    Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night is strangely moreish, but you'll need to put in some serious time to truly enjoy the game's later gameplay.

    Be it a rainy day or a spare moment in your schedule, Aqueduct is a fun, simple puzzle title that's easy to dive in to, but much harder to complete.

    Angry Birds Halloween is exactly what it says on the box - it's Angry Birds with a Halloween theme; if you own the original this is an easy to recommend game, but if you don't it's best to start with Angry Birds instead.

    Perfect Cell provides players with a unique choice between action and stealth elements, affecting the game's difficulty as a result of their actions; it's not 'perfect', but it's still a challenge worth trying.

    Red Nova takes a risk by deviating from the standard twin-stick setup for survival shooters, but this polished product pulls it off almost perfectly, if not entirely intuitively; a great addition to the collection of any action fan.

    Astronut is a surprisingly difficult game to master despite its somewhat simpler origins and it's worth checking out the free version before making your final purchase.

    While abstract shooters may have a limited appeal, Phoenix by Firi Games is a no-nonsense shooter that challenges players to dive in again and again to reach new heights by beating the odds that are stacked against them.

    Once you're comfortable gliding around, Phoenix Spirit is a creative Metroid-style side-scroller that will melt away the hours with its relaxing gameplay.

    If you're going to pick up an ice hockey title, 2K Sports NHL 2K11 certainly isn't a bad choice, but lacks the solid features to make it a real gem.

    Burn the Rope is a surprisingly addictive puzzler thanks to the easy to pick up gameplay and charming artistic style, though playing it on the go might be a bit risky depending on where you are.

    Floop is a fun physics challenge that holds back on the challenge, but makes up for it with its cute charm and interesting levels.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Graveyard Shift is a fun new physics based puzzle title that is as amusing to watch as it is to play.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Pirate's Treasure goes that one extra step with dual-stick shooters by adding challenge based gameplay, but once you're pimped out things can get repetitive.

    Not every Donut Games title is a winner, but small details in Cave Bowling show some growth and understanding of the mobile gaming audience.
    • 67 Metascore

    Unless you have no interest in these arcade titles at all, CAPCOM ARCADE is worth picking up for its nostalgic value alone and the ability to buy the games you do like is a nice extra.

    • 80 Critic Score
    There are plenty of other serious racers available on the App Store, but Split/Second will feed your inner tweenager's destructive lust with its explosive action like no other racer.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you don't already have a mindless arcade racer for your iDevice, Asphalt 6 will slot in nicely, but outside of the shiny graphics it doesn't offer anything others don't already have.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Vikings Can Fly! extends the gameplay for the 'flight' style of games by adding a distant goal and checkpoints to aid your progression, but tricky controls and a few flat periods of mindless flying prevent it from reaching stellar heights.

    Amateur Surgeon 2 continues its whacky take on backyard hospitalization, fixing issues from the original that help to make this a far more immersive title.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you don't mind a bit of grinding for cash, Armageddon by Meridian can be a fun and interesting action-strategy title, just don't expect fast progress through the campaign.
    • 61 Metascore

    BABEL Rising is a fun new take on the castle defense gameplay that may be a bit wicked to enjoy, but needs a bit more variety to keep you coming back all the time.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Secret of Mana for iDevices may not be the full-remake that some fans might have expected (especially when it lacks the co-op), but it's still an incredible classic RPG that genre fans should add to their collection.
    • 82 Metascore

    Cover Orange is a perfect time waster for those who need something more challenging than the average physics based puzzler, just be ready to replay stages multiple times until you work out the perfect sequence.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    They Need To Be Fed takes something as simple as attempting to jump between platforms and transforms it in to a fun mechanic all by itself; a charming title to play.

    Grab the lite version to get a taste of Hamlet's quirky style; conquering this adventure puzzler is no easy challenge, but worth it for the smile or two you get out of it.

    Surveillant proves that you don't need a huge budget or a complex system of gameplay to generate tension while providing players with a unique puzzle challenge; a diamond in the rough worth checking out.

    Whether you're taking out Frankenstein's monster, blobs of goo or avoiding those whacky plants Monster Mayhem is full of action and a cute (and yet gory) style that's fun from beginning to end.

    Farmville for your iPhone is a great way for players to access their farm without the need of a PC, but it's no replacement for the full experience on your browser.

    Blue Defense: Second Wave! is a great sequel to what was already a great title and while the tilt controls may be a bit gimmicky, the gameplay is almost second to none.

    For some, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter may be a hard game to appreciate thanks to just how realistic the experience can feel, however this is without a doubt a must have for hunting enthusiasts and fans of open-ended titles.
