    Frustrating at times and vague to the point of being obtuse, Paper Mario: Sticker Star still shines where it counts.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Replacing swords and sorcery with stuff rabbits and deadpan humour might not seem like a good idea on paper, but Zombocalypse Now proves that there's room for experimentation in the genre.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Living up to its claims of revolution, the game offers a fresh perspective on paint-based puzzling save for its harsh penalty for failure.

    If you go into Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge expecting Civ, you'll come away disappointed. But if all you want is a playful strategy game to be played in 30 minute-chunks, it's great.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very good physics-based puzzler that's held back by a woolly scoring system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Zen Puzzle Garden is a solid puzzler that doesn't break new ground, but does perform its task without quarrel.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    War. What is it good for? A pretty decent builder / battler that will appeal to the more domineering fans of freemium strategy on mobile.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Outlaw shoots first and asks questions later, but its entertaining brand of arcade gunplay and sympathetic approach to IAP make it strangely refreshing.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's a solid touchscreen shooter here, but Epoch 2 doesn't quite hit the right marks.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Its title suggests big changes to the formula that just aren't here, but Dynasty Warriors NEXT will appease series veterans who just want to have a copy of their favourite franchise anywhere they go.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Getting your head around its name might be an epic quest in itself, but 10000000 is an enjoyable fusion of match-three and RPG.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    MonsterCrafter is a unique monster-battling game that forces you to show a little too much love to your critters.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gorgeous to look at and fun to play, Lightning Fighter 2's biggest weakness is the greediness of the developer.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An impressive if slightly lacking debut that delivers high-octane thrills by the bucketful.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Slayin is a solid casual game that chooses its influences wisely but doesn't entirely do them justice.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Online battles and loads of loot save Chronicles of Inotia 2 from errand-like missions and lackadaisical spirit of adventure.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Moto Racer DS is a good choice if you're after a semi-serious bike racer on the DS. It's got more mileage than your average Suzuki's tank.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Reckless Getaway runs out of petrol before the finish, but otherwise this exciting racer is well worth a test drive.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple and competent ball-flicking game bolstered by largely satisfying mechanics and a well-judged progression system.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Baseball Superstars 2011 makes enough improvements on its predecessor to become the definitive version, but it doesn't offer anything substantially new.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bad Dinos has enough clever ideas to refresh the tired tower defence genre - at least for a few hours.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Stand O'Food 3 HD is an interesting, funny take on running a fast food joints.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't expect much in the way of useful tuition if you're an experienced player but for the novice this is a superb place to start.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Don't let the initial impressions of cheapness and shallowness put you off - Las Vegas! manages to reel you in with its blend of luck, strategy, and multiplayer competitiveness.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sqwords is an addictive word game that anyone can play, though the presence of in-app purchases might cheese some players off.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A kompelling combination of a klassic bloody brawler and spin-off mini-game, Ultimate Mortal Kombat's few flaws are dealt a good kicking by the game's awesome online multiplayer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Warlock of Firetop Mountain feels dated, but anyone who experienced the Fighting Fantasy books as a kid should enjoy reliving the past.
