Is Dreamworks Universe of Legends suitable for younger mobile gamers?

Is Dreamworks Universe of Legends suitable for younger mobile gamers?

Have you ever wondered what a team-up between Po from Kung-fu Panda, a dragon from How to Train Your Dragon, and another character from a third Dreamworks property might look like? No? Me neither, but some people probably have, and they're who I'm writing this content for. That's because Dreamworks: Universe of Legends came out last week. It's a free to play casual RPG featuring heroes from a whole bunch of Dreamworks animation properties. And it's quite a lot of fun, if you're into that sort of thing. But there are a few nooks and crannies that people who are unfamiliar with the genre might have trouble with, especially if they're younger players. And since that's pretty much who the game…

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Squashy Bug for iPhone and iPad

Squashy Bug, as you might be able to tell from the title, is a game about a Squashy Bug. You're not trying to squash the squashy bug though, you're trying to stop it from getting squashed. All the while attempting to increase your high score. It's a pretty simple thing, but there are a few tips and tricks that we've collated during our time with the game that are sure to push you even higher up the leaderboards.

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.

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…

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

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 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?
