The 5 games you need to play on your Black Friday iPhone and iPad purchases

Well, it's that week again. Black Friday is almost upon us, and that can only mean one thing - deals, deals, deals. But this isn't DealSpy, that's a completely different website. This is AppSpy, so I thought we'd start off the week by looking at the games you should be grabbing on the swanky new iPhone you're going to try and get cheap over the next few days. We're specifically looking at games that are really going to shine on your new phone or tablet. The sort of thing you're going to whip out to show your mum to justify the price you just spent on, what is essentially, a few bits of glass, plastic, and metal. You can click on the emboldened names of the games to download them from the A…

Everything you need to know about Shadow Fight 3 for iPhone and iPad

Okay, it's Thursday, so that means that it's time for the Thursday find. Except I've gone and changed the name of it, because quite frankly The Thursday Find is one of the worst possible SEO titles that I've ever heard for anything. I'm so sorry I've let you all down like this. Anyway, the format of the content is going to be basically the same. I'm going to pick a game, write some stuff about it, and give you a link to download it. It's pretty smart, right? It's just the name that has changed, so don't you worry too much, regular reader. So yeah, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you've got your own experiences to share, feel free to stick them in the c…

What Harry Potter: Wizards Unite can learn from The Order of the Phoenix game

The big news in mobile gaming last week revolved around everyone's favourite boy wizard. That's because Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was announced. It's an AR game built by Niantic. So that's the creators of Pokemon GO taking on one of the most beloved popular cultural phenomena of our time. Now, while other websites might be writing articles speculating about what the game might look like, and taking guesses at when the game is actually going to come out, I thought I'd do something a little different. After all this is App Spy, and we love to do things a little different around here. So I'm going to take a look at the Harry Potter game that Wizards Unite should copy. It is, in my humble op…

Everything you need to know about South Park: Phone Destroyer for iPhone and iPad

Well, Thursday has rolled around, and the big release this week is South Park: Phone Destroyer. It's not your typical free to play tie-in game though, it's actually a pretty impressive card scrapper with some nice ideas. Which made me think that I should probably do something telling you everything you need to know about the game. After all, that's definitely the sort of thing that someone might Google, getting me them sweet, sweet SEO hits and what not. You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you've got any questions you want answered, feel free to chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article and we'll do our best to answer it with…

Which is better, the Xbox One X, or the iPhone X? You might be shocked by the answer

You know what, I'm not even going to try and beat around the bush with this one, because let's be honest, that's not what you expect from me. It's time to have the show down to end all show downs, it's time to decide which is the best piece of new kit that came out recently that's got an X in its name. On the one side you've got the iPhone X, the tenth anniversary edition of Apple's world destroying mobile phone. On the other side you've got the Xbox One X, which as far as I can tell is a large, expensive doorstop. Sure, the new Microsoft console might have more X's in its name, but does that really matter? Well that's what we're going to find out, in a little piece of content I like to ca…

The Thursday Find, our weekly iPhone and iPad recommendation - The Muscle Hustle

Is Dreamworks Universe of Legends suitable for younger mobile gamers?

Have you ever wondered what a team-up between Po from Kung-fu Panda, a dragon from How to Train Your Dragon, and another character from a third Dreamworks property might look like? No? Me neither, but some people probably have, and they're who I'm writing this content for. That's because Dreamworks: Universe of Legends came out last week. It's a free to play casual RPG featuring heroes from a whole bunch of Dreamworks animation properties. And it's quite a lot of fun, if you're into that sort of thing. But there are a few nooks and crannies that people who are unfamiliar with the genre might have trouble with, especially if they're younger players. And since that's pretty much who the game…

The Thursday Find, our favourite game of the week - Time Recoil

Oh look it's Thursday again. I know I said things were going to change around here last week, but I've decided some things are better staying the way they are. At least for the time being anyway. But don't get too attached to anything, destruction is the nature of the universe. All of that means that we're going to do another Thursday Find. That's when we write about one game that you definitely should be playing this week. It was hard picking just one, but I think I've spotted an under-appreciated doozy that's going to make you go “oh, thanks for finding us that under-appreciated doozy, Harry.” As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from…

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Color Ballz for iPhone

Color Ballz is one of those little games that you're going to get horribly addicted to. I of course mean that in the best possible way. Like, you're not going to go out and mug old ladies just so you can get another hit. It's free, it's ad-supported, and it's an awful lot of fun. If you don't know what it is, allow me to enlighten you. Imagine a mix betwee Breakout and Pachinko. You're controlling a paddle at the bottom of the screen, and you need to hit falling balls into a funnel. The more balls you get in the funnel, the more points you get. There are a few twists though. You've only got a limited number of balls, and once they've all dropped below your paddle it's game over. Don't fret…

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Into the Dead 2

Into the Dead 2 is a pretty darn slick mixture of auto-runner and FPS. It's all about weaving through hordes of zombies, shooting them in the face while you can, and trying not to die. Although it's pretty cool when you die because you briefly get to see your own organs before you succumb to the nomming of the undead. But if you'd rather avoid getting your innards ripped out, you've come to the right place. We've put a good few hours into the game since it hit the App Store at the end of last week, and we reckon we've collated some slick-ass hints and tips to make sure you're going to get the most out of the game. So without further ado, let's get cocked, locked, and ready to rock. By whic…
