Boy, things have really changed around here, haven’t they? Hello and welcome to Pocket Tactics 2.0. As you’ve no doubt noticed, your favourite mobile games site has had a bit of a makeover. Brought to you by Network N, the company behind PCGamesN and The Loadout, things may look somewhat familiar, although also a bit more… mobile-y.
We’ve undertaken an extensive visual makeover, which should make all our great content that much prettier and that much easier to read. We’ve also moved the site onto our core publishing platform, so things load quicker, work better, and generally give you a more enjoyable user experience. And, this being a mobile site and all, we’ve designed the whole thing with phones and tablets at the forefront of our thinking, so it all works well on the go.
One unfortunate upshot, given both the new design and, crucially, the change in platform, is that we’ve only been able to transfer a small portion of the content archive over. It’s a real shame, we know, but it was the only option if we wanted to have a fully-functioning, futureproof site that we can take forward into this new era.
And what of said era? Well, moving ahead, Pocket Tactics will continue to bring you exactly what you’ve come to expect: high quality editorial content about your favourite mobile games. This will include news, reviews, features, guides, lists, and more. We’ve also had a bit of a team shake-up, with departing editor Joe Robinson continuing his excellent work over on Strategy Gamer and Wargamer.
Meanwhile, new editor Glen Fox (that’s me!) will be taking care of the site going forward. Long-term mobile gamers might have seen my words on Pocket Gamer, 148Apps, Gamezebo, and iFanzine, though I’ve also spent time as guides editor for Nintendo Life and Push Square, and written on a freelance basis for the likes of Game Spew and Pro Game Guides.
I’m really into RPGs and MMOs, and particularly when the two combine. I’m currently obsessed with Mario Kart Tour and Call of Duty Mobile, though I regularly scan through Apple Arcade for a new time waster. Oceanhorn 2 is currently taking up that mantle.
If there is a journalist that likes mobile games as much as I do, I’ll kindly return my badge right now.
We also have a new staff writer in Sean Martin, our in-house expert on all things mobile strategy and card games. Sean is a super-experienced writer, whose words have appeared on the likes of PCGamesN, Eurogamer, PCGamer, Wireframe, EGMNOW, Kotaku, GamesRadar, Escapist.
Sean’s a huge fan of Gwent, and hasn’t stopped banging on about it since it launched on Android. He also regularly yells at his phone while playing Hearthstone, and switches over to Bad North or Florence when he needs a bit of a chill.
