    I wasn't expecting Into the Dead to be an endless runner, and I certainly wasn't expecting to have as much fun with it as I have, but it is and I did. I'd recommend it as an automatic buy regardless, but the fact that it's free makes it a (I'm sorry but I have to) no-brainer.

    I love this game. CAPCOM spent a lot of time developing it and it shows. Street Fighter IV for the iPhone/iTouch is a complete, quality port of its console counterpart that will appeal to both hardcore veterans and newcomers.

    The one thing all great puzzle games share is the ability to induce players into a state where they stop thinking and are just playing. Fractal: Make Blooms Not War is one of those games and anyone looking for a cheap yet high-quality iPad puzzle game should definitely give it a look.

    Tongue very firmly in cheek, Trial of the Clone is a very funny, very enjoyable game book all about the destiny of a young clone.

    As a sequel it's more than solid, just download prepared for more of what you know and love, not a new experience.

    The environments and characters in this game are beautifully animated, each with it's own personality and flair. The controls are simple and the physics are solid.

    Heroes of Loot is about as close to pure, distilled arcadey dungeon-crawling joy as we're ever likely to get.

    Waking Mars will be loved by fans of Metroidvania-style adventure games. Some of the backtracking can get annoying, but this is another fine title from Tiger Style Games.

    If you are into "bullet hell" shooters, AirAttack is a great genre game. It's not so great that it transcends genres, but it is a solid game nonetheless.

    Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror is a fantastic game. The story feels as fresh and as entertaining as it did back in the day, and the slightly improved graphics are much appreciated. Many hours of entertaining storytelling lie ahead.

    Help! Repaint missing works of art such as “Surfing Elephants,” “Deer Taking the Alligator Ferry,” and “On the Day of the Apocalypse, Treat Yourself to a Popsicle.” This whimsical puzzler is a gem for all ages.

    I don't like to fight my games – this isn't to say that I don't like challenge entirely, but that I like the challenge to come from the content of a game, not the interface.

    One Tap Hero is an intelligent game that does what it claims, blending the genre of platform and puzzler well. Once the player gets past slight control issues there is definitely a great game to be had.

    A mixture of imaginative design and traditional twin-stick shooting, Second Chance Heroes is an enjoyable romp indeed.

    Great voice-acting, interesting gameplay, and top-notch animations set Detective Grimoire apart from the masses in a fantastic crime-solving adventure.

    Hot Springs Story isn't quite as gripping as Game Dev Story. Its subject matter being not quite as clearly enjoyable as the earlier game, plus it's really quite a serious sim, with no sign of the humor of Game Dev Story. However, in turn it's a deeper experience with more to it. This ensures that Hot Springs Story is still a great game to play, just not quite as wondrous as its predecessor.

    A clever, beautiful, vibrant game that will tickle your visual-auditory fancy. Its sublime levels, decorated with rich, textured art and graphics and polished, engrossing game play will entice you into playing over and again.

    The (in my opinion) over-priced card packs available through in-app purchases feel like a slap in the face, especially after already paying $5 for the game proper, but what can be bought can also be earned. And earning it, battle to battle, victory to victory, is what will keep me playing for a very long time.

    The gameplay is not only intuitive and challenging but it's also engaging. The graphics are crisp, the animations are beautifully done and I can't stop humming that catchy tune in the game. Go grab a copy of Bucketz to test your reflexes and see if you can become a master of balance. I can't think of a better way to spend two dollars.

    Electric Tentacle might not have that ridiculously addictive quality that something like Tiny Wings might still retain, it needs a few more persistent challenges to accomplish that, but what is there adds something original to the genre. Something that we could all do with occasionally.

    With the number of tracks and the challenge of getting a gold mark on each one, it's going to take players a while to get through this game. Skyriders is definitely a fun diversion with plenty of action!

    Even floaty physics and control issues can’t derail this absolutely stunning interactive history of typography/platformer.
