The Monday Musing - What AR gaming needs to do to succeed

Well, last week was all about the AR wasn't it? AR this and AR that and the new iPhone is expensive but it does AR things so that's cool. Is AR the future of gaming? I don't know. I'll be honest, I'm not really sure it's the present of gaming yet. So in this week's Monday Musing I'm going to have a muse about what AR games need to do in order to to become an important force in mobile gaming. I've got some hints, I've got some tips, and I've got a whole shed full of mad ideas. If you've got any ideas that you think might help, feel free to chuck them into the comments section at the bottom of the article. I'm pretty sure that, together, we can make AR gaming incredible. Or completely non-se…

Yes, it's Wednesday. It's been Wednesday for quite a while now, depending on where you are. It might not be Wednesday in some places. How does time even work? I have no idea. Go ask a grown up, we're here to talk about games. And on Wednesday (which is the day that today is), we talk about games that are on sale. Five of them.

The Tuesday best of - Games like Deus Ex GO

Sometimes here at AppSpy we like to be controversial. I know, I know, I'm surprised too. I thought we just said the nice things that the nice people wanted to hear. But no, we like to stick our oar in, wiggle it around, and see how long this metaphor can be stretched out for. Anyway, in our regular piece of Tuesday content this week, I've decided to throw up the three best GO games that aren't actually GO games. So they're like, GO-style games. Or something like that. Basically puzzle games that dress themselves up like third person adventures. And are good. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store.

The Monday Musing - The 3 most interesting mobile games on KickStarter right now

Do you remember when Kickstarter was heralded as the future of game funding? That didn't really pan out did it? But that doesn't mean that there aren't still some excellent games on the service that are looking for funding. And since it's Monday, I thought I'd have a muse about three of them that look particularly promising. There's a big mix of styles here, and there might be something that you fancy throwing some monies at. I don't mind, that's up to you, it's your money. To break with tradition, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head on over to their KS pages.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - September 15th

It's Friday. I'm going to go climb some mountains later, but in the meantime I suppose I'll create some super hot content for you. That's just the kinda guy I am. Also it's my job, so, I guess that's a reason as well. Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And when I say we, I mean me. There's no one else here. I just like to give off the illusion that I'm working in a high-stakes newsroom, instead of in a corner of my flat surrounded by empty pop bottles. Fun.

The Tuesday best of - Games like Metroid: Samus Returns for iPhone and iPad

There's a new Metroid game out on 3DS. Well, there sort of is. It's a remake of Metroid 2, I think, but with some extra bells and whistles tossed in for fun. Whatever it is, it's called Metroid: Samus Returns, and it's never going to come out for iPhone. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out on all that lovely metroidvania action, because there are plenty of games out there on the App Store that fit into the genre. And a good deal of them play around with the formula in some interesting ways. So since it's Tuesday, I thought I'd tell you about three that you should play. You can poke the emboldened names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've got your own su…
