The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – November 10th

Oh thank whoever you like to thank for things, it’s the end of the week. We can all curl up for two days and not have to face the horrors of being a grown up or having to put trousers on. What a delight. What a fine gift from our capitalist overlords.

But before we slink away to the safety and comfort of our respective blanket forts, there’s time for one more chunk of content. And as it’s Friday that means that it’s time to round up the best games that have landed on the App Store this week.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if there’s anything you think I’ve missed, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comments all the way down at the bottom of the article.


A wonderfully evocative adventure. It looks gorgeous, presented in slick black and white, and it plays brilliantly. Each level is essentially a puzzle to figure out. There’s an intriguing story here as well, and it’s well worth sticking with the game all the way to the end.

Kahuna – £1.99 / $ 1.99

A strategy game that’s all about old Polynesian gods. Use cards to build bridges, capture islands, and try and take control of the majority of the map. It’s tense, it’s slightly bonkers, and it’s more exciting than a lot of action games out there.

Sine Mora – £4.99 / $ 4.99

One of the slickest shooters on the App Store. Massive…

The 5 best games on sale on iPad and iPhone right now – January 10th

It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for our look at the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. It’s been a bit of a slow week for price cuts, but we’ve dug deep and discovered some gems.

And let’s be honest here, this is the time of year when we all go a bit crazy for a deal. Mainly because we don’t have any money, we’re pretty depressed, and we’re desperate for anything to distract us from the crushing loneliness.

But don’t you worry, AppSpy is here to help. Not with the crushing loneliness unfortunately, but with the not having to spend very much money to look at shiny things. Sorry. Here’s the list.

Lifeline: Whiteout

One of the most interesting series on the App Store. Essentially you’re talking a stranger through a terrible situation. In this case they’re lost in an icy wilderness. Which is sort of fitting.

The game is played through notifications, and unfurls itself at its own pace. If you like text-based adventures and a bit of innovation then it’s definitely worth grabbing this while it’s free.

Blitz Breaker

A super tough retro platformer that fits snugly into the niche that the likes of Nitrome has been carving out for itself. It’s hard, it’s cute, and it wanders along in bite-siz…
