Destructopus by GlitchSoft

(3.25/5) Destructopus is a game for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. In it, you are a giant, mutated octopus with one eye sleeping beneath the ground. You are awoken by oil drillers, and emerge to discover a polluted, nature-hating land. You rampage through the city while dodging TONS of bullets, and rescue endangered animals at the end of each level. The first few levels are a piece of cake, but after that, the controls get annoying, the amount of things in the background distract, and the number of things to dodge becomes too large. Even though the beautiful graphics and awesome music make up for most of its faults, an update wouldn't hurt.This game is currently $1.99. It's worth checking out, but there are better games out there. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/destructopus/id414603435?mt=8

Coin Drop by Full Fat Games

(4.75/5) Coin Drop by Full Fat Games is a fun, adorable little game. You are a coin, trying to save the pink girl coins from the evil blue thug coins. You bounce around the box, hitting pegs and other obstacles. The game is very fun and addictive, with cute cartoony graphics, which will appeal to children, but the game is still challenging enough for adults. However, some of the thugs you must catch are placed in hard-to-reach places, which can create frustration. The game currently has four worlds with fifteen levels in each world. It will be updated with more levels though, so it will slowly become a huge game. It's very fun, and worth the $0.99 it costs. http://itunes.apple.com/app/coin-drop/id396119687?mt=8

Squid Drop by Nor Eagle

(3/5) Squid Drop for the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad is a fun little game, with cute characters, but one thing ruins it. If you are on a second generation device (like me), the game will crash after almost every time playing, and you end up spending more time loading up the app than actually playing the game. But besides that, Squid Drop is a fun game with cute characters and a good "Finger-Slide" Control scheme. This game is great for fans of the popular game falldown, or casual gamers in general. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/squid-drop/id423787556?mt=8

Air Penguin by Gamevil, INC.

(5/5) Air Penguin for the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad is a great little tilting game. You play as a penguin who's family was taken away due to the effects of global climate change. You must now tilt to bounce off of icebergs, while avoiding sharks, swordfishes, broken platforms, and more. There is game center leaderboards and achievements, so you can see how you compare to the rest of the world. The game is very fun and cute, with short, cartoony-style cutscenes, but don't be decieved-some of the levels can be very hard to defeat. There are two modes, Story and Survival. The game has slick, smooth graphics, and never crashes. Air Penguin is a great value for the low price of $0.99 http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/air-penguin/id425609130?mt=8

Zenonia 2: The Lost Memories By Gamevil Inc.

(4/5) Zenonia 2 is an action RPG that will keep you going for hours. The characters have personality, and different strengths. There are four different classes to choose from, each with minor plot differences. You can choose from a melee warrior (Daza), a long-range shooter (Ecne), a melee paladin (Lu), and a long-range magician (Morpice). The game is packed with over 40 hours of gameplay, and fully customizable costume sets. However, the app occasionally crashes, which can prove to be annoying, for example, when you are about to defeat a boss. This game is a steal at the cheap price of $2.99, so get it now before the price goes up!      http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zenonia-2/id364597916?mt=8
