    Flick Golf! is a great addition to the list of flick-style of sports titles and while it only really offers one form of gameplay, it's polished and great to kill off a few spare minutes.

    Burnout Crash! thinks big with its large maps, huge explosions and crazy mix of mayhem-inducing bonuses; it's fun, but mindless and the perfect distraction for those after some simple fun.

    Vikings Can Fly! extends the gameplay for the 'flight' style of games by adding a distant goal and checkpoints to aid your progression, but tricky controls and a few flat periods of mindless flying prevent it from reaching stellar heights.

    It's easy to discount a game based of what you see; Cowboy Guns looks like any other typical twin-stick shooter with a theme, but if you leave it at that you'll miss out on the fun gameplay and story contained within.

    Finger Physics: Thumb Wars picks up the pieces where Finger Fun left off and manages to improve on an already solid physics puzzler.

    Tapforss is the perfect fodder for those who fancy themselves as lovers of skill testers; despite the casual simplicity of its presentation and controls, simply surviving a level can be a frustratingly fun challenge all its own.

    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Unlike a lot of modern turn-based strategies, SteamBirds doesn't have a phone book thick system of statistics and rules to learn; just jump in and start shooting.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Although short (anywhere up to four hours depending on how much you sidetrack), LostWinds makes up for it by not trying to pad the game with time-wasters and handing you plot almost as fast as you can handle it. The iOS version also boasts a collectable side-mission that unlocks 3D models, which can subsequently be used as an overlay for pictures in your library; it's not much, but at least it acknowledges the platform's social features.

    Captain Antarctica is an up-beat casual title that plays with common 'endless' concepts and gives it a level-based treatment instead; while not as addictive, you'll come back for more just to hear it's catchy tune again.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Biofrenzy HD features some great ideas that keep the pace fast and furious for this side-scrolling shooter and if you can forgive the usual level of button-mashing it's a great replacement for similar older titles you might already own.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A runner based platformer that offers branching level paths and a pretty enjoyable time, even if it is a little simplistic.
