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? Rather than me gabbing on at you about what things I'll be doing with my time or what I think you should be doing with yours (answer: anything you damn-well please), I prefer to bring the past week of epic videos from Pocket Gamer's YouTube channel to your attention. 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

The puzzle genre on mobile is beginning to look more crowded than the screen at the end of a Tetris session, but there’s always room for fresh innovation, and that’s what newcomer BRIX! Block Blast brings to the table. Developed by Genera Games, BRIX! Block Blast is a block-matching puzzler for iOS and Android, and it’s ready to take shake up the genre by introducing players to new mechanics.

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…

I think I speak for everyone when I let out a massive "ahhhhhh" and get ready to kick my feet up as the weekend peers in. But, we can't get too comfortable just yet, oh no. Before the alarm gets shut off and the pyjamas stay on, we should have a quick look at what's been happening with video this week. By now you should know that AppSpy's video channel has changed to Pocket Gamer's official YouTube channel. Don't worry, it's only the name that's changed if it's totally new to you, and it's the same fantastic content. Since James was on holiday until a few days ago, there isn't a tons of stuff to get through. Saying that, as always it's high quality and interesting stuff. Old School RuneSc…

The top 5 free to play mobile RPGs for iOS

Though it's always worth keeping an open mind when it comes to premium mobile games and paying for content, sometimes you don't have to spend an arm and leg to play something truly amazing. If you get a game that manages to smash style and substance successfully, you're in for a treat. Yes, these five RPGs are free to play, but they stand out because of their quality and general content. That's enough of my rambling though. If you're looking for a decent RPG to play this instant, but don't have the cash to spare you'll get on nicely with these.

5 excellent cowboy games for iOS

Yeehaw! I don't know about you, but the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is still fresh as a daisy in my mind and I explored a fair few miles of mountains and wild country at the weekend (digitally). Who doesn't love drinking, gambling, and riding around in the blistering heat on horseback, eh? It got me thinking though – what about cowboy games on mobile? Western-themed titles aren't an outlier by any mark, but which ones are definitely worth playing? Sadly, there's no Red Dead official 'blah's on iOS just yet, besides the companion app, but these should give you the same gun slinging, rooting tooting vibes.

Mad Rocket: Fog of War brings base-building with a twist to mobile

After doing the rounds in soft launch and attracting positive feedback from an army of fans, base-building strategy Mad Rocket: Fog of War has debuted on mobile devices worldwide. The game offers a novel take on the formula made popular among iOS and Android users by the likes of Clash of Clans and Forge of Empires. Building and destruction are your bread and butter but the eponymous Fog of War differentiates the game from its rivals. Battles play out on a tile-based map and you’ll spend most of your time laying siege to enemy bases, while keeping one eye on yours. But there’s a twist: the opposition’s strongholds are completely shrouded in fog, so you’re essentia…
