148Apps round-up: Shred It!, Vampire Tribunals, 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…

Tiny Troopers: Alliance
By Chillingo


"With a Clash of Clans style flourish, Tiny Troopers: Alliance asks you to build a base and destroy everyone else's." (Jennifer Allen)

Card Dungeon
By Playtap Games


"Card Dungeon is a delightful riff on the hackneyed roguelike genre." (Brittany Vincent)

Shred It!
By EM Studios Ltd


"It might look lovely, but Shred It! is a pretty shallow endless runner/snowboarding game." (Jennifer Allen)

The Tunnel-An Endless Fall
By Ambient Labs


"The Tunnel - An Endless Fall is a bit harder to get the hang of than most "endless running/etc" games, but that doesn't keep it from being hypnotic in its own way." (Nadia Oxford)

Vampire Tribunals
By Clazz Entertainment

Subscribe to Pocket Gamer on

"Hunt other vampires in the "real world" in this location-based multiplayer game." (Campbell Bird)

Yeti's Parole Officer
By Choice of Games


"Yeti's Parole Officer proves that looks aren't everything in this entertaining, if plain, piece of interactive fiction." (Jennifer Allen)

All this, plus an interview with Monsu developers Boomlagoon, and a preview of Angry Birds Transformers. Click on over to 148Apps now for app news, reviews, interviews, and more.

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.
