    It's almost possible to execute a hands-off completion of a level, but the app will always find a way to surprise you and cause you to react.

    If you enjoyed Plants vs. Zombies, then Pro Zombie Soccer is a close second. It just needs a dash of movable play to give it what it lacks in terms of gameplay.

    Its high quality graphics are some of the best to come out recently in the iOS app scene. Unfortunately the infrequent crashes make this game frustrating and hard to play for an extended period of time. Overall, The Adventures of Tintin is something worth downloading, once Gameloft has fixed these bugs.

    The control system has been copied over too many times to count, and even the stellar graphics can't save the iPhone app from feeling a little tired by the end of an hour or so of playtime.

    The game play is fun but after awhile it's all just rinse and repeat. Fortunately enough the game isn't short.

    Ultimately it's about dispatching units as fast as you can and a mass of units pretty much always results in a win. I have to say that the AI is good and makes the battles fairly even and makes a win possible.

    The concept is a sort of admission of the indubitable existence of intelligent life forms in the universe. Otherwise, I would not have even given the game a second thought.

    It is a very neat idea and a super entertaining game. However, it gets old quickly.

    Who says cheap simple games have to suck? Robosockets is definitely an app I would recommend someone looking to kill some time and had some spare change.

    If it weren't so buggy, we'd have given it a much higher score, and it would be at the top of our list of favorite games. In the meantime, FD will sometimes simply refuse to start, and will often crash to the home screen for no apparent reason.

    The lack of any real depth and the abruptness with which the title becomes stale both ruin the value of it.

    Just another casual matching game, so it's not going to change anyone's life, but as matching games go, this is a very, very nice one. It's polished, professional, and dripping with fishy charm, which is about all you could ask for in a simple game like this one.

    All in all Poker Pals is a great, light iOS app that is a worthy purchase if you have plenty of friends who enjoy similar gameplay types. Just don't expect a real brain teaser.
    • 76 Metascore

    The concept is fairly original and the controls are simple to use.

    The flaw with Kaptain Brawe is that some of the puzzles seem arbitrary and purposefully annoying.
    • 75 Metascore

    I would recommend Emissary of War to Runescape or Lord of the Rings fan. Though it is very easy, it does get sort of addictive with combat and collecting items, not to mention the witty dialogue.

    Pixel Ranger tries to offer a twist on a standard shooter, but while it does work, the chaotic controls greatly hinder it. Though it only has a few problems, these problems prevent it from being a classic.

    Overall, I think Cardboard Castle is an amusing game for what it is. If you like trial and error type of games, funny visual effects, and something with a storybook charm, I suggest getting this app which at $0.99 is reasonably priced.

    The drawback is that if you lose, you have to start at the first wave again. I think Breakeroids is an enjoyable quick-play style iPhone game that tries to bring back the charm of its classic predecessors.

    Enjoyable, but it takes a long time to get into. Although the graphics are cute and attractive, the story falls very flat, and the action just drags while you're struggling to get the hang of the controls.

    The arcade game has more variety and you can play as Marge, Bart, and Lisa, in addition to Homer.

    Eufloria HD is certainly worth trying, but it's likely not worth the current $4.99 price tag.

    I won't deny that Bop It has a very clean user and kid-friendly interface, and it can be fun, if rather hyperactive, but the overall experience is undeniably awkward on the iPhone and it's a far cry from the toy's humble, molded plastic origins.

    The thing which really bugged me was the misalignment of the compass controls.

    Madden NFL 12 for iPhone is a good, but not perfect mobile version of the gridiron giant. While it may not replace the console version for hardcore fans, it's definitely a great way to get that quick Madden fix at the office or between classes.

    Eternal Legacy reaches for the stars and, while coming close, is hampered by the difficulty, sound and script. If Gameloft can improve upon these factors for a sequel on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch , they will have a definite hit on their hands.

    Overall, the game has a lot of new material, and has potential to be good, although it is super annoying having to deal with that red arrow. Until they remove that my advice is to stay clear and go with the original.

    Visually, the graphics are less impressive than the gesture controls and functionality.

    A solid game. It has its flaws, but we have to believe they'll be ironed out as Gamevil receives feedback. It's a free download that relies on in-app purchases, but the core of the title can be played for free. If you have an iOS device and like boxing, give it a shot.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In my case, I really couldn't stand the talking fruit, and I initially thought the game was too simple to really be good, but then I COULDN'T STOP PLAYING.
