(N.B. The monthly games chart is based on titles released and reviewed in the last month. The apps chart is based on titles reviewed over the last three months. Hence, this is not a cumulative chart and earlier released titles may have higher scores.)

Via the selfless law-enforcing antics of the ninth-placed Kaptain Brawe, G5 Entertainment has helped set the tone for a January chart packed with virtual heroism. Bounding over turn-based battler Hero Academy and into the #2 slot is 5th Cell’s equally altruistic platformer Run Roo Run. Meanwhile, Star Marine: Infinite Ammo’s brand of semi-automatic justice has earned GlitchSoft’s old skool side-scroller a home at #4 on our rundown of the highest-rated iPhone games of the past month. And if you still find yourself crying out for a knight in shining armour, Hutch's visceral Smash Cops is parked in tenth place, ready to provide backup.

Between them, January’s Top 10 apps have the makings of one helluva iPhone welcome pack. AppAdvice’s interactive AppStart for iPhone guide provides an overview of your new Apple device, My Downloader Pro will take care of your file-sharing needs, while iPIN - Secure PIN & Password Safe keeps your personal data away from prying eyes. If that wasn't enough to ensure your transition to the iOS platform went smoothly, SocialBox and Groupshot will ensure your pictures are the sexiest snaps on your feed, and Our Everyday Lunch for iPhone provides delicious recipes to keep your body in peak screen-touching condition.

We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the  Quality Index  now.
