Final Fantasy Record Keeper

Currently playing this game on my iphone and it has been keeping me busy, especially, before falling asleep… hehe~
No no… not in a bad way… >_<
Just one of those stuff that I would do without being at my computer.

Pewdiepie introduced this game in his vlog on his trip to Japan, sponsored by Square Enix and DeNA.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper is a “free to play” social smartphone game where players participate in memorable battles from the Final Fantasy series, with a cash shop “play to win” scheme.

If you’re a casual mobile-gamer like me, there’s no necessity to spend anything on it, unless, you have some cash to spare.

The English version came out last month, March, but, the game itself has been around in the Japanese version since September 2014.

FlyFF All Stars – Basics

Let’s look at Teams

From the main screen, you’ll be able to view your Team via the button at the top right.

You’ll see all the heroes that you’ve owned.

Let’s take a look at one hero.

Hero Level

*Hero Quest: Reach level 30/50

  • A hero’s first max level is 30
  • But, you’re allowed to level your hero up to 50
  • Heroes gain additional stats as they level

Upgrading:
Heroes can be upgraded by sacrificing other heroes.

*Hero Quest: Succeed in hero upgrade
*Daily Quest: Try Hero Upgrade once

  • Higher rarity heroes give additional chance => showing up in the Success Rate %
  • The higher the rarity, the more expensive it is to upgrade

Fusion:

*Hero Quest: Try the Hero Fusion

2 heroes can be fused/merged to get the next tier hero.

  • For example, by fusing two 5-stars heroes, you will get one 6-stars hero
  • Only do so when you have extra heroes to spare

But, these 2 heroes have to be

  1. Both have to be level 30 AND
  2. Both have to be fully upgraded (All the stars have turned yellow)

Make sure that the hero is not in any of your “Team”.
You’re only able to select the Hero after disbanding them from all Teams

Once selected, fuse them.

  • The success rate is 100%
  • Next tier hero is random

Congrats on a new Hero!

Info:
Shows the information of the chosen hero.

  • You can view the level progression, how much damage, defence, hp and type of damage/defence the hero has.

Sell:

  • It is advisable to move forward straight to 4-stars heroes, as soon as you’re able to
  • Thus, if your 1-3-stars heroes are in abundance and has reach the limit of your heroes stash, you can sell these off
  • The selling price depends on the rarity (and how far you’ve upgraded) the hero
  • The hero has to leave the main and arena teams before you can sell it

Active Skill:
Choose between 4 active skills.

  • You can upgrade each skill using Gold every time you level up
  • The active skill can be changed by paying via Diamonds
  • By default, active skills match with that of the heroes, so, you actually do not need to change them unless you’ve invested in on particular skill or based on your preference over one skill

Upgrading your Active Skills

In the main screen, click Active Skill

  • The skill levels are account wide, meaning: if your Heroic Might is level 17, all your Heroes will be using level 17 Heroic Might whether they are 2 stars or 7 stars
  • Upgrading the skill uses up Gold and the higher the level, the more expensive it is
  • Once the level hits the same as your own level, you’ll need to use Diamonds instead

Forge Gears:
You get to roll your gear using Crystals.

*Hero Quest: Forge the Equipments

  • The rarer your hero, the more Crystals are needed
  • If you like one or two of the gear items, you can lock it and re-roll, but, by doing so, you’ll be paying in gold as well. If you do not lock, all unlocked items will be re-rolled

Disband: Removes the hero from the team

Re-Order: Exchanging slot with another hero. Reshuffle your team members as you please.

Let’s look at Friends

List tab
This is where all your friends are located.

If you’ll notice, there are 3 types of heart-shapes.

  • Full heart: The friendship status is mutual.
    This means that both of you have accepted and acknowledged that you’re friends with each other.

  • Left-filled heart: You’ve added the other person.

  • Right-filled heart: The person has added you.

Summon a Comrade Hero

Click on your friend’s name and select Summon.

*Daily Quest: Summon a Comrade Hero 5 times

  • You can use your friend’s Hero to help you level while leveling in a Dungeon or while in a Time Zone.
  • Each person has a limit on the number of units s/he can deploy, thus at times, you might not be able to summon your friend’s hero

Deploy your Hero

Click on your friend’s name and select Deploy.

*Daily Quest: Deploy a Comrade Hero 5 times

  • The friendship needs to be mutual in order to deploy your hero.

PvP with a friend

  • You can receive them via your Mail Box
  • The Mail Box icon is on the top right corner of the screen

What are Social Points for?

*Daily Quest: Try Hero Summon Once

  • Purchase Crystals, Wings and Hero Gacha via the Store

Let’s look at the Maps

Region 1: Flaris

*Hero Quest: Flaris 100% cleared!

