The best deals of the week in handheld and mobile – February 26

If you’re like us, then you’ve probably diverted what few funds you have available towards Nintendo’s new Switch console. That probably means you have precious few pounds, dollars, or euros to spend on other portable games.

Lucky for you we run a weekly feature whereby we bring you a list of the best deals on iOS and Android games, smartphones, handheld games, and any other bargains that stand out related to gaming on the go.

If you’ve found any top deals that you think should be featured gere, please do let us know in the comments below.
