I picked up Ending on a whim while lazing around in the sun over the weekend.
After an hour of battling my way past monochrome-coloured baddies and slowly but surely learning the mechanics of every possible encounter, I was well and truly hooked.
If nothing else, discovering this largely unheralded puzzler demonstrates that the lucky dip approach works.
You play as a lone @ symbol, living in a world of crazy plunger things, disc baddies, and many other random pixellated objects that all seem to have a single agenda: your destruction.
As you swipe the screen to move in a turn-based fashion, these enemies hunt you down and attempt to trap you in corners. If you can time your movements right, you can slide up next to them and kill them by slamming into them.
Ending is one of the best roguelike puzzle games currently available on mobile, with action that will excite both newcomers and veterans alike
