New iPad games and apps of the week: Jurassic World: The Game and more

Hearthstone The Hidden Laboratory

The fifth and final wing of the single-player Hearthstone adventure Blackrock Mountain opened on Thursday. The new wing takes players through Nefarian's Hidden Laboratory full of twisted technology and experimental monstrosities. Players will have to defeat the Omnotron Defense System, Maloriak and Nefarian to unlock the final reward cards for Blackrock Mountain. You can learn more about The Hidden Laboratory and Hearthstone at battle.net.

The official Jurassic World mobile game has landed on the Apple App Store. The game is another building / card collector with lots of in-app purchases, no surprise there, but what is odd is it does not support any of Apple's older devices. The game can't be played on the iPhone 5c or older, iPad 4 or older and it doesn't support any of the current iPod touch models.

The game will be free on the Apple App Store until 05/07/15.
