If you are looking for a new turn-based builder strategy contained on a hex grid, then boy are you in luck as the new game Odokonia fulfils your incredibly specific requests. Grab your friends and proceed to completely obliterate them in some good old-fashioned explosive fun.
Odokonia is a strategy game where players build up bases around a randomised map in a turn-based fashion, and then delve into the fog of war to find and eliminate each other. There is an incredible amount of synergy between units here, such as soldiers being able to man turrets on boats or dive from them onto enemies for a spot of piracy.
Back in my adolescence, more years ago than I care to admit nowadays, I was enamoured with a little strategy game called Age of Empires 2, howdoyouturnthison amirite? It was and has remained, an iconic entry in the series, and soon we can enjoy this strategy staple on the go with Age of Empire Mobile.
Many hands will be involved with this project, with TiMi Studio Group, World’s Edge, and the team behind the Age of Empire franchise all working together. We got our first teaser of the title in a recent showcase event, along with an announcement that testing will begin soon.
Free up your diary for February 29th, as Bluepoch has announced the impending release of the award-winning Reverse: 1999s Version 1.4 update. The Prisoner in the Cave is an Ancient Greece-themed update with new recruits, gameplay modes, and plenty of rewards to gain.
Let’s start where we all like; the new firepower. Phase one brings us the Beyond the World of Matters banner, which increases the odds to draw the six-star arcanist named 37, a powerful Mental attacker who can increase their team's ATK. Phase two comes with the Seeker in the Cave banner, which offers another six-star called 6, a mysterious character with little information at the moment.
As I have mentioned a few times, I love silly, stupid humour, but it is even better when it is backed by substance, which is why BROK the InvestiGator hitting mobile is quite interesting. It has a name that makes you laugh, but there's a lot behind it.
The game follows the adventures of Brok, a former boxer turned detective in a world where animals have replaced humans. He lives with GRaff, the son of his deceased wife, in a world of two halves. The rich live in a protective dome, whereas the others struggle to survive outside amidst the ambient air pollution.
Throughout my life, I would call myself a fan of precisely one artwork, otherwise I, like many other people ruined by this generation, lack the attention span for brushstrokes and the like. If there were more games like Please, Touch The Artwork 2 though, that might change, as it brings some interactivity to the frames.
Developed by the one-man army of Studio Waterzooi, this new virtual gallery is composed entirely of works by James Ensor, a Belgium Moder Art pioneer, and a man who, through the eyes of this non-expert, painted some pretty weird yet somehow captivating works. I’m no art critic, but I am a connoisseur of weird, and I can approve of these.
Tower of God: New World is harbouring a few fugitives in latest collaboration with The Seven Deady Sins
Tower of God: New World has a good track record with big collaborations and incredibly generous rewards, and now Netmarble has landed another top name, with the ongoing team-up with The Seven Deadly Sins, including three new characters and a bevvy of events to complete.
If you need some defence, take a look at the SSR+ [The One] Escanor. The Lion Sin of Pride is a hulking brute of a man when the sun is up, becoming invincible for a minute when the clock hits noon. He comes packing skills such as Critical Hit, Stunning and more, and will perform admirably as a Tank.
Playing games is fun, we all know this, which makes them the perfect medium to teach people about important issues. Who doesn’t learn better when they enjoy themselves? Our latest piece of infotainment comes from OtE Productions, and is called Electric Blue: Gecko Dash.
The game aims to raise awareness of the Electric Blue Gecko, also known as the Williams’ Dwarf Gecko, as it sits in the rather worrying threatened category due to poachers. You will take control of the titular lizard as you slip through the hands of the evil thieves to get back to your screwpine tree home.
It's time to man those defences and load those guns, as FunPlus announces the impending State of Survival Doomsday Open Season 2 competition. Take some time out from killing zombies and turn those guns on your friends, as any player can enter for a chance to be the ultimate survivor.
The registration stage is underway, lasting until February 16th, so if you want to get involved make it quick. It only started February 12th - they certainly didn’t want to mess around much getting this one set up. For players and alliances interested in taking part, jump in-game and sign up.
It is that sacred week for all those who enjoy showing their stuff on the dancefloor and dressing in fabulously extravagant gear, as Carnival is in full swing in Rio de Janeiro. And where there is a party, there is a designated driver, or in the case of Planes Control, a designated pilot.
