    Despite not offering anything revolutionary and lacking multiplayer, Speed Forge Extreme manages to do something even more impressive: feel entirely at home on iPhone.

    No-frills action makes Warriors Orochi a decent portable experience, especially with co-op multiplayer and the promise of hours and hours of enjoyable - if similar - gameplay.

    While the lack of official licensing continues to dent the mainstream appeal of Gameloft's soccer series, this is a solid update and the intelligent inclusion of touchscreen control is genuinely engaging.

    'In Harm's Way' is something of a come down after the magnificent 'A House Divided', but if you've followed the story thus far you're almost certainly going to play it anyway and your disappointment will be mild at worst.

    Star Wars: Galactic Defense is a vanilla tower defence game that just so happens to include characters and vehicles from a cherished franchise.

    Want a harder version of Clash of Clans? With super-quick load times and clever social elements? Battle Command! is for you, then.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Serialised horror stories and serious fitness come together in a way that few would think possible in this oddball fitness app.

    Boulder Dash-XL 3D iterates wonderfully on the 80s original, but refuses to ever ramp the excitement levels up to the max.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fastar! is a clever distillation of the role-playing form, even if it lacks the variety or dynamism of other quick-hit adventures.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sublime mixture of stunning visuals, deep combat and unique plot make it easier to forgive Wild Frontier for the occasionally samey nature of the quests and the existence of exploitative in-app purchases.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun, simple, and possibly a little bit throwaway, however, CiRCA6's basic charms mean it's always good for a quick blast.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Tales 5 might not have the strongest puzzles, but it manages to close the story with humour and drama. It means this entire series will go down in Monkey Island history, performance issues aside.

    Pocket RPG isn't a sophisticated role-playing game, but if you want to sink time into a good-looking dungeon crawler, then strap on your armour.

    • 70 Critic Score
    This pint-sized racer is so playable and packed with fan-service that Sega fans will want to hop on board as soon as possible - but it doesn't quite match Mario Kart when it comes to raw enjoyment and multiplayer brilliance.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A slick port of a proven formula. Michael Jackson fans, of which there are many, will find much to enjoy.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Rote but decent mini-games are married to impeccable presentation and an adorable lead to create something quite special.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, engaging matching puzzler that isn't quite as complex or smart as it first seems.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Prime World: Defenders is tower defence-meets-card collecting. And while there's plenty of meat on the bones, some irksome issues take the shine off things slightly.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Supermarket Mania is a little tedious at first, but casual players will enjoy the fast-paced action on offer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Blast Ball's joyously kinetic gameplay and simple premise make it instantly gratifying, but the occasionally annoying controls and lack of depth count against it.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly game full of repetitive combat and simple missions, Assassin's Creed Pirates somehow still manages to be fun.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interestingly built mix of puzzling and platforming, Deadlings is intriguing enough to keep you entertained for a good while.
    • 64 Metascore

    In many ways a lightweight exploration game, nevertheless Tiny Lights' demonstrates a certain charm that's a joy to play.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Primitives is an admirably unique and challenging puzzle game, though some control issues keep it from greatness.
    • 68 Metascore

    Gorgeous visuals and a fun Fruit Ninja mini-game help liven up this city-builder.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it might not be the most innovative or original game in the world, King Oddball is still an awful lot of fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Absorption has some nice ideas, and aside from a few niggles, it's well worth a look.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Dementium: The Ward comes in a pretty wrapper, offering an entertaining first-person adventure light on fright. Not the best candy in the basket, then, but it's certainly still worth a bite.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Magnetized isn't quite up there with the best of its challenging ultra-modern kind, but it's a worthwhile and novel casual game nonetheless.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It takes some getting used to, but stick with this and you'll find a platformer of real quality.
