    As a tower defense game, Siegecraft TD does a good job with its established gameplay and decent visuals engine. Toss in its great multiplayer system and it becomes a game that really stands out.

    Sling Kong's core mechanic is fun because slinging feels good, and Protostar puts in all the work they can into their games to make them look and feel as good as possible.

    It's simply an entertaining game that manages to test both your reflexes and strategy IQ and offers enough diversity to distinguish itself from the pack.

    There’s little reason not to at least try Adventure Xpress and if you’re wary of freemium to begin with, this one is certainly worth checking out.

    It all sounds incredibly straightforward, but there really is something special here in Polyroll. And, well, it is no faint praise to say this about an iOS platformer: Polyroll is damn near effortless and a joy because of it.

    The kitsch is intact, and so is the light-hearted fun.

    Overall Battle Orbs is a good puzzle battler with simple elements of adventure that you can easily grab and leave for short periods of time anywhere you go.

    Bloodstroke is a terrific action game, and a great introduction to John Woo action on mobile.

    You won't be blown away by any of the auditory or visual elements in Boom Brigade 2, but in all honesty that's not what this game is about. Rather, Boom Brigade 2 focuses on a real-time strategy experience with loads of weapons and explosions. On this front, few people will end up unsatisfied.

    Simplicity isn't a dirty word, it's the core of Pixld's vocabulary.

    Galactic Nemesis generally feels quite good to play, with good explosions and lots of feedback when you hit something. Its modernized take on the wave-based shooter gives it plenty of character to stand out among a fairly competitive genre on iOS, and there's a pretty good amount of content and challenge for the price.

    As long as you’re not dangerously low on toilet paper, You Against Me should be a pretty safe bet.

    Beautifully presented, a little campy but oh-so-worth that walk down memory lane, Blood of the Zombies will not go amiss in your library of interactive iOS-based tales.

    Your mileage may vary with Steve Purcell's brand of absurdist humor, but "Ice Station Santa" is a solid port of a well-designed, compact adventure game.

    From its patches of vigorously shaking bushes to the impromptu destruction of random children’s precious pets, EvoCreo might leave you feeling a little nostalgic.

    The only thing I wasn't nuts about was being forced to play multiplayer when I happily would have battled against the computer AI endlessly, but being a natural-born hermit, even I realize I have to be brave and play with others. Sometimes.

    It's sleek, it's responsive, and although I would have liked to see a bit more concept-wise, it's worth playing.

    This is pretty much exactly how I feel about MUJO, its a nice light puzzle game that will steal time away from you without giving you even a suspicion that you are wrapped up in it.

    As with the previous games, Kingturn Underworld RPG is one of the best turn-based strategy experiences you'll find on iOS, and although the ground it treads is familiar, I'd still strongly recommend it to any fan of the genre.

    As sad as it sounds, it's rare these days to find a free-to-play game that offers a good balance between actual gameplay and having to pay for extras via freemium elements. For the most part, Zombiewood does a great job hitting that balance.

    100 Rogues is as much about exploration as it is about move-by-move action and employing a careful strategy.

    It's a wonderful nod of the cap to the man whose crazy visions inspired real world challenges to complete his work and become an adjective for creating a complex set of plans for something relatively simple.

    Do you hunger for something more interesting than the same old packed-lunch jump and collect game? If so, then you'll want to pass on Bloo Kid 2. Looking for a familiar taste to tide you over until something more exotic comes along? Then Bloo's your boy.

    There's also an ongoing hunt for the secret of the Rainbow Dragon, the one missing breed. I haven't found one yet. Will you?

    It's not very ambitious, but when a game gets as much right as this one does, it doesn't necessarily have to be.

    If you're tired of waiting for the next Infinity Blade, this might be just a good enough substitute.

    Sure, the controls may not be as approachable as its predecessor, and the game may be a bit simplistic for even an endless runner these days, but the implementation is solid, and the look and feel is a perfect carry-over from The Last Rocket.

    Minor gripe aside, you get a ton of bang for your buck with Mexiball, which has basically become synonymous with all of Donut Games' releases.

    Admittedly, there's not a lot to Shoot The Moon beyond its core premise, and if you have no interest in score chasing, you won't find much here beyond the brief gag of the moon being so obnoxious.

    Megastunt Mayhem just seems to get everything right and address most of the standard concerns that you may have about these sorts of games.
