Oh look, Friday is here. Hello Friday. How are you? Eating all your greens? What's that? You're already drunk. Well you should be careful, you don't want a reputation as a booze hound. No, don't stick that smashed glass in my face. NO! STOP!

While I wait for the ambulance of the weekend, I suppose I'll write up the five bests games that came out on mobile this week. It's been an alright week if you like gaming on the go, although I doubt it'll go down in history. Because, well, that would be ridiculous.

Anyway, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got any games you think should be included on the list, stick them in the comments below.

Tiny Defense 2

A side-on tower defence sequel with a few tricks up its sleeve. It's not revolutionary, but if you're a fan of the genre you're going to enjoy everything the game has to offer. It's well put together, there's a lot to sink your teeth into, and you'll have a smile on your face for most of the time you're playing.

Miracle Merchant

A card game that's all about mixing up potions and not eviscerating your customers. Throw down some cards, make some drinks, and try and get rid of all of your deck. There's plenty going on here, and there's even more to discover. It's a change of pace from Card Thief, but it's a welcome addition to the story.

Neo Angle

A puzzler about shifting triangles around. It's smart, and the neon stylings are going to set it apart from the rest of the field. There are some neat ideas here, and while it's not the most difficult game out there, it will have you scratching your head from time to time.

Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop!?!

A brilliant midcore, premium strategy game. You're running a weapon shop, deciding what to make and who to sell it to. It's warm, it's funny, and there's a huge amount to get done. Plus you get a potato dog to hang out with. And that, quite frankly, is the best sentence I've ever typed.

Egglia: Legend of the Redcap

A massive JRPG with loads of things to do. There's houses to decorate, monsters to fight, and all manner of other things to get up to. It's been out in Japan for a while, and it's from some of the developers behind the Kingdom Hearts series. So yeah, give it a go.
