AppSpy's Best Games of 2014 - Danny's Top 5

Just before 2015 hits, I'd like to share my top five iOS games of the year with y'all. It's perhaps no surprise that every entry on my list went down a storm when they were streamed on our Twitch channel. Maybe you won a code for one of these from us, or perhaps you've even played one with us - in any case these are all worth blowing all the iTunes credit you receive this Kwanzaa. Dargon Dragon Quest VIII Dragon Quest VIII was one of my favourite PlayStation 2 games, and this is a fantastic, albeit slightly chopped up, port. Yes it's vertically oriented, yes the voice tracks and some music has been cut, but the game itself is still very solid and rammed full of enough content to keep y…

With Glen's top picks and Peter's favourite games out of the way, it's time to share my prime gaming slices of 2014. These are the games which, for a variety of reason, I couldn't put down over the past 12 months. Add them all to your wishlist, and give me a huge kiss of slobbering gratitude when you next see me. FTL For me, few games have ever truly captured the spirit of space travel better than FTL. The isolation, the claustraphobia - the infinite dark filled peppered with glimmering wonders and invisible threats. Yet somehow, despite it's lo-fi 2D visuals and complete lack of explosive cutscenes and shots of the Millenium Falcon doing barrel rolls, FTL totally nails space. Th…

I'm going to lead in to my top 5 list with some incredibly unsettling news - I was without a mobile device between June - November 2014. Unfortunately, my Nexus 7 2013 popped its clogs a little earlier than expected and the morale to the story is that I should have got warranty. Always. Get. Warranty. Without further ado, here's my Top 5 finest mobile games of the year (that I got a chance to play). Rival Knights I'm not even going to lie, Rival Knights would have featured in my list regardless. Why? Because it's the very perfect example of a 2014 mobile game - and it allows me to finally live out my dream of being Heath Ledger in that movie about knights with big sticks. It looks fa…

It's the very end of December, and at this time of year it's customary for video game websites to pick out their favourites titles of the previous year. We'll be popping up our “official” collective top 5 on the 1st of January 2015, but as we build up to that, the AppSpy team is all going to take a little time to run you through its personal favourites. First up, my turn. Skylanders Trap Team The best thing about Skylanders Trap Team isn't the compulsively collectible toys, nor is it the rock solid mix of platforming and combat. It's not even the dedicated controller, superb voice acting, or top notch visuals.The best thing about Skylanders Trap Team is that it sets out to…
