    It's not perfect, but it's a treat for players looking to feed their PSPs with a quality game.

    In the face of so much delightfully clever level design, it's easy enough to brush aside any niggles about the game. Icycle's colorful, clever and a great example of just how far a little imagination can go in the world of indie mobile development.

    Gunslugs is a fun throwback that joins the already impressive Orangepixel lineup. Regardless of which iOS or Android-powered device you own, there's quite a bit to love about this twitchy blast-a-thon.

    Toshio Iwai has captured this very special desire, our need to express ourselves... Silky smooth to the touch, Electroplankton tantalizes the senses. [JPN Import]

    The inclusion of both a fighting game and a brawler is the best of both worlds, as players can switch off between the two and have hours of fun knocking people out. The Wi-Fi option is superb, allowing a friend to jump in the fun at anytime (provided they own a PSP and a copy of the game).

    The best part of the game are the job classes. Final Fantasy III was the first of the series to feature job changing, which helps the replayability aspect of the game.

    In a way, Get Outta My Galaxy! is somewhat of a tease, as it's the closest we'll get to playing Super Mario Galaxy on the iPhone, though it's unfair to hold this App to such lofty standards. Instead, appreciate this game for what it is: one heck of a good time.

    When you finally succeed in surmounting the insane difficulty level, the sense of accomplishment you get ultimately makes the game an enjoyable experience.

    It's a sweet game overall, thanks in part to the user-friendly touch controls. The story is forgettable and it's a shame that Chillingo released an HD version for the iPad (instead of making it universal), but we still had fun navigating through each stage.

    This is one of those games that appears easy but requires a bit of skill and patience to master, despite the user-friendly controls.

    For sheer throwaway fun, it's hard to go wrong with Arcade Ball. It's not the most sophisticated gaming experience you'll ever have, but it is surprisingly addictive. In other words, give it a go. And then maybe just one more go...

    It's just a well developed and deep adventure game that does its genre as well as the legendary series justice.

    There's a chance you'll dislike DrawRace 2, since sketching routes takes a backseat to hitting the gas and steering the car. It also doesn't help that your finger obscures the racing line, forcing you to rely on instinct; you eventually get a feel for it. Racing strategists, on the other hand, will happily dive into DrawRace 2 and play this sucker for months.

    Unfortunately, it's a fairly short-lived experience. You can beat the game in roughly an hour, but on the positive side, multiple routes will keep you coming back for more; case in point, we didn't reach the Blue-Marine level during the first play through.

    A cool and affordable brainteaser that'll keep you busy for hours. Download it immediately and find the lost Ark. Just don't let it melt your face.

    The PSP version of Chinatown Wars is still superior, due to the less clumsy controls and included soundtrack. However, if an iPhone is all you have, this definitely doesn't feel like a second rate effort.

    It's one of the more unique games we've seen for 3DS and another fine addition to the handheld's downloadable library. VVVVVV lacks some flash, but more than makes up for this with hardcore play.

    Not only is it a blast to play, but its presentation is over-the-top and in your face. The music. The graphics. The combat. The SPOILERS!!!

    The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is an excellent addition to Nintendo's celebrated franchise and a great way to close 2009.

    Coign of Vantage is one of coolest games on the App Store, and you'll thoroughly enjoy seeing jumbles of pixels come together to make cats, hearts and joysticks.

    Taken for what it is, Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is a cool title containing bite-sized content with portable gamers in mind. That said, we doubt you'll find much to dislike.

    Manages to shine, and we strongly suggest downloading it, regardless of whether you're into the Evil Dead films. Kudos to Backflip Studios for respecting the license while at the same time delivering a highly entertaining experience.

    Radiation Island is one of the most value-packed titles on iOS right now, jam-packed with features, things to do, and all wrapped up in a gorgeous package to boot.

    A refreshing change of pace from all the runners and tower defense games populating the App Store, and the neat x-ray effects look cool.

    If you absolutely, positively hate Breakout, make a note to skip Nervous Brickdown entirely. However, if you could tolerate a few plays of it or are just experiencing it for the first time, this is a must-buy.

    It's not a complex title by any means, but it is a surprisingly moreish one that will challenge even those with the fastest fingers to do better with just one more go.

    Whether or not you should purchase the game depends on how big a fan you are. Of course, the app is a must buy for newcomers, since it's one of the iPhone and iPad's more enjoyable (and shamelessly violent) titles. Besides, it's only a buck.

    Clubhouse Games is an example of substance over style, and I love it. While the games won't win any awards for graphic achievement or soundtrack, they're still quite fun to play.

    To say Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy surprised us would be a huge understatement. This game, originally feared to be a dud, is one of the more impressive 3DS games you'll see. That said, we hope the publisher releases more Ace Combats in the years ahead.

    There's no question that Rivals at War 2084 represents a much improved experience over the original.
