The Monday Musing - The 3 most interesting mobile games on KickStarter right now

The Monday Musing - The 3 most interesting mobile games on KickStarter right now

Do you remember when Kickstarter was heralded as the future of game funding? That didn't really pan out did it? But that doesn't mean that there aren't still some excellent games on the service that are looking for funding. And since it's Monday, I thought I'd have a muse about three of them that look particularly promising. There's a big mix of styles here, and there might be something that you fancy throwing some monies at. I don't mind, that's up to you, it's your money. To break with tradition, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head on over to their KS pages. And if you've got your own suggestions about what people should be crowdfunding, feel free to stick th…

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

It's Friday. I'm going to go climb some mountains later, but in the meantime I suppose I'll create some super hot content for you. That's just the kinda guy I am. Also it's my job, so, I guess that's a reason as well. Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And when I say we, I mean me. There's no one else here. I just like to give off the illusion that I'm working in a high-stakes newsroom, instead of in a corner of my flat surrounded by empty pop bottles. Fun. You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head off to the App Store and download them. And if you've seen anything you think people should be getting, feel…

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

Click the emboldened names to download them. Own suggestions? In the comments please. Done. Deus Ex: The Fall - 99p / 99c Probably one of the best FPS games on the App Store.

The Tuesday best of - Games like Metroid: Samus Returns for iPhone and iPad

The Tuesday best of - Games like Metroid: Samus Returns for iPhone and iPad

There's a new Metroid game out on 3DS. Well, there sort of is. It's a remake of Metroid 2, I think, but with some extra bells and whistles tossed in for fun. Whatever it is, it's called Metroid: Samus Returns, and it's never going to come out for iPhone. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out on all that lovely metroidvania action, because there are plenty of games out there on the App Store that fit into the genre. And a good deal of them play around with the formula in some interesting ways. So since it's Tuesday, I thought I'd tell you about three that you should play. You can poke the emboldened names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've got your own su…

The Monday Musing - Everything you need to know about the new iPhone announcement

It's that time of the year again. A new iPhone is coming out. Or like three new iPhones. Maybe a hundred? I don't know for sure, because Apple hasn't actually announced anything yet. And it likes to play its cards reasonably close to its chest. Still, what's the internet for if not wild speculation? Facts? Hah. I laugh in the face of your facts. Or I would do if there were any. Everything's made up nowadays anyway, or so I'm lead to believe. Plus it's Monday, so it's time for a muse. Here's some stuff we think we know about what Apple is going to be announcing later this week. Some of it might be true, some of it might not be true. Right now it's Schroedinger's true, and we won't know what…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - September 7th

Friday has arrived, and with it the blessed relief of it almost being the weekend. It's pretty exciting isn't it? We've got two days off to drink away all the terrible memories of the week. Or to go out and do things that we enjoy doing with the people that we love. Y'know, if that's the sort of thing that you're into or whatever. As you're probably aware by now, Friday is when we round up all of the good games that have come out this week on the App Store. There are some pretty shiny releases this week, so picking five was actually pretty tough. I did it though, because it's what I do. It is what I do.

Oh look, it's Wednesday. What a time to be alive and for it to be Wednesday. I mean, it was always going to be Wednesday today, because today is the day that it is always Wednesday.

The Tuesday Best of - Games like Destiny 2 for iPhone and iPad

Destiny 2 comes out tomorrow. And if you're anything like me you've been saving up your pennies for a while to get your hands on it. Well, actually, if you're anything like me you've been staring at your bank account for the last week praying to whatever dark lord you worship that your pay is going to go in soon. Anyway, what if you want something to scratch that Destiny 2 itch while you're out and about? What mobile games could you possibly purchase to ensure that you're not just staring off into the middle distance dreaming about Golden Guns and Titans?

The Monday Musing - The iPhone and iPad games every Twin Peaks fan should play

Well Twin Peaks finished last night. Did you watch it? I didn't, I don't really care about anything. I hope you enjoyed it if you did though, and that you're not pining too strongly for a thing now forever lost. Wait a minute though, if you are, maybe I can help? After all, Monday is when we have a muse here at AppSpy, so I guess I could have a muse about the best games to play on your iPhone or iPad if you like Twin Peaks? You know, surreal experiences with unreliable narrators that sway between kooky weird and what on earth is going on weird? I'll just do it, no need to reply. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if yo…

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

It's Friday. That's just a fact. I don't have anything witty to say because, well, sometimes it's hard to think of witty things to say. I realise it's my job and all, but you just don't know the pressure I put on myself to be witty in these first three paragraphs. I think it's eating me alive. It's cool though, I'm going to get a big sandwich tomorrow. Meh. Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. Well, the five best anyway. Some other games might have come out, but I only have the energy to tell you about five of them. If you think some other games should have ended up on this list, why don't you tell us all in the comments below. And if you…

Oh hi there Thursday. How are things going with you? I honestly don't care. I'm really hungry and I sort of need to get all of these words written before I go to the shops. So let's drop all these niceties and get down to the nitty gritty of hot, steaming content. Every Thursday at AppSpy we choose one game that we think you should be playing this week. Just one.

Oh hi there Wednesday. I'm super confused and I'm still pretty sure it's Tuesday. But then, yesterday was Tuesday, and I don't think days can keep going for more than one day.
