    PlunderNauts is an attractive ship combat game with plenty of depth. It's a depth you'll have to work hard to reveal, though.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Word Puttz's free-to-play formula might rankle with word game purists, but if you're looking for casual, light-hearted word play, you'll find it under the sea.
    • 61 Metascore

    It might not be a challenge, but there's something eminently likeable about Globlins that manages to make it worthwhile.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great-looking sci-fi shooter that sacrifices depth in order to play out a particularly cinematic brand of space battle.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Prime World: Defenders is tower defence-meets-card collecting. And while there's plenty of meat on the bones, some irksome issues take the shine off things slightly.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rich evocation of the wonders of Westeros, marred slightly by an overly light strategy model and significantly by egregious free-to-play elements.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A treat for the eyes and ears, The Collectables mixes top-notch presentation with rote but enjoyable gameplay to good effect.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tappingo is a fresh take on the grid-based puzzle genre and the perfect treat for your brain and fingers when you need to kill a few minutes.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might creak a little under the weight of extended play sessions, but there's a good bite of arcade action in 15 Coins all the same
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A nice game of tricks and tribulations, traditionalist Trials fans might be put off by Frontier, but newcomers will lap it up.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 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.
