Whoever said perfection is overrated obviously never got a five-star review on 148Apps. It doesn't happen often. Just take a quick look through our reviews and you'll see lots of well-deserving Editor's Choice winners, but most only reach four-and-a-half stars. In fact, in all of 2013 there have only been ten five-star reviews. Take a look at some of what we considered the best of the best this year.


Jool is a unique 2D platformer that features a bird and his evil alter ego. Collect items, earn points, and survive. --Michael Carattini

Year Walk

Year Walk is a haunting adventure game from Simogo that blends a dark world and involved mythology together to create an absolutely amazing experience. --Carter Dotson

Ridiculous Fishing

Ridiculous Fishing, Vlambeer's fishing (with guns!) game has been a long time in the works thanks to drama over a clone, but it's finally here and it's spectacular. --Carter Dotson

The Orchestra

The Orchestra takes classical music lovers of all ages on a multi-media back stage tour like no other. --Lisa Caplan

Robot Unicorn Attack 2

Robot Unicorn Attack 2 takes everything that was great about the original and adds more depth to it to make it a tremendous experience. --Carter Dotson

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

The best Star Wars game of all time has made it to the iPad in a faithful port by Aspyr, and Knights of the Old Republic shines just as brightly as it did ten years ago. --Carter Dotson

Mikey Hooks

Mikey Hooks takes the casual speedrun formula of Mikey Shorts and adds grappling hooks for more addictive speedrun fun. Speedfun! --Carter Dotson

Dropcam Pro

Dropcam Pro is an upgrade to the previous model, which we already loved. This new model adds beefier hardware and better software. --Jeff Scott

Device 6

Device 6 is Simogo's latest masterpiece, a mystifying interactive fiction experience. --Carter Dotson

Tweetbot 3 for iPhone

The best Twitter app around gets a massive visual overhaul for iOS 7, but is it and its new features worth the paid upgrade to a new app? --Carter Dotson
