148Apps round-up: Dark District, Polarity, Beat Drift, and more

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...

Word Science
By WildTangent


"Create words from a series of tiles in this simple yet fun word game." (Jennifer Allen)

Dark District
By Kabam


"There might be plenty to do here, but Dark District is a title that's too samey for comfort. (Jennifer Allen)

By Blue Button Games


"Polarity is a game that takes many cues from Portal, but it fails to stick the landing." (Carter Dotson)

Puzzlium: Prologue
By Grabarchuk Puzzles


"Simply done and full of traditional puzzles, Puzzlium: Prologue offers plenty of puzzles for the logical mind." (Jennifer Allen)

Loot Hero
By Daniel Hjelm


"Quest for loot in this breakneck, bite-sized adventure." (Campbell Bird)

Beat Drift
By LunarPixelGames


"Beat Drift counts on a player's logic in order for them to survive. Its techno beat and visuals will likely arrive as a delight to most, but it's difficulty levels could do with a tweak or two." (Arron Hirst)

All this, plus Jeff Scott reviews the Stratus MFi Bluetooth controller; Rob Rich investigates Haunting Melissa's storytelling tech; and Lucy Ingram interviews comic book artist and game visualizer Steve Uy.
