We've already posted our Reigns: Her Majesty [$2.99] review, and chances are you wouldn't be looking up cheat guides like these if you didn't also agree, at least on some level, that the sequel to Reigns [$2.99] is incredible. The addition of the item system and the zodiac calendar has, however, added several layers of complication that makes getting all the endings particularly difficult- Especially getting the "good" ending. Needless to say, this guide is absolutely chock-full of spoilers. I really, really recommend playing Her Majesty through to completion to get at least one of the endings before diving in, but, hey, it's a free country. You do you...

You’ve fished, caught, built, and befriended your way through days and days of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp [Free]. Now you’re looking at how to finish strong. Here’s what you’ll be thinking about as you enter the final stages of Nintendo’s latest mobile offering. This is the third part of our series of Pocket Camp guide. If you missed out on the previous ones, start with the beginner's guide, and move on to the daily mid-game grind guide before wading into this end-game guide...




While there have been loads of Rules of Survival guides that have popped up as the game has soared to the top of the iTunes charts, I've really yet to see any of them that offer any kind of actual useful tips that you couldn't just figure out yourself by playing the game for five minutes, or worse, just reading the iTunes description. As of this writing, I've got 264 hours of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds under my belt, and it doesn't seem like Rules of Survival [Free] keeps track of cumulative play time, but let's just say I've been eating my fair share of chicken dinners as practically everything learned by playing PUBG is completely applicable in Rules of Survival, which I suppose just goes to show what a good job NetEase did at cloning the Steam smash hit...

This guide is here to help illuminate all the daily tasks, goals, and reminders so you can get to that end-game with as few bumps as possible.

'Animal Crossing Pocket Camp' Beginner's Guide: Free Leaf Tickets, Getting K.K. Slider, Choosing a Personal Style and More

Animal Crossing Pocket Camp [Free] brings Nintendo’s gentle charmer to the mobile screen. Anyone familiar with previous entries in the series will feel right at home (if slightly disappointed). For players looking to jump right in but also have some basics on hand, this guide is to give you the best start possible along with what to expect and some things to consider as you play on...

'South Park: Phone Destroyer' Guide: How to Win Without Spending Real Money

South Park: Phone Destroyer hits that perfect balance between offering everything you love about a specific IP with approachable, enjoyable gameplay in a freemium setting. Of course, being freemium, Phone Destroyer certainly has its fair share of pay-to-win potentials and skill/pay walls. However, it’s also one of the more forgiving games in terms of being able to continually play the game. With the following tips, players will be able to maximize their time and skill and extend that play time even further...

When the original Into the Dead came out I absolutely fell in love with it because the joy of running through a horde of zombies and using your limited amount of ammo to shoot the zombies in the head was just so satisfying. PikPok brought, even more, satisfaction to the series with Into the Dead 2 [Free]. With the volume of guns, exceptional graphics, the carnage of zombies and even the astonishing story mode. One thing I found myself to be a bit stuck with is the crafting of new weapons in the game and how to get better guns. There's a ton of weapons in the game but it seems to be very troublesome to craft weapons without the use of spending some real money. I've played a good deal of time with Into the Dead 2 already and I believe that I have some tips and tricks that may be able to help you craft some new weaponry to deal with those zombies in the field...

Clash Royale's [Free]Touchdown, the recently added new mode, is really fun to play and offers a very different tactical challenge than the normal mode. If you've been having trouble figuring out how best to play it and how to get those Crowns, read on for some very useful tips from the Clash Royale Arena website. First, let's clarify those rules. In this mode you have to get troops into the opponent's endzone. Each time one troop gets into the endzone, you get a crown, and whoever gets to 3 crowns first wins. The first 2 minutes of the match are x1 Elixir and the rest x2 Elixir. And some cards cannot be placed past the middle of the field because they would pretty much break the game...

Gameloft has been known for their attempts to bring popular "console-quality" games to the App Store, such as their personal iterations of the Grand Theft Auto series or the Call of Duty series. Gameloft's Modern Combat series has emulated the Call of Duty series throughout all 5 of its past installments and it has steadily gained traction/popularity on the App Store. It appears that the series will continue to thrive with the recent release of Modern Combat Versus [Free] (MCVS). MCVS is Gameloft's first foray into the "hero shooter" genre. However, there are many free-to-play gimmicks/shenanigans within Modern Combat Versus that can make things a bit difficult for the uninformed and casual F2P player. This guide will help you progress in MCVS as smoothly as possible (without spending a penny) by providing information about currency management, team composition, Agent suggestions, and various gameplay tips...

Apple announced a new feature to iOS 10 which was Replaykit Live. Which allows you to stream iOS games straight from your iPhone/iPad if the developer integrates Replaykit in their app. While iOS 11 is coming along and there's a nice hidden feature that even Apple themselves didn't show off; that's ReplayKit 2. Replaykit 2 allows for streaming straight from your iPhone/iPad's home screen instead of having to wait for the developer of your favorite game to add Replaykit, Apple has helped you and integrated it straight into the control center; it's as easy as a tap of a button. Though, it can be very confusing for people wanting to stream their favorite games on iOS and knowing what the advantage of Replaykit in a game vs. in the control center and many other things to streaming on your iOS device and other things like choosing a game, your audio/video setup, and much more...

Alright so many of you might file this under the, "Yeah, of course you can do this" category, the number of folks I've seen sharing this tip today leads me to believe that the whole add web sites to your home screen thing has become lost knowledge in the modern days of the App Store. Back in the day before the App Store existed, Apple's answers to folks looking to have third party apps on their phone was having people build web apps that operated inside of a browser, then saving them as bookmarklets to the home screen. Thinking back on it, it was a little absurd how excited we were to add things like basic tip calculators to the home screen of our first generation iPhones, but, hey, different times and all...

