MONSTER HUNTER FREEDOM UNITE for iOS Review

Review CAPCOM By Alex Beech, 3 months, 3 weeks ago
MONSTER HUNTER FREEDOM UNITE for iOS Review

When starting Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS, it helps to know what you're getting into. It promises you the chance to bring down monstrous creatures in a fantasy equivalent of big game hunting, but it makes you work for every moment of enjoyment. Before heading into the field you have to familiarise yourself with the basics. As a port of a PSP title, there are a lot of controls crammed onto your touchscreen. The result is confusing mash of context dependent virtual st…

Warhammer Quest has had its price smashed

Warhammer Quest has had its price smashed

Rodeo Games’s interpretation of Games Workshop’s table-top board game Warhammer Quest has juat had its price dropped on the App Store. This strategic turn-based strategy game is a fantastic interpretation of the old board game. Drawing on a cast that spans from archers to wizards, you must build a squad of suitably stereotypical fantasy fighters to take on quests. With dozens of dungeons and other subterranean areas to journey through you will have to master all of the game’s tactics, magic, and big swords if you hope to emerge victorious against the forces of chaos. Careful construction of your team is vital. Archers prove invaluable at range, but placing one in front…

Expansive 3D RPG The Shadow Sun gets hefty price reduction

Developer Ossian Studios has sliced the price of its fantasy RPG The Shadow Sun by more than half. The Shadow Sun has you controlling your hero from a third-person perspective through a 3D world. There are ten hours of story to quest your way through, made up of 70 different areas, all filled with their own dangers and secrets. The Shadow Sun takes clear inspiration from other Western-styled fantasy RPGs. This should come as no surprise considering it was developed by industry veterans whose collective works include contributions to Neverwinter Nights, Baldur’s Gate, and The Witcher. The limited time sale has cut The Shadow Sun's price from £5.49 / $7.99 to £1.99…

Digital edition of classic board game Talisman receives multiplayer update

Based on Games Workshops's Talisman board game, Talisman Prologue HD came to the App Store nearly a year ago. Now, it has finally received its long promised multiplayer update, allowing you to quest with friends locally or online.

However, the boardgame was originally designed to be played by numerous players at once. With 10 different characters choose from, each with their own strengths and alignments, playing with friends ensures almost endless ways for the game's 50 scenarios to unfold. Board game fans who haven’t grabbed a copy of Talis…

Lionheart Tactics Review

Review Kongregate By Alex Beech, 7 months, 1 week ago
Lionheart Tactics Review

It is easy to like Lionheart Tactics. Unlike similar Japanese tactical RPGs, it hurls you straight into combat avoiding the long-winded intros and back-story that can limit the genre's appeal. The expectations set by Lionheart Tactics's anime portrait art make its opening pace jarring, as it shatters genre conventions. Taking control of a sleeping king, you are awakened by a sound, and thrown straight into battle. Each arena serves as a tutorial to various elements of the game, i…

Block Legend Review

Review Alvin Phu By Alex Beech, 7 months, 3 weeks ago
Block Legend Review

Like most puzzle games, Block Legend is all about trying build a high score. The difference here is that rather than simply trying to match coloured blocks to get points, you're fighting a string of fantasy-themed, randomly-spawning opponents in a charming 8-bit world. Different coloured blocks have different effects in battle. Depending on the properties of the tiles, matching two or more touching squares gives you the power to attack or defend. This means you have to keep a car…

Demonrock: War of Ages Review

Demonrock: War of Ages Review

On its surface Demonrock: War of Ages's isometric fantasy combat seems to ape classic dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Delve a little deeper, however, and you'll soon realise that this reverse tower defense game is far less broad in its scope. You are given a choice of four fighters. Two of these characters are unlocked, with the others available though IAP. Choosing which character to start with dramatically affects your experience – so making this initial selection esse…
