Who says that mobile games are a bunch of tosh? Certainly not us, and 2015 has been a great one for the industry too.
So we picked a few of our top mobile titles of the year that you should spend money on. Did we miss a pick? Let us know in the comments!
The Room 3
The Room franchise is probably one of mobile gaming's most respected properties, with the latest title being a killer title too.
The Room 3 offers more of the same atmospheric puzzling, albeit with expanded locations and alternate endings too.
The Room 3 is available for R70 on iOS, with an Android release still expected.
Grim Fandango Remastered
We're glad to see this PC classic revived for a new audience, but for the uninitiated, what's it all about?
Well, the title sees you play as a travel agent in the Land of the Dead, being an adventure as you attempt to "untangle yourself from a conspiracy". Expect remastered visuals and extra developer commentary here.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Easily one of the most innovative and stirring games in recent years, the critically acclaimed platformer made its way to mobile devices.
The original game saw you using dual analogue sticks to control two brothers, with the mobile iteration switching to virtual pads instead. Throw in an emotional story and you've got one of the most interesting games on mobile.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is available for R70 on iOS.
The Martian: Bring Him Home
The Martian got some fantastic reviews, but did you know that there's a tie-in videogame as well?
Yep, the game is heavily inspired by mobile titles such as Lifeline, as you guide astronaut Mark Watney in a "choose your own adventure" style. So think carefully about the decisions you make.
I'm a huge MMA fan, but I quite like the management genre too. So this title personally made for a great combination.
You'll be managing a gym, negotiating fights, hiring coaches, influencing "key moments of a fight" and dealing with obstacles like drugs, missed weight and injuries.
Lara Croft GO
After the success that was last year's Hitman GO, Square Enix has turned to the Tomb Raider for its latest mobile outing.
Much like Hitman GO, Lara Croft GO has an isometric, turn-based perspective, as you carefully plan moves to avoid/take out baddies and reach your goal. But the game also stands out thanks to its tricky climbing sections.
Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon
The first Spider game was arguably one of the best titles released on mobile, showing what the platform was capable of.
This year saw a great sequel being launched, allowing you to explore an old mansion as an arachnid, catching insects and uncovering the story in the process.
One of the most popular indie games around, survival adventure Don't Starve is available for PC, PS4, Vita and this year it hit mobile too.
The survival title sees you trying to collect food, gather resources and build items in a randomly generated world. You'll fail eventually, but it's still a load of fun.
Don't Starve is available for R70 on iOS.
This War of Mine
Who says that war games have to be about shooting soldiers and creating explosions? This War of Mine portrays conflict from the point of view of civilians.
The popular PC title came to mobile devices this year, with players having to collect food and medical supplies while avoiding snipers and hostile civilians. Civilians will die, but that's all part of this depressing experience.
One of the more innovative titles released this year, Her Story is reminiscent of those movie-based titles of yore.
You're an investigator searching through a database of video interviews with a woman whose husband has gone missing. You'll need to type in search terms to access the various interviews, piecing together "her story" in the process. Intriguing.
Her Story is available for R70 on iOS.
