Hello and welcome to another entry in our long-running GAMES OF THE WEEK series. If you're looking for the best 5 games which have launched onto iOS and Android this week then you've come to the right place.

Those of you who are regular readers will recall that this post is free of games added to subscription services, however this week we've been met with an almost immediate question about that, and as such have a quandry. As you are likely more than aware this week saw the release of a new game which features its own subscription model: Mario Kart Tour.

So, on the subject of Mario Kart Tour - which is among our five of the week - we should clarify that the exemption means games which are only accessible with a subscription already in place. That means that this post won't mention games which are on Apple Arcade, Google Play Pass, or services like Hatch. Although, goodness me, we will most definitely have other features on the site for fans of those services. 

This week we've got some great new titles, although I'm certain you've already guessed at two of them based on the above and our featured image. Otherwise we've an abstract puzzler, a real-world narrative experience and a heartwarming puzzler for you.

Remember, if you're looking to check through some of our previous selections then you can always do that at our Games of The Week Hub, it's a great way to find games to fill out that empty storage space on your phone. Or, if you like your news in bitesize chunks, delivered straight to your palm then maybe follow us on Twitter.
