    It plays just like the home versions of LittleBigPlanet, but that's ironically to its detriment. However, it's still a quality product in its own right.

    Angry Birds Star Wars is faithful to the source material, filled with content, imaginative, and fun. Film tie-in or not, this is the best 'Birds yet.

    All the content of the Amiga originals - plus some new levels - make this update a must-have for retro enthusiasts and twin-stick blaster fans alike. It's just disappointing that the two-player mode wasn't included.

    If you've not played The Witness before, then this mobile port is as good a place as any to experience it. But if you've already finished it elsewhere, some of the sparkle is definitely going to be missing on a second playthrough. Coming to The Witness fresh though is one of the most beguiling gaming experiences you can have. And that's something pretty special.

    A sharp and entertaining game of mixing potions and clearing cards. Miracle Merchant looks gorgeous too, and it cements Tiny Touch Tales as one of the most interesting developers working in digital cards at the moment.
