It’s another Wednesday full of new iOS games, which have been making their way across the globe all day and have finally arrived in the US App Store. Probably the biggest release of the week is Hail to the King: Deathbat, for a couple of reasons. One is simply because it looks like a neat hack ‘n slash dungeon crawler, but it’s also associated with a big-name band (Avenged Sevenfold) and is doing quite the opposite of most licensed mobile games in that it unapologetically targets hardcore gamers rather than trying to appeal to a more mainstream, casual crowd. Should be interesting. Also, the popular card game Sentinels of the Multiverse has arrived on the iPad, and early signs seem to point that it’s a winning digital conversion. As always, let us know what you’re getting in the comments below!

Hail to the King: Deathbat
Deathbat is a 3rd person, overhead dungeon crawler action RPG in the vein of The Legend of Zelda, Gauntlet Legends, and Diablo. The game’s story is based on the mythical origin of the Deathbat, Avenged Sevenfold’s logo and mascot. The game’s design is not for the faint of heart as players will need to traverse massive levels, combat skillful undead, and best unforgiving bosses. The epic story follows Andronikos, the resurrected King of the Underworld and the embodiment of the Deathbat, who is tasked with reclaiming the lands of Haides from the despotic Dark Andronikos. Along the way you’ll mix and match brutal melee combat with projectile magic attacks battling through beautifully designed and hellish landscapes inspired by the band’s iconic discography and artwork. Interact with characters along the way to solve puzzles and unlock the mysteries of Moros Island.

A game that looks beautiful but may just bring out the ugliness in you!
Its rotating circles are unlike anything you’ve seen before and it’s your job to make sure they don’t crash –which sounds easy but gets progressively challenging.
Hysperical is really easy to grasp right away, but oh-so-hard to master – have fun along the way!
