Mostly this involves poking, prodding and swiping to work out the mechanic of each level but a few of the levels have obvious mechanics and the challenge is in the actual solution. Good fun either way.

54. Escape the Lighthouse: this appeared in the Related Apps section in the Play Store and, inspired by Russ, I gave it a shot. If this is the same game he played then (and I've no idea if it is) it's little wonder he's rattling through them as it had about three easy puzzles and took ten minutes to bang through, hampered only by the shittiness of the interface. The graphical style is really nice but I doubt I'll playing more from the series as it's wasn't a very good example of the genre. ETA: actually I'm pretty sure now it's not from the same series Russ has been playing as they're all of the format "Can You Escape from X" and this wasn't. Also there is an actual "Can You Escape from the Lighthouse" on the Play Store, along with loads similar from the same dev, so I imagine that's the set Russ has been going through. I'll probably give one of those a shot instead now

55. Can You Escape The Lighthouse?: it turns out I could. Or, at least, as far as it would let me given that this was apparently the first game in a series. It was longer than the previous one but the puzzles were less logical in places, the graphics were much worse and it required pixel perfect tapping in some cases to interact with objects; so something you thought was just a bit of background turned out to be critical when you tapped it for the umpteenth time. Which is a cardinal sin in these type of games and means I won't be playing any more of them from that developer.

56. The Last Of Us: Left Behind: the story, voice-acting, setting, etc are all stellar stuff as you'd expect. My only criticism is that
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
the ending just fades way when I was expecting something more. I genuinely assumed that you'd see the death/transformation of whatsername as a way of revealing Ellie's immunity to her in an incredibly bitter-sweet way but nope, it just fades away.
My issues with the combat are well documented and in the final encounter I initally hit the same wall I sometimes hit in the main game (after pretty much breezing through the whole rest of the game). I stopped battering myself against it and watched a video of someone else playing part of it just to get some idea for techniques then went back and restarted the entire encounter. This time through I genuinely enjoyed it, despite still getting murdered a couple of times, and was almost sad when it finished. I genuinely didn't realise that you could thin most of the herd out with silent knife kills, or use the brick/bottle to stun them first, and after that it was pretty easy. I was worried about using the knife because I seem to remember it being very easily broken in the main game but in the DLC it seemed to last for as long as you want. Indeed I would argue that things become too easy in parts when you realise that (a) setting infected on humans is a total piece of piss and always results in the humans getting wiped out, plus (b) stealth killing infected with the knife is trivial. There's the odd moment when end up in an actual fight and at that point everything goes to shit but it's far from inevitable. And I realise that the gunplay being scrappy and awkward is sort of the point in terms of emulating this world they've built but it's still fucking awful and annoying to actually play.

57. Hear Star: puzzle platformer for Android that has you swapping between two characters to get them both to the level exit. Bits of level furniture are colour coded and can only be interacted with by each character--though they can move and stand on other and--so using these properties is the meat of the game. It's well presented and easy to control with the only criticism being that it's a bit too easy to breeze through it's 60 levels.

It used myp for me and I genuinely believed it was him. This led to much confusion when I asked him what he was gibbering about and he had no idea what I was going on about.
