How is it Thursday again? I guess because that's how our way of measuring time works. Regardless of how we got here, Thursday is when we like to take a look at the very best new games for mobile that have come out over the last few days. Because there are so many titles hitting the App Store and the Google Play Store all the time, it's sometimes easy to miss out on a gem - we're here to try and make sure that doesn't happen.

Now, it hasn't been the greatest week for new games, if we're honest, but we've put the work in and found five games that we think you should definitely play - even if a hundred other games had come out, these ones would still be vying for a place on the list, that's how good they are.

This week we've got stoned koalas, pigeons that can fly planes, abstract leaping, and a violent combination that wouldn't have made sense about seven years ago but is perfectly commonplace nowadays. Basically what I'm trying to say is that there's a lot going on, and it's a good job you've decided to come and read this excellent article to make sure that you're up to speed with everything.

If you've spotted any new games you think we should be covering, or if you're a developer who wants to throw your own hat into the ring, then please make sure you do in the comments section at the bottom of the article. You could even thank us for finding you a game you love, if that's the sort of thing you're into.

Oh, and we've put links to all the games in the article, so you're only a click away from being able to grab them from whichever store tickles your fancy.

Click here and you can bookmark our games of the week hub, which means you'll be one of the first to know every week when these articles go live - that way you can brag to all of your friends about how much smarter than them you are. Or not, up to you. Anyway, let's get on with the games.
