    If you're a TD fan or even if you've yet to try the genre, there's a lot to recommend in iBomber Defence Pacific. Although it's still early days, it gets my vote for Tower Defence of the year.

    While Outrun has yet to appear on iOS, Final Freeway 2R is more than enough compensation for the lack of Sega's racer.

    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.

    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.

    Anyone who has been patiently waiting for a Cannon Fodder style game to appear on iOS needs to snatch Tiny Troopers up straight away. If you fancy a new strategy based team shooter with a cute streak then this is the game for you.

    FarSight have done a fantastic job of bringing real pinball to iOS.

    Despite the genre already boasting some of the best iPhone games around, Kingdom Rush still manages to shine as one of the best Tower Defence games, even in this more compact form.

    Pumped:BMX is not a game for the feint hearted and will take a lot of practice before you find your feet, just like the real thing. But stick at it and there's an incredible amount of fun to be had from performing some impressive trick combinations.

    So, while the game remains simple to play, it has that perfect 'difficult to master' factor that will provide plenty of replay value.

    Rayman Jungle Run is a must have game, both for the simple but perfectly tuned gameplay and for the beautiful visuals.

    FIFA 13 turns out to be an incremental update from last year and yet, with all the tweeks and small changes, EA's game manages to become the world champion of the iOS football league yet again.

    The addition of the gems system from the console game makes for an extra incentive to win matches, though the energy bar system that limits your online play time unless you pay real money is a something I'm not happy with at all in a paid app.

    With Leaderboards and Acheivements thanks to Game Center, the original modes and music and just the infectious fast-paced gameplay it contains, Crazy Taxi is a fantastic port of a classic game on iOS.

    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.

    The charm of Magic Orbz is plain to see from the moment you first pick the game up and it's certainly a great addition to the hallowed halls of the best Breakout games. Easily recommended for any fan of the genre.

    Anomaly Korea is a must for any Tower Defence fan looking for something a little different and it's a great sequel for any fans of the first game.

    Pixel People is one of those titles that takes a well-worn idea and goes off on a completely different tangent with it. The charm and cheeky little pokes at life will make you burst into a smile more often than not and the game is sure to work its way under your skin, leaving you managing your new society into the small hours of the night.

    Tiny Troopers 2 may be a case of more of the same, only better, but this is no bad thing when it's based on such a great foundation. Fans of the first game and those new to the series who yern after then classic Cannon Fodder games should set their sights on this one.

    Badland is a joy to watch, listen to and play. At times the gameplay may feel as if it's dragging you along with little control, but a split second's tap can also make all the difference between life and death and the journey is certainly worthwhile.

    Aside from the awkward controls, LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes is a wonderful achievement on iOS, giving players a complete game experience that they can play anywhere.

    At first glance, Lara Croft's new outing may seem nothing like the Tomb Raider games of old, but it owes far more to Lara's past than you might think and ultimately, forgiving the odd slip with positioning, plays like one of her best games to date.

    It's quite an addictive little game that I can see myself going back to; trying to improve my scores.

    A clever and original game with a brilliantly cute character and hidden depth.

    Cardboard Castle is a charming puzzle adventure that is well worth experiencing, even if it does leave you scratching your head at times.

    When I compare it to the new Need For Speed Hot Pursuit or Real Racing 2 it feels lightweight and gimmicky, but there's certainly enough here to recommend to fans who prefer the thrills of arcade racing over more realistic racing games and I still had a lot of fun living as a boy racer.

    If you're not put off by a challenge, and there are some steep learning curves here, then Mad Skills Motocross is a great game to test your skills on. It feels original and keeps you coming back again and again for just one more challenge.

    Cover Orange is well built and fun, ensuring that you'll want to continue past the stage where most one-trick physics puzzles bore. Add in the heart melting animations and beautiful pastel graphics and you have a winning combination.

    With a great list of songs, more to buy on the store and a vastly better effort than the first game, Rockband Reloaded is well worth a purchase if you're in to your music games and fancy a portable version while you're away from your plastic guitar.

    If you're seeking out a fantastic fighting game with precise controls and extremely deep gameplay then maybe you'd be better off with Street Fighter IV for the iOS. However, if you're a MK fan and want some of the brutal fun on-the-go, well EA have given me a million reason to recommend this as a brilliant option.

    With a fair few races that get progressively harder and a good scoring system, Need For Speed Hot Pursuit is a great return to the good old days of the franchise and highly recommended for fans of arcade racing.
