Don't get bored if the weekend's a washout

To ensure you're not bored while you're stuck indoors this bank holiday weekend, as predictably it'll be raining, we've compiled a list of some of the most promising and interesting apps released this month on the iPhone and iPad.

Chaos Rings

Availability: iPad

Developer: SQUARE ENIX Co.

Price: £9.49

This title, which has some of the nicest graphics for an iPad game we've seen so far, should be popular for fans of the Final Fantasy series and otherturn-based RPGs.
