Lonnie Plays Minions Paradise

To gear up for the film, EA is coming out with an iOS game called Minions Paradise, which puts the lovable yellow critters in a Clash of Clans type game. Weird. The game is out as a soft launch in New Zealand and is expected to hit the U.S. soon. In the meantime Lonnie has taken the game for a spin, so check out the video above.

The Full Version of Hakuoki Costs $28

Here’s a price point you don’t see every day on the App Store: $28. That’s the price of the full visual novel Hakuoki, an English localization of a PSP game. Alternately, you can download the game’s first chapter for free and buy each of the 14 additional chapters one at a time for $3 a pop. From VentureBeat:

Meanwhile, these visual novels, which feature anime-style art and branching storylines, are hugely popular in Japan. As an example, Hakuoki is a major series in Japan, with releases on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS and 3DS. It was even adapted for television animation. Generally, titles from the choose your own adventure-style genre rarely make it to Western shores, but when they do, they usually land on handheld game systems such as the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. A mobile release is a rare treat for Western fans.

Forsaken World Coming to Mobile Soon

Free-to-play PC MMORPG Forsaken World is getting a mobile version sometime in the future. Aside from a teaser trailer, there’s little information on this adaptation. The game’s site does promise great-looking 3D graphics, PvP, and exotic mounts (every MMORPG needs them), so we can count on that much. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

Heroes and Castles 2 Coming May 14

Heroes and Castles 2 is an interesting mash-up between 3D action and tower defense. The first game was quite decent, and the follow-up looks pretty good, too. You’ll be able to judge for yourself when the game comes to iOS on May 14.

Sporting a single-player campaign, a co-op multiplayer mode, and PVP battles, Heroes and Castles 2 offers players many ways to take their armies into battle whether that be on their own, with a friend, or against one.

Out Now: Hakuoki

Japanese visual novels are a bit of a niche genre, but they command a dedicated fanbase. There’s definitely enough of an audience to justify the English localization of Hakuoki, a mobile port of the PSP game of the same name. The prologue is free to play and additional chapters cost $2.99 USD each, so give it a try to see if it’s your cup of tea (or your tea ceremony, in this case).

Out Now: Century City

Remember when clicker games were about baking cookies and accumulating bitcoins? Now you can literally build cities with a few (thousand) clicks, as Century City demonstrates. It’s out now, it’s free to download, and as Pocket Gamer points out, it’s fiendishly addictive.

There’s a lot to do, a lot to unlock, and requires a lot of your time. So, due to its engaging hook, you might want to lay off it if you have something important to do.

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.
