    As difficult as LiquidSketch becomes later on, it remains an easy recommendation for puzzle fans.

    It may not fill the need for a traditional iOS football game, but football fans looking to explore the tactics behind the tackles really need to check this gem out.

    It's not going to rock your socks off with its style or innovation, but for those who enjoy playing with balls, iO has plenty to show you.

    It's super cute, it's fun, and it's free. Is there a better recipe for success?

    If you're into adventure games or choose-your-own-adventure gamebooks, you'll probably want to give this one a look.

    The presentation is top notch, there's plenty of content and it's the closest racer to Wipeout that I've played on iOS so far, which is certainly not a bad thing. If fast and frenetic racing is for you, look no further.

    More than any other music game I've played on a touch device, Reflec Beat + on iPad has me hooked.

    Three modes, touch controls that hop to at the slightest touch, and retro graphics. Doesn't sound like much, does it? Don't be fooled by appearances, Plasma-Sky is a solid addition to the ever-expanding galaxy of shmups available on the App Store.

    The simplicity of 7 Little Words' gameplay is a strength, but the whole package might be a bit too simple.

    It's great on the go, fun to play regardless, and a neat little break from the studio's more recent games. I recommend it.

    Hardboiled remains an interesting RPG that fills the Fallout-style strategy game void that makes a game like this rare to encounter on a mobile platform. If you love RPG's then Hardboiled is a must.

    Solely for diehard fans of Chaos Rings and with the first game currently on sale, you'll be better of starting there if you're just a curious passerby. It's not bad by any means, but it doesn't even pretend to offer anything different or new.

    Wizorb's control issues may sound dire, but in reality they're more annoying than game-breaking. Outside of that shortfall, Wizorb is an excellent puzzle title that does a great job integrating a classic brick-breaking experience with a fantastical 8-bit world.

    I can only imagine what people will start creating once people with actual musical talent grab hold of the app.

    2360: Battle for Cydonia does a great job in keeping its Mech combat fresh, be it through a huge range of interesting weapons and items to unlock, or its engaging mission objectives, and will undoubtedly be a staple on our devices for a while to come.

    Definitely one of the best virtual pet games I've played, largely in part due to how much it utilizes Plus+ for building relationships between dogs. It adds a completely unexpected level of depth and complexity to the game that will likely keep me playing it for quite some time.

    Fans of turn-based strategies from Military Madness to Mecho Wars owe it to themselves a treat like this. At $4.99, with the amount of game you're getting Rogue Planet is a no-brainer.

    Overall, Turbo Racing League is a very fun game.

    It's just flat-out an exceptional game, even a dozen years after the fact. The control difficulties will make for some annoying miscues, but it's as good as you can expect for this type of game on a touch screen.

    For now, players have over 100 levels and a way to create an infinite amount more to play locally solo or with friends for $1. If you want a fast-paced game that demands digital dexterity, Finger Tied is an easy recommendation.

    It’s obvious that fans of the series should check out Halo: Spartan Assault right away, but I think it’s one of the better dual-stick shooters to launch recently on the App Store even if you're not a Halo fan.

    It's a solid experience that I'm amused by, and am curious to see what they do with new levels, because the game explores so much of its concept as it is.

    At the end of the day, Neon Shadow could have done a lot more with its concept, but it's more than serviceable for any FPS fan.

    Both smart and fun, making it a worthy successor to the Cubis titles of old. It also fits in nicely amongst its modern peers, with Game Center support, lovely art, and a cheery soundtrack-the whole package when it comes to top-notch presentation.

    The graphics in Blades of Fury are great, and the ten different levels in the game are equally awesome.

    There's 5-star potential that Rust Bucket can still reach, but until then, this game has to settle for being merely very good, though it could be one of the best roguelikes on the App Store at some point.

    It’s a fun puzzle game that has a super simple and quite clever physics-based mechanic at its center, and it works well.

    Adventure To Fate: Battle Arena is an excellent sequel to the first game. It cuts some of the stuff that didn't work that well, doubles down on its strong points, and adds a bunch of new things for players to play around with.

    The game's multiplayer implementation is also a mixed bag: user friendly, but a bit limited at present, with no way to download other people's custom maps or create a game just for your friends.
