It’s been some time since we’ve done a weekly mobile roundup, so this edition will actually cover the last few weeks.

On deck: KOTOR goes mobile, Warhammer Quest gets a virtual makeover, and more. Start your weekend off right with the following games: 
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Developer: BioWare
Platforms: iPad
Price: $9.99
Details: Ten years after its release on the original Xbox and PC, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has come to the iPad in a form that’s true to its roots and optimized for touch screen control. There are no gimmicks here; KOTOR is available in the App Store in its pure, original greatness.
Warhammer Quest
Developer: Rodeo Games
Platforms: iOS
Price: $4.99
Details: Warhammer Quest is an iOS port of the 90’s adventure board game of the same name. The transition to mobile has been good to this game, and it includes all the loot-loving features you’d expect from a dungeon-delving RPG.

Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD
Developer: Shu Takumi/ Capcom
Platforms: iOS
Price: free trial; $16.99 for all three games
Details: Ace Attorney is back for some iOS legal action, and he looks better than ever. Capcom has remastered all three games for retina display, and the new touch controls work well.
Ticket to Ride
Developer: Days of Wonder
Platforms: Android
Price: $6.99
Details: One of the most massively appealing tabletop games has finally made its way over to the Google Play store. iOS users have been able to download Ticket to Ride for some time, but Android users can now build colorful locomotive paths across continents, too.
Kingdom Rush: Frontiers HD
Developer: Ironhide Game Studio
Platforms: iOS
Price: $4.99
Details: The original Kingdom Rush was a huge success, and its sequel only adds to the enjoyment of this tower defense standout. Check out Matt Miller’s review of the game here
The DRM: Death Ray Manta
Developer: PsychicParrot Games
Platforms: Android, iOS
Price: $0.99
Details: Death Ray Manta is like a pre-NES twin-stick shooter on LSD.

Scurvy Scallywags
Developer: Ron Gilbert and Clayton Kauzlaric
Platforms: iOS
Price: $0.99
Details: Scurvy Scallywags is not your average match-three puzzle game. It throws in a chest full of pirate jokes, sea shanties, and shiny booty for a very enjoyable mobile game.

We’d love to hear about any must-play mobile games for the week that we missed in the comments below.
