1849, the gold-digging, town-building, frontier-times simulator is out right now for iPad and Android, so you can get your wooden teeth into some pretty hardcore shack making and brandy trading.

We went hands-on with the game earlier in the year, and we liked what we saw. It's a complex, in-depth city builder that will have strategy fans leaping up and down with whatever passes for joy nowadays.

You can grab 1849 from the App Store for £2.99 / $4.99 [buy] and the Google Play Store for £2.94 / $4.99 [buy] right this instant.
