    Cloud Spin could have soared, but instead it falls flat with rudimentary gameplay, imprecise controls, and an overall waste of potential making it one to fly past.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Any Landing crashes on to the App Store landing strip making it one to steer clear of.

    Daddy Was A Thief ($1.99, Universal) is a highly polished change of pace that is fun at first, but that doesn’t last very long leaving it worth skipping.

    Bomboras Forever is promising at the outset, but delivers a short flight of entertainment.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Looney Tunes Dash! isn’t particularly bad, but it’s unremarkable with nothing that’s specifically good, making it one to skip as it stumbles on the gameplay execution.

    Galcon 2 has a great pedigree, but just doesn’t bring much new beyond an online system that isn’t catered to multiple skill levels making it sadly one to skip.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Bladeslinger looks so promising, but never taps into its potential. It’s one of the best looking games in the App Store, but the gameplay is rudimentary at best with other restrictions sprinkled in, sadly making it one to skip.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Help My Fly doesn’t fly with the best brain teasing puzzle games in the App Store, and instead relies too heavily on a bland familiar mechanic.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Hex:99 is well put together for a burst of short term fun, but it just falls into all of the other endless games making it worth considering depending on how much you still enjoy the genre.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Gravity Guy 2 ($0.99, Universal) offers less than the original, and subpar gameplay to boot making it one to just run right past. As the old saying goes, don’t mess with success, and with that in mind your best bet is to pick up the original Gravity Guy ($0.99 -> Free, iPhone) / ($1.99 -> Free, iPad) as it has dropped to free in honor of the sequel.

    Stealth looks good on the surface, but disappoints upon closer examination making it one to sneak past.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Piano City has a quality core concept, but the melody gets lost with the repetitive grind needed to advance making it one to skip.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It’s well put together, but the end result is a rather lifeless gaming experience making it one to skip.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Spellfall is predictably run of the mill, and is a good example of how uninspired development has little hope in inspiring players.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Monster Adventures is overbearing, and convoluted at times with all of these extras that try to mask a relatively bland, and uninteresting gameplay style.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Stay Alight ($0.99, iPhone / $0.99, iPad) is brightly designed, but the gameplay comes up lacking with such a slow moving, and tedious nature that takes away from the whole experience. The game is beautiful, but more of a hassle then anything else, making it worth skipping.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Chillaxian is a game that is high on nostalgia, but low on present day enjoyment making it one to skip despite the promising first impression.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Civilization Revolution 2 just doesn’t live up to the price tag for fans of the series as it doesn’t add much at all. It’s also not that appealing for newcomers as it falls off the tight rope of in depth strategy, and accessibility making it one to skip.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Gunner Z looks good, but that’s about all it has going for it making it one to steer clear of.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Happy Hills 2 is just like the original, which doesn’t mesh with the standards of the App Store in 2013. It’s a bland experience in most regards making it one to avoid, so that it doesn’t blow up in your face.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Go Dance is a neat idea that isn’t executed well enough to be enjoyable making it one to skip despite the potential.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Major Magnet doesn’t get out of its own way, and feels like just another also ran in the genre despite the neat theme, potential for speed, and high quality design. It’s also worth noting that although the game is set-up for speed, and flow the level design just doesn’t lend itself for either.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Every aspect of the game leaves you wanting more, and it’s just too simple to recommend despite the good qualities.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Raby is an expansive game that comes up short on compelling gameplay making it one to hop past.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Simian.interface is a mysterious enigma at the beginning that quickly takes shape into a relatively simple experience that is too short lived to recommend.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Star Trek Trexels has a whole lot of promise, but sadly never taps into most of it, and restricts the rest.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Flowerpop Adventures has a promising outlook, but the execution comes up short making it one to skip. It’s also free to play with the usual boosts, lives, and continues for premium currency.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Mortal Kombat X provides a new coat of paint on a familiar style that isn’t the most appealing in previous iterations, and even less as time has passed.
