Yslandia may be a game that you’ve never heard of, but fear no longer, I come to bring tidings and good news. Yslandia will be available in the US App Store by October 1st, around a month after we saw the release on the Canadian App Store.
The game features over 400 types of items, 9 different races divided among 18 classes, 3 lands full of quests and PvPs, around 200 quests, and much, much more. Yslandia features a high color cartoon design, and from the video, it looks to be quite similar to that of Defender Chronicles.
On top of all the MMO features, Yslandia will feature OpenFeint achievements, along with the ability to fight with people in random dungeons.
October 1st, please arrive soon.
We’ll have our review up soon after the release, and hope to see you on the playing field. But before that, feast your eyes upon this short gameplay video.
Pocket Legends is becoming more and more like a real MMORPG. With the 1.2 update, Pocket Legends has added player vs. player matches, trading between individuals, and new elixirs to temporarily boost the stats of your character. This is definitely one of the largest updates so far, and it brings Pocket Legends to the next level.
Along with PvP and secure trading, Pocket Legends is now a universal app. This means that there is one app for both the iPhone and iPad clients, and you won’t need to search for different applications for both devices. This is definitely much more convenient for everyone across the board, and it’s a move that was necessary.
I haven’t had a chance to play the PvP yet, but here’s a developer video of the PvP in action. For more information about the update, be sure to check out their website.
I’ll admit it right here and right now: the iPad games haven’t wowed me one bit. They really haven’t. The apps seem to be the ones that have taken the spotlight, and the games are definitely slacking; most of them are just running at a higher resolution with little or no changes to the gameplay. There are some games like Mirror’s Edge that have got me saying,”Cool”, but again, nothing has wowed me until now.
And this game may just be what separates iPad gaming from iPhone gaming. Let’s face this fact: MMOs don’t work on the iPhone. Text-based are ok, but I’m talking about fully 3D MMOs, fighting with a party, leveling up your stats, and all the glory that comes with a MMORPG found on the Internet.
The MMORPGs I’ve tried on the iPhone just don’t work; I don’t want to play an MMO on my iPhone. I’m going to say this again: MMOs don’t work on the iPhone.
And I say this again: the iPad may be the answer to MMOs on Apple’s devices. Pocket Legends for iPad definitely proves that the iPad can handle much higher graphics and animations, and the screenshots alone had me wowing and my eyes popping.
But it seems like iPhone versions are coming for Pocket Legends, so we know that when you’re outside you can still level up your character. But when it comes to sitting down at home, I would definitely prefer the iPad over the iPhone. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this before, but MMOs (real ones) may just be the reason iPad gaming is better than the iPhone.
Pocket Legends for iPad is priced at free, so for those planning on waking up early for one tomorrow, this is definitely one you should check out. Like right now.
