    It would be too much to ask for a full adaption of the Total War series for the iOS platform, but Battles still manages to retain a focus on strategic elements despite borrowing a handful of tropes from established genres, making it a deeper experience than your average line/castle defense title.

    While other board games remain content to try to boil down or otherwise crowbar their game on to the iOS platform, Lost Cities feels completely at home thanks to its casual simplicity.

    The disc arena from Tron meets Space Invaders in this high score arcade title that will keep fans busy with all the challenges available.

    If you've been playing through, and enjoying the exploits of Hector and Lambert, there's no reason not to pick up the final episode. New players probably want to start from episode 1.

    2360: Battle for Cydonia will provide you with an unrelenting challenge while making you and your mech look like a kung-fu master. Casual fans can still enjoy the app, but only in bite sized chunks.

    Braveheart is a fairly unique brand of action-packed and RPG inspired gameplay, but the constant twirling can be hard to watch and pull off over longer sessions.

    If you've finished the last cute-physics-3-star title to grace your iOS device, make Shark Dash your next purchase; if nothing else, it's worth it for the adorable presentation and cunningly designed levels that keep you coming back for more.

    Fighting Fantasy: House of Hell plays exactly as it should and that's a boon for FF fans, but it's a weaker follow up to the excellent Blood of the Zombies.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Who's That Flying?! treads on a fine line between frustration and fun, providing the same tight challenge you get from a bullet-hell shooter without the need for eye-bleeding graphics or hundreds of on-screen enemies.

    X2 Soccer 2010 is definitely one of the best Soccer/Football games available for the App Store with its great features and tight simulation based gameplay.

    Commando Jack is a solid entry into the Tower Defense genre, but aside from good presentation and the addition of jumping behind a turret yourself, it's a pretty stock standard experience.
    • 77 Metascore

    Despite reducing Sonic to only jumping, Sonic Jump does almost a better job at feeling like the hedgehog in its hey-day than other iOS releases; if only it didn't bring along the same baggage of similar vertical jumpers too.

    If you 'gotta have more cowbell' and you're not already sick to death of the sketch that inspired this game, then Cowbell Hero makes for a fun, casual rhythm-game distraction with a solid track listing to rock along with.

    Ramps hits that golden ratio of challenge and simplicity that's perfect for mobile gaming and should you wish to ramp things up you can try your hand at the challenges for each level as well.

    Despite its overall age, Swords & Soldiers is still a solid real-time strategy title that gets the balance of unique races and tactical challenge just right.

    Jack of All Tribes mixes RTS elements of multitasking with casual gaming elements of manually performing tasks to come up with something quick and engaging without the need to wait for 8 hours between turns.

    jAggy Race is mind-bending and not above exploiting player expectations of traditional 'arcade' racers to make things a real challenge; mastering the ability to mentally swap directions, be it reversing, flipping gravity or a combination of both is the key to victory.

    If you fancy yourself a deft-hand at precise timing you'll get a kick out of Commander Pixman's gameplay that walks the fine line between fun and frustration; those after a casual platforming romp need not apply.

    If you've ever wanted to collect lollipops while rolling a fat Panda towards a hole, Roll in the Hole will provide you with just that.

    Super Falling Fred takes the original falling title and polishes absolutely every aspect by packing in new power-ups, a bunch of unlockable characters and a challenge that scales to nightmarish levels, all at the low cost of 'free'.

    Retro Racing says it all - those who have played top-down racers in just about any form will slip right on to this title with ease and find themselves enjoying the nostalgic, yet distinctly modern feel of the game; it's just a shame it's all over too soon and without even a thank you for having completed it.

    Floop is a fun physics challenge that holds back on the challenge, but makes up for it with its cute charm and interesting levels.
    • 82 Metascore

    Very reminiscent of the Cannon Fodder series, Tiny Troopers 2 is a simple to control real time strategy game that does not take itself too seriously at all, and ends up being quite enjoyable because of it.

    Reminiscent of games like Angry Birds and Fragger, Monster Island shines as a serious contender in this genre.

    Battle Group combines shoot'em-ups with a Missile Command system of combat to create something entirely unique and challenging in a way that teases you to play just one more level.
    • 75 Metascore

    A throwback to 80s action movies and arcade gaming when the test of a man was how high a score you could achieve by punching things. Simple arcade fun.

    GoatUp fits in nicely with the Llamasoft pantheon of abstract titles, though this vertical platformer certainly feels 'straighter' than most even despite twists like killing off enemies with your offspring.

    Though we do miss the multiplayer mode, LEGO The Lord of the Rings is a sturdy port of the console game, and a great way to explore Middle Earth on your mobile.

    An engaging mental challenge that constantly evolves, God of Light kept us perplexed - and satisfied - for hours.

    'Retro' gets thrown around all too easily and while KAMI RETRO features gaudy 'pixelated' visuals its the fun modern gameplay that makes this worth checking out.
