    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.

    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.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ultimately pointless if you don't own Pokemon Black and White 2, Pokemon Dream Radar is, however, an absolute must-buy for Pokefans.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Initial impressions of Smart As are good, but the game rapidly shows itself to be a brain training title lacking any in-depth planning.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun in small doses, Nutty Fluffies is a little too repetitive and shallow to offset the slightly cynical in-app purchase system at its core.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Square Planet looks the part, and it has plenty of good ideas, but a less-than-perfect physics engine lets it down.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're willing to slog your way through the most tedious and drawn-out start to a game ever, you'll finally discover that Harvest Moon magic hidden underneath.

    With a few tweaks, Gear Jack could be a wonderful game. As it is, it's nearly crushed under a pile of frustrations.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Real Boxing looks and plays nicely, but flawed countering and training systems unbalance a promising beat-'em-up.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Gorgeous to look at but ultimately frustrating to play, Shadowgun: DeadZone needs a lot of work before it becomes the finished article.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's definitely promise here, but Motley Blocks stumbles at the last hurdle.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A simplistic, reasonably captivating blend of turn-based exploration and real-time combat that's disappointingly hollow without additional investment.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Deeply silly and full of gimmicky distractions, The Bowling Dead simply isn't fun enough to match its outrageously daft concept.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is a fun little time-waster in between real Uncharted releases, but it's one that's riddled with issues.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A challenging, surprisingly imaginative match-3 puzzler - but there's little reason to tolerate its free-to-play fussiness with so much stellar competition in the field.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A delightfully jovial game, let down by miserly levels of reward. If you're a fan of the cartoon, then definitely take a look.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The iPhone finally gets its own Wipeout, but the puzzling absence of pure racing excitement makes this a tricky one to recommend.
    • 72 Metascore

    There's fun to be had here, but Hollywood Monsters has you reaching for the hint button too often to be considered a classic.
