Oliver took on the CubeSieger challenge with his trusty iPhone 4S and came away really impressed with the virtual board game. With fairly deep gameplay and an impressive set of options and modes, CubeSieger is a decent board game that brings quite a bit of freshness to the tired old genre. Perhaps a little too easy to master, CubeSieger is nevertheless a great game to while away a few quiet hours in front of that Retina display.

So, we come to the first 90%+ rated game of the month, and it is a beauty.

I instantly fell in love with this beautiful platform game. With sublime visuals and ace gameplay, this inventive and playable platform game grabs you from the first moment you load the app up.

With plenty of levels to keep you playing and a lot of different gameplay elements, this is one of the best platform games you can buy on iPhone.

Reviewed 12th January, read full review here

This brilliant race/action game was only released for a few hours before being delayed for a week, but we managed to grab a copy, and how lucky we were. The innovative push controls are enough to win this game first place this month, but when you add almost console quality graphics, fast cop chases and superb mini games to the mix, then you have something that is dangerously close to a mobile classic. Racing around on any other touchscreen interface will never be the same again as you will be pining for Smash Cops before long. Brilliant, innovative fun.
