These are the top 5 best iPhone games like Fortnite

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 9th, 2021

Fortnite has been the big hitter in mobile gaming this year, and it's not hard to see why. Thanks to some excellent marketing, and a polished experience that almost anyone can enjoy, it's really taken the App Store by storm.

But there are other battle royale experiences out there if you want to try something different. Some of them are terrible though, so we thought it'd be a good idea to round up what we think are the very best games like Fortnite for iPhone.

We've included links that will let you download the games as well, we're good like that. If you think we've got our suggestions wrong, then feel free to add your own in the comments at the bottom of the article. And don't forget to check out all the other lists on the site by clicking here. Now, without further ado, let's get on with the choices.

The top 5 best iPhone games like Pokemon Go

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 8th, 2021

Pokemon GO is still the, if you'll excuse the pun, go-to game if you want some AR action on your phone. But it's not the only choice out there, and if you've got a hankering for something a bit different, then your eyes might already have started wandering. Which is why we've written this list of the best iPhone games like Pokemon GO.

Some of them follow pretty similar templates, albeit with different franchises or concepts wrapped around them. But we've pulled a couple from leftfield as well, to give you some different options if that's what you're after. Our aim is to make sure everyone downloads at least one game from this list. We're nothing if not optimistic.

You've probably got your own suggestions about what games should be on this list. If that's the case, make sure you toss them into the comments section at the bottom of the article. And if you click here you'll be able to check out all of our other awesome game lists as well. So that's pretty neat.

The top 5 best iPhone games like Starcraft

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 7th, 2021

Starcraft sits at the top of the RTS tree for a number of very good reasons. It also isn't on mobile, again, for a number of very good reasons. But that doesn't mean you can't find a way to indulge your sci-fi, competitive, massive, or engaging RTS desires if you know where to look.

Luckily, we do know where to look. Essentially it's our job, so we've trawled the App Store to find the best experiences that we think are going to at least sate your Starcraft cravings before you get back home to your PC where you can play properly.

We've chosen what we think are the finest games, but it's entirely possible that you disagree with us. If that's the case, then feel free to chuck your own suggestions in the comments section and get some discussion going. And if you're interested in content presented in list form, make sure you click this link and check out all the rest of the lists we've written.

The top 5 best iPhone games like The Room

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 6th, 2021

The Room has had a massive impact on the world of mobile gaming. Not only is it a brilliant adventure, it also shows how the touchscreen controls on your iPhone can be turned into something far more elegant and tactile than just a bunch of buttons. But what to do when you've finished playing through all four games in The Room saga?

That's why we've written this list. So that when it's time to put The Room down, you're not going to have to go cold turkey. The games on this list aren't just clones though, they build on the ideas of The Room and throw their own into the mix as well.

Obviously, if you've got your own suggestions, feel free to chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. And if you want to read more of the awesome lists we write on a weekly basis, you can check them out by clicking right here.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on March 23rd, 2021

In case you missed it, you can scratch that Farkle itch while helping to conserve natural wildlife with Farkle Safari from Polyworks Games. The fun and casual indie game came out in January, because what better way to kick off 2021 than by helping to save the planet?

In Farkle Safari, you play Farkle against eight different animals each across four regions around the globe. As you fight to prove your Farkle expertise in the Forest, Jungle, Ocean, and the Savanna, you can also collect cool custom dice sets and earn trophies for awesome achievements you can brag about to your pals. And if you’re not familiar with the dice game, a quick tutorial in the beginning will have you playing like a pro in no time.

Of course, becoming the Farkle Grand Champion isn’t what it’s all about, as the game is all about giving back - 10% of all proceeds gained from the game (including ads viewed and premium purchases) will go to charitable institutions like the World Wildlife Fund and the Rainforest Action Network, because who says you can’t roll the dice and help out Mother Nature at the same time?

You can do your part in saving the rainforest by downloading Farkle Safari on Google Play and on the App Store for free today, or visit the official website.

Posted by 148Apps Staff on March 9th, 2021
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Inch Sky brings Little Red Riding Hood, Belle, Rapunzel, Dorothy, Ariel, Thumbelina, and Alice to life in a hack-and-slash action role-playing game titled SinTales, which launched in the US and South East Asia on February 23rd. The game will be released in other territories soon.

SinTales follows the story of young treasure hunter Aurora as she finds herself entangled in a web of mystery on a quest to save her fallen brother. In a war between light and dark, players can discover the intricate backstories and rich histories of seven princesses that represent the seven colours of a rainbow, each with their own dark side.

SLOAN is a new app to help college students micro-manage their debt with ease

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Managing your student debt can be a daunting prospect, especially as you may be juggling loans from multiple lenders with varying interest rates. But getting on top of this long-term financial obligation is vital, not just to keep your bank balance and credit rating healthy, but – perhaps most importantly – for your peace of mind.

Easier said than done, of course, but a new app called SLOAN aims to give you all the tools needed to do it – and more. It’s the brainchild of founder Bryan Harris, whose personal experience repaying his student loans proved to be a eureka moment. After college, Harris had a six-figure debt, spread across five lenders, and just keeping track was almost impossible. Consolidating his loans made it easier to manage, but doing so meant paying more out each month, adding to the burden.

