Whether you like it or not, we've reached the end of another week. Some of us have done things, some of us have done stuff, some of us have spent too much time asleep on their sofa. But it's done with now. We'll turn over a new leaf on Monday, right?

Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And it's been a pretty sparkly week for mobile gaming all told. We got some ports, we got some exclusives, and everything that came out, for the most part, was pretty darn good.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've spotted anything else you think should be on the list, it'd be nice if you stuck it in the comments down there are the bottom of the hot content.

The Talos Principle

The super slick first person puzzler game finally gets to the App Store. It's every bit as intriguing on your phone or tablet, although it is pretty resource intensive. The controls translate pretty well, and while it might not be a perfect port, for just a fiver it's pretty hard to complain.

Into the Dead 2

Zombies! Zombies are trying to eat your brains. Do not let them eat your precious, precious brains. This auto-running FPS sequel is just as interesting as its predecessor. Peg it through a series of fields dodging the attention of the undead and picking up sweet ammo to load your weapons with. It looks good, it plays well, and it's a lot of fun.

Train Bandit

A two-touch wild west train robbery simulator. You're beset by enemies to the left and right, and you need to tap to attack them. That's about it. You're chasing your high score, and trying to master the speedy action. It's not going to change the world, but it'll keep your brain interested for a good few hours.

Dragon Hills 2

Another auto-runner. This one's a bit different though. You're swooping through levels, like in Tiny Wings, but you're on the back of a giant dragon. It might not be the most original game in the world, but there's so much going on here that you're not going to mind. It's like a warm hug. A warm hug from a dragon.

Smash Up

A card game with a difference. You're not building a deck, you're shuffling one together at the start. Pick two factions and then try and smash up bases before your foes. It's an intriguing and engaging experience, and there's a lot of depth when you get into things. Also you can team up zombies and dinosaurs, which is pretty darn cool.
