    Egz is a well put together game with an accessible style that becomes overly simple and bland which cracks under closer examination.

    Unkilled delivers simple zombie shooting fun in a beautifully designed package, but the game grows awfully stale and restrictive quickly making it simply worth considering depending on your patience.

    Rival Stars Basketball has some good elements, but it’s just a bit too simplistic, easy, and repetitive to recommend.
    • 74 Metascore

    2-Bit Cowboy offers a great style, but is missing some of the gameplay substance making it worth considering depending on the nostalgic appeal.

    Dropchord is an action packed experience that is well suited for iOS that just lacks long term depth to keep you coming back.

    Blek takes full advantage of the iPad canvas to create a unique puzzle game that is worth considering.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It’s a game that you want to like, but it just misses that engaging factor making it worth considering depending on your patience.

    Record Run offers a neat twist that sadly wears thin quickly making it worth considering depending on your love of music.

    Breakneck isn’t bad, but it’s not particularly enjoyable either, making it worth considering depending on your affinity for the genre.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    AdvenChewers is worth considering depending on how much you like the style, but the flavor doesn’t last, and will end up bursting your bubble.

    RedStory looks great at the outset, but stumbles upon execution leaving many better choices in the App Store. The free to play structure is mainly related to ads after every level, or restart.

    If you’re looking for a visual murder mystery, you will fully enjoy the app, but if you’re expecting a puzzle game, you will be disappointed. With that in mind, Layton Brothers Mystery Room is worth considering, and you can give the first two cases a try for free.

    Octagon is worth considering if you like extremely challenging games, though there are a couple problems, and a lack of variability that detracts from the experience.

    Invertical Touch has a promising premise that stumbles on execution making it worth considering depending on your patience.

    Delivery Outlaw looks promising, but doesn't deliver the good making it one to steer clear of.

    Aside from the movement controls, Terra Monsters is mechanically well put together. The monsters look good, too. The problem is that everything else comes up short. It looks nice, and it does some interesting things with what could have otherwise been a bland combat system, but it drops the ball in so many other basic areas that it's actually rather hard to enjoy it. There's no real harm in downloading it for free and sampling the first island, though.

    Run Sackboy! Run! looks great, but is otherwise by the book development that does little to make you interested in playing, making it one to skip despite the name recognition.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Faif looks great on the surface, but comes extremely short on execution making it one to skip.
    • 68 Metascore

    Smash Bandits is a perfect example of what happens when you mess with success, leaving a bland endless game overloaded with restrictions that isn’t worth your time.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War is an unremarkable offering that is too bland, and simplistic to recommend.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    CSR Racing 2 delivers more of the same overly simplistic drag racing that will have your attention for about as long as a drag race.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Telekinesis Kyle has an intriguing theme that falls flat in execution with a short and simple experience that is one to skip.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Shiny The Firefly ($0.99, Universal) looks great on the surface, but is extremely dull once you dive into it making it one to skip.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Manuganu ($0.99, Universal) is sadly one to skip despite the promising outlook simply because it’s just another bland entry into the App Store that you’ve seen before, and will see again, hopefully with a little more action.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Jones On Fire ($1.99, Universal) is another in a long line of endless runners that has style, and personality, but doesn’t do enough gameplay wise to stand out.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Deep Loot is a surprisingly shallow game with a repetitive set-up that lacks any challenge, and pushes all of the advancement to the costly upgrades.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Lub vs Dub offers a high quality idea with a unique idea, but it’s still a relatively run of the mill gameplay experience with nothing included to keep you playing.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Stan Lee’s Hero Command offers familiar and simplistic gameplay that isn’t very engaging with everything hampered by a heavy handed monetization scheme.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Monkey Boots looks promising on the surface, but never stomps past the surface making it one to skip.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Green Game TimeSwapper has a promising pedigree with a new idea, but sadly suffers in gameplay execution making it one to skip.
