Hands-on with Vainglory, the magical Metal-powered mobile MOBA

Remember the Apple keynote a few weeks back? Remeber that studio with the silly name that came up on stage and demoed a really pretty MOBA? Well that game was Vainglory, and we've played the soft-launched version. Currently available for free in the Philippines, the game lets you take control of a variety of impressive looking fantasy beasties and set about laying waste to AI and online opponents. Pocket Gamer reviews man Harry Slater guides you through the basics of Vainglory in the video above.…

Brunettes Shoot Blondes music video for Knock Knock will ensure you never again look at your iPhone the same way

This is a bit off the beaten path, but hey, it's using mobile telephones for awesomeness, and that's what AppSpy is all about, so why not; 'Knock Knock' by Brunettes Shoot Blondes is a simply delightful music video that's doing the rounds at the moment. It uses 14 screens - mostly mobiles and tablets - in some ingenious ways, to tell the tale of two star-crossed lovers. Take a look, and let me know what you make of it in the comments.…


Is Assassin's Creed - Identity the mobile Assassin's Creed game we've been waiting for?

Is Assassin's Creed - Identity the mobile Assassin's Creed game we've been waiting for?

I'll keep this brief: Ubisoft has just soft-launched Assassin's Creed - Identity in Australia and New Zealand. Unlike the card games and companion apps Ubisoft has served up to iOS gamers in the past, this fully 3D "action RPG" is a close to a full-blown Assassin's Creed game as we've ever seen on mobile. Like its console counterpart, the game lets you explore ancient cities, leaping from rooftop to rooftop before stabbing-up some unsuspecting nobleman. Watch our hands-on with the soft-launch version of Assassin's Creed - Identity below. You can download the game right now if you live in Australia or New Zealand. The rest of the world will have to wait until 2015 for the game to go glob…

Johnny Scraps: Clash of Dimensions sees a pig beat the undead heck out of some evil skeletons

I'll bet that when you woke up this morning, you didn't think to yourself "I reckon today is the day I watch a very aggressive time-travelling pig smack the snot out of some prehistoric skeletons". But if you click play on the trailer below, that's exactly what you'll see. Johnny Scraps: Clash of Dimensions is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, and appears to be a hyperactive arena brawler with loads of levels, tons of enemies, and 10 game modes to conquer.

Surviving in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Episode 6 - Bone Talk

This week I decided to take our Surviving in Minecraft: Pocket Edition series to the Twitch stream. There were a couple of reasons for doing so. First, it meant that I could play the game for ages and make some real progress. Second, the community was on hand to answer any questions I might have, in the live chat window. Third, I just kinda fancied playing a bit of Minecraft, as I'm really getting into it at the moment. Also: Enderman.…

AppSpy nominated for a Games Media Award, offices now covered in bunting, confetti, cake

In a break from our regularly scheduled programming of awesome new trailers, hands-on impressions with unreleased mobile games, reviews of the hottest new titles, and generally faffing about on Twitch, today I've got some great news about AppSpy that I'd like to share with you. We've been nominated for an award! Huzzah! To be precise, it's a Games Media Award, which are kind of like the Oscars for journalists and other people who make editorial content about video games. AppSpy is nominated for Best Video outlet, and we're all super thrilled. James has taken his shirt off already, Danny's downing his Ultraman booze to celebrate, and I've reached out to Grazia to see if they want an inter…

@WeAreVigilantes shares new Imps in Tokyo video, I'm officially #intrigued

There's a lot of social media stuff going on in the new Imps in Tokyo trailer. Each of the monsters in the game is referred to as @Harvey, @Hester, @Louis, and so on, and each has their own hashtag to sum up their personality - @mrcornelious is #evil, apparently. The game itself looks to be an arcade-focused dodging and shooting game, with a rather wonderful cartoon look to proceedings. Imps in Tokyo is coming to iOS, and I must say that I'm kind of jazzed to see how it turns out. Sorry... #jazzed.…


Depth Hunter 2: Deep Dive could be the diving game we've been craving since Scuba Diver Adventures

Depth Hunter 2: Deep Dive could be the diving game we've been craving since Scuba Diver Adventures

Quick bit of backstory on this: Scuba Diver Adventures was an absolutely beautiful underwater escapade made by Biart that was almost ruined by heinous free-to-play shenanigans. Depth Hunter 2: Deep Dive appears to be the same sort of deal, made by the same people, only this time they're going premium. Consequently I'm extremely keen to get my hands on this one. Spearfishing, free diving, and underwater photography are all promised, across 25 missions and 3 locations. Depth Hunter 2: Deep Dive is out now on iOS priced $4.99 / £2.99 [App Store link]…

There's a new video out, and it's set our minds racing as to what this strange broadcast might be about. Who is "she", why is he trying to find her, and how has he not found this mystery woman after all these years? Watch this trailer, then pop your theories in the comments.

Hands-on with Air Race Speed, the fast but twitchy futuristic racer

Hands-on with Air Race Speed, the fast but twitchy futuristic racer

There are two things that a racing game needs in order to win me over. First is a sense of speed, and preferably a lot of it. Air Race Speed totally nails this element, as even with the slower ships you still feel like you're travelling incredibly fast. Second is a control setup that is responsive and accurate. This is where Air Race Speed stumbles a little, with its spotty touch and tilt controls. It's an interesting game concept though, and I think it'll find an audience. If you think that might be you, click play on the video below to find out for sure.…
