    It may be an update of an existing game, but Switch Galaxy is playable, good looking, and extremely challenging.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Smash the Office isn't a particularly deep game, and it comes with relatively few features, but what little it does it does well.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A mediocre game is made infinitely worse by locking away content that's only accessible after umpteen repeats of the same content, or consuming loads of ads.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Alien Hive has the foundations of an excellent match-three puzzler, but it spoils the mood with restrictive gameplay systems and an over-reliance on IAPs.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A deep, considered, and emotive game, Trauma won't be for everyone. Those who find it, however, will likely fall in love with it.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    First off, The Croods is extremely slow to get going. Secondly, though Rovio has added a little bit of thought here, it's not sufficient to elevate The Croods above the overcrowded freemium building masses.

    A strange, entertaining, but brief arcade racer, WRC Shakedown will keep you entertained, just not for as long as you might expect.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Sly's return to mainstream platforming action is a welcome one. It's a wise-cracking charm-offensive specifically designed to juxtapose the words 'madcap' and 'romp' in the same sentence.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Final Fantasy V might not represent the high point of the series, but Square Enix's sympathetic graphical overhaul and that ever-engrossing job system mean that it feels surprisingly fresh in 2013.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A concise and enjoyable action RPG-lite with an irritating - but not deal-breaking - IAP system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Offering up genuinely unique gameplay, Carnage Heart EXA does what it sets out to do well. But because of that the rest of the game suffers - meaning most battles are slow and somewhat uninteresting affairs.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rich and vibrant platformer with one or two control and balance issues that prevent it from joining the list of the best console conversions on iOS.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dull and repetitive, MAYDAY! takes all the fun out of what should be an exciting scenario.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun and low-investment, Fearless Wheels is a great dirt bike racer to keep around for idle moments.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A quick and entertaining arcade blast, Magicka isn't perfect, but it'll make you smile all the same.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Runaway: A Twist of Fate is a typical Pendulo experience - shoddy puzzle design and cringeworthy comedy - wrapped up in a bloated, bug-ridden app.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It doesn't have the same laid-back attitude as its stablemates, but Nimble Quest is all the more entertaining for that.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A generous package of casual online multiplayer games that, while not particularly distinguished in any single area, contains a generous spirit and a compelling risk-reward system.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solitaire Blitz is vintage PopCap, with peerlessly addictive gameplay and quietly impressive presentation. Unfortunately, the freemium payment model will be a barrier for many.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cling! controls like a dream and looks wonderful, but the steep learning curve means that it's for dedicated players only.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Germinator is rather sketchy in its execution, but offers fairly solid Bust-a-Move gameplay.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Alien Breed is a bit of a dinosaur now, but its new coat of paint definitely helps to give it a new lease of life.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It won't be to everyone's liking, but Master of Alchemy Vengeance Front is an engaging, tough little puzzler all the same.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A half-decent RTS that only partially embraces the strengths of its source material and suffers from irritating performance and control issues.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Perhaps a little more style over substance, Raft Pirates is a building, battling and boating game with a big chunk of style.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Mario could learn a trick or two from his brother, as Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon stakes its claim as one of the most essential titles available for Nintendo 3DS.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Snoopy Coaster has the same thrills as last year's Madcoaster, but also the same game design, objectives, menus, sound effects, in-app purchases, shop items, and power-ups.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Novel gameplay quickly gets lost in the mix of pop culture pandering and painful load times.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite showcasing a slightly annoying IAP mechanic which often prevents prolonged play, Dr. Jolt offers some seriously entertaining puzzle action.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the Unmechanical controls can be infuriating sometimes, the game is still a hugely entertaining and engaging adventure.
