The 5 best games that are currently up for pre-order for iPhone and iPad

One good thing about Apple starting to take gaming seriously is that we've now got a better idea of when the games we're most excited about are going to land. Ish.

These are the 5 best tower defence games for iPhone

There are loads of genres that are synonymous with mobile, and one of those is tower defence. It's sort of fallen onto hard times in recent years though, with more powerful phones able to deal with more complex games. That doesn't mean you should ignore tower defence games though, far from it. Because while they might seem a tad old fashioned now, the best ones still offer some bite-sized strategy when you're on the go. And, on top of that, they're often an awful lot of fun. And who doesn't like fun? No one important, that's for sure. That said, if you think we've missed anything out from our list, then be sure to let us know, in the kindest way possible, in the comments section at the bot…

What are the best same-device multiplayer games for mobile?

Gaming on mobile can sometimes feel like a lonely experience. These devices are supposed to keep us connected, but instead we're staring at them to the detriment of the people around us. Or are we? After all, we might be playing a same-device multiplayer game. Handily, that's what this list is all about. These are the very best games that you can play with your friends on the same iPhone or iPad. There'll be jostling, there'll be laughter, and there'll be no arguing that technology isn't capable of bringing us all much closer together. As is the way of things with short lists, you might think that we've missed some stuff out. That's fine, we accept we're not perfect. But do let us know in…

The top 5 best Voodoo and Ketchapp-style hyper-casual games for mobile

There are times when big games can get to be too much. You need to remember books-worth of story, figure out what all the buttons do, and try and find plenty of time to set aside to play them. That's why hyper-casual games come in. Within seconds you can be playing a game, and within minutes you'll be racking up highscores. But what are the best hyper-casual games for mobile? There are so many of them out there, clogging up every pore of the App Store, that sometimes picking one can feel like more of a chore than playing one. Which is where this list comes in. We reckon these five are, if not the best, certainly among the best quick-fire, one-finger arcade games that you can pick up right…

The 5 best JRPGs that you can download for mobile

Yesterday we looked at the best RPGs for mobile. You might have noticed that there were some pretty obvious omissions in that list. And that's because today we're going to look at the very best JRPGs for mobile. If you don't know, that J is for Japanese. These games are pretty different to their Western counterparts, and you could consider this list both a history lesson in JRPG gaming, and a break down of all the games you should be playing if you really want to understand the genre. Sure, it's a Square-heavy list, but since the master of the genre is releasing so many games on the App Store, that was always going to be the way. We'd love to hear your suggestions, especially if you think…

Put up your dukes! No, no it's fine, you don't really have to do that. In fact, the human race simply doesn't need to fight anymore, since we can do all of our pugilism via the medium of games.

Here's our list of the 5 best strategy games for mobile
