    Having challenges and other game modes to play is a nice change from the standard fare that I normally play, and I'm especially enjoying the Two-Headed Giant mode (a team battle) from the Custom Games option.

    Trivi.al is one of the more enjoyable trivia games that I have played. The visual appeal and clean menu layout makes the game inviting to gamers of all types, and the competition factor will get you hooked after a few rounds. With both a free and paid version, there's no reason why you shouldn't hop in to the world of Trivi.al right now.

    If you're a word game lover, you will want to give Lumicon a try.

    This is becoming one of my favorite new social games, and I highly recommend you give it a try, especially if you love puzzle games already. It's a welcome and fun challenge on your iPhone.

    While it is a paymium title, like many of Gameloft's recent releases, The Amazing Spider-Man manages to provide a sense of freedom from both the in-app purchases, and the natural laws of physics as well.

    If you want a taste of what it's like to perform maintenance and repairs in space, give Astronaut Spacewalk a try. The level of detail and realism is extraordinary, and you won't find anything else like it on the App Store.

    Left2Die is an enjoyable game, and should definitely appeal to iDevice-owning zombie fans. Even if you're not a huge fan of the genre, the game is packed with a lot of fun and action. For the price, it's definitely worth checking out.

    Considering the large number of Temple Run spin-offs that have spawned on the App Store, it is nice to see that some developers know how to put their own spin on things.

    This is a great turn-based strategy game. The graphics are great and the gameplay is challenging, depending on your skills against other real-life players.

    I should also mention the graphics, which look great. The characters are well designed and the levels are all sufficiently varied to keep gameplay interesting.

    This new take on a classic RPG game is well worth the download. If you are a fan of quest-heavy adventure games, this will have your right back in the car on a hot summer day, trying to keep your brother from stealing your Gameboy as you fight monsters and save the kingdom.

    This game is a lot of fun and worth the download price of only $0.99. The missions are challenging and exciting for fans of time management.

    A win for pocket casual gaming. It is fun to play, easy to figure out and cute to boot. Fans of puzzle games will enjoy the various challenges. The replay value is low because it isn't difficult to collect all three stars on every level. However, the price is reasonable and it is worth the download for the casual gamer.

    While the game isn't perfect, it's definitely a fun addition for all Batman fans. It's a great way to kill time before the movie.

    Fans of the tower defense genre will love this game. It adds a refreshing dynamic that makes it more than just a top-down turret dropping event.

    Despite less-than-stellar controls, I recommend this game to anyone that is a fan of RPGs or classic arcade games. This is basically the Puzzle Quest version of Breakout/Arkanoid, and it's fantastic.

    The core of this game, though, is filled with fun and frantic gameplay. Being able to control the game's music is the cherry on top. This is definitely a cool and quirky game. Tower defense fans will definitely do well to grab a copy before Tadstock blows it up.

    I found it to be rather fun and addictive, and while it looks simple in the beginning, it quickly gets difficult, presenting a real challenge. Perfectionists will spend some time getting everything in here.

    At first, the game starts off slow, as you would expect from any simulation game. But as you get the ball rolling, it's quite hard to put this down. I love the fact that it combines two of the most addictive types of games into one, so it's just that much more enjoyable.

    While I still like the game, it's not perfect. The controls need a bit more work, especially having an option to directly go down platforms rather than jumping first. Oh, and strafing would be nice - currently, you can only move forward while shooting, but not shoot while moving backwards.

    This is a fantastic game. It is even easier to play than the original board game, although the concept is the same. Think of it as a twist on solitaire, only you don't have to play this game alone.

    Definitely a cool game wrapped in a challenging package.

    A unique little game with super cute graphics. It is fun to play for a few minutes at a time, so if you're looking for something different, I'd give it a try.

    It has cute graphics and animation, and is definitely hard to put down. It is reasonably priced and, although there is a glitch in the control mechanism, it is a good buy.

    This is a fun game for war history buffs and fans of turn-based strategy games. The scenarios are challenging enough to keep you working hard to win each battle, but not so difficult that you don't want to fight.

    The graphics for this universal game are outstanding. The gameplay is simple. There isn't much to it, just swiping.

    The game is fairly pricey, but worth it if you are a diehard fan of strategy games.

    If you like physics-based games, this is one for the books. It is strange and interesting. The puzzles are not too difficult, but have just enough challenge to make things interesting. Pick this game up for a tongue-lashing good time.

    Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin is gorgeous, fluid, and easy-to-play but hard to master. It may be a bit repetitive, but it is still lots of fun.
