Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS is coming to the US App Store

Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has always been popular in Japan, but has struggled to make the transition to western markets. Now, having been out in its home territory for some time, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS is making its way to to other markets. Monster Hunter is an apt title for a series that has you hunt, trap, and kill monsters for the valuable materials they offer. These can then be crafted to form more powerful equipment in order to hunt larger creatures. The satisfying feedback loop this provides is further enhanced by the multiplayer aspect, in which hunting larger game requires you to work as a team - all fulfilling different roles in the hunt. The series' pop…

Godzilla - Smash3 Review

Godzilla - Smash3 Review

We wonder what went through Rogue Play’s collective heads when they got the Godzilla licence. Given the leash of the world's most iconic building-mashing monster, we can’t work out at what point they felt that a match three puzzler would be the best fit. But while Godzilla - Smash3 may not offer the most apt use the king of lizards, it does offer some monstrous elements. Controlling Godzilla, you must battle the military, smash buildings, and defeat other monsters. While y…

Dragon Coins Review

Review SEGA By Alex Beech, 2 months ago
Dragon Coins Review

Upon hearing that Dragon Coins was free-to-play game with a Pokemon-style focus on monster collection, we were tempted to run screaming from our phones with our hands clasped tightly around our wallets. After digging a little deeper, however, we discovered a tactical RPG with coin-dozer combat that offers more than enough of its touch-based fun for free. Dragon Coins combat will be instantly familiar if you have ever visited a seaside arcade. A field of coins meets you as you sta…

Sega’s Dragon Coins mixes monster training with penny shove combat

Sega’s Dragon Coins mixes monster training with penny shove combat

Sega’s new free-to-play game Dragon Coins takes the monster training mechanics from Pokemon, and adds combat based on coin-dozer arcade machines. Its an odd combination, but play a little and it starts to make sense. You take a team of five monsters into battle, each of whom sits under one of the five lanes down which coins can be nudged. Dropping coins in the top of the coin dozer pushes the existing penny pile forward, causing some to fall into the monster channels, and the monster to attack. Much like the arcade machines Dragon Coins mimics, this leads to an addictive mix of tactics and luck during battles. Collecting different coloured coins has different effects. For example,…


Monsters, Inc. Run Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Monsters, Inc. Run Review

It was bound to happen - the freight train of Disney Interactive's mash-up of successful iOS franchises with their own properties has run in to a bit of a snag. Where previous titles managed to blend its inspirations up and come out with something new, 'Monsters, Inc. Run' opts to simply balance the freemium auto-runner to create something more akin to what the first title should have been. As such the best moments of this title match those of Mega Run by Get Set Games without much in…
