    As farming simulators on the iphone go, this is a very good entry and worth the money if you're a fan of the genre.

    Part card game, part turn-based strategy, players pit themselves against opponents from around the world in asynchronous matches.

    Another physics flinger based on a fun premise that will offer some amusement before you move onto the next 'flavor of the month' in this genre.

    Follow The Rabbit is a great example of developer GaMaGa's growth as a studio as it re-purposes an older puzzler and makes it stand out in the otherwise busy cute-puzzler genre in the App Store.

    The frustration generated by Bridge Constructor is equal parts poor interface design and clever puzzle design; the two may fight against each other, but if you like your puzzles keeping within spitting distance of 'reality', this will satisfy.

    Just because a game is a time-waster, it doesn't mean it can't be filled to the brim with fun; sadly its relatively rigid levels focus' on high-score junkies for replay value.

    Gamebook fans will probably enjoy playing Judge, Jury, and Executioner in this tale set in the popular dystopic comic property, but it carries many of the failings of the genre and casual players will probably either find the game too slow paced or the content too violent.

    There's nothing really gained with The Pinball HD if you already own these titles for your iPhone, but if you haven't tried these games yet it's a great buy for anyone after a solid arcade experience.

    While ZOOKEEPER may have been a charming and fun stocking-filler for DS owners in 2005, the 'DX Touch Edition' for 2011 feels like it's stuck in a horrible time-warp.

    Combining poker and scrabble ends up with a fun competitive game that should appeal to board and card game fans alike.

    Fleece Lightning is a perfect distraction for younger audiences or those after a no-frills time-trial racer with a fun twist!

    METAL SLUG 3 is an admirable attempt at bringing SNK's (at the time) swan-song title for the series back to life; the controls don't quite live up to the original Arcade sticks, but it's a small price to pay if you love the series.

    Shadowlands has great potential that's crushed beneath obfuscated mechanics, odd interface design, and a slew of bugs that should have been removed before its release; no doubt updates will smooth things out, but until then the game remains a beautiful disappointment.

    A decent enough management sim and movie tie-in, but there are much better examples of both out there.

    Though Mimpi's cute platforming antics appear to be aimed at a younger audience, the obtuse puzzles and weird imagery left us unsatisfied.

    A highscore game that if you're really good, might last more than a few seconds, but its control implementation keep it from greatness.

    Fans of the WiiWare original that aren't already tired of BEAT will definitely find this App to be a boon, but the crazy speed and lengthy levels may prove tiresome to most casual gamers.

    A fun rolling platform with a lot to offer, that is somewhat marred by its control scheme.

    PES 2010 is almost like a tech-demo for what could be achieved for football gaming on the iPhone, but until the same level of attention to detail is placed on basic features it's a hard game to recommend even to die-hard fans.

    Blobster is a well made platformer, just not one that will likely interest teenagers or adults.

    A little bit Pokemon, a little Final Fantasy, Dragon Island Blue has the makings of an engaging game, but its presentation and pace weigh it down.

    Topia World Builder has a lot of potential to be a creative and immersive interactive world-builder, but for now it's more 'time wasting' than 'time enriching'.

    Though it's yet another IAP-packed endless runner, Despicable Me: Minion Rush is a perfectly serviceable movie tie-in.

    VS. Racing 2 nails the basics by providing a fun to control, gorgeous looking game for racing fans to enjoy, but beyond these features the game starts to fall apart, running in the same well-worn tracks that have come before it.

    Disco Kitten's real magic is in its short bursts of fast-paced fun in the Survival mode; while Classic mode can teach you the basics, it's too rote and repetitive to be as exciting as its endless variant.

    A fun diversion, which is what a holiday should be, but seeing that the destination is space, you would expect something a little more engaging.

    While a fantastic game in its own right, the iPhone port lacks the tight controls that made this such a joy to play on consoles, making this a frustrating experience.

    Whoever thought you could make an addictive and entertaining game about being a TSA agent? Airport Scanner has found a way.

    A middle of the road endless runner with a fair approach to the store.

    It's worth grabbing Laser Dolphin for the name alone, especially when it lives up to the name by letting you pilot a dolphin with a fricken' laser on its head; (insert evil 'muahahahaha's in here).
