Walking Dead: The Game

Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time

Doctor Who devotees can now play at being the time lord himself. There's an innocent family to protect, seven unique locations to explore, and lots of Daleks, Cybermen and Silurians to defeat, using a variety of puzzles, challenges and mini-games.

Dexter the Game
iPhone, iPad

Dexter the Game has you filling the blood-spattered shoes of Dexter Morgan: a crime scene technician by day and a vigilante bad-guy killer by night. The game is based on season one of the TV show, but it doesn't matter whether you've seen it already or not - there's a great variety of gory graphics, gripping dialogue and immersive cases for older gamers to enjoy.

CSI: Miami

Put your pop culture knowledge to the test with Ellen's Know or Go trivia game, based on the popular segment from her talk show. It's a fun game with cute graphics and dialogue; the only downside is that a lot of the questions are US-centric.
