    There's not quite enough new material to give it a full recommendation, but the original formula is still great. If you want more zombie slaying, look no further.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Terraria's mix of creative crafting and endless exploration will keep you rapt for weeks. But a lack of multiplayer and some wonky touchscreen controls let the experience down.

    • 70 Critic Score
    An amusing game of evasion, The Incident holds little in the way of lasting appeal.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tough and brutal despite plentiful hints and in-depth tutorial, Le Havre is a faithful recreation of the award-winning boardgame.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well presented freemium take on Theme Park-style games, Tiny Tower wins plaudits for its early activity and quirky nature, but lacks long-term compulsion.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Too safe to really be spectacular, Artist Colony is nonetheless a playable people simulator that comes with a unique setting, but fails to truly build on its early promise.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gameloft's mobile imitation of World of Warcraft is an impressive technical and artistic feat, but there's still a bit more work to do before it reaches its full potential.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A groundbreaking, though generic online role-playing game that needs a robust combat system and creative quests to make the portable MMO fantasy a reality.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A focused, thoroughly enjoyable - if somewhat shallow - take on the classic side-scrolling shooter.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though a little monotonous in parts, Monster Mayhem keeps you entertained with inventive enemies and a collection of captivating weaponry.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Half-3D action game, half-strategic tower defence game, the rough-and-ready Heroes and Castles combines its elements well to create a tough and rewarding genre mash-up.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ultimately too plain for its own good, Burn it All – Journey to the Sun's rope burning puzzler is engaging in short bursts, but the attraction of its challenge melts away with repeated play.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Great fun for a while, but frustration will likely set in before the home stretch. Here's hoping a sequel hits the heights that To-Fu can't quite reach.

    • 60 Critic Score
    A few flashy upgrades and new specialist units do little to camouflage the fact that this is a rehash of the original Tiny Troopers.

    Bobbing is no picnic, but if you've got the patience to deal with its stringent demands you'll find a lot to enjoy in its creative, intelligently designed gameplay.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Occasionally messy, often offensive, but sometimes brilliant, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is a blend of entertainment and frustration unlike anything else.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Little Inferno is a smart and subversive work of art that pokes fun at freemium games. But its dedication to the joke often hurts the fun little physics toy at the core.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Poor writing, conventional action, and a general lack of polish conspire to make Gangstar: Miami Vindication an underwhelming game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Infuriating and compelling in equal measures, this is the very definition of niche gaming.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although this port does little to spruce up a decade-old adventure, enough quality shines through to make Riven a worthwhile play.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple shoot and score highscore game, Flick Kick Football is ephemeral fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it lacks the long-term appeal that many other PlayStation Mobile titles boast, Fuel Tiracas offers tense and challenging gameplay that is best sampled in short bursts.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat twist on the shooter with some surprisingly sharp claws.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Adventures of Mana is an entertaining blast from the past, but it's high price point might put off those with a casual interest.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fast and reasonably flashy arcade blast with a few tricks up its retro sleeve.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cute, casual time waster of a game that delivers fun, funk, and pocket-sized distraction on demand.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The combat here is good fun, and it's presented well, but technical issues and no multiplayer damages its long-term appeal.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-built and novel take on the tower defence genre, Anthill: Tactical Trail Defence doesn't quite fulfil its promise, but it's still worthy of your attention.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pretty and playable turn-based tactics game that needs to go rogue and break from genre conventions with new ideas and fresher gameplay.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It can become repetitive and roguelike fans may find it too easy going, but Dungeonism is a refreshingly accessible take on a familiar genre.
