148Apps's best games of 2017 – Jessica's list

It’s been a pretty spectacular year for mobile games, with all sorts of unique titles sprouting up, many by surprise. With top-knotch games launching on a near weekly basis, it’s been quite a task narrowing my top choices down to just ten entries. I’ve opted to present my list in no particular order — these games all excel at very different things, excellent exemplars of what their genres do best. Without further ado, here are my favorite games of 2017. [Read more] Go to Source...

TouchArcade Game of the Year 2017: 'Death Road to Canada'

This has been a truly incredible year for iOS gaming. We started with a list of hundreds of fantastic titles, whittled that down to a Top 100 Best Games list, and then started the day off with a short list of eight games in consideration for TouchArcade Game of the Year: Splitter Critters [$2.99], Data Wing [Free], Gorogoa [$4.99], GRID Autosport [$9.99], Cat Quest [$1.99], Reigns: Her Majesty [$2.99], Death Road to Canada [$10.99], and Arena of Valor [Free]. On this week’s episode of the podcast, we walk through all of these games and what made them so special before eventually hashing out what was going to win what. Normally, we reserve the video version of the podcast for TouchArcade Patreon backers, but since this is a special event that only comes around once a year, we figured that we’d just put the video up for everyone to see. If you’re at all curious about these additional titles, or the reasoning that went into what games won and why, definitely check this out or listen to our Podcast on iTunes: Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel   GAME OF THE YEAR: DEATH ROAD TO CANADA I’m not sure what kind of witchcraft is enchanting both Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, but it seems like the monkey’s paw wish they made years ago is still paying off with their ability to...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Cinco Paus'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn’t necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable “best” thing. Instead, it’s more just us picking out the single game out of the week’s releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one. These picks might be controversial, and that’s OK. If you disagree with what we’ve chosen, let’s try to use the comments of these articles to have conversations about what game is your game of the week and why. Without further ado…   Cinco Paus It was an odd week around here with the App Store being frozen for the holidays and only a handful of new games even being released. We even decided not to do our normal Out Now post on Wednesday because, well, it would have had like four games on it. However, one pretty significant game did make its surprise debut on Christmas Day and that game is Cinco...

Jared's 10 Best Games of 2017 – Some of the Biggest Releases of the Year and a Few Hidden Gems

Well, 2017 has been yet another incredible year of mobile game releases, and just like always when I sit down to pick out my own personal favorites of the year I had a really hard time keeping it to just ten. For this list I focused mostly on the games that made the biggest impact on me this year as well as the ones I spent the most time playing. That said, this list could easily be ten times the size and there are a lot of fantastic games that I enjoyed in 2017 that I had to make the tough decision to omit. Heck, our 100 Best Games of the Year list actually IS ten times this size, and there’s dozens of games that I wish we could have included on it still. I think we just have to get used to the fact that there’s an overwhelming amount of great content on mobile, truly something for everybody if you’re willing to search through all the crap to find it. That’s really why TouchArcade exists in the first place, and we busted our collective butts this year to bring you as many great games as possible, and we plan on working even harder in 2018 to continue that tradition.   Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel Beat Street, Free – Being an ’80s and ’90s arcade rat, one...

148Apps's best games of 2017 – Campbell's List

2017 was a great year… for games at least. Putting together list of 10 of the best mobile games out there was somehow even harder than it was last year. After playing 350+ games this year and reviewing 213 of them for 148Apps though, I’ve somehow been able to put together a list of ten games that were my absolute favorites from this year. Check them out below: [Read more] Go to Source...
