    Rotate a maze in order to feed a baby in this cutesy and surprisingly enjoyable physics puzzler of sorts.

    Warhammer 40,000: Carnage is a very straightforward action game that knows it, and maximizes the strengths it has.

    The graphics are stunning, the concept is fresh, and the controls are tried and true.

    Don't miss this spiky gem. If putting that shiny new iPad or iPhone to great gaming use is the journey, Crazy Hedgy is the destination.

    Fans of the Metroidvania genre of platformer will find a great example of the genre here.

    Amateur Surgeon 3 keeps the same goofy gameplay that Adult Swim's series has been known for, but is now free-to-play, for better or for worse.

    The act of hitting an object that's careening towards the center of the screen isn't complex in any way, but it can be fun. Quite a bit of fun, actually. And the option to choose from three different difficulties makes it possible for players with a fairly wide range of skill levels to partake.

    It's more involved than a typical corridor flyer, looks great, plays well and is absolutely loaded with challenge. The price might look a bit scary, but I think fans of this kind of game will get their money's worth here.

    The shaking method to destroy the droplets is a nice touch but Liqua Pop still feels like something that either needs a price drop or some extra features to make it truly worth a purchase.

    There is absolutely no point to Doodle God, other than "gotta catch 'em all!" But, in some weird way…it's addictive. Insanely so.

    Providing more storyline and more intrigue, Republique: Episode 3 is a fun journey if a little repetitive in places.

    Vlambeer deserve credit for making a fantastic game, and along with Halfbot, they deserve a ton of credit for making this a shining example of how to bring this kind of game to mobile properly. Even after all the weapons were unlocked, I still found myself chasing after the unlockable characters and modes that require superhuman-level performances in order to succeed. This sets a high bar for other iOS releases to try and match this year.

    It'll take more than a terrible script with horribly awkward dialog to derail this impressive JRPG.

    It is brilliant and beautiful, but the control issues put a real damper on my enjoyment of the game.

    Featuring everything from immersive environments to an expansive campaign, AXL: Full Boost is a game that is well worth checking out.

    The unusual mechanics set Cling! apart from other puzzle-platformers.

    Hills of Glory is great fun to play, and the special abilities of each soldier type are fun to use. The game's visuals aren't the shiniest you'll see but they get the job done and they bring a bit of character to the game.

    The controls make me question the future of such extraordinary titles on iOS devices. Rockstar Games has clearly done everything possible to make them work but there's still that sense that this would all be so much easier with a physical controller.

    One of the App Store's lesser-known treasures.

    ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection might be a hard sell to those who have never played on a Spectrum or other 8 bit computer before. For those who have though, it's an ideal walk down memory lane and really reinforces how far technology has come.

    Much like its predecessor Carnivores: Ice Age is all about being different and being intelligent in its portrayal of the genre. If you weren't taken by Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter this isn't for you. If you were though, this is a worthy addition to the collection.

    Cows vs. Aliens does exactly what a casual iPhone game does best. It's very simple to get into but it'll keep you playing for longer than you'd expect of such a basic idea.

    SteamBirds, from the makers of Canabalt, is fun for a time, but doesn't do enough to earn a spot with the App Store elite.

    Quite fun at times, but its controls can make the game more frustrating than it ought to be. Still, if you love retro-inspired games, and especially the Llamatron and Robotron games, or just want something a little different from the typical arena shooter, Minotron: 2112 is a solid purchase – and at worst, it's interesting reading material.

    A simple idea but it's compelling fun. Rushing up through the elevator shaft brings with it just the right level of tension without being infuriating.

    It is an addictive, casual experience that lends itself to short bursts of portable gaming bliss.

    While slinging Blobster around the game's levels, watching him bounce all over the place, it really feels like one's playing with a toy, rather than simply controlling another video game character. This is what makes Blobster a unique, stand-out platformer.

    I was, and still am, genuinely surprised and impressed with Emissary of War. It's fun, funny and genuinely different in a genre over-saturated with Blizzard wannabes.

    Dragon Fantasy's homage to old-school RPGs is both its greatest strength and weakness; it's at times a fun neo-classical romp, but then the worst classical elements rear their head and it's just a reminder that sometimes there's a reason why games evolve.

    Fling a Thing manages to combine flinging physics, arcade tomfoolery and just a hint of virtual pet with surprising success.
