    The islands share rules, objects, and ideas, but they also build upon each other to introduce fresh concepts every level. This helps stretch the 60 stages to their maximum: you and the castaway will continually encounter something new, challenging, and timeless.

    Solara definitely isn’t a game with a lot of complexity, but there’s a certain charm in the way all of its parts work together.

    While the first episode may be short, Degrassi manages to make up for its length with great writing and solid replayability. It's the kind of game you can enjoy whether or not you're a fan of the show. That said, if you are a Degrassi fan, the game is a virtual no-brainer.

    Being a jack-of-all-trades usually makes you a master of none, but 9 Innings Pro Baseball 2013 manages to make this approach work. If you aren't intimidated by the sheer number of options, it's worth a free download (for the ad-supported version) to dive in and explore.

    If Hearthstone or Magic have worn out their welcome and you’re looking for something with a little more oomph, give this a try instead.

    Nightmares From the Deep: The Cursed Heart is kind of like the old pirates of yore: What it lacks in finesse, it makes up for in brute force. If refinement and attention to detail are a priority, then it will probably leave you cold. But if what you're after is a big pile of hidden object scenes and you're not too particular about how it's all tied together, this tale of tragedy on the high seas will fit the bill nicely.

    Bears vs. Art is a charming, polished, and lovable addition to Halfbrick’s oeuvre.

    If you're looking for a 3D runner with a distinctive visual style and thrilling level design, Pitfall! will more than satisfy. However, with an upgrades system that proves to be more frustrating than fun, I can't help but feel that Activision missed a huge opportunity to place itself as the absolute "best 3D runner on the App Store".

    Baby Nom Nom is a cute and cuddly way to spend a few hours or perhaps a few minutes on the way to work. Just don't expect it to last forever. Like the rice left in Baby's food bowl, it'll be gone before you know it. Downloadable levels, anyone?

    If you’ve grown tired of swapping gems and yearn for a fresh take on matching games, Jolly Jam is time well spent.

    Tetris needs no introduction, and this is the only version without a D-pad and A and B buttons that’s worth playing. It’s also free. For these reasons it’s an easy recommendation, even if the original’s charm has been replaced by neon and marketing.

    An absolute must play-it's just that there's more we'd love to see them do with it.

    There's more to Leo's Fortune than just those good looks everyone's quick to point out, though they’re definitely the primary draw. Whether for the gameplay or the gorgeousness, this one definitely gets a recommendation.

    The interface is a little clunky, the two-dimensional characters are sappy, and it takes a little while to get to The Good Stuff, but none of that's kept me from thoroughly enjoying Lies of Astaroth's spin on card battles.

    There are tons of enemies to take down, and they're all goofy and just a touch creepy. The game's events are fun to follow thanks to decent writing, and even Slimer makes an appearance without getting up in anyone's face with stupid antics. If you ain't afraid of no ghost, give Ghostbusters a try. Alternatively, you can just fire up your old NES Ghostbusters game. Horrifying!

    Is the fun of an RPG putting in the work to get the loot, or the loot itself? Epic Island is for the person who believes the latter.

    Though the heroes’ brainless wanderings can get frustrating, SwapQuest is a satisfying and unique way to spend a few hours.

    If you've been looking for a game that runs up a bunch of numbers that you can shove in your friends' faces, you could do far worse.

    Aside from its lack of any real innovation, the only nagging problem with The Simpsons: Tapped Out is its insistence that you connect to EA's Origin service, even if it's only used for online features such as visiting your friends' parallel Springfields for daily bonuses.

    Tennis in the Face is one to play, and then replay for a higher score, and then replay for a different higher score, and then replay to serve tennis balls at the 10tons crew in the final level, as payback for all the hours you're bound to lose to this ace.

    Smash Hit takes a bit of getting used to - it is, for instance, difficult to tell where your character's hit box is, which makes collisions unpredictable at times - but once you're on your way, it's a soothing experience.

    Dwarven Den is a free-to-play game, and its hard currency is difficult to come by if you don't want to buy it. When you die, you have the option of reviving on the spot for ten gems, which is a significant quantity. Otherwise, you're forced to start over again from square one. Oh, the agony of being a dwarf!

    Greedy Grub has a worm or two, but the overall experience is charming even if you only engage with the game for a few minutes a time. Go ahead and hug a slug.

    Frogger Decades is the sort of game that Frogger fans have been waiting years for. Heck – maybe even decades. But it's also a game that offers up a tremendous amount of challenge, so the easily frustrated need not apply. Still, if you've got the skills and the patience needed, Frogger Decades simply doesn't disappoint.

    Keeping in mind that Pirates of the Caribbean: Master of the Seas is free, it's a great companion to the recent DVD release. The "quests" are bit dull, but the mixture of duels, island building, and leveling up make for a pleasing time waster. It's an app worthy of anyone's mobile device, but Pirates fans should be especially pleased.

    Don't let the game's stinginess scare you away, however. Banana Kong is a great-looking endless runner with a fun soundtrack and addictive "one more time!" gameplay. It might make you go (wait for it … wait for it) ape.

    Even with its imperfections, Final Fantasy Record Keeper is a game you’ll gladly sink hours into as you fine-tune your party and play around with abilities and equipment.

    Despite a small misstep with ad placements, Idol Words pulls it together and provides a simple but enjoyable word game experience. Even though it doesn't change the Boggle-style formula very much, having several ongoing asynchronous games is reason enough to give it a try.

    Don’t let the whole match-3/RPG hybrid thing turn you off: Knights of Puzzelot is definitely a good time and can be quite difficult to stop playing. Some freemium shenanigans get in the way at times, but they’re not significant enough to ruin the fun.

    It's something that really gives you that feeling of a game that's been 30 years in the making.
