App Review No. 3 Clash of Clans

Strong Points:
Great animations
Just enough resources - three to be exact
Great variety of units
Fight style is innovative
Upgrades for both units and buildings are aesthetically pleasing and have great stat upgrades
In game and social battles are good
Can get gems through clearing obstacles and completing achievements
Leagues are great and add an objective to the game
Clan system is good
Clan Wars are a great addition and add an objective to the game
Clan Levels are a good and help increase Clan loyalty as well as adding a further objective to the game and to Clans
The option to opt in and out of Clan Wars is a helpful addition 

Weak Points:
Can't message people directly
For people who don't spend a lot of real life money on the game it is very hard to get high on the trophy leader board
Upgrades can get too expensive and take too long very quickly
Can't find people unless you know their clan or they are your Game-Centre friend
Not enough units that lower players can access 
Clan Leader messaging is rubbish
Not enough ranks (although this is being updated so will hopefully change soon) - Clan Member, Elder, Co-Leader, Leader

PS: our clan is called Talmera so please join. Also, check out the Clash of Clans - Talmera Clan Page.

App Review No. 2 Kingdom Rush

Strong Points:
Lots of upgrades
Aesthetic changes for towers are great
Names of towers are good
Lots of great upgrades for towers
Lots of levels
Great replay value as there are two more ways to play each level
Boss fights are amazing
Enemies are good in name, looks and variable strengths
Heroes are good, (in both aesthetic and stat terms)
Lots of achievements to work towards
Side quests are great
Encyclopaedia contains great information

Weak Points:

Not enough free heroes
Not enough starter towers- archer, magic, artillery and barracks
Huge difficulty spikes- one level can be very difficult and then the next one being one of the easiest
Shop is poor
Quite a few out of level upgrades are poor
Story isn't brilliant

App Review No. 1 Battle Nations

Unfortunately, this game is no longer downloadable or playable

Strong Points:
Massive map
Long, humorous storyline
Loads of great units of different types and many stats
Loads of great and detailed buildings of different types
Great fight sequences
Great enemies
Regular updates
Promotion is great
Could be a computer game (and now is with the Steam support!)
The in-game characters are great and each have their own interesting personalities
Boss strikes are a great addition

Weak Points:
Loading times are too long 
Crashes a lot (As of update 3.0 this doesn't seem to be as much of a problem)
Most units and buildings aren't needed and are just for fun
Too many real money items and units
Too many resources (21)
Upgrading buildings isn't great (although adds a lot more content to the game) as you can only upgrade one building at a time
Most of the missions are the same - battling or collecting
Lots of lag on older devices (iPhone 4 and below)

Review No. 24 Rayman Legends Online Challenges App - Wii U eShop (12+)

Strong Points:
Brilliant daily and weekly challenges
Lots of leader-boards/statistics
Amazing characters
Great art style
Good fluid platforming
Murfy is really fun
It's free!

Weak Points:
Only three levels which are not challenges
Was only made as a peace offering with Wii U owners
Levels are quite slow
Normal characters are not as fun as Murfy
