Pocket Legends Adventures Hero

Pocket Legends Adventures is a casual action RPG adventure that is now open for beta testers. Spacetime Studios, the publisher of the casual multiplayer game, says it's not a sequel to Pocket Legends but pays casual homage to the same whimsical sense of humor and universe of the successor.

"Seven years ago we released the world's first 3D mobile MMO, Pocket Legends." said Gary Gattis, CEO. "Today we are thrilled to announce Pocket Legends Adventures, a charming homage with all new mechanics in a familiar setting."

Social will be at the forefront of this game allowing you to connect with friends, chat with them, and endless humorous customization of characters. It features an innovative real-time combat system, unique skills-based advancement, and Co-Op multiplayer in the mobile gaming universe!

Differences between the two games are:

  • Pocket Legends Adventures has an extensive single player campaign
  • You only have one character per account (but you can change Race)
  • There is no trading/ merching
  • There is no PvP (yet)

Similarities between the two games are:

Top Common Slots Games Misconceptions

For shy of a decade, I once was the chief editor of a mobile app review company. The leading app review company for Google's Android platform might I add. However, initially I would be hesitant to cover casino slots games because there were many casino slots games misconceptions. I want to take some time to list them and clarify any misconstruction.

Slots Games Misconceptions:

Myth: Confused with gambling

I'll list the biggest elephant in the room first... many immediately assume all casino slots games are real money gambling games. This is not true. You play these games with virtual money. Additionally, each maker discloses on their app descriptions such as, "success within this slot game app does not imply future success at real money gambling." And although they do feature a monetization aspect in which you can pay for more coins with real money, players you not win real jackpots, they do not win real money and cannot cash out winnings like real gambling.

We probably were conditioned initially with this misapprehension as Apple heavily regulates real money casino games in their app store. Regulation stems from locale- as some countries (such as the U.S.) do not allow unregulated online and mobile apps. Therefore, it is important that players differentiate between virtual money games versus real money games. The latter are few and far listed in the app directories.

Myth: Their are no good games

A fair share of the ilk came across my desk as an editor. I've seen many mediocre and have seen some really good ones. The batch from developer Super Lucky Casino caught my eye as they contained many themes similar to those flashy styles you would see at a Vegas casino. They offer plenty of bonuses to keep you coming back. Furthermore, you can play their games offline without WiFi plus they have mini games to break up the monotony of slot pulling.

Slots Games Misconceptions - Here's a Sample Game Hot Vegas Slot Machines

Here's one I found that was very popular with over a million downloads already and rated 4.7 out of 5 stars in app stores called Hot Vegas Slot Machines. It's available for phones and tablets on both iOS and Android.

Myth: I have to pay to play

As mentioned you can pay real money to purchase more coins within these games should you choose. For the majority of players, however, the daily free coins or bonus coin allowance is enough to play for free. Some games offer free coins after a certain amount of time or for completing various milestones. Something to take advantage of for the savvy player.

In conclusion

Still need more convincing? Here's a video review of how I evaluate the features of a typical casino slots game. I hope that my observations from an editor's perspective have cleared up some slots games misconceptions for you. There are plenty of great choices in the app stores. Give one a try today!
