148Apps round-up - FlapThulhu: Flappy Madness, Honorbound, 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...

Lunatic Clay
By Yoji Suzuki


"True to the classic, Lunatic Clay uses retro visuals and an art-style to match to reincarnate one of the most-known arcade games of the 80s for the touchscreen." (Arron Hirst)

Blue Eden
By Skoobie Games


"Experience the life cycle of a surgeonfish in this somewhat educational game." (Jennifer Allen)

By JuiceBox Games


"Accessible enough for beginners but engaging enough for RPG enthusiasts, HonorBound is an enjoyable adventure for all." (Lee Hamlet)

By Perceptor


"Perloo commands both time and a certain level of intrinsic logic. Provided one has both, it is highly rewarding. However, be prepared to cry at the hard bits." (Arron Hirst)

Bouncy Bit
By Deadly Serious Media


"As unspectacular as it may be, Bouncy Bit is still as addictive as any retro casual game can be." (Lee Hamlet)

World of Gibbets
By FDG Entertainment


"Bright colors and clever puzzles do little to hide the pure heart of darkness in World of Gibbets." (Jordan Minor)

FlapThulhu: Flappy Madness
By Madgarden


"The Deep One stars in perhaps the best flappy game yet." (Carter Dotson)

Patrick Kane's Winter Games
By Distinctive Games


"It's a little shallow but as a passing attraction, Patrick Kane's Winter Games is a fun arcade-style hockey game." (Jennifer Allen)

Colossus Escape
By Logicweb


"This free endless runner has enough weird quirks to be worth a look, at least for a little bit." (Campbell Bird)

By Mindware


"Board games are usually a great genre on mobile devices and Mindware's Qwirkle falls in line with the quality iOS users have come to expect." (Mike Deneen)

All this, plus Rob Rich blames the freemium model on everybody, Carter Dotson profiles Galaxy on Fire - Alliances developer Fishlabs, and Jeff Scott finds Disney movies everywhere.

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.
