    While its roots are firmly planted in match-3 puzzles, Rescue Quest is still different enough to feel like something new.

    Satellina Zero's slick but simple arcade gameplay may grow repetitive, but offers twitchy thrills in short bursts.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engrossing, if repetitive, tap-to-jump title that offers a wide variety of gameplay and challenge in a simple package.

    While the revised touch controls offer a mixed bag of accessibility and annoyances, Final Fantasy still delivers simple, solid role-playing.

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a cheeky little affair with goofiness and laughter to spare. Just hope that there’s an early patch to shine up those minor imperfections.

    A movie tie-in that actually does some justice to its fun source material, this match-three puzzler is a retro delight.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A compelling and atmospheric slice of light strategy, undermined by its monetisation model.

    Puzzle Coaster is an enjoyable game with which to wind down, though the controls are more likely to stump you than the puzzles.

    Thanks to some iffy virtual controls and missing audio, Rayman Classic isn't quite a perfect port of the Atari Jaguar original.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The melodramatic use of weapons and curious lack of online multiplayer can't stop Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from offering cheap arcade racing thrills.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mutant Mudds is a great slice of retro-styled platforming for the 3DS, which just falls at the last few hurdles.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A promising concept that falls short of the finish line, sabotaged by tilt-screen tablet controls and lack of multiplayer functionality.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it isn't a bad game by any means, Slice the Ice doesn't do enough to make itself stand out in a ridiculously crowded market.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever and bright arcade shooter that's got enough going for it that you'll chase your scores for a good long while.
    • 71 Metascore

    The single-player game is enjoyable but disappointingly short-lived. Thankfully, the impressive multiplayer options improve things considerably.

    A bit broken in places, Gluey still offers up some enjoyable, if not revolutionary, puzzling fun.
    • 76 Metascore

    An intriguing look back at what the JRPG used to be, Dragon Quest II has enough going for it to make it a little more than a curio.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Following a slow start, Take It Easy develops into a surprisingly involving and multi-faceted puzzle game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    New Puzzle Bobble adds just enough gameplay gimmicks to freshen up its well-worn bubble-matching gameplay.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slow to get going, Cavemania nevertheless brings a new level of tactical skill to match-three gaming.
    • 75 Metascore

    A brainier episode than Metamorphosis, Ones & Zeroes might not be thrilling, but it asks some interesting questions all the same.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Where's My Geek? is a fun, funny, and more than a little wacky 'hidden object' game that does the rest of the series proud.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A stylishly well executed tap-based brawler with a rhythmic heart
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A jumble of gore and old ideas, Hellraid: The Escape is entertaining when it's at its best, and enjoyable when it's not.
    • 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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not perfect, but that's sort of the point. Goat Simulator is one-note and ridiculous, but it does it very well.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A charming, well thought out puzzler that doesn't rush you.
    • 79 Metascore

    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.
