The best mobile "forever games"

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 14th, 2018

The idea of the “forever game” is a compelling one in general, but especially so on mobile. Being able to fire up the same game over and over again on your phone or tablet and be treated to new experiences and things to do each time is close to—if not the pinnacle—of mobile gaming. So, without further ado, see below for some of the best forever games on mobile:


Motorsport Manager Mobile 2

What is it?

This management game puts you in control of a Formula 1-style racing franchise. You manage almost everything involved in this process, including the drivers you hire, the sponsorship deals you take, the R&D of your cars, and even when drivers should take a pit stop mid-race.

What makes it a forever game?

The beauty of Motorsport Manager Mobile 2 is that it contains just enough variables to ensure the racing landscape is always changing. Even if you’re many years deep into the game’s career mode, you have to contend with different drivers, unexpected financial predicaments, and, of course, all of the other race teams that are trying to beat you.

Who’s it for?

Anyone who like management sims. Even if you aren’t into racing, Motorsport Manager 2 has a great set of mechanics under its hood that almost guarantees you’ll be playing it for a long time.

It's E3 season, which means it's the time of year that mobile games get basically ignored in favor of super-budget AAA titles and people screaming out reactions to things they're going to be disappointed in when they actually come out in a few months time.

That said, there have been a few interesting looking iOS games announced over the past couple of days, so we thought it was a good idea to round them up to give you a flavor of what you might be playing in the next few months on your phones. Or, in some cases, what you'll probably be ignoring.

What games are there like Rage 2 for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on May 16th, 2018

Well, the Rage 2 trailer came out. It's pretty interesting, if you're in to post apocalyptic destruction and games that look an awful lot like Borderlands. But, y'know, shinier. But since that sort of non-portable game really isn't our bag here at 148Apps, we thought it'd make sense to make a list of games that are a bit like Rage 2 that we actually do care about.

One of them was a pretty easy choice. Can you guess which one it was? Even if you can't, make sure you give the list a read, and if you think we've missed something out, let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article. Or if you just want to tell us we've wasted our time and should be doing better. Say something.
