    If you have the time to spare though, Eufloria is a beautiful and entrancing addition to the iOS library.

    If there is a downside to One Epic Knight, it is that the upgrades are priced high to encourage in-app purchases using real money, which is a common problem with this type of mobile game. Other than that, just make sure you turn down the volume to avoid the grating voice acting, and enjoy dashing through castles in one of the best mobile infinite runner games yet.

    Tales of Graces f is a tale worth telling and a game well worth playing.

    The World Ends With You: Solo Remix is a massive game for iOS, and it gets a gorgeous visual upgrade over the DS original. However, it's hard not to feel that it's priced too high for the iOS market, especially for a non-universal app.

    Camera adjustment issues aside, inspired level design and creative puzzle mechanics make Blast-a-way an easy iOS recommendation.

    What's impressive is just how many interesting levels and puzzles the developers have created with such simple and admittedly limited controls. Across 80 levels, One Tap Hero never feels like it's running out of steam, with the exciting promise of more to come in future updates.

    Even without the downloadable level packs, HueBrix brings a fresh face to mobile puzzle games for a head-scratching good time.

    When the whistle blows and the action is go, PES 2013 is easily a match for FIFA, coming closer than ever to wining back its crown.

    Marvel fans and those looking for a challenge after Infinity Blade will want to pick up Avengers Initiative for its comic book story and fantastic cinematic visuals.

    LittleBigPlanet PS Vita in many ways defines the series. The option to create on the move or jump in and out of user-generated mini-games sees the concept take on a new level of significance, and it makes few compromises along the way. Age-old complaints about the complex nature of content creation still apply, but so does every one of the plus points of the PS3 classics.

    If you're prepared to put in the hours and make those fingers bleed, Rocksmith is the perfect learning tool, hitting all of the right notes and striking a chord with rock fans.

    New Little King's Story should be commended for the way it amalgamates several complex genres into one fun and accessible package. It will almost certainly appeal to RPG fans more than real-time strategy veterans, but the elements it draws from both genres complement each other exceptionally well. Although players familiar with the Wii version will notice more than a few similarities, most of the comparisons drawn will no doubt be favourable.

    It's a more methodical game than Angry Birds, requiring thoughtful planning and pinpoint timing, but in many ways that also makes it a more enjoyable game than its predecessor.

    The rigid quest structure and age-old combat system feel archaic when measured up against the new kid on the block Guild Wars 2, and the new features that the Mists of Pandaria brings aren't quite enough to recommend it to MMORPG newcomers over the NCsoft title. Blizzard has done plenty right with its latest expansion, but the battle to rule this thriving genre could be about to heat up like never before.

    Dishonored's open-ended approach is a commendable one, but we felt the way it cheats the player out of the best ending if they choose the 'wrong' play style to be a bit frustrating. However, while it's a little short, Dishonored is ultimately a very enjoyable experience, with a vivid, unique world that will surprise whoever steps into it.

    Pokemon White Version 2 is unlikely to convert anyone who was previously unconvinced by the installments of old, or ensnare many newcomers from the older demographic, but the series has always had a Marmite quality to it.

    While some could rightly criticize The Unfinished Swan for what it is lacking, sometimes an empty space can still speak volumes. Just spray a dash of paint, and you may see that it isn't all that empty after all.

    It controls well, with Sonic reacting smoothly to the tilt controls.

    With gorgeous visuals and smooth controls, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is a great, if unsurprising, pick for your mobile racing needs.

    Its fascinating story and well-balanced array of puzzles means Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is probably the best outing in the series since the ground-breaking original, and the new approach to visuals once again reminds you of the system's now forgotten selling point; its terrific 3D screen.

    The inclusion of 'Classic' mode is a shred move that is sure to pay dividends, causing many old fanatics to relapse and encouraging newcomers to join the fold, but it still remains miles ahead of its competitors with its sheer level of depth, sophistication and challenge.

    Hotline Miami is an odd experience. Missions flow between stealth and combat with split-second tactical choices reinforced through trial-and-error. The context for that gameplay is brutal beyond measure, though the game also provides a rare opportunity for reflection.

    Punch Quest is a wonderful fast action romp for iOS that will keep drawing players in for a long time to come.

    Wonderbook: Book of Spells is an impressive piece of technology, realizing the potential of augmented reality as a teaching tool and a means of wholesome family entertainment. Its appeal diminishes the older your children get, but Sony has convinced us that a world of possibilities lies ahead for Wonderbook.

    Overall, Angry Birds Star Wars is like a "best of" album for the series, combining terrestrial and space levels with fun character abilities all wrapped in a delightful Star Wars shell.

    Outside of multiplayer, New Super Mario Bros. U offers little in the way of innovation, focusing instead on delivering tightly-designed levels, which look superb and can be played when the television is in use.

    Nintendo Land is a completely unique game unlike anything else available on other consoles, combining the way the Smash Bros. games used Nintendo's history with the innovation of Wii Sports.

    The fact that it is actually possible to earn enough currency to unlock everything makes Chip Chain unique among free-to-play games, to the delight of players. All of it leads back to a satisfying core matching game that will keep players glued to their touchscreens for a long time to come.

    Despite a surprising amount of repetition within the single-player campaign, Far Cry 3 is a wonderful shooter with lots of secrets to discover and a huge game world to explore. Taking place in a stunning environment and featuring a compelling narrative, as well as an excellent cast of characters, Far Cry 3 offers hours of enjoyment, something which is greatly extended thanks to its competitive and co-operative multiplayer modes.
