Our pick of the top iPhone and iPad game of the week - Tacticool

Every Thursday here at AppSpy we like to make sure that you know what the most exciting game that's come out over the past seven days. And today is no different. This week's game of the week is the awesome Tacticool, a top-down multiplayer shooter that's just landed on the App Store. The game sees you taking control of a soldier, teaming up with friends or strangers, and taking on another team in fast-paced military shooting action. And while that blasting core is solid, it's the other little layers that Tacticool puts down that make this such an interesting prospect. For one thing there are vehicles you can jump in. Grab a friend and they can man the gun on the back of a truck while you d…

Rocket Royale is a new take on battle royale, out now on iOS and Android

Since PUBG and Fortnite parachuted onto mobile last year, there has been an influx of battle royale titles onto the app stores but not all of them have been second-rate clones. Rocket Royale attempts to bring something new to the genre with its focus on crafting. Developed by GameSpire, the game puts its own twist on PvP by tasking players with escaping from an island, rather than emerging as the last one standing on it. A DIY rocketship is your ticket home, and you must build it by harvesting resources from fallen meteors and recycling debris from environmental destruction. Virtually everything in Rocket Royale can be blown up and repurposed and players can also use these raw materials to…

What a Netflix-style streaming service might mean for mobile gaming

The big news in the mobile gaming world this week surrounds rumours that Apple might be interested in creating a Netflix-for-gaming style subscription service on the App Store. It's certainly an interesting idea, and if there's any store that's position to deliver on such a scheme, it feels like it could be the App Store. There have been plenty of attempts to make streaming games more mainstream - most of the major consoles have some form of streaming option, and then there was OnLive, and the other services that have tried to capitalise on the desire for speedily delivered digital entertainment. But mobile gaming feels like it's already dealt with a lot of the problems that are inherent i…

Everything you need to know about Angry Birds Dream Blast for mobile

Angry Birds Dream Blast is the latest game starring the furious avians to make it to mobile. It's a bit different from what's come before though, so we thought it'd be a good idea to break down exactly what it is, and exactly what it isn't. That's where this story comes in. We've played the game, we're pretty smart, and we want to share our findings with you, the good readers of AppSpy. If you've got your own questions about the game don't hesitate to drop them in the comments section at the bottom of the article and we'll do our utmost to answer them. What sort of game is it? It's a bubble popper. You need to match coloured blobs together in order to clear them from the screen. There isn…

Anticipated MMORPG RebirthM has started its rollout in North America

RebirthM is the latest attempt to bring PC-calibre MMORPG gaming to mobile, and it’s just debuted in North America, off the back of successful launches in South America and Asia. Developed by South Korean studio Caret Games, the open-world adventure features polished 3D graphics, a vast fantasy world to explore and in-depth multiplayer online mechanics. RebirthM aims to capture the scope, scale and narrative depth of a blockbuster MMORPG, and combine it with pick-up-and-play accessibility. After choosing between the Ranger, Slayer, Berserker and Wizard classes, users will spend their time taking part in dungeon runs, battling powerful bosses and competing in PvP events. There&rsqu…

One to watch - Spirit Roots is coming to iOS next week

When Friday rolls around we like to stop thinking about the past and start looking to the future. No, we're not talking about all the lovely things we're going to do over the weekend (and trust us, they're going to be lovely), we're talking about the games you're going to be playing next week. Or more specifically, our pick of the best of them. This week we've chosen Spirit Roots. It's an action platformer that looks like it's going to blend together two of our favourite things - the past and the present. There's a retro vibe to the game, but it's counterpointed by some smart mobile ideas that make the game feel fresher than it has any right to be. For one thing it looks lovely, and for…

Our pick of the top iPhone and iPad game of the week - Alien: Blackout

Every week here at AppSpy we like to pick one game that's come out over the past seven days that we think you should be playing. And that's exactly what we're doing here - telling you that if you're only going to play one game this week you should probably make it Alien: Blackout. The game is set in the same universe as all of the other Alien games, and sees you playing Ripley's daughter. This time you're trapped on a terrifying space station that's been overrun by the awful xenomorphs. You need to guide a team through the corridors and keep them safe. It's sort of like Five Nights at Freddy's, but instead of horrifying animatronic animals, sleak extraterrestrial killing machines are the o…

