148Apps round-up: Dungeon Highway, Merchants of the Sky, 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...

"Invoking memories of Snake, Wormi is a quite fun game about dodging and weaving, and one that excels in multiplayer." (Jennifer Allen)

Merchants of the Sky
By Stir Fry Games


"This airborne city building game stays aloft, but doesn't quite soar." (Jordan Minor)

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Trivia
By Dreamworks


"Offering some quirky but interesting trivia, this is a title sure to get kids interested in history." (Jennifer Allen)

Dungeon Highway
By Substantial Inc.


"Despite using unoriginal sprites, Dungeon Highway's blend of 2D art in 3D space is still the most unique thing about it." (Jordan Minor)

Monster Jam Game
By GameMill Entertainment


"This Monster can only muster a low growl at best." (Lee Hamlet)

Lost Oddies
By Youda Games


"Lost Oddies is a clever little puzzle game that's sure to drive players mad, but in a good way." (Stacy Barnes)

Clear Vision 3
By DPFlashes Studios


"The hit(stick)man with a vendetta is back in a sequel that retains everything fans love about the series, while adding an energy system they'll hate." (Lee Hamlet)

Bike Mayhem Mountain Racing
By Best Free Games


"Gnarly bike crashes are way more fun when they happen to someone else in Bike Mayhem Mountain Racing." (Jordan Minor)

Chris is a little frightened that he is the oldest writer on the 148Apps staff, but maybe there's someone else out there who remembers when a Mac Plus was cutting edge and the Newton was nothing short of miraculous.
