    Puzzle Craft is a wonderful example of how to attract the casual, the hardcore, the cynical, and even the most bitter cash-for-progress gamers of the world together. I am addicted to an empire-building game, and if you've read even a fraction of my previous polemic against the genre, you will know by now that this is the highest accolade I could ever bestow on the game.

    Uplink is a sublime game that hasn't aged a bit, paying the same tribute to the mainstream perception of Hollywood hacking culture that persists today through those same fondly remembered films.

    Control niggles aside, have no doubt that this pocket RPG represents an impressive landmark for mobile gaming. In achieving so many triumphs,

    Granted, there are few portable Resident Evil games to choose from, but Revelations is by far the best, and it's perhaps even better than some of the console entries. Capcom stumbled, but still managed to offer a thoroughly enjoyable romp filled with intense monster blasting fun, along with dump trucks full of gore and some unexpected plot twists along the way. A must for all 3DS owners.

    You don't often see free games of such high quality on the App Store, and when you do, a bunch of annoying ads partially ruin the experience. There is no such problem with Cordy Sky, and we applaud SilverTree Media for reintroducing us to such a charming hero while at the same time making Doodle Jump a fond memory.

    Anyone who's played and loved Commander Video's earlier adventures won't hesitate to download Bit.Trip.Run, and they're absolutely right to do so. Not played any of the other games? You're in for quite a treat, and that comparatively high download price shouldn't stand in your way for a moment.

    We had an absolute blast playing Fieldrunners 2, and recommend the title to any tower-defense fan. Even those who typically shy away from the genre will find a very different, and very enjoyable strategy title here.

    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a great pairing that makes for an addictive game. Once you start, you will be immediately drawn into the story and won't be able to put the 3DS down. Fans of both series will be very satisfied, and should demand a sequel. Well done overall.

    Stupendous mobile game graphics, a powerful collection of weapons and equipment, mowing down zombies and seeing their heads splatter, affordably-priced in-app cash and gold, surprisingly responsive first-person controls.

    Apocalypse Max doesn't break new ground in the 2D platform/shooting genre, but its high-level of polish puts it right up there with the best iOS has to offer. You can't call yourself a zombie fan without downloading this entertaining game.

    It's unashamedly targeted at the hardened puzzle gamer who fancies themselves a cut above the rest, and who tires of trudging through hand-holding levels in order to get at the meat of a game. If you're up for that challenge, one of your favorite games of 2012 awaits you.

    If you own a PS Vita, you owe it to yourself to get this game, especially if you like action RPGs.

    Put very simply, Inferno+ is everything we want from a twin-stick shooter: gorgeous visuals, a thumping soundtrack, varied gameplay and an intriguing twist on the genre. Even by Radiangames' high standards, this is a fantastic game.

    Whether or not this is the best mobile RTS on the App Store is up for debate, but one thing's certain, it's quite excellent all the same.

    We fell in love with Soldier vs. Aliens, and think it's one of the best free iOS titles on the App Store. Grab that Railgun, strap on some armor and get ready to fight. Aliens, prepare to eat lead.

    All of this very compelling gameplay is wrapped up in some of the smartest looking - and sounding - environments we've enjoyed on our mobiles, and the story is a hoot. Throw in the trademark Gilbert humor, and you've got a mix that will prove irresistible for any fan of match-three gaming.

    Pixld's a puzzle game that ticks all of our boxes and we think it will tick yours too. It's a tightly designed, breathtaking simple but addictive design concept, and it will challenge and entertain even the keenest of puzzle addicts for a long time to come.

    Those minor complaints aside, Star Wars Pinball is a wonderful extension of Zen Studios' outstanding games, and even non-fans will enjoy everything it has to offer.

    Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition is one of the best RPGs you'll be able to find on iOS (or elsewhere for that matter) and for $10 you're delivered a ridiculous amount of content in a gorgeous package. If you've never tried it out, now is the best time to give it a whirl.

    Despite some ridiculous car prices, loading issues and teeth-gnashing A.I. difficulty, it's a fun ride from beginning to end. Don't hesitate to catch some air with this one.

    It's a triumph for those who favor experiential gaming over the challenge of eking out ever-smaller, incremental degrees of satisfaction from more skill-based titles.

    WWE SuperCard is a fun and addicting game that is easy to pick up and play. It's so addictive that you can't play just one match, and you will want to keep playing until you find your favorite superstar(s). Hopefully, 2K Games releases a versus mode in a future update.

    While certain elements of Kingdom Conquest 2 may be stronger than others, combined they result in one of the most intriguing strategy games to be released on the App Store. It's packed full of content, offers plenty of variety in its gameplay, and the real story of the game - the impact of player interactions - is something we'll only discover in time.

    Format release concerns aside, Dual Destinies is a smartly-crafted, fantastic-looking Phoenix Wright game that you'd do well to pick up, especially since the first episode is free.

    The game doesn't quite represent perfection as we found the difficulty level a little spiky, and the shuriken elements sit awkwardly with the gentler strategy found elsewhere. Nevertheless, Hundreds is a must-have title for anyone who craves something fresh from the App Store, and represents a fine start for puzzle gaming in 2013.

    You may already have more than enough mobile racers to keep you busy, but make sure you add GT Racing 2 to your library before settling on a favorite. It's fast, it's free-to-play - with a pretty fair cash system too - and it looks amazing. Go pedal to the metal on this one.
