Among all the heroes of Midgard the warriors are the strongest and toughest, featuring two different play styles; one handed sword and shield for quick attacks and high defense, & two handed weapons for explosive amounts of damage.

Hunter:

To offset their small frames, Hunters specialized in long-range attacks, especially preemptive and moving attacks. They may be small, but their guns pack a powerful punch.

Wizard:

Masters of magic and sorcery, these heroes have the elements and dark magic at their fingertips. Whether using Ice to slow enemies, lightening to cause massive direct damage, fire to burn groups at a time, or dark magic to curse and weaken, the Wizard is ready for a variety of circumstances.

Battle against friends or party up with them to take down some of the vilest monsters in your quest for immortality.

Apple don’t allow Gift in mobile games

In-game money will not be given as gift among users because of Apple’s regulation. Therefore, users could not send Heart, which is sort of in-game money among KAKAO games, to other because Apple think it is a product to purchase and cannot be given as gift.

Future mobile games need to eliminate ‘Gift’ feature before applying while existing games in App store are needed to eliminate ASAP. After developers receive a new guideline from Apple, they are in worry because ‘Gift’ is not only a product, but also it is a part of social feature in games.

Heart was the essential feature among KAKAO mobile games to make revenue.

Korean Finally Could Purchase Games Through iTunes

Game Category at Apple App Store has been opened at 7:00AM on the 2nd of November in Korea. It took 2 years since iPhone3GS was introduced in Korea for the first time.

Korean iOS gamers needed to have another Apple account in the U.S. or HongKong to purchase iOS games like Angry Birds for the past 2 years. Korean iOS game developers needed to release their games through other countries’ App store or release them at Entertainment category as a temporary expedient.

The reason is that Korean government took too long to make related laws. By the results of mobile games was excluded from Shutdown System recently and drawing the conclusion how to rate mobile games on App stores, finally Game Category is opened. Game Category for Android market will be opened until the end of November as well.

The typical Korean mobile game developers such as Com2uS and Gamevil welcome to have Game Category finally. They expect that Korean mobile game market will be more energized.

EAPPLE?

Apple is a talk of the week; first with Apple chip and then a rumor about possible acquisition of EA.

Looks like it’s started with a post at thestreet.com (a financial blog) citing “Adami noted that there is chatter that?Apple (AAPL Quote) is eyeing?Electronic Arts(ERTS Quote) as a takeover target.”

Then gaming sites like 1up and Gamasutra picked up the story and went with it.

With or without acquisition, it’d be interesting to see what would Apple pull up with ex-MS executive Richard Teversham.
