The AppSpy end of year awards: The 3 best games for iPhone and iPad of January 2017

It's that time of year again. We're all getting excited that 2017 is nearly over, looking forward with naïve hope that maybe, just maybe, 2018 is going to be slightly better. But there's still time to squeeze some content out of the dregs of the year. So what we're going to do here at App Spy is have a look back at the last 12 months of iOS gaming, and tell you which were the three best games that came out each month in 2017. Because that's just the sort of thing we like to do.

Oh look, it's Thursday. In fact, it's the last Thursday of 2017. That means that this is going to be the last Thursday Find of the year. And it's a pretty good find.

How did a Cuphead knock off make it on to the App Store?

How did a Cuphead knock off make it on to the App Store?

It's been a while since we've seen a flagrant rip off landing on the App Store. But yesterday we all got a bit excited because we thought that Cuphead, a gorgeous looking 2D shooter that has been wowing players on Xbox and Steam, had come out on iOS. That wasn't the case though. It was an elaborate scam. The app was £4.99, and at first glance it looked legit. The developer was right, there was a website, and the screenshots certainly suggested that Cuphead had miraculously made its way to the App Store. The game wasn't up for long though. The developers made it known it was by no-means an official port, and before the day was up it had been deleted from listings. If you spent any mon…

The best gifts for iPhone and iPad gamers this Christmas

It's the Monday before Christmas, which means you've still got a bit of time to go out and get the mobile gamer in your life some presents. Or order them off the internet. I don't know, there aren't any mobile gamers in my life to be honest. Anyway, we thought it was as good a time as any to put together a guide to let you know some of the cool stuff out there that a mobile gamer might just appreciate.

Oh what a week it has been. Games have been flying at us left right and centre. Some of them have been ace, some of them have been real good, and some of them have been amazing.

New large-scale battles head up Lineage 2: Revolution’s end of year update

Few mobile MMOs can claim late night talk show host endorsement, but if what’s good enough for Conan O’ Brian is good enough for you, a new update means now is the best time to try Lineage 2: Revolution.

It's the fourth day of the working week. Or if you're freelance, it's the nth day of infinity. Seriously I'm not even sure it is Thursday. I just had to double check and I'm not 100% that someone isn't trying to fool me into thinking it's a day that it isn't. Anyway, whatever day it is, we're going to have a look at the game that came out on the App Store this week that you definitely should be playing it. It's the Thursday Find, it's just not called that any more for a lot of very boring reasons that, quite frankly, have nothing to do with you. This week we really are spoiled for choice on the App Store though. It's one of those weeks where devs clearly didn't have a call round to see if…

It's pared back, but that gets rid of a lot of the fluff that we've seen in the console iterations of the game.…
