Let's get on with it!
A Musical Story
With its gorgeous aesthetics and very distinct art style, A Musical Story sets itself apart from other rhythm games in that it requires you to listen rather than look at the beats on your screen. You'll play through the memories of Gabriel, with each scene revealed wordlessly as you successfully complete music beats per chapter.
Each new musical sequence will repeat in a loop until you time your taps right, with a handy Assist function that guides you with a white dot when things get a little too difficult.
Endless runners have endless appeal, and this time, players will have to do their very best to get an adorable axolotl across wacky challenges in one piece. In Axolotl Stars, you'll traverse chaotic levels filled with all kinds of perils as you race other axolotls and nab the top spot in the leaderboards.
You can also unlock different kinds of cute axolotls in charming handmade 3D graphics, as well as enjoy the game's haptic feedback and screen optimisation features.
Hitman Sniper: The Shadows
This highly anticipated title from SQUARE ENIX engages players in high-stakes action set in the deadly world of The Shadows. As a highly-skilled sniper, you'll take on different assignments across the globe, take out your targets by any means necessary and even compete with other like-minded individuals to be the best of the International Contract Agency (ICA) Elite Agents.
You can also collect and build your team of assassins, each with their own abilities and backstories. It's up to you to finish the job in the most creative ways possible - be sure to use your environment around you to execute that glorious kill shot.
The Impossible Game 2
True to its title, this purposely difficult platformer will have you leaping across all kinds of nasty traps and avoiding deadly spikes as you shoot your way through unique levels amidst a funky soundtrack. The Impossible Game 2 also features an epic boss battle along with an online battle royal mode that will pit your skills against a sea of sixty players.
You can craft your own level with the level editor as well, or bop your head to the beat of the music from Panda Eyes, Nitro Fun and MDK to name a few.
Monster Forest - Merge Monster
Sometimes, the simplest games have the most appeal, and with Monster Forest - Merge Monster, you do exactly as the title says: you merge monsters to fill up your monster forest. All you really have to do is to combine cute (and sometimes not-so-cute) creatures and complete your collection of beauties in charming hand-drawn graphics. Plus, you can play the game with just one finger, so it's as accessible as ever no matter where you are.
