The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – April 26th

Oh look it’s Wednesday. Wednesday is the day when we round up the best games on sale on the App Store right now. So that is exactly what we’re going to do. And we’re going to do it with a smile on our faces and a song in our hearts.

There are some real crackers in the list this week, so you should probably buy all of them to further grease the wheels of the capitalist machine. I mean, them wheels aren’t going to grease themselves now, are they?

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them from the App Store. I think that covers everything you need to know. Now go forth and consume content. It’ll be great.

Tsuro – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A digital version of an intriguing boardgame. It’s all about dragons. But there isn’t any gold hoarding here. Instead you’re just trying not to fly off the board. You build your dragon’s path as you play, and whoever has the last dragon standing wins.

Glitchskier – 99p / 99c

A gorgeous looking shooter with a supreme retro aesthetic. It’s super tough, but it’s also super rewarding. Fly around a collapsing computer syst…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – April 21st

Friday Friday, gotta create content on Friday. Everybody’s sat around saying “Harry where is the content please?” Well shut your mouths, the content is here. And it’s the usual content, as you might be expecting.

Fridays we like to take a look at the five best games that have come out on the App Store this week. So that’s what I’m going to do. I love tradition. Love it so much.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of a game to download it. You know the drill. We all know the drill. It’s a big drill. Sigh. Here goes.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Telltale’s latest. This one follows everyone’s favourite space heroes on a new adventure. As we’ve come to expect from Telltale the first episode isn’t fantastic, but it sets things up nicely for what’s to come. One to jump in on early.

A game about building tanks for cats to drive. It’s not quite as good as that sounds unfortunately, but it is pretty entertaining. And you can give a cat a chainsaw to play with, which is hilarious and incredibly dangerous.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – April 19th

Well, it’s Wednesday again. How did that happen? Did someone fast forward the weekend? Was it you? If it was I’m very disappointed in you. Try slowing it down next time, yeah? I don’t know, some people.

Anyway Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. So I’ve just gone right ahead and done that for you. Even though you might have fast forwarded the weekend. It’s just how I rule.

There are some classics in the mix this week, but you’re going to want to be quick if you’re going to download any of them – these sales won’t last forever. As always, click on the emboldened name of a game in the list below to grab it. Let’s do this.

Out There – 99p / 99c

A big and wonderful space exploration game. Part gamebook, part roguelike, all loneliness and death. This is the Omega edition of the game as well, so it’s chock full of interesting new content. And for less than the price of a thing that costs a pound you can’t really go wrong.

Hitman GO – £1.99 / $ 1.99

The game that launched the GO range from Square Enix. It might not have the chops of the g…

Here’s everything you need to know about Pokemon GO’s eggstravaganza update for iPhone and Android

Easter is here, and that can only mean one thing. Pokemon GO has been updated! Actually it probably means a lot more than that, but that’s the thing I’m focusing on because I don’t know how much content I’d be able to get out of eggs and zombie Jesus.

So instead I’m going to write about the Pokemon GO eggstravaganza. So I guess I am writing about eggs. Look, it’s been a long day and I don’t know where my wallet is so let’s just try and get this over and done with then we can all go have a nice long weekend.

What is it?

The eggstravaganza is the latest update to Pokemon GO. It’s come out just in time for the Easter break, and it’s brought with it some new tweaks that are likely to make you smile while you stuff chocolate facsimiles of chicken periods into your face.

What tweaks?

Well, there’s now a wider range of Pokemon in the 2km eggs. So that’s a pretty good reason to put some shoes on and go for a wander. Plus every egg that you hatch is going to give you more candy. ‘Tis the season, after all.

The Pokemon that pop out are going to level up faster as well, thanks to the fact they get double XP. Basically Pokemon GO really wants you to start wandering around, collecting more Pokemon, and having a lovely old time in the sunshine.

Lucky Eggs are also on sale in the store. They’re 50% off, which is a pretty good deal, and using one of those will get you quadruple XP. Which sounds ridic…

The best free iPhone games – The AppSpy list

Oh hello. How’s it going? I hope you’re well. I’ve decided to start something a little bit special here on AppSpy. It’s a list, but it’s unlike any list you’ve ever seen before in your entire life. Because it’s a list that’s going to keep growing.

It’s a list of the best free games on iPhone, and every week I’m going to be adding five more. One day the list will probably become sentient and take over the world. But until that day, it’s just going to offer you a chance to find out the best free games on the App Store.

So without further ado let’s throw ourselves head first into this frankly ridiculous idea. Oh, and you can click the emboldened names of the games to wander off to the App Store and download them. Hope you have fun! Kthnxbai

April 12th

Platform Panic

Another brilliant game from Nitrome makes it onto the list by virtue of it being brilliant. This one mixes an endless runner, some twitchy jumping, and a bunch of retro charm to great effect. Add it to your library now.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – April 12th

Oh look it’s Wednesday. That’s nice. Er, I can’t think of anything cynical or funny to say right now, so I’m just going to fill this first paragraph with explanations to that effect. Sound good to you? Cool.

