Angry Birds Champions adds cash prizes to the famous bird-flinger

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 23rd, 2018

Collaborating with developer Rovio Entertainment, GSN Games has released a twist on the Angry Birds formula. Angry Birds Champions features the same bird-flinging gameplay, but now you can catapult Red and co for cash.

The partnership uses GSN’s WorldWinner games platform, which has been offering tournament versions of popular titles for 20 years. WorldWinner isn’t a casino app, though – you have to beat real opponents with real skill to win any money. Angry Birds Champions matches you with players of a similar level, and then it’s down to you to show your pig-thwacking prowess.

The game features two tournament modes – Best of 3 and Progression. During Best of 3, you play the same level three times, and only your highest score counts towards the result. So you can use the initial turns to hone your aim and strategy. Progression is less forgiving, challenging you with three different levels and tallying up the total of each level. In other words, every level counts.

Players based in the U.S. and Canada can start chucking birds for cash by downloading the WorldWinner iOS app, which features Angry Birds Champions, along with tournament twists on a host of other popular mobile games. The platform has awarded players with over $1.5 billion since it began, so there’s plenty to flap about.

Our top 5 characters from casual RPG Creature Quest

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 16th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Creature Quest definitely lives up to its name with a host of collectible creatures based on fantasy tales and world mythologies. To celebrate Creature Quest’s first birthday, we’re going to lay out what we think are the five best characters in the game. Let’s get to it.

5. Celestial Sentinel

The Celestial Sentinel is Creature Quest’s best healer, hands down. Not only can he resurrect and heal your party members, he’ll also restore your team members’ mana. If he dies, he can revive and heal the rest of your team, including himself. He’s the ideal safety net.

More monsters to collect and evolve in Creature Quest’s anniversary update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 12th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

A laid-back mix of RPG and TCG, Creature Quest is all about building your deck, evolving your creatures and winning in battle. It’s the creation of VC Mobile, set up by Might and Magic producer Jon Van Caneghem. There are elements of that classic PC game here, but for the most part, this is a modern, mobile experience. Now one year on from its launch, it's just received a new update with some big changes.

Firstly, you’ll gain more loot in the Battle Tower, making your fights more fruitful. You’ll also receive rewards on a sliding scale, based on how many of your creatures survive the fray, so the better you do, the more you’ll win. New players will also benefit from a week of check-in rewards and a Legendary creature to kickstart your deck.

You’ve also got two new automatic features to play with. Auto-battle lets you leave your captured creatures to handle the fight, while auto-pickup hoovers up the loot you stumble upon exploring quest maps. These optional features should make grinding less onerous.

The update introduces three new creatures to collect. The Legendary-level Cacaelia and Siege Construct and the Rare-level Lightning Nymph – a Battle Tower reward that is guaranteed to come with at least three Combo Dots.

Beyond the update’s under-the-hood tweaking, there’s a busy diary of in-game events and dungeon challenges planned. There’ll be a Valentine’s Day take-over and an exclusive quest, Battlefield of Love, between February 9-19. Creature Quest will get a St Patrick’s Day take-over in March, along with another one-off quest, the unsettlingly-titled Ooze Cruise. And there’s much more planned for 2018.

If you want to join the creature-catching, monster-battling fun, download Creature Quest for free on iOS and Android.

The Perfect Apps for your iPad

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 12th, 2018

The apps which are available in the iOS App Store make the iPad more than just a smooth device that's fantastic for looking at photos and browsing the internet. If you are looking to write detailed notes, create drawings, plan projects or play games, here are some perfect apps that you will need for your iPad.

Paper

Paper is a drawing app, which is one of the trendiest iPad programs for good reasons. It’s fun and super simple to use. Over the years, it has included serious features such as, the option to make to-do lists and draw on photos. Many people find this app valuable for getting autographs. That’s simply because it is easy for them to export it as an image to a camera roll.

Pixelmator

Using an iPad doesn't mean that you are limited to the Photos app for improving your snapshots. Pixelmator brings Photoshop-level tools like Clone, Level Adjustment Distort, and Repair to the iPad. You also have a big enough screen to make good use of them. The latest update added Magnetic Selection and Quick Select.

Marvel Unlimited

While speaking of Marvel, many comic fans who favor the publishing house that Stan Lee constructed may be better off with this app. Also, it has a $9.99 monthly subscription. This game packs many titles so you can learn more about Groot, Jessica Jones, Captain America and the rest of the characters filling the cinematic and televised Marvel universes.

MindNode

Mind-mapping is the preparation of picturing complex ideas with a sequence of linked notes and images. Your best choice for making digital versions of these maps is MindNode. This app first gained popularity on the Mac. Today, it is still fancied on iOS. It's an outstanding mode to make the most out of that large screen on your iPad.

Spark

Responding and handling to all the email you get can be a real annoyance. However, with Spark, not only can you snooze messages to send later, but you can equally pin valuable emails to the app's screen so you don't ignore them.

Pigment

The miracle of coloring books for adults, which many believe to be a stress reliever, has gone digital. Many people think that the fun in digital versions is to tap once to color in a section. But with Pigment at your disposal, this enables you to use a third-party stylus, Apple Pencil or even your finger to manually draw. Also, you don’t need to be worried about coloring over or outside of the lines.

Fantastical 2

This app was the first one to provide natural-language recognition. It enabled it to create events from picking out titles, bricks of text, times and locations. You can make great use of it for making calendar events by copying them in from other apps.

Besides these amazing apps, you can do a lot more on an iPad. For instance, there are games which do not require downloading an app to enjoy it. If you look at the slot games at Magical Vegas online casino, they can easily be played on an iPad. You will only need to connect it to your Wi-Fi connection and look for the site on Google. However, the above list was simply for you to get an idea of the perfect apps for your iPad!
