10 App Store Games To Watch [April 28 - May 4]

monday-roundup-05052014-intro

Bet you can’t guess what I’m going to talk about this week!  Drat, you probably said games, didn’t you?  The long list of games that I didn’t get to talk more in-depth about this week included Dwarven Den – The Mining Puzzle Game from Backflip Studios.  This cute underground puzzler tasks you with rescuing your friends, finding a bunch of loot and avoiding dangerous monsters, all in a limited number of moves.  Lethal Lance from BulkyPix is an homage to the good old days of shareware PC games.  You know, back when Duke Nukem was fun without being in 3D.  If you’re looking for something just plain weird you will want to check out Sheepidoo.  I’m not really even sure how to explain this one, but if you’re willing to throw caution to the wind it should put a smile on your face.

Dungeoned: Redshift’s cute Quest

It wasn’t THAT long ago that Star Wars: Yoda Stories graced workplace desktops the world over. Redshift, who brought us one of the iDevice’s most potent RPG series, The Quest, have nailed another key gaming point: the fun, apropos-of-desktop-adventuring-games-like-Yoda-Stories RPG adventure! Dungeoned is yours for 99 cents; for less than a dolla, you can bagi it; shy of a buck, not even twenty nickels! Be ready to run from baddies, strike with magic and your fists, and escape through the one true door! Dear me, I sound like a marketing telephone box.

Dungeoned Redshift, Dungeoned – $0.99

Press, piccies and viddy after the gappy:

Not Your Kid’s RPG: The Quest – 3D Fantasy RPG in Review

Gentle reader, let me impress upon you illumination I have discovered: Redshift’s The Quest is the RPG we have been waiting for in the App Store. In fact, in my long searches I have found it to be the best RPG I have yet played on any portable gaming system. My friends, it should be considered the benchmark for RPG makers to follow: classic and deep; methodical and detailed; it is a true role-playing experience among portable RPG’s that are nothing but shallow hack and slash weapon-building adventures.

A Real RPG arrives at the App Store – The Quest

thequest4thequest2

The Quest – 3D Fantasy RPG is a simply titled game from Redshift and published by Chillingo that looks to follow the classic formula for a PC RPG, not a console cartoon stat monger adventure like the myriad of Square/Enix knock offs.  The Quest has been on Windows Mobile and Palm for some time but has finally made it to a superior platform and for only 5.99$.  If you are fans of the Elder Scrolls, Ultima Underworld and of course Sierra’s genre defining, Betrayal at Krondor, this new RPG should appeal to you.

Notably however, its graphics are far richer than any of the classics listed above and you can play from the comfort of your iPhone or iPod touch.  I know I have waited for a release of a real RPG since the App Store’s inception.  Count me as one who is waiting for this game to be bloody amazing.

More Pickies and Chillingo’s video after the jump!
