The week is coming to an inevitable and somewhat unceremonious end. We're all tired, we all smell a bit, and we'd quite like the weekend to turn up so we can spend 48 hours in bed. Crying.

But if you want something to do in the brief moments of respite when the sadness isn't leaking out of your face, what are your options? I mean, you've got loads, but here at AppSpy we concentrate on the mobile gaming side of things.

So here's a list of the five best iOS games that came out this week, with links to go and do a download of them. If you make it through Saturday and Sunday, pop back and see us next week. We got your back.

Dungeon Rushers - £4.99 / $4.99

A clever, really well written dungeon trawling RPG. Build up your team of loot-hungry warriors and delve into a variety of caverns to nick everything that's not bolted down.

It looks lovely, it's got a few tricks up its sleeve, and there's a massive amount of content here. Thick and juicy, this is the sort of game we need more of on mobile.

Djinn Caster - £4.99 / $4.99

An action RPG with a bit of a twist. It's got the usual summons and slashes, but it's got a middle-eastern feel to its characters and story.

The shape of the game underneath everything is pretty familiar, but it's well put together. If you're a fan of classic ARPGs then you're going to lap this one up.

Wobblers – Free

An interesting blend of the subtle and the chaotic. You're controlling a platform that's moving up the screen, and you need to keep one or more of the titular critters balanced on it.

It's a lot harder than it sounds. There are loads of challenges to complete here, and they keep the game fresh for longer than you might imagine.

The Warlock of Firetop Mountain - £4.99 / $4.99

A brilliant mashing together of a gamebook and a single player boardgame. Work your way to the top of an evil magician's ominous abode, making choices and fighting monsters.

If you find gamebooks a little on the sedate side, then this is definitely going to change your mind. Fun, fresh, and lovely to look at.

MUL.MASH.TAB.BA.GAL.GAL - £2.99 / $2.99

Yup, it's really called that. Nope, I don't know why either. Despite the silly name, this is actually an intriguing take on Pong.

Bounce things between paddles on the left and right of the screen, smashing critters that are making their way up the screen as you do. Challenging and unique, it's a great twist on a classic.
