The last week of March has been a great week for gamers on mobile. There was one new particular game that we were eager to play: Monument Valley clone Dream Machine, an absolutely stunning puzzler using the same visual style we got to know and love in Monument Valley, but with new and more varied gameplay tricks to explore. With a price of just one dollar and no nasty in-app purchases, the game is a steal.
Then, there was one other game that we could not stop playing: the quite addictive Super Arc Light, a very different arcade type of a game with distinct graphics style and with quite challenging game conditions. These and a few more went in our list of the best new Android and iPhone games for the last week of March 2016. Check out all of them below and let us know your favorites in the comments.

Dream Machine is a beautifully made Monument Valley clone. And it's not just about copying the looks and the mechanics of that game (yes, the mechanics are mostly the same), but it's also about a different story line: you are just one robot, a 9to5 part of a system in a world with set laws and limits. But you fall off the production line and that's where your journey starts: to see and explore the world anew and discover that its laws are not as obvious and clear as they seem.
