    Offers a great game concept, but with poor execution leaving it as one to skip
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Looks so promising, but it feels like a game designed around a monetary system, rather than to create an enjoyable game.

    Krashlander is a neat idea that suffers from poor controls, and not much depth leaving it worth skipping. The controls are the main challenge of the game, and even with them, you can easily blow through the 20 short levels.

    Table Top Racing is missing the main ingredient, and thus lacks any enjoyment making it worth skipping.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Worm Run looks promising on the surface, but the deeper you dive, the more unwanted aspects you discover. While there are some nice elements, there are too many problems to recommend Worm Run, making it one you can skip.

    The Gods: Rebellion is boring above all else and is one to steer clear of unless you like being a glutton for punishment.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Wide Sky is one you can swing far away from as frustration seems to be the overall take away despite how good it looks on the surface.

    Journey To Heel ($3.99, Universal) is a great example of how looks can be deceiving. While it looks promising on the surface, it’s just a bland, repetitive, and monotonous shooter that is aptly named as playing it is definitely a journey to hell.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Overkill 2 (Free, Universal) is overly redundant giving you the same basic thing to do over, and over as though it was some tedious chore rather than a game, making it one to steer clear of.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    GolfStar (Free, Universal) provides a deluxe 3D golf simulation engine, but comes up short everywhere else. It’s such a super simple repetitive grind, and that doesn’t even take into account the timers, play restrictions, and locked features behind pay walls. All of the other pieces of the game tear down the simulation engine leaving a crater devoid of enjoyment.

    This is one to steer well clear of, as it also has the makings to drop to free soon with the in-app purchases for gems, similar to the price drop of Jetpack Joyride.

    • 40 Critic Score
    Fist Face Fight (Free, Universal) could be so much more, but instead it’s just a very simplistic game that isn’t worth your time.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Leviathan: Warships ($4.99, iPad) is a big name title, but this ship runs aground in the shallow gameplay. The entire experience is just slow, boring, tedious, and frustrating making Leviathan: Warships one to steer clear of.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Redline Rush ($0.99, Universal) is just too simple to enjoy making it one to steer clear of with many better choices racing around.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Frozen Synapse ($6.99, iPad) is stuck in the past with layers of frustration covering the strategy filled gameplay making it one to strategically avoid. Sadly, the game is frozen in time, and just isn’t made for the iPad era.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dots: A Game About Connecting (Free, iPhone) is an ornate expression of minimalism that is just too simplistic to recommend.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Fast & Furious 6: The Game (Free, Universal) is a bland and basic movie tie-in that couldn’t be more simplistic and restrictive.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Leaping Legend isn’t worth your time, or any more words as it seems to come straight out of a cookie cutter mold that is bland, uninspiring, and worth avoiding.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Bloody Harry is as putrid as eating zombie vegetables making it one to avoid at any cost.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unless you like doing the same thing over and over, there’s no enjoyment, engagement, or entertainment to be drawn from Bloodmasque making it one to steer clear of.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Gold Diggers is promising at first glance, but digs itself into a repetitive hole fairly quickly making it one to skip.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The Drowning is a well designed tech demo that delivers extremely basic gameplay that isn’t worth sinking your time into.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    2K Drive races far behind the top tier iOS racing games while delivering a bland experience in almost every regard making it one to steer clear of.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    2013: Infected Wars is a generic and repetitive zombie shooter regardless of co-op gameplay making it one to avoid like an infection.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Six O’Clock High looks promising on the surface, but doesn’t fly high enough in the App Store to be worth recommending. If you’re interested in the style, be sure to pick up MiniSquadron if you still haven’t.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    NBA 2K14 is a disappointing effort, that is poor in the most important regards making it one to steer clear of.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    CSR Classics is one to steer clear of unless you like doing the same thing over, and over again with virtually no stimulation all while asking for boatloads of money at all times.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Batman: Arkham Origins is one to glide past, as this isn’t the Batman game for iOS that anyone is looking for.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Ninjump Rooftops is just a ninja themed version of a game you’re probably familiar with leaving it one to skip that doesn’t really deserve any more words.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Thor: The Dark World epitomizes the problems with movie tie-ins, and freemium style to deliver a rudimentary experience that isn’t worth your time.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Luxuria Superbia is different, but that’s not a good thing in this case making it one to skip as it’s just a very unsatisfying app in every way.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider is a very simplistic mini game that never expands, leaving you with a one trick pony that is one to skip.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Marvel Run Jump Smash is a by the books release offering a new themed version of a predictable genre making it one to steer clear of. Not even the Avengers could save this one.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Heavy Sword ($0.99, Universal) looks interesting on the surface, but is as shallow as games come. There’s virtually no redeeming qualities of this poorly made bland knock off, making it one to stay far away from.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Random Heroes 2 ($0.99, Universal) delivers a whole lot of sameness, and will definitely test your patience in doing the same thing over, and over. It’s not a sequel, but an extension of a previous poor outing making it one to steer clear of. Ravenous Games’ cookie cutter must be melting from over use.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Impossible Road ($1.99, Universal) is impossible to recommend with extremely shallow, and frustrating gameplay making it one to steer clear of.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Pacific Rim is a poorly designed advertisement that can’t even copy established games well, and then charges $5 for that. It’s one to stay far away from, as it’s just a pitiful effort throughout.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Madden NFL 25 isn’t quite as bad as Madden 13 Social, but it’s still a poor effort from EA that is a terrible experience that should be avoided at all costs.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Tomb Raider I is an atrocious iOS port that is completely derailed by terrible iOS controls, and it would have been better if Square Enix never re-released it on the App Store.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Family Guy The Quest For Stuff isn’t even an original waste of space, making it one to steer well clear of that isn’t even worth your time.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Worms 3 is an intense battle with horrible controls and poor game balancing that isn’t worth your money, and definitely not your time. It’s an embarrassing release, that no one should ever have to be subject to. Harsh I know, but Worms 3 earned it. If this review changes just one person’t mind on picking up this game, then my job is done.
