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

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…

The Thursday Find - Kick Ass Commandos

Thursday has barrelled into view like a drunken bear stumbling through the woods in search of picnic baskets to snaffle. Silly Thursday, what are you like eh? Always stomping around and getting up to mischief. Anyway this Thursday we're going to do a Thursday Find. It might be the last one, I haven't decided yet. If it isn't, next week's is going to be a little different. So if you're a fan of the content you'd best get snuggled in, because things are going to be changing in seven day's time. As usual though you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you wanted to say anything in the comments, they're down at the bottom of the article.…

Hints, tips, and tricks for Rolly Vortex

Hints, tips, and tricks for Rolly Vortex

Rolly Vortex is a game about, well, rolling through a vortex. I mean, you're pretty smart, you could probably have worked that out for yourself, right? I'm sorry, I'll try and be less patronising next time round. Anyway, just because you know what Rolly Vortex is, doesn't mean you're getting the most out of it. Sure it looks simple, but there are actually some hidden depths here, if you start poking around with your fingers and the other bits of you you use to find things out. Which is why I thought I'd cobble together a beginner's guide. Just to ensure that when you first come to rolling through that vortex you're going to be the best roller that the world has ever seen. Or at least in th…

Hints, tips, and tricks for No Brakes io

No Brakes io is a mix between all those .io games you've played and Amiga classic Skidmarks. In other words, it's a pretty twitchy racer that involves swooping your way around a series of different tracks. The big twist is that it's a multiplayer game, and the rewards you get at the end of the race are based on how high up the rankings you finished. Or if you finished at all. It might seem like a pretty simple proposition, but there's actually quite a lot going on here. So I figured it'd be a good idea to bash together a guide to make sure you're getting the most out of the experience. And always crossing that finish line first. Don't crash The key to the game is not crashing. Yes there…

The Thursday Find - REKT

Well hello there. It's nice to see you. Been a while. Been up to anything nice? You didn't!?! Really? That is certainly a turn up for the books. Although you should probably go to the doctor and get that checked out. Y'know, just in case. Anyway, you might have noticed that it's Thursday. And that means it's time to do a Thursday Find. That's when we pick the one game that's come out this week that you definitely, definitely should be playing. And quite frankly this week the choice was pretty damn simple. As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you've got experiences with the game you want to share, or you just want to tell…

The Tuesday Best of - Stunt racing games

It's October 3rd. There seem to be a lot of people posting a picture to that effect around the internet, so I figured I'd jump in on the action like the content legend that I am. It's also Tuesday, and we all know what that means around these parts. That's right, it means it's time for another instalment of the Tuesday best-of, everyone's favourite post where I round up the best games in a specific mobile genre. And today is going to be no different. Today we're going to look at the best stunt car games on iOS. It's mainly to celebrate the fact that REKT came out this week, and I really really like REKT. As you'll be able to tell if you read the next paragraph. Anyway, click the emboldened…

The Monday Musing - Why Donald Trump should play First Strike

Ah Monday, the jewel in the crown of our human suffering. All days are not born equal, and Monday is definitely born worse. I'm sorry Monday, it's not your fault, you just ended up in the worst possible place. To try and alleviate some of the malaise, Monday is when we here at AppSpy like to have a muse about things. It might not be funny, it might not be right, and it might sound a lot like a stream of consciousness, but that's all you can really expect from us on this most miserable of days. And since nuclear war is on everyone's minds at the moment, I thought I'd take the opportunity to muse about a game that made nuclear annihilation fun, but also absolutely terrifying. You can click o…

Hi there Thursday party people, and welcome to another edition of oh cool it's Thursday I should probably make some content. But it's fine, because I always know what the content is going to be because I plan ahead and I am dead smart.

The Tuesday Best of - AR games for iOS 11

It looks like it's Tuesday already. So that's something, I guess. And as you all know, Tuesday is when we round up three of the best games in a specific genre on the App Store. I think you can probably guess what I'm going to be rounding up today. Yup, that's right, it's AR games. A whole bunch came out on the App Store in the wake of iOS 11, so I figured it made sense to tell you which of them you should download. Because, to all intents and purposes, that is my job. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you've got your own AR suggestions, feel free to add them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. The Machines This…

The Monday Musing - What AR gaming needs to do to succeed

Well, last week was all about the AR wasn't it? AR this and AR that and the new iPhone is expensive but it does AR things so that's cool. Is AR the future of gaming? I don't know. I'll be honest, I'm not really sure it's the present of gaming yet. So in this week's Monday Musing I'm going to have a muse about what AR games need to do in order to to become an important force in mobile gaming. I've got some hints, I've got some tips, and I've got a whole shed full of mad ideas. If you've got any ideas that you think might help, feel free to chuck them into the comments section at the bottom of the article. I'm pretty sure that, together, we can make AR gaming incredible.

The Tuesday best of - Games like Deus Ex GO

Sometimes here at AppSpy we like to be controversial. I know, I know, I'm surprised too. I thought we just said the nice things that the nice people wanted to hear. But no, we like to stick our oar in, wiggle it around, and see how long this metaphor can be stretched out for. Anyway, in our regular piece of Tuesday content this week, I've decided to throw up the three best GO games that aren't actually GO games. So they're like, GO-style games. Or something like that. Basically puzzle games that dress themselves up like third person adventures. And are good. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got your own sug…

The Monday Musing - The 3 most interesting mobile games on KickStarter right now

Do you remember when Kickstarter was heralded as the future of game funding? That didn't really pan out did it? But that doesn't mean that there aren't still some excellent games on the service that are looking for funding. And since it's Monday, I thought I'd have a muse about three of them that look particularly promising. There's a big mix of styles here, and there might be something that you fancy throwing some monies at. I don't mind, that's up to you, it's your money. To break with tradition, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head on over to their KS pages.
