The Tuesday Best of - SNK Playmore games for iPhone and iPad

Well, it's Tuesday now. Doesn't time fly. I'll let you in on a little secret though – it's actually still Monday for me, but thanks to the wonders of scheduling, I'm talking to you from the past. I guess, in a way, I'm always talking to you from the past. There's something for you to have a ponder about. Whichever way you look at it, Tuesday is always the day when we do our best-of. It's called the Tuesday best-of, after all, it'd be crazy to do it on another day. Just proper bonkers. So I'm doing it today. Or yesterday. Wow this is confusing. This week we're going to look at the best SNK Playmore games on the App Store. There's three bonafide classics here, and while they might not…

The Monday Musing - Is AR gaming the future of mobile?

The Monday Musing - Is AR gaming the future of mobile?

Well, Monday has stumbled over, yelling about what an amazing weekend it had. It probably didn't do any of things it's telling you, but just nod and smile and tell it that it sounds like it had a blast and hopefully it'll go away pretty soon. The only good thing about Monday is that it's when I get to write the Monday Musing, which as I'm sure you'll agree is the single greatest piece of regular content that's ever had the word Monday in its title. Don't try and think of any others, you won't be able to. Anyway, this week I'm going to have a good old muse about AR gaming. Is it the future of mobile, or is it another flash in the pan that's going to fizzle about before it's even really fizz…

Well, would you look at that. We've all made it to Friday. I'm proud of us. Especially you. Yeah, that's right, you. You know what I'm talking about. That thing? You've done real well this week, and I reckon next week is going to be even better for you. But if you want a mobile video game to set up next week for you, which one should you choose?

The Thursday Find - Portal Walk

Oh look, it's Thursday. Time, as ever, is moving inexorably onwards. Soon the heat death of the universe will be upon us and then, finally, the content can stop being created. Not yet though. Not just yet. Thursday is when we regale you with the Thursday Find. It's the game we think you should be giving a go this week. If you only get one, then get this one. If you want more, then join us tomorrow when we list the five best games of the week. If there are five games worth mentioning that is. As per ever you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - August 16th

Hello there. It's Wednesday. So that's probably good. Especially if you like the days of the week. I don't like them. They are mean to me. I have to do things on them. What a life. What a silly, silly life. Anyway, Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store at the moment. It's a time-honoured tradition, and I'm not going to stop now just because people are screaming at me to get out of the building because it's on fire. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store.

The Tuesday Best of - Zombie games for iPhone and iPad

Well, we survived Monday. Unless you're a ghost or a zombie while you're reading this, in which case I'm sorry, but I'll try and tailor the site to your undead needs from now on. Wait a minute, the undead. That gives me an idea. There are loads of zombie games on the App Store in one shape or another, so it's probably time that someone wrote about which three are the best. I think you'll agree that that makes perfect sense. And if you don't agree, well that's your problem, not mine. You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them, and if you've got your own suggestions then feel free to add them in the comments at the bottom of the article.

The Monday Musing - The best Sonic The Hedgehog games for iPhone and iPad

There's a new Sonic game coming to the 3DS this week, so that's exciting if you've got one of those. If you're a cool mobile gamer who doesn't have a 3DS though, you've definitely come to the right place. You see, every Monday we have a bit of a musing. And this time around I'm going to muse about the best Sonic games that you can get on mobile. And some of them are going to be pretty shocking to you. They might not, I'm not really bothered either way to be honest. Anyway, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you think there should be something else on the list, feel free to add your suggestions in the comments down at the bot…

The Thursday Find - Standby

Thursday is here again. It's quite sunny and nice out, but that doesn't mean that the content train is going to get derailed. I'm far too much of a professional to go outside and play in some fountains. Instead, it's time for the Thursday Find. If you're new here you might not know what the Thursday Find is. Well, it's our weekly suggestion of the one game you should definitely be playing this week. And I reckon we've found you a doozy this time. So long as you actively hate yourself and avoid success at all costs. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - August 9th

Well, would you look at that. It's finally stopped raining. Again, this probably doesn't have any bearing on your existence if you don't live near me, but the sun is out again and I can feel the first soft caresses of autumn rolling in the window. This is a good thing. Especially if, like me, you have the constitution of a seal. With that in mind, or more likely, with none of that in mind, it's time to round up the best games on sale on the App Store right now. There are some pretty good games on the list this week, although it took me a while to find them, because they all went on sale earlier in the week. But I persevered, for you. As per, you can click on the emboldened names of the gam…

The Tuesday best of - Hellblade is out, so here are the best psychological horrors for iPhone and iPad

Well, it's Tuesday. I just went outside and got soaked to the skin. Don't go outside if you don't like getting wet and live near where I live. In fact it's probably best not to go outside at all if you live near where I live, it's pretty grim around here. And speaking of grim things, today has seen the release of Hellblade on PS4 and PC. It's a gritty hack and slash game with psychological horror elements. Obviously it's not going to come to mobile, but it did get me thinking - what are the best psychological horror games on the App Store? So that's exactly what I've gone and written. A list of the three best psychological horror games for iOS. You can download them by clicking on the embo…

The Monday Musing - Everything you need to know about Titanfall: Assault

Well, Monday has flobbled into view, weary from its exertions at the weekend, dreaming of a Tuesday that it knows will never come. Poor Monday, so despised by all and sundry, all it wants to do is live a little, but it never can. What it can do is provide the perfect platform for the Monday Musing. After all, both of the words start with M. It's like it was meant to be, pre-ordained in the glimmering ether. Or some such nonsense. This week I'm going to have a muse about Titanfall: Assault. It's a card-battler in the Clash Royale mould, and it's set to hit the App Store later this week. Here's everything you need to know about what the game has to offer. What is it? It's a real time strat…

I mean, yes, if you look at it in a logical way, I did miss Thursday's Thursday Find post. But you know what that means? You're going to get two pieces of excellent AppSpy content today.
