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

Well if it isn’t our old friend Friday. The last day of the working week, the harbinger of the week-end. Here to tempt us with its promises of lie ins and roasts and barbecues and long nights of endless shenanigans.

But we’ve got one last piece of content to get through here at App Spy. It’s the piece of content you’ve been waiting for. The piece of content that tells you the five best games that came out on the App Store this week.

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.

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

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.

Voyageur

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.

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.

WarFriends


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.…