IFTTT.com is a powerful utility for automating all sorts of small things. The site's acronym stands for, "If This, Then That," which sort of tells you everything you need to know about using IFTTT. You set a trigger from any number of a massive array of things IFTTT can look for which cover everything from the weather outside to what your WiFi enabled washer or dryer are up to then trigger alerts that range from blinking your WiFi enabled lightbulbs to... a ridiculous amount of other stuff. It's really sort of amazing just how much IFTTT can connect to, but for our uses, we're going to stick to the RSS functionality to create a simple alert applet that'll send you push notifications whenever we post a new story...

There are quite a few multiplayer first-person shooter games for mobile gamers to experience and (possibly) enjoy. It's a genre that has consistently evolved over time in order to adapt to the limitations of touch screen controls. Despite those limitations, these games continue to be a mainstay on my mobile devices. One of my favorite first-person shooters on the App Store is Bullet Force [Free] by Lucas Wilde. Lucas Wilde also recently released his newest game, Forward Assault [Free], which I had the pleasure of testing before its release. Forward Assault may look the same as Bullet Force (aesthetically) but it is an entirely different beast. This guide will hopefully help you ease into this competitive first-person shooter by increasing your knowledge of the game, as well as increasing your skill as a player...

Miniclip's War Wings [Free] has been out on the App Store for a couple weeks now and I've had a chance to play it for a bit. There have been two really challenging things for me while I've played War Wings, those two things are Combat and Research. Those can be very confusing for the casual pilot. Other games like World of Tanks: Blitz [Free] use the whole 'Research and Combat' method that I'm a pretty big fan of. Though, that method does take a lot of learning about the vehicles and lots of time playing the game...

After its shocking reveal with a tournament stream, it took only one night for the Brawl Stars soft launch to happen. Debuting initially in Canada, this means that it's relatively easy to get access to Supercell's top-down multiplayer online shooter. But if you need the specifics on how to do so, well, we have a guide that will get you up and running with the game in a jiffy. While getting soft launched games in a country you don't reside in isn't necessarily the most convenient thing, it's not that difficult to do, you just have to know where you're looking and what to do. Here's how to register an iTunes account in Canada for the Brawl Stars soft launch...

As you probably know by now, Clash of Clans [Free] Builder Base update is live, and it's brought plenty of changes to the game. We've already written about what the new update brings to the game, but if you want to get a leg up on the competition, check out a new update guide as well as various tips and tricks, both of them posted on reddit this morning. Andrakisjl's tips and tricks should help you get some more wins and more loot. The first thing to remember is that winning in the new Versus Battle mode gets you resources, but losing costs nothing. So, don't be too afraid to go battle since your resources are safe. The second tip is you must purchase certain buildings before being allowed to upgrade your builder's hall, so don't expect to have a defenseless base...

'Injustice 2' Guide - Tips on Energy Usage and Upgrading Heroes when Offline

When news about an Injustice: Gods Among Us sequel for consoles leaked last summer, it left us with a couple of questions about the mobile version. Would Warner Bros. and NetherRealm also make a sequel for mobile, or would they just continue updating the existing Injustice [Free] game which had already received massive amounts of new content over the past 4 years and was one of the most popular mobile games around? This past Valentine's Day we got our answer as Injustice 2 for mobile soft-launched in the Philippines App Store, and this week the game has finally launched worldwide. While I'm not sure of the strategy of abandoning an existing successful game with a huge player base in favor of a brand new app, it does at least afford the series a fresh start, and the engine running the existing Injustice game was arguably getting long in the tooth. While Injustice 2 retains the core stripped-down fighting mechanics of its predecessor, it also makes some major fundamental changes to the entire formula. With that, we've put together a short guide in an effort to help you get the most out of this newest entry in the mobile Injustice series...

'Modern Combat Versus' Discord Server and How to Play With VPN and Download Soft Launch Version

Gameloft's Modern Combat Versus soft launched, but only in the Philippines and as a region-locked game. If you downloaded the soft launch version and are playing it right now, you should join our Discord server, where we've opened up #modern_combat_versus, a channel where you can discuss the game with other players. Need to get a game going, discuss tactics, or just want to bond over some cool stuff? This is the place for you! It's worth noting that with the debut of the soft launch, you not only need to have access to the game, but you also need a VPN to play the game since it is region-locked. We're going to explain how to use a VPN to play the game right away, and how to download it if you don't know how to download soft launch games...

I’m a huge fan of Nimblebit’s new game Bit City [Free], which is a cool take on the standard clicker game. Despite the relative simplicity of games in the genre to begin with, there are still plenty of common sense tips, as well as some game specific strategy that’s worth discussing. So, if you’re interested in maximizing your earning potential in the game, check out the following tips and guidance. Take note that some of the tips below may seem obvious, but they are worth repeating just in case for newcomers to the genre...

Get 3,700 Dust and 10 Gold Cards for Free by Taking Advantage of the 'Hearthstone' Year of the Mammoth Dust Refund

We already posted about all the changes coming to Hearthstone [Free] this year as the Year of the Mammoth card rotation hits with the release of the next card set, and one tiny detail in the avalanche of information that caused a few of us to raise our eyebrows was the full-cost dust refunds Blizzard is doing for gold Classic cards that are getting shifted to the new "Hall of Fame." The idea is cards that instead of nerfing cards that are a little too powerful, or are restricting design space, they're just shifting them over to Wild and giving their full dust value back to players. We reached out to Blizzard to clarify exactly how this all works, and it turns out if you've got the dust right now to craft a bunch of gold cards, you can effectively get them for "free."..
