    • 60 Critic Score
    Fast, fun, and frenetic, this match-three RPG needs a bit more polish to be recommended without reservation.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has a few stand-out moments, but too often Dream Chaser puts a wall between you and your enjoyment.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Indiana Stone is witty and attractive, but at its heart it's a fairly uninspired and unremarkable endless-runner.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Mechanically the best of the series and a genuinely accomplished action-RPG in its own right, Dungeon Hunter 4 blows it with a ridiculously pushy IAP system
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Code of Princess looks and sounds brill, but the shallow nature of its hack 'n' slash action lets it down greatly.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This entertaining retro RPG is perfect for those seeking a lighter take on old skool dungeon-crawling, but it's a little too repetitive and sluggish for its own good.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're looking for some meaningful storytelling in a video game, you will love Thomas Was Alone. If you're after a challenge, though, best to steer clear.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ark of Sinners Advance stumbles towards greatness. It's not the easiest game to pick up, but it is a difficult game to put down.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Robot Unicorn Attack didn't need a sequel, and it definitely didn't need grindy objectives, unlockable horns, and 69p songs. This sequel really chokes the life out of a chuckle-worthy joke.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dragon Fantasy Book I sticks incredibly close to its early Dragon Quest source material, warts and all.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    War of the Fallen is an entertaining card battler for people who like card battlers, but there's nothing new here for anyone who's sworn off the genre completely.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The House of the Dead: Overkill - The Lost Reels remains a decent virtual light gun game that translates pretty well to iPad, but its graphics haven't aged well and the IAP system is an unwelcome addition.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    After the first flush of excitement, Haunted Hollow doesn't manage to add anything to keep you interested.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's certainly a looker, but Paper Titans is a little too shallow once you get past its gorgeous facade.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A no-brainer if you're a fan of the series, but for anyone else it's really neither here nor there. If you like young girls with big guns and have a penchant for middle-of-the-road action-RPGs, this may well be for you.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Transformers Legends is a card-battler. You know how these play by now, so the only question is: do you want want that features Transformers?
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Briefly entertaining, Daddy Was A Thief doesn't have enough going for it to be a great.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it won't give Cut the Rope anything to worry about, Tasty Tadpoles is a solidly made and accessible casual puzzler that your children will probably enjoy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite a couple of interesting elements, Picdun 2: Witch's Curse is the very definition of an average dungeon-crawler.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fresh, fast-paced twist on the classic Tetris formula that'd be easier to recommend if it wasn't for its expensive IAP-centric design.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though a little stingy with the IAPs, Star Trek Rivals remains a fun diversion for fans of the sci-fi series or, rather bizarrely, Final Fantasy VIII.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Crash City Mayhem will make you pull a variety of faces, ranging from raised eyebrows, to indifference, to disappointment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    All the extra layers and shiny cartoon looks can't disguise the fact that Zombie Fish Tank is a small fish in a very big pond.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Frustrating in places and sometimes lacking in polish, World War Z is still an entertaining movie tie-in.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    After a few games, the veneer peels away and you realise that Starship Battles, while fun for a bit, doesn't have the depth to keep you interested.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The potential is there, but Bloody Vampire is just too rough to be fully appreciated.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Battlestone has polish to spare and is fun in small doses, but over time it becomes too much of a grind to maintain your interest.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This latest puzzler from veteran Alex Pajitnov looks like it was made in the '80s, but it provides a hefty challenge and it's free.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a lot to like here, and as long as you're not looking for anything new, Sparkle 2 is decent fun.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Full of undirected energy and enthusiasm, Despicable Me: Minion Rush is a hyperactive endless-runner that lacks poise and focus.
