One of our jobs here at Pocket Gamer is to dig through the hundreds of apps that hit the App Store and Google Play every single day and unearth those glittering gems.
Lately, though, we've been letting you have YOUR say, too, by giving you the opportunity to tell us your favourite game from a shortlist of the week's best releases.
This week's votes have been counted (and recounted), and we have a winner: Talisman Prologue HD.
Talisman Prologue HD is a digital recreation of the classic Games Workshop boardgame, pared down and streamlined to form a unique single-player adventure.
That's right - it's a boardgame that you play on your own. With ten different classes to master, from the deadly assassin to the balding monk, and more than 50 quest to complete, Talisman Prologue HD offers a lot of magical bang for your buck.
There are perils aplenty awaiting you in your adventure, including fearsome trolls, towering giants, and the ever-worrying possibility that a bad dice roll could turn you into a slimy toad.
When we reviewed Talisman Prologue HD we said, "It's an engaging translation of the boardgame and there's still a thrill as you watch the dice spin, fingers crossed that they land in your favour."
And it looks like you agreed with us, as the game was the runaway winner of our poll this week, with only Fieldrunners 2 for Android getting anywhere near it.
You can grab Talisman Prologue HD for £2.99 / $4.99 from the App Store [buy] or from the Google Play Store [buy].
