    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slightly scattered action game with an interesting strategic sideline, Bug Heroes 2 gets a little lost in itself sometimes, but it's still worth a crack.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A shallow and fun arcade action game with plenty of attitude to fill in the gaps.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engaging first episode that snaps along at a decent pace. Tales from the Borderlands might not have the emotional heft of Telltale's other games, but it's got enough charm and cheek to see it through.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sensory overload awaits in DoDonPachi Resurrection, a well-to-do arcade port with good controls and variety in spite of its intimidating style.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's lost some edge and coherence in transit, but Snuggle Truck's lighter tone is arguably a better fit for its blend of knockabout physics-based fun.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A quick and entertaining arcade blast, Magicka isn't perfect, but it'll make you smile all the same.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less strategic than it wants to be, but this is a fun and hugely likeable time-waster for iPad owners.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An admirable attempt to do something different and clever on iOS, dragged down by a few too many levels that require tedious slogging.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    War Pinball looks and sounds fantastic, but there's still room for improvement when it comes to table design.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple and entertaining enough casual roguelike, Land Sliders doesn't have much meat on its bones, but that's fine.
    • 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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What Angry Birds Rio lacks in new ideas and freshness, it makes up in quality gameplay and good value.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Stickets is a quietly accomplished and fresh puzzler, though its somewhat narrow focus limits its long-term appeal.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While its scale is to be applauded, Warpgate HD doesn't deliver gameplay of high enough quality to make interstellar trade and travel fun.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Eliss gets everything right, except for the difficulty curve. If it's an extreme challenge with charm and polish you are after, look no further.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A movie tie-in that actually does some justice to its fun source material, this match-three puzzler is a retro delight.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A retro arcade fizzer with a twist, Particle Mace isn't perfect, but it's worth a look all the same.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While its ambitious scale is admirable, Aralon: Sword and Shadow possesses a myriad of flaws that yield clunky, unrefined gameplay.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A great little strategy title that lets you test your mettle against players from around the globe and friends alike, Outwitters is entertaining and deep enough to have you coming back for more.

    • 70 Critic Score
    What Angry Birds Rio lacks in new ideas and freshness, it makes up in quality gameplay and good value.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A polished and well presented game, Super Stickman Golf 2 doesn't always get its angles right, but when it does it's an awful lot of fun.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A refined take on the original, Beyond Ynth brings extra knobs and bobs that take the existing formula and make it trickier, but this isn't a true step forward.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Baseball Superstars 2011 makes enough improvements on its predecessor to become the definitive version, but it doesn't offer anything substantially new.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    NBA Jam is one slammin', jammin' ball game, but where's the multiplayer?
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Wispin is a bright, original arcade experience that needs to expand its palette with additional modes and gameplay features.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tough, frustrating, and a little too twitchy, Super Hexagon is nonetheless a skilfully constructed and compelling game / instrument of torture.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As old skool as they come, League of Evil delivers an action-packed platformer perfect for quick thrills.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun and diverting puzzler, Puzzlejuice offers a new style of play, but doesn't quite have the chops to back up its brain-punching claims.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A mesmerising, creepy, unique, and frustrating puzzle platformer.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Aside from its online gameplay, Planet Puzzle League has little new to offer over more engaging rivals.
