    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.

    t's not a replacement for Bust-A-Move, but just think of it as some free extra modes you can fire up now and then for something a little different.

    Despite its alien-like setting and curious environment, Biosis tells a story that just about everybody can relate to.

    LEX
    While I feel like LEX is the self-flagellation of word games, it can be a surprisingly pleasurable kind of pain.

    Angry Birds Epic is for the most part enjoyable, but it’s let down considerably by its endless IAPs and continual nagging.That said, it’s a great introduction to the RPG mechanics for those who want to dip their toes in a little and try something new.

    Depending on how the changes and hopeful improvements pan out, this could be a game worth revisiting down the road, though it's certainly an interesting pickup for roguelike fans as it is.
    • 71 Metascore

    It may not be the most memorable game on the market, but it certainly holds its own as an intriguing endless runner with a unique blend of all guns blazing platforming mayhem.

    Those with no special affection for the company can probably find better choices on the App Store in terms of music games, however.

    I’ll still recommend Oscura Second Shadow to anyone that loves the visuals from the screenshots or are looking for another platformer. However, it’s a far cry from being a mandatory experience.
    • 66 Metascore

    It's still a very fun game and one of the more accessible games in the 4X genre, and I'll never get tired of pretending everyone is their respective character from Clone High, but I can't confidently recommend this game to anyone who already has the first game, unless those graphics really mean a lot to you.

    I think there are plenty of better choices in the genre on iOS, but if you've exhausted the usual suspects and are looking for something else decent, Secret Files is worth checking out, warts and all.

    This has never been the strongest single-player KOF, so I'm not sure it's worth suffering the finicky controls if you're only going to play against that vile, cheating CPU.

    Revolution 60 would make a terrific animated movie, but as a game, I'm left a little cold by it.

    As long as you don't mind a short experience, The Great Prank War is consistently fun from start to finish.

    There's quite a bit of fun to be had from playing Crazy Taxi: City Rush. It's buried deep under its heavily-monetized metagame, full of energy systems, wait timers, and currency systems, in a way that is extremely labyrinthine, and I wish the energy system wasn't there at all, or at least had a way to buy out of it, but they far from ruin this game.
