Welcome to this week's Weekly App Roundup! Each week we'll be shining a light on the latest and greatest apps available for your phones and tablets. This week we're taking a look at two new iPhone games and an app that helps keep ANZ customers' online banking secure.

Rules!
$2.49
iOS

Rules! is a new game from the developers who brought Carcasonne to iOS.

It's a little tricky to explain, but Rules! is essentially Simon Says; each round the player is presented with 16 tiles and a certain rule to follow, such as "tap numbers in descending order" or "tap greens". After completing the first rule, you are given a new one to follow. Completing the second will require you to then complete the first one again, but this time unprompted; the game will say "complete rule 1" rather than "tap greens". Bonuses are given for speed and accuracy. This continues up until you have completed 10 separate rules, at which point you start again with just one rule again.

Rules! oozes with charm and personality, and is incredibly addictive. Perfect for pick up and play gaming sessions.

ANZ Shield
Free
iOS, Android

ANZ Shield brings 2-step authentication to ANZ's online banking. Enabling the service allows ANZ customers to enjoy extra security while banking online. Certain transactions can be configured to require a one-time password generated by the app, helping reduce the possibility of fraudulent activity.

Godus
Free
iOS

Godus is a god game designed by Peter Molyneux, renown for Black & White, Fable and Populous. The PC version of the game was funded via Kickstarter, and while development has not yet finished, an iOS version has been made available. Godus sees players building their following, building their world and fighting rival gods. The game translates well to mobile devices, the stylised graphics look great, and the gmaeplay has the potential to be quite engaging. Unfortunately, Godus is overly reliant on in app purchases: it's only possible to play about a minute of every hour without spending real world money.
