Liv Games' Legendary Wars earned a close to perfect score from iFanzine's discerning lead reviewer, Sean Koch, when he gave this "Real-Time Strategy/Castle Defense/RPG combo" an in-depth appraisal recently. And now thanks to the latest update - which, amongst other improvements, adds a host of control tweaks and a brand spanking new casual mode - this already awesome game just got a whole lot better!
BansheeSoft just swooped in with a preview build of Mission Europa, the studio's breakout First Person Shooter/Action RPG mashup. Combining the depth of an RPG with quick-on-your-feet strafing action to great effect, this is one well constructed indie title fans of either genre should follow closely as it nears release.
Yes, if you're a longtime veteran of 3D Action RPGs you'll slip up and call Ayden's horse "Epona" a few times, but once you start taking in the excellently crafted vistas of Hy-err, Lasgalen, you won't find much to complain about. Sadly the free trial is a poor representation of the overall product; it shows off the battle system and story well enough, but the major draw here are the intricate dungeon puzzles that lie behind the full purchase price.
Gameloft have just been in touch to let us know their latest title, action RPG Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden, will be galloping into the US App Store tomorrow, February the 3rd. It's being hyped as iOS' answer to Zelda and billed as "an amazing adventure set in a majestic world that will fascinate you for countless hours." Sounds good!
Bug Heroes was already excellent when it took the App Store by storm last week, but Foursaken Media's first "bug" fix update has brought it to the level of pure gaming bliss. It doesn't really matter which genre you're most fond of; Bug Heroes has something for everyone, whether it be a creative premise, furious onscreen action, high score competition, or deep player character customization.
Foursaken Media has given iFanzine a sneak peek at its upcoming release, Bug Heroes. The idea of mashing up the Dual-stick Shooter, Action RPG, and Castle Defense genres might sound outlandish at first, but we're absolutely loving the results!
While Korean devs have shown they really know how to put the "Action" in Action RPG, EXE Create and FDG Entertainment bring us back to an era when the genre wasn't so much about combat, and clever dungeon puzzles instead reigned supreme. Its gameplay style may be a bit of an adjustment for players used to the typical genre offerings on this platform, but Across Age DX is so well executed as to make it a must-play title for Action RPG fans equipped with appropriate iDevices.
What is it called when stellar graphics meet beautiful hardware and are infused with sleek mechanics and just a pinch of the surreal? An epic game would be the general answer. My answer - Infinity Blade. Announced at the Apple keynote, "Project Sword", captured our imaginations, not just with game-play or graphics, although it did just that, but especially with what was under the hood...
Bummed out that Infinity Blade doesn't work on your Second Gen iDevice? Never fear, Gamevil has proven that there's still some real gems you can snatch up! Most famous for its overhead Action RPG series Zenonia, Gamevil has returned with a title that combines heavy platforming and traditional RPG mechanics to wonderful effect.
