Spacetime Studios, the people who brought us titles such as “Pocket Legends”, “Star Legends” and “Dark Legends” have announced a new game coming to iOS, Android and Chrome devices soon. It will be called “Arcane Legends” and seems to be just the Legends game I have been looking for. I prefer more traditional game offerings with choices like Rogues and Sorcerers rather than Archers and Enchantresses. Luckily for me, that’s what this game is going to have!read more

Also very felicitous because these were not details that I shared with ZAGG. Anyway, onward past my impressed excitement and onto the analysis.read more
