    Cut the Rope: Time Travel actually seems a bit of a step backward for the franchise after Experiments. It still offers the same great gameplay with loads of levels however so if you're a fan, you can't really go wrong here.

    Fans of dungeon-exploring adventure titles will get a kick out of Sacred Odyssey, but it lacks the spark of vitality of its source material.

    Though the controls are never going to match those of the console versions, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is as reverent and respectful an iOS port as you could realistically hope for.

    Swiping puzzle fun. Yes we've seen this concept before but Twingo pulls it off with great presentation and a truck full of content.

    Fans of the original may experience deja-vu at first, but with so many enriched features old school fans and new-comers alike will love Zenonia 2's rich RPG experience.

    Pinball fans shouldn't hesitate in grabbing Star Wars Pinball and all of its tables; there's just too much to enjoy and it's easy to find yourself pumping in virtual coin after virtual coin for hours on end as you master each one.

    Mage Gauntlet is the kind of Action-RPG we've been waiting for on the iOS - a combination of intuitive controls suited to iDevices; fast-paced action split in to bite-sized chunks; and plenty of meaningful unlockable features makes it perfect for gamers on the go.

    Every new release from CAVE is a chance for shoot'em-up fans to flex their skills and sink their teeth in to something juicy - unfortunately Bug Princess is a little leaner than its predecessors, though still head and shoulders above most of what the App Store has to offer.

    Getting across the road and river in Frogger was always hard enough, but only Banzai Rabbit would make you come back again, challenging gamers to fine tune their timing skills.

    Linkoidz gets the best of both worlds as it matches fast-paced three-match gameplay with an element of strategy to create something unique and fun to enjoy over and over.

    MovieCat! is a fun trivia title that may not stump movie-buffs, but it provides just the right amount of challenge and fun categories to make it well worth picking up for anyone who likes the occasional movie.

    It's great to see a powerhouse like NCsoft taking the plunge in to the App Store, but Gem Keeper feels like a safe gamble with the moveable tower system not really being explored.

    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.

    Trigger Fist places a focus on simplicity, pulling back on the controls, the detail and the content to create a laser-like focused experience that competes directly with the big-boys of the genre.

    If you enjoy CCGs or you already own Ascension, this is an easy title to recommend, but if you're looking for something with a bit more meat it's worth waiting to see where the developer takes this App in the future.

    Knightmare Tower has charm, action, and satisfying progression. The controls take some getting used to, but this is still one of the better 'pick up and play' games we've seen for a while.

    If you want a solid freemium endless runner that's not wrapped up in strong arm design and doesn't take itself too seriously, one of the best has made a sequel, and it is damn good.

    All in all this is a fun game with great production value that is worth a look.

    Mad Acorn is the first in APD's series of TapTap Comix and a great start as it marries modern art forms in to a fun, interactive package that's perfect for rhythm game enthusiasts.

    A premiere strategy experience for the iPad, primarily focused on multiplayer, whose touch controls create a more engaging experience than its PC counterpart.

    Geared 2! steps things up from the original by polishing its visual style while adding a few new challenges in to the mix; worthwhile for fans of the original and casual newcomers.

    It's Street Fighter IV on your iphone. It looks great, controls well, and has mutliplayer. If you enjoy fighting games, buy it!

    Where's My Perry? is an interesting extension of the Where's My Water? gameplay, packing the same addictive charm as the original, but it's hard to shake the been-there-done-that feeling.

    It's essentially Puzzle Quest with pirates, but the sense of humour and variations to the gameplay make this an enjoyable escapade all of its own.

    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.

    Waking Mars mixes human curiosity with a fascinating storyline straight out of the pages of a sci-fi classic; learn to master Mars' complex ecosystem and find out whether or not there truly is sentient life close to home.

    AirAttack is a brief refreshing blast of fresh air for shoot'em-ups on the App Store and is definitely worth checking out.

    Though its influences are obvious, everything in Wave Wave, from its visual distortion to its geometric foundations, works in service of its frantic, addictive gameplay.

    Leo’s Fortune will immediately impress with its lush presentation, but will keep you coming back thanks to its tight physics platforming gameplay.

    While 'The Smoking Mirror' may not feature the same level of polish and love that went in to its predecessor, it's still a great classic adventure game to curl up with.
