    I highly recommend checking out Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions if you’re a dual-stick shooter fan or just enjoy the Geometry Wars games. Even if you have this title on a console or your computer, it’s worth buying it again just to have it on-the-go.

    I've been quite addicted to Punch Quest, because it's insanely fun and challenging. I mean, what is better than punching everything in the face, Chuck Norris style? Nothing, that's what.

    The game looks gorgeous, the music is delightful, and the controls are intuitive for the platform. While it can be a challenge, it is still a great way to de-stress since you aren’t pressured with time or a limited number of trees.

    Mikey Shorts is a game that truly has something for everyone. Want to have fun? Story mode. Looking for a serious challenge? Challenge mode. Mikey Shorts is well worth its $0.99 download price.

    The game just looks exquisite, the atmospheric music pulls you into the mansion, controls are easy to understand, and the gameplay is challenging and engaging.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The controls feel natural and the responsiveness is always welcome, especially since you have to be pretty precise in this game to begin with. Frogmind has done it again with this surprise sequel.

    Overall, the game is fast-paced, challenging, and there is enough action to keep you entertained for a long time.

    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.

    It is unbelievable that a game this complex costs only $0.99. It is worth at least three times that much. If you like adventure games mixed with arcade games, then you won't want to miss this.

    All in all, if you're a tower defense fan, you probably don't need me to tell you to pick up this game. It's everything that you would expect from a sequel to one of the most popular iOS tower defense games, and if you don't mind that it is iPhone only, it's a must download.
    • 88 Metascore

    The minimal design is aesthetically pleasing, the music and sounds are fun, and the gameplay is rather challenging. The physics engine is pretty realistic as well, so there’s no funny business here.

    I still recommend giving Cut the Rope: Magic a try, but beware of the underhanded tactics that the developers have gone through to try and get even more money from you. If you’re forced to use a hint, just force quit and restart — that’s what I did.

    SPL-T does not look like much, but it is a great addition for puzzle game fans. Don’t be fooled by the lo-fi graphics — SPL-T is challenging and definitely something different in terms of puzzle fare.

    If you're in the mood for a fantastic falling blocks puzzle game, then I highly recommend you drop everything that you're doing right now and buy Dream of Pixels. In fact, if you can only get one game this week, make it this one. You won't regret it.

    With Super Mole Escape, think of Jetpack Joyride, except it is vertical rather than horizontal. This alone makes the game feel refreshing and new, already worthy of being in your collection.

    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    A refreshing take on the zombie game that while simple, and perhaps without longevity, is full of immersive atmosphere.
    • 83 Metascore

    If you’re a fan of action-packed dungeon crawlers that are inspired by roguelikes but without the permanent-death-so-you-start-over-from-square-one element, then Heroes of Loot 2 is the perfect match up for you.

    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.

    Lili is truly a one-of-a-kind game. It's one of those titles that you just have to have, and though it's on the higher end of iOS game pricing at $4.99, it's well worth the cost. If you only buy one game this week, make it Lili.

    Warp Shift by FISHLABS is a gorgeous puzzle game that forces you to think outside the box, at least just a little bit. If you’re a fan of puzzles, then this one is definitely a must-have in your game collection.

    You will feel the urge to beat your rival quite often, so you end up replaying levels until you can obtain all of the apples and maybe beat your previous score. The routes are always a challenge, and I assure you that there will be multiple attempts involved. I love a good trial, and Granny Smith provides just that.

    The fast-paced action and cartoony graphics make this game a winner. But what else would you expect from Chillingo?
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    • 90 Critic Score
    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).

    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Although the game is somewhat easy to beat, it is very entertaining.
