To kick off Clash Royale's twelfth season, we thought it would be fun to start a new feature for the game where we rank cards. And what better cards to start with than the oh-so-rare Legendaries that can really transform the kinds of decks you can make in the game.

For the record, these cards are being ranked based on their overall utility in a variety of different deck types. Don't assume you can make a deck using all the top picks here and do well. You still need to make a balanced deck to see victory, just know that the higher tier cards here can help you do that more easily.

Now, for the rankings:

Using your phone in a protest

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 1st, 2020

I can't write about games today. There is a struggle happening in the streets right now and it needs everyone's attention. Here's some good info on how you can use your iOS device safely amidst a protest.

Know your rights

If law enforcement attempts to seize your phone and search through it, you have no obligation to unlock the phone for them. Police only have the right to seize your device if they place you under arrest, have probable cause, or a warrant. Regardless of how the seizure takes place though, they are not then entitled to the information on it.

You may have seen a our new Clash Royale guide kicking around on the site lately, and that's because I decided to check back in on the game after years away from it. Turns out, it's still a pretty incredible game, and Supercell has done quite a bit to try and tone down the more frustrating aspects of the game in my time away from it.

As a result, I'm all the way back in on the game and having a blast. If you've been curious about getting back into Clash Royale, or never found the time to get into in the first place, here are some tips to help you get into the game while avoiding some of its more frustrating aspects.

The Ultimate iPad Setup

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 29th, 2020

iPads are awesome. We all know this. But an iPad all on its own can sometimes just feel like a big, unwieldy phone that sits in some corner, only to be dusted off when you need a way to watch Netflix on a flight.

It doesn’t have to be this way, though. With a little additional investment, you can kit out your tablet so that it can serve as your primary computer both for productivity and entertainment purposes.

How do I know this? Well, I’ve been an iPad owner for years, and have written the vast majority of everything I’ve ever posted to this site using one. With all of this in mind, I’ve put together a handy little guide on things to pick up (or skip) when looking to make your iPad the absolute best it can be for everything.

For the purposes of this guide, I’ll be speaking about items generally, as your wants and needs around said items might shift depending on which model of iPad you have. I’ll also be sharing my personal favorite picks, but those are all based on how well they work with an iPad Pro 11 (2018), as it's my current iPad of choice.

The best card combos in Clash Royale - 2020 Edition

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 28th, 2020

I haven't played Clash Royale in years, but have recently dipped my toe back into it and am having a lot of fun (despite really souring on Supercell's brand of f2p design).

I'm still getting caught up to speed on the new cards and modes that have been added to the game in my time away, but I've been finding a lot of success with decks that I'm building now, so I thought I'd made an updated list of good card synergies I've found. See below:

Quick tips for Brawl Quest, brand new on Android and iOS

Posted by 148Apps Staff on January 29th, 2020

Looking for a fight? Brawl Quest captures all the fun of retro arcade beat-‘em-ups, but chucks in a more modern, cartoonish style and some wacky characters to boot. Just released by indie developer ThinkBIT, the game features a roster of playable fighters with which to clean the steets of bad guys and bosses in over 50 stages.

These helpful tips will ensure you get the most out of your brawls, whether you want to maximise your coin count or recruit some pets pronto.

Remember your fighter types: Brawl Quest features rock-paper-scissors fighter types, with each type having either a 15% damage advantage or disadvantage against another type. Before you enter a stage, check the suggested fighter type to send in based on the sort of thugs awaiting you

Log in daily: After completing area 2-1, you’ll unlock daily quests. These are a quick and easy way to gain additional gold coins and gems, which can be used to level up and unlock new content, including pets (more on them below). Even just logging into Brawl Quest regularly gets you some freebies; the premium shop has a free loot box given away to all players daily, providing you’re there to collect it

Get your paws on pets: Pets act as a sort of living talisman, imparting boosts to your fighters’ stats. Aim to get through area 2-6 as fast as you can to begin unlocking your own animal companions. We recommend saving up 200 gems to unlock a third pet slot

Dispatch your brawlers: Once you’ve completed area 2-10, you can start sending brawlers out on quests to bring back loot. Not all dispatches will be successful, but you can improve your brawlers’ chances by paying attention to their fighter type and level.

Top up your energy: If you’ve run out of energy, spend some coins at the vending machine for more, as well as other useful items for levelling up.

Put our advice into action and let those fists fly. Brawl Quest is out now for free on Android and iOS (coming out mid-February).

Kingdom Rush Vengeance Update Guide 3 - What you need to know about the Halloween Update

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 24th, 2019

Kingdom Rush: Vengeance now has gotten three updates. It started with the Subaquatic Menace back in February, followed by The Frozen Nightmare in May. And just yesterday, a Halloween update went live featuring three new stages, four new enemies, a premium hero, and a premium tower.

After playing through this latest update, I can safely say it’s the most satisfying content addition to the game so far. Read on for why that is.
