    While so many games on the App Store (including Simogo's earlier releases) are happy with bleeping and blooping in colorful ways to providing an addictive game space, Year Walk takes a darker road and only lingers long enough to provide a decent chill down your spine.

    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.

    It's FIFA. While the controls have been streamlined and a robust manager mode has been added, whether you drop the money on this year's release comes down to how big a fan of the series you are.

    The scope and size of Aralon: Sword and Shadow's gameplay is only mildly dampened by the occasional odd problem, which may be off-putting for some, but they're far from game-breaking and certainly not worth depriving yourself of this great RPG.

    ARC Squadron is a solid shoot'em-up in the vein of greats like Star Fox, but streamlined to suit the platforms larger casual audience - don't fool yourself though as it still has plenty of bite in the later stages.

    The Lovecraftian mythos is often used and abused as a cheap shortcut for instilling thrills or mystery in to an otherwise bland story or experience; not so with Elder Sign: Omens as it shows off the true terror, danger and madness of messing with the dark unknown in this chilling board game adaption.

    :Shift!2: brings yet more challenging platforming puzzles over from the Armor Games favorite, though it can feel like 'more of the same' even despite interesting additions like a QR code scanner.
