    Glo Flo is extremely simple in its execution as well as its appearance but underneath that simplicity is, well, more simplicity.

    Implode 3D is only really let down by its inability to change. It is roughly the same game throughout the entire 80 levels.

    The levels that are included do offer up enough of a challenge to provide a good chunk of gameplay – it's certainly not the case that they'll be blitzed through in one sitting. Which leaves us with a title that, while not perfect, is certainly worth a little look. Let's just hope the new levels aren't too far away from appearing.

    Offering a fairly entertaining adaptation of the popular game of Skee Ball, it's a shame this game's quite cluttered with money making opportunities.

    It won't convert naysayers across as there's no more to it than simply matching the relevant icons, but it makes for an entertaining enough way of passing a few hours.

    Ultimately, while this game might not do anything revolutionary for the twin-stick shooter genre it's an enjoyable way to spend some time wading through some undead carnage.

    The trance music and neon graphics are serviceable but what really matters are the mechanics which are neither amazing nor awful. Apart from it's 3D twist, HypnoBlocks is as straightforward as puzzle games get.

    Thankfully, having long ago lost my need for perfection, I was able to continue ever onward and enjoy the zany story for what it was, moving from colons to brains and many organs between. There is quite a bit to enjoy about Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin, and it has high production values. Just be prepared for some level of frustration.

    While I think the concept is not as perfectly-executed as I think it could be, Blast Soccer is definitely an interesting take on its sub-genre: and hey, a game that's interesting but far from perfect is better than a game that's mechanically sound but uninteresting.

    There will be players who enjoy its simple, mostly-mindless fun, and good for them. But there's not a lot of depth here, and the game doesn't try very hard to find it.

    This is definitely the game for hard-core and devoted Wheel of Fortune fans. It has a lot of extra features that will probably be more than the average person would want, like themes for different eras of the show. However, the pass and play option is a really nice touch and Wheel of Fortune is the perfect game for playing with friends on a single device.

    Worm Run is fun, but it sadly is not perfect. Still, for those looking for something that’s a bit different, this is worth checking out.

    Finger Physics: Thumb Wars does a good job at differentiating itself and adding the novel country competition mechanic, but the monotonous gameplay and frustrating menu layouts drag the game down.

    While it's a bit of a jack of all trade and master of none, it's still well worth a look. The potential is great and hopefully Square Enix will soon be adding to the collection with new instalments. Oh and Final Fantasy fans will love the ending.

    Current is certainly a great looking game, and the fast-paced gameplay is easy to pick up and enjoy, but the difficulty will best suit those looking for a challenge.

    The hidden object side of things works as you would expect and the mini games are all just as enjoyable as on the PC, comprising of Match three, word searches, jigsaws, a version of pairs and puzzle rotation. It's not a hard game by any means but it is one that will take a fair while to complete, and some of the object clues might make you scratch your head for a while.

    If you played and liked Darkest Dungeon on PC, picking up the tablet edition is a no-brainer. For five bucks, you can take your dungeon-crawling on-the-go, and even continue adventures you've started on the PC by exporting your save file via Dropbox. That said, Darkest Dungeon certainly isn't for everyone. It feels like a game that wants to beat you down by throwing its systems at you. This can be fun to a point, but it also makes the game feel pretty oppressive and downright random. Considering the game is about fighting off eldritch horrors, this makes a certain amount of sense, but it also makes for a less fun game experience.

    The problem with Platoonz is that moving soldiers forward, dodging enemy traps and bombs, and then taping on enemies one by one as they are encountered can get tedious.

    Champs: Battlegrounds offers an interesting take on the MOBA genre, but its mismatched mechanics only serve to get in the way.

    Those that have previously played Backflip's previous game, DragonVale, will find a great majority of the mechanics are a fair duplicate of what is found in Gizmonauts. While the slight variations certainly add to the experience, it is not enough of a change to shake the feeling of déjà vu onset by every play session.

    Bounce missiles back at the enemy through some well timed line drawing in this fun if sometimes samey arcade style game.

    Great graphics, strong platforming mechanics and a mostly flawed (though sometimes smooth) combat system make Shadow Guardian a tough game to rate.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, the sub-par visuals and uncooperative controls all work against the game, and all it takes is a little bit of frustration to send players scampering for another title. Still, if you can look past those faults you'll likely have some good fun with this one.

    Golf Kingdoms is amusing for a while; I love to see some experimentation in 2D golf games, though there could be some more variety and quantity in the courses, and having some easier ones to start off with could make the game easier to get into. Let's see what if anything comes next.

    All in all, $0.99 is a minimal risk to give this game a whirl, and fans of the slingshot, bow and arrow, catapult style games will find some interesting complexity and enjoyable features with this game. Those who have found themselves exhausted with this style may find respite somewhere else.

    There's a ton of potential in SpySpy. The more forgiving early stages are proof of this. However, until the controls get a tweaking (at least let us get off of ladders without having to climb all the way to the bottom) I can't really call it a "must play." Maybe more like "must watch."

    I see vast amounts of potential in Roblade, especially once creative members of the iOS community start playing around with the creation tools, but unless the core building interface gets a fairly major overhaul it's bound to remain inaccessible to less diehard enthusiasts.

    Shuffle Cats is a really good multiplayer rummy game that shows promise of getting better over time.

    The game is just plain satisfying to play and the ever-present draw of earning better gear is a great motivator. I'm not too keen on the way the increasing difficulty can back players into a corner if they're saving for a particular gun (and completed stages can't be replayed), and money takes a long time to earn, but that's just how it is. I mean it's a game about shooting zombies. What else does anyone need to know, really?
