    868-HACK is a very challenging yet thoughtfully-designed roguelike from Michael Brough.

    Mikey Jumps is a cool little game, but it probably won't blow you away. It offers up some fun micro-platforming that's fast and challenging, but nothing more than that.

    The Silent Age is an absolutely fantastic adventure that fans of the genre should not miss.

    Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror is a fantastic game. The story feels as fresh and as entertaining as it did back in the day, and the slightly improved graphics are much appreciated. Many hours of entertaining storytelling lie ahead.

    Help! Repaint missing works of art such as “Surfing Elephants,” “Deer Taking the Alligator Ferry,” and “On the Day of the Apocalypse, Treat Yourself to a Popsicle.” This whimsical puzzler is a gem for all ages.

    I don't like to fight my games – this isn't to say that I don't like challenge entirely, but that I like the challenge to come from the content of a game, not the interface.

    One Tap Hero is an intelligent game that does what it claims, blending the genre of platform and puzzler well. Once the player gets past slight control issues there is definitely a great game to be had.

    A mixture of imaginative design and traditional twin-stick shooting, Second Chance Heroes is an enjoyable romp indeed.

    Great voice-acting, interesting gameplay, and top-notch animations set Detective Grimoire apart from the masses in a fantastic crime-solving adventure.

    By combining math and more traditional collectible card game mechanics, Calculords has stumbled upon a winning formula.

    Hot Springs Story isn't quite as gripping as Game Dev Story. Its subject matter being not quite as clearly enjoyable as the earlier game, plus it's really quite a serious sim, with no sign of the humor of Game Dev Story. However, in turn it's a deeper experience with more to it. This ensures that Hot Springs Story is still a great game to play, just not quite as wondrous as its predecessor.

    Lara Croft GO embraces what worked so well for Hitman GO and adds everyone's favorite Tomb Raider.

    A clever, beautiful, vibrant game that will tickle your visual-auditory fancy. Its sublime levels, decorated with rich, textured art and graphics and polished, engrossing game play will entice you into playing over and again.

    The (in my opinion) over-priced card packs available through in-app purchases feel like a slap in the face, especially after already paying $5 for the game proper, but what can be bought can also be earned. And earning it, battle to battle, victory to victory, is what will keep me playing for a very long time.

    The gameplay is not only intuitive and challenging but it's also engaging. The graphics are crisp, the animations are beautifully done and I can't stop humming that catchy tune in the game. Go grab a copy of Bucketz to test your reflexes and see if you can become a master of balance. I can't think of a better way to spend two dollars.

    Electric Tentacle might not have that ridiculously addictive quality that something like Tiny Wings might still retain, it needs a few more persistent challenges to accomplish that, but what is there adds something original to the genre. Something that we could all do with occasionally.

    With the number of tracks and the challenge of getting a gold mark on each one, it's going to take players a while to get through this game. Skyriders is definitely a fun diversion with plenty of action!

    Even floaty physics and control issues can’t derail this absolutely stunning interactive history of typography/platformer.

    The Wolf Among Us lures players into a fairytale-based murder mystery that has them hooked throughout the entire first episode of a five episode series.

    Lost Yeti uses a Nintendo-styled aesthetic to be one of the most accurate retro games on iOS.

    Exceptionally tough at times, Mr. Particle-Man is also very satisfying to play.

    This arcade game feels like a silly mash up of Lunar Lander and Jetpack Joyride, which is mostly a good thing.

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

    Galaxy on Fire 2: HD really takes full advantage of the A5 chip and the retina display of the iPhone 4S. The graphics are clean and crisp which make for some excellent dog fights with pirates and aliens.

    While Total War Battles: Shogun incorporates slightly simplified versions of tried and true strategy game mechanics, it blends them together incredibly well.

    It's increasingly possible to get a big console-style game on mobile, but the inherent drawback of touchscreen controls and the lack of tactility are really the only aspects that hold N.O.V.A. 3 back. Those who are prepared to look past them are the ones that will have a great time with this.
