CYOA Big Brother adventure ‘Beholder’ is here!

May 21, 2017

Will you do it?

Beholder is a new game from Creative Mobile Publishing that ultimately has the player ask that question. It’s a new world, and Big Brother is watching.

And you can help…

Every choice has ramifications, so choose wisely.

Per Google Play:

Welcome to a grim dystopian future.

A totalitarian State controls every aspect of private and public life. Laws are oppressive. Surveillance is total. Privacy is dead. You are the State-installed manager of an apartment building. Your daily routine involves making the building a sweet spot for tenants, who will come and go.

However, that is simply a facade that hides your real mission…

The State has appointed you to SPY ON YOUR TENANTS!. You must BUG their apartments while they’re away, SEARCH their belongings for whatever can threaten the authority of the State, and PROFILE them for your superiors. You must also REPORT anyone capable of violating the laws or plotting subversive activities against the State to the authorities.

The graphics are atypical, and the gameplay looks compelling; Beholder is a premium offering, coming in at $4.99.

Check out the trailer:

Dawn of Titans unveils new content

Dawn of Titans unveils new content

May 12, 2017

NaturalMotion’s exceptionally popular PvP thriller Dawn of Titans just received an update that brings a whole new battling mode in a time limited event.

Now, players can take part in Trials of Power. In this mode, a player selects his troops, and takes on waves and waves of computer generated enemies. The idea is to dispatch as many of the enemy as possible — for points, no less — and stay alive as long as possible.

You keep going (and the enemies keep coming) until all your troops are exhausted.

Those accumulated points? Well, they can be used to procure all manner of goodies, and there is a very special prize for the player who has the most points at the end of the event.

Officially, per Google Play:

WHAT’S NEW

Fellow Titans! The new SURVIVAL event, TRIALS OF POWER has arrived!
Head to the frontline for a new battle mode in Dawn of Titans!
– Take on hordes of enemies against the clock in special battles to build up points.
– Build up your points throughout the event for a chance to win gems, elixirs and a Titan!
– The champion of TRIALS OF POWER will be awarded with the ultimate Titan – URAKOR THE FIRE KING!

We definitely enjoyed Dawn of Titans when we took it for a spin, so much so that we felt compelled to help newbies out with some tips and tricks.

In any case, get you a piece. Dawn of Titans is available for free (with optional in-app purchases) on the Play Store.
