    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unsurprisingly, this Metal Slug 2 remake has all the same strengths and most of the weaknesses - which is to say it's a cracking platform-shooter with iffy virtual controls.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With an endearing art-style and fine puzzling action, Sushi Mushi nevertheless has a few rough edges.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Legends of the Titan is the perfect definition of niche RPG gaming, catering for the hardcore but leaving more casual players in the lurch.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A polished and well presented game, Super Stickman Golf 2 doesn't always get its angles right, but when it does it's an awful lot of fun.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What Monster Hunter lacks in communication, it more than makes up for in quantity and quality of content.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Le Vamp is a cute and enjoyable - if not groundbreaking - endless-runner that takes few risks.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bobbing is no picnic, but if you've got the patience to deal with its stringent demands you'll find a lot to enjoy in its creative, intelligently designed gameplay.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the Unmechanical controls can be infuriating sometimes, the game is still a hugely entertaining and engaging adventure.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It won't be to everyone's liking, but Master of Alchemy Vengeance Front is an engaging, tough little puzzler all the same.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Alien Breed is a bit of a dinosaur now, but its new coat of paint definitely helps to give it a new lease of life.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solitaire Blitz is vintage PopCap, with peerlessly addictive gameplay and quietly impressive presentation. Unfortunately, the freemium payment model will be a barrier for many.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A quick and entertaining arcade blast, Magicka isn't perfect, but it'll make you smile all the same.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rich and vibrant platformer with one or two control and balance issues that prevent it from joining the list of the best console conversions on iOS.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A concise and enjoyable action RPG-lite with an irritating - but not deal-breaking - IAP system.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slayin is a solid casual game that chooses its influences wisely but doesn't entirely do them justice.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's so much to absorb here, but all of it's made to a decent standard, with the element-based jousting a particular highlight
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though Mr. Crab is a clever and entertaining platformer, there's nothing fresh about it. It's still worth some attention, mind.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple, entertaining arcade fun, Bottle Cap Blitz doesn't have a huge shelf life but it'll keep you smiling for a while.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A nicely presented, if largely unexceptional, physics-based puzzler that's inventive enough to entertain for the duration of its relatively swift run-time.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A challenging, gorgeously presented take on the Angry Birds formula that proves satisfyingly cerebral, even if repetition does eventually set in.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Quite possibly Kemco's most accomplished mobile effort so far, Symphony of the Origin looks and sounds stunning, but suffers from a poor English localisation which has an impact on the quality of the story. Even so, it's worth a look if you're a fan of the genre.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fans of the scrolling-text style of iOOTP Baseball will be in their element in this edition. And while the gameplay itself remains familiar and unchanged, it may not prove quite compelling enough for all but the most ardent slugger fans.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that's simple to pick up but requires some practice, Fish Out Of Water! is an enjoyable sea creature-flinging romp.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Those yearning for another Lego adventure would do well to invest in Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    They Need To Be Fed 2 offers more of the same platform-physics action as its predecessor, albeit with a couple of tasty twists at the end. It's a shame you have to wait for the truly interesting stuff, though, and the game's controls never quite click as they should.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This rooftop scramble is hugely playable, but is undermined somewhat by the greedy in-app purchasing system which saps away some of the enjoyment.
