Heroes of Incredible Tales review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 26th, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: DIABLO CLICKER
Do you like grinding out gear to make some numbers go up? This flashy, free-to-play action rpg offers up plenty of that, but little else.

Tiny Archers review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: SLIGHTLY OFF TARGET
This arcade archery game offers up some casual fun, though some of its design cheapens the experience.


Rooms of Doom review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 21st, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: CROSSY WARIO
This endless arcade game tries to combine Crossy Road and WarioWare, and the result is fun, although a little forgettable.

Pokémon GO review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 12th, 2016
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: POCKET MONSTER
This location-based Pokémon game does the bare minimum in the Pokémon and game departments, but somehow creates some appeal nonetheless.


The Slaughter: Act One review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 8th, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: SURREAL ADVENTURE
With a decent amount of charm and interesting storytelling, this buggy, old school adventure game still manages to stand out.

Crypt of the NecroDancer Pocket Edition review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 8th, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: ROGUE BEAT
A rhythm-based roguelike sounds super hard and bad, but this one manages to be the former without being the latter.


CSR Racing 2 review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 5th, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: BEAUTIFUL DRAG
This racing game sure looks great, but its lack of substance and free-to-play mechanics make it a bit of a drag.

Neo Turf Masters review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on June 30th, 2016
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: STROKES OF NOSTALGIA
This classic arcade golf game has made its way to mobile with some nice usability tweaks, but is that enough to make it hold up?

Getting started with Pokémon GO: A Guide to the basics

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 7th, 2016

After all kinds of anticipation, Pokémon GO has finally been released on the U.S. and most markets around the world. The first true mobile game from Nintendo, it allows players to live out a fantasy we've all had at one time or another and makes it as close to being a Pokémon Trainer in real life as possible thanks to its augmented reality focus.

And admit, you've definitely wanted to be a Pokémon Trainer at some point in your life.

Take advantage of JoyCity’s pre-register event for Eldrian Legacy now

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 7th, 2016

For fantasy-based RPG lovers everywhere comes publisher JoyCity’s latest release, Eldrian Legacy. The title embraces the traditional RPG format and offers a generous collection of characters to play with (presently, 37).

Each of said characters represents one of 6 elements, which are central to the game and have their own special moves and strengths. These must be combined together strategically within a player’s party to ensure maximum power for battles ahead.

Is today Pokémon GO release day? How you can play now

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 6th, 2016

If you've been looking forward to the release of Pokémon GO, you probably woke up excited today to find the internet abuzz with word that the game is live. That euphoria also likely turned to crushing disappointment before too long, because if you live anywhere but Australia and New Zealand, Nintendo's first real mobile game is not out. Yet.

And because Nintendo and its partners at The Pokémon Company and Niantic are still being tight-lipped about how the roll-out of Pokémon GO is being handled, we don't even know for sure if the official North American launch will be sometime today, later this week or later this month. Still, where there's a will, there's a way, and you can indeed play Pokémon GO if you so desire.

How to find friends on live.ly

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 5th, 2016

When live.ly first released, it was about as bare bones as you could get. You could use the app to easily live stream video of yourself, which was the whole point, but you couldn't do much else with it.

The folks at musical.ly have updated the app several times since its launch, and while those updates haven't added a ton of functionality to live.ly, it's correct to say it does more than it did even a week ago and makes you feel like more of a part of a community of fellow streamers.

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: ROYALLY FUN :: Read Review »

While all of our American readers were celebrating their independence earlier this week -- ironically from the country that 148apps' parent company calls home -- Supercell got to work dropping a fresh new Clash Royale update on everyone.

In similar fashion to previous updates, this one included both new cards and balance changes made to various existing cards. There's even a brand new arena: Frozen Peak, which unlocks once you've reached 2300 trophies.

If you've already conquered the Savannahand are running a profitable zooin Rodeo Stampede, then congrats. You're already one of the most impressive cowboys or cowgirls flying the friendly skies (trust us, that will make a lot more sense if you've been playing the game for a while).

