    Because of its high difficulty bar, Jet Car Stunts 2 certainly isn't for everyone. If you're a racing fan up for a real challenge though - or you don't mind spending a few hours perfecting runs on the trickiest levels - this one's well worth taking for a spin.

    It's fair to say we've seen this sort of gameplay before in Candy Crush, but King has done a great job of modifying things to ensure that Farm Heroes Saga isn't as greedy a money-making machine. You'll get quite a bit of gameplay from it for no charge whatsoever, and the additional boosters and other goodies might just encourage you to stick around a little longer.

    Joe Danger Infinity may not be the touchscreen revolution that the first game was, but it's still a marvelous one nevertheless.

    For a dollar, it's hard to go wrong with this new themed take on Ski Safari. If you've played the original to death, and you're not a big fan of the cartoon series, there's not a lot to tempt you back into paying again, but for everyone else this is a welcome fresh take on a much-loved mobile classic.

    What it lacks in long-term replay value, Simian.Interface more than makes up for in inventiveness.

    The game's influences are pretty clear, but it's also got a few twists that make it very much its own game. Combine this fun gameplay with some of the neatest artwork and audio we've seen in a free-to-play game for some time, and you suspect the developers at No Monkeys are about to land themselves a pretty good haul.

    Although it's too familiar for its own good, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is a fine conclusion for the series, at least for the time being. With a fresh story, solid presentation and plenty of puzzles and challenges, this is one mystery that doesn't wear out its welcome.

    Pako is a unique and exciting car chase simulator that you'll pick up and play and forget to put down until you're proficient. Yes, it can be hard to get the hang of, and there simply isn't much to it, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a more addictive game out there right now -- of course, beyond the likes of Timberman.

    Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen is another fantastic release from Square Enix that works just as well as a mobile RPG as it does as a DS release.

    Godus is a fun simulation game. For a free download, it gives you a lot of value and is a very deep experience. Its slow pace and premium add-ons might turn some people off, but it is still a very solid title.

    While it lacks a plot, it's a fun title that you can pick up and start playing immediately.

    80 Days is a colorful and stylized look at a classic tome that places a new twist on an otherwise familiar game type. It's well worth your time, especially if you're looking for something a little more "out of the box" when it comes to mobile gaming.

    Micromon is one of the slickest and best examples of what you can do with this kind of premise, and much closer to the idealized Pokemon games we've all clamored for over the heads.

    Spellfall is a unique and addicting puzzle game. Its only downside are the in-game purchases. If you can look past that, and have some patience, you'll have a great time.

    While the Star Wars license is a tempting one to buy into, Star Wars: Commander isn't exactly up to snuff, especially if you're looking to play on the cheap. Perhaps future updates can lessen the price-gouging and it can blossom into a truly rewarding F2P experience.

    Surprisingly, Gameloft's Spider-Man Unlimited is a decent runner with a progression system and narrative tiers that allow it to transcend its status as F2P clone that you've seen millions of times over. In fact, with future updates, it may even continue to improve.

    Beach Buggy Racing is a lighthearted and fun racing game. It's very similar to Mario Kart, but its lack of multiplayer holds it back from being great.

    This is a quick, simple, and clean way to enjoy a fantastic card game on the go, and while it may be a far cry from the Game Boy Color version released so many years ago, it's a great start and an option that you'll want to choose if you want to reignite your love for the game or simply get started with it -- and besides, it's free!

    If you enjoy South Park or even pinball in general, these are an awesome couple of tables you'll undoubtedly want to spend plenty of time with.

    Terra Battle will open a lot of eyes for those who decide to download it. It has a good story and a lot of options available with more on the way, and despite its faults, you should still give it a look.

    Length is another issue. You'll finish Star Wars: Cantina in a couple of hours.

    You can play Frontline Commando without coughing up a penny, and we think you'll enjoy the game's arcade style action. If anything, it's a great way to relieve stress.

    Bottom line, a lot of attention (perhaps too much) went into making the cats look impressive, and thankfully, they are. You can see a personality in their eyes that most virtual pet games lack, and before long, you may even begin to think about the animal throughout the day as if it were real.

    Our only complaint involves a noticeable lack of imagination when it comes to stage design, where each level begins to look the same, with similar enemies and hazards. If anything, cybertime played things too safe instead of letting its creative juices flow.

    A good but not exceptional game. Definitely worth playing because we feel it's one of the more intriguing titles on the App Store, but just a step short of being one of the year's best.

    Ultimately, this could have been the definitive Tekken. As it stands, Namco Bandai will have to settle with having a good video game, by no means a bad thing, and if all you plan to enjoy is multiplayer, raise the score another half star.

    The deep single player component, in-game shop and multiplayer will keep you putting for weeks, and with the possibility of downloadable content, perhaps even longer. Not the most casual golf title on the market, but all things considered, definitely one of the best you'll find on a handheld.

    It's mindless to a fault, where eventually, you just want the mission over with. At the same time, this is exactly the type of experience hardcore DW fans want, and for these people, NEXT delivers.

    There's little about Virtua Tennis 4 that'll surprise longtime fans, making this entry feel like more of the same. Yes, it comes with Vita exclusive bonuses, but you'll quickly grow tired of them and fall back on intense volleys and furious cross court smashes. To that end, World Tour Edition falls short of an ace, but still manages to hold serve.

    Infiltrator provides a small slice of the big budget experience on a portable device, and there's a wonderful sense of satisfaction that comes from cutting through a small band of soldiers. It also helps that it's easy on the eyes and presents a decent story.
