    While on its surface, Blocks Hurt! might seem a little too cheesy or low budget for most players, that shouldn't keep anyone from giving this wonderful game a try. It's unique yet familiar at the same time, and it does this without pandering to or alienating the player. Blocks might hurt, but this game makes them hurt so good.

    Despite efforts to keep things fresh with a good selection of aliens and impressive armoury, repetition does creep in as the player is essentially looking for keys to open up doors, and then backtracking to said doors. This wouldn't be too much of an issue if the player could just dip in for 5 minute blasts, but unfortunately the game doesn't save progress in terms of rooms unlocked.

    This sleek puzzler is good, but never gets fully going.

    This puzzle game asks player to combine atoms to create elements.

    A simple fun game, with gameplay and styling that will likely appeal to a wide variety of users. It's easy to start playing with enough depth and difficulty to offer fairly significant replay value.

    Rating a game like this is tough, because you will get a good deal of enjoyment out of it, but it doesn't really do anything that will remember the experience. At the end of the day, if you love RPG's, you'll like Illusia. Just don't expect greatness.

    It's quite expensive for what it offers. It's a fun game and one that will stick around on my iPhone for a while to come, but it is expensive, given what other titles can be purchased for $0.99, and its reliance on understanding the game of Poker beforehand.

    Stick Tennis is an enjoyable time-waster when the ads aren't getting in the way. Personally I'd have preferred banners instead of videos I can't skip but everyone has their own preference and anyone who can make peace with the occasional interruption should enjoy themselves thoroughly.

    Rarely are there games that can successfully manage to tickle the critical thinking and humor quadrants of the brain. Tales of Monkey Island – Episode 3: Lair of the Leviathan does this with ease, while showing players a little taste of old school gaming. This is an quest well worth continuing.

    This is a fun game and for the price it's certainly worth jumping in, even if it's just to enjoy a run through a really pretty forest.

    Steamscope is a gorgeous game with plenty of eye candy to enjoy, even if players spend most of their time bumping into walls and steam spewing pipes.

    Crucially, it's the hand drawn visuals that stand out the most in this title and that touch of class that they bring to the whole experience.

    It was enough of a throwback to remind me why I liked old school games, but forward-thinking enough to make up for those old games' shortcomings.

    Knockball is good, physics puzzling fun. There are tons of levels and many different configurations to stump players, and the physics are spot on. The fast thinking and soft touch required also mean this game has more to offer than just mindless ball rolling.

    While Puncho Fighto isn't all that complex or deep, it's entertaining. It's got a goofy style and it's just crazy enough to be fun. And it's just fun enough to soak up a few minutes here and possibly an hour or two there.

    The kind of game that's easy to drop in on for short bursts on a daily commute. Even the music is calming, invoking a soothing sense of relaxation as you progress. It'll be no good for adrenaline addicts but calm, lateral thinking fans will enjoy Tippy Tower immensely.

    Rooftop Escape is a very simple game but it's fun. The controls are accurate and appropriate and the aesthestics are basic but original. It all makes for an uncomplicated but enjoyable game.

    Hills of Glory is great fun to play, and the special abilities of each soldier type are fun to use. The game's visuals aren't the shiniest you'll see but they get the job done and they bring a bit of character to the game.

    Nifty sci-fi humor and creative power-ups keep this fight good, but not great.

    Zumba Dance is a motion-based game for the iPad that features music from chart topping artists and intense calorie-burning classes that will make users break a sweat.

    MiniGlider does have an addicting element to it. I found myself saying "Just one more time!" when I started to play it, but that feeling quickly wore off.

    It all makes for a gentle but enjoyable enough title, one that makes a change from the more safe Hidden Object games out there. It's a little on the short side but at least the price reflects that.

    The sheer fact that spending money is at all tempting is a testament to Candy Crush Saga, however. It's a fun Match Three puzzler and refreshingly taxing at times.

    This throwback title challenges players to dock or be destroyed.

    I had reasonably high hopes for Area 51 Defense, due in mo small part to the drool-inducing visuals, but the experience has dashed them to pieces. It's not a terrible tower defense game, but it's hard to recommend over the glut of other more user-friendly and downright enjoyable titles out there. Plus it kind of falters right out of the gate since it's so ridiculously similar to Epic War TD, which is free right now.

    Each of the seven different worlds is as creative as the last, and Boy Loves Girl is the ideal game to drop in on for short doses or extended sessions. It makes a pleasant change to play something so full of charm and originality.

    This remix of fast-paced shoot 'em up Hypership Out of Control should satisfy new players, but those expecting a true sequel will be let down.

    Nitpicks about the brevity and script aside, Infinite Universe is a welcome addition to Tin Man Games' portfolio. The change of theme is nice, and the new free-to-play model finally gives everyone a chance to see what all the fuss is about before parting with their finances. If the first chapter is any indication, it's going to be an adventure well worth taking.

    There's a lot to be done with this grid but it can be tough to actually play any of it.
