The Monday Musing - Why the indie initiative on the App Store is so important

It's a move that's been a long time coming, but last week's Indie games take over of the App Store is probably one of the most important things to happen in mobile gaming over the last couple of years. Not just because it means that we got a whole load of really excellent games in such a short space of time, but because it shows that Apple is finally starting to take gaming seriously on its platform. And that fact has been cemented by Apple adding a permanent indie games showcase to the front page of the App Store. Gaming on mobile is starting to get the recognition that it deserves. Indie 4 life Now, we all know that there have been some truly excellent indie games on the App Store over…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - March 17th

Oh what a week it's been. No, seriously, I think this might have been the best game for iPhone and iPad games in a very long time. There have been some real classics-in-waiting out this week, and that makes my job quite a lot easy. Well, sort of, because I've had to cut the list of really good games down to just five for this list. Don't worry though, I've managed it, because that's the sort of professional, content-focused writer I am. No, really, it is. You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you have to choose just one, well I'd suggest not choosing just one and getting all of them. No, seriously, they're all flippin' great. Cosmic Express - &p…

It's Saint Patrick's Day - Here are the Irish-developed iPad and iPhone games to celebrate with

It's Saint Patrick's Day. It's a time to get together with your friends and drink copious amounts of sludgey black beer while wearing silly hats. What could be better? Well I guess we could celebrate some of the Irish-developed games that you can download and play on the App Store right now. That'd probably be more interesting and culturally relevant, y'know, if you're into that sort of thing. As ever you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them.

Expect metal and bullets to fly in new action-strategy game Intruders – Robot Defense

If you like your robots a little more Terminator than ASIMO you won’t be disappointed with Mustplay Games’ new tower defence game Intruders – Robot Defense, which has just launched on iOS and Android. When alien invaders set out on a mission of conquest against mankind, it will come down to you to repel the enemy onslaught using a combination of strategic planning and a generous helping of high tech defences, including Hero Soldiers, Missile launchers, turrets, and Drones. With over 80 unique levels to battle through, the developers have been hard at work to supply plenty of content which can be experienced in 4 different game settings such as Time Attack (where you&rsq…

The Thursday Find - Ticket to Earth

Oh Thursday, you beautiful lumbering beast. So full of hope for the days that follow, so full of rage for the things that have passed before it. Or something like that, I don't know. All I know is Thursday means it's time for the Thursday Find. This week, thanks in part to the App Store indie game take-over, there have been an awful lot of really, really good games coming out. But I think this one is definitely the one you should be playing. It's called Ticket to Earth, and it's a mesmerising mix of puzzler and RPG. There are more words about it in the paragraphs below this one. Oh, and click on the game's emboldened name in a few words time and you'll be able to grab it from the App Store…

Why PlayStation Now coming to iPhone and iPad is a good, or bad, idea

Why PlayStation Now coming to iPhone and iPad is a good, or bad, idea

In an interesting development, yesterday Sony announced that it was set to add PS4 games it its PlayStation Now service. That essentially means you'll be able to play streaming current gen console games on your PC. And that's a tantalising prospect, if you ask me, because I think we're now only about two steps away from PlayStation Now turning up on mobile. And that means PS4 games on your phone or tablet. Sure you'll need a 5MB internet connection to make it all work, but with the advent of 5G networks, and super fast home broadband, what's to stop Sony making the leap and letting us mobile gamers get some of that sweet, sweet console action. But what are the arguments for and against Pl…

The best games on sale for iPad and iPhone right now - March 15th

Somehow we've already managed to make it to Wednesday. How? I've got no idea, but here we are, fists clenched in defiance at the never-ending passage of human constructed time. If only there was something to distract us from that fatal arrow. Oh, wait, what about some cheap iPhone and iPad games? That might do the trick, yeah? Especially if someone put them in an easy to consume list form, with links to the games on the App Store. Well we're in luck, because that's exactly what I've done.

Overwatch might be coming to Switch, here's why it should come to iPhone and iPad

Everyone really likes Overwatch. All of my cool friends with their games consoles tell me I should spend money on it so that I can play it, but that sounds an awful lot like effort, so it's unlikely that it's going to happen. But there are rumblings that Overwatch might be coming to the Nintendo Switch, which got me wondering - could the game come to mobile? And so here, in list form, are some reasons why it might. If you can think of your own, either for or against, then whack them in the comments and we can have a right good chat about it, like how friends do.

Here's everything you need to know about Planet of Heroes for iPhone and iPad

Every now and then here at AppSpy we like to keep you up to date with recent additions to the App Store. So today I thought I'd have a look at Planet of Heroes, a new casual-ish MOBA that landed on iPhone and iPad last week. It's a super polished free to play game with an awful lot going for it, especially if you're a fan of having a MOBA in your pocket. Is it as good as some of the other MOBAs on mobile? Well you're going to have to read on to find out, aren't you? Oh, and give a clicky click to the emboldened name of the game underneath this paragraph and you'll be abe to download it. You're welcome. Alright, let's get on with some content. Planet of Heroes - Free What is it? It's a f…

The Monday Musing - Where do you play mobile games?

It's a question that's been bugging me for a while now – where's the best place to play mobile games? It's been bugging me because it's fair to say I'm not your average consumer of mobile entertainment. I mean, it's my job – I'm basically playing them in what amounts to an office (bed). So in this week's Monday Musing I thought I'd have a good long ponder about some of the spots where people might play mobile games. Partly because there's not really much else going on, but mainly because I'm genuinely interested. Of course, if you've got a preferred place to whip out your phone and have a poke, feel free to let everyone know about it in the comments. And remember, no one's goin…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - March 10th

Oh what a week it's been. We've done some stuff, we've seen some things, and remember all of those shenanigans we got up to? Lord there were so many of them. And then we swore a solemn pact we'd never tell anyone about the specifics of them. So here we are. Anyway, it's been a 7/10 sort of a week in mobile gaming, but we've still managed to pull five thorns out of the paw of the App Store that we think you should be playing this weekend.

So now seems like the perfect time to look back at the Game of Thrones games you can get for mobile.
