    • 60 Critic Score
    An undeniably good-looking and kid-friendly flight game, Crash Birds Islands stalls thanks to a miserly in-app payment system.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An ├╝ber-casual time-waster which - like a knight tethered to a peg - ultimately fails to go anywhere, no matter how hard it tries.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The same old Tap Tap beat-matching gameplay we love, applied to an oddly restrictive structure we don't.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A not particularly impressive experiment in cross-platform storytelling, Electric City The Revolt has its moments, but they're too few and far between.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You're not buying much of a game with Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! but if you're of a creative persuasion, that shouldn't stop you from taking a closer look.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Flick Champions World Edition is more polished than its predecessor, but the new line-up of events simply isn't as accomplished.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Farming Simulator 2012 is slow, repetitive, ugly, and dull. But that doesn't mean it's not a relaxing and often addictive little diversion, too.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It might not have the longevity of its legendary cast of characters, but as long as you don't mind punching things a lot, Justice League: Earth's Final Defense will keep you entertained for a while.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A good-looking and accessible dungeon-crawler, Orc: Vengeance falls down with restrictive levels and woeful controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Monster Life is one of the prettiest and best constructed social freemium titles we've ever seen, but its core gameplay systems don't offer anything new or particularly interesting.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Happy Street is a charming freemium builder that fails to live up to its inspiration thanks to a gameplay-distorting freemium model.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    By abandoning the original and failing to match the best Temple Run clones on the market, Pitfall has misjudged its leap onto the iOS platform.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A bright and humorous point-and-click adventure with excellent dialogue but frustrating gameplay - just like they used to make 'em.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North is a freemium city-builder with genuine slow-burn appeal and a nifty social element, but it may just too much of a slog for the average player.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An enjoyable, engaging blend of two very different genres, but its focus on immediacy over depth makes for a game that's just far too ephemeral.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-designed, entertaining take on an excessively familiar formula that's simply too predictable to truly dazzle.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Picross e is definitely Picross, no doubt about that, but it doesn't really do anything we haven't already played numerous times before.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent but ridiculously overpriced JRPG with too many old ideas and not enough substance or excitement.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    In spite of its classy graphical flourishes, Infinite Warrior is too frustrating to really recommend.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Cosmic Bump is a decent casual puzzler with a fun pinball element, but its physics and reliance on luck don't quite do the rest of the game justice.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An absolutely gorgeous game, Wonderputt is let down by its clunky controls and a distinct lack of content.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Civil War: 1863 is an entertaining turn-based strategy game once it gets going, but its best ideas are too rarely employed and its presentation too dry for the game to appeal to a wider audience.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A great visual style and a whole heap of retro charm can't quite lift Recess Riot to the top of the playground pecking order.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It may not be a must buy title, but simple mechanics married with tricky level design provides a rather challenging game that, while frustrating, urges you to have one more try.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A good low-investment game whose experience is tarnished as you spend more time with it.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It might have interesting ideas, but Blade Guardian buries them under an uninspiring style and repetitive levels.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a strange emptiness at the core of Re-Volt Classic, and while it's sometimes enjoyable, you never feel like you're having as much fun as you should be.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Like a new lottery winner, Monopoly Millionaire makes a few immediately gratifying yet ultimately ill-advised changes to the way it does things.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it doesn't get the hidden object parts quite right, Hidden Runaway is still an interesting, if ultimately disappointing adventure.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It doesn't reinvent the endless-runner genre, but it's a good, low-investment game perfect for those obsessed with chasing leaderboard scores.
