The First Tree
There’s a real sense of wonder to exploring the game’s rolling fields, which helps to offset the inherent simplicity of the gameplay. This one gives you the feels.
Space Marshals 3
Returning is the excellent drag and release shooting system that makes each tense encounter feels suitably weighty and clinical. Also returning is the distinctive sci-fi western sensibility that gave the franchise such a distinct flavour.

Fruit Ninja 2
Genre: Action, Casual

Genre: Action, RPG, Simulation
One part of the game sees you scouring randomised dungeons, looting and slashing like a particularly weighty and challenging top-down Zelda. The other has you flogging your wares in your little shop, seeking to extract the best price possible and spending your earnings on crafting better gear.
Add in a bunch of neat modifiers, enemy types, and palette swaps, and you have a compelling pocket adventure with a fun arcadey flourish.
