Questing for good, for the betterment of all mankind, has its place. Adventuring for fun and profit, though, is where it's at.
That's exactly the mindset you'll need to succeed at Adventure Company, the team-based action RPG from Foursaken Media. Yes, the same folks who brought you War Tortoisewould now like to take you to a more conventional type of warfare, if by conventional you mean 60 different character classes, a wide variety of different weapons and skills, and fantasy enemies of every kind.
Block Fortress is a survival-style game that's as fun as it is blocky. It's also just gotten a rather sizeable update that adds a lot more cool stuff.
Foursaken Media has released a new trailer for their upcoming game, Heroes & Castles 2.
It's an action, strategy, castle defense game somewhat similar in play style to the classic Dynasty Warriors, and Heroes & Castles 2 will have you wading into the thick of it as you fight waves of enemies. The graphics look like they have gotten a signifigant upgrade since the first game, and we can't wait to see what else has changed.
While there is no official release date as of yet, you can sate your Heroes & Castles 2 lust momentarily with the trailer.

Puzzle to the Center of the Earth is a surprisingly deep and challenging puzzle platformer. Here are a few tips for players looking to stay alive while down in the depths.
Energy Management is Key
- Once you start using formulas, make sure you build combos of blocks toward your character and not away - The catalyst energy that allows for formula usage always drops at the end of a string of six blocks, so if you start linking blocks as far away as possible and move in, they are easier to get (see above). The combo on the left will end up dropping the red catalyst crystal in a hard-to-reach place significantly further down into the cavern whereas the combo on the right, which is the same exact structure, will drop the crystal right at your feet.
- Use moves wisely - Players begin every level with 20 energy and it costs 1 energy to interact with any amount of blocks. This means that dropping blocks or linking 4, 5, or 6 blocks all costs 1 energy. Since the ultimate goal is at the bottom of each level, using 1 energy to dig as far down as possible is generally a good strategy - at least in the beginning.
- Look for energy blocks - To help recoup energy, there are blocks in the world that have pieces of energy in them. These energy blocks give players 4 energy. Therefore, it's not necessarily worth going out of the way to mine an energy block if it costs more than 4 energy to get.

Phantom Rift from Foursaken Media is a deep adventure/role-playing game that centers around intense battles with enemy monsters. It plays a good deal like Capcom's Mega Man Battle Network, which thrived on the Game Boy Advance, and veterans of that series should be able to sink right into Foursaken's title.
But that doesn't mean surviving the Rift is easy. Here are some tips that will help keep you alive in this strange, dark world.
- The questions at the beginning of the game seem to influence the magic spells you receive - When you begin playing Phantom Rift, you're asked a brief series of questions about who you are. Do you like fighting with friends, or alone? Do you prefer fighting close-up, or from afar? The way in which you answer these questions seems to impact which spells you start the game with. For instance, if you say you prefer fighting up close, you should start off with an assortment of sword spells.
- Stuck? Talk to Wispin - Wispin is your guide in the Rift. If you're unsure of what to do next, tap on him to chat. He can help light the way. [Editor's Note: *rimshot*]
- Use energy sparingly - Early in Phantom Rift, you receive a ring that restores health at the cost of 30 energy. This is a valuable tool, and can mean the difference between life and death. That said, energy is very valuable as it's also used to buy spells, weapons, and armor. Instead of healing yourself with energy-consuming items, try restoring your health in-battle using spells.
Phantom Rift by Foursaken Media, is an adventure/RPG where players control a powerful wizard who has become lost in the Phantom Rift: a dark place full of man-eating monsters. Wizards will be tasked with side quests as they explore the world and meet NPCs.
A player's wizard is fully customizable with a full array of equipment. The five levels of rarity with passive abilities and different stats mean plenty of different combinations for collectors.
The innovation of Phantom Rift is its battle system. Similar to a card-based battle, players have a spell pouch that can hold up to 30 of the 120 unique spells that can be found in the game. Players can equip their wizard with different spells to form different strategies, focusing on things like elemental magic or summoning.
The game also has multiplayer integration. Wizards can fight in PvP battles and win spells from their enemies' pouch as trophies.
Foursaken Media is shooting for a September release for Phantom Rift.
