Badland Brawl, Stardew Valley, Reigns: Game of Thrones and more
Ah, October. The name they gave to the dull, cold, featureless lull in between summer and the exciting festive stuff.
Of course, that also means it's the ideal time to lie on the couch and play a bunch of mobile games.
It seems as if developers are on our wavelength here, because October turned out to be packed full of great releases. This was one of those months where we had a genuinely tricky decision to make about which games made the cut.
Here, then, are ten of the best iOS and Android games from the past 30 days or so. Have we missed your favourite? Do share in the comments below.
The smooshing together of the Reigns series and Game of Thrones is about as much of a no-brainer as it gets in mobile gaming. Of course it was going to work brilliantly. The gruesome political plotting of both properties seems to be a marriage made in one of the seven heavens.
We're still relieved to play the final product, though, if only because it distracts us from the fact that the final season of the show is still some months away.
