Apple says that "Love You to Bits+ is a charmingly cute, purely visual, puzzle-filled, point-and-click, sci-fi adventure spanning all around the universe," and that's all you really need to know. Beyond that, developer Alike Studio says that gamers "will follow the journey of Kosmo, a clumsy, rookie space explorer in search of Nova, his robot girlfriend. After a fatal accident, all of Nova’s pieces get scattered in outer space! So now Kosmo wants to retrieve all Nova’s bits, rebuild her, and get back together."

If that doesn't sound like a fun time, what does? You can register for your download (opens in new tab) of Love You to Bits+ today.

While not all of these titles will benefit from a game controller, you really ought to consider picking one up if you're serious about your mobile gaming. Be sure to check out our list of the best iPhone game controllers before you do!
