    It's pouty, it's pink, it's pretty darn good - Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique is the game to get your non-gamer sister / daughter / niece this Christmas, and they'll never know you've snuck them a shockingly hardcore management game with excellent production values.

    Help Volty is a charming, engrossing little puzzle game, but one that comes with a few disappointments and frustrations.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lego The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game is fundamentally a good game based on a great licence, but it's let down by the squiffy port to Vita.

    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Occasionally messy, often offensive, but sometimes brilliant, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is a blend of entertainment and frustration unlike anything else.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might not do much with the famous franchise, but The Walking Dead: Assault still manages to offer some enjoyably tense, if simplistic, shoot-and-loot action.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mutant Mudds remains a fun yet frustrating experience on iOS, with its quirky plane-switching mechanic going some way to making up for its frustratingly exacting 2D platform gameplay.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It won't win awards for innovation or style, but Offroad Legends is still an entertaining little game.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Full of blood and death, Minigore 2: Zombies is a brief blast of gibbet-fuelled fun.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Freeze is a simple and rather drab-looking game, but its tactile physics-based gameplay and imaginative level design lifts it above the humdrum.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pudding Monsters is cute, creative, and eminently playable. But it's a bit too familiar, and a bit too easy, to be a truly essential puzzler.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Captivating art and fun gameplay come together in this runner. With a few tweaks to the controls, this will be an extremely solid title.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might lack a bit in variety, but if the idea sounds like a good one to you, there's plenty here to enjoy.
    • 81 Metascore

    Challenging, competitive word-searching make Wordament a game worth playing whether you're padding your Live stats or not.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Crimson Shroud is one of the most finely crafted games available on the Nintendo 3DS, though the tabletop setting may prove difficult for some to engage with.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Familiar gameplay doesn't take away from Swing King's fun and challenging presentation.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tokyo Crash Mobs takes the crown as the Nintendo 3DS's weirdest game yet, with potentially dull match-three action that is rejuvenated by silliness.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less a breath of fresh air, more a blast of air conditioning, Temple Run 2 adds little to the endless-runner genre, though it is fun. It's just not the shot in the arm some of us were hoping for.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it's limited in scope and replayability, Haunt the House: Terrortown is enjoyable and charming enough to make you forgive its shortcomings.
    • 42 Metascore

    Give Crystal Adventure a chance, and you'll find some great gameplay behind its lacklustre aesthetic.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Half-3D action game, half-strategic tower defence game, the rough-and-ready Heroes and Castles combines its elements well to create a tough and rewarding genre mash-up.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This match-three-puzzler-in-RPG-clothing adds just enough flavour to spice up its otherwise passable gameplay.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A delightfully silly physics-puzzler that's slightly derivative but highly entertaining.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Little Inferno is a smart and subversive work of art that pokes fun at freemium games. But its dedication to the joke often hurts the fun little physics toy at the core.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it may lack the depth of some other racers on the App Store, Table Top Racing has enough gusto and playability to make it a winner.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The excellent game book engine underneath can't quite iron out House of Hell's problems. It's still a good game, but it pales somewhat in comparison to its predecessor.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might not have layers of intrigue or mystery, but Roar Rampage has exactly the right amount of destruction required to put a smile on your face.
