Meow Wars - download for iOS

A smart and adorable card game that's almost literally packed to the rafters with feline friends. Sure they're soldiers, but they're cute and fuzzy soldiers, so what's not to like about that?

Why we think you'll like it: Well, there's the cats for starters. But underneath all that cuteness there's a decent little card game with some clever tricks. Multiplayer is the heart of the experience too, so you're going to be using your kitties to take on all-comers.

Sneak Ops - download for iOS

Mobile stealth done with the charm and brain-smarts of a Nitrome game? Yeah we're definitely into that. Sneak Ops is a breath of arcade fresh air in a genre that sometimes gets bogged down in its own importance.

Why we think you'll like it: This is stealth deconstructed, with all the faff pared away, and a slick experience is left behind. Dodge cameras and guards in bite-sized chunks of hide-and-sneak gameplay. It's brilliant, and it's the perfect fit for mobile.

Escape From Chernobyl - download for iOS

Surviving seems to be all the rage nowadays, and Escape From Chernobyl welcomes that with open arms. This isn't the lonely Chernobyl of the real world, it's the zombie-filled, you're going to die, oh my god what's that, digital version.

Why we think you'll like it: Because it's filled to the brim with undead monsters, there are plenty of scares, but a decent challenge too. Oh, and the game looks pretty special as well. Nothing like HD zombie wounds to get you in the mood for running away.

Kings and Assassins - download for iOS

A digital board game from the folks at Asmodee Digital, but with an interesting asymetrical twist. Pick a side, and then try and either depose or protect a king who isn't exactly well liked by the people he rules over.

Why we think you'll like it: This one doesn't mess about when it comes to feeling fresh. The fact that the two sides play differently means you've got a variety of different things to learn in order to succeed. Plus the game looks great, and it's definitely not as nerdy as some other recent Asmodee releases.

Task Attack - download for iOS

God it's awful having to do things, isn't it? Task Attack understands that, so rather than being a simple arcade shooter, it's a simple arcade shooter that sees you destroying all of the annoying things that grown-up life tends to throw at you.

Why we think you'll like it: Essentially you're getting an interesting shooter and a decent stress reliever in one package. The shooting might not be the most elegant in the world, but the fact you're blowing up all the chores you hate doing adds a surprisingly cathartic feeling to proceedings.
