Fearless Fantasy is Fantastic for the iFone (it was worth a shot)

Posted by Rob Rich on March 27th, 2015

I actually had my first look at Fearless Fantasy last year at E3, but it was on a PC so there wasn't much for me to talk about. But now that I've been able to play with a pre-release version of the iOS build, there's quite a bit for me to talk about.

The story so far has been every bit as weird and it seems on the surface, thanks almost entirely to the oddball characters. What's impressive is that it all works. It's not just silly for the sake of silliness. Okay, well, it might be but it's actually pretty funny, and not in a "so awful it's good" sort of way, either.

The incredibly weird visuals struck me as a little off-putting at first, but once I got to see everything in motion it became very endearing. A lot of these enemies behave in extremely strage ways that you might not expect, and many of the combat animations are a combination of cool and surreal.

Combat mechanics and overall sructure are what really make Fearless Fantasy stand out on iOS, though. The story is broken up into several individuals levels, which are themselves made up of a set number of encounters. These encounters can be played (and replayed) on one of three different difficulties, and as you'd expect the rewards go up as the challenge increases. It's not just that enemies absorb and deal more damage, though - as you move from Casual through Normal and eventually on to Veteran the combat itself will get harder, with more complicated inputs required for both attacking and defending.

But oh, the combat. It's easily my favorite part of Fearless Fantasy so far and almost as easily my favorite approach to combat out of any iOS RPG I've played. When an enemy attacks, you'll have to perform a sort of mini-game where you'll be tapping on circles as the rings surrounding them close in or swiping through arrows in a specific pattern. The thing is, the harder the difficulty the more mobile these symbols are - to the point where you'll need to start familirizing yourself with the types of attacks most enemies like to use if you want to avoid failing to block.

Attacking works much the same way as defending, only if you mess up you deal less (or no) damage. What's great is that as each of the three characters gains more powerful abilities, they'll be able to string together longer chains of attacks for even greater potential damage. It also means that the mini-games get more complex, creating a cool synergy between a character's actions on-screen and your actions... on-screen. Whatever, it works really well and it's cool.

Fearless Fantasy hasn't graced the App Store with its presence yet, but you can be certain we'll let you know when it does. This is definitely a mobile RPG to keep an eye on.

Enter the World of a Psychopathic Neighbor in Party Hard

Posted by Jessica Fisher on March 11th, 2015

Next door a party rages on through the night, and you just can't take it anymore.

Party Hard, by tinyBuild, is a pixelated murderfest. You play as a psycho neighbor that only wants some peace and quiet. You enter the party and start picking everybody off one by one while trying to blend in and not get caught. The game is set to release this year, but tinybuild has not announced a firm date as of yet.

Until then you can wet your sadistic appetite with Party Hard's trailer.


Divide By Sheep, Plus Help from tinyBuild, Equals App Store Release Soon

Posted by Ellis Spice on February 17th, 2015

tinyBuild Games has announced that they are set to help bring the darkly comedic math puzzle game Divide By Sheep, which is being developed by Russian/Ukrainian studio Bread Team, to the App Store.

While there are lifeboats ready to carry the sheep away to safety, there's limited space on board - with hungry wolves and lasers adding to the player's problems - meaning care will be needed to ensure that they don't subtract from the woolly population too much. Among the hundred levels available there's also the Dark World, where multiplying the numbers on the Grim Reaper's death boat is the aim.

Divide By Sheep will be available on the App Store on a date soon to be calculated.

Fearless Fantasy Set to Bring Gesture-Based Surrealness to the App Store this Summer

Posted by Ellis Spice on June 18th, 2014

tinyBuild and Enter Skies have announced that their gesture-based turn-based RPG Fearless Fantasy is set to come to iOS later this Summer.

Described by the developers as "probably the weirdest RPG you’ll play this year," you play as Leon, the world's most dangerous bounty hunter, on a mission to slay the world's weirdest creatures and save a girl from an awful marriage. As well as the use of gestures to get critical hits, the game also features voice-overs, animated cut-scenes and "mildly disturbing boss fights."

Fearless Fantasy is set to arrive on the App Store later this Summer.
