    HeadshotsAlley is not a "for all ages" kind of game. The subject matter, visuals, and overall difficulty might be too much for some to handle. Anyone who isn't bothered by these three elements, however, should have a grand old time blasting face and chasing that high score.

    Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker isn't going to be a game that taxes old hands at the adventure gaming genre, but it is a decent example of what publisher Big Fish Games can offer. It'll only take around 3-4 hours to complete but it's a fun experience with the option of two difficulty levels, affecting play.

    Tiny Troopers is fun in small doses and has the makings of a pretty cool casual war game. It's just that the soldiers' movements aren't entirely accurate. An issue that doesn't go well with permadeath. It's certainly entertaining in its own way, but requires a lot of patience to get anywhere.

    It’s just tanks, battling it out. It’s not the best-controlling game ever, and the concept won’t light the world on fire, but it’s just tanks. It’s 99 cents to control a tank across 70 levels, and that’s it.

    Gunman Taco Truck has a certain charm to its concept and gameplay structure, but its component parts end up feeling too disparate and random to be compelling. This, combined with some weird gameplay quirks, make it hard to stick with the game for too terribly long.

    While Flick Champions isn’t anything worth writing home about, the many different ways to approach the title helps augment the replayability. It is hard to say how long it will maintain a player’s interest, but at least the potential for preoccupation is there.

    Freefall Defender is extremely simple but it's also kind of fun. It doesn't set the world on fire but it passes the time nicely enough. Give it a shot if you're in the mood for quirky simplicity. Don't expect depth though!

    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.

    My only niggle with Save The Birds is the way ads are built around the game. You can remove them for a fee, and of course that's fair enough, but I don't like how some of them seem almost geared to trick players into clicking them by mimicking achievement messages.

    THINK- Mind Path sets out to be a puzzle game that's slow, methodical and almost therapeutic. It succeeds in that regard but the core puzzle gameplay itself is too straightforward and unmemorable to keep it from being anything that special.

    Follow the Rabbit is a great introductory game for kids just getting into the world of mobile-gaming, and those looking for a very lightly paced, fun game in-between meetings or on the bus-ride home. It's not that the game does anything wrong; it actually gets a lot right, but for its sake, let's hope future levels offer a bit more of a challenge.

    D-Day 1944 is a little simplistic once users get past the animated battle layouts and descriptive element but it still serves as a great tool to encourage children into learning more about this very important subject. For the adult history fan, it's probably a little too basic to be worth the asking price but for dipping a toe into the historical event, it's ideal.

    Now featuring almost one hundred and fifty stages, Early Bird HD is a beefy offering to say the least. Unfortunately, the core gameplay mechanics aren’t anything that we haven’t seen many times before on iOS. Move quickly and snag the game while it is still free, because once the $1.99 price tag returns the download may be a bit more difficult to justify.

    I love Max and the Magic Marker more in concept than in execution. If the platforming elements were tighter, and if the exploration elements were properly accommodated by the game, then this could be something truly special.
