Is David Cage's Fahrenheit coming to iOS and Android?

Is David Cage's Fahrenheit coming to iOS and Android?

Those old enough to have been a gamer during the PS2 and Xbox era may well remember David Cage's bizarre action-adventure game, Fahrenheit. Released back in 2005 by Quantic Dream, a recent Amazon listing has suggested that Fahrenheit might be coming to mobile this year. I'll leave it up to AppSpy's video wizard James to give you a lot more information in the video below.…


The 8 best Western RPGs for people who don't like Western RPGs

The 8 best Western RPGs for people who don't like Western RPGs

For as long as I can remember, my favourite genre has been the RPG. At best you get a rich novel-length plot full of interesting characters, an action or tactical combat system, and a gorgeous fantasy world to explore at your leisure. The best part - you get to create a custom version of yourself and live out a full fantasy life within a videogame. Isn't that what games are for? It turns out that a few people don't actually like RPGs. Though puzzled at first, I eventually came to the conclusion that these sorts have three main RPG turn-offs: the length, complicated statistical systems, and a too much to see and do mentality. With these key reasons in mind I browsed the App Store RPG offer…


Exiles is Crescent Moon Games' mobile answer to Red Faction and is out this week on iOS

Exiles is Crescent Moon Games' mobile answer to Red Faction and is out this week on iOS

Formerly an Android exclusive, Exiles is making the iOS plunge this week - Thursday 29th to be precise. As our headline suggests, Exiles is essentially a mobile Red Faction with heavy RPG elements. It's been developed by Crescent Moon Games, responsible for Ravensword: Shadowlands and Aralon Sword and Shadow, so you could say that that team is well versed in bringing RPGs to mobile. Check out the trailer below for a look at Exiles in all its, quite frankly gorgeous, sci-fi action glory.…


The 12 best PlayStation alternatives on iOS - or 'why Drake, Jak, and Kratos can jog on'

The 12 best PlayStation alternatives on iOS - or 'why Drake, Jak, and Kratos can jog on'

A few weeks ago we ran a feature where I scoured the dark and dusty corners of the App Store to look for games that invoked the spirits of our favourite Nintendo franchises of yore. Sometimes they were shameless rip-offs, but the important thing is that they were good shameless rip-offs. Sony's PlayStation has a fair few decent exclusive franchises of its own too, so again I've braved the depths of the App Store to find you the 12 best PlayStation alternatives for your iPhone or iPad. Enjoy! 1. Crash Bandicoot = Shrek Forever After - Number one on our list goes to possibly the most popular PlayStation character of all time, Crash Bandicoot. Like Super Mario B…


Moneygrabber is a one-tap iOS game about consumerism at its finest

Moneygrabber is a one-tap iOS game about consumerism at its finest

When you first see the trailer for Moneygrabber, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's merely a simulation of 21st century living. We're all trying to make as much money as possible and then show off said earnings with lots of shiny stuff. On a less cynical note, as a game Moneygrabber looks set to be another seriously addictive one-tap success. You tap to reach out and collect money as it descends down the screen, occasionally doing the same for power-ups. Once you've collected enough money, you can buy status symbols like watches, sunglasses, or even a car. They're all named after their real life counterparts but with the sillyness meter turned up to eleven - everyone wants a…


FastFishing favours speed over relaxation, is available for free on iOS from January 22nd

FastFishing favours speed over relaxation, is available for free on iOS from January 22nd

Fishing is relaxing, I hear. You cast your rod into picturesque waters, open a can of lager, and fall asleep until you feel a light tugging on the line. That's how fishing works, right? Though it may be rather therapeutic in real life, that doesn't sound particularly interesting for a game. That's probably what lead to Strange Flavour's decision to call its brand new iOS fishing game FastFishing. It plays almost exactly like regular fishing except it's much faster and each level is timed. There are 22 levels to cast your reel into and six different areas, ranging from stormy ocean waters to sunny idyllic islands. You can also unlock a variety of new equipment that can be used…


The Humble Mobile Bundle 10 has landed and offers six great Android games at one low price

The Humble Mobile Bundle 10 has landed and offers six great Android games at one low price

The Humble Mobile Bundle offers one of those rare situations where owning an Android phone has a very clear benefit over an iPhone: game bundles. Well, that and the fact you get Android Lollipop. God, I love Lollipop. As for the games, the bundle currently offers a decent selection: Buddy & Me, LYNE, and Doodle Kingdom are available for however much you feel like paying. However, if you beat the average donations you unlock three further games: Sorcery! 2, King of Dragon Pass, and OTTTD - bargain! The average currently sits at $3.92 but will no doubt climb as more games get added. Oh, did we not mention that more games get added later? Well, they…


Gameloft has announced the next chapter in the hit action-RPG franchise Dungeon Hunter

Gameloft has announced the next chapter in the hit action-RPG franchise Dungeon Hunter

It was inevitable. As sure as Modern Combat 6 is in development somewhere, a new Dungeon Hunter was surely around the corner - and it is. Dungeon Hunter 5 follows hot on the footsteps of 2013's Dungeon Hunter 4 but with some small improvements that have obviously been pinched from other franchises. Remember the largely disappointing The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot? That was Ubisoft's attempt at making a free-to-play action-RPG and it actually had a decent concept. You could build your own dungeon or stronghold and fill it with traps and minions, much like in Dungeon Keeper, and then raid fellow player's dungeon, stealing their treasure if yo…

