The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands
Build your settlement, manage your workers, and defend your town from monsters at night in this striking strategy game. We've seen a similar plot before through the likes of Kingdom: New Land, but in The Bonfire you'll trade with other civilisations, discover ancient secrets, and unlock new buildings as you go as well.
This turn-based game puts you in the shoes of a humble warrior's son after bandits raided your village. Inspired by old-school strategies, the aim is to raise your own army and take your revenge against those who destroyed your home.
This 2D point-and-click horror puzzler follows our brave but frightened Bulb Boy as he awakes one night to find his Grandpa-raffin and Mothdog gone and his house overrun with nightmares.
It's up to you to figure out the puzzles, defeat the monsters that lie waiting in the dark, and try really, really hard not to get killed in the many colourful ways available.

You're not playing the hero in this turn-based RPG - quite the opposite, in fact. Set in a rather brutal fantasy world, it's up to you to lead your un-merry band of ruffians and demonic allies and lay siege to the civilised world.
Your victory depends on your use of terrain, tactical decisions, magic, and more, so what are you waiting for?

Alright, if you've been on the internet at all for the past few years you'll know about the Goat Simulator games. YouTubers loved playing it because of how derpy and buggy it is and it's generally rather daft to play.
Over on the App Store the following three are on sale, which means you can muck about as a goat (and occasionally other animals) for next to nothing:
RAC7 has a sale on both of its premium title - one a fantastic puzzler with clever mechanics, the other a wonderfully unique puzzler where sound is your best friend.
Both of these titles have won awards and are well worth playing at full price, let alone at a measly price such as this.
- Platform: iOS/Android
- Price: £1.99/$1.99 or cheaper
