    A clever take on the bowling genre, Undead Bowling is entertaining for a while, but soon succumbs to repetition.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An occasionally interesting shooter, Abyss Attack is a little too flat to really recommend.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tough and unrelenting, Gleamer has its moments, but it's not quite the full package.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid point-and-click adventure, Cognition: Episode 2 is a decent enough sequel, though it lacks the bite of the original.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    No online hurts its longevity, and the generic game design fails to set it apart from the crowd, but deep down there's a fun but flawed auto-runner here.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Impossible Line is a puzzle/memory game that should keep you entertained for a little while, but it won't make any lasting marks on your soul.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Making a tiny 'splish' on the App Store, rather than an almighty 'splash', Jelly Splash is a slightly novel entry in a very familiar puzzle sub-genre.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Link the Slug is a bright and polished puzzler, but its lack of spark and ingenuity leaves it feeling a little flaccid.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A deeply ordinary third-person shooter made considerably more interesting by the addition of co-op multiplayer.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rage of Bahamut, but with a Star Wars twist: if you're sworn off card battlers then there's nothing for you here, but Star Wars fans just might find their next unhealthy addiction.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The main gameplay can be a little tiring over long periods of play, but Boom! Tanks is otherwise a compulsive game of simple tank combat.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A stealth-action game that isn't lacking in bright ideas, Riddick: The Merc Files clouds its best bits with a generally clunky, unfinished feel.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A charming building game that's full of potential. The core systems and menus are just too much like hard work for all but the most dedicated of virtual grafters, though.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Cave is a really disappointing adventure. It's not very funny, not very clever, and those finicky touchscreen controls are a regular source of frustration.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Drop That Candy is tasty, but you probably won't want to stuff your face with it.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's fun to be had here, but Nakama doesn't have enough meat on its bones to really recommend.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This rookie has potential, but it needs some work before it can earn its wings.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a decent game here, but Machines at War 3 is far from original, and a little too rough around the edges to wholeheartedly recommend.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An interesting amalgam of tower defence and castle defence, Steampunk Tower seizes up a little with its monotonous mechanics.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If your favourite take on Batman is the 'biff-bang-pow' kind rather than the 'world's greatest detective' kind, then you'll find plenty to like in this straight-forward button-mashing brawler.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Excellent controls and great graphics don't make this endless-runner feel like anything more than a routine jog.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dual Destinies is disappointing. In general it's more of the same Phoenix Wright we've come to know and love, but the stories and characters are horribly weak.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid twin-stick shooter with an interesting evolutionary twist, but the execution doesn't quite match up to the concept.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Strike Wing: Raptor Rising has the core of a great 3D space shooter, but it's lack of a proper structure and misjudged IAP system torpedo its chances.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There are a few enjoyable moments, but Oil Rush doesn't manage to thread them together into an entertaining whole.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a great puzzle game here, but Fright Heights loses itself too often in difficulty spikes and cruelty.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Quick to pick up but difficult to master, Hometown Story's a tough sell but will yield an investment of enjoyable, quick play sessions if you're patient.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Presenting colourful soccer action in a pleasingly strategic way, Soccer Moves just lacks a little of the fluidity and expansiveness of the great game.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-put-together endless-runner, Miner Problem is as generic as they come.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Spirit Stones is a solid puzzle-battle game, but progression is difficult if you don't want to spend money on new cards and stamina refills.
