Popular MMO Strategy game Lords Mobile is honoured with "Android Excellence Game” award in recognition of successful 2017

Posted by 148Apps Staff on January 18th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Delve into the crowded halls of the Play Store and you’ll find mobile fantasy strategy MMOs-a-plenty. One that’s kicking off the new year in style however is IGG’s Lords Mobile, which has beaten out the fierce competition to receive Google Play’s highly-coveted “Android Excellence” award - a scheme that recognises some of the best experiences and top performing games available on the platform.

The game – which first hit digital store shelves in 2016 – lets players run wild, collecting their own cast of kooky combatants to better build up their own army before fighting with others online. Visuals are rendered fully in 3D, with Lords Mobile’s colourful and cartoony art-style going some way to entice Android users to experience the game’s fleshed-out strategic gameplay.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Blocky Racing has zoomed onto the App Store and Google Play this week, bringing with it plenty of classic kart racing shenanigans that will take you straight back to your childhood. If you’ve found yourself hooked on games like Mario Kart or Crash Team Racing, do yourself a favor and give Blocky Racing a go.

Blocky Racing is a kart racer in its purest form. Collect power ups to unlock weapons like missiles, or shields to give yourself some cover. Stir up as much trouble as possible to scoot yourself across the finish line in first place. Anything goes here, so don’t be afraid to pull out all of the stops. Just be careful—carts can lose blocks when they take damage, and will ultimately fall apart if they lose too many.

He’s moved on from the speedy blue hero since then, launching his own company based in Tokyo – Prope Games. Legend of Coin is the developer’s latest project, and is totally different from the platformer he’s known for. It fuses the fun of coin pushers with the addictive quality of monster collecting.

Gameplay in Legend of Coin revolves around a coin pusher covered with silver pennies. Throw more coins on the shelf to nudge the ones closest off and into your wallet. These can then be lobbed back in, or used to purchase bonuses from the shop.

Fight fireballs with more fireballs in the safety of VR with Elemental Combat out now

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 29th, 2017

Elemental Combat is a multiplayer game that challenges you to blast away your foes with fire and various other elements. In VR though, not in real life.

You cast these moves with your real hands though, thanks to motion controls. Think The Last Airbender but far cooler and you're along the right lines.

Each move is based on one of the four different elements of air, earth, water, and fire - each of which has a different strength and weakness. Fire is very offensive, but lacks defence for example.

Selecting your favourite element and developing a playstyle is a huge part of the fun here. By the time you're an expert you'll really feel like your style is unique.

You'll do all of this in two different modes. There's a single player that teaches you the basics before you take them into battle with you in multiplayer.

That serves like an FPS, with you performing moves on your friends to defeat them so you have a higher score by the end.

Elemental Combat took the top prize as Best VR Game at the PGC XR Helsinki Indie Competition, and even ended up as a runner up best XR Game.

So stop wasting time and go and grab Elemental Combat right now on Steam. It's even 10% off right now to celebrate the launch.

5 reasons Kingdoms of Heckfire is your next kingdom builder obsession

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 25th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Kingdoms of Heckfire is a brand new kingdom battler by A Thinking Ape, and it's one that aims to make the genre accessible for new players.

But that doesn't mean it's easier or shallower. No, the developer has worked hard to streamline the experience and make it a little more social so you're never alone.

Aside from that, this is the genre as you know and love it. Build stuff, battle enemies, and work with your friends to complete larger goals.

If you're still not convinced, here are five reasons why you really should check it out.

You can play with your friends and they'll actually want to

Lots of games have promised social play with your friends, and then you've gone and pestered them to play and they've just laughed and shook their heads.

Sound familiar? Well, we can safely say that that won't happen with Kingdoms of Heckfire.

The majority of times a friend doesn't want to play with you is because they just don't get the genre like you do. As we mentioned earlier, A Thinking Ape has worked hard to ensure that this one is easy to pick up and play.

So basically, if you can get your friends to shove this on their phone, the game will take care of the rest.

It's got a sense of humour

That's right. Kingdoms of Heckfire is chock full of amusing characters and dialogue that's bound to have you spitting your tea all over your phone. Just keep a tissue handy.

The humour also makes Kingdoms of Heckfire a much friendlier experience overall. That means that anyone can play it really, from the young ones all the way up to your grandparents.

If you like laughing - and don't we all - then Kingdoms of Heckfire is the game for you.

There are loads of dragons, and they're cute

Everyone loves dragons, don't they? Isn't that like the number one reason Game of Thrones is so popular right now? I'd say so.

Guess what else has dragons? Kingdoms of Heckfire! The best part is, they're not scary either. They're adorable dragons that you'd have no problem bringing home to meet your mum.

This alone is a major selling point in Kingdoms of Heckfire. If you haven't downloaded it already, then you probably have no soul.

There's real depth to it

When we said Kingdoms of Heckfire was accessible, we didn't mean lacking in depth. There's an awful lot of that here.

The PvP, for example, can involve literally thousands of players, and require weeks of planning along with your friends. Well, if you want to have a chance of winning that is.

There's a very real feeling that you can have an impact on the world around you in Kingdoms of Heckfire, and that's pretty special.

Clans, clans, and more clans!

There's a huge focus on clan play here, which is all the more reason to bring your friends along for the ride as we mentioned earlier.

You can get some lovely clan gifts just for playing together, and even send rewards to each other to cheer everyone up.

At this point, you're probably well convinced, so head on over to the App Store or Google Play to grab Kingdoms of Heckfire right now.
