    Lili is a gorgeous game with lots of personality and bundles of charm. But as a game it's rather insubstantial and struggles to hold your attention for long.

    A little easier than earlier entries, Hector: Ep3 offers up carnage and badges aplenty for fans of the series.

    A sensory overload awaits in DoDonPachi Resurrection, a well-to-do arcade port with good controls and variety in spite of its intimidating style.

    A charming adventure packed with memorable characters, scenarios, and gameplay, Secret of Mana remains enjoyable in spite of control issues and minor audio quirks.

    Despite the light-hearted script and colourful visuals, chronoSgear is a riveting and mentally challenging proposition that skilfully melds two genres into a cohesive and enjoyable experience.

    A fun action-adventure with good production values, Elemental Rage lacks the polish that defines a truly great game.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though limited by its mystifying lack of multiplayer and the shelf life of its pop references, You Don't Know Jack is a fun quiz game.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Limited character customisation dulls Ravensword: The Fallen King, a trade between accessibility and depth preventing this enjoyable adventure from being truly epic.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent twist on the connect-four genre, with a pricing scheme that's almost guaranteed to put off all but the most committed devotees.

    This second stab at Blokus for iOS is very similar to the first, providing a neat strategy boardgame with few frills and no bonus features.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-presented shot of retro-blasting chaos, with just enough twists to keep you entertained.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A functional, colourful space shooter slightly soured by the decision to implement in-app purchases.

    An impressive puzzler from Sheffield students, BounceBack just needed some visual attention to reach the loftiest heights.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A chunky and unrepentant frustration-fest, Super Splatform requires patience and dexterity, but it's just about worth the effort.
    • 78 Metascore

    Big Bang Mini is beautifully presented and innovative in terms of its design and gameplay but the further you progress through the 90 stages, the more the flourishes get in the way.

    While it's possible to just dive in with the traditional play mechanic of score-as-many-goals-as-you-can-in-90-minutes, the game's central dynamic demands a little more effort from those looking for victory.

    Splash is a novel take on the casual physics-puzzler muddied slightly by fiddly controls.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A twisted and engaging puzzler with a few frustrating sections, Incredipede is - on balance - still worth your time.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great fun with plenty of explosions, rock music, and pageantry. It goes over the top in all the right ways.

    A nice trip down memory lane, Kaptain Brawe: Brawe New World doesn't bring any of its own ideas to the party, but it's an enjoyable diversion all the same.

    Small Fry combines frantic swimming with fishy flight to create a tasty action experience.

    Doodle Train will have your thinking cap permanently affixed to your head, but extra modes do not disguise the fact that it could have benefited from more content.

    iOOTP Baseball 2012 Edition is able to deliver the thrill of the game through mere text, though fans of the series might wonder why play hasn't been pushed on a touch.

    • 70 Critic Score
    While it was always going to get squashed under the weight of post-Angry Birds expectation, Amazing Alex does a decent job. It might not be Rovio's finest work, but it shows there's life in the company outside of pigs and disgruntled birds.

    It may not be the work of the original Blur team, but Overdrive captures enough of the magic of its predecessor to make it a worthwhile download - although be prepared to dig into your pockets to purchase in-game currency.

    A refined take on the original, Beyond Ynth brings extra knobs and bobs that take the existing formula and make it trickier, but this isn't a true step forward.

    • 70 Critic Score
    You have to dig through a layer of questionable controls, but at the core of Miner Disturbance lies an ingenious adventure-puzzler.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tied down by its rigid adherence to the endless-running formula, TheEndApp isn't a bad example of the genre, but it's one you've played before.

    Monster House is a surprisingly difficult game, but there's plenty of innovation and fun for those prepared to work at it.
