    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    With a harder (some may say more unfair) difficulty level and some interesting new ideas, Spider Jack succeeds in being more than just another clone of a popular game. If you're after a challenge and you can forgive some of the design flaws, the game is well worth the entry fee.

    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.

    Puzzle Agent 2 still has issues. Puzzles aren't balanced well enough and often arrive at the detriment of the story. Taken as a whole, though, I enjoyed my stay in Scoggins for a second time and fans of the first game won't be disappointed with this sequel either.

    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.

    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.

    In a genre that's held hostage by insipid mechanics and decaying conventions, Mobile Pie have created a game that feels fresh, but at the same time familiar in all the right places.

    It's more of the same but the story raises it above the previous episodes.

    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.

    Pastry Panic doesn't try to do anything overly complicated and revels in its own simplicity. You will too as you frantically try to shove as many cakes in to your face as possible in a limited time.

    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.

    Sonic 4 Episode 1 is a strange combination of new and old, some of it works and some doesn't but as a package it still comes together as a more than decent Sonic game that will delight both old fans and newcomers.

    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.

    If I take my Batman fanboy hat (with pointy ears) off for a moment and look at the game without thinking about the franchise, its main faults are quite clear; the combat system is basic, especially compared to Infinity Blade, and the length of the game is pretty short, but even without the Dark Knight's involvement, the game would be easy to recommend.

    You will find this game enjoyable if you are a fan of Two Worlds or you have never played this type of genre. If you have played tower defence games before, you may be disappointed to see another version hit the App Store.

    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.

    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.

    Without the freemium aspect It would be easy to award Let's Golf 3 with a great score, it's a solid game that improves on previous titles. With it, the game feels as if those gophers from the advert have popped up and made holes all over the golf course; it ruins the game.

    Danger Alliance: Battles is a fun strategy game which makes its own mark thanks to the stand-out cartoon graphics style and great AI.

    While One Epic Game isn't quite as bold as the title might like to think, it's does a good job of standing out as one of the better Endless Runners. The art and music, along with the (sometimes questionable) comedy make it worth considering if you're a fan of the genre.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Overall, the scope of Atari's Greatest Hits is amazing. It's certainly the best emulator on the App Store for content and presentation. If there were more control options or a modified version for the 2600 games then the package would be perfect.
