iOS And Android Games Of The Week - October 18, 2013
The best games we've played in an impressive week of releases.
After a couple of slow weeks in the mobile release schedule, things have picked right up again to produce one of the most impressive crops of new games we've seen in quite some time. From the obscure delights of Simogo's Device 6, to the return of CSR Racing, it's safe to say this has been a week to please gamers of every persuasion. Only two games can come out on top though, so which ones take home the top honors?

The surreal Device 6 came very close to taking home the trophy this week, but in the final analysis we had to fall down on the side of Monster Adventures. While the traditional handheld gaming market loses itself to the endless depths of Pokemon X & Y, it seems only fitting that mobile gamers should get to feed their own monster-gathering addiction.
Game of the Week for a journey through the history of typography? When it's this beautifully crafted, absolutely. While this game technically came out at the end of last week, we only got our hands on it very recently and it more than deserves its moment in the spotlight. The puzzles in Type:Rider may not be particularly complex, but they're satisfying enough to add tangible depth to a wonderful artistic achievement. Who says you can't learn anything from playing games, eh?
