    Cannon Cat's bright and humorous nature shines through and makes it easy to recommend to both platform lovers and those with a penchant for physics based games. The fact that it's both free and universal make it a must have.

    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.

    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.

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

    The best Sims game on iOS, particularly if you're playing on iPad. It's just as addictive as the other good freemium titles out there (Tiny Towers, Smurfs Village) even if it does take a bit of grinding to get anywhere.

    Smash Cops should be given praise for trying something new in its control system and daring to be different with the camera angle.

    While Woody Woodpecker does have its flaws, there's no doubt that this is a fun game that is well worth the asking price. It won't last forever, unless Chillingo decide to support it with further levels, but it's certainly entertaining while it lasts and with its colourful cast of characters, thanks to an interesting licence, it's a great little take on the Tiny Wings idea.

    he graphics are sublime on the whole and the app will likely join the ranks of Real Racing and 2XL Supercross in terms of iPhone games you whip out to show your friends just how capabale the iPhone is.

    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 it's not really original or outstanding, Solar Warfare is a pretty decent space shooter that tends to stick more to the land than the sky, but does a pretty good job with it.

    Despite these faults, it's hard not to be impressed by Shadowgun. The game is visually stunning and fun to play. It's certainly the best 3rd Person Shooter on iOS and paves the way for further expansion of the iOS shooter genre.

    Die hard CAVE fans will have no doubt already picked the game up as soon as they saw it arrive on the App Store. For anyone else interested in horizontal shooters with huge boss characters and cute, anime style Angels, Deathsmiles is Bullet Hell from heaven.

    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.

    Graphically, Ice Age Village is one of the better looking games of its ilk with lots of animated characters and easily placed items. Pathways could do with a better system for placing them down, though and there is the odd issue with scrolling around bigger environments when placing a house. For the most part, though, the game certainly feels like it fits with the movie series and the chunky, colourful graphics do appeal to younger players.

    It is a simpl[e] but effective little game that delivers as just a 2D shooter, whilst having just enough depth to keep it interesting over a period of time. For what you are paying I would recommend this game highly.

    This is a wicked little game that will delight and annoy, and then delight you again. It is definitely one of those games I will keep on my iPod for a good while yet.

    Dark Incursion is a great game but it is a little short, though what's there is fun to play. The controls work well which is a massive testament to a game of this sort, a lot of the run and gun style games fall flat on their faces because the controls are too complicated or just don't work.

    If you're a fan of the series or of fighting games in general and can live with the lack of Multiplayer for now, then SoulCalibur is still worth the asking price. If Namco Bandai add Multiplayer, expect the score to shoot up to 10.

    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.

    Sticky Sheep is a great physics game with some unique ideas and a fun arcade mode that I'd love to see expanded on. Another top class addition to the Chillingo line up.

    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.

    The playfield itself is, in fact, the real key to how this is a new direction for the series. In many ways, it defines the play experience.

    While 100 Greatest Hits may not have every classic game on offer (I still yearn for Cosmic Kanga, my first Spectrum game), it certainly contains more than enough memories to allow gamers to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ZX Spectrum with their favourite iDevice.

    Even without multiplayer, though, Hunters 2 is still one of the best strategy titles on the App Store and improves on the original game without changing those parts that made the first game so good.

    With 100 levels and a three star system that provides some level of replay to the game, SpongeBob's Super Bouncy Fun Time is a great addition to both the App Store and Nickelodeon's app catalogue.

    While Smurfs' Village isn't a game for everyone and involves a fair amount of patience, if you're a Smurfs fan or fond of games such as Farmville then you should really check it out. Be warned, though. Once you get into the game, it can be pretty addictive.

    Sprinkle Jr could have been a disaster, but removing the hazzards has actually made it a very enjoyable game that young players can really get a lot out of. With a fantastic physics engine, together with the great standard of graphics and audio, Mediocre has managed to create a bright and colourful playground for children.

    This Could Hurt is far from a complicated game, but it doesn't need to be. It shows what can be achieved by simplifying a control method and concentrating on intelligent level design and gameplay instead.

    As a puzzler, in its rawest sense, the game is brilliant. It's simple but oh so bloody difficult.

    Tapper World Tour takes the winning formula of the arcade game, adds a few new twists and wraps it in a bunch of great visuals. Despite it still have a fairly repetitive nature, there is enough variety in the game to keep you coming back for more.
