    An immensely enjoyable action RPG.

    Despite a handful of technical hiccups, Anomaly 2 is everything fans of the previous games in the series would have asked for, and is a very easy sale for existing Anomaly nuts. Those who are put off by the typically static, reactive gameplay of the tower-defense genre, could do a lot worse than Anomaly 2 if they wish to discover what this gaming scene is really capable of.

    Although it's more difficult than its predecessor, there's plenty to love about Crashmo, from its wealth of puzzles to its cheery graphics and near limitless editing potential. A satisfying follow-up, this game belongs on every 3DS owner's system.

    Not a guarantee that it's a game for everyone, but rather a big fat A+ for Alphadream when it comes to Advanced Game Design. This game is the cream of the portable gaming crop, and you'll be really hard-ressed not to be taken in by at least one of it's plentiful charms.

    We love Pro Zombie Soccer. The sharp visuals and satisfying gameplay make it our newest guilty pleasure, as well as one of the most imaginative zombie titles in the App Store.

    Still, there's no getting away from the fact that Where's My Mickey? represents everything that players of the previous games have come to expect - bags of levels, lots of challenge, and enough replay value to ensure that you won't even smart at the cost of the additional level packs. That will be enough for most.

    Don't miss out on Planet Puzzle League for the DS. Its presentation may not suit everyone but it's really going to be hard arguing against buying a game because it's just not fashionable.

    It never feels limited, or that you've "done everything"; the game is designed in a such a dynamic and charming manner that while playing you're not only investing your efforts, but also being rewarded for coming back.

    Fans of Jungle Run can certainly look forward to another generous dollop of creatively crafted levels in Fiesta Run, and we're left largely impressed by this bright and breezy sequel. Not even a handful of minor niggles can stop this from being very easy to recommend to gamers of all tastes and ages.

    Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a sequel that not only outshines the original, but also does the free-to-play game system justice - a rare feat for apps these days.

    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.

    One of the App Store's best puzzle games. It's a familiar concept (Enigmo, another iPhone hit, springs to mind) that feels fresh, thanks to sharp visuals and most importantly, engaging play. The best part? No messy cleanup later.

    Vice City Stories could have used some story clean-up and some tweaking to make the lock-on system work better for the user. As is, however, it's a good piece of 80's fun wrapped around an already solid engine.

    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.

    An enormous amount of pre-planning is required to set up that perfect chain-reaction, and the intense excitement that accompanies the successful realization of your careful strategizing is both hypnotic and thrilling.

    Still, if you're happy to pay for an experience that genuinely charms and intrigues for a short time, you could do a lot worse than sneak this onto your mobile.

    Regardless of whether you played Luigi's Mansion, this sequel stands on its own merits, and in the process, became another fine entry in the growing 3DS library of quality titles in need of enthusiastic owners. Relish the experience.

    We cannot understate this: had Nintendo published Dream of Pixels in the 90s as some follow-up to Tetris, the publisher would have sold at least a million more Game Boys. It's that phenomenal.

    Charming, intuitive and highly entertaining, Scribblenauts Remix is without question one of the best games the App Store has to offer.

    Few iPhone and iPad games are as charming as Bumpy Road.

    Monument Valley is enjoyable in the same way the Mona Lisa is enjoyable, once you see it once the magic is over. Adding to this feeling is the complete lack of challenge and the short playtime of around an hour. There is no replay value what-so-ever, once the game is over it is over.

    Mega Run is a lovely game that oozes charm and will delight players of all ages. Even if you think you can't possibly bear to play another screen-tapping automatic runner, we're pretty sure you'll fall in love with Redford's adventure regardless.

    I'm simply astonished at the fact that Konami has created two of my favorite DS games in only a year apart from each other.

    A fun iPad title that's a sweet cross between tower defense and billiards, making it a smart pickup for gamers interested in destroying enemies with acute angles.

    Air Mail could've been exceptional, but as it stands, the game will just have to settle for being great, with beautiful art work, tight controls and fun exploration/time-based play.

    Some of the greatest iOS games lack drool-worthy visuals, and we're happy to say Rinth Island overcomes this graphical shortcoming with excellent head-scratching play, made even better with the addition of the editor. Just be sure to think before you press.

    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.

    It just goes to show that sometimes, it's the simplest of concepts that make a hit.

    Along with the great controls and the involving adventure that will keep you playing for hours at a time, the game also benefits from beautiful visuals that really bring out the best in the PSP.

    OK, so War Pinball looks and sounds outstanding, but how does it play? Perfect. In-game missions, smooth play and tight controls put it in a whole other league. The fact that it runs without a hitch with the ball zipping all over the place is impressive, no question.
