    The environments and characters in this game are beautifully animated, each with it's own personality and flair. The controls are simple and the physics are solid.

    While Total War Battles: Shogun incorporates slightly simplified versions of tried and true strategy game mechanics, it blends them together incredibly well.

    While there are a few bumps along the way, Polymer is an extremely impressive game even when forgetting that it's from a first-time developer.

    The RPG elements are light enough that they aren't overwhelming, yet compelling enough to be engaging. It's a definite must-play for fans of action-RPGs, and for those looking for a twist on the Super Crate Box formula.

    One of the best games I've had the privilege to review. With numerous guns, great graphics, and over 200 levels spread over multiple level packs, the app is a great deal for the $0.99 price tag.

    At its core, Lock 'n' Load is an average dual-stick shooter. However, it's executed in such an above-average way that complaints like that cease to matter. Plus, in one section players control a grandma with guns strapped to her wheelchair. Who wouldn't want to play that?

    Ski Safari is just plain old great. It's simple enough to get into right away, but has just enough intricacies to keep things interesting. The added tasks and quirky power-ups are also a big plus. Yet another high-quality runner to add to that ever-growing library.

    The entire package of Eliss is a delight. The art design has that retro feel that is not only the flavor of the day, but also fitting to the model of the gameplay.

    What really matters is the core gameplay, which is something that Punch Hero has nailed. I may never be able to dress my boxer in a robot costume, but I can still have plenty of fun without it.

    Yes, I got frustrated with the game. But aren't all good puzzle games frustrating at times? This is one of the better puzzle games that's been realized on iOS in a while. Check This Could Hurt out.

    The Sandbox is already one heck of a game, freemium or not, and it has nowhere else to go from here but up.

    With all of the mini-games, items, equipment and storyline, Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering is one of the better and most complex RPGs I've seen on the App Store in a while.

    Spider: the Secret of Bryce Manor is an impressive, original game due to its well-implemented controls, beautiful graphics, unique gameplay, and multi-layered, subtly presented story.

    The game was a flawless execution of a simple concept that is hard to put down. I played the game long after I felt comfortable writing this review. It has the same addiciting quality as Temple Run, but with gameplay that feels a bit more skillful.

    Slingshot Racing is a ton of fun. The quick sessions make it perfect for pick-up-and-play gameplay, the grappling hook mechanic is very easy to learn, yet difficult to truly master. Snowbolt and Crescent Moon have absolutely nailed this game.

    For a universal puzzle game with 100 levels at $0.99, there's no reason for any puzzle fan to pass this one over. Add Webbies to your "Puzzles" folder and call it a day.

    Air Mail definitely lives up to the promise that the game had when I first got to play it. This is a fun flying game that has the feel of a Nintendo 64 or Dreamcast classic with its colorful graphics and feel, and it's well worth the premium app price to check it out.

    Duckers is unique fun, even in the crowded endless genre on iOS. It's cute fun for all ages, and despite the clever naming and presence of Mother Duckers, it's worth playing beyond that novelty.

    Forget saying it's "good for a Freemium game," Heroes Call is just plain good. Better than good in some ways.

    Mega Run is still a fantastic auto-runner though. The choice for set levels was an inspired one, and it will take plenty of time to play and master them all. The fact that it looks great and has cloud saving is just the cherry on top.

    Little Things Forever won't appeal to those who like tons of action or marauding zombies, but for the mellower solving set and as a family activity it's a delight. It's also the rare game where I urge you to turn the volume up – even the music makes for a wonderfully addictive experience.

    The visuals are cute yet kind of twisted in a way not unlike a 90s Nickelodeon cartoon. Meanwhile, the music perfectly conveys the sense of fast, fun madness the game itself is going for. That's really Zombie Carnaval in a nutshell. It's fun madness, emphasis on fun.

    It takes a little while to hit its stride, but once it does it'll get its hooks in and keep them there. Just like all the others.

    Tennis is a glamorous and refined sport, and Virtua Tennis Challenge serves up a VIP pass to all of the action.

    Within moments I was totally floored by Project 83113's mechanics, action, and style. Don't be fooled by the cuddly mascot like I was at first; this is a fantastic action/platforming game that's well worth playing.

    Temple Run: Brave may be a nice change of pace for those who are still addicted to Temple Run, or got sick of Temple Run, and just need a change of scenery to get re-addicted.

    It's fantastic to see such a simple yet gripping idea be implemented quite so well. Just expect your iOS device battery to run low regularly. Not through inefficient coding but through the way that New Star Soccer makes two hours feel like five minutes. It's pure, unadulterated joy.

    Squids Wild West may not be a game for those who are hardcore turn-based strategy fans, as the amount of entropy involved in the game does derail some of the careful planning. But for the Angry Birds set looking to get in to a new type of game, Squids Wild West is a fun introduction.

    While it doesn't reinvent the zombie wheel, it fits into our Postapocalyptic-obsessed public life and represents well.

    Magic 2013 is one of the best iOS games I've played this year. Hands down.
