Tinned food is underrated. When the warning siren goes, and your suburban home is nuked into a radioactive pancake, what else are you going to depend on for sustenance down in the bunker? But if you’ve only got 60 seconds to gather supplies, you’ll have to pocket a lot of canned tomato soup. And everything else you and your family will need to stay alive. Then comes the tough part – spending countless days holed up in your fallout shelter, with only your family and mutant cockroaches for company. At least the cockroaches don’t nag.

So begins developer Robot Gentleman’s apocalyptic simulator 60 Seconds!. The game’s nightmare scenario is given a strong dose of dark humour throughout, helped by the 1950s, white-picket-fence backdrop. You take control of Ted, hell-bent on keeping his family alive, even when all around him has turned to ash. First released on PC, Nintendo Switch and iOS, 60 Seconds! received its debut on Android in December last year. It’s managed over a million sales across all platforms since then, and the latest DLC is sure to draw more players.

Tap your way to victory in Color Tracks Go, the vibrant arcade puzzler from Farawla Games

Posted by 148Apps Staff on July 12th, 2018

Life is experienced in colour, so why wouldn’t you want the same visual excitement and experimentation from your puzzle games? Indie developer Farawla Games had this thought, and so sought to create a game that features a seamless mixture of colour, challenge, and skill. Color Tracks Go is that game and it’s free to download now on iOSand Android.

Color Tracks Go offers players various ways to get their colour-filled fix with three modes: Curves, Reflections, and Choice. Each tasks players to use all their fingers to tap the required colours in its tracks as fast as possible, albeit with their slight twists. Curves, for instance, features various curving colour paths to contend with, while Reflections sees two lines of moving tracks reflect each other as colour alternate every 10 taps.

There’s no predicting the ways colours will move and change in Color Tracks Go, and the track countthemselves will even change during gameplay, meaning you’ll always need to stay focussed and primed in any mode you play. Ranking high on the leaderboard against friends might be a challenge, but seamless Twitter and Facebook integration means that shouting about your skills on social media is easy!

There’s plenty of colourful levels to get tapping to in Color Tracks Go, so why not give it a go and download the game today?

Take flight this summer with Legacy of Discord - Furious Wings next big update

Posted by Luke Frater on June 27th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Legacy of Discord - Furious Wings is back with a huge new summer update to keep you going during those long dog days. The game’s introducing a brand new Puppet Master class, along with a pretty cool Mechanize feature and the multiplayer Treasure Raider mode. There’s plenty here to explore, so let’s get started, shall we?

The new Puppet Master class is of course the star of this latest update. The Puppet Master users her customizable mechanized puppet to sow chaos on the battlefield. This class packs quite a punch. Her base attack, Mecha Assault does heavy melee damage with a mechanical fist, and her other abilities are no laughing matter, either. The Puppet Master’s ultimate skill, Obliterate, overloads the puppet’s energy reserves, sending a full force blast of energy to decimate enemies. Players gain access to the Puppet Master at level 62 with 5,000 diamonds and after participating in the new Treasure Raider mode at least six times.

Once you’ve gotten the Puppet Master under your belt, you’ll also gain access to the Mechanize feature, which allows you to build a hulking, customizable Mecha out of six parts. Upgrade your Mecha and equip it with melee, ranged, and core weapons. As you enhance your Mecha, you’ll be able to form Affinities with the weapons you select, allowing you to create your own unique, unstoppable fighting machine.

You can test all of these new features out in the new Treasure Raider mode, either with five other players or on your own. Enter the Treasure Raider dungeon, fighting your way through waves of monsters to take down the big boss at the end. If you’re successful, you’ll spawn a chest guarded by even more monsters. Defeating them could give you access to some incredible treasures.

Furious Wing's Celesital Construction event has also got underway this week and will run until this Friday, offering Celestial Tokens as well as personal and guild ranking rewards as prizes. A Super Reward is also up for grabs each day by hitting the required amount of ranking points. To pick up even bigger rewards, make sure to make contributions of materials and diamonds, but take note that if you leave your guild before the day's rankings are calculated, your contribution points won't count towards your guild.

Think you’re ready to see what Legacy of Discord - Furious Wings has in store for you? You can download the game for free right now on the App Store and Google Play.

7 reasons to play TerraGenesis, the terrific terraforming sim

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 1st, 2018
+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

For you sci-fi buffs, terraforming won’t be an alien concept. The basic idea is making a planet more Earth-like and therefore habitable, often by tinkering with factors such as the atmosphere.
You’ll find terraforming in everything from the scribblings of genre heavyweight H.G. Wells to sandbox sims like Spore. There are a handful of terraforming games already on mobile, but few have the level of detail TerraGenesis boasts. Here are 7 reasons you should start shaping worlds with this ingenious indie sim.

Explore the Solar System
Whilst there are fictional planets to play god with, as well as a random planet generator, the draw of TerraGenesis lies in the way it depicts real planets. The likes of Earth, Mars, Mercury and Venus are all playable worlds, as are many moons of the Solar System. They aren’t just slapdash approximations, either; developer Edgeworks Entertainment used NASA’s own satellite data to create pixel-perfect renditions of these galactic bodies. Whether you’re building a colony on Olympus Mons, flooding the Valles Marineris or melting the ice on the surface of Europa, you’ll be exploring real landscapes, as they exist in our universe.

Tackle harsh realities
Mars is a freezing desert with almost no air, while Venus’s atmosphere is thicker than seawater and hot enough to melt lead. The true challenge of terraforming a world isn’t creating colonies, it’s fighting the elements. TerraGenesis uses detailed simulations and realistic physics to bring your worlds to life, and presents them through a clean, minimalist interface. This allows the game to feel authentic and challenging, but in a way that’s still approachable for people who don’t come from a scientific background.

