    A retro pixel RPG of old, complete with grind heavy mechanics and an undeniable charm.

    For a game that doesn't ask for a payment up-front, Off The Leash remains rock solid thanks to its simple, yet fun mix of endless runner gameplay with harsh time-limits that push you to the edge of your skill.

    If you're after a slightly different take on management games with a castle-defense style twist, then Zombie Wonderland might be worth investigating though it does take time to truly warm up.

    A great change of pace from the usual over the top SHMUPs of late and while it doesn't have a whole lot of content, what is provided is polished and almost perfected.

    It's essentially Puzzle Quest with pirates, but the sense of humour and variations to the gameplay make this an enjoyable escapade all of its own.

    If you want to track your way through ruined warzones, shooting at everything that moves, and watching things blow up and go squish, iBomber Attack has got you covered.

    EPOCH stands alongside a rare handful of games that combine not only beautiful graphics for a handheld device, but gameplay perfectly suited to the iOS platform while also invoking shades of far more complex titles like Infinity Blade; an easy must have for action gamers with minutes to kill each day.

    Running Fred shifts the 'Fred' series in to a whole new dimension, giving the titular 'hero' a whole new set of abilities as he bounces, flips and dodges his way past oodles of deadly traps - a seriously addictive runner with a high skill cap for high-score junkies to enjoy.

    Similar to Spy Mouse, Zombie: the Rescue takes tense line drawing gameplay and throws it into the undead apocalypse. While short on variety, the levels give plenty of opportunity for adrenaline pumping near misses.

    BloodRunner is no cakewalk of a platformer and you'll need your wits about you and a bit of gutsy luck to dive through the game's hairier challenges, but the controls still need a bit of tweaking to make this a truly absorbing title.

    Phoenix Wright is one of CAPCOM's flagship titles that has earned its iconic status with its clever gameplay and amusing characters, but the iPhone version does lose a little in the translation from the Nintendo GBA/DS.

    Accelerometer controls act with 'jerky' responses; thankfully alternate controls are available (if difficult to manipulate).

    Like a souped up Monster Dash, One Epic Game will satisfy your endless runner needs with a peppering of wanton violence.

    Sometimes You Die has you pondering more than just its platform puzzles. Its appeal will depend on whether you like platformers with underling themes of existential crisis.

    One part Checkers, one part Reversi, this zombie themed game of strategy is a must for board game fans, especially if you have a friend locally to play the multiplayer with.

    Rock Runners is a rock-solid bite-sized platformer that may err on the side of being too 'casual', but much like any other snack you get a burst of enjoyment each time you chow down on a level and can't help but plow in to the next one immediately.

    Unlike other gas-related App Store titles, Bad Air Day remains fun without being needlessly gross while featuring plenty of humerous moments to enjoy.

    There's almost no doubting the quality that's on display for RAGE and RAGE HD, but repeat runs for high-scores can become dull very quickly.

    While not deviating too far from the beaten track, Fish Heroes provides a challenging puzzle variation on the physics-flinging gameplay we all know so well.

    Although the path-drawing / screen-painting puzzler is far from new on the App Store, Puzzler Restorer by Gavina Games makes for a beautiful and brutally brain-bending twist on the concept; expect hours to melt away.

    Karoshi isn't your typical puzzle platformer and attempting to kill yourself is harder than it sounds; a great pickup for those who don't mind a bit of dark humor.

    Fans of Bruce Lee can feel safe knowing that Dragon Warrior is truly a fun fighting title that may not be too complex, but provides a good challenge regardless of your skill level.

    Dudeski will challenge you with its speed, tempt you off-course with its pine cones, and infuriate you with every tree you hit. Somehow, though, you will still enjoy every moment.

    Hero Project replaces tedious, repetitive chores like sowing seeds with punching villains and henchmen and while the customization may be a bit thin at this time, it's still more exciting than watching plants grow.
