    A fast, clinical arcade shooter that’s perhaps a bit too simple for its own good. Still worth a blast though.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A lovely little downloadable for the creative types in younger age brackets, this solidly constructed application yields a surprising level of flexibility considering its cheap and cheerful design.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Well produced and highly addictive, Tiny Heroes will find favour with fans of the genre – providing they don't expect anything startlingly original.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid puzzler which is occasionally hampered by control issues and an over-reliance on trial and error gameplay.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the Unmechanical controls can be infuriating sometimes, the game is still a hugely entertaining and engaging adventure.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun and relaxing puzzler, Paperama is a pretty slow game, but it's fun all the same.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An odd, frequently unfair, yet amusing platformer that challenges you to remember its bizarre rule transgressions and keep plugging away to find the troof at its core.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Easy to pick up and difficult to put down, Puzzle & Dragons delivers exactly what it promises to.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slightly scattered action game with an interesting strategic sideline, Bug Heroes 2 gets a little lost in itself sometimes, but it's still worth a crack.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it's not entirely original or polished, Antithesis is a clever take on Pong that would benefit from a multiplayer update.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    After a rocky start, Blitz Brigade has solidified into a fine online team-based shooter, albeit one with lingering connectivity issues and an OTT freemium economy.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun chunk of same-room multiplayer gaming, Don't Fall in the Hole lacks a little depth, but in short blasts it's glorious.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While Assassin's Creed II: Discovery isn't going to revolutionise the DS, it gives you the chance to enjoy solidly executed and fast-paced, platforming action.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not as extravagant, thrilling, or exciting as the main series it's based on, however frame rate and control issues aside, this is a good option for those who want a similar experience on the go.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An endearing and often challenging platformer that sees its idea through.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intriguing mash of ideas with a sometimes jarring rhythm, Caveman Wars is definitely worth a second look.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Shamelessly old skool in almost every regard, Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls acts as if the past twenty years of RPG development never happened, yet it still manages to provide an engrossing experience for anyone brave and determined enough to fight through its obtuse exterior.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Duke Nukem 3D somehow holds up as a wicked fun shooter in 2015, and this Megaton Edition is a worthwhile compilation.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    On Tour Decades brings better songs and a slightly more comprehensive Guitar Hero experience to Guitar Hero on DS. There are still issues with the comfort and practicalities of its guitar fret peripheral, but the most rousing songs are still a lot of fun to play.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A Maximus-sized serving of blood and sandals and severed appendages. It's just a shame you can rack up a Maximus-sized bill playing it, too.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Rock Band Reloaded lays out a nice set of features and satisfying gameplay, despite fumbling Facebook integration.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid match-three puzzler saved by a recent update, Zoo Keeper DX Touch Edition would benefit greatly from a dash of innovation to help it stand out from the crowd.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Making the fullest use of the DS hardware, Spectrobes does almost everything you could want, but it's marred by niggling flaws.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't let the cuteness fool you: Monster Burner is a tough arcade puzzler.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With the new scavenger hunt mode included, the Vita version of Proteus has something to offer that the PC version didn't, but it's still a polarising experience.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bright and gleefully chaotic line-drawing blaster, Sky Patrol is a neat little diversion.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple in parts, BeamOut blossoms into an all-action romp with enough kick to make it worth playing despite its flaws.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A standard dungeon-crawling JRPG, Cthulhu Saves the World is more of a cheeky love letter than a parody, and that makes it all the more enjoyable.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Persona 2 is at its best when it deviates from the cookie cutter design of JRPGs, yet it never quite strays far or often enough from these conventions, leaving a by-the-numbers adventure with just enough innovation to keep players hooked until the closing credits.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combat here is good fun, and it's presented well, but technical issues and no multiplayer damages its long-term appeal.
