    Catch the Candy is an interesting distraction, but beyond a handful of physics scenarios it fails to remain more than an interesting waste of time.

    If you're one of the many people who enjoy the movie and you're after a fun defense title, there's no reason not to give Army of Darkness Defense a spin; unfortunately it suffers from many of the problems of the genre - notably the need to grind it out to finish the game.

    Although THOR: Son of Asgard makes good on exploring more of the comic universe, it fails to excite as an action-brawler game.

    Demolition Dash reduces the whole 'monster on a rampage' idea down to the street level, giving the game a cute, if somewhat insubstantial, charm.
    • 76 Metascore

    Just because a game is a time-waster, it doesn't mean it can't be filled to the brim with fun; sadly its relatively rigid levels focus' on high-score junkies for replay value.

    It would be great to say this is the Evil Dead game people have been waiting for, but despite its source material and simple concept it fails to excite.
    • 63 Metascore

    Max Damage is a simple physics-based puzzler/shooter that focuses on general destruction; it's nothing we haven't seen before, but the chain-reaction levels can be a literal blast.

    While ZOOKEEPER may have been a charming and fun stocking-filler for DS owners in 2005, the 'DX Touch Edition' for 2011 feels like it's stuck in a horrible time-warp.

    Despite its endless gameplay, Skipping Stone is aimed squarely at casual audiences; this isn't a bad thing at all, but it does come at the expense of burning some competitive players.

    While you could stick with another basic twin-stick shooter, D.A.R.K at least attempts to go a step further by featuring a story and cinematics to set the mood; it's not a lot, but it's better than shooting things at random.

    As beautiful as the world of Tiny Lights is it fails to provide anything deeper than the occasional action sequence or minor puzzle.
    • 55 Metascore

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon is exactly what you'd expect it to be - a shallow excuse to shoot bad-guys in the face with your space-robot.

    Burn the City stretches its premise a bit thin, but at the low price, fans of this genre may want to give it a look.
    • 53 Metascore

    Torture Bunny is a solid, if somewhat disturbing game. Our biggest complaint is that the ragdoll physics are unpredictable, and even the greatest trap setup can be ruined as the rabbit decides to fall in another direction.

    Blobster is a well made platformer, just not one that will likely interest teenagers or adults.
    • 55 Metascore

    One Man Army plays around with the TD concept by turning the player in to a sort of 'ultimate' tower - unfortunately there's no difficulty levels to choose from and things only get tougher the further you progress.

    Fans of Maple Story or of grind heavy RPGs will feel right at home with this well made adaptation.

    Xtreme Wheels takes a formula that has already proven itself in the past and does little more than repackage it, albeit in a shiny 3D engine; if you enjoy games like Trials HD there's little reason to complain, but it'd be nice to see more innovation.

    Taken for what it is, Silent Ops is a competent, if somewhat lacking action title, but it won't fulfill your cravings for espionage and intrigue.

    Originally SHIFT would tempt players to drive like a devil or an angel as you danced around the track - SHIFT 2 rewards lumbering, brutish tactics and despite the wild speeds you can't help but feel the weight of such blunt tactics dragging the game down.

    Touch Detective brings a whole lot of baggage with it from its original release in 2006 and instead of fixing the gameplay the developer has focused on implementing a micro-payment system.

    Adventure fans might find this fun, especially as it's a unique premise for the genre, but the game is plagued with a lot of problems.

    There are times when the freemium model makes sense, but with Let's Golf 3 it feels more like a cheap grab for the wallet as it hands out a stripped down title for a sport that requires lengthy multiple rounds to complete, eating up your 'energy' faster than you can earn it.

    For better or worse, Namco's re imagining of their classic arcade titles for mobile devices are always worth a look. Fans of the original will want to see how they've spruced up this arcade classic.

    Imagine Dr. Mario taking place in Candyland, with a little more freedom of movement and you have Candy Boy in a nutshell. A candy coated nutshell.

    DEO
    DEO is a beautiful and elegantly simple platformer for those who revel in stripped-down skill-based challenges, but lacking in substance for those after more than a pretty way to jump around asteroids.

    From its vibrant visual style to its simple, yet unique gameplay, Rogue Sky is an interesting experience albeit one tempered with a difficulty level that may leave you frustrated.

    Treemaker tries to revive a style of game that has lost its popularity of late, but instead it only manages to add itself to the pile of half-formed games that also failed in this quest.

    Combining objective based gameplay with the swinging rope genre creates a fun and novel concept, but the mechanics themselves could use some more fine tuning.

    Frogger Decades takes the classic Frogger gameplay and creates a campaign out of it, but even though the various additions are neat, the game might have suffered less if the character had stuck to just jumping.
