The top 5 gamebooks like 80 Days on Android

80 Days has flown around the world on iOS and has finally made its final stop on Android. You'll know that much already because you'll be playing it as I speak, I'm sure. It's an absolutely astounding game with one problem: it ends. So what we've come up with is a list of alternatives on Android to help you fend off that cold turkey feeling. 1. Banner Saga Banner Saga isn't strictly a gamebook but definitely takes influence from them during the more talky-bits and for that reason it has to make this cut. As far as I'm converned, any reason to promote Banner Saga is a good one. 2. Joe Dever's Lone Wolf This one most certainly is a gamebook and is mighty proud of tha…

Our top 10 most watched videos of 2014

We're looking back at 2014 a lot at the moment - it's awards season, after all - and part of that process is seeing what kind of videos were wildly popular on our YouTube channel this past year. Big name games feature heavily in our most watched top 10, with a couple of PC / console ports representing the world of traditional gaming in a major way. But mobile-only or "best on mobile" game reviews, graphic comparisons, and hands-on previews dominate: from massive military shooters, to fluffy but frightening favourites. I wonder if there are any conclusions that could be drawn about you lot that visit AppSpy every day? Except that you're lovely, obvs. BioShock Hands-On Modern Combat 5:…

4 Cut the Rope cakes you can make at home that will make you shout 'Om Nom nom' through mouthfuls of delicious baked loveliness

Om Nom is undoubtedly one of my favourite characters in gaming: the cute eyes, adorable mannerisms, and our shared love of eating sweets makes me want to reach into the game and give him a big hug whenever I fail him by managing to screw up a level. The fact that people on the Internet have decided to make cakes based on this hero of Cut the Rope fills me with joy, and I think it'll do the same for you too. So if you're feeling in a creative mood, you'll definitely want to check out the stellar work by superstar YouTubers CakesByChoppA, iHasCupquake, Abe's World, and cakezonepl below.

The top 5 smart devices for mobile phones

Do you have a mobile phone and more money than sense? Are you fed up of having to do everything yourself and wish that there were smarter devices that could just do it all instead?

The 5 most ridiculous smartphone endorsements by celebrities

The 5 most ridiculous smartphone endorsements by celebrities

Sometimes the rich and famous decide to endorse brands and products in exchange for money. Sounds absurd and a little bit underhanded, I know, but it's true. Sometimes those brands and products are smartphones, and sometimes these celebrities appear in video advertisements in the hope that the masses will readily consume them, and start to think about how lovely and shiny and desirable said brands and products are. Many of them are completely ridiculous, and these are the five best. Hence the article title. HTC and Gary Oldman - Now this is what you want from a phone ad: a man making vaguely threatening remarks to you. The iPhone 6 and U2 - Well now... this one went south pretty quickl…

These are the 7 very best 'playable' Angry Birds cakes on the Internet

I was looking for Angry Birds cakes to put together a little video article like last week's Minecraft cakestravaganza, but along the way I noticed that a whole bunch of the videos showing them off described them as "playable". Completely fascinated, I fell down a rabbit hole of cake-based YouTube awesomeness, and found that lots of cake makers have decided that just eating a delicious baked treat isn't enough - now they want you to be able to play with your food. Intrigued? Take a look at these super sweet cakes, courtesy of YouTubers electricpigtv, Ivan Alexander, EvanTubeHD, Brad Simmons, vallauryne, Richard Houghton, and Veronica Yang. electricpigtv Ivan Alexander EvanTubeHD B…

7 mouth-watering Minecraft treats that you can make at home, plus videos of how to make them

If you're into your baking (or in the very least know someone who is), and you're not a stranger to a little mining and crafting in Mojang's mobile creative classic - Minecraft: Pocket Edition - then you're going to want to take a look at this big collection of culinary delights, which have been captured in video form. There are all sorts of cakes and sweets in the 7 videos listed below, all from really cool YouTuber types, including: MyCupcakeAddiction, yoyomax12, Happy Cake By Renee, iHasCupquake, and Rosanna Pansino.

