    Amazing Spider-man is a surprisingly good attempt at bringing an open-world web-slinger game to iOS. While the game engine can't always handle the task without the occasional hiccup and controls aren't always responsive in the heat of battle, it still feels as if this is the game Spider-man fans have waited for.

    Even with its short run time, The Act is still easy to recommend as an excellent take on animated laserdisc games.

    Darkside has a lot of content and 3 game modes that offer several different ways to play. It's great for a quick dose of asteroid blasting and the mission mode provides a more structured take on the twin stick shooter.

    The one finger control method works perfectly within the simple yet crafty level design to provide a challenge that's easy to control but difficult to master. With bright imaginative graphics and unique gameplay Mr Dreamer plays like a dream.

    There are some clever ideas in this otherwise straightforward platform game that enable it to stand out among the crowd and the story adds another enjoyable element to Solarola, as well as pushing the player forward to find out what happens next. While it's not perfect, the level design and bright, beautiful graphics make this game worth checking out if you're a fan of platformers.

    For a game that simply involves throwing a paper plane as far as you can, there is plenty to do, many upgrades to buy and challenges that are going to require a bit of effort to beat.

    Balance in Adventure games is a difficult thing to get right and Edna and Harvey manages this for part of the game but falls flat just as it gets going. But it's worth persevering and solving these tricky puzzles to find out just where the game will take you next, which is where Edna and Harvey scores points.

    Dead Stop doesn't do anything really new, but it's a well designed and fun little Tower Defence game with a great vibe and it feels as if a lot of love has gone into its design, which makes it easy to recommend.

    I admit to being sceptical about a jumping game featuring Sonic, but aside from the odd annoying level in the story mode and a feeling that Sonic really shouldn't be travelling upwards, something I don't think I'll ever get used to, Sonic Jump is an enjoyable little gem that took me by surprise.

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

    Catch the Ark doesn't try to rock the boat of Endless Runner games, but it doesn't need to. The charm of its character and the fun gameplay means that it's another solid game from the Chillingo stable and a must for Endless Runner fans.

    Multiplayer is sadly lacking in Real Racing 3, replaced with a half-way house system that promises to allow you to race against the ghost cars of your friends, but really only seems to collect their lap times rather than their actual laps. It's better than nothing, but still feels like a missed opportunity.

    Strategy & Tactics: World War II seems like a bit of a throwback to more traditional tabletop wargames, but it does the job of creating an interesting and historically accurate skirmish well and should appeal to anyone with an interest in this point in history, as well as those with a passion for pure strategy titles.

    But there is still the element of hand holding and the annoying camera which both prevent the player from ever becoming too attached to our hero Jason.

    Dungeon Defenders: First Wave is not the game many were hoping for and may disappoint on first play, but give the game time and forgive it the cluttered menu and you have a decent original title that deserves a play through.

    This is a title that focuses primarily on the fun inherent in the concept of possessing enemies. Whilst it most likely won't be appearing in the top 25 any time soon, it certainly is not one to dismiss instantly. For your money, you will be getting a hearty slice of retro-styled enjoyment of the kind that is not particularly prevalent anymore.

    Vikings Can Fly isn't a long game by any means. The hardest part is always the start, where you find yourself with next-to-no help at all.

    For those who are looking for a challenge in a driving game and love the idea of big jumps and loops then this new version of Fumes Stunt Racer now comes highly recommended.

    Ultimately, Zombie Crisis 3D is like a B-Movie; it lacks substance and style in the game but makes up for it in sheer unadulterated zombie-killing fun.

    The lack of Multiplayer is disappointing, particularly in this day and age when Game Centre can take care of any match-making issues. This, coupled with the controls not quite living up to their potential, let the game down but MMA fans should still get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

    For the fan, Real Football 2011 gives with one hand and takes away with the other. It ends up being balanced in their favour thanks to game options, but only just. For the casual player the latest update is just as playable as last year's game but with improved graphics and controls. Whether you go for this or FIFA 11 depends on how important the game options are when compared to FIFA's more realistic looking game.

    The game plays well and there's fun to be had from spraying the enemy's blood across the floor in varying ways, but ultimately Hero of Sparta II feels slightly vacant, as if something was missing from the formula.

    So here's the thing; if you think you can cope with dodgy controls and annoying restarts and want to witness something of a minor miracle for gaming on the iPhone then Prince of Persia Warrior Within is worth downloading.

    For less than a couple of pounds you can indulge in your own Predator fantasies for a few hours. This, the satisfying kills and the detailed graphics save the game from being forgettable and make it worth downloading if you're a fan of the franchise.

    Shrek fans will lap this decent game licence up and probably forgive the odd control and camera issues in favour of the story and voice acting. Kids in particular will love this game, but for most of us older gamers the action will be over before the fat Ogre roars.

    A great game and a worthy addition to the growing number of fighters on the iPhone. It shows that 3D fighters are possible and it's a great homage to the Dragon himself that he finally gets a game which celebrates his life.

    Street Fighter IV on iPhone can still be considered a success, and Capcom really do deserve a medal for pulling it off. I thought it couldn't be done, and I'll happily admit I was wrong.

    Overall it is a good game. The production levels are high, and I like it as a 'simple idea done well'. I would love to have seen a bit more though; perhaps some more unlockables, different food items, secret bonuses or something.

    It's not perfect, as the title might suggest, but certainly provides a fun, if short, challenge.

    It's certainly one of the best looking sports games on iOS and well worth investing some time in. I only wish NaturalMotion would work on providing a full match version of the sport with proper team against team play.
