148Apps round-up: Spin It, Wonder Golf, Galaxy Conquerors, 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...

Galaxy Conquerors
By Rafael Costa


"Old school shooting is fun but inaccurate in Galaxy Conquerors." (Jennifer Allen)

Spin It
By We R Play


"Spin It has a fine puzzle game model, but its execution lacks energy." (Jordan Minor)

Knight Saves Queen
By Dobsoft Studios


"Mixing up puzzle elements with Chess-based sensibilities is a fun move for this simplistic looking puzzle game." (Jennifer Allen)

Scrap Squad
By Relevant Games


"It turns out that dividing up trash can be quite fun in a chaotic kind of way." (Jennifer Allen)

Micronytes Director's Cut
By Miguel Vega Arance


"Micronytes isn't for everyone, but for people who've seen the screenshots and haven’t lost interest, the game delivers a few more pros to hold their attention." (Cata Modorcea)

Wonder Golf
By Mobage


"Help Alice explore a mini-golf version of Wonderland in the quirky Wonder Golf." (Lee Hamlet)

Dungeon Clicker
By Anitbore


"Quest for loot in this dungeon crawler that is almost completely void of actual, compelling gameplay." (Campbell Bird)

Tidal Drive
By Pebble Pinky Studios


"Tidal Drive is built on a solid concept, but its controls are a washout." (Nadia Oxford)

Cabby Tales
By Oxybool


"Cabby Tales' charming visuals would make it an ideal title for young players, if not for the overly-challenging stages." (Nadia Oxford)

Bike Assault
By Dyabit Games


"Bike Assault is as basic as an arcade-style game gets, though it's not devoid of charm and challenge." (Nadia Oxford)

All this, plus Carter Dotson takes to Twitch to showcase Soccer Rally 2, and Jennifer Allen takes a closer look at Grammar Girl's foray into gaming.

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.
