Clash Royale Review, Strategy and Tips to build the best Deck for iOS and Android



Clash Royale Review, Strategy and Tips to build the best Deck for iOS and Android

Who doesn't know Clash of Clans. The game that was released for iOS back in 2012 and Android in 2013 has achieved a lot of things; and by a lot, I mean really a lot. Even at the early time when the game has just released, Clash of Clans has shown a really good potential, becoming AppStore top 5 download between December 2012 and May 2013. It finally rape it sow during last year, when Clash of Clans became the top grossing app on both iOS and Android. Clash of Clans even generates a huge 1.5 million dollars per day!

The gameplay that's offered by Clash of Clans was a fresh idea at that time. You get to build a defense, gold producing machine, then build troops with the gold you've produced. Afterwards, you get to attack other players to get more gold, and repeat that again. I know that this isn't a fresh idea anymore since so many games have copied this mechanic and use it as their core. However, that's not the reason why this game was able to generate 1.5 million dollars in 2015. It is in my opinion the community behind the game. The ability to create clans, defending and attacking other clans together, supported with reliable network server, making this game is the next 'World of Warcraft'.

Now after a huge success in 2015, the developer of Clash of Clans, Supercell, wants to repeat that success again with the same community and similar policy, but with a fresh gameplay. To do that, Supercell creates another real-time multiplayer game starring all the familiar characters from Clash of Clans, called Clash Royale.

Football and simulation are two things that I couldn't resist from a mobile game. I don't know how many times I fail myself from resisting temptation to play games that are coming from this genre. However, I always try to be as neutral as possible when doing review for a game from this genre. It's hard though, if I'm being honest.

This next game, is coming from the developer that have renowned for creating multiple amazing football simulation games.First Touch Games, the men behind amazing soccer games like First Touch Soccer and Score!, released their latest installment from Dream League series, and it's called Dream League Soccer 2016.

Marvel Avengers Academy Tips and Tricks - How to get Heroes Faster in iOS and Android



Marvel Avengers Academy Tips and Tricks - How to get Heroes Faster in iOS and Android

There are a lot of things happening in the comic book world, especially when we're talking about The Avengers and Marvel Universe. Some of you may have known Earth's Mightiest Heroes from the movie, but most comic book lovers will already know that The Avengers version in the movie is nowhere near the complexity that the comic book has.

This so-called multiverse, is the reason behind all this complexity. Inside each universe, lies individual story that separates one from another. For example, the blockbuster movie that we know, is called Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is different from the comic book universe, so that's why you won't find any Wolverine in the Avengers movie.

Let's add another 'complexity' to the multiverse with the latest franchise of Marvel's game. Developed by TinyCo, the men and women behind Family Guy: The Quest for StuffMarvel Avengers Academy brings all the super heroes back in their college life, under one building.

Punch Club: A Fighter's Tamagotchi for iOS and Android (with Guides, Tips and Tricks)

Simulation games have always been one of my favorite genre. A simulation game is a game where you will be simulating various activities from real life. At the early development of simulation game, the true purpose of it isn't actually for fun purpose but rather for real-life purpose such as training, analysis, or prediction. Most simulation games trying to tell the player about how they think a real situation from their game would happen.

But as time goes by, so does the evolution of simulation games. Now they're not just focusing on detail and real-life simulation, but also broaden its range to a more friendly, simple, and fun games. The history of simulation game is a bit blur. While many credits the notorious Sim City as the first simulation game, Coleco Vision claim themselves as the game that inspires Sim City.

Since the success of Sim City, simulation games is like the genre that would never dies. This genre always has its own fan base that would never fade away. Just like the time when I was a child, the time when Tamagotchi was first released in public, 20 years ago. It's like everybody feel responsible to raise a digital pet that's just as large as any keychain, and can be brought anywhere they go.

That's exactly the same concept that I thought when simulation games being brought into iPhone. It's like you have your own tamagotchi again, but this time, it's not just digital pet, you can even bring a street fighter everywhere you go and have him develops into a tough fighter.

Combining strategic decision and simulation together is what Lazy Bear Games wanted to present to the players. With these combinations in mind, along with the passion to bring back nostalgic feeling into modern game, Punch Club is born.

Runestone Keeper - A Permadeath Roguelike Game Review and Beginner Guide for iOS and Android



Runestone Keeper - A Permadeath Roguelike Game Review and Beginner Guide for iOS and Android

Why does playing game that has no limit is so addictive to some people? For me personally, it's because the endless challenge offered by the game. It seems that when I'm playing an endless game, I'm challenging something that literally impossible, but always interesting to be played with.

