    What makes Dawn of Discovery unique is its art style, which makes gameplay look like a moving painting.

    A breath of fresh air in a tired genre on the app store, and I'm looking forward to future games Ubisoft has to offer for the iDevices.

    The only downside is the game's short length. You'll probably blow through it in a day or two, depending on your skills.

    Ubisoft have boiled their PC title down to a simple gameplay mechanic, while keeping a high level of presentation that will keep strategy fans busy for quite a while.

    While differing from the main series, ANNO: The Harbor explores a new style of gameplay that proves franchises can have exciting new life on iPhone and iPod touch.
