Every Friday here at 148Apps we like to give you a glimpse into the future. And we do that by grabbing our crystal ball and finding out what awesome mobile games you're going to be playing on your iPhone or iPad next week.

It's looking like there's going to be something for everyone again next week, which is always good. Plus there'll be the usual surprises sneaking up on us. We can't afford to pick up a crystal ball that deals with surprises though, so until we can you're just going to have to deal with what we've got here.

If you're interested in the games that came out this week, you can click here to check out which five are up for our game of the week award. And if you click here you can read all of the awesome lists of games we've prepared for your viewing pleasure. Right then, on with the predictions.

The fourth day of the working week only means one thing here at 148Apps towers - it's time to pick which game should win our game of the week award. We've narrowed down the shortlist to five, but it's up to you to choose which of them deserves to walk away with this week's crown.

It's been a difficult week for shortlisting though, since so many awesome, and unexpected games have come out over the past seven days. In other weeks, plenty of those would have made it onto this round-up of five, but this isn't other weeks. It's this week, and these are the games we've picked for you.

So how do you vote? Well, it couldn't be simpler. You can tweet us your choice using the hashtag #148GOW, you can leave a comment on our Facebook page, or you can register your choice by leaving a comment on this here article. See, it'd be difficult to make that any easier for you.

The best games like The Sims for iPhone and iPad

I'm sure you've played The Sims at least once in your life, if not to escape your own uncertain existence then likely to trap your Sims in the pool or set the house on fire and remove all of the doors. What? No, of course I've never done that… *ahem*

Whichever version of the game you've played or picked up there's always a similar pattern. Make your Sim, figure out what their aspirations are, build up your house (probably use motherlode in the cheats menu), and make friends with other Sims as you go.

These five games will give you that familiar feeling of managing your new non-existent dependents whilst also getting something out of it yourself – whether you want to build a successful life overall or just revel in a bit of drama

The best iPhone games like Pokemon Go

Posted by Harry Slater on September 24th, 2018

Pokemon GO is still the, if you'll excuse the pun, go-to game if you want some AR action on your phone. But it's not the only choice out there, and if you've got a hankering for something a bit different, then your eyes might already have started wandering. Which is why we've written this list of the best iPhone games like Pokemon GO.

Some of them follow pretty similar templates, albeit with different franchises or concepts wrapped around them. But we've pulled a couple from leftfield as well, to give you some different options if that's what you're after. Our aim is to make sure everyone downloads at least one game from this list. We're nothing if not optimistic.

You've probably got your own suggestions about what games should be on this list. If that's the case, make sure you toss them into the comments section at the bottom of the article. And if you click here you'll be able to check out all of our other awesome game lists as well. So that's pretty neat.

These are the iPhone games to look forward to next week

Posted by Harry Slater on September 21st, 2018

Every Friday here at 148Apps we like to do one thing. And that one thing is make sure that you've got a really good idea of what you're going to be playing come this time next week. That's right, it's time for us to round-up the best games that are set to hit the App Store in the next seven days.

We've included links so you can preorder the games from App Store, which means you won't even have to worry about remembering these games exist, since your phone will remind you when they're live on the App Store. That's pretty cool, right?

If you know any other games that are coming out next week, then feel free to share them in the comments. That way we'll all be able to get excited about them together, which is pretty awesome. Right then, on with the games.

The best iPhone games like Starcraft

Posted by Harry Slater on September 19th, 2018

Starcraft sits at the top of the RTS tree for a number of very good reasons. It also isn't on mobile, again, for a number of very good reasons. But that doesn't mean you can't find a way to indulge your sci-fi, competitive, massive, or engaging RTS desires if you know where to look.

Luckily, we do know where to look. Essentially it's our job, so we've trawled the App Store to find the best experiences that we think are going to at least sate your Starcraft cravings before you get back home to your PC where you can play properly.

We've chosen what we think are the finest games, but it's entirely possible that you disagree with us. If that's the case, then feel free to chuck your own suggestions in the comments section and get some discussion going. And if you're interested in content presented in list form, make sure you click this link and check out all the rest of the lists we've written.

The best cyberpunk games for mobile

Posted by Campbell Bird on September 18th, 2018

Cyberpunk games have come and gone through the years, but CD Projekt Red’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 has reignited everyone’s interest in dystopian hacker worlds lately. It also got me interested in exploring the App Store to see what the best cyberpunk games on iOS are.

