    • 60 Critic Score
    A cute if unsophisticated castle defence game, Army Defender is fun to play but doesn't offer much of a challenge.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a good story, but those looking to emulate their favourite Belgium detective will find the repetitive brainteasers and limited sleuthing frustrating.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Too safe to really be spectacular, Artist Colony is nonetheless a playable people simulator that comes with a unique setting, but fails to truly build on its early promise.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Its flawed-yet-enjoyable core experience means Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess is charming but also frustrating.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tron Evolution is a solid action/puzzle title but underneath the neon art style there's no much you haven't seen before.
    • 53 Metascore

    One for CSI fans only, sloppy mini-games and annoying dialogue mar what could've been an engaging point-and-click adventure.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A great-looking 3D maze game, Aerox is at its best when negotiating its flowing courses at speed - in spite of minor control and menu concerns.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While its ambitious scale is admirable, Aralon: Sword and Shadow possesses a myriad of flaws that yield clunky, unrefined gameplay.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Virtual City is an unfocused take on time management that explodes with variety to its own detriment.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score

    A highly formulaic role-playing game, Eternal Legacy has some redeeming qualities that support limited enjoyment.

    • 60 Critic Score
    A dull introduction and occasional unfair difficulty spikes aren't enough to run The War of Eustrath HD, particularly in light of its interesting battle mechanics.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A promising if scruffy brawler with an ill-advised open world element tacked on, Corporate Fury is destined for cult status.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it marks a steady improvement over the first game, Ghosts'N Goblins: Gold Knights 2 hasn't taken the strides necessary to lift it above decent status.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While Ghosts 'N Goblins remains a perfectly reasonable platformer, it struggles to bring anything new to the table other than its innate difficulty made harder by awkward controls.

    • 60 Critic Score

    • 60 Critic Score
    An attempt to address the deficiencies of the first iPhone game, SimCity Deluxe is likewise hampered by controls that simply don't befit the device.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Dungeon Defenders never gets the opportunity to show off its creative gameplay due to a poorly designed interface.
    • 84 Metascore

    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An inadequate interface, poor localisation, and underdeveloped story make 1112, Episode 02 a disappointing follow up.
