We're big proponents of originality in games. But there's no denying the simple thrill of an expertly executed conversion.

When a developer manages to capture the essence of a game designed for the big screen on a pocket device, it can feel like nothing less than magic. The vagaries of a touch-driven control system make such moments quite rare, but they're out there.

Either way, they're all brilliant games.
