Scorcher guide - Tips and tricks for sand skimmers

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 12th, 2019

Scorcher is a solid runner that’s all about speed and smoothness. As a run progresses, things get faster and faster until you inevitably wreck.

Considering getting far in individual runs is the key to scoring big and unlocking new stuff, you’ll want to make sure you’re playing well. Here are a few tips that can help you do just that.

Brand new to mobile: Medieval Dynasty on iOS and Android

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 27th, 2019
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Robobot Studio has been busy making bot apps for a while now, from personal horoscope assistants to mobile joke tellers. With Medieval Dynasty, the studio has instead set its sights on the world of RPGs. This is no hack and slash MMO - it’s a multiple-choice strategy game that’s all about the consequences of your decisions.

The king is dead, and you’re taking up the mantle (or rather the jewel-encrusted crown). How will you deal with the challenges your kingdom faces across the ages? The game tests you with multiple-choice questions where each option has a different outcome. You’re given an idea of what an action will do, and the chance of success, but ultimately it’s down to you to decide what’s best for king and country.

Langrisser Mobile preview - Seminal TRPG series conquers touchscreen territory

Posted by 148Apps Staff on January 14th, 2019

Langrisser Mobile is set to finally break the revolutionary TRPG franchise's 20 year silence when it finally makes its way to touchscreens the world over at the end of the month.

The original Langrisser game (known as Warsong in the west) debuted on the Sega Mega Drive in 1991 and went on to spawn sequels on SNES, PC, Sega Saturn and PlayStation 2. However, none of those sequels ever received an offical release outside of Japan, so for many western gamers Langrisser has remained an unknown entity. Until now...

Set to land on iOS and Android devices on 22nd January, Langrisser Mobile is a pocketable spinoff that aims to bring an uncompromised TRPG experience to the palm of your hand. Here’s why fans should be pumped-up about its arrival on phones and tablets.

Miyamoto guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 2nd, 2019

Miyamoto can be a pretty tough roguelite for more reasons than one. Even if you stick with the game enough to wrap your mind around the minimal UI, your fights won’t exactly be easy.

But, with a little strategy and planning, it’s definitely possible to beat Miyamoto, even without saving up coins to purchase the most powerful leader units in the game. See below for some things to keep in mind while trying to make a run to beat Miyamoto.

Dragalia Lost - Resplendent Refrain Sabnock Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on December 3rd, 2018

Dragalia Lost's latest event, Resplendent Refrain, is an event that favors light Adventurers in an all new raid dungeon. This dungeon has four teams of four face off against the mighty Sabnock, which is probably the toughest raid fight in the game yet.

Although Sabnock is tough, he isn't unbeatable. We've been testing different ways to clear this raid and have been able to clear it consistently by following a few, simple guidelines. See below about how you too can start clearing the Sabnock fight:

Dragalia Lost - Ruler of the Shore Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 20th, 2018

The toughest part of every facility event in Dragalia Lost is the pesky wave-based challenge battles. These fights push your Adventurers to the limit with tons of enemies with huge amounts of health that can take you down easily if you’re not careful.

With A Wish to the Wind, this wave-based event is as hard as ever, but it is certainly passable. Check out a few handy tips on how to beat the Ruler of the Shore mission below:

Dragalia Lost guide - How to Close Out Kindness and Captivity Properly

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 8th, 2018

There's only a few more days left of Dragalia Lost's second raid event, Kindness and Captivity, and if you're anything like me, you've already cleared all of the Endeavors and maxed out the Gold Emblem rewards.

Even if you have done all of the high tier stuff in this event, there's still a few handy things you can keep doing for the next few days to make sure you're all set by the time Kindness and Captivity ends. See below:

Dragalia Lost guide - How to beat Hypnos Showdown

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 2nd, 2018

Dragalia Lost's second raid event dropped this week, and after speculating on everything you'd need to know to get prepared, we've spent some real time figuring out exactly how this raid works. As it turns out, everything we suggested would be useful turned out to be correct (fancy that!), but there are some other nitty-gritty details about beating Hypnos that we couldn't have possibly known until the event came out.

Now, after clearing Hypnos 21 times as of this writing (with 19 of those clears being expert and EX clears, mind you), I've gathered quite a few tips to make this fight a bit easier. See below:

Mad Rocket: Fog of War is deployed on mobile devices worldwide

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 30th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Move over, Clash of Clans. Step aside, Forge of Empires - there’s a new mobile base-builder in town, and Mad Rocket: Fog of War isn’t afraid to put its own stamp on the genre.

Published by Four Thirty Three, the game has just launched on iOS and Android off the back of a successful soft launch, during which player feedback was positive.

Mad Rocket is all about building and destruction, but it’s the Fog of War itself which really differentiates it from the competition. The game plays out on a tile-based map and enemy bases are completely shrouded in fog, which adds an extra layer of strategy.

Everything You Need to Know About Kindness and Captivity

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 29th, 2018

Halloween isn’t even here yet and Dragalia Lost’s Trick or Treasure holiday event is already over. That doesn’t mean we have nothing to look forward to on the 31st though.

On the contrary, at the end of this month, a brand spankin’ new event is coming, and it’s called Kindness and Captivity. There’s a little bit of info on that this event will be, and a lot of speculation about how best to prepare. Once again, we’ve gathered all this info in one convenient place so you know what to expect when this event goes live.

Element guide - Tips and tricks for planetary domination

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 29th, 2018

Element is a pretty neat sci-fi real-time strategy game that takes place on a spherical map. Although it streamlines quite a few elements of the genre to make things simpler on a touchscreen, the game can still be quite complicated and hectic.

If you spend too much time simply swiping to look around your planetary battlefield, your enemy can really build up momentum and steamroll you. With that in mind, check out these tips to help you in your galactic conquest.
