Top 5 iOS games with dragons in them

Top 5 iOS games with dragons in them

After many months of waiting and watching, Spyro the Dragon is finally out with its lovely remaster and I, for one, am very excited. So excited, that I'm feeling like we should celebrate our purple friend by checking out how dragons are celebrated on mobile. Why? Well, why not? From riding them into battle, having them destroy cities, grow into even grander beasts, or even just becoming the crazy cat lady of dragons, you'll be feeling the heat with these titles. Sadly, Spyro isn't available on iOS, but you'll definitely scratch that reptilian itch at the very least. Hungry Dragon – download on iOS If you've played Ubisoft's Hungry Shark before you'll be familiar with the controls an…

Here we are at the end of another week and it's been a pretty busy one overall. Though things haven't been crazy here on AppSpy, over on Pocket Gamer there's been a bucket-load of reviews to get through and, of course, a few videos by James on the official YouTube channel. Where we saw the likes of PAKO Forever, SHUMP, and Old School RuneScape last week, this time around it's more about boats, triggers, and muscly, moustachioed men, and we love it. I've also been a bit cheeky and slipped in one of our other weekly projects and, in my defence, James DOES run it so it's basically related. Maybe the inappropriate auntie or third-removed cousin of the family? I'm just talking to myself now. Bl…

The top 5 digital pet games for iOS

If you've ever wanted to take care of a pet without the mess or fuss, digital creatures might be the ideal things for you. You can walk them, pet them, feed them, and clean them, all without leaving the house. How marvellous! Even if you own a dog or cat or rabbit or bird, these five games might still make you go 'aww' when playing them. Personally, I spam Instagram and Twitter enough with pictures of my cat, so I try to steer away from anything else adorable when I can. It's hardly ever successful though, I'll admit. Axolochi – download on iOS If you fancy a digital pet that's a bit different, you might do well with an adorable axolotl. These cute underwater creatures come in a var…

Alright, I'm pretty sure you heard about BlizzCon's – er – rocky announcement of Diablo Immortal at the weekend and by now you probably know that a good chunk of the community hasn't taken it all that well.

I think I speak for everyone when I let out a massive "ahhhhhh" and get ready to kick my feet up as the weekend peers in. But, we can't get too comfortable just yet, oh no. Before the alarm gets shut off and the pyjamas stay on, we should have a quick look at what's been happening with video this week. By now you should know that AppSpy's video channel has changed to Pocket Gamer's official YouTube channel. Don't worry, it's only the name that's changed if it's totally new to you, and it's the same fantastic content. Since James was on holiday until a few days ago, there isn't a tons of stuff to get through. Saying that, as always it's high quality and interesting stuff. Old School RuneSc…

The top 5 free to play mobile RPGs for iOS

Though it's always worth keeping an open mind when it comes to premium mobile games and paying for content, sometimes you don't have to spend an arm and leg to play something truly amazing. If you get a game that manages to smash style and substance successfully, you're in for a treat. Yes, these five RPGs are free to play, but they stand out because of their quality and general content. That's enough of my rambling though. If you're looking for a decent RPG to play this instant, but don't have the cash to spare you'll get on nicely with these. Eternium – download on iOS Made by a team of passionate RPG fans, this action indie game has a feel of Diablo and Torchlight and sports some…

5 excellent cowboy games for iOS

Yeehaw! I don't know about you, but the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is still fresh as a daisy in my mind and I explored a fair few miles of mountains and wild country at the weekend (digitally). Who doesn't love drinking, gambling, and riding around in the blistering heat on horseback, eh? It got me thinking though – what about cowboy games on mobile? Western-themed titles aren't an outlier by any mark, but which ones are definitely worth playing? Sadly, there's no Red Dead official 'blah's on iOS just yet, besides the companion app, but these should give you the same gun slinging, rooting tooting vibes.

It's been a busy ol' week in Steel Media, that's for sure. In case you missed yesterday's announcement, Pocket Gamer got a fresh new look that's been well worth shouting about. I know, it's been on the cards for a fair while and you'll see across all Steel Media sites how excited we are that it's finally here. Getting to the point, you should go check that out if you haven't already. Besides that, it's Friday again and you know what that means. It's time to check out the epic videos James has been putting up. He's off on holiday at the moment, livin' life and sleeping 'til noon and whatever it is people do on holiday, but he's not left you hanging. Have a look at the vids you can catc…

Top 5 artistic point and click mobile puzzlers for iOS

The wonderful thing about puzzlers is that they come in all different shapes and sizes. From cosy campfire cookers through to rearranging noir-style frames, all it needs to do is get your brain ticking on. These ones in particular might have a bucket-load of substance, but they're also stunning to look at. More than just getting through levels and solving the challenges at hand, these point and click puzzlers draw you into the story and make you question what's going on as well as wanting to know more. This isn't a closed conversation, though. Because we know there are way more than five artistic puzzlers on the market, let us know what your favourites are in the comments below. Gorogoa &…

Good day and happy Monday to you all, I know it's been a little while since you last heard from me, but it's been busy AND I was off on holiday last week, lucky me. Since I'm still settling into working after some chill time and I put gloves on my feet this morning instead of socks, let's have a look at what James has been up to. If you've not been hovering about for the last fortnight, you might have missed the fact that AppSpy's YouTube channel has had a makeover. Now it's sporting our familial site, Pocket Gamer's, logo (since AppSpy is connected to PG anyway), but that's the only change. It's still the same great content with the bearded wonder.

These are the 5 best tower defence games for iPhone

There are loads of genres that are synonymous with mobile, and one of those is tower defence. It's sort of fallen onto hard times in recent years though, with more powerful phones able to deal with more complex games. That doesn't mean you should ignore tower defence games though, far from it. Because while they might seem a tad old fashioned now, the best ones still offer some bite-sized strategy when you're on the go. And, on top of that, they're often an awful lot of fun. And who doesn't like fun? No one important, that's for sure. That said, if you think we've missed anything out from our list, then be sure to let us know, in the kindest way possible, in the comments section at the bot…
