Every week dozens of new games come out for mobile phones, and every week the team here at Pocket Gamer do their best to highlight the best of those through our news, reviews, videos and more. You might remember our old Best Games of the Week series, well, we've refined that same list into this one; the best new mobile game of the week. 

We'll be adding a new page to this article every week, creating a rolling archive of the cream of the crop. Not only that, but we'll make sure to link out to any reviews of the game that we've made, as well as collate any other important information about the games that come to be after the launch.

We've thrown out the restrictions we previously had. These games can be from subscription services like Google Play Pass, Apple Arcade or GameClub, although we are going to keep the list specifically to phone-native games, steering clear of including Steam, Playstation or Xbox game launches into the list - even though many of those games are available through streaming or subscription services.

Nope, these are fresh new mobile games, one new one added each week - updated each Friday. 

Game of the Week: Overboard!

Everybody loves a good murder mystery game - but what about a murder mystery where you don't have to run around aimlessly, but instead focus on the clues and brain games required to figure out who the killer is, or how to get away with murder? 

In Overboard! you have a brilliant role-playing murder mystery game where your sole purpose is to pin the murder of your husband on the right person and get away with it. It's brilliantly well-done, and if you're into brain games and deception, make sure to check it out! 

Overboard! is a premium game, that comes at about $5.99, so you can grab it on Google Play or AppStore right now!
