IIRC JULIA is supposed to go through a graphic overhaul at some point in the future, character design frequently attracted criticism, and since we're on the subject, this time the game has been included through the devs rather than the (dick) publisher as it happened for Groupees KISS bundle - so they're gonna get paid.
I Get This Call Every Day was (is?) a free game that turned payware when the dev lost his day job as a consequence of releasing the game. I was sure I'd read about it on RPS but couldn't find it so maybe it was somewhere else.
Dinner Date also got its share of praise a couple years ago. I'm not familiar with the other titles, but the iOS version of Dédale seemed to have great metacritic scores FWIW.
Oh, just FTR, RPS coverage is usually linked in the OP, saves a bit of googling.
