Why we picked this?

Battleship Online breaths new life into the classic board game. Before the battle begins, drag and drop four different ship types onto the grid in your preferred formation. You’re able to rotate ships with a double-tap, but keep in mind that ships can’t be placed adjacent to each other. Then hit start and take turns with your opponent firing away at a blank grid. Your missed shots appear as dots, and hits will appear as Xs. If you hit a ship, you get to keep firing. The player who sinks all of their opponent’s ships first is declared the winner. The game includes local and online play.

You’re a fan of board games. It’s easy to just pick up and play.

You're a purist. You can buy additional shots, which can give you an unfair advantage.

Why we picked this?

In LightEaters, it’s up to you to explore the darkness. Every level has a key to be found and an exit to be reached. You’re able to move your character around the pitch black environments with taps and swipes. If you come across a LightEater, you must disable your flashlight to avoid confrontation. Passing by LightEaters will eat way at your nerve meter, and if it gives out, you’ll have to start all over. The game includes 35 levels, power-ups, and a variety of secrets to discover.

You want to test your wits. Its mini-puzzles will keep you guessing.

You’re easily frustrated. The controls can be a bit cumbersome, especially when trying to clear larger gaps.
