    Absolutely stunning. This stands as one of my all-time favorite games for the iPad, considering the fact that there's so much to do and so little time.

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

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

    League of Evil is a rare find, a game that excels at short, quick bursts of gaming, but which also holds up in longer play sessions.

    Pro Zombie Soccer as a game is a must have experience. The controls, gameplay, and artwork are just over the top, making this casual game one of the more intriguing.

    It is easily among my favorite new app store releases.

    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.

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

    Overall, Airstrike Defense is a solid line drawing game which will have you wanting to play one more round; complete one more mission.

    The single best platformer on the iPhone. If you want a better game, you'll have to lay hands on a Nintendo DS to play New Super Mario Bros. And even then, Giana Sisters stacks up for its fantastic art direction, unique creature designs and the fact that the entire game world isn't the product of a bizarre acid trip.

    Great action, diverse gameplay and a superbly polished presentation make Sky Combat a winner.

    Overall, Sword of Fargoal is currently the best roguelike game in the App Store, and will probably remain so for quite a long time, if not forever.

    Aqua Moto Racing 2 didn't strike me as a breakthrough racing experience, but the balance of the game itself really impressed.

    As a sequel, Blue Defense: Second Wave captures everything that was great about the first game, refines it, builds upon it, ups the ante manifold.

    Far from perfect when it comes to features, but the gameplay is nearly perfect.

    There is nothing to dislike about Quell; the game is the very embodiment of relaxation.

    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.

    Overlooking the fact that the game doesn't make any sense and is, at times, utterly ridiculous, Air Attack is a superb shooter.

    On one hand, it's beautiful, and the swipe controls work great. It's a bargain at $0.99 including the fact that it's universal, and the game does have its shining moments. Then there's the other hand, which includes the fact that it doesn't have GameCenter achievements, has terrible tilt controls, and that the time constraint does bother at times.

    Ozone is a beautiful game crafted quite nicely.

    Overall, Samurai 2 Vengence is a very solid game that shows the potential of the kinds of games the iDevices can handle despite lacking the processing power of a PC or modern console.

    I've had a ton of fun with Monster Dash, and there's really no other words to describe it other than just that: fun.

    While the lack of music definitely does nothing to enhance the game, there is already so much high quality content that Dinosaur Slayer is without a doubt a must have for its magnificent art style and surprisingly deep and enjoyable combat system.

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

    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.

    Designed specifically for the iPad, it plays better than any other dual-stick shooter I've tried on the device, it's gorgeous and I've been having a blast with it.

    The game is a highly enjoyable SRPG with an engrossing story and a wonderful combat system.

    Any RPG fan will love Com2uS's new game Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone. The party system is easy to understand and easy to manage and there are no difficulties or problems interchanging between mercenaries.

    Simply one of the best fighters I've played on the iPhone. It's got an easy-to-follow storyline, adequate controls, beautiful graphics, and an overall enjoyable gameplay experience.

    Zombie Infection is a well-made zombie-shooter with high production values, great graphics, and an overall solid gameplay experience.
