    Very little skill is required to get through Castlevania Puzzle, just a burning desire to level your character up and get more weapons. Honestly, if you took the Match 3 aspect out of the game and just turned the battles into a standard turn based RPG affair, or even just simulated it all with no graphics, I would be much happier.

    Perfect Cell has some good ideas, but just suffers way too much from poor controls and some of the most cliched and repetitive level design I've ever set eyes on.

    Halcyon is not truly a must have game despite its intriguing air. Its gameplay does not yield more surprise after repeated play-throughs and so may grow tired quickly, even with the Game Center integration that is new in iOS 4.2. But what is here is fresh, engaging and fiercely challenging; if you're looking for something that's unlike many iPad games out there right now then you should get this one.

    There's a lot to like about Red Nova; it sweats the little details, and whilst it may not last for long it's certainly good fun.

    If it had a bit more polish and a better combat system, Phoenix Spirit would be a winner, but in its current form, I would keep it do genre fans only.

    It was enough of a throwback to remind me why I liked old school games, but forward-thinking enough to make up for those old games' shortcomings.

    Hand of Greed is the classic tale of a great idea that doesn't really pan out as well as I would've hoped.

    Great graphics, strong platforming mechanics and a mostly flawed (though sometimes smooth) combat system make Shadow Guardian a tough game to rate.

    Assault Commando is an alright shooter, just know that there are better (and cheaper) titles in the App Store.

    It's nothing extraordinarily new, and if you're sick to death of match-3's or already have one, this game isn't for you. If, however, you're a fan of the genre and need one for your iPhone or iPad, Babo Crash is a good choice.

    If you need a quick puzzle fix that is great for the lulls in your day, this fits the bill.

    In the end, it's not a game but a task manager; you don't play the Farmville app so much as you make it part of your workflow.

    I'm all for a good story, but tapping on arrows to navigate scene by scene is just tedious in todays marketplace… even on a mobile device.

    Anyone into either zombie games, or the dual stick control scheme, should give this game a shot. It's not an extremely deep game, but it does a nice job of combining zombie destruction, linear levels, and dual stick shooting into a nice brain eating package.

    There's a lot of replay value between the Phobic tokens, the keys, and the Plus+ leaderboards, and rolling through the levels is a lot of fun.

    Braveheart manages to entertain for a short while but then it quickly starts to wear thin.

    It's a lengthy adventure that rewards intellect over firepower, and that's reason enough for me.

    As a football game on the iPad, it's decent, but the Madden experience feels like it is not fully realized.

    Modern Conflict HD is a basic game that will surely suit some players' tastes, but taken as a whole it's rather bland. I'd rather be playing Galcon.

    For a quick iPhone romp, Naughty Bear really isn't a bad selection. It doesn't have a ton of depth and the whole gameplay aspect is lacking, but it is fairly entertaining.

    While able to be called "sufficient," considering there are no other licensed basketball titles in the App Store, NBA Elite 11 falls far short of what should be expected for an iOS sports game.

    The moral of this story is that if you are desperate for some football action, Gameloft would love to sell you a copy of NFL 2011.

    While prolonged play gets repetitious, it's perfect for a few minutes of undead fun.

    RISK is still a solid, fun game; how could it not be? Strategy fans and RISK faithful in particular should enjoy it; the epic, sprawling games are highly engaging. Just be aware that there are many, many clones…some of which surely outshine this stripped-down port.

    If you liked Riven the first time around, or loved Myst and never played Riven, you'll really enjoy this blast from the past.

    Aside from my micromanagement woes, I like the path that Legendary War takes with the graphics and the story. Both are rich with detail, but not so crazy that you don't know what's going on. In other words, it's pretty and in-depth, but never confusing or hopeless.

    At the end of the day, fans of immersive horror games will enjoy the fantastic cinematics of Hysteria Project 2. There's no question in my mind that this is the scariest game in the App Store, but it could be so much more.

    ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection might be a hard sell to those who have never played on a Spectrum or other 8 bit computer before. For those who have though, it's an ideal walk down memory lane and really reinforces how far technology has come.

    Charming fun. The puzzles are entertaining to solve and throughout, you feel relaxed playing it. It's soothing which is sometimes just what you need from a puzzle game.

    Samurai II: Vengeance visuals may impress, but the gameplay is roundly unimpressive.
