Humble Bundle stopped doing its bi-weekly mobile bundle a while back and moved to a more sporadic "whenever we feel like it" schedule. Well, they apparently feel like it today. There's a bundle of six Kemco JRPGs on sale right now, with more on the way.
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a new JRPG from Kemco, a historically accurate turn-based strategy game, a new Zynga title that isn't terrible, a pixelated falling game, and a free take on Worms. Without further ado:
RPG Tears Revolude
Kemco is a prolific publisher of Japanese-style RPGs, and a big help for fans of the genre who are tired of paying Square $15 a pop for 20-year-old games.
While Japanese RPGs aren't every gamer's favored time-sink, fans of the genre are constantly on the lookout for new franchises and titles to dive into. Kemco has been a steady source of older JRPGs on Android, many of them obscure PSX ports that have been translated and reworked with touch controls. The reception to most of these games has been very positive generally, so if you're at all interested in trying them out, today's the day to do it - Kemco's entire library of games are just a dollar each through April 29th.
Kemco Games, the team behind a slew of popular role-playing games for Android, has introduced the English version of Aeon Avenger today, bringing to market an impressively polished time-travelling RPG. Like Kemco's other RPGs, Aeon Avenger features gameplay reminiscent of old Final Fantasy adventures, and delivers a "story of revenge through time and space."
Aeon's story follows a young man named Lake, whose rural home town is attacked by "the man in black," who also murdered Lake's parents. On his quest for revenge, Lake stumbles into a time-travelling adventure with a young woman named Rean. Aeon challenges players to battle monsters, solve problems, and traverse through environments in the past, present, and future while seeking revenge for the man in black.
