    JAM makes great use of the new iPhone's longer screen, but it doesn't offer much else that we haven't seen before.

    J.A.M. would have done better to double the level count, or tweak the upgrades so that it had more of the few purchasable items that felt exciting and optional. I'm far more inclined to throw my money at a game that feels like it respects my time, not one that feels like it's asking me to buy survival.

    What could be an intense side scrolling shooter with an interesting lock on missile system is bogged down in tedium and mediocrity.

    A nicely presented side-scrolling shooter that's undermined by flawed core mechanics and slow-paced, excitement-free action.
