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: Heroes' Quest: AFK Explorer

In Heroes' Quest: AFK Explorer you have an adorable idle RPG with chibi graphics and tons upon tons of content to be explored (as the title also mentions). It's a typical RPG, but it's one of those games that doesn't bombard you with 'must do' quests. Instead, you can relax and advance at your own pace. 

Oh, and one last thing worth mentioning - it comes with pets! You can build a home and decorate it however you wish to accommodate your cute pet. That makes it stand out as our game of the week since it's been a while since we covered such a relaxing and adorable game.

Heroes' Quest: AFK Explorer is available for free, so you can grab it on Google Play right now!
