Fight for the throne in Clash of Kings: The West

Preferred By AppSpy Staff, 7 months ago
Fight for the throne in Clash of Kings: The West

If you loved Clash of Kings, you’ll find plenty to love about Clash of Kings: The West. The new version is tailor made by Chinese company Elex Tech to appeal to players in Europe and the US, and they’ve managed to iron out some of the problems in the original. There isn’t a huge difference in terms of gameplay. You’re still vying to be ruler of an empire, building cities and forging alliances with fellow gamers. But this Western land is a little more forgiving than its predecessor. If your city’s castle is destroyed, the King will kindly send re-enforcements. If your defenses take a real blow, you’ll get a gift of extra resources to get your city up and…

The 6 best gamebooks on mobile - you HAVE to play these

The 6 best gamebooks on mobile - you HAVE to play these

Mobile gaming is an incredibly diverse space. You've got everything from The Walking Dead to Candy Crush. Critical Ops to Angry Birds. iPhone to Nvidia Shield (lol). But there's one genre that often goes unappreciated. Overlooked. Disregarded. (I'm going to stop listing things in threes now.) Oh, that genre is the gamebook. Gamebooks are often ignored because people think they're boring, or they think books are a pastime from a bygone age, or because- No, Oscar! Don't list another item for comic effect! Basically what I'm trying to say is that gamebooks might not be the biggest genre in the world, but they are home to some of the most engrossing experiences out there. So let's take a loo…

Rob a bank and speed away from the cops in Drifty Chase

Drifty Chase is pretty cool. It's simple - you just rob the bank, speed away, and try not to crash round corners - but escaping from the police is fun, and reminds me of my childhood. Maybe. Check out the video to see more!…

The 5 best memes that got turned into ridiculous games

The 5 best memes that got turned into ridiculous games

There's something about memes that are so… young. And I don't mean that they've only existed for a few years. I mean they represent exactly what it means to be a young person in the year 2016: they're fleeting, not funny, and often involve exhibiting one's… delicates. Or drugs. Those too. Memes also, on occasion, get transformed into another medium. Since playing video games are the second most millennial activity - after creating memes themselves, of course - we thought we'd run down five memes that got turned into great games. Ish. 5. Bud Farm: Grass Roots You can already tell what this is, can't you? Yes, it's a weed farming sim. What a world we live in. You can bake…

EVERY Telltale game, ranked

EVERY Telltale game, ranked

Good news everyone! Batman - The Telltale Series is finally out on iOS! Our sister site Pocket Gamer has got a lovely review of the first episode up right now, but what of Telltale's other mobile efforts? The Californian developer has, well, developed a knack and reputation for making episodic, story driven 'interactive experiences'. But which of them are hot, and which are not? The Walking Dead, or dead man walking? Minecraft: Story Mode, or Minecraft: Story NOPE? Game of Thrones or Game of NO? I'll stop now. Here are the seven Telltale games on the App Store, listed from worst to best (not including the old ones like Jurassic Park and Sam & Max, because, like, they're well rubbish m…

Master the Spitfire in Gunship Battle: Second War

South Korean publisher Joycity has followed on from its successful mobile action game Gunship Battle: Helicopter 3D with a sequel sure to please flight simulator fans. Gunship Battle: Second War puts you in the cockpit of 20 faithfully recreated World War 2 gunships including the Spitfire, Warhawk and Saetta. It’s up to you to take to the skies and rain down hell on the enemy, becoming an ace pilot in the post-war 50s. As with the first Gunship Battle, the controls are gyroscopic, freeing your thumbs up to control the camera and the weaponry. As you complete each of the 30 missions, you win gold to add to your war chest, allowing you to upgrade your favourite flying machine. Once yo…

Primordia iPad Review

Primordia iPad Review

By Harry Slater Right, let's get this out of the way as early as possible. Primordia is gorgeous. It's a beautiful mix of design and chunky pixels and it fills my heart with the sort of joy that's usually reserved for a nice sandwich. But the game has the chops to back up its aesthetic swagger. It's a point-and-click adventure with a solid logical heart, a rich stream of humour running through it, and a story that pushes you to find out what happens next. And despite its deep future…

The 5 best AR games on mobile

The 5 best AR games on mobile

Before a certain collect 'em up launched this summer, augmented reality had kind of died a death. Sure, the 3DS came with those little cards, and you played with them for 10 minutes when you first opened the box, but they soon got confined to that drawer in your bedroom with the football pump and the Action Man your auntie got you for your 15th birthday. 15, mind. What was she thinking? Since then, you've barely even given AR a thought. You scoffed at Microsoft's futile attempt to revive the technology when it revealed the Hololens. Then Pokemon GO came along. Pokemon GO showed the world what AR could do. If used correctly, AR can be one amazing gaming tool. So let's take a look at the fi…

Episodic sci-fi adventure, The Uncertain, comes to life on NVIDIA SHIELD

The latest addition to NVIDIA SHIELD’s gaming collection is Episode 1 of The Uncertain, a brand new 3D adventure from ComonGames, a Moscow-based development studio out to prove that indies can deliver high-end AAA gaming experiences. The Uncertain is set in a world where humans have actually done it: they've wiped themselves out with one war too many, and now the planet is ruled by the robots that used to serve them. It is, it seems, a perfect world—one that's governed by logic, not emotion, and where concepts like morality and common sense are a thing of the past. You just know that there's going to be something rotten beneath the surface, right? In this first episode, The L…

Why you NEED to play Pokemon Sun and Moon

Why you NEED to play Pokemon Sun and Moon

I was going to write something controversial about Pokemon. How another new pair of games, with another new region and more new characters, might be overkill. How ideas are starting to dry up, how the repeating loop and same adventure every time is becoming tired. How Pokemon has lost its edge, how the designs are stupid, and how - after Pokemon GO was such a hit - maybe the mainline games should hang up their Poke Balls for good. The truth, however, is that Game Freak and The Pokemon Company are only just getting started. Pokemon has never been so exciting. Pokemon is improving with every game The DS era was not kind to the series. Pokemon's art style struggled with the transition o…
