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

By , on April 7, 2017

Oh look, it's the end of the week. How on earth did that happen? I have literally no idea. Well, I have some inkling, but it's not enough to base a hypothesis on just yet.

What was I talking about? Oh yeah, Friday. Every Friday here at AppSpy we like to break down for you the five best games that came out on the App Store this week. And that's exactly what I'm going to do right now.

As per usual, click on the emboldened name of a game below and you'll be taken to the App Store where you can download it. Won't that be exciting for you, you little scamps.

Cell 13 - £2.99 / $2.99

A clever puzzling platformer that plays around with portals. And holes. And switches. And a bunch of other things. It's simple to look at, but there's a lot going on under the hood if you're willing to dig into its robotic underbelly.

Drop Not! - Free

A game about rolling along a path. The only controls you have involve tapping the screen to change the direction you're rolling in. And strangely enough it works really well. Throw in checkpoints and score multipliers and you've got yourself an entertaining little diversion.

Quantum Revenge - £2.99 / $2.99

A pretty straightforward twin stick shooter. Fly through space cutting down waves of enemies with your super-powered mecha bot thing. It looks okay, it plays okay, and while it doesn't shake the foundations of the genre, it's still fun.

This one's a platformer set during the French revolution. It's up to you to try and change history by saving the king from the guillotine. It's stylish and it's pretty darn slick. One for history buffs and platform fans alike.

Transformers: Forged to Fight

Stomp and whomp your way through this free to play brawler starring everyone's favourite robots in disguise. There's a lot of screen mashing and a lot of fan service, but the violence is clunking in all the right ways. Plus robots y'all. Freakin' robots.
