148Apps Round-Up: Hardboiled, Languinis, 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...

By Game Dev Team

"This turn-based RPG more than resembles the Fallout games, but how does it compare?" (Campbell Bird)

Languinis: Match & Spell
By Tilting Point Spotlight

"Languinis mixes word gaming and Match-3. It works well." (Jennifer Allen)

Detective Dixie
By Lukman Gunawan

"Detective Dixie is an okay mix of puzzling and detective work, but it suffers from some terrible language issues." (Jennifer Allen)

Snake Rewind
By Rumilus Design

"Snake Rewind is nostalgic, but not as tightly constructed as the original." (Jennifer Allen)

Fragger 2
By Harold Brenes

"Fragger 2 is reminiscent of older physics puzzlers, but that isn't necessarily a good thing." (Campbell Bird)

Test Chamber
By Shark Jump Studios

"This puzzle game has a unique concept, but it gets so difficult that it can be hard to appreciate." (Campbell Bird)

Dead Eyes
By LoadComplete

"Dead Eyes is a very atmospheric puzzler that’s just a bit too simple." (Rob Rich)

Ilmfinity LLC

"Probably the nearest you're going to get to Pokemon." (Jennifer Allen)

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.
