It’s that time of week once again where we round up all the best new games of the past seven days. It’s a relatively “light” week this week, insomuch that in the world of mobile that still means a dozen and a half games. Some of this week’s earlier arrivals we were able to put through their paces already so be sure to check out our review of Florence as well as our review of Death Squared, both of which we enjoyed a lot. And then check out the full list of all the rest of this week’s new games below and let us know which ones you’ve got your eye on.

Official app of the board game by AJ Porfirio and Van Ryder Games. In Hostage Negotiator, you play the part of a law enforcement agent responsible for negotiating the release of hostages taken by an unscrupulous figure hell-bent on having his or her demands met.
Each turn in the game represents a conversation between you and the hostage taker. You’ll play cards and roll dice to increase conversation points, decrease the threat level, and release hostages. Hostage Negotiator uses a unique “hand-building” mechanism that puts cards you purchase directly in your hand for next turn rather than leaving you wondering when the cards will show up like in deck-building games.
In Hostage Negotiator there are multiple paths to victory, but the hostage taker has other plans. Will you try to calm him and get him to surrender? Will you stall and bide your time before sending in the team for a major extraction? How many hostages will you save? These are many of the exciting decisions you will make in a game of Hostage Negotiator!
