    The game looks breathtaking, especially if you appreciate minimalistic vector graphics, and the music is a joy to listen to. As a fan of Metroidvania games, I’m sad to see the lack of them in the App Store, so forma.8 GO is a pleasant surprise in recent weeks. I’m a bit surprised at how big the map is, and the controls require a bit of practice to get the hang of things, but it just feels right after you get used to it. I’ve barely scratched the surface of the game, and I look forward to playing it even more when I have the opportunity to do so.

    I downloaded Flipping Legend as soon as it was available on the App Store, and I have had a hard time putting it down, honestly. I love voxel graphics, and Flipping Legend has done them beautifully. The music is pretty catchy as well, and I like how it is an integral part of the gameplay. Controls are simple to pick up, but getting the rhythm perfectly will take some time. There is a lot of goals to accomplish that keep the game feeling fresh, and the difficulty of the game means there’s plenty of reason to keep coming back as you try and beat your previous best score. Overall, Flipping Legend is a fantastic high score chaser that is worth a download.

    Even if you are not a math person, Divide By Sheep is a puzzle game that is worth your time.

    I recommend giving Tiny Rogue a try if you enjoy turn-based roguelike RPGs or are a fan of Ravenous Games in general.

    I highly recommend checking out Forgotten Forest: Afterlife if you are a match-three puzzle game fan and want something that stands out from the crowd.

    Even though I was not too familiar with Skullgirls before this week, I think I’m now a fan. The artwork is downright amazing, and I love the voice acting for these lively characters. The music is also catchy and pleasant, and I’m not that big of a jazz fan to begin with. While I still prefer physical buttons for my fighting games, I think Skullgirls did well with the touch screen controls, because they’re not too bad and everything is responsive. The story is interesting and I like that there are multiple game modes so you can always find something entertaining if you need a break from a particular mode. While I don’t think I’ll be using the Fight Assist mode, it’s nice that the option is there for those who usually don’t play fighting games, which make this title truly a “fighting game for everyone.”

    I highly recommend checking out Heroki if you are in the mood for a fun and challenging action adventure platforming game.

    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.

    Even though it’s a rather unforgiving game, I still think that Green Game TimeSwapper is a must for anyone who likes a good puzzle game.

    It does take some getting used to, but the game is fun, addictive, and definitely one I’ll be coming back to time and time again.

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

    The graphics in this title are lovely and full of charm, the sound is done well, the randomized gameplay keeps things fresh and interesting on each run, and the challenging hack-n-slash style game mechanic mixed with match-three means a fresh and fun new take on a tried-and-true genre. There’s more strategy required for this game than some others, but the end results are so satisfying. Tavern Guardians is a title I’ll be coming back to over and over again in the near future, and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a challenging strategy match-three RPG game.

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

    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.

    I’ve spent a bit of time with the game since I downloaded it earlier this week, and even though I’m still early on, I’m enjoying every minute of it. Sure, it may not be a main Kingdom Hearts game, but it is definitely something to help satisfy my Kingdom Hearts fix until KH3 comes out.

    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.
