Forgotton Anne, from developer ThroughLine Games, is a gorgeous, hand-animated puzzle-platformer that’s now making its way to iOS. You can pre-order ahead of its release, and you’d be doing yourself a favour as the game’s really rather good.

It boasts a stunning Ghibli-like world, brought to life to by hand-animated visuals created using the same techniques behind the likes of Howl’s Moving Castle and My Neighbour Totoro. And the stunning, soaring orchestral score, performed by the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, is just another one of the many ways the game immerses you in its affecting story of the Forgotlings; living mislaid objects who long to be remembered.

Webzen’s acclaimed MU Origin 2 recently launched on iOS and Android, shaking up the MMORPG genre in the process. It’s a huge game with a lot of different systems and modes to learn, so we’ve put together a handy beginner’s guide to give you a head start on the competition.


Selecting your starter class

After booting up the game for the first time, you’ll be presented with a choice of three different starter classes. First off, there’s the nimble, angelic Elf whose long-range attacks and assassination skills can devastate any enemy. The overwhelmingly powerful Dark Knight is a master of swordsmanship, though he still prefers to crush any demons with his immense strength. Then there’s the Dark Wizard, a mage of sorts, whose expert manipulation of the elements makes him a deadly force from afar.

If you just can’t make up your mind, and I don’t blame you, you could try them all out for a bit using any of the 4 character slots.

MU Origin 2, Webzen’s highly anticipated MMORPG, is out now for Android and iOS

Having successfully left its closed beta phase, MU Origin 2 is no longer available for pre-registration – because it’s now entered its full release. It’s a fully-fledged 3D MMORPG and the second spin-off based on the Webzen’s popular MU universe, merging magical fantasy elements with satisfying gameplay in a mobile experience primed to be shared with others.

Your journey in Mu Origin 2 begins by selecting one of three character classes: Dark Knight, Dark Wizard and Elf. Each one boasts their own diverse gameplay mechanics and upgrade potential, which makes conquering dungeons as part of a team even more meaningful. You engage in combat entirely in real-time, fighting off rival factions and bosses in a bid to prove yourself the best.

Explore an epic fantasy world in MMORPG MU Origin 2, set to launch on May 28th

Webzen have just announced the official launch date for its stunning MMORPG ‘MU Origin 2’ which will arrive for iOS and Android on May 28th. It will be the second spinoff from the classic PC-based MU Online, and it looks to further refine the fantasy action and storytelling that made the series such a hit to begin with.

You’ll start your journey by selecting one of three starter classes. There’s the overwhelmingly powerful Dark Knight; the spell-casting, staff-wielding Dark Wizard; and the cunning Elf. Once that’s out of the way, you can band together with other players to start uncovering the world and its many vast dungeons.

Loot is plentiful and always powerful, though the real-time combat remains skill-based. If you’re feeling especially confident, you could test your mettle in PvP battles against rival players and guilds. And for those who aren’t looking for a fight, there’s the option to instead complete puzzles together.

The game has already found much success following its launch in China, South Korea, and South-East Asia. Given the hugely positive reaction, it makes sense that Webzen plans to continue supporting the game with daily dungeons and field quests.

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.
