76. Beyond a Steel Sky

[img id="105661" alt=""]


Beyond a Steel Sky is the long-awaited follow-up to the cult classic adventure game Beneath a Steel Sky. You continue your adventure as Robert Foster, who this time is investigating the disappearance of a child after a violent attack in the game’s opening. Your investigation quickly brings you back to Union City, which has been transformed into a bright, technolocratic metropolis as a result of Foster’s actions in the first game. It is here you spend the majority of your time solving puzzles that involve item combinations, dialogue trees, and hacking.

Rank Explanation:

I really want to like Beyond a Steel Sky more than I do. At times, it can feel like Fallout or Mass Effect, but without all the crunchy stats and shooting, but the game is so laser-focused on being an adventure game such that its open 3D environments feel hollow and distracting. Some puzzle sections in the game also follow bizarre logic or are otherwise poor at communicating how you can or should interact with your environment to progress forward (even when using the in-game hint system). Since launch, Beyond a Steel Sky has seen several rounds of updates to fix its technical problems. Although it's not entirely free of the occasional weird visual bug or strange behavior, it is much more playable (and enjoyable) than it once was.

Apple Arcade is in trouble

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 1st, 2020

Yesterday, Bloomberg reported that Apple is disappointed in the performance of Apple Arcade and will be shifting their approach to the service by focusing on games that can retain subscribers and canceling other upcoming releases that don't fit this new vision.

Honestly, the only surprising thing about this news in my mind is the timing. Apple Arcade hasn't even been live for a year, and half of its existence has been admist a global pandemic, mass unemployment, and burgeoning civil unrest. If Apple was confident about its approach to its new games service, I would've thought they'd give it a little more time and leeway before shifting their approach.

I have been enjoying Apple Arcade and have been a loyal subscriber since it launched back in September. I've even given each game on the service a fair shake. But there's no denying that the service hasn't lived up to its promises.

The 5 Best Mobile Real Time Strategy Games

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 3rd, 2020

Real-time strategy games feel like they’d be a perfect fit for mobile, but they’re trickier to pull off that you might think. The traditional mold of base-building and micro management can work on touch screens, but needs to be carefully honed so that it doesn’t end up too overwhelming.

Few titles on the App Store get this right, but the games below are all nail it in their own, unique ways. Check them out. Oh, and click here to check out all the other great lists we’ve been making lately.

The Perfect Apps for your iPad

Posted by 148Apps Staff on February 12th, 2018

The apps which are available in the iOS App Store make the iPad more than just a smooth device that's fantastic for looking at photos and browsing the internet. If you are looking to write detailed notes, create drawings, plan projects or play games, here are some perfect apps that you will need for your iPad.


Paper is a drawing app, which is one of the trendiest iPad programs for good reasons. It’s fun and super simple to use. Over the years, it has included serious features such as, the option to make to-do lists and draw on photos. Many people find this app valuable for getting autographs. That’s simply because it is easy for them to export it as an image to a camera roll.


Using an iPad doesn't mean that you are limited to the Photos app for improving your snapshots. Pixelmator brings Photoshop-level tools like Clone, Level Adjustment Distort, and Repair to the iPad. You also have a big enough screen to make good use of them. The latest update added Magnetic Selection and Quick Select.

Marvel Unlimited

While speaking of Marvel, many comic fans who favor the publishing house that Stan Lee constructed may be better off with this app. Also, it has a $9.99 monthly subscription. This game packs many titles so you can learn more about Groot, Jessica Jones, Captain America and the rest of the characters filling the cinematic and televised Marvel universes.


Mind-mapping is the preparation of picturing complex ideas with a sequence of linked notes and images. Your best choice for making digital versions of these maps is MindNode. This app first gained popularity on the Mac. Today, it is still fancied on iOS. It's an outstanding mode to make the most out of that large screen on your iPad.


Responding and handling to all the email you get can be a real annoyance. However, with Spark, not only can you snooze messages to send later, but you can equally pin valuable emails to the app's screen so you don't ignore them.


The miracle of coloring books for adults, which many believe to be a stress reliever, has gone digital. Many people think that the fun in digital versions is to tap once to color in a section. But with Pigment at your disposal, this enables you to use a third-party stylus, Apple Pencil or even your finger to manually draw. Also, you don’t need to be worried about coloring over or outside of the lines.

Fantastical 2

This app was the first one to provide natural-language recognition. It enabled it to create events from picking out titles, bricks of text, times and locations. You can make great use of it for making calendar events by copying them in from other apps.

Besides these amazing apps, you can do a lot more on an iPad. For instance, there are games which do not require downloading an app to enjoy it. If you look at the slot games at Magical Vegas online casino, they can easily be played on an iPad. You will only need to connect it to your Wi-Fi connection and look for the site on Google. However, the above list was simply for you to get an idea of the perfect apps for your iPad!

After Almost 20 Years, the Zoombinis are Coming Back

Posted by Rob Rich on July 20th, 2015

The world was introduced to the Zoombinis for the first time back in 1996 with Logical Journey of the Zoombinis fromTERC (published by Brøderbund Software, back when they existed). The quirky learning puzzle game earned its fair share of supporters over the year - so much so that TERC recently reaquired the rights to the series and ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to remake it.

The gym can be an intimidating place at times. I’m now at a point where I’m pretty comfortable with my gym and my fitness levels (although they could always be improved!), but it’s taken a little while to get there. While I’ve had one personal training session with an expert who set me up with a good plan, much of it has come down to me figuring out what works best for me. That’s where a selection of iOS apps have really helped, both by providing me with useful advice and somewhere to store my workouts, and by giving me something to distract myself with between exercises. Here’s a look at a few of my recommendations.

Oh My Pixel! We Go Hands-on With The Knights of Pen & Paper 2nd Edition

Posted by Jessica Fisher on April 30th, 2015

I recently had a chance to play around with the upcoming Knights of Pen & Paper 2 from Paradox Interactive. I was a huge fan of the first game, so I had a lot of expectations going into it - and I wasn't disappointed. The game has gotten some serious upgrades including a sweet jump to 16bit graphics, new dynamically generated dungeons, and expanded crafting systems for equipment.
