About Shadow Era
Shadow Era was the very first full-scale mobile trading card game (TCG) that also features a free-to-play game model hailed by TouchArcade as “a fantastic representation of what freemium games should be.” Shadow Era avoids in-turn interrupts that can greatly slowdown TCG game play, while still allowing for deep strategy and surprises. Shadow Era is a TCG that is easy to learn, well-balanced, and fun to play; earning it fans from casual players to serious tournament
Since the launch, Shadow Era’s community has grown, attracting more than 4 million registered players and one of the largest and most active official forums of any TCG. The game currently features 350 cards, available to play on iOS, Android, PC, Mac and even in a web browser. There is also a premium quality physical version of the game, using the exact same rules found in the digital version. This is quite the undertaking for a small indy game company, and they’ve got grand plans ahead for their growing fan base!

Collect coins to boost your scroll and find scrolls that will give you the best score boost. Speed is not your friend. Sure you can jump further, but jumping further is not always the best option.

Trial By Survival is a post-apocalyptic, top-down action role-playing game set in an overgrown world long after civilization has collapsed. The player’s character has been accused of unspeakable crimes and banished to the wasteland to prove their innocence. The player writes the rest of their survival story using game mechanics like character perks, weapon building/leveling, companionship and real world scavenging. Randomly generated maps and levels keep every game unique and permanent death is a feature that keeps the game challenging. Trial By Survival has great replay value.
The game world of Trial By Survival is very kinetic and responsive to the player’s actions. Cars will explode, igniting
buildings on fire, which can spread to other objects. Windows break when shot with a weapon or when enemies come crashing through them. Walls can be broken to create impromptu escape routes.
Trial By Survival’s graphic art style is influenced by comics. The world is lush with overgrowth as nature takes over where civilization once was. Vines dangle from power lines and flowers grow out into the street. This environment is enhanced by subtle environmental effects and punctuated by realistic sounds and special effects for combat.
Trial By Survival has two game modes, Survival Mode and Arena Mode that complement each other. The scavenging system in Survival Mode requires coins that can be earned in Arena Mode, and weapons can be unlocked for Arena Mode through progress in Survival Mode.
Trial By Survival is a universal app and is free in the App Store. In-App purchases are available ranging from .99-$3.99.

Real Racing 3, one of the most anticipated game releases for iOS for some time, has finally hit the App Store for download. The photorealistic tracks and cars are real courses, brands and models respectively, making this version of Real Racing the most realistic racing game for iOS available. Having been a long time racing game player on Xbox – F1 2012, Forza, etc – Real Racing 3 in many ways is better than a console game purely from a graphics perspective.
Interestingly, Electronic Arts has made Real Racing 3 a “Freemium” game meaning that the game itself is free but there are limitations in the game which you have to make in-app purchases to get around those limitations. This model is nothing new – most of the top games in the App Store have this exact same model and, having played Real Racing 3 for a few hours now you can do a lot of racing without making a single in-app purchase. But you have to be patience for things like repair times or when a car can become available after you purchase it, etc.
Let’s start with the basics: Real Racing 3 is a whopping 750MB download. Yes, all those pretty graphics come at a price, namely storage space on your iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini or iPod Touch. EA recommends that you have at least 2GB free space on your device to play the game as it will need to do a lot of graphics caching to work properly (i.e. frame rates). You will have to download it via iTunes or via WiFi from your device directly. The game is supported on the iPhone 4, 4S and 5, iPad 2, iPad 3rd & 4th generation, iPod Touch 4th and 5th generation, and iPad Mini. The afore in-app purchases range in price from $1.99 to $19.99.
Racing Circuits of Real Racing 3
One of the big changes to Real Racing 3 over previous versions of the game is the inclusion of real racing circuits. These race tracks include some of the most famous from around the world and the FireMonkey development team of EA spent hundreds of hours at the actual tracks to get the details right. That work paid off – for you. Now you can race on circuits such as Mazda Raceway Leguna Seca (USA), Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium), Silverstone (England), Indianpolis Motor Speedway (USA), Suzuki Circuit (Japan) and Hockenheimring (Germany) just to name a few. Having these real course pulls you even further into the racing experience where you get to figure out how to control the car through the almighty
Eau Rouge turn at Spa for example. If you are a Formula 1 fan, ALMS or World Endurance fan, you will smile when you get to race around one of these circuits.
The work the FireMonkey team put into getting these circuits accurate is evident the first lap you turn at them. The textures of the circuits are superb and the surrounding backgrounds of the circuits are accurate to the finest level. Once you see one of the tracks you will quickly figure out where the bulk of the 750MB download came from on the install. But it is worth it.
There are other little detailed improvements to the game like a working rear view mirror in the cars. This is thanks to the Mint 3 Engine that is being used to render the graphics being able to keep up with the game play.
Ludia, the developer behind Jurassic Park Builder for iOS, has just released a significant update to the dinosaur park building game in the App Store. The update brings a wide range of updates and improvements including new levels and new ways to build your own park.
As the name suggests, Jurassic Park Builder is a game loosely based on the movie series where you have to build your own dinosaur park and deal with the challenges of doing so – from raging dino’s to people getting lost. It’s quite addictive and remains one of my favourite strategy/builder games. You can read my review here. A couple of updates ago the
underwater park was added to the game so you can now build your park both on land and under the sea, complete with prehistoric sea creatures. This update expands on that and offers new creatures to collect and display in your park.
The release notes for the update cover most of the improvements, fixes or updates to the game:
- Experience new land and aquatic based missions with all your favorite characters from the Jurassic Park universe.
- Challenge yourself by reaching Level 50 in the game.
- All new sea creatures for you to discover and collect.
- Brand new underwater decorations to embellish your park.
- New aquatic buildings giving you more options to collect coins.
- Economy improvements for evolving your dinosaurs and embarking on expeditions.
- Various bug fixes have been implemented.
- Many performance issues should be resolved.
Jurassic Park Builder is a free game and it is a universal app for iPhone,iPod Touch, iPad and iPad Mini. There are a wide range of in-app purchases available ranging in price from $1.99 to $99.99. Having played the game for many months now you will likely need to make an in-app purchase to get to a next level. In total I have spent about $15 on the game in the last 6 months. My son however has been playing the same amount of time and has only spent $5 and is at the same level- clearly a better player than me. My point is to be prepared to spend a little.
