One of our jobs here at Pocket Gamer is to sieve through the hundreds of apps that hit the App Store and Google Play every single day, and unearth those glittering gems.

Lately, though, we've been giving you the chance to have YOUR say, too. Basically, we've been giving you the opportunity to tell us your favourite game from a shortlist of the week's best releases.

This week's votes have been counted (and recounted), and we have a winner: Combo Crew.

Combo Crew is a Streets of Rage-inspired "blast-from-the-past" arcade-style beat-em'-up from Squids and Squids Wild West developer The Game Bakers.

In Combo Crew, you assume the role of a chiselled brawler who's trapped in a large tower-like structure.

Your aim, then, is to fight your way through waves of enemies, slowly climb up each level of the tower, and take battle-hardened leader Mr. Boss to the cleaners.

You can do this on your lonesome or with the help of your friends, who - using the game's asynchronous multiplayer features - can rescue you when you go through a sticky patch.

Not alone

At review, we called Combo Crew "a frantic beat-'em-up that fuses a retro sensibility with modern touchscreen controls", and noted that it's an "often brilliant, always entertaining way to punch some goons in the face".

You can grab Combo Crew from the App Store [buy] and Google Play [buy] for £1.49 / $1.99 right now.
