Wondering what's fresh in the world of mobile gaming? Allow us to explain.
Each week we like to run through the mobile games we've been enjoying the most over the past seven days.
This week sees the return of a much beloved developer in Tiny Touch Tales, as well as the arrival of a fine midcore strategy game (starring potatoes, no less).
Elsewhere, you wait ages for a leftfield triangle-shifting puzzler and two come along in quick succession. If you dug Yankai's Peak but found it a little intimidating, we have just the game for you.
Have you been playing anything different this past week? Let us know in the comments below.
By Tiny Touch Tales - buy on iOS / buy on Android
Tiny Touch Tales has a knack of taking the classic card game of Solitaire and twisting it into brilliant new shapes, all with a distinctive art style. See Card Crawl and Card Thief for examples. Now you can add Miracle Merchant to that list.
Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?!
By Daylight Studios - buy on iOS / buy on Android
This is an accessible strategy game all about a potato running a weapon shop. Our trusty spud must buy materials, make an assortment of deadly weapons, then sell them on to heroes for a tasty profit. It looks lovely, it's smart, and it's pretty darned original.
By Dropout Games - buy on iOS
If you blasted through Yankai's Peak and are still thirsting for more triangle-shifting puzzling, Neo Angle might be worth a go. It isn't going to pose the same intense challenge, but it's a well-oiled puzzler that offers up the odd new idea.
By Mobirate - download on iOS / download on Android
Train up fantasy critters to battle other players in this Pokemon-meets-freemium-battler game. There's nothing revolutionary to Warpets, but it has an enjoyably snappy turn-based battle system and solid presentation.
Tiny Defense 2
By Picsoft Studios - buy on iOS
We weren't exactly bowled over by the original Tiny Defense, but this sequel is a much more polished and varied affair. It's still a casual take on tower defence though, as you fend off waves of enemies from a side-on perspective
