The Thursday Find - Touchdowners

Thursday has come crashing in like a wedding-interrupting spurned suitor. Hey the rest of the week, it's probably shouting, don't get married to anyone other than me.

But here at AppSpy we like to spend our Thursdays telling you about a game you should definitely download this week. It's a regular feature, it's called The Thursday Find, and you are literally reading it right now. Pretty exciting, right? This week we've got a lovely gem for you.

The Tuesday Best of - Metroidvanias for iPhone and iPad

Forma.8 came out last week. It's a clever twist on the metroidvania formula that sees you floating around gorgeous levels acquiring new skills along the way. It's slick and it's ever so slightly lovely. But it got me thinking about classic metroidvania games you could play on your iPhone. And that in turn set the content alarms screaming in my mind. Plus it's Tuesday, the day when we quite often round up three of the best games in a specific genre. Everything has fallen nicely into place. So here are the three best metroidvania games you can get on the App Store. Click on the emboldened names below to download them. And if you think I've missed anything, chuck your own suggestions in the c…

The Monday Musing - It's too hot, here are some hot games

It's too hot. Honestly, my brain isn't working. I live in a greenhouse. All I can think about is how hot it is. The answer to that is it is very hot. Hot hot hot. There is heat everywhere and I am incapable of escaping it. This may well be why I've gone ahead and written a piece of content about the best hot games on the App Store. Sure, it might not make much sense, but if you expected anything I did in this heat to make sense then you just don't know me at all. Click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you can think of other hot games, then put them in the hot comments so we can have a hot debate. It really is very hot.

Celebrate Father’s Day with Creature Quest this weekend

Creature Quest is pulling out all the stops for Father’s Day. The game’s decked out in a fatherly new theme, but there’ll be ample opportunity this month to collect rare creatures with two new celebratory events. Appeasing Poppa, the new event quest, runs through June 27. The Astral Watcher has landed in town, and he’s not messing around. He needs a rare gift or he’ll make good on his threat to destroy the entire city. It’s up to brave adventurers like yourself to head out and find a suitable present to give to the Watcher. In doing so, you might capture a rare Draconic Gallant or a Clockwork. If it’s even more rare creatures you seek, you’…

The Thursday Find - Fowlst

Oh look. It's Thursday. The fourth day of the working week. There are probably other facts about Thursday that I could regale you with, but since this is AppSpy and not DayOfTheWeekSpy you probably won't be that interested. Instead let's do a Thursday Find. After all, that's the sort of thing we like to do on a Thursday. And this week we've got a pretty impressive little gem for you. Honestly, I had trouble choosing what to suggest you should play. Thankfully though, a pun showed me the way. Anyhow, as usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to swoop over to the App Store and download it. And if you think something else deserved to get the prestigious accolade this wee…

The Monday Musing - What does E3 mean for mobile gaming?

The Monday Musing - What does E3 mean for mobile gaming?

Well it's that time of the year again. The good and the great and the average of the gaming industry have gathered in Los Angeles to paste giant billboards on the side of buildings and get the hype trains started for the latest AAA releases. But here at AppSpy we're far more concerned with the mobile side of things. And that got the cogs in my brain whirring round something rotten. It made me wonder whether mobile gamers should even be that bothered about what's going on at E3? So I decided to write a piece of content about it. After all, content makes the world go round. Or at least I assume it does. It could be something to do with science, but I tend not to bother myself with such unimp…

4 more reasons to indulge in Shadowblood’s Dark Fantasy RPG experience

If the sheer technical prowess of UTPlus Interactive’s mobile action RPG wasn’t enough to draw you into the world of Narr the first time around, those that like a little more depth with regards to their hacking, slashing, and near-endless looting can rest comfortably knowing that Shadowblood isn’t just a pretty face. Renowned amongst fans for its unique approach to control optimisation, the game lets you traverse lands and destroy dragons in a totally tailorable manner unseen in most ARPGs. But this only scratches the surface of the Shadowblood experience. So, to make things slightly clearer, we’ve highlighted some other reasons why players might be interested in a…
