    Asides from how Tiny Guardians looks, I can honestly say that I’ve never played a game quite like this before. I can’t recommend it strongly enough. It’s a unique spin on tower defense that’s easily worth the price of admission.

    An excellent follow-up to an already-great game. It's incredibly fun and goofy, the new gameplay modes add a lot of extra enjoyment, and things are even more stylish than before. If there were an online multiplayer mode this would pretty much be perfect, but even without it, this game is still totally worth owning.

    Puckerz! isn't exactly the deepest of games, but that's more of a strength than a weakness. It's a fun, fast-paced, and always seems to stay challenging enough to keep players enthralled. This is a perfect example of just how brilliant basic can be.

    Make no mistake, VOEZ is a rhythm game that’s well worth playing. It’s clever, fun, challenging (even if it can be a bit too challenging at times), and is oddly pretty in its simplicity – and what little illustration artwork there is looks great.

    Stretch Dungeon showcases everything that’s good about mobile gaming – bright and breezy, challenging and confident, and perfectly designed for either quick-snatch single goes or much deeper play sessions.

    When you do eventually reach its conclusion, you’re going to feel a little bittersweet about the whole thing. Fortunately, Sorcery! 4 offers more than enough different paths to pursue, giving you plenty of reason to start over again. There’s also that delightful sense of satisfaction in knowing that you’ve played through one of the finest narrative experiences of gaming in recent years. And I don’t just mean mobile gaming, either.

    With the few small issues aside, perhaps what’s most notable is that Suicide Squad: Special Ops is completely free. There are no energy systems, no gates aside from level progression, and not a single IAP to be had anywhere in the game. You can play for as long as you can survive, or as long as you’re willing to start over. Suicide Squad delivers a powerful hit, and you don’t have to drop a dime to get in on the action.

    Starting with 80 levels (and the promise of more to come), Where's My Perry? is a triumph in every sense of the word. It tactfully weaves the humor and appeal of the show into the Where's My Water? formula, all the while providing content that won't have fans of the first game crying copycat. Developers tasked with creating tie-in games, take note: This is how it's done.

    Great Big War Game is also fairly unstable, which is never a good thing. Playing on a first generation iPad, it crashed dozens of times. Fortunately a reliable autosave system meant I never lost any progress. Still, this instability is an unnecessary hassle.

    Follow the Rabbit is one of the best physics puzzler games I've played in a good long time and, as a fan of the genre, it hit pretty much every note I could want it to. The catharsis that comes with finishing that last puzzle is palpable, and the means that lead to that end are a whole lot of fun. Just try not to drive yourself crazy in an effort to nab every single coin.

    It’s extremely difficult to be all things to all people, even if we’re only talking about one relatively narrow genre of gaming, but Solstice Arena does the best job yet of pulling it off. If you’ve never played a MOBA but always wanted to give it a try, this one is an excellent way to take that first step.

    If you're a fan of both puzzle and word games, there's a whole lot to like about Puzzlejuice. It takes two well-known styles of gameplay and combines them into something new.

    Granted, a hardcore baseball sim is a niche product, but it's hard to see iOOTP 12 having any real challengers in its corner of the mobile gaming world. Fans of the grand old game are going to want this on their iPhones or iPads for all those times they can't be at the ballpark.

    While I didn’t time my playtime, it certainly felt like episode 3 was the longest episode yet. I am not sure if that is because it actually clocks in as the longest, or if there was so much going on it simply felt like I had been playing for awhile. Regardless, for as long as the game felt, I was never bored at any point during my playthrough.

    It’s worth mentioning that this is not a game for younger kids, as enticing as it might be, as it does have plenty of violence, some semi-questionable language, and some implied sexuality. For everyone else with even the slightest manga/anime leanings, you’ll want to give One Piece Treasure Cruise a shot.

    Overall, Man of Steel is probably one of the better – if not the best – Superman games we've ever seen (barring crossover/ensemble pieces, such as Injustice: Gods Among Us and other Justice League fare). It's by no means perfect, and can still irritate at points, but is still – put simply – super. You just have to make sure you have an equally super piece of hardware to run it on.

    Plants vs. Zombies Heroes has to walk a fine line balancing between the expectations of its franchise and its genre while also offering enough freshness to stand apart from them, and the fact that it does it with so much style deserves applause.
