Every day, we pick out a curated list of the best mobile discounts on the App Store and post them here. This list won't be comprehensive, but it every game on it is recommended. Feel free to check out the coverage we did on them in the links below to further vet these discounted games before you decide to buy:
Games marked with an asterisk(*) denote that the entire developer/publisher’s catalog is discounted, despite the fact that all of their games may not be listed here.
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.
When Iron Marines released around this time last year, I lauded it as one of the best real-time strategy games on mobile, and I still stand by that. The game wasn’t perfect by any means, as it had a relative lack of content and a weird mircotransaction model that felt unnecessary, but it was still a near-perfect execution on how to streamline a genre onto mobile.
This week, Iron Marines dropped a new update that added a bunch of free content to the game. In light of this news, I wanted to take a new look at Iron Marines and assess whether this update makes the game worth jumping into if you decided to skip it initially.
2017 was a great year... for games at least. Putting together list of 10 of the best mobile games out there was somehow even harder than it was last year. After playing 350+ games this year and reviewing 213 of them for 148Apps though, I've somehow been able to put together a list of ten games that were my absolute favorites from this year. Check them out below.
The holiday season may be drawing to a close, but there's still plenty to celebrate. You'll find many popular games at incredible discounts on the App Store right now. We've gone and rounded up the best deals on iOS games this week.
A big game update is always a treat. Multiply that by four and you're having a really good week. Those weeks don't come around very often, but you're in luck. This chilly mid-November is chock full updates for some of your favorite titles, and they're real game changers. Here are four of the biggest updates out now or arriving in the next few days.
It's a banner week for discounted video games, that's for sure. To celebrate this most eventful Halloween, we're serving up nine excellent games all at a reduced price. There are plenty of spooky games in the mix to suit your seasonal needs, but there are also a few that won't haunt your nightmares if that's not really your thing. Let's get to it.
September always feels like a time of change. It's the end of summer, the youngsters are heading back for a new school year, and even the daily humdrum of life feels a bit new. But one thing hasn't changed, and that's the quality of the games we've played over the past few weeks. August was a firecracker of a month for mobile games, but September is holding its own quite well. Here are our favorite games of the month.
The work week can be tough, but on the bright side, it's almost overandthere are bunches of brand new games to try out this weekend. This week definitely makes up for last week's sleepiness ten-fold. We've got one of the finest RTS game on mobile this week, a lovely little puzzler, and plenty of other goodies to keep you entertained for weeks to come. Let's get right down to it, shall we?
Many were wondering what had happened to Ironhide Game Studio's upcoming RTS, Iron Marines, which was announced a year ago (though production began a year before that). People got especially antsy as Ironhide announced a new Kingdom Rush game earlier this week. Had the project been scrapped in favor of the developer's well-established franchise?
As it turns out, development on Iron Marines is well underway. Ironhide shared a minute-long look at Iron Marines' gameplay. The video (above) showcases a beta build of the game, featuring what a match might look like. There's a lot of what you might expect from a game of this nature -- base building, some deep strategy, and a variety of units. It all looks very smooth, though, and the cartoony artistry of the hand-drawn graphics are a refreshing touch.
The team is hard at work and pushing for a final release. In a blog post, the team mentioned that they've just completed their first beta, which was a solid success. Ironhide expects Iron Marines to be the first game they publish this year, launching sometime mid-2017.
