The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - December 22nd

It's the last week of the App Store being open in 2017. Some games have come out. Some of them are quite good. Some of them aren't very good though. So we've gone right ahead and picked the five best so you're not throwing money at something that's going to leave you cold and disappointed. Like a bad coat. You can click on the names of the games below to download them from the App Store.

Here's everything you need to know about Bridge Constructor Portal

Oh look, it's Thursday. In fact, it's the last Thursday of 2017. That means that this is going to be the last Thursday Find of the year. And it's a pretty good find. I mean, they're all pretty good finds. That is literally the point of this article, so it'd be pretty rubbish if it was pretty rubbish. Anyway, cheers for checking out all of our recommendations, we hope we've helped you find some really great games, and we hope we can keep doing that in 2018. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you've got your own suggestion, why not break with the habit of 2017 and chuck it in the comments at the bottom of the article. Br…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - December 20th

We're getting towards the end of the year, and that means that there are a whole bunch of games on sale right now for iPhone and iPad. And you know what? Some of them are really, really good. In fact, there might be too many to choose from. But don't worry about that, because we've gone right ahead and picked the five that you should be splashing your cash on. After all, you've probably spent a good deal of money this month on wonderful presents for me. I mean for your family. You can click on the names of the games below to grab them from the App Store.

How did a Cuphead knock off make it on to the App Store?

How did a Cuphead knock off make it on to the App Store?

It's been a while since we've seen a flagrant rip off landing on the App Store. But yesterday we all got a bit excited because we thought that Cuphead, a gorgeous looking 2D shooter that has been wowing players on Xbox and Steam, had come out on iOS. That wasn't the case though. It was an elaborate scam. The app was £4.99, and at first glance it looked legit. The developer was right, there was a website, and the screenshots certainly suggested that Cuphead had miraculously made its way to the App Store. The game wasn't up for long though. The developers made it known it was by no-means an official port, and before the day was up it had been deleted from listings. If you spent any mon…

The best gifts for iPhone and iPad gamers this Christmas

It's the Monday before Christmas, which means you've still got a bit of time to go out and get the mobile gamer in your life some presents. Or order them off the internet. I don't know, there aren't any mobile gamers in my life to be honest. Anyway, we thought it was as good a time as any to put together a guide to let you know some of the cool stuff out there that a mobile gamer might just appreciate. I mean, they might not, but don't hold it against us. There's a chance they're just the sort of person who doesn't appreciate getting gifts. You can click on the names of the items below to get them from Amazon. Apart from the iTunes gift card, which you can't buy from Amazon. If you've got…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - December 15th

Oh what a week it has been. Games have been flying at us left right and centre. Some of them have been ace, some of them have been real good, and some of them have been amazing. It has been what we here at AppSpy like to call a bit of a crazy one. So cutting everything down to just five games has been a bit of a chore. We got there in the end though. You can click on the names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And feel free to chuck your own suggestions into the comments at the bottom of the article. I'm pretty sure you're going to have some. Life is Strange One of the best adventure games of the past couple of years finally makes it to mobile. It's not what you mi…

Here's everything you need to know about Fez Pocket Edition for iPhone and iPad

It's the fourth day of the working week. Or if you're freelance, it's the nth day of infinity. Seriously I'm not even sure it is Thursday. I just had to double check and I'm not 100% that someone isn't trying to fool me into thinking it's a day that it isn't. Anyway, whatever day it is, we're going to have a look at the game that came out on the App Store this week that you definitely should be playing it. It's the Thursday Find, it's just not called that any more for a lot of very boring reasons that, quite frankly, have nothing to do with you. This week we really are spoiled for choice on the App Store though. It's one of those weeks where devs clearly didn't have a call round to see if…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - December 13th

It's that time of the week again. The time of the week when I take some time out of my busy schedule of napping to write some content about the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. You can click on the names of the games below to download them from the App Store. Oh, and since I like you I've actually added 6 games to the list. That's the sort of care and attention you can expect from AppSpy. You're welcome. Assassin's Creed Identity - 99p / 99c It might be a little on the wonky side, but this is actually one of the best AC games to come out in recent years. It's pared back, but that gets rid of a lot of the fluff that we've seen in the console iterations of the game.…

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is coming to iOS, so here are some other Harry Potter games we'd like to see

Well then, another Harry Potter game has been announced for mobile. It's called Harry Potter: A Hogwart's Mystery, and it's set to land on iOS and Android next year some time. The game's an RPG, and it sees you spending 7 years in the iconic castle. Alongside Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite, that means we're probably going to see at least two HP-themed games landing on the App Store next year. Obviously that got my brain cogs whirring - what else in the wizarding world could be turned into a mobile game? And you know what my brain cogs are like - once they're in gear there's nothing that can stop them except the creation of excellent content. So that's what you're going to get here. A list of…

Here are the 5 best Nitrome games for iPhone and iPad

Nitrome is one of those developers that understands mobile brilliantly. Its games are often unique twists on some age-old formula, and more often that not those twists breathe extravagant and interesting new life into a genre. And since we haven't done one of those round up lists for a while, I figured it was high time we decided what the five best Nitrome games are. To be honest, this list could just be a link to Nitrome's App Store page, but that's lazy content and I simply won't stand for it here. You can click on the names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you think I've got it wrong, or just want to talk about your favourite Nitrome game, then feel free to get…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - December 8th

Friday has rolled around, which means that it's time to round up the best games that came out this week on the App Store. Because, after all, that's the sort of thing that we like to do on Friday. That and drinking mimosas on the beach. Mmmmmm beach. It's been a pretty good week on the App Store all told, as weeks in December usually are. Devs are rushing to get their games out before everyone gets a new iPhone for Christmas or something, I guess. I dunno, I'm not a dev. That's why I'm writing this. As usual you can click on the names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've seen anything you think should be included on the list, make sure you chuck them in the com…

It's Thursday again. I hope you're all well rested and invigorated for the mad dash to the weekend. You've probably got Christmas shopping to do on Saturday.

Well it's Wednesday again. I'm really not sure how that's happened to be honest, but there you go. You can't stop the wheel of time from crushing you under its tread no matter how hard you try. There's a comforting thought for you. Anyway, Wednesday is when we like to round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. I'm going to be honest with you though, there's not a great deal going for cheap at the moment. If none of these games take your fancy, I'd suggest saving your money.
