Moncage review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 23rd, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: CLEVER CUBE
Moncage’s ambitious puzzle design would be way more frustrating if not for the game’s best-in-class hint system.

By Campbell Bird on November 16th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: A SHADOW OF ITSELF
This shadowy platformer peaks early and then stretches itself too far for its own good.

Sparklite review

By Campbell Bird on November 10th, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: NEEDS A TUNE UP
While fun enough for what it is, Sparklite’s component parts don’t fit together as well as they should and it mobile version has some key issues holding it back.

By Campbell Bird on November 5th, 2021

This text-driven adventure is charming and fun, though perhaps a little too light considering the asking price.

Bloodshore review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on November 3rd, 2021
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: DEAD ON ARRIVAL
Bloodshore is a somewhat middling FMV experience that buries its most fascinating bits along its margins.

Dark Nights with Poe and Munro review

By Campbell Bird on November 1st, 2021
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: CONFUSING CHATTER
This FMV spin-off adventure struggles to do anything interesting or even consistent with its firmly established and intriguing premise.

5 reasons why The Lord of the Rings remains the most exciting fantasy franchise

Posted by 148Apps Staff on November 24th, 2021
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

When Peter Jackson adapted The Lord Of The Rings into a blockbusting, Oscar-winning movie trilogy, he achieved the impossible. Although JRR Tolkien’s magnum opus had long since established itself as the definitive, most influential tale in fantasy literature, its size, complexity and vast mythology led many to assume it was unfilmable.

Jackson and his co-writers, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, had other ideas, however, and their epic adaptations (released from 2001-2003) were made with such reverence and affection for the source material that they rapidly became every bit as beloved as the novels.

The success of the movie franchise quickly led to a swathe of officially licensed games, with notable highlights including: The Lord of the Rings: Middle-earth Defense and Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Even today, nearly twenty years after the release of Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Ring, players can continue to experience the legendary director’s vision of Middle-earth thanks to the recent launch of The Lord Of The Rings: Rise To War for mobile.

To celebrate the upcoming anniversary of The Fellowship of the Ring, we’ve explored why Middle-earth remains fantasy’s ultimate destination for gamers…

Everything you need to know about Kingdom Two Crowns: Norse Lands

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: KINKDOM :: Read Review »

This week, one of the absolute best real-time strategy games for mobile got a big new update. Kingdom Two Crowns now offers a new campaign type for purchase, and it puts you in the saddle of ruling over a Norse kingdom. I spent quite a bit of time with this new expansion, entitled Norse Lands, to see what kinds of things it offers beyond the base game. For the most part, it gives a new coat of paint to what is already a fantastic game, but there are a few twists it puts on the base game to make it a worthy pickup for anyone who enjoyed it.

The first thing to note about Norse Lands is it isn't free. This expansion is the first paid add-on for the game and it costs $ 3. For that price, you unlock access to start a new kingdom inspired by Viking culture and lore. A couple of things to note about this unlock before you even start playing it: This introduction of a fourth biome to the game doesn't coincide with expanded save slots, so if you've been managing kingdoms in all three of the base game's modes, you'll have to get rid of one to start Norse Lands. Secondly, the minimal UI in Kingdom Two Crowns might make it difficult to understand how to start a game using the new expansion. To access it, make sure to swipe over to Norse Lands when you see the new game title card to make the switch official.

Apple Arcade: Ranked - Top 25 [Updated 11.17]

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 17th, 2021

In case you missed it, I am on a quest to rank every Apple Arcade game there is.

Over a year into the Apple Arcade experiment, I’m adjusting my approach to these rankings to make it a bit less cumbersome to update and read. For the most part, this means the number of updates on previously released games will decrease, and the text below each entry will be kept to a brief-yet-accurate justification for its positioning.

This has less to do with the pace of Apple Arcade releases and more to do with the fact that the general quality of games on the service simply isn’t what it should be. In the time that one release comes to the service, multiple high quality games hit the App Store that you don’t have to pay monthly upkeep for. Unless something drastic changes with the service, my opinion on it probably won’t change much. With the most recent update bringing older established titles to the service, Arcade is certainly the strongest it has ever been, but additional shakeups like this will need to keep happening to finally sell me on the service.

Anyway, on with the ranking updates:

How to summon and defeat the Twins in Terraria

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on November 10th, 2021

The Twins in Terraria are playing out the Eye of Cthulhu’s evil twin fantasy. The Twins are the more difficult Hardmode version of Eye of Cthulhu. They are grouped with the other two mechanical bosses – The Destroyer and the Skeletron Prime, forming the mechanical trio in Hardmode.

The Twins are basically two Eyes of Cthulhu bound by a piece of string. The upper one ( with the red iris) is Retinazer and the lower twin (with the green iris) is Spazmatism.
