    Drop That Candy is a passable colour-matching puzzler, but nothing more. A little light on content, too.

    While not a terrible use of the freemium model, it's not doing itself any favors by engaging in a 'wait or spend' game style. For those susceptible to these mechanics though, Pixel People is one of the least offensive games in this genre, and will keep you glued to your screen.

    Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a great concept gone to waste as players are forced to deal with game design concepts that belong to another era.

    It's hard to say who 'Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time' is for; fans are liable to balk at the sterile world and those unfamiliar with the series will find the unexplained characters and set-pieces frustrating - it's still a half-decent puzzler, but it's only really connected to Doctor Who in name only.

    Centipede: Origins is a fun upgrade to a classic shooter, but until updates address the poor interface design, this is a game suited primarily for iPad users alone.

    The Act could easily be compared to Dragon's Lair. Both are superbly animated experiences, but are quite low on the gameplay side of things. This will amuse, but don't expect any lasting enjoyment or replayability.

    A fun rolling platform with a lot to offer, that is somewhat marred by its control scheme.

    A nice introduction to the endless runner genre (or in this case the endless flyer). Pleasant visuals but there are some balance issues.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Another endless runner that will provide some amusement to fans of the genre, but ultimately lacks the spark to leave an impression.

    Despite some fancy visuals and a novel idea, Rival Knights reliance on in-app purchases quickly stops it being fun.

    If you pine for the days of classic Arcades and their endless slew of quarter-ingesting titles, you might just want to grab 64th Street - A Detective Story to bulk up your collection of titles.

    Grow Away! suffers for its generally repetitive task of gunning down enemies, but the variety of enemies; boss fights; and 'companion' vegetables to explore and use make for a strangely addicting experience.

    An intriguing name, an intriguing setup, and an intriguing approach to a puzzle game. While it feels that the presentation and controls could have warranted more attention, this will provide some amusement to puzzle fans.

    What could be a very enjoyable acrobatic endless runner is hampered by an unresponsive and tiring control scheme.

    A competent physics puzzler with some great design and style. The preciseness required might cause some to steer clear however.

    ADVENA's party-play Action-RPG combat is a blast be it offline or online, but you'll have to cut through the usual swathe of clunky interface designs, poor translations and level grinding to truly enjoy the beat'em-up gameplay.

    Death Golf is an action-packed re-imagining of the game many know and some (unexplained by science) love, but aside from the unique concept, the execution feels weak and hard to enjoy.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Provides an fun challenge for those who don't mind their games taking less time than it takes to watch a commercial, but attempting to master this title is an excercise in humiliation.

    A Breakout style game with Pong style paddles all wrapped up in a machine-punk presentation.
    • 67 Metascore

    Karateka fails to excite as it expects players to enjoy short and repetitive bouts of tapping without any real input in to the outcome of each fight beyond their skill at 'timing' - you could save Mariko three times, but saving her once proves to be once too many times already.

    Bright, fun and definitely amusing - Burrito Bison brings Juicy Beast's gummy-bear-squishing classic to the iOS platform, but it misses a critical opportunity to flesh things out from the Flash-based original.

    It's not quite Typing of the Dead, but Font Monsters tries something different and while it's not terribly exciting it has some cleverly animated designs that are fun to check out.

    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.

    Blazing Arc - Magical Shooting Game lays down some solid groundwork for what could be a fun and challenging bullet-hell inspired shooter, but players will be at the mercy of future updates to provide more lasting content.

    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.

    Across Age straddles the hardcore and casual line of gaming beautifully with its simplified controls and fun accessible gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An interesting idea plagued by game speed that's far too slow, making the whole ordeal rather boring.

    Greedy Penguins is a decent take on the long-established formula of cute animals and physics puzzles, but it fails to make its gameplay as exciting, engaging or rewarding as those it seeks to stand along-side of.
    • 77 Metascore

    Another physics flinger based on a fun premise that will offer some amusement before you move onto the next 'flavor of the month' in this genre.

    Part Lunar Lander, part Bionic Commando, Rusty Orb has a neat premise coupled with the potential for fun gameplay, but it never fully reaches that potential.
