The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – December 8th

Friday has rolled around, which means that it’s time to round up the best games that came out this week on the App Store. Because, after all, that’s the sort of thing that we like to do on Friday. That and drinking mimosas on the beach. Mmmmmm beach.

It’s been a pretty good week on the App Store all told, as weeks in December usually are. Devs are rushing to get their games out before everyone gets a new iPhone for Christmas or something, I guess. I dunno, I’m not a dev. That’s why I’m writing this.

As usual you can click on the names of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you’ve seen anything you think should be included on the list, make sure you chuck them in the comments down there at the bottom of the content.

Reigns: Her Majesty


A game about making choices. You’re a queen, and your subjects petition you with questions, and your answers change the esteem they hold you in. You need to balance the different faction’s feelings, and figure out what’s going on underneath it all. Slick, smart, and an awful lot of fun to play.

Portal Knights

An ARPG set in a giant sandbox that sees you teaming up with other players to peg it around, smash things up, and fight giant bosses. It’s a little…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – December 1st

It’s the end of the week. That’s nice isn’t it? Unless you have to work at the weekend. Then I feel sorry for you. I’m sure you’ll make it through though, I believe in you, and your overwhelming power to succeed whatever the odds.

As it’s Friday we’re going to round up the best games of the week. Because that’s what we like to do on Friday. It’s been a pretty damn good week all told, with some big games and some small games and quite a lot of fun games. And we all love fun here at AppSpy. We love it so much.

You can click on the bold names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if there’s anything you’ve spotted on your travels that you think your fellow App-Spiers should be playing, feel free to wham it in the comments at the bottom of the content.

GRID Autosport

A super-slick racing sim that’s premium. Pay once, get everything. It looks incredible, it controls even better, and there’s so much going on here that even for the price it’s well worth checking out. Oh, and most importantly it’s wonderfully exciting. The sort of racer thats going to crawl into your brain and stay there.

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

Well, the week is finally at an end. We had some laughs didn’t we? We had some giggles? I’m pretty sure I saw some people other there engaged in just a little bit of banter. Basically what I”m trying to say is that we’ve had a jolly old time.

But that jolly old time isn’t coming to an end just yet. We’ve got one last bit of content to throw in your face before old father time claims the week as his own. And since it’s Friday, it’s a round up of all the best games that came out on the App Store this week. I thought you’d be pleased.

Following the agreed format, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to go and grab them from the App Store. Oh, and if you’ve played anything that we haven’t included, feel free to stick it in the comments at the bottom of the article. Thanks.

Shadow Fight 3


Do you like beating the living snot out of bad guys? Do you like super slick fighting games that twinkle and fizz thanks to the latest technological advancements? Er, do you like shadows? If you answered yes to most of those then you’re going to love Shadow Fight 3. It’s a super polished brawler and a great way to show what your slick new hardware can do.

Beat Street

Almost the antithesis of Shadow Fight 3. Whi…

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – November 10th

Oh thank whoever you like to thank for things, it’s the end of the week. We can all curl up for two days and not have to face the horrors of being a grown up or having to put trousers on. What a delight. What a fine gift from our capitalist overlords.

But before we slink away to the safety and comfort of our respective blanket forts, there’s time for one more chunk of content. And as it’s Friday that means that it’s time to round up the best games that have landed on the App Store this week.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if there’s anything you think I’ve missed, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comments all the way down at the bottom of the article.

Starman

A wonderfully evocative adventure. It looks gorgeous, presented in slick black and white, and it plays brilliantly. Each level is essentially a puzzle to figure out. There’s an intriguing story here as well, and it’s well worth sticking with the game all the way to the end.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – October 27th

Oh well it’s Friday. Another week lost to the rampant march of time. Have you achieved all the things you wanted to? Have you become a useful member of the work force? Have you sat around in your pants a lot wondering what you’re doing with your life? Probably that last one if you’re anything like me.

Whatever you have or haven’t done, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. It’s just something we like to do, we’re not contractually obliged to do it or anything. It’s just a bit of a giggle.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you think we’ve missed anything feel free to dump your own suggestions in the cess pool at the bottom of the content that we like to call the comments section.

