We went to the GameStop Expo yesterday to look at everything we could during the one-day event, and there is usually a decent quantity of mobile goodness each year. Kongregate were built with a few games displayed this year, three which occur to be also part of the planned five that are heading our way soon.
Of the five planned games for Android between now and also the end of the season, we got to go hands-on with three of them: Spellstone, Brave Squad, and Raid Brigade. Each game is completely not the same as each other too.
This game is actually the first one to make it to Android having a release coming this month. Spellstone is a CCG title with RPG elements layers onto it in addition to multiplayer gameplay too. Players is going to be accumulating their assortment of cards, working their way via a single-player campaign, or dealing with other players in PvP combat or pursuing them when they have a Bounty put them under. Most cards can be leveled as well as evolved to become stronger.
While initially the gameplay looks simplistic, which is so that you can learn all the ins and outs, there is actually a lot of depth to the combat. The stronger cards have abilities that flatter other abilities other cards inside your hand or around the battlefield may have. Also, instead of something like Mana to use when summoning cards/creatures, each card has a ‘delay’ rating instead. So, for example, a card having a delay rating of 3 takes three turns to participating in the battle field.
Spellstone is planned for release onto Android on September 15th, 2015 so long as everything goes well with the beta testing that’s going on at this time. When it does get released, it will likely be available for download free of charge with optional IAPs available too.
This particular game is really a sort of endless runner type of title, but without any running. Instead you will choose one of three pilots that will be offered at launch, after which hit the skies to get as numerous aliens and enemies as possible before dying. You’ll have two planes, one on each side of your plane, that will provide extra support as well. Efforts may also level up along the way, becoming stronger.
The enemies are blurry because of moving extremely fast downwards
When you die, and you will, you’ll be able to spend the money you earned that round on upgrades, or save your valuable money up for future ones. Upgrades vary from permanently increasing the strength of the shots, to temporary shields, distance boosters, and so on.
Brave Squad continues to be in development and it has an over-all release time frame of October 15th, 2015. Obviously that may change, just depends upon how the remaining game’s development and testing goes.
The last game we checked out is called Raid Brigade and it is a blend of strategy, action, and RPG gameplay all-in-one title. In addition, you will have city building mechanics as well. Players will have their very own kingdom to develop, resources to collect, and so on. You will see over 100 heroes for players to gather as well, all of which fall under three main classes: Warrior, Ranged, and Magic.
When not working on building your city, you’ll be taking your present number of heroes out and completing quests, finding loot, leveling them up, and defeating bosses. This area of the game almost feels like a dungeon crawler in some ways, since you is going to be controlling your heroes and killing off enemies. After each ‘dungeon’ you’ll also have a boss fight too.
Raid Brigade is slated for release in November 15th, 2015. This, too, is really a tentative release date as long as everything goes smoothly with the remainder from the development.
We ought to be getting more details about these 3 games, along with the other upcoming titles, in the neat future. Whenever we do, we will post an update too.
