Best New Mobile Games of the Week

Fresh on the App Store and Google Play!

It’s been a great week for new mobile and tablet games with a few notable launches from May 28th. Here are the notable launches and games to check out, especially if you’re one of the lucky ones to have the day off tomorrow!

Pokémon: Magikarp Jump

Download in the iTunes App Store / Google Play Store

Now you might be thinking, how could the most useless and pathetic Pokémon have its own game? Well, you’re as baffled as I am but it does make for an uplifting and enjoying casual game for mobile. Pokémon: Magikarp Jump is a Tamagotchi-like game where you’ll feed and train your own Magikarp while discovering rare ones in the pond. You’ll also decorate the pond and develop ways to help you Magikarp grow even faster.

You won’t be glued to this game all day, but it’s definitely something worth checking out.

Goat Simulator: PAYDAY

Download in the iTunes App Store / Google Play Store

Although this wasn’t quite the PAYDAY mobile game I was waiting for, the combination of Goat Simulator with PAYDAY does make for an enjoyable and action-packed game. In it, you’ll play as the infamous goat (or other characters from the DLC) wearing the iconic PAYDAY mask and yes, you’ll complete a number of heists.
