It's Friday. We've made it. Well done everyone, you should all be very proud of what we've achieved in the last few days. You've earned the hangover you're probably going to have tomorrow. But make sure you're well rested, because we start the whole awful process again on Monday.

In the meantime though, if you're looking for some mobile entertainment for the weekend, we've rounded up the five best games that hit the App Store this week. Essentially we've made deciding much much easier for you.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you've spotted another game you think deserves to go on the list, feel free to chuck it in the comments below and let everyone know about it. No point keeping secrets.

Swing King and The Temple of Bling

A one-touch arcade adventure that sees you swinging around rocks and catapulting yourself towards coins and walls. It's super easy to play, and it gets the right kind of difficult at the right kind of speed.

All That Remains: Part 1

A gloomy point-and-click adventure that's all about solving puzzles and getting out of a bunker. It gets a lot of stuff right, and there's an interesting story bubbling along in the background too. Certainly sets things up well for the next part.

A platformer that's all about collecting the shattered pieces of a totem pole. You do it by controlling two different little creatures. They react at the same time when you push the buttons, so you need to think through every leap.
