So you've finished the tutorial in Total War Battles: Kingdoms and you're sat staring at the map wondering what to do next. Well, fear not, because 148Apps has got some hints and tips right here for anyone who's just starting out.
The game can be a little bit confusing to start off with - especially if you're not used to massive strategy titles. But with these hints and tips you'll be building castles and knocking knights off their horses in no time.
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.
