Welcome, one and all, to Friday. If you've never had a Friday before, here's a brief run-down. It's the last day of the working week, and everyone looks forward to it with the grim determination of prisoners looking forward to the hour they get to spend outside.

It also means that here on AppSpy we get to round up the best games that came out this week. So that's pretty exciting. And it's been a mammoth ol' week for games coming out on the App Store. They haven't all been dross either.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to swoop off to the App Store and pick them up. And if you think we've missed anything out, then whack your suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. Whack them I say!

Time Crash

What would happen if you turned Mirror's Edge into a slick one-finger auto-runner? Well it'd probably be something like Time Crash. Sprint through gorgeous looking levels pulling off parkour moves with taps and swipes. It's not perfect, but when it gets things right it's an awful lot of fun.

Tales of the Rays

It's a tales game, but it's for mobile. Expect a deep and engaging RPG adventure that sees you exploring dungeons, grabbing treasure, and generally doing all the things you'd expect from a Tales game. It looks lovely, and it's filled with characters you may well recognise from other Tales games.

Galaxy of Pen and Paper

Subscribe to AppSpy on

A game within a game. You're playing a tabletop sci-fi RPG, but the actions are happening in front of you, like a turn-based RPG. And the whole thing is really rather brilliant. Warm, funny, and chock full of the sort of content that RPG fans are going to absolutely love. And it's a premium app as well.

Vista Golf

A pretty simple crazy golf game with a few good ideas and some brilliantly designed courses. There's loads to do here, and the sensitivity of the stroke play means you're going to have to think about each shot that you make. Plus there's going to be regular course updates, so you'll always have something to try and putt.

Neo Scavenger

A super tough roguelike that is going to kill you. And it's going to kill you often. You'll bleed to death. You'll freeze to death. You'll get infections and die. There's a lot of dying going on here. But if you like your survival challenges super tough, and you don't mind a few fiddly menus, you're going to absolutely love this one.
