    A solid freemium game. It has simple controls, a cool, retro, aesthetic, and is easy to pick up and play. The in-game purchases aren't necessary and the ads aren't intrusive, so be sure to give it a try.

    The controls make me question the future of such extraordinary titles on iOS devices. Rockstar Games has clearly done everything possible to make them work but there's still that sense that this would all be so much easier with a physical controller.

    Major puzzle fans looking for something faster paced should give this one a try.

    It's clearly obvious that Sugar High borrows a little too much from Tiny Wings but it will appeal to those whose Tiny Wings abilities have plateaued and who fancy a new challenge. The new additions to this game make such copying more forgivable, also, as they are fun.

    Tango Chase is a solid reflex and dodging based game. The game play isn't innovative, but it's simple and fun.

    Sky Gnomes is an interesting short-term play experience, but those that try it out should be warned: the temptation to spend money on IAP will hit. Progress just feels too slow otherwise.

    So, while this isn't a bad game, and I appreciate the work that went into the iOS version – the controls are a great fit for touchscreens, and hey, it's a universal app – it still feels like I've played this game before. Even if I really haven't.

    It's hard to knock a $0.99 iOS game for being too short, though. What Clear Vision does, it does extremely. It just doesn't do enough of it. At least not for my liking. Still, I think it more than deserves all the praise it's been getting up and down the App Store.

    A fun spatial puzzle game with a lot of levels to play. It's a solid casual game and is perfect for killing a few minutes.

    It's a curious experience, in spite of the battle pacing issues.

    Kitten Sanctuary doesn't reinvent the cheese wheel here (sorry), but the game successfully blends classic genres in an unexpected way that kept me playing far longer than I anticipated. It's a solid pick-up for casual gamers and cat ladies alike.

    It's frustrating to see the controls form such a pivotal step backwards for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Other than that, it's a great way of playing a highly enjoyable game for a much lower price than through console means.

    Pinch Peeps is a game with a fun core mechanic, and one that kids and adults looking for a simple distraction might just get some enjoyment out of.

    The inclusion of simple combat and magic make for a cool little platformer, but until the controls get an update or two it's not something I'd consider essential.

    There are only 24 levels. There's replay value because players can go back and try to finish each level with three bombs (the least amount of turns). But even after doing that, the total playtime of the game is relatively low for a $2.99 game.

    Even with all the content, for the current asking price it's difficult to recommend Gene Effect as something that will definitely be enjoyed. But as something peacefully simple but exceptionally pretty, Gene Effect will be right up the alley of many an iOS gamer.

    Robbery Bob's learning curve is gradual, and while the level designs are not the most innovative, there are enough incentives to keep fans replaying, with lots of checkpoints and frequent instructions to make moving forward easy for the less committed. Robbery Bob is not the deepest stealth game on the App Store, but for the price it's definitely worth checking out for short burst of shifty fun.

    While I actually prefer Bird Zapper's gameplay, Bug Assault has a fair bit to recommend it especially the unusual control mechanic. It's a solid pick, particularly for households with young gamers.

    Defender Chronicles 2 should satisfy those that want a unique spin on tower defense, or were clamoring for a sequel years after the innovative original game, though it is something of a flawed title.

    Tiny Troopers is fun in small doses and has the makings of a pretty cool casual war game. It's just that the soldiers' movements aren't entirely accurate. An issue that doesn't go well with permadeath. It's certainly entertaining in its own way, but requires a lot of patience to get anywhere.

    Although the gameplay isn't exceptional, No Red T-Shirts isn't a complete bust. Some may find it more suitable for children due to the graphic style of the game, and it also has an appeal to casual gamers.

    Catapult King does a fine job at bringing the popular physics puzzler genre to 3D, and even if it doesn't really do much more to move the genre in a new direction it's a fun game to play.

    Adventure Time: Legends of Ooo is short, and adults should have little problem with beating the game and getting the Game Center achievements. But for fans of the show, it's a rewarding experience, jnand for the price of a taco, worth checking out.

    While Trivi.al is a little heavily weighted towards US audiences and far from the most attractive looking of apps, it's a fun starting block for an enjoyable trivia experience. In-game chat keeps the competitive element steady and the free ad-supported nature of the game will ensure it's open to all. With the right community, this could prove popular.

    The edgy comic book intros and menu art make this game feel a lot like an exploitation film from the 70′s. That makes it very difficult to recommend the title for children, but more mature gamers will certainly have good fun with this game.

    Not a bad game. It's just kind of bland. Fans of Centipede might enjoy an iPad-friendly version of the game, and it does have gnomes in it. Everything is better with gnomes. It just doesn't take a lot of risks, doesn't do anything particularly unexpected.

    Velocirapture doesn't have the addictive element that other Adult Swim/PikPok games like Monsters Ate My Condo or Chuck Darwin's Extinction Squad have, but for a summer pick-up-and-play title the good looks, great sounds and solid gameplay are worth the $.99.

    This is a fine way to play a fine old game but to be clear, RayStorm is undeniably an old game.

    Technical issues aside, The Amazing Spider-Man is still a very entertaining game. It captures the spirit of being able to swing from building to building admirably and there's a ton of places to explore. It's that rare treat of a fun movie tie in game.

    Some simulations are much more heavy-handed than others, and Astronaut Spacewalk is certainly an example of such. It's got a plodding pace and very unforgiving physics, but it's also relaxing and oddly compelling. Whether or not someone enjoys the stellar hiking depends largely on their desire for action, naturally, but if nothing else this is a pretty interesting addition to the genre.
