The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – September 20th

Yes, it’s Wednesday. It’s been Wednesday for quite a while now, depending on where you are. It might not be Wednesday in some places. How does time even work? I have no idea. Go ask a grown up, we’re here to talk about games.

And on Wednesday (which is the day that today is), we talk about games that are on sale. Five of them. The best five that are currently going for cheap on the App Store. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do right now.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve got your own suggestions, feel free to toss them haphazardly into the comments section at the bottom of the article.

Scurvy Scallywags – Free

There are a lot of match-stuff puzzlers on the App Store. A good deal of them are complete garbage. This one isn’t though. It’s full of pirates and silliness, and its full name is far too long to type. The board moves, you’re trying to create the perfect sea shanty, and the whole thing is really rather wonderful.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – September 15th

It’s Friday. I’m going to go climb some mountains later, but in the meantime I suppose I’ll create some super hot content for you. That’s just the kinda guy I am. Also it’s my job, so, I guess that’s a reason as well.

Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And when I say we, I mean me. There’s no one else here. I just like to give off the illusion that I’m working in a high-stakes newsroom, instead of in a corner of my flat surrounded by empty pop bottles.

Fun. You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head off to the App Store and download them. And if you’ve seen anything you think people should be getting, feel free to stick it in the comments at the bottom of the article. Cool. Cool cool cool.

Iron Marines

A rich and incredibly well thought out RTS that takes the genre, shakes it up, and makes it fit wonderfully on mobile. Slick, full of things to do, and without the menus and fiddling that normally put people off this sort of thing.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – September 7th

Friday has arrived, and with it the blessed relief of it almost being the weekend. It’s pretty exciting isn’t it? We’ve got two days off to drink away all the terrible memories of the week. Or to go out and do things that we enjoy doing with the people that we love. Y’know, if that’s the sort of thing that you’re into or whatever.

As you’re probably aware by now, Friday is when we round up all of the good games that have come out this week on the App Store. There are some pretty shiny releases this week, so picking five was actually pretty tough. I did it though, because it’s what I do. It is what I do.

You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think anything else that should have been included on the list, then feel free to make your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. It’d be nice, you know, just to have someone to talk to.

Atomine

A slick twin stick shooter with a thick and engaging art style that will keep you playing for a good long while. Procedurally generated levels filled with waves of angry red enemies will keep you entertained, and the challenge level amps up as different kinds of bad guys try and stop your progress.

Don’t Eat Us

A strange mix of an auto-runner and a tapper. Yo…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – August 23rd

Hi there. It’s Wednesday. And while I might be in a different country to the one I’m usually in, that’s not going to stop me from creating and publishing all of the brilliant content that you, our dear reader, expects from AppSpy.

If you’re new here, or you’ve just not been paying attention, Wednesday is when we round up all of the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. We deliver the hot content, and then we pass the savings on to you. Or some such nonsense.

Tales of the Adventure Company – 99p / 99c

A smart, puzzling roguelike that’s all about killing monsters, making new friends, and staying alive for as long as possible. It’s on the casual side of the scale, but there’s enough pop and cruelty here to make it well worth a look. You’ll be tapping, a lot, but you’re going to be having a lovely old time while you’re doing it.

Yuri – Free

A gorgeous looking platformer that plays by its own rules. And its own rules mainly involve doing platformery thing…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – August 18th

Well, would you look at that. We’ve all made it to Friday. I’m proud of us. Especially you. Yeah, that’s right, you. You know what I’m talking about. That thing? You’ve done real well this week, and I reckon next week is going to be even better for you.

But if you want a mobile video game to set up next week for you, which one should you choose? Well, I say, why choose one when you can choose five? These five in fact. The five best games that came out on the App Store this week.

You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you think I’ve missed anything, make sure you stick your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. I’ll definitely read them.

Meshi Quest: Five-star Kitchen

A game about serving sushi. Well, that’s what it’s ostensibly about. It’s actually about getting really, really stressed and concerned and then messing everything up and ruining your fledgling restaurant empire. It’s a cooking-sim from Square Enix, and it’s actually really, really good.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – August 16th

Hello there. It’s Wednesday. So that’s probably good. Especially if you like the days of the week. I don’t like them. They are mean to me. I have to do things on them. What a life. What a silly, silly life.

