Oh thank whoever you like to thank for things, it's the end of the week. We can all curl up for two days and not have to face the horrors of being a grown up or having to put trousers on. What a delight. What a fine gift from our capitalist overlords.
But before we slink away to the safety and comfort of our respective blanket forts, there's time for one more chunk of content. And as it's Friday that means that it's time to round up the best games that have landed on the App Store this week.
As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if there's anything you think I've missed, feel free to stick your own suggestions in the comments all the way down at the bottom of the article.
A wonderfully evocative adventure. It looks gorgeous, presented in slick black and white, and it plays brilliantly. Each level is essentially a puzzle to figure out. There's an intriguing story here as well, and it's well worth sticking with the game all the way to the end.
Retro platforming done remarkably well. Make your way through a series of challenging levels in order to find a cure for your friend. You've got a sword, you've got a gun, and you've got some really slick controls too. It's challenging, but in all the right ways. A perfectly put together mobile leaper.
Sure it might not add that much to the first game, but this is a well preened version of an experience that was already top notch. It's not a platformer in the strictest sense. Instead you control the titular duke as he dashes through a series of tiny, time-limited levels. Fun and fast-paced, there's an awful lot to like here.
A gamebook set in the same universe as the world renowned board game. There's a brilliantly well written story to sink your face into, and some nice ideas as well. It won't be to everyone's tastes, and it's not super original mechanically, but if you like a good yarn expertly told then you're going to love it.
A crazy sports game with a medieval twang. Smash a jester through some flaming hoops to score points. Get to three first otherwise a tentacle monster will eat you. And no one wants that. There are characters to collect and a multiplayer mode too. Well worth checking out if you want some silly fun.
