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

Well, it's Friday, and thanks to the magic of the internet, while I'm currently wandering around some hills looking at rocks, I'm still able to toss some wonderful content in the direction of your excited little faces. As usual, we're rounding up the five best games that have come out on the App Store this week. It's been a pretty good week all in, although I don't know if I'd call it a classic. Would you call it a classic? I don't know, I can't ready your mind. Anyway, you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to head over to the App Store and download them. And feel free to chuck your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. You know, if that's the sort…

The Thursday Find - Drop Wizard Tower

Oh, hi there Thursday. There you are in all your splendour, showing off your moves, swaggering around like the boss of time. You've done well, we're all super proud of you. Can't wait to see what you bust out next week. I reckon Thursday is so exciting because it's when we throw down our Thursday Find. And this week it's a pretty good one. Well, I mean it's always a pretty good one, because that's sort of the point, after all. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you think there's another game that deserves recognition, please feel free to chuck it in the comments right down there at the bottom of the article. Drop Wizard Tower The sequel…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - July 5th

Welcome to Wednesday my lovelies. Remember, if anyone wishes you a happy hump day today, it's your sworn duty as a member of the AppSpy community to stare them directly in the eye and sigh as loudly and dramatically as you can physically manage. Trust me, it's in the rules. To try and deflect from the agony of having to talk to other people today, I figured it was only fair to do what I usually do on Wednesday. Which means I've gone right ahead and written up a list of the five best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. There are even more gems out there for cheap though, so chuck any suggestions you have in the comments at the bottom of the article. Oh, and you can click on t…

The best games that are like the classic film Independence Day for iPhone and iPad

The best games that are like the classic film Independence Day for iPhone and iPad

It's the 4th of July. Or, as I like to call it, the day Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Paxton, and that crazy drunk guy saved the world from invading aliens. I'm pretty sure that film was a documentary, right? It looked so real. Anyway, because Americans everywhere are celebrating Independence Day, I thought I would too. By writing about some games that are most like my favourite movie, Independence Day. Not the new one though, because that film was horrid and silly. You can click the emboldened name of the games below to download them. Also, I'm sorry if I offended anyone in the first two paragraphs. You might like Independence Day: Resurgence. It takes all sorts to make a world, after a…

The Monday Musing - 3 games in soft launch you should be excited about

It's Monday. Monday is here. Let's all rejoice by getting on with our work diligently. It's what our capitalist overlords want from us, after all. I thought this week we'd take a look at some games in soft launch that you should be excited about. There's three in all, because that just seems like the sort of number that fits these features. There are definitely other soft launched games you should be exciting about, but I can hardly cover everything now can I? The emboldened names of the games won't take you to the App Store this time around, because the games aren't out worldwide. Don't worry though, we'll be sure to let you know when they get a full release. Unless they turn out to be ru…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - June 30th

It's Friday. We've made it. Well done everyone, you should all be very proud of what we've achieved in the last few days. You've earned the hangover you're probably going to have tomorrow. But make sure you're well rested, because we start the whole awful process again on Monday. In the meantime though, if you're looking for some mobile entertainment for the weekend, we've rounded up the five best games that hit the App Store this week. Essentially we've made deciding much much easier for you. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you've spotted another game you think deserves to go on the list, feel free to chuck it in the comments below…

The Thursday Find - Swing King and The Temple of Bling

Wellity wellity well. It's Thursday, the fourth day of the working week. That's pretty exciting isn't it? It'll be Friday tomorrow. And after that we can all go to sleep for two days and hope we never wake up. Or something. On Thursdays here at AppSpy, as well as basking in our own irrelevance, we also like to tell you about a game that we think you should play this week. And, of course, when I say we, I mean me. There's no one else here. As ever you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And have your say about our choice in the comments below. That'll be fun, won't it? I reckon so. Swing King and The Temple of Bling A clever, one-touch arc…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - June 28th

