    Despite its slimey appearance, Fix the Leaks provides a solid experience.

    While it's well-made and decent to look at, 4 Thrones doesn't really have the gameplay to keep you entertained for long.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The freemium element isn't handled as well as it could be, but this is a decent game of cards with lasting appeal.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engaging little game with a neat hook, Trappped is well worth some of your time.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Soul Grinder mistakes making a game difficult with making a game fun, much to its detriment.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the Vita version of Rayman Legends is inferior to the rest, it's still a highly enjoyable platforming romp.

    Although we'd like better replay options, This Is Not a Test is well-presented and offers plenty of interesting story-based choices.
    • 84 Metascore

    It might start out as a closed book, but the more you play 868-Hack, the more you'll find to enjoy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Joining Hands 2 is another slice of gentle family-friendly entertainment that, while fun to play and pleasant to look at, tends to end up in a little too much trial and error for its own good.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Killzone: Mercenary is the best first-person shooter on the Vita, even though that's not saying much. It feels great, looks outstanding, and has a hugely addictive online multiplayer mode.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun chunk of same-room multiplayer gaming, Don't Fall in the Hole lacks a little depth, but in short blasts it's glorious.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A polished and well-contructed side-scrolling sandbox, Junk Jack X doesn't build much on the foundations of its predecessor, but what it adds is well worth exploring.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you're looking for a mighty challenge, then this may well be the music game for you. That's doubley so if you're still listening to the likes of Marilyn Manson and Papa Roach.

    • 40 Critic Score
    Heavy Fire: Black Arms 3D is the sequel that no one asked for. If you're a huge fan of shooting wave after wave of lifeless terrorist, you still won't want to play this game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A moving and sometimes painful experience, Blackbar deserves to be played by as many people as possible.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Death Mile delivers a good amount of entertainment for free, but misses the 'good game' mark by a mile.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A nicely executed comic book stapled to a sub-standard action-platformer, Bravoman: Binja Bash has its priorities all wrong.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A boring, tired rehash of a much better game, Grindcore isn't worth your time.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A decent enough freemium-builder crossed with a puzzler becomes wholly less palatable thanks to some obnoxiously long timers and so-so presentation.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun in short doses, and with a decent multiplayer mode, Fluid Football Versus doesn't quite have the chops to take on the big boys.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it's a reasonable take on Galcon's stripped back RTS formula, ControlCraft 3 doesn't offer a convincing case for how to take it forward.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intriguing experiment in play and social interaction, Indie Pixel might get a little repetitive, but it's an interesting game all the same
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Terraria's mix of creative crafting and endless exploration will keep you rapt for weeks. But a lack of multiplayer and some wonky touchscreen controls let the experience down.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Spelunky is a game that you need to own right this second, especially if you've never played it before. Just prepare to lose a large portion of your life to those depths.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Wakedas will give more casual players plenty of hours to swipe their way through.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An attractive tunnel racer marred by dodgy swipe controls and a confusing perspective.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A thoughtful and tightly executed expansion of Noughts and Crosses that will spark plenty of online grudge matches.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While it has occasional bright moments, Smash Bandits just isn't interesting enough to hold your attention for long.
