    It doesn't matter if a painting is beautiful. If it's only half of the picture, it's impossible to predict the quality of the end product. The same also applies here.

    Puzzle Dungeons manages to balance fun, challenge, and progress quite successfully. Each of the three playable characters offers up a unique set of abilities (and by extension, strategies), and there's never any real punishment for failure.

    Exceptionally good fun. It's an enjoyable re-imagining of a tried and tested formula and one that easily offers that 'one more go' factor.

    Thanks to microtransactions that hog the spotlight, Dropple may very well be one of the most generous free offerings released in this New Year. When the barrier to entry is this low, there is no excuse not to put the game through its paces.

    It turns out that sometimes the simplest of ideas really are the most fun. I was impressed to see just how fast time went once I got into Tasty Planet and found myself working my way through each level. My only complaint is that it might be a little too easy as there's a definite lack of peril here, bar larger things being able to reduce your size.

    Tumbledrop just oozes cuteness. Thankfully, there's a substantial, challenging physics puzzle underneath that sugar-sweet skin.

    Standing in the path of a rampaging dragon is never fun. Being a rampaging dragon, on the other hand, is quite entertaining.

    Minerollr puts a new spin - and a new layer of difficulty - on the classic Minesweeper formula. Hardcore fans rejoice.

    The 68 levels in all provide great value.

    The difficulty level is a little inconsistent with some puzzles proving much harder than others despite being earlier in the game. Other than that, however, The Hacker is a great idea that stands out from the crowd. Mini games alone might have made for a mediocre title but with the backing of an original interface and storyline, The Hacker is well worth a look at a bargain price.

    Baseball Superstars 2011 is still far from being a perfect game, and the changes in this year's version are really only minor tweaks to the overall formula. But the minor tweaks add up to make this a better game, in some ways, even if the pitching is still far from perfect.

    I did enjoy my time with Avengers Alliance, but it required a bit more patience than most freemium titles I’m used to because of all the down time. However, it’s still an entertaining game about recruiting a bunch of superheroes and fighting lots of supervillains, and who doesn’t enjoy stuff like that?

    Bungle! is a simple, silly reflex game that's lots more fun than working a cruddy summer job.

    I've just been having an absolute blast with Zombies and I can't wait to jump back in for more. An update with some slightly more forgiving hit boxes for the control sticks would certainly be nice, but it's nowhere near a necessity. Grab it. Play it. Love it.

    Hero Bears is not only an adorable endless runner, but half of all profits benefit the UK-based Help for Heroes charity.

    Through Mr Fiddle tends to amble at a snail's pace, his adventure still offers fun and intrigue.

    Even with the annoyances, Nose Invaders still manages to be quite a bit of fun. So long as breaks are taken from the occasional irritation.

    An extremely well put together, although short experience. The controls are on the cusp of being perfect for the genre, the graphics and sound are top notch, and the online gameplay is definitely a glimpse into what iPhone FPS multiplayer will be like.

    Fans of puzzle games will definitely get a kick out of Portaball, but its unforgiving nature and lack of any real graphics or sound will turn away some. If you can get past the utilitarian design, Portaball really is a good game.

    Excluding the weak mini games, Tapper World Tour is pretty good fun. It's not long before it's quite tough, but it is fairly addictive.

    Cally's Caves 2 is a very decent mobile action game, though the lack of recovery time after getting hit makes it unnecessarily difficult in spots.

    Riptide GP 2 improves on the fast-paced hydro jet racing action of its predecessor, adding new tracks, vehicles, and tricks for players to splash around with.

    Guide trucks along their delivery routes in RGB Express, a testing but charming puzzle game.

    The love put into every sprite and asset oozes from the screen, and also, there's pudding with a monocle.

    This isn't a title for adrenaline junkies, but Underground Kingdom is ideal for adventure fans. I'm hopeful to see future titles from Choose Your Own Adventure covered on the App Store.

    I found Survivor Z an ideal game to drop into on a daily basis, hopeful that I’d continue to survive, especially when travelling further afield. Fans should greatly enjoy the change of focus, much as I did.

    Vector is an arcade-style free running game based on the art of Parkour. Using just one finger players can run, jump, and perform a variety of cool moves.

    Even though I worry about Train Crisis HD+'s longevity, what's already there is certainly worth it. I can't get over just how much more interesting everything became once a few of those new elements were introduced. And to think, there's potentially at least twice as much game looming on the horizon!

    For a free game, Freekick Battle's core gameplay is compelling enough that those who don't choose to indulge in the shop shouldn't feel too cheated. Conversely, while its extra content is weird and superfluous, it's still a nice option to have. Freekick Battle is great for anyone looking for an on-the-go soccer fix.
