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 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

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – March 31st

Well, that was the week that was. Some games came out, Samsung announced a new phone, I ate some biscuits. Pretty hectic if you ask me. Which I notice you didn’t.

Anyway, our last post of the week usually rounds up the five best games that hit the App Store this week. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do right now. After all, we’re traditionalists here at AppSpy.

As ever click on the emboldened names of the games in the list below and you’ll be whisked away to the App Store to download them. And if you think we’ve missed anything feel free to have your say in the comments below.

Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed – Free

A solid and engaging, free to play take on the Dynasty Warriors series. Lead your warriors in massive battles, take on legendary bosses, and generally smash the poop out of everything in the world. It’s fun, it’s fast, and the free to play isn’t too annoying.

Kami 2 – Free

The sequel to the zen-like paper folding game. It’s sharper and deeper than the original, so expect some paper cuts here. But it’s basically worth it just for th…

The 5 best iPad and iPhone games this week – 12th February

It’s Sunday. And that can only mean one thing. We’re all horribly sad that the weekend has come to such a horrible yet inevitable conclusion. But there’s still time for one more thing.

And it’s this one thing – a list of the five best games that came out last week. In no particular order, rather presented in the order that they came to me while I was sat on my sofa wondering what went wrong with my life.

Join us next week for more exciting content about the world of mobile games. And probably a bunch of other stuff as well. Maybe sandwiches? I really like sandwiches.


A text-based adventure with its own unique style. It might get a little bit repetitive towards the end, but there’s also a lot going on to recommend it.

There’s a great bit of writing here, and the game manages to mix its RPG tropes together into a compelling adventure that pushes you deeper into its galactic core.

Maze Lord

The 5 best iPad and iPhone games this week – 4th February

It’s the weekend! Happy weekend everyone. I hope you’re out and about expressing yourself in however you see fit. And if you’re not, I hope you’ve got a good game to keep you company.

You don’t? Well that’s awful. But don’t worry, I’m here to help you out with things like that. How about I go right ahead and write a list about the five best iOS games that hit the App Store this week?

Sounds good? Ace. Well, here’s the list then. And I hope you find something on it that’s to your liking. Or if not, that you have a lovely old time reading it.

Pixel Craft

A mix of modern and old fashioned arcade sensibilities come together to make this shooter surprisingly addictive.

Chase high scores, blow up bosses, and upgrade your blocky little spaceship. It’s fun, it’s fast, and it’ll keep your fingers busy for a good few hours before you get bored.

Warlock’s Tower

A super retro puzzle game that looks like it was lifted directly from the screen of a Gameboy. And you play as a mailman, which is pretty cool.

Work your way up the titular tower, sticking within the tight move limit and avoiding all the awful tr…

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.


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.…

Last week on Pocket Gamer

Anyone else finding that 2017 is taking a while to wake up? That certainly seems to have been the case in the world of mobile and portable gaming.

Thank goodness, then, for Nintendo. The Kyoto gaming giant recently held an event that pretty much defined our week over on Pocket Gamer.

For news on that and other things we’ve been covering on PG over the past seven days, read on.

Switching up a gear

As 2017 ticked around we were already talking about the Nintendo Switch. Friday’s full reveal of the exciting portable/console hybrid ensured that it became our main topic for conversation.

While the general response to the launch was decidedly mixed, PG editor Glen offered a more optimistic angle by explaining why he didn’t think the Switch would be another Wii U.

As the day moved on (the Switch announcement came about in the wee hours for us Brits), Glen was invited to London to snag some time with the console itself. His initial impressions raised our hopes for the console further, though there remain very real concerns over its pricing and launch library.

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.

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,

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

Another week has been and gone. Did you get up to much good stuff? Or did you just sit around thinking to yourself, ah it’s nearly the end of the year, there’s not much point trying to start anything new now?

Guess which I did. Anyway, the end of a week means that it’s time for us to have a look at the best games that came out in that said week. And all in all it’s been a pretty impressive seven days for mobile gamings.

We’ve got some great ports, and some great new original mobile games of every sort. So maybe it it time to try something new. Maybe it’s time to try something new like one of the games on the list? Go on, treat yourself.

Galaxy on Fire 3: Manticore

A big swooshy swoopy space battling game. This is, as you might be able to tell, the third in the series, but it adds some new tweaks and twists that makes it feel like the first time GoF has really fit on mobile.

Big explosions, lovely graphics, and loads and loads and loads to do. Like, seriously, there’s a whole galaxy to explore and shoot to bits. So maybe go and do that, yeah?

Bully: Anniversary Edition

A welcome mobile outing for one of Rockstar’s slightly forgotten classics. It might not have the grit of a Red Dead or a GTA, but it’s funny, violent, and has a lot of neat tricks up its uniform’s sleeve.

And the port is excellent.…

New iOS games we’re looking forward to this week – Space Marshals 2, Riptide GP: Renegade and more

Each week a fresh batch of iOS games hits the App Store, and it can be easy to overlook or miss a few. We thought it would be a good example, then, to round up some of our most eagerly anticipated games headed for a release some time over the coming days.

This week we’re looking forward to a console-quality arcade racer, a top-notch twin-stick action game sequel, a colourful card game, and more.

We should supply the caveat that no release dates are set in stone, particularly when it comes to Apple’s App Store. But as far as we know, all of these games are set to launch this week.

Space Marshals 2

Space Marshals 2

The first Space Marshals was an uncommonly polished top-down twin-stick shooter with a hefty dollop of stealth and an appealing sci-fi western theme. Now Pixelbite Games (the maker of the Reckless Racing series) is ready to launch the sequel, Space Marshals 2.

Expect the game to feature 70 weapons and 20 missions – at least at first. One of the great things about the first game was the support that Pixelbite provided after release, so expect plenty of add-content in the follow-up.