Highwind

A shooter that takes the shooter apart, then lets you play around with the different parts. It’s pretty smart, it’s pretty slick, and it’s got a load of decent ideas floating around within its little blasts of blasting. It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely worth checking out.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – November 3rd

It’s Friday, and when it’s Friday we like to round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. So guess what? That’s exactly what we’re going to do. No messing about here today.

If you want to download any of our selection, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below. And if you think we’ve missed anything out, feel free to let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

Final Fantasy Dimensions 2

A neat FF game that sits somewhere between Squeenix’s mobile output and a fully fledged title. It’s a lot of fun, and it cuts back on a lot of the wandering around that some people find off putting about the series. It’s full of retro charm, interesting characters, and plenty of scraps to sink your teeth into.

Runic Rampage

You’re a dwarf. A very angry dwarf. And you’ve got a big hammer. Your job is to stomp around tight levels, mashing bad monsters to bits. It’s a simple set up, but the crunching combat and giant splurges of gore are pretty special to behold. An RPG levelling system lets you tailor your character to how you play as well.

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

It’s Friday again. The week is spinning towards its ignominious and no doubt messy end. By which I mean it’s nearly the weekend and we’re all probably going to go out and get real silly. I know I am. Real silly. You know what I mean.

Anyway, there’s still the small matter of one more bit of AppSpy content to round off the week in style. And since it’s Friday, like it always is on Fridays, that means we’re going to round up all the best games that came out on the App Store this week. So that’ll be fun.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve spotted anything that caught your eye that we’ve missed, feel free to chuck your suggestions in the comments down there at the bottom of the article. Cool. Cool cool cool.

Warhammer Quest 2

A turn-based dungeon crawler set in the most miserable, monster-riddled corners of the Warhammer world. Build up your party of unlikely adventurers in order to try and save the world from the ravages of chaos. Oh, and get some sweet loot in the process.

The Thursday Find, our favourite game of the week – Time Recoil

Oh look it’s Thursday again. I know I said things were going to change around here last week, but I’ve decided some things are better staying the way they are. At least for the time being anyway. But don’t get too attached to anything, destruction is the nature of the universe.

All of that means that we’re going to do another Thursday Find. That’s when we write about one game that you definitely should be playing this week. It was hard picking just one, but I think I’ve spotted an under-appreciated doozy that’s going to make you go “oh, thanks for finding us that under-appreciated doozy, Harry.”

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you’ve got your own suggestions for a Thursday Find, feel free to share them with the class by adding them to the comments down there at the bottom of this excellent content.

Time Recoil

This one has been out on various other consoles and gaming devices for a while now, but it’s just landed on the App Store and it’s pretty damn good. If you like twin-stick shooters you’re going to lap it up.

Bear in mind though that this is a twin-stick shooter with a twist. Namely that there’s only one stick. And when you shoot people you slow down time. Oh, and if you kill enough people you’ll unlock special moves that can literally destroy walls.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – October 13th

Whether you like it or not, we’ve reached the end of another week. Some of us have done things, some of us have done stuff, some of us have spent too much time asleep on their sofa. But it’s done with now. We’ll turn over a new leaf on Monday, right?

Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And it’s been a pretty sparkly week for mobile gaming all told. We got some ports, we got some exclusives, and everything that came out, for the most part, was pretty darn good.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve spotted anything else you think should be on the list, it’d be nice if you stuck it in the comments down there are the bottom of the hot content.

The Talos Principle

The super slick first person puzzler game finally gets to the App Store. It’s every bit as intriguing on your phone or tablet, although it is pretty resource intensive. The controls translate pretty well, and while it might not be a perfect port, for just a fiver it’s pretty hard to complain.

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

Friday is happening. Friday is happening all around us. There’s nothing anyone can do about it, so let’s just roll with the punches and see what happens. This crazy rollercoaster ride is going to have to come to an end at some point, whether we want it to or not.

If you’d like some entertainment while the carriages shoot up and down though, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out this week on the App Store. Quite frankly it’s a bit of an odd week, but bear with me because I think there’s some decent games to be found if you’re willing to persevere.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve got your own suggestions about what should be included, feel free to whack them in the comments section all the way down there at the bottom of the content. Stay fresh.

REKT

There’s a lot to be said for flipping hyper-powered cars off the end of ramps. And Rekt understands that. It’s a simple game, but there’s a lot going on here if you really want to master the spins and skids you need to get the best scores. It’s silly, it’s entertaining, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Really, what’s not to like?
