    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is the best thing that could have happened to the Nintendo 3DS and its lack of hit titles. Epic, fascinating and unique in its genre, this remake is probably one of the best 3DS games of the year.

    Ankama's first iPhad game, Dofus Battle HD, is a success: based on a tower defense concept, the game cleverly distances itself from the competition courtesy of a very solid narrative, honed gameplay and unique visual style.

    Not surprisingly, iBlast Moki buries the competition. Beautiful, simple and addictive, you can barely fault it. Whether you're a fan of puzzle games or not, iBlast Moki 2 is definitely a game that will have you hooked for a few hours.

    Offering a simple and original game mechanic, and underpinned by a quality production and lenghty lifespan, Where's the Water is a worthy challenger to the classics of the genre. If you like puzzle games, take the plunge.

    The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn - The Game is an excellent action aventure title that combines good production values and varied gameplay.

    Tower Defense: Lost Earth is an exceptional game. Great production values, fun, lengthy, well-calibrated, great playability and fully localised in French, this is undoubtedly one of the best tower defense examples you'll find on the App Store.

    Aside from an old-skool difficulty level that is exacerbated by touchscreen controls that are understandably less responsive than a keyboard or joystick, the iOS version of Another World is flawless. You'll find in it all of the quality of the original: exceptional atmosphere, surprisingly contemporary gameplay, and a successful platform/adventure mix.

    The new Cut the Rope isn't the eagerly awaited incredible follow-up. Short and with few innovations, it's more a large update of the current version than a true sequel. That said, the game's charming protagonist, superb production values and highly addictive concept make this an excellent, must-buy title.

    Sonic is back on track, setting a new standard for kart-based games on iPhone and iPad. Even if its audio/visual package is a long way from the current leading examples on iPhone, the game is well polished and balanced, resulting in great single- and multiplayer fun.

    Bring Me Sandwiches is an original platformer with a very simple but polished gameplay.

    Ankama's first iPhone game, Dofus Battle, is a success: based on a tower defense concept, the game cleverly distances itself from the competition courtesy of a very solid narrative, honed gameplay and unique visual style.

    Tiny Tower takes the Sim Tower concept and brings it to iPhone in freemium form, delivering a pleasant play experience before a cent is even spent. With its attractive pixel-art design, its humour, and never short of something for the player to do, Tiny Tower is hard to quit.

    Save Yammi is a delightful surprise. Graphically too close to Cut the Rope yet nevertheless very accomplished and in possession of original gameplay, thereby distilling simple pleasures. The only criticism relates to its shortish lifespan and an accelerometer control method more suited to iPhone than iPad.

    A surprising game on several aspects that suffers only from its choice of aesthetics, the high difficulty of some levels, and its relatively short length. Nevertheless, Feed me Oil remains an appealing and innovative title for fans of physical puzzlers.

    If you're looking for a platform game packed with personality and hooked on great ideas, give Cordy a try.

    Boasting a polished execution and a tried and tested gameplay, Air Penguin will definitely entertain you for a few hours. We can only criticize it for its perfectible handling and rather short length.

    Puzzle Agent 2 is an excellent title that draws its strength from its Professor Layton concept, as well as its wacky and humourous universe. Sadly, the lack of French localisation means this is intended primarily for English speakers.

    Squids emerges as a turn-based strategy game that delivers on many aspects, but it isn't flawless. The game is unquestionably a beautiful audio/visual experience, but sadly too short to allow it to be savoured as it ought to.

    Placing us this time in the shoes of a racing team manager, Kairsoft has succeeded in creating a good management game that follows in the steps of the developer's 'Story' series. Despite a pacing issue in the middle segment of the game, Grand Prix Story remains most enjoyable and captivating.

    Offering a variety of challenges, Hungribles is an accomplished puzzle game that further benefits from an original visual treatment.

    Despite some questionable gameplay choices and problems of handling on some levels, Crazy Escape is still a solid puzzle game in terms of gameplay and universe originality that will occupy fans of this genre for many hours with almost 100 levels.

    Shadowgun is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful games on the App Store, and without question the one that most fully exploits its graphical resources, yet the experience lacks depth, preventing the overall experience from being excellent. Nevertheless, it remains a great stress reliever and deserves attention, if only to savour its technical prowess.

    Monsters Ate My Condo is a game that's undeniably fun and entertaining, and one that further benefits from a high calibre production. However, its peculiar gameworld and the assault of flashy visual effects are likely to put off a few players. It's an experience worth trying.

    Although not a bad game, To-Fu 2 suffers from 'limited sequel' syndrome. You can appreciate its production values and gameplay, but without much in the way of novelty or variety this is a game you'll eventually tire of.

    Happy Hills is a good puzzle title that doesn't revolutionise its genre but will offer some pleasant hours of play to fans, provided they're not looking for too strong a challenge.

    With its intuitive but very demanding gameplay, eBoo is a little App Store jewel. The polished graphics and strong humour throughout ensure a charming game which, with regular updates, could become a must-have on iPhone.

    Order and Chaos Online collects all the basics of heroic-fantasy MMORPG and brings them to iPhone. Technically and graphically very impressive, the game suffers from the need of a wifi connection to play and a lack of high level content like dungeons and real PVP. If Gameloft can quickly and regularly bring new content to the game, the iPhone will have its "World of Warcraft".

    Without revolutionizing its genre, Corpse Granny is a good puzzle game, with cartoonish graphics and full of humor.

    Contre Jour offers a unique gameworld alongside a particularly attractive atmosphere. Throw in an endearing character and proven play mechanics and you've got a serious competitor to Cut the Rope.

    Although not a bad game, Block Breaker 3 Unlimited's graphical bias and general messy nature cost it a few points. However, if the game's universe doesn't put you off then you will find a tile breaker that's fun, original and particularly comprehensive.
