    True to its name, Silly Sausage is wonderfully creative, charming, and--of course--silly.

    Don't Starve: Shipwrecked is worth checking out if you like the kind of gameplay that the Don't Starve series offers. This entry does a few new things, but not quite enough to feel like it will win over too many new fans. For me, I respect these games and can have a decent time with them from time to time, but the prospect of restarting on every death fills me with a kind of dread that pushes me away from diving back in.

    A Normal Lost Phone may not be the longest or most mechanically dense game out there, but I enjoyed every moment I spent with it. It's writing and story are so well presented that your phone snooping feels incredibly real and personal. It's a level of intimacy that most other video games completely fail to capture, which just goes to show how special A Normal Lost Phone is.

    Even though it's on the easy and short side, there's really nothing quite like Splitter Critters out there. Tearing environment feels amazing and allows for some really creative puzzle design that is delightful to discover. Go play this game. You won't be disappointed.

    MUL.MASH.TAB.BA.GAL.GAL's use of Pong mechanics makes it one of the best action-oriented roguelikes on mobile. The game gets appropriately overwhelming and challenging while maintaining a simple control scheme that doesn't rely on virtual buttons or other problematic mobile control schemes. Every time I play it, I feel like there's something new to do or discover, which is a rare thing to say of a game, particularly one that is built on a foundation as simple as Pong.

    If you are craving a platformer that pushes your skills to their limits, go pick up Golf Zero or something. The Big Journey just wants you to be happy, and it succeeds at doing that by providing a familiar formula in an adorable package.

    Oceanhorn is a beautiful and ambitious game, but it's missing that special something to make it great.

    Suffice it to say, Junk Jack is a hands-down, no questions asked must-own for any and all iOS users who love sandbox crafting games.

    Thankfully, having long ago lost my need for perfection, I was able to continue ever onward and enjoy the zany story for what it was, moving from colons to brains and many organs between. There is quite a bit to enjoy about Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin, and it has high production values. Just be prepared for some level of frustration.

    Combining many popular genres pays off for this original and fast-paced game.

    This puzzle RPG nails its mechanics without any real issues, and does a great job of mixing up the action to keep players on their toes.

    As a big Solitaire fan, I found myself struggling to tear myself away from perfecting each of the 24 free holes and I'll certainly be investing in future courses that are unlocked through $0.99 in-app purchases. It's one of those rare games that makes time go speeding past. It might not take long to complete the free courses but it's hard to begrudge putting the money down for new courses, especially for the Solitaire fan.

    Out There is quite an interesting interstellar adventure, but the sheer level of randomness might turn off some players.

    It's extremely addictive, it has a great Game Center multiplayer mode, and it has moles. Yes, it's also supported by in-app purchases for more gems, but the game hands them out frequently enough for upgrades. This is a fantastic game.

    Any Kairosoft App Store release should be an insta-buy for sim fans at this point, and Mega Mall Story is certainly no exception. It's well worth the meager asking price, but buyer beware: it can have a profound effect on productivity. And one's social life.

    Twitchy racing aplenty in Proun+, an enjoyably tricky title.

    This game is truly fascinating to me: it does so much in its minimalism, comfortable to let the player learn and figure out what it offers. It's a triumph of game design. Play this.

    The visuals are cute yet kind of twisted in a way not unlike a 90s Nickelodeon cartoon. Meanwhile, the music perfectly conveys the sense of fast, fun madness the game itself is going for. That's really Zombie Carnaval in a nutshell. It's fun madness, emphasis on fun.

    It's a fantastic realization and adaptation of his original "sketch." This is an iOS game worth talking about, and very much worth owning. I'll be buying my own copy once it's released, that's for certain.

    Capturing the magic of Steve Jackson's Sorcery! novels, the game of the same name is a great addition for adventure game book fans.
