    Atari has succeeded in making Outlaw a far more palatable experience for iOS gamers. Unfortunately, they didn't try to do enough to help set the game apart from the crowd. The result is a forgettable shooter that doesn't achieve anything other than being unremarkable.

    Clear Vision 2 is a great follow up to the original game. It’s a lot of the same thing but I like that it keeps going with the same story and delves deeper into Tyler’s troubled life. Fans of the original will want to pick this sequel up, especially since it’s only $0.99. My only complaint is that it can be repetitive and the missions are short, but this can also be seen as a benefit for those only wanting to distract themselves for a few minutes during the day.

    Finger Physics: Thumb Wars does a good job at differentiating itself and adding the novel country competition mechanic, but the monotonous gameplay and frustrating menu layouts drag the game down.

    As a physics game, Greedy Penguins is run of the mill and standard, but as a puzzle game it really shines. The puzzles are clever, challenging, and super satisfying to figure out and complete.

    What we’re left with is a game that looks pretty awesome, but doesn’t live up to its visual style. PlunderNauts may be enjoyable enough to pick up and play a few rounds of from time to time, but the way it seems to fight players who want to play and enjoy it make it a largely frustrating experience.

    I really wanted to love Where's Waldo. The nostalgia factor is immense, and it's one of the best image-hunting games around. But it's crippled by so many technical flaws and poor decisions that I just can't immerse myself in it.

    The environments in Street Wrestler are simply gorgeous. The cell shaded art style, the detailed design, and the dynamically animated backgrounds all make this game one serious piece of stylish eye candy. The controls aren't flawless, but they work well enough that the player can focus on fighting bad guys instead the controls.

    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.

    Overall, Flipstones is a good little puzzle game which has been well thought out. However, for $1.99 the game could do with a few more modes and/or a multiplayer elements before I would recommend this.

    Shuffle Cats is a really good multiplayer rummy game that shows promise of getting better over time. It appears as though updates will come to the game providing more single-player content, and the connection issues should only get better from here. It may not be the deepest multiplayer card game out there, but it's dang fun and looks really nice.

    The gameplay of Galaga Wars is just too thin to support the layers of free-to-play systems stacked on top of it. If it was a more meaningful take on Galaga or more elegant in its monetization scheme, Galaga Wars would be a much better game.

    At the end of the day a portable game is only as fun as the number of times it can be replayed and NFL Flick QB lacks the staying power to justify a $2.99 purchase. While it isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, it is just a bit too much over our salary cap.

    The frustration factor of Gear Jack took this from being a solid auto-running platformer into another game on the scrap heap for me. This is the kind of game that despairs me: it's a title with such promise, but it gets chucked away by its frustrating level design. It's a shame.
