Best new Android and iPhone games (November 1st - November 7th)
If you are wondering about the best new Android and iPhone games, and you don't want to go through hundreds of new games in the app stores, we have picked the very best new releases from the past week right here.
The games included in this round-up are selected only by their quality and with no regards to genre: you will find casual games, puzzlers, racing games, strategy and everything in-between. The paramount criterion is quality and an engaging gameplay. With no further ado, here are the best new games in the beginning of November 2016.
Batman Telltale Series
Batman Telltale Series is separate from any comic, movie, or game that has come out recently. Set a few years after Bruce Wayne started donning the cape and cowl, the story is a fresh take on the early years of the Caped Crusader's adventures. The player will be controlling both Batman and Bruce Wayne and, at times, has the choice to approach a certain situation either in “normal” clothes or as the masked vigilante. The game will have a total of 5 episodes. In typical TTG style, one episode takes about an hour to complete and some decisions you make throughout will affect minor details throughout the rest of the game. The style of this game elevates storytelling over gameplay and it feel more like an interactive miniseries than a full-fledged game.

Nekosan is a clever new puzzle platformer that features... a cat. Played in portrait orientation and with pleasant, one-hand controls, it features a ton of smartly designed levels, but it is the way you move around them that is the challenging part. You get 9 lives to accomplish the goal of each level, which is to collect the one star, and you do that by passing the 10 stages in each level. The game is free to play, but if you want to completely remove the occasional ads, a $3 one-time in-app purchase does that.
Pettson's Inventions 3
A game for preschoolers, but also for curious folks, Pettson's Inventions 3 tests you to build some clever inventions. You need to figure out which ones of the objects should be included and where to put them in the machinery. Drag and drop the objects to their right spot and watch the invention start. For every invention finished there will be a reward of a cogwheel. When you have finished all the inventions a special invention will be unlocked where you will help Findus fly out to space.
