    I highly recommend checking out Shadow Bug if you’re a fan of action-packed puzzle platformers.

    It’s a nice nostalgic throwback for me personally, and the visuals look great and the music is fun. The dialogue has been giving me a ton of laughs because of how corny it can be, and the controls are great for touch screen devices.

    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.

    Despite less-than-stellar controls, I recommend this game to anyone that is a fan of RPGs or classic arcade games. This is basically the Puzzle Quest version of Breakout/Arkanoid, and it's fantastic.

    The number of different control options seems to be a blessing and a curse.

    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.

    Everything from the central character being a lich to the obviously similar graphics pays homage to Warcraft.

    Like other Chillingo titles, such as Electric Tentacle and Cosmic Bump, Snail Bob features charming visuals and a fitting folk soundtrack. Combined with the fun and challenging puzzle solving, I'd say that this game is suitable for people of all ages.

    I had been playing Brickies a bit over the extended weekend, and while I love the idea, it needs more polish before I can fully recommend it.

    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.

    If you are a fan of other Crescent Moon titles like The Deer God and Almightree: The Last Dreamer, or just enjoy Zelda games, then you’ll get a kick out of Legend of the Skyfish.

    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.

    The game has a lot of replay value with the amount of content, and always having a fresh new experience is satisfying. As someone who grew up with classic games, I love the vintage pixel art style, and the chiptunes are amazing. Controls are simple and easy to learn, and the game is fairly challenging but still accessible to everyone. It’s definitely a game to have if you’re a roguelike RPG fan.

    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 giving Red’s Kingdom a try if you’re looking for a great little action adventure puzzle game for your iOS device.

    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.

    The game is a fantastic follow-up to the original, which I adored. The visuals make the game look and feel like genuine origami, the sound is amazing, the puzzles are challenging enough without being too overwhelming, and the wide variety of included levels as well as daily challenges and user-made stages keeps everything fresh and interesting, even if you beat the main game. This is another fantastic puzzle game from State of Play Games that I will be keeping on my device for some time.

    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.
