Command killer crustaceans in the new update for Crab War

Command killer crustaceans in the new update for Crab War

Crab War from Appxplore gets you do something a bit different – it challenges you to unleash a swarm of crustaceans in a fight against invading reptiles. To achieve this unusual task you have to tap frantically to send your snappy soldiers across the screen - winning resources and reclaiming land with every defeated foe. That loot gleaned from combat can then be used in the Evolution Tree to evolve your crab swarms into more formidable opponents. You can also develop powerful mutations by shedding your shell (ecdysis), with over 80 crabs to evolve and 30 crab queens to add to your ranks. The newest update to Crab War adds a competitive tournament system too, as well as genetic cus…

4 iPad and iPhone games you could play instead of Pokemon Sun and Moon

Pokemon Sun and Moon is coming out soon. Lots of other sites are posting hands-on previews and all that standard hype-cycle nonsense. Not here at AppSpy though, oh my word no. I mean there are two reasons for that. First I haven’t played the stupid game, and second we’re an iOS focused site so it wouldn’t really make any sense to try and get content out of a game we don’t cover. Or would it…? If, like us, you think that the only proper gaming on the go involves playing on a device that you can make phone calls with, then this is the Pokemon Sun and Moon article for you. Because it’s about games that are a bit like Pokemon Sun and Moon that you can play…

5 mobile games that would work brilliantly in VR

VR is big business nowadays. Because apparently everyone wants to strap some goggles to their face and open themselves up the very real danger of their friends stealing all of their stuff while they’re gaming. Anyway, mobile VR is a thing as well. I’ve heard about it, I’ve used it, and damn it all I’m going to write a listy feature about it right now because I can’t think of anything else to write about. Also everyone’s talking about PlayStation VR. So that’s like a link I guess. So here are some iPad and iPhone games that I’d like to be able to play with my eyes. Or something like that. I don’t know it’s been a very long day. AG…

5 iPhone and iPad games you could play instead of Gears of War 4

I actually quite like the Gears of War franchise. Like, it’s pretty much my definition of a guilty pleasure, and one of the few things that might actually make me consider buying an Xbox One. I’m not going to, but at least I’m considering it. Anyway, this frankly spectacular preamble is to lead us into the fact that Gears of War 4 came out yesterday. Or the day before. I haven’t really been paying attention if I’m honest. Anyway you can’t play Gear of War 4 on mobile, because of reasons. But you can play some games on mobile that are a bit like Gears of War 4. Here’s a list of them. Enjoy it. Or don’t, that’s entirely your perogative.…

Games other than Pokemon GO politicians should be playing in parliament

Games other than Pokemon GO politicians should be playing in parliament

The Norwegian Prime Minister has played Pokemon GO in parliament not once, not three times, but twice. Which is pretty cool. It must be nice to have a Prime Minister that plays games and isn’t instigating overtly fascist policies. Ho hum. Anyway it got me thinking about which mobile games politicians could play when they’re supposed to be doing important but boring things like running the country. That’s not even that big of a logical leap, it just sort of made sense. So here’s a list of the ones I thought of in the time I pointed my brain in the direction of that particular problem. It’s by no means a comprehensive list, because quite frankly that would be co…

4 mobile games you could play instead of Mafia III

Mafia III has just come out on consoles. I’m only telling you this because this part of the article is an introduction to the themes we’re going to be dealing with later on. I was pretty sure you already knew that Mafia III was out on consoles, you’re smart you are. Anyway, Mafia III isn’t out on mobile. Well, there’s a free to play RPG version but I’m not counting that because, well who counts things like that? No one cool, that’s for sure. And you and me? We’re super cool. So I thought I’d make you a list of games that are a bit like Mafia III that you CAN play on your phone or tablet. Because that just seemed like a good id…

3 ways VR will take over your life

3 ways VR will take over your life

Virtual Reality dominates any and all discussion in the games industry right now. Every game seems to have a VR port or expansion on the way. And for good reason - most who've tried it think VR could be the next big step for gaming, akin to the switch from 2D to 3D in the 1990s. VR has its fair share of naysayers, of course, as does anything. There are still people who believe FIFA is better than PES, for example. Some people never learn. But while VR is impressive from a gaming perspective, and adds a new layer of immersion, it's the technology's non gaming possibilities that excite me. Could we be using an Oculus Rift to speak to our relatives on the other side of the world in 10 years'…

The 3 best Android phones available in 2016 - Does the Pixel make the cut?

Are you a fan of slightly glitchy interfaces? Love holding cheap materials in your hand? Like your devices in the explodey variety? Then you'll love Android phones! Nah, I'm kidding - Android is alright. I've got nothing against them. I've got one myself, in fact, because I can't afford an iPhone. Oh well. But if your heart's set on getting a 'Droid, or you just can't quite scrape enough together to go for an iPhone, then check out our list of the best Android phones out there today. Google Pixel Cost: £599 / £719 Where better to start than what Google hopes is the iPhone's new nemesis? The Pixel comes with iPhone grade prices, but also iPhone grade specs. It's armed wit…

4 ways Apple can HIT BACK at Google after the Pixel reveal

This week, Google finally revealed its much anticipated follow up to the Nexus: the Pixel phone. The consensus seems to be that Google has built a genuine challenger to the iPhone. I mean, of course they have - they look exactly the same! Some people, however, seem to think the Pixel is pointless. That the point of an Android phone is to be cheap, and that anyone who's spending £599 on a piece of metal to go in their pocket is going to spend it on Apple's hunk o' junk. There's definitely an argument to be had there, but we think the Pixel is gorgeous, and finally offers stiff, big money, big profile, big spec, big everything competition to the iPhone. Given all that then, how can A…

Bioware's RPGs ranked from worst to best

Do you like endless fetch quests? Love sub-par combat? Are you a horny teenager looking to love it up with a virtual vixen? Then you'll love Bioware's RPGs! Bioware RPGs have been sending fans to sleep for years, but I'm afraid I've got some sad news for all you mobile players out there - Jade Empire, Bioware's 2005 RPG originally released for the Xbox - is now on iPad. I know, I'm sorry. To celebrate (commiserate), we're going to rank the major Bioware RPG series from the past few years from worst to best. Strap yourselves in! 5. Dragon Age Listen, Dragon Age is rubbish. It's dull, trite, and nonsensical trash. I don't know about you, but I am so so bored of mages and dwarves and ye…

Google Pixel vs iPhone 7 - which is best?

After Carphone Warehouse spoiled the surprise a day early, Google finally unveiled its new Pixel phone yesterday! And guess what? It kinda looks like a huge rip off of the iPhone! Google has sold its own phones for a while now of course - just made by other companies and labelled with the Nexus brand rather than anything overtly Googlarian (that's probably a word). And Nexus has always been the benchmark for Android phones. As Android as it gets without being a walking, talking robot. Now though, Google seems to be taking its flagship phone in a new direction - on a collision course with Apple! The Pixel phone looks to imitate the iPhone in every conceivable way. So let's examine which is…
