    If you're a fan of puzzle games in the third dimension and willing to endure a small learning curve, Demolition Master 3D may be worth a try.

    It's a very basic take on things that doesn't strive to do anything more than give you a fun take on the game itself. For its meager price, though, I'm not sure it has to be much more than that.

    Give it a whirl-the Olympics may be over and done with, but if you relieve them with Best of British: Summer Sports, they'll be a lot more fun to remember.

    If you're looking for a puzzler with some bite and don't mind the cartoony visuals or occasional control issues, I'd recommend checking out SubTub for a quick fix.

    Wormarium Arcade could use a better look (and name, for that matter), but it's a decent action-puzzle game to look to if you're itching for a challenge.

    Its nuanced changes to the standard gameplay and overall visual presentation do a decent job of differentiating itself.

    There's a really nice foundation in place here, and even in its current state Buck and the Coin of Destiny is a solid running platformer for the price.

    Sure, Years 5-7 looks good visually, but the switch to a virtual gamepad along with the issues mentioned above deter the game from being better. As it is, the Lego gameplay is intact, meaning that fans of the series should continue to enjoy it.

    Look beyond all the thongs and pasties and you'll find an engaging, if somewhat simplified, monster-hunting experience.

    Hungry Shark is a cute, fun, simple game that's pretty hard to put down.

    If you enjoyed the first game, Five Nights At Freddy's 2 is a no-brainer purchase. It's a better game in almost every respect, though its difficulty might turn some away.

    So caveat emptor: Witch Wars is out to part you from your hard earned money. It doesn't make any attempt to hide that fact. But there's no reason you can't rack up quite a few wins (and coins) just by playing with the free witches.

    If you’re looking for a challenge and can handle some pretty tough water physics puzzles, by all means check out H2FLOW.

    It’s certainly worth checking out but at this point, I don’t think it has enough for long-term viability.

    It's not a shoddy game, though. Along with those 99 story puzzles, World Mosaics offers another hundred or so that don't fit with the story's themes. That's a lot of hours of entertainment to be had.

    On the face of the game is a simple looking castle defense game, but peel that back and you'll find more of a gallery shooter than the flicking frenzy of other castle defenders.

    The game over screen was hilariously bombastic and over the top, which was one thing that made the high frequency of game overs tolerable. I’d recommend playing on an iPhone. Even though it’s a universal game, the visuals don’t scale very well to the iPad. If you want a smoother gameplay experience, or you just have a low tolerance for some clunk, you should probably look elsewhere.

    Those with no special affection for the company can probably find better choices on the App Store in terms of music games, however.

    Sonic Dash is free right now, so give it a try. Whether or not you'll want to pay more into the game for a coin doubler or currency packs requires almost as little consideration: if you like endless runners, you'll like this one, too.

    If you're looking for an atmospheric zombie shooter, this one's an easy recommendation.

    We were surprised to see a rather paltry list of added features in iBomber 2, appearing to be little more than a map expansion despite the addition of a few fun new weapons.
    • tbd Metascore

    It's not the most challenging platform game, with chibs generally being plentiful and easy to locate, but it's fun to play, making this a casual but solid platforming experience.

    If you've never played the game and are wondering if it's worth picking up, I can say that it's alright but it certainly feels like a game from its era in most ways. For the low asking price it's fine, but don't set your expectations too high just because it's a big name.

    It's a really unique and artistic experience that's well suited to the platform. The crashing problem and the physics engine, however, can make it a bit of a chore to play, so we are hoping they can be tweaked in the updates.

    I wish there was a little more to Incidence, but I had a great time learning its rulesets and mastering them. By the time I hit level 100 I felt like a pro, but there wasn't anything left to conquer. I have a feeling that any updates probably won't incrementally increase the difficulty or expand upon the concept (as the complete onboard set doesn't either, it's more of a moderate slow build). Right now Incidence simply is what it is, but puzzle fiends should have a grand old time picking it up while it lasts.

    The Nightjar is a definite bird to catch so check out our forums and see what the community is saying about the experience.

    Star Thief feels like one heck of a demo. I'm looking forward to playing the whole game.

    It's tough to give TheEndApp a hard time about its striking similarities to Temple Run. On one hand, a good deal of its gameplay mechanics are simply derivatives made popular by the popular endless runner. On the other hand, there's a reason why that combination works so well. TheEndApp deserves at least some credit for recreating the experience and, more importantly, doing it well.

    Assuming you can get by its relatively basic offering (as well as the incredibly simplistic visuals), Dark-Quest is worth checking out for genre fans.

    A bigger concern is how cramped the game looks and feels on the iPhone.
