Every day, as we count down to Christmas, we'll be sharing a brilliant and essential game from 2015 that didn't quite make our game of the year list. We'll reveal the very best iOS and Android games of the last 12 months on Christmas Day


December 16th - Wrassling
iOS (Free) - Android (Free)

Wrassling is a beautiful slice of chaos, a pure arcade experience that will make you laugh, cry, and clench your fist in glorious triumph.

It apes the look of the classic 8bit era of computing, all blocky sprites and black backgrounds, and tasks you with throwing as many fellow Wrasslers out of the ring as you can in a totally bonkers royal rumble.

The controls are simple - you move about the ring, jump around, and swing your arms around. You need to lift, push, and bundle people out of the ring in any way you can.

And the end result is a massively engaging, often insane swirl of hilarity, teeth-grinding frustration, and hats. There are hats. They fall off your head a lot.

Throw in some boss battles, and you're left with a beautifully hectic crunch that, in a strange way, manages to capture the frantic theatre of wrestling better than most of the triple A interpretations of the game we've seen recently.
