    LostWinds is a wonderful treat, brimming with clever ideas and imaginative sights. It's just a massive shame that the controls took a big hit in the transition from Wii to iOS.

    The freedom and range of item management creates huge scope for personalised gameplay and strategy, and while the dawdling pace won't suit many, those able to respect the game's qualities should find the experience very rewarding.

    Hugely ambitious and quietly innovative - only a few rough edges stop this short of potential all-time classic status.

    Big Boss is a shallow, but fun side-scrolling fighter with a hefty dollop of humour and charm.

    Sure to put a smile on your face, Life of Pixel is a simple and fun adventure that's only slightly tarnished by its short lifespan and tricky levels

    War Pinball looks and sounds fantastic, but there's still room for improvement when it comes to table design.
    • 74 Metascore

    Loads of fun for about an hour, after which the batteries and enjoyment from this robot run a little dry.

    War Pinball looks and sounds fantastic, but there's still room for improvement when it comes to table design.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A fast, clinical arcade shooter that’s perhaps a bit too simple for its own good. Still worth a blast though.

    Well produced and highly addictive, Tiny Heroes will find favour with fans of the genre – providing they don't expect anything startlingly original.

    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 fun chunk of same-room multiplayer gaming, Don't Fall in the Hole lacks a little depth, but in short blasts it's glorious.

    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.
