    Yet It Moves is the iOS release of And Yet It Moves, a great indie puzzle platformer. It suffers from some occasionally annoying controls.

    Fearless Fantasy is a weird and wild RPG, but it’s a great fit for mobile.

    Golf Zero is an amazing game that can be aggravating, but in two entirely different ways. If you pay for the game, you'll be grinning ear-to-ear as you restart levels over and over again, shooting for one more hole. If you don't, you'll be treated to a bunch of video ads that will take you out of the action and likely make you delete the app. Do yourself a favor and pay for Golf Zero. For two bucks, you'll be buying yourself one of the best platformers on iOS.

    The Adventures of Tintin – The Game is an extremely enjoyable game that manages to combine multiple genres, yet never feels messy. It's just a shame about the number of game crashes.

    VainGlory is a really fun and accessible MOBA, but suffers from some slightly sexist elements.

    Just an absolute joy. With mechanics that are nearly perfect, and a style that is difficult to out-do, this is a game that must be checked out by anyone who likes endless runner games, or anyone who just likes to feel happy while they play. This game is just fun.

    Fans of the Cut the Rope experience will certainly not be let down by the most recent time traveling outing. This is very much one of the cases where, “more of the same,” is perfectly acceptable. Don’t even think twice about ponying up for this sweet treat.

    As a Zelda fan myself; it was hard to go through Sacred Odyssey at times knowing that if Zelda were on the iPhone it would be a richer experience. I don't want to take too much away from Gameloft, as they did a fine job, but Sacred Odyssey doesn't do enough to make me not long for some kind of Apple/Nintendo partnership.

    Not all games age elegantly. Though while Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is certainly showing its age, everything that made it great still shows through brilliantly.

    Shining Force is an underappreciated classic, and while its age sometimes shows, it is a good port by Sega to iOS, and a great representation of a strategy RPG worth checking out to this day, at a fair price.

    The only real issue I have with TwinGo! is that the entire first world is just far too easy.

    There’s plenty of reason to return to Toy Story: Smash It! regularly and while it’s perhaps not the hardest of titles out there, it’s a heck of a lot of fun.

    For being a sequel, Zenonia 2 doesn't bring a ton of new stuff to the table. Still, that's OK…because it just builds on something that was great to begin with and adds tons to it.

    Zen Studios has shown that they truly are the future of the Jedi Knights, as long as players prefer flippers to lightsabers. Don’t think twice about pulling the trigger on this purchase.

    From the difficulty to the combat, to even just the way the game feels like it was yanked straight out of a SNES, there is a lot to love here.

    Yet another excellent entry from Shenandoah Studio, Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein may be priced a bit steep, but it’s a well-executed package that functions as both entertainment and interactive history lesson.

    Suffice it to say, Cave has done it yet again. Bug Princess is another great shooter to add to the ol' iOS library. It's significantly cheaper than its brethren, too, so it's also bound to appeal to frugal entomophobics everywhere.

    With a funny storyline, 142 rounds of 3D action set across 34 locations, bonus levels, power ups and varied gameplay controls, Banzai Rabbit is fun, challenging and nostalgically appealing. If you do one thing for Johnny, man, get this game.

    Even if you're jaded on match-3 games, Linkoidz is worth playing.

    If you like movies, this really is an unmissable purchase. I haven't had this much fun with a trivia game for a long time. The cutesy cats only help matters.

    For a newcomer to tower defense games, Gem Keepers is the perfect place to start. For those who already love the genre, Gem Keepers is a no-brainer. Get it.

    Football Manager Handheld 2012 isn't quite a revolution in soccer management but the addition of Challenge mode does go some way to encouraging that idea. It'd be nice to see some more hands on controls mid match in a future edition.

    The crazy thing is that this game is really an absurd value.

    Do some puzzles to make some platforms in this smart and fun free-to-play cave mining adventure.

    This card game looks and feels like a combination of Diablo and Solitaire, but which does it play more like?

    I loved my first playthrough of Firetop Mountain, even though I died. On the second playthrough, I was laser focused on beating it and did so while skipping over a lot of the text I read the first time. After that, I didn't really want to go back to the game. For a roguelike, this would be a terrible thing, but for a game book, I suppose that's not too shabby. Despite some of its issues, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is certainly a complete and compelling package, though maybe not one you'll want to revisit.

    For gamers seeking intense action and fantastic graphics, Trigger Fist should not be missed. It's hard to believe that this kind of experience can be had on a phone, but the evidence speaks for itself.

    Activision's efforts in creating a faithful port of a hit console game a decade old was successful and should be applauded. The virtual control scheme, while not perfect, works; it just may take some players a little time to adjust to it before they're comfortable with the controls.

    Gary Games and Incinerator Studios have done a great job of both creating a fantastic card game, and porting it to iOS.
