Review: Grand Kingdom

Grand Kingdom is the successor to Grand Knight’s History and looks even better with ex Vanillaware people on the title as well as Spike Chunsoft and Vanillaware did work on the previous title but never made it to the west sadly.

In Grand Kingdom you get a lot of choices of characters throughout the game like knight and archer or my pick dragon mage but sadly dragon mage takes up two character slots so you have to decide on power or a bigger unit. The maximum is five I believe but I use three which is knight, archer and the dragon mage. Doing attacks can take some time getting used to if you want to combo with certain characters while others are really easy.

Review: Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward really hit with audiences on DS/3DS and the PS Vita with the gripping story and twist and turns. The novel approach mixed with a fair amount of gameplay was great with the novel genre and each game got better and better as the sequels came which brings me to Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma.

The graphics, the way of story telling and overall style dramatically changed most parts for the better but not a perfect change, but more on that later. In Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma, nine participants are trapped in an underground bomb shelter called Dcom and everyone has a reason to be there though awaken in their cell. The participants  are split into teams of three and located in three different divisions of the shelter. To seek a way out, they need to find six passwords but each time a new password is revealed, one person will die, requiring a minimum of six deaths before they can escape.

Review: Adventures of Mana

Square Enix has finally come back to the PS Vita with the surprise release of the Final Fantasy Adventure Remake Adventures of Mana. Back in February, the game landed on mobile and I have to say on the PS Vita it is quite fun and brings back the old school charm.

In Adventures of Mana, you play as Sumo who starts in an arena battling for survival while later your friend dies. Pretty soon after finding a way out you get attacked by the Dark Lord and so begins your journey.

Review: Spy Chameleon – RGB Agent

Wanted to revisit Gex: Enter The Gecko? Too bad but if you like spy games you are in better shape. Spy Chameleon – RGB Agent brings quick levels and smart arcade puzzle gameplay to the PS Vita and it’s not too bad.
