The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - November 17th

Well, the week is finally at an end. We had some laughs didn't we? We had some giggles? I'm pretty sure I saw some people other there engaged in just a little bit of banter. Basically what I''m trying to say is that we've had a jolly old time. But that jolly old time isn't coming to an end just yet. We've got one last bit of content to throw in your face before old father time claims the week as his own. And since it's Friday, it's a round up of all the best games that came out on the App Store this week. I thought you'd be pleased.

Everything you need to know about Shadow Fight 3 for iPhone and iPad

Okay, it's Thursday, so that means that it's time for the Thursday find. Except I've gone and changed the name of it, because quite frankly The Thursday Find is one of the worst possible SEO titles that I've ever heard for anything. I'm so sorry I've let you all down like this. Anyway, the format of the content is going to be basically the same. I'm going to pick a game, write some stuff about it, and give you a link to download it. It's pretty smart, right? It's just the name that has changed, so don't you worry too much, regular reader. So yeah, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you've got your own experiences to share, feel free to stick them in the c…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - November 15th

Wednesday has snuck up on us like some sort of big sneaky day. I don't know, I've only had one coffee so far today and quite frankly that is far from enough. I'm still bashing out content for you though, so don't complain too much. With it being Wednesday, it's time to round up the very best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. And I'll tell you what, there are some real doozies going cheap this week. In fact, I'm pretty sure there's something for everyone. Sort of. As usual you can smash a click on the names of the games below if you want to be taken away to the App Store. And if you think there's a game we should have included, but for some reason haven't, feel free to corr…

Everything we know so far about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for iPhone and Android

Yesterday we had a look at the game that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite should be copying. Today I thought we'd do something a little more traditional and look at all of the information we have about the game thus far. Sometimes, you just need to write the things that people actually want to read, I suppose. So here we go. I've rounded up the little slithers of info that have come out so far. And as and when we get more stuff, I'll make sure to update this little guide so that you're all the first to know what's going down. Oh, and make sure you check out what our sister site Pocket Gamer has to say about the new game as well. It's always got the hottest takes and the neatest sentence formati…

What Harry Potter: Wizards Unite can learn from The Order of the Phoenix game

The big news in mobile gaming last week revolved around everyone's favourite boy wizard. That's because Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was announced. It's an AR game built by Niantic. So that's the creators of Pokemon GO taking on one of the most beloved popular cultural phenomena of our time. Now, while other websites might be writing articles speculating about what the game might look like, and taking guesses at when the game is actually going to come out, I thought I'd do something a little different. After all this is App Spy, and we love to do things a little different around here. So I'm going to take a look at the Harry Potter game that Wizards Unite should copy. It is, in my humble op…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - November 10th

Oh thank whoever you like to thank for things, it's the end of the week. We can all curl up for two days and not have to face the horrors of being a grown up or having to put trousers on. What a delight. What a fine gift from our capitalist overlords. But before we slink away to the safety and comfort of our respective blanket forts, there's time for one more chunk of content. And as it's Friday that means that it's time to round up the best games that have landed on the App Store this week. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them.

Everything you need to know about South Park: Phone Destroyer for iPhone and iPad

Well, Thursday has rolled around, and the big release this week is South Park: Phone Destroyer.

After all, that's definitely the sort of thing that someone might Google, getting me them sweet, sweet SEO hits and what not. You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it.

Which is better, the Xbox One X, or the iPhone X? You might be shocked by the answer

You know what, I'm not even going to try and beat around the bush with this one, because let's be honest, that's not what you expect from me. It's time to have the show down to end all show downs, it's time to decide which is the best piece of new kit that came out recently that's got an X in its name. On the one side you've got the iPhone X, the tenth anniversary edition of Apple's world destroying mobile phone. On the other side you've got the Xbox One X, which as far as I can tell is a large, expensive doorstop. Sure, the new Microsoft console might have more X's in its name, but does that really matter? Well that's what we're going to find out, in a little piece of content I like to ca…

Is Dreamworks Universe of Legends suitable for younger mobile gamers?

Have you ever wondered what a team-up between Po from Kung-fu Panda, a dragon from How to Train Your Dragon, and another character from a third Dreamworks property might look like? No? Me neither, but some people probably have, and they're who I'm writing this content for. That's because Dreamworks: Universe of Legends came out last week. It's a free to play casual RPG featuring heroes from a whole bunch of Dreamworks animation properties. And it's quite a lot of fun, if you're into that sort of thing. But there are a few nooks and crannies that people who are unfamiliar with the genre might have trouble with, especially if they're younger players. And since that's pretty much who the game…
