    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    Despite its very minor flaws, Monster Mayhem is one of the best tower defense games produced to date.

    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.

    A fantastic sandbox game and is one of my most played iPhone games.

    It has gotten me hooked and playing for hours at a time-a feat that not many games can boast of-and quite honestly, I think this game is the best "bird" game out of the Big Three.

    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.

    Battleheart is the epitome of casual gaming on the App Store. It goes alongside Fruit Ninja, Flight Control, and Canabalt as one of the best casual games I have ever played.

    The game controls well, combat is loads of fun and the action never stops. OMG Pirates! should not be missed.

    Dark Void Zero is a love-letter to old-school NES gamers, and being conscious of their target audience, Capcom delivers in a major way.

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

    There's just so much to do that for $0.99, this is a no brainer.

    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.

    It's priced correctly, plays wonderfully, and controls nicely.

    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.

    Vector Tanks EXTREME is not for the faint of heart. But if action is your drug, then VTX is like crack.

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

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

    Neuroshima Hex! should appeal to fans of tabletop role-playing games, or those looking for a board game experience heavy on strategy and apart from the norm.

    Being of solid concept and immaculate presentation, Spirit is an easy recommendation.

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

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

    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.

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