    A well made blast of quick dodging fun, Chocohero lacks the balancing needed to make it a classic, but it's still worth picking up.

    When something looks to have all the ingredients of strategy excellence, you can't help but be a bit sad when it turns out to be more shallow than you'd hoped. As it stands, though, Super Tank Poker boasts brilliant music, an excellent sense of style, and the most entertaining, explosive approximation of poker I've ever seen.

    Capitalism Quest has issues with slow servers, but its basic concept is interesting - and a bit sobering.

    Offering up genuinely unique gameplay, Carnage Heart EXA does what it sets out to do well. But because of that the rest of the game suffers - meaning most battles are slow and somewhat uninteresting affairs.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever twist on the undead craze, Brainsss focuses on grey matter in more ways than one, and just about manages to pull off its mix of stealth and strategy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Wildlings is perfect for those who want a more active tower defence game without having to worry about too many variables, but others will find its lack of options frustrating.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you can find three friends who are also willing to fork out the entry fee, you're laughing. Otherwise, Atomic Ninjas is a fairly good (but utterly dead) online battler.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    NinJump Rooftops literally takes over where NinJump leaves off, and it's an equally fun, if familiar, experience.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unapologetically shallow, undeniably fun. A lightweight confection that's particularly tasty with two.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A teeth grindingly awful game, but you'll still want to get to the end of it.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A concise and enjoyable action RPG-lite with an irritating - but not deal-breaking - IAP system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Whether or not confusion can be considered a viable gameplay mechanic is debatable, but we salute double drop for its impressive efforts to find out.
    • 71 Metascore

    Pilotwings Resort is classic Nintendo, providing enjoyable soaring action throughout. With only an evening's worth of content available however, the entertainment doesn't last very long.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly blockbuster of a game that wants desperately to be on something other than a touchscreen device. Godfire: Rise of Prometheus has a meaty bounce to it, but its lack of subtlety will likely be too much for some to take.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mikey Shorts Halloween is effectively a cleverly skinned demo of the main game, but considering it's free we really can't complain.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A basic retro reactions test that succeeds by being far more accessible and intuitive than most hardcore offerings of this kind.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It won't win awards for innovation or style, but Offroad Legends is still an entertaining little game.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What Angry Birds Rio lacks in new ideas and freshness, it makes up in quality gameplay and good value.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engaging and enthralling turn-based strategy title, Time of Heroes hits more than it misses, and with a few updates could be a classic.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a lot to like here, and the mix of slaughter and collection is going to appeal to many.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    NHL 2K11 has the fundamentals of a good hockey game without the features and polish of a great one.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A serene logic puzzler that's occasionally too restrained for its own good.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Puzzle Retreat is a well-conceived casual puzzler whose only flaws are a lack of spark and variety.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    ChuChu Rocket! fuels fun with challenging puzzle play, despite the absence of online multiplayer and control options.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's hard to recommend Civilization Revolution 2 to those who already played the original. But if this is your first dose of Civ, you're in for a treat.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Too short, but MechAssault Phantom War is an engaging robot combat game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Short-lived, but offering solid swordplay in bite-sized chunks, Cloud Knights is a bit like a tap-dancing koala. It's goofy, charming, and unlikely, but instantly appealing, and great fun while it lasts.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun but lightweight shooter that sets out to recreate the thrills of an arcade light gun game for your iOS device.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jolly Jam doesn't do exactly what you expect it do, and in the casual arena that's certainly something to celebrate.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bold, innovative colour-matching puzzler that suffers from poor control calibration.
