    Much like Flick Golf!, Flick Soccer! manages to capture some of the essence of the original sport while giving it a fun arcade spin. Be careful because your time can easily melt away with this one.

    While not too removed from the first game, Zombie Wonderland 2 gives you more frantic action in a zombie defense shell. For fans of the first game, tower defense-esque titles... and zombies.

    1000 Heroz has the potential to be something really amazing, but the slow release of levels means you'll either need to put it aside for a time or knuckle down to obsessing over one race per day.

    Unlike SEGA's previous revivals, ChuChu Rocket! feels perfectly at home on an iDevice, making this a must have for puzzle fans that haven't tried the original.

    Quell is a beautifully relaxing puzzle title to delve in to and even when things get rough it's easy to get lost in the moment and just play for the sake of chilling out.

    Though the basic combat can get a little wearisome in large doses, Echo Prime's cocktail of sci-fi tropes, mystical powers, and RPG leveling offers a decent throatful of neon-soaked gratification.

    A beautiful little adventure game that looks to take inspiration from Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP.

    Liberation Maiden may be short, but its Zone of the Enders-lite gameplay ramps up quickly and ends on a high note, making it worthwhile even if it does leave you wanting for more.

    What Get Outta My Galaxy! lacks in gripping gameplay it makes up for with its detailed presentation; slapping self-replicating alien seed pods is just as weird as it sounds and thankfully just as fun as well.

    A retro platformer invoking memories of the Megaman and Contra games. While the on screen buttons are tweaked well, this game is begging for a NES controller.

    It's not Little Big Planet for the iPhone, nor was it really intended to be that deep, but Toyshop Adventures still carries some of the problems from it's creative inspiration.

    Gobtron is big, cute and about as thick as a concrete bunker, but that doesn't stop him from being able to defend himself - his eternally runny nose is a mystery best left unsolved, but at least you can have fun mopping up enemies out to destroy this gentle giant.

    2XL continues to impress gamers with the visuals in TROPHYLITE Rally, but despite its realism there's not enough challenging split-second chasing moments to keep coming back to.

    What starts out as an almost rudimentary word-game quickly starts to snowball out of control in to a frantic, mind-warping challenge of not only making words, but multitasking lethargic letters.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you come in to this game expecting an EVE or Privateer, you're going to be disappointed, because while Galaxy Pirate Adventure gives off the guise and visual splendor of these games, it's ultimately a basic RPG.

    If you're going to pick up an ice hockey title, 2K Sports NHL 2K11 certainly isn't a bad choice, but lacks the solid features to make it a real gem.

    Lunar Racer may not be as unique as it had hoped to be on launch, but its fast flipping and nitro-boosting Kart-style racing is both eye-popping and fun at the same time.
    • 82 Metascore

    Cover Orange is a perfect time waster for those who need something more challenging than the average physics based puzzler, just be ready to replay stages multiple times until you work out the perfect sequence.

    Splode is a quick, elegant and amazingly intuitive game to enjoy that only suffers from some replayability issues due to the randomness of the spawning orbs and its limited gameplay variety.

    Short of physical controls, Super Crate Box is a near perfect adaption of the 2010 smash-hit; fast, frantic and fun - the three f's all action fans should be able to appreciate.

    EVAC may resemble Pac-Man on the surface, but the elegantly polished combination of gameplay elements makes this more than just a simple arcade title.

    This isn't Pitfall as you may know it - in fact it's another Temple Run style title, but one that feels at home with Harry's perilous trip down the side of a mountain.

    Whatever platform you choose to play it on, MacGuffin's Curse is a fun puzzler with a surprising amount of depth thanks to its adventure-game inspired dialogues; challenging and amusing for gamers of all walks.
    • 83 Metascore

    BioDefense: Zombie Outbreak brings something new to the table for TDs and while the strategy elements may work for some it's not a perfect system.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Cut the Rope: Time Travel actually seems a bit of a step backward for the franchise after Experiments. It still offers the same great gameplay with loads of levels however so if you're a fan, you can't really go wrong here.

    Sky Tourist Blitz Trip provides a healthy dose of gently-paced, entertaining physics-based problem solving action.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Middle Manager of Justice is how freemium should be - despite its repetitious nature, there's always something new to occupy your attention and you're never punished for wanting to explore all of these options; IAP feels like it actually enhances the game, instead of merely replacing gameplay elements that should already be there.

    Luna Bears is a very solid platformer that may have a cutesy aesthetic and premise, but is both surprisingly tough and rewarding.

    Modern Conflict is a clever and extremely addictive action title that will require sharp observation and quick-witted tactics to survive; however it's not hard to blame some who feel it's quite literally been done before.

    Fluxx turns traditional card-based board games on its head by refusing to state more than the basic rules - how the game turns out is entirely up to the luck of the draw, and that's half the appeal.

    Zombies. doesn't have much new to add to the zombie-smashing-twin-stick-shooter variety of arcade games, but its battles have a genuinely brutal feel to them (and failing that, an over-the-top zaniness) that's hard to dislike... an infectiously amusing romp.

    The biggest shortcoming of Bubble Pets is the audience it seems to be aimed towards - while those with short attention spans will love the flashy over the top style, it also means they're unlikely to remain interested for very long either.

    EA Sports seems to have opted for FIFA 11 to act as a sort of short arcade stop-gap for players after a game when not playing the console version, however the missing features make this feel like a hollow shell instead of a triple-A title.

    For those without easy access to a 3DS copy of Theatrhythm, the iOS version makes for a decent, if less featured replacement; in the least you can 'pay what you like' by sticking to songs you enjoy, so it's a treat for anyone who has enjoyed one or more Final Fantasy titles.

    Mr. Crab is nothing more or less than a competent, lighthearted, and gorgeously presented platformer you can tackle in bite-sized snacks. It does settle in to a rut early on, but you might not care if you're having enough fun.

    The controls were almost enough to put us off from this title, but once you're 'at ease' with them you'll find a charming, if generic JRPG in Crimson Gem Saga that feels comforting for fans of the genre.
