It's time to take a look at the best games in a particular mobile genre again. This time we're checking out the cream of the platforming crop. Last time we looked at the best third and first person shooters on the App Store, and you can check that out at this link.
As is often the case, this was a tough list to come up with. There are hundreds of ace platformers out there, and narrowing them down to the finest took some guts. But it also means we might have had to leave your favorite off. If that's happened, then ensure you make the case for whatever game you believe should have been included in the comments at the bottom of the article.
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.
Gather 'round 148Apps friends. It's time for our App Store discount roundup. It's a firecracker of a week in bargain games and you won't want to miss out. Some solid sims appear on this week's list, as well as some of the finest indie games you'll find on iOS devices. Let's dive in!
Sci-fi puzzler The Talos Principle arrived on the App Store this week. The game, which tells the tale of a newly awokened robot, is a philosophical story of what it means to be human, while the player explores over 100 different areas in a beautiful 3D space.
The game is published by Devolver Digital, who has a bounty of other fine indie titles on iOS. Here are seven of the best.
Downwell is an awesome game and that's all down to a combination of the simple concept and extremely well-designed mechanics.
The thing is, it takes a good while before these mechanics sink in and you'll need to experiment with what's possible within the game's rules.
Well, 148Appsis here tohelp give you a kickstart. Here we'll guide you through the hidden mechanics and share tips to help you venture further down the well.
There were a lot of really cool and interesting games on display at this year's Game Developers Conference, which made narrowing down this list extremely difficult. Just because a game isn't featured here doesn't mean it didn't impress me, but if you happened to be in San Francisco last week and saw an iOS game you'd like to mention then by all means please do so in the comments below.
And so, let's take a gander at 148Apps' top picks from GDC 2015.
So Downwell. Holy crap.
Ojiro Fumoto's GDC showpiece is one part roguelike, another part Metroid, and yet another part Cave Story, which is every bit as fantastic as it sounds.
The basic idea is that you control a character who can run left and right, jump, and shoot straight down while in the air. The catch is that there's a finite amount of ammo available, and it only refills when you land. The other catch is that if you die, it's back to the beginning. Pair that setup with falling down a seemingly endless (and randomly generated) vertical shaft and being able to purchase or find upgrades and you've got the makings of one great action game. And it is a great action game; the handful of minutes I got to spend playing it made that perfectly clear.
The only unfortunate thing about Downwell is that we're going to have to wait until July to get our hands on it.
