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...

Lightbringers: Saviors of Raia
By Frima

Lightbringers-3-600x345

"This cross-platform online multiplayer RPG is technically ambitious, but it isn't a perfect play experience." (Carter Dotson)

MOB1US
By Mental Universe

m0b1us3-600x338

"There's a nice original idea within this Endless Runner, but elsewhere it's a little too basic to recommend." (Jennifer Allen)

Messy Time - Sky
By otlabs

messy-time-4

"Messy Time - Sky looks fantastic, but that's really all it has going for it." (Jordan Minor)

Cross Wars
By Team Chaos

crosswars1-338x600

"Compete for the most squares in this multiplayer based crossword game. Just remember to bring some friends with you." (Jennifer Allen)

Web Defense
By Choubits

"Handy lessons about web security are available through this sometimes chaotic time management game." (Jennifer Allen)

Red Bull Racers
By Red Bull

redbullracers_01-600x337

"Red Bull Racers is fun for a while, but the free-to-play elements keep it in the slow lane." (Nadia Oxford)

Colourfill
By Nicolas Pietrowski

colourfill1-400x600 "A retro color-matching arcade game where players must capture enemies by filling the screen with the appropriate colors before time runs out completely." (Angela LaFollette)

Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion
By G5 Entertainment

paranormalagency7-600x450

"A fairly dependable Hidden Object / casual adventuring game, Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion is fun, if short." (Jennifer Allen)

Shavalyn Pop: Alien Escape
By Mysticmono

shavalyn-1

"Shavalyn Pop: Alien Escape lets players blaze their own path through space." (Jordan Minor)

Mobfish Hunter
By Appxplore

MobfishHunter-3-450x600

"Mobfish Hunter takes obvious inspiration from Ridiculous Fishing, but differentiates itself in couple of key ways - though not always to its advantage." (Carter Dotson)

All this, plus Blake Grundman previews CastleStorm, Jeff Scott expresses his... um... dismay at Dropbox's Carousel, and Rob Rich takes an early look at Leo's Fortune.
