    Swords and Soldiers could just be the next best castle defense game on the App Store. But the gameplay balancing really needs some tweaking as does some of the difficulty.

    Some may complain that the price is too high and others may say that it's just too simple. What I say is that it's just good, clean fun.

    It features just enough challenge that will have you clamoring for more. The combination of strategy, challenge, and fun make this game an instant hit, one that will surely be added to that "what game should I get" list.

    Ultimately, Eternal Legacy by Gameloft is one of the most graphically pleasing RPG's on the appstore at the moment. It is a well made J-RPG that boasts umpteen hours of gameplay between the main quest and the side quests, even if those side quests are hard to find.

    Tiny Wings is a good game. But it's extremely raw when it comes to options such as being able to listen to your own music, and it also left out GameCenter on its initial launch. The gameplay is addictive, though, and the artwork isn't too shabby.

    Battle for Wesnoth is a solid turn-based strategy game that will continually be in development, a fact that I find some comfort in.

    A fun, good-looking, and fully-featured top-down racer that delivers on its premise.

    Let's Golf 2 is still a solid sequel to one of the best games on the App Store. While there are some errors and flaws with the overall game, I'm still having fun with it.

    Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. is one of the best dogfighting experiences on the iPhone, but it's still not enough to be the best we've ever seen. It's somewhat difficult and online multiplayer would be such an awesome feature. The storyline is very well done though, and the graphics were amazingly rendered.

    Traffic dodge games usually feel pretty generic as the majority do nothing to innovate or enhance the genre in any way. Fortunately, there are a few gems out there like Hit N'Run that take a chance and do something a little different.

    The use of multitouch is also quite creative, and it works really well in this situation.

    At first glance it looks like just another copycat, but dig a little deeper and you will find a complex game with much to offer.

    Seventeen years after its initial release, Secret of Mana remains the gold standard Action RPG.

    Seamlessly combining a strategic RPG, a puzzle and a turn based strategy game into one was not an easy task, but Axion Logic appears to have done just that with chronoSgear.

    Eco Punk is a very charming and light-hearted game that is great fun and hard to put down.

    As match-3 games go, Puzzle Quest 2 is king of the hill.

    Dead Space isn't a game that particularly stood out and isn't something that's a no-brainer Must Have in my eyes. The production values are high, and EA did a really nice job with this one. I just wasn't exactly addicted to it, and it never really grasped me from the start. But the playing atmosphere and graphics are phenomenal, and the game as a whole is quite professional.

    An extremely fun game. I would go right on ahead and give it that coveted Must Have award, but there are those small, nitpicky annoyances in there that prevent me from doing so.

    Minor shortcomings aside, Who's That Flying?! is a wonderfully fun game and an easy recommendation. I've been having a blast with it!

    Fans of dual-stick shooters, survival titles or Solomon's Keep will definitely want to pick this one up.

    9mm
    9mm includes some improved voice-acting, great online multiplayer, an interesting storyline, and an overall action-packed adventure that is sure to entice third-person shooter fans. Just note that the game isn't for everyone, and I personally thought the amount of language in this game was really unnecessary.

    The Blocks Cometh is an easy recommendation, both to new players as well as to those who previously bought the knock-off. The game is attractive, challenging and rewarding, and nails that just-one-more-time addictiveness factor that makes games easy to pick up and hard to put down.

    Can Knockdown 2 does everything a casual game should do: universal, GameCenter achievements, great graphics, and a simple gameplay mechanic. But, it does get old quickly, and there are only 12 achievements for you to work with.

    On the surface, Heavy Gunner appears to be a shallow shooter, with the dual-thumb cannons only a gimmick. Taking the plunge beyond that surface, however, reveals the game to be quite deep, full of choices and with great replay value.

    All things considered, Fight Night Champion is well worth your time and money, provided that you're willing to adjust to the learning curve and you're looking for a fighting game that rewards persistence and technique over lightning-fast blitzkrieg victories and ridiculous special moves.

    Overall, The Hero will have you clamoring for more as you will feel you need to save the city from more ill wills.

    Dungeon Defenders has potential, and it's a really fun game; there's absolutely no doubt about that. But I would love to see an improved interface and controls-mind you, they're not bad, but not good either-along with some better graphics.

    Luxor is another solid marble shooter, but we still have yet to experience a marble shooter that has captured our hearts forever.

    Rarely do games accommodate so many different styles of gameplay while maintaining a perfect balance, but EVAC pulls it off.
