    Bombcats may have a more cuddly appearance than the developer's past titles, but the impeccable design behind its puzzles stands out as some of Radiangames's best work yet.

    Fans of the original will still probably be willing to look past Tokyo Jungle Mobile's awkward controls and less involved combat, and if they do they will find much of the same addicting survival gameplay intact hiding underneath.

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

    Quantum Conundrum is a fun and thought-provoking take on the physics-based puzzler. It's quirky and challenging with enough depth to its mechanics to keep players persevering when the going gets tough. If lateral thinking is your thing, you can't go far wrong with this one.

    Strider is admirably true to the game that Capcom released on arcades in 1989 and will delight those who still hold a candle for the original, with its unaltered core gameplay and polished production values. With these qualities on side, it's easy to overlook the game's shortcomings and deem it worthy of the Strider name.

    Jack Lumber evolves the slashing formula of titles like Fruit Ninja by adding a bit of finesse. Similarly to the food-slashing game, logs will fly onto the screen and it's your job to hack them into pieces.

    It's a game capable of delivering real moments of magic, but is too often marred by inconsistent Kinect controls that can turn those feelings of joy into frustration.

    Soul Sacrifice is undoubtedly one of the deepest and most interesting games available for Sony's handheld. The dark fantasy style and slightly repetitive missions might put some people off, but if you're looking to invest a lot of time into a game and don't mind sacrificing your social life, Keiji Inafune's latest is just the game for you.

    Dead Trigger 2 already had amazing visuals, and with the refinements to the controls it now plays almost as good as it looks. There is still some tedious grinding and repeated missions, but overall this is a mobile first-person shooter done right.

    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.

    It is unforgiving and brutal, but in the best of ways that challenges players to carefully consider each step. For those who don't shy away from a challenge, ZombiU may just be the best reason to own a Wii U at launch.

    Each dungeon has its own theme and unique enemies, but once you learn the enemy patterns there is little incentive to go back through one you've already completed. Even the infinite dungeon recycles enemies from the rest of the game, making Deep Dungeons of Doom a fleeting but fun mobile adventure.

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

    Though not as experimental or revolutionary as we would have liked, Peggle 2 is as bright, bouncy and brilliant as ever, delivering the same addictive action as its predecessor.

    D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die may just be the beginning, but it is easily one of the most delightfully bizarre trips of the year. It won't always make sense, but there is a consistent earnestness to its oddity that somehow makes it all work in harmony of '80s saxophone riffs and overly-affected Boston accents.

    New Super Luigi U doesn't necessarily improve on New Super Mario Bros. U, and we wouldn't recommend it for those who didn't get on with the original. As an expansion for a Wii U launch game that might be gathering dust, however, New Super Luigi U introduces lots of wonderful levels and an increased challenge.

    Republique's first episode is a strong, if somewhat short, introduction to the stealth series that holds a lot of promise, but could still use some refinement before the second episode arrives.

    Toki Tori 2+ joins Fez as part of a new breed of exploration-based puzzle games.

    Combo Crew is a fun brawler with plenty of content for players to dive into, but all of that content doesn't mean much after a while as it all starts to blend together.

    Based on my time with the game so far, I would certainly recommend making a date with Destiny.

    Neither the combat, the puzzle solving or the presentation is overly brilliant on its own, but put it all together and you have a winning package that perfectly suits its target audience.

    As it stands, it's a game that could really benefit from some additional content if it's to evolve into the next must-have multiplayer shooter.

    But when it comes to the story itself, there is a nagging sense that either a piece of the puzzle is missing or perhaps that the puzzle just wasn't as interesting as it first seemed.

    So while Third Eye Crime is certainly worth a download for curious fans of stealth games, that worth is also dependent on your willingness to pay a little bit more than the sticker price in order to get the full experience.

    Once you start an online match everything runs fine, but the initial connection often takes longer to establish than the match takes to play. Connection issues aside, for speedy wordsmiths Writer Rumble is an excellent find while those with slower fingers will want to steer clear for something more turn-based.

    Saints Row 4 may not be perfect, but it will, at least, be remembered for its brazen video game parodies, over-the-top set pieces and outrageous weaponry, rather than being a poor man's GTA. This, in itself, is a certifiable step in the right direction.

    Roundabout is simply overflowing with personality, offering the best bad acting around and clever missions that even make the aggravating city exploration worth plodding through.
    • 76 Metascore

    The game isn't quite as pick-up-and-play friendly as Temple Run, requiring more finger agility due to the constant switching between lanes, but once you get started it can be just as difficult to put down.

    FTL did the punishingly difficulty space-faring genre better last year, but for that type of experience on the go Star Command is your best bet.

    It's a game best played in short bursts, since setting train deliveries only takes a few minutes compared to the longer wait for the trains to actually reach their destinations.
