148Apps round-up: MOB1US, Red Bull Racers, 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...

Lightbringers: Saviors of Raia
By Frima


"This cross-platform online multiplayer RPG is technically ambitious, but it isn't a perfect play experience." (Carter Dotson)

By Mental Universe


"There's a nice original idea within this Endless Runner, but elsewhere it's a little too basic to recommend." (Jennifer Allen)

Messy Time - Sky
By otlabs


"Messy Time - Sky looks fantastic, but that's really all it has going for it." (Jordan Minor)

Cross Wars
By Team Chaos


"Compete for the most squares in this multiplayer based crossword game. Just remember to bring some friends with you." (Jennifer Allen)

Web Defense
By Choubits


"Handy lessons about web security are available through this sometimes chaotic time management game." (Jennifer Allen)

Red Bull Racers
By Red Bull


"Red Bull Racers is fun for a while, but the free-to-play elements keep it in the slow lane." (Nadia Oxford)

By Nicolas Pietrowski

colourfill1-400x600 "A retro color-matching arcade game where players must capture enemies by filling the screen with the appropriate colors before time runs out completely." (Angela LaFollette)

Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion
By G5 Entertainment


"A fairly dependable Hidden Object / casual adventuring game, Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion is fun, if short." (Jennifer Allen)

Shavalyn Pop: Alien Escape
By Mysticmono


"Shavalyn Pop: Alien Escape lets players blaze their own path through space." (Jordan Minor)

Mobfish Hunter
By Appxplore


"Mobfish Hunter takes obvious inspiration from Ridiculous Fishing, but differentiates itself in couple of key ways - though not always to its advantage." (Carter Dotson)

All this, plus Blake Grundman previews CastleStorm, Jeff Scott expresses his... um... dismay at Dropbox's Carousel, and Rob Rich takes an early look at Leo's Fortune.

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.
