    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.

    If you are a fan of puzzle games, specifically these type of trapped room games, you will likely get quite a bit of enjoyment out of Edna and Harvey. Just make sure you go into it with a patient attitude and a desire to explore every aspect of the game, because that is definitely what is asked of players. This is not a game for those of you who are easily frustrated.

    The game is all about reflexes and coordination, so you better think fast and make sure that Sugar Kid gets the least amount of harm done to him. I love the game because it's a real challenge, features delightfully fresh visuals, enchanting music, and how can you resist such unconventional characters? I'll definitely be cheering for Sugar Kid.

    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.

    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.

    The graphics and music are also excellent, and really hit home for someone that grew up with the retro classics.

    This game is a lot of fun. The graphics are cute and there are plenty of power ups to increase your point score. Stars are easily collected and, even though you can buy them through in-app purchases it is not necessary at all.

    Seriously, give this game a try and blast the limbs off of the undead.

    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.

    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.

    In a word, the graphics are stunning. Everything from the cutscenes to the details of the background buildings blurs the line between fantasy and reality that you just about forget you're playing a game.

    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.

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

    This revamp of the classic is worth the download and even diehard fans of retro gaming will be pleasantly surprised by how fun this game is. If you like gallery shooters, you'll love Outlaw.

    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.

    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.

    The repetitiveness of this game becomes apparent all too quickly. The process goes from upgrading in the garage, to zipping through the level, and turning zombies into red smears. Rinse and repeat.

    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.

    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.

    It may be cute, but the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.

    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.

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

    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.

    While I was not a fan of the freemium mechanic, you can't beat an app that's free to play. Just keep in mind that you may only be able to play this game once every few hours unless you want to spend the cash to play more often.

    The thing I love about this game, aside from the awesome vintage graphics and soundtrack, is the fact that there are no in-app purchases to be found. The game is just purely a beat-em-up with responsive controls and is a joy to play.

    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 game is not going to please serious pinball players. It is more like a kids version of the tabletop game.

    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.

    Overall, this game is a lot of fun for fans of zombie themed first-person shooter games. Unfortunately, it is so difficult that you get frustrated and wish for a med pack to help you survive, which you can only really get by paying real cash for.

    Take The Act for what it's worth, and you will have a product that is worth your time and money.
