    A charming quick-blast arcade challenge, Bounty Rush serves a purpose, but don't expect it to do much else.

    One-half Dynasty Warriors and one-half Hamtaro, Smash Cat Heroes delivers casual-friendly, button mashing fun in an adorable little package.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A nicely constructed, though often shallow tactical game that deserves attention for its quality portrayal of Transformers G1.

    Controversy aside, Tomodachi Life is a pleasingly directionless life-sim-lite that fans of Animal Crossing should investigate further.

    Dead Trigger is totally braindead and quickly gets boring, but you'll find enough enjoyment for your 69p. In-app purchases and ill-thought-out controls can spoil the fun.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Joining Hands 2 is another slice of gentle family-friendly entertainment that, while fun to play and pleasant to look at, tends to end up in a little too much trial and error for its own good.

    Bertram Fiddle isn't quite as funny or smart as other point and clicks, but it's still a charming and inventive story.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A well put together and enjoyable puzzler, Let me Loose doesn't have enough to raise it above the rest of the crowd.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Rock Boshers DX has a lot of tricks up its sleeve. It's just a shame that the Vita's analogue stick can't keep up.

    Challenging, competitive word-searching make Wordament a game worth playing whether you're padding your Live stats or not.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tough in most of the right places, Spellsword might miss a few tricks, but it's core gameplay is solid enough to keep you playing regardless.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great action RPG – one of the best on PSP – cleverly balanced in such a way as to appeal to both veterans and newcomers, but significantly marred by frustrating loading issues.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Inazuma Eleven is an intriguing blend of RPG and soccer that works on so many levels, though the occasional scripted match leaves us crying in the stands.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Knytt Underground is slow to start and difficult to interpret, but you'll always have fun exploring its environments and surmounting the puzzles that environment presents.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What Monster Hunter lacks in communication, it more than makes up for in quantity and quality of content.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid and well-presented light strategy game that lacks a little in terms of overall play time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tiny Space Adventures tests your memory (and sometimes your patience), but it's consistently cute and enjoyable.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun and familiar - Brothers in Arms 2 opts for variety over freshness and largely succeeds in spite of its many minor shortcomings.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A few interface issues aside, World To Conquer is a fun and quick turn-based strategy game that's designed well for portable play.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bright and frantic arcade blast, Intake: Be Aggressive is sometimes a little too shouty for its own good.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Almost like as a dribbler's bible, Bonecruncher Soccer is a nice addition to this year's football line up, schooling the art of mazy runs in true arcade style.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A deceptively simple puzzler, Bardadum: The Kingdom Roads is equal parts challenging and rewarding.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    MiniGame Paradise is a slick and varied mini-game collection with optional in-app purchases that's slightly guilty of sacrificing gameplay for profit.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Day of the Viking has a few too many sharp edges, but if you stick with it there's a pretty decent game here.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slick, accessible platform-puzzler with a satisfying emphasis on fast reactions and quick thinking.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Zenonia 4 doesn't add anything to the template its predecessors have laid down, but that doesn't stop if from being an entertaining and engaging action-RPG.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    RayForce delivers coin-op shooting action straight out of 1993, but technical niggles and a ridiculously high asking price mean that it's unlikely to find a wide audience on the iPhone.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sticky Bees HD offers a tough but short challenge that's heavy on quick-thinking strategy.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Perfect for Phineas and Ferb fans and Where's My Water? obsessives who crave new levels - but casual Swampy fans will find plenty to do in the original.
