148Apps round-up: Surfy, Cupcake Carnival, 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…

Cursed Treasure 2
By Armor Games


"It's a dependable and fun tower defense game, but Cursed Treasure 2 lacks a certain original spark that would have truly made it special." (Jennifer Allen)

By DreamWalk Mobile


"Perform tricks and surf like crazy with Surfy." (Jennifer Allen)

Epic Island
By Backflip Studios


"Colorful and not without potential, Epic Island is too slow going when it comes to offering up its wonders." (Jennifer Allen)

Leaf on the Wind
By Pangea Software


"Like an autumn wind, Leaf on the Wind feels pleasant enough most of the time - though some gusts are certain to frustrate you to no end." (Nadia Oxford)

Cupcake Carnival


"Cupcake Carnival does all the right match-3 things but it's a format we've seen a little too often by now." (Jennifer Allen)

The Strongest
By Laboratory


"It’s only human nature that we all face a certain point in our lives when we just want to punch something. Anything." (George Fagundes)

Star Nomad
By Halfgeek Studios


"Star Nomad will only appeal to the most hardcore space explorers." (Jordan Minor)

By Shelly Alon


"Partyrs makes party planning as fun as partying itself." (Jordan Minor))

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.
