Top 3 iOS Games for December 2012

The Top 3 Games for December always feels like a bit of a tease when everyone knows the Top 10 for 2012 is just around the corner, but we've got to fulfill our obligations and chief amongst these is letting people know what's worth grabbing right now. So lets cut to the chase and showcase AppSpy.com's Top 3 iOS Games for December, 2012. Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour (Gameloft) $6.99 Univ. After having about a month's worth of distance to consider Gameloft's latest entry in its modern-day shooter series, Zero Hour remains a solid shooter worth picking up, even if it doesn't match the highs of previous releases. Gameloft have deployed this title with the practiced skill that comes from having…

We couldn't cover everything we would have liked, so if there's anything you believe deserves a spot on the list, let us know down in the comments! This is AppSpy.com's Top 3 iOS Games for November, 2012.   Editor's Pick - Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders (Atypical Games) $4.99 Universal Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders kicks off this month's list with a bang.

Top 3 iOS Games for October 2012

For many, October means little more than 'the month before the AAA titles release'. While this is certainly true for most other platforms, the App Store is still churning out title after title, with many proving to be extremely entertaining (if not downright insanely addictive). So lets check out the month that was with AppSpy's Top 3 iOS Games for October, 2012. Girls Like Robots (Adult Swim Popcannibal) $2.99 Univ.I've learned many things from Girls Like Robots by Popcannibal and Adult Swim; for instance girls apparently love robots, while robots don't mind girls, but hate being trapped by them... OK maybe that's the only thing that really stands out, but darn it there's so much…

Top 3 iOS Games for September 2012

The energy in the air is almost palpable as we head in to the late-Autumn, early-Summer release line up and gamers everywhere on just about every platform are enjoying hot new titles. The App Store is no different, with September managing to blitz its way through some huge releases, so lets check them out in AppSpy's Top 3 iOS Games for September, 2012. FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS (Electronic Arts) $6.99 Univ.There's only so much you can do with long-established franchises that have yearly updates - of course they can package in a lot of small details, but as long as you can update the roster, there's no compulsion to buy a new sports game every year. FIFA SOCCER 13 could have eas…


Top 3 iOS Games for August 2012

Top 3 iOS Games for August 2012

Bastion (Warner Bros. Supergiant Games) $4.99 iPad OnlyIt's almost unfair that the iPad gets all the fun when it comes to Supergiant Games and Warner Bros. release of Bastion for the iOS platform, especially when it manages to feel so 'at home' thanks to its unique control method. Despite the lack of challenge in beating down enemy after enemy in this brawler, you'll keep coming back for more to learn the tale of 'the kid' and the world he inhabits. A real gem for iPad owners to enjoy. The World Ends With You: Solo Remix (SQUARE ENIX) $17.99/$19.99Balk at the price if you will, but aside from finding a copy on the Nintendo DS (which is - arguably - the 'better' release) for signif…

Top 3 iOS Games for July 2012

Up, down, up, down - this time of year is certainly proving to be a confusing one as we find the occasional bright, shining gem, only to be left dealing with a swathe of average titles that fail to live up to expectations. I'm still holding out hope for August's titles, but for those of you who can't wait lets go over the highlights as we cover the Top 3 iOS games for July, 2012. Editor's Choice: Tentacle Wars (FDG Mobile) $0.99First off the block is a game that takes a formula we've seen played around with in the past, but for the first time in quite a while someone has managed to add a unique twist that adds a surprising amount of depth. Tentacle Wars not only places you in cont…

Top 3 iOS Games for June 2012

The months keep on rolling by and we're already at the half-way point of the year. Let us know in the comments how the year has been treating you - Have you found some lasting gems? Is it all a bit hit and miss? Are we perhaps in the void just before the iPhone 5 gets released? Have your say!For those after some worthy picks, this is none other than the Top 3 iPhone Games for June, 2012. Squids Wild West (The Game Bakers) $0.99 Univ.I feel like I've sort of worn out Squids Wild West's welcome by talking about it so much, so I'll keep this short. When Squids first released on the App Store, we saw a game with a lot of potential - it managed to make turn-based strategy feel fresh an…

