    I'm just going to say the game will last you a long time. It has taken me a little close to forever to complete the first city, let along the other 5 or 6 cities. By the end of the game, I don't think anyone would complain about the game being too short or too lacking.

    Gameloft truly outdid themselves with this game, and I was totally blown away by NOVA.

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

    Galaxy on Fire 2 is a must. Even if you don't normally play these kinds of games, you should buy it. It proves that your iPhone IS a gaming platform and perfect to show of to your unbelieving friends.

    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 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!

    Flight Control HD is one of the first games that I cannot find a fault with.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Illusion Labs has struck gold yet again with another must have release for iPhone gamers.

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

    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.

    But I'm a sucker for space shooters and now it's turned me completely on my head. I've been mining the app store for gems, and in Space Miner I've struck pay dirt. Like comets, games like this are rarely seen. Don't let this one pass you by.

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

    I don't know if it's my emphatic love that spills over onto the new game or the fact that the core game was so perfectly carried over into the new game that makes me so thrilled to play. Whatever you want to call it, it's pure magic to me.

    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.

    If you've got an itch for beating monsters senseless, then I can't think of anyone better to scratch it than Tehra. In fact, she can scratch me anytime she likes.

    The controls in Tilt to Live are flawless and I had no problems performing the incredibly precise movements the game requires.

    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.

    It's almost as good looking as Flight Control, if not better, and the design was a major point in this hidden line-drawing game.

    This game just has an unexplicable charm to it that makes me come back to it again and again.

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

    Currently the best the App Store has to offer. It has a few problems like I mentioned above, but the epic storyline, breathtaking graphics, and sweet battle background music makes this a game that's unrivaled.

    Chop Chop Caveman may be the best prehistoric platformer since Bonk's Adventure, and the best Chop Chop game yet.

    In summary, if you have liked games like the classic Doodle Jump or the newer Bird Strike, you will love Parachute Ninja.

    Plants Vs. Zombies goes beyond the game, becoming something more like a phenomenon.

    I would like to see some improvements in speed and multiplayer match-ups, but other than that, Shadow Era is a game that you won't want to miss out on. Plus, it's free. You can't really get any cheaper than that.

    It blindsided me from left field, and I'm still in a daze. And now I am going to make a very bold statement, one that will surely incite controversy: It is my considered opinion that Queen's Crown is the best Korean RPG in the App Store.
