Fresh off the immensely successful cell phone titles Heroes Lore: Wind of Soltia and Heroes Lore: Knights of the Frozen Sea, EA Mobile has expanded the series' reach into the iOS market with its third installment. Those holding out hope that Heroes Lore III would represent a giant leap forward for the iOS Action RPG library will be disappointed, but most genre fans should still find plenty to love.
You know how everyone's been clamoring for a sci-fi RPG lately? Fish Labs has an answer for that. While there's nary a hit point to be found in Galaxy on Fire 2, its superbly delivered story and characterization, incredible depth, and overall genre-defying appeal should fit the bill for anyone interested in seeing what happens when roleplaying and adventure are mixed with a little 3D space action.
One word: WOW! Via GameTrailers.com, Epic Games and Chair Entertainment have unveiled a gorgeous new trailer for their eagerly anticipated action-RPG cum sword fighting game, Infinity Blade. Featuring graphics so sharp you could have someone's eye out with them, this title looks set to be something of a game-changer when it arrives on iDevices this Holiday season!
"Retroviews" are becoming all the rage on reviews sites nowadays, and while the iPhone is still a young platform, it feels like there's already a decade's worth of titles for gamers to choose from. Therefore we thought it would be neat to take a look back at Zenonia, the 2009 Gamevil release that put the Action RPG indelibly on the iOS map. Does it still have what it takes to compete in today's RPG-crowded Appstore?
This sidescrolling Action RPG brought to us by Spearhead Entertainment has a nice arcade style beat-em-up feel and its lack of fetch quests is a welcome rarity in the iPhone RPG library. Unfortunately consumers looking for deep gameplay mechanics and varied content should be forewarned that it suffers greatly from its heritage as a ported Java-enabled cell phone game.
Seed 2's interface could stand some improvement and it's chock full of the ubiquitous fetch quests that are quickly wearing out their welcome in iPhone RPGs, but if you can get past its flaws you'll find a very deep and fulfilling action RPG thanks to an engaging character development system and excellent overall polish.
