What mobile games are we looking forward to in the second half of 2018? - Emily's picks

Posted by Emily Sowden on July 11th, 2018

2018 has been a bit of a mix in mobile gaming. We've had some real gems like Oddmar, Candleman, and Dandara, and we've had some disappointments, but what about the future?

These upcoming games have me excited for a number of different reasons, and some of them are a little – er – weird. Though it's easy to just focus on what we know is coming and what we know we're going to get, it's much more fun to look forward and speculate on what we don't know, eh?

No? Just me? Well, we'd best get to it then.

Vainglory 5v5: Everything you need to know about the new game mode

Vainglory just got bigger.

Super Evil Megacorp made its mobile MOBA into one of the leaders in its genre by concentrating on 3v3 matches that took many of the aspects people would expect to find andreducing them down to better suit touchscreen devices. But phones and tablets have come a long way since the game first launched, and gamers' expectations have risen as well.

Thus, Vainglory 5v5 is now a thing. Designed with extensive feedback from the game's community, the idea is that it builds upon what players already like and adds an extra layer of strategy and excitement. Super Evil has already made it clear that the new mode is the future of competitive play, so even though 3v3 is sticking around, everyone will want to brush up on the newer, bigger gameplay.

Arena of Valor Guide - The Best Heroes to Support the Team

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 9th, 2018

Arena of Valor might just be the best MOBA on mobile, and a ton of people are playing it. The only problem is, everyone wants to play as a carry or other high damage dealing character. While I get the appeal of wanting to lay waste to the enemy team like a perfect killing machine, the key to victory is about having a quality and balanced team, which might require you to play more of a support role. These characters aren’t quite as straightforward as high damage dealers, so check out this handy guide to pick the right support character for you:

A Star Wars MOBA is a great idea, but this game feels pretty sloppy compared to other entries in the genre.

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: DON'T DOTA
Titan Brawl wants to be the next big MOBA-inspired game on mobile, but its in-game action, menu navigation, and free-to-play system are all not quite as elegant as they should be.

Ace of Arenas is a MOBA perfectly designed for mobile

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 25th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.
