Ah, it feels good to be back. The holidays kept me away a while, but now we’re in a new year with a brand new list of outstanding games. Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery is one of the most absurdly acclaimed games on mobile and is more than worthy of our top spot. We’ve also got a brilliant insect strategy game, a killer point and click adventure game, an artistic physics puzzler, a shamelessly awesome endless runner, and a unique memory style puzzler reminiscent of Indiana Jones.

Cognitile ($0.99)

If you like memory-based maze games featuring an Indiana Jones aesthetic and brutal death animations, then you have oddly specific taste, but you’ll also enjoy Cognitile from Express Media. In the game’s sixty main levels, you’ll watch a series of death traps unfold, and must plan the path of your treasure hunting adventurer based on your memory of those traps. The visuals are cartoony and very well done, and the puzzles get surprisingly complex down the line. Once you’re done with the main game, you can build your own murderous levels in the game’s level editor. Definitely give this one a look.
