There are a huge number of RPGs on the App Store and Google Play. Meaning a new one will need to do something different to get a regular playing audience. Does Eternity Legends Warriors do enough to stick out from the already heaving crowd? Is it fun?

I normally answer a question like this with ease, a game is fun to play, or it isn’t. But Eternity Legends Warriors is stuck in the middle of fun and not fun. On the surface, you’ve got combat you control, friends to call in and several moves to pop off.

Yet, somehow when combat is at its most intense I feel lost. Not just lost because there is so much going on that I temporarily lose my character, but totally taken out of the game by crappy sound effects. It seems they have only recorded one sound clip of an enemy being hit, and once I noticed this no fight felt special.

Was it challenging?

The game starts off just like every other RPG that has recently hit our devices, with a lengthy hidden tutorial. By lengthy hidden tutorial, I mean a voice that constantly chips in giving you important information as you play. This isn’t really a gripe, just one of the many things this game has copied from others.

The lengthy tutorial just means you are facing off against the easiest opponents for a long while. Some people like killing easy enemies that pose no threat, I, however, find the lack of a genuine challenge boring and repetitive.

That’s not to say this game is all bad because it isn’t. It just brings nothing new to the table in terms of an experience for its users. I am sure most of us have played games like this before, where we have a basic squad, with basic gear and have to play hundreds of missions before that changes.

Am I too critical?

If you haven’t played an RPG like this before then I am sure you will find hours of fun at your fingertips. If you are like me and have already invested time into several similar games, like Fire Emblem Heroes or AFK Arena, then I don’t think there is much to see here.

I can admit that there is a lot going on inside of Eternity Legends Warriors. There are five different campaigns, three difficulties and I haven’t even mentioned the PvP elements yet.

But the little things have really put me off this game. I have played a lot of RPGs recently and most of them are high in quality. Eternity Legends Warriors seems to only have one noise for when the enemy takes damage. No matter the size of the enemy or even if it’s a boss, there is just one noise played repeatedly.

Should you play it?

If you are a fan of RPGs and are just looking for the next thing to sink a bunch of hours into, then look no further. I really see potential here, but it was disappointing that nothing new was brought to the table. There are campaign missions, PvP combat and tons of challenges, but I challenge you to find an RPG without the previously mentioned.

Eternity Legends Warriors is an action strategy RPG where you have control over a squad of Greek Myth legends. There is no shortage of things to do in this RPG, meaning you will need to be on top of your game if you want to be king of the Arena. Eternity Legends Warriors – ELW

ELW is an RPG with six different campaigns to contest with. There is a hive section where you can chance opening up sections on a grid for a tasty reward. Or you can try out the skyscraper where rooms get harder and harder for better rewards. You can do all the aforementioned and compete in PvP combat in the Arena.

As well as the usual campaigning and other standard RPG things to do, there is gear to craft, upgrade and new squad members to summons and use. There is no end to the amount of time you can put into ELW, so let’s tell you how to be good at it.

Tips, Cheats and Strategies
  • Let the game equip for you. Once you get a new piece of equipment, like a spear or chest plate, you will be able to preview it. After this, you can see who the equipment benefits and let the game equip it for you. This will assign the gear in the most effective way possible, allowing you to carry on with your questing.
  • Do everything. I have mentioned the many activities you can do inside of Eternity Legends Warriors, so do them. Do as many as you can as often as you can, there is no downside to any of them. Some are more rewarding than others, so find the most difficult activities for the best loot.
  • Choose something to craft. The first thing you craft is free and shows how many materials you will need to craft something. I recommend choosing an item to aim for and then work towards it. It may take a while, but if worse comes to worst you unlock something else on the way.
  • Be careful in PvP. A problem with fighting other players in a game like this is you can pay to win. When you start the game, you won’t have many/any good characters. But if you buy some chests, then you will gain a serious advantage over everyone who doesn’t. So you have been warned.

Brave Order is a brand new gacha RPG that absorbs elements of strategy games and the hit Dota 2 mod Auto Chess to create something, well, not all that different to what we’ve seen before really.

You’ll create your own army, made out of heroes and standard fantasy units. You’ll then head out on a wide variety of battles that play out pretty much the same every time.

