    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.

    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.

    Looking for a tough arcade-style challenge? Prepare to be Brick Rolled.

    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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A realistic simulation of the sport that offers up an enjoyable boxing experience, and is only let down by lacklustre training modes and touchscreen controls.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Joust Legend does get a tad repetitive, but the crunchy combat is entertaining enough to make the game worthy of a purchase.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The race for the best driving game on mobile almost got interesting, but 2K Drive has too many technical issues to truly keep up with the very best in the field.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly shooter with lots of zombies to plough through, Dead Effect is far from a classic. But it is brainless fun.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With Infinity Blade 3, Chair turns the thrilling sword-fighting series into a huge adventure. The reliance on frequent deaths and forced grinding, however, is an infuriating relic from previous games.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's more of the same. For some, that's going to be enough. But if you're looking for innovation in Angry Birds Star Wars II, you're going to be a little disappointed.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ookibloks is a bright and fresh little puzzler. There's an awful lot to like about its mixture of cuteness and logic.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A dark veil of skin-crawling despair wraps around Lone Survivor's tight aesthetics, although as this begins to wear off, you may find the mechanics underneath a little too repetitive
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A twisted and engaging puzzler with a few frustrating sections, Incredipede is - on balance - still worth your time.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slow to get going, Cavemania nevertheless brings a new level of tactical skill to match-three gaming.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A typically polished footy game with a surprisingly generous freemium model. But EA needs to improve the way it plays touchscreen football if it's to keep the paying punters happy for FIFA 15.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ignore the fact that this is attached to a licence, and look past the few faults it currently has, and you'll find that DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot is an excellent team-based multiplayer shooter, with solid controls and great visuals.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Divekick's ultra-basic approach is a revelation if you're looking to understand fighting games. And if you're prepared to look past the in-jokes found here, then this is an essential purchase.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat little sim, but once you get down to the bones of the matter, Pocket Trains is a little too similar to its airborne predecessor.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Worms Revolution Extreme is a good Worms game, with solid controls and great multiplayer action. But it is just another Worms game, and we're a little bit sick of those.
