SpitKiss is the worthy winner of last week's 148Apps game of the week award

Posted by Harry Slater on November 13th, 2018

It's been a rough and tumble battle this week, with all of the games managing to get a few hits in where it counts, but after checking with the independent adjudicators at ringside, we can now reveal that gloriously gross smooching sim SpitKiss has won last week's game of the week award.

It's a game about love, polyamory, and modern relationships. But it's also one of the best platformers we've played on our phones for a very long time. And we think that's the finest reason for it to be crowned last week's game of the week.

Last week's game of the week award goes to the spook-tastic Candies 'n Curses

Posted by Harry Slater on October 30th, 2018

This week it's been one of the closest run game of the week awards we've ever seen, but after sending the numbers to a specially convened council of counting elders in Bern, we can now reveal that Candies n' Curses has been awarded this week's title.

It's a spectacular mix of the old and the new that sees you legging it around a series of spooky one-screen dungeons, trying to kill ghosts with a flashlight. At first glance it might look like another simple high-score chaser, but trust us, there's so much more going on here than that. Read on and find out what.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is your iPhone and iPad game of the week

Posted by Harry Slater on October 24th, 2018

After a quick call to the court of arbitration for counting in Vienna, we can now reveal that the winner of last week's game of the week award is the really rather brilliant Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.

It's a gorgeous-looking, super-slick puzzling platformer, and while it sometimes rests on its leaping-laurels, there's so much here to love that it'd be churlish to blame it for sometimes just being a really good platformer instead of a great one. What sort of things are we talking about though?

It's up to you to decide the winner of our iPhone and iPad game of the week award

Thursday is the day when most of the new releases come out on the App Store. It's also the day when we pick what we think are the best five games that have come out over the last seven days. Then we pose you, our readers, a simple question - which is best?

There's one game on the list that probably stands above all the others in terms of how excited people are to play it, but if we've learned anything from these articles, it's that excitement isn't always a good marker of what game is going to walk away from the vote victorious.

You're probably wondering how you vote now. Well, it couldn't be easier. You can leave a comment at the bottom of the article with your choice. Or contact us on Twitter with the hashtage #148GOW with your pick. If that's not enough, you can even leave us a comment on our Facebook page to let us know.

Grimvalor is last week's 148Apps iPhone and iPad game of the week

Posted by Harry Slater on October 18th, 2018

What a week it has been here at 148Apps towers. We've been swamped, which means we're a bit late letting you know what last week's game of the week was. Don't worry though, we're here now, and we can reveal that Grimvalor takes away the prize.

It was a pretty tight run thing this week, but we're pretty confident that the correct game has won. Grimvalor might look a lot like a Dark Souls clone at first glance, but dig a bit deeper and you'll discover something really rather special lurking in the grim fantasy aesthetic. And we love special things here at 148Apps.

My scariest mobile game - Final Fantasy 7

Posted by Harry Slater on October 17th, 2018

This is going to be a bit of a weird one, but bear with me. The game that has scared me the most isn't a horror experience (don't get me wrong, I won't go outside if it's foggy thanks to Silent Hill 2), it's actually Final Fantasy 7. Sounds ridiculous, right? But there's a good reason that no other games have managed to put me quite so on edge as Square's classic JRPG.

There are some horror aspects in the game - you find Vincent Valentine in a coffin in the basement of a mansion. And he's a vampire. But those moments are more box-ticking tropes than anything else. No one's terrified of Vincent Valentine, unless they harbour dark fears about androgynous cybergoths.

It's not the bits in Final Fantasy 7 that were meant to scary that put the fear of Genova into me, it's the moments where it shows just how vulnerable your party is. It's when it shows you just how exposed to the world you really are.

Time to pick which of these games should be the 148Apps iPhone and iPad game of the week

It's Thursday, and every Thursday here at 148Apps we like to have a little vote. We pick what we think are the best games that have come out over the past seven days, and then it's up to you to choose which of them should be crowned the 148Apps iPhone and iPad game of the week.

You're no doubt wondering how to vote by now. Well, it couldn't be simpler. Either send us a tweet with the hashtag #148GOW, or leave us a comment on our Facebook page. You could even let us know your choice by dropping a comment in the comments box at the bottom of the article.

However you choose to do it, we hope you pick wisely. Click here and you'll find out if last week's voters were wise with the choice they made. And if you're done there, let's get on with this week's fine selection.

True Surf is the winner of last week's 148Apps iPhone and iPad game of the week award

Posted by Harry Slater on October 9th, 2018

We've run all of the numbers through our massive, high-tech, super powerful AI-controlled computer, sent them off to the laboratories in Switzerland for final approval, and consulted our lizard overlords to ensure that we're not treading on anyone's toes, but we can now reveal that the winner of this week's game of the week award is none other than True Surf.

It was the runaway winner of the prize, thanks largely to a big vote from the surfing community. But how good is it, does it manage to capture that feeling of slicing through the waves, and do we think it's a worthy winner of our game of the week award? The answer to that last one is yes, we definitely do. You're going to have to read on to get the answers to the others though.

It's an interesting mix this week. We've got platformers, cruel action RPGs, a surfing sim, and a game that's all about combining monkeys together to make super monkeys. They're all really good, but it's up to you to decide which of them should walk away with the coveted award.

How do you vote though? Well, it's pretty simple. All you need to do is leave a comment at the bottom of the article. Or, if you'd prefer, tweet us your select @148Apps with the hashtag #148GOW. You can leave us a comment on Facebook as well if that's your way of doing things.
