    Knightmare Tower features a unique combat-based endless vertical gameplay, all without in-app purchases.

    The strategic planning of moves requires more forethought than is initially apparent. I wouldn't be at all surprised for this to become the next big iOS hit (especially if they lower the price for unlimited turns into realistic territory); Spry Fox could well have a winner on their hands here.

    Blot is a must play for those who like high score chasing. It takes a simple, proven idea, adds a couple of twists and wraps it all up in charming, hand-drawn artwork.

    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.

    The controls could use some fine-tuning and I found being unable to 180 without hitting a barrier frustrating, even while understanding that is essential to the puzzle component. Nonetheless, Beat Sneak Bandit has style, well-blended elements from many popular gaming genres, and a unique musical aspect that make for a innovative and pulsating good time.

    Zen Studios has shown that they truly are the future of the Jedi Knights, as long as players prefer flippers to lightsabers. Don’t think twice about pulling the trigger on this purchase.

    Agent Dash is loads of well-polished arcade fun, but Full Fat missed a chance to bring something original to the well-worn genre. Here's hoping they get more creative in an update soon.

    One Epic Game may be a tongue-in-cheek name, but as it turns out it's descriptive. Grip Games have been working hard on their PSN Minis, but it's this iOS release that puts them on the map for me – a job very well done.

    The environments and characters in this game are beautifully animated, each with it's own personality and flair. The controls are simple and the physics are solid.

    What it may lack in bells and whistles it makes up for in terms of sheer playability.

    Classically British in appearance and humor, Blue Toad Murder Files is a highly enjoyable whodunnit mystery with plenty of puzzles to entertain gamers.

    While Total War Battles: Shogun incorporates slightly simplified versions of tried and true strategy game mechanics, it blends them together incredibly well.

    So, if music, solar systems, and swiping around fingers in search of little pick-me-ups can be considered an amusing distraction, Starbloom would be among the champions of the genre. It is such a pleasant experience overall that it can easily be pulled out whenever there is need of a calm moment.

    Silverfish is a fantastic example of what you can do to take well-known genre influences and mix them up to make a fresh and addictive game.

    Squids Wild West may not be a game for those who are hardcore turn-based strategy fans, as the amount of entropy involved in the game does derail some of the careful planning. But for the Angry Birds set looking to get in to a new type of game, Squids Wild West is a fun introduction.

    It might take a few attempts before Cats Away truly picks up, but once it does it can be incredibly difficult to put down. Because it's super-fun and flippin' adorable. Although dog lovers might be somewhat immune to its charms.

    A lot of thought has gone into the whole game, from the retina display graphics, to the layout of the title screen; which allows you to scroll around to enjoy the hi-res graphics even more. Everything works, and works well.

    Challenged by physics and taunted by sassy bricks, the sun must "defend the planet and avenge the moon" in this delightful puzzler from Puck Loves Games.

    What Extraction has done is to find a way to boil down the normally complex shooter controls down to simple commands that can be issued seamlessly with one finger.

    The best part is that it's only $0.99, which is probably the best dollar gamers will spend this month and perhaps even this year.

    Amateur Surgeon 2 is one of the best experiences that you will have in the App Store. It's full of personality, has great graphics, and uses the touch screen to perfection.

    While it doesn't reinvent the zombie wheel, it fits into our Postapocalyptic-obsessed public life and represents well.

    Little Luca is a physics puzzler that takes a lot of simple elements and makes a wonderful game with a surprising amount of depth.

    With solid design that flows nicely and a purpose that is clear from the start, Throne of Swords is certainly worth shelling out a few modern gold coins here and there to buy up land, connect with fellow fans and players, and continue the journey.

    While Blood Brothers is nothing particularly new, it does offer a steady, virtual stream of rewards and pleasures for a gamer to behold.
