    The dragon returns to form. The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning is a well-designed, satisfying action game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gem Keeper's wonderful presentation and rock-solid fundamentals are undermined by a difficulty level that veers all over the place, but this is still a polished and enjoyable tower defence experience.

    QatQi is a fun and immensely stylish word puzzler, though its solo Scrabble gameplay isn't quite as innovative or compelling as its presentation would suggest.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun casual puzzler with some novel concepts, let down by an uneven difficulty curve and unnecessary IAPs.

    Nice face, shame about the legs. Despite some great locations and visuals Underworld's gameplay will feel a bit on the bland side for regular pocket gamers - the more casual crowd should love it, though.

    Monster Dash is a spunky spin on the speedy platformer with a short shelf life.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple shoot and score highscore game, Flick Kick Football is ephemeral fun.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    NBA Jam is one slammin', jammin' ball game, but where's the multiplayer?
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Silent Age: Episode Two wraps up the story nicely, but it wastes its clever time-travelling mechanic.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One Epic Game is the Michael Bay of gaming apps. Gaudy explosions and self-referential jokes disguise a simple but robust design.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Far from revolutionary, Fancy Pants is an interesting, slightly muddled game that still manages to have moments of high-speed brilliance.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Let's Golf! 3D is inferior to its smartphone caddies due to framerate issues, but is still well worth chipping in for.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tough, frustrating, and a little too twitchy, Super Hexagon is nonetheless a skilfully constructed and compelling game / instrument of torture.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Find the Line is a mellow puzzle game that's marred by loud, frequent ads.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Friendly Fire! gives a subtle but effective prod to Clash of Clans's take on strategy rather than a full-blown revolution, but it's focus on real-world locations and revenge attacks equips it with an arsenal worthy of warfare.

    A bargain, considering what you get for your money. Lots to see and do here.

    You'll dislike the approach Ubisoft took to the presentation of Michael Jackson in the title, as well as the paltry number of songs on offer, but look past these issues and this is a great rhythm-action title that makes smart use of the Vita's touchscreen.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Red Remover Blast is a solid puzzle game that will appeal to fans of Red Remover, as well as newcomers to the series.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A tense and surprisingly strategic stealth puzzler that's only let down by awkward controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An oxymoronic retro update of Alien Space, this is a visually appealing and engaging twin stick shooter that is unfortunately too similar to its predecessor to be considered a true great.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solid but uninspired: Diamond Digger Saga is a very well constructed match-3 with a twist, but that twist isn't big enough to tempt back people bored of Candy Crush and the like.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lego The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game is fundamentally a good game based on a great licence, but it's let down by the squiffy port to Vita.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable mashing together of shooter and runner, Strike Force Heroes: Extraction won't go down in history, but it'll keep you entertained for a while.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's lost some edge and coherence in transit, but Snuggle Truck's lighter tone is arguably a better fit for its blend of knockabout physics-based fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're okay with seeing nothing new, you'll find CandyMeleon will while away a solid few hours of your time with its perfectly palatable sweetie action.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Offering five twists on its track-switching gameplay, Train Conductor 2: USA provides a quick and varied time management fix.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite an odd mission structure, Hunters: Episode One succeeds with solid, in-depth turn-based tactical gameplay.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever little word game, Lumicon could do with a few more features, but it's still an entertaining way to tax your brain.

    There are a few problems with 21 Days, but if you can get past them, you'll find a decent, if frustrating, stealth game.

    Big Action Mega Fight! pens a love letter to the beat-'em-up genre. Then, it sets that letter on fire and rams it down your throat
