Celebrate Father’s Day with Creature Quest this weekend

Creature Quest is pulling out all the stops for Father’s Day. The game’s decked out in a fatherly new theme, but there’ll be ample opportunity this month to collect rare creatures with two new celebratory events.

Appeasing Poppa, the new event quest, runs through June 27. The Astral Watcher has landed in town, and he’s not messing around. He needs a rare gift or he’ll make good on his threat to destroy the entire city. It’s up to brave adventurers like yourself to head out and find a suitable present to give to the Watcher. In doing so, you might capture a rare Draconic Gallant or a Clockwork.

If it’s even more rare creatures you seek, you’ll want to hop into the game this weekend from June 16 to 18 for the Pillaging Poppas Summon Event. Relive fond memories of adventuring with your dear dad by questing for some exclusive creatures. Diamond Summons during the event run the chance of being a Tool Box which holds one of 10 Father’s Day-themed Legendary Creatures. That includes the infamous Astral Watcher himself, along with the Titan, Cyclops, Wizard, or Marid. You may discover Epic Creatures, too, including the Gorgon, Walrus Rikishi, Ogre, Shard Golem, or War Elephant. It’s the perfect chance to get into the spirit of Father’s Day with some mobile gamin…

As per usual, we’re going to round up the five best games that have hit the App Store this week. That’s just the kind of gentle and caring souls we are here at AppSpy. Sharing is caring. And we care. A lot.

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…

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…

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.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of a game to download it. And if you think we’ve missed anything, feel free to chuck your suggestions in the comments down there at the bottom of the article.

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

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 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – April 28th

Friday is here. That means when you go to bed tonight, you don’t have to get up for work tomorrow. Unless, of course, you do have to get up for work tomorrow. In which case I’m sorry. Maybe lay off the lemon sherberts tonight, eh, otherwise you won’t sleep.

Anyway, if you want some mobile entertainment for the weekend, we’ve got your back. We’ve got your back in the shape of the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. We are so good to you.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. Er, I think that covers everything that you need to know. So, yeah, go about your business.

Binary Dash

A smart two-touch platformer that sees you leaping over things and switching the side of the level you’re running on. It’s not super fresh, but it is super challenging. Definitely worth giving a go if you like suffering.

Pengy Has a Dream


A game that’s all about helping a penguin fulfil its dream of flight. I mean, really, what’s not to like about that? Build an icy path for Pengy to move down. If he hits the ground, it’s game over. Cute and fu…

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.

CATS

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 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
