The Thursday Find - Miracle Merchant

The Thursday Find - Miracle Merchant

I mean, yes, if you look at it in a logical way, I did miss Thursday's Thursday Find post. But you know what that means? You're going to get two pieces of excellent AppSpy content today. Aren't you a bunch of lucky sausages? If you've never been here on a Thursday before, or on a Friday posing as a Thursday, the Thursday Find is when I tell you about one game that you definitely should be playing this week. It's all part of the service that we provide here at AppSpy. Anyway, you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And feel free to tell me I'm wrong in the comments at the bottom of the article. I'll almost certainly ignore you, but it might make you feel impor…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - August 2nd

Welp, it's Wednesday. I'm sort of running out of things to say about days of the week now. I'm sorry Wednesday, I feel like I've let you down. It's just that I'm very tired and my face feels really warm for some reason. What a life. One thing I know for sure is that Wednesday is when I round up the best games on sale on the App Store at the moment. And this week there are some real gems that have had their prices slashed. One might even call it a vintage week. Some of the games that didn't make this list would have easily made it into other week's lists. Anyway, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. Except the one that's got two entries.…

The Tuesday best of - Double Fine games for iPhone and iPad

Tuesday has crawled in, probably covered in mud and with a weird look in its eye like it's been up to something terrible, but it's not quite ready to tell you what yet. Maybe next week Tuesday. You keep your secrets for now. Anyway, on Tuesday here at AppSpy we like to round up some of the best games on the App Store. And this week is no different. We're going to take a look at the best Double Fine games for iOS. And you're probably going to get a bit angry. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you disagree with anything on this list, which you probably will, fell free to stick your own suggestions in the comments all the way down there…

The Monday Musing - Three games that should get their own mobile card games

The Monday Musing - Three games that should get their own mobile card games

Monday has come round again. With all the good grace of that drunk friend who calls you at 3am and just sort of makes noises at you. Thanks Monday, it's always great to see you. Same time next week, yeah? At least Monday being here means it's time for some excellent AppSpy content. And Monday is when we smash out our Monday Musing. We just sort of have a sit down and a think about things. Not too deep a think though, I mean, it's still Monday. This week I'm thinking about The Elder Scrolls: Legends. It's a card game based on the super popular Western RPG, and it just came out for iPhone. And that got me wondering about what other massive games should have their own card game on mobile. The…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - July 28th

Welcome, one and all, to Friday. If you've never had a Friday before, here's a brief run-down. It's the last day of the working week, and everyone looks forward to it with the grim determination of prisoners looking forward to the hour they get to spend outside. It also means that here on AppSpy we get to round up the best games that came out this week. So that's pretty exciting. And it's been a mammoth ol' week for games coming out on the App Store. They haven't all been dross either. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to swoop off to the App Store and pick them up. And if you think we've missed anything out, then whack your suggestions in the comments at the…

The Thursday Find - Galaxy of Pen and Paper

Happy Thursday everyone. I hope all of your dreams have come true and you're not squatting in a pit of filth and misery. Because, quite frankly, that sounds completely awful. If you are doing that, then reach out to someone. They might be able to help you. Weird intro. Anyway, Thursday means it's time for the Thursday Find. And we've got a super duper cool find for you this week. It's so found that it's off the finding charts. I don't think that's going to catch on, but I'm going to keep pushing it anyway. As per, click on the emboldened name of the game below and you'll be able to download it from the App Store. And if you've got an opinion on the game, chuck it in the comments all the wa…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - July 26th

Ah Wednesday. The central pillar of the working week. It's like the pole holding the rest of the miserable sheet up. If only we could find a way to knock it down. Together comrades, charge at the pillar that keeps us oppressed. No? Okay, maybe next week then. Wednesday is when we like to look at the best games on sale on the App Store anyway. So it'd be a shame if we dismantled capitalism before I got a chance to tell you what you can save some pennies on at the moment. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to go and grab them from the App Store. And if there's anything you think should be on the list but isn't, why don't you let everyone know about it in the com…

