    Bland and tedious, Naught 2 offers a gentler challenge than the frustrating original, but little else of note.

    Yesterday is as dark as a summer's day and as funny as a kick in the teeth. The puzzles are poorly designed and the story barely even makes sense. Leave this one in the past.

    A dull hidden object game that's somehow simultaneously bland and unpalatably garish.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Disappointing point-and-click adventure with the odd decent puzzle but one that feels too basic, with too few hooks to really stand out, meaning it fast becomes a chore to play.

    Lacking much of the tone that made the movies great, Ghostbusters is about as fun as being forced to slowly trudge through slime, and being overcharged for the pleasure of doing so at a faster rate.

    A port with potential ruined by obtrusively implemented IAPs, Tales of Phantasia is only for those with deep pockets or saint-like levels of patience.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Typically shabby movie tie-in that will have you running for your mummy.
    • 54 Metascore

    WALL-E doesn't annoy or offend, but looks terrible and doesn't entertain either, and that leaves it only fit for landfill.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Too easy and too slow, aside from the wonderful visual design, there's very little in AMF Bowling Pinbusters! to sustain your interest. Lack of touchscreen play only serves to add to the disappointment.
    • 63 Metascore

    A dull little game that makes being a deity feel decidedly average, Fury of the Gods isn't worth your time.
    • 58 Metascore

    Even if you leave to one side its overtly aggressive freemium pricing scheme, Plants War is still an unpleasant and bland slog.

    Breed creatures, collect different types of that creature, ensure they're happy, get frustrated with wait timers, exit, delete.

    Danger Boat is a perfectly pleasant, but completely uneventful entry in a very tired genre. There are at least seventeen zillion better endless-runners on the App Store.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bit more entertaining than reading a textbook, only not as effective. Stick to Minna no Nihongo and Japanesepod101.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Impressive handling and a decent package of race events completely undermined by technical issues and clumsy execution.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    League of Mages pits you into one-on-one magical combat with real players, but its flat grind-heavy gameplay lacks any hint of magic.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game this beautiful deserves a lot more than the rambling plot and uninspired gameplay that brings it to an almost immediate halt.
    • 64 Metascore

    Like a dodgy pilot episode, Stargate SG1: Unleashed is badly written, poorly paced, and really quite dull.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A painfully simple pair of ideas that are executed poorly and endlessly recycled.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Fairly bland but nicely illustrated shooty zombie shenanigans, largely wrecked by dreadful controls and an inevitably dispiriting upgrade system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Though it captures the tone of the series well, Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is an otherwise lifeless title with little in it to recommend.
    • 58 Metascore

    Like a blackout at the Super Bowl, NFL Quarterback 13 leaves you wondering where all the football gameplay went.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The release of Urban Champion as a 3D Classic makes us wonder if Nintendo has gone stark raving mad.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A sluggish, un-fun endless-runner that adds little to the template, Riot Runners is better off avoided.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The components for a decent game are present and correct, but many of the good points are hacked to death by poor level design, frustrating gating, and unresponsive controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's a neat idea here, but Moto Joe just isn't good enough to see it through.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Random Runners adds nothing new to the auto-runner genre, except frustration, unfair design, and grinding for currency.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Good-looking but ultimately vacuous – and I'm not talking about the celebs - this 2D shooter is a one-dimensional disappointment.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A sad and sloppy platformer with little to recommend it, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is best left to the annals of history.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A good idea on paper, but simply too complex for mobile.
