    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.

    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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A workmanlike small screen accompaniment to its big screen inspiration, Iron Man 2 keeps the PSP ticking along nicely.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bub and Bob would be proud: Jelly Dash has that golden era Taito positivity in spades, and squishes in an entertaining and fast-paced puzzler at the same time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Shamefully enjoyable, and somewhat broken, Dynasty Warriors 8 doesn't disappoint.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Reborn with new features and enhanced audio and graphics, Assassin's Creed II: Discovery entertains despite fundamental shortcomings in its level design.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Menial tasks and lame mini-games weigh down the fun in what ought to have been a thrilling extension of The Sims 3.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pigs Can't Fly livens up the flappy formula, but its problems can be more than a little aggravating.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interesting twist on the shooter genre, Zombie Commando won't be to everyone's tastes, but there's still a lot here to like.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The race for the best driving game on mobile almost got interesting, but 2K Drive has too many technical issues to truly keep up with the very best in the field.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Archangel is a well-crafted dungeon-crawler with a handful of nice touches, but it could use a little more spark and imagination in its world design and core gameplay.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The excellent game book engine underneath can't quite iron out House of Hell's problems. It's still a good game, but it pales somewhat in comparison to its predecessor.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Stylish but standard; Old Clockmaker's Riddle is a good example of a title in a genre you may well be a bit sick of by now.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interesting take on sliding down a mountain, Cubed Snowboarding is a lot of fun while it lasts.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid if unremarkable arcade racer with an interesting control method and some annoying free to play trappings.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An extremely solid experience that mostly succeeds. The impatient might object to the convoluted puzzles and the combat is a weak link, but as the first serious example of handheld horror, this sets a satisfyingly high bar.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it might be a little tight with its content, Transworld Endless Skater has enough going for it that it's worth a try.
    • 82 Metascore

    It can become repetitive and roguelike fans may find it too easy going, but Dungeonism is a refreshingly accessible take on a familiar genre.
