148Apps round-up: Zombie Apocalift, Penguin Pile-Up, Battle Camp, and more
The week in casual games
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...
"Cutesy comic strip pirates land at the local Barrr with their beer-swilling, tattoo-inking, video-gaming demands. Keep pace with their needs or, arrrgh, they may just pee on the floor of this classy establishment." (Stacy Barnes)

"Pixel This! is a darn fine Nonogram game for iOS." (Carter Dotson).
Full disclosure: Yes, the Mark Brown who made Pixel This! is the same Mark Brown who runs Pocket Gamer.
By Penny Pop
"Pay walls and forced social features may drive away some players, but a solid and addicting core makes Battle Camp a great game for those who don't mind mandatory breaks."
By Pixel Heart
"A little basic to look at, What A Wonderful Word packs quite a punch for those looking for more cerebral word gaming." (Jennifer Allen)
By Spin Master
"No finger-flipping goodness here. Instead, players skate to the top through a series of quick time events." (Mike Deneen)
All this, plus Jeff Scott reviews Dropcam Pro and Pogo Connect Stylus Tips, and Blake Grundman previews Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force.
