Meteorfall is a quirky roguelike card battler headed to iOS and Android on January 25th

 

Meteorfall isn’t the first game to combine the card game with RPG elements and character building, but it might be the most charming. With its colorful art style and stylized Adventure Time-esque designs, Meteorfall promised a humorous approach to the subgenre when it launches later this month.

Choosing from four heroes ranging from the floppy-hatted rogue to the broadsword-wielding warrior, battles in Meteorfall are ones of decks and loot, as you draw actions, perks, and gear from your deck; each draw opens the door for new tactics and strategies against the charmingly grotesque enemies you’ll face. Powerful magic, special weapons, and more expand your deck as you progress through the game.

Meteorfall is slated to release on the App Store and Google Play on January 25th; for more details and screenshots, you can visit the Meteorfall site.

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

We’ve got to the end of the first week of the year. I expect your hangovers have finally subsided now, and you’re back neck deep in the drudgery of your 9 to 5 existence. Ah well, it’s the weekend now, two days to sit around and recover enough energy to survive for the five days after.

But there’s still time for a little bit more content. And that content is here, in the shape of a round up of the best games that came out this week on the App Store. It’s not been the best week ever, but then that’s only to be expected really. And technically we’re covering about a week and a half, but that’s not the point.

Still, there’s a decent enough line up here. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to grab them. And if there’s anything out there you’ve played and loved that isn’t on the list, feel free to chuck it in the comments at the bottom.

Antihero

A slick and sophisticated mash up of an RPG and a board game, Antihero sees you trying to take over the underworld in Victorian London. It’s got a simple set of rules and a surprising amount of death. And you can train urchins to beat up other urchins too. Which is nice.

Shurado

A mix of Infinity Blade and Dark Souls. Stomp through an unforgiving labyrinth mashing the faces o…

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

The tree is down, the presents you didn’t like have all been returned or thrown into the bin, and now we’re back to trudging through the misery of winter without a single thing to look forward to. Well there might be things to look forward to, like wasting your money on things you don’t really need.

Which is good, because Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. There are some surprisingly good new deals out there, so much so that I actually had to pick which ones to talk about rather than just picking the first five semi-decent games I saw.

You can poke the emboldened name of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you’ve seen games you think should be included here, feel free to stick them in the comments section at the bottom. Go on, you know you want to.

Dungeon Rushers – 99p / 99c

A super slick RPG that sees you rushing through a series of dungeons. Well there’s more to it than that. The battle system is really smart, and there’s a good story here too. Well worth picking up for that dirt cheap price.

Out There Chronicles – Ep 1 – 99p / 99c\

A gamebook set in the same exciting world as Out There. There are alien races to encounter, and a mystery to uncover. If you lik…

The best games on sale on iPhone and iPad right now – January 25th

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. Because if we didn’t do it, who else would? That guy over there? I heartily doubt he’d have the nous.

There are some excellent games for cheap. One that’s only just come out, a couple that are reasonably new, and one that is, in my humble opinion, the finest entry into a classic series.

So let’s just jump right in and start listing things. Do you have your list helmet on? I hope so, because here we go. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Rollercoaster Tycoon 3


There are some really bad Rollercoaster Tycoon games on the App Store. This isn’t one of them though. It’s a bit fiddly, but it’s premium and it does what it says on its digital tin.

If you want to run a theme park from the comfort of your own phone, then this is the game for you. Especially now it’s pretty cheap.

Angry Birds Space


In some ways, this is the last great Angry Birds game. It tweaks the formula in all the right ways, and the introduction of gravity is, quite frankly, ingenious.

It looks great, it plays great, and right now you can pick it up for nothing at all. So why don’t you stop messing about and…

The 5 best iPad and iPhone games this week – 20th January

Oh Friday. Lovely, lovely Friday. The last day of the week, time to kick back, relax and maybe play some games. But what games are you going to play? That’s the question, isn’t it?

But don’t you worry, because here at AppSpy we’re really good at answering questions. And we’re going to answer that one in the form of a list. Because research has shown that lists are the best way of listing things.

So here we go, a list of the five games you should definitely think about playing this weekend. Especially if you like playing games. If you don’t like playing games I’m not entirely sure what you’re doing here.

WarFriends


You don’t really make any friends in war. You just shoot people until they’re dead and get horribly traumatised. That doesn’t change the fact that this is a solid third person cover shooter with a twist.

The twist is that it’s also sort of a tower offence game. And a bit like Clash Royale. It’s also a lot of fun, so go and play it and shoot people and upgrade things.

Sky Dancer


Yes, fine, it’s an auto-runner, but it’s also a really good looking game that’s surprisingly calming.…

The best games on sale on iPad and iPhone right now – January 18th

I think it’s fair to say that the App Store is having a bit of a snooze at the moment. And quite frankly I’d like to join it. But since that’s out of the question for a professional like myself, I figured I’d do a list of the best games on sale and iPad and iPhone instead.

The pickings might be a little slim, but there are three really good games here, and all of them are worth throwing some money at if you haven’t yet.

So with little or no further ado, here are them there games you should be picking up for cheap. If that’s the sort of thing you like doing, anyway.

Lifeline


Most of the Lifeline series is actually on sale at the moment, but I thought I’d highlight the original, since it was such a special game when it first came out.

Essentially the game is all about talking to someone stranded in space. You’re their literal lifeline. Things play out in real-time in the notifications on your phone.

It might sound just like a nice chat, but it’s much more than that. And if you’ve not played it yet you definitely should.

Tabletop Racing


A game that does pretty much exactly what you’d expect it to after reading its…

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…

The 5 best iPad and iPhone games this week – 6th January

Well Friday has rolled around again, like some sort of inevitable ball of week-ending glee. And here in AppSpy land that can only mean one thing – it’s time to tell you, our avid and loyal readership – what the best games of the week are.

There’ve been some gems this week, too. And some not so gems. That doesn’t make sense, but you get the point that I’m trying to make.

But hey, it’s the first week of January, so let’s give the App Store a break, yeah? And let’s write a list of five games that have come out in the last seven days that you might want to smush your face into.

Castle Creeps


Sure, it’s just a tower defence game, but it’s a tower defence game lathered up in the sort of soapy polish that’d make a nun blush.

Build some towers, train up your heroes, and follow a story about encroaching bands of monsters that want to steal all of your stuff. This is a TD game done with aplomb, and you can’t really fault it for that.

Read the Pocket Gamer review here.

Remedy Rush


An intriguing mix of a roguelike, an auto-runner, and a one-touch arcade experience, there are some great ideas in this one that you’re really going to want to try out,

Age of Wushu Dynasty will launch globally in January 2016

Age of Wushu Dynasty, the mobile martial arts MMO, will launch globally in January 2016.

Based on the PC MMO of (almost) the same name, Age of Wushu, Age of Wushu Dynasty is an RPG that puts you in the stylised martial arts world of Jianghu in the historic Ming Dynasty period of Chinese history.

You play as a Kung Fu master who must travel this dangerous open world, which includes many historic locations, to defeat other Kung Fu masters and create your own dynasty.

There’s no class system here so you’re free to select any weapon you’d like to fight with as well as any skills from four different schools of martial arts to create your own unique character.

All of the animations found in Age of Wushu Dynasty were modeled off genuine renowned Kung Fu masters, so expect to be impressed by the level of authenticity.

As an MMO, there are numerous different ways you can play with your friends and other players. You can fight together in cooperative multiplayer or against the enemy in PvP.

Age of Wushu Dynasty will launch globally on iOS and Android this January 2016.
