The AppSpy end of year awards: The 3 best games for iPhone and iPad of July 2017

By , on December 28, 2017

We're over half way through our round-up of the best games that came out in 2017. It's July now, you were probably wearing sunglasses in July. I wore sunglasses for the entirety of July. It made doing my work very difficult.

You can find the rest of the months we've covered below. Tomorrow it'll be August. It's my birthday in August. I very much doubt that that's going to make it onto the list, but who knows? Stranger things have happened.

Layton's Mystery Journey

Subscribe to AppSpy on

Yeah, it might be pretty expensive, but this is a fully fledged Professor Layton adventure on mobile. Not only is it full of amazing characters, it's got some really interesting puzzles in the mix as well. There's a good chance that this is the finest game of Nintendo heritage on the App Store. True fact.

Galaxy of Pen and Paper

Subscribe to AppSpy on

An RPG within an RPG. You're controlling a group of friends who are controlling a party in a space-set table top adventure. It's a lot of fun, even if you're not into the cool meta references that run through everything. Plus it's in space. Everyone loves space.

Motorsport Manager 2

Subscribe to AppSpy on

A sequel that builds on everything that the first game created. It's accessible and deep, in the best ways that those two words can be. There's always something to tinker with, someone new to hire, and plenty of thinking to do as well. And you get to run your own motorsport team, which none of us is ever going to get to do in real life.
