    Pretty much the only issue with Sonic CD is the controls; the d-pad is kind of small, but that's about it. The game holds up really well, and its relative scarcity in terms of re-releases makes it only that much more special now.

    Free-to-play or not, Real Racing 3 is a fantastic game that no iOS gamer should be without. Especially if they have Game Center friends to compete with.

    Stickets looks incredibly simple at first, but be prepared to sink hours into the three difficulty modes.

    Admittedly there aren't many endless falling titles on the App Store at the moment, but this game sets the bar for any others that might follow.

    As a fan of these "retraux" style games on iOS, I can say that Space Junk is a thoroughly-enjoyable experience on the platform. It's easy to control, is universal, is well-integrated with Game Center, and of course has that classic style of gameplay that harkens back to the old days of gaming. Fans of old-school shooters definitely need to check out Space Junk.

    Spunk and Moxie might sound brief, offering 30 levels, but it’s so much more than that. I’m hopeful for extra level packs in the future but that’s more than enough for all but the hardiest of twitch gamers. Patience is vital but there’s a heck of a lot to enjoy here.

    Its bright, pulsating immersive environments and game play will completely engage you audibly and visually (I was drinking punch and cooking a quiche, so all my senses were engaged), have your head and heart pumping and your thumbs wiggling throughout every level of play. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through its 33 levels over and again.

    Influenced by the likes of Blade Runner, Gemini Rue is a great adventure game, even if its puzzles are a tad simple.

    Those who enjoy combat games or those with a military theme will definitely enjoy Sky Combat. It is fun to play and crash-free; except when the crash is the result of enemy fire.

    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.

    Light Byte may look like just another matching game, but the overt simplicity and the subtle layers of complexity mesh wonderful. Pick it up, but don't expect to put it down.

    A great quality boxing title. It demonstrates the potential of iOS devices well, although it does hammer the iPhone's battery quite significantly after extended sessions.

    As long as players are willing to be patient or pony up a little coin, Coaster Crazy is an exceptionally fun trip into the deepest recesses of a creative mind. The open-ended gameplay and interesting challenges will keep players guessing, long after queue lines have been opened for business. Forget free-to-play, this is a definitely-should-play.

    If you have the slightest interest in physics based puzzle games, Ragdoll Blaster 2 is an extremely high quality option, and one that you'll be coming back to time and again.

    Vlambeer deserve credit for making a fantastic game, and along with Halfbot, they deserve a ton of credit for making this a shining example of how to bring this kind of game to mobile properly. Even after all the weapons were unlocked, I still found myself chasing after the unlockable characters and modes that require superhuman-level performances in order to succeed. This sets a high bar for other iOS releases to try and match this year.

    The involved narrative of Ravenmark is the icing on this multilayered strategy cake. The campaign story of political intrigue involving several different nations and subtle plays for power is the extra little push that will keep players hopelessly engaged with this game.
