How will World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Blizzard's other games work for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on January 14th, 2019

You might have heard that Blizzard is bringing Diablo to mobile with Diablo Ultimate. There's been plenty of controversy surrounding that decision, and it's meant that a really important piece of information has been glossed over a little. Namely that Blizzard is bringing all of its IP to mobile in the foreseeable future.

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.

The top 5 best iPhone games like Starcraft

Posted by Harry Slater on September 19th, 2018

Starcraft sits at the top of the RTS tree for a number of very good reasons. It also isn't on mobile, again, for a number of very good reasons. But that doesn't mean you can't find a way to indulge your sci-fi, competitive, massive, or engaging RTS desires if you know where to look.

Luckily, we do know where to look. Essentially it's our job, so we've trawled the App Store to find the best experiences that we think are going to at least sate your Starcraft cravings before you get back home to your PC where you can play properly.

We've chosen what we think are the finest games, but it's entirely possible that you disagree with us. If that's the case, then feel free to chuck your own suggestions in the comments section and get some discussion going. And if you're interested in content presented in list form, make sure you click this link and check out all the rest of the lists we've written.

Starfront: Collision Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Chris Hall on February 22nd, 2011
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: STARCRAFT MOBILE
In glittery Gameloft fashion, StarCraft has now become Starfront. It's not world changing and no pro leagues will spawn from it, but it is darn good.

Sentinel

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Bonnie Eisenman on May 19th, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: STELLAR
Sentinel is easily one of the best tower defense games in the App Store, and genre fans would be crazy not to get this one. Beyond the awesome eye candy, it's a pleasure to play...oh, and you get to blow aliens to bits. What more do you need?

UniWar

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
