Ace of Arenas is a mobile MOBA that's been built from the ground up with its chosen platform in mind.
For a start, the touchscreen controls don't try and simulate mouse play. So, instead of tapping the screen to move your character and use your skills, you use your thumb and perform a series of swipes.
It's also much faster in pace thanks to the new Fast and Furious Mode, which grants you super buffs and increased movement speed to ensure matches last under 10 minutes.
We reached out to Gaea Mobile's Jason Dahlberg to learn more about the development of Ace of Arenas, and how the developer managed to so successfully port the MOBA experience onto mobile.

Mystic Castle is a brand new iOS text-based adventure that straddles a ton of different genres, but at its core is an RPG citybuilder.
The story goes that you're an alchemist who bravely heads into a dangerous dungeon to build a thriving underground city. To achieve this, you generate gold, hire farmers to gather resources, and then build a bunch of handy buildings.
Once you're set you train up your own army of tough warriors to explore an enormous world made up of 10 different maps and 500 areas. That's already ridiculously big, but you can grow it further by purchasing an expansion pack as an IAP.
On their adventures, your warriors will take on a variety of monsters, assault strongholds, and encounter random events. These can pop up at any time, and provide fun tasks like learning skills from a passing tutor or loaning money to a tramp in return for potential future reimbursement.
With hundreds of achievements to collect, over 80 classes to train your warriors in, and that enormous game world we mentioned earlier, there's plenty of game here to keep you busy for a while.
So head on over to the App Store to get it right now for only 79p / 99c.

Boy has 148Apps got a treat in store for you. Today we recorded an off-the-cuff podcast in dedication to Clash Royale - a game that has caused a serious riff amongst a number of Steel Media team members.
Don't despair though, because it lead to this - the first EVER 148Apps Podcast, and we invite you to listen to it despite the fact it's technically terrible, commercially worthless, and full to the absolute brim of complete and utter drivel.
Also, as an extra bonus feature, check out the screenshots below for the full results of our two matches during the podcast and the secret three that happened afterwards in which I utterly thrashed co-host Alex Rennie. Poor Alex.

So, you’ve got Clash Royale. You find yourself playing it while on the toilet, walking the dog, watching TV, even over the dinner table. But you’re not amazing at it yet, and you just have to win that next battle before you go to sleep.
Fear not! For I have taken the time to play this game intensely (for seven whole days) and will share my wisdom. Wisdom that has been gained by various means: Losing a lot of games in a row (and throwing my phone across the room many times), reading other Clash Royale guides, refreshing the Reddit page every 10 minutes, and experimenting with my deck and tactics.
In the interest of fairness, I will disclose that I spent £7.99 on a pack of gems after the first hour of play. Don’t all get angry though - I have a paying job and can afford such luxuries. Plus I wanted to thrash all the weaker players who basically can’t afford such largesse.
It worked - I rapidly moved onto Arena 3, taking many a three crown win with me. However, the fun stopped there. I came across players who actually had tactics, good cards, and more importantly, trolled me excellently when they were winning. The number of ‘crying face emojis’ I had sent to me as a Giant is about to smash my King Tower… well you can probably understand my frustration.
So I researched for my own selfish reasons - I want to be the best in my clan. But, because I’m a nice guy, I’m sharing my findings with you.
I’ll preface - I’m at Arena 5, so don’t be thinking you can rock in here as an Arena 7 player and think this stuff is useful - it’s almost certainly terrible advice for very good players and you can take it with a pinch of salt. For the 99%, it’s invaluable and you will be praising the ground I walk on after reading these delightful tips.
