    Auditorium is unusual, soothing, inventive, and extraordinarily pretty. If you're looking for a sleek puzzle game, put this one on your list for sure.

    FastBall 2 dispenses with the parts of platforming games that are usually frivolous filler (the story), focusing instead on the action within.

    It is a safe bet that proponents of the first episode will likely enjoy Episode Two, and if Telltale's track record in the adventure game genre is any indication, the whole Back to the Future game series is likely going to reach classic status down the road.

    My only complaint would be that load times can seem a little long for when I'm trying to get a quick game in during a commercial break on television or something, but it's certainly worth waiting for - it's also totally understandable when considering the detail in the levels that's been squeezed onto our little devices.

    Despite a rough edge here and there (so to speak), Release is a unique, challenging, and addictive shooting game.

    BlibBlob is a childlike game that is complex enough for adults to enjoy. The controls are easy to pick up, the storyline is cute, and while the repaly value is not the best – unless the player is on OpenFeint – who cares when there are stars to gather, secret passageways to discover and fruity bonus points to eat.

    A pleasant auto flyer with a cute and entertaining storyline and structure.

    It's a little dark, in every sense of the word, but The Journey Down: Chapter Two is a solidly entertaining adventure game.

    Based on its interesting game mechanics, twist on the generations old house fly and challenging race to the finish, Fly Run is a solid flying adventure.

    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.

    It's tough to resist the charm of Banana Kong and while it's never going to be as exceptional as the Donkey Kong Country series, it's a warm, Endless Runner focused alternative.

    Perloo commands both time and a certain level of intrinsic logic. Provided one has both, it is highly rewarding. However, be prepared to cry at the hard bits.

    Overall, Seed Studio is off to a nice start with Pirate's Battle. I would love to see more playable ships and some extra game modes or minigames, but the package as a whole is still a great offering if you love playing same system multiplayer.

    There are better twin stick shooters on iOS, no doubt of that, but few of them feel as unique as Dead End does. If it had gone with more traditional controls it would probably still be a fun enough game, but because it's brave enough to try something different, Dead End has a curious hook to it.

    A complex sim and one that demonstrates just how wondrous it was the first time.

    Dive deep in this fun explore-em-up that's a little grind heavy but ultimately quite entertaining.

    It's pretty tough for those not used to such past mechanics. Timing and speed is everything, much like the Track and Field games of old, but it's not a format that everyone will adore.

    WordTag offers something not only novel, but thought provoking. If the developers continue to nourish it, I can see it living on my iPhone for a long time.

    Wicked Lair is a compelling mix of tower defense and tower building. It feels good to be not nice.

    The Land of Venn - Geometric Defense is a wonderful, kinetic app that teaches early geometry to children with an interesting use of color and style.

    These are the kinds of titles that can set the platform apart as one of the truly unique experiences in gaming. It is definitely well worth a look, especially when you consider that the base game is actually free.

    Powerslide Penguin does just what players would expect of Chillingo. It's simple but addictive and cute. For the asking price of 99c, it's an ideal game for those looking for a new hook during their daily commute.

    You won't get much satisfaction out of Harry Potter: Spells unless you're a strong Harry Potter fan, and you need a friend who's also willing to get the app in order to really enjoy it. Even then, the fun doesn't last forever; this app is a one-trick pony.

    MotoTrialz isn't the best game ever, and the controls and features need some work, but it's a solid little game – and you could sure do worse for $0.99.

    Destructopus is a fun game. The amount of levels means there are a good few hours to play through here and most importantly, it's enjoyable.

    Office Gamebox offers a very simple experience but it's still fantastic fun. The presentation is spot on with simple instructions guiding you through each game and a high score encompassing all the titles in one, as well as individual ones.

    VS. Racing is not an impressively realistic iOS racing game, but it is a fun racer, nonetheless. It's got a unique, functional control scheme – one that actually lends itself to creating a stand-out experience – and it visuals serve as nice eye candy. Not bad.
