    Alien Breed is a bit of a dinosaur now, but its new coat of paint definitely helps to give it a new lease of life.

    Solitaire Blitz is vintage PopCap, with peerlessly addictive gameplay and quietly impressive presentation. Unfortunately, the freemium payment model will be a barrier for many.

    A quick and entertaining arcade blast, Magicka isn't perfect, but it'll make you smile all the same.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rich and vibrant platformer with one or two control and balance issues that prevent it from joining the list of the best console conversions on iOS.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A concise and enjoyable action RPG-lite with an irritating - but not deal-breaking - IAP system.
    • 78 Metascore

    Slayin is a solid casual game that chooses its influences wisely but doesn't entirely do them justice.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's so much to absorb here, but all of it's made to a decent standard, with the element-based jousting a particular highlight

    Though Mr. Crab is a clever and entertaining platformer, there's nothing fresh about it. It's still worth some attention, mind.
    • 78 Metascore

    Simple, entertaining arcade fun, Bottle Cap Blitz doesn't have a huge shelf life but it'll keep you smiling for a while.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A nicely presented, if largely unexceptional, physics-based puzzler that's inventive enough to entertain for the duration of its relatively swift run-time.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A challenging, gorgeously presented take on the Angry Birds formula that proves satisfyingly cerebral, even if repetition does eventually set in.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Quite possibly Kemco's most accomplished mobile effort so far, Symphony of the Origin looks and sounds stunning, but suffers from a poor English localisation which has an impact on the quality of the story. Even so, it's worth a look if you're a fan of the genre.

    Fans of the scrolling-text style of iOOTP Baseball will be in their element in this edition. And while the gameplay itself remains familiar and unchanged, it may not prove quite compelling enough for all but the most ardent slugger fans.
    • 67 Metascore

    A game that's simple to pick up but requires some practice, Fish Out Of Water! is an enjoyable sea creature-flinging romp.
    • 62 Metascore

    Those yearning for another Lego adventure would do well to invest in Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    They Need To Be Fed 2 offers more of the same platform-physics action as its predecessor, albeit with a couple of tasty twists at the end. It's a shame you have to wait for the truly interesting stuff, though, and the game's controls never quite click as they should.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This rooftop scramble is hugely playable, but is undermined somewhat by the greedy in-app purchasing system which saps away some of the enjoyment.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Serialised horror stories and serious fitness come together in a way that few would think possible in this oddball fitness app.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a lot to like in Gun Commando's retro remodelling of the FPS, but it's hampered somewhat by the clumsy nature of the touchscreen controls.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It may be simple and it may rely far too heavily on its lush 8-bit visuals, but Witch & Hero provides you with some simple, silly fun on your 3DS in short bursts.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it accurately recreates the mechanics of the boardgame, Talisman Prologue HD's lack of multiplayer options and stringent quest structure make it a little less enjoyable than it should be.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While blasting aliens out of the sky can be fun, Star Command lacks the depth of true space sim.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    No online multiplayer will stop the GG hardcore needing to pick up a copy, and its high difficulty will be too abrasive for new players. It's still a technically superb fighting game, though, even if very few people should bother owning it.
    • 74 Metascore

    The first Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery episode definitely has the style. Now, it just needs more substance in its puzzles to back that style up.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun and diverting little tower defence game, Go Home Dinosaurs doesn't offer enough to be a classic, but it's worth a punt all the same.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fast, frantic, and fun, Gravity Guy 2 has a twist up its sleeve that distinguishes it from most other endless-runners. You can't help but enjoy playing it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big, dumb game full of glorious crashes and glowing power-ups, Redline Rush might not be subtle, but it is a lot of fun.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever, brilliantly designed, and dripping with new ideas, Bombcats is a great addition to the animal-flinging genre.
    • 65 Metascore

    After a rocky start, Blitz Brigade has solidified into a fine online team-based shooter, albeit one with lingering connectivity issues and an OTT freemium economy.
