The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - July 6th

By , on July 7, 2017

Well, it's Friday, and thanks to the magic of the internet, while I'm currently wandering around some hills looking at rocks, I'm still able to toss some wonderful content in the direction of your excited little faces.

As usual, we're rounding up the five best games that have come out on the App Store this week. It's been a pretty good week all in, although I don't know if I'd call it a classic. Would you call it a classic? I don't know, I can't ready your mind.

Anyway, you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to head over to the App Store and download them. And feel free to chuck your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. You know, if that's the sort of thing you like to do.

Mini Day Z

A squished down survival game that sees you trying to not die on a series of islands that are full of zombies. It's not just the undead that will dead you though, you need to keep an eye on your hunger, thirst, and warmth levels too. A big game in a small package.

Drop Wizard Tower

A smart roguelike reimagining of an already excellent arcade game. Make your way through 50 levels, booping bad guys and trying to stay alive. Your character gets stronger the further you go, and there are massive boss fights to take on as well.

Battlezone 98 Redux

One of the classics of the strategy genre. A super tough, super involving game of tanks, massive weapons, and trying to figure out what on eart is going on. There's so much depth here you might get lost. This one's for iPad only.

Color Magnet

A match-stuff puzzler with an interesting magnetic twist. Suck up colours to make massive connections. There are puzzles to solve, and a couple of different modes to sink your teeth into. Slick, and definitely worth a look if you're a puzzle game fan.

A mix of platformer, flappy game, and adventure. It's smarter than it looks, and while at first glance you might think it's a knock off of some other games, dig a little deeper and you'll actually find a pretty darn rewarding experience.
