We've decided that you need more information. Apple might have its own game of the day, but Apple wants you to spend money on anything - that's sort of the point of running a business. Here at Pocket Gamer, on the other hand, we just want you to play the very best mobile games all of the time. Bad mobile games are bad, and playing them may well upset you. That's why, every day from now on, we're going to let you know about one spectacular mobile game that you definitely should be playing.


Our first game of the day is Lichtspeer, which is a game all about throwing spears at weird norse monsters. It's basically like an episode of Game of Thrones, except viewed through the psychedelic haze of the late 60s. Which is pretty awesome, if you ask us.

When we reviewed the game, our intrepid critic said "Lichtspeer is a brilliant, beguiling, and often chaotically stupid game. It's also one of the best things I've played on mobile for a good long while, and it's well worth picking up." He then gave it a shiny Gold Award, and those things do not grow on trees.

There's a simple drag and release mechanism to the play here that's a little reminiscent of Angry Birds. Rather than attacking stationary targets though, here you're trying to fight back waves of LSD-infused zombies, enormous giants, and more.

Every enemy you're facing off against has its own set of skills, and you need to prioritise taking down the ones that are going to hit you first. Honestly, there aren't many games that could make a man hate cheery flying seals, but this is definitely one of them.
