The Unofficial 2016 Review Mop-Up

Hey, friends. The holidays are fast approaching, and that means it's time for what is becoming a yearly tradition for me. While everyone (including the App Store) is taking some well-deserved time off, I keep on working. What I like to do during this time of light releases is to find games from the last few months that were worthy of reviews but never got one on TA.

In the past few years, I've found these myself, but I thought that this year, I'd put it to our fine community to help me out. What games from, say, September onward do you wish TouchArcade had a review for? I'll take on as many as I can. Some worthy games will get some attention, I'll have something to work on through the holidays, and you'll have something to read. It's win-win-win!

So yeah, I'm looking for suggestions in here. Hopefully not just from the devs of the games either! Thanks for the help, everyone!

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Probably a bit too old by now, but Planar Conquest?

And I'd kind of like to know why The Trail made it into Apple's top 10 for the year.

The game I really like at the moment is Conduct This! from Northplay, it's a blast and I can't stop playing it, it's only 10 days old or so but I love it and for me it's one of the better games this year so it deserves a review for sure.

Two other games I really liked were Duck Roll and Rubek, two great puzzle games with their own style.

Great shout. I'd also like to see a bit more depth on Le Parker as the forum thread seems a bit split.

Will anyone dare to touch the poo with Galaxy on Fire 3? It's been, er, divisive. I have no opinion by the way - never played any in the series!

I think the train has sailed on Planar Conquest, sorry. As for Galaxy, someone on staff is already working on that, I think.

Feral Fury? Oh and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has been my most played game for ages now, so that, too.
