The Monday Musing - 3 games we'd like to see on Sega Forever

The Monday Musing - 3 games we'd like to see on Sega Forever

Welp, Sega Forever is a thing now. It's not quite a streaming service, more like a bunch of Sega games that you can get for nowt. Or pay for if you want to avoid seeing adverts all the time. It's a pretty neat idea, and apparently the big S is going to be updating the catalogue regularly with games from its extensive archive. Obviously that's lead me to a Monday Musing. I used to heart Sega with all of my heart, so I figured I'd have a think about three games that I'd love to see coming to Sega Forever sooner rather than later. And that's exactly what I've done. If there are games you'd like to see, feel free to chuck them in the comments down at the bottom of the article. Unless you're go…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - June 23rd

Friday is here. Hello Friday. You're looking very nice aren't you? Have you lost weight? That's a lovely jumper you're wearing. I like what you've done with your hair as well. I'm just super glad you're here I guess. I've missed you. You've probably missed Friday too. Because Friday at AppSpy is when we round up the best games that have hit the App Store this week. And it's been a pretty damn good week all round. Many not vintage, but somewhere in the top 12 percentile. I don't know what that means. Anyway you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if there's anything you think other people should be playing this week, toss those recommendations in the c…

The Thursday Find - Touchdowners

Thursday has come crashing in like a wedding-interrupting spurned suitor. Hey the rest of the week, it's probably shouting, don't get married to anyone other than me. Thursday will be ignored, the marriage will go ahead, and he'll feel like a silly sausage for a while. But here at AppSpy we like to spend our Thursdays telling you about a game you should definitely download this week. It's a regular feature, it's called The Thursday Find, and you are literally reading it right now. Pretty exciting, right? This week we've got a lovely gem for you. It's got a bit of everything - helmets, jumping, balls. What more could you want? You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to downlo…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - June 21st

Well Wednesday has really snuck up on us this week hasn't it? Before you know it it'll be Thursday. Then shortly after that it'll be Friday. Then we get two days of laying down before the whole awful carousel of life starts again. Yay. Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store this week. And I'll have you know that there are some proper gems in the offing this time round. Not like last week. Everyone glower at last week. As per ever you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you spot anything on sale that you think our lovely readers deserve to hear more about, you can do so in the comments…

The Tuesday Best of - Metroidvanias for iPhone and iPad

The Tuesday Best of - Metroidvanias for iPhone and iPad

Forma.8 came out last week. It's a clever twist on the metroidvania formula that sees you floating around gorgeous levels acquiring new skills along the way. It's slick and it's ever so slightly lovely. But it got me thinking about classic metroidvania games you could play on your iPhone. And that in turn set the content alarms screaming in my mind. Plus it's Tuesday, the day when we quite often round up three of the best games in a specific genre. Everything has fallen nicely into place. So here are the three best metroidvania games you can get on the App Store. Click on the emboldened names below to download them. And if you think I've missed anything, chuck your own suggestions in the c…

The Monday Musing - It's too hot, here are some hot games

It's too hot. Honestly, my brain isn't working. I live in a greenhouse. All I can think about is how hot it is. The answer to that is it is very hot. Hot hot hot. There is heat everywhere and I am incapable of escaping it. This may well be why I've gone ahead and written a piece of content about the best hot games on the App Store. Sure, it might not make much sense, but if you expected anything I did in this heat to make sense then you just don't know me at all. Click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you can think of other hot games, then put them in the hot comments so we can have a hot debate. It really is very hot.

