    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.

    The combat here is good fun, and it's presented well, but technical issues and no multiplayer damages its long-term appeal.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You'll be talking about the online leaderboards in OlliOlli for weeks, and probably grumbling quietly about the imprecise controls while you do it.

    Definitely a better buy than its 3DS counterpart, Hometown Story Pocket is still something of a jumble sale.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An attractive 2.5D auto-runner that doesn't offer anything new, but manages to succeed through sheer variety.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Amigo Pancho is an entertaining if slight mixture of familiar physics-puzzler elements. It's a thoroughly pleasant casual treat.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slingshotting beetles at wood is more addictive than it sounds. And for free, you might as well try it for yourself.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    1-bit Ninja Remix Rush is an unrelenting and unforgiving challenge, and the perfect antidote to toothless endless runners.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tokyo Crash Mobs takes the crown as the Nintendo 3DS's weirdest game yet, with potentially dull match-three action that is rejuvenated by silliness.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Free to play veterans will put up with the shenanigans Angry Birds Transformers tries to pull in the name of a quality shooter, but those just looking for a quick burst of fun may find the wait timers and slow progress distasteful.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining arcade game inspired by classics Pong and Breakout, no amount of charm can compensate for a lack of depth and long-term appeal.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intuitive and absorbing puzzle game with a solid central concept. It just needs to branch out a little in order to join the puzzling elite.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very good version of a great game, the 3DS outing of Swap Force is the portable port fans have deserved for a long time
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Illusia 2 is a quirky and imperfect RPG that's worth far more than its free price tag.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pretty and playable turn-based tactics game that needs to go rogue and break from genre conventions with new ideas and fresher gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly fun little game that's as entertaining as it is cynical, Moneygrabber! is definitely worth a look.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sometimes great, sometimes hateful, Glint at least manages to be interesting all the time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Running about smashing things with your creature is fun for a bit, and the experience grind loop is certainly powerful here, but otherwise it's a pretty standard dungeon-crawler.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Demolition Crush is a solid physics game that revels in the art of blowing stuff up.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not the most realistic sim ever, but with a neat Story mode and solid gameplay, Flick Bowling 2 will fulfill most of your iPhone bowling needs.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An endless-runner in the Jetpack Joyride mould, Sea Stars's gameplay is solid and slick, but its reliance on in-app purchase sits uncomfortably with the game as a whole.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fine little abstract for the mobile age, which trades a bit of depth and variety in exchange of accessibility.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well put together game for younger players, you might even enjoy the odd go yourself.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is Scrabble X Street Fighter X Facebook, and it plays as good as that sounds. It's still not mass appeal enough to turn the heads of people disinterested in word games, though.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Samantha Swift and The Hidden Roses of Athena is perfect for hidden object fans, although it's rather on the short side.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Globulos Party offers great local multiplayer fun, but is a little too hit and miss as a single-player game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Junk Jack owes a significant debt to Minecraft but has a personality of its own. A worthy companion to the real thing.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a lot to like about Infestor, and despite a few niggles it offers an engaging, novel platform experience.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An admirable attempt to do something different and clever on iOS, dragged down by a few too many levels that require tedious slogging.