After a pretty exhaustive search, I have to say that there isn’t a huge pool of quality cyberpunk games on mobile. I’m not sure what the reason for this is, but it should be corrected. All you devs out there, get to making some great cyberpunk games! In the meantime, check out this list of quality cyberpunk titles that the App Store currently offers:

Not too long ago we talked about all of the finest kitty-cats mobile gaming had to offer, but what about the best dogs on the market? You don't have to have thumbs to be an awesome protagonist.

If you've got a fur coat, a big heart, and love belly rubs, you can be a hero too. It may not be something you think of much, but in these games man's best friend is more than just a sidekick or emotional blackmail. These are the best pups.

The 5 best iPhone games like The Room

Posted by Harry Slater on September 18th, 2018

The Room has had a massive impact on the world of mobile gaming. Not only is it a brilliant adventure, it also shows how the touchscreen controls on your iPhone can be turned into something far more elegant and tactile than just a bunch of buttons. But what to do when you've finished playing through all four games in The Room saga?

That's why we've written this list. So that when it's time to put The Room down, you're not going to have to go cold turkey. The games on this list aren't just clones though, they build on the ideas of The Room and throw their own into the mix as well.

Obviously if you've got your own suggestions, feel free to chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. And if you want to read more of the awesome lists we write on a weekly basis, you can check them out by clicking right here.

The week is about to come to a pretty satisfying conclusion. You've got the weekend to look forward to, but after that another five days of the regular grind you have to go through to make money for games and sandwiches. If only you had something else to look forward to. Well, how about these awesome games that are going to be landing on the App Store next week?

We hope that's enough, because to be honest we don't really have anything else to offer. A hug if we ever meet? That's probably a bit too weird to be fair. Anyway, next week we've got rockets, pigs, more rockets, monkeys, and escaping from a cube, and those all sound like the sort of stuff you're going to love.

We've included pre-order links with all of the games so you can leap across to the App Store no harm no foul and make sure you're ready to receive them when they're released.

How is it Thursday again? Feels like only yesterday I was typing up the last list of awesome games for you, our charming and erudite readers, to pick a game of the week from. But here we are, caught in the neverending ebb and flow of time, picking another five awesome games that have come out over the last seven days.

There are some surprises on the list, and since it's been such a good week for games on the App Store, there's a good chance that you're going to think we've missed something out. But that's life, we can't pick every game. And trust us when we say we stressed and fretted about what was going to make it onto the list until the wee small hours.

But how do you pick a winner? Well it's incredibly easy. All you need to do is leave a comment at the bottom of the article with the name of the game you'd like to win. Or you can tweet us your answer with the hashtag #148GOW, or leave as a comment on our Facebook page. It really couldn't be simpler.

If you're interested to see what other games our readers have picked as their games of the week, click here and you'll be able to find out. Or, if you'd prefer, let's get on with this week's options.

The very best cats in mobile gaming

Posted by Emily Sowden on September 12th, 2018

Mobile games come in many shapes and forms and have many, many protagonists. Do you know what the best protagonist/context for a game is though? Cats.

Worshipped by Ancient Egyptians, idolised by internet culture, and probably one of the only animal that'll get away with scratching up your sofa, cats are always fun to watch. Why? Well, because they're adorable, duh. Even when they're trying to be all serious and go off on quests and things, you can't help notice how cute their outfits are or their fuzzy ears.

But this just isn't about the best cat-themed games. No, it's about the best cats in mobile gaming. If your favourite feline isn't on the list below, be sure to tell us in the comments below what games you love the most. And if you love lists, click here to check out all of the awesome ones we've written for your eyes to soak in.

These are the 5 best iPhone games like Dark Souls

Posted by Harry Slater on September 12th, 2018

There's no escaping the fact that everyone loves Dark Souls. If you've not heard of it, it's a super tough action RPG that punished your every mistake with swift retribution. It's the sort of game where you die a lot, and it can be pretty intimidating trying to get on board with the systems it throws at you.

But you can't play it on your iPhone. Well, there's Slashy Souls, but to be honest the less said about that the better. If you're looking to get some Souls-style action on the go though, there are plenty of options waiting for you on the App Store.

Rather than leaving you to find all of them for yourself though, we thought we'd do a list and round-up what we think are the five best games like Dark Souls for iPhone. If you think we're wrong, or you've got your own suggestions to chuck into the mix, let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article.

And while we're at it, why not click here and check out all the other awesome lists we've created for your viewing pleasure. Right then, on with the games.
