    Poor handling and missing features make Race After 1977 feel too much like the dingy vehicles that roll across its post-apocalyptic landscape.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While some good things come in small packages, the limitations of this beginner's tower defence title means that The Great Prank War is more The 'Meh' Prank War to all but die-hard Regular Show fans.

    Light Apprentice is a promising start to what may turn out to be a decent series, but its short length and simplicity can't be overlooked.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Great looking and supremely smooth, but its core gameplay is overshadowed by its own style. As endearing as the game is in many ways, it's just not a massively entertaining concept.

    It isn't an ancient Chinese secret how Kung Fu Panda spices up side-scrolling action with great graphics and interesting touch-based combat moves. Controls are frequently cumbersome, but the originality of it all makes it worth the trouble.

    Thanks to its striking visuals and intense action Zombie Shock is instantly appealing, but the gameplay is dragged down by repetition and occasionally awkward controls.
    • 76 Metascore

    There's a lot to like here, and as long as you're not looking for anything new, Sparkle 2 is decent fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sugar Rush has a couple of ideas that differentiate it from the likes of Candy Crush Saga, but these aren't enough to make the game special.
    • 73 Metascore

    A look back at the early days of the JRPG. Dragon Quest I is solid, but we've come a long way since it was first released and it's starting to show.

    Tap Army is a reasonably entertaining arcade survival game, but it runs out of tricks pretty fast.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a solid game here, but Drop Wizard doesn't manage to turn its good ideas and great presentation into a must-buy.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    World Conqueror 1945 plays like a brainstorming session of new ideas for Risk where every single one was kept in; it doesn't quite hang together as a result.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A point-and-click detective adventure which is a touch too linear and not particularly daring with its plot or characters. That said, murder mystery fans will enjoy the gradual whittling down of suspects through evidence gathering and problem solving.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Destructopus may be the environmentalists' answer to the Rampage series, but problematic controls limit its enjoyability.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A very simple slots game riddled with ads, Area 777 is easy on the eye, and even easier on the brain. While it won't convince naysayers, genre fans might want to give it a spin.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ultimately too plain for its own good, Burn it All – Journey to the Sun's rope burning puzzler is engaging in short bursts, but the attraction of its challenge melts away with repeated play.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Generic but accessible, Kingturn RPG Plus won't make you care about your characters but it might scratch your SRPG itch.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Cute Heroes is a great looking, but ultimately shallow war of attrition, where only the strongest can compete effectively.

    Combining a colourful cartoon world with the pinball table, Flipper Critters provides an interesting – if unspectacular – mixture of gameplay.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A clever take on the bowling genre, Undead Bowling is entertaining for a while, but soon succumbs to repetition.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You've played games very similar to Star Trek Trexels, but if you're a Star Trek fan, that probably shouldn't put you off too much.
    • 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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dark Incursion is a promising game with smart combat and a wonderful style, but control issues, a small map, and a short playtime just make it feel incomplete.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Zombie Wonderland has all the ingredients for a novel take on the zombie shooter, but repetitive gameplay and restricted movement mean the recipe isn't quite right.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it isn't the worst example of a strategy title on the App Store, The Bluecoats - North vs South is a little too muddled to really recommend.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A pretty and original but bafflingly constructed oddball platformer with a control system that never feels quite right.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An interesting concept that sows plenty of ambitions, We Rule falls short of harvesting compelling gameplay.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A good-looking and accessible dungeon-crawler, Orc: Vengeance falls down with restrictive levels and woeful controls.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Boulder Jack is a decent enough runner, but it can be something of a grind.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Hailed as a solid-gold classic back in 1994, Little Big Adventure hasn't quite stood the test of time, and this port is hamstrung by ropey controls.
