Okay, so we realise we usually do this on a Thursday, but it's been a crazy sort of a week here at 148Apps, and we wanted to make sure that we really had found the five best games for you to choose a game of the week from. We reckon we've done that now, so that's pretty cool.

We've included download links so you can grab the games from the App Store, and explained why we think the games deserve their places on this shortlist. How do you pick a winner? Well it couldn't be easier. All you need to do is post a comment at the bottom of the article letting us know your choice. Or tweet us (or leave us a comment on Facebook) using the hashtag #148GOW with the name of your choice.

Obviously if you think we've missed anything from the list, you can let us know that in the comments as well. Now though, without any more typing, here are the games.

The top 3 iPhone and iPad games you should be excited for this week

Posted by Harry Slater on November 26th, 2018

It's been a funny few days here at 148Apps, thanks mainly to Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and all of the sales that have been happening on the App Store because of them. Hopefully though normal-ish service is going to resume this week. And since we missed it last Friday, we thought we'd let you know about the exciting upcoming games you're going to be playing this week.

We've included links so you can pre-order the games on the App Store where we've got them. That way you'll get a notification when the game is live and be able to grab it quicker than most. If you consider yourself an App Store sleuth then be sure to let us know of any games you've spotted that are heading our way in the next seven days.

Click here and you can check out all of the other awesome lists we've been creating lately. But before you do that, let's find out what games you're going to be playing by the time Thursday rolls around.

How will World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Blizzard's other games work for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on November 19th, 2018

You might have heard that Blizzard is bringing Diablo to mobile with Diablo Ultimate. There's been plenty of controversy surrounding that decision, and it's meant that a really important piece of information has been glossed over a little. Namely that Blizzard is bringing all of its IP to mobile in the foreseeable future.

Obviously that kicked our brains into gear here at 148App's palatial research unit. We got to thinking about how Blizzard's massive franchises could make it onto the App Store. And then we wrote down those thoughts. What you're looking at now is the culmination of that endeavour.

If you've got your own suggestions as to how Blizzard could squish its game down to pocket-sized, then be sure to let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article. First though, let's find out what we thought about the obstacles and challenges that are waiting for Blizzard.

The end of the week has rolled around again, which means it's time for us to look forward to the games you're going to be playing over the next seven days. We've got the return of a mobile gaming legend next week, as well as a couple of other really interesting looking experiences.

And if that wasn't enough we've stuck pre-order links in so you can have the game ready to download the second it lands on the App Store. We're good like that. So good that, if you think we've missed anything and you tell us in the comments, we almost certainly won't collapse in a ball and start weeping.

If you click here you can check out all of the other lists we've made over the recent months - there's some real gems in there even if we do say so ourselves. Now though, let's check our crystal balls and see the bangers you're going to be playing in the not-too-distant future.

Posted by Harry Slater on November 5th, 2018

You might not have heard, but over the weekend at BlizzCon 2018, Blizzard revealed that its classic dungeon-crawling franchise Diablo is set to hit mobile sometime in the not-too-distant future. That's a pretty big reveal, and as you might be able to imagine a lot of people have a lot of opinions about the game coming to iPhone.

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.
