Posted by Harry Slater on August 16th, 2018


Thursday has slipped up on us once again, and here at 148Apps that means it's time to start the game of the week process all over again. We've picked five of the best games that have come out over the last seven days, and it's up to you which of them leaves with the mobile gaming world's biggest accolade.

There's a pretty mixed bunch of games for you to choose from, with free to play, premium, and everything in between pretty well represented. We've got violence, we've got running, and we've got an evil taxi all waiting to see if they're going to get your vote.

But how do you vote? Well it's easy. You can leave a comment on this post, RT our tweets about the individual games on Twitter, making sure you include the hashtag #148GOW, or you can leave us a comment on Facebook. Whatever way you decide to do it, come back on Tuesday when we'll be announcing which of these five has earned the right to call itself the game of the week.

The best games for iPhone - The definitive 148 Apps list [Updated August 14th]

Posted by Harry Slater on August 14th, 2018

Hi there, and welcome to our ever-increasing list of the very best games for iPhone. We're going to be updating this regularly with new content, so make sure you check back often, because you're not going to want to miss out on even one of the games we're including here. Trust me, they're that good.

You can click the links below to download the games from the App Store, and find out more about them. And if you've got some games you think should be included, feel free to chuck them into the comments section. Hopefully we can get a good bit of debate going!

Which mobile games let you experience life through someone else's eyes?

Posted by Harry Slater on August 10th, 2018

There are plenty of what you might call standard experiences on the App Store. You know the sort of game I'm talking about. A man wanders around hurting people in order to complete some task, quest, or mission. It's the way video games have been for a while now.

But there are other games out there that do things differently, that let you experience the world from a completely different point of view. And it's those games that we're going to be having a look at today.

This is by-no-means a complete or exhaustive list, but we reckon that these games are the best introduction to the kind of empathy and understanding that mobile gaming can offer up. If you've got your own suggestions then, feel free to stick them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. After all, the more we know, the more we grow.

Another Thursday is upon us, which means another stream of new mobile games for us to get excited about. It also means it's time for you to pick which is your favorite new release from what we think are the five best that have come out over the last seven days.

There are plenty of ways to vote. For example, you can leave a comment on this article. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, tweet us your choice using the hashtag #148GOW. And if you're more of a Zucker than a tweeter, you can leave us a comment on our Facebook page telling us which of the games you think should win.

Every game of the week winner will go forward into a final showdown at the end of the year, where you, our wonderful audience, decide on the 148Apps readers' game of the year. So that's pretty awesome. Anyway, on with the choices.

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvE characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 23rd, 2018

Everyone loves a good tier list, but there aren’t any great ones out there for Knights Chronicle. This isn’t just because no one bothered to make one though. It’s actually because heroes in Knights Chronicle may be valuable in one aspect of the game when they aren’t in another.

In an effort to build some semblance of a quality tier list for Knights Chronicle, you’d have to break down top heroes for each aspect of the game as well as sort them by the kind of hero they are, which is exactly what this list (the first of many) sets out to do.

This list of heroes in Knights Chronicle ranks the top three characters of each type purely by how good they are in Advent and Multiplayer Dungeons (also known as PvE). In other words, don’t use this list to build your Arena team. Check out our picks for best PvE heroes below:

5 things you need to know to get started in Pokemon Quest

Posted by Emily Sowden on July 5th, 2018

Pokemon Quest iOS screenshot - A Bellsprout

After Pokemon Quest snuck out on Nintendo Switch, we had to wait a surprisingly short amoung of time before getting it on iOS and Android. I mean, we knew it was coming, but you'd never know if we'd only be waiting a month or six to get our hands on the game.

If you're looking for a full RPG you won't find it here, sorry chaps. This one's a free to play title that's not quite the style of Pokemon you'd recognise. It may have all of the fan-favourites from Red and Blue, but they're – er – blockier, so there are a few new things to learn.

Not to worry, though! Here's a handy ol' guide to walk you through the basics so you can command an epic team and collect all of the delicious, shiny loot.

Harry's biggest disappointments in mobile gaming in 2018 so far

Posted by Harry Slater on July 4th, 2018

We're half way through the year, so here at 148Apps, we're dedicating July to looking back at the best, and worst games that have come out in the first half of the year, and looking forward to some of the delights that await us on the mobile gaming horizon.

First up, we're going to have a look at some of the games that have disappointed us in the first chunk of 2018. It's not that they're bad games, it's just that they didn't live up to the lofty expectations we set for them, for one reason or another.

Don't worry though, we'll be taking a more positive look at the year-so-far in other pieces, so it's not going to be all doom and gloom. And, of course, if you disagree with us on anything here, make sure you let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Is Battlelands Royale better than Fortnite on mobile?

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

What happens when you take the battle royale template and mix it into a more mobile shape? Well, what happens is Battlelands Royale. It's like if Fortnite had a little brother who wanted to copy its elder sibling, and did so in the most adorable way.

You get everything you get in the likes of Fortnite (apart from the building). There's shooting, a drop zone, equipment to discover, and an ever-shrinking playfield upon which to try and slaughter every other player and be crowned the champion.

But does simplifying things make them better? That's the question we're going to ask in this here article - is Battlelands Royale better than Fortnite?

It's been a little over a year since the release of the Nintendo Switch. AAA studios and small indie devs alike have warmly embraced the console, and it’s not hard to see why. There have been some really great games on the Switch over the first twelve months of its life-span, which got us thinking.

And some of those games would be great additions on other mobile devices. So here are a few games out on Switch that should totally be ported to iPhone and iPad. If you’ve got your own suggestions, make sure you chuck them in the comments at the bottom of the article. With that out of the way, let’s get on with it.
