Who needs to spend several hundred dollars on a console when we've already spent several hundred on the latest tablet or smark phone, right? Hey, at least the games are cheap, and this week sees the release of some damn fine games. Better than the PS4 launch lineup?
Seventeen amazing games — that's got to be some sort of Week in Gaming Apps record. I go on vacation for a week, and all the good games come out at once.
They are coming. You can hear them shambling by your window. Their ragged nails scraping across your door. Their spiriting knocking and shouting of "trick or treat!" The children are almost here. Here are some spooky mobile games to keep you company while you turn off all the lights in your house and hide.
Any week where you can punch a couple hundred bears in the face is a good week. Add the return of one of the greatest puzzle games of the original PlayStation generation, and you've got one slightly late Week in Gaming Apps.
Since we can't all go back to bed, let's play some gaming apps instead. Here are eight of the latest and/or greatest to get us started.
Did you guys see the Bests update for Android? It signals a renewed effort to cover the latest and greatest games coming to the world's most popular open mobile platform. That's going to have to do for this week.

Last week (well, technically last week) I introduced you all to the all-new, all-video Week in Gaming Apps. Some of you loved it. Others wanted a return to the classic format, with the giant pictures. So I did both, and that's why it's Monday now.
Remember the other week, when I promised a brand new Week in Gaming Apps that would change everything forever. Forget that. I was contact drunk. Let's get back to the tried-and-true format of yesterweeks, just in time for some of the greatest games ever.
Are you ready for another all-new, all-different Week in Gaming Apps? Well tough, it's happening.
In the last exciting episode of The Week in Gaming Apps, the feature apologized for wanting to kill you. Afterwards it was so ashamed it hid for three weeks. Guess who gets to write-up 20 fresh mobile games?
Look, we all make mistakes. None of us are infallible. Sometimes I forget to pay my cable bill until after the due date, Stephen Totilo thinks Majora's Mask is one of the best Zelda games ever, and the Week in Gaming Apps plotted your demise. Let's all just make up and move on.
I know you've been worried. You've been keeping your phone in that heavily-padded case in a locked lead box under your bed. Your iPad is in a safe, and not for its own protection. You've got handcuffs for your Nexus 7, and not the kinky kind. Well do not worry, my friends. None of this week's gaming apps will kill you.
