    Wispin is a bright, original arcade experience that needs to expand its palette with additional modes and gameplay features.

    Ridge Racer 3D plays it safe by offering the same irresistible power-sliding gameplay we've come to know and love over the past few years, but the impressive 3D effect can't compensate entirely for the crude visuals and lack of online play.

    It's not the most original battler/RPG on mobile, but Sacred Legends does a wonderful job bringing the series to a small screen.

    Despite its slimey appearance, Fix the Leaks provides a solid experience.
    • 71 Metascore

    Instantly accessible and enjoyable in short bursts, F1 Challenge doesn't offer the complexity of its home console parent but will nevertheless please fans of the sport.

    Batman: Arkham City Lockdown adds its own spin to the Infinity Blade-styled action game and packs a meaty punch with its presentation, but it never quite takes flight.

    Rainmaker is a slick and entertaining puzzler. While it might not have the chops to hang around in your games folder too long, it's still worth a look.

    Fast, furious and typically fierce, MK: Unchained is an accomplished fighter made all the more interesting by the addition of unusual play modes.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interesting combination of mechanics makes for a compelling and highly enjoyable game but, if it’s available in your region, you’d be better off with the mobile original.

    It's not exactly the most exciting post-apocalyptic game out there, but if casual is your bag there's a lot to like here.

    Slow to play, but fun to tackle, this puzzle-platformer is sweetly entertaining.

    Call of Duty: Strike Team is one-part clumsy FPS, and one-part satisfying top-down strategy game. Spend most of your time with the latter and you'll be guaranteed a pretty good time.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid blast from the RPG-ing past, Ys Chronicles 2 isn't a bonafide classic, but it's still well worth a look.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Training up your sensei alongside your regular troops is an interesting mechanic that helps Sensei Wars stand out a little from the rest of the Clash of Clans clones.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A challenging, gorgeously presented take on the Angry Birds formula that proves satisfyingly cerebral, even if repetition does eventually set in.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bursting with pixel charm and offering up a vast, detailed world to explore, Frogatto boasts all the hallmarks of a truly classic 2D platform adventure without the spot-on controls.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fairly uniform in nature but no less engaging for it, N.Y.Zombies is a nice living-dead shooting gallery that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A twisted mix of Tetris and colour matching, Art Style PiCOPiCT provides a complex but intelligent slice of bite-sized DSiWare gaming.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ookibloks is a bright and fresh little puzzler. There's an awful lot to like about its mixture of cuteness and logic.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Modern Combat 3 is the best attempt at recreating Call of Duty on mobiles so far, but it still has a long way to go when it comes to the finer points of the FPS genre.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cool, responsive and remarkably stressful arcade tapping game that only really has one nerve-shredding trick - but it plays it well.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Muramasa Rebirth is gorgeous, action packed, and regularly delightful, but its charm cannot entirely compensate for its repetitive nature.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly flappy bang bang nonsense of a shooty game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Buccaneer Blitz provides fun, action-packed strategy gameplay, but never truly manages to raise its sail before it arrives in harbour.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gravity Hook HD has a uniquely punishing brand of gameplay that slaps you away with its difficulty, but reels you back in with a fine presentation and excellent unlockable mode.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A little more polished than your average button masher, Wraithborne will appeal to some, but it's a little too generic to really set the world aflame.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's pouty, it's pink, it's pretty darn good - Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique is the game to get your non-gamer sister / daughter / niece this Christmas, and they'll never know you've snuck them a shockingly hardcore management game with excellent production values.

    A busier game than Tiny Tower, it's unfortunately a little worse off for it. An action packed and good-looking tower builder, this will delight freemium fans that want a little more to do out of every play session.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Any Landing's fly-by-the-seat-of-its-pants gameplay is both fun and challenging, but structurally it's a bit of a mess.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Released into a genre that is perilously close to saturation point, Towers N' Trolls doesn't bring anything new to the table but still promises tower defence fans an enjoyable ride.
