    • 70 Critic Score
    Tiny Space Adventures tests your memory (and sometimes your patience), but it's consistently cute and enjoyable.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Shamefully enjoyable, and somewhat broken, Dynasty Warriors 8 doesn't disappoint.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Light on story but heavy on gameplay, Yumi's Odd Odyssey will as surely delight platformer connoisseurs as it will confound casual players.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With excellent visuals and plenty to do, this demanding game of strategy, management, and combat only appeals to a specific crowd, but serves that crowd well.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not perfect, and the controls in particular are annoying, but there's a decent management sim here all the same.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You absolutely must see what Wind-up Knight 2 has to offer, but whether you'll want to commit to the full version or not largely depends on how much you want to play another (very highly polished) auto-runner.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A tactile combination of Threes! and match-three puzzler gameplay, SideSwype is perhaps a little too streamlined for its own good.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although Ragnarok Odyssey Ace falls into many of the same pitfalls as its predecessor, it still offers a fair amount of fun if you don't overthink it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engaging platformer that misses a few steps, Leo's Fortune is still well worth a look.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're happy to play by its rules, Word Monsters is a polished puzzler packed with content that'll keep you busy for a week or two.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might not fully live up to its promise, but Third Eye Crime is good enough that you'll find something to enjoy.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Kind of Soccer is the kind of casual coffee time gaming that we bought an iPhone for. Easy, fun, and forgettable.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While Dead Nation is showing signs of age, there's still life in the old girl yet.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sweet-natured and appealing puzzler with a smattering of rhythm action. Entertaining but brief and a bit lacking in depth.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bright and frantic arcade blast, Intake: Be Aggressive is sometimes a little too shouty for its own good.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You might be surprised where the actual meat of the game lies, but Warhammer 40,000: Carnage is a well put together, entertaining diversion.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fast-paced, clever dodge-'em-up, Dextris has enough going for it that it's definitely worth a look.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly expansive platformer that combines Game Boy visuals with open level design to decent effect.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good distraction for anyone who's looking for a new infinite runner with a dash of personality, but not a game that will be long remembered.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Denpa Men 3 is as surreal as it is enjoyable. If you've been waiting for an RPG to lose yourself in, The Denpa Men 3 is sure to scratch that itch.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A challenging and surprisingly fresh physics-puzzler that walks the fine line between frustration and freshness.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's fun to be had with its sharp-edged bike blasting, but SXPD is a little on the small side.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unexpectedly challenging and fun, Producing Perfection is an excellent idol simulator that's only held back by its limited amount of content and repetitious gameplay.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bill Killem is a notch above typical endless runners thanks to the ability to shoot down whatever's in your way.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Controversy aside, Tomodachi Life is a pleasingly directionless life-sim-lite that fans of Animal Crossing should investigate further.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The first half of Broken Age is charming, gorgeous, and well written. But some might find the obvious puzzles and softer tone aren't quite what they were hoping for.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sharp, short arcade experience. Revolve may not stick in your head for long, but it's still good fun while it lasts.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly blockbuster of a game that wants desperately to be on something other than a touchscreen device. Godfire: Rise of Prometheus has a meaty bounce to it, but its lack of subtlety will likely be too much for some to take.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sharply drawn free-roaming action game that combines knock-about combat with a steadily expanding world to explore.
