The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - March 17th

By , on March 17, 2017

Oh what a week it's been. No, seriously, I think this might have been the best game for iPhone and iPad games in a very long time. There have been some real classics-in-waiting out this week, and that makes my job quite a lot easy.

Well, sort of, because I've had to cut the list of really good games down to just five for this list. Don't worry though, I've managed it, because that's the sort of professional, content-focused writer I am. No, really, it is.

You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you have to choose just one, well I'd suggest not choosing just one and getting all of them. No, seriously, they're all flippin' great.

Golf, but not as we know it. Part hardcore platformer, part bullet-time infused chip and putt, all beautiful insanity. Super tough in places, but with a great aesthetic and a compulsion loop that pushes you to keep trying until that ball goes in the hole.

Imagine of Square Enix's GO games taking places on a Rubik's Cube, and you're about half way to getting to grips with this clever puzzling adventure. Move yourself and the levels, attack guards, and try to figure out the best way to get to the exit.

The Big Journey - £1.99 / $1.99

Play as an adorable cat on a quest for dumplings. You roll around the screen, twonking enemies with your big cat butt, and trying to stuff as many tasty treats into your gob as you can. It's sort of like Badland meets Man vs Food, but with a cat.
