    Slamjet Stadium is made to be taken lightly, to be played for a laugh when you're with good friends. Not the sort of friends that feel strongly about winning or losing, though. It's all about how you play the game, and we're not talking about good sportsmanship.

    The great presentation, well-implemented control scheme and overall enjoyable gameplay simply lead to a game worth playing.

    It feels like the right length for the amount of story it aims to tell: much longer, and it would have meandered, and it would have felt rushed were it edited down.

    It's huge, varied, and lots of fun. If you have ever had a hankering for the high seas, this is a good place to start. Anchors aweigh!

    Slender Rising 2 is a worthy sequel, guaranteed to keep you on edge. Just make sure the lights are off, the blinds are drawn, and your nerves are ready.

    If you're prepared to deal with some of the old-school RPG trappings contained in Final Fantasy III, then you'll likely find it one of the best role-playing experiences in the App Store. But if you're mostly used to newer RPGs and the advancements that have come with them over the years, then Final Fantasy III may be too retro for your taste.

    Considering how many games on the App Store are essentially doing the same thing, Fetch is mostly unique, and pretty beautiful to boot. For a little less than the cost of a can of Dog Food, you will certainly get your money’s worth from Fetch, especially if you have young children, an aging puppy, or a soft spot for man’s best friend.

    A genuinely engaging card game with a surprising depth of strategy. Hopefully Ubisoft will be prompt in fixing the bugs, but the core game is intact in the meantime. Just go easy on the IAP.

    There’s something for a specific type of gamer here, one who enjoys something a tad different and…well, pretentious. If that sounds like you, well go ahead and give this a shot. Pretentious is another example of a game that is more of an experience than something you keep coming back to. It has its surprises, and left me hoping Keybol continues weaving the story they started.

    Quest of Dungeons is a very good roguelike and a fun game.

    If you're a fan of competitive leaderboards, and you're looking for a casual title to offer a few minutes of high intensive gameplay (or if you liked any of the Mr. titles), check out Mr. Oops!! as it certainly hits all the elements of a successful casual title.

    The graphics and gameplay are fantastic on the larger screen, and there's enough levels to keep you busy for a long time, not to mention achievements and leaderboards through Game Center.

    If you have a penchant for pillaging, swilling brew, beards, collecting loot, and cruising around in your mighty Viking ship, then take a look at Vikings Row!

    Yomi has a solid foundation to it, and any card game fanatic should dive in and give it a try.

    The happy music and precious hand drawn look of the game make it a pleasure to play, and excellent level design really rounds it all out.

    Sometimes, a laborious dance worthy of the grandmasters of chess and sometimes, a mad rush for control, Cabals is easy to grasp and surprisingly deep for something that can, at times, feel like a distilled version of the genre.

    The amount of content in the game is more than worth that asking price, but even if you don't feel the same way, you can still play the game, albeit with some slightly annoying ads. That's a pretty fair deal no matter how you slice it.

    Volt probably won't shock you all that much, but you can definitely get a good buzz going while you play through it.

    I'll fully admit that I'm a total sucker for anything that vaguely follows the Metroidvania formula. Something deep inside of my genetic code just loves navigating a maze-like mixture of corridors and platforms with more areas becoming unlocked as I collect new skills, weapons, and abilities. Robot Wants Kitty plays in to this perfectly, even integrating my love for cats.

    Dudeski is a fun arcade game, but it has some issues with identity. Is it an endless skier, or is it a level based game? That question doesn’t really matter much for the first couple of hours though, and once you start to ponder it you have already gotten your money´s worth of arcade skiing.

    It's big, meaty, fun, and crazy in the right way, and quite worthy of its legacy. It's a shame this particular release is a bit of a slap in the face, but if you haven't played this one yet, and you dig JRPGs, dragons, or both, jump in.

    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.
