    Ballistic SE will make fans of the genre very happy. It looks and sounds great, controls well and will keep the player coming back to best their high scores.

    Super Cosmic Word Snake is a simple, yet addictive game that's best played with two players. How often can that be said about an arcade game on iOS?

    This game demonstrates just how much strategy must be involved when stumbling around a bathroom, all through Flight Control-esque controls.

    The first three Phoenix Wright games have made their way to iOS with sharper visuals and a reworked UI. No more excuses.

    Overall I think Sketch Up is a fun and a unique way to experiment with shapes. It has a good, fast-paced tempo that will keep players on their toes as they attempt to complete each level with all three stars. Sketch Up has a lot to offer and has enough variations to keep players wanting more.

    Random Heroes 2 includes more weapons, more levels, and otherwise trumps the original in every conceivable way.

    While incredibly similar to a favorite of mine, Tentacle Wars HD simply wasn't quite as fun. I enjoyed the first set of levels, but, after a while, I just got bored.

    For the novice however, Slewpi is pretty impressive.

    Stoneship makes a wonderfully light distraction. It's the kind of game you plan to play for five minutes then realise an hour has passed already.

    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.

    As an adult, I found the games to be rather simple, although embarrassingly I was terrible at the timed events. But children will find the character very charming and fun to watch, and the games themselves will keep them entertained for some time.

    Agent, Run! is a fun runner with a twist that's entertaining rather than gimmicky.

    An imaginative WWII-era thriller.

    Penumbear is a shadowy puzzle-platformer that succeeds thanks to both the sheer amount of levels and the variety presented within them.

    The Seed is a physics-based puzzle game that combines elegant artwork, an engrossing narrative, and enjoyable gameplay.

    Sago Mini Monsters is a creative and charming early app for children will a fun monster theme.

    This one's a definite battery-drainer and well worth the price. Not counting the possibility of spending more money on credits, of course.

    There's little else out there on the App Store quite like Fishing Superstars which benefits it greatly. It's a fresh take on a very traditional hobby and really quite enjoyable.

    Order Up! To Go is a solid time-management game for those looking to become the next "Top Chef." Despite the freemium version's ad-stricken gameplay, there's a lot of addictive potential to be unlocked.

    This one probably comes more recommended for those who want a challenge provided by a meta-game as opposed to just the game itself. Otherwise, this is a fun 16-bit romp that fits well on the touchscreen.

    I'd love to see a console port and a sequel would probably make me vomit tentacles of joy. There's certainly plenty of untapped material in Lovecraft's shared universe to work with.

    A Facebook favorite comes to iOS, but on this format, it's not the King of the Card Game pack, just yet.

    Slipping and sliding around areas is more fun than smashing walls down, but Escape from Age of Monsters makes up for any potential tedium with its beautiful art style and varied selection of power-ups. It's a fun ride that will keep players coming back for more for a while to come.

    Shining Force is an underappreciated classic, and while its age sometimes shows, it is a good port by Sega to iOS, and a great representation of a strategy RPG worth checking out to this day, at a fair price.

    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.

    A gem, and a nice change of pace for those who don't think of catapulting birds or slashing ropes as true puzzles.

    Boom Brigade 2 is an interesting mash-up of defense and line-drawing, but it pulls it off with gusto. It's fun, easy to play, and has plenty of incentive to keep doing so thanks to all the bonus stages and un-lockable upgrades.

    Solid edutainment. It's far more fun than any social studies class I ever took, that's for sure! This one's a good choice for the young, and the young at heart, so they can learn while they defeat evil aliens.

    Mad Cows' concept is not entirely original – it does skew very close to Angry Birds with some slight unit differences, its multiplayer is quite fun. Those who haven't yet had their fill of physics puzzlers might just enjoy this.

    Much like the Trials series and Mad Skills Motocross, there will be swearing under your breath but also that urge to come back for more.