Top 6 Rhythm Action Games on iPhone and iPad

Top 6 Rhythm Action Games on iPhone and iPad

For a quick fire burst of snackable gaming, you can't beat a bit of bemani, or 'rhythm action' as it's become known. Popularised by Guitar Hero and the like, the music genre quickly became a staple of iOS gaming, with wannabe rock stars and bedroom DJs testing their skills on their touchscreen devices. With so many games to choose from, we thought it high-time we whittled the list down to the crucial six you absolutely must play. Oh, and don't think that we'll be covering any of that new age music stuff like Beat Hazard Ultra and Beat Sneak Bandit. That stuff has it's place and all, but this list is purely for the old-skool beat keepers.…


Top 3 iOS Games for March 2013

Top 3 iOS Games for March 2013

The year is finally on a roll and March saw a solid block of releases that finally made me have to pick and choose carefully. As always the judgment call on these is personal, so let us know what had you excited in the month of March. This is AppSpy's Top 3 iOS Games for March, 2013. Unmechanical (Teotl Studios) $2.99 Univ. While some have complained about the controls, I only found they added an endearing quality to the nameless robot your control. He's just a little bit clumsy thanks to his haphazard construction - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. That said, for a game with such a limited control scheme it manages to throw a whole lot of interesting puzzles at the player, makin…

QI's Top 10 iPhone Games for March, 2013

It's that time of the month again. Yes, it's time for the Quality Index's picks of March's most popular critical games (according to their aggregate sources), but more than that, when the QI list rolls around, you know Appspy's Top 3 isn't too far away at all! I'd say look for that early next week. If i'm wrong, blame Andrew! 1. Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption2. Brickout Zero Gravity3. Word Soup4. Cling!5. Super Stickman Golf 26. Nimble Quest7. King Cashing 28. Totems9. The Silent Age10. Block Fortress I'm trying something new this month that might help you out if you look at that list and want to see why these titles made their t…

Top 3 iOS Games for February 2013

You know, it's odd that I haven't had more requests for February's Top 3 list, but then again the competition was a bit crippled. Still, there were enough to choose from to make the final list a hard pick, so lets jump in to the Top 3 iOS Games for February, 2013.   Finding Teddy (LookAtMyGame) $1.99 Univ. This month has had a bit of a theme, but considering my long standing love of Adventure games, I have to say I'm glad to see so many great releases like Finding Teddy making their way on to the App Store. Taking on shades of classics like Loom, the player must find and utilize music in order to appease the wild creatures of the strange new world she's in. It's a heart-warming tale,…

Top 3 iOS Games for January 2013

I hate playing the catch-up game, but with this extended dry spell of a release period, I guess there's no harm in clearing our backlogs. In the least it's made for a far more comprehensive list to choose from for January, so lets find out who topped the charts in AppSpy.com's Top 3 iOS Games for January, 2013. Table Top Racing (Playrise Edge) $2.99 Univ. Look, I may be the only one who played Table Top Racing and put it down without losing an iota of excitement from the hype, but even without my personal bias the game is a solid entry in to the 'Kart' genre. The key to its success is its simplicity; there's no bloat to weigh it down, so you can jump in, enjoy a race or two, and jump out…

Honorable Mentions and People's Choice - 2012

We at AppSpy are always ready to admit that our particular tastes when it comes to games may not match the broader spectrum of gamers out there - for one there's a very broad demographic of people to cater for ranging from the young to the old, different cultures, and personal likes and dislikes. The following is a quick list of the runners-up - games that only barely missed the Top 10 and worth picking up. Tentacles: Enter The Dolphin JAZZ: Trump's Journey Ski Safari Shark Dash Nihilumbra Squids Wild West Knights of Pen & Paper Super Hexagon Puzzlejuice Reckless Racing 2 Lastly, there were a lot of submissions, some more verbose than others, but the following are the ou…

AppSpy's Top 10 iOS Games of 2012 - Part 2

2012 was the first full year of reviewing Apps that I experienced since working at AppSpy, and as a year of gaming in general it was quite impressive. We had a number of developers successfully port their games over by adapting their control schemes (like The World Ends With You: Solo Remix and Bastion), and on the complete other side of the spectrum we had engaging quick to play Indie titles like Super Hexagon, and Catch-22. The game to copy and clone this last year was definitely Temple Run with a glut of 3D imitators. Meanwhile the 2D endless runner genre continued on strong with many titles trying to be the next Jetpack Joyride. We saw sequels and follow-ups from studios that released t…

AppSpy's Top 10 iOS Games of 2012 - Part 1

As you may have already noticed, we're doing things a little differently this year. Seeing as Dave is contributing just as much to the year's reviews, we've decided to split the Top 10 in to two personal Top 5's. I know, it's unorthodox, but as always there's no order and we'll have plenty of runners up in a follow-up video to sate your thirst. For now lets check out AppSpy Andrew's 'Top 5 iOS Games for 2012'. Punch Quest by Rocketcat Games and Madgarden There are times when a developer creates a game that's almost too good. It sounds crazy, but imagine a title so addictive; so engaging thanks to its almost manic sense of variety, that you have no need to delve in to the paid-for option…
