Weekly Mobile Roundup — December 21

As of this year, Google Play and Apple’s App Store contain more than 1,000,000 apps each. One million. With that amount of options, it can be difficult to choose which games to download on a week-to-week basis.

Luckily for you, we at The Game Fanatics will be picking out a handful of titles each week that we think you should be on the lookout for. In this edition we highlight The Walking Dead’s newest episode, some classic Tomb Raider, and an original stealth game that will have you re-thinking what a mobile game can be. Disclosure: Our apologies this week, Android users.
