If you have a passing interest in mobile games, you're likely playing Clash Royale. Like, right now. Gah, you just let that Hog Rider smash your tower because you were too busy reading this! Amateur.

Royal Mumble is brought to you by the most despicable cast of characters Pocket Gamer and 148Apps has to offer. That's Glen Fox, Editor of 148Apps, and Alex Rennie, one of those annoying salesmen who pester you with constant calls and email follow-ups.

He does have an amusing Mancunian accent that's reminiscent of Karl Pilkington though. Worth tuning in for that alone.

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.

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.

How to counter the balloon in Clash Royale

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 28th, 2016

Balloons are incredibly dangerous. They're airborne, fast, and deal massive damage to your towers if you don't bring them down quickly.

And that's the trick to bringing down a Balloon - get a ranged unit on it as quickly as possible. If you're fast enough, Spear Goblins, Archers, or Minions can get it down before it gets close to your tower.

How to counter the Baby Dragon in Clash Royale

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 28th, 2016

The Baby Dragon does decent splash and point damage, has a good amount of health, and is an airborne unit. This makes him an incredibly useful asset for most builds.

Countering it isn't easy though. While Archers and Spear Goblins are pretty good at dealing with most air units, the splash damage from its fireballs make short work of them if you just drop them down.
