    I'm a big Marvel fan, but I am really disappointed with Avengers Initiative. Marvel had a great opportunity here, but really screwed it up.

    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.

    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.

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

    My only complaint is that it is a bit short, but that is easily overlooked when you consider its low price point ($4.99) and its innovative graphic style.

    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.

    Flight has easily become my favorite game this week, and maybe one of the best casual games that has been released so far this year.

    The visuals are beautiful, the soundtrack is wonderful, and the gameplay is challenging, fun, and quite addictive. It's also great to see some new life in a classic game.

    This is a fantastic addition to the endless runner genre. The graphics are smooth and bright, the design is impeccable and the plot development is clever.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Even though you see all of the enemies from your vantage point, you still can't help but feel that another one is going to pop out and surprise you. That, in combination with the odd visuals, make this quite the trippy game.

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

    Amazing Alex is indeed amazing, and should appeal to any puzzle fan or anyone that likes games that make you think. Get ready to spend hours on your iPhone or iPad with this one.

    I definitely enjoyed Unstoppable Fist, with its fun mix of retro graphics, rocking chiptunes, simple gameplay, and an addictive objective: be unstoppable. And how can you resist a chance to be a character that looks like Brock Samson from "The Venture Bros."?

    An excellent take on catapult-style gameplay. While the 3-D twist might seem daunting or alienating to fans of the 2-D style, it's safe to say that the gameplay is just as engaging as ever.

    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.

    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.

    As I played the game on my iPhone, it can be a bit hard to see where you're going if your finger is in the way all the time.

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

    So far, I'm finding Motley Blocks to be a blast to play, even though the "account required" part is a bit annoying.

    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 graphics are crisp and look great on Retina devices, the music and sound effects are charming and humorous, and the gameplay is fun and addictive.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