Intergalactic epic Rogue Universe flies toward a global release

The choice between playing as a space pirate or an intergalactic warlord might be one of the toughest decisions a video game could ask you to make. But that’s exactly the question Rogue Universe will pose to players when it launches onto Google Play and the App Store during the first half of 2019. At its core, Rogue Universe is a grand strategy MMO that takes its aesthetic from the world of comic books. Building the ultimate fleet might be what you’ll spend most of your time doing, but there are also rare resources to be collected, crew members to be micromanaged, and 3 powerful factions to work with or against. Incurring the wrath of the Black Flag, U.N.S., or Zurich Bank ce…

Quirky town management sim QubeTown is now available worldwide

Mobile city builder QubeTown is now available for iOS and Android worldwide following a soft launch in select countries late last year. This new offering from Webzen and developer ARUMGAMES puts a fantasy twist on the town management sim. Not only are players tasked with constructing buildings, harvesting crops and trading with other guilds, they also must protect their citizens from troll attacks. QubeTown sports quirky, Minecraft-style visuals and its townsfolk share their settlements with a variety of animal companions, including elephants, pandas and dragons. The action even goes beyond the city limits as players get to lead their citizens on dungeon runs, during which they will encoun…

One to watch - Alien: Blackout is coming out for iPhone and iPad next week

Next week we're going to see one of the biggest mobile games of the year coming out for iPhone and iPad. If you've not heard about it, Alien: Blackout is a sort-of-sequel to the console and PC horror survival game Alien: Isolation. It sees you reprising the role of Ripley's daughter, who's trying yet again to survive the unwanted attentions of an alien killing machine. The game is premium, and it's split up into seven different chapters. It's made by D3 GO!, a developer that's also worked on the Puzzle Quest series of games. Blackout looks like it's going to be a strategic take on the Five Nights at Freddy's template, with you controlling doors and security cameras to keep a rescue crew saf…

Our pick of the top iPhone and iPad game of the week - Forged Fantasy

Every week here at AppSpy we like to choose one game that we think stands head and shoulders above all the others that have come out over the past seven days. Sometimes it's difficult to pick just one, since there are so many awesome games regularly coming out on the App Store. Not so this week - this week Forged Fantasy was always going to be the winner. The game is a super polished, cinematic action RPG that sees you building up a team of heroes. There are magic using nymphs, sword wielding warriors, bow-blasting samurai, giant rock monsters, and more. It's up to you to train them up, smash down the bad guys, and grab the loot. Forged Fantasy is a midcore game through and through though.…

The top 3 best ARPGs for iPhone and iPad

ARPGs, or action role-playing games, seem to be pretty omnipresent on other gaming platforms. Not so on mobile, thanks to the limited control systems and short-play times that the platform offers. But there are some really great examples of the genre on the App Store, you just need to know where to look. And that's where this list comes in. We've scoured iTunes to discover what we think are the finest ARPG experiences that you can currently have on mobile. There's something for everyone here, whether you're after a more old-fashioned game, one with a bewitching story, or a game that's going to delight in killing you over and over. Obviously this is a pretty short list, so there's a chance…

Forged Fantasy is looking set to be one of the most interesting midcore ARPGs that we've seen on the App Store.

By the same token, if you've got some questions you want answering, we're in a good position to answer them, so make sure you chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

One to watch - Galaxy Stack is out for iPhone and iPad next week

There aren't that many publishers working in the mobile gaming industry that we respect more than Crescent Moon Games. Here's a studio working with some of the most interesting talent going, that's always releasing really good new games. And next week could see another one of those, with the release of Galaxy Stack. It's a game that mixes together two of the most popular genres on the App Store - the shooter, and the stacker. You're not just blasting alien invaders out of the sky in order to win, you need to make giant piles of their corpses too - just in case they weren't clear after you'd shot them down who was in charge around here. Intriguingly this one is a premium game - it's going…
