    Interesting to begin with, Zombie Road Trip quickly veers off-course.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A generous, quietly entertaining puzzle game that's only slightly let down by a lack of variety and sedate difficulty curve.

    Alien Hive has the foundations of an excellent match-three puzzler, but it spoils the mood with restrictive gameplay systems and an over-reliance on IAPs.

    An excellent entry in the catalogue of mobile side-scrolling shooters. The pacing, challenge, and action are pitch-perfect.

    It looks lovely, but sadly Greedy Grub is as avaricious as its title suggests. Only the very patient - or wealthy - should bother.

    Looking for a game to really sink your teeth into? If you've got the patience, like being sociable in your builders, and are willing to sink the time in, then Total Domination – Reborn is for you.

    While its single-player sections are decent enough, Lub vs Dub's uproarious multiplayer is more than worth the entrance fee alone.

    Chillaxian delivers what its name promises: an arcade shooter that manages to be challenging and mellow.

    Joining Hands 2 is another slice of gentle family-friendly entertainment that, while fun to play and pleasant to look at, tends to end up in a little too much trial and error for its own good.

    Though Shadow Vamp controls like a slippery little monster at times, there's a clever and original puzzle experience at the (black, unbeating) heart of this game.

    Happy Hills 2: Bombs Away! is slower-paced and more frustrating than many other physics puzzlers, but its addictive qualities can’t be denied.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable mashing together of shooter and runner, Strike Force Heroes: Extraction won't go down in history, but it'll keep you entertained for a while.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With Burn the Rope 3D, Big Blue Bubble may not quite add a whole new dimension to the original game, but it does successfully develop the formula with tighter controls and more interesting level design.

    Doctor Who: Legacy is a real treat for Whovians, and a satisfying but derivative RPG-puzzler for the rest of us.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Doodle Kingdom doesn't deviate far from Doodle God's original formula, but the addition of fantasy elements and new sub-quests is entertaining.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a slightly jumbled affair, but there's enough fun in Block Fortress War's angular battles to keep you entertained.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interestingly built mix of puzzling and platforming, Deadlings is intriguing enough to keep you entertained for a good while.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An intuitive and absorbing puzzle game with a solid central concept. It just needs to branch out a little in order to join the puzzling elite.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining new chapter in the LucasArts saga, but one that could have used a bit more time to fix silly technical flaws before being unleashed.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever blending of two licences, Star Wars: Tiny Death Star does exactly what you'd expect it to.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Gorgeous to look at but ultimately frustrating to play, Shadowgun: DeadZone needs a lot of work before it becomes the finished article.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, if occasionally frustrating mix of genres and ideas, Naughty Kitties is worth a play just to see how well it blends them all together.
    • 70 Metascore

    An inadequate interface, poor localisation, and underdeveloped story make 1112, Episode 02 a disappointing follow up.
    • 70 Metascore

    A pretty but repetitive puzzle-based adventure, Shrek the Third feels more like completing a series of chores than having monster-sized fun.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Filled with as many fun moments as mediocre ones, Sonic The Hedgehog 4, Episode 1 is a good start to the revival of the series.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slow-paced but satisfying forest simulation that's good for kids, SimAnimals is a bit too simple for adult players. And while it doesn't quite fulfil its potential, but growing things is still a lot of fun.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent enough wander down memory lane, Spy vs Spy hasn't aged that well, but it's still fun in small doses.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it's unlikely to ensnare new players due to its plodding pace and labyrinthine rules, Caylus is a faithful adaptation of an award-winning boardgame that fans will adore.

    Metal Slug 7 provides great action, but unless you're a total completist, it's far too short an experience.

    Skip buying your kid FIFA on 3DS this year, and give your offpsring Inazuma Eleven 3 instead. It's a novel light RPG experience, with all the compulsive collecting of a sticker album. There's also a decent football story at its core.