The Thursday Find - Fowlst

Oh look. It's Thursday. The fourth day of the working week. There are probably other facts about Thursday that I could regale you with, but since this is AppSpy and not DayOfTheWeekSpy you probably won't be that interested. Instead let's do a Thursday Find. After all, that's the sort of thing we like to do on a Thursday. And this week we've got a pretty impressive little gem for you. Honestly, I had trouble choosing what to suggest you should play. Thankfully though, a pun showed me the way. Anyhow, as usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to swoop over to the App Store and download it. And if you think something else deserved to get the prestigious accolade this wee…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - June 14th

Oh look it's Wednesday again. That means it's time to have a look at the best games that are for sale on the App Store right now. To be honest it's a bit of a rubbish week for sales, but I've picked five games that are worth a look. It might make more sense to save your money for something else, unless you're really desperate to try out one of the games on offer here. As usual you can click on the emboldened names to download the various interactive entertainment experiences. And if you've spotted something you think we should have included feel free to let people know in the comments below. Framed - Free Definitely the diamond in the rough this week. If you've not played this one before…

The Tuesday Best of - Multiplayer shooters for iPhone and iPad

Modern Combat Versus has just soft launched in Australia and New Zealand. If you've not heard of it it's Gameloft's latest version of its shooty bang bang series, this time with a focus on multiplayer. Shoot men, shoot some more men, win points and make your shooty stuff better. You know the drill, soldier. So now seemed like a pretty good time to round up the three best multiplayer shooters that are available world wide on the App Store right now. Basically we're taking a moment to check out the competition. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to be whisked away to a safe and special place where you can download it.

The Monday Musing - What does E3 mean for mobile gaming?

The Monday Musing - What does E3 mean for mobile gaming?

Well it's that time of the year again. The good and the great and the average of the gaming industry have gathered in Los Angeles to paste giant billboards on the side of buildings and get the hype trains started for the latest AAA releases. But here at AppSpy we're far more concerned with the mobile side of things. And that got the cogs in my brain whirring round something rotten. It made me wonder whether mobile gamers should even be that bothered about what's going on at E3? So I decided to write a piece of content about it. After all, content makes the world go round. Or at least I assume it does. It could be something to do with science, but I tend not to bother myself with such unimp…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - June 9th

It's been a pretty good week for iOS gaming, all told. Obviously one release stands head and shoulders over all the others. You know the one I'm talking about. Don't worry if you don't though, we'll get to it in a bit. As per usual, we're going to round up the five best games that have hit the App Store this week. That's just the kind of gentle and caring souls we are here at AppSpy. Sharing is caring. And we care. A lot.

The Thursday Find - Super Sticky Bros

Thursday is upon us again, some of us are voting in a general election, and it's actually stopped raining where I am. Windows are open, shorts are on, so let's get this over and done with quickly so I can go play in the park. This week's Thursday find might not be the shiniest game on the App Store, but it is an interesting one. And sometimes that counts for a lot more than polish. As ever you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. But Harry, you're no doubt weeping, you haven't even told us what the game is. Oh yeah, sorry about that. It is, of course... Super Sticky Bros Ostensibly this one's a platformer. It's pretty unwieldy when you first start playing, b…

Hi Wednesday, how's it going? Oh, really? That's interesting.

Here's everything you need to know about Monument Valley 2 for iPhone and iPad

Well that was a bolt out of the blue wasn't it? Monument Valley 2 didn't just get announced yesterday, it got released as well. And it's really rather special. Which obviously means it's time for some content. I thought it'd be a good idea to round up everything you need to know about the game in one handy place, so you're fully prepared for what's to come when you leap in. And you should leap in. Oh please leap in. Don't worry though, there aren't any spoilers here, because that would be a horrible thing to do. You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to grab it from the App Store. And I assure you, you really should. Monument Valley 2 What is it? It's the sequel to one o…

The Monday Musing - Which other Pokemon deserve their own spinoff game?

The Monday Musing - Which other Pokemon deserve their own spinoff game?

Well, Magikarp Jump is a game. It's quite a good game as well, so long as you don't mind playing games where you don't actually really do all that much. But it has stirred a thought deep within the recesses of my brain, and I have decided to release that thought onto the world. And I'm going to do it in the form of glorious, glorious content. This piece of content in fact. It's a list I like to call, what other Pokemon deserve their own standalone games. It seemed like a good idea when it first came to me, so I'm running with it. Agree? Disagree? Want me to write more posts that detail hypothetical games that fictional characters should become engaged in? Well let us know in the comments b…
