HeroCraft Announces Upcoming Game World of Dungeons, Releases Teaser Trailer

HeroCraft Announces Upcoming Game World of Dungeons, Releases Teaser Trailer

Mar 13, 2015

HeroCraft is eager to let know it has a new game in development called World of Dungeons.

World of Dungeons is a role-playing game that features turn-based squad battles in a dark, mature fantasy setting.

The core-gameplay includes three single-player modes. In the first mode, players will send their heroes into dungeons in search of treasure and adventure. In the second mode, they will fight fierce bosses and get rare weapons and artifacts for defeating the enemy. The third mode, the Arena, is the place to test heroes in battle against tough enemy teams.

World of Dungeons has various hero classes: along with the familiar Warrior and Paladin, players will encounter new ones, such as Colossus and Soldier. Hero class determines the stat allocation when the hero levels up. There are hundreds of class-specific items that comprise different heroes’ sets. Completing a set gives heroes a big advantage in battle. Besides, there are hundreds of non-set items and weapons that all heroes can use.

Heroes of all classes can learn any of the hundreds of skills. Players can master slayer skills when playing a mage, or create even more complex combinations. The difference between classes is that they start off in their own section of the global web of skills

The new game is due out in the Summer; we also have a a teaser trailer below:

The Tiny Bang Story Review

The Tiny Bang Story Review

Aug 1, 2013

It seems quite counter-intuitive that mobile puzzle games are as popular as they are. Puzzle games require three things: calm, stable environment, lots of free time on one’s hands, and a big screen to see every pixel. None of these are available to most of the mobile gamers, and yet, high-quality pixel-hunting puzzles and adventures are released every week, and it’s always a pleasure to pick a new one up. Tiny Bang Story is one of the puzzle games, available on the mobiles, and it also features a great gameplay quality, along with beautiful music and backgrounds.

Story in Tiny Bang Story is mostly visual, and is secondary to the gameplay. It’s still a bit blurry for me to describe, but the game takes place on a strange, steampunky land that was shattered by an asteroid impact, and now needs to be rebuilt by completing various puzzles and finding specific objects. Tiny Bang Story is a mix between a puzzle and a hidden objects game. Although the core gameplay consists of finding various objects that are required to advance into the world, and into the story, there are also plenty of puzzles and challenges that need to be completed. Since the game has virtually no written explanations or directions, which is itself an interesting feature, finding what to do next is quite a puzzle, as well. Tiny Bang Story is controlled by the usual clicking on everything suspicious, until the way forward is found. To draw some comparisons, I found this game to be quite similar to Machinarium, and the other Flash adventures.
Tiny Bang Story 1

Although pixel-hunting is made easy even on the smaller screens, by letting the player zoom in on the level, the controls aren’t perfect. The main problem is that there’s no clear way of saying, when the transition between different screens happens, so sometimes it’s a challenge to go where is needed, and sometimes – it’s a challenge to stay. I think that simply marking exits with arrows could have eliminated this problem. In any case, besides the slightly uncomfortable controls, the rest of Tiny Bang Story is almost perfect. Puzzles are challenging, but not particularly frustrating, the environments are rich in details and drawn quite marvelously, and the soundtrack is a beautiful instrumental arrangement. It’s everything one could expect from a portable puzzle game. Although the price tag can scare some people off, and it’s somewhat short – it can be finished in about a couple of hours – great quality makes it quite a worthwhile experience.

Treasures Of The Deep Review

Treasures Of The Deep Review

Jul 18, 2013

Might as well admit it. I’m a sucker for when it comes to match-three arcades and the like. They are almost always complete rip-offs of each other, simpler than angering a wasp in rehab, and innovations in this genre happen about as often as South African penguin stampedes. But I can’t help myself: although I like complex, original games as much as the next critic, I can sit hours in front of Bejeweled, erasing more bricks in one sitting, than were stolen during the construction of the Great Wall. I’ve completed Tetris (this might have happened in a dream). Also, I don’t like this next critic. Basically, I’m a hardcore casual player. So, I hope my excitement about Treasures Of The Deep is well understood. I like this game, but it’s definitely not for its innovative gameplay, or amazing story.
Treasures Of The Deep 1

Treasures Of The Deep is a match-three arcade game, which really means it’s Bejeweled with a texture swap. It does have a couple of new gimmicks, and actually has an illustrated story, which is rare for a mobile arcade game, but the gameplay is the same classic experience. There’s a tiled field that contains differently-colored gems. These gems get destroyed whenever there are three or more of them in a line. The player can switch any two neighboring gems. The goal of the game is to collect a set number of shining gems, which get spawned randomly. If it is completed in a set time limit, a golden or silver star is earned, although it’s not a necessary requirement.

An interesting mechanic allows upgrading power-ups that destroy several tiles in a row, or several tiles of same color, etc., spending the gold, acquired during the game. The story is the usual deal about a girl, who embarks on a journey, following a set of clues, given to her by her missing father. Although it’s nothing really interesting, it’s a nice touch that adds to the general richness of the game – and it does look rich. It has great soundtrack, incredible graphics, and smooth controls, all of which definitely place it among the best casual games. I was pleasantly surprised with Treasures Of The Deep, despite the fact that this developer often releases games of great quality.

It’s very safe, and not remotely original, but it’s a very well executed not remotely original, and it definitely plays great. Oh, and it’s not exactly “free” – it requires a dollar-worth activation upon reaching an 8th level or so, also removing any ads. Which is a great deal, I think, because Treasures Of The Deep is really good.
