    Despite its great graphics (thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 3), 3D battles, and RPGish features, we were ultimately letdown by the clunky controls, silly puzzles, unclear objectives, and persistent hand-holding that dumbed down the gameplay.

    Featuring pretty graphics and a ridiculous number of levels, Sporos’ main drawback is its lack of difficulty or challenge. Since it’s touted as a laid-back and relaxing puzzling experience, we cannot fault this oversimplified timewaster too much, though.

    Swapping out zombies for vampires and adding some particularly impressive visuals to the mix, Fangz is an exciting release during a rather dull week.

    Holding true to the vision of the original, Random Heroes 2 addresses many of the issues that we had with the first to offer a more compelling experience than before.

    Requiring balanced gameplay, a little foresight, and a dose of luck, Caylus provides strategy fans with another solid title.

    A visually appealing offering, this physics-based platformer is hampered by a short campaign and some app instability.

    With developer Xoobis bringing similar gameplay to the original, as well as an actual story, a stepped-up challenge, and more zany enemies, Zombie Wonderland 2 is yet another undead title that's worth a look.

    Commando Jack is a fairly standard addition to the TD genre save for its ability to put you into the thick of the action.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Replay value is pretty good, as you can play very stealthy in one playthrough while blasting baddies at will in another. Your dialogue choices can also differ from one attempt to another, warranting additional playthroughs to see how these decisions play out. The gameplay itself is fun, despite (or maybe even in response to) the somewhat awkward enemy AI that often leaves them exposed like cutouts in a shooting gallery.

    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.

    Featuring lengthy gameplay and cover-based combat mechanics, Shadow Guardian strives to match Gameloft's most popular shooters but must settle for average… which isn't all that bad.

    The game just doesn't hit the mark for us when it counts.

    Formerly Lost Company, this polished and newly-monikered offering provides a great cerebral challenge and enough variety to keep you strategizing for some time to come.

    Featuring a look and style very much like Halfbrick's Monster Dash, One Epic Game simply doesn't have the character and excitement of its predecessor.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Varied and convoluted pathways, team-based tactics, and a handful of exclusive moves for specific players combine to create a compelling and enjoyable strategic challenge.

    Featuring a cool silhouette style with simple controls and challenging physics-based gameplay, Spoing is an exercise in both speed and accuracy that frustrates as much as it delights.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Controls aren't as tight as we hoped, and it's difficult to judge just how far it will stretch. Given that the head or tail attaches to land as soon as it contacts it and our finger often obscures our view, this can lead to some frustrating repositioning in order to meet your goals.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Featuring endless and time-based modes, as well as unlockable customization options, this game has the guts to back up its pretty face.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Replay value is good, as you'll likely need a few retries to hit upon the 3-feather solutions for all levels. Once you have, though, there isn't a lot to draw you back in, except to solve puzzles faster to raise your scores.

    While it performs admirably at replicating an intensely intricate task, the control scheme feels unnecessarily challenging to deal with, diminishing the enjoyment we expected to derive from this unique app.

    Utilizing simple control mechanics with frenzied gameplay, BIG BAD Flower is bubbling its way up the app store charts.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite a couple of game modes and an attempt at creating some backstory, The Lost Shapes fails to feel fresh and simply adds yet another ho-hum option to the puzzle genre.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Requiring split attention to two very different game genres whose gameplay intertwines in interesting fashion, Toybox manages to create a unique experience that's more novel than addictive.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A cover-based shooter with RPG elements and great visuals but little to no story, Mass Effect Infiltrator offers enjoyable, quick-burst gameplay in bite-sized pieces that feels right at home on a mobile device.

    Unlike most casual games of a similar style, there is no way to fail at Burn The City, and that's just fine with us.

    The controls were responsive, just not sensitive enough.

    Featuring a familiar game style and numerous attempts at humor, Dig! simply doesn’t do enough to stand out from the pack.

    Easy controls, pleasing visuals, and the current $1.99 price tag make this iPhone racer hard to pass up. But will the gameplay keep you interested?

    An engrossing experience that borrows elements from Dead Space as it tries to keep gamers on the edge of their seats.

    Combining dual-stick shooter elements with rise-as-high-as-you-can gameplay, Volcano Escape manages to marry two distinct genres into one exciting adventure.
