The Chronicles of Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone Released + Promo Code Giveaway!

Update: Our review of Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone can be found here

Over the weekend, The Chronicles of Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone bust into the App Store to confirm its spot among the best RPGs in the App Store. TouchMyApps’ review is forthcoming and we have one of our best men on the job, but suffice it to say that among the oft’ short-lived, simple anime RPGs, Luone sheds some serious skin. One of its best features is incredibly long play time which busts through dozens of hours of story play and many more on side quests. But when you’ve sussed the entire thing, Online Match-up mode is sure to pique your interest. Thank you Com2uS for continuing to innovate!

review-ravensword-main

When the first Ravensword: The Fallen King screenshots and trailers appeared on the net, I thought: “This is it! This is the Holy Grail!” And as the time came closer and closer to the release date, with all of the publicity around the game, my interest really peaked. Just a little over 2 weeks ago I finally got my hands on the press build of this genre-bending game.

Quoth the Raven: “Ravensword … Ever Again?”

News-games-RavenfalloutChillingo’s new action/RPG has fallen out of favour with Apple because of its Unity 3D engine roots which can call sneaky information-stealing API’s. Fortunately, Apple had the forethought to disprove of any app which uses those API’s and though Ravensword steals nothing more than a user’s time, it has caught Apple’s ban hammer. According to Chillingo, “the same APIs were used by iMobsters developer Storm8 to solicit contact information from players”. Apple are taking a strangely serious (and oddly moral) high ground with regard to a user’s personal information and will be re-assessing this much-anticipated game in the coming weeks.

PR-Game-Tecmo-8bittreasure-01

The return of true light-hearted RPGs has been spiced by many hopefuls, but on 5 November, Tecmo’s 2006 Japanese mobile phone hit, The Isle of 8-Bit Treasures, slipped into the App Store for what truly is light-hearted adventure. No need to don your thinking caps, or level-busters – from graphics to music, The Isle of 8-Bit Treasures is good ol’ fashioned monster-killing fun. And thankfully, your hero is easy to control. 8-Bit Treasure has been a hit over the years on handsets all over Japan, but Tecmo have pulled off a decent control scheme, even for sausage-fingered folk!
