‘This War of Mine’ Review: War is Hell, But This Game Isn’t

Don’t play This War of Mine if you want to get warm and fuzzy feelings inside. It’s a realistic war game from the perspective of innocent civilians. But it’s an incredible achievement as a game, says 148Apps in their 4.5 out of 5 star review.

If you’ve already played This War of Mine on PC there isn’t much reason for you to do so again on the iPad, but the portability is nice. If you haven’t played it at all, you should really consider doing so. I won’t promise that you’ll enjoy yourself, but it will definitely stick with you long after you turn it off.

‘Super Awesome Quest’ Review: Pretty Awesome, Anyway

If you don’t mind your RPGs to be heavy on the grinding, you might not mind Super Awesome Quest, a game 148Apps awarded 4 out of 5 stars. From the review:

Of course, Super Awesome Quest ends up a little heavy handed with in-app purchases as is often the way with such games, but it’s kind of forgivable. You can still get somewhere by chipping away at the game yourself, and you’ll easily lose some free time to this title. Eventually that urge to see around the next corner will fade, but while it lasts you’ll be itching for more time spent flipping tiles.

‘Heroki’ Review: A Gorgeous Adventure

Heroki is the kind of game that has you fly through a beautiful world to defeat a nefarious doctor. 148Apps gives the game high praise in their review, with a score of 4 out of 5 stars. Here’s an excerpt:

Heroki soon ends up being worth the asking price, given its plentiful amount of content. At first it seems more like a family friendly title, but it soon ramps up the difficulty and leaves you challenged yet satisfied. It very nearly harkens back to the days of the golden era of Sega games always being high quality. It’s only when you grudgingly accept that no control method is perfect and that sometimes the camera zooms too close that the promise of Heroki is held slightly back. Despite that, you’ll still enjoy what’s here.
