    The Dungeon Hunter series has always been a bit of a blunt object, and this third instalment is no different. In spite of its controversial move to a freemium model, Dungeon Hunter 3 is still an entertaining, violent romp.

    DungeonUp's gameplay could stand some tweaks to make it more fun versus frustrating, but what's here is engaging.

    A nice game of tricks and tribulations, traditionalist Trials fans might be put off by Frontier, but newcomers will lap it up.

    A pleasantly simple puzzler with a straight-forward premise, though it rarely ascends to the level of greatness.

    A fun, if simple, async RPG experience that makes you glad to have friends.

    Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds's crisp visuals, compelling crime-themed story, and assorted mini-games compensate for a lack of interactivity.

    A lack of content clips its wings, but Flapcraft is a real hoot while it lasts. Definitely a flight worth taking.

    As far as film tie-ins go, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is easily one of the better ones, but it's doesn't compare so well to the other Lego tie-ins.

    A simple, well-presented and fun game, iBomber 2 builds on the original with enough additions and improvements to keep the experience fresh.

    Necklace of Skulls isn't a perfect game book, but it still tells a colourful and enjoyable story.

    There's fun to be had with Snowboard Party, but after a while you'll probably pull out your PlayStation and play some of the much better games that inspired it.

    It might have limited appeal, but there's a solid and enjoyable rhythm-action game beneath Santa Rockstar's festive pomp.

    Paper Monsters is a beautiful, imaginative, and charming, and technically proficient platformers that's only let down by less than stellar gameplay.

    Finger Derpy strives to be the silliest horse racing game on the digital marketplace, and it pretty much succeeds.

    There are a couple of nice ideas in Brickies, and it's fun, but it's really just another block breaker.

    A little too easy and restricted in terms of solutions, Empire Builders: Ancient Egypt is a perfectly playable economic strategy game, but lacks the character of the Build-a-Lot series.

    While some of the seven games here suffer from irritating loading issues, much of Metal Slug Anthology emerges unscathed and victorious to offer amongst the finest shooting on PSP.

    Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is an interesting take on boarding, but variety comes at the expense of true excellence.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A novel gravity-centric take on the traditional karting formula, jAggy Race is betrayed by its meagre level selection.
    • 68 Metascore

    Strange, obtuse, and a little unfair, BreakQuest Extra Evolution is a more artistic take on the typical game of Breakout.

    If you can get past the old-fashioned first chunk of the game, Toy Shot has plenty of interesting new ideas to keep you entertained.

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

    More jumpy than scary. Lost Within has a few nice ideas, but it won't leave you psychologically scarred, which is a shame.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intense dash to infinity that's entertainingly frenetic, if a little too flimsy to hang out with the big boys.

    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.
    • 71 Metascore

    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.

    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.
