    For big Minecraft fans, this episodic series should be a no-brainer. But for those who have never mined nor crafted, will the unexplained references, insider jokes, and - crucially - low-fi graphics be a turn off? Probably. If you don't know the terrifying result of putting three wither skulls on some soul sand, for example, you're going to struggle to keep up in this game.

    A charming, well thought out puzzler that doesn't rush you.

    A breezy attempt at streamlining the classic JRPG, Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 offers some neat ideas but arguably doesn't go far enough in modernising the genre.

    A retro arcade fizzer with a twist, Particle Mace isn't perfect, but it's worth a look all the same.

    It might be just another freemium time sink, but Hay Day does everything right, and for that it deserves some praise.

    Another great platformer for the Vita, Kung Fu Rabbit may not be the best-looking game on the device, but it's certainly among the most challenging.

    Looking for a tough arcade-style challenge? Prepare to be Brick Rolled.

    A less involved version of the 3DS rhythm game, this iOS venture is suited to those who have a deep love - and deep pockets - for Final Fantasy franchise.

    Control issues and a general lack of cohesion prevent Sega Superstars Tennis from totally stealing the show on Centre Court, but it nevertheless remains a commendable purchase.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A fine looking revamp of a classic board game, but it's still too random for serious strategy gamers.

    Galactrix reaches for the stars, but is grounded due to gameplay dominated by chance, minor control issues, and middling presentation.

    Too random to be an Angry Birds killer, polish and original ideas help at least make Chicken Balls HD a contender.

    A gloomy, intelligent platformer, Nihilumbra will keep you playing until the bitter end.

    It's more of the same. For some, that's going to be enough. But if you're looking for innovation in Angry Birds Star Wars II, you're going to be a little disappointed.

    Full of blood and death, Minigore 2: Zombies is a brief blast of gibbet-fuelled fun.

    Bouncy and fun yet inescapably facile, Hackycat wins our favour through an abundance of rewards and an irrepressible joie de vivre.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clearly inspired by Trials HD, Urban Trial Freestyle doesn't do enough to make it memorable, but the physics-racing is nevertheless fun, while it lasts.

    Flick Golf is a challenging take on the sport and a welcome – if occasionally frustrating – addition to the ball-flicking sub-genre.

    Call of Snakes sounds ridiculous but is actually quite fun. Good depth despite the overly-simplistic three-star level system.
    • 64 Metascore

    Fast paced and addictive, Gold Diggers is an arcade blast that ticks the right boxes.

    There's a lot to like in Astra, and if you're into leaping around planets then you're going to enjoy it.

    A top down, arena-based shooter with more to it than first meets the eye. Gamelion nail the basics of combat, throws dozens of enemies at you at once, and give you a solid chunk of weapons with which to wipe them out.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A solidly constructed, surprisingly addictive take on the endless-running genre. With dogs.

    Burn the Rope is an original and taxing accelerometer-driven puzzler, though its flames are dampened slightly by a lack of adequate feedback.

    True to its DS roots, Wire Way is a big game, which while offering hours of alien-flicking fun, also suffers somewhat from its scale.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A feast for the eyes, RAGE doesn't make the most of its fun arcade action as it's missing some standard features.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite one or two control inadequacies, Blackout represents a creditable attempt at offering up something new to the match-three puzzle genre.

    Despite a few irritating stages, this remains a blisteringly fast and entertaining Sonic outing.

    Despite the premise, and the look, Apples vs. Robots can be shockingly fun.

    An entertaining little puzzler, Be Together doesn't quite have the style or the ingenuity to be a must-buy.
