    Pigs in Trees is a great title that takes the path drawing formula of Flight Control and adds its own unique spin on the game. It's a good job pigs can fly after all.

    Destructopus is a crazy concept that does a decent job at entertaining the masses with chaos and fire. What it doesn't do is keep the fire going, with many features left to be desired and the music annoying the tentacles out of me.

    Ultimately, Sprinkle succeeds in bringing something new to the table with the excellent water physics and the cute characters. If you've completed World of Goo and fancy another top class liquid based physics game, grab a copy of Sprinkle from the App Store and you won't be disappointed.

    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.

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

    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.

    Overall, it's an app that you should consider. It's very much the same of what we've seen before, but in a sense it's something fresh. It's old goods served on a silver platter in that respect. When described in its most basic form, a platformer where you run around picking up bits of scrap with the ability to defy gravity, it doesn't sound much of a treat.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Prince of Persia Classic is a game that has stood the test of time thanks to the fantastic upgrade to the graphics and a thoughtful control layout. If you've never played the original, you owe it to yourself and to gaming history to check this out.

    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.

    With such old-school sensibilities grafted onto such contemporary presentation, Boy Loves Girl can bring entertainment to both young and old, offering equal amounts of cheer and challenge. You will have to go far to find a game as pleasing, but why bother when this one is available?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Overcomes the perils of aged graphics and gameplay because the more interesting elements help to keep it fresh and unique. It still remains an excellent game and one that is well worth playing through or, if you played it the first time, revisiting.

    Shark Dash is a bit of a surprise from Gameloft. It has a nice, balanced skill level, bright and colourful graphics and is fun to play, all wrapped in a game that isn't part of the new freemium model. It certainly gives you something to get your teeth into.

    Shaun The Sheep: Fleece Lightning adds another quality game to the woolly wonder's line up and another solid title for Chillingo.

    Scoretable issues aside, Ski Safari is an excellent addition to the genre and offers up a lot of replay value. The simple control system and excellent characters make it easy to recommend to those looking for their next big endless runner title.

    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.

    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.

    Asphalt 7 Heat is a pretty full package that, while not being a major overhaul of the series, does enough to warrant a purchase by fans. It's certainly one of the best looking games on the App Store and you can't fault it for doing pretty much what it sets out to do; being a fast, no nonsense arcade racer.

    Babel Rising shows that sometimes bigger isn't better in that it works far better on a mobile platform than it does on consoles. It can still get a bit repetitive at times, but when 5 minutes of smiting can calm the nerves, it's worth the sacrifice.

    With a great art style which makes everything look like techno Hello Kitty meets the J-pop Youtube generation and a some trippy disco beats to play along to, Disco Kitten is a blast of fun that will keep you coming back for more. There's certainly nothing else like it on the App Store.
