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?

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

+ 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.'

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?"

CSR Racing 2, or CSR2, as it likes to call itself, has finally arrived. The follow-up to the immensely popular drag racing game CSR Racing is the first release from NaturalMotion since the studio's acquisition by Zynga in early 2014.

That takes care of the "why you should care" part. Along with what NaturalMotion is calling "beyond console quality" visuals, CSR Racing 2tinkers with the formula of its predecessor just enough to stake out some of its own turf.

How to get coins faster in Rodeo Stampede

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 28th, 2016

There comes a time in a cowboy or cowgirl's life when all the riding and lassoing skills in the world aren't enough. You're going to need some cold, hard cash to keep your sky zoo expanding in Rodeo Stampede.

Alas, until you really get the hang of being both an ace animal tamer and a zoo tycoon, you're probably going to find your virtual pocket empty on occasion. It can't be helped, because the main ways for earning coins are completing missions and opening your sky zoo to the public, and both have their limits.

How to out-do Cam Newton in Can You Dab?

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 28th, 2016

The thing about dance crazes is that you're never really sure when they've run their course. Take the Dab, for instance. Propelled by its adoption as the touchdown celebration of choice for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, the Dab seemed like it was so 2015.

And then Can You Dab? came out and suggested that maybe we shouldn't shovel dirt on the Dab's grave just yet. This insanely simple game has seen quite a swell in popularity since its release, even though there's really not that much to it.

Is there cross-platform play in slither.io?

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

So you've sunken plenty of hours into crawling around in slither.io on your iPhone or iPad. You've got your stories of tragedy and triumph, the times you coiled four snakes at one time balanced out by the others when you had a length of more than 30,000 and some little jerk swerved in front of you at the last second.

You've even followed our adviceand practiced the art of self-sacrifice so that you can play with a friend, since the ability to choose your own server still hasn't made it into the game yet. But let's say you have other mates without iOS devices? Is there a way to play with them too?

In Rodeo Stampede, honing your skills so you can jump from animal to animal and outrun the herd as long as possible is only half the fun. Once you've tamed a few animals, you can bring them home with you.

To live in your floating zoo in the sky, of course! We're not even making that up.

NinjAwesome: Tips and tricks to be a more awesome ninja

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 23rd, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Sorry about that headline, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that GameResort would not have named its game NinjAwesome without expecting some of that. It is, in fact, pretty awesome the way it combines an endless runner and old school arcade style action, so the adjective is properly used here.

This isn't a complicated affair by any means, but perfecting your ninja skills does take a little practice. If only some way the wisdom of ninjas through the ages could be transmitted to those who seek to utilize those arts in the present ...

Bonecrusher: Tips, tricks and hints for higher scores

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 20th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

There's nothing too subtle about Bonecrusher, the latest game to make an impression on the App Store charts with Crossy Road-esque visuals and simple gameplay. It's crush or be crushed, requiring quick reflexes so you can be somewhere else when the spikes start dropping.

Maybe it's a thoughtful, implied disquisition on the inevitability of death. More likely, it's just fun, fast-paced arcade style action that anyone can pick up and play without needing to know all that much.

How to recruit more warriors in Adventure Company

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 16th, 2016

Questing for good, for the betterment of all mankind, has its place. Adventuring for fun and profit, though, is where it's at.

That's exactly the mindset you'll need to succeed at Adventure Company, the team-based action RPG from Foursaken Media. Yes, the same folks who brought you War Tortoisewould now like to take you to a more conventional type of warfare, if by conventional you mean 60 different character classes, a wide variety of different weapons and skills, and fantasy enemies of every kind.

6 retro games that should be revived on mobile

Posted by Simon Reed on January 8th, 2016

Games were better in the old days, right? Well, some were - others are probably best forgotten. Like most Java games for example.

148Apps wants to look at the best of the past though. Specifically which retro titles deserve to be dusted down and given new life on mobile, and why they'd work well on the small screen.
