    An engaging little game with a neat hook, Trappped is well worth some of your time.

    There's fun to be had here. But while Vlad's strengths are many, its weaknesses stick their heads up a little too often.

    A retro styled, arcade blast from the non-specific past, Box Cat is fun, frantic and well presented, but its progression system and repetition might not be to everyone's taste.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fresh twist on a genre that's starting to grow stale, Potshot Pirates won't be to everyone's tastes, but it is a lot of fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strong tower defence game that does very little new, but doesn't put a foot wrong, either.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Obviously inspired by Advance Wars, EndWar adds enough interesting elements of its own to make it worthy of consideration.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent gaming snack, but Kirby Squeak Squad is unlikely to satisfy those hungry for a challenge.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gurk III - the 8-bit RPG is an authentically old school experience. It's a warts and all re-creation of a bygone era of role-playing. It's tough, tactical, and sure to be divisive.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not the toughest game out there, but there's a lot to like about House of Shadows's approach to touchscreen stealth.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid and good-looking puzzle game that was pipped to the post by its more characterful rival.
    • 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.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Gunman Clive 2 is full of good ideas and surprises, but it can often feel a little flat.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less game, more interactive narrative: this curious and very distinct release weaves a lengthy tale of samurais and love to good effect.

    About as Zen as a rock concert, Zen Training is a quick puzzle game that juxtaposes tranquility with frantic gameplay in all the right ways.

    7x7
    This block-matching puzzle title is appealing enough to hold your attention, but the relatively lackluster presentation might prove too off-putting for some.

    Twin Blades isn't revolutionary but its graphics and upgrading make it a decent side-scrolling action game.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pokémon Art Academy won't make up for you being inherently bad at art, but if you're interested in Pokémon, and drawing, it's a solid purchase.

    A tasking and entertaining arcade blast, Futuridium EP is let down by its occasionally inaccurate controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Easy to pick up and difficult to master, the deceptively twee Hopeless: The Dark Cave is a perfect game for short bursts of entertainment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pirate's Treasure is a doubloon in the giant chest of twin-stick shooters: it's worth its weight, even if it's only one of many.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engrossing tower defence game that takes a slightly different - if occasionally awkward - route to success.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good tennis game for the dedicated player looking for a sim-like gaming experience. But for most, Virtua Tennis 3 is more appealing, accessible and, ultimately, fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Sims 3: Ambitions builds on the core game with a welcome slate of new features, even if they don't make for a must-have expansion pack.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The upgrade-focused gameplay means that skill doesn't count for much in Asterix: Megaslap, but it's jolly good fun all the same.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While not quite worthy of a Michelin star, fans of the film and kids looking for fun will be thrilled. It might not offer the biggest of helpings but, while it lasts, Ratatouille tastes great.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A shiny, reasonably well put together game, Offroad Legends 2 just doesn't have the zip of its inspiration.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Perfection! is a decently challenging puzzle game that will leave you seeing dots and arrows for some time.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Armageddon is a straightforward castle vs. castle battler that opts for simplicity and a high level of difficulty over creativity and depth.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A colourful iteration on Pong, Bit.Trip Beat is to be enjoyed in spite of its structural shortcomings.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Part timing, part luck, Canabalt is the kind of quick-fix that has the potential to become a phenomenon, the game's free-running fix giving players a new kind of high score to chase.
