The Samsung Galaxy S8 - What's it going to be like for gamers

Well, Samsung went right ahead and announced the Galaxy S8 last night. It's the newest in the South Korean firm's range of smartphones, and it's got a few new features that gamers are definitely going to be interested in. And a few potential problems too. Now I know we usually just cover iOS on AppSpy, but I thought that this well well worth a look all the same. After all, as the saying goes, know your enemy. Therefore I have created some list-based content for your eyes. We're also going to have a ponder about whether the phone might replace your trusty iPhone as your go-to gaming device. So, without further me typing out an intro, here's everything that gamers need to know about the Sams…

The Thursday Find - Dodge Blast

This week's Thursday Find is a game that, at first glance at least, might look a little simple. I mean, scratch away the surface and you'll find that the game is, in fact, pretty darn simple.

Well you're going to have to read the rest of the article to find out, aren't you? As ever, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - March 29th

Oh Wednesday, where have you been all my life? In exactly the same place in the middle of the week? Well I guess that makes a lot of sense if you stop and think about it. Anyway, Wednesday at AppSpy means a round-up of the very best games that are on sale on the App Store right this second. And let me tell you it was a bit of a chore digging up some of these beauties. Still, I think we've ended up with a pretty darn solid list. As per ever, click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them.

Destiny 2 for iPhone and iPad won't happen, but you could play these games instead

Well. Wellity wellity well. Bungie has gone and announced Destiny 2. I mean, sort of, it's shown a picture with the word Destiny and a big number 2, which could mean a lot of things. But I'm gonna go ahead and say Destiny 2 is coming to consoles this year. But console games, as we all know, are for dweebs. Mobile is where all the best experiences are at. Yup. Sure. We all definitely believe that. Move on. Nothing to see here. Which got me thinking, what games could you play on your iPad or iPhone to get some of that sweet Destiny feeling in your eyes and fingers. Since, y'know, the game is highly unlikely to ever come to mobile. So here's a list of games that might just scratch your mobil…

The Tuesday best of - If you loved Card Thief, try out these other Tiny Touch Tales games

Oh look, it's Tuesday. At least I think it's Tuesday, I'm having a hard time keeping track of time. Hang on, let me shout out of the window and ask a passer-by... Yup, it's Tuesday, and apparently I'm an idiot. Anyway, Tuesday is when we have a look at some of the best games on the App Store. They might be the best games in a specific genre, or the best games with a particular style. This time round they're the best games from a developer. And that developer is Tiny Touch Tales. Its latest game, Card Thief, just came out on the App Store, and it's really, really good. So I thought we'd have a look at three other games from the dev that you should definitely play. As ever, click on the e…

The Monday Musing - The best console tie-in games for iPhone and iPad

Well The Elder Scrolls: Legends came out last week. It's a card game set in the super famous Western RPG universe. There are cards, monsters, and it's all wrapped up with some pleasing strategy that reveals itself as you play. But that got me thinking about big console games that have made the transition to mobile. Not ports, but games that have taken some part of their experience and transcribed that onto touchscreen. So in today's Monday Musing that's what we're going to have a look at. You can click on the emboldened names of the games to download them. And if you can think of any more, stick them in the comments all the way down there. Deus Ex GO - £4.99 / $4.99 To be honest…

So the new Justice League trailer came out. It looks, er, well, this is a mobile gaming site, not a movie trailer review site, so let's just leave it at that for now, shall we? But if you're interested in DC's superheroes and you fancy playing some games on your iPhone or iPad that feature them in order to scratch that Justice League itch, well I've gone right ahead and created a list just for you. As ever you can click on the emboldened name of the games in order to be whisked away to the App Store where you can download them.

Another week rolls to its mandated end. The time for work is almost over, the time for hoping work doesn't start again is about to begin.

Everything you need to know about Power Rangers: Legacy Wars for iPhone, iPad, and Android

Well, there's a Power Rangers reboot hitting the cinema soon. Because of course there is. I mean, everyone went to see the Transformers films, and quite frankly they were wobbly-camera dreck of the highest order. But hey, who am I to judge? All I know about is mobile games.

The Thursday Find - Retro Soccer

I have something of a soft spot for silly football. I think it stems from the fact that I'm not very good at sensible football. And when people take things seriously it genuinely upsets me and makes me want to lay down on the floor and cry. So this week's Thursday Find shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. I mean, hopefully it's going to come as something of a surprise, because that's sort of the point. Anyway, if you like what you read and you want to download the game, you can click on its emboldened name below and do just that. But what game it is I hear you scream at the top of your ash blackened lungs, well it's... Retro Soccer - Free Retro Soccer is a game about kicking a ball…

Look out below! Temple Jump launches today

The floor actually is lava in this new pixelated platformer by Nexx Studio. Temple Jump hopped onto the App Store and Google Play today and it’s got enough twitchy, platforming fun to keep you hooked for quite a while. You guide a limbless blob, a “jumper”, if you will, across 12 levels of perilous traps and pitfalls. Your goal is to collect as many gems as you can, though you’ll have to watch your step around crumbling pillars, gleaming spikes, and jumping fireballs all ready to send you to a most toasty end in the lava pits beneath you. Stay out of danger by holding your thumb to the screen to charge your jumps, releasing to fall to the next platform. Along the…

Oh look, it's Thursday. You might have noticed that our round up of the best games on sale on the App Store didn't go live yesterday. That's because I was up a mountain. True story. But, I don't want to leave you short changed. I want to leave you with as much change as possible. So I'm going to do the list today instead. That's exciting, isn't it?

The best iPhone and iPad games for fans of Nextlix and Marvel's Iron Fist

Iron Fist is Marvel's latest Netflix show, and it came out last week. It's all about a kick punching expert who comes back from a monastery in some other dimension to kick and punch people and also do business. It's not as good as Daredevil, but it's alright, I guess. And if the fighting sequences in the show have got your blood all boiled up and your desire for violence is super high, well I might be able to help. No, I'm not offering you out for a scrap, I'm presenting you with a list of some of the brawlers on the App Store that might scratch your Iron Fist itch in between episodes. As per usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game to go and download it. And if you've got a…

Four indie games we'd love to see ported to iPhone and iPad

With indie games taking centre stage over the past week or so, I thought it was high time to have a look at some of the indie classics I'd like to see ported to the App Store. So here's a list of four different indie experiences that should make their way to iPhone and iPad. You might agree. You might disagree. Hell, you might even have your own ideas about which games you'd like to see. Feel free to share those thoughts in the comments section. But keep it civil, yeah?

The Tuesday best of - Colin Lane games

This week's Tuesday best of is a look back at the iOS career of Colin Lane. I say that like he's dead, but I'm pretty sure he's not, since the dev released the really rather wonderful Golf Zero (with Brad Erkkila) last week. Anyway, this is a tale of some of the finest madness that the App Store plays host too. While Golf Zero might be the zenith of Lane's mobile gaming creations, it's by no-means the only thing he's made that's worth playing. So here's a list of three other games of his you should be playing. As ever a swift click on the emboldened name of the game will allow you to download it.
