AppSpy's Best Games of 2014 - Peter's Top 5

It's the very end of December, and at this time of year it's customary for video game websites to pick out their favourites titles of the previous year. We'll be popping up our “official” collective top 5 on the 1st of January 2015, but as we build up to that, the AppSpy team is all going to take a little time to run you through its personal favourites. First up, my turn. Skylanders Trap Team The best thing about Skylanders Trap Team isn't the compulsively collectible toys, nor is it the rock solid mix of platforming and combat. It's not even the dedicated controller, superb voice acting, or top notch visuals.The best thing about Skylanders Trap Team is that it sets out to…

Want an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus this Christmas? Think you might have one but don't want to peek at your presents? Here's how to stop yourself

Want an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus this Christmas? Think you might have one but don't want to peek at your presents? Here's how to stop yourself

I can't say for sure what you're hoping to get in your stocking this Christmas, but I'd bet a fair few of you are hoping for an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus from Kris Kringle and co. I know I certainly wouldn't say no to a lovely new iDevice. In the lead up to the gift-ageddon that is the 25th of December, it's only natural to want to sneak a little peek at what's at the foot of the bed, or laying in wait beneath the Christmas tree, but we all know that's very naughty indeed, and only those that have been extremely good this year will likely end up getting one. So instead of risking it, getting caught, and missing out, distract yourself by watching these expectedly slick ads by Apple for the…

Hands-on with Raging Justice, in which I beat up goons, slap about ladies, kick some dogs, and punch in a phone booth or two

I saw this 2D side scrolling brawler when I went to Insomnia a few weeks back, and immediately knew we had to cover it here on AppSpy. It's a Final Fight / Streets of Rage by way of Clayfighter, but with lots more content than those older games, and extremely polished controls linked to loads of different abilities and attacks. Raging Justice is shaping up to be awesome, and is one of my most anticipated games of 2015. Here's what it looks like in motion...…

Hands-on with TimeCube, where you can't control yourself but you can control time

In TimeCube you have to guide the eponymous TimeCube through a series of constantly shifting and moving stages, littered with obstacles. Here's the catch though: you can't control the TimeCube directly. So how do you make it through each level unscathed? By manipulating time itself. Here's my hands-on with this rather wonderful endless action game, you can grab the title for yourself via the link at the bottom of the page. [App Store link]…

12 amazing iPhone and iPad games to play with your family this Christmas

It's Christmas soon, and that often means having all the family round to exchange presents, munch down some mince pies, and maybe quoff a cheeky glass of tipple or three.

Bah! Humbug! 10 top games for Christmas grumps

I love Christmas I do, but I can totally see why it's not for everyone. Pretending to be nice to people you don't know (extended family, for example), eating food you don't like (Christmas Pudding is disgusting), and spending money on presents people don't need (does anyone actually like getting "smellies"?) - it's all a bit much. So just for this article, let's embrace the humbug, and talk about the very best games to stick two fingers up at Christmas 2014. 1. Robots Love Ice Cream - Because yes, robots love ice cream, but do they have the capacity to love Christmas too? Probably not. 2. Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff - Because it's easy to stay out of the Christmas spirit by playing…

We've rounded up the very finest of these updates to bring you this list so you know exactly what you should be playing. Or, if you're more of a Scrooge-type, exactly what you should be avoiding. We'll leave it in your hands! Asphalt 8: Airborne This update will give your Christmas lunch competition in the 'meatiness' stakes.

Stop everything! You need to watch the karaoke trailer for Office Chair Zombie Attack

In Office Chair Zombie Attack you tilt and twist your device around to line up the crosshairs of your gun and blow zombies to smithereens. The game's presented in a cartoonish 3D, there are lots of enemies and weapons, and leaderboards to compare your shooting skills with your mates. Sounds fun! But the developer - A Small Game - really caught our eye with its 90s karaoke-themed trailer for the title. It's brilliant and silly and you have to watch it right now. Office Chair Zombie Attack comes to iPhone and iPad on the 25th of December.…

12 games to help you ignore your family this holiday season, number 8 may not actually work though

If you're the type of person who likes to squirrel themselves away while the family's over, burying into a bunch of video games to pass the time until the house is empty once more, then I've got a crucial list for you today. Below are the finest examples of mobile games that will keep you entertained while Great Aunt Susie has parked herself in the living room and is refusing to let you use the TV on account of it being “anti-social” or some other reason boring old guffs dream up to stop you doing exactly what you want around Christmas time. 1.
