The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - May 17th

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. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of a game below in order to download it. Make sure you join us next week for another five games. Trust me, you're gonna save so much money hanging out here. Eggggg - Free A platform game with a twist…

The Thursday Find - Miles and Kilo

It's Thursday. At least I think it's Thursday. I've been so messed up by bank holidays and long weekends that it could be Sunday for all I know. Anyway, I'm going to treat today like Thursday, so that means it's Thursday Find time. Every fourth day of the working week here at App Spy we like to recommend you, our beautiful and talented readers, a game that you should definitely play this week. And so that's exactly what I'm doing in this hot slice of content. This week we've got a super challenging platformer for you. It's mean, but also cuddly. So sort of like a bear. You'll be warm in its loving embrace, but you almost certainly won't be safe. As usual click on the emboldened name of the…

Wednesday has come stumbling along again, the slovenly dog. It's tired and its eyes hurt and it can't remember last weekend and it hasn't made any plans for the coming one either.

Here's everything you need to know about Titanfall: Assault

Here's everything you need to know about Titanfall: Assault

Titanfall: Assault is the second bite at the Titanfall mobile cherry. The second I hear you scream, but what was the first? Well that was Titanfall: Frontline, which got soft launched and then quietly cancelled. So yeah, second. This time around there's a lot more action to sink your teeth into. Again, the game is only in soft launch at the moment, but I though it'd be sensible to give you a heads-up about what the game is, what you can expect from it, and how many titans there are in it (lots). What is it? Well it's a bit like Clash Royale. But it's also a bit like a tower defence game. But it's also a bit like a tower offence game. It's a base versus base scrap to the death with units a…

The week has come to an end. We are all ready to strip off our work skin, slide into our party skins, and rub against each other in a variety of different positions to try and forget that Monday is coming. That Monday is always coming. But before that happens, let's have a look at the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. After all, we can't end the week without hurling even more excellent content into the void of the internet and hoping it sticks somewhere.

The Thursday Find - A Snake's Tale

It's Thursday, so let's have a think about the sort of thing we'd like to find today. I think I'd like to find an excellent iOS game, and then share it with all of you lovely people. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. But which one to choose? Oh, how about an interesting twist on a template you might have seen before? Yeah sure, let's go for that one. But which one is it? Well you're going to find out soon enough. As ever you can click the emboldened name of the game below to download it. That covers everything I think, so let's get on with this.

It's Wednesday. It's come around quicker than usual because Monday was a bank holiday. At least it was in the UK. I don't know where you're from, so I'd feel bad if I said it was a bank holiday where you're from and it wasn't. Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. So that's what I'm going to do. Even though it feels much more like a Tuesday and so I'm very confused. As ever, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to go and download them. And there you have it, an excellent preamble to an excellent piece of content. We're all doing brilliant work, Gamebook Adventures 9 - 99p / 99c So right now…

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.

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.

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?

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.
