The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - April 28th

Friday is here. That means when you go to bed tonight, you don't have to get up for work tomorrow. Unless, of course, you do have to get up for work tomorrow. In which case I'm sorry. Maybe lay off the lemon sherberts tonight, eh, otherwise you won't sleep. Anyway, if you want some mobile entertainment for the weekend, we've got your back. We've got your back in the shape of the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. We are so good to you. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. Er, I think that covers everything that you need to know. So, yeah, go about your business.

The Thursday Find - Binary Dash

This week's Thursday Find is a shiny platformer that's got a lot going for it. It's slick, it's fun, and while it isn't the most original game you've ever played, you are going to have a blast playing it. What's a Thursday Find? Why every Thursday here at AppSpy we dig out a gem that's come out this week on the App Store. And we tell you a bit about it. And then tell you to go and download it. It's one of the many services we provide here. And you can download this week's game by clicking on its emboldened name just below this paragraph. But what game is it? Well that's a very apt question, and you're about to find out the answer. No, really, you are. Binary Dash There are a whole l…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - April 26th

Oh look it's Wednesday. Wednesday is the day when we round up the best games on sale on the App Store right now. So that is exactly what we're going to do. And we're going to do it with a smile on our faces and a song in our hearts. There are some real crackers in the list this week, so you should probably buy all of them to further grease the wheels of the capitalist machine. I mean, them wheels aren't going to grease themselves now, are they? As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them from the App Store. I think that covers everything you need to know. Now go forth and consume content. It'll be great. Tsuro - £2.99 / $2.99 A digital version…

The best free iPhone games - The AppSpy list

Oh hello. How's it going? I hope you're well. I've decided to start something a little bit special here on AppSpy. It's a list, but it's unlike any list you've ever seen before in your entire life. Because it's a list that's going to keep growing. It's a list of the best free games on iPhone, and every week I'm going to be adding five more. One day the list will probably become sentient and take over the world. But until that day, it's just going to offer you a chance to find out the best free games on the App Store. So without further ado let's throw ourselves head first into this frankly ridiculous idea. Oh, and you can click the emboldened names of the games to wander off to the App Sto…

Here's everything you need to know about Angry Birds Islands

There's a new Angry Birds game out. Well, it's not out OUT, but it has been soft launched in a few places. And our lovely video chap James has played it. And then made a video of himself playing it. Because that's what people use the internet for nowadays. You can watch the video below. Anyway, I thought it'd be a good idea to round up everything we know about Angry Birds Islands in one handy to digest piece of content. In fact, this easy to digest piece of content. The one you're reading right now. Without further ado then, here's all of the important stuff you need to know about Angry Birds: Islands.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - April 21st

And it's the usual content, as you might be expecting. Fridays we like to take a look at the five best games that have come out on the App Store this week. So that's what I'm going to do.

The Thursday Find - Get Me Outta Here

Thursday. I have nothing to say about Thursday. Let us just get on with this and hope that Friday is a little bit more exciting than Thursday. This week's Thursday Find is an interesting arcade shooter that takes a while to build up a head of steam. But when it does it becomes a thrashing lunatic of rolling and blasting that you can tailor to your needs. But what is it? Well you're about to find out. Oh, and as per usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And by it I mean... Get Me Outta Here You wake up in an alien spaceship. You're being probed. Probably. It's pretty rubbish either way. So you do the only sensible thing - go on a m…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - April 19th

Well, it's Wednesday again. How did that happen? Did someone fast forward the weekend? Was it you? If it was I'm very disappointed in you. Try slowing it down next time, yeah? I don't know, some people. Anyway Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. So I've just gone right ahead and done that for you. Even though you might have fast forwarded the weekend. It's just how I rule.

The Tuesday best of - Point and click adventures for iPhone and iPad

It's Tuesday. You probably noticed I wasn't around on Friday and Monday. It's not because I'm lazy, it's because they were holidays in the UK. Fret not though, because I'm back, and I've got lovely content for you to ogle. First up we've got our Tuesday best of. And since there's a new Telltale game out, based on Guardians of the Galaxy, I thought it'd be fitting to look at some of the best point and click adventures on mobile. As usual, you can click on the name of the game below to go and download them. And if you haven't played any of them, I suggest you should do just that. Yup. Uh huh. Okay then.

Here's everything you need to know about Pokemon GO's eggstravaganza update for iPhone and Android

Easter is here, and that can only mean one thing. Pokemon GO has been updated! Actually it probably means a lot more than that, but that's the thing I'm focusing on because I don't know how much content I'd be able to get out of eggs and zombie Jesus. So instead I'm going to write about the Pokemon GO eggstravaganza. So I guess I am writing about eggs. Look, it's been a long day and I don't know where my wallet is so let's just try and get this over and done with then we can all go have a nice long weekend. What is it?

The Thursday Find - Mallow Drops

Well would you look at that? It's Thursday already. How on earth did that happen? Oh, because of the relentless progression of time, coupled with the capitalistic structure of work and rest imposed on our lives. Fun and games. Speaking of fun and games, Thursday is when we tell you about a game that's come out this week that you definitely should play. And this week is no difference. This time around we've found you a clever and engaging puzzler with a lovely art style and some really neat ideas. But what is it? Why it's...

Transformers Forged to Fight guide - Part 1: The basics

How do you feel about giant robots punching the living robo-snot out of each other? You're into it? Cool, then you're probably going to love Transformers: Forged to Fight. It's a one on one brawler featuring Autobots and Decepticons from various different time-lines. But what if you want to be the best robo-battler the world has ever seen? Well you're going to need some sort of guide to help you out. Possibly a guide split into a number of different parts. Like this one. Today we're going to look at the basics of the gameplay, to make sure you're off to a good start. Come back tomorrow and we'll look into some of the slightly more confusing free to play aspects of the game. Punch, big pun…

The Tuesday best of - Sonic The Hedgehog games for iPhone and iPad

Well, it looks like there's another Sonic mobile game on the way. I think maybe there's always another Sonic mobile game on the way. Because, y'know, Sonic. Anyway, that made me think it was high time to rank the blue speedster's mobile outings to date, and then present those findings in some sort of list form. Which is exactly what I'm going to do in a bit. As always you can click on the emboldened name of the game to download it.

With King looking for developers to work on its new Call of Duty game, I thought it was high time to look at the Call of Duty games that are already out on mobile.
