    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.

    iStunt 2 is a fun casual arcade platforming trial game featuring wacky physics, and some mad air. The levels are generally well constructed, and I want to have more of them right now.

    Major Mayhem takes elements from an Operation Wolf style shooting gallery, Canabalt platforming, Gears of War duck-and-cover and Max Payne bullet time, and mixes it into an action-packed budget platformer that's hard to put down.

    Rogue Planet is a quality game with stellar production values thanks to the talented French Agharta Studio, solid gameplay and an involving story. The weak AI, linear maps and somewhat clunky controls draw the overall impression down.

    One part of me wanted something more radical, while the other yearned for more of the same. After completing the first chapter though, both these feelings dispersed and I was just left with a simple primal urge to punch a scientist in the face, collect each briefcase and do it all in the quickest time. So what if it is pretty much the same game as before… it's still awesome, and I'm hungry for more!

    At $0.99 ZombieSmash offers a lot of fun for your money. With funny animations, sounds and weapons the game excels in sheer bloodsoaked mayhem.

    Gameloft have put a lot of effort into not only creating a great and worthy game for just $6.99 that would look and play great on a console such as the Wii, but also delivered a game that fans of the original had hoped for.

    Certainly a welcome return, but it doesn't offer as nearly as much as I had hoped. Tiger Challenge and the Facebook integration are strong additions, and the tight controls, particularly on the iPad version are second to none. But, somehow I expected more from EA… more content, more courses, more tightly integrated commentary, and much more in the visuals department (and that's coming from someone who cherishes gameplay).

    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.

    The Package is an excellent puzzle game. But, be warned! it is very hard. Great for the hardcore puzzle heads out there, but it might scare some casual gamers off. If you love a challenge though, you won't be able to put it down.

    Heads Up! Hot Dogs is one of those games you can easily hand over to your kid, or even your grandma and watch them smirk and laugh.

    It has a weird control scheme that might turn people looking for a more traditional shooter off. However, if you like strategy games and shooters, this combination just might be for you. Honestly, while it's not perfect, Tiny Troopers is easily one of my favorite games I have ever played on iOS.

    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.

    Fast Five doesn't bring anything refreshingly new to racing games, ripping many elements from similar games before it. But, it is a highly polished and enjoyable racer and can hold its head high on the AppStore amongst other quality titles such as NFS: Hot Pursuit and the Asphalt series.

    What it lacks is not being extreme enough in the way out there department, and a proper soundtrack. Still it is a breath of fresh air for a genre that hasn't evolved much since Midway 1942, and Ikaruga.

    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.

    So far, with four stages, 20 levels per stage, and three cheeses per level, there is a TON to do, and many ways to improve your score.

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

    Swords and Soldiers doesn't take itself too seriously and makes for a perfect introduction for RTS first timers and a great casual experience for more veteran players.

    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 breath of fresh air in a tired genre on the app store, and I'm looking forward to future games Ubisoft has to offer for the iDevices.

    Pretty good. It does have a couple of problems in that the leaderboard system does not have a friends list, and the game, sometimes gets a little too frantic for touch controls.

    Instead of being a clone it brings a completely unique gameplay formula to the App Store, and it is a fun one at that. If you are into match three games or barricade defence games this title comes highly recommended.

    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.

    Despite this gripe, Star Marine: Infinite Ammo offers up a fun and action packed ride. It's a worthy addition to any iOS gamers' library, particularly if you yearn for those 16bit action-platformers from the Super Nintendo and SEGA MegaDrive days.

    A great pick up and play action shooter. It is really intense, and it takes a lot of focus to get anywhere fast.

    Rebuild is a fresh entry in the zombie genre letting you play from a top down city planning perspective. Random cities with a lot of variation give each play trough some new challenges. A part of me would still like to see a campaign mode, and I keep my fingers crossed for a Rebuild 2 in the future.

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