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 - Endless Arcade Maze

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 - World Tour

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

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.
