    While all of Gameprom's pinball games are very good, War Pinball is definitely the cream of the crop. If you're already of fan of their previous work, this latest game is an easy purchase decision as it contains 3 fun new tables that make great use of their movie licenses.

    iOOTP Baseball 2014 is a niche game. For those who love numbers and micromanaging, you’ll be in heaven. For those wanting a game you “play” instead of command, you’ll be lost and most likely bored. The formula hasn’t changed drastically, but the inclusion of a player editor is a big step forward. I

    On every level, Little Things Forever hits all of the right notes: it is easy to pick up, fun to play alone or with a friend, simple yet challenging, and extremely replayable. Fan of the genre or skeptic, there are few games to be found on iOS that are as worth the price as this one.

    Some people may have lost their taste for pure tower defense, but for those of us with an appetite there is still meat on this dinosaur's bones.

    Starbase Orion has an "epic-feeling" as you strive to expand your empire across the galaxy. There's several facets to this game, as described above, but the interface pulls it all together nicely, so everything is easy to find.

    If you’re in the mood for a crafting freemium title, you can do a lot worse than checking out BuildIt.

    Bubbles in Paradise is a simple title, but well-executed and very enjoyable. I'm probably biased since I like to spell and learn new words.

    The only main downside to the game is that it only runs on iPad, so iPhone users may feel a bit overlooked at this point. However, for what its worth, it runs beautifully on the iPad, so clearly the work that has been put in to optimize it impeccably has paid off remarkably well.

    King Cashing certainly isn't for everyone, particularly if you're not a fan of RPGs or the slot-machine mechanic. However, for anyone that's remotely interested, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

    All of these elements come together really well in Axe in Face providing a simple concept with just enough depth and strategy to keep things interesting.

    Emberwind compares favorably against most modern platform games, so I'm surprised it hasn't received more attention. It looks, sounds and plays great on my iPad, so although some iOS ports are not particularly successful, this old platformer from the last millennium has definitely still got it.

    I've enjoyed and savored Numberlys, but like any film, I probably won't watch it again for a while, but it could be a recurring treat for a young child.

    This first half, taken on its own, is certainly lengthy enough to be worth the price, and what's here is certainly shined up very nicely.

    With 80 levels to play through plus the added replayability of obtaining gold medals for each one, Beyond Ynth will keep you busy for a long time.

    Packing in over 60 levels across 3 distinct planets, Monster Shooter is likely to hold on to your attention for quite a while.

    Even with its persisting flaws and somewhat unambitious nature when compared to 1862, Civil War: 1864 is still a nice plateful of comfort food.

    All you really need to do is pay attention. In return, you'll find a satisfying puzzle experience that leaves you tantalized for one more shot at building the perfect city.

    It's great fun, but without proper multiplayer integration it's probably not worth the higher asking price.

    In this outing, however, Detective Grimoire is going to have to settle for being an enjoyable, though altogether too simple, ride.

    While there's a lot of 2D endless runners out there, and a lot of good ones, Noodlecake's take on making quick-but-good games is a step above just about everyone else out there.

    An enjoyable experience, and one that does the adventure strategy genre proud.

    With an estimated 6-8 hours of gameplay, and side quests to keep you busy long after that, I can't help but recommend Ravensword.

    One of the smartest, coolest puzzle games around.

    There’s little to complain about with Shadow Blade. It’s a great action platformer with smooth controls and plenty of that Ninja goodness.

    A fun, easy going, RPG with a heavy coating of 80s nostalgia. With an upfront cost of "free", it's hard not to recommend it.

    An endless supply of constantly evolving environments, coupled with finely tuned jumping, will keep you coming back for a long time.

    Tobe & Friends' Hookshot Escape is a fine game and I say this with only a minimal amount of bias – a Dragon Punch-enabled character just makes things so much better.

    A fantastic little game that not only looks great, but also is a lot of fun.
