It's Thursday, which means that most of the new games that are going to come out this week, have come out. There's loads of them, as ever, so we've picked what we think are the three best that have landed on the App Store over the past seven days. And we think we've got a trio of proper smashers for you this week.

If you like shooting, escaping, or the painful drudgery of the working world, then there's going to be something here for you. We've got a port, and two games that are making their debut on the App Store. And all three are an awful lot of fun.

Since this is such a short list, there's a chance we've missed your favorite game off. Don't get angry though, just let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the article - after all, we all love mobile gaming.

You can click here to check out some of the other awesome lists we've been writing as well. They're all really good, but then we would say that. Right then, on with our pick of the top games for iPhone and iPad that came out this week.

A top-down, multiplayer shooter with some really good ideas. You can only see as far as you can aim, for one thing, and the scraps are perfectly paced for a quick mobile blast. Every game you'll earn a bit more and strengthen up your soldier and, perhaps most importantly, every game you're going to have a proper good time. Quite frankly we don't know what more you'd want from a pocket-sized game.

The Escapists 2: Pocket Breakout

The sequel to one of our favorite games about escaping from prison. Actually, it's the only game we can think of about escaping from prison. Anyway, this sequel is everything you want from the second bite of the cherry - it's bigger, it's brighter, and the new ideas it layers through the experience are more than enough to keep even the most seasoned Escapists players sated.

Gigco: Escape the gig Economy

While the other games on the list are pretty massive, this one offers a much smaller experience. It's about moving boxes from one conveyor belt to the next, avoiding robots as you do. Miss the deadline and your job will be taken over by a machine. There's a lot to like here, and the game has a lot to say about the misery of modern working conditions. It just happens to say it using a quick-fire arcade tapping mechanic that's painfully compulsive.
