It's Friday again. The week is spinning towards its ignominious and no doubt messy end. By which I mean it's nearly the weekend and we're all probably going to go out and get real silly. I know I am. Real silly. You know what I mean.

Anyway, there's still the small matter of one more bit of AppSpy content to round off the week in style. And since it's Friday, like it always is on Fridays, that means we're going to round up all the best games that came out on the App Store this week. So that'll be fun.

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 that caught your eye that we've missed, feel free to chuck your suggestions in the comments down there at the bottom of the article. Cool. Cool cool cool.

Warhammer Quest 2

A turn-based dungeon crawler set in the most miserable, monster-riddled corners of the Warhammer world. Build up your party of unlikely adventurers in order to try and save the world from the ravages of chaos. Oh, and get some sweet loot in the process.

It's a game about pushing buttons. But it's actually a lot more interesting than that sounds. You're trying to find all the right bits of a shape hanging in space to poke. It starts pretty simple, but it doesn't take too long before you're swooping around trying to figure out what you need to press to continue. It's a slick puzzler, and it's a lot of fun.

MMM Fingers 2

A game about not letting your fingers get eaten. I mean, not in the real world. You're not going to lose a digit every time you play. Instead you're weaving through spiky monsters trying to get as far as you can. There's a challenge mode and a daily task as well, so there's always something to get done, even if it is just not getting eaten.

Time Recoil

A top-down shooter with a difference. It's got some really smart bullet-time ideas that make the whole thing feel a bit more like a puzzler. Albeit a puzzler that involves murdering an awful lot of people in slow motion. You get a Time Attack mode as well, and that lets you show off your murdering skills on leaderboards.

Campfire Cooking

This one does what it says on the tin. It's all about cooking around a campfire. But it's not as boring as that sounds. This is a relaxing, meditative game about spending time outdoors. You're shuffling food around on the grill to make sure you don't burn anything. It's a problem solving puzzler, and it's a lot of fun.
