How is it Thursday again? Feels like only yesterday I was typing up the last list of awesome games for you, our charming and erudite readers, to pick a game of the week from. But here we are, caught in the neverending ebb and flow of time, picking another five awesome games that have come out over the last seven days.

We're all here now though, and we can reveal that last week's game of the week award goes to the lovely Hungry Dragon from Ubisoft. Yes, it's a bit of a reskinning of another successful game, but if you dig deeper you'll find a lot more to Hungry Dragon than that. Here's why we think it's a worthy winner.

This week we've got sports, donuts, ravenous mythical creatures, and a game where you actually have to go outside into the real world. And we reckon each and every one of them is worthy of nabbing this week's award.

But it doesn't matter what we think, for once, because this time it's all down to you. Voting couldn't be simpler - all you need to do is leave a comment at the bottom of the article.

Powerless is the winner of this week's 148Apps game of the week award

Posted by Harry Slater on August 28th, 2018

Well, we've run the numbers, and we can now reveal that this week's game of the week, as voted for by you, the readers of 148Apps, is Powerless by Narratio. It actually was a close run thing this week, but we sent the figures to Strasbourg and the independent panel of experts there verified our choice. Seriously, that happened.

Powerless is a narrative experience focusing on a world where the power has been shut down. It's got a lot of really interesting stuff going for it, and we reckon it's a deserving winner of the shiny and hypothetical award we hand out every week.

Has it really been a week since the last time we met to discuss the finest games of the last seven days? I guess it must have been, because it's Thursday again, and we're typing up a list of five games for you to pick our game of the week from. Doesn't time fly when time is flying, eh?

We're going to be honest, it's not a vintage week for iOS gaming. But that doesn't mean there aren't some great experiences waiting for you out there, it just means that we had to dig a little deeper in order to find them for you. And now it's your turn to return the favour by placing your vote.

How do you do that? Well you can leave a comment on this article stating which game you'd like to win. You can send us a tweet with your pick on the Twitter using the hashtag #148GOW, or you can let us know on Facebook. After the weekend we'll count up the votes and let you know who's won. Sound fair? Cool. On with the choices then.

Bendy in Nightmare Run is the deserved winner of our game of the week award

Posted by Harry Slater on August 21st, 2018

Normally we play these announcements out a little but, acting like the vote was close, or that there was some tension among the official panel of judges in Strasbourg about the final decision. Not this week though, because this week we have what one might call a runaway winner.

And that winner is Bendy in Nightmare Run, a game that's all about running away from terrifying cartoon creations that are trying to eat you. And throwing anvils at them. Any game where you can throw an anvil at someone is good in our book.

But there's much more to the game than just chucking heavy metal objects at taxis that have come to life. A lot more, actually.

This week's game of the week is the stealth-tastic Sneak Ops

Posted by Harry Slater on August 14th, 2018

Well it was a tight one this week, but after a count, a recount, and a harried phone call with the game of the week administration in Strasbourg, we can now reveal that the winner of this week's game of the week award is midcore stealth banger, Sneak Ops.

The game sees you making your way through a maze-like structure, hiding from guards, laser trip-wires, and the roving eyes of sentry cameras. It's the stealth game with all of its frippery peeled back, and quite frankly it's pretty darn wonderful.

But why do we think it deserves to win our game of the week award? Not that it's up to us, but there's a damn good reason it's clearly resonated with so many of you.

Numbers and monsters RPG Math and Sorcery has won our game of the week award

Posted by Harry Slater on August 8th, 2018

We've counted up all the votes, sent them off to the court of arbitration in Strasbourg and had them vetted by an independent panel of retired judges and this guy we know who said he was real honest. I tell you all of this so when I announce the winner of the game of the week award, you know that the result is infallible.

It's Math and Sorcery, by the way. A game all about, wait for it, Math and Sorcery. But don't let that get you down, because there's so much to enjoy in both the mathematical and dark-arts departments here that it'd be churlish to complain.
