    Sound Shapes is a short, unremarkable platformer that's transformed into something quite special when mixed with the sights and sounds of its killer line-up of artists.

    Three Fourths Home is practically over before it begins, but the themes, characterisation and narrative direction will haunt you for a long time afterwards.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rich and compelling distillation of MOBA for mobiles, but presents a very steep and jagged face to new players.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A competent, though not a convincing enough re-release without online multiplayer and a wider slate of control options to bring a new generation into the flock of Doom faithful.

    Zenonia 2 is a fun, yet far too faithful sequel that offers only cursory changes and not the substantive improvements necessary for it to be a great follow up.

    Grim Fandango Remastered fixes a lot of the flaws of the epic original, but reminds us why we never actually completed it in 1998.

    A blend of arcade pace and tactical nuance makes Linkoidz an innovative match-three puzzler, which is notable in and of itself.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Gem Keeper's wonderful presentation and rock-solid fundamentals are undermined by a difficulty level that veers all over the place, but this is still a polished and enjoyable tower defence experience.

    Mutant Mudds remains a fun yet frustrating experience on iOS, with its quirky plane-switching mechanic going some way to making up for its frustratingly exacting 2D platform gameplay.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat pushing together of ideas that pretty much comes off. Puzzle to the Center of the Earth definitely has its moments.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever and tactical game that just lacks the extra features to truly ascend to the top of the deck.

    Robot Unicorn Attack didn't need a sequel, and it definitely didn't need grindy objectives, unlockable horns, and 69p songs. This sequel really chokes the life out of a chuckle-worthy joke.

    Legends of the Titan is the perfect definition of niche RPG gaming, catering for the hardcore but leaving more casual players in the lurch.

    Patient players might enjoy this cute action-puzzler, but control and design issues will leave others burning with rage.

    A finely polished casual puzzler, Geared 2 makes incremental improvements over the original with a new level editor and a more appealing visual style.

    Perfect for Phineas and Ferb fans and Where's My Water? obsessives who crave new levels - but casual Swampy fans will find plenty to do in the original.

    An attractive and highly entertaining shooter, AirAttack is nonetheless liable to be shot down thanks to a lack of manoeuvrability.

    An engaging platformer that misses a few steps, Leo's Fortune is still well worth a look.

    Like Sudoku with pretty pictures, Paint it Back turns logic puzzles into works of art.

    Kosmo Spin looks a treat and features a neat universe-spinning concept, unfortunately it can't back these up with sufficiently compelling gameplay.

    Despite some resolution issues, realMyst is a solid remake of a remake, improving slightly on a game that was itself a slight improvement on a game.

    Bucketz is a hyperactive game full to the brim of bright ideas, but its attempts at variation and humour can be a little overwhelming.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable little title perfect for scratching your mobile arcade gaming itch.

    A solid and entertaining platformer, Type:Rider has a few niggling problems, but it's still worth a look.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A well fleshed out and pretty darn entertaining arcade experience.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sedate and soothing puzzler, Lines the Game doesn't offer much of a challenge, but that's not really the point.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Steins;Gate is a suitable introduction to the visual novel, but content-wise it's certainly not for everyone.
    • 83 Metascore

    With a great setting, storyline and characters, it's a shame Hector: Badge of Carnage Ep1 falls down due to overly complicated, frustrating puzzles.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Monster Dash is a spunky spin on the speedy platformer with a short shelf life.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A cool concept let down by clumsy controls and difficulty sharper than the teeth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
