The Last Jedi is coming soon, so here are the best Star Wars games for iPhone

Star Wars fever is already gripping the world, as you might expect with the eighth film very much on the horizon. But just because the film is coming out on the big screen, that doesn't mean you can't push your face into some small screen action in the meantime. So I figured a round up of the best Star Wars games on the App Store was in order. After all, you gotta chase that sweet, sweet SEO whenever you can. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it anyway. You can download the games by clicking on their names below. And if you think there's something that should be included that we've forgotten about, feel free to wham your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the page. And may…

It's not all Clash Royale. These are the iPhone and iPad games that we think would make amazing eSports

Everyone knows that eSports are the big thing right now in mobile gaming. If you don't believe me, check out our sister site Pocket Gamer's coverage of the recent Clash Royale grand finals. It's pretty exciting stuff, y'know, if you're interested in that sort of thing. So far the main thrust of the mobile eSports genre has focused mainly on games like Clash Royale, MOBAs to give them another name. But there's money in RTS games and shooters on other devices, and that got me thinking. What games out there on mobile right now are likely to transfer well to the eSports arena. Basically this is a primer to make sure you're playing the games that are going to end up making you the big bucks in…

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

It's the end of the week. That's nice isn't it? Unless you have to work at the weekend. Then I feel sorry for you. I'm sure you'll make it through though, I believe in you, and your overwhelming power to succeed whatever the odds. As it's Friday we're going to round up the best games of the week.

Everything you need to know about GNOG for iPhone and iPad

Thursday is here. It's snowing outside. I mean, it might not be snowing where you are, but I can hardly be expected to come round to all of your houses and check outside to see if it's snowing can I? Come on, show some initiative and find out for yourself. While you're doing that I'm going to do the usual Thursday thing of writing about the one game that's come out this week that you definitely should play. We've already discussed GRID Autosport, so it's not going to be that. Because that would be too easy. Instead I'm going to talk about a game that lets you poke around in the brains of a bunch of robots. You can click the name of that game below to download it from the App Store. And if…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - November 29th

Wednesday always seems to sneak up on you doesn't it? Feels like only yesterday it was the weekend and we were all finding new and exciting ways to express how tired we all are. Time. It's a funny thing. Anyway, Wednesday is when we round up all the best games that are currently on sale for iPhone and iPad. It's a bit of a slow week, as you might expect after the excesses of Black Friday last week. But there's still some decent games to nab for cheap. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to hop over to the App Store and grab them. Oh, and if you've spotted anything you think should be included, feel free to toss it in the comments for the whole world to see. Go…

Mobile gaming moments of 2017 - Everwing on a beach in Scotland

Mobile gaming moments of 2017 - Everwing on a beach in Scotland

The end of the year is fast coming up, which means soon it's going to be time to start creating content about the best games that have come out in the 12 months it's taken the earth to perform one complete rotation around the fiery, living giving sun. Obviously that's going to happen on AppSpy, but I also want to try and do something a little different. I don't want you to think about the best game you've played this year, or the game that you think is the most technically polished. I want you to think about the game that, for one reason or another, has meant the most to you. It could be because you sunk hours into it over the year. It could be because it got you through some hard times. H…

Here's why GRID Autosport for iOS is the racer that petrol heads have been waiting for

Here's why GRID Autosport for iOS is the racer that petrol heads have been waiting for

Well, this snuck up on us a little bit. Grid Motorsport is out right now on the App Store. It's a racing game, it's premium, and it's probably the game that hardcore racers have been waiting to land on iOS for a good long while. Why is that? Well, because it's got everything you'd want from a mobile racer, and it's all presented in a package that could well make your eyes bleed. But, like, in a good way. I'm sure there are sometimes ways that eye-bleeding is good. Anyway, I've written some words on the very subject. If you've got past these three paragraphs, I urge you to keep going. Things can only really get better. At least I hope they're going to, otherwise we're all in trouble. Oh, an…

Anyway, the point still stands - but now you can read this article in a prescient new light. --- Well it's Thursday, and usually I like to write some content on Thursday. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. In fact, I'm doing it right now. Do you see? This is the content that I am creating for you. Consider yourselves blessed. Blessed by this wondrous content. If you have even the slightest interest in videogames then you've probably heard people mentioning PUBG. In layman's terms that's P…

Why Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp might be the perfect game to get you through this holiday season

Why Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp might be the perfect game to get you through this holiday season

It's getting towards the end of the year, and that can only mean one thing - we're about to be engulfed by a series of holidays. Oh, and it might snow in the northern hemisphere as well. Probably not though, what with global warming and all. Anyway, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has just landed on the App Store. Sure, it might be a bit early, and someone has forgotten to turn the servers on, but that got me thinking. Is Animal Crossing the perfect mobile game to tide you through the dark winter nights and awful meetings with aunts and uncles you barely even remember? There's really only one thing for it. I'm going to have to create a piece of content to address that very question. You can c…

The 5 games you need to play on your Black Friday iPhone and iPad purchases

Well, it's that week again. Black Friday is almost upon us, and that can only mean one thing - deals, deals, deals. But this isn't DealSpy, that's a completely different website. This is AppSpy, so I thought we'd start off the week by looking at the games you should be grabbing on the swanky new iPhone you're going to try and get cheap over the next few days. We're specifically looking at games that are really going to shine on your new phone or tablet. The sort of thing you're going to whip out to show your mum to justify the price you just spent on, what is essentially, a few bits of glass, plastic, and metal. You can click on the emboldened names of the games to download them from the A…
