Thursday is the day when most games come out on the App Store. So every week we like to spend Thursday telling you what the best of those games is. In a way we're providing a wonderful service, since it means you don't have to play anything rubbish in order to find the gems that have landed on iOS over the past seven days.
This week we've got a shooter, a twitchy arcade racer that features giant worms, and one of the strangest auto-runners that we've ever had the privilege of playing. Of course, with this being a pretty short list, there's a chance we've missed something out. If you think that's the case, then do let us know your own suggestions in the comments section at the bottom of the article.
Click here and you can check out what we thought were the best games that came out last week. And now, without any further words (except these ones), let's look at the three best games that came out for iPad and iPhone this week.
Frag: Pro Shooter
To all intents and purposes, this one is a midcore take on Overwatch. It's a team-based shooter, with different characters making up the teams, but the twist is it's one player per team. Your other characters are controlled by the AI, but you can jump between them to use all the tactics at your disposal. Throw in perfectly sized mobile play times, and there's a very real chance this could be one of the biggest hits of the year.
Rest in Pieces
Whereas the first game on this list is pretty straightforward, Rest in Pieces is really weird. It's an auto-runner, except you're not running, you're being dragged by a string towards a terrifying monster. You need to tap to swing, judging how far you need to go not just to avoid the next obstacle, but to be ready for the next one as well. And that's much easier said than done.
Another game with auto-movement, but this one offers up a twitchy arcade experience. Life and death here are only pixels apart, and the more you play the more you're going to realise that. There's a clever jump feature here that let's you get much farther than you might think possible, and almost all of the action will have you sat fixedly on the edge of your seat.
