Best new Android and iPhone games of the week

Best new Android and iPhone games of the week
Let's start off the week with some fun! We're kicking off a weekly column that we plan to publish on Mondays to present you with our favorite games of the week. We've set no limits to the genre, platform, or price, but as all things 'favorite', PhoneArena’s games of the week choice will be subjective. We can't guarantee that you'd love the genre of the game we've picked, but it should be a good choice for those who do. And one thing that our games of the week won't be is of poor quality.

With no further ado, we start our selection with the game that we loved the most this week, and continue with the runner-ups. Take a look below.

Game of the week: Sneaky Sneaky


Developer: Naiad EntertainmentDownload: iOS
Genre: Stealth-adventurePrice: $2.99

Sneaky Sneaky captured our attention with its cute, likable visual style and a good take on the tactical stealth game genre. As the game implies, you’re a thief that has to hide in the shadows and wait for the right moment to strike. The story revolves around the ambush of your rogue Sneaky, as you have to reclaim the treasure he originally stole.

The gameplay is rich and being able to approach each challenge differently brings a nice level of freedom. Enemies also get smarter as you play along, and there are some nice RPG elements to the game as your hero evolves.


Runner-ups:

Magazine Mogul


Developer: KairosoftDownload: iOS, Android
Genre: SimulationPrice: $4.99

Kairosoft’s micromanagement game have won it quite the name in the pocket gaming world, and the latest Magazine Mogul is another well-made game that walks you through the challenge of running a magazine business, where getting interesting, buzz-worthy stories is the key to success.

As your readership grows, you get to write more features and even assist local authorities make the right decision for city planning.


Evoland


Developer: Shiro GamesDownload: iOSAndroid
Genre: Action-adventurePrice: $4.99

The action adventure free-roaming game Evoland arrives on mobile after a 2013 release on Steam. The game is a true meta adventure that walks you through the history of gaming starting off with monochrome and going to color; beginning with limited movement to a free roaming style, and unlocking features including Final Fantasy-like boss battles.

Evoland has really got a little bit of everything, and it will be dearly appreciated for those who have been playing games since a very early age.


Plug & Play


Developer: Etter StudioDownload: iOS
Genre: Action-adventurePrice: $2.99

Plug & Play is more of a visual novel, an experiment in story-telling rather than a full-blown game, but it is interactive, it is different, and for those of you who want to plug off the boring world and spend 10 minutes in this immersive story, it’s definitely worth checking out.


ZigZag


Developer: KetchappDownload: iOS, Android
Genre: CasualPrice: Free

A simple, casual game where you tap to zig zag your way up as far as possible and collect diamonds along the way, ZigZag offers trendy, minimalistic visuals a la Monument Valley. We love the gameplay, but the god-awful ads that plague the game leave it at the last place of this week’s selection of best games.

Kairosoft is a good mobile dev, but what is the deal with no Game Dev Story 2? Game Dev Story is still my favorite of their games and I've played numerous ones, and it is their best selling, would make sense to do a sequel after all this time.

oh look at this topic ! phonearena.com/news/LG-G3-receives-Android-5.0-in-​the-Middle-East_id65718 The asshole (iOSLMAFO) who made his comment and called middle east (f**king ISIS) didn’t get his comment deleted, for over 4 DAYS !! I told him to shut up and my comment got deleted ! OH MY GOD ! the last thing i expected is to find a bunch of racist motherf**kers moderating this site. I feel soon pity for them for hating us, maybe each one of them his ass got raped by an Arab guy when he was a kid ! how pathetic ! So now he thinks he is a BIG BOY keeping the comments that insult people he doesn’t like. But you know what ??? you just proved how stupid and child you are. So again : to each and every moderator on this site : f**k you so much for showing your true hatred sick racist attitude. and this is the last visit by me for this s**tty site. GAGAKILLER
