It's Valentine's Day! Did you get loads of cards and chocolates and other tacky, simple expressions of human affection? Did you send out tat because you find it almost impossible to express emotion unless there's a section dedicated to it at your local shop? Hahahaha it's all fun and games.

If you're stumped for what to do on this most momentous of date nights, don't fret, because we've got you covered. After all, what says 'I love you' better than a mobile game? Literally nothing, that's what. So here are the best games to play with your soul mate this evening.

The 5 most anticipated mobile games of 2018

Posted by Jessica Famularo on January 6th, 2018

2017 was a pretty outstanding year for mobile games, and one we won't soon forget. While you might still be working through your back log of positively brilliant games from the past year, we're still excited to see what the next year has in store. While we're expecting plenty of surprises along the way (that's the nature of the biz, after all), there are quite a few games already announced that we're eager to get a hold of. Here are five of our most anticipated games of 2018.

Amazing Katamari Damacy guide - beginner tips and tricks

Posted by Jessica Famularo on December 12th, 2017

Amazing Katamari Damacy brings the bizarro world of the original games to mobile and shifts them into an endless format that's just as addictive as the PlayStation entries. Your goal is still to roll as much random stuff as you possibly can, though now you'll face off against spikes and other traps.

While there's a lot of familiar mechanics at play (the rolling and all of that), the game's new endless nature adds some new obstacles into the mix that call for fresh strategy. Here are a few tips to get you rolling.

This runner does a good job of channeling the crazy charm of Katamari Damacy, but it’s also overloaded with ads and other annoyances.

5 slither.io mash-ups we'd love to see happen

Posted by Ric Cowley on April 29th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If there's one thing that slither.io has proved, it's that the addictive gameplay of Agar.io can be transplanted onto basically anything and it will still be good fun.

It wouldn't be surprising if we saw other developers jumping on the bandwagon, and we've come up with five major games that we think could benefit from taking a leaf out of slither.io's book.

Developer Spotlight: Fat Pebble

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 12th, 2012

We've been keeping an eye on Fat Pebble since its latest release, Clay Jam, was announced last year. Offering an innovative claymation visual style and encouraging community participation through its competition, finally Clay Jam is here. What better time to learn a little more about the folks behind the name?

Who is Fat Pebble?
Fat Pebble is a games studio, based in Brighton, UK. Having developed numerous titles for a variety of mobile formats, the firm caught the eye of publishing giant Zynga, leading to Clay Jam's release under that label. Combined, the team offers over 40 years of experience, having previously worked for companies such as Lionhead, Climax, Blitz and Zoë Mode.

What is Fat Pebble most famous for?
The Windows 7 port of MiniSquadron which is a pretty great claim to fame, and Kung Fu Touch. We reckon Clay Jam will propel Fat Pebble to more recognizable levels, though.

What's next on the horizon?
Fat Pebble's Michael Movel wasn't giving away too much about this when we asked, explaining that the team will be 'concentrating on updates to Clay Jam for the next few months'. Plans are there for prototyping a new game in 2013, with the hope that it'll be 'quirky and possibly hand-made again'.

What else is there to know about the developer?
Plenty! We took the time to learn more about them by chatting with Movel, art director Chris Roe and technical director Iain Gilfeather.

148apps: What's your favorite thing about iOS development?
Iain: I like the fact that most of the players are not traditional gamers. It's exciting to make games for an entirely new type of audience and explore new boundaries.

Chris: You don't need big teams for iOS and mobile development in general. This lets you experiment much more and means you can be much more creative.

Mike: I think it brings developers and players much closer together. Updates are a big part of mobile development and what that means is that players can have a very direct influence over what changes we make to Clay Jam. We've had a whole heap of emails with suggestions and feedback, and we also trawl the forums - all this very much drives what we put in any new updates.

148apps: Is there an iOS app or game that you wish you’d developed first? If so, what apps/games?

Iain: Tiny Wings. It's a really well-made game and great fun too. It all seems really well-thought out too. I would have liked to have made that.

Chris: Enviro Bear 2010! A physics-based, bear driving game! It's flawless! I wish I'd thought of it.

Mike: I'm still playing Temple Run. I want all those achievements. It's really nicely balanced. But I'd go for either (PC games) UFO: Enemy Unknown or Grim Fandango, for different reasons. They both really grabbed me when they first came out and I still play them today. I would be really proud to have written the script to Grim Fandango.

Where can I find out more about Fat Pebble?
There's the website, Facebook page, and Twitter. And, of course, we'll keep you up to date on all the latest about the colorful developer.

Clay Jam is out now and is free to download.
