Why you should be playing Jaws.io for iOS and Android

Why you should be playing Jaws.io for iOS and Android

Jaws.io really has no right to be as good as it is. It's a movie tie-in game for a series that hasn't actually been any good for about forty years. And it's a .io game, most of which are just shovelware clones of other, more successful games. And yet, it manages to be one of the most compulsive and entertaining multiplayer mobile games we've played in a while. The first thing you'll notice when you play the game are the two distinct roles. If you're a boat you're trying to save people, and using your cannons to try and kill the titular devil shark. But when you earn enough points, or manage to kill the toothy monster, you'll become the sea-faring flesh eater. From there you need to eat as…

Our pick of the top iPhone and iPad game of the week - Linn: Path of Orchards

It was pretty tough to pick just one game to recommend to you this week, but since that's what we do every Thursday here at AppSpy, it seemed like it was a good idea to give it a go. We managed it too, just about - we reckon this week you should definitely give Linn: Path of Orchards a go. Why? Well for one thing it's one of the most interesting platformers we've seen on the App Store in a good long while. It takes ideas from the likes of Monument Valley, but rather than riding on those coattails, it tries something new with them. Like being in 2D, for example. You don't have any control over the world here either - it moves and changes as you dart around the tight little levels, and you n…

Legacy is the latest game from Peter Molyneux - here's everything we know

It's been announced that Peter Molyneux is working on his next game. It's called Legacy, it's being built by the team at 22Cans (yup, the same developers behind Curiosity and Godus), and while we don't know much about it right now, we thought it was important to let you know as much as we could. After all, Peter Molyneux is one of the biggest names in game development, so anything that he touches is well worth talking about. Also, Legacy looks like it might actually be awesome - a return to the games that made Molyneux such a famous name and face in the first place. What is Legacy? The game is a city builder, which is based on the first game that Molyneux ever made, all the way back in 19…

One to watch - Knights of the Card Table is coming out for iPhone and iPad this week

We really like solo card games here at AppSpy. And no, before you say anything, it isn't because we don't have any friends. It's because, more often than not, solitaire experiences offer up nifty, tactile strategy, without getting too bogged down in fiddly controls and massive maps. That's definitely the case with Knights of the Card Table, which is set to hit the App Store later this week. The game is a dungeon crawler with an awful lot of differences. For one thing, you can rearrange the cards that make up the dungeon as you see fit. Got a strong monster you need to take down in the first card slot, and a potion that's going to toughen you up in the last? Swap them round, bulk up, and giv…

The global launch for fantasy RPG Final Blade has arrived

Finally, Final Blade has arrived on the App Store and Google Play in all its fantasy RPG glory. The expansive RPG launched by Skypeople in association with Glohow has already amassed an impressive fanbase in Taiwan and South Korea, thanks in large part to its glorious visuals, frequent events, and compelling narrative. The core mechanics will perhaps be familiar to genre aficionados, with tons of loot drops, upgradable skills, and an impressive upgrade system to boot. Thankfully, there are plenty of modes to try your preferred loadouts on, including an intense heist mode known as Black Gold. Before getting into all that, you’d be wise to spend some time in the Adventure Mode. Here,…

Airheart is a dieselpunk action game set in the sky, brand new to Nintendo Switch

Explore the big blue sky in the newest Nintendo Switch release, Airheart. This rogue-like game, courtesy of indie studio Blindflug, won the Big Indie Pitch at Gamescom 2018. Now Switch players can join the high-altitude action, and even play alongside friends in the exclusive co-op mode. The story starts with a girl called Amelia Airheart (a nice reference for history buffs and mystery lovers). She dreams of adventure high above the clouds beyond her home, the sky city of Granaria. You take control of the aspiring pilot as she navigates up, level by level. As you go, you’ll have to fight sky pirates and hunt flying fish. Harvest parts and weapons from the scrap of your defeated enem…

