Idle Skies, from Crimson Pine games, gives you the chance to learn about the history of aviation, as you advance your flying machines from the most basic paper airplane through to the space age.

The top 5 console games we'd love to see on iPhone and iPad

Posted by Elizabeth Eagen-Jones on November 11th, 2018

With so many games releasing across multiple platforms, it's easier than ever to find a mobile version of something you love. But there's still plenty of games that exist on consoles that we'd love to see make their way to mobile. So we thought we'd write a list that contains the very best of them. And here it is.

It's fair to say that this is a pretty contentious subject, (just look at the reaction to Diablo coming to mobile in the shape of Diablo Immortal) and we imagine that you're going to have your own suggestions to throw into the mix. We'd love that, and there's a comment section at the bottom of the page waiting for you to vent your spleen in rage or agreement.

If you want to check out some of the other amazing lists we've written, click here and you'll be able to do just that. And now, without anymore fanfare, here's five games we wish we could keep in our pockets.

BRIX! Block Blast is a puzzler that puts a twist on the Tetris formula

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 10th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

BRIX! Block Blast is the latest in a long line of mobile puzzlers, but Genera Games’ new iOS and Android offering is by no means more of the same.

The game is a unique mash-up of old and new. It takes the classic drop elements from Tetris and combines them with the colour-matching gameplay found in contemporary mobile puzzle titles, and the result is a system the developer has dubbed ‘drop & match’.

With this mechanic on their side, players can combine blocks, rack up extra points and earn boosters that will blast them through to the next level.

Why does everyone hate mobile games?

Posted by Harry Slater on November 7th, 2018

It's a really interesting question, and one that as players of mobile games, we need to ask ourselves from time to time - why does everyone hate us? It's something we've seen more of in recent years as traditionally AAA developers and publishers have started to realise that mobile gaming is actually a goldmine. The most recent, and one of the most vehement, backlashes has been against Blizzard after it announced Diablo Immortal.

But why does this keep happening? What is it about a game making the leap from PC and console to mobile that makes so many people feel the need to rage into the abyss of the internet? Is it a reflection of something underlying so-called gaming culture, or a problem that's inherent in every walk of life?

These are the questions that we're going to try and answer in this article. If you've got your own theories as to why this keeps happening, then do please let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the article. Before that though, let's get our grey matter working.

At first glance it might look like just another top-down shooter, but we think there's more than enough going on here to make it worth your while. What sort of thing are we talking about? Well you're going to have to keep reading to find out.

The Reaction to Diablo: Immortal Makes No Sense

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 5th, 2018

At BlizzcCon this year, Blizzard unveiled Diablo: Immortal for the first time and it got a huge reaction. It just wasn’t exactly the kind of reaction they were expecting. This new game was met with loads of negative attention, starting with mentions of silence in the crowd at BlizzcCon, and followed by pushback in their Q&A session, massive dislikes on the YouTube trailer for the game, and Reddit posts aplenty suggesting that marketing around the game is already a full-blown conspiracy.

I watched the full trailer for Diablo: Immortal, and I’ve got to say: This reaction is kind of confusing. The game looks… fine? I don’t know. There’s just not a whole lot of information about the game in general, and definitely not enough to feel like I could have strong feelings about it at all, whether they be positive or negative.

With that in mind, I decided to try and investigate all the reasons why people are so down on Diablo: Immortal, and I can’t really find one that makes sense. Below are the reasons I see most often cited for all this Diablo: Immortal hate, along with some thoughts on why these just feel like excuses to get mad about something online.

There's a lot of information flying about, as you'd expect, so we thought it was important to make sure you had all the facts in one handy place. Thus, we have created this list of the top 6 most important things you need to know about Diablo Immortal.

If you've got more questions about the game, feel free to ask them in the comments at the bottom of the section. Oh, and click here to read our list of the best games like Diablo for iPhone you can play right now.
