'Slayin' is the latest fun little game to take the paid App Store by storm, it's still apparent that most people aren't very good at it.
The game itself is simple. Just pick from the wizard, knight and knave, then kill as many monsters as possible without dying. Because once you're dead, that's it - game over.
Fortunately, while over on the 'Free' iTunes charts the game at the top spot is almost impossible by design, it is actually possible to get better at Slayin' without altering the fundamental properties of reality.
Here are our top 9 tips for getting better at Slayin', without using cheats.
1. Always buy armour. If you can afford it, armour is a must. It basically doubles your health and means you're much more likely to survive for at least a little bit longer.
2. Unlock the other characters as soon as possible. Using HP you can unlock Slayin's wider cast of characters - and almost immediately the game gets a lot easier and more fun. Make this your first task.
3. Use the Wizard's tornado wisely. For while it makes you invincible for a short time, it does tend to end just as another attack is incoming. Make sure you time your attacks and tornado to make the most of your chance.
4. Know how to kill the minotaur. When you meet the minotaur for the first time, you'll probably die. You don't have to. Just jump over him as he runs past, and then attack him when he's facing away from you. Repeat until he's dead and continue on your way.
5. Buy the Dragon Scale when you can. If you can afford 5,000 fame points, get the Dragon Scale as it will let you continue after you die.
6. Loot disappears quickly. Grab it before it does.
7. If things are too busy, pick one side of the screen to dominate and then work across from there.
8. If you rate Slayin on the app store, you'll get 500 fame points for free.
9. Let some loot go. If it means staying alive, let the gold go. There will be more.
The upcoming Xbox One and 360 shooter features massive, hulking mechs, wall-running soldiers and the most intense multiplayer we've tried all year.
For sheer scale and depth, no upcoming game can match Destiny - the open-world shooter from the minds behind Halo.
The original 'Thief' was one of the classic stealth FPS games, and the reboot due on current and next-gen consoles 25 February looks to be carrying on that fine legacy.
Think GTA V meets George Orwell's 1984, set in Chicago, through the filter of The Matrix.
Mario Kart 8
Nintendo would have to do something astonishing to screw up this instalment of Mario Kart, which so far looks like a riot.
Super Smash Bros
Sonic fighting Mega Man, the woman from Wii Fitness and the villager from Animal Crossing. What else do you need to know?
We don't know a huge amount about this mysterious open-world action adventure for the Wii U. But the trailer is pretty enticing - and the development team at Monolith rarely do anything but deliver the goods.
Drive Club is the exclusive racing game the PS4 needed at launch, but lacked. It's certainly beautiful, and detailed, but we're hoping for subtly enhanced gameplay from the pretty staid title we played at Gamescom.
Dark Souls 2
Dark Souls has the hardest-core fanbase you can imagine - this endless, massively difficult questing game is not for everyone, but if you love it you'd probably die for it. The sequel looks immense.
Bayonetta was a ridiculous, combo-filled romp that divided people for its "enthusiastic" (arguably sexist) aesthetic, but thrilled with its fast-paced gameplay. The Wii U exclusive sequel promises more of the same - and a welcome shot in the Gamepad for Nintendo's console.
