    Dragon Quest VIII for mobile isn't a flawless port of the PlayStation 2 masterpiece, but it's still well worth playing.

    Though we've seen plenty of similar titles before, ABOVE is much more challenging thanks to the unique (though simple) controls, and the graphics are nothing short of gorgeous.

    A beautiful situational simulation title with vibrant visuals. While I thought the game could benefit from more features, including the ability to create your own in-game characters and overall gameplay length to be a little short coming in at just under 24 hours, I found that the attention to detail within the game, coupled with a great storyline and in-game control mechanics made Artist Colony an enjoyable experience.

    If you are up to a brisk, "top down RPG-ish plane shooter" challenge, then 1951 – World War One may be the perfect game for you. It plays well and it is pretty… what more do you want from an iPhone game?

    It's fast, it's frantic, it's gorgeous to look at and it's unmissable for shooter fans.

    It's a huge amount of fun for the price and you'll find yourself easily spending hours trying to shave off a few precious milliseconds from your previous best time.

    Virtual City is well worth a purchase. It's a much friendlier version of SimCity and one that feels more enjoyable and less spreadsheet management- ish than other behemoth city management games.

    Sonic Spinball is an iOS version of the Sega Genesis game that was a hybrid of pinball and traditional Sonic gameplay that holds up well to this day.

    Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror is a fantastic game. The story feels as fresh and as entertaining as it did back in the day, and the slightly improved graphics are much appreciated. Many hours of entertaining storytelling lie ahead.

    Chu Chu Rocket is a faithful port of the 2000 Dreamcast puzzle game to iOS, where players lay down arrows to guide mice into their rocket, and cats away from that same rocket.

    It's a somewhat no-frills, yet highly polished package.

    Yes, I'd like to see some more content, but it's a good game nonetheless. If you like castle-destruction at all, be sure to give it a try.

    A fun, beautiful game that offers a good amount of entertainment. It's not a mind-blowing experience, but it is entertaining and very well-made. Just keep in mind that the blobs are only cute until they try and kill you with fire; then things start getting real.

    One thing is for certain: you'll never get the feeling while playing Phoenix that the screen could use a few more bullets.

    It's charming and cute. Most importantly, it's an absolute bargain for a game that has the addictive qualities of iPhone greats such as Angry Birds or Flight Control.

    NHL 2K11 is a good hockey game, and for the price, it's about as close to a must have as it gets.

    Meow Meow Happy Fight basically takes the dual-stick shooter genre, fits it to a deathmatch setting, and then injects a ton of style and character into it.
