    The whole experience is technically sound, but something felt lacking. It's a solid game with a pretty face, but it is missing that special element that makes some games great.

    Those that have previously played Backflip's previous game, DragonVale, will find a great majority of the mechanics are a fair duplicate of what is found in Gizmonauts. While the slight variations certainly add to the experience, it is not enough of a change to shake the feeling of déjà vu onset by every play session.

    This game is a million digitized fist bumps.

    Swipe the Deck is a simple idea and one that isn't quite as "Must Play" as one would hope. What is there, though, is an enjoyable distraction for a while.

    Despite these flaws, the game does iterate on both the original Cubed Rally Racer and even on Temple Run to create something new.

    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.

    It just seems that the battle mechanics could use a little tweaking before the next episode graces the App Store.

    It's a fun game to play for a short time, but the ever sinking feeling that more money needs to be invested, affects that urge to keep plugging away at it.

    Flea Symphony has a lot of potential to be more engaging, but the developers still did an excellent job making this game fun.

    Motley Blocks doesn't quite offer that "just one more go" factor, as it's tricky stuff at times, but it is an interesting take on a tried and tested formula. Albeit, available at a rather pricey $2.99.

    A rather solid dual-stick shooter.

    At times, Hollywood Monsters might feel a little too zany for its own good. It lacks the polish of something like Broken Sword, but what it does offer is a traditional adventure game, warts and all.

    The Portal of Power is the best justification for this game. For those looking for a new reason to use their Skylanders figure collection, or wanting to get into it, then buy the Portal of Power and go crazy. Otherwise, stay away: as a purely-virtual experience, it's somewhat lacking.

    Setting aside the spotty voice work and choppy animations, The Journey Down: Chapter One is still an adventure worth taking. It doesn't trump work from Telltale or Lucasarts, but with a little more refinement it could sit comfortably at the table with them.

    Repulze is a slick futuristic racer with some spotty controls that (thankfully) can be fine tuned to fit just about anyone's needs. However, anyone who also needs real competition will find nothing but disappointment when they realize there aren't any other people or AI racers to take on.

    Virtual buttons are a nuisance, yes, but sometimes they're just the better way to do things. Or at least with Joe Danger Touch, while touch-optimized controls were clearly important, they were not perfected before shipping, and they're a large part of why this one crashes and burns too much for me.

    Though Death Golf shows early promise, the lack of variety, repetitive mechanics and frustrating movement controls hold it back from reaching its aspirations.

    The game definitely works as something that requires some thought, but nothing too strenuous.

    I've been really impressed by Pangolin. The artwork is great and the gameplay and controls are different enough to set the game apart from other games in the genre.

    Dingle Dangle runs the risk of frustrating more impatient gamers, especially with such awkward controls, but it's certainly got something about it. With a bit of fine-tuning, Dingle Dangle could be really something quite addictive.

    Tennis in the Face is not about tennis at all. It has a crazy premise, but good level design and fun game play. It's a very easy and casual game to kill a few minutes with.

    Kairo is the kind of game that should please most old school adventure game fans. Especially those who enjoy semi-obscure puzzles built around a series of rules they have to figure out on their own. However, thanks to the useful hint system even less puzzle savvy players can enjoy themselves without getting frustrated.

    Cracking Sands is a comprehensive top-down racer. Although it plays like many other racing games, the numerous game mode, races, and customization features make it one of the better racing apps available.

    Mostly, Mushroom Wars is all about outnumbering the competition and that's something that is down to timing rather than tactical thinking. It's a fun ride for a time, but with little else in terms of content such as the PSN original's multiplayer mode, it's lacking.

    Table Top Racing offers hectic combat racing for a very reasonable price.

    This game is more obfuscating than it is complex, and while its disparate elements made me want to like it, playing it did a lot to dissuade me in an immediate fashion.

    It’s a fun ride, but one that isn’t quite as gripping as it should be. Tin Man Games has done a fine job of converting the book to the iOS format, but it’s just not the greatest of Fighting Fantasy titles. Still, nostalgic fans will enjoy it sufficiently for the asking price. Others can feel their interest piqued ready for further installments.

    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.

    Despite such signs of a changing market, Beastie Bay might not be the finest of titles from the developer but there’s still satisfaction to be had, once fully understood, although don’t expect to be able to play across multiple devices as there’s still, oddly, no iCloud save support.

    Clear Vision 2 is a great follow up to the original game. It’s a lot of the same thing but I like that it keeps going with the same story and delves deeper into Tyler’s troubled life. Fans of the original will want to pick this sequel up, especially since it’s only $0.99. My only complaint is that it can be repetitive and the missions are short, but this can also be seen as a benefit for those only wanting to distract themselves for a few minutes during the day.
