Here's everything you need to know about Monument Valley 2 for iPhone and iPad

Here's everything you need to know about Monument Valley 2 for iPhone and iPad

Well that was a bolt out of the blue wasn't it? Monument Valley 2 didn't just get announced yesterday, it got released as well. And it's really rather special. Which obviously means it's time for some content. I thought it'd be a good idea to round up everything you need to know about the game in one handy place, so you're fully prepared for what's to come when you leap in. And you should leap in. Oh please leap in. Don't worry though, there aren't any spoilers here, because that would be a horrible thing to do. You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to grab it from the App Store. And I assure you, you really should. Monument Valley 2 What is it? It's the sequel to one o…

The Monday Musing - Which other Pokemon deserve their own spinoff game?

Well, Magikarp Jump is a game. It's quite a good game as well, so long as you don't mind playing games where you don't actually really do all that much. But it has stirred a thought deep within the recesses of my brain, and I have decided to release that thought onto the world. And I'm going to do it in the form of glorious, glorious content. This piece of content in fact. It's a list I like to call, what other Pokemon deserve their own standalone games. It seemed like a good idea when it first came to me, so I'm running with it. Agree? Disagree? Want me to write more posts that detail hypothetical games that fictional characters should become engaged in? Well let us know in the comments b…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - June 1st

Happy Friday. As everyone around here knows, Friday is the day of the week when we take stock, look at the mess we've made of the week, and try and make some sense of it. Or, in other words, we look at the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. It's not been a vintage seven days, to be honest, but after some of the gems we've had in the last few months that's only to be expected. Still, there are some pretty solid entries to the list this week, and that's not something to sniff at. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you think we've missed anything out, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comment section al…

The Thursday Find - Bouncy Hoops

Well it's Thursday, so that means it's time to pick one game that's come out this week that's really piqued my attention. It's a regular sort of thing I like to do around these parts, and it's called the Thursday Find. This week's discovery twangs at my nostalgic heart strings. Mainly because it involves basketballs setting on fire and one of my best gaming memories involves day-long sessions of NBA JAM. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. But what is this hallowed remembery game that I'm talking about? Why it's... Bouncy Hoops It might not have the scope of NBA Jam, but there's something compulsive about Bouncy Hoops all the same. It's a one-t…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - May 31st

It might feel like it's Tuesday, but I've got some news for you. It's actually Wednesday. Yeah, I was shocked when I worked that out too. Never mind though, it means it's time for a round-up of the best games on sale on the App Store right now. And there are some real gems that have had their prices slashed this week. So much so that I actually had difficulty deciding which ones to add to the list. I mean, not a lot of difficulty, but still, have some sympathy yeah? As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you've spotted a sale you think we should have mentioned, feel free to add it in the comments down there at the bottom of the article. C…

The Tuesday Best of - Telltale Games for iPhone and iPad

Well it's Tuesday, so I thought we should have a look at some games. Mobile games. Because, y'know, this is AppSpy, and that's basically what we're here for. And since The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is coming to an end soon, I thought it was high time to look at the three best series that Telltale has released on mobile so far. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think we've missed any, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comments below. Tales From the Borderlands It was a bit of a departure for Telltale this one, but in the end it was well worth your time. Set in the Borderlands universe, it's one of the slickest…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - May 26th

It's the end of the week, and if, like me, you're melting, you might be looking for a game to play in the fridge over the weekend to avoid the sun. But what game should you get? What are the tippest toppest games that have hit the App Store this week? Oh I dunno, it's probably the five I'm about to tell you about in this sexy hunk of gorgeous content. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of a game to download it.

The Thursday Find - Subdivision Infinity

Hello there Thursday my old friend. How are you doing? Are you literally so hot that I'm sat here in a bucket of ice water? Yes, yes you are. You horrible, horrible monster. But don't worry, because through the veil of sweat and heat haze I'm still going to create lovely content for you nicey nicey people. And since it's Thursday we're gonna do a Thursday Find. This week we're looking at a deep space shooter with a lot going for it. It's pretty, it has lots to do, and it sidesteps a lot of the problems of the genre on mobile. As usual you can click the emboldened name of the game to download it. But what is it? Why it's... Subdivision Infinity Swooping through space is always lots of fu…

Well it's Wednesday. That came around pretty quickly. Swooping in like some middle of the week eagle to remind us that we're the furthest from either weekend we've ever been. Thanks Wednesday. You jerk. With that in mind I think it's important to keep our spirits up. And what's more spirit-up-keeping than saving a bit of money on some excellent games? I legitimately can't think of a single thing. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it.

The Tuesday best of - Skateboarding games for iPhone and iPad

Well I never, it's Tuesday. Which means it's time to make some content. I mean, it's always time to make some content. I'm a content maker after all, I've got it written on my business cards and everything. Anyway, usually on Tuesday we have a look at a specific genre of games on the App Store and round up the best. So that's exactly what we're going to do right now. And this week we've got a special treat for you. Or at least we do if you like skateboarding games. If you don't you're bang out of luck. Because we're looking at skateboarding games today. Click on the emboldened name of the game to download it, as usual, and if you've got any recommendations of your own stick them in the com…

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…

Well if it isn't our old friend Friday. The last day of the working week, the harbinger of the week-end. Here to tempt us with its promises of lie ins and roasts and barbecues and long nights of endless shenanigans. But we've got one last piece of content to get through here at App Spy.

Well it's Thursday again. I guess somewhere it's always Thursday. No, wait, that's not how time works is it? Ah well, let's just get on with this and see where we end up. Friday probably.

It's Wednesday, which means it's time to round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. Look, I'm a stickler for tradition, okay? And if I don't stick to my routine, well, you don't want to know what might happen. Anyway, there are some real diamonds going cheap this week. I had to whittle the list down to just five, and believe you me it was a pretty difficult task. I got there in the end though, because I'm a professional.
