Clicker Heroes: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies

Clicker Heroes is a ridiculous game that no one should play, because the moment you begin, you’re sucked into an endless and hyper-addictive wormhole of colorful madness. OK, I can admit that I’m a Clicker Hero zombie, and perhaps you are, too. If so, these smart tips will help you maximize your clicks.

.Decluster Zero: Bullet Nocturne Review: “One of the best bullet hell shooters”

Bullet hell shooters are tough to get right, in that you want them to be challenging but not too challengin. This unusually punctuated one threads the needle nicely. From the 4.5 star review from 148Apps:

That’s the beauty behind .Decluster Zero: Bullet Nocturne. There’s so much going on when it comes to learning when to use your homing laser, when to activate charge mode, and so forth. A written tutorial makes things sound a little confusing but practice makes perfect here, with .Decluster Zero: Bullet Nocturne offering a varied selection of difficulty modes that really do make a difference. It’s a real delight.

Clicker Heroes Review: “Almost annoyingly addictive”

It sounds like nothing anyone would ever want to play, but once you start it’s incredibly tough to stop. I’m talking about Clicker Heroes, an idle tapping game 148Apps enjoyed quite a bit. From the 4 star review:

Essentially, Clicker Heroes is a game that plays itself and yet you’ll find yourself checking in so often. As you keep playing, new things unlock. You’ll find yourself able to join clan and participate in multiplayer battles, but it’ll take you a while to get that far. Clicker Heroes trickle feeds such content though so you’ll soon end up under its spell.

Dragon Quest V is On Sale for $9.99

For the first time since its iOS release, Dragon Quest 5 has gone on sale for $9.99, down from $14.99. It’s a game anyone interested in RPGs should play, but don’t take my word for it. From Touch Arcade:

Dragon Quest 5 is regarded by many series fans, including myself, to be the peak of the franchise. It tells a touching story of one person’s life, from childhood all the way through parenthood. It doesn’t just lean on its story, however. The game also introduced monster-catching mechanics, allowing you to fill out your party with the enemies you meet along the way. In most other regards, it’s a fairly typical Dragon Quest game, meaning it’s a whole lot of JRPG comfort food. If you want more information on the game, please check out my review. It’s one of my very favorite RPGs of all-time.

Pac-Man 256 Review: Not Your Daddy’s Pac-Man

Pac-Man 256 was made by Hipster Whale, the Crossy Road folks, but it’s not exactly the game most fans know and love. In fact, it’s a different game altogether, even though it looks similar. From 148Apps’s 3.5 star review:

You’ll spend much of your time with PAC-MAN 256 trying to beat your previous high score an your earlier dot combo, but besides score chasing, there are limited reasons to come back for more. You can’t unlock new characters or areas so the game stays mostly the same no matter what.

While being free, you don’t have to worry about an energy meter with credits only used if you want to activate a power-up, but longevity is going to be the issue for PAC-MAN 256. It’s great fun for a time, but you’ll soon start to wish there was more of an aim to what unfolds here.

Horizon Chase Review: What’s Old is New Again

Old-school racing doesn’t get much better than Horizon Chase. That comes from Touch Arcade, whose 5-star review blows the roof off the race car (or something to that effect). From the review:

The amount of content in this game is ridiculous. There’s nine or so tracks per country, and an exceptional amount of variety in the courses. The progression barriers are such that you’ll need to go back and do well on earlier tracks in order to advance further. Thankfully, there are rewards for doing well – finishing third in the bonus races earns you a fleet upgrade, and a new car for finishing first. Get a pro medal on each track in a country and you’ll get a new car, too. It could perhaps get a bit tedious over time, but it does keep getting more and more challenging as you play, and hey – the value for what you get is absurd. This could have been a more expensive game and still worth it. There’s no in-app purchases at all, either.

Galactic Keep Review: A Galactic Keeper

After years of anticipation, the board game-style RPG Galactic Keep has landed on the App Store. And it’s really good, says Gamezebo, awarding it a stellar 4.5 stars. From the review:

Galactic Keep’s unique visuals might not be for everyone, and its reliance on luck makes for some teeth-gritting moments. That’s just picking space-nits, though. RPG fans of any stripe should make alien-bashing a priority.

Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest Coming this Fall

Fans of collectible card games and/or match-3 RPGs will be excited to hear that a new game that mixes the two ideas together is heading to the App Store this fall. From Touch Arcade:

While the original Puzzle Quest and its sequel are bonafide classics, the more recent spinoffs Marvel Puzzle Quest [Free] and Adventure Time Puzzle Quest [Free] have somewhat alienated long-time fans of the series. Not that the recent games are bad, but they’re highly social, highly free to play games aimed at the casual market, whereas the original games were something that appealed more to the core gaming group. It seems like with the Magic IP on board there’s potential to make the ultimate, super deep fantasy RPG matching game crossover, but more than likely it’ll be just like the last couple of games with a Magic skin.

How to Unlock Pac-Man Characters in Crossy Road

Pac-Man characters have come to Crossy Road, but figuring out how to unlock them all takes a little doing. Never fear, because Gamezebo is here to show you the one true path. From the article:

Hipster Whale has been ridiculously generous to mobile players this month, adding six new characters to Crossy Road last week, releasing their new endless insta-hit Pac-Man 256, and now giving us another six characters less than one week later. The latest set of unlockables is entirely Pac-Man related and includes four secret characters that have proven to be some of the most mysterious in Crossy Road history. We’ve collected these characters—thanks to some amazing detective work from helpful Crossy Road fans—and wanted to share the ghostly wealth with anyone else having trouble tracking them down.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Review: “extremely faithful port”

Designing roller coasters is an underrated pastime, at least for fans of the RollerCoaster Tycoon series. 148Apps is a fan of the latest iOS port, more or less. From the 3.5 star review:

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is a near-identical port of the original from 2004, with the good and bad that comes along with being that faithful. On one hand it’s an on-the-go version of what’s probably the best game in theseries; on the other, the relative lack of updated controls or design in any form can make it feel clunky and slow. Fans looking to recapture the magic of the PC titles will likely be able to look past theseissues, but folks coming to the series for the first time or looking for a game with more modern sensibilities would probably be better off steering clear.

The map connects to Snake’s iDroid (the best of both worlds!)l and can show the in-game map on your phone or tablet. You’ll see more of the map on your device than you can in game.

The app also lets you to listen to all records and music that you obtain as you progress through the game. The app will work with PS3, PS4, and Xbox One, meaning Xbox 360 and PC fans are a bit boned.

A Level Editor is Coming to Badland

If you’ve ever found yourself playing Badland and thought to yourself, “I could totally make these levels,” then you’re in luck, because an editor is coming to the game. And the beta starts today. From Touch Arcade:

Frogmind says the level editor is actually a polished-up version of the same one they used to create official levels for the game, so essentially everything in Badland was built using the same editor, which means the possibilities should be pretty endless. In order to publish a created level you’ll need to be able to beat it, and you’ll be able to browse through, play and rate other peoples’ creations as well. User-created levels can be sorted by rating, difficulty, and length and each week Frogmind will pick one special level to be added to a new “Eternal Day” that will be available on the main menu for all to access.