Before the battle begins, you can place your various soldiers in strategic formations on a grid. Generally, this involves placing your warriors in front of your archers and mages – basically creating a frontline to protect your backline.

Then, you’ll initiate the battle and watch it play out. Both armies will charge at each other simultaneously, with each unit attacking the first one it comes into contact with. That’s pretty much the height of the strategy here.

Brave Order - YouTube
There Really Isn’t Much Strategy to Brave Order’s Auto Chess Inspired Combat System

Hero units can use special skills, which recharge periodically throughout the battle. Depending on the type of hero, the skill will be different. Warriors might create a temporary shield, mages heal, and rangers unleash a powerful AoE attack.

There is some light strategy in deciding which skill to use and when to use it. Appropriate skill usage can turn the tide of the battles.

However, this is a free to play pay to win RPG, so the difficulty is all artificial. Initially, you’ll breeze through each battle with your overpowered army but pretty soon you’ll hit that paywall and will reach out for the credit card to give your army the edge.

Because it’s all a numbers game: the army with the heroes and units that have the bigger numbers in terms of statistics will absolutely demolish the opponent. How do you get your numbers up? Well, there are two primary methods.

Ultimately, This is Just a Numbers Game

You can grind it out for absolutely ages, replaying battles, sucking up the daily rewards, and obsessively checking your phone to see if your heroes have returned from a mission yet. This will trickle in resources necessary to collect new heroes, upgrade older ones, and improve statistics in a number of different ways.

Alternatively though, you could just whip out your card and give the game a little cash injection. That will allow you to just increase your power in a heartbeat, making the game a breeze again until you hit another paywall and the process resets.

If you’re the sort of person that is immune to pay to win and free to play nasties, then you might appreciate that Brave Order at least attempts to do something different – even if it is just by combining two popular genres to create something somewhat fresh.

The rest of us can easily write this one off though. It’s not really a game, but an exercise in spending ridiculous sums of money.

Brave Order is a brand new mobile strategy game that challenges you to create your own army, place your units in a formation, and take on opposing armies in a wide variety of battles.

Along the way, you’ll pick up new heroes, troops, and a bunch of resources that let you level up and upgrade everything.

In this guide, we’re going to help you get on the way to becoming a powerful general We’ll give you a bunch of tips and tricks on how to build the most powerful army and demolish all of your opponents.

Brave Order - YouTube
Brave Order Tips and Tricks:

  • Place frontline soldiers in front of your backline: Before a battle begins, you can place your heroes and units anywhere on your Chess-like grid. When the battle begins, your units will move forward and attack the first enemies they encounter, and the same goes for your enemies. It makes sense then, to place your frontline soldiers in front of the backline like archers and mages so the enemy can’t reach them.
  • Use hero skills whenever possible: Hero skills recharge as the battle goes on. Once fully charged, you can tap them to unleash that particular hero’s skill. Depending on the hero, this skill will be different. It might heal nearby allies, create a shield around that particular hero, or deal massive AoE damage. Use the one most appropriate to your current situation.
  • Level up your heroes: You’ll earn experience that you can apply between battles to level up your heroes, improving their statistics. Check to see if you can level up your heroes between battle to keep them growing in power.
  • Take on missions for extra rewards: You can assign heroes to complete missions for extra rewards. These take time to complete but it’s worth having as many underway as possible at all times to keep the rewards trickling in.
  • Get your daily rewards: You’ll get free stuff just for logging in each day, so if you plan on playing this in the longterm, we recommend at least logging into the game every day – even if you don’t intend to play it that day. That way, you’ll keep earning rewards.

Archero is a beautiful Archery based game, where the aim of the game is to get as strong as possible. You only get one life, so you have to keep collecting upgrades to maintain high damage and good health. Rooms are randomly generated, as are the upgrades you can choose from so gameplay is fresh every time you play. Is Archero Unique?

Yes, I would argue that the gameplay in Archero is unique and enjoyable. Ok, there are elements that have been done before, like random abilities and enemies. But, other than these elements, the entire experience is unique and fresh.

Every time you meet an angle, defeat a boss or rank up, it will give you the chance to add one more upgrade to your character. Each upgrade you add stacks on top of the previous, meaning the longer you survive the more powerful your bow becomes.

