What would a psycho slasher do when happy campers are nearby? In this brooding, comic ode to classic 80s horror, Skullface – the main antagonist excited about slaughtering sprees – needs to solve his way through the camps to eliminate his victims. No one is safe, not if Skullface has your skills to help him with his evil plans!

There are 11 gut-wrenching videotapes you can find yourself in, with over a hundred puzzle variants that are never the same. To move Skullface around the camps, you must swipe tactically towards the direction you want him to go to. He can only move past open spaces; thus, you will have to think of a fast way to get him around all sorts of obstacles. Advanced levels will feature tricky traps like land mines and SWAT teams, so always be on your guard!

▲ Campers in certain levels will move away and cower in corners, making it harder for you to complete the puzzles. Take this as an opportunity to refine your solving skills.

▲ If you wish to play without the bloody effects, then go for Puzzle Game. If you want to splurge on ultimate mayhem, then choose Rampage.

▲ "Gorepacks" can give you more solving advantage in future levels.

The power-hungry Emblian Empire is out to take total control of all worlds, and it is up to the brave Order of Heroes from the Askran Kingdom to put an end to their evil deeds. Team up with dozens of favorites from across the “Fire Emblem” series – as well as a few new faces – and call upon your skills of strategy and critical thinking in order to succeed!

In battle, tap and drag a character to any of the blue highlighted squares to move. If a hero’s equipped weapon is in range of an opponent, tap and drag them onto the enemy until the double sword icon appears to unleash an attack. The turn ends once all of the party have performed an action, whereupon the opposing party makes their move. End the battle by eliminating all adversaries!

▲ Tap “Danger Area” for hints of where not to move to, and “End Turn” to finish a turn early.

▲ After a certain number of turns are completed, special skills are automatically activated that dish out extra damage!

▲ Equipped characters appear on the home screen, who can be chatted to with a tap. Tapping the owl takes you to the mail screen, where you can collect gifts.

From the main menu, tap into “Battle” to view the different modes available, including the narrative-driven “Story Maps,” practice focused “Training Tower,” and online multiplayer “Arena Duels.” Battles across all modes earn you rewards and experience that can be used to level up characters and unlock new skills.

Call upon new heroes by tapping into “Summon” and using Orbs to unseal allies, from the charismatic “Odin” to the brooding “Raigh.” Each character comes with their own strengths and weaknesses, and can be organized into teams by tapping into the “Allies” screen. Mix and match heroes into up to five separate parties to help balance their abilities, and work to save the Askran Kingdom once and for all!
