    Rest assured, the audience King of Dragon Pass is aimed at will lap it up. But it's even made a metal and machine guns guy like me respect the dragons and warlocks of ye olde. I'm sure to be back blasting aliens in the face with assault rifles soon, but for now I'm off to trade that bogey in a jar.

    Aside from the initial letdown for those expecting a deeper game, Jetpack Joyride is a delightfully challenging arcade romp that no iOS gamer should be without.

    Galaxy On Fire 2 is one of those games that rewards gamers the further they progress. It's a trend that has faded in recent years, and I fear that too many gamers may get bored before they experience the best that GOF2 has to offer.

    Despite the critism, leveled mainly at my a high hopes for the game, it deserves the high rating for the multi-player alone, with the single campaign earning a 4/5 if I had to score it separately.

    The controls are tight, and especially the levels that forces the pizza to balance on a skull across a pit of spikes takes some real focus. Personally I really would have liked a touch controls option to complement the usage of the accelerometer.

    More ingenious puzzles, an amazing level of freedom to creating solutions, and a great sense of replay-ability to better yourself. To me this is a true sequel, where you take everything that was great about the first game and then improve on it in almost every way.

    Magic 2013 is awesome. You can get a good chunk of the game for free to see if it is for you, and then unlock the rest for $9.99. It is literally the most fun I have ever had playing ag ame on my iPad, and it is almost flawless in execution. Seriously, just get the game now.

    Labyrinth 2 takes everything about the original Labyrinth game, and rockets it to a brand new level of quality and fun. If all the games on the App Store were this good, I wouldn't leave my house. Absolutely a must buy.

    I honestly can't recommend Mirrors Edge enough, if you have an iPad it in an absolute must own game. The only thing that keeps the game from being a 5 is that the campaign is short for the high price tag, and the story is weakly implemented.

    Sword & Poker gives me the same feeling that I get when I play PuzzleQuest. It has got that same "just one more battle, just one more" addictive flair.

    Its high price and short play-time may put some of you off, but any serious shooter fans out there will be doing themselves a disservice by passing on this. It's a blast… quite literally!

    Coin Drop! is one of those casual games that you got to have on your iOS device. Alongside Peggle, Tiny Wings and Cut the Rope it is both a perfect five minute game, and a great four hour marathon game.

    What LIMBO did well on other platforms, it replicates perfectly in the iOS version: simple controls, an eerie atmosphere and an experience that sticks in your mind.

    A true gem, and it is one of the few games that I as a parent can play with my kids and enjoy it with them. Multiple solutions, 70 challenging levels, great graphics and unparalleled online sharing functionality makes Casey's Contraptions a must buy for the iPad.

    The cute presentation is great, and gives further enjoyment.

    With smooth controls, impressive visuals, a huge variety of race modes to choose from, a good number of characters and tracks to unlock, and challenging AI in later levels, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing provides the best kart racing experience on the App Store.

    Rimelands : Hammer of Thor is an extremely enjoyable game due to keeping the challenge going, and I really hope to be able to continue the adventure. Not because I care about the story, but rather because the game mechanic works well.

    Infinity Blade 2 is bigger, bolder and better than before. It delivers an experience so finely tuned to the abilities of iOS, that it would be hard to replicate perfectly on any other 'current system'… It's the killer app that legitimises iOS as a gaming platform, and in a year where the competition has finally had to sit up and take stock.

    Everything you'd expect is here, including all the above game modes and voice chat. It may not have the deep 'One-billion-attachments-and-counting' customization of something like Modern Combat, but there's surely enough here to keep you ruling the skies for a heck of a long time.

    This is one of those games that you absolutely have to play with using headphones. The beats are all super clean and catchy, and they sound crappy on the iPhone's speakers.

    Gameplay is slick and simple, the music and sound effects are right on the mark too.

    Joe Danger Touch equals Rayman Jungle Run in offering a fantastic touch screen alternative to the console version of a game. The only difference being that I think that this touch version is better than the PSN and XBLA original. Its more engaging and very addictive. That 'one more go' urge cost me my dinner this evening!

    The game has some great new features, and it is still a hell of a fighting game. I just don't think there is enough new stuff for someone who owns the previous version to run out and get it right away.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Espgaluda 2. Sure, it's pretty mindless arcade fair, but the craziness to it all makes for an exciting ride.

    Girls Like Robots is a quirky seating arrangement, or rather relationship simulator set in a high school love drama. It is perhaps the most serious game to be published by adult swim. It does however have a sense of humour, and despite not having anything fart or die horribly it is a fun game. There aren't many games on the App Store with this kind of gameplay, and as such it certainly fills a gap between Joining Hands and Triple Town.

    The bottom line is that Sword & Poker 2 is a great game following the brilliant original closely in both gameplay and presentation.

    DrawRace 2 is my favourite game for iOS, and if I had to name a game that defines touch screen gaming this is it.

    It's one of those games that has the addictive factor that keeps you going back to it again and again for more, coupled with perfectly fitting visuals I find it hard to fault this game.
