    • 70 Critic Score
    A polished and precise tower defence title, Siegecraft TD does little to change the tested formula, but that's not too much of a bad thing.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pleasantly simple puzzler with a straight-forward premise, though it rarely ascends to the level of greatness.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple and entertaining airborne blaster, MetalStorm: Aces isn't revolutionary, but it's pretty enjoyable.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    War. What is it good for? A pretty decent builder / battler that will appeal to the more domineering fans of freemium strategy on mobile.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sqwords is an addictive word game that anyone can play, though the presence of in-app purchases might cheese some players off.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A twee and entertaining sim, Smooth Operators isn't perfect, but it's deep enough to satisfy the call centre-running urges of most.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tiny Thief is a charming reduction of the point-and-click adventure, though its charm and polish cover over some pretty basic trial-and-error gameplay.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple and linear, Sprinkle Islands never allows room to think, but it's reasonably entertaining all the same.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Diner Dash hits breakneck speeds and is sure to tempt in fans of the series once more, but there's little new to get excited about here.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This compelling and appealingly hard-edged strategy is a few tactical adjustments away from achieving its goals. Worth a look.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In case you haven't had enough puzzle platforming on PS Vita, Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark provides the goods.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It can become repetitive and roguelike fans may find it too easy going, but Dungeonism is a refreshingly accessible take on a familiar genre.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A tasking and entertaining arcade blast, Futuridium EP is let down by its occasionally inaccurate controls.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A Ride Into The Mountains is a ramshackle indie effort with frustrating controls and poor translation, but it's also imaginative, charming, and worth 69p.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Significant technical issues currently hamper an otherwise strong title that represents as much a love letter to Ultima as it does a new way of freemium RPG design.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Chillaxian delivers what its name promises: an arcade shooter that manages to be challenging and mellow.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gorgeous to look at and fun to play, Lightning Fighter 2's biggest weakness is the greediness of the developer.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable maze-based puzzler with a slightly annoying lead character. If you can put up with a lead that has the odd sulk, you should download it now.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Looking for a tough arcade-style challenge? Prepare to be Brick Rolled.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Floating Cloud God Saves The Pilgrims in HD is a fine shmup, although it doesn't really offer much new over the original.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fast paced and addictive, Gold Diggers is an arcade blast that ticks the right boxes.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's fun and challenging, and there's a lot of content, but for all of that, Pirate Legends TD doesn't add much to the tower defence genre.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy sequel to a much-loved original, but one that suffers from structural changes introduced to accommodate IAP.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Swift Revenge is a very decent auto-scroller in which you're taken on a tour of different eras.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Terraria's mix of creative crafting and endless exploration will keep you rapt for weeks. But a lack of multiplayer and some wonky touchscreen controls let the experience down.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Call of Duty: Strike Team is one-part clumsy FPS, and one-part satisfying top-down strategy game. Spend most of your time with the latter and you'll be guaranteed a pretty good time.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly fresh endless-runner full of charm and humour. No real improvements to the genre formula here, though.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It may be ugly and unrefined in its presentation, but this is a smart, challenging, and surprisingly substantial strategy game.
