Free Game Spotlight: RoShamBo Arena

By: TheBizCliz

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!

Free Game Spotlight: Neverwinter

Dev: Cryptic Studios
Pub: Perfect World
Original Release Date: June 20, 2013
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4

While Neverwinter has been available on the PC for three years, it came to consoles far more recently. With the Xbox One release last year and the PlayStation 4 release just last month, the Dungeons and Dragons MMORPG has blown up in popularity. All of a sudden, everyone was asking me if I play it and highly recommending it when my answer was no.

Well, I have played a little bit of it and, I have to say, it’s on par with hugely popular paid MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV. The best part is: it’s completely free!

Based on lore from the popular tabletop franchise Dungeons and DragonsNeverwinter takes place in the Forgotten Realms. Gamplay pulls from 4th edition D&D rules, which includes the use of dailies when it comes to spell casting and abilities. It may also be important to mention that this game is in no way linked to that awful Neverwinter Nights series from all those years ago.

In Neverwinter, you can be one of eight classes: wizard, cleric, fighter, ranger, paladin, warlock and rogue. You also have 12 races to choose from: Human, Drow, Dwarf, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Hafling, Menzoberranzan Renegade (requires Hero of the North Add-on), Moon Elf (requires Knight of the Feywild Add-on), Sun Elf, Tiefling, Wood Elf and Dragonborn.

The story of the game takes place after the Gauntigrym novel, when the city of Neverwinter is plunged into chaos after the disappearance of the last Lord of Neverwinter. While the main game locations are based on the novels GauntigrymNeverwinter and Charon’s Claw, there is also the option for players to create whole new areas that may or may not conform to the lore. These areas are able to be played by other users, though there is a clear distinction between user-created and original content.

Neverwinter‘s reception in the gaming world has been mostly positive. With scores hovering around 74% positive, it’s most popular on the PlayStation 4.

The game can be found on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is completely free and and an absolute blast to play.
