    A fast paced action shooter which fulfils a need for fans of classics such as Afterburner. It's not going to blow you away with originality, and there are a few flaws that may put you off. But, the intense action and rocking soundtrack can be an addictive formula, if you've got the skills!

    Food Processing is a fun little game demanding quick reactions, decisions and precision. It is a fun distraction, but the more you play the more it seems to lack.

    Sky Gnomes is a fun little racing title with an original concept at it's heart. But, I can't see people sinking a lot of time and effort into it, other than a quick diversion.

    Until the controls are fixed I would advise holding off on playing it. Why bother you may ask? Well, once it's fixed you'll find a highly polished game with great graphics and sound, as well as level design that is a fine balance between fun and frustration (as all platformers should be!)

    If you have played all of the Zenonias and can't wait for more then you've already installed the fifth one and enjoyed it. Casual fans may want to think twice before becoming too invested in this new release.

    The controls are ho-hum. They work ok, but the level of accuracy needed to successfully land on some of the floating platforms is sometimes a little too precise for the regular human thumb.

    A fun little dance game.

    With Crimson Gem Saga you get a linear, but polished RPG with some of the worst touch controls implemented in the menus I have ever experienced.

    Garage Inc. is a short, and at times enjoyable experience. For the most part it is a frustrating repetitious experience, and I will probably never play it again.

    Neo Nectaris could use a quickmatch style game mode as well, as right now all there are to play are various unrelated missions. You do not carry over your units from previous missions, nor is there much of a storyline.

    Tomena Sanner is a hilarious game that I wouldn't want to have missed out on playing. Once the levels have been beaten once there isn't that much content there to make me want to play it again.

    A competent puzzle game for those already familiar with the original.

    The only difference between ep4 and all it's predecessors is the story and locations, all the existing problems and the existing greatness follow over into this episode, so I am sure you can probably already guess what I'll be scoring this episode ...again.

    Pastry Panic has some moments of fun when it all clicks, but these are not that frequent. Most of the time it feels like I am waiting for the pace to pick up, only knowing that I will curse at the controls once it does. Pastry Panic will probably hook some players, but it failed to hook me and left me feeling a bit bored.

    I really wanted to love Button Brigade after I saw the really cheesy trailer, and initially I did. Then repetitive retries, cheap deaths and unclear menu options spoiled it somewhat. I still think it is a highly enjoyable puzzler that brings a lot of new ideas to the table.

    A good game. It has some issues but it has a lot of potential. In spite of some of the issues, I still think it is well worth taking a look at. There is a ton of gameplay and it is quite fun. WIth an update that fixes some of the issues it could be something special, but as it stands, it is a fun game that is hurt by some problems.

    Wild Blood leaves me both hungry for more, and cold for it at the same time. At it's core there is a great hack 'n slash experience, up there in fact with Gameloft's Hero of Sparta series, and at times even God of War (the definitive slasher). However, the constant badgering to spend more money through in-app-purchase leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

    So it's not perfect, but it is immaculately presented as well as self-aware.

    City Conquest is an interesting hybrid, one that feels like it could have used a little less tower defense in the mix.

    Sporos doesn’t do much new that I haven’t seen before, but it packs and presents the puzzles in a polished fashion. A great puzzler for relaxing in bed, or picking up for just a few minutes while waiting on the bus. Try the lite version first to get a feel for it.

    The Danny Elfman-esque music is a particular highlight, perfectly matching the theme and action.

    The game's art is fantastic and a highlight of the game, as are the simple accelerometer controls.

    Tetris Blitz feels like a quick cash grab more than it does a full game.

    Not the most powerful game in the universe. It is however a quite enjoyable romp through memory lane that can be enjoyed by both fans, and newcomers to the series.

    The price though is the main killer issue here. You just don't get enough nag for your buck, and in a crowded AppStore that's a big problem.

    There's a thin line between challenging and frustrating. Epic Game avoids being an Epic Fail because even though it may seem a little too hard at times, you'll be back to conquer it after you've sellotaped your hair back to your scalp (because you tore it out, see?)

    The touch controls could be more responsive, and the music leaves much to be desired. Other than that I was pleasantly surprised by Greedy Penguins.

    You see ‘Gun Bros 2’ isn’t exactly engrossing; it’s actually repetitive at best. There’s an initial piquing of interest as you hoist those oversized bits of kit around, putting colourful things out of their misery, but it’s not enough to keep you coming back long term.

    I hope we'll see more of Pigeon Squadron, as I feel there is nice little IP here which could break into other gameplay types and genres.

    If you are looking for a polished hidden object game you can't go wrong with Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey.
