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

    A well fleshed out and pretty darn entertaining arcade experience.

    A sedate and soothing puzzler, Lines the Game doesn't offer much of a challenge, but that's not really the point.

    Steins;Gate is a suitable introduction to the visual novel, but content-wise it's certainly not for everyone.

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

    Monster Dash is a spunky spin on the speedy platformer with a short shelf life.

    If you've got the patience for it, Hidden Folks is a puzzler perfect for those who have an eye and ear for detail.

    • 60 Critic Score
    A cool concept let down by clumsy controls and difficulty sharper than the teeth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

    Fun and familiar - Brothers in Arms 2 opts for variety over freshness and largely succeeds in spite of its many minor shortcomings.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not without its quirks, many of which are part and parcel of a ten-year old game, but the abundance of style and busy streets make Driver a continued success.

    A visually impressive point-and-click adventure, 1112 episode 3 continues the saga without offering too many answers. Despite all of its qualities, its high level of difficulty may limit the appeal.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not immediately a perfect fit, 6th Planet's fusion of Lunar Lander style play with its collection of comic strips proves to be a winning formula in the long run.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Robokill is an engrossing hybrid RPG-shooter that calls to mind classics of both genres, but it never reaches the same heights of either.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Spiky-haired hero seeks action RPG with flawed character development mechanics covered up by gorgeous graphics and comprehensive gameplay. Would prefer a Final Fantasy VII fan.

    A dull introduction and occasional unfair difficulty spikes aren't enough to run The War of Eustrath HD, particularly in light of its interesting battle mechanics.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Online battles and loads of loot save Chronicles of Inotia 2 from errand-like missions and lackadaisical spirit of adventure.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An endearing and often challenging platformer that sees its idea through.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The things that some people will find clever and immersive about Uplink, others are going to find strange and confusing, but if you fit into the first camp it's a blast of historical futuristic fun.

    A twisted mix of Tetris and colour matching, Art Style PiCOPiCT provides a complex but intelligent slice of bite-sized DSiWare gaming.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call is more of the same great puzzling gameplay, but it's definitely starting to lose its appeal.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, inventive slide 'n' slash action game that doesn't get everything right, but stays true to the way of the ninja with satisfying combat and beautiful visuals.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Cooked up using elements from the most noted games in the genre, Zombie Infection is a predictable, yet filling survival-horror action romp.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game that sparks occasionally but never manages to catch fire, Sky Force 2014 is a pretty average shooter in a world where that's not good enough.
    • 83 Metascore

    Walking Dead: Season Two - All That Remains isn't the barnstorming start that you may have been hoping for, but the story still has plenty of places to go.

    The price might be right, but Eliminate has a few wrongs that need correction: matchmaking issues, weapon imbalances, and a couple control quirks which shoot holes in the fun.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Well-presented and infuriatingly hard, Slice it! will delight those looking for a seriously challenging puzzler.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mixing quick thinking with fast fingers and a gothic setting, Helsing's Fire is a smart puzzler that's more about fun than challenge.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite its steep difficulty curve, Hook Worlds offers up a fun time waster that's worth its pocket money price.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Short but sweet, Scramble With Friends is a game designed exclusively for the socially-enabled wordplay fan. That said, Zynga With Friends has delivered an addictive puzzler for those willing to engage with friends and randoms alike.

    • 60 Critic Score
    A reasonably well put together Star Wars game, but it lacks the imagination to really recommend.
