Ok, so if you're like me, you've been playing (and sometimes waiting) your way through AFK Arena, only to learn there's a lot more to it than there appears on the surface. There's guilds, a PvP arena, and all sorts of other systems and game modes to pay attention to, and–quite frankly–it can be confusing.

Today, I want to demystify one of the more unique game modes in AFK Arena, the Arcane Labyrinth. This is a quasi-roguelite mode where you take the units you've been powering up and try to battle your way through three floors of a dungeon. It just so happens that this dungeon is full of super powerful enemies, amazing loot, and permadeath. If you've been looking around for tips on how to navigate this labyrinth successfully, then look no further! We have everything you need here.

Spellsword Cards: Demontide guide - Tips and tricks for Campaign Mode

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 11th, 2019

Spellsword Cards: Demontide is a wonderful little single-player card game, but it can also be quite unforgiving. Parts of it definitely look and feel like Hearthstone, but you can’t just play this game like its your favorite collectible card game (CCG) and expect to do well.

Specifically, Demontide’s Campaign Mode will punish you heartily unless you learn a few key lessons that the game unfortunately doesn’t do a great job of teaching you. Luckily, I’ve put in many hours into the game as of this writing and can step in to help any card battler that’s been banging their head against Demontide’s tough Campaign with some tips. See below:

The Elder Scrolls: Blades guide - How to get what you want out of it without playing it

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 1st, 2019

Were you disappointed by The Elder Scrolls: Blades? You're not alone. It's a bad game that gives off one of the worst first impressions I've ever seen.

If Blades was your first foray into mobile games in a while though, I feel for you. Why? Because Blades is a poor representation of what mobile gaming can be. It plays into the platforms worst tendencies, but there are lots of mobile games out there that don't do this and are better for it.

In fact, there are quite a few games available right now on the App Store that can give you exactly what you might have wanted from Blades but didn't get. Don't believe me? I made a whole list to prove it. See below:

REKT! guide - Is the latest content update worth it?

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 14th, 2019

When REKT! first came out, I was impressed with the game’s ability to channel the gameplay of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in a small, streamlined package. Be that as it may, I was also pretty underwhelmed with the game’s lack of content.

Fast-forward a year and a half and REKT! now has quite a bit more stuff in it. Given that the game is now more fleshed-out than ever, I went ahead and dove back into REKT! to see if it feels like more than the proof of concept it felt like at launch.

Everything you need to know about GameClub

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 12th, 2019

Game preservation is a problem. When games go out of production, hardware decays, titles get removed from digital storefronts, etc. there’s not a lot of recourse for players to return to titles they once loved. This is a particularly big issue for mobile games, since Apple has proven on multiple occasions that they do not care about games on their store, much less old ones.

Thankfully, there’s some folks out there who recognize this and have have decided to do something about it. GameClub is a new developer that just announced last week their dedication to “bringing awesome premium games back to mobile.” Although they’re only in their early access phase, they’ve already proven they’re up for task. Here’s what you need to know about GameClub, including instructions on how to get into their early access program.
