    Even though you may be suffering from Kairosoft-fatigue, Grand Prix Story is a fantastic sim that harkens back to the developer's roots while showing the polish you'd expect of a later title in their catalog.

    If you're already in love with games like Run! or Canabalt you'll find a lot of similarities with Chop Chop Runner and its addition of touch-based enemy attacks make this unique enough to add to your collection.

    For zero investment you net yourself a title that strips out the story, random-luck and complexity of raising monsters from Pokemon, leaving a battle-focused title in its place; Little Masters is fun, but otherwise dry in its execution.

    Anthill is an original and clever take on the RTS genre that is more defense than offense based. A great play for those looking for some strategy gaming.

    Despite its cutesy exterior, Wake the Cat is a small scale physics playground that features some head scratchers, which may or may not be attributed to the engine itself.

    If you never experienced the fun of playing OutRun on an upright cabinet then you'll be missing out on some of what makes 'Truckers Delight: Episode 1' so fantastic, but the endless high-score experience still ranks as one of the most amusing even if it's not the best available.

    The iOS platform has been aching for a solid beat'em-up and Wild Blood fills the niche perfectly, if with something that feels a bit flat in its execution; at least it's a nice change to beat up on demons instead of zombies or 'gods'.

    Squishy's Revenge is a slow paced, clever puzzle experience that asks you to pay up just as you're getting into the swing of things.

    4 Towers Onslaught is a well made tower defense game with a lot of visual flair and content, although it doesn't really bring that much new to the table.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The Other Brothers is a beautifully presented and highly unique platforming experience for the iOS platform, but without tighter controls the game goes from challenging to frustrating all too easily; thankfully it's also short, so you won't be entirely infuriated by the experience.

    Despite the new hookshot mechanic, Mikey Hooks feels very familiar to its predecessor. However, when your predecessor was one of the best platformers on iOS, that not necessarily a bad thing.

    Zuma is one of the original time wasters, and Popcap shows that it knows how to exploit the formula for a solid game on the mobile platform.

    The Package is your typical physics puzzler in a sharp looking outfit and sometimes that's all your really need.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Crazy Taxi for the iOS platform is a solid step back from the console and yet another step back from the Arcade release of SEGA's classic time-trial 'racer', but even despite this the madcap insanity of its gameplay shines through making it hard not to be washed away in a torrent of nostalgia.

    Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night is strangely moreish, but you'll need to put in some serious time to truly enjoy the game's later gameplay.

    Super Mega Worm is a mindless action title that places you in the place of the 'big bad mutant' out to devour humanity, one baby-pram at a time.
    • 80 Metascore

    The fury Fluid SE inspires is offset by the satisfaction you feel when you carve a fraction of a second off your time - unfortunately this makes it a game for perfectionists.

    Sleepwalker's Journey is rich in its beauty, and cunning in its challenges; you won't finish this puzzler in your sleep.

    Though it's destined to forever squat in Zelda's shadow, Oceanhorn acquits itself on its own term as a flawed but heartfelt tribute to a beloved series.

    A fun management strategy title about setting up a town to mine for gold in the harsh untamed lands of the west. It takes a little while to get going but is highly addictive when it does.

    If you've ever wanted to play a hungry shark, gobbling up everything with-in swimming distance, this is definitely your game. It's a lot of fun too!

    Ms. Splosion Man is still the fun and over the top platformer it was on consoles, but without modifications to suit iOS devices it has some teething problems.

    Meganoid 2 turns up the heat and throws you in to a bare-bones series of white-knuckle platforming challenges; not for the easily annoyed.

    A strategic tower defense game set during wartime. Lots of variety and a well balanced upgrade curve. Easy to recommend for tower defense fans.

    Sure it's zombies, but you'll forgive me for letting that point slide when the gameplay has such an incredible zen-like approach - swing away at the undead, or let them dance the night away; either way you get the last laugh.

    Repulze combines Wipeout with a polarity mechanic, that while interesting tends to fight against the player.

    Pirate's Treasure goes that one extra step with dual-stick shooters by adding challenge based gameplay, but once you're pimped out things can get repetitive.

    Zombie Ace doesn't step too far out of the common tropes of 'endless' gameplay on the iOS, but the addition of an 'infect the city' option makes for a fun and rewarding long-term goal.

    Skyriders strips back the gameplay of a racer like F-Zero and manages to create an addictive time-trial title out of it.

    If you loved League of Evil, you'll eat up the sequel by the spoonful even if it does feel like the same thing in a pretty new package; it's a shame more wasn't done with the boss-encounters, but you'll be too hard pressed mastering the near 100 other levels to be too upset.

    For the hardcore puzzlers, grabbing Monster Flip just to compete against others via the thought-provoking 'Sequence' mode is worth the purchase all by itself - for everyone else you get a polished, cute and at times hilarious arcade puzzler that feels more like a two-for-one with its arcade and puzzle modes being pulled apart.

    The Gods: Rebellion sticks inside the well defined borders of a 3D action-brawler, even going so far as to retain the 'fallen gods' angle, and while not original it's still a solid romp.

    N.Y.Zombies 2 is exactly what the series needed as it expands its ideas beyond the tiny rooms it used to inhabit and places them in a much larger, and far more terrifying real world.
