    A short, sharp burst of arcade fun, Accidental Spelunking isn't the best looking game in the world, but it is an awful lot of fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A realistic simulation of the sport that offers up an enjoyable boxing experience, and is only let down by lacklustre training modes and touchscreen controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While not completely free of the flaws it highlights in other role-playing games, Fara's tongue-in-cheek humour cannot fail to evoke a smile from even the most stony-faced RPG player.

    Drei is a clever take on an old formula - assuming you can find someone to play it with, that is.

    Only minor improvements, but if you missed Age of Zombies the first time, this update is great fun in small doses.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite the reliance on cardboard and other stale tropes, The Adorables is as fun as it is challenging.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While sticklers might argue that Magic Made Fun isn't really a game, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had in mastering its array of unique and sometimes ingenious tricks.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Broken, silly, and a little bit marvellous, Backflip Madness does exactly what its name suggests.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A quicker, more hectic on-rails shooter than the original, Top Gun 2 just can't shake the annoying boss battles and hard to see enemy fire from its tailpipe.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Three-point turn failure in real life? Validate yourself with this clever, oddly gripping touchscreen parking sim. Just don't expect it to get you through HGV driver test.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not enough Assassin's Creed to appeal to a big new audience, and not different enough in its gameplay to tempt card battler fans away from their current fixes, Assassin's Creed Memories is a disappointment.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Joust Legend does get a tad repetitive, but the crunchy combat is entertaining enough to make the game worthy of a purchase.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Small and satisfying - just as any good treat should be - Snack Match is a brilliant bit of bite-sized gaming, let down by a lack of imagination in its gameplay systems and slow load times.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A perfectly playable endless runner, Sonic Dash is entertaining enough, but highlights how far the series has come since its glory days.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The price might be right, but Eliminate has a few wrongs that need correction: matchmaking issues, weapon imbalances, and a couple control quirks which shoot holes in the fun.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A subtle reinvention of the Flappy Bird-like impossible flyer, 8bit Doves relies on charm and interesting controls to drag you through its simple gameplay.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly shooter with lots of zombies to plough through, Dead Effect is far from a classic. But it is brainless fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good-looking, deep and engaging package that should be in any self-respecting gamer's collection, save for the fact that many who lack the skill, talent and time to succeed in it won't be able to access at least half of what's on offer.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though the game has some issues that make it unnecessarily frustrating, Mimpi is worth taking for a walk.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solitaire Blitz is vintage PopCap, with peerlessly addictive gameplay and quietly impressive presentation. Unfortunately, the freemium payment model will be a barrier for many.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fittingly shallow and suitably silly, this auto-runner is one of the better examples of the genre, if still limited in its appeal.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With Infinity Blade 3, Chair turns the thrilling sword-fighting series into a huge adventure. The reliance on frequent deaths and forced grinding, however, is an infuriating relic from previous games.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it isn't quite the game it could be, Extreme Justice is nevertheless a polished, outrageous and – most importantly – highly competent video game equivalent of the kind of films that have turned high-camp action into an art form.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Alphadia2 doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen previously, but those who appreciate old skool Japanese RPGs will find little to complain about.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A generous package of casual online multiplayer games that, while not particularly distinguished in any single area, contains a generous spirit and a compelling risk-reward system.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Archetype is a great-looking and fun shooter, but it has improvements to make before becoming the essential iPhone shooter.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strong ending to a good series, if you've pushed past the technical issues this far then there's no reason why you shouldn't complete the set.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Baby Monkey (riding backwards on a pig) is just as addictive as the YouTube video - but just as repetitious, too.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A tough and angry old-school shooter, Ammo Pigs will scratch a retro itch quite nicely.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another crazed, retro blast from the mind of Jeff Minter, FiveADay is a little tricky to get to grips with, but once it clicks it's hilarious fun.
