If you’re looking for something different to play, here’s a look at some of the additional mobile games that were released this week.

Mini Metro ($4.99 on iOS, Android) – This strategy game from Playdigious and Dinosaur Polo Club asks users to design subway maps for 11 cities, including New York, Paris, London, Montreal and Osaka. In each game, users will need to draw lines between subway stations, and they can redraw lines as new stations open. The growth of each city will be randomly generated over time. Users have access to a limited number of resources as they play, and they will receive additional resources as time progresses. For instance, users can only construct a limited number of tunnels on their lines. The game ends when players allow overcrowding to occur at a station. Mini Metro includes normal and extreme modes, as well as a daily challenge feature. In the game’s extreme mode, the tracks players create are permanent. Finally, the game includes colorblind and night modes.

fade! (Free on iOS) – This puzzle game from Pine Entertainment asks users to protect the world from fog by tapping on colorful circles to remove them from the board. When a player taps on a circle, they will trigger a reaction that will clear nearby circles of the same color. These reactions can push back the fog and extend the game. Games end when the fog takes over the screen.

Reflection (Free on iOS, Android) – This endless survival game from ZPlay and PBR Chem Game Lab challenges users to help a character and its reflection survive by tapping and double tapping to jump over obstacles in the path. Different obstacles may appear in front of the the main character and the reflection, so users need to watch both paths to survive. Users can collect currency as they play, which can be used to unlock new playable characters.
