    For those looking for some action won't find it here; you're better off in space with Gameloft's NOVA or fighting Italian soldiers in Assassin's Creed II.

    The Asphalt series are getting old. That fact is quite evident in this review, and it just doesn't feel any different from Asphalt 5.

    I'm totally bewildered as to why they didn't include online multiplayer, why they didn't add some more control options, and why they decided to take customization out.

    If you just can't live without some sort of sci-fi themed dual-stick shooter where you kill robots and there are different maps, it might be just the thing for you. But for my money, there are more exciting experiences available in this genre on the iOS platform.

    If you never played the game before, are looking for a classic FPS, and already have DOOM and Wolf 3D then you will have a lot of fun with this as well.

    But once you start to get frustrated, thwarted, and far into the career mode, your appeal to the game just doesn't last. It's a game with potential, but it needs some substantial updates to reach it.

    I liked the first one and was looking for some improvement in terms of replay value, but I didn't exactly get it.

    Robot Rampage looks good, sounds good, but plays mediocre.

    It really is sad that Splatterhouse did not receive wider recognition during its time, because it was a good game for its time. Hell, probably even a great one. However, really all side-scrolling beat-em-up games boil down to the same essential gameplay mechanics, and this game is those mechanics at their most basic.

    After a few hours, I can only describe the experience as boring and repetitive.

    While the accelerometer is quite fluid, many of the games key controls are hard to access.

    Ultimately, Black Space is a fair title, but not up to snuff with either Galaxy On Fire or Star Pagga. If you've already completed those titles and you're looking for something new, Black Space may be worth your time.

    I love Pulse: Volume One for one reason, and that's because it's unique.

    The AI is slightly under the AI for FIFA 10.

    Blade Master is not the App Store's next killer RPG; it just doesn't have the polish necessary to reach such lofty heights. But there's depth to be found, a lengthy quest to be had, and it nails the RPG bases.

    On the whole, Blimp Attack is a good game, but it can get repetitive.

    No real mind-benders here; just a lot of pushing stones, stepping on pressure plates and the like.

    I wasn't too thrilled with my game experience, and it's failed to really hook me in.

    It is ABSURD that a game costing $4.99 should be so bogged down by in-app purchase, and all but require you to spend yet more of your money on expendible items.

    Bottom line is, there's little to no improvement.

    A lengthy experience at a reasonable price.

    I had a few moments of fun with it, and it definitely shows the progress Namco has taken on the iPhone. And above all else, I'm more than glad to see only one DLC item in there; one that is reasonably priced and makes sense.

    Ultimately, Super Mega Worm is an enjoyable experience after the initial accommodation-period for the controls. While the upgrades provide incentive for replayability, the rather one-dimensional nature of the game keeps it at a "worth a look" recommendation. And remember to recycle kids. The Wyrm is watching you.

    In summary, if you want a dual-stick shooter, you can do a lot better than Pirate's Treasure.

    I wasn't exactly pleased with the generic material of the game, but it's an overall, well-done game.

    Overall, Cubed Rally Racer is just an okay game; casual gamers may find it a bit frustrating and ultimately quit for some other game.

    Deep Deep Dungeon is solid and succinct, a tightly wound and complete casual RPG game. But when I want to play a game of this sort I am far more likely to reach either for Sword & Poker or its sequel than I am for this.

    As a dual-stick shooter, Catacombs fails because it's not frantic enough. As an action game, it fails because the combat isn't very interesting. As an RPG, it fails because it's not deep enough. As an adventure and a game of exploration, it fails because there's no incentive to progress and nothing new to discover as you go.

    Angry Birds has a lot going for it, but is fundamentally flawed in execution.

    I enjoyed Super Turbo Action Pig; I love the name, game, and artwork. Gameplay is a bit unoriginal, but The Joystick Generals did a solid job of reinventing gameplay that hasn't exactly done well on the iPhone.
