The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - September 29th

By , on September 29, 2017

Whichever way you look at it, it's almost certainly Friday. And Friday is when we round up the very best games that have come out on the App Store this week. So let's not beat around the bush, let's just jump head first into it.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think we've missed anything off, feel free to let us know in the comments section all the way down there at the bottom of the article.

AKA To Blue

A slick as all hell bullet-dodging arcade blaster that boasts some of the finest graphics the genre has seen in a long while. It's fun, it's frantic, and there are always plenty of spaceships and tanks for you to blast into bits. It might be tough, but this is one game that's well worth persevering with.

Ticket to Ride: First Journey

A squsihed down version of the classic board game. This one might be targeted at a slightly younger group of players, but don't let that put you off. There's still a slot of fun to be had, and the game acts as a brilliant introduction to the world of digital board games. Oh, and it looks great too.

Modern Combat Versus

Shooty shooty bang bang men. The latest in Gameloft's CoD-aping series has a much clearer focus on multiplayer. This is a game about shooting the digital avatars of real people to death. And you're either going to love it or hate it. But if you're looking for a new multiplayer FPS, this could well be right up your street.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Movie tie-in games are never the most interesting games, but quite frankly this isn't the most interesting week. At least this one has a few tricks up its sleeve, and seems to build on the lore of the games that inspired it too. JRR Tolkien would almost certainly be rolling in his grave if he found out about it, but I'm pretty sure a lot of people are going to love this one.


A platformer controlled with drag-and-release. It's an idea we've seen implemented a few times, and quite often it works really well. This one lso features an endless arcade mode, as well as 50 challenging levels to try and twang your way through. Again, it's not vintage, but it's not going to cost you anything to try it out.
