iOS And Android Games Of The Week - October 11, 2013
After the heady rush of September's release schedule - when Infinity Blade, Angry Birds, and FIFA battled it out for supremacy - October's seemed a little flat by comparison. There are still plenty of top-notch mobile games coming out week by week though, and it's given smaller games the chance to have their moment in the spotlight.
Here's our pick of the very best of iPhone, iPad and Android gaming this week.
Steampunk Tower [Download: iOS]
Steampunk Tower takes the tired tower defense genre and breathes some much-needed life into it. This beautifully presented game places you in charge of an eccentrically designed steampunk tower, one that's armed to the teeth with ferocious Victorian weaponry. Varied enemy design and some clever weapon reload systems ensure you'll be kept on your toes throughout the game's generous campaign. More like this please.
Steampunk Tower - Review
The Blockheads fast became one of our favorite games when it was released for iOS devices earlier this year, and we were very pleased - not to mention surprised - to see the game suddenly pop up on the Google Play service. David Frampton's 2D sandbox exploration and crafting game is frighteningly addictive and has been crafted with very apparent love. It's free to try, so there's no excuse for not sampling its delights.
