Marvel Future Fight Hits the App Store on April 30

Marvel Future Fight by Netmarble is a Marvel-themed action RPG that’s launching juuuust ahead of Avengers: Age of Ultron (April 30 for the former, May 1 for the latter). The game has seen a lot of traffic during its Australian soft-launch, so the final product should be a biggie.

Does Not Commute Gets New Trailer, Release Date

RPG Soul of Deva is On Sale for $0.99

Down from $3.99, this is a Kemco role-playing game that doesn’t seem much like your average cookie-cut Kemco RPG. From Shaun Musgrave’s Touch Arcade review:

I’m just going to say that Soul Of Deva demonstrates a surprising amount of effort and change for a publisher that has been nearly synonymous with the opposite. If you’re in these things for the stories, you won’t be all that impressed. If you’re just looking for a good time with a JRPG that mixes things up a little without venturing too far off the beaten path, you might want to give this one a try, especially at an introductory or sale price.

Lonnie Plays Halo: Spartan Strike

If you’re thinking of picking up Halo: Spartan Strike to bring some futuristic military action to your iOS device, you might want to take a look at it in action before you do so. Here, Lonnie takes the game for a spin and dubs it “pretty Halo-y.” Good enough for me.

Frontline Commando: WW2 Review – A Veteran Shooter

Shooter fans won’t want to miss out on Frontline Commando: WW2, a game that has you fighting your way through Europe, killing Nazi scumbags every step of the way. It doesn’t reinvent the genre, but it offers plenty of action and a nice bit of variety when it comes to shooting baddies. From the Gamezebo review:

Graphical quibbles aside, Frontline Commando: WW2 is a solid third-person shooter that fans of the genre will not want to skip out on. Much to my surprise (and delight), it looks like you can make an over-the-shoulder shooter work on mobile.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Gets Watch Support

Admit it: You’ve always wanted to interact with a soccer game on your wrist. Apple Watch soccer support is now a reality, thanks to the latest update to FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. According to Touch Arcade:

Watch-specific features include tracking the transfer statuses of your five most coveted players, including instant notifications. In other words: in less than a week, you’ll be able to strap a small computer to your wrist and use it to buy and sell virtual athletes like chattel. The future is here, and the future is weird if you think about it too long.

Mattel Making Magic 8 Ball App for Apple Watch

Will the Apple Watch be a huge success when it launches in April 24? You can ask Mattel’s Magic 8 Ball app for your own watch when it launches alongside Apple’s timepiece. Like the toy of old, you ask the Magic 8 Ball app a question, then shake your wrist for the answer. Fun stuff, but best not depend on the app for major decisions about your mortgage or relationships.

Space Bounties Inc Review: Bountiful

If you’re a space-based bounty hunter, it’s usually a good thing to go into the fray with a plan. Space Bounties Inc is all about planning your strategy as you close in on your target and clap the irons on them. 148Apps reviewer Campbell Bird enjoyed the game and awarded it four stars out of five.

Space Bounties Inc. is an interesting little game that unfolds more of its complexity as players earn more money. It has a great sense of challenge and a compelling meta-game that makes it feel somewhat more than the sum of its parts. Because of its sheer number of options and limited resources, Space Bounties Inc.is a game that many players could sink a lot of time into.

Final Fantasy Characters Coming to Puzzle & Dragons in Japan

Squall, Rinoa, Tidus, Chaos, and other Final Fantasy heroes and villains are coming to GungHo’s hugely popular puzzle game Puzzle & Dragons. It’s extremely common for the title to cross-over with other popular game series, and now it’s Final Fantasy’s turn. No word on whether this collaboration is coming to the English version of the game, but no doubt it’d be received well.

Baldur’s Gate II iPad Review

Like I alluded to in my preview of the game, playing Baldur’s Gate II was one of the defining moments for me as a gamer. It holds a special place in my gaming heart, and you’d be hard pressed to find an “all-time best of” list that doesn’t include this amazing game. Unfortunately, times they have a changed. RPGs have evolved and the way we play games has changed, so a straight port of this computer classic just doesn’t work for the iPad. (more…)

Lonnie Plays WWE 2K

Wrestling is one of America’s favorite pastimes, so it only makes sense that a (very good) iOS version of the sport has hit the App Store. Thankfully for all of us, Lonnie has a Let’s Play video of it. It’s called WWE 2K, and it’s quite fun by all accounts. Check it out above.

Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night Review – Brutally Wonderful

If you like your card games to beat the crap out of you, then we have the game for you. This installment of Chainsaw Warrior pits you against apocalyptical beasties and asks you to clear them out. 148Apps enjoyed the game, saying in their 4.5 out of 5 star review:

The ever-present Darkness is at it again, and it’s up to the gruff but loveably tenacious Chainsaw Warrior to stop the apocalypse for a second time. What’s different in Lords of the Night is that… well, actually, there’s a lot that’s different. You still get to agonize over there being too many cards in each deck and running out of time, though.

Halo: Spartan Strike Review – Near Perfection

Pocket Gamer has reviewed Halo: Spartan Strike on iOS and found it to be a high caliber game worthy of a spot on just about anyone’s device. According to their 9 out of 10 review:

Halo: Spartan Strike is a slick twin-stick shooter that manages to feel like Halo in the palm of your hand. If you like your action deep-spacey, then it’s well worth a look.
