Gordon Ramsay DASH: Guide to upgrading appliances and food

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 1st, 2016
+ 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.'

5 popular free fertility apps

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 30th, 2016

There was a good article this week in The Independent about how more women are using fertility appsas a de facto form of contraception. It's apparently not working too well, leading to numerous unwanted pregnancies.

That's not a good thing. But the fact remains that apps to track a woman's menstrual cycle are probably as popular as they've ever been. A glance at the section of the App Store devoted to Health and Fitness bears this out, as among the fitness trackers and weight loss aids are plenty of fertility apps.

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?"

Gear-grinding puzzle title Inner Circle is now available on iOS systems

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

If you saw our post earlier this month announcing the imminent release of ZPlay’s new creation, Inner Circle, you’ll be happy to know that it’s now available on the App Store.

Established in 2010, developer and publisher ZPlay have taken the mobile gaming industry by storm, attracting an impressive collection of over 400 million users to date and achieved top 10 ratings across the globe.

With its digestible concept, pretty graphics and quirky soundtrack, the title is a sure-fire hit with all generations, from young kids to grandparents alike – think Tetris, for the 21st Century.

To succeed within gameplay, the idea is to rotate the outer circle to align with the ‘inner circle’, by tapping the screen to flip the colours on the wheel and swiping to shrink it in order to receive more points.

Loss occurs when players don’t manage to align the colours successfully before the circles meet, which gets more and more difficult to avoid as you progress through the game’s impressive array of 250 levels.

With a number of sweet features including a night-mode that protects sleepy eyes from bright shades by altering the colour scheme for varied lighting, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through as many levels as they can on an indefinite scale, Inner Circle has a lot to offer.

Presently, you can catch the release, for free, from the App Store for your Apple device – so, what’re you waiting for?

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.

How to get started with live.ly

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 27th, 2016

One could be forgiven for thinking that there are already plenty of streaming video apps out there. It's just that the App Store charts would insist that you're mistaken.

The recently released live.ly by musical.ly has shot straight to number one in the U.S., suggesting that there's room for another player in this segment after all. What is it offering that's different? That's what we're here to help with, as we dig into how to get started with live.ly and "broadcast your life as it happens."

Is there cross-platform play in slither.io?

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?

Five popular free apps to help you slim down for the summer

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 24th, 2016

Thanks to retail and advertising, we're used to thinking one season ahead. Here we are just a week into the summer and we're conditioned to start thinking about the fall.

Forget that. There's plenty of summer left, and that means you'll likely be hitting the pool, the beach, or some other place where you'll be more scantily clad than during other parts of the year. Is there still time to drop a few pounds before you don a swimsuit?

How to ride longer and tame more animals in Rodeo Stampede

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 24th, 2016

It's hard to accurately describe Rodeo Stampede to people who haven't seen it yet. It's like if someone took Crossy Roadand Disco Zoo and put them in a blender, yet with a unique game mechanic that's still simple and fun for anyone.

While there's more to it than just learning how to lasso animals, that's a pretty good place to start since you'll never be a sky zoo tycoon without befriending some animals first. With that in mind, here are some tips on how to ride longer and tame more animals to get you stampeding on your way.

NinjAwesome: Tips and tricks to be a more awesome ninja

+ 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 ...

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 22nd, 2016

If you’ve been known to frequent the Game of Dice title and have a penchant for that cute little Japanese cat (who is apparently actually a little girl…), JoyCity’s latest update of the game will be right up your street.

The general gist of the game centres on a table-based board game situation, where players must outsmart enemies using a variety of different cards and skill sets, including Boost Items and Characters who work to bankrupt opponents of their JOY.
