Thursday is the day when most of the new releases land on the App Store. And while today might feel like a Wednesday to some people who are still painfully confused after the weekend, it's actually Thursday. Which means it's time to round up what we think are the top 5 best new games for iOS and Android this week.

This week we've got board game zombies, a new way to play a bonafide mobile classic, a soccer game filled with anthropomorphic creatures, and a weird indie about harvesting organs from trees. Basically we've got a little something for everyone, so long as you like playing the very best games on your smartphone.

You don't just have to take our word for how great these games are either - we've included download links so you're only a couple of clicks away from getting any of them installed on your phone or tablet. That's the sort of handy service we like to provide here at Pocket Gamer.

Of course you might not think our list is correct, and that's fine. If you've got your own suggestions as to what are the best games to come out this week, we'd love to hear them, Drop them in the comments section at the bottom of the article and we can have a reet good chat. Or if you prefer reacting to things with small pictures, we've now added the ability to do that to all of our posts, which is exciting?

Make sure you bookmark our Games of the week hub so you're not missing out on any of these excellent articles too. You can do that with a click right here. I think that covers everything, so let's get on with our list of the best new games for mobile from this week.
