You're going to die when you play it, and you're going to die a lot. Honestly, just getting away from the first level can feel like a monumental task.<br><br>But that's what we're here for. We've put together a bunch of hints and tricks to ensure that you're as ready to face the terrors under the earth as you can be. You're still going to die, but you might not die as much. Maybe.<br><br><strong>Run away</strong><br><br>For your first few forays into the dungeons, it's best to cut your losses early. When you've bagged a couple of chests, get out of there. That won't just give you loot, it'll give you some XP that'll eventually let you change your deck of cards.<br><br>It might seem cowardly, but if you keep dying you're going to run out of gold super quick. And that means you won't be able to use potions or health kits, and quite frankly those are the most important things in the game. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Lost+in+the+Dungeon/feature.asp?c=76999'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Lost+in+the+Dungeon/feature.asp?c=76999 Wed, 21 Mar 2018 14:00:00 GMT If PUBG Mobile is full of bots that might be a good thing <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-hrmuidsj_29496754_10155576150613175_1558952869363712000_o_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="If PUBG Mobile is full of bots that might be a good thing" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> This will be a hard-to-swallow pill for some if it turns out to be true, but Tencent might be making your introduction to <a href="/r/iPhone/PlayerUnknown%27s+Battlegrounds/feature.asp?c=76939">PUBG Mobile</a> a little easier than it's letting on. <br><br>After only soft launching in Canada last week, PUBG Mobile's been quickly popping up in a variety of areas including <a href="/r/iPhone/PlayerUnknown%27s+Battlegrounds/news.asp?c=76990">the US</a> and <a href="/r/iPhone/PlayerUnknown%27s+Battlegrounds/news.asp?c=76995">Europe</a>. This might've been a snap decision after Fortnite proved its worth already on iOS, but it's good news all around. <br><br>It looks like a lot of people have been tucking into delicious chicken dinners recently. Not just people - newbies.

Instead there was a lot of people dancing about and drinking things. It was not like the parties I am used to, and it went on very late! I did not get much sleep as a result!<br><br>Yesterday was quite busy, as Bandai Namco directed me onto a bus and drove me to a nightclub with some other friendly people to look at a heap of their games. We even saw a trailer for a new Dragon Ball Super movie, but you can't tap movies without getting some funny looks, which is a shame.<br><br>Most of <a href="/r/Android/Dragon+Ball+Legends/news.asp?c=77006">my time was spent on Dragon Ball Legends</a>, which is absolutely brilliant and I was instantly amazing at. I didn't lose a single game! Until one of the Bandai Namco staff came over and coached my opponent on how to play it, and then I lost, which I think is bad and wrong. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Game+Developers%27+Conference/feature.asp?c=77008'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Game+Developers%27+Conference/feature.asp?c=77008 Wed, 21 Mar 2018 12:58:37 GMT 82 games currently in soft launch on iOS and Android <img src="http://images.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/imgthumbs/na-jzwog/capture.jpg" width="200" alt="82 games currently in soft launch on iOS and Android" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> We're super fortunate to see such an abundance of gorgeous games released per week, but it's about time Pocket Gamer showed soft launched games a little love in list form.

Will Wright, the creator of SimCity, The Sims, and Spore, is on his way back to mobile with a new title in-hand. <br><br>During a presentation at GDC yesterday, Wright revealed that his game development company, Gallium Artists, is working on Proxi, a simulation game built by Unity software where you'll be able to build worlds based on your personal memories. That sounds trippy, but stay with us. <br><br>As well as announcing their plans, Gallium Artists revealed a contest, or rather, an interesting job advertisement.

If you're in the UK/Europe, it's time to get downloading. <br><br>As we mentioned <a href="/r/iPhone/PlayerUnknown%27s+Battlegrounds/news.asp?c=76990">earlier today</a>, PUBG Mobile trickled out from Canada to the United States, and now it's gone a little bit further afield. There are a few countries that have yet to see it on their stores, but the game's pretty much out worldwide by now. <br><br>It's been an interesting few months watching it launch in China and tiptoe into Canada, but according to <a href="https://twitter.com/killercow/status/976055825918767104">Killercow</a> the current European version is still a few steps behind the Chinese one (0.4.0). This means it's missing a few new features and fixes, but give it some time to catch up.  <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/PlayerUnknown%27s+Battlegrounds/news.asp?c=76995'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/PlayerUnknown%27s+Battlegrounds/news.asp?c=76995 Tue, 20 Mar 2018 11:49:03 GMT
