    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.

    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

    AdvenChewers is a surprisingly open and adventurous casual platformer built from otherwise familiar components.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strong and compelling RPG hidden under mountains of fan service. Marvelous AQL should seriously reconsider bringing sexy back if there's a sequel.

    Rakoo's Adventure is a bright and fresh casual auto-runner, though the gameplay can't quite live up to the standards set by the stellar cartoony visuals.
    • 74 Metascore

    It's beautifully put together and full of laughs, but the violence in Fist of Awesome gets old a little too quickly.

    A nice blend of styles and ideas, Pocket Titans isn't perfect, but it is a lot of good-natured fun.

    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The carnage is satisfying and the violence is meaty. Dead Trigger 2 might not be fresh, but it's solid, dependable fun.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even Up isn't the most exciting puzzler on the App Store, and it arguably suffers for its lack of penalties and rewards, but it's a decent replacement for Sudoku all the same.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though the game has some issues that make it unnecessarily frustrating, Mimpi is worth taking for a walk.
    • 63 Metascore

    It may be more of the same, but that's alright by us. CSR Classics is another quality round of car collecting, upgrading, and drag racing.
