    The virtual joystick and buttons can be a bit unresponsive and sluggish at times, but they work well enough to allow players to enjoy the game.

    Players can view stats and achievements for each game, which is really nice. The app tracks many different stats and even will display the info in a chart. Word Chums has a ton of content and everything anyone could want, except a lower price, from a word game.

    Dungeon Nightmares is truly one of the most immersive and scariest experiences on iOS for some time.

    As a big Solitaire fan, I found myself struggling to tear myself away from perfecting each of the 24 free holes and I'll certainly be investing in future courses that are unlocked through $0.99 in-app purchases. It's one of those rare games that makes time go speeding past. It might not take long to complete the free courses but it's hard to begrudge putting the money down for new courses, especially for the Solitaire fan.

    I love grappling hooks, and this game is chock-full of hooking action.

    Moon Control is a little like Lunar Lander and Flight Control cranked up to 11, making for a pretty intense reflex game.

    Other than the screen limitations however, Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds is a pretty solid hidden object style game. Offering a bit more to the genre than just spotting objects, there's some extra longevity here and the 12 chapters in all feel sturdy enough in length to make the asking price of $4.99 reasonable.

    As an advertising tool for the actual event, World Series of Poker is a great free game that offers plenty to see and do. If you are in any way curious about the lifestyle or in any way talented in the ways of Texas Hold-em, it is an app well worth downloading.

    Diver Dogs is the cutest undersea animal rescue game on the App Store, by far.

    Continuing the dark trend started by the first episode, Cognition: Episode 2 is a sometimes quite brutal serial killer focused adventure game.

    Pinball Arcade is an impressive title, and one that is bound to please pinball fans. It's a shame a couple of issues get in the way.

    Fury of the Gods is tough at times, at least until learning the value of using abilities over straight tapping, but it’s more than enough fun to make up for it. The small stable of gods to play as still offer plenty of levels to enjoy and plenty of abilities to unlock and upgrade.

    Help get jellyfish to safety in this gorgeously flowing roguelike of a sort.

    Cross Fingers is a very serene and intelligent game, and feels like something you can only experience on the iPhone. It's a great puzzler, as well as a nice demonstration of what some multi-touch can offer.

    Were it not for the fairly hefty price and just as hefty storage requirements (1.2 gigs) I'd easily recommend Spectral Souls for any strategy RPG enthusiasts. I'll recommend it anyway, actually, but these are some factors that are most definitely worth weighing.

    In an age where far too many physics puzzle games try to stump the audience into submission, Tito’s Shell proves that variety can be just as fun. Though the title may not be overly long, the process of perfecting each level could end of being a tremendous time suck. Never has venturing into the deep dark unknown sounded like so much fun.

    Hybrid games can be tough to pull off, but Foursaken Media makes it look easy. Not only is Block Fortress great, but it does a wonderful job of catering to all three of its core game types. Fans of just about anything should definitely think about taking the $1.99 plunge.

    If you are eager to take on new challenges with your favorite birds, then dropping $0.99 on Angry Birds Rio is a no-brainer. For those who have Angry Birds fatigue and have had their fill, there is nothing dramatically new to pull you in.

    Roll Back Home may have an incredibly familiar platformer structure, but it's what it does with its look and how it feels that make it worthwhile.

    Big Win Blackjack does blackjack and it does it well. It's just that that's about all it does. But if that's what an iOS user is looking for, then there's no reason for them to avoid it. Especially since it's a free download.

    Sideways Racing makes for a great arcade racer. Harking back to the old days of top down racing is an excellent move and it makes Sideways Racing all the more endearing.

    The great controls and unique gameplay make Day Night a fun game with plenty of challenge. Definitely something here for players looking for something different.

    Of all of Knizia's games, Kingdoms is definitely one of the less immediately accessible examples. That said, it can also be one of the most rewarding and entertaining once that barrier for entry is broken down. Although I think I'm always going to hate that stupid dragon tile.

    An ideal stress reliever. It might take a little while to get going but once it does and some upgrades have been unlocked, it's quite fun despite its repetitive elements.

    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.
