Gone Home review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 13th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: HOME AWAY FROM HOME
If having a mobile version of Gone Home is the only thing that will get you to play this game, grab it. Otherwise, you might want to play it elsewhere.

7 Billion Humans review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 12th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK
For a game that is essentially a bunch of coding puzzles, 7 Billion Humans has a surprising amount of charm and personality.


Rebel Inc. review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 11th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: STABILIZATION STRATEGY
Rebel Inc. is a fun spin on Plague Inc. despite the fact it can feel occasionally repetitive.

Chuchel review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 10th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: ANIMATED SHORT
Chuchel is a cute little adventure game type thing.


Twinfold review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 5th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: THREES, BUT THRILLING
This game borrows heavily from Sirvo Studios’s Threes! but the result is a game that feels completely unique and brilliant.

Super Fowlst review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 28th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: ROGUE(F)LITE
Super Fowlst incorporates Spelunky into its mishmash of influences. This would be incredible if not for the game's kind of slow start.


A Mortician's Tale review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 26th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: A BRIEF ENCOUNTER WITH DEATH
A Mortician's Tale is not your typical video game experience, and that's a good thing.

Kingdom Rush Vengeance review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 22nd, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: VENGEANCE AND VILLAINY
Kingdom Rush is back, and badder than ever.

It's Thursday, which means it's time for us to take a look at the very best games that are now available on the App Store. We've trawled the new releases and picked what we think are the top games for iPhone and iPad that came out over the last seven days. We've got shooters, puzzlers, a platformer that might make you punch strangers, and a classic tale of exploration and family ties.

Now, without any further ado, let's get to our pick of the 5 best iPhone and iPad games that you should be playing this week.

148Apps year end round-up: These are the top 5 games that came out in May 2018

Posted by Harry Slater on December 12th, 2018

We've reached the fifth month of the year in our round-up of all of the top games for iPhone and iPad that came out in 2018. If you've missed the other entries in this massive list, don't you worry, because we're going to give you links to them all in the next paragraph.

148Apps year end round-up: These are the top 5 games that came out in April 2018

Posted by Harry Slater on December 11th, 2018

Oh hi there, and welcome to the fourth part of our series about the very best iPhone and iPad games that came out in 2018. We've made it to April, which is when Fortnite came out. So, yeah, Fortnite is at top of this part of the list. Not really a surprise, but we thought we'd get it out of the way before you clicked anything anyway.

Just because Fortnite is the marquee name here, that doesn't mean you should ignore the other games. We've got vandalism, MOBA shooters, and one of the most gruesome licensed games we've seen in a long, long time. Basically April, like most months in mobile gaming, gave us some real gems.

You can click here to read about the best games of January 2018, here to read about the best games of February 2018, and here for the best games of March. And make sure you come back tomorrow, because we'll be rounding up the best iPhone and iPad games that came out in May 2018.

148Apps year end round-up: These are the top 5 games that came out in March 2018

Posted by Harry Slater on December 10th, 2018

It's Monday, and our round-up of the best games of 2018 has landed on March. There were some pretty amazing developments in the third month of the year, mainly thanks to the launch of PUBG and the start of the Fortnite beta (technically Fortnite didn't release around the world until April, which is why we've not included it in this chunk of our recap.

Even without that new lynchpin of the mobile gaming community though, March was pretty exceptional. It was tough cutting the list down to just five, but we think we might have managed. If you disagree though, do make sure that you let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Click here and you can check out the top five games from January 2018, and if you click here you'll be able to read what we think are the five best games from February. Check back later in the week when our round-up is going to hit April. Sick.

Twinfold guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on December 7th, 2018

Twinfold may look like a cheap Threes! clone at first glance, but it's so much more than that. It's actually a rather deep roguelite with a really satisfying difficulty curve and almost endless replayability.

Since the game's depth does take some digging to understand, your first few games of Twinfold might not go so well. Check out these tips to help you improve your game faster.

Munchkin.io ends 2018 in style with a new class introduction and Google award

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 7th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

While it can sometimes seem like we are drowning in a sea of battle royale games, few struggle to actually deliver the kind of fun and frantic experience you’d expect from a refined entry in the genre. Well step aside from those other games because Munchkin.io continues to go from strength to strength, by adding a new character class and also being named by Google as one of the best indie games of the year and being globally featured in the Google Play Store starting from today.

To get anyone unfamiliar with Meerkatgames’ take of real-time battle royale genre, Munchkin.io is thought of as the lighter alternative to Fortnite and PUBG. The game prides itself on being lighter and more accessible than most other you’ll see, featuring an eclectic cast of character classes that can level up, learn new skills, and complete unique quests for rewards.

Choose a side in Rift of Raigard, the new base building RTS game now on Kickstarter

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 5th, 2018

If you’re an RTS player that’s constantly underwhelmed by most genre entries on mobile, or sick of putting up with stingy F2P models and cheaters, Rift of Raigard is the base building game for you. Developed by a team of creators who are equally annoyed, the game is now in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign which could benefit from your backing. Here’s what’s in store if you do.

Set in a fantasy world that’s being ravaged by a war between three factions, players will need to pick a side – whether it’s the Folklords, Gremlochs, or Coalites – and test their strategic chops to bring balance back to a land devastated by chaos. Rift of Raigard features a wholly original, interwoven story that will see you venture through multiple exotic landscapes in any one of the game’s three explorable continents.

Rift of Raigard will encourage you to personalize your central hero, ground troops, and base thanks to the large number of customisation options. All three facets mentioned can be personalised with a slew of in-game skins, meaning you’ll be spurred to protect your armaments in the battle to hold back enemies strategically in real-time. The best Rift of Raigard players will find themselves vying for a space at the top of the leader board.

Should the game reach its funding goal, Rift of Raigard will also include a dedicated guild system that lets players team up, sponsored events and leagues, alongside what the developer Dun Rite Games is teasing as “game modes never before seen in this genre.”

The good news is that you can also be part of this adventure. Be sure to visit the game’s Kickstarter page to show your support, for a mobile-first RTS game that wants to be fun and accessible for all while clamping down on cheaters.

Posted by Harry Slater on December 3rd, 2018

We're heading towards the end of the year, which can only mean it's time to start thinking about what games we're going to remember from the last 12 months. And we're going to break it down into a series of top 5s, one for each month. We're starting with January 2018, because it'd be weird to start anywhere else really.

We'll be doing the other months in due time, but since January was the start of the year, that's where we're going to begin. We've included download links for you, as well as links to our reviews where applicable. So you're not just going to be able to purchase the games from this page, you're going to be able to make an informed purchase, which is even better.

If you think we've missed any games that came out in January, then do let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the article. And make sure you keep checking back to 148Apps regularly so you're not missing out on our recap of the last 12 months in mobile gaming.

Langrisser Mobile: 5 things it does better than Fire Emblem Heroes

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 30th, 2018

Across the generations, the Langrisser series has done battle with Fire Emblem for control of the tactical RPG throne, and this war is about to spill over into the mobile arena.

Almost two years on from the debut of Fire Emblem Heroes on iOS and Android, developer Zlongame has taken the fight to the Nintendo franchise with the release of Langrisser Mobile in closed beta following a successful soft launch in China during the summer.

The game marks the mobile debut of this tactical RPG titan and it’s pulled out all of the stops in a bid to trump its rival on touchscreen devices. Here are five ways it succeeds…
