    Where others have merely replicated, Pixelbite has managed to innovate with its polarity boost mechanics, and it's a game that deserves a place on any racing fan's phone.

    While Midnight Carnival ends too soon, it's a smile-inducing side trip that's worth downloading on your PSP or PSP Go.

    If you can tolerate the ever-so-slightly weird experience of playing this jingling, festively tuned game in the New Year, then Bubble Season will give you a pretty satisfying mental workout once you've progressed past the early stages.

    We don't condone abusing animals, but we still recommend Hackycat for its intense touchscreen play, power-ups (rainbows are a godsend) and lighthearted presentation.

    It may not be the deepest strategy game on the App Store, but fans of other card-battling heavyweights such as Rage of Bahamut will feel right at home in Spellstorm's world. There's a huge variety of creature cards to collect and evolve, a generous campaign to work through, and a far more engaging world to explore in comparison to the competition. It won't convert any genre naysayers, but card strategy fans are in for an unusually high quality treat here.

    If anything, Fish Out of Water! proves that oftentimes, the simplest ideas fuel the best games. We've yet to decide where it ranks among Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, but one thing is certain, you'll be hooked.

    Sophisticated it ain't, but if you can stomach the subject matter and the gentle nudges towards the in-app purchase store, this is as fine a way to kill a ten minute wait as any other.

    It's something a little bit different, it's beautifully crafted, and unquestionably entertaining for a time.

    Where the game falters (and it's minor, really) is the repetition that comes from grinding and the somewhat lengthy load times between missions. But if you cut your virtual teeth on the likes of Smash TV and Total Carnage, Gun Bros 2 should find its way onto your favorite device, maybe longer than expected, considering Glu plans to add more MODS and vehicles in future updates.

    World War Z crashed on us once and there appears to be an issue among some Android players, but by and large, it's an impressively-made shooter and collect-a-thon that manages to avoid the dreaded movie game curse. You'll have to pay $4.99 to download it, and we feel it's worth the money, especially if you're in need of a zombie fix.

    Monster-splattering fun. Sure, it plays like countless games that have come before it, but this action fest will keep you glued to the iPhone for hours, thanks to its addictive combat, detailed visuals and dramatic score. Three bucks well spent.

    The gameplay offers a few tricks up its sleeve, like with the mugging system and unscrewing the car radios out of vehicles for bonus cash. The presentation appears to be top notch, without missing any steps during its translation to the PSP. And the extras come aplenty.

    Throw in a very addictive Survival mode, leaderboards, in-game achievements and 3D models of each pistol, machine gun and sniper rifle, and Overkill 2 contains plenty of appealing features that help make it one of the coolest freemium titles.

    Overall, it's a lot of fun, especially as you unlock achievements and post high scores through Game Center, but you'll need a certain level of patience to deal with constant restarts that make iStunt 2 more of a stop and go experience; it definitely puts a damper on the action.

    Don't let Cyto get lost in the noise of the brasher physics puzzlers on the App Store. It may have its moments of frustration, ones where you feel the game is working against you just a little more than is strictly fair, but this is still one of the finest new games you can get for your mobile this week, and we want to see more of its kind in 2013.

    The presentation hooked us from the beginning. The simplistic and mostly black and white graphics take us back to the Atari 2600 days, and the spacey music does a great job lulling us into a somewhat relaxed state.

    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.

    Despite its unconventional title and content, Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ is probably destined to be a big sleeper hit for the Nintendo DS. With off the wall characters, lots of shooting and amusing takes on old fairytales, this game belongs in your collection.

    Most of the fun, therefore, comes from trying to gather each bit of scrap as quickly as possible, paying close attention to a board's layout and narrowly missing dangerous electric currents while crashing through force fields.

    Had there been more levels, Dark Void Zero would've been unbeatable.

    Ultimately, the price is RayStorm's biggest issue. We can debate the game's overall quality, we think it's quite good, but at the end of the day, it's a tough shooter to recommend with such a high barrier to entry. A satisfying interstellar trek, but one that comes with sticker shock.

    Despite its repetitive nature and free-to-play purchase system, OMG: TD! Is nevertheless a great addition to the genre, and a fun time-waster to boot. It sure beats going to a second-rate toga party.

    Like all of Adult Swim's games, Velocirapture is unashamedly what it is: a simple and entertaining game that doesn't take itself too seriously, and knows how to inject some much-needed, knowing fun onto the App Store.

    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.

    The shooting and sports action should be more than suitable to your needs, and with the label Konami Classics Series established before Arcade Hits, that can only mean that the company's just getting started.

    The point of the matter is that Sega Rally Revo brings the series back to life without dumping what made it so damn crucial in the first place.

    The game holds up surprisingly well, a true testament to its greatness, but the lackluster audio and high price lessons the appeal.

    If you have a fascination with the Old West or even remotely liked last year's release of Gun, then Gun Showdown should be added almost immediately to your game collection. Its gameplay is still riveting and awfully bloody, just the way I like it, and the presentation has been handled well. Grab yourself a dusty hat and hit the trails.

    One of the better PSP games to come out this year, a trailblazing flight action game that doesn't let up on the gas. It stays true to the arcade roots while also creating a little something new, and it ranks amongst Planet Moon's best works.
