    I cannot recommend Tiny Heroes enough, its brilliant art work and gameplay is supreme in the tower defence genre. The only thing missing is a sound track, but it's odd that while playing this superb game won't miss a sound track at all.

    Although there are a plethora of top down racers on the App Store right now, I'd stick my neck out and say that Reckless Racing 2 is the best one out there, hands down, and will be for some time to come. Pixelbite have really nailed it with this one.

    Bug Princess is another top class shoot-em-up from Cave that doesn't disappoint. It might not have quite the same depth in scoring as some of the later coin-ops and there are no extra modes to speak of, but it certainly hits the Bullet Hell spot.

    Back To The Future Episode 2 is an essential purchase for fans of the movies and, of course, the first episode. It has the same strengths and, particularly for first generation iPad owners, the same weaknesses too.

    Despite the genre already boasting some of the best iPhone games around, Kingdom Rush still manages to shine as one of the best Tower Defence games, even in this more compact form.

    Small niggles aside, though, Chillingo have yet another hit on their hands. Swing the Bat has just the right balance of endless swinging and achievement collecting to create an addictive little game that keeps you swinging on back for more.

    With Leaderboards and Acheivements thanks to Game Center, the original modes and music and just the infectious fast-paced gameplay it contains, Crazy Taxi is a fantastic port of a classic game on iOS.

    Badland is a joy to watch, listen to and play. At times the gameplay may feel as if it's dragging you along with little control, but a split second's tap can also make all the difference between life and death and the journey is certainly worthwhile.

    Shift 2 Unleashed is another polished title from EA and sits at the top end of the racing genre on iOS. Sim fans and arcade racers alike with both get a lot of joy from racing around the many tracks on offer and the upgrade system is impressive.

    The music is amazing in creating an atmosphere for the game, the pixel graphics add a unique artistic level of flair, both simple and complex at the same time, and the experience as a whole is one that every iPad owner should try for themselves.

    For a game which is seemingly so simple in design, Jetpack Joyride is a rare treat. It's lovingly put together and charming to boot. The collectable Stash, Missions and the nature of the game itself all come together to make this an easy recommendation for game of the week, if not the month.

    The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is a pretty unique game that manages to both capture the spirit of the movie and provide a fun experience for gamers. What could have easily been another movie cash-in has turned out to be one of Gameloft's best games yet.

    Pudding Panic seems to have created a genre that has never been seen before on the App Store. Whilst being an action packed cartoon thriller, it is also a relaxing puzzler that doesn't demand too much from the gamer. A simple concept with appropriate presentation makes this a top App.

    So, while the game remains simple to play, it has that perfect 'difficult to master' factor that will provide plenty of replay value.

    Rayman Jungle Run is a must have game, both for the simple but perfectly tuned gameplay and for the beautiful visuals.

    Pixel People is one of those titles that takes a well-worn idea and goes off on a completely different tangent with it. The charm and cheeky little pokes at life will make you burst into a smile more often than not and the game is sure to work its way under your skin, leaving you managing your new society into the small hours of the night.

    If you're a fan of the series or just fancy a great Basketball game with a sense of humour, then NBA Jam scores a 3 pointer. It's Boomshakalakin'.

    It all adds up to one hectic puzzle game that requires some expert timing in later levels in order to keep all the flames burning.

    The fact that this is a completely original story which happens to tie in to the second game helps to make it feel far more than just a rehash of a console game on the iPhone. Thanks to the graphical flare, a fantastic control scheme and atmospheric sound, the sum of Ironmonkey's efforts come together to create a stand-out survival horror experience second to none on iOS.

    While the lack of multiplayer is disappointing, FIFA 12 is still an impressive game in its own right. The updates from last year and attention to detail make this THE Football game on iOS.

    This game is perfect to play in either small parts on a journey or for extended amounts of time at home. The large amount of levels, achievements to collect and bonus items to find, means that you're sure to be playing this for a while, and with more levels promised soon this game is like an investment as it just keeps giving more content.

    Another instant hit from Firemint, who seem to be able to do no wrong. If you enjoy a good line drawing game then I recommend that you pick this up straight away.

    N.O.V.A. 2 is big, brash and mighty impressive. If you're looking for the ultimate First Person Shooter on iOS you don't need to look any further. It's a game that should be in every serious gamer's collection.

    But as a self confessed Back To The Future fan, this episode has been a great ride through some slightly unfamiliar territory. The ending might leave you wanting Episode 4 in a hurry, however. As usual, it's a must for ipad owning fans of the movies.

    The fun, challenge, and aesthetics are extremely pleasing. There is something that always feels so right about shooters set in space, and this one is no exception.

    With a recently added multiplayer mode that pits you against a friend in one of five worlds, killing bugs for gems, which then can be used to unleash a swarm of bugs against your enemy and Game Center support to compare scores and achievements, Mushihimesama Bug Panic has everything you need to appease your shooter needs and is different enough from the other twin stick shooters out there to warrant getting stuck in to the bug squashing action.

    With 44 levels, tons to do and some great graphics, this is so much more than a cheap port of a console game. LEGO Harry Potter is a great gaming experience and well worth your money.

    Aside from the awkward controls, LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes is a wonderful achievement on iOS, giving players a complete game experience that they can play anywhere.

    Ultimately, though, Sonic CD is about as perfect a Sonic port as any fan could have hoped for. If you're looking for a Sonic experience on your iPhone then this is does the job in style.

    Par Out Golf is the perfect answer to creating a golf game with a difference. It manages to mix genres while being easily accessible to everyone and containing enough of a challenge for long term gamers at the same time.
