    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.

    It is a great addition to the Angry Birds universe, giving you more of what you had before whilst feeling fresh enough to warrant the small expenditure. And the best part is this: There's not a bloody Jar Jar Binks in sight. Splendid.

    Delivers in spades. It reminds me of a more constrained Shadow of the Colossus, which is quite the compliment. For anyone who owns a 3rd or 4th generation iOS device this is an essential purchase.

    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.

    Crazy Horses doesn't seem all that original on first glance, but don't pass it off as just another line drawing game. The humour, chaotic action and great level design set it apart and make it a worthy addition to your iDevice.

    A tremendous accomplishment. It succeeds on every level, in fact the only significant complaint we can level at the game is that once the game is completed you can't go back and replay any specific level.

    I think this is easily the best football/soccer app you can get at the moment.

    Whether alone or with friends, Chu Chu Rocket retains the magic of the original and stamps its mark firmly on the iPhone puzzle scene.

    Galaxy On Fire 2 is a game that pushes the format further than ever before. Only the slight control issues and a few odd manoeuvres from the auto-pilot prevent this from becoming a classic.

    Despite the small number of tracks Reckless Racing is not only one of the best top down racers on the app store but arguably one of the best racers full stop.

    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.

    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.

    For a game that relies on stats, Game Dev Story oozes charm and character. You will care about your company and its hard working employees, even when they fail you. It's this winning formula that will see you playing in to the small hours and possibly even laying awake at night, wondering just how you can make that one special game every developer dreams about.

    It's a vast improvement over anything seen on the platform so far in the shooter genre. More importantly, it's an engrossing and enjoyable game.

    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.

    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.

    It's arguably as good as Angry Birds, though it's missing the cute cartoon story. I really do want to know more about Om Nom and I'm hoping the developers see fit to add a story in the next update. Ultimately, though, you need to get this game. It really is the best 59p you'll have spent this month.

    Assuming that the multi-player will come soon enough and being only swayed a little by the lack of modes, FIFA 11 is still the Football game of choice on iDevices. It sets the standard other football games must follow once again.

    A great little game which will entertain for some time.

    EA have managed to improve Tetris on the iPad by adding something completely new without breaking anything that already worked. It could have been a disaster, but somehow the game is now a far better companion to Apple's devices than it could ever have been in its old form.

    Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem ticks all the boxes then binds them together in a big web of gaming goodness. If you're a Spider-man fan or are just looking for a great iPhone action adventure then pick this up now.

    Mirror's Edge is a very enjoyable experience and one that you'll keep coming back to in order to beat your best times. With just a few additions it would be perfect, but as it stands the game is still recommended for fans of Canabalt and the original console game.

    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.

    Scoretable issues aside, Ski Safari is an excellent addition to the genre and offers up a lot of replay value. The simple control system and excellent characters make it easy to recommend to those looking for their next big endless runner title.

    With two different difficulty settings and Crystal support there's plenty of re-play value when you've finished the game and only the slightly dodgy dialogue and bad humour stands in the way of making this a classic app.

    Even in basic form, the game will appeal to younger fans but it's certainly best played with a portal at your side.

    It's hard to resist those cute little rotund aliens who just want to get home and so, despite its length, The Marbians makes up for the lack of game time on charm and great level design.

    Cross Fingers has a lot of potential where the strengths outweigh the flaws. It's not the prettiest game to look at and there are times that you will want to throw you iTouch against the wall with frustration; however, this just increases its playability!

    Despite the cost, though, Final Fantasy III is an impressive journey that successfully mixes old style RPGs with newer design and controls. For long term fans of the series and those who are curious about classic RPGs this is a must.