Lyxo, the light-based puzzler for mobile, lets you light up the dark

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 24th, 2021

Vienna-based independent game studio Emoak has just released its unique light-based puzzler for iOS and Android. Founded in 2014 by Tobias Sturn, the company is also the creative force behind the infinite climbing game Paper Climb, as well as the sandbox game Machinaero on iOS.

In Lyxo, players will need to guide rays of light through dark environments in a simple but striking Bauhaus-inspired design. The minimalist aesthetics blend nicely with the goal of the game, which is to avoid obstacles, create new sources of light, and light up designated targets by mixing and matching different colors. With its stirring soundtrack, the game aims to build and heighten an emotional connection between infinite darkness and the light.

EZ Estate lets you leave instructions for your loved ones, should the worst happen

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 23rd, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If you died tomorrow, would your loved ones know where to find the documents they need to handle all your affairs?

Understandably, most of us would rather leave the uncomfortable reality of such questions for another day. But the simple truth is, as Echo & the Bunnymen once sang, ‘nothing lasts forever’ – this year, in particular, has been a grim reminder of just how fragile life can be.
Developed by Young Jack LLC, EZ Estate seeks to take the stress out of planning for the dreaded ‘d’ word, however remote the prospect. It’s an all-in-one estate management app, collecting your important documents and instructions in one convenient place for your survivors’ benefit.

You might have already penned a will, but your life is bigger than the possessions you’ll leave behind and to whom; many of the details of your day-to-day affairs will be digitally, physically or mentally filed away, meaning your loved ones may have to contend with a confusing tangle of accounts, passwords and bills after you’re gone – and while they’re grieving. Plus, you may have other wishes you want to communicate; for example, does your family know who you’d like to be notified in the event of your death? What about who should (and shouldn’t) attend your funeral? And what sort of funeral would you like?

EZ Estate lets you easily store and pass on all the details you want to. It aims to be more comprehensive than any other ‘last request’ app on the market, and provides a range of subcategories for added clarity; categories include ‘important contacts’, ‘pets’, ‘gifts and personal property’, ‘personal documents’, ‘my financials’, ‘my funeral’ and ‘miscellaneous’. There’s a simple, clear audio guide to aid you with setting everything up, and a status update to ensure you don’t accidentally omit anything important. You can include helpful details about financial obligations such as bills, monthly outgoings and outstanding debts. For ease of use, or simply to add a personal touch, you can even upload video recordings to the app, directly communicating details you wish to pass on.

Some of those details, such as passwords and contacts – and perhaps where you’ve buried your treasure – may be sensitive and for-certain-eyes-only. That’s why EZ Estate makes sure all data is locally encrypted and password-protected on your device. It’s also stored in its encrypted form on the EZ Estate cloud servers, so you won’t lose everything should your mobile device go on the fritz, or walk-about.

As information stored with EZ Estate isn’t legally binding by itself, the app works best as part of a comprehensive plan arranged through a legal advisor. And there really is no time like the present to plan ahead. You can download EZ Estate for free from Google Play and the App Store today.

Celebrate the Christmas holidays with Pumpkinbutt's Halloween Dream's latest update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 23rd, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It's a festive time of year so even the farmer in Pumpkinbutt's Halloween Dream deserves a break from the nightmare he's perpetually trapped in right? Skyflyer Studio appears to agree since they've updated the game with forty new Christmassy levels.

However, even the naturally cheerful holidays can be a little terrifying it seems with this new batch of stages being called The Christmas Caverns, which hardly sounds like a relaxing time sitting around a cosy fireplace.

How Spotty Time can help you cut down on screen time

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 22nd, 2020

We’re living in the age of the smartphone, and having a portable, camera-equipped computer in your pocket 24/7 is brilliant – at least in theory. You can connect with the whole world, wherever you are; take and share photographs on the fly; instantly find answers to any question that pops into your head; and entertain yourself during life’s duller moments.

But social media platforms, mobile games and streaming services are designed to be as distracting as possible. That’s how most of them make money. The more time you sink into browsing and tapping their content, the better – for them. For us, the temptation to spend more time on our phones than on real-life connections and responsibilities is increasingly tough to resist. Various studies suggest this unhealthy relationship with our phones may play a part in rising levels of anxiety and depression – especially among the younger generation. So, how do we rebalance our usage?

Rhythm-based puzzler Vectronom offers a perfect mix up art, music, and 3D platforming

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 17th, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Music and art collide in Vectronom, a rhythm-based 3D platformer that may have missed your radar if you were too busy soaking up the sun during its initial release last year.

While the game doesn’t blatantly tell you to stay indoors, it does encourage you to bop to the beat in the comfort of your own home by immersing you in a puzzle platformer in isometric view. Your goal is to get from Point A to Point B by navigating obstacles that change in sync with the beat, so you’ll be forced to observe from a distance, memorize how the patterns shift, and then take the plunge. You’ll need to have the chops to solve environment-specific riddles that often require you to time your movements to the rhythm of the music.
