An action roguelike with an inspired single-handed control system, Immortal Rogue manages that trick of being simultaneously accessible and deeply rewarding.
Boost Buddies is another game that appears to have learned a thing or two from Downwell - but it's learned them well, with an irresistibly twitchy, action-heavy appeal.
The Stillness of the Wind
The Stillness of the Wind asks you to experience life through the eyes of any old woman tending to her farm. This beautifully melancholic game is all about the feels rather than the taps.
The kind of fast-paced single-screen arcade platformer that blasts by in a blur of tight snackable levels. You just try putting it down.
A new Nitrome game is always cause for celebration. Spicy Piggy lives up to its name, not only with its porcine platforming protagonist, but also its red-hot difficulty.
Knights of the Card Table
Iron Horse Games LLC
Card/board game, Strategy
A bright and brilliant solo card-based dungeon crawler with a unique art style and an interesting combat system.
Linn: Path of Orchards
Crescent Moon Games
Linn: Path of Orchards is a beautiful platformer with a Monument Valley-esque air of mystique, and levels that literally change under your feet.
Card/board game, Simulation, Strategy
This deeply satisfying board game adaptation is packed full of strategic possibilities, and it even packs in a rare single-player campaign and online matchmaking.
Skylanders: Ring of Heroes
A very late entry to this list (we actually reviewed it on March 1st), Skylanders is a big budget, licensed take on the midcore RPG. And very slick it is too.
Nintendo's latest mobile effort (and first original mobile IP) launched in the US and Japan last year, but it's only just attained a global rollout. It's good, clean casual ARPG fun with a dose of Ninty polish.
