How do you feel about giant robots punching the living robo-snot out of each other? You’re into it? Cool, then you’re probably going to love Transformers: Forged to Fight. It’s a one on one brawler featuring Autobots and Decepticons from various different time-lines.
But what if you want to be the best robo-battler the world has ever seen? Well you’re going to need some sort of guide to help you out. Possibly a guide split into a number of different parts. Like this one.
Today we’re going to look at the basics of the gameplay, to make sure you’re off to a good start. Come back tomorrow and we’ll look into some of the slightly more confusing free to play aspects of the game.
Punch, big punch, block
The interesting bits of the game involve two giant robots beating lumps of metal off each other. The controls are pretty simple, but it’s worth going over them.
You can tap the screen when you’re close to an enemy to throw out a punch. Multiple taps chain together combos. Tapping when you’re some distance away will fire your gun.
Swiping towards your foe when you’re next to them will perform a heavy attack. Pressing on the screen lets you use a special move to smash up blocks, which is important. Tapping on your own bot makes them block.
Swiping backwards dodges attacks and puts some distance between you and your foe. Swiping forwards when there’s a gap moves you towards the enemy.
Dynasty Blades is a fantastical reimagining of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. In this action packed MMORPG, players hack and slash their way through hordes of enemies in search of victory. There’s a slew of customizable heroes to choose from, rare treasures to collect, and some impressive weapon combos to master.
Now, Dynasty Blades is getting a sizeable new update that introduces new characters, in-game events, and more. Perhaps the biggest announcement is the addition of Zhang He, the newest hero. He’s one of the Five Generals of Wei, and is a ranged spellcaster that specializes in fire.
Accompanying the new hero is a new mount system that allows players to ride into battle with horses, tigers, jaguars, and other critters. They look intimidating, but they also give useful boosts to your character attributes in battle.
All of that excitement is capped by two new weekly events. The Treasure Plunder event establishes an in-game lottery — players pay for a number in the hopes of winning the big prize. The Drop & Exchange event boosts the odds of finding rare items after clearing a stage.
Developer EZFun is also making some welcome system fixes. Players can now buy…
Seemingly drawing inspiration Super Smash Bros, RPGs, and western horror, Appsolute Games has created Fright Fight, a new fighting game set to hit the App Store on February 12th.
Pitting two or four players against each other in either solo or team based matches, Fright Fight is all about fast-paced multiplayer mayhem.
You’ll have four iconic horror characters to choose between: a yeti, a werewolf, the Grim Reaper, and a vampire. Each of these creepy combatants will have their own combos and moves, giving them their own unique fighting style. RPG elements will also allow you to upgrade each brawler to better suit you own pugilistic preferences.
The trailer (above) shows Fright Fight‘s monster-based brawling in its full glory. We can see few frame rate that could potentially upset the flow of the action, but we’ll wait till get our claws on it before passing judgement.
Fright Fight is already available for free on the New Zealand App Store, and will burst on App Stores globally on February 12th. The free download will get you an arena to fight in, and a couple of characters with which to do battle. Additional content can be acquired via IAPs.
