    Although some may get hung up on comparisons to relatively recent titles, stunt driving has been a staple on the App Store and Bike Baron is one of the best, sporting rock solid controls; difficulty scaling from easy to ludicrous; and community shareable levels for near endless content.

    Junk Jack isn't Minecraft, nor does it feel like it needs to be as its 2D world provides the same level of novel exploration fun while presenting challenges of its own to overcome; a tightly balanced free form experience that's only going to get better with time.

    Blueprint 3D isn't a hardcore game in the 'gamer' sense of the term, nor is it particularly taxing as a puzzler, but it still manages to sit alongside casual titles like Cut The Rope as it combines elegant simplicity in controls, gameplay and design to make it a truly engaging distraction for iOS gamers.

    Infinity Blade II is everything the original wanted to be and a little bit more; it's easy to get caught up in its beautiful visuals, but at its heart beats a challenging and addictive Action RPG just waiting to be conquered.

    With the premise of creatures made out of snot, this is obviously meant for a younger male audience, but what we have here is a good game that is worth a play from everyone.

    The sort of game that comes from a mad fever dream that mixes games like Trilby: The Art of Theft and Dance Dance Revolution... the end result is something that carefully balances its puzzles with a rhythm based system, sucking you right in and not letting go until you're done.

    The Tower Defense craze of the app store has long subsided but there are still games that take the formula and create a worthwhile experience for fans of the genre. Spice Bandits is one of those games.

    Pizza Vs. Skeletons aims itself at casual gamers with its huge amount of short, simple and gorgeously presented challenges that only require players to learn one set of controls to complete them all; an ingenious and at times hilariously game that's hard to rip yourself away from.

    Every last pixel of Fancy Pants feels as though it's dedicated to making its platforming as smooth and flawless as possible; simply running around is a joy, let alone completing the game or taking on its many unlockable challenges, modes and side-objectives. A must-have iPhone title.

    The original 'A Reckless Disregard for Gravity' captured the speed and excitement of base jumping in a way that was visceral, but 'Force = Mass x Acceleration' takes things to a whole new level, introducing tilt controls to the iOS platform and allowing players to feel every crunched bone as you miss that finely-timed dive through a vent-shaft; a real boon for any iPhone or iPad gamer.
