Hello and welcome to this week's entry in our long-running GAMES OF THE WEEK series. If you're looking for the best 5 games which have launched onto the iPhone, iPad or Android stores this week then you've landed yourself at the right place.

Here's where we discuss the top five games which have launched on any of the mobile platforms which, specifically, don't require a subscription or membership to play. While we realise that this does whittle down the amount of titles available to discuss — after all, we are in the age of Google Play Pass, Hatch and Apple Arcade — it's totally worth it and means that you are presented with a selection of games which you can immediately play or can grab without having to sign up for anything.

This week we've got some great new titles, ranging from a tightly-wound strategy game through to a sweeping RPG using clever swiping mechanics. Oh, there's also an aRPG which cites a level count of 'a gazillion' handcrafted dungeons. A lofty claim for sure, but it looks really stunning regardless of the hyperbolic marketting spiel. There's plenty more too.

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.
