Time is limited. Apps are plentiful.

How can you make sense of the ever-increasing number of new games in the App Store? Well, by reading Pocket Gamer, of course. But we can't possibly cover everything, and there are some games that just don't fit in our wheelhouse.

Thankfully, our friends over at 148Apps are here to save the day. Take a look at some of the casual games that have caught the attention of the 148Apps team…

Addnum

"Simple, fast, and fun. Addnum is a free number puzzler that doesn't disappoint." (Rob Thomas)

Invaders! From Outer Space
By Crenetic Publishing GmbH

invaders_04-600x450

"It's a shame that Invaders! doesn't offer deeper gameplay, as this retro-inspired remake's presentation is dripping with nostalgic flavor." (Rob Thomas)

"It looks like EA Sports has finally discovered how to tread the line between free-to-pay and pay-to-win. Simply put, they finally figured it out." (Blake Grundman)

"Furious Climber's rough packaging can't ruin its awesomely awkward gameplay" (Jordan Minor)

Pac-Man Friends
By Namco Bandai

"Though its controls can be a bit problematic at times, Pac-Man Friends is a neat way to bring puzzle-solving to the House of Pac." (Nadia Oxford)