Our pick of the top iPhone and iPad game of the week - Elemancer

Card games on mobile usually fit into one of two groups - you've got the heavyweight experiences like Hearthstone on one hand, and simpler variations on solitaire like Mind Cards. Elemancer is something different though - because it tries to sit in the space between those two extremes. It really works as well. The battles here take as much from the likes of Clash Royale as they do from Hearthstone - they're short and sharp, and the moves you can make are more restricted, but that doesn't detract from the entertainment one iota. In fact the speed ramps things up quite nicely. When you're not fighting you're building up your home base. There's a mine to tap gems out of, and a variety of diff…

Everything you need to know about Revolve8 for iPhone, iPad, and Android

Revolve8 has just landed on the App Store. It's a brand new RTS game developed by Sega, and we thought you might like to know as much about it as possible before you download it and give it a try. That's why we've written this article. If you've got any questions that we haven't answered here, and you'd like us to take a punt at them, then chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. By the same token, if you've played Revolve8 we'd love to hear what you thought of the game. What is Revolve8? It says that it's an RTS, and while all of those letters are represented here, we'd actually put it in the mobile MOBA bracket. There are definite shades of Clash Royale here - fr…

Everything you need to know about The Stillness of the Wind for iOS

Every week here at AppSpy we like to give you the heads-up about a game that's coming out soon that we think you should be getting excited about. This week, we've selected the emotional post-apocalyptic goat-farming simulator The Stillness of the Wind. And we're going to tell you why. The game sees you playing as an old woman who's tending her goat farm in the middle of the collapse of civilization. The story comes to you from snatches of messages brought by a travelling salesman. You still need to feed your goats as well, and make sure the farm doesn't fall into disrepair. This is set to be a slow game, with a focus on the connections between the characters, and how they fit into the worl…

It turns out that smash hit mobile FPS Guns of Boom was almost a PC game

You've probably heard of Guns of Boom. It's one of the most exciting FPS games available from the App Store, and sees teams of players trying to take and hold objectives in fast-paced and super fun battles. Interestingly though, things could have been very different. In a case study just released by Unity. Game Insight, the dev behind Guns of Boom, explains that at the start of the game's life, it was actually being built for PC. As recently as 2015, there was a playable version of Guns of Boom, designed and built for computers rather than mobiles and tablets. The change over to mobile was made much easier by the fact that the game had been developed in Unity. That meant that when Game Ins…

Our pick of the top iPhone and iPad game of the week - Tacticool

Every Thursday here at AppSpy we like to make sure that you know what the most exciting game that's come out over the past seven days. And today is no different. This week's game of the week is the awesome Tacticool, a top-down multiplayer shooter that's just landed on the App Store. The game sees you taking control of a soldier, teaming up with friends or strangers, and taking on another team in fast-paced military shooting action. And while that blasting core is solid, it's the other little layers that Tacticool puts down that make this such an interesting prospect. For one thing there are vehicles you can jump in. Grab a friend and they can man the gun on the back of a truck while you d…

Rocket Royale is a new take on battle royale, out now on iOS and Android

Since PUBG and Fortnite parachuted onto mobile last year, there has been an influx of battle royale titles onto the app stores but not all of them have been second-rate clones. Rocket Royale attempts to bring something new to the genre with its focus on crafting. Developed by GameSpire, the game puts its own twist on PvP by tasking players with escaping from an island, rather than emerging as the last one standing on it. A DIY rocketship is your ticket home, and you must build it by harvesting resources from fallen meteors and recycling debris from environmental destruction. Virtually everything in Rocket Royale can be blown up and repurposed and players can also use these raw materials to…

What a Netflix-style streaming service might mean for mobile gaming

The big news in the mobile gaming world this week surrounds rumours that Apple might be interested in creating a Netflix-for-gaming style subscription service on the App Store. It's certainly an interesting idea, and if there's any store that's position to deliver on such a scheme, it feels like it could be the App Store. There have been plenty of attempts to make streaming games more mainstream - most of the major consoles have some form of streaming option, and then there was OnLive, and the other services that have tried to capitalise on the desire for speedily delivered digital entertainment. But mobile gaming feels like it's already dealt with a lot of the problems that are inherent i…
