    Drain Pipe Surf Dudes takes the popular tilt based endless runner motif and makes it cool and interesting. The ability to perform freestyle tricks might have been welcome, but what is there is an enjoyable experience. It's particularly great to dip into for short sessions of fun progressions.

    So, while I think the control mechanic is a step back, Temple Run fans who are clamoring for new iterations on the genre to play should have a good time with One Epic Knight and what it brings to the table.

    It's a calm and quite serene experience that still manages to infuriate at times. It's also the kind of game that's ideal for a group of people to join in as, like with many cryptic puzzles, a few extra brains can go a long way to seeing things a little differently.

    If the biggest issue with Pig's Dreams is repetition, when the "fun level" is this high, there could be much worse problems to have. Plus, the "dream" world structure leaves plenty of room for expansion later on down the road. Clocking in at only ninety-nine cents, this is the kind of game that will certainly give you more than enough bang for the buck to justify an instant purchase.

    At risk of sounding jaded, Blobster Christmas feels like a glorified level pack set to a soundtrack that repetitively resembles a holiday orchestra. If this were say, an Angry Birds game, this would have been a completely free update.

    Rocket Island scratches that itch between casual strategy game that is just tap-and-move and far too full of dense information so that entire evenings are lost in the bat of an eyelash. There's just enough depth and charm to keep one entertained for a dozen minutes here and there, and the same amount of whimsy found in older god-simulation titles.

    Vignettes is perhaps a little too mysterious, but that's a minor gripe in the grand scheme of things. It's an otherwise entertaining and stylish puzzle game that will definitely mess with your head in a lot of creative and mind-bending ways.

    Every pixel in Gun Runner is placed as a solid homage to the 80′s titles that inspired it. Even the heavy metal bleeps and bloops of the 8-bit soundtrack are perfect for a quick trip back in time with a shiny new game.

    It's similar in style to Tetris and Snake, but it has enough originality to keep gamers from feeling like they've never played it before. With progressively challenging levels and a huge number of stages, it's definitely worth adding to the game collection if you can get past the IAPs.

    Starman is a fun enough puzzle game, but what really makes it stands out is its fantastic visual design. The black and white aesthetic, combined with richly detailed and interesting environments, makes for a game that you want to stare at all day. Although it isn’t a super long experience, and some of its puzzles can be troublesome, Starman is worth taking a look at.

    Pinch 2 HD can be a real brain-teaser, with levels that are extremely challenging, especially if the player's goal is to collect all the medals. It requires a lot of outside-the-box thinking, and can be maddening at times.

    It's a very well made game, with highly polished visuals and very responsive controls, it's a lot of fun, and a heap of frustration is relieved by the "so close" message that appears when being one move away from completing the level, saving me from going around in an endless circle.

    Trials 2 HD veterans might feel a little cheated by the level of difficulty here, but they'll still find fun to be had. For the lesser mortals like me, it's a great way of reaping the benefits of such a genre with less frustration!

    Blade Lords does get points for really trying to do something different with the one-on-one combat experience by going down a familiar route. While I'd like to see less monetization influence and more pure fighting game influence added, this is still interesting enough to check out for fighting fans.

    Wingsuit Stickman is a fun game that takes full advantage of accelerometer controls. But it can be quite challenging. I would NOT suggest this game to someone with a short temper when it comes to games. I have a friend that I'm quite sure would through an iPhone if I got him to play this one.

    The game mechanics tie together neatly so Grow Away! proves to be excellent fun. Levels gradually work their way up in terms of difficulty, ensuring that players never feel too out of depth or patronised. Grow Away! is near guaranteed to offer hours of vegetable flinging fun.

    Zombies as a cultural phenomenon may run the risk of being passe' and overdone very soon (My prediction? The zombie bubble collapses when a broadcast TV network decides to make their own ripoff of The Walking Dead), but thankfully Zombieville USA 2 does a great job at interpreting a classical genre in the modern era.

    I loved my first playthrough of Firetop Mountain, even though I died. On the second playthrough, I was laser focused on beating it and did so while skipping over a lot of the text I read the first time. After that, I didn't really want to go back to the game. For a roguelike, this would be a terrible thing, but for a game book, I suppose that's not too shabby. Despite some of its issues, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is certainly a complete and compelling package, though maybe not one you'll want to revisit.

    Undead Slayer is really entertaining. It controls well, it's simple, yet uncannily deep. It looks good, and despite the painful dialogue, shallow story, and lagginess, it's a solid hack-em-up. Lively and outrageous, we had a blast with this one.
