Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire

Magic Touch is a brilliant, sharply addictive arcade blast that makes brilliant use of your phone or tablet's touchscreen.

Robot knights fall down from the top of the screen, carried by balloons with symbols on them. You need to scrawl the symbol with your finger to pop the balloon. If one gets to the bottom of the screen it's game over.

There are special power-ups, also set off by squiggles, that slow down time, electrocute anything on screen, or build a wall of fire to protect your castle.

It's almost impossible to have a single go, and there's a breathless brilliance to proceedings that means you'll probably lose hours of your life here.

Harry used to be really good at Snake on the Nokia 5110. Apparently though, digital snake wrangling isn't a proper job, so now he writes words about games instead.
