148Apps Round-Up: Take It Easy, Taichi Panda, 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...

Take It Easy
By MildMania

"Take It Easy is a fun adaptation of the board game of the same name." (Jennifer Allen)

Questerium: Sinister Trinity
By G5 Entertainment

"A decent example of the casual adventuring genre, Questerium: Sinister Trinity should appeal to the laid-back fan." (Jennifer Allen)

Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager
By Slitherine

"Space exploration isn't so exciting in Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager, but there are a lot of resources to manage." (Jennifer Allen)

Taichi Panda
By Kumkwat Entertainment

"Though players still have to endure some free-to-play trappings, Taichi Panda is a well-constructed mobile MMOG." (Nadia Oxford)

Heroes Charge
By uCool

"Heroes Charge is a very middle-of-the-road RPG that's unremarkable, but an okay pick if you can't get enough of mobile-based RPGs." (Nadia Oxford)

Tomato World 2
By Jérémie Klemke

"Tomato World 2 is a simple yet tricky one-touch platformer. It's pretty fun." (Jennifer Allen)

Paper Monsters Recut
By Crescent Moon Games

"Paper Monsters Recut looks very charming but it's a little derivative." (Jennifer Allen)

All this, plus a preview of Earthcore: Shattered Elements, and a closer look at games created by Scott Cawthon that don't involve a certain pizza franchise. Click on over to 148Apps now!

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.
