The 3 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - July 14th

Look, let's be honest, it's not been that good a week for mobile games. There are some okay ones, one really great one, and an awful lot of dross. With that in mind, I'm only going to recommend three games to you, because quite frankly you should save your money for when something good comes out.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. Once you've done that, we'll sack the rest of the week off and reconvene on Monday, when hopefully some good games come out and we can put all of this horror behind us.

Motorsport Manager 2

Basically, this is one of the best sims you're going to play this year. Full of interesting features, knife edge tension, and plenty of menus to look at while stroking your metaphorical simulation beard. Take charge of a racing team, make all the big decisions, and try to get to the front of the grid. Slick, brilliantly presented, and more fun than it has any right to be.

Minecraft Story Mode Season 2

Telltale's block rocking narrative adventure returns with a decent, if not exactly wonderful episode. There are some laughs here, and things look like they're getting set up nicely for the upcoming episodes. And, I mean, you can't really play the second episode without having played the first. Plus it's exactly as polished as you'd expect it to be.

Splashy Dots

For some reason, a puzzle game about swiping paint blobs around the screen is actually one of the most interesting games to come out this week. You're drawing lines through a series of coloured patches, and while it starts off pretty simple, eventually you'll get to scratching your head. It's not the best puzzle game you'll ever have played, but it is pretty darn good.