The Tuesday best of - Word games for iPhone and iPad

Tuesday is here. It's Tuesday everyone. Okay, real talk, does anyone know what Tuesday is actually for? Has anything important ever happened on a Tuesday? Look back through your history books, and I bet you'll find that literally zero things have occurred on a Tuesday. Anyway, here at AppSpy on Tuesdays, we like to buck the trend by trying to do something interesting. It usually involves rounding up three of the best games in a genre. And that's what we're doing today. And we're having a good long look at word games. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to swoop over to the App Store and download them. And if you think there should be other games in the list, w…

The Monday Musing - Three genres that need the mobile deconstruction treatment

The Monday Musing - Three genres that need the mobile deconstruction treatment

Oh my word it's Monday already. Dark and dreary Monday, cowering in a corner and scowling at anyone that dares to ask it how it's doing. A forgotten thing, lonely at all times, scorned simply for existing when it does. Poor Monday. But Monday also means it's time for a Monday musing. And this time around I thought we'd have a look at genres that could do with a sensible mobile deconstruction. We've seen it a lot recently, with games like Clash Royale and Wagers of War – titles that are taking the core ideas of a genre and then squishing them into mobile-sized packages. With that in mind, here are three other genres that I think are ripe for the squishing process. You might agree, you…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - July 21st

Hi there Friday. You look lovely, strutting around in your finery like the cock of the walk. You know we love you best of all the days in the week, and you're not afraid to milk that affection for all that its worth. I can respect that. And since it's Friday, that means it's time to round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. It's been a pretty decent week all told, especially when you compare it to last week. Let's never talk about last week ever again. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you think I've missed anything, which I probably have, chuck your suggestions in the comments at the b…

The Thursday Find - Brainful

Feature By Harry Slater, 4 months ago

Hi there, and welcome to another edition of Harry starts the first paragraph of a feature with something weird about the day. It's Thursday today, and I think we can all agree that that is a fact, and just move on with our lives without putting any more consideration into it. And since it's Thursday, it's time for my favourite AppSpy feature, the Thursday Find. Today we're going to be looking at a game that mixes puzzling and arcade action into a frantic, heady, and often down right enraging mix. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to swoop over to the App Store and download it right this second. And feel free to share your ideas in the comments below, if that's…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - July 19th

The days they keep on rolling by, slick with the sun-beaten sweat of commerce and capitalism. But it's fine, because I've put some pictures up in my windows to block out the shiny yellow git that keeps making my days so unpleasant. Anyway, Wednesday is when we take a look at the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. There's some pretty sweet digital entertainment going for cheap at the moment, and I've only gone and rounded up the best of them. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to swoop off to the App Store and grab them. And if there's anything you think should have made it on to the list, toss it into the comments down there at the bottom…

The Tuesday Best of - Sci-fi turn based strategy games for iPhone and iPad

Oh hi there Tuesday, where have you come sneaking in from? Over there? It took you seven days to get here? That sounds like it was a lot of work. You have to do the same thing for next week too? Wow, I never realised that days had it so difficult. I promise to think more about you next time I see you. Anyway, today we're going to look at three of the finest turn-based science fiction strategy games that you can get on the App Store. I'm not entirely sure why that's what we're looking at today, it just is, so deal with it. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think there's a TBSFS that should be on this list but isn't, be sure to chu…

The Monday Musing - The best iPhone games to play outside

Look, it's Monday. The sun's out, the birds are chirping, the bees are looking at the birds lasciviously. It's beautiful and we're all probably stuck doing our jobs so we can pay rent and do boring things like make sure we don't die. But if you're lucky enough to have today off, and don't want to spend your time cooped up, what's a mobile gamer to do? Well, that's the question we're going to try and answer in this here Monday Musing. Yup, this was all heading somewhere. These are mobile games that get you outside in the real world. You can download them by clicking the emboldened links below. And if there's anything you want to recommend then make sure you do just that in the comments at t…

The 3 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - July 14th

Look, let's be honest, it's not been that good a week for mobile games. There are some okay ones, one really great one, and an awful lot of dross. With that in mind, I'm only going to recommend three games to you, because quite frankly you should save your money for when something good comes out. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. Once you've done that, we'll sack the rest of the week off and reconvene on Monday, when hopefully some good games come out and we can put all of this horror behind us.
