    A perfectly playable endless runner, Sonic Dash is entertaining enough, but highlights how far the series has come since its glory days.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The price might be right, but Eliminate has a few wrongs that need correction: matchmaking issues, weapon imbalances, and a couple control quirks which shoot holes in the fun.

    Paradise Bay doesn't do much, but what it does do is going to be the perfect poison for a certain type of player.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Resident Evil Revelations 2 may be a cut-down port, but if you can forgive its rough edges you're in for a treat.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A subtle reinvention of the Flappy Bird-like impossible flyer, 8bit Doves relies on charm and interesting controls to drag you through its simple gameplay.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly shooter with lots of zombies to plough through, Dead Effect is far from a classic. But it is brainless fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good-looking, deep and engaging package that should be in any self-respecting gamer's collection, save for the fact that many who lack the skill, talent and time to succeed in it won't be able to access at least half of what's on offer.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though the game has some issues that make it unnecessarily frustrating, Mimpi is worth taking for a walk.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solitaire Blitz is vintage PopCap, with peerlessly addictive gameplay and quietly impressive presentation. Unfortunately, the freemium payment model will be a barrier for many.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's Puzzle Craft too, and if you don't have a problem with that then you're going to enjoy this sequel.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fittingly shallow and suitably silly, this auto-runner is one of the better examples of the genre, if still limited in its appeal.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With Infinity Blade 3, Chair turns the thrilling sword-fighting series into a huge adventure. The reliance on frequent deaths and forced grinding, however, is an infuriating relic from previous games.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it isn't quite the game it could be, Extreme Justice is nevertheless a polished, outrageous and – most importantly – highly competent video game equivalent of the kind of films that have turned high-camp action into an art form.

    Alphadia2 doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen previously, but those who appreciate old skool Japanese RPGs will find little to complain about.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A generous package of casual online multiplayer games that, while not particularly distinguished in any single area, contains a generous spirit and a compelling risk-reward system.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Archetype is a great-looking and fun shooter, but it has improvements to make before becoming the essential iPhone shooter.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strong ending to a good series, if you've pushed past the technical issues this far then there's no reason why you shouldn't complete the set.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Baby Monkey (riding backwards on a pig) is just as addictive as the YouTube video - but just as repetitious, too.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A tough and angry old-school shooter, Ammo Pigs will scratch a retro itch quite nicely.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another crazed, retro blast from the mind of Jeff Minter, FiveADay is a little tricky to get to grips with, but once it clicks it's hilarious fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're happy to play by its rules, Word Monsters is a polished puzzler packed with content that'll keep you busy for a week or two.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it will keep you entertained for a period, Pastry Panic is a little too lightweight to become a classic.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining if slight arcade blaster, with a dollop of humour and a relentlessly frenzied nature.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Seasoned puzzle fans will have a field day with this game, but those who prefer a little more meat in their experience will be left wanting more.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A novel and entertaining blend of sandbox and strategy with a unique theme and a few unfortunate PC port flaws.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Megastunt Mayhem is a light-on-its-feet monster truck game with arcade fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While FunGenerationLab doesn't do anything especially new or different with Motocross Elite, it is good fun while it lasts. Repetition can set in after a few hours, mind.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While maintaining the sugary sweet style of its inventive forerunners, LocoRoco Midnight Carnival braves new gameplay that has sticky points preventing it from being as grand.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A deeply enjoyable if plain and somewhat miserly casual arcade racer that nails the feeling of zipping through traffic at high speeds.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engaging, quick-fire arcade game that'll fill up some time quite happily.
