    Still, with plenty to see, lots of replay value through the many paths you can take, some wonderful illustrations by Gary Chalk, and an intriguing new world, you could do a lot worse in the genre than Gun Dogs

    The story mode is long and throws enough novelty out in the form of equipment upgrades and new visual themes to keep things interesting, and the survival mode is a lot of fun

    One could certainly argue that there’s a far amount of monotony in other Assassin’s Creed titles as well, but at least those have large open worlds to provide some variety. That key is missing from Pirates and keeps it from being a better offering.

    If you enjoy difficult puzzle games, and haven’t yet tried this game, you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. The controls carry over well, it’s fun, and it’ll take you a while to get through all the chambers.

    While Feed Me Oil 2 is wrapped in a rather pretty package, it's still fundamentally the same game as it predecessor, and doesn't push the puzzle genre in any way. Having said that, if you loved the original, this one is a no-brainer.

    As an opening episode to a longer story arc, it does do a pretty good job of setting certain things in motion.

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

    Joe Danger Infinity has a terrific theme, sure to be fun for everyone who plays it, and will keep you coming back to beat your best and keep climbing the leaderboards.

    Doctor Who: Legacy might not be a love letter to the series, but it's clearly in love with it. If you share that loyalty, there's plenty of fun to be had with the game.

    It's a fun little game, and there are tons of tracks. It has a slightly different feel from many of the other racing games I've played on iOS thanks to its focus on giving an actual toy-like experience.

    Magnetized has the ability to excite and frustrate you in the same moment. With a slightly more polished design, it really could have been a must have puzzle title. But as it stands, hardcore puzzle fanatics will most likely get the most out of it.

    Marvel Run Jump Smash is far from the most sophisticated and addictive runner in the App Store, but comic-book fans looking for a colorful, fast-paced, and challenging experience should suit up.
    • 73 Metascore

    It's certainly a novel game, and if you can get into a score competition with your friends, you'll probably get a lot of mileage (centimeterage?) out of On The Line
    • 76 Metascore

    It starts off fairly slow but escalates quickly into a tactical nightmare, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on your view of puzzlers.

    Escape from Doom has enough depth to keep you raiding tombs for hours, even though you might not want to log those hours all at once.

    Coldfire Keep isn’t going to overthrow the likes of The Quest as the premier iOS dungeon crawler, however it still offers an experience worth playing through.

    Beyond Space is a fun shooter that will supply a couple of hours of shallow enjoyment. The linear story, lack of customization and multiplayer certainly don’t knock the current space shooter king of the throne. Still Beyond Space has the controls, and looks that make it worth considering if you are looking to blast lasers into enemies in space.

    While it may be too difficult for some, I enjoyed my time with Dual Survivor, as multitask-centric games don't come around too often -- just note that those of you who are willing to put in the time will definitely appreciate it a little more. I wish it had a bit more of a personality for sure, but the gameplay makes up for it and it's even more fun with a friend.

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

    It’s still a fun game and players that put forth the effort can get enjoyment out of the additions. However, it just didn’t fully do it for me like the original did.

    It's an impressive hour and a half, particularly for your eyes, but I'm not sure if that's going to be enough for most.

    On its sketch-book visuals alone, Roll Back Home accomplishes that and is worth checking out.

    That all said, Deadlings is challenging, entertaining, and oodles of fun.

    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.

    The graphics are great, the controls are nice, and there's a lot of content. The problem is that with the way things are set up right now, Flashout 2 feels like a free-to-play game, and not a particularly fair one at that.

    Assuming you aren’t too obsessed with the end-game or social aspects (and you don’t have an irrational hatred for freemium games) Boom Beach continues the showing seen in Clash of Clans. Whether it has enough staying power as its spiritual predecessor will depend greatly on the inevitable tweaks to the core gameplay. Meanwhile, it’s worth a shot.

    Ultimately, however, as a puzzle game fan, I find SideSwype scratches a very similar itch to Threes!, but doesn't do it quite so satisfactorily.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid attempt at an overly exhausted genre, but nothing exceptional, despite its fun factor.

    Last Inua is a decent experience, it just feels like it could have been a lot more than that.
    • 64 Metascore

    For a few bucks, it's definitely worth it for fans of the characters, but if you're not a fan, you might want to pass unless you're really jonesing for another side-scrolling action game or you want to reward the developer for their pay model.
