In early 2012, Retailer GAME seemed destined to join Woolworths in whatever place high-street brands go to die. Phones4u has ended up there since, but GAME was rescued from the brink of collapse and last year, made something of a triumphant return to the London Stock Exchange. New console launches...

I don't do a lot of game reviews because to me they usually are endless variations on a theme. Leaf on the Wind (US$2.99) is a clever exception, and a game I am really enjoying.
