Overdox is a clever battle royale that changes things up by adding MOBA mechanics and melee combat to the mix. This new hybrid game can be quite a bit to take in at first, so we’ve put together a list of tips to help you get a leg up on the competition.
Bad North: Jotunn Edition can be cruel. You never quite know where your next attack is going to come from, and--even if you’re prepared for it--things might just not go your way.
This doesn't mean the game is random, but it does have a peculiar imprecision to it that you definitely have to get used to. If you find yourself struggling to make adjustments so you can finish a run successfully in this game, keep these tips in mind.
Void Tyrant is a card-based dungeon-crawler that doesn’t fit in the mold of other games in the genre. Between the Blackjack-style combat and strange gear system alone, you’re left to your own devices to figure out how best to use everything to your advantage to go on a deep run.
It doesn’t have to be this way though! I’ve been playing Void Tyrant constantly both before and after release. Here are some good general tips I’ve learned after many, many hours with the game:
Battles can take a long time in Void Tyrant. Even with all the animation and dialogue skip options turned on, everything in the game can feel like it plods along. This is especially true if you’re in a rush to get back to where you died on your last run. Because of this, it can be tempting to try and minimize combat time by tapping quickly through turns.
Avoid doing this at all costs! It’s so easy to make a careless mistake if you’re just trying to rush things along, and a single bad turn can end your run. Always check to see what your opponent has, what cards you can potentially play, and what you can afford to discard before deciding to hit or stand. Taking the time to do this will let you make much better decisions and—believe it or not—allow you to progress more efficiently.
Use ‘em if you’ve got ‘em
On any given run in Void Tyrant, you’ll likely get some consumable cards added to your deck. These special cards usually do not cost much EP to play, with the downside being they disappear from your deck when you use them.
You may be tempted to save and use these cards for when they could really make a difference (i.e. a boss fight), but that is potentially dangerous. As great as consumable cards are, they bloat your deck and make it less consistent. They could even lead to your downfall if you just hang on to too many of them for too long. Instead, just use consumables whenever they seem helpful, and your deck will stay lean and mean (not to mention that you'll also be alive).
Your energy—or EP—in Void Tyrant is perhaps the most valuable resource you have. It lets you pick and play all kinds of cards that can let you overcome the variability of the base combat system.
You should use this resouce as early and often as it is available, but you also shouldn’t squander it. This is to say you should never try to be “saving” EP, but you also should only spend it on cards that will actually give you an advantage in the moment. This might mean discarding more than just the one free discard you get on a turn to find exactly what you’re looking for.
If you do this, you’ll win a lot more rounds of combat, which restores your EP meter with every hit. Whenever things turn south, always remember you can play conservatively and defend against attacks, which allows you to earn back a good chunk of 10 EP.
Wild Bullets offers up fast and fun wild west action, but it has a good amount of strange mechanics to navigate. Between the game’s unique movement and all of its unlocks, there’s quite a bit to take in.
With that said, we put in a good amount of time into Wild Bullets for our review, so we’ve got some tips to help out anyone that’s new to the game. See below for some of our best advice:
When I first booted up Infectonator 3: Apocalypse, I was surprised by the sheer amount of stuff going on it. From crafting and leveling zombies to the intricacies of managing a wandering horde of braindead zombies, it can be overwhelming.
This is especially true since you're supposed to manage all this stuff while humanity is racing toward a cure to end your entire run, which would make you have to start the whole game all over again. If you're a newcomer to the Infectonator games, check out this handy little guide to help you in your efforts to infect the planet.
AFK Arena has a lot going on in it, to the point that it can be pretty confusing.

We'll be adding to this list periodically, so keep checking in here for updates!
AFK Arena may be a less intense form of a gacha game, but that doesn’t mean it’s totally straightforward. As with other games in this genre, there’s a bevy of systems, modes, currencies, etc. that you’ll want to be familiar with as soon as you start playing, regardless of whether you’ll be engaging with them immediately or not. This is especially true if you don’t plan on spending any money on it.
To help you hit the ground running in AFK Arena, check out these handy tips. All of them are sure to help you get a head start on understanding this fascinating gacha/idle hybrid.
Spellsword Cards: Demontide is a wonderful little single-player card game, but it can also be quite unforgiving. Parts of it definitely look and feel like Hearthstone, but you can’t just play this game like its your favorite collectible card game (CCG) and expect to do well.
Specifically, Demontide’s Campaign Mode will punish you heartily unless you learn a few key lessons that the game unfortunately doesn’t do a great job of teaching you. Luckily, I’ve put in many hours into the game as of this writing and can step in to help any card battler that’s been banging their head against Demontide’s tough Campaign with some tips. See below:

Miyamoto can be a pretty tough roguelite for more reasons than one. Even if you stick with the game enough to wrap your mind around the minimal UI, your fights won’t exactly be easy.
But, with a little strategy and planning, it’s definitely possible to beat Miyamoto, even without saving up coins to purchase the most powerful leader units in the game. See below for some things to keep in mind while trying to make a run to beat Miyamoto.
Twinfold may look like a cheap Threes! clone at first glance, but it's so much more than that. It's actually a rather deep roguelite with a really satisfying difficulty curve and almost endless replayability.
Since the game's depth does take some digging to understand, your first few games of Twinfold might not go so well. Check out these tips to help you improve your game faster.
Dragalia Lost's latest event, Resplendent Refrain, is an event that favors light Adventurers in an all new raid dungeon. This dungeon has four teams of four face off against the mighty Sabnock, which is probably the toughest raid fight in the game yet.
Although Sabnock is tough, he isn't unbeatable. We've been testing different ways to clear this raid and have been able to clear it consistently by following a few, simple guidelines. See below about how you too can start clearing the Sabnock fight:
Dragalia Lost might seem like it’s all about the gacha at first, but there’s quite a bit more to the game than just hoping you pull the best Adventurers, dragons, and Wyrmprints, out of the virtual slot machine. If you truly want to master and conquer high level content in this game, it’s more important to know what you’re doing with what you have than just spending time and/or money to try and get a chance at something better.
Take weapons, for instance. Weapons are some of the most important items in Dragalia Lost, yet there’s no random component to them at all. From the start of the game, every player gets the chance to craft and upgrade any and all kinds of weapons that they want, and these are items that are more important than both dragons and Wyrmprints. That said, weapons can use a ton of materials to craft and upgrade, so you want to be judicious about what weapon work you do and when. Check out some tips below to make the most of your weapons in Dragalia Lost.
It's been exactly two months since Dragalia Lost's release, and–although it isn't exactly what you'd expect from the likes of Nintendo–it has retained a strong following because of how often its events have come along. Since release, there have been four distinct events complete with unique challenges and rewards that really makes the game feel dynamic and worth sticking with.
This trend is showing no sign of stopping, as Dragalia Lost's fifth event is on the horizon. Resplendent Refrain is coming hot of the heels of the wind-based facility event, A Wish to the Winds, and promises another difficult raid for players to try and tackle cooperatively. Details are still a little scant on what Resplendent Refrain will contain specifically, but see below for some expert analysis of what to expect given what we know:
The toughest part of every facility event in Dragalia Lost is the pesky wave-based challenge battles. These fights push your Adventurers to the limit with tons of enemies with huge amounts of health that can take you down easily if you’re not careful.
With A Wish to the Wind, this wave-based event is as hard as ever, but it is certainly passable. Check out a few handy tips on how to beat the Ruler of the Shore mission below:
