Orcs. You know them. You love (to kill) them. But it's hard to get excited about playing as them in this uninspired RTS.

It’s been a long time coming, but Disco Pixel’s Jungle Rumble is almost upon us!

Jungle Rumble is very much a rhythm game. It’s also kind of a real time strategy game. It’s being described as “Patapon meets Advance Wars” and I have to say it doesn’t seem too far from the truth. Controlling your monkey (or squads of monkeys) is simply a matter of tapping your commands in time with the beat. Move, run, toss coconuts, that sort of thing. The goal was to make an iOS rhythm game that allows the player to make decisions rather than simply trying to stick to a specific script or pattern.

I have to admit Jungle Rumble feels pretty good. It doesn’t necessarily look like it from the screen shots but it really does call to mind games like Patapon in a very pleasant way. I had a little trouble keeping the rhythm at times but I’m fairly certain that had more to do with a noisy show floor than anything. Still, I’m interested in seeing how it plays in a much quieter setting.

Jungle Rumble should be releasing within the next couple of weeks (probably). I didn’t get a set number for the price, but it’s definitely going to be a premium game because the folks at Disco Pixel “don’t want to monkey around with micro-transactions.” Yeah.

Atlus has announced that its cult classic first-person RPG title, Shin Megami Tensei, has been translated into English for the first time, and is due out soon for iOS devices.

The game is a delightfully retro-ish looking title, and involves the collection of demons that can be summoned to fight in battles that make up a good portion of the game. In the end, the future of the world is at stake.

For folks who cut their teeth gaming in the early 90s, Shin Megami Tensei will be an exciting blast from the past; it is due out on the App Store for $7.99 on March 18.

AirMech is a free to play futuristic RTS with a huge online multiplayer following. Over a million players already on desktop. The mobile version is in testing right now and could be available within a couple months. But, like many things, it’s all about timing.

The main goal of the mobile version – which Carbon Games Co-Founder James Green isn’t really sure they will make money on – is really to give players a choice of where to play. The ability to play on the move and while away from their PCs is a promising idea for many AirMech players.

New App: Autodesk Starforce Battlement

iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Autodesk is known for computer assisted drawing apps from the way back, but this is a real-time strategy game that shows off their new Autodesk Scaleform Mobile SDK, which features hardware accelerated graphics and streamlined mobile deployment, so there.

The year is 3072 and humanity is at war. Galactic colonization brought about a golden age for humanity, filled with abundant resources and a new way of life. But greed is never far when wealth is at stake. Humanity has broken into two factions: the United Earth Alliance (UEA) and the Outlier Forces, a rebel group who will stop at nothing to steal wealth and resources from the UEA.

You are a general in the UEA and it’s your job to defend colony outposts throughout the galaxy. You have a full arsenal at your disposal: UEA mechs, tanks, infantry, and the ability to call in orbital strikes.

Hero Academy, Editor’s Choice winning app here at 148Apps, has updated to its 1.2 version to include various game improvements and additions to the game.

Additions to the game are a new team and playfield. The new team is called “The Tribe,” an aggressive team that can finish off weak opponents and crystals in one short move. Characters in the Tribe include the Warrior (can instantly knock out enemies under 50% health), the Axe Thrower (extra damage to weak enemies), the Witch (explodes fallen enemies), the Shaman (chain healing), and the Chieftain (an AOE fighter with a charge and a pull). A Tribe-themed playfield has also been added with the team.

Hero Academy has also added iPad support and a few tweaks to improve the game, including bigger buttons and a larger gameplay area that will help to improve the precision and speed at which players can play Hero Academy. Players can also now undo single items instead of undoing every single move made in a turn, making quick mistakes a little less frustrating. Adjustments to Council and Dwarves (temporarily on sale) were also made for the sake of balance.

Check out Hero Academy, the download is free.

Sometimes it’s not the external threat of invasion that is dangerous, but rather what’s happening inside one’s own body. That’s the premise of the upcoming Tentacle Wars, a real-time strategy game in which players dive inside the body of an alien and take control of its last antibody cell in the hopes of fighting off the infection that will kill the creature.

As the trailer shows, gameplay revolves around utilizing uninfected antibody cells to send out “tentacles” to purify the contaminated cells. The infection won’t just sit back and let you kill it though, as it will send out tentacles of its own to try and weaken and convert the few healthy cells you have left. This push/pull mechanic should make for some intense battles, and in many ways reminds of us Eufloria on a cellular scale.

Tentacle Wars will be out on the iPad in April, with an iPhone version planned to launch later in the year. If you can’t wait another minute then feel free to try out the Flash version of the game to tide you over.
