    SteamBirds, from the makers of Canabalt, is fun for a time, but doesn't do enough to earn a spot with the App Store elite.

    Quite fun at times, but its controls can make the game more frustrating than it ought to be. Still, if you love retro-inspired games, and especially the Llamatron and Robotron games, or just want something a little different from the typical arena shooter, Minotron: 2112 is a solid purchase – and at worst, it's interesting reading material.

    A simple idea but it's compelling fun. Rushing up through the elevator shaft brings with it just the right level of tension without being infuriating.

    It is an addictive, casual experience that lends itself to short bursts of portable gaming bliss.

    While slinging Blobster around the game's levels, watching him bounce all over the place, it really feels like one's playing with a toy, rather than simply controlling another video game character. This is what makes Blobster a unique, stand-out platformer.

    I was, and still am, genuinely surprised and impressed with Emissary of War. It's fun, funny and genuinely different in a genre over-saturated with Blizzard wannabes.

    Dragon Fantasy's homage to old-school RPGs is both its greatest strength and weakness; it's at times a fun neo-classical romp, but then the worst classical elements rear their head and it's just a reminder that sometimes there's a reason why games evolve.

    Fling a Thing manages to combine flinging physics, arcade tomfoolery and just a hint of virtual pet with surprising success.

    While incredibly similar to a favorite of mine, Tentacle Wars HD simply wasn't quite as fun. I enjoyed the first set of levels, but, after a while, I just got bored.

    While I actually prefer Bird Zapper's gameplay, Bug Assault has a fair bit to recommend it especially the unusual control mechanic. It's a solid pick, particularly for households with young gamers.

    Fish Heroes won't win prizes for originality but it maintains a fun edge and it's consistently satisfying clearing a level with few fish. It's a great one to drop in on regularly to chip away at those 3 star scores.

    Cthulhu Saves The World is a must-play for any RPG fans and fans of 16-bit games, who will get a kick out of its crazy story, humorous writing, loving parody of the genre, and even its challenge.

    Jurassic Park Builder may not be a super deep simulation with tons of factors to micromanage, but it is a well-made freemium simulation that's far less restrictive than many of its peers. Plus it's dinosaurs. Dinosaurs, people.

    It might feel like something of a waste for a little while, but stick with it. Once that slow start is finished it gets a lot more fun.

    Topia World Builder is a game for those that want to play with a world of their own, that find joy in the process of creation rather than the structure or the output of the activity.

    Simple to look at and play, Dots is a rather fun game about connecting as many dots as possible within a short period of time.

    Much like the book it’s based on, Zombocalypse Now is most ideal for young adults but it’ll appeal to any zombie loving adult, really.

    Not quite as gripping as one would hope, given its handful of issues, The Voyage still remains mostly fun for those looking for a Layton style fix.

    How does 60 more missions of Rubicon's turn-based strategy formula sound? Good? Then check this game out.

    Fighting Fantasy: Caverns of the Snow Witch is a sterling release from Tin Man Games, as per usual.

    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.