Region 2: Flying Castle

*Hero Quest: Flying Castle 100% cleared!

Region 3: Bahara Desert

*Hero Quest: Bahara Desert 100% cleared!

Region 4: Saint Dock

*Hero Quest: Saint Dock 100% cleared!

Region 5: San Press

*Hero Quest: San Press 100% cleared!

Dungeons

From a region (whichever region you choose), click on the yellow circle (whichever level you choose).

  • As long as you’ve cleared a dungeon, you can move forward to the next
  • You can use Boost Items, each costing 500 Gold, to assist you with the dungeon
  • You can select a Comrade Hero, if there is a few in the list, for the dungeon you’re planning to do
    The Comrade Hero can help you in tackling tough stages
  • Entering a dungeon will use up one wing

Dungeon Master

Dungeon Master is awarded to the person who has the shortest dungeon completion time.
Thus, other players can replace your spot as the dungeon master, if they beat your total completion time.

  • AoE
    Use characters that have multiple AoE’s that have good radius.
    Collect a few mobs and AoE them at once
  • Attack Damage Boost
    Use the “10% Power Increase” via the Boost Items before you start the dungeon. It will cost you 500 Gold for every dungeon run though
  • Familiarise with the Dungeon
    Try a dungeon a few times. Once you get used to where the mobs’ spawning points are, it’ll be easier for you to aim where to walk to or when to use your special skills (especially AoE)
  • One-shot KO
    If it takes more than a few or even one hit to kill a mob, chances are someone else will be able to
    Crits are crucial as well
  • Ranged Heroes
    They shoot from afar, thus, not needing to walk more
  • Running speed
    Forge your items to get speed-boosting gears
    Use the “10% Movement Speed Increase” via the Boost Items before you start the dungeon. It will cost you 500 Gold for every dungeon run though

There are two conditions to achieve the Dungeon Master title:

  • Clear a dungeon the fastest.
  • Satisfy the hero tier constraints.
    Flaris : Use heroes in tier 3 or less.
    Flying Castle : Use heroes in tier 4 or less.
    Bahara Desert : Use heroes in tier 5 or less.
    Saint Dock : Use heroes in tier 6 or less.
    San Press : Use heroes in tier 7 or less.

One person cannot be a dungeon master at two dungeons at once.
Your previous position as a Dungeon Master will be revoked if you’re the Dungeon Master of a newer dungeon.

Dungeon Reward

Upon completion of a dungeon, you can either select a random reward or a fixed reward

  • Unless, you get a time zone ticket or high rarity hero as the fixed reward, you can select a random reward
  • But, there is a chance of getting nothing or being worse off when choosing a random reward

Timed Zone Ticket > High Rarity Hero > Crystal > Gold > Low Rarity Hero > Nothing

Arena

*Daily Quest: Fight in Arena 5 times

  • Arena is where you fight against other players’ heroes.
  • Each match consists of three rounds where whoever wins twice first takes the match.
  • Each Arena has its own rank board and relevant rewards are given to the mighty fighters.
  • There are five Arenas in total which are allocated for each region.
  • Each Arena has the same hero tier level constraints as the Dungeon Master System.
  • The ranking data updates at every noon.

From the Main screen, select Adventure

Select the Map / Arena that you wish to enter

You can see the overall statistics of the particular arena you’re in.

  • Arena Ranking resets at 6pm, every Sunday
  • Shows the number of tickets that you have (it will regen)
  • Your rank = number of Diamonds you will win

Select the 3 Heros you’d like to join the arena

  • For Flaris Arena, only 3* or lower tiered Heros can participate
    For Flying Castle Arena, only 4* or lower tiered Heros can participate
    etc…
  • You’ll be able to see which Heros you’re allowed to place in that Arena

Before the Arena starts, you’re allowed to see what Heros your opponents have chosen

  • You can change the order of your Heros depending on their order
  • Unless you’re in a lower tier Arena (use all high damage / critical Hero), in a higher level tier Arena
    Healer Opponent vs Your Healer
    Tank Opponent vs Your Critical Damage
    Near Range Opponent vs Your Long Range
    If you have a fully-upgraded high level Near Ranged Hero, go for any combo
  • If your opponent is using all long/near range damage dealers, you’re free to use your strongest damage dealers as the first two = ends faster

As you progress, you’ll get:

  • 3 Social Point
  • Arena Rating based on the level of your opponent

Time Zone

Time Zone is where you can loot Gold, Crystals and Treasure Keys.
A lot of them!

