Out Now: ‘Panthera Frontier’, ‘Age of Rivals’, ‘The Little Acre’, ‘Phantasy Star II’, ‘Hopeless 3: Dark Hollow Earth’, ‘Dash Legends’, ‘Hey Wingman’ and More

Welcome to another week of new iOS games, and it’s definitely an unusual week compared to most. First off, it’s quite a bit busier than your typical week for some reason. But the other weird thing is that Sega launched its Sega Forever program which sees classic Sega titles released for mobile for free, and we’ll continue to see new titles every two week for the foreseeable future. The problem is that this initial batch is far from exciting, and 3 of the 5 games released were games that have already been on iOS in some fashion. Even the 2 new to mobile games are nothing to write home about. Anyway, it’ll be interesting to see how that initiative evolves, but even if you’re not into old Sega games there’s TONS of awesome stuff on offer this week so check out the full list below and let us know which games you’ll be picking up!


 

Age of Rivals

iTunes Description

There are many paths to victory in this competitive strategy boardgame featuring hundreds of cards ranging from great pyramids and war elephants to sneaky spies and crafty merchants. Perfectly balance your city’s culture, military, defense and economy to outwit your opponent and win!

Age of Rivals was inspired by strategy boardgames and designed to be ideal for 1 or 2 players to play in 10 minutes with plenty of depth and replayability. It’s the “anti-deckbuilding” CCG, where having only minimal control over your deck encourages endless variety in each game and puts the focus on in-the-moment tactical decision-making.

There are no in-app purchases. All game content unlocks at a constant pace just by playing the game.

‘Panthera Frontier’ Brings Furry Space Battles to iOS and Android Next Week

Ayopa Games and Extend Interactive have revealed Panthera Frontier is hitting mobile on June 22nd. Controlling what is sure to be a furry-approved cast of characters, you’ll assemble a motley crew and do battle with other spaceships in an attempt to be the greatest crew in the cosmos. You’ll discover new alien species, powerful weapons, and get involved in an endless number of space battles. Looks intriguing to me, and that’s not because of the furries, dang it:

Now, while Panthera Frontier has been kind of floating around in development for a while now – seriously, it was in beta on Windows Phone 8 – and it has what looks like a few free-to-play elements, don’t fret, TA readers: the game’s going to be paid on iOS and Android. It’ll run you a smooth $ 4.99 at launch, with $ 9.99 as the planned regular price. Spaceship battles, in what seems like kind of an FTL-esque style, sound intriguing to me, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for this next week. Plus, Panthera makes me think of Pantera, so I’ll have to blast some of that as I play. Until then, discuss in the forums!
