    The minimal graphics are aesthetically pleasing, the music is soothing, controls are intuitive, and the puzzles can be challenging.

    I recommend giving Abzorb a try if you’re in the mood for a simple pick-up-and-play arcade game that tests your speed and reflexes.

    The fast-paced action and cartoony graphics make this game a winner. But what else would you expect from Chillingo?

    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.

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

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

    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.

    I found the game to be a real challenge, which seems hard to find these days. For $2, you'll be getting a retro game that you probably won't be able to beat too quickly (unless you're some kind of pro).

    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.

    Although the game is somewhat easy to beat, it is very entertaining.

    It’s like a Fruit Ninja but with a much more serious tone and theme.

    I highly recommend checking out To-Fu Fury if you’re a fan of the other To-Fu games or just like a challenging puzzle-platformer. This is also a fantastic title for kids as well, making it an excellent choice of a family friendly title.

    This would be a fantastic game if it had better controls.

    The game starts out too easily, but the difficulty does ramp up. You're also able to choose from three difficulty levels if you find that it's too simple for you.

    The visuals are stunning, the funky disco music adds charm and personality to the game, and the controls are easy to learn (but difficult to master). The unique gameplay concept also makes this title stand out above the rest of the competition.

    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.

    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.

    There's a lot of fun to be had in the game without spending any money, since you can find bux floating around and you'll earn some with every level.

    If you're a fan of old-school Final Fantasy games, then you definitely won't want to miss Dimensions.

    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.

    I highly recommend checking out Futurama: Game of Drones if you’re a fan of matching puzzles and love Futurama and need your fix.

    The game is deceptively simple, but really makes you think on your feet.

    This may be a casual game, but for skateboard fans it is so realistic it is almost as fun as the real thing. The best part is that you don't leave the skate park with bruises and road rash.

    I’m in love with the beautiful visual style, the music, and the challenging gameplay that offers much more than your typical infinite runner. The controls are intuitive and responsive for touch screens, which I am happy to see.

    I recommend checking out Peter Panic if you like Broadway musicals or just like arcade mini-games.

    If you enjoyed classic games like Casey’s Contraptions and Amazing Alex, then you will love what Perchang brings to the modern world of contraption-based puzzles.

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

    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.

    If you're a fan of both Sonic games and jumping style games I'd recommend this one, but otherwise, save your pennies for something original.
