    An entertaining little puzzler, Be Together doesn't quite have the style or the ingenuity to be a must-buy.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Utterly addictive in nature, 1000 Heroz's series of daily races is undoubtedly hard to put down, though working out the right path from the wrong one is even more difficult than in a bible parable.

    Hatoful Boyfriend is thoroughly recommended for fans of the genre, alongside anyone with a taste for the absurd looking for a new experience.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple and entertaining enough casual roguelike, Land Sliders doesn't have much meat on its bones, but that's fine.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A delightfully silly physics-puzzler that's slightly derivative but highly entertaining.
    • 76 Metascore

    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unusual gameplay and rich theme help bring Vietnam to life, but repetition sets in sooner than it should.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent conclusion to a punishing roguelike trilogy that wisely takes some of the sting out of your numerous and inevitable deaths.
    • 72 Metascore

    All in all, if you love your social media, then this could certainly have you adding the app to your daily routine, especially if Nintendo incorporates it into its upcoming NX system.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A badly dubbed point-and-click that at least packs the artwork to get you in the mood for the next Broken Sword - but it’s not the main event.

    • 70 Critic Score
    It might be what it looks like, but if you can get past that Angel Stone offers a lot of simple grindy fun.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite some pacing and loading issues, this is a game with a good, solid and inventive soul that offers a unique and enjoyable take on rhythm gaming for the persevering gamer.

    A flawed but enjoyable romp, saved in part by a fun multiplayer mode, Wild Blood isn't vintage Gameloft, but it's entertaining in small chunks.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-made tower defence game that, for a free-to-play title, comes at a high price. Alien Creeps TD is fully featured but a tad expensive.

    • 70 Critic Score
    While particularly savvy players are unlikely to find anything especially innovative in Machineers, the amount of care that’s gone into this blend of existing ideas is noteworthy, with an experience tainted only by its need for further fleshing out.

    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Captivating art and fun gameplay come together in this runner. With a few tweaks to the controls, this will be an extremely solid title.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A novel combination of physics gameplay and creative online scoring, Finger Physics: Thumb Wars could stand for more polished level design.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Too simple a set up to stretch out across an entire game, Egg vs. Chicken is nonetheless an entertaining match-three battler, even if it comes to the boil a little too quickly.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well presented freemium take on Theme Park-style games, Tiny Tower wins plaudits for its early activity and quirky nature, but lacks long-term compulsion.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Chillaxian delivers what its name promises: an arcade shooter that manages to be challenging and mellow.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever, unique top-down shooter that is ultimately enjoyable, if only for a short while.
    • 71 Metascore

    Snoopy's Street Fair is a solid iOS freemium title that's hampered by its emphasis on grinding.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mighty Switch Force is clever, charming, and fun, but feels more like a prototype than a full game.

    The surreal puzzles of "HOOK" are quite a bit more taxing than they first appear. And I'm totally okay with that..
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Front Mission may not pack a full house of tactical depth, but that doesn't prevent it from dealing an easy and enjoyable introduction to the genre.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat enough recreation of cricket, and it's free so you may as well have a crack.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While combat needs fine-tuning, the exploration and platform side of Shadow Guardian make it an enjoyable play.
