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

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

    If you enjoy fast-paced addictive gameplay, wacky cartoon visuals, or just plain having fun, I would recommend this game as a must have.

    Rogue Running looks the part, but sadly does not play it well.

    It's a great concept hindered by the lack of content and high price.

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

    While the game is clearly made with longtime Castlevania fans in mind, there is more than enough content for a newcomer to the series to get their feet wet and enjoy.

    Small annoyances aside, Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is simply one of the highest quality traditional role-playing game experiences available on the app store. It's tough as nails, but the combat have you coming back for more.

    But if you look past the pretty fluff and the shiny-ness of your new toy, you'll find that Infinity Blade is really just the same thing over and over again. BUT, that same thing over and over again is oddly appealing… somewhat like the "same thing over and over again" mechanism of Fruit Ninja, Flight Control, etc. And for that reason, there's really no other rating for this than the Must Have.

    For right now, it's nothing more than a bad first-person shooter.

    The point and click adventures that have too much dialogue do not appeal much to me, as I like to play my games and not read them; but I really did enjoy the story of Scarlett.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Assault Squadron is a fantastic game. While I personally prefer twitchier controls, most players will not find them to be an issue so this concern really should be considered more of a personal preference.

    Ash
    Though I suspect once you get involved with Ash, you won't be able to put it down until you see what happens next.

    It is easily among my favorite new app store releases.

    Creating multiplayer match ups with friends is as simple as emailing your friends the link to your match and when accepted the game begins.

    Once you strip down the game to its bare core and reveal it in its true form, you get a relatively smooth online FPS with one gameplay mode. Poor animations add to the list along with the fact that replay value is limited, making for quite mediocre online play.

    Dodonpachi Resurrection is the best top-down shooter I've ever played, and being a newbie at bullet-hell shooters, I've had a ton of fun with it.

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

    Aralon is quite simply the best RPG on the App Store. I can't really say enough about it, but man, Galoobeth and Crescent Moon have really outdone themselves.

    It's awesome, the graphics are great, and the gameplay isn't too shabby. Sure, there's room for improvement. And if you didn't like the first one, you definitely won't like this. But honestly, compared to the competition, you really can't ask for more.

    I can go on and on about how horrible this sports title is.

    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.

    In short, this is the first superb new iOS game of the new year.

    Flick Golf is another one of those games that you simply can't go wrong with, unless you hate golf games for some reason.

    Clearly lacking in innovation, and personally, I'm having trouble playing the game for long periods of time. With a lack of story, lack of creativity, and an overall lack of fun, I say avoid this worm-hole of a mess until further notice.

    It's been a long time since I was actually sucked into a video game storyline and cared about the characters and their fates.
