    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.

    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
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's messy in places, but Orgarhythm is a compelling mixture of strategy and rhythm that you won't see anywhere else.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A focused, thoroughly enjoyable - if somewhat shallow - take on the classic side-scrolling shooter.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining little puzzler, Be Together doesn't quite have the style or the ingenuity to be a must-buy.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might not be the perfect fit for touchscreen devices, but Metal Slug 2 is still an awful lot of fun.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining platformer with a decent chunk of content, Cordy 2 will keep you playing for a good while, but it doesn't bring anything new to the platform genre.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Finding Teddy's hands-off approach will likely be too much for many to take, but there's an intriguing and enthralling point-and-click adventure here that's just waiting to be discovered.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With a bit of sprucing up here and there, Sumioni: Demon Arts could be a keeper. In its current form, there's still plenty to enjoy.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sure to put a smile on your face, Life of Pixel is a simple and fun adventure that's only slightly tarnished by its short lifespan and tricky levels
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This good-looking homage to the Donkey Kong is a fine addition to the endless-runner genre, but don't go expecting any daring innovation to accompany those lush graphics.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Puzzle Retreat is a well-conceived casual puzzler whose only flaws are a lack of spark and variety.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bouncy and fun yet inescapably facile, Hackycat wins our favour through an abundance of rewards and an irrepressible joie de vivre.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A generous, quietly entertaining puzzle game that's only slightly let down by a lack of variety and sedate difficulty curve.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Beautiful to look at and fun to play, Blade Lords offers straightforward one-on-one fighting action but relies too much on in-app purchases to keep things ticking over.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Broken, silly, and a little bit marvellous, Backflip Madness does exactly what its name suggests.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If it weren't for the controls, Cognition: Episode One would be a must-buy. But it's worth playing all the same.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clearly inspired by Trials HD, Urban Trial Freestyle doesn't do enough to make it memorable, but the physics-racing is nevertheless fun, while it lasts.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though Ragnarok Odyssey is a dumbed-down RPG that won't please stat-fiends, it's still pretty great at what it does.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfectly playable endless runner, Sonic Dash is entertaining enough, but highlights how far the series has come since its glory days.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Easy to pick up and difficult to put down, Puzzle & Dragons delivers exactly what it promises to.
