Best Android apps this week

From zombie road rage to putting cat's heads on squirrels, we've picked the cream of the Android crop hitting Google Play this week

Zombie Driver THD

£4.35 Google Play

Zombie Driver was first released as a PC game on Steam back in 2009, and now it's available to Tegra-packing Android phones for the first time. Mixing cars, speed, explosions and zombies, it's a high-octane thriller packed with 31 different missions and unrelenting packs of the undead. With a whole host of crazy vehicles and upgradeable weapons at your disposal, zombie killing has never been so fun. Don't fancy the campaign mode? There's also the Blood Race Tournament and Slaughter mode to try out as well, giving you plenty of zombie-packed gameplay.

Photo Punch

£Free Google Play

If you like the idea of bringing a little bit more creativity to your smartphone snaps, Photo Punch allows you to mash a number of images together into one. First, pick the part of your image you'd like to "punch" out using the outline tool, then superimpose it onto your background image, or choose one from the Photo Punch library instead. No doubt hilarious consequences will ensue – putting a cat's head onto a squirrel's body is certainly what we'll be doing first.

Movember Mobile

£Free Google Play

It's that time of year once again, where men across the country ditch their razors for a whole month and leave their moustaches to grow freely. No, it's not a hipster invasion, but Movember  – an annual event to raise cash and awareness for men's health charities. This accompanying app allows Movember participants to request and track donations, update people on their Mo progress with statuses and photos, and even recruit people to join their Mo team. Step away from the razor and get involved.
