Welcome to our first App Store sale! Let’s keep it short so you can get to the games, shall we? This week, we’ve rounded up a handful of interesting games for you to play on your iPhone or iPad. A few of our favorite games this week include Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Rogue Hearts, Braveland Pirate and Tiny Tanks! This is a decent little sale, so make sure to jump at the opportunity if you see something you like.
Aralon: Sword and Shadow
An oldie, but a goodie. I remember this being one of the very first RPGs available on my iPod Touch in 2010. The graphics didn’t weather the storm of time, but the game has a lot of content.
Explore the kingdom of Aralon. Fight fierce monsters, navigate labyrinths, solve tricky quests and save the world. A huge 3D world, Aralon has lots of gear, race and class choices, non combat activities and treasure, of course.
I remember when this series was in its youth – just ‘Braveland’. Since then, it’s expanded to become a trilogy. This game is one of those entries – Braveland Pirates! Travel between islands in your ship as you fight creatures on the open sea. Put together a real pirate crew including a cabin boy, daredevil, canoneer, posessed and more as you build out your talent trees and seek out rare artifacts.
“Welcome to Braveland Pirate strategy game! A crew of pirates led by Captain Jim embarks on a search for the Eternal Treasure. Hordes of undead, chests full of gold, devious pirate captains, and breathtaking adventures await you in the Free Islands.”
I tried Rogue Hearts a few months ago and just haven’t had enough room to re-install it until now. The overworld map is beautiful and the character animations for the 2D work are pretty great as well. It’s no secret to anyone who knows me well enough that I love tactical games, so I really am enjoying this one.
- Explore dungeons, and discover an unwanted and dark reality.
- Explore regions with diverse themes and randomly generated dungeons with optimized, intuitive, and easy-to-use mobile device controls.
- Fight boss monsters with deadly attack patterns and earn loot.
- Engage in these ordeals by using characters with close combat and long distance skills.
- Not only battles, but various traps and puzzles also lie in wait.”
My favorite game on my Atari 2600 back in the mid 80s was Tanks. Since then, I’ve tried every game with tanks that shoot at each other in an overhead view. Nostalgia at its finest. So far, it’s difficult for these types of games to disappoint me. I can’t even explain why I like it so much. I guess everyone has their thing, right? Let’s be honest though…tanks blowing each other up is pretty awesome.
Tiny Tanks is an addictive and challenging arcade tank shooter. Fight your way through single player mode, upgrading your tank as you progress! Or take on a friend in a one vs. one showdown in multiplayer.
