    It’s such a gratifying experience to come across a title that is more than the sum of its parts.

    The secret to its success is that it looks deceptively simple, so each time you fail, it makes you furrow your brow and want to solve it just to prove something to yourself. That’s the kind of hook that gets players coming back for more.

    For just under four bucks, you’ll sail the high seas in an adventure that will keep you glued to your device. I’ve never collected toes or infested the ocean with environmentally dangerous gunk, but there’s a lot of things I’ve done on my iPad that will remain my dirty little secret. Add Pirate Legends to the pile of apps I’ll keep playing (and plundering), ’till the cows come home.

    Where’s My Water? 2 is a solid addition to an ever expanding franchise, and although I can still do without its in-app pay scheme, it’s a game that’s worth checking out.

    Still, minor gripes aside, Heroes of Loot is a damn fun dungeon crawler.

    Deer Hunter 2014 may not be for everyone, especially for detractors who see hunting as a bloodsport. On a purely gaming level, I was more than pleasantly surprised.

    Feeding a pot-bellied feline even more cookies may be a no-no in the real world, but it’s a guilty pleasure if you’re living in an iOS universe with Dr. Meow.

    Priced at only five bucks, Gilbert’s latest effort is undoubtedly a gem. But much like something valuable you’d unearth while digging around in an actual cave, it’s got some schmutz on it that needs to be polished off.

    Nakama may appear as just another pixelated action app, but it’s an experience filled with nuance and inspiration.

    My only gripe regarding Ring Run Circus lies in its complexity, but that’s just me whining about my lack of intellectual dexterity. Finding the right circles to run in, as well as when to collect stars and slap elephants, really isn’t my forte. For some, life is just a circus, and for others, it solely exists as a dream. This app offers a bit of both, so choose your circle wisely.

    The greatest aspect of Monster Adventures lies in the epic breadth of its game play. This is not a simple build your creature and watch him fight journey, as its RPG element guarantees hours of fun on your respective device.

    Thor: The Dark World is definitely a pretty game, and a fun one at that. Though the graphics never approach anything like Infinity Blade’s gorgeous visuals, it’s still a graphically-impressive title that stays true to the aesthetics of its source material and is a treat on Retina displays.

    Stealth Inc.’s tiny graphics aren’t for the faint-of-eyes, and its playfully punishing gameplay isn’t for the impatient. But if you don’t mind taking your time and working your way through problems as they’re presented to you, what you’ll find is a charming, but devilishly clever, stealth title more than worthy of your time.

    Gamers who crave for a difficult epic should definitely check out Stellar Wars.

    Like a sloth ninja assassin, Space Hulk is slow, methodical, and brutal, but offers plenty of rewards for those with patience.

    With its multitude of tasks and upgrades, Band Stars should keep you busy and interested for at least a couple of hours.

    There’s a lot of junk out there that isn’t worth the time of day, but Fightback delivers a few more punches than expected.

    The only other negatives i can point out are that you might grow bored of it after playing for too long, so keep in mind that Ridge Racer Slipstream, like the use of nitrous, is best enjoyed in short bursts.

    But without those minor gripes, RoboCop is a pretty fun game to play.

    By implementing a strategical base and a distinct environment as its backdrop, Word Puttz is a worthy addition to the puzzle genre. It’s not the most visually ambitious app to enter the iOS universe, but sometimes words, and a little prodding from a bespectacled octopus, are all that matters.

    It’s a worthy download for the puzzle-solving treasure hunter in all of us.

    Still, you’re getting a hell of a deal for only $2.99, so I cannot recommend Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game enough, especially if you’re a fan of the comics or the movies

    Though Ruzzle Adventure’s core gameplay makes for some delightful word-making action, its free-to-play trappings and lackluster presentation drag the experience down considerably, leaving you with a niggling feeling that you’d be having more fun playing Bejeweled, Bookworm or any number of similar, but better-executed, titles.

    Few games, let alone free-to-play games, offer as much quality, thoughtful content as Magic 2015.

    It’s easy to play for a few minutes and be wowed by the quick, rewarding rush of zooming through busy city streets, but put in much time and you may be driven away by the aggressive pricing, annoying ads, and numerous other free-to-play trappings which put sugar in the gas tank of this otherwise great game.

    For a free game, and despite the weird micro-transaction pricing, WWE SuperCard has a lot to offer, and it’s definitely worth a download for those looking for quick fun.

    One never knows where the road will take us, but for now I’m really enjoying the ride Pako has to offer.

    It’s a spellbinding, colorful and beautiful world that is hard to shake, even if it occasionally shoots in the wrong direction.

    The episode serves as a nice introduction to Max’s world and powers, but it also feels very introductory.

    Although there’s a lack of Game Center achievements and a horrendous misstep with the manual running feature, Stickman Tennis won me over with its straightforward game play.
