    I highly recommend checking out Shooting Stars if you are looking for a downright insane game, or just love roguelikes and bullet hell arcade games.

    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.

    The game is beautiful, simple, and incredibly challenging.

    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.

    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.
