    The occasional 'scary' moments add some tense atmosphere, which the game really relies on. It's worth getting, as it will last a few hours.

    Just not as good as we'd expected it to be. Less than meets the eye, you might say.

    While other racers, or even a ghost car of your last lap, would improve the game, the thrill of building the best car and testing it out is enough to warrant a purchase.

    While you could berate Atari's game for being too basic, it's as much an asset as it is a criticism. Those looking for an update to the classic Asteroids will find much to admire in Asteroids: Gunner, especially with the agreeable freemium model in place.

    It's no GTA by any means, but Gameloft have still managed to build a city worth playing in, especially if you have the new hardware to experience it in its full glory.

    Whether you get a lot of joy from this game or not will really depend on two things; whether you love Peanuts and whether you are either patient enough to wait for new items or have the cash to spare to upgrade faster. Those who are already against freemium titles won't really be swayed by this game, but there is a lot of fun to be had for people who like the slower pace and love Snoopy.

    With more tracks,more variety and more reason to go back to earlier races, Retro Racing would be perfect, but as it stands the game is still a great little racer that will remind old timers like myself of the glory days of the Amiga.

    For those who love mini tasks, collecting missions and don't mind a more casual take on adventure games with little in the way of taxing puzzles, The Island: Castaway will happily entertain you for hours. Those gamers looking for something with a little more challenge may find this game lacking. That said, the initial game is free and it's worth visiting the island at least once.

    With 20 levels in each section and 5 sections to get through, there is plenty of fun to be had with Moon Active's game. Though it may be a bit short for the more accomplished gamer, Bitter Sam is still worth dangling some cash over the App Store for.

    Jazz: Trump's Journey is a high-class game that wouldn't look out of place on the PC or XBox Live Arcade. Whilst not quite rubbing shoulders with the giants, it can still hold its head up high amongst its contemporaries.

    A rather mixed bag. When it works well it's an impressive game that far outdoes any previous FPS Gameloft have put out, but there are too many bugs and issues still around to make it a consistently good experience.

    While Tango Chase isn't the most graphically impressive title out there, it keeps things colourful and fun and will certainly appeal to its target audience, the younger age ranges. As a free game (or 69p with no ads) Herotopia's game certainly does the monkey business and provides a fun title with a cute hero.

    Rock(s) Rider has it's fair share of faults, mostly in setting levels which feel just the wrong side of unfair and having a camera which is zoomed in a little close. As with every other game in this genre, the physics isn't as good as it is in Redlynx's title by a long shot, the bike is often far too light to seem realistic.

    Human Defence's premise, great cartoon graphics and educational aspect sets it apart from other Tower Defence games and creates something which is unique and fun at the same time. Only the lack of detail on the viruses themselves dampens the fun.

    Despite the control issues and a few odd choices, AXL: Full Boost is still a good racer that should satisfy most cravings for a Wipeout clone on iOS.

    Overall, The Dark Knight Rises overcomes a few minor issues and provides fans with something worthy of the Batman name in a suitably shadowy Gotham playground.

    It's not going to win any prizes for in-depth gameplay, but Knights of the Round Cable is a lot of fun and up there with some of the best endless games out there. If you're a score attack fan then it's well worth checking out.

    The level design encourages planning and more than just trial and error, the physics hit the spot and the graphics are well designed, but for anyone with an aversion for the hard sell within a game Jumpster doesn't do itself any favours. Retweet this!

    Only the slightly unreal feel of the physics themselves stand in the way of making this a perfect addition to the crop of physics puzzlers jostling for space on the App Store. It's still an enjoyable little game that's well worth picking up if you're interested by the idea of sticking pinball and physics puzzles together.

    Yes there are a couple of niggles but for the most part Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 is still very much the same, albeit cut down, game I fell in love with back in the day.

    If you're a big fan of score attack arcade games with big colourful graphics then Afterburner is your game. If you're looking for something a little deeper then look elsewhere.

    Sonic Dash is certainly a looker and it can move like lightning on the right hardware, but IAPs do hurt the experience a little for a paid app. Still, it can sit proudly as one of the top Endless Runners on the App Store, none-the-less.

    House of the Dead: Overkill - the Lost Reels is short but instantly playable. It's a very cut down version of a much loved game and doesn't offer much in the way of longevity, but with some clever controls and replayability thanks to the focus on score attack it's still worth a look for fans of lightgun games.

    While Volcano Escape has flaws, it's still a simple jumping game at heart and the challenge of beating high scores may make it worth going back to. It's one of the best looking games of its type, just not the best in terms of gameplay.

    The game leaves you with a feeling of mild disappointment and ultimately, the apathy felt throughout almost every aspect is what lets it down.

    Ultimately, whether you enjoy this App will depend on how thick your rose tinted glasses are and whether you can put up with some changes in control system to take the touch screen into account or stomach the price point for some of the less technical games.

    It's fair to say those looking for the realistic game will want good physics and a challenge, the very things missing from Real Golf.. It may look the part when compared to Tiger Woods, but it just can't match the gameplay.

    With a multiplayer, bike customisation and a rethink of the boost system I could see Moto GP being a top racing title. As it stands it's still a fun arcade game for Moto GP fans, but offers little challenge or replay value once completed.

    If you're a fan of the sport, can forgive a few control issues and don't mind that there are only basic defensive moves then NFL 2011 could be for you, but with Madden just around the corner it might find itself knocked off the top spot pretty soon.

    It's average, its standard, its borderline moderate. It's kind of a generic medium regular.
