    I have no problem with encouraging players to spend some cash on premium items that are not necessary for normal gameplay. The restrictions in Spice Invaders do not fit that example, especially since all these design choices are solely made to encourage folks to spend money (rather than designs that encourage fun).

    Minor issues aside, I had a ton of fun with Graveyard Shift.

    Eden: The Game is a special type of project that won't appeal to everyone. If you're looking to feel a rush pretty much at all times, battling danger left and right while you build your new utopia, directly interacting with other hostile players, look elsewhere. Everyone else will find a little bit of respite, even if the overall system could stand for a few upgrades and new scenarios down the line.

    Gorilla Gondola is a quality release, with responsive controls, good graphics and energetic music. The gameplay feels fresh and there's definitely skill involved with bouncing the gondola through the tight spots.

    The Gods: Rebellion does a decent job recreating the character action experience on iOS in nearly every aspect save controls. If you have more patience than me (or are simply used to iOS character action titles) by all means check out Rebellion as it offers a lot in its other elements.

    It starts off fairly slow but escalates quickly into a tactical nightmare, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on your view of puzzlers.

    One of those games with a decent gameplay formula that could have been so much more.

    Mountain Biker does a lot of things pretty well, and I’m always on the lookout for something that attempts to evolve (however slightly) on the Tiny Wings up/down hill mechanics. Unfortunately, despite having an interesting tap-and-tilt control scheme and a fitting theme, the game never fully grabbed me.

    Golf Putt Pro offers a perfect way to kill a few minutes of free time during your day. There's global leaderboards for the top 100 scores in all but the 18 Holes mode, and Twitter and Facebook support for every mode.

    Aside from the lack of multiplayer or A.I., this game has room for improvement. I ran into severe performance issues on a couple tracks, seriously limiting my ability to race on them. I also ran out of new parts much too quickly. The customization is the coolest part of this game, so Fabrication Games should have gone nuts with it.

    Thus, I think that Size DOES Matter winds up being a game I enjoyed playing more than I enjoyed how it is structured, but it ain't bad as an arcade survival game with music.

    Load it up, go mental with a machine gun during your coffee break, turn it off and forget. Sounds like pretty good escapism to me.

    Despite its alien-like setting and curious environment, Biosis tells a story that just about everybody can relate to.

    Even with its overall lack of originality, control issues, and occasionally dull encounter design, Mercenaries Saga 2 follows the notes well enough that it should be of interest to fans of Final Fantasy Tactics.

    Clearly inspired by the newest Tron movie, Lightbike 2 looks far from boring.

    There is a lot of potential in the idea alone, so if GameLab can deliver the second episode and the arena mode before upping the price, they might have something truly interesting on their hands as long as they're not scared to make the puzzles a bit more challenging and the shooting parts a bit more sparse.

    With so much content, story, replayability and generally fun gameplay this game would benefit massively from just a little bit of love from the developer to tighten up a few weak spots.

    Dungeons Of Chaos isn't going to be for everyone, but anyone with fond memories of CRPGs from the 1980s should at least give the Lite version a shot.

    A stylized shooter that feels very well implemented, delivers real challenge, supports all iOS devices natively, and costs $0.99.

    Still, with plenty to see, lots of replay value through the many paths you can take, some wonderful illustrations by Gary Chalk, and an intriguing new world, you could do a lot worse in the genre than Gun Dogs

    I can't stress enough that League of Evil 3 easily could have been an in-app-purchase set of levels for League of Evil 2, and not a full release. But with the added challenge and the fact that the new stages are actually pretty good, League fans will find more of what they want yet again with the conclusion of this classic touch platformer trilogy.

    Epic Ninja Game is a rough game in a lot of ways, from the odd way wall-jumping works to the stiff animations and strange difficulty spikes, but it is a considerably more fun game than I was expecting at first glance.

    On its sketch-book visuals alone, Roll Back Home accomplishes that and is worth checking out.

    I really like how retro-ized the whole game is, and how the graphics and interface are designed to look just like a cocktail table arcade machine.

    Mister Frog! is very pretty, with responsive controls and pleasantly old-timey music. This is a game that you and even a very young child might be able to share, trading turns and comparing scores. It's not terribly ambitious, certainly no One Tap Hero, but it does well within the limited scope it sets for itself.

    If you've been desperately craving an Assassin's Creed game set in an 18th Century pirate wonderland to play on the go, this will do the trick, but don't expect too much from it. If you can deal with all the bugs, you'll certainly be taken on a bizarre ride and you'll have a ton of stuff to do in the world.

    Overall, Dead on Sight is a solid zombie sniper game. The action and gameplay are great. So is the comic book. I just wish there was a little more of it – outside of mini games. Our community has been chatting about Dead on Sight on our forums so be sure to check out what everyone is saying.

    Most of the time, though, The Walking Dead: Assault isn't much more than a decent tie-in, one that won't make any waves.

    It's not the deepest game out there (nope, no complicated decisions about who to abandon and who to save here. Just point and shoot), but it's definitely en-gross-ing in all the right ways.
