Good afternoon, lovely readers, I hope your last couple of weeks have been swell. You may not have gotten a Hot Five last week, but this one's been quite a busy seven days, don't you think?

With releases, updates, announcements, and a surprise legal battle, you can't really say it's been boring. Let's have a look at what you guys loved the most.

Bye-bye Builder

Poor ol' Builder's had it up to the teeth with being walked over and unappreciated. Any time he's build up a wonderful creation it's been broken down again, so he's sacked off Clash of Clans in search of something better. To replace him we've got some Barbarians with - erm - swords to build stuff in his stead. Yes...practical.

Smart Boy's finally being smart, boy

Two years in the making and the Android-exclusive portable device Smart Boy will finally start shipping in a couple of weeks. Though the handheld emulator lets you play Game Boy and Game Boy Colour games on your Android phone for a steep-ish price of £59.99/$59.99. If that floats your boat then, hey, go nuts.

That's it for another week. It's hard to believe the past seven days has gone by so fast, but that means we won't have to wait too long to see each other again.
