Learn how to play Monster Hunter Freedom Unite with AppSpy - Part 9

After the mysterious disappearance of Part 8 of our playthrough of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on iOS, the trio of James, Harry, and myself are back and raring to go. Harry's made himself a hat made of wasps, I've got some spiky shoulder pads, and James... James is still rocking the first jumper you get. After we berate him mercilessly, we all set off into the wilds to fight Hermitaurs, Giaprey, and even a Velocidrome. Want to watch the entire series? Check out our playlist on YouTube.…

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS Multiplayer Meeting Point

Every Friday we play Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on Twitch, and every Friday we see you guys and girls talking about setting up multiplayer sessions of your own. So it's high time we had an official AppSpy Community multiplayer room, populated with some of our awesome Monster Hunters. Here are the details; Details After the Monster Hunter stream - at 5PM UK, 9AM Pacific, 12 Eastern each Friday - we suggest that anyone fired up for some monster hunting hop into Online Gathering Hall 277779. If that room's full, try the next room numerically (277780, 277781, 277782 etc) We'd also love for you to put the name of your Hunter in the comments section on this article so people, and do feel f…


These 8 bone crunching Stair Dismount videos made me do a sick in my mouth

These 8 bone crunching Stair Dismount videos made me do a sick in my mouth

If you've decided to visit your pals at AppSpy today while enjoying a delicious meal, put the fork down for a moment, or scoff it down real quick. Because with these Stair Dismount videos - nicked off of that Everyplay - bones are crunched, limbs are twisted, and in one particularly nasty video a body is completely torn apart. It's kind of gross, and I'm not really sure AppSpy should be showing you this stuff but I'm going to do it anyway because I'm a rebel. I'll say this though: I made the mistake of gobbling down a banana while looking for these clips, and I'm not ashamed to admit that a little bit of it came back up in the process. I sure hope that's mud. Getting the boot. Meh…


Hands-on with FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, the hotly anticipated mobile sequel to the biggest sports franchise in the world

Hands-on with FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, the hotly anticipated mobile sequel to the biggest sports franchise in the world

I'm not much of a football fan, as many of you will know by now, but I was really impressed by time with FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. There's clearly a lot of depth here for those that want it, and challenge for the FIFA veterans with eyes on the cup, but for a casual fan of football games, like me, it also contains a stripped back touch control method to get you playing well quickly. Click play on the video below for my preview of the soft-launched version that's currently doing the rounds in Canada.…

Hands-on with Beach Buggy Racing, the free-to-play racer filled with floaty fun

I'm reviewing Beach Buggy Racing over on Pocket Gamer, and this sequel to Beach Buggy Blitz is already shaping up to be a stonkingly good free-to-play arcade racer. It's bright and colourful, it's thrilling and tense, and it's just so beautifully put together. Here's a quick look at the game, which is out now globally.…

Hands-on with Dragon Quest, the JRPG masterpiece, rejuvenated

Originally released on the Famicom back in the mid-eighties, Dragon Quest is about as “classic” as classic JRPGs get. Koichi Nakamura, Koichi Sugiyama, Yuji Horii, and Akira Toriyama all collaborated on this genre defining first entry in the series, laying the groundwork for decades to come. It's now available on iOS and Android, so I've grabbed a code to show you the very early moments of the game, to give you a sense of how the game plays.…

Hands-on with RGB Express, a tiny little delivery of puzzling loveliness

Here's the deal: you have various coloured trucks, and each needs to pick up a parcel and deliver it to its destination. The truck can't double back on itself, and if you collide two trucks together then... well... you don't want that. RGB Express is cute and dinky and delightful, and it's just the right level of challenge to keep you thinking and experimenting, without frustrating. Here's my hands-on with the game.…

Surviving in Minecraft: Pocket Edition,  Episode 4 - Shining Light

In the latest episode of my journeys through the lands of Minecraft: PE, I begin fortifying my home from attacks by exploding cactus things, simply by using torches. There's also a moment when I try to tickle a wolf with a feather in order to make it like me, and I begin journeying even further into the newly-discovered underground cave. Plus: physics?…

Hands-on with Spider-Man Unlimited, in which Spidey turns his hand to auto-running

Peter Parker is a beloved Marvel character, and he and his alter ego Spider-Man, are a source of inspiration to many people, young and old. They certainly are to me. So it's with a little sadness I have to report that my small amount of time with Spider-Man Unlimited has found it to be a fairly by-the-numbers auto-runner with combat elements. It's got some neat stuff packed away in there though, which I'll show you in my hands-on video below.…

Genre Busters: best futuristic racers on iOS

This is an important list to James and myself, as we were raised on eye-bleedingly fast racing games like WipEout, F-Zero, and Extreme G. Over the course of an hour we discuss futuristic racers new and old, reminisce over fallen franchises, and generally get all nostalgic. It's fun, you'll like it, so click play on the video below.

Hands-on with Kapsula, where racing puzzlers solve you

Kapsula is set on a futuristic Russian communist planet, populated by clones who are all controlled by The Master. If that wasn't quite enough of an odd setup, the gameplay is somewhere between a cross of a racer, endless runner, and puzzler. Bizarre, but cool. Here's our video explaining why.…

Learn how to play Monster Hunter Freedom Unite with AppSpy - Part 7

While the cat's away the... something... something... Basically James was away for this episode so Harry and I run amok. A couple of members of the AppSpy / Pocket Gamer community join us in our ongoing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite quest, and show us their awesome armour sets while they lead us to easy victory after easy victory. Plus there's a lot of talk about pants. I think James might get mad when he gets around to watching the video below. Did you forget to watch the last episode? Rectify that.…

What is the Apple Watch? This five minute video explains all

Time is precious: there's a finite amount of it that we all have before the party's over, and using it wisely is the most important thing you can do. That's why people need watches, and why Apple thinks you need an Apple Watch. But since time is so precious, you probably didn't watch the entire Apple keynote the other day, as it was 90 minutes of tech chat and marketing buzzwords. What you need is a 5 minute video containing all the info you need. And you need it now. And here it is.…
