    With its humorous gameplay, simple graphics, and physics-be-damned line-drawing mechanics, Axe In Face is more than just an overly-aggressive name for a game, but rather a light-hearted, though still bloody, mash-up of genres that makes for a fun pick-up-and-play title.

    With its stylish presentation, RPG elements, and engaging controls, 1951 creates an exciting combat experience.
    • 81 Metascore

    The game remains a lot of fun and stockpiling a bunch of alternative spheres and unleashing them in one epic battle can be a blast. GameCenter integration provides global leaderboards and 3 dozen achievements to earn.

    Controls are decent, though it's difficult to estimate where your shots will end up and we suffered the occasional misfire that often led to disastrous results. In all, Jelly Wars is a worthwhile competitor in this crowded genre.

    With its open-world style, mission-based gameplay, and wanton destruction, it's no surprise that Vertigo Rogue is drawing comparisons to games like GTA.

    The ultra-smooth gameplay, great graphics, and varied game elements create a chaotic experience that delights at first, but eventually plummets into frustration.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The controls were very easy to use and pretty responsive. There is even a bit of a tilt element that comes in to play when using some weapons, as you can influence the direction of gunfire by tilting left or right.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Replay value is so-so, as you can always replay levels in order to collect missing coins and best the target time. This is, however, the only real source of replay value, as there are no global leaderboards or achievements to earn. However, the enjoyment of watching such a cool concept in practice might just be enough to keep you playing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Replay value is moderate, as the unlockable craft offer a different experience on levels where they were previously unavailable. The gameplay is fun and engaging, enough so to create a desire to pick it up and play now and again.

    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Less a sequel and more a re-imagining of the original, Saving Private Sheep 2 uses a slingshot and coin-collecting mechanic rather than a block-elimination technique to thwart the kidnapping plans of the evil foxes.

    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    At $0.99, it's a worthwhile 3.5-Dimple investment for fans of the genre, but it didn't manage to set itself apart from the more popular variations on this theme.

    Adding a dash of debonair and a thematic shift from jungle to international espionage, Agent Dash brings some exciting ideas to the table, yet buries most of the good stuff behind expensive in-game pay walls and unappealing IAPs.

    Sadly, Race After 1977 launched without a multiplayer mode, though it has been indicated that this feature will likely be added in a future update, along with new tracks, environments, and vehicles. We hope this comes to fruition, as it would really help the playability if we were racing against others who also had to deal with the same control issues rather than the AI that doesn't seem nearly as troubled.
