Everplay Interactive is partnering with CookieBit to bring iOS users Horde of Heroes. The game melds Match-3 gameplay and RPG elements to create a medieval fantasy that has upgradeable equipment and quests.

Everplay Director Kris Jones says: “We are attempting to break into the popular puzzle genre by combining hardcore elements with a casual experience, all while keeping Everplay’s snarky humor, retro art-style, and pick-up and play personality. Being free to play allows us to bring Horde of Heroes to the widest audience possible by eliminating the paid barrier of entry. To ensure that we made our free to play experience as fair and fun as possible, we made each member of our team complete the game without spending any money.”

9to5Mac has gotten the low-down on Rovio’s newest Angry Birds title, Angry Birds Epic. And it seems as though it’s not the sort of game we were expecting.

Rather than giving players something akin to Angry Birds in a medieval/fantasy setting, Angry Birds Epic is going to be a turn-based RPG with a crafting system of sorts. Color me intrigued. No, seriously, it sounds far more interesting than yet-another physics puzzle game.

Angry Birds Epic will be “soft launching” in Canada and Australia soon.

In partnership with Kongregate, Emerald City Games has released its exciting new strategy-based tactical RPG entitled Lionheart Tactics. The game takes you into turn-based battle, putting you in command of over 15 different classes, and requires you to use your wits to “take advantage of the terrain and your enemy’s weaknesses.”

The game allows you to train up to 30 of your own heroes, slowly but surely upgrading their equipment and trainable skills. Emerald City Games boasts that Lionheart Tactics is not just an action packed battle game, but includes a “rich, and sometimes witty” story as well. The game features beautiful 3D graphics, but if you want a better idea of what Lionheart Tactics is you should probably just watch the trailer below; you’ll see why Kongregate partnered with Emerald City to make this game happen.

You can grab Lionheart Tactics for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch today on the App Store for free, and be on the lookout for out official review.
