    Twisty Hollow is just a solid game with a unique concept. Not game of the year material, perhaps, but a solidly entertaining puzzle game.

    Push the Box is also a dual victory: a cute, family-friendly game with interesting (albeit easy) and engaging puzzle design. A game worth playing, with piggies worth saving.

    00 Trials will make you howl in frustration, but when you finally conquer a challenge on your twentieth try, the feeling of elation is unmatched.

    While it's not terribly original, Fantastic Fish does what it does better than almost any other oceanic social game to date. Users of the most recent Apple hardware will probably deal with the loading much better than, say, 3GS users. But almost everyone will find something fun and worthwhile in Fantastic Fish. Definitely one worth reeling in.

    Despite its control issues, Bee Leader is a game I feel every iDevice owner should try. Like a honeycomb dripping honey, it oozes quality from nearly every facet.

    Ultimately, CityVille Hometown is exactly what it sounds like: a scaled-back version of CityVille that is specifically designed around the limitations of the iPhone. This makes for a mostly solid experience, that even boasts some improvements over the main version of the game.

    I don’t think Order of Souls is for the hardcore RPG player – the one who regularly buys Kemco’s games or has no qualms shelling out $15-$20 for the latest Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest port. But for the player who wants a casual RPG that doesn’t feel like it’s dumbed-down? Order of Souls is a great choice.

    Mega Dead Pixel is a formidable endless whatsit, and given its invisible entry fee, it's well worth giving a download. Just don't blame me when you start seeing falling pixels all over the place in your day-to-day life.

    In a game where even failure is surprisingly soothing, the emotional reward of success is worth chasing.

    As popular as the series is, some evolution needs to happen if it wants to have the long term staying power of a Mario or a Pac-Man. In Rio, we're starting to see the first glimmer of that evolution.

    Slingshot Racing is as smooth graphically as it is in its tether turning system, and it's well worth a spin into your app library.

    To be completely honest, Tap Tap Revenge Tour isn't tearing down any new walls. The game mechanics got tweaked, as did the graphics, and a pretty basic tour mode was added to extend playtime. This isn't so much a new game as it is an update of the same game that has been around since 2008.

    Can't Stop has that ephemeral quality that'll keep you hunched over your black mirror until the small hours, and you can't ask for much more than that.

    He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe is shallow and straightforward, but it's fun. In fact, it's the most fun you can have with He-Man outside of re-watching your grainy VHS collection or engaging in grownup He-Man roleplay.

    Combining the best elements of match-three, RPGs, and TCGs, Spirit Stones presents a hybrid pastime that does what so few social games do—plays like a game instead of a free-to-play business model.

    Maybe the slot machines are supposed to be a metaphor for all of the dice rolls, seen and unseen, that affect every fantasy RPG from Dungeons & Dragons to World of Warcraft. It's also possible that's a massive over-thinking, and the guys from Game Stew Studio just really like to hit the casinos on their days off. Regardless, Tower of Fortune is one to bet on for a pretty great time.

    Despite these problems, Monster Adventures is a lovely adventure title with some big ideas. If monster collecting and roguelike adventures are your bag, this is one to tame. Just take it slow and easy at first.

    Minor quibbles aside, Gunner Galaxies is still a solid shooter and an addictive spin on the Asteroids forumla. It can get repetitive in large doses, but for pick-and-play action it's just about perfect. It's a wonder the game is free.

    Color Zen is a rewarding experience from start to finish; I only wish that finish didn’t come so quickly.

    The Treasure Seekers of Lady Luck won’t blow your mind with originality, but it’s still a perfectly pleasant and fun way to pass a few hours. Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate’s life for thee.

    If you’re nutty about action / puzzle games, download Dungeon Link without delay. If you’re burnt out on Puzzle & Dragon and games like it, try poking at Dungeon Link anyway.

    Everything you loved about their previous effort is back, and the tables are even better than before. If you're a fan of video game pinball, it's time to soldier up; looks like you're going to war.

    If cruising through wave after wave of similar disposable baddies in order to reach a challenging boss sounds repetitive to you, than the game might not feel so super. But if you've grown up on arcade classics and are looking for a cheap way to relive the thrill of incredible combos, then this is a must buy.

    The gameplay is the thing here though, and it remains as addictive as before. Feel free to bump this review score up another half-star if you've never experienced reverse tower defense done right, and prepare to spend some of your free time fending off our would-be robot overlords even if you have.

    But even in the short time that it lasts, there’s no denying the fun that can be had from playing Doodle Kingdom, and it quickly becomes clear why JoyBits’ addictive gameplay formula has been so successful over the years.

    A simple game, but that's more of a strength than a weakness. It's simple enough to provide quick, painless matches on an iPhone in an idle moment, and there are enough different units to choose from in the battle mode to make playing against other players endlessly rewarding. Best of all, the option to fight against NPC goblins gives Clash of Clans a small edge over similar strategy games that rely almost entirely on player-versus-player combat.

    Interruptions aside, Joe Danger Infinity is packed with solid, colorful good times that should appeal to kids and adults. If you've had enough of the series, you'll be okay with putting Infinity back in the toy box.

    All Talk isn't perfect, and you're not going to be able to really enjoy it anywhere that's not quiet/private. Playing with strangers might make you self-conscious, depending on your personality, but there's no doubt that playing with your friends will make you rupture something laughing-unless you've all taken a vow to remain straight-faced and solemn for the remainder of your lives.

    If you’re a fan of the arcade classic, don’t hesitate on this purchase for a second.
