Twinfold review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on December 5th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: THREES, BUT THRILLING
This game borrows heavily from Sirvo Studios’s Threes! but the result is a game that feels completely unique and brilliant.

Super Fowlst review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 28th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: ROGUE(F)LITE
Super Fowlst incorporates Spelunky into its mishmash of influences. This would be incredible if not for the game's kind of slow start.


A Mortician's Tale review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 26th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: A BRIEF ENCOUNTER WITH DEATH
A Mortician's Tale is not your typical video game experience, and that's a good thing.

Kingdom Rush Vengeance review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 22nd, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: VENGEANCE AND VILLAINY
Kingdom Rush is back, and badder than ever.


SIMULACRA: Pipe Dreams review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 19th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: SPOOKY SATIRE
This indirect sequel to Simulacra fails to hit the highs of its predecessor.

Spitkiss review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 16th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: MAKES YOU SALIVATE
Don't let a bizarre setup stop you from playing this wonderfully creative platformer.


Black Paradox review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 15th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN
Black Paradox is essentially a retrowave version of Steredenn. It's fine, but definitely familiar.

Idle Skies review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Elizabeth Eagen-Jones on November 12th, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: IDLE WINGS
An idle game that's heavy on the idling

Hello Hero Epic Battle recently received its global launch - here’s what you need to know

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 26th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Hello Hero Epic Battle is proving itself to be the next big thing in mobile RPGs, with over 100 collectible heroes (and some real life character toys, too!), a colourful 3D world to explore, and plenty of opportunities to test your mettle in the heat of battle.

The game is quite expansive, with Heroes and equipment to upgrade and dungeons to explore. Luckily we’re here to ensure you get off to a good start. Here are five tips to help you on your journey.


Explore the game’s many modes

Hello Hero Epic Battle boasts a large number of gameplay modes, from character management, to single player adventures, to multiplayer competitions and events. Explore the game’s vibrant world in single-player Adventure mode, where you’ll traverse seven unique regions and unravel the game’s story. The game’s Ranking modes offer multiplayer challenges, from epic Boss fights to high stakes PvE battles in Conquest and Battlefield modes.


Build a team that will cover your bases

You’ll find that every Hero in Hello Hero Epic Battle falls into one of four classes. You’ll want to make sure your party features a few different classes to ensure you can meet every challenge head on. Defense characters are your tanks, with impressive physical and magical defense and high health. Melee/Ranged Attack Heroes deal out strong physical and magical damage from afar, but have low health. Melee/Ranged Hybrid characters have close range physical attacks and can put out ranged magical attacks. And lastly, Support characters don’t have much by way of physical or magical attack skills, but they are essential to healing the rest of your party when they take damage.

A quick starter guide to Soul Seeker: Six Knights

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: SAMEY BUT FUN :: Read Review »

After the success of the original Soul Seeker, South Korean developer Clegames has crafted a second, gacha-packed instalment. Expect more anime-style characters, more Soul searching and more strategic battling. To get you Soul-Seeker ready, read our quick starter guide.


The story so far...

Five gods built the world of Hermes, but it didn't take long before they were squabbling with each other ownership. After a war between them nearly frazzled the land to bits, the gods thought it wise to lock themselves in magical objects called Soul Stones, where they could do no more harm. Unfortunately, their minion factions continued the fight. They began seeking the Soul Stones in an effort to wield godly powers against their rivals, at the risk of destroying Hermes in the process. Up pops the Albion Knights, dedicated to finding and destroying the Soul Stones to keep the world safe. And who should be within the order's ranks but you, ready to save the day.

How will World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Blizzard's other games work for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on November 19th, 2018

You might have heard that Blizzard is bringing Diablo to mobile with Diablo Ultimate. There's been plenty of controversy surrounding that decision, and it's meant that a really important piece of information has been glossed over a little. Namely that Blizzard is bringing all of its IP to mobile in the foreseeable future.

Obviously that kicked our brains into gear here at 148App's palatial research unit. We got to thinking about how Blizzard's massive franchises could make it onto the App Store. And then we wrote down those thoughts. What you're looking at now is the culmination of that endeavour.

If you've got your own suggestions as to how Blizzard could squish its game down to pocket-sized, then be sure to let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article. First though, let's find out what we thought about the obstacles and challenges that are waiting for Blizzard.
