Five bucks spent and an hour in, I’m having a very good time with Lara Croft GO, the new mobile Tomb Raider spin-off that came out a few hours ago. It’s turn-based. It’s full of tomb raiding. How about I show you? You’ll see some early levels—and a comparison to the very cool precursor Hitman GO—in my 13-minute playthrough above. Enjoy!

Lara Croft GO costs is available for Android and iOS. You can pay once and play all you want, but if you get stuck, you could plunk down another $5.

Try to resist doing that! It’s more fun to use your brain.
