    Rocket Bunnies never completely grabbed me. It's a solid, even game that's good across the board that is never quite great. If you're looking for a new physics platformer, you certainly won't go wrong grabbing this one. It's not quite a universe of entertainment, but it's a galaxy or two for sure.

    I wouldn't call LvLn a clone of Slayin', because it's so much more than that. "Inspired" is a far better term, and it's definitely worth digging deep into the RPG elements to find out why.

    Since the first chapter costs nothing to try out, there's really no good reason not to download Trouble With Robots if you like the look of it. It's simple, clever, and funny, albeit a bit slow in the beginning and over far too quickly.

    LEGO Jurassic World is par for the course for iOS LEGO games.

    Nakama really is a great action experience, even if there's not a whole lot to do. With so much potential in the game's combat system, I hope a full sequel or even a content update really takes advantage of the solid engine.

    A great little package. It's even Universal. If you like your word games to come with a big dose of strategy and logic, you should definitely check it out.

    This is probably King's best game on iOS since Candy Crush, though it still falls well short of it.

    If you're snowed in and not completely snowed out on winter sports, it's worth a bit of your time.

    In the end, Skate It for iPhone greatly improves upon the already impressive game that was found on the DS a year and a half ago.

    While the gameplay on the whole is a bit thin, Space is Key is pretty entertaining for a 99¢ title. At times you'll feel like breaking your device over your knee due to the difficulty, but completing the game is a fairly quick and satisfying experience.

    If it weren't for the dodgy controls and interface, Megatroid would be a top-tier game.

    While it doesn't exactly innovate on the genre, it's still something I find myself coming back to, forever intent on nudging my menagerie over the next performance plateau.

    We really enjoyed our time with Jump o'Clock and recommend it as a great casual time waster that will keep you at it for a long while trying to beat the challenges.

    Chronology is a great game on paper and has hit some bumps along the way into implementation on iOS.

    Having said all that, Rockabilly Beatdown is a good mindless beat 'em up that actually has a decent amount of strategy involved.

    This has never been the strongest single-player KOF, so I'm not sure it's worth suffering the finicky controls if you're only going to play against that vile, cheating CPU.

    As long as you don't mind a short experience, The Great Prank War is consistently fun from start to finish.

    Overall the interface on Spectromancer is an impovement in functionality, at a price in style. Kard Kombat has a consistent, dark and creepy look, while Spectromancer is very much generic high fantasy.

    While the implementation isn't perfect, and the visuals (partially due to the near copying) are lackluster, there's enough here to check out.

    Regardless of the relative lack of content, I still think Ninja Throw tosses out enough interesting ideas to be worth a playthrough, even with the current oversaturation of physics-based puzzlers. However, don't expect much of a challenge for the most part.

    Add all of that together and you've got a game that's certainly worth playing for a little while to experience its high points, but one that is unlikely to hold your attention for all that long.

    If you loved all of the previous games in this series, you'll probably enjoy Lifeline: Whiteout as well, but it's harder to make a case for the game if you fall outside of that particular category.

    If you’re in the market for a new dual-stick shooter, definitely give Hero Siege a try.

    You’ll probably love this though, especially if you see yourself enjoying a portable game of Operation, and although it’s not something I’d play repeatedly myself, it’s great for a touch of comic relief.

    I still think the underlying game in Brother in Arms 3 is worth playing, but there are a lot of potential players that will be instantly turned off by all the freemium aspects. Sadly, I can’t say I particularly blame them in this case.

    Regardless, if you’re a TD aficionado and are looking for the next great title to play through, by all means check out TowerMadness 2. However, don’t expect to see anything you haven’t already seen.

    Make no mistake, Technika Q is an excellent rhythm game and is a welcomed addition to the App Store. Unfortunately I think a lot of the extra layers on top of the core game do far more to detract from the experience than add to it.

    While I wish the port was a bit nicer, there's plenty of joy to be had here.

    Monster Trucks Nitro 2 has impressive graphics, loads of content to play through, and an over the top fun factor that makes it a recommended purchase.
