    If you actually remember "retro games" from the first time round, when they were just "games" and we didn't know they were retro yet, then Boss Monster will surely rekindle some fond memories from your youth.

    It's not an RPG. There's no dungeon exploring. You go from A to B by moving left or right based on what you want to pick up next, and that's all. Here's the exact description that Invictus put on the App Store: "This ultimate pixel art RPG game brings you solid and pure dungeon crawling experience." No it doesn't, Invictus. It does not.

    Here we have the simple story of a hero trying to bring down the baddie told in such a classic cat-and-mouse way that Gunpowder will appeal to both fans of puzzle games and cartoons alike.

    Echo Dawn isn't going to knock your socks off, but if you're looking for an original JRPG-style game that offers the full package, it's a decent enough choice.

    It’s rare for a game to be as difficulty and frustrating for me and yet be so enjoyable to play. Chromaticon manages to strike that balance with me and offers a compelling enough experience to keep plowing along until I can eventually complete that next stage and move on.

    Criminel is disappointing, but to reiterate, the ending really redeems the whole experience.

    What we've got here is a well-designed, beautiful game with great controls.

    I really have to recommend Tiny Dangerous Dungeons to anyone who enjoys platformers or Metroidvanias

    Even the most diehard of gamebook fans is going to be hard-pressed to get much out of Gamebook: Pocket RPG.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying Lettercraft. It's fresh and fun. I don't see it being a hit for its multiplayer aspect, but as a single-player word game it's a lovely experience.

    If you're a fellow Star Wars fan, search your feelings you know it to be true, is there ever really a bad time to indulge in games paying homage to that galaxy far, far away?

    Escape From the Pyramid will scratch your itch if you're looking for another challenging runner that actually has an end. It could use a few tweaks control-wise and maybe a bit more content down the line, but for now it's a great way to unwind and watch all of the IAP-heavy runners pass you by.

    There is most certainly an audience for Rebus. After all, if there are people who can complete the New York Times' Saturday crossword in less than six minutes, then surely there are people who can look at the number 6135 and work out that the answer is "face". If you're one of those people then go ahead, download and enjoy. But for the rest of us, you'd better be ready to spend some cash on clues.

    If you have a few hours and an axe to grind against angry tortured spirits, embrace the panda. There is a chance you won't hate it, instead, like me, you might actually really enjoy it.

    To be honest, Proto Raider is one of those games you're likely to only play through once. You'll have a great time figuring out the trick to each level, collecting all the treasures, and seeing every stage.

    Strangely enough, I ended up enjoying this one a little more than the previous games, even while recognizing that the trick is starting to get old.

    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.

    It's not just unique, Breath of Light is pushing boundaries in terms of what a game can or should be and is definitely worth a look.

    This episode starts off with you having to remove a man's eye from its socket so that you can do a retinal scan to access a computer...with a darkly comic kicker. So yeah, this episode is a step down, if only because Episode 1 consisted of significantly less eyeball trauma.

    I definitely have to recommend Silly Sausage in Meat Land. It involves a stretchy sausage dog that can sniff its own butt, and it costs you nothing to download.

    This is pure arcade blasting action on your phone or tablet. But, for me, with its pernickety jumping challenges, Jump'N'Shoot Attack stops being fun and becomes tiresome very quickly.

    Stickman Rush is a bit of a one-trick pony: It looks wonderful, and little else.

    So, if you enjoy puzzle games, hidden object games, crime-solving games, or all of the above mixed in one, I have just the right number of dead bodies for you.

    Combining a respectful homage to its source material with a decent battle system and loads of unlockables, Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is the real deal in my book.

    If you enjoy relatively deep management games and have even a passing interest in science and space, then this is definitely a game you should check out.

    I see Heavenstrike Rivals as a mobile game that just happens to have connections in console gaming.

    Magenta Arcade is definitely a shoot 'em up worth checking out for anyone who appreciates the genre, or even has been looking for something that feels right on mobile.

    Mr Jump has a very specific appeal to it. I'm sure you can tell right away whether it's your thing or not.

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

    SwapQuest is a perfect example of a game with a simple premise that is executed so well and includes so many complementary layers that it becomes an experience far beyond that premise.
