    PES 2010 is almost like a tech-demo for what could be achieved for football gaming on the iPhone, but until the same level of attention to detail is placed on basic features it's a hard game to recommend even to die-hard fans.

    There's nothing really gained with The Pinball HD if you already own these titles for your iPhone, but if you haven't tried these games yet it's a great buy for anyone after a solid arcade experience.

    Has its charms, but the visuals border on going overboard (which is in itself fairly impressive considering the genre), making your continued survival a combination of luck and twitchy skills.

    The classic Prince of Persia has seen adaptions across many platforms, but this entry for the App Store could have been friendlier to newcomers.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game with this kind of scope is a rare beast for the App Store, but Prince of Persia: Warrior Within has taken a bit of a beating to fit on there and action-fans may be disappointed at the result.

    Puzzle Cosmos is a fun new idea that fans of arcade puzzlers can enjoy, but it feels too random to really appreciate.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Spires falls flat despite some decent ideas and a polished presentation, but keep an eye out for updates that may make this a worthwhile grab.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Food Processing jumps on the food-slicing bandwagon, though in this case it's more of a conveyor-belt an its unique take on the gameplay will quickly have you finger-tied.

    With the lack of decent 3D platformers on the iphone, it's good to see Rayman being ported over. If only the controls were better.
    • 59 Metascore

    Riddim Ribbon is an interesting idea, but not fully realised. The controls need some tweaking or a sensitivity option, and the track list is quite small and unvaried. With the pedegree Tapulous has, hopefully this game will reach its full potential in future updates.

    For those that remember Rise of the Triad, this could be worth a purchase. For everyone else, the presentation, controls, and gameplay might be a turn-off.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Saboteur is another decent port of a larger franchise to the App Store and only suffers minor gameplay issues that keep it from being truly great.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're looking for a sailing game on your iphone, Sailboat Championship Pro is the game for you.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A great, basic shoot'em-up that will appeal to classic arcade fans after a bite of nostalgia, but it won't get much of a spin after it's all over.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    BIG BAD Flower stops short of letting itself bloom as a fun arcade-action title and manages to get bogged down by prickly repetitive mechanics.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The 7th Guest is almost exclusively destined for iOS devices of fans of the original release and while the challenge is certainly worthy of modern audiences, the way in which the narrative is presented is not.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you loved the original Paperboy arcade title, then Paperboy: Special Delivery provides the goods, but the anachronistic gameplay isn't easy to enjoy if you missed it the first time around.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Real Soccer 2011 doesn't add much more than graphical advancements to its football franchise and while that may be enough for some it's a hard sell to those who already own earlier World Cup games from this year.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent tactical turn-based title, though its ponderous pacing makes it hard to enjoy without a lot of spare time.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Instead of throwing a bundle of randomly selected titles at classic gamers, Atari's Greatest Hits lets you choose what you want to play; games this old don't always age gracefully, but they're given a lot of respect in this emulation collection.
    • 57 Metascore

    Race After 1977 is a decent racer with a well presented visual theme, but ultimately players are left with a basic game devoid of depth or any real meaningful progression.
    • 68 Metascore

    One would expect a game based around Annoying Orange to be far more annoying, but diving in to this skill-shot title is pleasantly rewarding at least for a while.
    • 63 Metascore

    Take One Single Life for what it is - a temporary experience that's quite unique and something you may seriously enjoy; if you dislike it, at least you'll have the perfect excuse to delete it immediately.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While some amusement can be derived from Resident Evil Mercenaries VS. it only features the most basic of competitive gameplay features, making it a hard game to enjoy even if you can forgive its control setup.

    Squid Drop takes a simple concept and instead of leaving it at a handful of variations it explodes with a multitude of ideas that make each new game a worthwhile experience.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Third Blade is more flamboyant than your average side-scrolling beat'em-up and the ability to wield three unique weapons adds a bit of variety if you can afford the skills and time to grind for them.
    • 74 Metascore

    It's worth grabbing Laser Dolphin for the name alone, especially when it lives up to the name by letting you pilot a dolphin with a fricken' laser on its head; (insert evil 'muahahahaha's in here).
    • 64 Metascore

    If you have a penchant for destruction and you enjoy the idea of a giant monster rampaging through a city all in the name of environmentalism, you'll get a kick out of Destructopus; just be aware he's as slow as he is big and that can lead to some frustrating moments.
    • 54 Metascore

    A round of Glo Flo is the perfect antidote to a day filled with stress, but like any quick-fix you'll need to find something else before you run out of levels.

    Vampire Rush is great to bash out some spare time, but it's far too easy to find yourself at the short end of a pointy stick if you make a simple mistake.
