Hints, tips, and tricks for No Brakes io

Hints, tips, and tricks for No Brakes io

No Brakes io is a mix between all those .io games you've played and Amiga classic Skidmarks. In other words, it's a pretty twitchy racer that involves swooping your way around a series of different tracks. The big twist is that it's a multiplayer game, and the rewards you get at the end of the race are based on how high up the rankings you finished. Or if you finished at all. It might seem like a pretty simple proposition, but there's actually quite a lot going on here. So I figured it'd be a good idea to bash together a guide to make sure you're getting the most out of the experience. And always crossing that finish line first. Don't crash The key to the game is not crashing. Yes there…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - October 6th

Friday is happening. Friday is happening all around us. There's nothing anyone can do about it, so let's just roll with the punches and see what happens. This crazy rollercoaster ride is going to have to come to an end at some point, whether we want it to or not. If you'd like some entertainment while the carriages shoot up and down though, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out this week on the App Store. Quite frankly it's a bit of an odd week, but bear with me because I think there's some decent games to be found if you're willing to persevere. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got y…

The Thursday Find - REKT

Well hello there. It's nice to see you. Been a while. Been up to anything nice? You didn't!?! Really? That is certainly a turn up for the books. Although you should probably go to the doctor and get that checked out. Y'know, just in case. Anyway, you might have noticed that it's Thursday. And that means it's time to do a Thursday Find. That's when we pick the one game that's come out this week that you definitely, definitely should be playing. And quite frankly this week the choice was pretty damn simple. 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 experiences with the game you want to share, or you just want to tell…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - October 4th

Another Wednesday is here. I hope you're all having an excellent week so far. There's a lot going on in the world though isn't there? Wouldn't it be nice if you could get some mobile videogame bargains to distract you from all of the horror. And if someone made a list of all the best ones going cheap on the App Store right now? Oh, wait, that's what we do on Wednesdays around these parts. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? I know I certainly do. And there are some classic games going for a song this week. Chirpy chirpy cheap cheap they're going. What an absolutely nonsense thing to type out. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head to the Ap…

The Tuesday Best of - Stunt racing games

It's October 3rd. There seem to be a lot of people posting a picture to that effect around the internet, so I figured I'd jump in on the action like the content legend that I am. It's also Tuesday, and we all know what that means around these parts. That's right, it means it's time for another instalment of the Tuesday best-of, everyone's favourite post where I round up the best games in a specific mobile genre. And today is going to be no different. Today we're going to look at the best stunt car games on iOS. It's mainly to celebrate the fact that REKT came out this week, and I really really like REKT. As you'll be able to tell if you read the next paragraph. Anyway, click the emboldened…

The Monday Musing - Why Donald Trump should play First Strike

The Monday Musing - Why Donald Trump should play First Strike

Ah Monday, the jewel in the crown of our human suffering. All days are not born equal, and Monday is definitely born worse. I'm sorry Monday, it's not your fault, you just ended up in the worst possible place. To try and alleviate some of the malaise, Monday is when we here at AppSpy like to have a muse about things. It might not be funny, it might not be right, and it might sound a lot like a stream of consciousness, but that's all you can really expect from us on this most miserable of days. And since nuclear war is on everyone's minds at the moment, I thought I'd take the opportunity to muse about a game that made nuclear annihilation fun, but also absolutely terrifying. You can click o…

But it's fine, because I always know what the content is going to be because I plan ahead and I am dead smart.

The Tuesday Best of - AR games for iOS 11

It looks like it's Tuesday already. So that's something, I guess. And as you all know, Tuesday is when we round up three of the best games in a specific genre on the App Store. I think you can probably guess what I'm going to be rounding up today. Yup, that's right, it's AR games. A whole bunch came out on the App Store in the wake of iOS 11, so I figured it made sense to tell you which of them you should download. Because, to all intents and purposes, that is my job. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them.

The Monday Musing - What AR gaming needs to do to succeed

Well, last week was all about the AR wasn't it? AR this and AR that and the new iPhone is expensive but it does AR things so that's cool. Is AR the future of gaming? I don't know. I'll be honest, I'm not really sure it's the present of gaming yet. So in this week's Monday Musing I'm going to have a muse about what AR games need to do in order to to become an important force in mobile gaming. I've got some hints, I've got some tips, and I've got a whole shed full of mad ideas. If you've got any ideas that you think might help, feel free to chuck them into the comments section at the bottom of the article. I'm pretty sure that, together, we can make AR gaming incredible.

Friday has come around again, bringing with it the chiming doom of another week. The days are fading, time moves inexorably onwards, entropy will claim us all. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't play some sick mobile games in the meantime. And since so many great ones came out this week, you probably need some sort of round-up to tell you where to spend your hard earned cash monies. Well fret not my wee friends, because that's exactly what I've gone and written for you. You can poke at the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you've got your own suggestions it really would be lovely if you put them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. I'll give you…

Yes, it's Wednesday. It's been Wednesday for quite a while now, depending on where you are. It might not be Wednesday in some places. How does time even work? I have no idea. Go ask a grown up, we're here to talk about games. And on Wednesday (which is the day that today is), we talk about games that are on sale. Five of them. The best five that are currently going for cheap on the App Store. So that's exactly what we're going to do right now.

The Tuesday best of - Games like Deus Ex GO

Sometimes here at AppSpy we like to be controversial. I know, I know, I'm surprised too. I thought we just said the nice things that the nice people wanted to hear. But no, we like to stick our oar in, wiggle it around, and see how long this metaphor can be stretched out for. Anyway, in our regular piece of Tuesday content this week, I've decided to throw up the three best GO games that aren't actually GO games. So they're like, GO-style games. Or something like that. Basically puzzle games that dress themselves up like third person adventures. And are good. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got your own sug…
