    Unlock the full game and have a blast. We certainly hope more (and free) levels are on the way.

    If you're looking for a good zombie fix this Halloween, Undead Knights should be on the top of your list. The addictive zombie-commanding action, multiplayer options and blood-soaked presentation will make you want to join this legion.

    Performance aside, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus is a razor-sharp sequel that delivers over-the-top cut scenes, special moves and pulverizing attacks. Final verdict: A quality on-the-go beat-em-up that should find its way into your Vita library.

    It has a few nagging issues that keep the welcome mat from being all wide open on the front doorstep, namely the lack of the block option or the ability to see the worlds around you. However, it is a rewarding adventure with an enriched battle system, mixed with upgradeable chi and adhoc/infrastructure support.

    With music lifted straight from the Metroid Prime games, Pinball is an absolute joy to listen to.

    Bean Boy is a fun and pretty addicting game. It is very easy for anyone to pick up and play. There is not much to keep you playing though as there is no extra content and the game tends to be a little too easy.

    The game plays quite well on PlayStation Vita, and provides a welcome change of pace in comparison to the rest of the launch lineup, that for the most part involves more action-oriented fare.

    Exhibition matches eventually get old, and Legacy lacks an addictive hook. For the money, though, Fight Night Champion is one of the most impressive iPhone games we've seen, and multiplayer (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth) should keep you punching for several hours, providing you find someone else with the game.

    That said, the game's presentation falls behind its counterparts, with music and imagery that seems a bit less magical than King's previous releases. This is ultimately a small knock on an otherwise addictive puzzler, one that'll keep players busy until their lives inevitably run dry.

    There's enough that's new about Tiny Death Star to make it worthy of note for even the most burned-out Tiny Tower fan, while at the same time remaining faithful to everything that made the original so horribly, horribly addictive. An accomplished remix by anyone's standards.

    A delightful trip through a macabre fun house full of blood and assorted horrors that should not be missed by anyone who enjoys playing games, that is, unless you're just sick of 2D Castlevania.

    Capitalizes on humanity's inherent love for a slightly aggravating puzzle that we secretly relish.

    CSR Racing isn't the best driving game on the App Store, but it's still one players should check out, especially if they're huge car fanatics. Now all we need is head-to-head online/offline multiplayer, and we'll be set.

    Once again, Atlus delivers an excellent operating game for DS.

    The FPS component of the game may not be thrilling in the early stages of the game, but the scope for experimentation in defenses make this a very compelling purchase from the very start.

    Small control and connection issues aside, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for the DS is the superior version.

    Even though most of the presentation and general gameplay hasn't changed much from previous Pokemon adventures, both HeartGold and SoulSilver have an adequate amount of content, online and off, to keep you exploring until the next sequel arrives.

    Despite slight confusion with the command system and occasionally lacking difficulty, the game is a well-oiled military machine that'll entertain you, particularly if you bring a few friends along for the ride.

    Manos: The Hands of Fate is a terrible movie, but it wound up being a solid video game.

    Super Hexagon punishes more than it rewards, but the adrenaline rush you get from playing far exceeds any mental anguish. Well, at least until you check out the best times on the Game Center leaderboards. Sobering, to say the least.

    MLB
    A nice debut for the line on the Sony PSP. It has its needs for improvements but what you get here is still a focused and thrilling game of portable baseball done right. And you can't really ask for more than that.

    The absence of online multiplayer knocks Ridge Racer 3D down a peg, a ton of recycled content overshadows the new stuff and occasionally, the action slows down when too much happens on screen. Those nitpicky complaints aside, this is one of the best games the young 3DS has to offer.

    If you like the genre the game is a no-brainer. If you're merely puzzle-curious, Exit would be an excellent game to test out your taste for it.

    Unlike the disastrous Resident Evil: Mercenaries Vs. on iPhone, this standalone arcade style shooter comes fully loaded with 30 missions, a deep skill system and sharp looking visuals. Most importantly, it's one head blasting good time.

    Even taking those issues into account, KingHunt represents excellent value for money. It's clearly been a huge labor of love for all those involved, and it's about as good as we've come to expect from this niche genre of mobile gaming. Perhaps a future update will bring just a little more variety in combat.

    This wonderful game belongs in your collection, regardless of whether you're new to the franchise or an experienced player that needs a fighting fix on the go.

    Namco has done great things with Tekken 6 on the PSP. It's enjoyable both alone and with friends, it looks and sounds terrific and has the one thing most portable fighting games lack, and that's enjoyable gameplay.

    Contra 4 is a wonderful throwback to the Contra days of old, a jam-packed blastathon guaranteed to get your blood pumping. Grab your gun and let's hit it, before you get stomped, tattooed, hanged and killed.

    Yes, Mini Ninjas wasn't the game we expected, but it's still a quality effort that compliments its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 counterpart. If you're in search of a runner that offers something different, this is $0.99 well spent.

    All this praise aside, the game's commentary comes up way short.
