Titanfall: Assault

A brilliant mobile MOBA with plenty of intelligent RTS additions. Lay down cards representing your troops, call forth the power of enormous titans, and generally have a lovely old time. It's like Clash Royale for people who like games, and it's definitely worth checking out.

A super tough platformer that will chew you up, spit you out, and then point and laugh at your mangled remains. It's smart though, and the combinations you'll need to learn to get through the tricky levels will make you feel like a nimble-fingered gaming god.

Cat Quest

A big, chunky RPG that's put together with a lot of heart. And, perhaps more importantly, an awful lot of cat puns. Stomp through a massive cartoon world finishing quests, slaying dragons, and trying to get to the bottom of who kidnapped your sister.

Strike Team Hydra

A big, big turn-based strategy game that sees you leading a squad of space marines into some tricky situations. There's a lot to get your fingers around, but if you're looking for a hardcore, Xcom-style challenge then this is going to be right up your street.

Combat Squad

An FPS with some pretty interesting additions. You can jump between your squad, giving them instructions or taking control of them. There's multiplayer, single player, and lots and lots of equipment to find. It's different, and it works pretty well on your phone.
