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.

There are some surprises on the list, and since it's been such a good week for games on the App Store, there's a good chance that you're going to think we've missed something out. But that's life, we can't pick every game. And trust us when we say we stressed and fretted about what was going to make it onto the list until the wee small hours.

But how do you pick a winner? Well it's incredibly easy. All you need to do is leave a comment at the bottom of the article with the name of the game you'd like to win. Or you can tweet us your answer with the hashtag #148GOW, or leave as a comment on our Facebook page. It really couldn't be simpler.

If you're interested to see what other games our readers have picked as their games of the week, click here and you'll be able to find out. Or, if you'd prefer, let's get on with this week's options.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions - download for iOS

After the pretty good The Horus Heresy: Legions, it's time for another card game set in one of Games Workshops' made up universes. This time it's the turn of the swords and magic side of things to come to the fore, and the end result is actually pretty special.

Why we think you'll like it: Because unlike a lot of other mobile card games that just try to out-Hearthstone Hearthstone, Age of Sigmar: Champions plays by its own rules. There's some interesting card-movement strategy, plenty of twists to the formula, and even more to discover and do.

Chaos Reborn: Adventures - download for iOS

It's fair to say that this one has got some pedigree behind it. Designed by the creator of the original XCOM, it's all about leading a wizard and their magically-powered minions into battle. There are shades of MOBAs, strategy games, and more here.

Why we think you'll like it: Chaos Reborn: Adventures is an expensive game, for sure, but it's also a massive one. It manages to be welcoming as well, with some solid tutorials that cover the basics. Then you've got a huge mix of single player, multiplayer, and everything in between to smoosh your face into.

Bike Unchained 2 - download for iOS

It's strange how few games have taken the Tiny Wings formula and tried it out in a different way. But that's exactly what Bike Unchained does. It's all about bezzing down the mountain side on your two wheeled death machine, pulling off jumps and slick landings as you do.

Why we think you'll like it: Because what's not to like about shooting as fast as you can down large slopes, all the while perfectly safe from harm? There's a load to do and collect here, and the fact you're always playing against the ghosts of other people adds an extra frisson to proceedings.

Enigma Express - download for iOS

It's not very often that a hidden object game catches our eye here at 148Apps, but we're always happy to make an exception. And that's exactly what Enigma Express is. Part of the Murder Files series, it's a charmingly twee experience that's also got a decent amount of challenge.

Why we think you'll like it: It might not be the most original game in the world, and if you're not a fan of the genre then it's unlikely you're going to find a lot to like here. But there's a freshness to proceedings that makes the game stand out from the crowd. Plus it's not all gothic and moody like hidden object games all have to be nowadays.

Meowoof - download for iOS

A dog and a cat get in a fight. During that fight they become entangled in rope and find that they're now attached to one another. Then their owner disappears. So, said cat and dog have to go on an adventure through their weird house in order to get some food. And maybe save their owner, although that's definitely not their main goal.

Why we think you'll like it: This is a simple, one-touch arcade game that builds everything on top of a simple mechanic. Only the cat or the dog stands still at one time, the other swinging around on the rope that binds them. You tap, and they swap. There are shades of Nitrome here, but also some intriguing ideas that mean you're always on your toes.