With the wide array of power-ups, it’s rare to end up with the same list of upgrades as a previous go. This encourages you to experiment with the different options that appear every time it presents you with an upgrade. Sometimes this benefits you, other times you realise this power-up is one to avoid.

Is Archero Fun?

I can say this without a doubt yes. Some new players may find it difficult because it demands a level of excellence from you. You are supposed to dodge as much as possible, dealing damage is only half the battle. You need to make sure you get hit as little as possible, this is because of the scarce amount of health that is given back to you.

If you are not getting past the first 15 levels, then you are choosing bad upgrades, or you are being too greedy with your shots. Landing one or two shots before moving is a fair trade for taking no damage. Standing still for a period will get you killed, so keep moving.

Archero is a game where the only control you have is the player movement, yet there is so much more to it than just moving. It requires you to be thinking ahead and checking what projectiles are coming at you from every direction. Once you know how enemies move in a certain way, you can dodge effectively. So do not expect to hit the ground running, prepare for some trial and error.

Is It Repetitive?

The answer to this question is surprising, no. Yes, you may only have control over your movement, but this doesn’t mean the game gets boring. You have multiple elements that are randomly generated, making each attempt unique in its own right.

Your perfectly good runs can go sour in a matter of seconds, causing frustration. This frustration is not aimed at the game, instead, it is at yourself for making several mistakes which cost you your life. This frustration rarely ended with me quitting the application, instead, I just had to go back in and try to redeem myself.

Conclusion

I love this game; I love the challenge, the randomness and the difficulty progression. I think the graphics are good enough, the enemy behaviours are difficult to avoid and the challenge makes gameplay fun.

I don’t really have anything negative to say about this game. I wish I could stack more energy to have more turns, and I wish the energy regenerated faster. Other than these small problems, this game is well worth playing!

Godzilla Defense Force is the screen tapping base builder with a twist, you get to fight and collect giant monsters from the Godzilla Universe. This may sound like a walk in the park, but it is actually rather challenging. It proved to be so challenging that we made this guide to help you guys out. Defense Force

The aim of the game is simple, defend your city from an onslaught of monsters. However, defending yourself from the likes of Godzilla from 1966 or Hedorah from 1971 is easier said than done. These giants pack a punch, so you’ll need good tactics to beat these icons.

But before we get into tactics there is one more aspect of Godzilla Defense Force that is worth talking about, the Codex. The Codex is a wonderful source of unique information regarding every monster you face.

I’ve always thought a good game doesn’t require the user to do much reading, but a great game rewards the player. I can’t say much about the greatness of this game, but reading up about each monster is strangely rewarding.

Tips, Cheats and Strategies
  • Keep an eye out. It’s easy to get distracted while you tap frantically to spawn as many troops as you can. An eagle-eyed player would notice that every now and again random events can pop up. These events include a UFO which drops X-nium, civilians that need rescuing and bonus attacks you can do to bosses.
  • Chose your cards wisely. Although you collect a wide array of monster cards, some of these cards are more useful than others. Some cards have a more powerful buff that lasts longer than a previous card. Whereas, cards like Godzilla ‘66 can deal a humongous chunk of damage to any enemy. It matters what cards you have in your selection, some have more notable effects than others.
  • Time Travel? When you get to rank five, you will travel back in time to get some artefacts. Artefacts are like bonuses, they can all be stacked together and provide abilities like extra damage. A downside to getting these bonuses is that you travel back in time to the start of the game, so you have to re-unlock the cities and fight the same bosses. The earlier you travel back in time, the less you lose.
  • I keep dying. It’s normal to fail a level in Godzilla Defense Force. It shows you are not strong enough for the boss you are facing. To combat this, click the icon that looks like a “G” in the bottom left, and upgrade what facilities you have as many times as you can. If you have a little amount of money, then watch an advert for the relief package.
  • Use Godzilla ‘66. The Godzilla from 1966 has been my favourite card for a while now. This card deals massive damage to a boss immediately, meaning all you need to do is spam as many troops as you can for 30 seconds to kill the boss. Without using this card, I would still be stuck on the same boss fights I cleared a while ago.

