Android Game: War And Order

War and Order is an online Android fantasy-strategy game that I’ve been playing for a few days now.

screenshot_20170102-215219It is quite addicting, and it lets you built a city, recruit soldiers, gather resources, battle monsters and other players, get involved in raids and research different technologies to make your civilization more powerful.

The graphics look decent, at the beginning of the game you can build and evolve faster for free but then you will have to spend amounts of time waiting for buildings to be completed or resources gathered. But all-in-all is a very interesting game.

You also have a Lord with different skills that help improve your civilization.

As stated on Google Play, War and Order is a game in which:

Orc Knights, Elf Sages, Dragon Riders, and other incredible warriors are waiting to fight for your empire! Raise a massive fantasy army for HUGE, spectacularly animated battles! Axes fly, dragons roar, and fireballs sizzle as you clash with enemies from all over the world in real-time. Call on your allies to rush to your aid on horse- and lizard-back. Repay them with your undying loyalty as you take castles, slay ogres, and stake new territory as a tribe! THIS is the game you won’t be able to put it down as your screen lights up with constant new battles, chats, and upgrades!

You must battle to become more powerful than any king in history! But you can’t do it alone. It’s up to you and your allies to unite the fantasy races like never before as you conquer an endless world of empires and imagination.

Android Games: Super Hot Trigger

Screenshot_2016-03-16-23-11-53

There is something that the Android First Person Shooter games offer in exchange for your time and that is a lot of screams and insults. That’s right. I’ve played almost every FPS game on Android I could find but this one is very different. It is good, unique and has a few moments of hardened difficulty. And I entered a few stages of rage mode :))

Super Hot Trigger is developed by Swift Apps LLC.  As said on Google Play:

BEST SLOW MOTION SHOOTER ON GOOGLE PLAY!
First person shooter where you can control time. Defeat your enemies and use time to your advantage. Use multiple weapons, explore huge levels and master your skills to complete deadly missions!

– Advanced slow-motion mechanics
– Mesmerizing 3D environment
– Cutting edge graphics
– Massive and challenging levels
– Variety of extreme weapons
– Easy controls and smooth gameplay

CONTROLLING THE TIME
When you’re standing still the time moves very slowly but if you make just a little move the time immediately speeds up. When you’re shooting you’re also speeding the time up so be very careful.

TOUCH SCREEN CONTROLS
To move in any direction you have to use joystick in the bottom left corner. To look around you can swipe anywhere on the screen. If you want to shoot just use button in bottom right corner. Pause button is situated in the top left corner.

GRAPHICS AND QUALITY SETTINGS
You’ll be amazed by top notch graphics including real time light effects, laser sharp animations and destructible environment. The graphics quality will be automatically detected for your device, however you can change it in the settings menu. To visit settings click the screw button in bottom left corner in main menu scene.

The graphics look decent. There are two main categories of levels. One – in which you have to take down a certain number of enemies – or plasma soldiers – as they are represented through the game and the second type which is more like a run for an exit – in which you have to find the portal and go through it – if you survive the attacks of your foes.

There is one level in which you will continue to climb up a ladder and take out enemies while a magmatic field is filling up the room you are in. The best point of this game is the time controller. As you move, the time moves faster. If you find yourself standing and looking for your way out – it will slow down. There are various weapons to choose from and a total of 12 levels.

Kate: Puzzle

image

One of my favorite PC games is Mirror’s Edge. Has a lot of strong points which include a cool story, lots of action, an amazing soundtrack and a splendid artwork.

I guess that is why I enjoyed it so much, because of the simplistic abstract artwork. I even got a tattoo with the logo of the game. This was planned a very long time ago. Wanted something simple, black, something that should remind me of fun times. And I went with the logo of Mirror’s Edge.

Thing is… A tattoo just demands another one.. And then another one… Just like Pringles, you cannot have just one :)))

I plan to get another one saying “Silent Hill”, I just have to find the perfect font for it. But for now I am very pleased with this one and I am very fond of it. This morning I woke up and after playing some Dead Trigger (android zombie FPS), I listened to one of the songs from the Mirror’s Edge Official Soundtrack. It is called Kate (Puzzle). Harmoniously pleasant to hear. Produced by Solar Fields.

Kritika: The White Knights Guide [Part 1]

I personally enjoy more the First Person Shooter genre or the Horror Survival one when we talk gaming.

Of course I played many games that can be included in every genre and subgenre, from flash games to role playing games, point-and-click, puzzles, arcades, intelligent or stupid ones. Used to make reviews of them back then.

So – for my own pleasure and to inform you about aspects of different games I will start a series of articles called Guides in which I will present different games for PC and also for Android.

Kritika: The White Knights is an Android Online 3D RPG by Gamevil.

It is free to play and can become addictive once you start playing and developing a character. In my case every game is addictive lol, since I played every game at least twice.. 😂.

The first thing I want to talk about are the characters. My character at the moment is a level 43 Cat Acrobat.

But you can choose from 5 different characters, each having a unique set of skills and abilities.

Shadow Mage – a mage that users shadows to restrain and annihilate enemies in close combat. Specialized in short-range attacks and inflicts heavy damage. Possesses skills that can bind enemies.

Crimson Assassin – it has been recently added to the game. A character that specializes in short-range battles. Sets herself apart in battles with bosses and PvP (player versus player) matches with her short skill cooldowns and versatile mobility.

Berserker – a character that attacks enemies with much gusto. Possesses various skills that tear through the battlefield and scorching attacks to completely wipe out enemies.

Cat Acrobat – a character with extravagant yet effortless specialized combos ideal for close combat. Possesses various skills including multi-hits. One blow alone can immobilize enemies.

Dark Valkyrie – an expert fighter who always keeps her cool. Can switch from offense to defense in a flash and likes to toy with enemies from a mid range distance.

Well these are the in-game descriptions of each Kritika character. I chose the Cat Acrobat since I like close combat… and because the character was cute (cough). After starting a game, a trainer will guide you through your journey.

You can access Sales – for inner app purchases. I never viewed these as being okay. If you really want to feel the atmosphere and play the game right, you have to battle and earn your own equipment and skill points – otherwise it is irrelevant.

You have a shop from where you can buy stuff. You can either use gold or karats which are very valuable and not so easy to obtain. Karats can be used to buy avatars, wings, weapons, accessories, pets, keys for chests, potions and so on.

Inventory – each RPG has a character’s inventory.

Skills – here you can manage and upgrade your skills.

Sockets – different gems with different abilities are gained throughout the game.

You have a menu for daily quests. By completing them you also gain karats.

Later in the game you are allowed to have a pet. I just messed up a bit with mine (had a Woodster – an angry log.. lol) and accidentally evolved it into UFO… Damn..

The game offers three distinctive types of playing. Stages – travel to various locations and defeat monsters. You gain gold, equipment and experience points. Survival – has two parts – Monster Wave and Tower of Tribulation. The Monster Wave is the quickest way to earn gold. Battle – we have Arena, Versus, Melee. In versus mode you gain karats.

I say once again that karats are hard to obtain but with them you can upgrade your character. I was very impressed after I managed to gain 1200 karats to buy an outfit. Now I have almost 900 and I’ve played the game a lot.

Graphics are good, various effects can be seen during battles.

As you advance the game gets harder. But it is worth a try.

A part two of this article will be published soon – which will take a deeper view upon the character I’ve chosen.

So, try the game – it is unique and you’ll definitely have a good time playing it.
