Bucketz and Song Pop are the top-reviewed iPhone games for July
If you were wondering what the best-reviewed iPhone games on the web last month were, here's the iPhone Quality Index round-up for July to fill you in.

The iPhone Quality Index boasts over 200,000 reviews from websites like 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and AppGamer, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each iPhone title.

Don't kick the Bucketz

Adopting a refreshingly irreverent, fourth wall-breaking tone, Picnic Hippo Studios's casual physics game Bucketz finished July 2012 atop the iPhone Qi game chart.

Meanwhile, Song Pop, in second place on this month's hit parade, takes the great British pub quiz out of the pub and puts it in your pocket. Featuring online cross-platform competitive play, Song Pop tasks you with identifying the names of tunes and artists before your opponent.

Hot on its heels is the frenetic 2D shoot-'em-up Bug Princess 2 Black Label from cult Japanese developer Cave. This old skool blaster is actually a remix of Bug Princess 2, but with the addition of all-new God and Boss Rush modes.

N.B. While we only display the average score to one decimal place, the list is generated to further significant figures. We just don't show them all.

And, naturally, this is a static graph based on live listings which are subject to constant change as new releases and reviews emerge.

In order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, however, we will continue to round up the best of the iPhone games released each month to provide the definitive Quality Index top ten.
