    • 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hero of Sparta II is missing the polish to transform its clever combat mechanics and non-stop action from zero to hero.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Looking a whole lot better than it plays, OMG Pirates!'s Cartoon Network-esque visuals can't hide the fact that it's an uninspiring hack and slash game - entertaining for short periods but not worthy of much long-term attention.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Puerto Rico HD is a good game at heart, but its unfriendly graphics and interface will leave newcomers out at sea.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Challenging, competitive word-searching make Wordament a game worth playing whether you're padding your Live stats or not.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fine little abstract for the mobile age, which trades a bit of depth and variety in exchange of accessibility.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A small-sized roguelike with a pretty big heart, Tiny Rogue will fill up a few minutes here and there with a lot of fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Mekorama has its moments, but compared to Monument Valley it just isn't up to the task.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Leap of Fate is a fun and flashy mix up of genres that'll keep your fingers busy for a while.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Disgaea 5 Complete is an inaccessible, ugly, and grind heavy strategy RPG that asks far too much of you to get anything out of it. Unless you already love the franchise, we'd strongly urge you to stay clear.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An imaginative and challenging auto-runner with a wonderful and tightly integrated soundtrack, Bit.Trip Run! only stumbles when it comes to its woolly touch controls.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it suffers from loose physics and level design, The Package is inventive and challenging enough to be worth a purchase.
    • 81 Metascore

    Dual Destinies is disappointing. In general it's more of the same Phoenix Wright we've come to know and love, but the stories and characters are horribly weak.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although Dark Void Zero ran the risk of being a one-joke game, its faux-retro styling combines beautifully with tight gameplay to create a brilliant iPhone action platformer hampered only by its shortness.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a good game here, it's just a shame it's held back from becoming a great one.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pretty, beguiling casual puzzler that deserves to be fleshed out and expanded beyond its free advergame status.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't make this your first point and click, but if you've enjoyed Wadjet Eye's other games and don't mind some leaps of logic and a little eye strain, you'll find an evocative and enjoyable little adventure game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A dark veil of skin-crawling despair wraps around Lone Survivor's tight aesthetics, although as this begins to wear off, you may find the mechanics underneath a little too repetitive
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Whilst it has a few good ideas, Tiny Troopers isn't interesting enough to hold your attention for very long.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A nicely constructed, though often shallow tactical game that deserves attention for its quality portrayal of Transformers G1.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Thanks to its striking visuals and intense action Zombie Shock is instantly appealing, but the gameplay is dragged down by repetition and occasionally awkward controls.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're okay with seeing nothing new, you'll find CandyMeleon will while away a solid few hours of your time with its perfectly palatable sweetie action.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid and frequently impressive platform game, but its ferocious nature often makes it too frustrating.

    For big Minecraft fans, this episodic series should be a no-brainer. But for those who have never mined nor crafted, will the unexplained references, insider jokes, and - crucially - low-fi graphics be a turn off? Probably. If you don't know the terrifying result of putting three wither skulls on some soul sand, for example, you're going to struggle to keep up in this game.

    Absolutely not a video game in any shape or form – but something that's more immediately useful than Brain Training and its ilk.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Virtual City is an unfocused take on time management that explodes with variety to its own detriment.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Cell Bound has the nucleus of a great puzzler, but the rush to introduce new ingredients contaminates this interesting experiment.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    SpongeBob's Super Bouncy Fun Time is a well-presented and competent Peggle clone.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bright and breezy presentation, and a few clever ideas, mean Amoebattle is worth a few hours of anyone's time.