Create utopia – or dystopia
As you transform the surface of your new world, you’ll transform the culture of your new colonists. Will you build a capitalist boomtown or an eco-friendly, space-age eden? The values, traditions, hopes, dreams, and fates of millions of colonists are in your hands. In TerraGenesis, you can create a promised land for all of humanity, or a nightmare to last millennia.

Support the indie spirit
TerraGenesis is a rare indie success story. Developed by Alexander Winn in his spare time, it managed 1 million downloads in its first year on the App Store, and is following suit since its April launch on Android, creating an enthusiastic player base around the world. If you’re keen to support indie developers, or just curious what can be done by one person with a passion for space exploration, this is the game for you.

Freemium done right
Developer Edgeworks Entertainment didn’t want TerraGenesis to become a money trap, so has carefully eschewed the ‘pay-to-win’ experience. The game comes with five playable worlds completely free, which is about a month’s worth of gameplay, whilst other worlds cost a small fee to unlock. The ads are optional, with in-game rewards as incentives, and everything available through in-app purchases can be obtained through normal gameplay without paying a penny. So players can terraform ‘til their hearts content, without being pressurised into parting with cash. That sounds like a pretty good deal to us.

Dig deeper, learn more
You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to play TerraGenesis, but if you want to dig a little deeper into the ideas behind terraforming, there are The Archives. It’s a treasure trove of information explaining the science and ethics behind this hypothetical approach to space colonisation, as well as its influence on popular culture. It isn’t an essential part of gameplay, just a bonus for those curious cosmonauts.

Life finds a way
A fairly new addition to the game, Biospheres give you even more god-like power over the life that springs forth from your world. You can genetically engineer customised organisms and release them into the wild. Start with microbes, then plants, then herbivores and carnivores, splicing individual genes to ensure that each species is adapted for your world’s environment. With literally millions of possible organisms, you can build an entire ecosystem. But be careful – the addition or removal of the wrong species could bring the whole house of cards collapsing down on itself.

If you want to terraform your way around galaxies both real and imagined, TerraGenesis offers a challenging and engaging simulation to do just that. Having won over fans on iOS, it’s just received a release on Android too. The latest update, ‘Historical Earths’, even lets you play with time. Engage with everything from cavemen to dinosaurs across a bundle of new planets. Be wary of WorldKillers, though; this host of disasters, ranging from meteoroids to rare diseases, might just throw a fatal spanner in the works.

5 reasons why you need to play TapTap Heroes!

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 20th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

TapTap Heroes is an all-new idle RPG for iOS and Android that will take you on a breathtaking, colorful adventure. With endless battles and bountiful rewards, there’s a lot to uncover in this action-packed title from Ajoy Lab. There’s quite a bit to TapTap Heroes, so we figured we’d give you a rundown of the top reasons to give the game a try. Off we go!

It’s easy to get started, but there are a lot of layers hidden inside

TapTap Heroes is an idle game, which means the mechanics are pretty easy to dive into from the get-go. You can get started by simply tapping your way through battles, but as you grow more familiar with the game’s mechanics, you’ll find that there’s actually a good deal of strategy in there, too. You’ll need to build a balance team from over 200 heroes, learning which characters work together best. Plus there’s hundreds of weapons, skills, and equipment to discover and pair together. The possibilities are nigh endless.

The art is fantastic

While many mobile games suffer from cluttered UIs and information overload, TapTap Heroes features a streamlined interface that doesn’t skimp on color or design. The character designs are unique and showcase each hero’s distinct personality. Rather than more of the same, TapTap Heroes stands out on its own.

An endless stream of events and quests keeps things interesting

Developer Ajoy Lab is committed to providing a continuing stream of content for TapTap Heroes beyond the game’s debut this week. Expect to find weekly events and daily quests that offer exciting, limited-time chances to earn rare rewards and high-rank heroes.

There are rich multiplayer options

When you’ve had your fill of the game’s single-player game, TapTap Heroes has plenty of multiplayer activities to keep you busy. Compete against other players in the Arena to make your way through the rankings, or cooperate with your fellow adventures and join a Guild to take down Raid Bosses in epic battles.

There are no free-to-play hijinks

Perhaps most importantly, TapTap HeroesIs not pay to win. VIP features are set behind a premium paywall, but you can access them for free by levelling up your account if you don’t feel like investing cash in the game. Other than that, you won’t be limited to timers or any other free-to-play frustrations.

Ready to get started? You can find TapTap Heroes on the App Store and Google Play right now.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 18th, 2018

One of the East’s largest MMOJRPGs on PC, Dragon Nest is getting set to launch in North America on mobile as Dragon Nest M. The game has been specifically optimised and built from the ground up for the new platform, and if you’re curious to dive in be sure to pre-register for the game ahead of its launch this May.

Dragon Nest M is set to feature the same 3D adventuring actions series veterans have come to expect, with a story set against a familiar world and familiar gameplay. There are a few slight differences however. The mobile version will feature a no-lock battle system, for instance, letting you combine your skills freely during fights as in the PC version.

An MMORPG is no good without any multiplayer features, and Dragon Nest M is set to have people covered. Dungeons are the best example, allowing you to fight side-by-side with others before battling the big boss in a way that works for you. You can also build or join a Guild, fighting as one with your Guild members to conquer and save the continent of Altera once more.

Can’t wait to see what’s new for yourself? Pre-registration for Dragon Nest M is now open for those who want to get set for the game’s launch this May. Doing so means you’ll receive exclusive rewards and gifts unavailable anywhere else. Rewards that provide a little boost for those craving a slight advantage when first starting out.
