Kingdom: New Lands

Kingdom: New Lands out on mobile, finally

Of all games I’ve played over the past year or more, I’ve played Kingdom and the New Lands expansion the most. I can best describe Kingdom as a one dimensional simulation game. The only way to move on the island is left/right while riding your mount. Along the way recruit troops, build an encampment and walls, defend your encampment, and try to get off the island. Remarkably simple, yet I have over 200 hours into the game, it’s very sticky and repeatable.

I’ve been beta testing the mobile version for a few months now and have come to love it more than the desktop version. I’m not 100% sure I agree with the way progress is saved on mobile (only at the dawn of a new day), but it’s has worked out well to save me a couple times. Well worth the download to see what a sim game can really be on mobile.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8: Airborne Review

It’s another year, another summer, and just like a summer blockbuster movie, it’s time for another entry in Gameloft’s venerable racing series, Asphalt. It’s easy to get cynical as this would be the eighth game in the series, and after part seven I was starting to think that this franchise was getting a little too long in the tooth. Thankfully Gameloft seems to have realized that as well and has added enough new and fun elements to justify keeping the series going.

If you’re a arcade racing fan then there’s absolutely no reason for you to not be playing this. The in-app purchases are only annoying if you’re impatient, and every aspect in the game (even the redundant ones) are a step up. This is one you’ll be playing again and again for at least another year.

BADLAND

Badland Review

If feel-good movies have taught us anything, it’s that even the seemingly most insignificant individual can be a hero. In that vein, the shadowy, wide-eyed protagonist of Badland for iOS is a hero twice over. Not only does the little guy undertake a quest to save his world, but he also brings new life to side scrollers and endless runners, two genres oh-so in need of some fresh air.

Badland puts you in the fur of a nameless bat-hedgehog hybrid who wakes up one day to find his forest home in peril. Pipes, sinister constructs, and deadly traps have somehow intermingled with the vegetation. You need to get to the bottom of the weird invasion.

Badland mixes side-scrolling action with some endless runner elements. Levels automatically scroll from left to right, and there are plenty of obstacles to impede your progress. If you get pushed off the screen, you presumably go squish.
