    Quote Unquote is a fun and novel game. Finding the answers in famous quotes isn't a gimmick and it's really unique. Anyone who loves crosswords will enjoy this app for sure.

    As a puzzle game, Monster Madness HD has a few neat wrinkles but is largely uninspired. It's simple, responsive gameplay combined with it's strong art style will probably make it shine as a way to entertain kids in the Halloween spirit.

    I’m getting to the point where I think the casual puzzle game genre is getting a little saturated. It seems a new game comes out every week that attempts to become the next Angry Birds. That being said, I don’t think that Be Together will dethrone the top games out there but I do think that it is a worthy addition to the genre. It has some lovable characters and visually-appealing artwork that makes for a friendly game environment for players of all ages.

    Sky Gnomes is an interesting short-term play experience, but those that try it out should be warned: the temptation to spend money on IAP will hit. Progress just feels too slow otherwise.

    The requisite elements for a Hidden Object game are there, but Left in the Dark: No One on Board lacks that certain something.

    One of those games that's certainly very interesting, but I don't necessarily think it is all that entertaining as a game. The weirdness will wear off at some point, and unlike Katamari Damacy, the core gameplay mechanics don't lead to anything that's fun to play down the line.

    Fans of this cult classic might be pleased to hear that the 3D futuristic RPG is receiving a new lease of life on Apple's iOS platform, even if its replay value isn't all that high.

    Flyhunter Origins is a gorgeous action game with some enjoyable concepts, but at times it's also a victim of its own prettiness.

    Bluntly put, it does not even come close to what is expected from a 3D rendered iOS environment. That said, it is very obvious that the game was a labor of love that is well worth exploring further.

    City King definitely deserves credit for trying to do things differently. It's just unfortunate that the different stuff needs a lot of refinement. Still, those looking for location-based gaming with more of an emphasis on the actual "game" part could certainly do worse.

    Bitter Sam may descend but it's not a deep plunge, nor is it innovative. But its comic appeal makes it a great a pick-up-a-play option for anyone who enjoys a pinch of irony with their gaming quick-fix.

    The game isn't going to eat up hours, but there is some added replay value in the Game Center achievements. For a casual pick-up-and-play title Cordy Sky is refined and lots of good free fun.

    I really, really like the idea behind Infinite Warrior, but the implementation needs some work. With controls that aren't quite so finicky, text that can actually be read, and a little gamma correction it would actually be really awesome. Until that happens it's doomed to be more frustrating than fun.

    Romans From Mars has all the elements one would typically expect to see from a tower defense title, while choosing not to conform to the ‘rigid’ layout of the genre.

    If someone were to go into a playthrough of Pong World with the intention of spending no money, they could, in theory at least, play forever. Granted, it would be the same level and modes ad nauseam, but free is free. However, those looking for variety and diversity in their games should look elsewhere. At its core, this is pretty much a reconfigured Atari 2600 experience, masquerading as something new.

    Old Clockmaker's Riddle is a Match Three game with more heart than most. It lacks replayability with no Endless mode or anything other than the story mode, but what is there should keep many fans happy. Shame about the rather expensive asking price, though!

    Wordchemy is a good choice for a free word game. It’s unpolished but its core is just fun and unique enough to keep that from completely bringing it down. It’s not alchemy but it can still be a little bit magic.

    Defender Chronicles 2 should satisfy those that want a unique spin on tower defense, or were clamoring for a sequel years after the innovative original game, though it is something of a flawed title.

    It's just unfortunate that the harder difficulty level really doesn't feel that much harder than the standard level. It's a worthy game for fans of the genre and benefits greatly from some nice original touches. Just don't expect to be challenged.

    There's no story, and the duels are rather simple; even so, that simplicity makes it an easy way to get a few minutes' entertainment. As a Witcher fan, I would have liked a more significant tie-in with the game world, but even so The Witcher: Versus is, if not a must-have, certainly a fun way to spend some time.

    This game isn't supposed to pack in a life-time of replay value, and its greatest appeal is likely to be to children. But, enough attention went into the small details to make this a better seasonal title than most that flood the app store at this time of year, and worth the $.99 to keep overexcited kids in check until the big day.

    It's a well-crafted pick-up-and-play title with plenty of content (45+ levels and 2 different endless modes). It's just that it's also incredibly tough. Something that will undoubtedly appeal to some, but not all.
