Last week I read the words I'd been hoping for and got so excited I almost cried: Stardew Valley is coming to mobile on October 24th. While, my colleagues know of my love for the game I think my reasons behind it have always been a bit of a mystery to them.

The wonderful thing is that everyone's reasons for loving it are different, though some of you lovely gamers reading might experience the same sort of deal.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 15th, 2018

Mad Rocket: Fog of War is the latest title from pblisher Four Thirty Three, and it’s a game that will have you rethinking your approach to strategic war games. In this new base-building card battler, you’ll be invading bases enshrouded in thick fog. How will you adapt your strategy to work around these dangerous conditions?

Carefully lay out a strategy for infiltrating your enemy’s base, while taking your limited visibility into account. You’ll have to predict your opponent’s strategy, selecting units from your battle deck that can survive any manner of attack. Send out units that can withstand aerial attacks, assaults from larger buildings, and many more. Creativity is key here, so get out there and experiment with the tools you have at your disposal. As your skills develop, you’ll be able to join the Seasonal Rankings to earn rewards and medals.
