Video games have certainly come a long way and this hilarious RPG demonstrates just how far things have changed. It presents the classic story of a dragon knight entrusted to save his world, but goes on to tell his tale using different RPG types across the decades!

It starts with a 2D side-scroller before a treasure chest instantly puts you in a larger, free-moving map. Discover more treasure chests in the area and pick up other items that evolve the game. From “Turn-Based Battles” to “3D Sprites,” the whole world keeps on transforming as the story progresses.

One moment, you could be dodging traps and bosses like old-school adventure games and in the next moment, you are facing off a squad of enemies alongside a party of friends! It even makes parody references to certain RPGs along the way! It is both an entertaining an educational experience for all video game history buffs.

▲ The story begins in the memorable style of sprite-based action adventure.

▲ Open special treasure chests to transform the game and incorporate new graphics and gameplay!

The beloved world of Pokémon and the world in which we currently stand have finally merged into one. When you step out the front door, keep an eye out for these adorable creatures in more than just tall grass.

This groundbreaking augmented reality app integrates the phone’s GPS to let loose Pokémon into the wilds of your town, city, country, and across the globe!

As you go about your day, Pikachu, Horsea, and even the rare Mewtwo may pop out on the GPS map. Luckily the gracious Professor Willow has supplied you with your first poké balls, so start slinging them. If you run out, head over to a "Pokéstop" and restock. Set out on your destiny, to be a REAL Pokémon Master!

▲ While strolling down your daily route, wild Pokémon will appear on your current, real world location!

▲ Gaze through the phone's camera and marvel as the world of Pokémon comes to life.

▲ Going beyond simply capturing Pokémon, you can also train them with "Stardust" and "Candy".

There is no Team Rocket here. Instead, there are three other awesome teams to choose from. Will you create a poké-alliance with friends on “Team Valor”, with coworkers on “Team Mystic”, or zap into “Team Instinct” with your family? Conquer the Gym located at your actual public library or firehouse (public facilities) with your team's combined powered-up Pokémon. "Pokéstops" will have potions and revives to help you achieve this feat.

As you continue your quest to “catch’em all”, make sure to give your Pokémon “Candy” and “Stardust” to increase their strength and evolve them! The extraordinary world of Pokémon has finally been made into a reality, which you can enjoy on your next quest out of the house. Just remember, if a Jigglypuff starts singing to you, do NOT fall asleep!

A dark entity has cast a deadly shadow across the DC Universe, throwing the worlds into utter turmoil. The only option is to form teams of unlikely allies of heroes and villains – from Batman and the Joker to Superman and Lex Luthor – and destroy the vicious Manhunters and nefarious Nekron once and for all!

From the home screen, tap ‘Story Campaign’ to follow each stage of the storyline. Tap on ‘Battle’ to enter the battle preparation screen, where you can select up to four heroes to take into combat each turn. On the battle screen, the currently selected hero is shown with a blue ring underneath them. Tap on an enemy to attack, or tap the ‘Auto’ option on the top left to toggle the auto battle option on or off to speed up the gameplay.

▲ Each character and enemy has an affinity, shown in the icon above them. Refer to the diagram on the upper-right to see the correlations of strengths and weaknesses between affinities.

▲ Battle across familiar backdrops from the DC Universe as cinematic cutscenes take your battles to new heights!

▲ Collect ‘Hero Fragments’ as you play to gradually increase a hero to 5-star ‘Legendary Status’, which changes their appearance and unlocks new abilities.

After each victory, you can earn a variety of rewards, from experience points to new playable characters. Rewarded heroes can be unlocked by tapping into ‘Heroes’ from the home screen and tapping on their portrait. From this screen, owned heroes can also be leveled up, as well as have new super powers unlocked and upgraded.

Looking to duke it out against friends? Unlock the ‘Wraith Arena’ to access PVP gameplay, which pits your teams against others online. Earn rewards and rise through the ranks of 14 unique Leagues in a fight to the top! You can also take part in daily or weekly missions to unlock rewards to help level up your heroes to Legendary status, and take back the DC Universe once and for all!
