Fortnite, PUBG, and Shadowgun Legends - What have been the big changes in mobile gaming in the first half of 2018?

Posted by Harry Slater on July 16th, 2018

This month, we're looking back at the first half of 2018, looking at the good, the bad, and everything in between. In this piece we're having a think about the big changes that have happened in mobile gaming over the past six months, and what they might mean for mobile gamers moving forwards.

It's our job to keep an eye on the trends, new ideas, and new concepts that are happening in mobile, and we've had a good long think and decided that these five were the biggest changes in 2018. If you've spotted any that you think are worth mentining, then make sure you toss them in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

How Shadowgun Legends became the must-play mobile shooter in the first half of 2018

Posted by Harry Slater on July 9th, 2018

So far, 2018 has been a pretty great year for mobile gaming. And, depending on how you look at things, you could say it's been the best year for shooters since the App Store first popped into existence. A lot of the plaudits for that have to go to one place - Shadowgun Legends.

It might not be the most original game in the world, but it took an idea, made it work in the palm of your hand, and then ran with it. It's a gorgeous-looking, slick-playing blast that's still thriving even now. So we thought it was high time to have another look at Madfinger's glorious sci-fi experience, and explain why it worked so well.

What games are there like Rage 2 for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on May 16th, 2018

Well, the Rage 2 trailer came out. It's pretty interesting, if you're in to post apocalyptic destruction and games that look an awful lot like Borderlands. But, y'know, shinier. But since that sort of non-portable game really isn't our bag here at 148Apps, we thought it'd make sense to make a list of games that are a bit like Rage 2 that we actually do care about.

One of them was a pretty easy choice. Can you guess which one it was? Even if you can't, make sure you give the list a read, and if you think we've missed something out, let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article. Or if you just want to tell us we've wasted our time and should be doing better. Say something.
