Every Sunday we bring you a quick round-up of all the cool things from the site that we think you'll love. We call it AppSpy's Sunday Service - this week featuring Glen, the newest addition to the regular team. The Big Stories 1.

7 movies recreated in extraordinary detail in Supernauts

We really liked Supernauts when we reviewed it way back in June of this year. It's a lovely little collaborative social game, and I spent many an hour building elaborate structures. But it never occurred to me that I could recreate the essence of a whole movie. Thankfully there are people in this world that are much much brighter than I am, and they've done exactly that. Here then are 7 of the very best silver screen creations from Supernauts, off of that there Everyplay. Wreck-It Ralph Despicable Me The Simpsons Independence Day Tron Toy Story Sharknado Think you've found an even better one? Let us know via the comments.…

The top 5 smart devices for mobile phones

Well, AppSpy has got you covered with our top 5 list of smart devices for dumb people.  All of these devices actually exist, and command the sort of ridiculous price you'd expect for having the ultimate in convenience at hand.

Game Workshop gives Chainsaw Warrior the sequel treatment in Lords of the Night

It's Friday, AppSpies, and do we have a treat for you. The adaptation of possibly the most testosterone-fuelled board game ever, Game Workshop's Chainsaw Warrior, is getting the sequel treatment. Chainsaw Warrior is a mobile and PC adaptation of the classic 1987 board game of the same name, with both generally involving you rolling dice to destroy zombies and other monsters in the most creatively brutal way possible. The sequel features an upgraded combat system, new weapons, upgrades, powers, and equipment, all of which can no doubt be used to duff up those poor hordes of hungry zombies. Speaking of the walking dead, there'll be a few new moudly mini-bosses to slay and three new…


Here's a sneak peek at upcoming EA Mobile racer Need for Speed No Limits

Here's a sneak peek at upcoming EA Mobile racer Need for Speed No Limits

EA Mobile has announced that it's releasing a brand new mobile Need For Speed 'soon'. That means you can quite safely expect it to look great, play okay, and require much tilting of your respective devices as you drive at dangerous speeds in an urban environment. The game is, rather unsurprisingly, in development by Firemonkeys - famed for releasing one of the most expensive free games to hit a mobile device ever - Real Racing 3. If you're feeling the need for speed yourself, why not watch the ridiculous trailer in which Ken Block does what he does best - driving a car really, really fast.…


Sex Pistols rocker Johnny Rotten admits to blowing £10,000 on F2P iPad games

Sex Pistols rocker Johnny Rotten admits to blowing £10,000 on F2P iPad games

Feeling a little silly for spending so much of your hard-earned dosh on supposedly ‘free-to-play’ iPad games? Well allow us to assuage that feeling by bringing you the news that John Lydon, AKA Johnny Rotten, has supposedly spent a whopping £10,000 on IAPs in the last two years. The former Sex Pistols star and face of the Country Life adverts spoke to the Telegraph about his recent extravagance, and claimed that “(he) just wanted to up the ante”. “And like an idiot I didn't check myself. I've been checked now. But there's a kid in me, see? A bit of my childhood was taken from me and I'm determined to bring it back." Lydon can safely consider the ante up…

You'll find all these creatures and more in the iOS port of decade-old twin-stick shooter Crimsonland. And yes, you'll get to shoot them all with a variety of weird and wonderful weapons. Check out the carnage in Crimsonland HD video review above.…

The 5 most ridiculous smartphone endorsements by celebrities

Feature By Peter Willington, 3 days, 19 hours ago
The 5 most ridiculous smartphone endorsements by celebrities

Sometimes the rich and famous decide to endorse brands and products in exchange for money. Sounds absurd and a little bit underhanded, I know, but it's true. Sometimes those brands and products are smartphones, and sometimes these celebrities appear in video advertisements in the hope that the masses will readily consume them, and start to think about how lovely and shiny and desirable said brands and products are. Many of them are completely ridiculous, and these are the five best. Hence the article title. HTC and Gary Oldman - Now this is what you want from a phone ad: a man making vaguely threatening remarks to you. The iPhone 6 and U2 - Well now... this one went south pretty quickl…


Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review

Lo-fi platformers may be all the rage, but developers still have a tough time making the formula work on touchscreen devices. Thank goodness for Electronic Super Joy: Groove City, then, a twitchy, brash, and brutal side-scroller which is as interested in silly asides and pop culture nods as it is in sadism. To learn more, direct your eyes to the video above.…

Helix iPad Review

Review Michael Brough By James Gilmour, 4 days, 14 hours ago
Helix iPad Review

Helix is a game about twists and turns. I don't mean it has a surprise M. Night Shyamalan ending or a section where you relive your failed driving test a third, excruciating time. No - in Helix, you are literally spinning your avatar around enemies to eliminate them from the screen. Take a look at our video review to find out whether this simple mechanic won us over.…

What does spending $3000 on Gems in Clash of Clans look like? This

What does spending $3000 on Gems in Clash of Clans look like? This

SlimmyshankCoC is a Clash of Clans player, and a fairly well-known one at that. He's mostly known because of his YouTube channel, and specifically his "Crazy Gem Spending" videos, in which he splurges a bunch of cash on IAPs in an effort to make himself artificially more powerful in Supercell's free-to-play strategy management title. I've gathered up all of these videos thus far, and tallied up how much he's spent in this series alone. It's a lot. So take a look at the episodes below and see what $3000+ of iTunes credit will buy you. Oh and FYI: from about video 6 onwards his videos get NSFW in some fairly immature ways. SlimmyshankCoC by name... 1. Total spend this video = $300 2.…
