    Although it's no SSX, Snowboard Heroes is still a solid iOS game and has enough to it to keep you busy for a lengthy period of time. Any snowboarding fan will especially enjoy being able to play something of this quality on the go.

    It's a great package for card game fans and Assassin's Creed fans alike. The story mode within Assassin's Creed Recollection promises 8-10 hours of fun and the online multiplayer will no doubt extend that. Throw in the time it'll take to collect all 280 cards/memories and there's a lot of gameplay to be had for fans of the franchise.

    In the end, FIFA 11 will probably hold your attention longer than most other iOS sports sims, but it won't keep you playing season after season. The game itself, for what it is, isn't bad but the virtual joystick does become grating after long plays.

    A great game and it shines in so many ways. Players will have a great time with this title and they have plenty of levels to play for free while they evaluate whether or not they'd like to purchase additional levels.

    It’s not exactly the ultimate all-star gathering we might’ve hoped for, but Final Fantasy Record Keeper is a decent nostalgia trip.

    Catapult King does a fine job at bringing the popular physics puzzler genre to 3D, and even if it doesn't really do much more to move the genre in a new direction it's a fun game to play.

    Dungeon Crawlers delivers a solid dungeon crawling experience and its turn based combat works really well even if it's hard to control at times. The game looks great and the characters are humorous at times, but it is visually marred by its uninspired interface design. This game also delivers a good amount of original content for the price with more on the way.

    The opposition within VS. Racing 2 is just right, with the AI proving to never be too easy or too hard. It's just the right level of challenge.

    Disco Kitten is unique to say the least. The eclectic mix of gameplay, mechanics, visuals and music makes for a game that doesn't easily fit into many genres. This one-of-a-kind game is lots of fun and very challenging as well.

    A steady trickle of different star types keep this game away from being too predictable but its familiar mechanics confirm its place as an easy to dive into title.

    While the freemium elements providing a glorified paywall after a short amount of time is a little on the annoying side, this is a good stopgap for people who are tired of slaying the God King, and need something to do while they wait for Infinity Blade 2.

    Colossatron comes ready to destroy everything, but it is just a bit too chaotic, and players are given too little control.

    A handful of tiny adjustments have made their way in, but it's ultimately still the same game we all remember fondly.

    The boost mechanic is what makes Rock Runners feel truly special. Performing a perfect run on a level, all while boosting, feels so smooth and rewarding that you just want to do it again on the next stage. Although there are some issues with in-game hitching (that, and the pause menu could use a count-down timer on resume), there is very little negative to say about Rock Runners.

    The game's downfall is that it seemingly models itself after "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" and it is most certainly not, but it gets close enough to keep a simpleton such as myself entertained. "Skater Nation" isn't the best game in the App Store, but it is the best skating game in the app store.

    Compelling stuff. It's challenging after a while and will occasionally make the player want to tear their hair out as on the 50th attempt, they struggle to get past that pesky last corner.

    Dream Track Nation is fun and frustrating; I have often rage-quit while playing it, but it made future success so much more sweet. This is a very feature-packed game for $0.99.

    While the omnipresent theme song may get a bit grating and it sadly lacks the multiplayer modes of the original Xbox version, Rocket Riot still serves up plenty of good, mindless, destructive fun and bizarre quirky charm. Warm up those jet-butts and check it out.

    PvNvZvP is a bit of a polarizing game because even though it can be rather entertaining, it's also basically plagiarizing a more popular game.

    Blosics is yet another of those great "just one more level" games; the kind that incite the sort of conditioning that leaves us hopelessly tapping at the screen like lab rats pushing buttons for a food reward.

    It's incredibly difficult not to have a good time with Bunny Cannon. It's a familiar concept, sure, but it freshens it up quite a bit with some new ideas and mechanics. More importantly, no matter how anyone sees it it's simply loads of fun to play.

    Yet another excellent addition to Kairosoft's release library. It's familiar, but just different enough to feel unique among the rest. There's no reason why fans shouldn't snap this one up immediately, assuming they haven't already.

    While those who fell squarely on the side of Vlambeer in the Ninja Fishing/Radical Fishing debacle will likely be disgusted by Muffin Knight, there's still an original art theme, engrossing RPG elements, and the fun multiplayer as well.

    For the most part, the level design is quite quirky and amusing, however. The difficulty is a rather steep curve later on, but it ramps up to it quite nicely to start. Overall, a positive experience, if perhaps one I felt I've had before in many other occasions.

    Carmageddon is an older game, and it shows even on a mobile device, but people don't always love old games purely because they're old. Sometimes they love them because they're fun. And despite the slippery controls, this bit of nostalgia is still very, very fun.

    Motley Blocks doesn't quite offer that "just one more go" factor, as it's tricky stuff at times, but it is an interesting take on a tried and tested formula. Albeit, available at a rather pricey $2.99.

    I’m getting to the point where I think the casual puzzle game genre is getting a little saturated. It seems a new game comes out every week that attempts to become the next Angry Birds. That being said, I don’t think that Be Together will dethrone the top games out there but I do think that it is a worthy addition to the genre. It has some lovable characters and visually-appealing artwork that makes for a friendly game environment for players of all ages.

    LostWinds is a very worthy purchase. It was relatively expensive for its length on the Wii but on the App Store, it fits in nicely. There may be limited replayability once completed, except for those desperate to collect all the Melodia Idols around the game, however the general ambience is warm and enjoyable. It's backed up by some neat wind based mechanics. LostWinds is a fine way to spend some time.

    The game is just plain satisfying to play and the ever-present draw of earning better gear is a great motivator. I'm not too keen on the way the increasing difficulty can back players into a corner if they're saving for a particular gun (and completed stages can't be replayed), and money takes a long time to earn, but that's just how it is. I mean it's a game about shooting zombies. What else does anyone need to know, really?
