Rapture: World Conquest is Now Free-to-Play

Rapture: World Conquest used to cost $2.99. Now the developer has made it free-to-play. Download it here.

Rapture – World Conquest is a fast paced real-time strategy game that puts you in the celestial shoes of a jealous god. Guide your followers through the ages and vanquish the unbelievers in the surrounding kingdoms. Send your armies to take over regions and expand your realm.

As your followers rise in numbers their adulation will provide mana allowing you to unleash devastating miracles – lightning storms, hurricanes, floods and other death from above. Conquer the globe and as the supreme deity you will lift your people up to heaven and leave your remaining enemies to the apocalypse.

Should you risk all on military engagements? On science and technical achievements? Or improve farming to boost productivity? Or perhaps your followers should spend their time praising you, giving you the power to unleash more miracles.

Inspired by classic god games such as Civilization and Populous, reinvented for short match times on mobile. There are dozens of missions, achievements and unlockable content.

You are a jealous god, wipe out the minions of your rivals, conquer the world and rapture your people.

Looks like Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 is Coming to Mobile

It seems as if Aspyr is bringing Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords to mobile platforms. That’s if this ESRB rating is anything to go by. From Touch Arcade:

KOTOR 2 wasn’t made by BioWare as the original was, instead it was made by Obsidian Entertainment. There’s not as high a reputation due to the game being rushed into completion, which hurt its reviews as there was a lot of cut content and plenty of bugs, but the latter could certainly be fixed with cleaned-up ports to new platforms. And at worst, more KOTOR is not a bad thing. Plus, even at a $9.99 price point like the first KOTOR was, the cost-per-hour with this game is absurd. The original holds up really well, so get excited for this.

Sega promises that current customers will be able to re-download purchased games. And of the newly delisted apps, it says “while we have nothing to announce at this time, given the right situation, these titles may return in an updated form”.

Konami Shifting Focus Away From Consoles in Favor of Mobile Platforms

Konami’s been popping up in game news a lot thanks to its recent fallout with game developer Hideo Kojima. We don’t know the reason for the tension, but this could be a major factor: Konami is moving away from console game development in favor of mobile.

“Mobile is where the future of gaming lies. With multiplatform games, there’s really no point in dividing the market into categories anymore. Mobiles will take on the new role of linking the general public to the gaming world.”