Well Wednesday is when we look at the best games on sale on the App Store at the moment. And so I’ve done that. I’ve put them in a list. You can read the list down there.

As usual click on the name of a game to go and buy or download it. This ends the preamble for the list. I hope you enjoy the rest of the content. All the best.

Hyperburner – Free

Hyperburner is free!?! Oh cool. But what is it? Well it’s a super fast sci-fi racer that looks absolutely gorgeous. Perhaps more importantly it also controls fantastically. And let’s be honest, the controls are the most important things in a game. No, really, they are. Thinking an auto-running Wipeout and you’re getting there.

Kathy Rain – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A clever and engaging point and click adventure with a wonderful main character. It’s interesting, it’s smart, and it looks at things from an angle that a lot of games wou…

The best Call of Duty games for iPhone and iPad

With King looking for developers to work on its new Call of Duty game, I thought it was high time to look at the Call of Duty games that are already out on mobile.

And because here at AppSpy we’re super fans of content in list form, I’ve decided that the best way to show you the best CoD games on mobile is with a list. A list that’s going to start after the next paragraph.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game to go to the App Store and download it. And if you disagree with any of our choices then chuck them in the comments right down there at the bottom of the page.

Call of Duty: Heroes

It’s Clash of Duty of Heroes With Clans. Build up your own base, people if with gruff and grizzly soldiers, and then try and kill your friends. Or invade their bases, I don’t know I wasn’t really paying attention.

Anyway, it’s not terrible. If you’re looking for a Call of Duty game that doesn’t really ask that much of you, then it’s well worth a look. Just don’t expect to be pulling off any super sniping shots or anything like that.

Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies

There are a couple of Zombies games out on mobile, and this one’s probably the best of the bunch. It’s definitely the newest, which a lot o…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – April 17th

Oh look, it’s the end of the week. How on earth did that happen? I have literally no idea. Well, I have some inkling, but it’s not enough to base a hypothesis on just yet.

What was I talking about? Oh yeah, Friday. Every Friday here at AppSpy we like to break down for you the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now.

As per usual, click on the emboldened name of a game below and you’ll be taken to the App Store where you can download it. Won’t that be exciting for you, you little scamps.

Cell 13 – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A clever puzzling platformer that plays around with portals. And holes. And switches. And a bunch of other things. It’s simple to look at, but there’s a lot going on under the hood if you’re willing to dig into its robotic underbelly.

Drop Not! – Free

A game about rolling along a path. The only controls you have involve tapping the screen to change the direction you’re rolling in. And strangely enough it works really well. Throw in checkpoints and score multipliers and you’ve got yourself an entertaining little diversion.

Quantum Revenge

Gangstar New Orleans guide for iPhone, iPad, and Android – Part 4: Advanced tips

So you’ve got this far in Gangstar: New Orleans, but now you’re looking for some tips and tricks that are going to push your criminality on to the next level. Well don’t you worry, we’re here to help.

In this fourth part of our guide to Gameloft’s latest crime sim we’re going to look at some advanced tips to make sure that you’re pushing your empire of wrongdoing in the right direction.

Tomorrow we’ll throw out some tips and hints to finish things off, but right now we’re going to focus on making sure players who’ve stuck a lot of time into the game are pushing in the right direction. I mean, it’d be embarrassing if they weren’t, right?

Choose your battles

It’s important to make sure you’re tough enough for the challenge that you’re facing. That doesn’t just mean being at the level the game requires, it means being well over it.

If you’re only a couple of points stronger than the game is suggesting, you need to go and grind some challenges and get some more upgrade materials to push you higher.

It might seem like a boring way around things, but the stronger you are the easier you’re going to find the challenges. And by the same token, the better you’re going to do in them.

Upgrade your car

Make sure you’re not just upgrading your weapons but you’re upgrading your vehicles as well. It’s all well and good having super strong guns, but your car needs to be on form as well.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – April 5th

Oh look it’s Wednesday. So that means it’s time to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. And looking down my list well, there are a couple of really good games going for cheap right now.

As ever you can click on the emboldened name of a game to download it. And there’s one game here that you absolutely should grab if you haven’t already, because it’s incredible. Ah, but which one?

This one…

Her Story – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A brilliant and entrancing story about a murder. But it’s much more than that. Told through video clips that you watch in a disjointed order, this is a tale that twists and turns as you delve deeper into it. It’s a game that’s tough to explain – you really need to play it though, that much I know for sure.

Mayhem – 99p / 99c

A super-quick, super-hard retro blaster that offers a massive challenge to anyone who dares jump into it. It’s not the deepest game out there, but it’s the sort of experience that, for just 99p, is almost impossible to turn down.
