    All wishing aside, however, Crystal War is a beautiful, highly entertaining castle-vs-castle game, and one that I heartily recommend.

    There's really not much to the game, and the features are pretty much the same as any other Miniclip game: $0.99, GameCenter, and Retina graphics. And for those that downloaded iStunt, iStunt 2 is a welcome addition to the family.

    Transformers G1 is a solid turn-based strategy game, but it isn't perfect by any means.

    Brothers in Arms 2 is a step back from NOVA, that's basically all I have to say.

    100 Rogues has taken me by the heartstrings and drives me by them as if they were reigns. At work or anywhere else I've not been able to play, I've only looked forward to coming home and hunting Satan. I am thoroughly rapt and constantly hungry for more. After all, hunting Satan is hungry work.

    Follows the footsteps of both Backbreaker Football and Backbreaker Football II with a fun and addictive gameplay, great animations, and great character models. The UI and other graphical elements do need some work, and the GameCenter needs a bit of fixing up to do.

    Despite some shortcomings, Chop Chop Ninja is overall a fun game, a welcome entry to the App Store's mostly underwhelming line-up of ninja titles, and likely to be the last sleeper hit of 2009.

    While imperfect, it's a great game and highly entertaining.

    It's a far shot from Zombieville and there are parts that need to be addressed. But other than that, the developer did an ingenious work with the replay value, a factor that plays into almost all successful iPhone games.

    Ozone is a beautiful game crafted quite nicely.

    With that said, I enjoyed Fruit Ninja HD and can't wait to see what else they have in store.

    While there is some lack of replay value, the overall game was very much worth that $1.99, a price not too far away from the minimal $0.99 price tag.

    The addition of a real story laid out in comic book styling really adds to the experience.

    As ridiculous an idea as it sounds, Sword & Poker is a really fun game, and one that I find easy to recommend as a purchase.

    But Ozone is something different, and something that should be heard of.

    All of it is intriguing, interesting, and enjoyable; there's nothing like it on the App Store. It is a little repetitive though, and the graphics and animations really keep it back from being named one of the best on the App Store.

    If you're a fan of the dual-stick shooter or of zombie games in general, Alive 4-ever RETURNS should be at the top of your shopping list.

    Fruit Ninja is the perfect casual game that I thoroughly enjoyed. While there are minor problems I stated above, it's an overall solid appearance on the App Store and one that casual gamers shouldn't miss.

    It's cheap, filled with content, and looks really nice. Along with that, it comes packaged with 33 OpenFeint achievements, a lot more than the usual game.

    Twin Blades: The Reaping Vanguard is a great button-masher, and one of the prettiest games in the app store.

    Although there are no surprises for those familiar with this type of game, The Settlers does deliver where it is expected.

    The verdict: Land-A Panda is quite average. But the tantalizing price point and the cute graphics seem to balance out the average gameplay, along with the ton of content involved.

    Bottom-line, Children of Carnia is an enjoyable role-playing game, though it becomes occasionally tedious with its fetch quests and grinding.

    While the game is frustrating at times along with a poor user interface, Assassin's Creed II should mull you over for a couple of hours.

    No worries about losing pieces or counting up blocks as the computer does it all for you now even. I can practice new strategies, pick up hints from watching the computer play, all useful for real life games.

    A bloody good game and deserves your attention.

    In terms of visuals, I think they've set the bar for how iPad games should look, as the detail that went into this is just… inspiring.

    The Incident is unquestionably worthy of purchase and deserves not to be buried in the pile.

    The PvP mode is a nice addition to the game though, and I must say that it is one of the most interesting features I've seen in an RPG.

    Such quibbles aside, Thumpies is a roaring good time and well worth checking out.
