    Xevious is a true arcade classic, offering a delicate slice of shooting action that will seriously test your gaming skills. The asking price, however, is far too high to fully recommend.

    Familiar gameplay doesn't take away from Swing King's fun and challenging presentation.
    • 72 Metascore

    While it may lack the depth of some other racers on the App Store, Table Top Racing has enough gusto and playability to make it a winner.

    While not all of the puzzles in Dr Reiner Knizia's Brainbenders will take your fancy, there's enough in here to ensure that at least some of it will appeal. The over-arching mechanic adds flavour to ingredients that are otherwise sometimes bland.

    Although it has a few rough edges, Skate It nevertheless ollies over the competition and triumphantly kick-flips its way to the top of the DS skateboarding pile.

    Dudeski is a fast and fun ski sim that's loaded with charm. This game's twitchy challenge is enough to keep you coming back for more.

    A tightly packed roguelike adventure, Not Quite Red is as much about maths as it is mashing skulls.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The finger-friendly gameplay of Viking Tales: Mystery of Black Rock makes for a compelling action game, even if there's little reason to return once you've seen its waters.

    CCG fans are unlikely to be lured from their heavyweights of choice, but those looking to supplement their gaming diet could do far worse than giving Star Admiral a go.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Turbo Dismount is a single-note game, but it plays that note painfully well.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Le Vamp is a cute and enjoyable - if not groundbreaking - endless-runner that takes few risks.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Zenonia 2 is a fun, yet far too faithful sequel that offers only cursory changes and not the substantive improvements necessary for it to be a great follow up.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple and attractive, Mighty Fin offers up a short but well-made casual fillet.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Space Colors is vibrant, dazzling, and has some great controls, but its staccato structure means it never quite shines as brightly as it could.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A tough mixture of time management and puzzle, Farm Frenzy 3 HD doesn't push the series significantly forward, but it's still good fun.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fearsome test of your spatial awareness. For puzzling experts (and those with saintly patience) only.
    • 69 Metascore

    The cheeky humour and robust brick-based action is still present in this latest LEGO game, but the magic of the earlier releases is beginning to fade, making for a game that's strictly for fans of the IP it's based on.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bright and breezy presentation, and a few clever ideas, mean Amoebattle is worth a few hours of anyone's time.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Dragging The Settlers into the world of 3D, Monarchia: Second Dawn's set up could do with refining, but it holds up well enough to deliver a rich and absorbing experience.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A funny, entertaining puzzler. Adventure Xpress might not be the freshest game on the App Store, but it's fun all the same.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A chilled out brain-teaser based on super-simple maths, Noda is hard to fault but isn't especially remarkable either.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It might not fully live up to its promise, but Third Eye Crime is good enough that you'll find something to enjoy.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite some resolution issues, realMyst is a solid remake of a remake, improving slightly on a game that was itself a slight improvement on a game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A short, sharp, angry blast of arcade racing, Pako is challenging enough to keep you coming back time and time again.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A bizarre and intriguing blend of ideas and styles, Forever Lost doesn't always manage to pull off its ambitious plans, but when it does it's pretty special.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it's limited in scope and replayability, Haunt the House: Terrortown is enjoyable and charming enough to make you forgive its shortcomings.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A generously proportioned, cleverly made, if familiar physics-puzzler with a particularly sweet glaze on top.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite a handful of issues, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is an enthralling adventure with great action and killer cooperative multiplayer - just stay away from the unstable iPad version.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fine arcade racer that suffers from slightly imbalanced controls, Rocket Racing League nonetheless soars clear of many a land-based rival.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Frederic - Evil Strikes Back offers more of the rhythm-based action up for grabs in Frederic: Resurrection of Music, but if you loved the first game, that's exactly what you want.
