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

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

We've got to the end of the first week of the year. I expect your hangovers have finally subsided now, and you're back neck deep in the drudgery of your 9 to 5 existence. Ah well, it's the weekend now, two days to sit around and recover enough energy to survive for the five days after. But there's still time for a little bit more content. And that content is here, in the shape of a round up of the best games that came out this week on the App Store. It's not been the best week ever, but then that's only to be expected really. And technically we're covering about a week and a half, but that's not the point. Still, there's a decent enough line up here. As usual you can click on the emboldene…

Everything you need to know about Antihero for iPhone and iPad

Feels like only yesterday it was Wednesday. Probably because it was. Now it's Thursday, and that means it's time to give you the low down on the one new game on the App Store that you should definitely be playing this week. It's fair to say that it hasn't been the most exciting week for releases, but that's always the case in the post Christmas lull. Still, there has been some wheat among the chaff, including the really rather excellent game I'm going to recommend to you today. As usual, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you'd like to share your own, no doubt very deep and meaningful, thoughts, feel free to do it in the comments section at the bottom of…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - January 3rd

The tree is down, the presents you didn't like have all been returned or thrown into the bin, and now we're back to trudging through the misery of winter without a single thing to look forward to. Well there might be things to look forward to, like wasting your money on things you don't really need. Which is good, because Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. There are some surprisingly good new deals out there, so much so that I actually had to pick which ones to talk about rather than just picking the first five semi-decent games I saw. You can poke the emboldened name of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've se…

The AppSpy end of year awards: The 3 best games for iPhone and iPad of December 2017

Here we are then, the last part of our look back at 2017 in mobile gaming. And, as usual, December was chock full of awesome games that you should definitely have already played. Don't worry if you haven't though, because we've provided links to download them. If this list has proven anything, I think it shows that mobile gaming has something to offer everyone. From incredible, mesmerising experiences, to small, more intimate stories. Here's hoping that 2018 can deliver the same. Oh, and make sure you keep coming back to AppSpy in the new year, because we're going to cover it all. That's right, ALL OF IT.

Okay, we're in the penultimate part of our round-up of the best games of the year. It's November now, we all remember some stuff that happened in November, right? I think I went over there, probably. I definitely had a lovely sleep or two. Tomorrow we're going to hit the games of December. In the meantime though, if you've not checked out the other parts of this series, poke the links below to check them out. And then we'll put this all to bed tomorrow. Lovely, lovely bed.

Welcome back to the ninth chunk of our look back at the best games that came out on the App Store this year. We're into September. The leaves are starting to change colour. I mean, I know we're not and they're not, but I'm just trying to set the mood. There are links below to all of the other parts of the series so far, there's some great games in those lists. Seriously. Tomorrow we're going to be up to October. October is probably spooky, I don't know. My brain is turning into mush.

And we're up to August 2017 in our round-up of the best games of the year. August was warm. Or it might have been cold. I don't really remember. It was a long time ago, a lot has happened since then. I think I spent most of the month asleep in hotels. Anyway, you can click below to check out the rest of the parts of this series. I hope you do, I've put a lot of work into this. Come back next week and we'll go back to school with September 2017. Surely I must remember something that happened then.

We're over half way through our round-up of the best games that came out in 2017. It's July now, you were probably wearing sunglasses in July. I wore sunglasses for the entirety of July. It made doing my work very difficult. You can find the rest of the months we've covered below. Tomorrow it'll be August. It's my birthday in August. I very much doubt that that's going to make it onto the list, but who knows? Stranger things have happened.

In part five of our round up of the best games that came out on the App Store this year, we're going to look at May. I mean, it's the fifth month of the year, it'd be pretty insane to look at anything else really. Missed the other bits of our retrospective?

Today we're up to February in our round up of the best games that landed on iOS this year. February was a pretty good month, if you're into shooting, thinking, and murdering teenagers.

It's that time of year again. We're all getting excited that 2017 is nearly over, looking forward with naïve hope that maybe, just maybe, 2018 is going to be slightly better. But there's still time to squeeze some content out of the dregs of the year. So what we're going to do here at App Spy is have a look back at the last 12 months of iOS gaming, and tell you which were the three best games that came out each month in 2017. Because that's just the sort of thing we like to do. January 2017 The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth It might be a port, it might not be perfect on mobile, but The Binding of Isaac is still one of the best roguelikes you can download from the App Store.
