The top 10 iPhone and iPad games of 2018: No. 10 - Oddmar

Since it's coming up to the end of the year, we've decided that it's time to start rounding up what has been a particularly good year in the mobile gaming world. And we thought we'd do it by running down our ten favourite games of the last twelve months. Because we're traditionalists we're going to start with our tenth best game of the year. We'd love to hear what you thought of the game, whether you agree with its position on the list, or if you wouldn't even bother playing it with a twenty seven foot barge pole. Oddmar We're starting things off with what we reckon might be the best mobile platformer of the past twelve months. It's all about a Viking who's trying to prove that he deser…

Top iPhone and iPad games of November 2018

It feels like only yesterday that November was only just starting, yet here we are at the beginning of December with a whole bunch of new games to look back on. Doesn't time just fly when you're having fun? From adventures through platformers, shooters, and strategy titles, there's been something for everyone. These ones below are the cream of the crop, though if you don't quite feel the same do leave us a comment below and let us know what you just loved.

It's the ultimate game of sacrifice where sometimes you've just…

4 reasons why Langrisser Mobile will give Fire Emblem: Heroes a run for its money

Having first launched in the early '90s, Langrisser and Fire Emblem have been considered the two titans of turn-based RPG's for almost 20 years now. It's fortuitous then that both popular franchises will soon be available on mobile – with the release of Fire Emblem Heroes last year and Langrisser Mobile's upcoming launch in the new year. The developer behind Langrisser Mobile has had all this extra time to perfect the SRPG formula so we've taken a look at some of the areas where it aims to improve upon its rival. Larger maps One of the first thing you'll notice about Langrisser Mobile when it launches next year are the size of its maps, which are expansive to say the least. Rathe…

Here's what you missed last week on Pocket Gamer's YouTube channel

Hello and happy Tuesday, one and all. It's been a minute since I last blathered on here on AppSpy and figured it might be a good idea to catch you guys up on what our/Pocket Gamer's YouTube channel had been up to last week. Since it was a flurry of Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales, it was pretty busy over on Pocket Gamer last week, so sorry about my absence. Good ol' James has had you well covered though with a variety of videos for your viewing pleasure. Bill and Ted's Wyld Stallyns You might have seen this game creep out a couple of weeks back, but now that James has gotten his hands on it you can see what it's like up-close and personal. Er, we wish we could tell you that it's the g…

Good morning, afternoon, or evening, friends. It's finally Friday again, the best day of the week, and that means we get to make our 'to do' lists for the weekend. What? You don't make a list? Well then, don't I look foolish?

Anyone new here – Pocket Gamer's official YouTube channel used to be AppSpy's, but we're all part of the same family so just roll with it and enjoy. Help! I'm Haunted Fans of retro platformers shou…

The top 5 bite-sized golf games on iOS

The top 5 bite-sized golf games on iOS

I've been feeling in a real golfing mood lately. Of course, when I say 'golfing' I don't ever mean super serious Tiger Woods-style golfing, I'm talking about something more bite-sized and adorable. Playing on mobile, I don't really want to get into anything too fussy and the shorter I can play a round, the better. It's still whacking balls in holes (hold your laughter, you fiends) but I've never said no to anything with a cool design or bit of a different outlook on the whole thing. The ironic part is in real life, golf bores me to tears unless the word 'putt-putt' is in front of it. If you're the same and you love those shorter-style bits and bobs, I'm fairly confident you'll love these g…

Top 5 iOS games with dragons in them

After many months of waiting and watching, Spyro the Dragon is finally out with its lovely remaster and I, for one, am very excited. So excited, that I'm feeling like we should celebrate our purple friend by checking out how dragons are celebrated on mobile. Why? Well, why not? From riding them into battle, having them destroy cities, grow into even grander beasts, or even just becoming the crazy cat lady of dragons, you'll be feeling the heat with these titles. Sadly, Spyro isn't available on iOS, but you'll definitely scratch that reptilian itch at the very least.

Indie puzzler Golf Peaks joins the iOS club

Golf Peaks is a pint-sized puzzler aimed at absolutely everyone, and it’s just gone live on the App Store. Developed by indie studio Afterburn, the game was built over the course of five months with simplicity and accessibility in mind, so you don’t need to be the next Tiger Woods to get involved. In fact, you don’t need any knowledge of golf at all! Golf Peaks challenges players to guide a ball up a series of mountains using a card-based movement system. There are more than 70 levels to tackle across six worlds and mini golf-themed multiplayer bouts to add extra longevity after you’ve finished the campaign. Although golf was the inspiration for the game, you don…

BRIX! Block Blast brings stacks of fun to mobile

Here we are at the end of another week and it's been a pretty busy one overall. Though things haven't been crazy here on AppSpy, over on Pocket Gamer there's been a bucket-load of reviews to get through and, of course, a few videos by James on the official YouTube channel. Where we saw the likes of PAKO Forever, SHUMP, and Old School RuneScape last week, this time around it's more about boats, triggers, and muscly, moustachioed men, and we love it. I've also been a bit cheeky and slipped in one of our other weekly projects and, in my defence, James DOES run it so it's basically related. Maybe the inappropriate auntie or third-removed cousin of the family? I'm just talking to myself now. Bl…

The top 5 digital pet games for iOS

If you've ever wanted to take care of a pet without the mess or fuss, digital creatures might be the ideal things for you. You can walk them, pet them, feed them, and clean them, all without leaving the house. How marvellous! Even if you own a dog or cat or rabbit or bird, these five games might still make you go 'aww' when playing them. Personally, I spam Instagram and Twitter enough with pictures of my cat, so I try to steer away from anything else adorable when I can. It's hardly ever successful though, I'll admit. Axolochi – download on iOS If you fancy a digital pet that's a bit different, you might do well with an adorable axolotl. These cute underwater creatures come in a var…