Thanks to Planes Control, you will be in charge of flying these festival revellers to and from the bustling city from February 16th all the way to March 6th. The Carnival itself ends on the 17th, but let’s not tell the flyers that. It will be a nice surprise when they land and the dancing has already stopped.
NetEase Games has announced the return of the Beacon Festival to Infinite Lagrange, a celebration of those lifesaving space lights. A large part of spacefarers' life worth noting, and the theme of this year’s Beacon Festival is Galaxy Reformation, commemorating those who lit the lifesaving lights.
One of the biggest additions to the game in this update is the UAV Carrier, a special vessel that revolves around the titular UAV system. Any ship stored in its hander will find itself equipped with UAV, enchanting its combat prowess and allowing it to become an even more deadly force.
Netmarble has recently updated Seven Knights Idle Adventure with so much new content you will think it is already Christmas again. There are two new modes, some special Lunar New Year celebratory events, an expansion to the Tower of Infinity, and four powerful new Legendary Heroes to collect.
Kicking off our lineup of heroes is Rakshasa. This ranged unit will boost the Critical Hit chance of Defensive allies. A neat trick to bring a little more damage, but perhaps not the most useful buff. Lee Jung, on the other hand, grants himself a shield equal to his maximum health after Taunting, resulting in a very stable brick wall for enemies to throw themselves against.
Xiao can draw opponents towards her at a distance, and impart a Silence debuff on them,perfect to help dismantle the opponent's long-ranged glass canons, get them close and stop their damage. Finally, Medea will be perfect in fights against Nightmare Boss Monsters, imparting a damage buff to allies after she attacks the foul fiend.
After recruiting your new friends, put them through their paces with the introduction of the Fang of the Glacier ten-player dungeon. Alternatively, take them a trip into the heavens as the Tower of Infinity heads up to the 1,000th floor with stages 9,601 through 10,400 opening their lofty doors.
For those out there who have seen and done it all, there is a new, devilishly difficult mission to undertake; the Nightmare Stage mode. Only available after reaching the final stage, it will be a true task of your prowess. Complete it, and you will earn Medea and Elixirs to help your new friends grow in no time.
Finally, it is all of our favourite things; free stuff, lasting through till February 21st. The Sweet Valentine’s Carnival Event is dangling the Legendary Hero Bathory to get players to engage with it, and the new units Rakshasa and Xiao are sitting in the Rate-Up Event. You can also grab a host of gifts through the Lunar New Year Check-In Event, earning a Lucky Pouch and a Seven Knights Hero Selection Ticket just for logging in.
It is a hard rule that news writers across any medium must remain unbias and report facts, this is an immutable law that must always be followed. Having said that, allow me a few brief moments to throw all that in the garbage and enthuse about the office release of a game I personally have been most intrigued by; iLLANG.
iLLANG is based on the classic party game of Mafia, also known as Werewolf, Village, or something to this effect. It is a social deduction game where the players must uncover who amongst them is the wolf in sheep's clothing waiting to strike, and in this case, the metaphor is quite apt, as someone is a literal wolf.
Card and board games like Uno and Munchkins have become so popular due to this universal fact - chaos is fun. Seeing the look on your loved one's faces as you destroy their shot at glory is devilishly delightful, and now the same treatment is coming to the world of Snakes and Ladders thanks to developers Algorocks' upcoming title; Dadoo.
The aim is simple - make it to the end of the snakes and ladders-inspired board. To get there, though, you will need to fend off three other players all stocked up with ways to overtake, bamboozle, or simply destroy your progress. Pick your character, build your deck, and prepare for carnage.
There is a huge range of cards for players to collect and use in order to gain an edge and make it to the end. You can manipulate dice rolls with Double Trouble to roll more, throw a Confusion on your opponents to force them to reverse their movement, or if you are feeling particularly mean, hit them with both.
Despite all the, let's be frank, backstabbing that will be going on, fun is at the forefront of Dadoo. That is why no card is designed to be overly broken. Obtaining a rare card does not necessarily ensure victory, and that is just the way things should be. Add this to the game's range of different boards and dozens of tactical options, and you have the recipe for an endlessly fun party night classic.
Algorocks CEO, Adib, announced the title by saying:"We created Dadoo from a shared passion for board games and the joy of laughing together. In today's busy world, carving out time for such moments can be challenging. Dadoo is our answer - a game designed to spark joy and togetherness, accessible anytime, anywhere.”
Android players can get their hands on Dadoo now and experience the fun of sabotage through Google Play, with an iOS version following later this year.