But your job is only half done. Once you've corralled all of the Savannah animals, you're ready to step up to test your skills against the Jungle. You do remember what Guns N' Roses warned us about the jungle, right?

Get free coins in UFC Knockout 2016

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 4th, 2016

If you enjoy mixed martial arts, you'll want to check out UFC Knockout 2016. The latest of Topps' line of digital trading card apps -- which also includes apps for baseball, football (regular and American), Star Wars, and The Walking Dead -- it features all the stars of the UFC on a variety of virtual, collectible cards.

The app also has a fantasy sports element, as you can compete using the cards you have amassed, scoring points when those fighters do well in real UFC bouts. To take part in any of what the app has to offer, though, you're going to need coins, which serve as the in-app currency.

CSR Racing 2 complete vehicle list: How to get every car

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 3rd, 2016

In CSR Racing 2, you're only as cool as your garage. NaturalMotion and Zynga stocked their new drag racing title with an imprssive selection of top notch vehicles, enough to ever make Jay Leno envious if they were all in one real life collection.

But it's one thing to talk about all the sweet rides in CSR2 and another to actually be able to grab them for yourself. With two dozen manufacturers represented and cars spread across five different tiers, there's a lot of work to do to collect them all.

Gordon Ramsay DASH: Guide to upgrading appliances and food

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 1st, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If we've learned anything about celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay over the years, it's that you don't want him angry and breathing down your neck. He's not above calling you out on TV, making a mockery of your efforts in the kitchen in front of millions of people.

In his new game, Gordon Ramsay DASH, he's actually pretty complimentary of your cooking efforts -- provided you get orders right and serve customers efficiently. The road to doing that is paved with upgrades, as you'll need both better food and improved appliances to become a true 'Rising Star Chef.'

5 popular free fertility apps

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 30th, 2016

There was a good article this week in The Independent about how more women are using fertility appsas a de facto form of contraception. It's apparently not working too well, leading to numerous unwanted pregnancies.

That's not a good thing. But the fact remains that apps to track a woman's menstrual cycle are probably as popular as they've ever been. A glance at the section of the App Store devoted to Health and Fitness bears this out, as among the fitness trackers and weight loss aids are plenty of fertility apps.

How to get more cars in CSR Racing 2

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 30th, 2016

NaturalMotion and Zynga brought a lot of real life cars to the table for CSR Racing 2. From souped up everyday rides made by Nissan and Hyundai to supercars produced by the likes of McLaren and Pagani, there really is something for everyone.

Naturally, the first question a lot of gamers have about a title like this is, "How many cars on there?" That's generally followed closely by another: "How do I get my hands on them?"

Gear-grinding puzzle title Inner Circle is now available on iOS systems

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 30th, 2016
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

If you saw our post earlier this month announcing the imminent release of ZPlay’s new creation, Inner Circle, you’ll be happy to know that it’s now available on the App Store.

Established in 2010, developer and publisher ZPlay have taken the mobile gaming industry by storm, attracting an impressive collection of over 400 million users to date and achieved top 10 ratings across the globe.

With its digestible concept, pretty graphics and quirky soundtrack, the title is a sure-fire hit with all generations, from young kids to grandparents alike – think Tetris, for the 21st Century.

To succeed within gameplay, the idea is to rotate the outer circle to align with the ‘inner circle’, by tapping the screen to flip the colours on the wheel and swiping to shrink it in order to receive more points.

Loss occurs when players don’t manage to align the colours successfully before the circles meet, which gets more and more difficult to avoid as you progress through the game’s impressive array of 250 levels.

With a number of sweet features including a night-mode that protects sleepy eyes from bright shades by altering the colour scheme for varied lighting, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through as many levels as they can on an indefinite scale, Inner Circle has a lot to offer.

Presently, you can catch the release, for free, from the App Store for your Apple device – so, what’re you waiting for?
