    "I kinda like isometric games. Not sure what it is, but having the camera positioned above makes the game a but more interesting to me. It's also a great thing for mobile gaming. Textures aren't required to be high detail, which means less resources your phone is required to use. Reckless Racing 3 is kinda like destruction derby, with a diablo camera. It's a neat and enjoyable little game. And it's below 3 dollars which is a nice plus."

    "I have been working a lot lately over the past few weeks and I wanted to make sure I spend time in the evening with my twin girls. I was looking for something stimulating and inspiring to share with them while I hangout with them in the evening for a few hours. They are a big fan of Crossy Road, a frogger style game, in which your character has to cross the road without getting hit. This amazing game allows players to constantly improve their skills and timing abilities by navigating tricky and unforeseen obstacles as advancing levels become more and more challenging. This keeps them occupied while I have to go grocery shopping and make dinner. My daughters absolutely loves playing Crossy Road and learning new tips and strategies. This video game is amazing, thank you!!"

    "Fire Emblem Heroes is a well-designed game for the iPhone or an iPad. The graphics are really nice and there are so many different modes. You can do a lot of different things like training, duels, and battles, but there's so much that it's a little intimidating to me. I kind of wish I was more into the battles because I don't feel like I get as much out of it as I could."

    Play pinball in this simplistic but beautifully designed approach to classic pinball: just tap left or right to activate the flippers in more than 100 levels.

    "Such an interesting little game. I've never been a huge fan of pinball, but I wanted to pass the time after work waiting for my ride and this was just the game to do so. The colors of the game are very vivid and pop out to you when viewing from such a top down view. The view is interesting because it's like the traditional view, but because the tables are all unique it is almost like a whole new experience each level you play. Really recommend it to those retro pinball lovers, and people who want to try a nice twist on a classic game!"
