Had enough Candy Crush and looking for some fun new games to play on your iPhone? Here are five favorites TIME rounded up this week.


Run Bird Run

Run Bird Run
Run Bird Run

While Angry Birds may dominate the absurd bird-based genre, games like Crossy Road and Run Bird Run are starting to steal the spotlight. Players control a square bird by tapping their screen left or right in order to avoid falling boxes. It’s simple, almost mindless, and yet lots of fun to play. Unlock different levels, characters, maps, and a variety of comical cube-shaped creatures to keep the game interesting.

Run Bird Run is free in the App Store


King of Thieves

King of Thieves

One of the few non-puzzle, non-shooter player-vs.-player games available for iOS. Play as a tiny cubed thief trying to steal gold from others while remaining undetected. The more you steal, the more money you have to buy disguises to better rob your friends.

Radical

Radical

Radical combines old-school concepts of barebones design and simple obstacle avoidance. Guide a small triangle through a series of openings without hitting the side of the wall. See if you can swipe your triangle from one side of the screen to the other in order to avoid crashing. It’s a simple arcade-style game that can keep you busy for long stretches of time.

Radical is available free in the App Store


Cava Racing

Cava Racing

Cava Racing is a well-designed racing title that has the feel of an arcade game, with the desolate look and coloring of a Mad Max movie. Players rotate their phones in order to steer ships around corners that can spell doom for your vehicle. Use boosters to try and crush the best times for each race. The gameplay is incredibly fast and high-quality.

Cava Racing is $1.99 in the App Store


Darklings Season 2

Darklings

A sequel to a well-received first attempt, Darklings Season 2 takes players through a surreal universe to fight enemies and conquer maps. Players use special powers to battle enemy darklings, who have stolen the stars from the world. It’s a remarkably detailed and well-animated game worthy of the first.
