Has it really been a week since the last time we met to discuss the finest games of the last seven days? I guess it must have been, because it's Thursday again, and we're typing up a list of five games for you to pick our game of the week from. Doesn't time fly when time is flying, eh?
We're going to be honest, it's not a vintage week for iOS gaming. But that doesn't mean there aren't some great experiences waiting for you out there, it just means that we had to dig a little deeper in order to find them for you. And now it's your turn to return the favour by placing your vote.
How do you do that? Well you can leave a comment on this article stating which game you'd like to win. You can send us a tweet with your pick on the Twitter using the hashtag #148GOW, or you can let us know on Facebook. After the weekend we'll count up the votes and let you know who's won. Sound fair? Cool. On with the choices then.
Summit Way - download for iOS
There aren't enough games that are about mountains, in our opinion, but Summit Way is definitely a step in the right direction. It's a puzzler that sees you trying to connect mountain-tops together, but there's a lot more going on here than you might first think.
Why we think you'll like it: Because there are plenty of strategic elements going on here as well. You're managing resources, avoiding cannons, and trying to keep the towns on and around the mountains happy. Plus there's a calming aesthetic that means even when things get challenging you're not too stressed.
Powerless - download for iOS
Games that tell new and interesting stories are becoming more and more vital as the world changes. Powerless is a smart, mature game about what we might do if all of the power in the world was suddenly turned off. Can humans still live together in the dark?
Why we think you'll like it: Because it tells an important story, and makes you look at the world in new and interesting ways. There's a diverse cast of characters here, and a narrative that never quite heads in the direction you think it's going to.
What's Cooking? - download for iOS
There's something eminently charming about What's Cooking that makes it incredibly difficult to dislike. It's not the most difficult game in the world, not by a long shot, but there's a deliberate and lovely pace that's going to keep you coming back for more.
Why we think you'll like it: Like we said, it's pretty difficult not to like this one. But alongside the big heart there's a really interesting mix of mini-games. Find ingredients, whip up interesting meals, and build up your restaurant empire.
Tanks a Lot - download for iOS
There's nothing we like better than a pun here at 148Apps, but when that pun is backed up with some perfectly shaped mobile multiplayer action, well we're basically powerless to resist. And that pretty much sums up why Tanks a Lot has made it onto this week's list.
Why we think you'll like it: Well, there's the pun for one thing. But even without that Tanks a Lot would be well worth checking out. It's a 3v3 battler that's got some of the shape of a MOBA, but stripped back to simple slaughter. Short games, big fun.
Mighty Army: World War 2 - download for iOS
Another multiplayer shooter, but this time with a good deal more going on. Mighty Army offers up some cartoonish World War 2 blasting that's actually pretty damn slick. It's easy to jump in and out, and there's always someone to shoot.
Why we think you'll like it: It might look like there are too many buttons in Mighty Army, but actually the controls are pretty slick. There's a sharpness to the play that a lot of other squad-based shooters don't have, and plenty of enjoyment to be sucked out of the short but sweet fights.
