game’s single-player game, TapTap Heroes has plenty of multiplayer activities to keep you busy. Compete against other players in the Arena to make your way through the rankings, or cooperate with your fellow adventures and join a Guild to take down Raid Bosses in epic battles.

There are no free-to-play hijinks

Perhaps most importantly, TapTap HeroesIs not pay to win. VIP features are set behind a premium paywall, but you can access them for free by levelling up your account if you don’t feel like investing cash in the game. Other than that, you won’t be limited to timers or any other free-to-play frustrations.

Ready to get started? You can find TapTap Heroes on the App Store and Google Play right now.

Dragon Nest is coming to mobile and we’re telling you exactly what to expect

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 18th, 2018

One of the East’s largest MMOJRPGs on PC, Dragon Nest is getting set to launch in North America on mobile as Dragon Nest M. The game has been specifically optimised and built from the ground up for the new platform, and if you’re curious to dive in be sure to pre-register for the game ahead of its launch this May.

Dragon Nest M is set to feature the same 3D adventuring actions series veterans have come to expect, with a story set against a familiar world and familiar gameplay. There are a few slight differences however. The mobile version will feature a no-lock battle system, for instance, letting you combine your skills freely during fights as in the PC version.

An MMORPG is no good without any multiplayer features, and Dragon Nest M is set to have people covered. Dungeons are the best example, allowing you to fight side-by-side with others before battling the big boss in a way that works for you. You can also build or join a Guild, fighting as one with your Guild members to conquer and save the continent of Altera once more.

Can’t wait to see what’s new for yourself? Pre-registration for Dragon Nest M is now open for those who want to get set for the game’s launch this May. Doing so means you’ll receive exclusive rewards and gifts unavailable anywhere else. Rewards that provide a little boost for those craving a slight advantage when first starting out.

Stay ahead of the pack when Dragon Nest M launches later this month, pre-register for the game today.

Sword Art Online: Integral Factor guide - Beginner's tips that are integral to success

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 30th, 2018

Sword Art Online: Integral Factor is a new free-to-play multiplayer role-playing game that can be overwhelming. It combines a lot of systems from different kinds of games and lumps them in with the fourth-wall breaking world of Sword Art Online. Lukcy for you, we’ve banged our heads against Integral Factor’s systems and discovered a pretty good road map for getting you started. See below:

Re-rolling 101

The first thing you need to know about Sword Art Online: Integral Factor is that it’s a gatcha-style game. Also known as a game with “loot boxes,” Integral Factor relies on players spending a premium currency to get a chance at unlocking powerful, rare items. Luckily, Integral Factor provides players with a generous amount of premium currency to spend right away, so if you don’t like what you unlock from the start, you can re-roll, meaning you delete the game, re-download it, and try again. It may be a little time consuming, but it can let you get the items you want without having to spend money.

Creature Quest definitely lives up to its name with a host of collectible creatures based on fantasy tales and world mythologies. To celebrate Creature Quest’s first birthday, we’re going to lay out what we think are the five best characters in the game. Let’s get to it.

5. Celestial Sentinel

The Celestial Sentinel is Creature Quest’s best healer, hands down. Not only can he resurrect and heal your party members, he’ll also restore your team members’ mana. If he dies, he can revive and heal the rest of your team, including himself. He’s the ideal safety net.

More monsters to collect and evolve in Creature Quest’s anniversary update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 12th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

A laid-back mix of RPG and TCG, Creature Quest is all about building your deck, evolving your creatures and winning in battle. It’s the creation of VC Mobile, set up by Might and Magic producer Jon Van Caneghem. There are elements of that classic PC game here, but for the most part, this is a modern, mobile experience. Now one year on from its launch, it's just received a new update with some big changes.

Firstly, you’ll gain more loot in the Battle Tower, making your fights more fruitful. You’ll also receive rewards on a sliding scale, based on how many of your creatures survive the fray, so the better you do, the more you’ll win. New players will also benefit from a week of check-in rewards and a Legendary creature to kickstart your deck.

You’ve also got two new automatic features to play with. Auto-battle lets you leave your captured creatures to handle the fight, while auto-pickup hoovers up the loot you stumble upon exploring quest maps. These optional features should make grinding less onerous.

The update introduces three new creatures to collect. The Legendary-level Cacaelia and Siege Construct and the Rare-level Lightning Nymph – a Battle Tower reward that is guaranteed to come with at least three Combo Dots.

Beyond the update’s under-the-hood tweaking, there’s a busy diary of in-game events and dungeon challenges planned. There’ll be a Valentine’s Day take-over and an exclusive quest, Battlefield of Love, between February 9-19. Creature Quest will get a St Patrick’s Day take-over in March, along with another one-off quest, the unsettlingly-titled Ooze Cruise. And there’s much more planned for 2018.

If you want to join the creature-catching, monster-battling fun, download Creature Quest for free on iOS and Android.

Dissidia Final Fantasy OO: How to master the Bravery system

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on February 6th, 2018

Dissidia Final Fantasy OO - Master the Bravery system

It's time to get brave. Specifically, we're going to talk about how to master the Bravery system that is at the very heart of combat in Dissidia Final Fantasy OO, which makes battles a matter of good timing even though they are 100 percent turn-based.

If you've played the Dissidia Final Fantasy console games, you already have at least an idea of how Bravery works. Every character has a Bravery or BRV score, which is displayed to the right of the health bars for the characters on your team and above the bars of your enemies.

Heroes and villains unite in Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia, now on mobile

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 1st, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Released in Japan last year, Opera Omnia is the first installment of Dissidia Final Fantasy to end up on the mobile platform. As with the other Dissidia titles, it throws together the greatest characters from the world of Final Fantasy to fight alongside each other. Now, publisher Square Enix (Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts) and developer Team Ninja (Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive) has launched the game worldwide. Time to dust off your gunblades.

The themes of the story will ring a bell if you’ve played a Dissidia Final Fantasy title before. A multidimensional safe-haven, Opera Omnia is a world forged by two gods to give tired warriors respite. But whilst familiar Final Fantasy faces were kicking up their heels in paradise, monsters found a way in. To restore zen, a magic moogle needs to collect ‘light’, and can only do so with your help. Assemble a band of famous heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy universe, and go to war with the unwelcome arrivals.

Battle in Opera Omnia is turn-based, taking place across eclectic arenas – from verdant woodlands to gothic chambers. Bravery is a new addition to combat. Charge your Bravery gauge through successive special attacks, and unleash it at the right time to strike a devastating blow.

The game features a lot of JRPG elements, but also allows for a multiplayer experience. Invite your friends online and you can fight monsters through rifts in space and time – and win rewards while you’re at it.
If you’re desperate to swing a Buster Sword as Cloud Strife again, or you’re just a fan of JRPGs and turn-based battles, you’ll find something to enjoy in Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia. You can download it for free from Google Play and the App Store.
