The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - October 6th

Friday is happening. Friday is happening all around us. There's nothing anyone can do about it, so let's just roll with the punches and see what happens. This crazy rollercoaster ride is going to have to come to an end at some point, whether we want it to or not.

If you'd like some entertainment while the carriages shoot up and down though, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out this week on the App Store. Quite frankly it's a bit of an odd week, but bear with me because I think there's some decent games to be found if you're willing to persevere.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got your own suggestions about what should be included, feel free to whack them in the comments section all the way down there at the bottom of the content. Stay fresh.


There's a lot to be said for flipping hyper-powered cars off the end of ramps. And Rekt understands that. It's a simple game, but there's a lot going on here if you really want to master the spins and skids you need to get the best scores. It's silly, it's entertaining, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Really, what's not to like?

Eminence: Xander's Tales

A midcore deck building game that doesn't have the mechanical complexity of the likes of Hearthstone, but is perfectly built for quick-fire mobile play. Essentially it's a mix between tic-tac-toe and Magic: The Gathering. But a lot better than that makes it sound. Definitely worth checking out.

Yeah, I know it's a movie tie-in, but this is one of two big surprises this week. It's basically a GO game with a different theme layered on top of it, but it's really well put together and actually quite a lot of fun.

Stranger Things: The Game

Another tie-in, this time with the Netflix series of the same name. The game itself is a retro-tastic adventure set in the town where most of the series plays out. It's endearing, it's smart when it needs to be, and it won't cost you a single shiny penny to pick it up and give it a go.

Dragon Project

Fancy a free to play, more grind-heavy Monster Hunter on your mobile? Well then you're in luck, because that's exactly what Dragon Project offers. It's not perfect, it's got some problems, but the sheer thrill of bringing down a giant monster with your team of intrepid explorers is pretty difficult to beat.
