With the roll of a die and a critical success, Paradox Interactive has announced Knights of Pen & Paper 2! You'll be taking your place at the table once again in this sequel to Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition. The game will introduce the new ruleset, new races such as Dwarves and Elves, an updated combat system, new crafting and loot, and the old 8-bit graphics have been tossed out for a sweet new 16-bit look. There is so much to get excited about!
“When you allow people at your company to dress up in wizard robes and suits of armor, sometimes you wind up with games like Knights of Pen & Paper 2,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive.
Start sharpening your swords and studying your spells, because Knights of Pen & Paper 2 is coming on May 14th.
Calculords, from Ninja Crime, is out on iOS. It's an interestingly themed game with old-school flair and several different elements. The gameplay itself is set in outer space, and it runs in single-player mode. There are 200+ cards to collect, and cards are cast using number puzzles. Cards disappear after being used, and if all cards are cleared the coveted "Calculord Bonus" is awarded.
The whole adventure is presented as a battle for planetary expansion. Success in the card element advances units across the battlefield to overrun the the enemy's base. Thus, strategy is an important consideration, and potentially adds to the experiment.
Calculords is available for free on the App Store.
