Monster Trucks Never Quite Gets into Gear

Flight Control is a Complete Joy to Play
Flight Control - There is no greater joy than playing a simple game that knows and relishes the fact that it’s a simple game.
H.E.X. is in the Mix If You Like Match-Up Games
p13development's H.E.X. is 60 percent off at the moment (which makes it $0.99) and that's a smart move on the part of the developer. H.E.X. is a match-up game and the shelves in the App Store are packed with the genre. As I've noted before, it's really hard to break out of the same old thing.
Who Has The Biggest Brain? Sizes Up Facebook Friends

iYacht Yahtzee Dice Game

Mafia Games Round Up: Who is the iPhone Don?
Due to popular demand, we’re devoting a feature here that gives you the skinny on many of the Mafia games that have infiltrated the App Store. The jump in popularity for this emerging style of game can largely be traced to its MySpace/Facebook beginnings with Mob Wars leading the way.
Dapple Mixes Up the Match-Three Genre
If you've played Aurora Feint, Bejeweled or other games where you line up three or four similar objects to eliminate them, then you already have a good idea of what Streaming Colour Studios' Dapple is about. Dapple comes with a twist though.

Easter Words is a Feel-Good Family Game
