    Homerun Battle 2, as you can see, makes me quite furious. And disappointed. And shocked.

    NFL Flick Quarterback is a fun arcade game, but I wish there was more. Right now, it's just an overpriced arcade game that doesn't exactly live up to its potential.

    Modern Combat 3 is absolutely brilliant, and I find myself continually playing the online multiplayer everyday. The single player is also quite robust and diverse, giving Modern Combat 3 a well-balanced gameplay between shooting bad guys and mini-games, such as shooting soldiers on an AC-130.

    Shadowgun is a bit more than a tech demo, but it's a lot less than an actual game.

    9mm
    9mm includes some improved voice-acting, great online multiplayer, an interesting storyline, and an overall action-packed adventure that is sure to entice third-person shooter fans. Just note that the game isn't for everyone, and I personally thought the amount of language in this game was really unnecessary.

    Absolutely stunning. This stands as one of my all-time favorite games for the iPad, considering the fact that there's so much to do and so little time.

    Swords and Soldiers could just be the next best castle defense game on the App Store. But the gameplay balancing really needs some tweaking as does some of the difficulty.

    Scribble Show is extremely limited in terms of replay value and gameplay, but the interesting drawing concept of the game is enough for me to not totally write this off as horrible.

    All of it is intriguing, interesting, and enjoyable; there's nothing like it on the App Store. It is a little repetitive though, and the graphics and animations really keep it back from being named one of the best on the App Store.

    Luxor is another solid marble shooter, but we still have yet to experience a marble shooter that has captured our hearts forever.

    Follows the footsteps of both Backbreaker Football and Backbreaker Football II with a fun and addictive gameplay, great animations, and great character models. The UI and other graphical elements do need some work, and the GameCenter needs a bit of fixing up to do.

    I love Pulse: Volume One for one reason, and that's because it's unique.

    Blimp HD is a solid, professional, and top-tier game that I'd be thrilled to see on any handheld gaming platform.

    On the whole, Blimp Attack is a good game, but it can get repetitive.

    Blade Master is not the App Store's next killer RPG; it just doesn't have the polish necessary to reach such lofty heights. But there's depth to be found, a lengthy quest to be had, and it nails the RPG bases.

    Ultimately, Black Space is a fair title, but not up to snuff with either Galaxy On Fire or Star Pagga. If you've already completed those titles and you're looking for something new, Black Space may be worth your time.

    Battle for Wesnoth is a solid turn-based strategy game that will continually be in development, a fact that I find some comfort in.

    Azkend HD looks beautiful from an artist's standpoint, but beneath the outside beauty is a not-so-beautiful inside. I found the gameplay to be a bit repetitive, and I would have liked the audio to be a bit more in sync and not all over the place.

    Axion's greatest flaws show its mobile roots. The virtual d-pad used for movement feels restricting and unresponsive, and to a lesser extent so do the attack buttons.

    Provides an engaging and entertaining experience for fans of the collectible card-game genre.

    It is ABSURD that a game costing $4.99 should be so bogged down by in-app purchase, and all but require you to spend yet more of your money on expendible items.

    On one hand, it's beautiful, and the swipe controls work great. It's a bargain at $0.99 including the fact that it's universal, and the game does have its shining moments. Then there's the other hand, which includes the fact that it doesn't have GameCenter achievements, has terrible tilt controls, and that the time constraint does bother at times.

    Minor shortcomings aside, Who's That Flying?! is a wonderfully fun game and an easy recommendation. I've been having a blast with it!

    An extremely fun game. I would go right on ahead and give it that coveted Must Have award, but there are those small, nitpicky annoyances in there that prevent me from doing so.

    Unrivaled in the App Store. There are no racing games like it, and if you're even remotely into driving, then Real Racing 2 HD is for you.

    It has gotten me hooked and playing for hours at a time-a feat that not many games can boast of-and quite honestly, I think this game is the best "bird" game out of the Big Three.

    It's a far shot from Zombieville and there are parts that need to be addressed. But other than that, the developer did an ingenious work with the replay value, a factor that plays into almost all successful iPhone games.

    Kami Retro deserves the critical praise it's been getting. It blends some quite familiar styles of gameplay into a distinctive little treat of a game, that's great for short sessions.

    The verdict: Land-A Panda is quite average. But the tantalizing price point and the cute graphics seem to balance out the average gameplay, along with the ton of content involved.

    A fantastic sandbox game and is one of my most played iPhone games.
