    I wanted to love this game from the bottom of my heart, I was ready to love it like I was a kid again, but the insistence on cheap challenges leaves me just short of unequivocally loving this.

    Assuming someone isn't looking for a single-player only game, there's plenty of entertainment to be had with Scotland Yard. It's easy to learn and lots of fun. Just know that it truly shines when played with or against other people.

    There are only 17 total "jobs" in the game for players to compete. This is simply too little. The levels don't take long to complete and, beside from boss battles, they aren't particularly challenging.

    Over the top in all the right ways, and it's fantastic because of it. The animation and great controls make this a fun use of $0.99.

    Avernum: Escape from the Pit HD will be quite an epic experience for anyone who enjoys this older style of RPG. The storyline is interesting, combat system is complex and enjoyable, and the graphics and music fit this type of game well.

    Bejeweled HD might be a little pricey for a game we've almost all bought at least once in the past, but it's a well rounded package. Each of the modes is enjoyable to play and ideal for a variety of different match three experiences. That "one more go" feeling is ever strong here.

    The graphics are a mix of upgrades and seemingly older assets. That there are pixellation issues at all is rather inexcusable for a sequel. The new backgrounds and user interface elements are crisp and clean-looking, while the little brain and distraction icons seem to be the exact same assets from the previous game. This feels a little like being cheated.

    Essentially, it's a soccer themed puzzle game. Figuring out the best route to take and lining up shots just right is the focus here. While it's not possible to deviate from the original plan, there are still some important physics to take into account. Unlocking Pro mode reinforces this as it takes line drawing speed into account which can change everything.

    Alive4ever mini is on the verge of being a brand new game rather than a sequel. It's perfect for fans of the series who need something to hold them over until the release of the third installment, but it's also great for anyone who is new to the series.

    Kotomon is definitely unique. Anyone who sees the screenshots and enjoys the art style should pick it up. Almost all will enjoy the gameplay because of how it mashes a few different gameplay styles into one game. For $2.99 as a universal app, this one's worth picking up.

    Extreme Skater has a gradual learning curve and keeps it simple, while including lots of extras for more serious players to enjoy. It's not the most intense extreme sports game out there, but for a light summer diversion it's a very solid, well-priced choice.

    Looked at on its own (which I'm not sure it deserves) it's an enjoyable enough romp with plenty of replay value. And it's free, and it doesn't really push purchases on me, so that's all to be appreciated. Still, it would be nice to see these values applied to new ideas on iOS a bit more, right? Ah who are we kidding.

    While I wasn't a big fan of the interface and menus, it was bearable until I noticed a problem. There's no way to individually remove pieces of the bridge.

    It might be heavy on the exposition and light on the camera control, but this is one solid free-to-play that usually always has something for players to do. Being the boss of a secret organization created to deal with extra-terrestrial activities sounds like a fantastic job, and thanks to Men in Black 3 I'm even more inclined to believe it.

    In the end, Rock(s) Rider isn't a failure; it just comes up a little short. With a little patience players can learn to work around the controls (for the most part), but a little tweaking would make a much-needed difference.

    There is something habit forming about Bee Leader. I'm not sure if it's the aesthetic or the gameplay that's doing it, but something keeps me playing until my fingers are sore. It's not quite a must-have, but definitely a great choice for a casual gamer's collection.

    Tiny Plane is simple in premise, but less so in execution, making it an ideal choice for endless fans looking for a ramped up challenge, and for those who prefer that their games build replay value based not on tricks, but rather on a compulsion to beat the machine.

    Fans of the other games in the Radiangames catalog, even those who have only checked out Super Crossfire, will enjoy Inferno+, especially with its upgrade system. It's not the best dual-stick shooter out there, but it's still plenty of fun.

    While Plague Inc. isn't ground-breaking iOS game, it's definitely one of the most refined. With features like self-mutating viruses, government collapses that actually effect the spread through a given country, unlockable virus classes, and an honest to goodness save feature (yay!), this is the apocalypse plague game to get.

    In the end, Expand It! is a fun (and cute) little distraction of an iOS game. It can get frustrating at times, but it does a pretty good job of merging rainbows, dinosaurs, and physics more often than not.

    While some of the elements that make The Naked Gun: ICUP unique and interesting also get in the way at times, it's still a worthwhile adventure. And while the jokes (like the game itself) can be hit-or-miss, when they hit they're an absolute riot.

    Pastry Panic is, quite simply, another pick-up-and-play iOS game destined for Classic status. There've been a lot of those lately, haven't there? Not that I'm complaining.

    Uplink was a fantastic breath of fresh air 11 years ago and it still feels just as exceptional now. It's the kind of experience that reminds you why gaming can be so rewarding.

    The one downside to Affliction: Zombie Rising's motion control is that playing the game on the go is a little troublesome due to the constant movement. However, it's a small price to pay for a survival horror game that uses its platform to scare in a gimmicky yet fun way.

    Disco Kitten is unique to say the least. The eclectic mix of gameplay, mechanics, visuals and music makes for a game that doesn't easily fit into many genres. This one-of-a-kind game is lots of fun and very challenging as well.

    Mutant Storm doesn't light the world on fire, but even as a 2005 re-release, it does some things differently enough on a structural level that it should engross fans of the dual-stick shooter.

    For the price Asphalt 7 is one of the best arcade racers on iOS. What it lacks in originality it makes up for in polish. Just don't expect a full console experience; it still feels like a mobile game.

    Mad Acorn hasn't much depth, but it does have some really nice visuals, the great art, and inherent replay value based on desire to get better, rather than through extraneous incentives. It's a great pick-up-and-play title and solid summer casual gaming choice.

    Fish Heroes won't win prizes for originality but it maintains a fun edge and it's consistently satisfying clearing a level with few fish. It's a great one to drop in on regularly to chip away at those 3 star scores.

    The game is enjoyable and somewhat addictive, but it's not the original. I can't connect fully to the experience. It's a dim looking-glass view of the past, which, in the present, is simply not the same.
