Pre-register now for endless superhero runner Talking Tom Hero Dash

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 16th, 2019

Talking Tom Hero Dash is set to take the ever-popular Talking Tom and Friends franchise in a brand new direction as it opens pre-registration to players worldwide. Not only does it promise to be a beautifully rendered, fast-paced, action-packed endless runner, but it will also add a never-before-seen superhero twist to the Talking Tom and Friends universe.

The game’s story centers around Talking Tom and his friends as they set out on a mission to thwart a gang of raccoons that have been causing a trail of destruction wherever they go. Fortunately for Tom and co., their mysterious mentor has gifted them with some rather awesome superhero abilities (as well as some epic new outfits) to help get the job done.

Superhero-themed Talking Tom Hero Dash is a thrilling endless runner

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 13th, 2019

One of the exciting releases that we’re looking forward to is Talking Tom Hero Dash, an upcoming superhero-themed runner created by Outfit7. This new game is an action-packed endless runner that takes you on an epic adventure to assemble the ultimate team of heroes – Talking Tom Heroes – and save the world from a pack of nefarious raccoons.

Talking Tom and Friends remains one of the biggest names in mobile gaming, with the series having branched out into different genres and even different mediums with an award-winning animated series. And while Talking Tom Hero Dash might not be Outfit7’s first go at the endless runner genre, it manages to really set itself apart with its neat superhero premise and varied, highly-detailed levels.

Talking Tom Heroes are a super powered team consisting of fan-favourite characters like Talking Tom, Talking Hank, Talking Ben, Talking Angela, and Talking Ginger. However, they’ve all been kidnapped by a band of raccoons and hidden in locations around the world, leaving Tom alone to reassemble the team and save the day.

All five of the playable levels have been vandalised in the chaos, so you’ll need to collect coins and gradually rebuild the iconic landmarks and buildings in each location. And, eventually, restoring a level to its former glory will lure out a powerful raccoon boss.

Tom is unlocked from the start, though a new playable character will become available every time you defeat one of the bosses. The 3-lane runner action is made even more exciting when you factor in each character’s unique gadgets and powers. Some can temporarily fly, while others make use of an awesome hoverboard.

To experience even more of the adventures of Talking Tom Heroes, go to YouTube to check out the animated series of the same name that Outfit7 has created.

Preregistrations for Talking Tom Hero Dash will open on May 15! Stay tuned – we’ll share the link!

What to expect from MU Origin’s April update

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The 1,000th day since MU Origin hit global stores is just around the corner — so what better time for another update? This April, players can expect fresh content to delve into, including new ways to fight rival players and a new realm to go explore.

First things first, there’s a new clan system to unlock, allowing you to join forces with four other players to take on rivals. Costing 500 unbound diamonds, forming a clan grants you access to Clan Arena and Clan Assault, two player-versus-player options to sate your appetite for competition. Clan Arena pits your five players against another clan of five in a battle to the death. Once one clan is entirely defeated, the fight is over and the rewards are dished out. You’ll receive clan honour points even if you lose, which can be exchanged for rare items at the in-game store, so it’s worth joining in. Then there’s Clan Assault, which takes 64 of the top-ranked clans in Clan Arena and sets them against each other in a tournament. Fight each clan one by one and aim to be the last clan standing for big rewards. Making your job that bit harder is the fact that you can’t depend on buffs, potions or auto-combat during Clan Assault, so you better be on top form. Clan Assault is held on the ninth day of every month.

Globesweeper puts a 3D spin on the classic puzzler Minesweeper

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Long before Minecraft came along to take the crown of 'most played' game, there was another goliath PC game with 'Mine' in its title which held that distinction - Minesweeper.

Those with long memories of dial-up broadband and insanely heavy cathode-ray monitors will no doubt fondly remember the popular puzzle game, and will be pleased to hear that its just been revamped with the launch of Globesweeper.

Globesweeper is an entirely three dimensional take on the original game, applying Minesweeper's grid-based format to an array of spheres and cubes which you can click, rotate, and solve in space. It also adds two extra grid modes (hexagonal and triangle) to accompany the original square style. Other than that Globesweeper pretty much stays true to Minesweeper's puzzle formula - having you uncover squares to reveal numbers and (hopefully) avoid mines.

Onmyoji is celebrating its anniversary with an update full of fresh content

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 2nd, 2019
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

NetEase has a deep well to dip into when it comes to sourcing new content for Onmyoji. The game is set during Japan’s Heian period, when elaborate folk tales of spirits – or shikigami – were fire-side favourites. In the world of Onmyoji, though, these stories are real. With this anniversary update, the JRPG welcomes new shikigami to its universe, as well as new chapters to complete.

The first new shikigami is Jinmenju. This powerful tree spirit has a grudge against humanity, and the vivid red flowers which bloom on his bark spell nothing but bad news for his enemies (or good news for the onmyoji who commands him).

Huge new update for fantasy RPG Final Blade adds new chapters, costumes, and modes

Posted by 148Apps Staff on March 16th, 2019
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The hit fantasy RPG Final Blade arrived on western shores last month to much acclaim, thanks in large part to its successful mix of vibrant visuals, rich storytelling, and classic RPG mechanics. Now, the game is set to receive a whopping new update that adds a varied selection of fresh content.

Perhaps the most exciting addition arriving via this update are the 4 new story chapters. Where exactly they’ll be taking us, and what sort of challenges we can expect, still remains under wraps. That being said, we do know that the five new characters we’ll be seeing – Susu, Xuxian, Qingqing, Mengxiao and Fahai – are all entangled in the story of the White Snake.

In terms of loot, these chapters will prove to be a great way of earning that all-important 6-star gear. And if you’re looking for some fresh styles to spice up your wardrobe, the update also adds 4 unlockable costumes. In the mix, you’ve got a bunny girl costume, a school uniform, and two rather unique-looking swimsuits.

Then there’s the new mode, known as Dowha Gate. Here, you’ll be required to employ your best strategies to defend the gate against an overwhelming invasion. While it may initially be reminiscent of the game’s Strategy Defence mode, Dowha Gate comes packing plenty of its own quirks and challenges. And if you do somehow overcome all the odds and find yourself victorious, you’ll be rewarded with a massively powerful 6-star hero.

If you’re yet to take the epic Final Blade for a spin, this latest update just makes it all the more enticing. So I’d recommend heading on over to the App Store or Google Play where the game is available for free.
