    It's one of those games that's obviously been designed specifically for iOS users, the current crop of iOS users that have grown accustomed to quality portable titles, from the ground up. It probably shouldn't be missed.

    Don't expect to make any masterpieces in Sketch Nation Studio, but the value here is in enabling the creativity of users. It's about taking a silly idea to fruition easily, and reveling in the creation of others along with it.

    Every pixel in Gun Runner is placed as a solid homage to the 80′s titles that inspired it. Even the heavy metal bleeps and bloops of the 8-bit soundtrack are perfect for a quick trip back in time with a shiny new game.

    It's similar in style to Tetris and Snake, but it has enough originality to keep gamers from feeling like they've never played it before. With progressively challenging levels and a huge number of stages, it's definitely worth adding to the game collection if you can get past the IAPs.

    Pinch 2 HD can be a real brain-teaser, with levels that are extremely challenging, especially if the player's goal is to collect all the medals. It requires a lot of outside-the-box thinking, and can be maddening at times.

    It's a very well made game, with highly polished visuals and very responsive controls, it's a lot of fun, and a heap of frustration is relieved by the "so close" message that appears when being one move away from completing the level, saving me from going around in an endless circle.

    Trials 2 HD veterans might feel a little cheated by the level of difficulty here, but they'll still find fun to be had. For the lesser mortals like me, it's a great way of reaping the benefits of such a genre with less frustration!

    Blade Lords does get points for really trying to do something different with the one-on-one combat experience by going down a familiar route. While I'd like to see less monetization influence and more pure fighting game influence added, this is still interesting enough to check out for fighting fans.

    Wingsuit Stickman is a fun game that takes full advantage of accelerometer controls. But it can be quite challenging. I would NOT suggest this game to someone with a short temper when it comes to games. I have a friend that I'm quite sure would through an iPhone if I got him to play this one.

    The game mechanics tie together neatly so Grow Away! proves to be excellent fun. Levels gradually work their way up in terms of difficulty, ensuring that players never feel too out of depth or patronised. Grow Away! is near guaranteed to offer hours of vegetable flinging fun.

    Zombies as a cultural phenomenon may run the risk of being passe' and overdone very soon (My prediction? The zombie bubble collapses when a broadcast TV network decides to make their own ripoff of The Walking Dead), but thankfully Zombieville USA 2 does a great job at interpreting a classical genre in the modern era.

    Undead Slayer is really entertaining. It controls well, it's simple, yet uncannily deep. It looks good, and despite the painful dialogue, shallow story, and lagginess, it's a solid hack-em-up. Lively and outrageous, we had a blast with this one.

    This game is unique: a truly hardcore mobile game. I don't mean that in the sense that it's like N.O.V.A. 3, but that it is for a player who wants to combine mobile gaming convenience with an experience that requires serious commitment.

    Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years is a lot of fun. I definitely enjoyed playing it and found myself repeating levels I had already cleared just to see if I could get a better score. The variety of vehicles, add-ons and number of levels help make this great game a lasting experience.

    Bejeweled HD might be a little pricey for a game we've almost all bought at least once in the past, but it's a well rounded package. Each of the modes is enjoyable to play and ideal for a variety of different match three experiences. That "one more go" feeling is ever strong here.

    Zombie Slash clones Fruit Ninja to a ridiculous level, but for those not bothered about innovation and originality, the game offers plenty of spooky fun that's ideal for the Halloween season.

    A great little retro arcade game – and I mean arcade in the truest sense. This feels like something that could have been made in the 1980′s and just recently unearthed.

    Definitely one of the most difficult tower defense games out there. Beating the first level in itself is a chore, even on easy mode.
