The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – September 22nd

Friday has come around again, bringing with it the chiming doom of another week. The days are fading, time moves inexorably onwards, entropy will claim us all. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t play some sick mobile games in the meantime.

And since so many great ones came out this week, you probably need some sort of round-up to tell you where to spend your hard earned cash monies. Well fret not my wee friends, because that’s exactly what I’ve gone and written for you.

You can poke at the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you’ve got your own suggestions it really would be lovely if you put them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. I’ll give you a hug if I ever see you in real life if you do that. Honest.

The Witness


It’s been a long time coming, but Jonathan Blow’s open world puzzle adventure has finally landed on the App Store. You’re on an island, you’ve got 500 puzzles to figure out. You can do it at your own pace, exploring and finding out more as you figure out each challenge. It’s incredibly slick, and you’ll be sinking hours into it.

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 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.

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 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.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – June 23rd

Friday is here. Hello Friday. You’re looking very nice aren’t you? Have you lost weight? That’s a lovely jumper you’re wearing. I like what you’ve done with your hair as well. I’m just super glad you’re here I guess. I’ve missed you.

You’ve probably missed Friday too. Because Friday at AppSpy is when we round up the best games that have hit the App Store this week. And it’s been a pretty damn good week all round. Many not vintage, but somewhere in the top 12 percentile. I don’t know what that means.

Anyway you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if there’s anything you think other people should be playing this week, toss those recommendations in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Touchdowners

A super gem from Colin Lane. This one’s an American Football sim with a twist. The twist being it isn’t a sim at all, it’s in fact a chaotic rendition of the sport that sees you controlling three players at the same time. Fast, frantic, and most of all fun.

Age of Rivals

A fast-paced and surprisingly deep card game. Build your city, fight your rivals, and conquer as much as possible. All in t…

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…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – June 9th

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.
