    The classic Prince of Persia has seen adaptions across many platforms, but this entry for the App Store could have been friendlier to newcomers.

    It's surprising to note that after over 15 years, few similar titles to Sonic Spinball have cropped up, making it a unique beast in many ways and still entertaining even today.

    Across Age straddles the hardcore and casual line of gaming beautifully with its simplified controls and fun accessible gameplay.

    The 7th Guest is almost exclusively destined for iOS devices of fans of the original release and while the challenge is certainly worthy of modern audiences, the way in which the narrative is presented is not.

    Despite being easy to 'finish', unlocking all the levels and items is only the first half of the fun of Ionocraft Racing.

    A fusion of Audiosurf and Boost, Synesthetic takes you on a trippy ride through your own music while basing its game around the simplicity of tilting.

    Earn to Die is a solid adaption of the Flash game, bringing all new stages, vehicles, upgrades and obstacles to overcome while also packaging in a fun competitive mode to keep you coming back for more.

    LUME is a unique puzzle experience that should delight adventure and puzzle fans. It's unique style and puzzle variety is only detracted by its constant crashing and relatively short game length.

    Tie-ins often get a bad rep (and for good reasons), but Mass Effect Infiltrator is worthy of play in its own right, which is high praise for games of this type - while not a true miniaturization of the full game, it captures the title's combat and style while providing something distinctly 'iOS' in its execution.

    If you fancy yourself a deft hand at angling shots you'll find Trigonon to be a snap, but for us mere mortals it's simply a challenging, if beautiful puzzler to eat up your spare time.

    Burn the City stretches its premise a bit thin, but at the low price, fans of this genre may want to give it a look.

    Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a great concept gone to waste as players are forced to deal with game design concepts that belong to another era.

    Men in Black 3 gives fans a chance to play out a shallow and confused role in the agency, ultimately providing another basic freemium management title with a slick skin.

    Grow Away! suffers for its generally repetitive task of gunning down enemies, but the variety of enemies; boss fights; and 'companion' vegetables to explore and use make for a strangely addicting experience.

    It's Qix combined with setting up an archaeological dig in your backyard, all the while avoiding mummies and moles. With better controls and some balancing, this could be quite enjoyable.

    Fast & Furious Adrenaline might not be the next best thing for racer fans to enjoy, but despite the unrealistic arcade style, this is still great fun for the casual gamer.

    Pocket Chef gives you a chance to not only live out some cooking fantasies, but is also a great game that gives you the tools to try it for yourself at home with or without the mess.

    NBA 2K12 steps up and represents for Basketball on the App Store with its smooth and accessible gameplay; to mangle a quote, it's not the game iOS gamers deserved, but it's definitely something they needed.

    A Super Meatboy-esque platformer based around sodapop. Interesting level design and concepts are marred by a lack of responsiveness in the controls.

    Fairway Solitaire Blast is still an entertaining card game, but it does nothing to live up the original’s fantastic blend of cards and sport.

    While you could stick with another basic twin-stick shooter, D.A.R.K at least attempts to go a step further by featuring a story and cinematics to set the mood; it's not a lot, but it's better than shooting things at random.

    Decent graphics and a fun, unique idea aren't enough to keep Volcano Escape above the rising flow of lava and you're likely to be burned by this challenging endless vertical platformer.

    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.

    Combining objective based gameplay with the swinging rope genre creates a fun and novel concept, but the mechanics themselves could use some more fine tuning.

    Wraithborne will satisfy fans looking for a mobile hack and slash, but the lack of anything ground-breaking or satisfying in the combat does little to raise this title above its contemporaries.

    While not exciting as their earlier releases, Full Fat's NFL Flick Quarterback tries something new with its 'Playmaker' mode and creates something fans of the sport are sure to enjoy.

    Gibbets 2 cashes in on its Internet fame, but doesn't quite make a smooth transition to the App Store thanks to simplified visuals and a control system not on par with the original.

    Rocket Fox fails to come together thanks to its inconsistent feeling controls; a hard game to recommend at this time.

    Grimm is a beautiful simplistic platformer with some interesting gameplay ideas, however it fails to impress with its mundane pacing that's only occasionally punctuated by fun mini-levels.

    Smash Bandits can be fun in small bursts, but is hampered by all the more cynical hallmarks of freemium design.