Anyway, Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store at the moment. It’s a time-honoured tradition, and I’m not going to stop now just because people are screaming at me to get out of the building because it’s on fire.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you spot any exquisite deals that I might have missed, feel free to chuck them in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Tsuro – Free

A slick and polished board game adaptation that’s all about leading dragons around. It looks lovely, it plays brilliantly, and did I mention that it’s full of dragons? I hope I did, because that’s one of the game’s selling points. Or not selling. Because it’s free right now.

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

Because that’s what we do on Friday here at AppSpy. We cut through the nonsense and make sure you know the five games you should be playing this week. And it’s been a pretty damn good week, all told.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to go to the App Store and grab them. Oh, and if you think we’ve missed something, feel free to stick it in the comments all the way down at the bottom of the article. Right then, onwards and upwards.

Titanfall: Assault

A brilliant mobile MOBA with plenty of intelligent RTS additions. Lay down cards representing your troops, call forth the power of enormous titans, and generally have a lovely old time. It’s like Clash Royale for people who like games, and it’s definitely worth checking out.

The Tuesday best of – Hellblade is out, so here are the best psychological horrors for iPhone and iPad

Well, it’s Tuesday. I just went outside and got soaked to the skin. Don’t go outside if you don’t like getting wet and live near where I live. In fact it’s probably best not to go outside at all if you live near where I live, it’s pretty grim around here.

And speaking of grim things, today has seen the release of Hellblade on PS4 and PC. It’s a gritty hack and slash game with psychological horror elements. Obviously it’s not going to come to mobile, but it did get me thinking – what are the best psychological horror games on the App Store?

So that’s exactly what I’ve gone and written. A list of the three best psychological horror games for iOS. You can download them by clicking on the emboldened names below. And if you, inevitably, disagree, stick your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Forgotten Memories

Do you like Silent Hill? Well the developer of Forgotten Memories certainly did. This is a creepy horror game that borrows heavily from Konami’s classic series. Not that that’s a bad thing. I mean, if you’re going to borrow you should definitely borrow from the best. There are spooky mannequins, weird shenanigans, and more than one moment where you’ll probably soil yourself. You know, in a good way.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – August 9th

Well, would you look at that. It’s finally stopped raining. Again, this probably doesn’t have any bearing on your existence if you don’t live near me, but the sun is out again and I can feel the first soft caresses of autumn rolling in the window. This is a good thing. Especially if, like me, you have the constitution of a seal.

With that in mind, or more likely, with none of that in mind, it’s time to round up the best games on sale on the App Store right now. There are some pretty good games on the list this week, although it took me a while to find them, because they all went on sale earlier in the week. But I persevered, for you.

As per, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think I’ve missed anything, feel free to put your suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. I know you won’t, but I have to ask.

Her Story – £2.99 / $ 2.99

If you haven’t played Her Story yet, then shame on you. It’s one of the finest games on the App Store, if not all of the stores all around the world. A clever narrative about death weaves itself around a series of interview segments. You push the interviews on, searching for key words. It’s super smart, utterly enthralling, and you really should play it.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – August 4th

Oh look, Friday is here. Hello Friday. How are you? Eating all your greens? What’s that? You’re already drunk. Well you should be careful, you don’t want a reputation as a booze hound. No, don’t stick that smashed glass in my face. NO! STOP!

While I wait for the ambulance of the weekend, I suppose I’ll write up the five bests games that came out on mobile this week. It’s been an alright week if you like gaming on the go, although I doubt it’ll go down in history. Because, well, that would be ridiculous.

Anyway, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve got any games you think should be included on the list, stick them in the comments below.

Tiny Defense 2

A side-on tower defence sequel with a few tricks up its sleeve. It’s not revolutionary, but if you’re a fan of the genre you’re going to enjoy everything the game has to offer. It’s well put together, there’s a lot to sink your teeth into, and you’ll have a smile on your face for most of the time you’re playing.
