Why PUBG for mobile is a really bad idea

Why PUBG for mobile is a really bad idea

Well it's Thursday, and usually I like to write some content on Thursday. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. In fact, I'm doing it right now. Do you see? This is the content that I am creating for you. Consider yourselves blessed. Blessed by this wondrous content. If you have even the slightest interest in videogames then you've probably heard people mentioning PUBG. In layman's terms that's PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, a battle royale game that's eating up time and money over on Steam. There have been attempts to bring similar style games to mobile, and while there have been some valiant-ish attempts, none of them have really worked. And that got me thinking. And when I get to thin…

If Deliria passed you by, here’s what you’re missing

Malaysian developer Eldritch Games released its own little sci-fi adventure earlier this year. But, like a cloaked spaceship covertly spying on Earth, it probably flew under your radar. Here's what to expect from 2D side-scroller Deliria. Set in 2107 following Earth's devastation by an asteroid, you step into the shoes of an interdimensional overseer. It's your task to establish the base camp for a mining operation on Dimension LG7 in order to harvest Delirium, an element with unknown power. You're not the first to try, though, as you'll discover if you collect the scattered diary logs. Waking from stasis on the alien planet, you discover most of your crew has gone missing, and some ma…

Why Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp might be the perfect game to get you through this holiday season

It's getting towards the end of the year, and that can only mean one thing - we're about to be engulfed by a series of holidays. Oh, and it might snow in the northern hemisphere as well. Probably not though, what with global warming and all. Anyway, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has just landed on the App Store. Sure, it might be a bit early, and someone has forgotten to turn the servers on, but that got me thinking. Is Animal Crossing the perfect mobile game to tide you through the dark winter nights and awful meetings with aunts and uncles you barely even remember? There's really only one thing for it. I'm going to have to create a piece of content to address that very question. You can c…

Well, it's that week again. Black Friday is almost upon us, and that can only mean one thing - deals, deals, deals. But this isn't DealSpy, that's a completely different website.

We're specifically looking at games that are really going to shine on your new phone or tablet. The sort of thing you're going to whip out to show your mum to justify the price you just spent on, what is essentially, a few bits of glass, plastic, and metal. You can click on the emboldened names of the games to download them from the A…

Everything you need to know about Shadow Fight 3 for iPhone and iPad

Okay, it's Thursday, so that means that it's time for the Thursday find. Except I've gone and changed the name of it, because quite frankly The Thursday Find is one of the worst possible SEO titles that I've ever heard for anything. I'm so sorry I've let you all down like this. Anyway, the format of the content is going to be basically the same. I'm going to pick a game, write some stuff about it, and give you a link to download it. It's pretty smart, right? It's just the name that has changed, so don't you worry too much, regular reader. So yeah, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you've got your own experiences to share, feel free to stick them in the c…

Everything we know so far about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for iPhone and Android

Yesterday we had a look at the game that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite should be copying. Today I thought we'd do something a little more traditional and look at all of the information we have about the game thus far.

What Harry Potter: Wizards Unite can learn from The Order of the Phoenix game

The big news in mobile gaming last week revolved around everyone's favourite boy wizard. That's because Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was announced. It's an AR game built by Niantic. So that's the creators of Pokemon GO taking on one of the most beloved popular cultural phenomena of our time. Now, while other websites might be writing articles speculating about what the game might look like, and taking guesses at when the game is actually going to come out, I thought I'd do something a little different. After all this is App Spy, and we love to do things a little different around here. So I'm going to take a look at the Harry Potter game that Wizards Unite should copy. It is, in my humble op…

Well, Thursday has rolled around, and the big release this week is South Park: Phone Destroyer.
