The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - October 20th

It's Friday again. The week is spinning towards its ignominious and no doubt messy end. By which I mean it's nearly the weekend and we're all probably going to go out and get real silly. I know I am. Real silly. You know what I mean. Anyway, there's still the small matter of one more bit of AppSpy content to round off the week in style.

The Thursday Find, our favourite game of the week - Time Recoil

Oh look it's Thursday again. I know I said things were going to change around here last week, but I've decided some things are better staying the way they are. At least for the time being anyway. But don't get too attached to anything, destruction is the nature of the universe. All of that means that we're going to do another Thursday Find. That's when we write about one game that you definitely should be playing this week. It was hard picking just one, but I think I've spotted an under-appreciated doozy that's going to make you go “oh, thanks for finding us that under-appreciated doozy, Harry.” As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from…

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Color Ballz for iPhone

Color Ballz is one of those little games that you're going to get horribly addicted to. I of course mean that in the best possible way. Like, you're not going to go out and mug old ladies just so you can get another hit. It's free, it's ad-supported, and it's an awful lot of fun. If you don't know what it is, allow me to enlighten you. Imagine a mix betwee Breakout and Pachinko. You're controlling a paddle at the bottom of the screen, and you need to hit falling balls into a funnel. The more balls you get in the funnel, the more points you get. There are a few twists though. You've only got a limited number of balls, and once they've all dropped below your paddle it's game over. Don't fret…

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Into the Dead 2

Into the Dead 2 is a pretty darn slick mixture of auto-runner and FPS. It's all about weaving through hordes of zombies, shooting them in the face while you can, and trying not to die. Although it's pretty cool when you die because you briefly get to see your own organs before you succumb to the nomming of the undead. But if you'd rather avoid getting your innards ripped out, you've come to the right place. We've put a good few hours into the game since it hit the App Store at the end of last week, and we reckon we've collated some slick-ass hints and tips to make sure you're going to get the most out of the game. So without further ado, let's get cocked, locked, and ready to rock. By whic…

Beginners Guide to Online Slots

It would be difficult to find anyone who has never played a slot games in their lives whether as a child on the one-armed bandits when on a day out or at the fair, but nowadays with the constant updates as technology advances we are presented with games that might be a little unfamiliar to many. Slots have actually been about since the 1800's with the first one named the Liberty Bell, and was basic in design having three reels and five symbols and you had to pull a lever to start the reels. This is where the term 'one armed bandit' originates from. Now we can enjoy video, classic, and 3D slots amongst many variations with some having progressive jackpots and all having their own specialise…

Hints, tips, and tricks for Rolly Vortex

Rolly Vortex is a game about, well, rolling through a vortex. I mean, you're pretty smart, you could probably have worked that out for yourself, right? I'm sorry, I'll try and be less patronising next time round. Anyway, just because you know what Rolly Vortex is, doesn't mean you're getting the most out of it. Sure it looks simple, but there are actually some hidden depths here, if you start poking around with your fingers and the other bits of you you use to find things out. Which is why I thought I'd cobble together a beginner's guide. Just to ensure that when you first come to rolling through that vortex you're going to be the best roller that the world has ever seen. Or at least in th…

Hints, tips, and tricks for No Brakes io

No Brakes io is a mix between all those .io games you've played and Amiga classic Skidmarks. In other words, it's a pretty twitchy racer that involves swooping your way around a series of different tracks. The big twist is that it's a multiplayer game, and the rewards you get at the end of the race are based on how high up the rankings you finished. Or if you finished at all. It might seem like a pretty simple proposition, but there's actually quite a lot going on here. So I figured it'd be a good idea to bash together a guide to make sure you're getting the most out of the experience. And always crossing that finish line first. Don't crash The key to the game is not crashing. Yes there…