A new Motorsport Manager update is racing onto the App Store later this week

Last year's surprise racing management simulation hit, Motorsport Manager, is getting the update treatment later this week. What you'll be getting is a new racing series, the 'World Speed Series', which is aimed at those crazy few who didn't find the base game challenging enough. There are also new challenges with a variety of limitations that require you to change up your playstyle in order to complete them. Finally, the game will be localised for French, German, Spanish, and Italian languages. Meanwhile, here's AppSpy's very own Peter playing Motorsport Manager. If you like what you see, head on over to the App Store via the link below. [App Store link]…


Spellcrafter: The Path of Magic is an original turn-based RPG by Jujubee Games and it's headed to mobile this year

Spellcrafter: The Path of Magic is an original turn-based RPG by Jujubee Games and it's headed to mobile this year

 As far as I'm concerned the App Store can't get enough RPGs, especially brand new ones. Well, that's exactly what we're getting with Spellcrafter: The Path of Magic. As is the trend these days, it seems, Spellcrafter will be told episodically, with the first episode expected to arrive by the end of the first quarter 2015. Each episode will feature a brand new protagonist, though whether that means the entire cast of characters changes is a mystery. The combat will be entirely turn-based in a similar vein to King's Bounty. Actually, it's all pretty similar to King's Bounty. Why not watch the trailer below to judge for yourselves. I, for one, can't wait f…


Sons of Anarchy is the next TV show to be given the adaptation treatment in Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect

Sons of Anarchy is the next TV show to be given the adaptation treatment in Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect

A "rough cut" trailer of the new Sons of Anarchy mobile game has surfaced on the interwebs and features a dangerous ride down the wrong side of the road, a hand-to-hand fight with a gun involved and, continuing the dangerous theme, the protagonist lighting up a cigarette. The most interesting thing we gleamed from this trailer is that Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect appears to be entirely in first person. The visuals and storytelling also look fairly reminiscent of the Telltale games, which isn't surprising given their success at transferring popular film and TV onto the small screen. There's very little information out there at present but we do know that the story is entirel…


The Super Bowl will muscle its way on to NFL Quarterback 15 and NFL Kicker 15 this Thursday 15th January

The Super Bowl will muscle its way on to NFL Quarterback 15 and NFL Kicker 15 this Thursday 15th January

Before you get too excited, no, they're not hosting the Super Bowl inside of a video game this year - though that would be awesome. Instead we're getting a Super Bowl-themed update to two of the greatest NFL games to hit iOS and Android, NFL Quarterback 15 and NFL Kicker 15. The update will hit the App Store and Google Play on Thursday 15th January - a Godsend for those impatiently waiting for February 1st and the Super Bowl proper. It adds the venue for this year's Super Bowl, University of Phoenix Stadium, to both games as well as updating both of their UIs to give them more of a Super Bowl theme. Both trailers for the updates are included below so check them out…


Race around the world on your very own customisable yak in Mutant Lab's latest game Yak Dash

Race around the world on your very own customisable yak in Mutant Lab's latest game Yak Dash

I learned something new today that brought me instant joy: yak racing is a thing. It's particularly popular in Tibet but it also happens in Mongolia and Northern Pakistan, apparently. You won't have to travel quite so far to try it for yourself, thankfully, as Mutant Labs latest mobile game is based on the sport. You and your yak will traverse the globe competing against fellow yak racers all while collecting apples to maintain the yak's energy levels and coins to purchase cosmetic items. It's all kind of reminiscent of Ski Safari. Yak racing seems kind of silly to me and Mutant Labs have totally embraced that sillyness in all aspects of the game. The visuals look like they're pulled strai…


Plarium has launched the mobile successor to Facebook MMO Stormfall Age of War

Plarium has launched the mobile successor to Facebook MMO Stormfall Age of War

Plarium has dragged its popular Facebook-MMO Stormfall: Age of War right on to mobile and given it a brand new title, Stormfall: Rise of Balur. The new game in the medieval RTS franchise hasn't simply been cobbled together and chucked onto mobile, though. There's a whole new and optimised user interface designed for playing in portrait, streamlined action menus, and, most importantly, new game mechanics and buildings. The visuals have also been given something of a boost, which is good to hear considering that the first title appeared back in 2012. That means a brighter displayer and much more activity happening on the screen than before. Stormfall: Rise of Balur …

Check out this video tutorial to help prepare yourself for intense combat in The Witcher Battle Arena

CD Projekt Red is currently preparing for the global launch of its first ever mobile title, The Witcher Battle Arena. It's a MOBA built from the ground up with mobile in mind, which means shorter battles, smaller teams, and the same rich and detailed visuals that the series is well-known for. There will be eight playable characters from The Witcher universe to choose from when the game launches and two different arenas to sling spells and swing axes in but you can safely expect more of both to follow shortly after launch. The Witcher Battle Arena has already soft launched in Sweden and Canada, which means we're getting very close to a global launch. If you're a fan of&n…
