Age of Solitaire review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 27th, 2017
Our rating: starstarblankstarblankstarblankstar :: NO CIVILIZATION
This Solitaire game bills itself as a city building game, which rings pretty false.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 26th, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: SLOW SWIPES
Eden: Renaissance is essentially a less polished GO game.

By Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: VIENNA VENTURE
The Lion's Song isn't the strongest adventure game out there, but it is certainly one of the most uniquely interesting ones.

A Planet of Mine review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 21st, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: CIRCULAR CIVILIZATION
This strategy game does a poor job of explaining itself, but is otherwise a great 4X-style experience.

By Campbell Bird on July 20th, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: SPATIAL SPELLING
Sidewords turns the traditional conventions of word games on their heads in a way that is truly unique and fun.

Resynth's attempts to blend puzzling with music are not particularly successful.

By Campbell Bird on July 18th, 2017
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: RANDOM RANSACKING
This puzzle rpg leans a little too heavily on procedural generation to design its levels.

Test your pop culture knowledge with Font Mystery

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 3rd, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Like fellow French duo Daft Punk, the Creative Brothers pool their collective brainpower to create stuff for people to play. Rather than an album of disco plunderphonics, though, the developer double-act has released a fun new app called Font Mystery. The game has just received its worldwide release on the App Store and Google Play, and is free to play.

Font Mystery challenges players with recognisable fonts from the spectrum of pop culture, so fans of Logo Quiz will find themselves in familiar territory. There are different categories to choose from, including films, video games, books and TV programmes. You’re presented with a sentence in black-and-white text, and have to use the letters available onscreen to write the answer. The phrases themselves offer a hint – for example, ‘hilarious green disguise’ in familiar wonky typeface for The Mask, or ‘a movie with dinosaurs’ in that iconic tribal font for Jurassic Park. There are additional hints available if you get stuck, and additional difficulty settings if you’re a pop culture buff looking for more of a challenge.

Font Mystery boasts 150 fonts and 200 levels to complete, with various achievements and themes to unlock. Although it’s single player, it’s also the perfect game for casual get togethers, letting you test your friends and family on their knowledge, or getting them to help you out when you’re stuck.

Font Mystery is the perfect way to find out if you know your famous film fonts from your top telly typefaces. It’s available for free for Android and iOS in English, French, Spanish and Italian.

Dive into epic summer adventure with Oceans & Empires’ new update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 28th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Summer may be the best time to enjoy ocean adventures, and now you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home, thanks to the folks at Joycity, creators of Oceans & Empires. The old-timey naval MMO is getting a sizable new June Grand Update that brings a host of new gameplay elements, just in time for vacation.

Players will team up this summer to take on Aestaros, a new Boss Monster challenging adventures to a Rally Attack. Players have to work together in perfect unison to take down the beast, but fortunately that’s made easier with the addition of the new global chat system that lets all players talk, regardless of their server. A new preset function works to streamline combat, too, allowing players to swap between Skill palettes with a single tap of their finger. If you're itching to get new loot in Alliance battles, you now only need to be VIP level four, rather than eight, to “Receive All” on Alliance rewards.

Ships get a boost too, now that you can add figureheads to give your ship a unique look and new buffs. You can rename each ship you add to your fleet, too, to keep things nice and organized. There are other new buffs and items to discover outside of these figureheads, though, including Ship DurabilityBuffs, along with items such as Voyage Speed Up 75% and Random Equipment Ticket.

Smaller adjustments like enhanced purchase methods and the option to retrieve inactive Alliance Buildings give even more incentive to dust off your battleship and set sail.

Oceans & Empires is available to download on iOS and Android.
