RPG Fans Get Ready for a Good Time in the App Store! Ravensword: Shadowlands, Final Fantasy 4, and More Hot New Games This Week
At this point, you might as well cancel plans for that last minute trip to the mall. It’s going to be very crowded in there, and whoever you’re shopping for should be just as happy if you gift them one of these new apps instead of a piece of clothing they’ll want to return later… The App Store is about to go on break for the holidays, but before it does, developers have made sure to get their best offerings out there. Turns out this final round of releases is heavy on the RPGs, and good ones, at that. Check out trailers and details below!
Ravensword: Shadowlands Universal
(3.5 stars with 2347 Ratings)
Crescent Moon Games has had the eye of RPG fans for quite some time with this one. Ravenswords: Shadowlands is finally released with a price tag of $6.99. This is a huge open-world RPG adventure shown with visuals that just might be unprecedented. And with lots of exciting action elements to boot, our hopes for Ravensword just might be founded!
FINAL FANTASY IV
FINAL FANTASY IV Universal
(4.5 stars with 2362 Ratings)
The first of the FF games to introduce the Active Time Battle System, FINAL FANTASY IV arrives in the App Store for an asking price of $16.99. That’s more than the handful of change we’re used to dropping on most games, but the iOS version is supposed to be a revamped game with new visuals and playability, and long-time fans probably won’t hesitate.
Anomaly Korea Universal
(4.5 stars with 281 Ratings)
If you liked Anomaly Warzone Earth, you’ll be glad to learn that this is its sequel. Chillingo’s Anomaly Korea is $2.99 and features the same type of alien robots, but in Korea, where you’ll play this twist on tower defense in hopes of fighting back the invasion.
(4 stars with 1018 Ratings)
This “8-bit karate classic” is brought to us by the creator of Prince of Persia. It appears to be thoughtfully-adapted to iOS, and can be had for just $2.99.
(4.5 stars with 59 Ratings)
Get ready to journey through Japan as you gain the experience necessary to wake up your mysterious powers… Ronin works on simple movements like jumping, attacking, and avoiding. It costs 99 cents.
Pudding Monsters Universal
(4.5 stars with 7369 Ratings)
This one might be just another 99-cent offering in the App Store, but it also might be amazing since it’s from the same people who made Cut the Rope… Pudding Monsters uses “stick-‘em-together gameplay,” whatever that is, and it comes with 75 levels at first launch.
