Ghost Recon Wildlands might not be coming to iPhone and iPad, but these games are a bit like it

Ghost Recon Wildlands is the latest addition to the Tom Clancy gaming canon. It's a massive open world shooter that takes the series back to its modern day military roots. No more robots here. Obviously it's not going to come to the App Store though. And that's the sort of thing we care about here – AppSpy hearts mobile IDST. So what can you do if you want to shoot people in the face on your phone? Well, you could do worse than trying out one of these little gems. We've got man shooters, tank shooters, and more multiplayer than you can shake a stick at.

The 5 best iPad and iPhone games this week - February 24th

The week is coming to an inevitable and somewhat unceremonious end. We're all tired, we all smell a bit, and we'd quite like the weekend to turn up so we can spend 48 hours in bed. Crying. But if you want something to do in the brief moments of respite when the sadness isn't leaking out of your face, what are your options? I mean, you've got loads, but here at AppSpy we concentrate on the mobile gaming side of things. So here's a list of the five best iOS games that came out this week, with links to go and do a download of them. If you make it through Saturday and Sunday, pop back and see us next week. We got your back. Dungeon Rushers - £4.99 / $4.99 A clever, really well writte…

Mass Effect Andromeda might be out soon, but the original should come to iPhone, iPad, and Android

Mass Effect Andromeda is so close I can almost taste it. It's just there, just out of reach, waiting for me to cuddle and squeeze all of the spacey goodness out of it. I mean this is legitimately the only game I'm excited about. But excitement is no good. It's useless. What we need is content. Glorious content covered in all of the things that make us so happy and glad to be alive in this time of all of that content that's happening. So I've whipped up a little list about why the original Mass Effect should definitely come to mobile. I don't think I'd be able to contain my glee if it did. Mainly because I'd have a lot of glee. Agree? Disagree? You're a spam bot? Let us know in the comment…

The Thursday Find - Puff

Thursday has stumbled into the building like a bedraggled shopper trying to avoid a buffeting from the wind and the rain. It's dripping all over the place, making all sorts of mess. But that doesn't mean that we have to treat it with cruelty. Instead, let's show Thursday how much we love it by telling it all about one of the most interesting games that's come out on the App Store over the last 24 hours. This one's a simple creature, but there's a lot of fun to be had with its manic shooting. It's called Puff, and if you click the emboldened name of it just below the end of this paragraph, you'll be whisked away to the App Store where you can download it. Puff – Free Puff is a three…

Horizon Zero Dawn will never come to iPad and iPhone, but here are some games to play instead

Horizon Zero Dawn will never come to iPad and iPhone, but here are some games to play instead

Horizon Zero Dawn is, if you'll forgive the pun, on the horizon. Is that even a pun? I can't decide. Anyway, it's coming out next week. It's a big shiny action RPG from the developer behind Killzone, and it's getting some pretty good reviews. But here at AppSpy we only really like big shiny things if they fit in our pockets. Like medium sized emeralds. But more like mobile games. And that got me thinking, since Horizon Zero Dawn isn't coming to mobile, what could we play instead? Well, we could play these games. They might not be as polished, they might not have as many buttons, and all-in-all they probably won't be as good as Horizon Zero Dawn. But they might pass the time, and sometimes…

Tower Keepers - Here's everything you need to know about the new iPad and iPhone game

Tower Keepers is a game about heroes that live in a tower. I mean I'm pretty sure that much is obvious from the name. What might not be so obvious is what the game's actually about. After all, sounds like another tower defence title, yeah? NO. It's actually a casual RPG with some interesting twists and PvP modes. And I've found all of this out so you don't have to go searching for information from other, lesser content hubs. Like your friends, or whatever. So here, in easy to digest form, is a breakdown of everything you need to know about Tower Keepers. Oh, and click the emboldened name of the game below this paragraph and you'll be able to download it from the App Store. Bish bash bosh.…

The Tuesday best of - Political games on iPad and iPhone

Games can be fun. Games can be a lovely distraction from the horrible reality of the world we have to spend most of our time in. But they can also shine a light on some of the darkness that we prefer to avoid. Which leads us to this week's Tuesday Best-of. We're going to have a look at three of the best politically charged games you can grab from the App Store. It sort of seemed like a good idea, what with the world collapsing into an ever-more likely third world war. These games are going to take you to places that maybe you don't want to go. They're going to ask questions that maybe you don't want to answer. But they're important, and if you haven't played them yet, then you should. Oh,…

How to play Blocky Snowboarding on iPad and iPhone

Who doesn't like snowboarding? And with global warming set to make all the snow disappear, what better way to experience the thrills of sliding down a mountain than with a mobile game? Best not to answer that, actually. Anyway, Blocky Snowboarding came out last week, and it's actually not completely terrible. In fact it's so not completely terrible I thought I'd write up some tips and tricks to make sure you're getting the most out of shredding the powder. I don't know if that's a snowboarding term and quite frankly I don't care. Anyway, enough passive aggressive preamble. Here's a breakdown of some of the skills you're going to have to master, as well as a few ideas you're going to have t…

The Monday Musing - Is NOVA Legacy a step in the wrong direction for mobile?

Hello there. It's Monday. And we all know what that means around these parts. It's time to have a ruminate about one of the big things that's happened to mobile gaming in the past 7 days. But what shall we talk about today team? Well, I think it's only right that we have a ponder on the concept of the mobile remastering. After all, Gameloft has announced that it's going to release a spruced up version of its sort-of-classic Halo-aping shooter NOVA. The game is going to be called NOVA Legacy (sorry, I'm not putting all those dots in its name, and let's be honest you're not going to be doing that when you're searching for information about the game, either), and it's going to retell the stor…

Who has the best iPad and iPhone games, DC or Marvel?

Injustice 2 has just been soft-launched in a few countries. So our much more effective video arm has grabbed some footage to show you what to expect from the kicky punch super hero game. To summaries - if you’ve played the first game on mobile you’re going to know exactly what to expect. Capes, swipes, and some card collecting too.

Here's our beginners guide to Slayaway Camp on iPad and iPhone

Slayaway Camp is a brilliant new action game that sees you taking on the role of a pyshotic killer. Not in a weird way though. It’s an homage to the finest era of the slasher movie - the 80’s - when no teen was safe from the hacking blows of some maniac swamp-dweller. So I thought I’d write up a little bit of a guide for the game, so you know what you’re going to be doing when you get started. I mean, you’re going to be murdering super cute little polygon people, but there’s more to it than that. Here then are some hints and tips to get you up to speed. Oh, and if you want to download the game just bash the link in the emboldened name just below the end…

Thursday has rumbled around like a thing that rumbles around every seven days. And that means it's time to dig up a gem from the games that came out this week and tell you why you should think about giving it a go. It's been a pretty good week for mobile gaming as well, so deciding what I should tell you to grab was pretty tricky. Fret ye not though, because I got there in the end. You can click on the emboldened name of the game just below this paragraph if you want to download it. And I think you should. But what is it? Well, what indeed. It's...

The 3 best Tin Man Games adventures you can play on your iPad and iPhone

Tin Man Games has got a new version of the classic gamebook The Warlock of Firetop Mountain coming out next week, so I thought this was a pretty good time to look at some of the company’s other games and decide which three are the best. Yeah, that’s right, it’s time for one of those articles where I make subjective choices about games in order to get you riled up and shouting at me in the comments. Alas though, it never really works. Anyway, if you’re just starting your Tin Man journey, these three games are the ones you should be starting with. And if you click on their emboldened names you’ll be taken to the App Store where you can download them. Awwwwww yea…
