    If you're interested in classic games, especially fantasy and/or strategy games, Lords of Midnight is a must-have. On the other hand, if you are an action gamer whose idea of "old school" is Goldeneye 64, you'll want to give this one a pass.

    As long as you don't mind that Mimpi Dreams is more about taking you on an audio-visual journey than putting your twitch skills to the test, you'll likely find the game to be worth your time and money.

    Eets Munchies is a satisfying and complete puzzle game, and given the included level editor you could spend a ton of time playing around in its world. I kind of wish some of the puzzles were a bit more inventive and a tad less remedial, but the latter arenas will have you satisfyingly scratching your head.

    Lumicon requires razor-sharp focus and nimble fingers, and there are plenty of strategies to suss out. If you think you and your vocabulary can handle it, you really ought to take a look.

    You really shouldn't pass Continuity 2 up if you're a puzzle-game fan. Screenshots don't do it justice – the minimalistic style works beautifully in motion-and both the music and sound effects are great.

    Five bucks is a bit steep for yet another re-release, but Crazy Taxi's iPhone-sized package presents the perfect time-killer while you're waiting for a table, bustling along on the commute to work, or looking for a fun pass-and-play style game with friends. Check it out.

    And check out the game's story. It's a delight and delivered just right.

    When you combine the large amount of depth on the gameplay side with a good narrative tale and a fairly decent control scheme, Time of Heroes is well worth a recommendation for any fan of strategic turn-based games.

    Hectic Space 2 is a rare game in that it looks like it doesn't amount to much, but it actually offers up a shooting experience on par with many big development studios.

    The levels are interesting, the controls are spot on, and the game uses adorable pixel art graphics and an awesome chiptune soundtrack.

    I'm pretty anxious to see where this goes. If you dig the retro, don't miss P1XL Party.

    An excellent hidden object game and is a great evolution of the original.

    A huge improvement over the original, and I just can't believe how hooked I've been on it since it came out. It's just pure, simplistic, fast-paced, arcade racing fun.

    Arachnadoodle is definitely a hidden gem on the App Store, combining many tried and true gameplay elements in to a very fun iPhone game that I highly recommend downloading.

    Still, minus any flaws and struggles, Dice Mage's core gameplay is interesting enough that you should download this.

    While some may complain about the lack of significant improvements, I'm willing to be satisfied with the fact that Gameloft has taken a successful series and preserved the single player campaign with small changes and improvements to an otherwise well-done formula.

    If you can deal with its shortcomings, SoulCalibur on iOS is actually an excellent port. It looks great, runs smoothly, controls as well as a fighting game can without buttons, and offers a decent amount of single player content to play through.

    Whether in your own crypt before you go to sleep, or at a family dinner with ghoulish relatives, Le Vamp is a charming, clever runner worth checking out. If your last flirtation with the genre was with something like Punch Quest [Free], this may just be one worth sinking your teeth into.

    You won’t want to miss out on Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork, especially if you’re a huge fan of arcade shooters with hilariously great jokes and some marvellous comic visuals. It's got a few flaws, but the good vastly outweighs the bad.

    Madcoaster doesn't stray too far from the endless runner formula, but it does do a good job executing most of the elements we love in the genre.

    Make no mistake, Solstice Arena isn't a full-blown MOBA. Still, I think there's enough here in the actual gameplay to overlook a some of the missing elements and quirky design decisions.

    Forge And Flame is quite good, especially considering its scope, but it's not quite great.

    Light the Flower has a cheerful, cartoon-inspired look, and it does present some replayability if you want to try to snag all the stars in every level or improve your time.

    It's refreshing to find a game that respects your intelligence, money, and time. All the better that it's good fun, too.

    There is a backdrop of familiarity to everything Dédale does, but it does a great job with mechanics most of us know by heart.

    That said, it’s free, and you’ve got nothing to lose by giving it a download and seeing if it clicks… err, swipes.

    If you enjoyed Heavy Metal Thunder, the sequel is a no-brainer purchase.

    Magazine Mogul serves to at least partially fulfill the wishes of people waiting for a sequel to Kairosoft's first breakout release. It's not as original as some of their recent titles like Kairobotica, but the familiarity isn't a bad thing in this case.

    The App Store definitely has its fair share of these stage-based affairs where you're trying to collect or earn three things, and if you're dead sick of those, TripTrap probably isn't going to be the one to change your mind. If, however, you like the sound of that gravity mechanic and aren't fully exhausted with the concept, you'll probably have a good time with the game

    There are a few things Frantic Shooter could do differently, most notably a world map, the addition of a light campaign, and unlockables that don't involve watching ads, but you get a lot of mileage out of the free download as-is, and the developers nailed the aiming feature.
