    The graphics are top-notch, the chiptunes are awesome, the controls are intuitive and optimized for the platform, and the gameplay itself is insanely challenging while being fun.

    All in all, if you're a tower defense fan, you probably don't need me to tell you to pick up this game. It's everything that you would expect from a sequel to one of the most popular iOS tower defense games, and if you don't mind that it is iPhone only, it's a must download.

    If you just want a game that will help you kill some downtime, then make sure to give this one a try.

    The minimal design is aesthetically pleasing, the music and sounds are fun, and the gameplay is rather challenging. The physics engine is pretty realistic as well, so there’s no funny business here.

    If you enjoyed other games by Devolver Digital, which includes the awesome Downwell, then you don’t want to miss out on Reigns.

    With its simple gameplay, engaging storyline, and neat visual style, WarGames is a blast to play.

    It's ultra simple with only one game mode, though there are leaderboards and achievements that add some depth.

    This is a great turn-based strategy game. The graphics are great and the gameplay is challenging, depending on your skills against other real-life players.

    If you are familiar with Pokémon Snap, then you will know how Jurassic GO works, as the two are similar, but this title deals with dinosaurs, of course.

    The game has a beautiful aesthetic that is calming, the music and sounds are pure bliss, and the controls are intuitive and responsive, indicating that this was a game that was optimized for touch screens. The puzzles themselves start off easy enough, but then things gradually pick up and become intricate and challenging. It’s just a perfect treat for puzzle lovers. I highly recommend checking out Causality this week if you’re in the mood for a truly special puzzle game.

    I still recommend giving Cut the Rope: Magic a try, but beware of the underhanded tactics that the developers have gone through to try and get even more money from you. If you’re forced to use a hint, just force quit and restart — that’s what I did.

    SPL-T does not look like much, but it is a great addition for puzzle game fans. Don’t be fooled by the lo-fi graphics — SPL-T is challenging and definitely something different in terms of puzzle fare.

    If you're in the mood for a fantastic falling blocks puzzle game, then I highly recommend you drop everything that you're doing right now and buy Dream of Pixels. In fact, if you can only get one game this week, make it this one. You won't regret it.

    It’s almost like a hybrid of Tetris and Star Command, yet it’s much more relaxing, hence the “meditative” part of the description. It features elements of base-building, tower-defense, and puzzle, all in one complete package.
