    Leaping Legend is not a perfect game, but is one that's entertaining enough to be worth playing.

    Kavinsky doesn't quite work as a fully formed game, but it's a vaguely interesting mix of beat em up and driving action.

    After three years away, the NHL 2K brand returns to mobile. Can it live up to the advancements made in its absence or will it be left chasing the puck?

    More slot machine than Tower Defense, Area 777 soon turns tedious.

    This racing game has a great sense of speed and unique mechanics, but its free-to-play structure keeps it from racing to the head of the pack.

    Despite the hype, Godus is another freemium civilization building game. One that's incredibly slow to progress in.

    Star Wars: Trench Run gets the vibe right, but the overly simplistic and repetitive gameplay is not the most compelling.

    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.

    Bluntly put, it does not even come close to what is expected from a 3D rendered iOS environment. That said, it is very obvious that the game was a labor of love that is well worth exploring further.

    Zynga's latest free-to-play entry promises a fun ride full of fantasy tropes, gorgeous visuals, and plenty of achievable upgrades along the way.

    Six Guns feels like a missed opportunity. While it starts off an enjoyable enough romp, the issues mentioned start to have an impact on the overall enjoyment.

    Gnus Revenge is a treat to look at and adds several elements to space-physics games that Angry Birds Space doesn't have, but bad timing is bad timing.

    RPM: Gymkhana Racing is a good racer, but it's also drastically different from the norm. Fans of drifting should have no trouble jumping right in and enjoying themselves, but those more used to more typical kinds of racing should be prepared for a much different driving experience.

    While Rally-X Rumble won't likely convert anyone who isn't a fan of the game, those looking for a version of the game on iOS at last will enjoy this.

    Dungeons & Dragons: Arena of War puts players in a small area full of explosives where they'll battle it out against different types of monsters and bosses. Well, if they have enough energy.

    Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar is a fun online hack 'n slash that unfortunately lets its monetization play too big of a role in the game.

    Part of a genre where every strategic battle title begins to look familiar, Heroes of Dragon Age separates itself with highly detailed artwork and gameplay to match. However, initial long load times and semi-auto gameplay might put some off.

    It's a stunning game to look at but even for a JRPG nut such as myself, it lacks any real passion.

    Just when you think the NBA 2K series can't get any worse on iOS, they go and totally outdo themselves... and not in a good way either.

    Adding NBA players to a fairly unremarkable Endless Runner proves to be quite unexciting.

    Simple to play, Yet Another Zombie Defense is a dual stick shooter with slight elements of tower defense but not quite enough.

    Daytona Rush is an incredibly shallow endless racer, but it's fun in a forgettable kind of way.

    Though Gameloft have taken a lot of what was wrong with the first game and improved on it, it still struggles to recreate the excitement of the action-packed opening. Nevertheless, fans of the first game will feel right at home with the sequel and will still have tons of web-slinging fun.

    To sum it up, if you love, and by love I mean LOVE RPG's, you'll probably find yourself wrapped up in the world of Seed 2.

    Gameloft has another crack at turning the Iron Man franchise into a fantastic game. This time round, it's an Endless Runner/Flyer.

    Taking a step back and looking from a place of objectivity, it is genuinely hard to recommend picking up NFL Quarterback 13. Last year's game now costs a dollar less and features nearly an identical on-the-field experience, not to mention a more streamlined user interface. Though there was no real reason to re-invent the wheel this season, trying to send the same tire through the car wash a couple of times and sell it as new feels like an insult to the fans.

    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.

    A mixed bag, After Earth has some nice ideas but it falls into typical Endless Running repetition a little too easily.

    Call of Mini Zombies 2 scratches that primal gamer itch for shooting wildly at things that move, but don't expect much depth.

    Plants War's core experience is fun enough to warrant several play sessions. It takes a while for things to stop feeling quite so "samey" due to unlocks being so tough to acquire, but it's always satisfying to earn that new unit and take it out for a spin.

    Demonrock: War of Ages mashes together multiple RPG and strategy genres for its gameplay, but it just doesn't quite come together.

    If you've played Guerilla Bob and Minigore and are desperate for another dual stick shooter to sooth your nervous twitch, go ahead and pick this one up. It certainly won't disappoint, but it also won't wow you.

    Here's hoping Pac-Man's 40th birthday is more satisfying, and that he doesn't end up growing a ponytail and buying a red sports car to overcompensate. That would just be sad.

    Featuring a tedious storyline that is hard to invest yourself into, a deluge of the same enemies over and over again, plus a little visual tarnish to boot, Third Blade is a game that doesn't live up to its own high aspirations.

    Half-Inch Heist can be nerve-wracking in a good way, the chiptune music is intense and a great fit, and I enjoy the pixel art style. With some tweaks to be more user-friendly, I think this could be a challenging-yet-fun game, instead of merely challenging my patience.

    There’s nothing inherently bad or boring about any type of game. However, some games, like Dragon Storm, just need a little more effort to be made interesting.

    WrestleFest's randomness is what sinks this game; rules that are difficult to comprehend or discover how they work are not what modern games should have. Still, for those nostalgic for the old arcade-style wrestling games, this is a good fix. Beyond that? Might be best to stay away.

    The graphics and sound fit nicely into the world of Middle Earth. The music is soft and unobtrusive but adds a soothing element to the gameplay. I did notice some lag when scrolling in some portions of the game and it can sometimes take a while to load, but other than that I'd say it performs well.

    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.

    It's not that Fast & Furious 6 isn't a fun drag racer, it's just that its slow recharging mechanic puts one off getting drawn in.

    There's no story, and the duels are rather simple; even so, that simplicity makes it an easy way to get a few minutes' entertainment. As a Witcher fan, I would have liked a more significant tie-in with the game world, but even so The Witcher: Versus is, if not a must-have, certainly a fun way to spend some time.

    Hail to the King: Deathbat may feel like "Coming Home" for Avenged Sevenfold's faithful, but most will find this mediocre hack-and-slash to be "An Epic of Time Wasted."

    Breakout Boost doesn't have a lot going on for free, but its very fair and affordable IAP practices are appealing in a world where even someone like myself, who understands the move to consumable IAP, feels kind of annoyed by the shoehorning of it in games where it otherwise doesn't belong. Breakout and Arkanoid fans should give this one a test.

    I understand the desire to make games that try to emulate console-style gameplay on iOS, but they usually wind up falling flat because they're not particularly a good fit for the platform. It's just that M.U.S.E. feels flat even for iOS, like if there's a really good game here, it's still ways off from being fully realized. There are other, better, 3rd party shooters to check out before this one.
