    There's a lot to like about Red Nova; it sweats the little details, and whilst it may not last for long it's certainly good fun.

    Halcyon is not truly a must have game despite its intriguing air. Its gameplay does not yield more surprise after repeated play-throughs and so may grow tired quickly, even with the Game Center integration that is new in iOS 4.2. But what is here is fresh, engaging and fiercely challenging; if you're looking for something that's unlike many iPad games out there right now then you should get this one.

    Perfect Cell has some good ideas, but just suffers way too much from poor controls and some of the most cliched and repetitive level design I've ever set eyes on.

    Beyond these flaws, though, Disc Drivin' is easily one of the most addictive games I have ever played on iOS.

    Yes, I'd like to see some more content, but it's a good game nonetheless. If you like castle-destruction at all, be sure to give it a try.

    It's a somewhat no-frills, yet highly polished package.

    Very little skill is required to get through Castlevania Puzzle, just a burning desire to level your character up and get more weapons. Honestly, if you took the Match 3 aspect out of the game and just turned the battles into a standard turn based RPG affair, or even just simulated it all with no graphics, I would be much happier.

    Beyond the gameplay, the real reason to buy Plunderland is for the striking simplicity.

    Complaints aside, this is a great-looking game with a compelling storyline, good voice acting and intriguing puzzles. It may not be Monkey Island, but it certainly points the way for iPhone/iPad developers to embrace the best parts of old-school game design.

    Rimelands is the first turn based RPG that I didn't feel constrained by the controls or game speed. On top of that, there is a good story, there are good characters, good combat, good level designs, and good graphics.

    In a nutshell, if you love platform gaming and can't get enough of trying to beat the world in high score challenges, BloodRunner is probably the game for you.

    Despite the control flaws and the repeating levels, there is a world of good fun here. You can easily pick this up, fight a foe in a few minutes, and go back to work and still feel like you accomplished something.

    Chu Chu Rocket is a faithful port of the 2000 Dreamcast puzzle game to iOS, where players lay down arrows to guide mice into their rocket, and cats away from that same rocket.

    When you try to make a console game fit in your pocket, it can only end in tears.

    Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror is a fantastic game. The story feels as fresh and as entertaining as it did back in the day, and the slightly improved graphics are much appreciated. Many hours of entertaining storytelling lie ahead.

    Even with its relative ease and its short gameplay, it's hard not to like Scarlett and the Spark of Life.

    Fans of first person shooters, and especially the original N.O.V.A., will definitely not be disappointed with this fantastic sequel. With its painstaking amount of action and detail, N.O.V.A. 2 really does feel almost console worthy.

    Strategy purists will probably still lean towards Galcon due to its pure strategy focus, but I think the average gamer will appreciate the added abilities that Buccaneer Blitz grants you.

    If you are looking for a competent clone of current JRPGs on console, then you have come to the right place. Just don't expect it to push the envelope any further than is ultimately necessary. Sadly, the curse of developers choosing to "play it safe" may have just claimed another victim.

    Sonic Spinball is an iOS version of the Sega Genesis game that was a hybrid of pinball and traditional Sonic gameplay that holds up well to this day.

    Virtual City is well worth a purchase. It's a much friendlier version of SimCity and one that feels more enjoyable and less spreadsheet management- ish than other behemoth city management games.

    It's a huge amount of fun for the price and you'll find yourself easily spending hours trying to shave off a few precious milliseconds from your previous best time.

    I was disappointed that there was no multiplayer included in the game, but there's always room for new game modes in future updates. Even with no multiplayer, it is still one of the best all around boxing games in the App Store.

    It's fast, it's frantic, it's gorgeous to look at and it's unmissable for shooter fans.

    If you've been looking to get into the series but haven't tried it yet, or loved Super QuickHook's endless modes, this is a perfect pickup.

    It's a real pleasure to see an iPhone game that is well-crafted, that uses music and sound to create a distinct atmosphere and that plays as well offline as it does online. If Carcassonne is your first foray into Euro-gaming, you're sure to want more.

    Archetype feels just incomplete. What is here is fun, albeit very generic, but there just isn't much here.

    If you have the right device, and if you don't mind the price, then you must play Dodonpachi Resurrection.

    At the end of the day though, even with the lack of killer graphics, I can safely say that I spent more time with Game Dev Story in one sitting than any other game I've played this year.

    EA has done a solid job in assuring that Reckless Racing oozes with southern charm, while still delivering a solid, well-polished racing experience.