  • You do not gain levels from playing in a Time Zone
  • There are 3 different levels for each Time Zone: Easy, Normal and Hard
  • The higher the level, the better the drops
  • Use Boost Items if you’d like: would recommend the Power Increase and Movement Speed
    For faster kills
  • Although it does not allow you to choose which Comrade Hero (ones you summoned from your friend), it allows you to use all the Heros listed down
  • You can open treasure keys to obtain even more Gold and Crystals

  • The number of tickets are shown at the bottom. Make sure to use them, else, it will stay in your MailBox for 2 days if there are more than the tickets shown
  • Tickets are randomly rewarded in the regular dungeons

    Thus, feel free to play in all the Arenas at the same time!
    Max level and upgrade 3 of your best combo Hero and keep it purely for pvp.
    At the end of the week, you might get a handful of diamonds depending on your ranks in all the Arenas you have participated in.

  • Level a hero to 30 and get 5 Diamonds

Will update as I go on.
Apologise in advance, if there are errors… still a newbie… but, hope this helps~

Currently free: Guess Who? (Premium Edition)

Have you ever played this before?
‘Cause it was one of my fave board game.

You’d need to play with one other person to guess who your opponent’s card is.
They have many versions and kinds of it.

 

So, when I saw that the premium version is free on my mobile, I downloaded it.
Yes, they do have a free version as well, but, I’ve never tried it before though.

Here’s the download link for iOS.

It has a few options and choices.
Whether you’d prefer to guess what the game/bot has chosen.
Or you choose a person and the game/bot asks you a series of random questions.
Or a time attack if you’re into stress.. lol.. well, just to see how awesome you are.
Then, start training with another player or even join tournaments.

You start off as a beginner in tutorial and work your way through to unlock the myriad of difficulties.
So, you get a gist of how the game goes if you’re a first timer or if you’re refreshing your mind on how it’s played out.

True to its original version, you get to ask a lists of questions, one by one, turning down the ones that do not suit the answer.

I’m not sure how long it’d be free, so, well, get it while it is. 😛

The Mansion

I LOVE this game!
Just downloaded it this afternoon on my ipad.

The graphics are alright.
Love the music and the storyline is pretty intriguing.

It’s about a toymaker who became famous and rich for his talent of making children happy with the toys that he makes.
Until one day, he disappears together with the mansion that he stays in.
Years later, a girl named Anne stayed nearby the empty land.
Out of nowhere, the mansion appears on a random night.
She then goes on an adventure to find out the truth about the toymaker.
To do so, she has to get to the center of the mansion.
In short, she has to go through a series of puzzles of moving rooms to get to the next room.

 

It reminded me of my fave game of a few years back, called Psychoban.
I love those puzzles!!

 

 

If you love solving puzzles like these, give “The Mansion” a go.
It’s free!
They do sell in-game items to make your life easier on getting to the next room, for example, getting infinite tries on one “map”.
But, come on… work that brain baby… work it!!!
Although, I’d prefer Psychoban’s mind-blowing mind exercises.
But who knows, reaching the last few stages in “The Mansion” might be worth it.

Lili

 

LILI

Released over a week ago, Lili is built on Unreal Engine and is one of those beautifully designed graphical games that deserves attention.
Maybe I’m a little biased as I’m a huge fan of awesome pretty graphics.
Tee hee~

Created by (indie games) developers from BitMonster.

It’s an adventure game where you play as the protagonist named Lili on a mysterious island of Geos.
Her main mission is to collect exotic flora, working on her vegi-magical degree, but soon helps the citizens (constructs) who have been bullied by their creators, the Spirits.
The story line isn’t too deep, but it’s just as entertaining, with a pinch of humour.





Making friends.


Exploring.
See the white flower on the left?
These flowers can be exchanged with the NPC to purchase items like a pair of boots with a boost for running speed, potions, etc.
Or even exchange for keys that you can open locked doors with, sometimes, as part of a quest, while others as a bonus for you.

For example, for this quest, after finding the house, it’s locked and you need a key to enter.
You’ll need to exchange a couple of flowers for a key!

Map showing…
Red = spirits
Blue = constructs / NPC

There are also treasures waiting for to be found.

A simple maneuvering game.
Swipes to turn.. tap once to walk.. tap again to stop.. double tap to run.
Your mission would comprise of mainly catching the spirits, mount them and then pick flowers off their backs!
Especially that last (red) exotic flower.








You can then view all the Spirits that you have gone head to head with.

It gets tougher to obtain the flowers as you go along.
Spirits that throw bombs at you, wear armor, runs faster, etc.
That’s when you visit the trainer and upgrade your skills.

Game too easy?
Romp it up from Normal mode to Hardcore mode.

I’d rate this as 3.5/5
Sure, I love the graphics and music.
Mechanically without flaw.
But, it gets boring after a while.
It gets a little… repetitive for an adventure game.
It actually sucks up a lot of my battery after playing for an hour straight too!
