    Lumber Jacked ($0.99, Universal) is an exhilarating rush to the finish that nails the essence of the past while delivering fresh challenges, and great touch controls. Lumber Jacked is worth picking up as it jacks up the action for some fast paced enjoyment.

    Assassin’s Creed Pirates has no wind in its sails making it one to skip despite the high profile nature. There’s a big name, deluxe graphical design, but extremely simplistic and repetitive gameplay, which sinks this ship.

    Bloodstroke is promising on the surface, but is much too shallow to recommend making it one to skip as it never evolves beyond the mindless simplicities. In the end, it’s a simplified version of Samurai II, which is a much better game to pick-up.

    Just isn't balanced well enough for enjoyment making it worth skipping.

    Ring Run Circus is a brand new idea packed in a well designed game that can cause dizziness, Once you hit that first level where you flow seamlessly through transitions, and everything really clicks you will be hooked on the game.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Cognition Episode 1 ($3.99, iPad) is a deluxe point and click adventure that isn’t perfect, but does deliver an engaging overall experience that you will want to keep diving into.

    Breach & Clear isn’t the perfect game, but it packs quite a strategic punch for such a low price making it worth the price of admission.

    Angry Birds Stella doesn’t reinvent the Angry Birds wheel, but it’s more of the same with high production values and a focused theme.
    • 65 Metascore

    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.

    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.

    The Cave has a lot in store to create a worthwhile experience that is dragged down by a subpar control scheme, and odd gameplay balance. It’s still worth picking up for such an engaging, and lengthy puzzle adventure.

    Spellfall is predictably run of the mill, and is a good example of how uninspired development has little hope in inspiring players.

    Strike Wing: Raptor Rising is one to fly right past as it’s not worth your time, or frustration.

    The first episode isn’t bad, it’s just not that engaging, or intriguing to care about any of the upcoming episodes making Abducted worth skipping for now.

    There are so many quality features, but they get lost when almost everything you do in the game is either asking for gems, or restricting your success.

    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.

    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.

    Star Wars Uprising offers brand recognition, and little else making it one to jump to hyperspace past.

    In the end, Monkey Boxing is worth considering depending on your infatuation with monkeys, and simple arcade action.

    Contra: Evolution is based on the classic, but the “Evolution” enhancements aren’t necessarily good things. The entire experience feels muted kind of stuck in between the past and present, and failing to deliver the best parts of either.
