The best tips and tricks for Dune for iPhone and iPad

So you've gone right ahead and downloaded Dune, the new game from Voodoo. You're sat there looking at it, wondering why your scores aren't the greatest scores that anyone has ever gotten in the game. Well fret ye not little one, because we're here to help. If you're not familiar with the game, it's sort of like Tiny Wings. But there's a bit more going on than that. And rather than chasing distance you're chasing points. Lovely, lovely points that are going to make your family proud of you and probably get you that promotion you've been chasing at work. So strap in, sit tight, look at the screen, and we'll walk you through a bunch of hints and tips to ensure that you're smashing those high…

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. And since it's Friday, like it always is on Fridays, that means we're going to round up all the best games that came out on the App Store this week. So that'll be fun. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've spotted anything that caught your eye that we've missed, feel free to chuc…

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…

Well it's Wednesday again. Doesn't time fly when you're doing all of the stuff and you don't take a moment to lay down on the grass and just let time stand still all around you. Oh that does sound nice doesn't it? But what if you want something to play while you're laying down on the grass. And you don't have that much money? Well then you're going to need a list of all of the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. Which is good, because that's what we do on Wednesdays here at AppSpy.

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

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

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…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - October 13th

Whether you like it or not, we've reached the end of another week. Some of us have done things, some of us have done stuff, some of us have spent too much time asleep on their sofa. But it's done with now. We'll turn over a new leaf on Monday, right? Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And it's been a pretty sparkly week for mobile gaming all told. We got some ports, we got some exclusives, and everything that came out, for the most part, was pretty darn good. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've spotted anything else you think should be on the list,…

The Thursday Find - Kick Ass Commandos

Thursday has barrelled into view like a drunken bear stumbling through the woods in search of picnic baskets to snaffle. Silly Thursday, what are you like eh? Always stomping around and getting up to mischief. Anyway this Thursday we're going to do a Thursday Find. It might be the last one, I haven't decided yet. If it isn't, next week's is going to be a little different. So if you're a fan of the content you'd best get snuggled in, because things are going to be changing in seven day's time. As usual though you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you wanted to say anything in the comments, they're down at the bottom of the article.…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - October 10th

You might have noticed some changes on AppSpy over the past few days. We're just shaking things up a bit, trying to find what's good and what sticks and what y'all like. However, some things aren't going to change. Like Wednesdays. Why would you change Wednesday? That means we're still going to be rounding up the best games that are on sale this week. Five of them, because everyone knows that five is the internet's magic number. This week's not the strongest of weeks, but there are definitely some games worth checking out. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you've spotted anything you think should have been included in this list make…

Hints, tips, and tricks for Rolly Vortex

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

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…

Friday is happening. Friday is happening all around us. There's nothing anyone can do about it, so let's just roll with the punches and see what happens. This crazy rollercoaster ride is going to have to come to an end at some point, whether we want it to or not. If you'd like some entertainment while the carriages shoot up and down though, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out this week on the App Store. Quite frankly it's a bit of an odd week, but bear with me because I think there's some decent games to be found if you're willing to persevere. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got y…

The Thursday Find - REKT

Well hello there. It's nice to see you. Been a while. Been up to anything nice? You didn't!?! Really? That is certainly a turn up for the books. Although you should probably go to the doctor and get that checked out. Y'know, just in case. Anyway, you might have noticed that it's Thursday. And that means it's time to do a Thursday Find. That's when we pick the one game that's come out this week that you definitely, definitely should be playing. And quite frankly this week the choice was pretty damn simple.

Another Wednesday is here. I hope you're all having an excellent week so far. There's a lot going on in the world though isn't there? Wouldn't it be nice if you could get some mobile videogame bargains to distract you from all of the horror. And if someone made a list of all the best ones going cheap on the App Store right now? Oh, wait, that's what we do on Wednesdays around these parts. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? I know I certainly do. And there are some classic games going for a song this week.

The Tuesday Best of - Stunt racing games

It's October 3rd. There seem to be a lot of people posting a picture to that effect around the internet, so I figured I'd jump in on the action like the content legend that I am. It's also Tuesday, and we all know what that means around these parts. That's right, it means it's time for another instalment of the Tuesday best-of, everyone's favourite post where I round up the best games in a specific mobile genre. And today is going to be no different. Today we're going to look at the best stunt car games on iOS. It's mainly to celebrate the fact that REKT came out this week, and I really really like REKT. As you'll be able to tell if you read the next paragraph. Anyway, click the emboldened…
