    The Sims 3: Ambitions builds on the core game with a welcome slate of new features, even if they don't make for a must-have expansion pack.

    FlipShip isn't the most original shooter, but genre fans will enjoy the ride.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An acute mix of intense twin-stick shooter action and dazzling visuals hampered by awkward controls.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it doesn't win any awards for originality, Pizza Boy is a well-executed, if too short, tribute to classic 2D platform gaming.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Too simple a set up to stretch out across an entire game, Egg vs. Chicken is nonetheless an entertaining match-three battler, even if it comes to the boil a little too quickly.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A run and gun twin-stick shooter with a little more to it than most. Xenowerk has its problems, but it's worth a look all the same.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Angry Birds HD adds a new sheen to the excellent original title, yet offers no new content, features, or substantive enhancements.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Space Grunts is a decent roguelike, but that's about it.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While its resource-management gameplay won't be for everyone, there's a pleasant rhythm to Rebuild that makes it difficult to put down.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Silent Age: Episode Two wraps up the story nicely, but it wastes its clever time-travelling mechanic.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A beautifully designed game that'll turn your life inside out for a week.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A typically polished footy game with a surprisingly generous freemium model. But EA needs to improve the way it plays touchscreen football if it's to keep the paying punters happy for FIFA 15.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A combination of cheeky grins and exploding donkeys makes Worms: Open Warfare 2 a simple and enjoyable slice of handheld action.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very good physics-based puzzler that's held back by a woolly scoring system.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slick, accessible platform-puzzler with a satisfying emphasis on fast reactions and quick thinking.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid snowboarding experience, but one that doesn't quite have the bite to make it a classic.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Age of Zombies needs to pull back on the lame jokes to let its nicely designed gameplay shine through.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a fresh idea but somehow the block dropping antics of Art Style: KUBOS don't live up to its potential.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A lovingly remastered version of an iconic game, but sadly one that will only frustrate and annoy when not viewed through rose-tinted spectacles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It takes some getting used to, but stick with this and you'll find a platformer of real quality.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney retains the wit and charm of the original release without much needed tailoring of the controls and interface to fit iPhone and iPod touch.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A strong tower defence game that does very little new, but doesn't put a foot wrong, either.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Taking its cue from as many popular iPhone casual games as it can, Contre Jour is polished and perfectly fine to play. It's just not very original or exciting.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a solid game here, but Drop Wizard doesn't manage to turn its good ideas and great presentation into a must-buy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A novel and entertaining blend of sandbox and strategy with a unique theme and a few unfortunate PC port flaws.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The perfect beginner's strategy role-player, even if it's one you'll eventually abandon for better and more involved alternatives.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lili is a gorgeous game with lots of personality and bundles of charm. But as a game it's rather insubstantial and struggles to hold your attention for long.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sharp and angry roguelike that mixes arcade sensibilities into its DNA but doesn't quite pull off the right quantities.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mutant Mudds is a great slice of retro-styled platforming for the 3DS, which just falls at the last few hurdles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gunman Clive 2 is full of good ideas and surprises, but it can often feel a little flat.
