The best games on sale on iPhone and iPad right now - March 1st

Oh hi there Wednesday. You're the day dedicated to Odin, the Allfather. You probably already knew that though. Except you probably didn't, because you're a day, and days tend not to really know anything. Anyway, rather than sacrificing ourselves in the branches of the World Tree, here at AppSpy we spend our Wednesdays rounding up the best games that are on sale right now on iPad and iPhone. Just seems simpler somehow. There are a few gems here, and one game that didn't really come out all that long ago. And don't forget you can click the emboldened name of the game to head to the App Store and fill your boots. With games. Game boots? Football Manager Mobile 2017 - £6.99 / $6.99 T…

Breath of the Wild hands-on and a whole load of Switch news

Look, I know we're AppSpy. I know we're supposed to sit around and talk about apps and the various things we do to spy on them. But it's Switch release week, and our video arm has gone and made a video. And it's a video of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is probably one of the most anticipated portable games in, oh I don't know, FOREVER. And I love content synergy so much, so I just had to show you it. The video features everyone's favourite person called James, and Pocket Gamer's editor Glen Fox. It's Glen that's been playing the game, and while he's embargoed up the wazoo, he still dishes some dirt on the latest entry in the classic series. You can watch the video... NOW. Y…

The Tuesday best of - Facebook Messenger games

Oh look, it's already Tuesday. Together we have defeated Monday, left it a bloody and gibbering wreck on the floor, and moved on without a single backwards glance. Well done us, top marks. But Tuesday here at AppSpy means it's time to look at three great games you should be playing on your mobile right now. And I've decided to come at this from leftfield this week. Rather than looking at games on the App Store, we're going to look at Facebook Messenger games. In fact, we're going to look at these three Facebook Messenger games. Snake Obviously I'm going to tell you that you should be playing snake on your phone. If it was up to me we'd all still be playing Snake on our battered old Nok…

Battle Breakers is an upcoming iPad, iPhone, and Android game from Epic - here's everything you need to know

The big mobile gaming news out of GDC yesterday was that Epic has a new game coming to iOS and Android. It's called Battle Breakers, it's been soft launched in the Philippines, and someone got up early this morning to have a play on it. That someone was me, and I've collected all the information you need to know about the game in this handy piece of informative yet exciting content. You're welcome. Send coffee. What is it? Battle Breakers is a free to play casual-ish RPG. Imagine if Minesweeper was simpler, yet also a bit more complex, and you're about a quarter of the way there. You've got a team of cartoon heroes stood along the bottom of the screen. The rest of the level is made up of…

Why Minecraft: Pocket Edition is the best version of Mojang's building classic

Minecraft: Pocket Edition is the game that keeps on giving. It's massive, it's always getting updated, and there's a huge community of fellow builders out there. And since Mojang added the option to play online, things have got even more interesting. Minecraft: Pocket Edition is starting to be one of those games that does do exactly what it says on the tin, and that's no bad thing. But is Minecraft: Pocket Edition the best way to play Mojang's world conqering build-'em-up? Well we're AppSpy, so we're sort of contractually obliged to say yes. And we've stuck the reasons into list form. But if you think we're wrong, feel free to shout as us in the comments. We love it. It fits in your pocke…

Last week on Pocket Gamer - 27th February

What’s going on in the world of portable gaming? That’s the very question we ask of our sister site PocketGamer every week. To PG’s credit, they’re normally kind enough to answer. When they’re not lost in a Nintendo Switch daydream, that is. Here are the hot topics that have been getting the PocketGamer mob excited over the past seven days or so. Ask PG anything about the Switch The Nintendo Switch console hits shops this Friday, but the PG team already has its unit courtesy of Nintendo. As such, the big feature last week was PG’s hands-on preview of the diminutive handheld-console hybrid. Should you be putting in a last-minute pre-order? In addition…

The Monday Musing - It's Pokemon Day! Here are some other mobile games that should have days

It's the most wonderful day of the year. No, not Christmas. Not even my birthday. It's Pokemon Day. 21 years ago the first Pokemon game came out in Japan. Pokemon is now officially old enough to drink in America. Well done Pokemon. But that got me thinking, in classic me fashion, about what other games deserve to have their own special day. And what could those special days entail. And when they might happen. And some other stuff. So that's this week's Monday Musing for you then. Mobile games that deserve their own special holiday. I don't know either, it's been a long day. If you've got your own suggestions, then stick them in the comments all the way down there. Clash Royale Clash Ro…

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. Click the emboldened titles of the games and you'll be swooshed off to the App Store where you can download them over your interwebs…

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

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,…
