Free Game Spotlight: RoShamBo Arena

Roshambo Arena is a free-to-play, arena fighting game with a lot of awesome features. It is a basic striking game, based off the classic rock, paper, scissors. Released in July by Blam! Games, this is their 25th game creation since the company was founded in 2009. You can find their games on all platforms. One such game is A Gnome’s Home: The Great Crystal Crusade.

In this game, you start off choosing your character name and gender. You start in a tutorial to show you the basic concept of the game. Each round, you battle out boxing style, but instead of just boxing, you battle over classic rock, paper, scissors. The first person to KO their opponent wins the round. However, you also have perks that can allow you to have a more powerful attack, block and a ton more. Each round you earn teeth, which are used to buy stuff for your character, including clothing and helmets. You also earn XP for every win, which allows you to rank up your attack, health, and defense to make you the ultimate boxing champ.

In Roshambo Arena, you have the choice to play through the story or go online and try your rock, paper, scissor skills against the world. The online ranking system starts at bronze and you work your way up to gold. If you choose just to play the story, you rank your way up through the city to become the best.

Some other modes include tournaments where you can enter at a certain cost, battle through the tournament and win double the amount put in. Another mode I am personally looking forward to is groups, which is coming soon. This will allow you to party up with your friends to make the game a little more entertaining. Since it is a free-to-play game, you should have no issue getting your friends to download and join in once the mode is added.

Roshambo Arena can be downloaded through the Steam market, and is a super small download at 229MB. I believe that anyone of all ages can enjoy this game and is very quick to learn because the skill level isn’t high. For the little bit of time I have put into this game, I genuinely enjoyed it and I hope you do too!

The free-to-play strategy mobile game, Star Trek Timelines, centers around the idea that a strange anomaly has caused different timelines and realities of Star Trek to merge together, obviously causing conflicts that the player must resolve while they explore the galaxy.

The player resolves these conflicts by constructing an away team with the relevant skills and traits to solve the problem in different ways. You can choose characters that will try to resolve conflict diplomatically or you can choose characters that use weapons to gain control over a situation. The game is full of choices which align you towards different characters and groups as you agree or disagree with them. The player gets to level up these characters as they complete missions and collect new crew members with different specialties as the game goes on. The game is made up of these away missions, space battles, and faction missions. All in all, there is a lot of game play to be had in Star Trek Timelines.

Star Trek Timelines is visually impressive with beautiful cutscenes and an interactive, colorful, and detailed galaxy map. One of the most immediate things I remarked on the game was just how well produced it was. Every time I enter the game, I’m greeted by the treat that is John de Lancie’s voice acting as the character Q. There is so much polish on the production and interface of the game that it is understandable why I keep hearing about it.

I do feel however that though the game is well produced in many areas that the mechanics are not as rewarding as the external aspects of the game. And though the game can be a lot of fun, there are some downsides. Read the rest of this entry
