    While I might not be a terribly huge fan of NASCAR, I am a big fan of racing games. For the first NASCAR game on iOS devices, this one sorely disappoints. Now, I realize it could be pretty tough to smash in 42 cars on a track on a tiny device, but something with actual racing would have been greatly appreciated.

    Schrodinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark isn't terrible, but it's a far cry from being good. The randomized level designs are bland, the puzzle-solving elements are so easy they're barely puzzles, and the writing and sound design will grate on your nerves far more than they'll entertain.

    Free is free, and this game is good for a few smiles and some decent entertainment, but you cannot outrun the ceiling of mediocre, free games forcing players into micro-transactions in order to unlock the fun stuff.

    Sky Gamblers: Cold War might be aesthetically pleasing, but its other attributes aren’t.

    I’d like to think that, for whatever reason, the developers just had to rush it out the door and there will be more to come that builds upon that stuff. But who’s to say? It could also just be a Cliff’s Notes game.

    The actual racing, though nothing to write home about, is diverting enough to pass the time.

    Once Naughty Boy fixes its bug issues, I may return for a few rounds. But since batteries aren’t really included after you run out of your first batch, I may just delete this app altogether. I’ve paid for in-game additions only to be disappointed with a few glitches down the road.

    Fans have been wishing for the perfect Dragon Ball Z game for a long time, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse makes it clear that they'll need to collect the dragon balls again and wish for something else, because this thing sucks harder than Yamcha.

    Skip this game with extreme prejudice.

    Now, despite its numerous flaws, at heart Steam Punks could be a pretty good time. There’s a reason the universe has seen so much of Mega Man and his various reincarnations and spin-offs — its because those games are damn fun. Steam Punks wants you to have the same kind of fun, but lacks the polish or the technical power to elevate itself above the rabble.

    Humanity in Chains' gameplay is obviously uninspired and riddled with poor design choices.

    Deadman’s Cross may technically be free-to-play, but it will cost you precious minutes and hours that would be better spent doing damn near anything.

    In many ways, J-Stars Victory Vs+ is reminiscent of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, with its simple brawling, flashy anime characters, and even flashier special attacks. But while DBX was, at times, more fun and impressive, it was also much glitchier and more exasperating. J-Stars Victory Vs+ is more middle-of-the-road bad— it's never especially frustrating, but it's also never especially exciting.

    As a distraction while on public transportation, Infinity Danger is good for a few minutes. But any more than that and it will begin to frustrate you because of its squandered potential.

    Overall, Crush Your Enemies feels like something from bygone era and not in a good way. The humor feels outdated, the gameplay is like something out of a MegaTouch machine, and the pixelated graphics look like a late Super Nintendo game without the charm.

    If you’re a fan of Mayday Parade, then you’ll recognize their music throughout the game. But, to be honest, if you like their music, buy and album and leave this in a dark corner of the App Store to become faceless and forgotten.

    Maybe if there were more games to play without paying first would Ariel’s Musical Surprise be a bit more enjoyable.

    League of Mages plays exactly as advertised, but there’s not much else to it, with little incentive to keep on playing besides endless grinding for hours in order to change your character’s outfit.

    I cannot conclude this review without stating my utter hated for gyroscopic controls, and Driver’s Ed still does not give you the option of manually steering your car with on-screen controls (or any options for that matter).

    Charade Parade is a beguilingly simple game mired in freemium hell.

    As a pinball game, Marvel pinball is wholly unremarkable, and in a marketplace overflowing with other great pinball games (like the Pinball Arcade), you can forgo seeing your favorite characters in exchange for a much more entertaining experience.

    Type-0 HD's many technical shortcomings may have been forgiven if it were ported to the PS Vita instead of a current-gen console. Despite including stalwarts like chocobos, Odin, Moogles, Airships and a major character named Cid, Type-0 HD did not feel like a Final Fantasy product, especially in terms of quality.

    As it is, this is one Marvel game even Stan Lee would pass on. ‘Nuff said.

    Slender: The Arrival manages to dull Slendy's mystique by shining a light on him and revealing his terrible secret: he's the star of a really crappy video game.

    If Keiji Inafune wants Mighty No. 9 to become as beloved as his blue-and-cyan predecessor, he and his team would do well to think deeply about modern updates to his classic formula to figure out what it is that makes them work so well. As is, Mighty No. 9 is a mighty, mighty failure.

    For a couple of bucks, a few bones thrown our way would have made this Dormus worth hailing. Until then, just let this taxi pass you by.

    Longtime fans of Blood Bowl who are down with the lingo and the rules should have no problem jumping in and enjoying this new tablet-based version of the classic game. Those new to the bowl, however, should do a LOT of research before jumping in, or else you’re going to feel slighted, cheated, and lost.

    Nero holds a lot of promising ideas and a neat little story back with a smorgasbord of technical mishaps and slow, choppy gameplay.

    Delta-V Racing has all the trimmings of a potentially excellent app, but unfortunately in this world, whether it’s two or three dimensional, execution is key. So if you really do have control issues in your real and iOS life, this flawed racer stalls at the starting line.
