    However, in the great scheme of things there's little to complain about in this excellent sequel to a great game.

    It's a journey worth taking, as much as it exposes the horrors of our depths.

    Bardbarian is a game that just feels right in a lot of ways, and with a low price on top of that, you really need to pick it up, post haste.

    Battle of the Bulge is a must-have for anyone with an interest in historical wargaming. It's only flaws are limited single-player replayability and the fact that it is so easy to start playing that some players may jump in expecting a Risk-like game, only to become frustrated when the game's nuances assert themselves.

    Incoboto is elegant and subdued, unafraid to juxtapose the vastness of the cosmos and the terror of inevitable burning out with the intimacy and charm of a small boy befriending a star.

    What it lacks in difficulty it makes up for in sheer mindless entertainment, which is arguably what solitaire does best.

    It works because Out There gets the threat of death right.

    Super Mole Escape knows what it does well, and exploits it to its fullest.

    My time with Shadowrun Returns has certainly turned me into a fan of this game, despite its current level of glitchiness.

    Robo Surf is lighthearted and fun, with enough hooks to turn it from a momentary distraction to one of my new favorites.

    All of its pieces fit snug and everything you do contributes to a whole package. It's also one of its most wide-reaching games, combining social and sim aspects from all over the place.

    A world with gorgeous, complex puzzle games like this at the forefront is a world I'd be happy to live in.

    So despite the crushing sense of familiarity, Zombie Carnaval is a game you really need to own. Running with a pack, devouring humans to add them to your crew-this is good stuff.

    No matter how different the results, every game feels pretty much the same, and that really cripples its long-term appeal.

    The extra episodes may seem a bit steep, but relative to the size and cost of the initial game, they're more like built-in sequels, and there's certainly enough included in the initial package to keep you entertained for a while.

    It's hitting all the Ace Attorney buttons, with a huge cast of crazy characters, engaging cases with lots of plot twists, and a funny, well-written localization propping it all up. I

    I can't help but feel that if this was made by any other developer, we really wouldn't care that much.

    Difficulty aside, the only serious issue I've had with Bike Baron is the lack of a quick level reset.

    This not your average, micro-stage mobile game. Thankfully, only a handful of stages made me wish there were checkpoints.

    When the four-book work is finished, Sorcery! is likely to be one heck of an impressive gamebook experience. Inkle's groundwork is fantastic, making for an unusually vibrant piece of interactive fiction. It's a bit like a prologue at the moment, but every journey has to start somewhere. This one gets off on the right foot.

    The whole game is lovingly infused with retro style, from its pixel art to its music and sound, and that aesthetic carries over to the gameplay.

    Turbo Dismount is a full fledged desktop sandbox game that feels like it had to shed a few pounds to fit into the iOS format.

    This is my favorite racing game available for the iPhone. And the replay value is significant. Anyone who enjoys a solid, well-rounded racer - and offroad racing in particular - would be a fool to let 2XL Offroad Racing pass them by.

    Great Little War Game is the kind of game you can really sink your teeth into, which is rare enough. So I'm delighted to discover that it's also rich in features, good looking and full of humor.

    It's a good title, but its lack of innovation in anything except its content delivery keeps it from being great.

    If you've got the patience to stick it out, though, Dice Soccer will give you more content than you can handle.

    There's also an ongoing hunt for the secret of the Rainbow Dragon, the one missing breed. I haven't found one yet. Will you?

    Chocohero is certainly not the only game of its type out there, but it's definitely one of the best designed. In addition to tight controls and well-designed levels, the art style and music are perfectly complementary (and, of course, super-adorable).

    A complete package, brought together by Gage's trademark use of cheerful colors, simple patterns and elegant typography.

    Visually speaking, Baseball Superstars 2012 is definitely the best-looking of the pack.
