    If you are looking for a strategy game that is easy to get into, and still have a lot of depth Total War Battles: Shogun comes highly recommended.

    The multiplayer in N.O.V.A. 3 is awesome. The game has some issues with connections every now and again, and there seems to be a scarcity of players in some of the modes. While it might not be perfect like the single player, it is pretty damn close.

    I've been converted! Don't expect me to start wearing Angry Birds T-Shirts all of a sudden, or going back and playing the original. But who knew that sticking an already strange pairing of birds and pigs, and launching them into an off-worldly environment, would turn me around. But, unfortunately for me, it has.

    The differences between Agricola the board game and Agricola the app are largely stylistic, but I much prefer the artistic rendering of the iOS version to the real-world board. There is also the benefit of avoiding the tedium involved with assembling the game, but I know there are gamers who enjoy setup nearly as much as play. For me, being able to jump in and out of a few rounds is a major benefit.

    Hunters Episode Two isn't really the sequel I had anticipated, and I view it as an episodic updated that brings a storymode. I still think that the strategic game play is great, and it is suspenseful watching the enemy takes it's turn walking into my traps. Bigger, better and a whole lot of more violent.

    Dungelot should be applauded for its lack of a secondary in-game currency, and the inability for the player to purchase coins for real-world money.

    Hector: Badge of Carnage Ep1 is definitely one of the best point and click adventures available. The humour is raw, rude and immature – bleeding perfect that is.

    To me, the game is definitely an improvement from Canabalt. The visuals are obviously way better, the music is pretty outstanding as well, and the gameplay is just simple but quite addictive.

    Block Fortress takes the Minecraft idea into a warzone with turrets, goblins and guns. It is a fresh idea executed really well.

    Yes, there is only one game mode, and there's nothing to unlock or achieve, but this is one of those games that drives you to play it without any quirky gimmics. It's insanely easy to pick up and play when you have literally a minute or two to spare, and the mysterious stats page really makes me wonder what I will discover if I can stay in the game for just a few more seconds than last time.

    The only negative is a slightly too easy difficulty, and perhaps this is why I get so much game for free.

    Silverfish is a well presented arcade avoid em' up that plays very well. If you are a fan of other games of the genre you will probably enjoy this quite a lot. If you are completely new to the genre it might seem both confusing, and too hard to grasp.

    The word 'design' is at the heart of why I love Bad Piggies, I honestly felt in many levels that I was not simply discovering the developers' solution. Rather, I felt that I had designed my own. The developers placed intelligent limits on the player's independence, but give the player enough room to feel ownership of their accomplishment.

    Inferno+ improves upon the original from Xbox Live, but on iOS it has much more competition than on console. The formula has been tried, tested, patented, and Inferno+ is certainly one of the better when it comes to execution.

    It's too early to claim the puzzle game of 2010, but any contender will have a challenge on their hands. Cogs takes it's place side by side with Zen Bound and iBlast Moki as examples of the best of the best out there right now.

    Polara is a fresh entry in the endless runner genre featuring a quick, and clever colour-shifting mechanic. Slow to start, but once you get to harder levels the game becomes hard to put away. At that point the lack of graphical flair doesn't matter, and I can only do one thing: keep running. And yes, die.

    Bad Hotel is a hard game, and there are some really harsh levels that demand quick decisions and movements. I found the more relaxed early levels to be more suitable to the colorful presentation, and quirky story.

    On the one hand you have a great thrill ride of a game, but on the other a disappointing core FPS experience due to poor AI and the almost on-rails linear feel.

    A short somewhat easy twin stick shooter. The cuteness factor combined with instant playability and varied levels still make it one of the most fun games to play in the genre.

    Great graphics, audio and gamelife paired with workable controls make for a great experience not to be missed.

    Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes missed out on a major opportunity with its iPad release. An otherwise fantastic puzzle RPG with decent story, CoH on the iPad lacks the level of polish of the original Nintendo DS release. I have come down hard on the quality of this port, but if you can't play CoH elsewhere don't miss the opportunity to enjoy it.

    iBomber Defense might not blow anyone away in terms of being new and creative, but it definitely shines as one of the most fun strategy games out there.

    A great racing game. It has a couple of minor flaws, but nothing gamebreaking. The social sharing hooks after every race can be a little annoying, and they delay the time getting to the next race. Still, slight problems aside, fans of racing games will enjoy the total package offered in Asphalt 7 Heat.

    As a JRPG style experience with some callbacks to Dungeons and Dragons, Knights of Pen and Paper excels. Just don't expect the full pen and paper experience.

    Uplink is a classic that works really well on the iPad. I still prefer playing it on a PC though, as it connects closer to the subject matter. At times the game feels a bit too real, and too serious and I really just want to disconnect. This is the main problem with this kind of game: it takes commitment, and can't be played casually.

    Dungeon Hunter 2 gets my full recommendation, and it is one of the best most playable games for 2010 in my opinion.

    Zombie Infection is a great action game from start to finish. Sure, the story is uninspired and the voice acting is terrible, but the core gameplay is some of the best fun I've had with an action title on iPhone.

    Pool Pro Online 3 then is really for multiplayer junkies only. The game does have a solid single player experience, and it is advised you check it out for a bit of practice before hitting online, but without a career mode and other options, it falls short of other single player pool games on the AppStore.