Evolution 2: Utopia is a brand new third person shooter on mobile that features a ton of action-packed content as you battle aliens, mercenaries, and other players in various different modes.

There’s a wealth of weapons and equipment to unlock and upgrade, technology to research, and planets to explore over the course of the lengthy adventure. Did we mention there’s also a lot of things to shoot?

In this guide, we’re going to give you a bunch of tips and tricks to help you get off to a flying start. You can also check out our full review, which details whether or not this is worth your time.

Evolution 2: Battle for Utopia - Game Trailer - YouTube
Evolution 2 Tips and Tricks:

  • Shoot the closest enemies first: The enemies closest to you are more often than not the biggest threat. This is particularly true during horde levels, where you have to battle tons of mutant alien spiders and the like. Take the closest ones down first, and swap to a weapon that performs better in close range if you have to, like the shotgun.
  • Save your firepower for bosses or tougher enemies: Grenades and rocket launchers are best saved for use against bosses and tougher enemies, as most of the weaker enemies can be mowed down with relative ease using your base weapons. The same goes for your sniper shots – use these against enemies that need to go down quickly, like grenadiers or other snipers.
  • Hold the right side of the screen to buy yourself time: Tapping and holding on the right side of the screen slows down time and allows you to swap targets. However, we found it a useful mechanic when we needed to buy ourselves some time. If you need to get out of the way of a grenade or melee enemy, you can use this to quickly get some respite from the action.
  • Upgrade your favourite weapons – and don’t forget your armour: You can upgrade weapons and armour using steel and other resources you’ll gather as you play. You’ll also quite quickly learn which weapons you use more often than the others. Upgrade these first – and don’t forget your armour. That’ll keep you alive when your assault rifle runs out of bullets.
  • Always be crafting and researching: You can craft health kits, grenades, and various other equipment that you’ll need in the various levels you’ll battle through. Always have a steady supply coming in by crafting stuff between battles. The same goes for research – always have something researching in the background to ensure you’ve always got what you need when you need it.

Evolution 2: Utopia is the latest game to try and make the third person shooter work on mobile. It’s surprising this hasn’t been nailed yet, given how it’s much easier to create a control scheme for third person shooters on touch than it is for complex first person games.

This attempts it by keeping things simple, with you taking minimal control of the character. You’ll make him dash between cover, switch targets with the help of some slick slo-mo, and unleash your powerful weapons like grenades and rocket launchers.

The actual shooting and reloading happens automatically, with the exception of the sniper rifle. You have to aim that manually and pull the trigger yourself, which is easily the most exciting part of the experience.

Evolution 2’s Simplistic Design Works Both For and Against it

That simplicity works both for and against Evolution 2. The good: it works, never feels fiddly, and you’ll feel like an absolute god pulling off headshots with a sniper rifle, taking out multiple enemies with a well-placed grenade, and blowing up a boss with a single shot of your rocket launcher.

The downside though, is that Evolution 2 plays all of its cards far too early. After just a few levels, you’ll have seen pretty much all it has to offer and it’s, admittedly, not a lot. No matter how short the levels are, there really isn’t enough to them to justify shooting your way through hundreds of them.

There are a few carrots to encourage you to keep playing, like collecting new partners that will join you in battle, weapon and armour upgrades to increase their power, and equipment to craft like grenades and health kits.

You can also head on over to the lab and research new technology. This includes research gatherers, new weapons and armour, helicopters, and more. Research takes time though, and speeding up all of this stuff is likely where premium players will drain all their cash.

Evolution 2: Battle for Utopia - Game Trailer - YouTube
There’s Loads of Upgrade Options but You’ll Really Have to Enjoy the Game to Dig Them

You’re going to have to really enjoy the base game to find any of that stuff a real draw and the lack of depth really hurts its longevity. Just a few short levels in we already found ourselves losing interest.

There is some variety to the enemies that will shoot, and it does lead to some slight strategy. Ultimately though, it just boils down to getting out of the way of things and prioritising which enemy to shoot first.

Granted, visuals are far less important than gameplay when picking a new game to play longterm but it wouldn’t be fair to not at least mention that Evolution 2: Utopia is a looker. It’s not quite up there with the best on mobile, but it runs in 60 FPS.