Well, it's Wednesday, it's tipping it down, and the temperature has dipped down to Autumnal levels. To say I'm happy would be an understatement. You can take your sun and throw it into the far depths of space where it will never bother me again. Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. And me oh my, there are a lot of them this week. Whittling them down was pretty tough. But here are the five I've gone for. As ever you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've spotted something ace and cheap that I haven't, feel free to let us know in the comments below. Peac…

The Tuesday Best of - Turn-based strategies designed for iPhone and iPad

There are an awful lot of turn-based strategy games on the App Store, but which are the best? And, more importantly, which are the best that started out life as mobile games. There are a lot of slick ports for your phone and tablet, but I thought we'd focus on games built from the ground up for mobile. So that's what this week's Tuesday best-of is all about. Deep tactical experiences that were always meant to end up in your pocket. And I think I've found three proper gems that should keep fans of the genre super happy. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you've got your own suggestions for our readers to play, feel free to toss them ca…

The Monday Musing - 3 games we'd like to see on Sega Forever

Welp, Sega Forever is a thing now. It's not quite a streaming service, more like a bunch of Sega games that you can get for nowt. Or pay for if you want to avoid seeing adverts all the time. It's a pretty neat idea, and apparently the big S is going to be updating the catalogue regularly with games from its extensive archive. Obviously that's lead me to a Monday Musing. I used to heart Sega with all of my heart, so I figured I'd have a think about three games that I'd love to see coming to Sega Forever sooner rather than later. And that's exactly what I've done. If there are games you'd like to see, feel free to chuck them in the comments down at the bottom of the article. Unless you're go…

Friday is here. Hello Friday. You're looking very nice aren't you? Have you lost weight? That's a lovely jumper you're wearing. I like what you've done with your hair as well. I'm just super glad you're here I guess. I've missed you. You've probably missed Friday too. Because Friday at AppSpy is when we round up the best games that have hit the App Store this week. And it's been a pretty damn good week all round. Many not vintage, but somewhere in the top 12 percentile. I don't know what that means. Anyway you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if there's anything you think other people should be playing this week, toss those recommendations in the c…

The Thursday Find - Touchdowners

Thursday has come crashing in like a wedding-interrupting spurned suitor. Hey the rest of the week, it's probably shouting, don't get married to anyone other than me. Thursday will be ignored, the marriage will go ahead, and he'll feel like a silly sausage for a while. But here at AppSpy we like to spend our Thursdays telling you about a game you should definitely download this week. It's a regular feature, it's called The Thursday Find, and you are literally reading it right now. Pretty exciting, right? This week we've got a lovely gem for you. It's got a bit of everything - helmets, jumping, balls. What more could you want? You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to downlo…

Well Wednesday has really snuck up on us this week hasn't it? Before you know it it'll be Thursday. Then shortly after that it'll be Friday. Then we get two days of laying down before the whole awful carousel of life starts again. Yay. Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store this week. And I'll have you know that there are some proper gems in the offing this time round. Not like last week. Everyone glower at last week.

The Tuesday Best of - Metroidvanias for iPhone and iPad

Forma.8 came out last week. It's a clever twist on the metroidvania formula that sees you floating around gorgeous levels acquiring new skills along the way. It's slick and it's ever so slightly lovely. But it got me thinking about classic metroidvania games you could play on your iPhone. And that in turn set the content alarms screaming in my mind. Plus it's Tuesday, the day when we quite often round up three of the best games in a specific genre. Everything has fallen nicely into place. So here are the three best metroidvania games you can get on the App Store. Click on the emboldened names below to download them.

The Monday Musing - It's too hot, here are some hot games

It's too hot. Honestly, my brain isn't working. I live in a greenhouse. All I can think about is how hot it is. The answer to that is it is very hot. Hot hot hot. There is heat everywhere and I am incapable of escaping it. This may well be why I've gone ahead and written a piece of content about the best hot games on the App Store. Sure, it might not make much sense, but if you expected anything I did in this heat to make sense then you just don't know me at all. Click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you can think of other hot games, then put them in the hot comments so we can have a hot debate. It really is very hot.
