    With its high quality graphics, its hand drawn comics, and its fun personality, Retrobot is one game that you won't want to miss this week.

    Dead Stop offers little changes to the gameplay, while still being a solid tower defense adventure.

    The visuals and soundtrack are definitely reminiscent of the old-school RPG days, and I absolutely love the Penny Arcade humor in the character dialogue. The only other complaint I have about it, besides the small joystick issue, is the fact that the text in dialogue boxes can be pretty small, considering how much space there is.

    This is an entertaining arcade game that is similar to match-three puzzles, but mixes things up by making the colors constantly move. It also has elements of tap action arcade gaming, so fans of either genre can get into this app.

    I am loving the charming and colorful visuals in the game, and the gameplay is simple enough for even the most casual gamer. But the best part of the game are the challenging puzzles that you will have to solve.

    My only complaint is that it takes some trial and error to figure out where to make drawings in this version of the game, but it's still a great game even when you're experimenting.

    This game is full of adventure and action. It includes a great combination of different arcade classics, while still testing your physics-based puzzle skills.

    Tread of the Dead may have simplistic gameplay, but it's fun because it is one of those great casual games that you can pick up and play for just a few minutes at a time.

    I highly recommend checking out Lines the Game if you’re interested in a new zen-like puzzle game.

    If you're a fan of side-scrollers and just fun explosions and chaos, then I highly recommend checking out Storm the Train.

    I've become quite addicted to it, and it's a great way to ring in the new season of MLP this weekend.

    If you're a fan of Fruit Ninja, you will love Jack Lumber.

    Players who like word games will enjoy the challenge of trying to create the most destructive path out of letters. However, it is not like Scrabble or Words with Friends. This game is less about creating words and more about the adventure of defeating enemies and unlocking treasures.

    Overall, this iPhone game is entertaining and challenging. Players must really stretch their puzzle solving skills to the limit in order to get far.

    Stupid Zombies 2 features impressive graphics and a ton of levels (300, to be exact), but there wasn't enough new content to distinguish this game from the original, in my opinion.

    This is a fun arcade style game for fans of side-scrolling platforms. Even though there are times when an in-app purchase would make this game easier to play, you can get pretty far without having to pay real cash.

    If you're a fan of endless runners that are in the similar vein of Temple Run, then I highly recommend checking out Pocket Climber.

    If you are a fan of destruction, blowing things up, and dual-stick shooters, then I highly recommend checking out iBomber Attack.

    I kind of wish that the game provided some indicator on the screen to tell you where the next bubble is going to be, because I'm having a bit of a hard time finding it before being a snack for the zombies. But I suppose that this is the challenge that should appeal to many.

    What makes this game so interesting is how it looks. Most tower defense games are cartoony, have zombies, or at least look like towers. This game uses very minimalistic graphics. It presents a sleek looking game that even the toughest of dudes won't feel silly playing.

    If you're looking for a fantastically original game to pick up this week, I definitely recommend giving Negative Nimbus a try. It will brighten up your day, or even week.

    The game itself is fantastic - it has a rich story with several big surprises, fun gameplay, and plenty of content.

    There are plenty of weapons to use, and since you can have two, the combinations are fun to try out and see what works the best.

    The game looks gorgeous, the music is delightful, and the controls are intuitive for the platform. While it can be a challenge, it is still a great way to de-stress since you aren’t pressured with time or a limited number of trees.

    This game is loads of fun and offers plenty of stunts to try out over and over again.

    I highly recommend this game if you enjoy match-three puzzles with RPG elements mixed in with real-time strategy. It’s just an incredibly in-depth game experience you just have to try for yourself.

    This is a fun game that is similar to a castle defense game, but has arcade shooter elements to it as well. It is entertaining and exciting, but not challenging at all.

    Coaster Crazy is a lot of fun, especially for people who love RollerCoaster Tycoon. I've been waiting for a version of that game to come to iOS, and while Coaster Crazy isn't the same game, it's a great substitute.
