These are definitely the 5 best zombie games for mobile

Like it or not, the undead are everywhere. Not literally, because that would be absolutely terrifying. But if you pick up any sort of pop-culture entertainment nowadays, chances are it's going to have zombies in it one way or another. And the same is true on the App Store too. In fact the App Store might have more zombies-per-unit (ZPU, the standard zombie counting algorithm) than anywhere else. So we thought it was high-time to take a look at all those flesh-craving monsters and decide which five mobile games featuring the undead are the best. It's these five. So there you go.

What are the 5 best word games for mobile?

Love them or loathe them, you can't argue that word games don't fit brilliantly onto mobile devices. Done right they can be exactly the sort of jump-in-jump-out puzzlers that work so well when you're on the go. So we thought it was high time that we had a good long look at the very best word games that you can pick up on the App Store right now. We've picked five that we think really represent the cream of the crop, the sort of games that are going to make you learn without you even knowing it. If you've got your own suggestions then feel free to chuck them in the comments at the bottom of the article, but for now let's drop all this preamble and dive straight into the most vocabulary-heav…

These are the 5 best platform games for mobile

What's the best platform game on iOS? It's a question you've probably pondered time and time again, trying to figure out the right answer. Maybe you've gone to a shaman to try and figure it out, or read the secrets hidden in tea leaves in order to get some sort of answer. Well, quite frankly that's silly. What you should have done is waited for us to write this list. But we have written this list now, and you can read it with your eyes holes. You're welcome.

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - January 5th

We've got to the end of the first week of the year. I expect your hangovers have finally subsided now, and you're back neck deep in the drudgery of your 9 to 5 existence. Ah well, it's the weekend now, two days to sit around and recover enough energy to survive for the five days after. But there's still time for a little bit more content. And that content is here, in the shape of a round up of the best games that came out this week on the App Store. It's not been the best week ever, but then that's only to be expected really. And technically we're covering about a week and a half, but that's not the point. Still, there's a decent enough line up here. As usual you can click on the emboldene…

Everything you need to know about Antihero for iPhone and iPad

Feels like only yesterday it was Wednesday. Probably because it was. Now it's Thursday, and that means it's time to give you the low down on the one new game on the App Store that you should definitely be playing this week. It's fair to say that it hasn't been the most exciting week for releases, but that's always the case in the post Christmas lull. Still, there has been some wheat among the chaff, including the really rather excellent game I'm going to recommend to you today. As usual, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you'd like to share your own, no doubt very deep and meaningful, thoughts, feel free to do it in the comments section at the bottom of…

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - January 3rd

The tree is down, the presents you didn't like have all been returned or thrown into the bin, and now we're back to trudging through the misery of winter without a single thing to look forward to. Well there might be things to look forward to, like wasting your money on things you don't really need. Which is good, because Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. There are some surprisingly good new deals out there, so much so that I actually had to pick which ones to talk about rather than just picking the first five semi-decent games I saw. You can poke the emboldened name of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've se…

Welcome back to the ninth chunk of our look back at the best games that came out on the App Store this year. We're into September. The leaves are starting to change colour.

And we're up to August 2017 in our round-up of the best games of the year. August was warm. Or it might have been cold. I don't really remember. It was a long time ago, a lot has happened since then. I think I spent most of the month asleep in hotels. Anyway, you can click below to check out the rest of the parts of this series. I hope you do, I've put a lot of work into this.

We're over half way through our round-up of the best games that came out in 2017. It's July now, you were probably wearing sunglasses in July. I wore sunglasses for the entirety of July. It made doing my work very difficult. You can find the rest of the months we've covered below. Tomorrow it'll be August. It's my birthday in August. I very much doubt that that's going to make it onto the list, but who knows? Stranger things have happened.
