148Apps - MU Origin’s latest update will spoil you with new content and prizes

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Webzen is at it again, churning out a fresh stream of a new class, equipment, and mechanics for its flagship MMO, MU Origin. The game changes quite a bit in its new version update, but we assure you there’s something here for everyone. New multiplayer, refined systems, and more are sure to keep you busy for weeks to come. Here’s what you can expect from the latest patch.

It’s been a while, but MU Origin is introducing a new class at last, the Summoner. The Summoner uses their magical abilities to call upon Valkyrie, who will lay waste to your enemies in battle. You can create a summoner if you have at least one character at 3 Rebirth Level 1, or by using a Scroll of Dark Souls.

You can now create a Sub-Character, too, which should significantly change up the way you play. This “extra” character allows you to play as another class while keeping your Rebirth, Levels, Resources, States, Pets, and more. Equipment and skills won’t transfer between characters, but it should offer you more flexibility in battle. The Sub-Character can be unlocked by completing the quest, “Secret”, which is only available to character at 8 Rebirth Level 1. Once that’s done, you’ll need to pay up 1,500 Unbound Diamonds, and then the Sub-Character is yours.

If you’re looking for more Guild action, MU Origin has you covered in that department as well. The game’s newest Guild event, The Land of Struggle, will pit guilds against each other to be the fastest to defeat the event boss and deal the most damage. The event is ongoing every Wednesday-Friday. If your guild is victorious, you could win a number of fancy prizes, including Bound Zen, EXP, Contribution Points, and the Emperor Card.

You’ll find plenty of other treats sprinkled throughout, as well. The Forge is a new Refine system, while West Akeron is a new all-server area that lets you mingle will all players. Webzen is introducing a new CP Rewards System that gifts players special rewards based on their CP. For fashion forward players, you’ll now have access to the Blood Costume, and the Three Chicken Brothers are sure to please folks in the market for a new pet.

Ready to give MU Origin a go? You can play it for free right now on iOS and Android.

Why the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Sony Xperia XZ2 are not as good as the iPhone

Posted by Harry Slater on February 26th, 2018

Samsung Galaxy S9 product shot

Over the past couple of days we've seen two massive Android phones announced over at MWC. There's Samsung's Galaxy S9, and Sony's Xperia XZ2. Both of them are pretty impressive in terms of stats, and both companies seem to be focusing (if you'll excuse the pun) on releasing phones with impressive cameras.

But if you ask me, neither of the devices has the chops to knock the iPhone off the top spot, especially when it comes to gaming. Why's that you ask? Well give me a moment and I'll explain exactly what I mean.

ZPlay’s new iOS release, Inner Circle, may just drive you round the bend

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 8th, 2016

Pairing slick visuals with a frustratingly addictive premise, ZPlay’s Inner Circle is a must-play for anybody who enjoys a good time-sensitive puzzle game. Using a simplistic (but highly effective) layout, the game is opened up to a vast demographic of players – young and old.

To succeed at the game, players must work to line up rings of colour to match that of the ‘inner circle’, whilst the ring shrinks in size and looms closer to its orbit. If players don’t line up the colour before the ring hits the centre - by tapping the screen to rotate and swiping to shrink faster - they will lose the game.

With an impressive 250 levels to get stuck into, the title offers extensive gameplay and promises to get right under the skin of its players. Perfect for those who lean towards brain-training and cognitive challenges, with its Tetris-esque format.

Inner Circle possesses a selection of interesting features, including a night-mode to ensure the brightness of the nigh-neon colours doesn’t affect eyesight, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through levels indefinitely. The night modeis achieved by altering the colour scheme presented in the original version of the game.

The title will be available soon, for iOS devices, so keep circling in on that App Store!
