StickWars 3
By PulsePlay - download for iPhone and iPad

StickWars 3 is, naturally enough, the third instalment in PulsePlay's castle defence franchise. This time around, though, instead of controlling the good guys, you take on the role of the evil King Maelnik and his undead army.

You can increase the defence rating of your castle with a whopping 60 different upgrades, and unleash a variety of nasty baddies, including zombie archers and necromancers.

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space Ep 4
By Telltale - buy for iPhone and iPad

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space Ep 4 is the penultimate episode in Telltale's point-and-click adventure franchise, which sees you step into the shoes (paws?) of self-styled Freelance Police officials Sam and Max.

This episode follows the game's two inspectors as they attempt to find missing person Bosco, who's literally disappeared off the face of the planet.

Burnout Crash!
By Electronic Arts - buy for iPhone and iPad

Burnout Crash! is a top-down spin-off of the award-winning Burnout console franchise that charges you with causing mayhem, huge pile-ups, and lots of destruction across three game modes.

That's a lot easier than it sounds, as you can utilise road blocks, tornados, tidal waves, and even UFOs.

SlitherLink features a bunch of logic puzzles that are as difficult to explain as they are to complete. Basically, you have to draw lines around numbers while adhering to two simple rules.

Firstly, you have to connect the dots scattered around the game's playing field to make a circle around each number. Secondly, the number of lines that surround a number have to match the number on the board. Clear?

Got Cow?
By David Miller - buy for iPhone and iPad

Got Cow? is a physics-based game that invites you to defend some peaceful cows against some unscrupulous alien invaders across some puzzle-filled levels.

As you play, you'll encounter black holes, asteroids, and wormholes - all of which will affect the rockets you fire at your alien foes.
