    Star Wars: Battle for Hoth

    Star Wars fans will drop the cash on it regardless, but there’s enough here to satisfy the urges of serious tower defence players too. A quick history lesson for those who flunked Star Wars school: during the Galactic Civil... more

    RAGE: Mutant Bash TV

    Rage might well be short, shallow, and shoddy in the control department, but it's still well worth the price of admission. With Rage HD, John Carmack has rolled up his sleeves, placed a huge bicep on the App Store table and... more

    Driver

    Driver struggles at times to work here as well as it did on a games console, but it's still an excellent port that has managed to retain the majority of what made it so much fun back in the day. I've got fond memories of... more

    Ronnie O'Sullivan's Snooker

    At its current reduced price of only 59p Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker is an absolute steal. If you're a fan of the green baize, you're going to lap this up. While snooker isn't nearly as popular as it was during its heyday of... more

    Football Manager Handheld 2010

    It's not perfect and for some might be too expensive, but if you enjoy trying to take your team to league and cup glory, hours and hours of fun (or misery) are to be had here. How much depth do you want from Football Manager... more

    Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge

    Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge is more of an average 2-disc edition than a deluxe Criterion version. Monkey Island 2 is one of the greatest games of all time: if there were a canon for video games, it... more

    Osmos

    A very reasonable £1.79 will get you 72 levels split across two game modes - odyssey and arcade - which is more than several hours worth of 'zoned out' gameplay. Let's put video games to one side for a minute and talk psychology,... more

    Infinity Blade

    Buy it safe in the knowledge that you're not only getting the best looking game on the App Store, but a fantastic little action RPG in its own right. I remember moaning about how dull Infinity Blade seemed after seeing it... more

    Labyrinth 2

    This is a top-drawer iDevice game that feels perfectly at home on Apple's touch screen, tilt-enabled handhelds. At just £2.99 it's an absolute steal. It takes a lot to make me swear, but a devilish video game will usually... more

    Helsing's Fire

    Helsing's Fire has inventive levels and immediate charm, making it an instant iPhone classic you'd be a fool not to pick up post haste. Dracula's never been one to have a large amount of light in his dastardly castle, and... more

    Dodonpachi Resurrection

    It might be ten times more expensive than the average App Store game, but it's also a shining example of what a good developer and Apple's shiny iDevices can achieve if they work together. Sometimes the unlikeliest success... more

    Game Dev Story

    Soon all you'll care about is getting Game of the Year over those damned Circle Enix guys and spending five consecutive hours trying to get a decent score. That guy who runs the game studio that specialises in golf RPGs?... more
