    Vampire Origins provides solid shoot'em up action while avoiding the stale boring game play that so many titles in this genre reach. An achievement system through Crystal With good graphics, a respectable sound track, and complex puzzles, it's an easy recommendation for casual and hardcore gamer alike.

    Even with the relatively short gameplay, WackyLands Boss is well worth the $0.99 asking price. The level of polish alone is worth the price of admission, and getting to pound the heads of hundreds upon hundreds of little human soldiers just puts the game over the top.

    Don't judge DOOM Resurrection simply because it's "on-rails." It's actually an incredibly engaging and fun game that was truly made specifically for the iPhone. Yes, at $9.99 it's a bit pricy, but that's a worthy price to pay for one of the iPhone's best games.

    While Parachute Ninja isn't an instant classic, it does have all the ingredients for it to jump into the top 10 of the App Store. The graphics are smooth and crisp, the gameplay is easy, yet can get hard at later levels, and the concept is simple enough to swallow all player types. The Story Mode on its own would be enough to garner high priase, but with the addition of the Survival Mode, Parachute Ninja really is a must buy.

    At a low $4.99, this is an absolute steal. Just be prepared to kill your battery many, many times over.

    The game is visually a treat when it isn't distracting and its individually separated level segments differentiate it from other endless platformers.

    Egg vs. Chicken is one of those rare gems that I have to encourage as many people as possible to buy. It's cute, it's easy to play and it entices you into playing for much much longer than you'd envisage. It could well be the next Plants vs. Zombies or Angry Birds. It certainly deserves to be.

    Playing Tiny Wings, one just gets a feeling that this is a game that could be absolutely huge – from the ingenious unique gameplay to the charming protagonist and stunning visual style, all the elements for a smash hit are here.

    The combat is fun, the graphics are excellent, and from a technical perspective it's a phenomenal feat.

    Its bright, pulsating immersive environments and game play will completely engage you audibly and visually (I was drinking punch and cooking a quiche, so all my senses were engaged), have your head and heart pumping and your thumbs wiggling throughout every level of play. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through its 33 levels over and again.

    If you have the slightest interest in physics based puzzle games, Ragdoll Blaster 2 is an extremely high quality option, and one that you'll be coming back to time and again.

    If you are a fan of on-rail shooters, this game will fill your need for something new.

    If you love arcade racers, Raging Thunder 2 is one of the best available for the iPhone/iPod Touch platform.

    Speed Forge Extreme is an action packed space-themed racer which both looks and feels the part. In my experience I really felt like I was playing a WipEout spin-off (in a good way), plus the game's accelerometer controls are the smoothest I've seen on any App Store title to date.

    If you're only in it for multiplayer, you might feel a little restricted with only 5 maps and 5 guns to choose from, but the single player campaign more than makes up for this. I was truly impressed by the quality that's gone into it.

    The experience is just so overwhelmingly great, that it is absolutely worth playing, worth seeing and experiencing for yourself.

    High score junkies, retro gamers, and achievement hounds should really enjoy the classic fun provided by Dawn of Play's tribute to the early days of handheld gaming.

    One of my favorite games this year – even after completing all 100 of the levels (with a 5th world with a brand new gameplay mechanic coming soon), I still found myself going back to try and improve my scores.

    Snuggle Truck may have lost some of its message in its style transition, but the game is still incredibly fun.

    It's what I'd call a "safe" game. It doesn't try anything completely unique but it has a clean look, does what it does very well and offers up plenty of increasingly complex fun.

    With Foodies, the developers have created one of those 'must-have' iPhone games – a time-killer that deserves to be sat amongst the App Store's top games, able to trade punches with the likes of Angry Birds or Cut the Rope in both production aspects and sheer enjoyability.

    While Army of Darkness Defense suffers from repetition issues, they are minor quibbles in what is one of my favorite castle defense games on the App Store. Even for those who are not fans of the Evil Dead franchise, the game has enough fun, addiction, humor, and lasting power to make it a definite recommendation, especially for the paltry sum of $0.99 for the iPhone/iPod touch versions.

    I don't think I've played a better iOS puzzle game this year, and I recommend this game to all iPad owners.

    Aside from these minor gripes, Tower Defense: Lost Earth is a fantastic game. One that genre lovers and armchair generals should not miss.

    Personally, I think it's worth the price for anyone looking for a good RPG to have on-the-go – assuming they aren't already loaded down with iOS role-playing games, that is.

    It's cute, fun, easy to get into, inexpensive and (according to Chillingo) will be getting even more levels in future updates. Solving ecological disasters has never been so entertainingly surreal.

    Hard Lines is a little gem simply put. It's immensely enjoyable offering that 'just one more go' mentality. With its keen sense of humor (right down to the credits song which is very much worth listening to), Hard Lines keeps one step ahead of the pack making it an essential purchase.
