The Tuesday Best of – Multiplayer shooters for iPhone and iPad

Modern Combat Versus has just soft launched in Australia and New Zealand. If you’ve not heard of it it’s Gameloft’s latest version of its shooty bang bang series, this time with a focus on multiplayer. Shoot men, shoot some more men, win points and make your shooty stuff better. You know the drill, soldier.

So now seemed like a pretty good time to round up the three best multiplayer shooters that are available world wide on the App Store right now. Basically we’re taking a moment to check out the competition.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to be whisked away to a safe and special place where you can download it. And if you think we’ve missed anything out – hard to believe I know – then chuck your own suggestions in the comments below the content.

Guns of Boom

It might have a terrible name, but right now this is the shooter to beat on the App Store. It’s super slick, super fast, and an incredible amount of fun to play. Team-based blasting with some neat ideas and a decent free to play system.

Sure it’s closer to the likes of Team Fortress 2 than the CoD-aping Modern Combat, but don’t let that put you off. This is one of the finest multiplayer experiences you can have on that little computer in your pocket.

Monument Valley 2

I could only really lead with this one. It’s a staggering game, full of warmth and sadness and amazing ideas. It builds on the work of its predecessor with skill and style, and you should definitely be playing it right now.

Mr. Mustachio 2

A tough maths puzzler that isn’t going to be everyone’s tastes. It’s pretty darn difficult, but if you’re got a flare for numbers its arcade pace and lovely graphics are likely to sn…

Hi Wednesday, how’s it going? Oh, really? That’s interesting. Anyway, since I don’t really care and I’m talking to a day, how about we get on with creating some excellent content for the fine readers of App Spy? Sounds like a plan? Cool.

Every Wednesday we round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Because we’re fearsome creatures of habit here. Change will be the death of us.

After the End: Forsaken Destiny – £1.99 / $ 1.99

A gorgeous looking platforming adventure with a load of really good ideas. It mixes things together from a bunch of different sources, but it does it with heart and aplomb. Oh, and there’s a cool cape thrown into the mix as well.

Evergrow – 99p / 99c

A clever absorby shooter that’s all about absorbing things. And not exploding. It’s better than I just made it sound though. If you like your arcade games with a bit more meat on their bones then it’s definitely worth checking out

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – June 1st

Happy Friday. As everyone around here knows, Friday is the day of the week when we take stock, look at the mess we’ve made of the week, and try and make some sense of it. Or, in other words, we look at the five best games that came out on the App Store this week.

It’s not been a vintage seven days, to be honest, but after some of the gems we’ve had in the last few months that’s only to be expected. Still, there are some pretty solid entries to the list this week, and that’s not something to sniff at.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you think we’ve missed anything out, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comment section all the way down at the bottom of the article.

Bouncy Hoops

A slick basketball game that’s simple to pick up and pretty darn difficult to put down. It’s basically flappy balls, but with points for scoring baskets instead of making it through gaps in pipes. Oh, and it’s a lot better than I just made it sound.

Yankai’s Peak

A puzzler that really loves pyramids. It’s all about pushing shapes around 130 different levels, solving the challenges that are thrown in y…

The Tuesday Best of – Telltale Games for iPhone and iPad

Well it’s Tuesday, so I thought we should have a look at some games. Mobile games. Because, y’know, this is AppSpy, and that’s basically what we’re here for.

And since The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is coming to an end soon, I thought it was high time to look at the three best series that Telltale has released on mobile so far.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think we’ve missed any, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comments below.

Tales From the Borderlands


It was a bit of a departure for Telltale this one, but in the end it was well worth your time. Set in the Borderlands universe, it’s one of the slickest releases from TT yet, blending humour, action, and gorgeous graphics to create something really rather special.

The Walking Dead

The original and, some might say, the best. Sure Telltale had released some other games before this one, but it was The Walking Dead that really put it on the map. Chock full of difficult decisions and painted in glorious shades of grey, this was the game that really kickstarted…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – May 31st

It might feel like it’s Tuesday, but I’ve got some news for you. It’s actually Wednesday. Yeah, I was shocked when I worked that out too. Never mind though, it means it’s time for a round-up of the best games on sale on the App Store right now.

And there are some real gems that have had their prices slashed this week. So much so that I actually had difficulty deciding which ones to add to the list. I mean, not a lot of difficulty, but still, have some sympathy yeah?

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you’ve spotted a sale you think we should have mentioned, feel free to add it in the comments down there at the bottom of the article.

Circa Infinity – 99p / 99c

A challenging platformer with a pretty special twist. That twist is its circular. You’re bouncing around the edges of circles, dodging enemies and trying to stay alive. It’s twitchy, it has a look all of its own, and you should definitely play it.

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide – 99p / 99c


It’s chess. But it’s chess with a grim dark future twist. Pla…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – May 26th

It’s the end of the week, and if, like me, you’re melting, you might be looking for a game to play in the fridge over the weekend to avoid the sun.

But what game should you get? What are the tippest toppest games that have hit the App Store this week? Oh I dunno, it’s probably the five I’m about to tell you about in this sexy hunk of gorgeous content.

Jaipur

A fast-paced and engaging card game that’s all about trading. No! Wait! Come back, it’s actually really good. There’s very little drudgery here, just a smart game of throwing down cards and making as much money as you can.

Pokemon Magikarp Jump

Sure, it’s no Pokemon GO, but as games about leaping fish go it’s pretty darn solid. Silly in all the right ways, it doesn’t ask much of you, but you’ll find yourself engrossed in its comings and goings all the same.

Guns of Boom


A super slick super shooty super shooter. Honestly, this is one of the best multiplayer FPS games to have hit the App Store in recent memory. It’s super addictive. I do have some bad news for you though, Pocket Gamer editor Glen Fox is the best at it. Like seriously, no one can beat him.

A crazed turret shooter that offers one of the most fra…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – May 12th

Another Friday has rolled in, bringing with it the salty taste of the weekend. It’s so close, it’s almost here. Just a little bit longer and then we’ll all be safe for two days. How good does that sound?

Well every Friday here at AppSpy we like to give you a rundown of the five best mobile games that have hit the App Store this week. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do right now. We’re traditionalists, sue us.

As per usual you can click on the emboldened name of a game below to download it from the App Store. And make sure you head back next week to pick up even more excellent mobile gaming related content. Or I’ll cry.

To the Moon

A tweaked port of a fantastic RPG. Its mechanics might be a bit on the traditional side, but it’s worth checking out for the story and the excellent music. Plus it’s exactly the sort of game we want to see more of on the App Store.

Artificial Superintelligence

A new implementation of the Tinder-style mechanic we first saw in Reigns. This one is an intriguing sci-fi adventure though. It looks lovely, and it’s interesting to see a new genre sort of coming to life before your very eyes.

Run-A-Whale

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…
