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.

No Stick Shooter


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

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – May 10th

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…

Gangstar New Orleans guide for iPhone, iPad, and Android – Part 5: Hints and tricks

In this last part of our guide to Gangstar: New Orleans we’re going to walk you through some of the tips and tricks you’re going to need to climb to the top of the criminal ladder. Is criminality a ladder? I honestly have no idea.

Anyway, we hope you’ve enjoyed reading through the guide, and that it’s helped you chase your dreams of becoming the best (worst?) criminal that New Orleans has ever seen. That’s the dream, right?

Without further ado, here’s some words to lead you through that final stretch. And if you’ve got any ideas of your own to add, feel free to stick them in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Don’t die

It might sound like a silly thing to say, but not dying is key to success in New Orleans. Mainly because it costs you currency every time your health bar drops to zero.

Soemtimes it’s worth considering your options. Should you spend some gems to get a health pack and keep on breathing, or toss away a chunk of gold to the doctor once you’ve died.

Then of course there’s the third option of just running away. That’s obviously not so easy when you’re playing one of the boxed-in missions, but if you’re in the open world sections it’s a perfectly viable strategy.

Check the time

One thing to remember is that the quicker you complete missions, the more stars you’re going to get. If you’re not getting three stars on a regular basis then it’s def…

The Tuesday best of – Sonic The Hedgehog games for iPhone and iPad

Well, it looks like there’s another Sonic mobile game on the way. I think maybe there’s always another Sonic mobile game on the way. Because, y’know, Sonic.

Anyway, that made me think it was high time to rank the blue speedster’s mobile outings to date, and then present those findings in some sort of list form. Which is exactly what I’m going to do in a bit.

As always you can click on the emboldened name of the game to download it. And if you think we’ve missed anything out, stick your suggestions in the comments right down at the bottom of the article. Go on, you know you want to.

Sonic Dash – Free

It’s interesting that in the mobile gaming world, Sonic’s two main attributes have been cut up into two distinct experiences. The first of them is here in Sonic Dash. It’s a game about running forwards. A lot.

Essentially it’s an auto-runner starring the cast from Sonic’s adventures. And it’s actually a lot of fun. Slick and well put together, you’ll find an awful lot to like here if you’re not looking for anything with any depth.

The Tuesday best of – Point and click adventures for iPhone and iPad

It’s Tuesday. You probably noticed I wasn’t around on Friday and Monday. It’s not because I’m lazy, it’s because they were holidays in the UK. Fret not though, because I’m back, and I’ve got lovely content for you to ogle.

First up we’ve got our Tuesday best of. And since there’s a new Telltale game out, based on Guardians of the Galaxy, I thought it’d be fitting to look at some of the best point and click adventures on mobile.

As usual, you can click on the name of the game below to go and download them. And if you haven’t played any of them, I suggest you should do just that. Yup. Uh huh. Okay then.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

A super clever adventure about a dead detective. Solve crimes before they happen by poking and prodding the screen. And have a lovely old time doing it. Fresh and original, it’s gorgeous to look at as well.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

It was hard to choose one classic remaster to add to this list. I’ve gone for this one though, because it doesn’t get as much love as it deserves. One from the heyday of…

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

The week has come to an end. We are all ready to strip off our work skin, slide into our party skins, and rub against each other in a variety of different positions to try and forget that Monday is coming. That Monday is always coming.

But before that happens, let’s have a look at the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. After all, we can’t end the week without hurling even more excellent content into the void of the internet and hoping it sticks somewhere.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to swipe them from iTunes. Right then, let’s get this content show on the content road to content town.

Race for the Galaxy

A digital version of a classic board game. This one’s all about taking over the galaxy. It’s slick, it’s smart, and there’s a whole bunch of clever ideas swirling about in it. Play with friends or take on the AI. It’s entirely up to you.

A Snake’s Tale

A game about a snake. A snake that can’t touch itself. But it’s not that game. It’s a clever puzzler with some neat twists that’s closer to a sliding block puzzler than anything else. It doesn’t shout at you if you get things wrong either.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – May 3rd

It’s Wednesday. It’s come around quicker than usual because Monday was a bank holiday. At least it was in the UK. I don’t know where you’re from, so I’d feel bad if I said it was a bank holiday where you’re from and it wasn’t.

Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. So that’s what I’m going to do. Even though it feels much more like a Tuesday and so I’m very confused.

As ever, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to go and download them. And there you have it, an excellent preamble to an excellent piece of content. We’re all doing brilliant work,

Gamebook Adventures 9 – 99p / 99c

So right now all of the Gamebook Adventures games are on sale for 99p. If you’ve not heard of them, they’re a series of choose your own adventure games built by Tin Man Games. And they’re definitely worth playing. There’s a lot of them, but for 99p a pop you’re getting an awful lot of fun for almost nothing.

Probably one of the best known boardgames. This one’s been out on iOS for a good l…
