Teen Titans Go Figure! Now Available on Mobile

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Teen Titans Go Figure! is the new mobile game based on the Teen Titans Go! cartoon, and it’s available now on iOS and Android mobile devices and tablets ($3.99). It’s a sequel to the well-received mobile game Teeny Titans and inspired by the upcoming feature film, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, by Warner Bros. Animation, arriving July 27.

Teen Titans Go Figure! lets you play as Robin, Raven, Cyborg, Starfire or Beast Boy as they collect heroes and battle villains across Metropolis, Gotham City, Arkham Asylum, and other famous sites in the DC Universe. It features nearly 100 3D stylized figures to collect, battle with, and level up, including Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. With that many heroes there’s also some not-so-famous names like, uh, Space Cabbie and Condiment King.

The battle system is 3v3, and you’ll need to know which heroes to switch in and out at the right time, not unlike Pokémon, and very similar to Teeny Titans.

In app purchases exist to provide random goody bags of loot (yep, loot boxes), as well as customizable options for your figures, like Repaint Tokens.

Teen Titans Go Figure! is developed and published by Cartoon Network (licensed by Warner Bros.) and rated E10+. Teen Titans Go! to the Movies is the first feature film based on the rebooted Teen Titans Go! cartoon series. It stars Will Arnett and Kristen Bell, and arrives in theaters July 27. It’s rated PG.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Bring Your Pet to School in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Harry Potter fans may disagree about some things, but everybody loves pets. Especially Hagrid. Jam City and Portkey Games have announced the first major update to mobile RPG Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. The update lets players take a pet to the magical school of witchcraft and wizardry.

Players can own up to four pets based on the most popular pets at Hogwarts: Owl, Rat, Cat, and Toad. You can have up to one of each kind. Your pets will hang out in your dormitory, and you can equip one at a time to join you on your quests around the school. Equipped pets provide an energy boost when they’re awoken.

Hogwarts Mystery released earlier this year on iOS and Android. It’s set in the 1980s, about a decade or so before the events of the first Harry Potter book (or movie).

Players can customize their own budding witch or wizard and join one of the four houses. Students attend classes, make friends (and enemies), brew potions, and cast spells. Familiar faces are in the faculty, including several actors and actresses from the movies reprising their roles such as Michael Gambon (Dumbledore) and Dame Maggie Smith (McGonagall).

While its production values are impressive, the game has been heavily criticized for a particularly egregious energy mechanic, taking a long time to do any task unless you pony up real cash.

The pets update is available now. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery can be downloaded for free on the App and Google stores. It’s rated 12+ for Intense Fantasy Violence and Mild Horror Themes.
