    One of the finest JRPGs comes to iOS and it's a sublime release, despite a few quibbles.

    The RPG elements are fantastic, the story is great, and the graphics and sound are amazing. In a game like this, I would expect longevity to be a concern, but if you do everything in the game, it will probably take you 10-15 hours… and maybe more, to complete.

    While Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for iPhone offers a similar experience to its console counterpart, it won't be the 3D graphic-intensive one you were probably hoping for. That said, the game combines the use of brilliant on-screen controls, immersive objects and environments, comic-like visuals, and supreme attention to detail throughout to bring the first version of the GTA franchise to iPhone.

    Auro has plenty of rules to keep to, but it's a very rewarding tactical experience.

    This sequel to an iOS classic builds on what made the original so great, all while weaving a web of new mysteries.

    Not only is XCOM: Enemy Unknown one of 2012s best strategy games, it's also one of the most faithful iOS ports I've ever seen.

    It's one of those games that's obviously been designed specifically for iOS users, the current crop of iOS users that have grown accustomed to quality portable titles, from the ground up. It probably shouldn't be missed.

    Bug Heroes 2 doesn’t simply succeed in reaching the rather high bar Foursaken Media has already set for itself; it breezes past it almost effortlessly.

    Lords of Waterdeep is an elegant D&D-themed board game port that fans can enjoy in both single and multiplayer modes.

    At the risk of sounding cliché, it's not hard to argue that FIFA 13 is a pitch perfect adaption of the world's sport. While that might be a bit extreme, the brand's dedication to tweaking game mechanics until they are perfect, seems to be shining through loud and clear.

    Skylanders Trap Team is a great fit for series fans that are looking for a more portable version, but it can still be something of a money pit.

    Bejeweled is, as always, a very familiar but always exciting experience. The visuals are spot on, really taking advantage of the retina display, and the various modes give players some good choices so they don't get burned out.

    A very good-looking game, and one that is well-designed. The levels can be daunting at times, but it really just takes some strategic planning in order to solve the game's challenges. For those who have played one too many tower defense games and want a new perspective on things, this is worth checking out.

    While you won't get any new content for upgrading to the HD version, it's so pretty I can't see why you wouldn't.

    But really, Kingdom Conquest does a fantastic job at being more than just the typical farming game, while keeping a lot of what makes these types of freemium games work.

    An exceptionally well designed, visually pleasing and frantically challenging action title.

    Without trying to sound too positive about the game, I am thrilled that someone is finally trying to break the dual stick genre out of its little box.

    With very rich, vibrant colors and some solid match 3 game play, Piyo Blocks 2 is a great game for anyone looking for a challenge.

    An excellent effort. It's neat, simple, frantic, and very, very addictive, and a suitable new home for my words-based superpower.

    Qvoid is an inventive puzzle game with beautiful graphics and a steady learning curve. The challenges are engrossing and complex enough to be entertaining without overly frustrating.

    Ant Raid shows how sneaky the casual RTS is. What seems cute and mindless is actually incredibly fun because it encourages one to think and use a little foresight. It may not be a gateway directly into something like Starcraft but hey, it's a start.

    It's possibly one of the best iOS puzzle games in recent memory, and it's available at a price that's downright foolish to pass up.

    Windosill is a game that I feel should be experienced by everyone. The puzzles are well thought out, it looks and sounds great and has such a unique feel. Really great stuff.

    Little Things Forever won't appeal to those who like tons of action or marauding zombies, but for the mellower solving set and as a family activity it's a delight. It's also the rare game where I urge you to turn the volume up – even the music makes for a wonderfully addictive experience.

    Dragon Quest V is arguably one of the finest installments in the series so, yes, you should get it.
