148Apps round-up: Neon Commander, Chaos Fighters, Returno, 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 Daniel


"Maze meets Rubik's Cube in this 3D puzzler where the objective is to climb through 10 challenging levels to get the highest score." (Angela LaFollette)

Ace Fishing: Wild Catch
By Com2uS


"Ace Fishing: Wild Catch is an arcade game that makes the sport seem fun even to an audience who wouldn't actually like the real thing." (Cata Modorcea)

Skyline Skaters
By Tactile Entertainment


"It might not revolutionize the genre, but that doesn't stop Skyline Skaters from being a very enjoyable Endless Runner." (Jennifer Allen)

Neon Commander
By HeroCraft


"Bounce missiles back at the enemy through some well timed line drawing in this fun if sometimes samey arcade style game." (Jennifer Allen)

Chaos Fighters
By Coco Entertainment


"There's plenty to do, but it's oddly not particularly gripping in this colorful but uninspired MMO." (Jennifer Allen)

Sango Slayer
By Koogame


"Sango Slayer mixes RPG elements into a classic formula to create a noteworthy Tower Defense - RPG hybrid." (Cata Modorcea)

By Blindfire Games


"Test vocabulary in this dungeon-crawler by playing Boggle to cast spells." (Campbell Bird)

By Mathew Cox


"Players test their reflexes by tapping on flying discs of different colors to send them back to their home base." (Angela LaFollette)

By Semidome


"Combine colors to create different colors in this simple yet appealing puzzle game." (Jennifer Allen)

Big Hangman of Fortune
By Kumkwat Entertainment


"Big Hangman of Fortune tries its best, but Hangman in general is only entertaining for a brief amount of time." (Nadia Oxford)

All this, plus Carter Dotson takes a closer look at the Canadian release of Hearthstone, and we offer our best tips for puzzling puzzler Monument Valley.

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.
