Best mobiles games of the year so far: The Gardens Between

I reckon, by now, I’ve probably offered up a varied enough selection of GOTY candidates to justify throwing in another premium, story-based title. I’ve got a racer, a runner, a couple of roguelikes, another runner, two platformers, and some that don’t fit quite as tidily into any of the above. The Gardens Between The Gardens Between tells the story of two kids who escape the mundanity of their suburban setting to head out on an adventure through their own memories. It sounds almost too painfully twee on paper, but part of the appeal here is that very precarious balancing act. The player takes on the role of a nameless, omnipresent being floating above and guiding the two…

Best mobile games of the year so far: Ordia

Ordia, the ninth pick in our rundown of the best games of the year so far, is a single-finger platformer from developer Loju. It’s also the newest game to be featured here, having only just released earlier this month. Ordia As a one-eyed ball of goo, you’ll start out by launching yourself from the bubbling primordial ooze to the endless caverns above. The goal is to continue working your way forever upwards, hopping between handpoint nodes and dodging the odd spike or hungry worm as you go. It’s all controlled with one finger in a way that’s somewhat similar to Angry Birds. It’s a system that feels simplistic at first, but, as you progress, you’ll need…

Where is West of Loathing for iOS?

Where is West of Loathing for iOS?

West of Loathing is one of maybe 5 games that I can say is consistently funny throughout the entirety of its runtime. Its writing is warm, light-hearted, and regularly chuckle-worthy. Memorable visual gags also abound in Asymmetric’s western-themed RPG epic, and its cast of goofball characters and silly locales make repeat plays impossibly inviting. All that being said, West of Loathing is currently only available on PC and Switch. An iPad version has been in the works for some time, as has an iPhone port, but news surrounding its release has long since dried up. From the very extensive amount of internet detective work I put into this, I gather that the iPad version has been ready…

Best mobile games of the year so far: The VideoKid

In what is now the 8th entry in this extended rundown of the best mobile games of the year so far, I’ve looked to the runner genre and selected a great little 80s throwback called The VideoKid. The VideoKid This one is perhaps best described as a smart play on the NES classic, Paperboy. And while its boxy characters and environments might not be overly reminiscent of the era, the stellar audio work and garish colours positively scream retro fun. It also helps that it’s jam-packed with a silly amount of goofy references, from Back to the Future to ThunderCats. The tricky skateboarding gameplay sees you switching lanes to avoid incoming obstacles, snapping up coins, and occasion…

I think I speak for everyone when I let out a massive "ahhhhhh" and get ready to kick my feet up as the weekend peers in. But, we can't get too comfortable just yet, oh no.

I know I've been writing this round-up up on a Friday, but I figured there's no harm in doing it a day early. Why? James has been busy at work creating more fantastic content for you over on AppSpy's YouTube channel and I just can't wait to share it with you.

The best silly sports mobile games to play with one hand

It's sunny, there's a slight bite to the air now summer's coming to an end, and we're half-way through the week. Why is that a big deal? Well, it's not really, but it can often feel like the day's going a little slower than usual. You know what would be a pretty good remedy to such a time? Silly sports games, of course. What? You've never played any silly sports games? You're probably not alone. Whatever mood you in, whatever kind of day you're having, these mobile titles take the idea of playing a sport and gives it a bit of a jiggle. Management sims offer up more of a logical, straight-forward challenge if you're a hardcore sports fan. But, for me I often think about the lighter side &nd…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Trigger

Trigger is a frantic, colorful, same-screen multiplayer game that adds the physics-based wackiness of Wrestle Jump and similar games to top-down shooter action. A button in the corner of the screen lets players control their tiny tank. simultaneously rotating your vehicle and firing a projectile. This simple control scheme imbues the hectic game with a skillful element that priortizes positioning and timing, as you evade enemy shots and plan out your movements.

Break apart increasingly complex jigsaw grids in relaxing puzzler Unpuzzle

Reminiscent of games like Hook and the recent Up Left Out, Unpuzzle takes the block-sliding puzzler and challenges you to unmake each mess of blocks while managing a number of different mechanics. Unpuzzle starts simply, asking you only to slingshot blocks off the main jigsaw structure. The initial rules means you can’t release blocks if their path is...blocked or if they‘re connected to more than one piece. But Unpuzzle quickily begins introducing new mechanics that build upon that early ruleset. Soon you’re dealing with blocks that require a certain amount of pieces to be removed before you can interact with them, blocks that can only slide in certain directions, bloc…

Galak-Z Variant Mobile brings the frenetic space shooter to iOS and Android

Originally released in 2015 for PC and PS4, Galak-Z Variant Mobile, as the name suggests, is a modified port designed to work for touchscreens, letting mobile gamers enjoy Galak-Z's evasive combat and relentless enemies, both mechanical and alien. Perhaps the most critical aspects of Galak-Z that seperates it from other hectic shoot-em-ups is its combination of stealth and transforming mech actions. Enemy ships have line of sight and your ship makes different amounts of noise based on movement, so you can flank enemies and ambush them from behind for extra damage or just hide to avoid a particularly tough foe you can't defeat yet. Or you could transform into your mech form to deflec…
