    While it's entertaining in small bursts, Suspect in Sight! stubbornly refuses to let go of its extra content, leaving you trapping the same criminals for far too long.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Sims gets a survival game. A neat package of exploration and item-finding, but one that does get a bit tedious for all but the keenest of collectors.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Effectively a fancy way of playing rock-paper-scissors online, The Witcher: Versus possesses some interesting supporting features that do much to hide this fact, but not enough to hold your attention for long.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Battlestone has polish to spare and is fun in small doses, but over time it becomes too much of a grind to maintain your interest.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Monsters Rising is eccentric, repetitive, attractive, and fussy - often all at once. It's interesting and often enjoyable, but flawed.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you know your Stan Lee from your Stanley Carter, there's a lot to like in the collection of these beautiful cards, and the math grinding will appeal to the Excel-obsessed. But those looking for an accessible battler will be best served elsewhere.

    Yak Dash certainly looks the part, but when you get down to it it's a little too frustrating to wholeheartedly recommend.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sloppy and slack, Soccer Superstars 2011 Pro shows much promise, but – like its predecessor – puts far too much focus on special moves and has spent far too little time tightening up the matches themselves.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-put-together endless-runner, Miner Problem is as generic as they come.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A reasonably well put together blaster with a cold heart, Star Troll is reasonably rewarding if you're willing to put in some work.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it doesn't quite measure up to the best of the virtual pet breed, Shrek: Ogres and Dronkeys is an almost satisfying game that younger Shrek fans will enjoy.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Telltale has produced an uneven chapter in 'The Lord Lords' as it struggles to convey a rich and complex tale.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon is a good-looking and solid game, but it doesn't do as well in gameplay terms as it does in aesthetic ones.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Customisable controls prevent this reloaded version of N.O.V.A. HD from shooting blanks but it could have been so much more.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An atmospheric and good-looking twin-stick shooter that's saddled with crushingly linear downtime, a rubbish plot, and control issues.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun, but ultimately monotonous one trick pony, Braveheart is best suited to short bursts where its repetitive nature can be sufficiently tolerated.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A little too complex to get into its stride, FishMoto nevertheless looks wondrous in motion, if you can stand to stick to its strict rule set.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A cheap and cheerful shooter, Touch the Dead isn't revolutionary, but it's a relatively well put together game that will satisfy your lust for zombie zapping.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Lego The Lord of the Rings for iOS costs a fraction of its home console counterpart, and it's a fraction of the game, but it's a decent single-player introduction to the Lego franchise.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a solid idea at the heart of Spoiler Alert, but it never quite manages to turn it into a stellar game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Flashout 2S is a little lifeless, but it's good for a freebie. If you like it, get the premium version for a more balanced experience.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    SpyCorp looks and plays like a tweenie version of Metal Gear Solid, with vibrant production design and some brilliant gags. But the in-app purchase model is flawed and this detracts from the experience.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Deeply silly and full of gimmicky distractions, The Bowling Dead simply isn't fun enough to match its outrageously daft concept.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Narborion Saga is a decent digital adventure book with some questionable grammar and weird monetisation processes.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If only a little more budget was invested in the development of Breakout Boost, it'd play more like an arcade titan and less like a nostalgic cash-in.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Gauntlet's Revenge makes a valiant effort to bring the Tilt to Live controls to a new genre, but they're just too imprecise to really work.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A buggy puzzler conversion, which doesn't live up to the majesty of the Rubik family crest.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Super light strategy leads to super accessibility but also super shallow gameplay.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Crooked House is a competent enough puzzler, but overly simplistic gameplay and unsatisfying controls keep it from making much of an impression.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Taking too much inspiration from other – much better – games, Infinite Dreams' shooter never rises to the quality of the titles it wishes it was, instead providing a bland but competent shmup.
