    The iOS conversion is pretty good, even despite the screen restrictions, and it's all forgiven when you're wrapped up in the storyline so much. It's an expensive purchase but one that will offer you dozens of hours of memorable gameplay.

    I was disappointed that there was no multiplayer included in the game, but there's always room for new game modes in future updates. Even with no multiplayer, it is still one of the best all around boxing games in the App Store.

    For a quick, simple play, the earlier levels of Wimp offer quite a bit, and as the play progresses there is a bit of an increase in difficulty not just in puzzles, but how the platforming functions. Thankfully, as I stated, unless going for the completionist route, there is plenty to do without getting too frustrated.

    For the most part, there haven't been many pushes to spend additional money and for this I am grateful. I do however think that the quality of the game would merit a download price. The developers have done a good job at giving players an addictive and fun game at no cost. I'd recommend giving it a try.

    If you're only in it for multiplayer, you might feel a little restricted with only 5 maps and 5 guns to choose from, but the single player campaign more than makes up for this. I was truly impressed by the quality that's gone into it.

    At its core, Man in a Maze is a family friendly puzzler that's well designed with smooth controls, humorous graphics and varied gameplay. Aside from adding iCade support, there wasn't anything that I didn't like about it. Whether players have a twisted sense of humor, love mazes or can't get enough game shows packed into their day, it's definitely a keeper and highly recommendable.

    Pizza vs. Skeletons is what I love about reviewing. In an endless queue of redundant concepts out pops a game that is utterly unexpected, irreverent and loads of fun to play. Expect this one to be a long-time hit and to spawn many cheesy copycats; it's just that tasty.

    I cannot stress enough just how much fun I’ve been having with LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes. It’s the LEGO game I’ve apparently always wanted: perfectly sized levels, tons of hidden stuff, and even more unlockables (80 playable characters!). It’s time to pick up some wonderful toys.

    While it might look like more of the same at first glance, Bonzai Blade is still very much worth a second (even third) look. It's familiar, yes, but it does plenty of things differently – better, even – while still utilizing the expected elements that have made the genre so popular in the first place.
