Game: Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary Edition | Platform: iOS | Publisher: Rockstar | Developer: Rockstar North | Price: £2.99/$4.99

The daddy of the sandbox genre is ten years old and Rockstar’s celebrating that fact by releasing it on iPhone. We’ve played it on iPhone 4S and it’s an incredible conversion, looking ultra-sharp and running more smoothly than we could have dreamt. Mobile gaming has an extremely bright future ahead of it.

Sonic CD | XBLA/PS3/iOS | Price: 400 MS Points, PSN £3.49/$4.99, iOS £1.49/$2.99

The Sonic game that nobody played? Might as well be be. This is effectively the ‘other’ Sonic 2, made at the same time but by a team in Japan while Yuji Naka worked in the US. It’s brilliant, especially on iOS where it’s nothing short of phenomenal, as our review (opens in new tab) will attest.
