    Soccer Superstars is a fun, fun game that I enjoy. They got that part of the game down, but once it comes to the technical stuff, the game seems to fall apart.

    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.

    But I must give credit where credit is due: if you're dying for another racer, GT Racing is solid.

    Overall, Cubed Rally Racer is just an okay game; casual gamers may find it a bit frustrating and ultimately quit for some other game.

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

    I'm totally bewildered as to why they didn't include online multiplayer, why they didn't add some more control options, and why they decided to take customization out.

    I have to say this is one of the best games I have played in some time. I have no problem recommending this to everyone, whatever device you own!

    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.

    Overall, despite some minor gripes that can be fixed with updates such as deathmatch multiplayer, or lock-on controls, Star Batallion is a great flight-sim package that is very arcade-like in execution at times, but offers solid twitch-gameplay and challenge, with great presentation and graphics.

    Highborn is a really strong game and I highly recommend you give it a shot, even if your not a fan of turn based strategy games, or you're tired of them. This is fresh, new, and seriously…how expensive is it really?

    The game is short on lasting appeal, and leans too heavily on MiniGore, but is nonetheless worth a look. A dual-stick stick shooter for casual gamers, Guerilla Bob is best taken in short spurts over time. Hardcore players tending to devour games in one or two sittings will quickly tear through the game and leave it in their dust.

    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.

    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.

    I wasn't exactly pleased with the generic material of the game, but it's an overall, well-done game.

    A bloody good time. The repetition and lack of social gaming support drag it down as a whole, but there's no denying the fun to be had with this game.

    Carnivores Ice Age does nothing to improve upon its previous; all it does is provide hunters with an entirely new theme.

    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.

    PES 2010 is, at best, a good soccer game. There are a lot of feature and content problems that I know could have been nonexistent had Konami been more creative.

    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.

    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.

    Heavy Mach 2 offers a semi-casual mech-combat game with lite RPG elements, somewhat imperfect and lacking in depth, but overall a brilliant game that's easy to recommend. With standout controls, excellent visuals and nonstop action, Heavy Mach 2 should not be missed by mech fans or action gamers.

    While the definitive versions of Final Fantasy II and II are still the versions available for PSP, these ports are decent enough to suffice if you don't have one.

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

    Ultimately, Super Mega Worm is an enjoyable experience after the initial accommodation-period for the controls. While the upgrades provide incentive for replayability, the rather one-dimensional nature of the game keeps it at a "worth a look" recommendation. And remember to recycle kids. The Wyrm is watching you.

    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.

    And while Battle of Puppets has some positives, it's mostly draped in shallow gameplay.

    Xenome is, in one word, raw. It's very raw, but it has so much potential that I actually cannot wait for it to finally blossom.

    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.

    The perfect pick up and play sports game that focuses on the fun aspects of the game without being too technical.
