    Robokill is an engrossing hybrid RPG-shooter that calls to mind classics of both genres, but it never reaches the same heights of either.

    Whilst its insanely steep difficultly level will alienate many, there's enough bullet-dodging action and excellent retro polish to ensure the hardcore will be satisfied.

    Smashing through Forged to Fight is a laugh, but it's not much more than that.

    Super 4 is a generic-looking puzzler that conceals a wealth of depth and playability beneath its uninspiring facade.
    • 76 Metascore

    X marks the spot for this portable treasure that loses a little lustre with long loading times, but shines with great levels and plenty of replay value.

    Fun, stylish and unique, Surveillant overcomes its relative brevity and sticky controls to stick out as one of the freshest iPhone experiences around.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A kickabout in the park rather than a Wembley final, but a kickabout with compulsion loops designed to keep you playing until long after you've been called home for tea.

    Shame about the loss of multiplayer, but for solo gamers Rocket Riot is a real blast - in bite-sized portions, at least.

    • 70 Critic Score
    An old-school platformer in the truest sense, Bloo Kid 2 may be thoroughly generic, but it makes commendably few concessions to the attention span-deficient modern iOS gamer.
    • 61 Metascore

    It might not be a challenge, but there's something eminently likeable about Globlins that manages to make it worthwhile.

    As old skool as they come, League of Evil delivers an action-packed platformer perfect for quick thrills.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pickpawket is a neat little puzzler with some big ideas, and while it won't set the world alight it's still well worth picking up.

    Gamelion shows it can make a fast-paced pseudo racing game with SpeedX 3D, but a paucity of content and experimentation will leave hardcore gamers cold.

    With Burn the Rope 3D, Big Blue Bubble may not quite add a whole new dimension to the original game, but it does successfully develop the formula with tighter controls and more interesting level design.

    Absolutely not a video game in any shape or form – but something that's more immediately useful than Brain Training and its ilk.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even Two-Face wouldn't leave this choice to chance - LEGO Batman delivers a now familiar adventure, but one that is packed with fun characters and provides much long-term enjoyment.

    It may be simple and it may rely far too heavily on its lush 8-bit visuals, but Witch & Hero provides you with some simple, silly fun on your 3DS in short bursts.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A faithful replication of a mentally taxing strategy board game, Neuroshima Hex is limited by its small selection of gameplay modes but offers an engrossing and complex multiplayer experience.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mixing quick thinking with fast fingers and a gothic setting, Helsing's Fire is a smart puzzler that's more about fun than challenge.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Strong writing and some fun scenarios save Back to the Future Ep1 HD from its control and performance issues.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly faithful recreation of the tone of the Metal Slug franchise, transposed to a tower defence game. Shame about the unstable and unfair multiplayer.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Striking the balance between realism and drama means Fight Night Champion is enjoyable, even if it lacks great controls and online multiplayer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Haste isn't a fresh game, but it's fast enough to sink its claws in pretty deep.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    DEO
    DEO doesn't stand out in the App Store because of its gameplay, but the dark atmosphere will draw you in.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, if pricey, game that will appeal to fans of Vocaloid and rhythm games.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it can't hold a candle to Infinity Blade - the game it so badly wants to emulate - Blood & Glory: Legend is nevertheless a fine pretender to Chair's fantasy epic.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Only the hardcore need apply. Shinobi is tough as old boots, and if you have the patience to master its ways, you'll find a very satisfying platformer.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    LostWinds is a wonderful treat, brimming with clever ideas and imaginative sights. It's just a massive shame that the controls took a big hit in the transition from Wii to iOS.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it accurately recreates the mechanics of the boardgame, Talisman Prologue HD's lack of multiplayer options and stringent quest structure make it a little less enjoyable than it should be.
