Holiday Havoc by Underground Pixel

(4.7/5) Holiday Havoc for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is a holiday-themed arcade game featuring Santa Clause. Holiday Havoc has amazing retro-styled graphics and music, and enjoyable gameplay. You control Santa by tapping the screen where you want to launch a snowball to. You must use these snowballs to stop evil nutcrackers and teddy bears, while avoiding hitting any elves. The game is very fun, and will be great for your family to play during this Winter, and even during the other seasons too! Holiday Havoc will be available on December 1st for $0.99.

Minions by Villain LLC

(4.6/5) Minions by Villain LLC is an enjoyable first-person shooter with amazing graphics. You control a mad scientist whose minions are trying to gain power by overthrowing him. The main character is controlled with a virtual joystick, and shooting/aiming is managed by a virtual joystick on the opposite side of the movement stick. The graphics are in beautiful retina-display 3D, and the music is non-existent except for the main menu. Overall, Minions is a good FPS for people new to the genre. However, if you are a hardcore FPS player, I would pass. Minions is available on the App Store for $0.99

Genesis of War by Krehol Games

(4.2/5) Genesis of War for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is a side-scrolling shoot-em up game. You control a special forces unit that has been sent to the foreign planet Zeebos. The controls aren't the best I've seen on an iOS game, but they work they way they are supposed to. The graphics are okay, with non-animated sprites as the characters and enemies. However, the soundtrack is great, and makes the game more enjoyable. The gun upgrade system provides some help on the more difficult levels in the game. Genesis of War is a great time-waster. I found myself playing the game for a long time before stopping, and in my opinion, Genesis of War is worth the $1.99 asking price.
