    There's still plenty of room for improvement with patches and bug fixes, but NBA 2K14 shows signs of improvement.

    FlipShip isn't the most original shooter, but genre fans will enjoy the ride.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun match-three RPG hybrid that hits all the right notes, even if they are familiar ones.

    Popstar Physics: Save Toshi 2 isn't pretty, but it sure is addictive.
    • tbd Metascore

    Pace and repetition issues aside, Oh...Sir! is a wonderfully witty and strangely strategic game that will tax your mind and make you smile.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A relentlessly stylish sensory assault that's so in tune with its underlying mechanics that it works, despite the game's obvious flaws.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A typically polished footy game with a surprisingly generous freemium model. But EA needs to improve the way it plays touchscreen football if it's to keep the paying punters happy for FIFA 15.

    You've trodden on this battlefield before, but Puzzle Trooper is undeniably fun.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Temperamental controls and B-grade visuals aside, this is a lovely little downloadable racer with a surprisingly compulsive time trial format.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Freeze is a simple and rather drab-looking game, but its tactile physics-based gameplay and imaginative level design lifts it above the humdrum.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Robot Gladi8tor cleverly expands on the Infinity Blade blueprint with FPS freedom and stunning presentation, but it's not quite as polished as Chair Entertainment's offerings.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A little more Candy Crush then classic Bejeweled, but still as addictive and shiny as ever.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining hack and slash defence title, Samurai vs Zombies Defense could do with a bit more hacking and slashing, but it's still worth a try if Japanese violence is your bag.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sweet-natured and appealing puzzler with a smattering of rhythm action. Entertaining but brief and a bit lacking in depth.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy sequel to a much-loved original, but one that suffers from structural changes introduced to accommodate IAP.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another endless-runner that does everything perfectly well, Amazing Runner doesn't quite live up to its title, but it's entertaining all the same.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ignore the fact that this is attached to a licence, and look past the few faults it currently has, and you'll find that DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot is an excellent team-based multiplayer shooter, with solid controls and great visuals.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Happy Hills 2: Bombs Away! is slower-paced and more frustrating than many other physics puzzlers, but its addictive qualities can’t be denied.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This sequel may go beyond the portals, but does little to go beyond its predecessor. A decent game, even if it's only marginally better than the first.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Angry Birds HD adds a new sheen to the excellent original title, yet offers no new content, features, or substantive enhancements.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An acute mix of intense twin-stick shooter action and dazzling visuals hampered by awkward controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Alphabeats has an interesting rhythm, and it's fun while it lasts, but it can't quite catapult itself to the upper echelons of App Store gaming.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Little Inferno is a smart and subversive work of art that pokes fun at freemium games. But its dedication to the joke often hurts the fun little physics toy at the core.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly expansive platformer that combines Game Boy visuals with open level design to decent effect.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While arguably an acquired taste, the awe-inspiring animated action boasted by Dragon's Lair is sure to charm you.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Excellent for younger gamers, Bionicle Heroes is a well-designed and enjoyable shooter, although more experienced players might consider it lacking in challenges.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Secret Files Tunguska is an enjoyable adventure with some good puzzles and lots of locations. It's just not imaginative or exciting enough for a full recommendation.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ignore the dull plot and iffy visuals, and you'll find a straightforward RPG that revels in its simple but satisfying battle mechanics.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Plenty of content and an intriguing take on online play just about make up for Amp, Watts & Circuit's occasionally sloppy AI.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Race Team Manager is a surprisingly cool 'hands-off but still partially on' racing management sim, even despite its moments of frustration.