Endless games however, is a category that's a bit sensitive to most hardcore gamers. I don't know about you obviously but all hardcore gamers that I've known, would prefer games that has clear ending, not just aiming high score and just doing something repetitively.

Roguelike game, despite in many way, can also be categorized into this endless game category, but with different weight in terms of its gameplay. The genre that's also a sub-genre of Role-Playing Games, isn't just you simply running aimlessly bragging about score, it's about how you plan your next game session. It's entirely in a different weight.

Speaking of the history of Roguelike game, most hardcore gamers would be familiar with the most famous tabletop role-playing game called Dungeon and Dragons. This fantasy game had more than 3 million players around the world just back in 1981, and by 2004, this game has reached more than 20 million people. In fact, games like D&D have influenced most Roguelike games that based on a high fantasy narrative.

There are some characteristics that separate roguelike games from other genre. Permanent Death of the player character, that is. Permadeath (the cool vocab for permanent death), according to Wikipedia, is a situation in which player characters that die are permanently dead and removed from the game and may no longer be used to play. It means when you're dead, you will have to restart the game all over again from scratch.

Back in 2013, a roguelike game entered iOS games platform, and successfully made this genre the new darling in the midst of various genre. Since then, a lot of high quality roguelike game have entered the platform, from friendly roguelike game like Sproggiwood to a more play-and-go game like 100 Rogues. All of them have different play styles and taste, but all with the same characteristics, the permadeath.

In 2015, another fantastic roguelike game with permadeath game mechanic is entering the mobile platform again. Originally designed for iOS platform, Blackfire Games from China, decided to release it first on PC to test the public interest for this game since roguelike genre wasn't that popular in China. The PC's release however, turns out great as they have successfully snatched 2014 UNITY AWARDS for Best Gameplay in China. Moreover, now there are more Chinese players that signed up for Steam because of this game.

This is Blackfire Games own roguelike version that has shaken China's gaming industry, Runestone Keeper.

The game that I'm about to talk, is without a doubt, one of the most successful football management simulation game in the whole world, and it all started way back in 1992. In 1992, this football simulation game started with the name, Championship Manager created by two brothers under the name of Sports Interactive and published by Eidos.

In 2003, Sports Interactive split with Eidos, retained the game's match engine, database, and changed its name into Football Manager. Slowly but sure, Football Manager sets their feet deeply and claim back their right to become the most popular football management simulation game.

Football Manager set their feet on handheld device back on 2006, when they released Football Manager Handheld (FMH) on PSP. Of course they designed the game separately due to the different playing experience in handheld console. 

However as if Sports Interactive wants to expand more with this business line, FMH was entering mobile products, started with iOS back in 2010, continued with Android in April 2012.

Finally in 2016, FMH was being renamed and released to both iOS and Android devices with the name Football Manager Mobile 2016.

Moto RKD Dash: A Classic 80s Motorcycle Racing for the Next Generation in iOS and Android



Moto RKD Dash: A Classic 80s Motorcycle Racing for the Next Generation in iOS and Android

I couldn't ride a bike, let alone racing in a motorbike. However, I've always enjoyed myself playing with motorcycle racing arcade machine during my childhood. While imagining myself as a real rider, I often made the voice like "VROOM VROOM" (who's with me?). Nevertheless, it was a good time and SEGA ManX TT was one of my favorite motorcycle arcade machine game at that time.

However, long before I was even born into this world, long before the developers were even used digital screen for the UI, there were racing arcade games that only use magnets, papers, relying on mechanics and natures. SEGA was one of the publishers of this kind of game and they called it Moto Champ. An arcade game that was first published back in 1973.

 

Fast forwarding a little bit. In 1983, the closest thing that perhaps was the ancestor of Gran Turismo or Forza is launched, it's called Tomy Racing Turbo Dashboard. Tomy's driving simulator set the standard for racing games on the home gaming circuit by creating a machine equipped with four-speed gearshifts, speedometer, key ignition, and digital viewing screen.

 

Now let's get out from our time machine and facing the real life. Kalin Krastev, the man behind a company called RKD Zone, trying to bring back the future into our past. Combining 3D technology with classic electromechanical toys like Moto Champ and Tomy Racing Turbo, was the idea behind Moto RKD Dash.
