    Pokémon Art Academy won't make up for you being inherently bad at art, but if you're interested in Pokémon, and drawing, it's a solid purchase.

    A tasking and entertaining arcade blast, Futuridium EP is let down by its occasionally inaccurate controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Easy to pick up and difficult to master, the deceptively twee Hopeless: The Dark Cave is a perfect game for short bursts of entertainment.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pirate's Treasure is a doubloon in the giant chest of twin-stick shooters: it's worth its weight, even if it's only one of many.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An engrossing tower defence game that takes a slightly different - if occasionally awkward - route to success.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good tennis game for the dedicated player looking for a sim-like gaming experience. But for most, Virtua Tennis 3 is more appealing, accessible and, ultimately, fun.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.

    • 70 Critic Score
    The upgrade-focused gameplay means that skill doesn't count for much in Asterix: Megaslap, but it's jolly good fun all the same.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While not quite worthy of a Michelin star, fans of the film and kids looking for fun will be thrilled. It might not offer the biggest of helpings but, while it lasts, Ratatouille tastes great.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A shiny, reasonably well put together game, Offroad Legends 2 just doesn't have the zip of its inspiration.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Perfection! is a decently challenging puzzle game that will leave you seeing dots and arrows for some time.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Armageddon is a straightforward castle vs. castle battler that opts for simplicity and a high level of difficulty over creativity and depth.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A colourful iteration on Pong, Bit.Trip Beat is to be enjoyed in spite of its structural shortcomings.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Part timing, part luck, Canabalt is the kind of quick-fix that has the potential to become a phenomenon, the game's free-running fix giving players a new kind of high score to chase.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid and deceptively involving tower defence game hidden behind some oddly retro visuals, Super Sanctum TD is nonetheless strictly for those who can’t get enough of this over-subscribed genre.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable auto-runner with some auto-combat and RPG systems thrown in for good measure.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Little Acorns falls short of greatness, but it has many of the hallmarks of a hit iOS platformer and it's well worth a download.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Vibrant graphics and bold ideas breathe fresh air into James Cameron Avatar, despite the stifling quirks of its combat system and controls.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A colourful and comprehensive Pokémon clone, Micromon isn't up to the standards of the Nintendo original, but it ably fills a gaping gap in the mobile roster.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The definitive handheld version, Transformers DS boasts decent gameplay, good presentation and clever online features that go beyond traditional movie-licensed fare.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Caught in a zombie apocalypse? Escape From Zombie City can set you straight, with plenty of neat twists on the saturated genre.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Frantic, frenetic, and above all else random, Stardust Hero is an enjoyable - if not too daring - modern take on Peggle.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite offering little new, Air Supply has enough charm and good content to make stand with the best endless running games.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun game that uses Pinball's time-honoured physics to enhance a simple score chaser.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In case you haven't had enough puzzle platforming on PS Vita, Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark provides the goods.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Puzzle Expedition's difficulty curve may be off-kilter, but it's equally hard to deny that the puzzles are very clever.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fast-paced, sometimes repetitive but never boring blaster, TriBlaster is definitely worth a shot.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Does little to peel away the flaws of the original, presenting new levels and mini-games with only incremental changes to its controls and options.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A gurgly, often unpleasant experience. Bio Inc. is surprisingly deep, and not-so-surprisingly grotesque.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mazes of Fate is a classic example of a lovingly crafted yet off-beat GBA title – it might smell a bit iffy but the gameplay can be truly intoxicating.
