downloaded the third Kingdom Rush game and it's strangely joyless compared to the first two which were great.

Pacman 256 is amazing. It's Pac-man meets Crossy Road with a killscreen gimmick in there for the Pac-man geeks. :)

Yeah saw that, price is high but thats Square Enix for ya.

Must admit i enjoyed the first one on the Gameboy years back but never been keen on the others. Looked at the trailer and this does look good

Yeah, I'm a bit wary of buying any of their stuff since they basically abandoned Final Fantasy 2, even thought they're still selling it for £6.

Maybe I'll wait till after iOS 9 comes out before I drop £12 on it. At least it is universal.

Put a few hours in on Geometry Wars 3 - really liking it. Virtual twinsticks aren't perfect, but work OK.

From the makers of Crossy Road..

Pac-Man 256 (its free)
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pac-man ... ?mt=8&uo=4

Great graphics, crossy road mixed with Pacman, its really good.

Galactic Keep
https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/galacti ... ?mt=8&uo=4

This one surprises me. Looks a bit 'basic' but to me its like a classic Dungeons and Dragons type of game back in the early 80's when you just had the dice/board etc. Quite a lot of content to it, really enjoying this turn based RPG

Also another plug for Horizon Chase, this is great....

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/horizon ... 18252?mt=8

Please take a look, its like a great retro mash up of Out Run, plays very well

Lara Croft Go
https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/lara-cr ... ?mt=8&uo=4

Interesting one this, after the success of Hitman Go (Bit like a board game/strategy type of game) another similar game is now out featuring Lara Croft. Its pretty cool, looks great, nice to have something a bit different. Video of gameplay here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCZsnmE18TI

I've picked up, its really good
