    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Codename Cygnus certainly represents an interesting new way of playing, but its creator doesn't quite manage to iron out the kinks in this novelty experience.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A mediocre platformer made for a good cause, Nightmare: Malaria starts out challengingly but quickly becomes frustrating on account of the maddeningly clumsy controls.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Killing evil robots with a snowboard has never felt so routine. Krashlander's physics puzzling is challenging, but it needs work in other areas.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite being reasonably lengthy, DeckMake Fantasy's shallow story, repetitive battles and translation issues mean that it's difficult to recommend to those who aren't fond of the genre.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's repetitive, bland to look at, and the fighting's a bit rubbish, but the allure of grinding levels over and over to unlock skills just about remains appealing to warrant a look for a select few.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dragon Finga has a great concept, but it's so shallow and miserly that it ends up as little more than a drag.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The closest most of us will ever come to the sport in real life, Ski Jumping Pro delivers exactly what it sets out to and nothing more.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Pilot Academy offers moments of great enjoyment that are unavoidably affected by both the game and the PSP's shortcomings.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-designed, entertaining take on an excessively familiar formula that's simply too predictable to truly dazzle.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney retains the wit and charm of the original release without much needed tailoring of the controls and interface to fit iPhone and iPod touch.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Picross e is definitely Picross, no doubt about that, but it doesn't really do anything we haven't already played numerous times before.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you’re a sucker for cheap puns this simple adventure game is great fun, although the replay value is fairly limited.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Underpowered in terms of excitement, but the ride you'll get from this solid, comprehensive package is never less than decent.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're completely new to word games on mobiles then you're in for a treat. Otherwise this is a fun, functional, but forgettable word game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Metal Gear Acid 2 is certainly big and complex, but unfortunately it's not particularly clever.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A weird almost-adventure that's missing the wit and energy of its movie namesakes but almost makes up for it with a likeable enthusiasm of its own.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A stealth-action game that isn't lacking in bright ideas, Riddick: The Merc Files clouds its best bits with a generally clunky, unfinished feel.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Cell Bound has the nucleus of a great puzzler, but the rush to introduce new ingredients contaminates this interesting experiment.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent but ridiculously overpriced JRPG with too many old ideas and not enough substance or excitement.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Final Fantasy II earns praise for its remastered visuals and updated gameplay, though it remains as off-putting as its original release.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a unique take on a fast, twitchy, mobile arcade game but Miner Man isn't particularly deep.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It has its moments, but Super Heavy Sword is still a little too clunky and cumbersome for its own good.
