    Mutant Mudds is a slower paced platformer that makes good use of shifting perspective, but doesn't really go that extra mile to make good use of it.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fantastic looking, engaging puzzle game that is only let down by the pay for more levels feature. Hardcore puzzle fans will love it.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun little concept somewhat held back by the short, restrictive levels of the three-star format.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For those looking for something a little different in a hero defense title, Heroes and Castles will send you right in the battlefield to unleash carnage while still giving you the tactics of units and towers the genre is known for.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Complete in tow with mission system and upgrade store, this color-coded action game quickly bombards you with obstacles. Some may rise to the challenge, but others will feel baited.

    The Shivah was an early adventure title for Wadjet Eye, and it shows. It has its charms, but outside of adventure game fans, this old-fashion adventure will have trouble reaching a wider audience.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Until the connectivity issues are worked out we can't possibly recommend Heroes of Order & Chaos as a multiplayer game - its 'vs AI' mode will at least keep you entertained for a while (if you can manage to load it up).
    • 81 Metascore

    Vector graphics, tank warfare. If you can used to the control scheme, there's a lot of fun to be had here.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Knights of the Round Cable doesn't offer too much beyond a great pun for its title. The swinging lacks emphasis and once you've played the game once, beyond the need to upgrade or aim for the high score, there's nothing to keep you playing.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game where you knock a Japanese Flying Squirrel around as a pinball in small goal oriented levels. It's not too shabby.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun little platformer using a different take on appealing to nostalgia, but suffers from performance issues.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While not a terrible use of the freemium model, it's not doing itself any favors by engaging in a 'wait or spend' game style. For those susceptible to these mechanics though, Pixel People is one of the least offensive games in this genre, and will keep you glued to your screen.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though gamebook fans will appreciate the attempt to inject some life into the genre, Lone Wolf's ambitious but undercooked combat system proves more of an obstruction than an asset.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tower defense fans and those who liked the first game should find more than enough content to keep themselves busy. While the first game stood out however, this sequel suffers from some of the design pitfalls we've seen in the TD genre.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While Unpossible is a handsome beast, and does offer some initial thrills, the disconnect between your unseen avatar and its hazardous surroundings left us cold.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Towel Fight 2 takes its influences from games like The Binding of Isaac, and by extension, The Legend of Zelda, but its controls turn a well designed game into a frustrating experience.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    We've quite literally seen all of this before, which is a shame as adding the 'Monsters, Inc.' franchise in to the Mega Run mix could have been a recipe for some fresh ideas.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This retro take on the bullet hell genre might be hard to get the hang of, but it will keep you coming back for more.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid strategy experience which is hamstrung by its free-to-play trappings and ancillary reading.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Those that have fond memories of playing Outrun in the arcades, Final Freeway 2R is pretty much that experience with a very well executed tilt control scheme.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Kumo Lumo may be a gorgeous game with a unique premise, but the slow pacing and always looming 'shop' detract from the game's otherwise friendly, air of casualness.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though some may relish the challenge Crowman & Wolfboy offers, you'll likely find yourself yearning to dash though a brighter, more interesting world than this one.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An 8-bit Metroid style game full of nooks and crannies on a hostile alien world. Perfect for platformer fans and those who love exploring.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Bright, fun and definitely amusing - Burrito Bison brings Juicy Beast's gummy-bear-squishing classic to the iOS platform, but it misses a critical opportunity to flesh things out from the Flash-based original.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Storm Casters is a light-weight dungeon crawler that is fun in short bursts, but it probably won’t hold your attention for long periods.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's kinda like Fruit Ninja with bullet time, oh and you're taking revenge on the trees that killed your granny. Make of that what you will.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Blot is Jetpack Joyride on a student's sketch book. You'll have some fun with the title, but it wont last too long.
