Simple is as simple does, and Don't Hit the Walls is probably as simple as you can get. In this world of sphere-shrinking, you've got to have the right reflexes – and why not give it a go? It's out now on iOS.

As mentioned above Don't Hit the Walls is wonderfully simple but in the right way. Some games you look at and try desperately not to roll your eyes at the uninspiring sight, but this game uses its graphics wisely. Sticking to a red, orange, and yellow colour palette, it knows its genre without being fussy, and I love that.

Don't hit the Walls is an arcade game in its barest form. With one very specific goal and two very simple mechanics, this one's a no-brainer. Get as high as score as you can while dragging the ball from side to side and shrink the sphere to get it through the ever-constricting gaps. This is what I'd call a travel or 'toilet' game, for those of you who bring your phone to the loo with you. I'm not judging.

Grab the game on the App Store now free-to-play and see how far you can get.
