It can be difficult to pick out the cream of the crop amidst the barrage of new iPhone and iPad games, but we’ve got you covered with our weekly look at the most notable new releases. This week, we have a promising-looking X-Men action game, the charming two-player dance experience Bounden, and even a MacGyver game in the mix. Give these a good look and then check back next week for more.
It's a clever idea, using physical figures or toys to interact with the iPad's touchscreen, but much of the time it simply proves a novelty: a short-lived diversion that deflates once you realize you'd rather be playing a great, standalone tablet game -- or with better toys, for that matter. That's certainly the case with the HeroClix TabApp and the recently released sets of compatible Marvel Comics figurines, which span X-Men and The Avengers. Much as they're properly recognized by the free app, the game experience itself proves terrible throughout.
