    As with the iPad version, Ant Raid on the iPhone feels like it was made with a lot of love and attention. The cartoon driven story and mix of strategy and tapping make this a unique title and a worthy addition to the RTS genre. The game seems to have only improved with age.

    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.

    Performance issues aside, though, Back To The Future Episode 5 HD is a great conclusion to what has been a wonderfully written and well acted adventure and a fitting tribute to the film trilogy.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This sequel has taken a simple game and turned it into something that matches the best the App Store has to offer. It may be a racing game that doesn't have any actual driving, but it beats a lot of other traditional racers hands down.

    If you love physics puzzlers, especially cute looking ones with a lot of attitude, Happy Hills is a must. The free App gives you plenty of levels to get your blockbusting teeth into before resorting to the very reasonable in-app purchase for the rest.

    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.

    Despite the odd control issue and a slight case of repetition, Dark Meadow is a fantastic horror mystery that straddles point-and-click adventures and the combat style Role Playing dynamics of Infinity Blade. If you're a Horror fan with an iPad or iPhone then you should sign up for your stay in the Dark Meadow hospital straight away.

    While the perfectly balanced scoring system encourages replays, it's really the presentation, effort and generally cute 60's vibe that makes Whale Trail stand out, alongside that instantly memorable soundtrack from Gruff Rhys. Whale Trail is a refreshing blast of multicoloured fun that will brighten up even the darkest day.

    Galaxy on Fire 2 HD is one step closer to a full console quality game on your iOS device and a title any new iPhone 4S owner should have in their collection.

    Bike Baron is a game that provides fun and frustration in equal measure, but balances these at just the right level to perfectly hit that 'one more go' approach. Fans of Trials style games shouldn't hesitate to pick this one up.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    While Seal Force borrows unashamedly from other games, it earns its own identity by providing a unique mix of gameplay styles coupled with a stylish look and sound that should earn it a place in your collection. Roll on the Seal Force TV show.

    Grand Theft Auto 3 is not, then, an old game released for the sake of an anniversary, it is a celebration of a true classic and a great iOS game in its own right.

    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.

    Home Sheep Home 2 takes all the parts that were good from the first game and builds on them to create an excellent puzzle game, this time providing a much more rounded package. Even without the star attraction from Aardman Animations the game would be easy to recommend to puzzle fans.

    Run Roo Run takes a simple concept and creates a game full of depth, style and character. It's a perfect example of what can be achieved with a bit of imagination and a one touch control system.

    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.

    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.

    The quality feel to the app and its addictive nature makes it an easy recommendation for anyone who likes puzzle games.

    It's significantly more difficult than Resurrection to gain a good score and relies on a good knowledge of enemy patterns and levels. This might put some newer gamers off and anyone new to the series would probably be better of starting with the other game, but for Bullet Hell veterans, Blissful Death might be just the challenge they need.

    With an eye for quality visuals and some great level design, Housemarque has managed to produce an outstanding game in a crowded genre. Furmins is perfectly balanced and yet challenging enough to keep puzzle fans happy.

    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.

    A great ambassador for the new iPad, but even if you only own an iPhone 4 or an iPad 2 it's still well worth a purchase. It's by far the best aerial combat game on iOS and should provide plenty of longevity thanks to the myriad of modes on offer once the campaign has been completed.

    There has always been a reason that Angry Birds is THE mobile game, and that is because it does what it does extremely well indeed. My own personal iPhone has a folder for "Essentials" on the first page, and it is in to this very folder that I have put Angry Birds Space.

    While seasoned players may find that Burnout Crash! is a little lighter on content than they would like, the game is certainly a blast while it lasts and if you're up against friends on Origin the Autolog can get very competitive.
