    A great title to play if you're a fan of Lunar Landing style games. It offers a perfectly pitched difficulty curve and its developers haven't forgotten to consider presentational aspects, as demonstrated by the sterling comic book and soundtrack.

    This physics puzzler is great to look at, and fun to play, if not a bit challenging. But, it wouldn't be much of a puzzler if it didn't puzzle you, I suppose.

    A great concept and a great twist on the bullet hell formula. At its low price, it really is worth a shot and you'll no doubt find yourself impressed by the graphical style.

    Quite fun at times, but its controls can make the game more frustrating than it ought to be. Still, if you love retro-inspired games, and especially the Llamatron and Robotron games, or just want something a little different from the typical arena shooter, Minotron: 2112 is a solid purchase – and at worst, it's interesting reading material.

    While Collision Effect is fun and engaging in Action mode, its Puzzle sibling feels somewhat incomplete, as if it were thrown in as an afterthought to add depth to the game.

    It is brilliant and beautiful, but the control issues put a real damper on my enjoyment of the game.

    While it's got some room for improvement, it has a lot of good things going for it, has plenty of value and challenge in its 65 levels for $1.99 and is a concept that I hope gets explored even more in future updates and future games.

    Excluding the weak mini games, Tapper World Tour is pretty good fun. It's not long before it's quite tough, but it is fairly addictive.

    Delivers a fun, challenging experience for anyone with an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. While the game can be played for free online via a flash version, the added tilt controls and portability of the iOS version makes it worth the buck it costs to own.

    A great experience for fans of the movies, but there isn't much to go back to after the story ends. If you're a fan of point-and-click style games, and if you even remotely enjoy Back to the Future, then this game is great purchase.

    Hot Springs Story isn't quite as gripping as Game Dev Story. Its subject matter being not quite as clearly enjoyable as the earlier game, plus it's really quite a serious sim, with no sign of the humor of Game Dev Story. However, in turn it's a deeper experience with more to it. This ensures that Hot Springs Story is still a great game to play, just not quite as wondrous as its predecessor.

    Bird Zapper manages to be fun in a way that many similar games aren't, and I think that speaks to the attention to detail present here. Bird Zapper feels slick, and it's truly fun to play-even if it isn't the most original game in the App Store, Bird Zapper excels where it counts.

    Operation Wow offers a great homage to arcade classic Operation Wolf.

    Angry Birds Rio HD may not be all that innovative, but it's still Angry Birds. It's still remarkably fun and addictive. If you've played a ton of the original and Seasons versions and need more, then definitely give this one a whirl.

    These are the kinds of titles that can set the platform apart as one of the truly unique experiences in gaming. It is definitely well worth a look, especially when you consider that the base game is actually free.

    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.

    Admittedly, it might feel a little bare, but Lane Splitter is a very fun, arcade-style iOS title. Definitely worth a buck.

    With very rich, vibrant colors and some solid match 3 game play, Piyo Blocks 2 is a great game for anyone looking for a challenge.

    It is very old school in its approach and doesn't ease you in gently. With 30 hours of gameplay on offer though, RPG fans would be mad to overlook it however. It's a tremendous piece of gaming history and still holds up well to this day.

    You'll have your fun with it, but not too much until you pay.

    Easily one of the better-designed platformers I've played on iPhone. And considering it's only a dollar, it's hard not to be impressed.

    While Pac'n-Jump is hardly the most original game on the App Store, it certainly adapts from its inspirations well and offers plenty of fan service along the way. Fans of the endless ascension platformer genre could do far worse.

    A great little retro arcade game – and I mean arcade in the truest sense. This feels like something that could have been made in the 1980′s and just recently unearthed. This is 'retraux' in incredibly fine form, and well worth checking out for fans of arcade games and fans of retro-styled games.

    Air Penguin is the perfect example of a quality casual game. It's simple yet gives you reason to keep playing. Plus it's fun to drop into for five minutes at a time or for much longer too.

    Simply put, You Don't Know Jack is the kind of experience that not only stretches the mind with challenge, but inversely massages it with humor to ease the blow of defeat.

    There's certainly enough to enjoy here and with the promise of a level editor in a future update, there's a very good reason to keep Woozzle on your iOS device for a while to come.

    It is an addictive, casual experience that lends itself to short bursts of portable gaming bliss.

    Games like Bunny The Zombie Slayer are an amusing illustration of how fun simplistic themed games can be successful as long as players are not fixated on an extended experience.

    Anyone looking for a fresh take on an emerging genre should plop down the pocket change and go for a dive with Squid Drop.
