    Tiny Troopers is fun in small doses and has the makings of a pretty cool casual war game. It's just that the soldiers' movements aren't entirely accurate. An issue that doesn't go well with permadeath. It's certainly entertaining in its own way, but requires a lot of patience to get anywhere.

    Jump and float in this absurd, beautiful, but ultimately dissatisfying platformer.

    Even with the graphics as bad as they were, the gameplay is such that the package is a must play experience.

    Though Fast Five the Movie: Official Game is supposed to be a compliment to the film, it honestly feels like another attempt to milk Gameloft's existing customer base.

    It's a somewhat no-frills, yet highly polished package.

    With fast paced gameplay and an impressive arsenal of weapons, Zombie Shock has everything that you would ever need from a zombie game.

    Fans of Minter's work will be happy with this game, and those that just love arcade shooters will find plenty of endearing elements. Caprichoso for life!

    Those after a challenging word game will greatly appreciate Spellwood. It doesn't hand victory over to the player by any means, especially in the early stages when there is limited equipment, but it's all the better for 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.

    It's one of a very small handful of games that I would recommend wholeheartedly. I've yet to see such an impressive amalgamation of war gaming and the RPG genre, even after all these years. Just don't expect an easy ride.

    Those that enjoy their gaming in extremely small doses will find plenty to love, they just can’t expect to play for hours on end without attempts to pry into their wallet.

    Virtual City is well worth a purchase. It's a much friendlier version of SimCity and one that feels more enjoyable and less spreadsheet management- ish than other behemoth city management games.

    It's nothing extraordinarily new, and if you're sick to death of match-3's or already have one, this game isn't for you. If, however, you're a fan of the genre and need one for your iPhone or iPad, Babo Crash is a good choice.

    While prolonged play gets repetitious, it's perfect for a few minutes of undead fun.

    Touch Pets: Dogs is hands-down the best pet sim the App Store has yet seen, and it adds one more quality title to ngmoco's impressive catalog. Whether or not you're willing to invest the time and money in a virtual pet is another matter entirely.

    This one probably comes more recommended for those who want a challenge provided by a meta-game as opposed to just the game itself. Otherwise, this is a fun 16-bit romp that fits well on the touchscreen.

    I didn't really mind the lack of challenge. The general experience is enjoyable and made all the better by the cute one liners that Spongebob exclaims. For kids, they will love this Spongebob infused game. For adults, they'll enjoy the ride to the end. It's so gleefully happy, it's hard not to smile.

    Gridrunner, much like the rest of Jeff Minter's games on iOS, is a must-buy. He's actually one of the few developers that I would buy a game from as soon as I found out it was available, and I'll keep up with this.

    Even though I'm not too fond of the trial-and-error gameplay of the bulk of the stages, there's just too much to love about Amoebattle for me to care. It's a unique spin on a classic genre, and one that's more than worth any interested iOS gamer's time.

    Hairy Tales certainly has a few elements that make warding off the corruption a bit more taxing than it ought to be, but it's still a very entertaining puzzle game with loads of bushy cuteness. So go ahead; grab a crystal and start running. Just mind the gaps.

    Want a strategy game with a board game aesthetic and the depth of chess? Try Pathogen.

    League of Evil 3 is exactly the sort of quality action platformer you'd expect, but it piles on the hurt a little too much and a little too fast.

    Heroes of Order & Chaos has players teaming up online to destroy the enemy base while protecting their own. Join forces, level up, and equip powerful weapons to take to the fight against the bad guys!

    A lot of fun. Don't be discouraged by the semi-slow start, because it gets much, much better. It looks gorgeous in its simplicity, it's addicting with all its unlockables and randomized cube behavior, and just keeps giving players more.

    Fans of arena survival games like Tilt to Live, Hard Lines, and Silverfish ought to check this one out.

    Sword and Soldiers is a great example of what a casual strategy game can do. It's deep enough for core gamers to enjoy, yet is simple enough that casual gamers can get in to it, while appreciating its deeper elements.

    Egg vs. Chicken is one of those rare gems that I have to encourage as many people as possible to buy. It's cute, it's easy to play and it entices you into playing for much much longer than you'd envisage. It could well be the next Plants vs. Zombies or Angry Birds. It certainly deserves to be.

    Chip Chain neatly avoids any excessive in-app purchasing problems. It's a high quality game without it. Sure, it might not be the most attractive of games to look at, but there's a heap of fun here for Match Three fans looking for something with a bit more strategy.
