    A great concept and a great twist on the bullet hell formula. At its low price, it really is worth a shot and you'll no doubt find yourself impressed by the graphical style.

    It's going to sell to fans of the original, but if it comes down to what is the best Rube Goldberg puzzler on the App Store, this comes in a distant second.

    This is still a classic and still a fantastic game that needs to be played by any and all RPG lovers. The controls can be very, very irritating at times but the core experience, characters and storyline have weathered the storm of porting and still provide as much enjoyment as they ever had. I'm still kind of cheesed-off by the butchering of Frog's script, though.

    Zombies, Run! effortlessly blends fitness and fun. Runners will enjoy the top notch story and its professional quality audio production. The progression of the story and the incentives and rewards received for running will also give runners that extra boost they might need to go just a little farther or just a little faster.

    As far as line drawing games go, Twang The Fox is like a breath of fresh air for a genre that seems to have been on its last leg for quite some time.

    A challenging combination of billiards and mini-golf, Super Paper Pool is rather fun for the skilful gamer.

    Ever wanted to run a call center? Probably not, but Smooth Operators! makes the experience a lot more interesting than the real thing!

    Build a base and explore the high seas in Rovio Stars' Plunder Pirates.

    Looked at on its own (which I'm not sure it deserves) it's an enjoyable enough romp with plenty of replay value. And it's free, and it doesn't really push purchases on me, so that's all to be appreciated. Still, it would be nice to see these values applied to new ideas on iOS a bit more, right? Ah who are we kidding.

    While able to be called "sufficient," considering there are no other licensed basketball titles in the App Store, NBA Elite 11 falls far short of what should be expected for an iOS sports game.

    Circadia is a fun puzzle game that forgoes flashy graphics for clean visuals and a simple objective.

    Dungeon Gems adds its own spin to the Puzzle & Dragons formula, but it's not quite enough to make it stand above the competition.

    For $2.99 with the promise of more free levels to come, Brainssss is a great value. Any fan of RTS or zombies should grab this one.

    Although a decent sized RPG, Across Age 2 is too derivative of its predecessor to offer anything new and different here.

    In my opinion, it's a bit of a mess, lacking any real tie in to the movie, or reality. It does have a great 80's inspired sound track, though, and that just about covers the price of admission for me.

    This one has enough potential to be as huge as its older siblings: Angry Birds and Cut the Rope.

    Not a bad game. It's just kind of bland. Fans of Centipede might enjoy an iPad-friendly version of the game, and it does have gnomes in it. Everything is better with gnomes. It just doesn't take a lot of risks, doesn't do anything particularly unexpected.

    The Turtles finally come to iOS in the form of a lacklustre Endless Runner that demands a lot of grinding or in-app purchases.

    F1 Challenge brings over 90 challenges of Formula 1 excitement, offering quick gameplay modes for all racing fans to enjoy while on the go.

    A Facebook favorite comes to iOS, but on this format, it's not the King of the Card Game pack, just yet.

    Sky Gnomes is an interesting short-term play experience, but those that try it out should be warned: the temptation to spend money on IAP will hit. Progress just feels too slow otherwise.

    The player has so much more control in Super Crate Box than they do in Flip's Escape, and that's why I think that game works better with the same concept.

    Star Trek Rivals is a card game many have seen before, but it's still a heck of a lot of fun regardless.

    Craft a world and save some innocent people in this varied and highly enjoyable freemium world building game.

    If you are looking for a competent clone of current JRPGs on console, then you have come to the right place. Just don't expect it to push the envelope any further than is ultimately necessary. Sadly, the curse of developers choosing to "play it safe" may have just claimed another victim.

    A solid freemium game. It has simple controls, a cool, retro, aesthetic, and is easy to pick up and play. The in-game purchases aren't necessary and the ads aren't intrusive, so be sure to give it a try.

    Temple Run: Oz is a movie tie-in version of Temple Run 2 that comes too close and adds too little in the way of good new elements to justify its existence.

    A puzzler unlike others, Lost Toys is a gorgeous, other-worldly experience that evokes deep and utter absorption.

    This naval strategy game's nuances are borderline inaccessible but with enough patience it can be fun. Sort of.

    The game definitely works as something that requires some thought, but nothing too strenuous.
