Welcome back to our weekly feature rounding up the newest games on the App Store and Google Play Store.

This week's line-up of games isn't the most exciting we've ever seen, if we're being honest. However, there are a couple of gems in there that we know to be pretty ace.

We'll pick those out a little later in the week, once we've had a chance to play them all.
