    Another welcome addition to the eShop's already stellar line-up, The Rolling Western's unique spin on tower defence is as noteworthy as its flaws.

    Those wishing for a Doctor Who action game will probably turn their nose up at this virtual card game, but it'll be their loss as this is a surprisingly enjoyable gem that younger gamers are likely to remember fondly for some time.

    Repetitive levels and odd control choices threaten to shut Revolt down, but solid action and an attractive presentation keep it powered up.

    An intriguing look at where some of the ideas in Sorcery! and 80 Days came from, Down Among the Dead Men isn't as good as Inkle's other games, but it's still worth a look.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solid tower defence gameplay with a nifty, if entirely skippable, augmented reality feature thrown in for good measure.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun, if slightly repetitive, zombie-killing driving game with a Tyrannosaurus rex and UFO thrown in for good measure.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The button-based control system isn't ideal but other than this, Bloons Minis is an enjoyable version of the popular web puzzler.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A lovingly presented, if scruffily haphazard, roguelike that shows its board game workings.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Back to the Future Ep2 HD would be more charming if it weren't for pesky technical problems and performance issues.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Coconut Dodge possesses entertaining gameplay great for filling spare moments, even if it's not wildly original or innovative in terms of mechanics.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Whether you like pinball or not, there's no denying that Marvel Pinball 3D ticks numerous right boxes.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are sadly no prizes for guessing which evergreen Nintendo franchise this game is trying to replicate, and while it's not in the same class, Dragon Island Blue should appeal to fans of the genre.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it lacks the long-term appeal that many other PlayStation Mobile titles boast, Fuel Tiracas offers tense and challenging gameplay that is best sampled in short bursts.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's still plenty of room for improvement with patches and bug fixes, but NBA 2K14 shows signs of improvement.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    FlipShip isn't the most original shooter, but genre fans will enjoy the ride.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun match-three RPG hybrid that hits all the right notes, even if they are familiar ones.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Popstar Physics: Save Toshi 2 isn't pretty, but it sure is addictive.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A relentlessly stylish sensory assault that's so in tune with its underlying mechanics that it works, despite the game's obvious flaws.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A typically polished footy game with a surprisingly generous freemium model. But EA needs to improve the way it plays touchscreen football if it's to keep the paying punters happy for FIFA 15.

    • 70 Critic Score
    You've trodden on this battlefield before, but Puzzle Trooper is undeniably fun.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Temperamental controls and B-grade visuals aside, this is a lovely little downloadable racer with a surprisingly compulsive time trial format.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Freeze is a simple and rather drab-looking game, but its tactile physics-based gameplay and imaginative level design lifts it above the humdrum.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Robot Gladi8tor cleverly expands on the Infinity Blade blueprint with FPS freedom and stunning presentation, but it's not quite as polished as Chair Entertainment's offerings.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining hack and slash defence title, Samurai vs Zombies Defense could do with a bit more hacking and slashing, but it's still worth a try if Japanese violence is your bag.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A sweet-natured and appealing puzzler with a smattering of rhythm action. Entertaining but brief and a bit lacking in depth.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A worthy sequel to a much-loved original, but one that suffers from structural changes introduced to accommodate IAP.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another endless-runner that does everything perfectly well, Amazing Runner doesn't quite live up to its title, but it's entertaining all the same.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ignore the fact that this is attached to a licence, and look past the few faults it currently has, and you'll find that DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot is an excellent team-based multiplayer shooter, with solid controls and great visuals.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Happy Hills 2: Bombs Away! is slower-paced and more frustrating than many other physics puzzlers, but its addictive qualities can’t be denied.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This sequel may go beyond the portals, but does little to go beyond its predecessor. A decent game, even if it's only marginally better than the first.
