    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.

    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.

    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.

    All in all, if you love the spooky, mystery subset of hidden object games, you will love The Cursed Heart.

    This is an interesting and challenging puzzle game. The starter pack is simple enough to draw you in, but difficult enough to make you want more.

    Lili is truly a one-of-a-kind game. It's one of those titles that you just have to have, and though it's on the higher end of iOS game pricing at $4.99, it's well worth the cost. If you only buy one game this week, make it Lili.

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

    The thing that stands out the most about this game is the beautiful artwork.

    It's ultra simple with only one game mode, though there are leaderboards and achievements that add some depth.

    If you enjoyed Nano Panda, or if you're simply looking for a an action-packed casual game that's impossible to put down, check out Electric Tentacle.

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

    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.

    It's a fresh mix and will keep you going at it for a while, because I certainly did try to beat my own scores several times.

    They did a great job with the visuals, music, and easy to understand tools for making your on simulated world. If you are looking for a game that will reward creative minds, then I recommend spending some time this weekend with Topia World Builder.

    If you grew up with Crazy Taxi, you won't be disappointed with this iOS port. It plays well and the controls are almost as responsive as you want them to be.

    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.

    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.

    I'm definitely enjoying Wreck-It Ralph so far, and I think that it's a great price for three games (one dollar gets you three games that would probably cost a dollar each). The graphics are great, and all of the games are simple, pick-up-and-play games that you can easily kill a few minutes with.

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

    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.

    Quite an enchanting game, and it's a pretty remarkable combination of adventure, music, puzzles, and mini-games.

    While I'm finding the game to be really fun to play, I think that the pacing of difficulty could be improved. It seems incredibly hard to really get far in the second stage, but I suppose that this is good for anyone who likes a challenge.

    The game is beautiful, simple, and incredibly challenging.

    Temple Run Brave was not the game that I hoped it would be, but I still enjoyed the updated graphics and the new arrow shooting mechanic.

    There's a learning curve to this game, but if you can stick it out and learn the mechanics of Human Defense, you'll be rewarded with a fun game that's quite challenging.

    Even with the over-abundance of in-app purchases, this game is fun.