Overall, Evolution 2 Works but Doesn’t Have Enough Variety to Become a Mainstay on Your Mobile

Overall, Evolution 2: Utopia is largely inoffensive. It all works: the controls are decent, there’s plenty of upgrade paths to dig your way through, and battling enemies feels quite satisfying. Ultimately though, there’s just not enough variety to the action to keep you interested long term.

Godzilla Defense Force is a base management game where it is up to you to save famous cities around the world from giant monsters. It may sound straightforward, but you try to manage your base while dealing with a constant stream of giant monsters. G… Godzilla!

Godzilla Defense Force is a real gem for any fan of Godzilla or anyone who wants to know more about the Godzilla Universe. Whenever you fight a giant monster, you will unlock the card form and can view it in your Codex. Viewing this monster in your codex gives you the lowdown on where the beast came from, plus pictures of the beast from the movie.

If you don’t want to know more about the monsters, that’s fine too. You can use these monster cards mid-battle as a devastating attack or a buff for a short while. Either way, there is fun to be had attacking monsters and to collect them.

Fun, but for how long?

It’s hard to say how long you can spend playing Godzilla Defense Force, but one thing I can say is gameplay is immersive. Time flies while you manically press the screen with as many fingers as you have available.

This may not sound challenging, but you also need to manage your base and complete objectives. You need to stay on top of your game which is why I have lost hours of my life just tapping away.

A lot of base managers or city builders want to slow you down with wait times or other pay walls, whereas that is not the case here. There is a constant stream of enemies, and every now and again a giant monster to contend with. You only get a break from the onslaught if you want to move city or open some monster decks.

I am sure at some point I will get bored with spamming the screen 1000 times over, but that hasn’t been the case so far. When you defeat a giant monster, you get the chance to land the final blows. So you can slash away at the giant, all while getting paid to do so, it’s supremely satisfying.

Overview

On the surface, Godzilla Defense Force looks like a generic copy of an overpopulated genre of game, but it delivers more than expected. I have played a lot of city builders/ base managers and none of them has had me focused on my screen for this long.

Perhaps it’s because there is rarely a break from the waves of monsters, or maybe because it is a game designed to be played. Yes, there are packs to purchase and money to be spent, but you don’t have to. Your progress isn’t limited because you aren’t paying, if you were to fail you have the chance to claim a large sum of cash to help you upgrade.

Basically, it’s a game made with you in mind. You’re not sat around watching a wait timer go down. Or forced to watch advert after ad, instead you are tasked with saving cities and that’s exactly what it feels like.

Archero is all about taking your bow and arrow to the unrelenting forces of evil. It’s a game where you take on rooms full of enemies using nothing but a bow and arrow. Fear not, as each time you level up you or your bow gains a new ability.

You can get an upgrade by levelling up, killing a boss or finding an angle. These upgrades can be useful at the moment like healing up. Or they can be useful long term like firing two arrows at once. Either way, it’s up to you to make sure you live as long as you can while getting as strong as possible.

Tips, Cheats and Strategies
  • Know thy enemy. In a game where the enemies never stop coming, it’s important for you to learn who you are up against. Once you know how an enemy moves and attacks, you can dodge and attack effectively.
  • Kill or be killed. If you die, you start again from the beginning. This means working your way up from the basic bow and low health, etc. So treat your health bar with serious care as it is hard to get your health back.
  • Experiment with power-ups. Don’t play safe and always grab the same power-ups, you might miss out on some crazy combinations. Stacking similar attacks is a great way to do a lot of damage, for example, poison and burning effect will do serious damage after your arrow hits.
  • Heal or upgrade? Well, it’s situational but there is no point grabbing an upgrade if your health is low. Be sensible, is it worth risking your turn for one more upgrade, or do you play safe and just get the health.
  • Move and shoot. You can’t ever shoot while you are moving, so you will need to move after you have fired your shot. The greedier you are with how many shots you fire will increase your risk of being hit.
  • Dodge is everything. Not getting hit is as important as hitting the enemy, so it matters how you dodge an enemy’s shot. Ideally, you want to be as brave as possible and move away at the last second. This will avoid the maximum amount of enemy shots in one move.
