    Though it's yet another IAP-packed endless runner, Despicable Me: Minion Rush is a perfectly serviceable movie tie-in.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ace Patrol tries to apply the Civilization V template to WW1 air combat. Unfortunately, it a little too disjointed to fully engage.

    Leaping Legend's gameplay needs further balancing if it is to reach the same high level as its presentation.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid strategy experience which is hamstrung by its free-to-play trappings and ancillary reading.

    If you like Pac-Man, and still enjoy endless runners, you'll probably enjoy a few rounds of Pac-Man Dash!. It's a pretty bog-standard entry in the genre, however.

    Futuridium EP is an interesting space shooter with many rough edges. There's depth here, but only the most dedicated players are going to wrestle with the game long enough to discover it.

    R-Type is a faithful port in many ways, but one which reminds us that some arcade experiences need to be completely rethought on their way to the App Store.
    • 67 Metascore

    Bloodmasque's neat historical setting and photo-based wizardry can't cover up its derivative and repetitive combat system.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you fancy a leisurely travel through alien worlds suspended between two rockets, then Sky Tourist may be just the ticket. It's a bit of a slow journey, but some will appreciate the pacing.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a tranquil beauty and charm to A Ride into the Mountains that is somewhat undercut by its troublesome controls.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame's handsome visuals and exploration-friendly levels can't quite make up for the game's control issues and bland fighting sections.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite its refeshingly old-skool slant, Defense Technica is a by-the-numbers tower defence game that is marred by its in-app purchase systems.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Smash Bandits can be fun in small bursts, but is hampered by all the more cynical hallmarks of freemium design.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Link the Slug is a perfectly passable puzzler, but lacks the spark to set it apart from the crowd.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Abyss Attack is an attractive level based shoot-'em-up, that is marred by its grafted-on endless-runner trappings.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This smart, cutey puzzler isn't just for kids, but you may find that its charms wear off after a while.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're looking for a new spin on the platformer, Gleamer's momentum mechanic offers a unique challenge. However, iffy production values and an intimidating difficulty curve make it tough to wholeheartedly recommend.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Adult Swim is known for creating good games based on funny concepts. Giant Boulder of Death would join those ranks were it not for its restrictive freemium structure.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dead Effect is an adequate sci-fi zombie shooter with some control and design issues.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Shadow Vamp is a fantastic idea with a great visual style that is unfortunately let down by unreliable controls.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Drop That Candy is a passable colour-matching puzzler, but nothing more. A little light on content, too.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it's initially fun to take control of what looks like a Don Bluth animation, Buddy & Me lacks the depth of gameplay required to keep you invested.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A handsome adventure game with an enticing air of mystery let down by poor pacing and weak dialogue.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A potentially enjoyable and humerous puzzle-adventure game which is hampered by nasty touch controls and constant backtracking.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it production values are impressive and its licences plentiful, F1 Challenge's steep difficulty curve and mean approach to unlocking content throw up unnecessary road blocks.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's daft and a little rough around the edges, but Rollabear's silly bowling-inspired shenanigans offer some entertaining moments.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rabbid Big Bang's good looks and slick animations can't hide its underwhelming flying mechanics and boring missions.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Presented with wit and style, Fist of Awesome is a good old-fashioned arcade romp with some seriously entertaining sound effects.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A slightly more nuanced fighter than you might expect, Batman: Arkham Origins has its wing clipped by repetitious combat and a restrictive energy system.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Level 22 is a refreshingly unique stealth-'em-up which is unfortunately hampered by restrictive camera controls.
