Every so often, when we've gotten bored with wasting time on Flow Free or Candy Crush for the bajillionth hour, we take a look at our iOS or Android devices and wonder when the last time it was that we downloaded a truly great mobile game. Sometimes, they aren't easy to find. With all the half-assed demos that clutter up space, and the ultra-specificed categorizing, our searches for the latest, essential handheld titles in the Play Store and App Store can often leave us more confused than when we started. So, to make things a bit easier on everyone, we decided to put together a list of the 5 Best Mobile Downloads that you were able to buy for your phone or tablet this past week of October 6 - 12. 

No need to thank us. Just get playing, guys.
