    It could use a bit of tweaking and maybe a better level-skip function, but it's worth checking out for free.

    If you're not particularly tied to the Waldo series, there are better hidden object games with more variety on the App Store, although few posses as much charm as Where's Waldo?.

    There's not a lot of variety in the levels in terms of game-play, but it's a relaxing way to pass a few brainless minutes.

    Chrome Wolf is yet another Kemco-published RPG that falls somewhere in the crack between great and awful, making it a decent choice for hungry genre fans, but of little interest to anyone else.

    100 Trials is still a good mission-based puzzler and worth checking out. Just don't expect anything particularly groundbreaking with it.

    With a better online scoring system, Star*Burst would be amazing.

    Mini Meteors isn't the most elegant or original game I've played, but it is a good take on gameplay that I haven't seen before on iOS.

    Gamers looking for a novel twist on tower defense should definitely consider checking out Human Defense. While the uneven difficulty and IAP may turn off some, I enjoyed the successful melding of puzzle and tower defense.

    1-Bit Rogue is a fun little pick-up-and-play title, but given the embarrassment of riches in the roguelite genre on iOS, it doesn't really stand out in any significant way. The controls can be a little fussy, and getting your character in shape for a proper run at the final boss involves a fair chunk of grinding.

    But for all the flaws and inconsistencies with this game that I can point out, I struggle to put this one down. The concept is a ton of fun, and there's definitely some elements of a great game here.

    Doctor Who: Legacy might not be a love letter to the series, but it's clearly in love with it. If you share that loyalty, there's plenty of fun to be had with the game.

    Still, I give QuestLord a lot of credit for properly introducing me to a genre that I never really could get into. With a streamlined attribute and quest system, there's not a lot of depth that is traditionally found in other titles. However, it's for this exact reason that I think it succeeds for newbies like me. Assuming you're looking to give dungeon crawlers a try, I'd definitely recommend QuestLord as an introductory taste.

    Revolution 60 would make a terrific animated movie, but as a game, I'm left a little cold by it.

    While it may be too difficult for some, I enjoyed my time with Dual Survivor, as multitask-centric games don't come around too often -- just note that those of you who are willing to put in the time will definitely appreciate it a little more. I wish it had a bit more of a personality for sure, but the gameplay makes up for it and it's even more fun with a friend.

    This is a pretty simple game-the high score chase is great, but there's not much else to it.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Running around without a head and with bombs for hands is far more fun than you'd think, and even if the game doesn't ramp up the challenge as much as most of its ilk, the total quirk and oddness of it all should make for an enjoyable experience for most.

    I found the game to be a worthy twist on the Tetris genre; relaxing to play and engaging, with a compelling soundtrack and effects.

    If you have a lot of patience, the atmosphere and unusual spin on familiar mechanics in RETSNOM might win you over.

    It's a bit of a one-trick pony, but it does that trick very well.

    At least Chromanoids is a good homage to those games in every other way, with stylish retro art, a campy storyline and good sound.

    The look and feel of it screams cheap Flash game, but something about it makes it difficult to walk away from it.

    If super careful timing sounds good to you, then you're probably going to like this game.

    It's a no-frills platformer that hearkens back to an era of simplicity, which comes with its own set of flaws and issues. But as someone who grew up during that era and has put up with worse, I could put up with those problems to find an interesting little surprise at the end of the tunnel.

    While I’ll certainly say it’s still worth checking out, I feel like some minor tweaks could make it far more enjoyable.

    As far as built-for-mobile action RPGs go, Reaper is worth every free second you have - if you find yourself enjoying what you see from the freemium period. The beauty of free-to-try is… you get to see for yourself. My job is then to tell you what comes after.

    I don't think there's enough here to keep the interest of those who aren't fans of TMNT, but if spending a day or two bashing scores of Foot soldiers with the brothers sounds like a good time to you, Portal Power won't let you down.

    There's plenty of content to play through, with 80 levels currently in the game and more coming in updates. Burn the Rope is definitely worth a look if you're interested in a unique puzzle game, and if you aren't afraid to spin your device around in public.

    There's little creativity, but there's effective design. In a genre so saturated as TD, however, it takes both to stand out.

    Swords & Arrows, like the game it pays homage to, is an easy-to-pick up, fun way to wage war with your friends, and it's quite welcome in my software library anytime.

    Gleamer doesn't aim too high, but as a result, it feels very grounded and straightforward, with a unique visual style to boot. You know exactly what you're getting into here, and the precision platforming holds up despite a few design flaws.
