    It might not be the Fire Emblem game you wanted on mobile, but it's the one that we've got, and it's pretty solid.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fast and reasonably flashy arcade blast with a few tricks up its retro sleeve.
    • 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
    An interesting take on the shmup that appeals to more than just the aficionados.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It still has the fun factor of the series, but Asphalt Xtreme feels more like a game stuck in the past than a step forward.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This isn't SOCOM Vita. The storytelling is abysmal and the online is underdeveloped, but Unit 13 still manages to be a solid military shooter with an arcade edge.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Far from grand strategy or intricate planning, StickWars 3 is about flicking little men into the air and watching them flop down in glorious puddles of gore.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The harsh AI difficulty will diminish its appeal, but 7th Guest: Infection remains a well-presented and interesting boardgame.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid physics-puzzler with a limited lifespan and in need of some polish.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
