Obviously that kicked our brains into gear here at 148App's palatial research unit. We got to thinking about how Blizzard's massive franchises could make it onto the App Store. And then we wrote down those thoughts. What you're looking at now is the culmination of that endeavour.
If you've got your own suggestions as to how Blizzard could squish its game down to pocket-sized, then be sure to let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article. First though, let's find out what we thought about the obstacles and challenges that are waiting for Blizzard.
Our mission here at 148Apps is pretty simple - we want to make sure that you're playing the best iPhone and iPad games in the world. Which is why, every Friday, we like to give you an insight into the incredible games that are set to rock your world in the next seven days. Call it a headstart on the rest of the world, if you'd like.
It's possible next week is going to be a little thin on the ground when it comes to new releases, although we're often pleasantly surprised on weeks like that when something amazing sneaks out at the last second. That's not to say the games we've picked aren't great, just that there aren't that many of them.
Getting mountain climbing games right is difficult, but it's always good to see another studio trying. This one doesn't take itself too seriously, but there's a lot of swinging, plenty of grabbing, and more than a few stranded climbers that you're going to have to help to safety. It's bright and cheery, and if it gets its controls right it may well become a sleeper hit in 2019.
This one's a strategic card game with a silly core concept - it's about either trying to steal or protect a small flock of sheep. You pick to be the shepherd or the poacher, and it's up to you to make it back home with two out of three sheep in your possession. You're going to be playing online against real players, which should give this one the energy it needs to succeed.
This one's a little more simple. It takes the bones of a shooter, wraps them around a stuff-stacking device, and then lets you go nuts. You're not just mowing down waves of incoming alien fighters, you're piling up their shattered remains as a taunt to any other space monsters that might want to come and have a go. Wow, that's actually really dark when you type it out.
The first few days of the year are always a bit of a write-off, but we're getting back up to speed here at 148Apps. And when we're at speed, we like to make sure that you're all up to date with the games you're going to be playing soon. Which is exactly what this list of the top games coming out next week intends to do.
We've checked our records and sent out emails to the right people, and we reckon these four games are the finest that are going to hit the App Store over the next seven days. We might be wrong, but we think we've had our best stab at it - if you disagree though, do let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article.
2018 is so last year. Here at 148Apps we're all about 2019 now, and the exciting games that we're hopefully going to end up playing over the next 12 months. But what are those games, and why are we so excited about them? Well, that's where this list comes in - the top 6 games for iPhone and iPad that we're looking forward to in 2018.
Obviously we're looking forward to way more than six games, but these are the cream of the crop - the ones that we're champing at the bit to play. That means our picks might not quite line up with yours, and if that's the case do let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the article.
Every time Friday rolls around here at 148Apps, we like to make sure you're au fait with the awesome digital gaming experiences that are going to land on the App Store over the upcoming seven days. Or, in less florid language, we tell you the top 5 games for iPhone and iPad that are coming out next week.
Okay, so we realise we usually do this on a Thursday, but it's been a crazy sort of a week here at 148Apps, and we wanted to make sure that we really had found the five best games for you to choose a game of the week from. We reckon we've done that now, so that's pretty cool.
We've included download links so you can grab the games from the App Store, and explained why we think the games deserve their places on this shortlist. How do you pick a winner? Well it couldn't be easier. All you need to do is post a comment at the bottom of the article letting us know your choice. Or tweet us (or leave us a comment on Facebook) using the hashtag #148GOW with the name of your choice.
Obviously if you think we've missed anything from the list, you can let us know that in the comments as well. Now though, without any more typing, here are the games.
It's been a funny few days here at 148Apps, thanks mainly to Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and all of the sales that have been happening on the App Store because of them. Hopefully though normal-ish service is going to resume this week. And since we missed it last Friday, we thought we'd let you know about the exciting upcoming games you're going to be playing this week.
