    The controls are twitchy, but we quite liked one of its few innovations – a wings power-up that can be deployed by madly tapping the screen as your tiny ninja is about to plummet to his doom.

    The game's one black mark is IAPs, used to buy more gems to pay for new hero outfits and game levels. They max out at a whopping £69.99, so don't leave your device signed in near any youngsters who might fancy buying the hero an expensive hat.

    But a 3D twist – jumping platforms surround a spinning tower – gives fans of the genre something new to tackle.

    The game is tougher than Doodle Jump, demanding that you rapidly position your monster above the next coin, but it's rewarding when you manage to complete a level.

    The five stages play with classic Namco arcade games in an amusing way, the graphics are rich and well-defined, and the controls are tight. This is just as well, given the relative toughness of the boost sections.

    At its best, then, this is Spy Hunter and Burnout's highlights combined; at its worst, it's frustrating drudge-work. A pity.

    While only diverting for a limited time, this is a nice little nostalgia trip nonetheless.

    It's almost great – it just needs an extra spit and polish before we can wholeheartedly recommend it.
    • 71 Metascore

    Being able to spend credits to level up your weapons makes Siegecraft able to stand up to the Viking horde, but it's still far from the best catapult title around.
    • 84 Metascore

    But the delightful visuals, atmospheric sounds, excellent voice work and enthusiasm with which the whole thing has been put together manages to sweep away any of the ingrained cynicism toward movie tie-ins, and you're left satisfied and charmed by it.

    The problem is, this task is all there is, and while you can fine-tune tactics to better your score, it's frustrating to have to wait until powers are unlocked every game.
    • 84 Metascore

    It looks lovely, and while you're on track it's all very – yes – nice, but it could have been something much more compelling.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Another slightly cynical but neatly executed take on the GTA format.

    If you want the full experience and have the hardware, go for the iPad version, but otherwise, this is a great way to get your TTR fix.

    Come on Sesame Street, kids these days expect more – so where are your sharing options and monster games?
    • 85 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Movement is done through swiping in your intended direction – it's nicely simple, but imprecise. Sometimes there are small monster-like creatures, which come out to play at night.
    • tbd Metascore

    It's a pleasing game of cat and mouse, but despite some extra web-slicing tools, does feel a bit one-note. It's damn tricky, too – an early wrong move will leave you scuppered in a checkmate scenario. We told you they were evil.

    Still, this is a solid title, with plenty of potential. In short bursts it's a lot of fun, and it can be genuinely tense when you're out of ammo and fleeing through a decaying prison while zombies go after your blood.

    Charming, but beyond barebones.

    As a rescue-'em-up, Saucelifter's under half the price, brighter and far more fun. Get that instead.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An emphasis on live action that too often happens under your prodding digit, making levels past the first couple of dozen hugely frustrating? Oh. And what a shame - we really wanted to like this one, and everything else about it is fab.
    • 74 Metascore

    Super Bit Dash is quite close to greatness, but while it looks lovely, the controls aren't quite tight enough, and the finite number of rooms repeats quickly.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The game's not bad, just entirely forgettable.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Wonder why this germ of a good game has average execution and problematic controls (angled shots are tough when your thing's near a screen corner). Realise wading through lower levels every game is a chore. Quit.

    It's the kind of thing you can lose hours to, but we never found ourselves excited or addicted.
    • 75 Metascore

    What's less fine is the game's imprecision, forcing you to play levels over and over until you stumble on placing a bomb on a specific pixel. The annoyance is such we were soon fed up, unintentional sinister undercurrent aside.
    • tbd Metascore

    And while the game looks pretty, it lacks the challenge of the similar LostPixels and the character of eBoy FixPix.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It all feels like a beautiful graphical demo where someone forgot to put a game in.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    At its best, the game resembles a side-on Zen Bound, but the gradual introduction of arcade elements ends up being a frustration, since your finger too often obscures the action.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Briefly diverting, but quickly becomes forgettable.
