    A slow-paced but satisfying forest simulation that's good for kids, SimAnimals is a bit too simple for adult players. And while it doesn't quite fulfil its potential, but growing things is still a lot of fun.

    It may be more of the same, but that's alright by us. CSR Classics is another quality round of car collecting, upgrading, and drag racing.

    Swoc: of Swords and Blocks has a few bumps and dings, but the overall product is a solid match-three battle game.

    Another flawed attempt at something different, The Magnificent Pixel Dynasty is more hit than miss though.
    • 75 Metascore

    Even Up isn't the most exciting puzzler on the App Store, and it arguably suffers for its lack of penalties and rewards, but it's a decent replacement for Sudoku all the same.

    An interesting shooter with some neat ideas that doesn't overstay its welcome.

    Although Ragnarok Odyssey Ace falls into many of the same pitfalls as its predecessor, it still offers a fair amount of fun if you don't overthink it.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Despite repetitive missions and performance issues, Xenome, Episode 1 has the right stuff when it comes to role-playing.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Floating Cloud God Saves The Pilgrims in HD is a fine shmup, although it doesn't really offer much new over the original.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Thanks to solid arcade handling, Juice 2 offers a well-honed driving experience that's enhanced with plenty of customisation options.

    A hard-as-nails arcade dodger, Mayhem! will be too tough for some, but if you're after a challenge it's well worth picking up.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rich and vibrant platformer with one or two control and balance issues that prevent it from joining the list of the best console conversions on iOS.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that's simple to pick up but requires some practice, Fish Out Of Water! is an enjoyable sea creature-flinging romp.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fans of Advance Wars should have this extremely challenging game on their radar, for it's one they'll relish.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable little title perfect for scratching your mobile arcade gaming itch.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well made blast of quick dodging fun, Chocohero lacks the balancing needed to make it a classic, but it's still worth picking up.
    • tbd Metascore

    When something looks to have all the ingredients of strategy excellence, you can't help but be a bit sad when it turns out to be more shallow than you'd hoped. As it stands, though, Super Tank Poker boasts brilliant music, an excellent sense of style, and the most entertaining, explosive approximation of poker I've ever seen.

    Capitalism Quest has issues with slow servers, but its basic concept is interesting - and a bit sobering.
    • tbd Metascore

    Offering up genuinely unique gameplay, Carnage Heart EXA does what it sets out to do well. But because of that the rest of the game suffers - meaning most battles are slow and somewhat uninteresting affairs.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever twist on the undead craze, Brainsss focuses on grey matter in more ways than one, and just about manages to pull off its mix of stealth and strategy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Wildlings is perfect for those who want a more active tower defence game without having to worry about too many variables, but others will find its lack of options frustrating.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you can find three friends who are also willing to fork out the entry fee, you're laughing. Otherwise, Atomic Ninjas is a fairly good (but utterly dead) online battler.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    NinJump Rooftops literally takes over where NinJump leaves off, and it's an equally fun, if familiar, experience.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Unapologetically shallow, undeniably fun. A lightweight confection that's particularly tasty with two.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A teeth grindingly awful game, but you'll still want to get to the end of it.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A concise and enjoyable action RPG-lite with an irritating - but not deal-breaking - IAP system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Whether or not confusion can be considered a viable gameplay mechanic is debatable, but we salute double drop for its impressive efforts to find out.
    • 71 Metascore

    Pilotwings Resort is classic Nintendo, providing enjoyable soaring action throughout. With only an evening's worth of content available however, the entertainment doesn't last very long.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A big silly blockbuster of a game that wants desperately to be on something other than a touchscreen device. Godfire: Rise of Prometheus has a meaty bounce to it, but its lack of subtlety will likely be too much for some to take.

    Mikey Shorts Halloween is effectively a cleverly skinned demo of the main game, but considering it's free we really can't complain.
