    Le Havre is the most complete board game upon launch offering single player, pass and play and online multiplayer straight out of the box. It should have been cooked for a bit more to clean up the interface a bit, and given it retina resolution. Still it is a great adaption of the physical board game well worth diving into.

    If you enjoy the Virtual Villagers games this is a nice addition to the slower paced time management games.

    Getting hung up on a puzzle right before lecture starts, missing a chunk of dialogue in front of the television, and trying to figure out what the heck I was doing when I last saved so that I can resume my story are all things that really conflict with how I play my iPhone games.

    Greed Corp is a great multiplayer experience that allows for quite quick matches. The single player campaign is good as well with an AI that at times shreds me to pieces. What isn't that good is the lack of graphical polish, and the quite clumsy controls. Still it is a highly recommendable game that allows for some cool strategies.

    Little Inferno shines softly with originality and cuteness but never moves beyond this. As a more luxurious variation of Doodle God ($ 0,99), the game falls short and is not worth the hefty price tag. With all the tapping at coins and waiting, I can’t help but wonder: could Little Inferno have turned out better as a freemium game?

    Time Surfer is a good game within its genre, one that at least on the surface tries to resolve an issue with runner type games, and even make it a feature.

    A fun little casual game that can be frustratingly hard at times.

    Even with these smart decisions on the part of the publisher (or possibly decisions made at the behest of the developer), and the quality of the ports, I can't say that the Raiden games hold up against shooters tailored more towards iOS. Even with the faster touch controls enabled, I found that my hand was getting in the way far too often, and that I didn't have the same level of immersion that I would have with a physical joystick.

    Funky Smugglers is a good game with a slick look and enjoyable bite-sized gameplay which even though it gets a little repetitive, is perfect for those moments when you're bored and stuck in a queue. An airport queue perhaps.

    Sprinkle brings something new with it's water physics, but it's comparatively small amount of levels, in-app purchases and unexciting soundtrack leaves it to fall short of being something great.

    Transformers G1: Awakening is a quality title paying homage to one of the coolest animated series from my youth. Highlights are the graphics, the camp story and the music.

    Controls aside, it's actually an enjoyable romp as you figure out the best way round each maze, trying to avoid the increasingly difficult and sadistic obstacles with only a bouncy ball (which can at least be upgraded) to aid you. It's about timing, and not a small bit of luck too.

    Virtual City is fun, but not without it's faults. If you like economy games, you will enjoy Virtual City, however it will get boring for some players rather quickly, due to it's simplistic style.

    The Sims 3 Ambitions is the most polished experience, and definitely recommended for old time fans for the series for both PC and iPhone.

    The level of interaction required is minimal when compared to the vast array of options the game provides, and there is little excitement outside of watching your matches play out seconds at a time.

    A fun puzzle game that looks good, and plays well. Too bad that it is a bit easy, and can be completed within an hour and a half.

    This game can get tough, but like many physics games, a lot of the gameplay is dependent on luck.

    A fun psychedelic diversion that works well as a casual game for shorter moments. Trying to play longer sessions is taxing because of the randomness of awesome to poor shots, and the weak level progression.

    Sleepwalker's Journey is a nice puzzle adventure for those looking for a game where you have to constantly solve obstacle puzzles on your feet. Moonboy moves about much like a lemming, but is perhaps even more fragile.

    If you can't get enough old-school RPGs, Avernum is indeed what you are looking for. Even in light of my negative experiences with the game from a technical perspective, I cannot deny the satisfying tactical depth and rewarding RPG hooks built into Avernum's core.

    Its scale and story must have been significantly more meaningful at the time of its release. I can't help but compare it to everything I have played since that time. Those of you who have fond memories of the game may want to bring out the better controlling PS2 version, or wait for the crippling bug to be fixed in the iOS version.

    GoatUp manages to be a unique experience despite being just another Doodle Jump knockoff. Who could have imagined that kissing goats, grazing the land and jumping upwards could be so much fun.

    Dungeon Raid manages to capture the essence of both rogue like dungeon crawling, and addictive match 3 in a easily accessible formula.

    Diggin' Dogs borrows the perspective, and some of the control mechanics from the green crocodile from Disney, but in the end it is a completely unique experience. If you are looking for a challenging puzzler with a lot of game time, and cute dogs you can't go wrong with Diggin' Dogs.

    Joining Hands is a casual puzzle game with loads of levels, good presentation and excellent controls.

    The sound is a little disappointing though. You'd think a BMX game created by a real BMX biker would include a soundtrack that was a bit more…I don't know, 'With It' (is that the right term? I lost touch with the cool kids a while back). What's here sounds like something you'd find in a cutesy platformer with fluffy hybrid animals jumping on each others heads.

    The soundtrack is also pretty cool and epic sounding. A little cut-and-paste with the production, but nice to listen to.

    Crumble Zone doesn't have aspirations to be anything more than a race to the top of the leaderboards, but at that it does pretty well. A few nagging control issues and a lack of variety don't stop this game from being a good way to spend a few minutes between chores.

    Don't get me wrong it is a well made game, but for me all the elements don't quite gel together for a great game.

    Castlevania: Encore of the night tries to a lot of interesting things, but succeeds at none of them. Even hard-core Castlevania fans will have a hard time making it through this one.
