    It's more involved than a typical corridor flyer, looks great, plays well and is absolutely loaded with challenge. The price might look a bit scary, but I think fans of this kind of game will get their money's worth here.

    Kingdom Rush offers enough variety in towers and enemies to take up more than a few minutes of someone's time, especially those who enjoy a very well done tower defense game. And this is one of them making it an easy recommendation to buy.

    Mooniz is one of those iOS gems that hits an almost perfect balance between accessibility and nuance. Absolutely anyone can pick it up and just "get it" within seconds, but it'll take a lot more than mere comprehension to get even remotely close to the top of that scoreboard.

    The game was a flawless execution of a simple concept that is hard to put down. I played the game long after I felt comfortable writing this review. It has the same addiciting quality as Temple Run, but with gameplay that feels a bit more skillful.

    As someone who grew up idolizing fictitious cartoon characters each weekend, such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I was instantly drawn to Seal Force. It plays to that particular audience incredibly well. However, it's more than just a nostalgia trip. It's also a clever mash-up of two popular iOS genres that, surprise surprise, work quite well together.

    Red's Kingdom's individual components are all very familiar, but they're constructed in a way that I haven't really seen before. This makes playing it feel both fresh and comfortingly familiar. As a puzzle game, it's top-notch, and it just so happens to be a pretty great adventure game too. There's very little out there quite like Red's Kingdom, so you should go pick it up and try it for yourself.

    I could see Card Thief being a disappointment to those who like Card Crawl's straightforward translation of dungeon-crawling into a Solitaire game.

    Overall, Amoebas Attack is a dual stick shooter worth exploring if you're in need of a fun freemium title or if you're a fan of this genre. It's got enough going on for it to keep players occupied for longer than five minutes, but at the same time it can get repetitive the longer gamers play.

    The boost mechanic is what makes Rock Runners feel truly special. Performing a perfect run on a level, all while boosting, feels so smooth and rewarding that you just want to do it again on the next stage. Although there are some issues with in-game hitching (that, and the pause menu could use a count-down timer on resume), there is very little negative to say about Rock Runners.
