    There's so much that could have been amazing about Heroki. It just falls so short, and it genuinely makes me sad. It pains me for so many reasons to say bad things about Heroki because of what the game could potentially stand for. But as a game? It's just not great.

    It's not a bad game, and I think that you again get quite a lot of gameplay for your money here, but I'd caution any prospective buyer to consider if that's really what they're looking for. It's not quite the game that the first Agarest was, so I'd recommend that one first, and after that, if you truly want more, you'll likely enjoy what Zero has to offer.

    Even if you aren't a zombie fan, turn-based and puzzle enthusiasts should give Dead Eyes a shot. An expansion of sorts for a few bucks would do wonders in terms of its longevity, but for now, it's a decently-packed undead romp.

    Despite the relatively light amount of content, I still think FlyBoy does a pretty good job creating a well-rounded 'quickie' game. There's enough strategy within each of the levels in order to keep you coming back, as well as all the usual competitive features to make sure that you aren't simply playing against yourself.

    Overall, if you're a fan of mini-game collections and you're looking for a new fix, Flick Champions does a solid job of satisfying that need.

    The difficulty levels are amateur and professional, although let's get serious, there's no professionals; surely no-one is getting paid to chain surf out there! (…Are they?) Although, next time you see a chain fence, I bet some of you will be tempted.

    Back to Bed has a relatively small target audience with decisions that were made to emphasize visuals over gameplay, but for that audience there is a lot of appeal.

    With very little in the way of IAP and a "one more round" feel, Call of Commander is really easy to get lost with.

    Maybe with a fully featured story, a world map, and multiple paths to pursue, Combo Queen could have been a really cool action-RPG hybrid. Instead it's a rather limited rhythm title that isn't going to appeal to everyone -- especially if you don't have the patience to painstakingly learn the ins and outs of the system.

    Given how many iOS golf games work from a side perspective, MiniGolf's overhead view is almost as refreshing as it is nostalgic.

    Movie tie-in's can sometimes be terrible games, rushed out to promote a movie, but this near-future robotic boxing game is reasonable– Mostly because robots fighting makes for a decent game.

    On the whole, though, Crazy Bomber is a decent game, and it will be much better if online multiplayer is added. If you're craving Bomberman-style play, you won't go wrong picking it up.

    Hyper Snake is great for a quick game, has heaps of replay value and is quite challenging. However it's crying out for Game Center, which the developers plan to add.

    The gameplay is a little too simplistic for serious gamers, but it can still be fairly entertaining at times.

    After beating it once, I feel little imperative to do so again, an odd turn of circumstances given that War on Terror was derived from a board game.

    I enjoyed the majority of my time with Versus - The Lost Ones, but a weak beginning and an ending that satisfies little of one's curiosity definitely hurt the game overall.

    Talking with some bicycle enthusiasts (and checking the forums), it seems that getting to equip real brands and seeing the suspension rotate to accurately reflect the frame it's in are a huge boon to its overall value. For those of us that aren’t cycling fanatics, though, there’s still a great joy to be found in Downhill Supreme.

    Some parts of Blocky Raider are a little too similar to Crossy Road, but for the most part, it's an enjoyable game that has a lot going for it. Having said that, I fully expect to go back to my Crossy addiction in a week.

    Sons Of Uruzime is just traditional enough that it likely won't appeal to those who aren't already into gamebooks, but if you do enjoy them, this is worth picking up and taking a few cracks at.

    Beast Bound is an okay game made slightly better by infusing itself with an infectious amount of enthusiasm.

    It's unusual to see such hand-holding near the end of a game. Still, Spacelings kept my interest, right to the final levels, with it's tractor-beaming action.

    If you have a child or an open mind for a edutainment, Zoombinis is worth checking out -- just know that time doesn't heal all wounds.

    At the moment, it's a fun clone of Clash of Clans with great fanservice and idiotic AI. It has ever-increasing timers, premium currency, requires an online connection, and a bunch of other monetization tricks, just like CoC. If you hate that game, you're not going to have more fun here, but if you enjoy it and you like Star Wars, you're probably going to have a good time here in spite of its flaws.

    As an inexpensive way to entertain yourself while chatting with a friend, Word Chat will more than do the job.

    I suspect many people will be happy to see that LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham has reverted back to the old style, and I think I'll go ahead and agree that it was probably the right call for this game.

    If you have an iCade, I think this set is definitely worth it for the first two games alone, but otherwise, this one's really just for diehard Double Dragon fans. Everyone else should just celebrate by playing one of the hundreds of beat-em-up games on the App Store that only exist because Double Dragon blazed a trail more than 25 years ago.

    It's unfortunate that a crossover that seemed so odd when it was announced ended up being so very ordinary.

    PixWing is utterly gorgeous, and the production values are fantastic. Seriously, I fell in love with the look of this game from the first screenshot I saw, and the fact that you get to dig in and explore the world is an amazing experience.