Top 3 iPhone Games for May 2012

As we usher in the new month it's only fair we say farewell to the month that was by awarding the best of the best with our personal recommendation. In a surprising last-second dash, May has turned out quite a few excellent titles, so lets see what has made the cut for 'AppSpy.com's Top iPhone Games for May, 2012'. Little Things Forever (KlickTock) $0.99 Univ.Reprising their clip-art I-Spy-esque title for the iPad from a couple years ago, KlickTock's Little Things Forever is an excellent example of elegance in gaming. From its clean, clear visual style, to it's wonderfully complex hand-designed collages and near endless randomized gameplay, there's little reason not to have this g…

Top 3 iPhone Games for April 2012

April has been an odd month - not particularly bursting with amazing titles, but not short of highlights either. As such this month's list is far more personal than ever and I'll try to explain my choices as best I can. Was there something you went gaga for this April? Let us know down in the comments.For now, this is AppSpy.com's Top 3 iPhone Games for April, 2012. Max Payne Mobile (Rockstar Games) $2.99 Univ.I accept that I seem to be in the minority in loving the iOS port of Rockstar Games' seminal third-person shooter, but its simplicity is what works in its favor, especially on a touch device. Clearing out rooms of enemies with a casual spray of a weapon and a bullet-time dod…

Top 3 iPhone Games for March 2012

I'm honestly a little surprised that I didn't receive more death-threats for not having a Top List up for March by now, but I can only assume people were satiated by the immense amounts of candy they're likely to have recently consumed. In any case, the delay was necessary to catch up to all the releases that came out at the month's end, so now we have a definitive list of titles to choose from. What's my personal pick of the month? You'll just have to wait and see...This is AppSpy.com's Top 3 iPhone Games for March, 2012. Swordigo (Touch Foo / Ville Mäkynen) $1.99 Univ.Swordigo was a bit of a dark-horse, promising little more than a simple Action-RPG platformer, but deliveri…

Top 3 iPhone Games for February 2012

February has been a surprising month, dishing out titles that were not only unexpected, but astoundingly entertaining. While a few genres were left out of the mix, most gamers were sure to find something they liked over the last month. However as always I'm ready to sift through the month that was and pick out some highlights for you to chew on if you're not distracted by larger titles being released on consoles in March.This is the Top 3 iOS Games for February, 2012. Beat Hazard Ultra (Cold Beam Games) $2.99 Univ.

Top 3 iPhone Games for January 2012

After the big release month of November and the surprisingly full-featured month of December, January was always going to feel like a slump no matter how good its releases were. Thankfully not every developer or publisher was afraid of this stigma and as a result iOS gamers were treated to some really fun games that helped to smooth things out. Starting as of this year we'll be dropping the numbered order of these top releases. The reasoning for this is that they all essentially represent the best of what's on offer, meaning any order given to them is purely personal preference. To offset this I'll be choosing one of the three games as my personal favorite - this will give you an…


Top 10 iPhone Games Of 2011

Top 10 iPhone Games Of 2011

For those that know me personally, 'top lists' are a topic I find to be profoundly difficult to participate in as there's always a point at which you're splitting hairs just for the sake of ranking one thing above or below another. Keeping this in mind, AppSpy.com's Top 10 iOS Games for 2011 has not been numbered for the simple reason that a game's position ultimately means so very little when you consider how many games it had to overcome to reach that spot. Hold on to your pitchforks though as Dave, Richard and I have selected our personal favorites of the year, so at least three games will be going home with the knowledge that they managed to crack the cold-hard shell of these r…

Top 3 iOS Games for December 2011

Before we get to the big lists of the year we need to follow protocol and make sure we acknowledge the best games of December 2011. With this in mind, December had some surprisingly hefty releases, though not all of them turned out to be as exciting as we had hoped. None the less as always there's some spark of hope given the amount of releases each month, so lets get stuck in. 3. Sonic CD - SEGA $2.99 For many, including myself, the opportunity to play Sonic CD on its original console was a rare one (or at least rarer than most) and while future consoles had versions of the game, it was never quite the same. Thankfully clever-cookie Christian Whitehead spent the time rebuilding…

Top 3 iOS Games for November 2011

Transcript: Despite November's reputation as a major release month for the wider sphere of gaming, iOS gamers have had somewhat slimmer pickings when it comes to high quality titles. Then again, if you happen to have a decent PC or any of the major consoles you're bound to be catching up on what's on offer there instead of gaming on your iOS device of choice, but that doesn't mean there aren't some spare moments in the day that could be filled up with something more entertaining. This is where AppSpy's list of the Top 3 iPhone games for November excels as all the games offer bite-sized gameplay and fun while still taking the time to offer something better than your average arcade…
