    Simple and stodgy, Assault Wave offers a good chunk of game, but it loses some of its flavour after a while.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although the novel RPG Story element is less refined than it could be, with over-long cut-scenes and some tedious schlepping, Bomberman Story is a worthwhile RPG and, more importantly, a terrific multiplayer experience.

    Emissary of War shows how to make a great iOS dungeon-crawler - it's just a shame there's not more of it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat little sim, but once you get down to the bones of the matter, Pocket Trains is a little too similar to its airborne predecessor.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This match-three-puzzler-in-RPG-clothing adds just enough flavour to spice up its otherwise passable gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slight fudge on its predecessor, PES 2011 is made up of largely the same squad, but never reaches the same heights.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    ModNation Racer's astonishing editing tool and bucketfuls of personality are let down by lacklustre handling and sensation of speed.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid tower defence game with some decent ideas, if you like the genre Because Zombies is worth a shot.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Part 3 is an enjoyable continuation of the Back To the Future story, but is still plagued by the technical issues of past attempts.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-designed, wonderfully frantic climber that's thoroughly enjoyable despite doing little to set itself apart from its genre bedfellows.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sound Ride's unique graphics and music-building hook add a bit of spice to what's otherwise a relatively vanilla running game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although more puzzles and a level sharing facility would be welcome, the ability to create almost any physics-based simulation on the move means that players can do far worse than TinkerBox.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Colin McRae Rally is a fine racer, but it's sorely let down by some forgotten modes and features, and those seriously outdated visuals.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple and linear, Sprinkle Islands never allows room to think, but it's reasonably entertaining all the same.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Short but sweet, Scramble With Friends is a game designed exclusively for the socially-enabled wordplay fan. That said, Zynga With Friends has delivered an addictive puzzler for those willing to engage with friends and randoms alike.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Road Master dishes out great graphics and more than enough thrills to overcome its steep level of difficulty.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The most fully featured and deepest entry in the Patapon series so far, but definitely not the most fun or accessible.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great fun for a while, but frustration will likely set in before the home stretch. Here's hoping a sequel hits the heights that To-Fu can't quite reach.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fairly satisfying and good-looking slice-em-up that could do with a bit more polish and difficulty balancing.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Quantic Pinball is a well-executed modern take on pinball, but it needs to step further away from the classic pinball structure to really make us flip out.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat distillation of cricket. It's not exactly tactical, but it's quite a lot of fun all the same.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might lack a little glitz and glamour, but Cubemen 2 is a satisfyingly deep tactical shooter all the same.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tough but ultimately rewarding, Defense Technica is a surprisingly deep but often cruel tower defence title.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A particularly busy if derivative tower defence game with just enough fresh little touches to make things interesting.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Remember the brawlers of old? This is that. Exactly that, only without the multiplayer you always thought was the best aspect of the genre.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Designed for kids, the well presented Pet Alien provides a gentle puzzle-based experience that should appeal to a wider audience than just those who enjoy the TV show.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Religion Simulator might work better as a slower game with more options, but what's here is engaging and sure to give you a power-rush.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fans of the scrolling-text style of iOOTP Baseball will be in their element in this edition. And while the gameplay itself remains familiar and unchanged, it may not prove quite compelling enough for all but the most ardent slugger fans.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fast and frenetic role-playing that fixes some of its predecessor's largest flaws, despite the continued reliance on rote fetch quests and cheesy writing.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A thoughtful and well-put-together puzzle game, Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes is an enjoyable, deep, time-consuming brainbender.
