    Quick to pick up but difficult to master, Hometown Story's a tough sell but will yield an investment of enjoyable, quick play sessions if you're patient.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Presenting colourful soccer action in a pleasingly strategic way, Soccer Moves just lacks a little of the fluidity and expansiveness of the great game.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-put-together endless-runner, Miner Problem is as generic as they come.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Spirit Stones is a solid puzzle-battle game, but progression is difficult if you don't want to spend money on new cards and stamina refills.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A bit of good fun that's let down by its ambition for innovation. Still, it's worthwhile if you're a fan of the series, but it's probably best enjoyed with the 3D off.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Lego The Lord of the Rings for iOS costs a fraction of its home console counterpart, and it's a fraction of the game, but it's a decent single-player introduction to the Lego franchise.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A technically superb port of an excellent fighting game, the absense of modes to practise in and lack of caveats for new players will sadly confine this to a niche audience.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Mario Party: Island Tour will provide you and a bunch of mates with a great evening of laughs, but most of the time you'll be laughing AT it rather than with it.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A lot of love has gone into this Mega Man homage, as evidenced by its attractive 2D world, but the simple mechanics of running, jumping, and exploring just aren't of a high enough quality.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A great-looking and highly promising spin-off to Flick Kick Football that trips up on bitty gameplay and an irritating funding system
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A dungeon runner with an intriguing aesthetic, Demon Tribe asks you to invest a lot of time and patience into it to peer down into its obscured depths.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A strangely flat JRPG experience, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is one for fans of the series only.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A-Men 2 is enjoyable in moderation, but the trial and error gameplay soon makes for a rather frustrating experience.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Doctor Who: Legacy is a real treat for Whovians, and a satisfying but derivative RPG-puzzler for the rest of us.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A bright and bouncy arcade brawler that never feels tight or deep enough to warrant the repetition.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There are some signs of ingenuity and adventure in Abducted, but too often it gets lost in its own muddle of mechanics
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You've played games very similar to Star Trek Trexels, but if you're a Star Trek fan, that probably shouldn't put you off too much.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An attractive and fun adventure-puzzler that simply doesn’t justify the high price of its levels with its generic gameplay, even if you're a fan of the cartoon.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite its name, Starborn Anarkist isn't all that different from other dual-stick shooters. It isn't very shocking in any regard, and it won't change anything about any topic it touches. But it's an enjoyable enough shooter.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While you might scratch your head at some of the puzzles, Lost Toys is an odd mish-mash of ideas and themes that never quite gels together into an entertaining experience.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    simian.interface is a stylish and mildly interesting game that will appeal to avant-garde gamers but probably won't satisfy anybody looking for a substantial puzzle game experience.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An incredibly rich and detailed experience, but the control requires far more finesse than a touchscreen offers, and the experience is often as frustrating as it is fun.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ferris Mueller's Day off is a collection of thoughtful and finely tuned puzzles, surrounded by atrocious cartoon art and abysmal reference humour.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    RoboCop is an inoffensive target shooter very loosely based on the movie of the same name.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A flat, generic experience, Across Age 2 is reasonably enjoyable, but it doesn't do enough to justify giving it too much attention.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Mega Jump 2 isn't particularly original, and it's 'save' system chips away at the experience, but this is an enjoyable descendant of Doodle Jump all the same.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun, functional, flat: Farm Heroes Saga is a re-skin of a previous King game that by this point everyone has played to death.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    In Fear I Trust could have been a worthy entry to the creepy escape-the-room genre, but it's let down by poor controls, fumbled puzzles, and tired horror clichés.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dawn of the Plow is a simple arcade challenge with surprising depth. It's just a shame that it isn't as responsive as it should be.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Sure, Game of War - Fire Age isn't a great game, but the people playing it are an entertaining bunch indeed.