We've included links so you can pre-order the games on the App Store where we've got them. That way you'll get a notification when the game is live and be able to grab it quicker than most. If you consider yourself an App Store sleuth then be sure to let us know of any games you've spotted that are heading our way in the next seven days.
The end of the week has rolled around again, which means it's time for us to look forward to the games you're going to be playing over the next seven days. We've got the return of a mobile gaming legend next week, as well as a couple of other really interesting looking experiences.
And if that wasn't enough we've stuck pre-order links in so you can have the game ready to download the second it lands on the App Store. We're good like that. So good that, if you think we've missed anything and you tell us in the comments, we almost certainly won't collapse in a ball and start weeping.
It's Friday, it's nearly the weekend, and it's time to look ahead to some of the awesome iPhone and iPad games you're going to be playing next week. And there are some really interesting titles headed to the App Store over the next seven days.
Sure, there aren't loads of them, but we've got a couple of puzzlers, an adorable idle game, and a super-shiny looking shooter, so there's probably going to be something that catches your eye on the list.

Thursday is when we reveal the shortlist for our game of the week award. It's one of our favorite days of the week too, because it's the one where we spend most of our time playing new games. After doing our due-diligence, we've picked what we think are the five best games that hit the App Store over the past seven days.
Now it's up to you to pick which of them should be the winner of our prestigious game of the week award. You're probably wondering how you go about doing that though, right? Well, the simplest way is to leave a comment on this article. Or, if you're more of a social media butterfly, you can let us know your choice on Twitter or Facebook. Make sure you use the hashtag #148GOW when you do though, so we can count all the votes.
You might not have heard, but over the weekend at BlizzCon 2018, Blizzard revealed that its classic dungeon-crawling franchise Diablo is set to hit mobile sometime in the not-too-distant future. That's a pretty big reveal, and as you might be able to imagine a lot of people have a lot of opinions about the game coming to iPhone.
There's a lot of information flying about, as you'd expect, so we thought it was important to make sure you had all the facts in one handy place. Thus, we have created this list of the top 6 most important things you need to know about Diablo Immortal.
Every Friday here at 148Apps we like to prepare you for next week. Not in a weird way though, we just like making sure you're as excited as we are about the new games that are going to be landing on the App Store in the next seven days.
Because we're kind, we've also included pre-order links where applicable, so if you like the sound of one of our suggestions, you can get it ready and raring to go before it's even been released. Which is pretty awesome.
If you've got your own suggestions then feel free to let us know about them in the comments section. Oh, and if you want to check out some of the awesome games that came out this week, and pick which of them should be our game of the week, you can do that by clicking right here.
Thursday always seems to sneak up on us, doesn't it? Whether it's because we're not the sort of people who are always glaring at clocks, or because we're the sort of people who can't remember what day it is remains to be seen. But here we are anyway, with another 5 top picks for our game of the week award.
What's the game of the week award? Well, it's your chance to pick which game that came out over the past seven days is the best. We've created a shortlist, but it's up to you, our stylish and determined readers, to choose which of them is going to walk away with the hypothetical trophy.
But how? That's easy. You can either leave a comment on this article with the name of your choice, or let us know on Facebook or Twitter which game you think should win. Remember to use the hashtag #148GOW if you're casting your vote on social media though, otherwise it won't be checked.
And we've discovered it for you. You don't need to wander through the App Store scratching your head, because we've even included links where they're applicable so you can pre-order the game and then forget about it until you get a notification on your phone telling you that it's ready to download.
Another Thursday has snuck up on us, which means it's time for us to show you which games are in the running for this week's 148Apps game of the week award. It's a really good week as well, so we expect the competition to be tough. If you've got a horse in the race, or a game you love in the list, you should definitely make sure you vote for it.
How do you vote? Why it could not be simpler. You can leave us a comment at the bottom of this article with your pick. Or you can get in touch via Facebook or Twitter and let us know which game you think should win. Make sure you include the hashtag #148GOW though, or your vote won't count.
