Take a trip through time in The House of Da Vinci, available now on iOS

Fans of all things mind-bending and mysterious will be able to get their fix from today, as The House of Da Vinci graces smartphone screens tasking players to escape and seek the truth. Available now for iOS devices, the kickstarted game from developer Blue Brain Games provides a unique hands-on 3D puzzle experience which tales its inspiration from The Room series.

So what’s the story? You’re placed in the role of the great Leonardo’s da Vinci’s apprentice and it’s up to you to find out what’s behind his strange disappearance. Was he killed by the church? Did some of his machines transport him into another time? Is he hiding under the bed? The only way to be sure is by solving a series of head-scratching puzzles that will see you ferreting out hidden artefacts and unpicking complex mechanisms, while conquering a host of other obstacles that strive to be challenging as well as faithfully authentic to the time.

One of the big motivations for Blue Brain Games when developing The House of Da Vinci, was to provide all that play the puzzle adventurer a true sense of authenticity. The game’s music, architecture, and mood all take inspiration from actual da Vinci concepts, manuscripts and inventions, firmly placing players within the world of 16th century Italy.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – June 21st

Well Wednesday has really snuck up on us this week hasn’t it? Before you know it it’ll be Thursday. Then shortly after that it’ll be Friday. Then we get two days of laying down before the whole awful carousel of life starts again. Yay.

Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store this week. And I’ll have you know that there are some proper gems in the offing this time round. Not like last week. Everyone glower at last week.

As per ever you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you spot anything on sale that you think our lovely readers deserve to hear more about, you can do so in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Kingdom: New Lands – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A weird and wonderful semi-idler that sees you riding a horse around your kingdom to distribute coins to your subjects. It sounds horribly simple, but in practice there’s an incredible amount of depth here. Oh, and it looks absolutely stunning. Definitely worth picking up if you haven’t experienced it already.

The Tuesday Best of – Metroidvanias for iPhone and iPad

Forma.8 came out last week. It’s a clever twist on the metroidvania formula that sees you floating around gorgeous levels acquiring new skills along the way. It’s slick and it’s ever so slightly lovely.

But it got me thinking about classic metroidvania games you could play on your iPhone. And that in turn set the content alarms screaming in my mind. Plus it’s Tuesday, the day when we quite often round up three of the best games in a specific genre.

Everything has fallen nicely into place. So here are the three best metroidvania games you can get on the App Store. Click on the emboldened names below to download them. And if you think I’ve missed anything, chuck your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom.


A wonderfully difficult game with an art style that wouldn’t look out of place on a ZX Spectrum. You’re exploring the often bizarre innards of a spaceship, trying to find your friends as you do. It’s super tough, and sees you manipulating gravity rather than jumping. If you’ve not played it before, mobile is as good a place as any to have a crack at it.

The Monday Musing – It’s too hot, here are some hot games

It’s too hot. Honestly, my brain isn’t working. I live in a greenhouse. All I can think about is how hot it is. The answer to that is it is very hot. Hot hot hot. There is heat everywhere and I am incapable of escaping it.

This may well be why I’ve gone ahead and written a piece of content about the best hot games on the App Store. Sure, it might not make much sense, but if you expected anything I did in this heat to make sense then you just don’t know me at all.

Click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you can think of other hot games, then put them in the hot comments so we can have a hot debate. It really is very hot.

Fire Emblem Heroes

It’s got fire in its name. Fire is the hottest thing in the world. Apart from my flat. My flat is hotter than fire. This is a smart casual RPG with a lick of lovely Nintendo polish. Although the polish is probably melting in the heat.

Galaxy on Fire: Manticore

It probably is hot enough right now that the entire galaxy could set on fire. It would not surprise me. That would make the title of this deep space shooter strangely prescie…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – June 14th

Oh look it’s Wednesday again. That means it’s time to have a look at the best games that are for sale on the App Store right now. To be honest it’s a bit of a rubbish week for sales, but I’ve picked five games that are worth a look.

It might make more sense to save your money for something else, unless you’re really desperate to try out one of the games on offer here.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names to download the various interactive entertainment experiences. And if you’ve spotted something you think we should have included feel free to let people know in the comments below.

Definitely the diamond in the rough this week. If you’ve not played this one before, it’s all about shuffling comic panels to move a story forwards. It’s a clever mix of an adventure and a puzzler and it’s an absolute steal for free.
