The week in casual games

148Apps round-up: R.B.I. Baseball 14, Tank of Tanks, Dungeon Quest, 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...

Call of Cookie
By Ankama


"Call of Cookie proves that plants aren't the only fighting foods out there." (Jordan Minor)

Bad Vamp
By Jaime Salas Jr


"Run or destroy the vampires in this simple, single-screen game that lacks real bite." (Jennifer Allen)

Bullet Pea
By Team Popo


"Bullet Pea's 'jumps only' gameplay is novel in theory, but has problems in practice." (Jordan Minor)

R.B.I. Baseball 14
By Major League Baseball Advanced Media


"What was old is new again, as the MLB attempts to taking baseball gaming back to its retro roots. Too bad nothing has changed since 1986." (Blake Grundman)

Cosmic Mechanic
By Kimmo Lahtinen


"Creatives folks love the opportunity to have their wits tested, but there isn't enough variety to make the mind quake." (Blake Grundman)

Word Cubes
By Fat Fish Games


"Word Cubes is fine, but it is barely any different from any other word game." (Jordan Minor)

Tank of Tanks
By Otto Olaja


"This multiplayer game played on a single iPad is simple, chaotic fun." (Carter Dotson)

Dungeon Quest
By Shiny Box Games


"Dungeon Quest does a lot of things right, but ultimately forgets about one of the core components expected in any RPG, which is ironically even mentioned in the game's title: a quest." (Cata Modorcea)

Baby Bird Bros
By PlayCreek


"Baby Bird Bros is a decent line-drawing puzzle game that should entertain fans of the genre for at least a few hours." (Nadia Oxford)

By Forever Entertainment


"Millie delivers a cute premise, nice graphics, and plenty of levels to play in, but it seems mostly suited to a younger audience." (Cata Modorcea)

All this, plus Jeff Scott reviews the LiveScribe 3 Smart Pen... and absolutely loves it!

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.
