    A dull shooter wrapped in an angry freemium model, Gunner Z is enjoyable for a while, but it soon fades.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While it starts off brightly, Ring Run Circus quickly loses its sheen and descends into mediocrity.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    With Nascar: Redline, Eutechnyx reduces high-octane wheel-to-wheel motorsport to a rather uninspiring series of mini-game events sprinkled rather sparsely over a dull race management simulation.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An interesting idea that falls a little flat, Mega Dead Pixel doesn't have enough going for it to really recommend.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Pocket God: Ooga Jump is a reasonably competent take on Doodle Jump, but flat gameplay and a remarkably stingy currency system limit its already modest potential.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    As lunk-headed and clumsy as a drunken Viking, Thor takes a hammer to the action-RPG genre with its clunky controls and cynical IAP system.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Add this to the increasingly large pile of iOS games marked 'sort of like Pokemon, but not nearly as good'. Aside from the stupendously good soundtrack, there's little to get excited about here.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It has its moments, but Space Hulk stumbles too often to really recommend.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A bland and unremarkable game, Clash of Puppets isn't broken, but it's far from memorable all the same.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A befuddling game whose creator attempts to mask its incoherent world and sloppy game design with suggestions of intrigue and profundity.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A hollow experience that could be so much better, Angry Birds Go! never feels fair or fun.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A wonderful game that's battered into submission by an overbearing payment scheme, Fightback has the moves, but it uses them all wrongly.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Ambitious and full of promise, but essentially dull.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A run-of-the-mill endless-runner with a flimsy Avengers skin layered on top, whatever Marvel Run Jump Smash’s super power is, it’s not ambition.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A lightweight, odd action game that never makes you feel part of the fun, Bloodstroke is too muddled to really recommend.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A dull mash-up of licences that never fires into life, Lego Star Wars: Microfighters just doesn't have enough fight in it.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A convoluted selection of puzzle mini-games with lots of surface variety, but not a lot of substance beneath
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Demonrock: War of Ages is a decent casual strategy game that lacks the necessary tactical variation and overall polish to keep you returning to the battlefield.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Devious Dungeon is a woefully simple RPG-platformer that quickly becomes about nothing more than grinding for money and levels.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It wastes a good concept, and Knock-Knock is a bizarre and bewildering experience that will happily alienate all but those most dedicated to experimental games.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The potential for something brilliant's there. But annoyances and balancing issues prevent Cube Tactics from being anything other than a disappointment.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Roll Back Home has a daring and arresting visual style. Boring and irritating gameplay, however, means this is the worst waste of paper since the Daily Mail.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a predictably uninspired action RPG with too little strategic scope and a half-hearted multiplayer element tacked on.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Unwieldy and unfocused, there's a good game struggling to emerge from the core of Ethan: Meteor Hunter, but it never quite manages to do so.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A disappointingly limited lane-defence game that offers little of the strategic depth fans of the source material would be hoping for, and nothing outstandingly fresh for the rest.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Full of edgy humour, but the designers forgot to add an actual game.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    MLB 14 looks great and has a host of cool features, but strikes out when it comes to gameplay.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    FarmVille 2: Country Escape is a true time waster. Despite plenty of content that could last weeks, it boils down to watching progress bars fill up.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Despite solid controls and presentation, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 lacks any sort of heart and soul, and its repetitive missions lend this open-world adventure a pervading sense of dullness and drudgery.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A port that exposes too many of the fragilities of the original, Drawn to Life is spread a little too thin to recommend.
