It's been quite the week, but now that all of that business is out of the way, it's time to hunker down with some of the excellent games that were released over the past few days. There's a fair few to help you relax in your down time or if you're travelling out and about and need some distraction. Let's get to it.

TypeShift

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2017-03-18 :: Category: Game

FREE!


Typeshift launched last weekend and caused quite a stir. It's another brilliantly designed word game from Zach Gage, who also brought us Spelltower. TypeShift has that same signature style, but this time around you're shifting letters around to create multiple anagrams in a single line of letters. This isn't one to miss, even if you're not keen on word games.

Death Road to Canada

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2017-03-22 :: Category: Game

$8.99


Death Road to Canada sees you dashing to the Canadian border to escape the zombie apocalypse. It's essentially a gorier version of the Oregon Trail, but with heaps of humor. Surviving is tough, but on the off chance that you do make it, you'll feel as relieved as if you were walking the titular death road yourself.

Faeria

iPad App - Designed for iPad
Released: 2017-03-08 :: Category: Game

FREE!


Faeria is a mutliplayer card game much like Hearthstone. The twist here is that players are separated by a vast ocean, and the only way to do battle is to build the battlefield up yourself. You can place land tiles of varying terrain types, which, as you can guess, adds some interesting strategy when the cards come into play. It's something fresh in a genre that has become overpopulated as of late.

The Big Journey

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2017-03-16 :: Category: Game

$1.99


The Big Journey definitely gets the award for cutest game of the week. Your goal is to guide a roly poly kitten through a series of platforming puzzles. You tilt your device to guide your little kitten around the screen. It's not especially challenging, but we're okay with that. It's cute and colorful, and a pleasant diversion when you need it.
