You’ve come to the right place. Allow us to run through the best and most interesting games to have hit the App Store and Google Play Store over the past seven days or so.
The slow start to the year continues – there have been no outright knockout game released for iOS or Android this week. But there have been some notable and highly playable releases.
Star Wars: Force Arena
By Netmarble Games – download on iOS / download on Android
Here we have a Vainglory-like MOBA whose main asset is being able to attack the opponent’s base with Darth Vader rather than a generic ‘hero’. Very playable it is too.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
By Nicalis – buy on iOS
It’s taken a while, but one of the biggest indie darlings of recent years is now on iOS. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a macabre twin-stick shooter with hefty roguelike elements, which means stacks of replayability.
By C4M – download on iOS / download on Android
A smartly-designed, beautiful-looking strategy hybrid that blends MOBA, RTS and base defence elements. It’s simple, but far from shallow.
Bubble Witch Saga 3
By King – download on iOS / download on Android
Another game in the Puzzle Bobble-aping match-three series. Before you risk irreparable eye-roll damage, know that this is a highly polished and content-packed puzzler.
By Armor Games – buy on iOS
This side-on turn-based RPG has a unique comic book charm to it, as well as an involving (if grind-heavy) battle system.
By Sunnyside Games – buy on iOS / buy on Android
This beautiful shooter sees a mystical masked being stood static atop an ancient temple, fending off winged horrors with cleansing light beams.
