    Put together, Youda Survivor sounds incredibly intense. It's actually not. It's a relaxing yet satisfying time management experience that eases the player in gently. With branching paths within the campaign and some keen times set to acheive gold medals, there's a lot of fun to be had here for fans of the genre.

    Gridrunner, much like the rest of Jeff Minter's games on iOS, is a must-buy. He's actually one of the few developers that I would buy a game from as soon as I found out it was available, and I'll keep up with this.

    Puzzle Dungeons manages to balance fun, challenge, and progress quite successfully. Each of the three playable characters offers up a unique set of abilities (and by extension, strategies), and there's never any real punishment for failure.

    Thanks to microtransactions that hog the spotlight, Dropple may very well be one of the most generous free offerings released in this New Year. When the barrier to entry is this low, there is no excuse not to put the game through its paces.

    It turns out that sometimes the simplest of ideas really are the most fun. I was impressed to see just how fast time went once I got into Tasty Planet and found myself working my way through each level. My only complaint is that it might be a little too easy as there's a definite lack of peril here, bar larger things being able to reduce your size.

    The difficulty level is a little inconsistent with some puzzles proving much harder than others despite being earlier in the game. Other than that, however, The Hacker is a great idea that stands out from the crowd. Mini games alone might have made for a mediocre title but with the backing of an original interface and storyline, The Hacker is well worth a look at a bargain price.

    Baseball Superstars 2011 is still far from being a perfect game, and the changes in this year's version are really only minor tweaks to the overall formula. But the minor tweaks add up to make this a better game, in some ways, even if the pitching is still far from perfect.

    I did enjoy my time with Avengers Alliance, but it required a bit more patience than most freemium titles I’m used to because of all the down time. However, it’s still an entertaining game about recruiting a bunch of superheroes and fighting lots of supervillains, and who doesn’t enjoy stuff like that?

    I've just been having an absolute blast with Zombies and I can't wait to jump back in for more. An update with some slightly more forgiving hit boxes for the control sticks would certainly be nice, but it's nowhere near a necessity. Grab it. Play it. Love it.

    Fans of puzzle games will definitely get a kick out of Portaball, but its unforgiving nature and lack of any real graphics or sound will turn away some. If you can get past the utilitarian design, Portaball really is a good game.

    Even though I worry about Train Crisis HD+'s longevity, what's already there is certainly worth it.

    For a free game, Freekick Battle's core gameplay is compelling enough that those who don't choose to indulge in the shop shouldn't feel too cheated. Conversely, while its extra content is weird and superfluous, it's still a nice option to have. Freekick Battle is great for anyone looking for an on-the-go soccer fix.

    I was genuinely shocked when I'd first started playing Swing Away. It came out of nowhere, but it does such a good job of incorporating many a proven iOS game mechanic ("endless" gameplay, constantly changing goals, adorableness, etc.) that I have a hard time imagining it doing poorly. Hopefully this will help to spread the word.

    If this was a paid-for game, I'd recommend that any aspiring virtual pilots went out and bought it. It's almost like a fully featured, mobile version of the HAWX games we see on consoles. The fact that its free, however, means it should certainly be trialled. Even if the always-online requirement can be a bit of a pain when not connected via WiFi.

    iBomber Attack lives up to the quality of the rest of the iBomber family. The graphics are sharp and clean and the gameplay will keep players on their toes.
