    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.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Mutant Mudds is a great slice of retro-styled platforming for the 3DS, which just falls at the last few hurdles.

    Gunman Clive 2 is full of good ideas and surprises, but it can often feel a little flat.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A faithful replication of a mentally taxing strategy board game, Neuroshima Hex is limited by its small selection of gameplay modes but offers an engrossing and complex multiplayer experience.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One third rubbish and one third brilliance, The Sly Trilogy reminds us why the series is so much fun to play and why we forgot about it in the first place.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun and humorous operation, Amateur Surgeon 2 suffers from complications with its controls and difficulty spikes, but remains an appealing prospect.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it's a fun mix of match-three puzzling and role-playing, Dungeon Raid fails to set the two elements in a solid structure and so never gains any long-term appeal.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Just like the marines battling it out against hell's minions, it feels like we've been here before. It's still an intense and entertaing experience - it just isn't a new one.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun, stylish and unique, Surveillant overcomes its relative brevity and sticky controls to stick out as one of the freshest iPhone experiences around.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    In spite of some appealing presentation and a suitably epic quest, Illusia possesses a generic nature and ill-conceived controls prevent it from contributing much to the genre.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Radio Flare REDUX comes close to generating a connection between music and gameplay, though its entertaining action pulsates more with style than sound.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Snail Bob won't get your heart racing with its originality, art-style or presentation, but it is a very well designed physics-puzzler.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fans of the scrolling-text style of iOOTP Baseball will be in their element in this edition. And while the gameplay itself remains familiar and unchanged, it may not prove quite compelling enough for all but the most ardent slugger fans.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it won't give Cut the Rope anything to worry about, Tasty Tadpoles is a solidly made and accessible casual puzzler that your children will probably enjoy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Karateka Classic has the same problems that all vintage games have, but it's a faithful port and its deep gameplay may just surprise you.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A Ride Into The Mountains is a ramshackle indie effort with frustrating controls and poor translation, but it's also imaginative, charming, and worth 69p.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A simple, cathartic on-rails pinball shooter, Smash Hit doesn't have much to offer beyond its initial mechanics, but it's still pretty fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mines of Mars doesn't give you a lot to play with, but it gives you a really intriguing sandbox for you to do it in.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good distraction for anyone who's looking for a new infinite runner with a dash of personality, but not a game that will be long remembered.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sharply drawn free-roaming action game that combines knock-about combat with a steadily expanding world to explore.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A gently paced point-and-click adventure with more heart than difficulty, The Phantom PI Mission Apparition is well worth a look.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining but safe platformer, Goblin Sword is fun enough that it's worth a go.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Brilliant in every aspect of its uniqueness, yet suffering from its almost deliberate lack of depth, Smarter Than You feel like more of a novelty than a revolution.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly sharp and clever racer, Pixel Boat Rush is well worth diving into.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are a couple of nice ideas in Brickies, and it's fun, but it's really just another block breaker.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There is nothing much wrong with Blades of Brim, but there's nothing much to grab you and yell "PLAY ME!" either.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There are some really great ideas here, but they get lost behind muddy graphics and unimaginative track design.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fast and reasonably fresh arcade experience with some solid ideas and a few niggles that are easy enough to look past.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Escapists may not be a perfect port but for its price it's a worthy addition to the mobile gamer's library.
