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…

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.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – May 26th

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.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – May 19th

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.

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.
