    The gameplay is challenging, there is a ton of content for the price, and replay value is high.

    The game looks fantastic, the sound effects are nice, and the gameplay itself is a fresh and challenging new take on the classic klondike solitaire formula.

    I highly recommend checking out Galactic Keep if you are a fan of challenging and lengthy tabletop RPG games with a sci-fi twist.

    The graphics are top-notch, the chiptunes are awesome, the controls are intuitive and optimized for the platform, and the gameplay itself is insanely challenging while being fun.

    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.

    If you just want a game that will help you kill some downtime, then make sure to give this one a try.

    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.

    While I’m not a huge horror movie fanatic, the game is still incredibly enjoyable. I love the graphics, the music is amazing, the dialogue for kill scenes is hilarious, the Gorepacks are fun to watch, and the puzzles themselves are challenging. The best thing about the game is the fact that there are no in-app purchases, so even though getting all killers and Gorepacks is expensive, it’s great that you can’t just buy your coins to get them before other people. It keeps players coming back for more gory horror movie fun while earning coins to get optional collectible content. And while I prefer to keep the game in R-mode, it’s nice that they included a less bloody PG-mode to keep even the squeamish satisfied.

    The game is packed with stunning visuals, and everything runs smoothly. The lack of music was a bit strange to me at first, but after reading the reason behind it, I completely understand. The lack of a soundtrack only adds to the experience, oddly enough. Sound effects were spot on and immersive. Controls are easy to learn and feel natural on a touch screen. I'm a big puzzle game fan, so I love the variety of puzzles in The Witness, and with over 500 to find and solve, you do get some bang for your buck.

    As a big fan of Rauers’ other two card games, I am in love with what Miracle Merchant has to offer. The game shows off the distinctive visual style of the developer, and the sound design is well done. The tutorial explains all of the basics to you in a simple-to-understand manner, but the gameplay itself is challenging and requires some thought. There’s a ton of possible combinations of potions to discover and serve, and the goals keep everything fresh. I’ve just started playing Miracle Merchant since it was released last night, but I’m having a hard time putting it down. It’s just that good. I highly recommend grabbing Miracle Merchant if you’re a fan of Card Crawl, Card Thief, or just want some unique solitaire-style card game fun on your iOS device.

    If you enjoyed other games by Devolver Digital, which includes the awesome Downwell, then you don’t want to miss out on Reigns.

    I recommend FRAMED 2 if you were a fan of the original game or just love a unique puzzle game with a storyline that follows the show, don’t tell technique.

    With its simple gameplay, engaging storyline, and neat visual style, WarGames is a blast to play.

    It's ultra simple with only one game mode, though there are leaderboards and achievements that add some depth.

    This is a great turn-based strategy game. The graphics are great and the gameplay is challenging, depending on your skills against other real-life players.

    I highly recommend checking out Piloteer if you’re a fan of Trebella’s work, or just enjoy hysterical rag-doll physics games.

    I recommend giving twofold inc. a try if you love a challenging puzzle game and are tired of the same old matching games out there.

    If you are familiar with Pokémon Snap, then you will know how Jurassic GO works, as the two are similar, but this title deals with dinosaurs, of course.

    The game has a beautiful aesthetic that is calming, the music and sounds are pure bliss, and the controls are intuitive and responsive, indicating that this was a game that was optimized for touch screens. The puzzles themselves start off easy enough, but then things gradually pick up and become intricate and challenging. It’s just a perfect treat for puzzle lovers. I highly recommend checking out Causality this week if you’re in the mood for a truly special puzzle game.

    I highly recommend picking up Oxenfree if you are a fan of supernatural themes and have not played the game before.

    Vignettes may appear simple on the surface, but the game is much deeper than that once you start, and it ends up being hard to stop. Plus, the interactions with some objects provide fun extras, such as rescuing cute cats, time travel, selfies on a mountain, and more. They’re not exactly obvious, but part of the fun is discovering all of these secrets for yourself.

    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.

    As a fan of word games, I’ve found TypeShift to be a delightful gem among the recent flood of big indie game titles on the App Store. The visuals are simple and clean, the sound effects are fun to hear, the haptic feedback is nice, and the game mechanic is different enough to stand out among the word game market.
