    Shaking the iPhone around to move the red balls around quickly, while trying to pin down ticking time bombs at the same time takes a good amount of concentration. It also looks pretty silly. This probably isn't a game many gamers will want to play while waiting in line or on the train. That said, it's a lot of fun and the various game modes make the simple game much more interesting in the long run.

    Even setting the control issues aside, I think this game is more one for the genre fans than anyone else, but there's certainly nothing wrong with that.

    Tiny Aliens is a fun and easy to play physics based puzzle game. It creates a very fun atmosphere with its graphics and sounds, and offers a few interesting mechanics and obstacles. The 70 levels are definitely worth the $0.99 price tag.

    RobotRiot's a bit refreshing when many other platformers are going to the hyper-short route, and the level design that extends out vertically as well as horizontally is well-done as well. It feels a bit stiff at times, but is a solid experience overall.

    Apart from some dodgy found control methods I think could do with some slight refining, Ridge Racer Accelerated is the Ridge Racer we all know, now on iPhone and iPod touch. A must for original fans of the franchise, and with future updates to the title slated to be bringing up to 40+ more courses and 60+ more machines free of charge, Ridge Racer Accelerated could be set to make its own mark on the App Store crowd.

    A fun physics based game with a quick learning curve, interesting scenes, good music and sound effects, and can potentially have a massive amount of levels once all the themes are created and if the gamer is willing to pay for them.

    I highly recommend Miner 2049er as both a nostalgic experience and as a just plain fun iOS game. The free content runs out pretty fast (only 4 levels are available), but it's fun while it lasts.

    I undoubtedly had fun playing Slice the Ice, but the whole ordeal was over much sooner than I would've liked and an extremely large portion of the content is closed off. Although replaying each of the initial 20 levels for a "Perfect" is certainly still an option so long as one can get past the jerkiness.

    Gamers who are fans of the show and have some patience won't mind waiting or spending a little cash, especially since it's possible to play with other preppers. Others may find the game to be a little mundane and repetitive.

    When it works, Angry Bomber is a solid game with an addictive idea behind it. It has a generous amount of levels too, with 30 on offer. It's just a shame that the action is marred by control issues.

    There's a lot of ambition, but it is hampered by poor execution. littleDragon 3D would benefit from improvements across the spectrum, yet there is still a charm that manages to seep through that stops players from outright despising the game and, in fact, finding a bit of fun in there.

    AstroWings2 definitely gets the basics right, but small details like an odd in-app purchase model and camouflaged projectiles it stumbles right out of the gate. Nothing a little TLC can't fix, but it's tough to recommend in its current state. It does show promise, though.

    The edgy comic book intros and menu art make this game feel a lot like an exploitation film from the 70′s. That makes it very difficult to recommend the title for children, but more mature gamers will certainly have good fun with this game.

    It's uncommon for an app that only costs $0.99 to be worth more than that in content, but Crates Night Shift HD manages it. Of course, I'm not claiming that other games haven't done it. But it's refreshing when I come across one.

    DC Legends doesn't to a whole lot different from games like Mafia III: Rivals, but the fact that it deals in comic book characters makes it better suited for this type of game.
